The landing page of DatingTuga.com is well organized with a minimalistic appeal. We find some information about the website’s functions and features, topped by the registration form. We proceeded to sign up, but to our surprise, the confirmation mail did not arrive in the first 30 minutes. Nevertheless, we could still access the website. The first page that showed up, after the registration process, was the dashboard, which included many users of the website.
Too good to be true
To engage in a conversation with other members, or just to send a like, you need credits. You can gain some by completing small tasks, such as enabling notifications, adding a profile photo, or opening the link in your confirmation mail. The review started well. We explored some of the website functions. We found that the website is very well organized, and the user interface is very smooth and intuitive.
Although all seemed to go well, we had a strong suspicion about the users of the platform. Their personal information seemed a little bit too unnatural. So, we decided to search the website’s pages, for any proof of the use of fake profiles, and we found what we needed. We can now say that DatingTuga.com, although well-designed, is a fake chat rip-off.
Here is the excerpt from the Terms and Conditions
The Company operates system profiles (i.e. profiles connected to Accounts which have been created by the Company and which are either operated by contractors of the Company who impersonate the persons portrayed in such profiles or by a system designed to interact with users) and expressly reserves the right to chat with users through such system profiles in order to enhance the users’ entertainment experience.
After exhausting our initial credits, the website immediately directed us to the payment page, where you can buy credits to keep your experience running. Packages are divided into six classes, with different amounts of credits. We did some calculations and found out that even with the most convenient and expensive package, which costs $229.00, you are going to pay around $1.50, for a single message. That is crazy.
About the company
The website is owned by Meet Us Media LTD, from Nicosia, in Cyprus. We have already encountered this company in other reviews, and they all presented the same pattern. Fake chat rip-off with very expensive pricing plans. We advise caution, and common sense, before engaging in this, and other websites, with these same characteristics.
