This seems to be a great dating site, where adults can find hot chats and meetups with attractive singles, in their area. However, our review of DatingViking.com deemed it to be a fake chat scam. The Terms and Conditions page of this website reveals that the operator uses fictional profiles. These are operated by computer-programmed chatbots, or company staff. The operator is Force Vision Ltd, which is based in Ashford, in the United Kingdom.
Because users are not adequately informed that most members they interact with are fake chat operators, or chatbots. So, we view this as a scam. Additionally, this website is a rip-off because users must pay to upgrade to a premium subscription, if they want to send messages. This site is a rip-off, as users need to buy a subscription to chat. This could easily turn into a subscription trap. Overall, in our opinion, it is very unlikely that you will encounter any genuine people on this site. It is even less likely that you will find a real date here.
Full of fake profiles
The first thing we did when conducting our review was read through the entire Terms and Conditions page. We saw that the website operator admits to using fake accounts, and fake chat operators. In the Terms, they refer to fictional profiles as “automated online accounts.” These profiles appear to be genuine users and are quite realistic. However, nothing about them is sincere, and they cannot be contacted outside of the site.
The Terms and Conditions also state that these profiles can be identified by a “Online Hottie” tag, which will appear on the profile pages of fake accounts. In our experience, every single account that contacted us, or was available to view, has this tag. This means that none of the profiles we viewed were real. Also, finding this tag is quite difficult. Even though we were on the look-out for it, it was easy to miss. Users with no knowledge about the fictional profiles would have no idea to look for this indicator.
From the Terms and Conditions
Please, note that while using Our Services You may sometimes interact with automated online accounts and/or fictitious profiles, which its interactions have been generated by or with the assistance of automated programs or scripts, or by real persons that have been contracted or employed by Us (hereinafter, referred to as “Bots”, “Automated Profiles” or “Fictitious profiles”).
In compliance with the Bolstering Online Transparency Act (when applicable) or any other equivalent regulation, We added tags with the nickname “Online Hottie” to all the existent Automated Profiles, so they are easily identifiable for You.
