DiscreetlyMeet.com claims to be a casual dating platform and shows erotic content on the landing page. We also read about free registration and how this website has bad transparency. Due to prior experience with dating portals, having poor transparency is not a good sign. After doing some research, we found that this site uses fake profiles. The use of fake profiles is stated on the landing page, which is probably the only positive thing about the site. The use of fake profiles is of course negative.
The operator of this site refers to fake profiles as “fantasy profiles” that are created for the purpose of entertainment. However, the purpose of entertainment is another misleading piece of information. The goal of the so-called fantasy profiles is not the purpose of entertainment, but to increase the income of the operator. Chatbots operate these fake profiles. While doing online research, we found many negative reviews. Former users also mention very high costs for using the website.
The following is stated in the terms and conditions
You understand, acknowledge, and agree that the information, text, and pictures contained in the Online Cupids® service profiles do not pertain to any actual person, but are included for entertainment and educational purposes only. Life events, experiences, interests, and geographic locations are fictitious. Nothing contained in any Online Cupids® service profile or message is intended to describe or resemble any real person – living or dead. Any similarity between Online Cupids® user profile descriptions or images and any person is purely coincidental.
This site uses fake chat
We found proof of a scam in the Terms & Conditions. The site operator explains that all fake profiles are marked with a certain symbol. According to online reviews, every profile has that symbol. Plus, without reading the terms, users would not know the meaning behind the symbols. Chatbots will take the first step in engaging users without revealing to users that they are chatting with a bot.
After registration, users will be charged for premium memberships. It is worthless because of the fake chat service. Additionally, this site is a scam with a subscription trap. A trial membership will be offered that will extend to a pricey subscription afterward. This cannot be avoided. The site operator is Deniro Marketing LLC, which is based in California, USA.
