The landing page of ExtremeChat.com presents itself with a poor design that doesn’t shine with originality. The picture of a beautiful girl with a leash around her neck makes it quite clear who the target audience is for this site. Apart from that, there is nothing really interesting on the page. If we scroll down to the bottom, we will find a link to the “Help” section. Here in this section, potential subscribers have some additional information.
To access the member’s area, you would need to create a profile. In order to do so, you must complete a simple registration form that consists of just 4 mandatory fields: username, password, email, and age. After that, you will receive a confirmation link in your email. This step is not mandatory, but if you decide to do so, you will be granted 100 coins that will allow you to test the platform for free.
The coin system
Coins are virtual items that users can exchange for messages or other services. They can be bought in bundles of different sizes. The price of a single coin seems ridiculous, but there is a catch. Every single message that a user sends will require 50 coins, which approximately equals $1.5. The internet is full of reviews from people who have wasted a real fortune on this site in just a few minutes. Every conversation can quickly turn into an expensive experience.
Selling expensive coins to users is not a scam if the site is a genuine dating platform. It becomes a scam when members don’t get anything from what they’ve paid for. Users are tricked into thinking that after buying coins, they’ll be able to chat with other real users from the site. Unfortunately, they’ll mostly be interacting with professional chat operators who are impersonating a real user from the platform. As a result, it’s mostly impossible for genuine users to meet someone for an actual date through this site.
