Once registration has been established messages, start to pour in very quickly. In order to read any of these messages, a user has to buy credits so that they can view and respond. This would be fine if it were a real person looking for love like they are. However, what the user doesn’t know is that their chat partner is not a real person but an employee of the company. In this case, it could also be a computer-generated bot!
These employees (or bots) are only there to entice the user into a long and endless chat to get more money from them. It’s easy to buy more credits to keep sending messages if you don’t know that it’s a fake conversation. Also, the employees do not identify themselves as a fictitious person.
It is mentioned that the profiles will have a small logo identifying them as “online cupids” however, there is no way to realize this unless you read the terms and conditions. And let’s be honest, who does this? No one. So we did the work for you.
The terms and conditions clearly state that
“FOR AMUSEMENT PURPOSES ONLY

Messages sent from our Online Cupids® service may be automatically generated with no human involvement, and Online Cupids® messages and/or correspondence may be generated by third-parties hired or contracted by Us. You understand, acknowledge, and agree that no physical meeting will ever take place between you and the individuals providing our Online Cupids® service, and that the exchange of messages between you and the Online Cupids® profile is for entertainment purposes...”
The operator FlirtNextDoor.com is located in Nicosia, Cyprus. When companies like this are located overseas, this is just another sign that it could be a scam. By being outside the US, they can escape jurisdiction if there is ever a problem with the law.
These are enough signs for us to know that this a rip-off and an untrustworthy company.
