The online dating platform ForumOfDesires.com advertises with free registration. On the landing page, we see some profile pictures and erotic content. That looks promising, but it is all a big fake. The profiles on the homepage are fake and show fictional people. This website uses fictional profiles which are moderated for the purpose of entertainment. This is not the result of research, because this information is shown on the landing page. But they only mention that this website is an entertainment service with fictitious profiles. So, we know what that means.
The profiles on this site are fake and managed by fake chat operators. Their duty is to stimulate new members into a chat for which costs will occur. According to the reviews on the internet, many former users did not know about the scale of the moderation. The statement on the landing page only explains the fake chat scam. We found out more in the legal information. The members´ pool is full of fake profiles which show fictional people. But the fake profiles are not marked as such. There is not one real person here.
We found the following note in the terms and conditions
The Service we offer is a digital fantasy chat for adults with the sole purpose of realistic roleplaying and to stimulate real life discussions. The Service uses fictitious profiles and animators who are not identified separately for the entertainment of the user.
Do not waste your time here
The fake chat operators who control the fictional profiles will not identify as fictitious persons. So, the user does not know if the profiles are real or not. There is no way to spot that. According to reviews, users must pay a lot of money to send messages. Costs will occur for a gold-membership. At least this does not appear to be a rip-off with a subscription trap. However, the membership is a waste of money. The operating company is Info Media International AG, who are based in Zug, Switzerland.
