The platform FunSeduction.com offers free registration. But there is very little that can be done for free on this platform. Those users who want to chat must buy “credits” in advance. But the prices are expensive. The operator, White Castle Design BV, charges for every message sent by the customers.
We do not consider a page to be a rip-off for being expensive. Our experience is that in many cases, reputable online dating platforms are also pricey. The problem with this specific site is that they charge the customers for chatting with fictitious profiles. Therefore, we consider this to be a fake chat scam.
During our research we found a very revealing paragraph. This paragraph is part of the text in the footer of the landing page. We read that FunSeduction.com is a website designed for pleasure and “entertainment”. This site contains fictional profiles for entertainment only. This means that any physical contact with these profiles is not possible. Unfortunately, we know from experience that few users will take the time to read the fine print.
We also carefully read the terms and conditions. We found further evidence about the fake chat scam. The company admits that they create fictitious profiles. Furthermore, they admit to using these profiles to send messages to the users. The reason is to stimulate the customers to chat and, therefore, to spend their money.
The following note is from the terms and conditions
The Company explicitly reserves the right to send Messages on the Website through self-created Profiles. These are fictitious Profiles with which no physical arrangements are possible.
To send messages the users must purchase credits in advance. Although these credits are expensive, at least the payment for the credits is non-recurring. This is something positive because it means that there is no risk of a subscription rip-off.
