The online dating portal HappyMatches.com seems to be a solid choice. On the landing page, we read about the great service. The advertisement sounds good. Now, some reviews on the internet confirm the information that we found on the homepage. But, most of the reports disagree. Former users complain about moderation. So, we read about fake profiles that are controlled by fake operators. They will get in touch with new members to encourage them to make a purchase. High costs will occur for the use of the site, right after the registration is done.
Further to information found on the internet, the profiles are fake. But, the fake profiles are not marked as such. Also, the fake operators will not identify as fictional people. However, former users point out that the chance of success, in having a real date, is low to zero. Their impressions indicate that this website is a rip off with a fake chat. Now, in the legal information, we found that this portal is for entertainment only. This is a common synonym for a fake chat. That is enough proof to call this portal a fake chat scam.
We found the following note in the terms and conditions
THIS SITE IS FOR ENTERTAINMENT AND INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, HappyMatches.com PROVIDES THE PORTAL AND SERVICES ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS AND GRANTS NO WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES OR THE PORTAL (INCLUDING ALL CONTENT CONTAINED THEREIN).
Fake chat and more
According to the reviews on the internet, the profiles are fake and moderated. In the legal information, we read that the website is for entertainment purposes only. But, the actual purpose is to stimulate users to a chat for which costs will occur. The user will need a premium-membership that will extend automatically if it is not terminated in time. Although this is not unusual, here it seems to be a subscription rip off. The operator is Z9 Tech Private Ltd and located in Singapore. This is an often-chosen location for companies that lure users into a subscription trap.
