HotNeedyWomen.com is another online dating website from White Mountain Online Solutions BV. This operator does not have a good reputation. Typically, the company uses a fake chat scam on all its pages. And this is exactly what happens here. The operator uses fictional profiles in an attempt to stimulate users to engage in endless and pointless chats.
Written evidence of a fake chat scam
In the terms and conditions, we found that the operator says that the platform is an entertainment service. The operator mentions that the profiles on the website are fictional and that the users here will be interacting with operators. Although it is positive that the company mentions this, our experience is that most customers will not read this information. As the fictitious profiles are not marked as such, most users will not realize that they are chatting with a fake chat operator. Something that we consider a rip-off.
The following excerpt is from the terms and conditions
You also understand that this is a fantasy entertainment Service and that (i) the profiles are fictional, and your interactions will be with operators.
Expensive but useless conversations
The fake profiles are just a way to attract users to get involved in a chat. These chats will never lead to anything, as any physical contact with these fake chat operators is not allowed. However, they will cost the users a lot of money. Sending a message on this platform may cost between $1.19 and $1.49 USD. If a customer exchanges just a few messages with one of these fake profiles, he will end up paying a good amount of money.
Users will need to pay for credits in order to chat on the platform; however, these are not recurring. This is something very positive, as it prevents any kind of subscription rip-off. And when dealing with an operator with such a bad reputation, anything that helps to avoid risks of a rip-off is always most welcome.
