The online dating site InstaFlirt.com has a good first appearance. Here, you can register for free, plus we read on the landing page that you can find your match here. That gave us the impression of a solid portal which has got a lot of real members. But that turned out to be completely wrong as this site is nothing less than a cheeky rip-off.
InstaFlirt.com is a fake chat which means that in the members’ pool there are only fake profiles. Those false profiles are operated by fake operators that entice the user to a conversation. To be clear about that, a moderated chat does not necessarily have to be something bad, but in this case it really is. People register here to find a match for a date.
Right after the registration, which is free of charge, costs will appear for a paid membership which is offered as a subscription. At this point, the fake operators will get in touch with a new member and send plenty of messages. But a new member cannot simply answer to all those messages, which a normal user assumes are real people. The problem is that fake operators will not identify as a fictional person.
The fake chat is mentioned in the terms and conditions
“You understand, acknowledge, and agree that the information, text, and pictures contained in the Online Cupids® service profiles do not pertain to any actual person, but are included for entertainment and educational purposes only. Life events, experiences, interests, and geographic locations are fictitious.”
All the messages of the operated fake profiles entice the user to get a paid membership, because reading or writing messages is not possible with a free basic-membership. Firstly, a paid membership is not worth a penny, as it seems to be impossible to find one real person here. Secondly, the premium-membership might end up in a trap, as the subscription of the paid membership will extend automatically. An automatic renewal does not have to be something bad, but in this case, it seems to be part of the rip-off by the company InstaFlirt. The operator of the portal is located in California, USA.
