Though we had high hopes for MatchNow.net, our personal experience and research on the website found it to be a fake chat scam and rip-off. In our opinion, this site is a scam because users are not adequately informed that it is full of fictional profiles that are run by fake chat operators. There is a very low chance that genuine users will interact with any other real user here. Also, using this site is quite expensive. For each message users want to send out, they must use virtual credits, which are purchased in advance.
Fake “Chatdreams” profiles
The Terms & Conditions of MatchNow.net states that the purpose of the website is solely for engaging users in entertaining chats by using fake profiles, known as “Chatdreams.” Chatdreams are member profiles that are run by fake chat operators. These operators are either employees of the website or computerized chatting bots. It is, in fact, contrary to what most people would assume based on the homepage of the site.
Since we do not believe that users are well-informed about the true nature of this website, specifically that there are likely no real members here, we consider it to be a scam. The operator states that there is no way to arrange physical meetings with these fake profiles. The operator of this site is Flirt Kings, a company from Breda, the Netherlands.
From the Terms and Conditions
MatchNow is for chat conversations only. These conversations can take place between users and between users and fictional profiles (so-called Chatdreams). These Chatdreams profiles are fictitious. With Chatdreams, extensive online chat conversations and photos can be shared on this website, but physical arrangements are not possible.
As we previously mentioned, our review discovered that MatchNow.net is not free to use. Interacting with other members requires users to purchase expensive bundles of virtual credits. These credits can then be used to send messages and reply to chats. Due to each message requiring credits to be sent, users could easily find themselves spending huge amounts of money in just one or two conversations. Considering how most of the profiles here are fictional and run by fake chat operators or bots, this is an expensive rip-off.
