Users interested in BDSM, submission and domination, may think that MyBDSMDirectory.com is a good option for them. The website offers free registration, but this is the only free service on this platform. For anything else, customers need to pay. Charging for the use of an online dating platform should not be considered a rip-off. But paying to chat with fake chat operators, is a cheeky scam.
The operator of the platform, NetFanPix Ltd, runs an extensive network of online dating sites. In the past, we have done reviews of many of them. Altogether, we found different kinds of scams. In some cases, we discovered a potential subscription rip-off and, in many others, the evidence of a fake chat. In this case, the site employs fake chat operators.
The fake chat scam
Former users of different platforms run by this operator have written bad reviews about the company. These reviews can easily be found on the internet. Former users describe their experiences with fake chat operators. They lure users into purchasing a paid membership, which costs a lot. But this is not all. If reviews from former users are not enough, we also find clear evidence of the use of fake profiles in the terms and conditions.
We find the following note in the terms and conditions
From time to time, the Company employees (or employees of its parent or affiliated companies) may create test dating profiles for the purpose of checking and testing the functionality of our Website and Service to improve the quality and user experience for its Users.
Test dating profiles
Although the operator insists that these profiles are intended to test the functionality of the website, we know that this is not so. These “test profiles” are nothing but fake profiles used to send messages to new users. As the chat feature is only available for paying members, these messages will help to convince new users to become paying subscribers.Furthermore, all subscriptions renew automatically. This means that any subscription may become a potential subscription rip-off. This is one of the most dangerous traps for customers, and it may become a real nightmare.
