The landing page of MyLocalCrush.com shows some profile pictures. We could assume that those people are real and also real members of this platform. But this impression is entirely wrong. All of the profiles in the member’s pool are fake.
On the landing page, we also read the information about free registration. To register is really for free, but that does not mean that the use of the portal is for free. After registration, a user needs to buy credits first. Those credits are needed to send messages to others.
Well, this is how the rip off works. The landing page looks great and shows some attractive profile pictures. This way, the user will get convinced to become a member of this scam portal. When the registration is finished, new members will receive many messages from others. Regard to some reviews about this website that we found on the internet, it takes only a few minutes, and the post box is full of them.
Those messages come from fake operators that operate fake profiles. They are used to entice the user to a chat without any sense or goal. Physical contact is not possible with any member of MyLocalCrush.com, as all profiles are fake.
The fake chat scam is in 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.”
A typical user will assume that all profiles are real. Because of that, the user wants to answer all those messages and buys credits. The price for one message is quite high. After a while, it turns out that the user pays much money for conversations with a fictitious person.
MyLocalCrush.com is operated by the Meteor Interactive B.V., which is in Utrecht, in the Netherlands. This company is well-known on the internet for its rip off a network of fake chat dating websites.
