At first sight, MyMapleMatch.com seems a decent choice. The site’s advertising offers free registration and claims to be home to 4 million members. It further promises to provide all the tools needed to find what you are looking for quickly. For this review, we created a free account and familiarized ourselves with all the features provided. Moreover, we carefully studied the terms and conditions and searched the internet for user experiences. Sadly, our research quickly revealed that MyMapleMatch.com is nothing but a rip-off.
Extremely expensive experience
While signing up and creating a personal profile are simple and free, using the site’s chat feature costs a lot of money. Users who wish to send messages to other members must first purchase “credits”, which are offered in several different bundles. These “credits” can then be used to pay for sending messages in chats. Shockingly, every single sent message costs a minimum of CAD 1.5. A proper chat conversation can consequently cause tremendous costs to mount fast.
We found high costs are not the only problem here. In fact, the site’s members’ area only contains fictitious profiles created and controlled by professional fake chat operators. Chatting with the site’s “members” is therefore for entertainment purposes only, and it is simply not possible to arrange actual offline dates here.
The following excerpt is from the Terms and Conditions
mymaplematch.com is designed for pleasure and entertainment. The site contains fictive profiles and are marked with a heart icon and are for entertainment purposes only. Physical contact with these profiles is not possible.
In our experience, fake chat operators are very skilled at pretending to be flirty singles looking for real dates. They will cheekily trick users into long conversations and try to lure as many chat messages as possible out of them. Obviously, the sole purpose of this is to make innocent users spend a lot of money on overpriced “credits”. We call this a rip-off and a fake chat scam.
The company responsible for MyMapleMatch.com is White Castle Design BV, which is located in Groot-Ammers in the Netherlands. This operator has already received a lot of negative user reviews on the internet. To avoid losing a lot of money on entirely pointless chats, we advise you to stay clear of all dating portals run by this untrustworthy company.
