The online dating platform MySecretNeighbors.com gives a positive first impression. The site offers free registration and advertises with an attractive member’s area. This is supposedly packed with dirty-minded single women looking for new adventures. However, it only takes a quick look at the small print in the footer of the landing page, to find out that it is not worth it to register here.
We find the following note in the footer of the landing page
Mysecretneighbors.com is designed for pleasure and entertainment. Fictional entertainers’ profiles marked with a heart icon are for entertainment purposes only, physical contact with these profiles is not possible.
The chat feature on MySecretNeighbors.com is not free. Users must first purchase so-called “credits”, which can then be exchanged for sending messages on the chat. These are rather expensive, depending on the chosen “credit bundle”. Each message costs between $1.20 and $1.50. The fact that the profiles in the chat are fictitious, means that the whole chat is completely pointless and certainly not worth the money.
The role of skilled fake operators
Skilled fake operators are usually behind the fictional entertainment profiles. They are trained to lure new users into flirty chats and to keep each conversation going for as long as possible. Their job is to maximize the profits of the website, by getting users to send as many messages as possible. To achieve that, they regularly make false promises. They ask many questions and pretend to be genuinely interested in meeting up for a date. Therefore, users are skillfully tricked into very costly conversations, which can never result in real-life dates.
Users are not sufficiently informed
On the positive side, we must point out that MySecretNeighbors.com does at least mark the fictional profiles. However, we find the heart-symbol they used to be totally insufficient. It is not self-explanatory and likely does not even raise an eyebrow on this dating website. Therefore, the dating portal must be considered a rip-off. The operator of MySecretNeighbors.com is already well-known for its other scam websites. Meteor Interactive B.V. is based in Utrecht, in the Netherlands. They run a whole network of fake chat dating platforms. We cannot recommend any of them. They are not worth the time and the money.
