The online dating website PassionateChat.com advertises with a reasonable offer. We see on the landing page that the registration is for free. Additionally, we know some profile pictures of young, attractive female people. So we could assume that the member pool of this portal is full of good-looking and open-minded users.
Probably this is also what other visitors might think of this website. But after we did some research, we found out that we were wrong. PassionateChat.com is a fake chat rip off, and all the profiles on the landing page are not real.
The people on the profile pictures are a fictitious person. That means that it is not possible to have physical contact with them. The fake profiles are operated by fake operators that will entice the user to buy credits. Those credits are needed to start a conversation and to answer to messages of others. Every message you will send as a user can only reach a fake profile.
The rip off is mentioned 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.”
But the user does not get this essential information on the landing page. The fake operators will also not identify themselves as a fictitious person. In a nutshell, the user gets tricked from the very start.
The Meteor Interactive B.V. operates this website. We already had some negative experience with this scam company, plus it seems like we were not the only ones. On the internet are some reviews about the company, which is in Utrecht, in the Netherlands. The Meteor Interactive B.V. runs much more website than only this one. All of the dating portals of this company seem to be a fake chat and a rip-off.
