The professional front page of ShalomDates.com really makes you believe that this is a genuine and safe dating platform. This seems to be the place to get in touch with other Jewish singles looking for a serious relationship. However, finding other singles to date is not that simple. Everything seems to indicate that most of the profiles in the members’ area are not real. ShalomDates.com is a fake chat scam.
It does not take a long time to create a profile. After doing so, you can use the search function to find other members. On ShalomDates.com you do not even have to search for other members yourself, since many people will send messages to you. ShalomDates.com informs you about incoming messages, but you cannot just read them right away. To unlock the chat feature, a paid membership is required. There is something more you should know.
Here is an excerpt from 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.
The so-called “test profiles” turn out to be fake chat moderators. We are told that they only test the functionality of the dating platform. But in fact, they try to manipulate the users in the chat. Even if you create an empty profile without any photo on ShalomDates.com, you will still receive several messages. The fake chat operators are the people sending these messages. Users will feel the need to upgrade their membership, since they cannot communicate with others as regular members.
Apparently, every dating platform run by Cintilet Limited offers a VIP membership that makes chatting possible. Our previous experience with this company from Dublin in Ireland, helps us to understand how ShalomDates.com works. The scam platform does not seem to be well-known and has barely received any reviews online. The VIP membership extends automatically unless you cancel it 5 days prior to the final day.
