We start our research and have a look at the terms and conditions. Most of the time, it is telling us what we need to know. Like already suspected, the website is a scam with faked profiles and chats.
You should always read the terms and conditions. It will tell you everything you need to know about a site.
Here they admit they use fictitious/fantasy profiles operated by their site for entertainment and compliance purposes. It also says that these "Love Stars" may contact you by email, instant message, and SMS for purposes of encouraging further participation on the site.
They claim that they use this interaction to encourage full participation in the site’s services. However, we know that this is an excuse for creating fake profiles and sending you fake messages to make you think that you will have a real online dating experience.
Straight from the terms and conditions
“You understand, acknowledge, and agree that some of the user profiles posted on this site may be fictitious or models or bots related to our "Love Stars" (LS) program. You understand, acknowledge, and agree that the information, text, and pictures contained in the LS profiles do not pertain to any actual person or member, but are included for entertainment purposes only. You further understand, acknowledge, and agree that, from time-to-time, LS may contact Website and Services users and members via electronic messaging, including for example, email, instant messages, and SMS, for purposes of encouraging further or broader participation in our site's Services and/or to monitor user activity.”
Legitimate sites have no need for this and do not do this. The presence of "Love Stars" is a significant warning sign of fraud.
But this is not all. Once you have finished registration, you will find out that the only way to view profiles, send messages, or watch cam shows is to buy a premium membership.
