The online dating platform SneakyNeighbors.com advertises with free registration. But it does not promise that you can meet potential suitors. Furthermore, there is little advertising or content to draw new users in. It lacks information, and only displays female profiles. These dating profiles could be operated by chatbots or website moderators. The dating profiles themselves contain similar information. The content of these appears to have been recycled, to stretch the content of the platform. There are no profiles shown on the visitor section, so, traffic to the website could be low.
There is a clear indicator of the presence of automated chatbots. The Terms and Conditions state SneakyNeighbors.com uses moderators to chat with unsuspecting users. Profiles are fictitious, and operators are playing fictional roles. However, the goal of SneakyNeighbors.com is only entertainment. This is admitted by the creators behind the platform White Mountain Solutions BV, from Krimpen aan den IJssel, in The Netherlands. Interacting with these profiles is at the customer’s own risk, and there are no criminal background checks.
The following is stated 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; (ii) we do not conduct background or criminal record checks on users, or verify their identity, and you accept all risk of interacting with people via the Service (on or off of the Service).
Profiles marked with a heart icon: […] are fictional entertainers’ profiles rather than members profiles, physical contact with these profiles is not possible.
The platform states that SneakyNeighbors.com has no recurring subscription, and your credit card is not charged. They offer a selection of payment methods, one of them being PayPal. The platform offers packages, the most expensive package being $300.00, for 300 messages. Sending a message on this platform costs $1.00. There is a member’s area, and they operate a “credits” system. Given the lack of information and reviews about the company online, it would be at your own risk if you decide to use this website’s services. It is unlikely that you will meet a potential suitor.
Chats are not real
The free basic membership offers little in return. Without purchasing credits, you will not have full use of the website. But this depends on if the user enjoys talking to fictitious profiles and chatbots. Those unfamiliar with dating websites, or lack experience in this regard, may have difficulties spotting the scam. Finding unexpected attention will entice users to buy credits, believing they are talking to a genuine person. However, it will be a fictitious profile operated by a fake chat operator, or a chatbot.
