Regardless of what the company advertises on the landing page, the platform SpicyDistrict.com is not free. The operator, White Castle Design BV, does not mention that chatting on this platform costs a lot of money. Every single message may cost between 1.99 and 2.45 euros. With these prices, any conversation here will be expensive.
In order to stimulate customers to engage in a conversation, the operator will use fake profiles. This is something that the operator does on most of their dating websites. We have written several reviews about other sites from this company. In all of them, we have found the same fake chat scam.
A waste of money
To chat here, customers must buy some “credits” in advance. The operator offers different packages, but the price per message is very expensive. Luckily, the platform does not offer any subscription and therefore there is no risk of a subscription rip-off. Nevertheless, we have read several reviews from former users complaining that they spent a lot of money on credits before realizing that they were victims of a fake chat scam.
We do not think that charging for chatting should be considered a rip-off. The reason for considering this platform a rip-off is because the operator uses fictitious profiles to entice the customers to spend their money. This should be considered a fake chat scam. This operator seems to be an expert with this kind of fraud.
Evidence of a fake chat scam
Apart from the reference to fake profiles at the bottom of the landing page, we also found a paragraph in the terms and conditions mentioning the same. The company admits the use of self-created profiles. Also, they explicitly reserve the right to use these fictitious profiles to get in touch with the users of the platform.
The following statement can be found in the terms and conditions
The Company explicitly reserves the right to send Messages on the Website through self-created Profiles. These are fictitious Profiles with which no physical arrangements are possible.
