The online dating platform TeaseYourMatch.com offers a free registration and advertises with a high number of active members. At least, we assume that this site has a lot of members. The landing page shows many profiles of people of which we assume are active users. We cannot be sure about that, because the homepage does not offer more information about the site. Plus, on the very bottom of the landing page we read about an entertainment purpose of the portal.
Entertainment usually stands for a moderated chat in the case of dating portals. Because of that, we did some more research on the internet and checked the terms and conditions. We found some negative reviews about the site itself, and the operator. Both have a bad reputation on the internet.
This site is operated by White Castle Design B.V., located in Zoetermeer in the Netherlands. That is a very uncommon location for an operator of a dating site that is active in the US. Already, as we see it, the location of the operator is the first hint that this site is a rip-off.
Plus, the operator mentions the following note in the terms and conditions:
“5.2 TeaseYourMatch.com has entertainment as its goal, it is explicitly not the purpose of TeaseYourMatch.com to establish dates or meetings in person.
5.3 White Castle Design B.V. explicitly reserves the right to send messages on TeaseYourMatch.com through self-created profiles. These are fictitious profiles with which no physical agreements are possible. “
That is the evidence which proves that this site is a fake chat scam. It is not possible to find one real person here. The profile pictures on the landing page are surely a fake as well. All profiles show fictional people with which a meeting in real-life is not possible.
Fake operators will entice the user into a chat with their fake profiles, but they will not identify as a fictional person. A user will get tricked into paying a lot of money for a conversation with a fake profile.
