The dating portal TopDatesToday.com offers free registration and advertises with a satisfaction guarantee. Apparently, you can quickly and easily get in touch with love-seeking women from Eastern Europe here. Initially, the site appears to be a decent choice.
For this review, we created a free test account, carefully read the legal information, and did some research on the internet. Unfortunately, we quickly found several reviews from former users, who have had very disappointing experiences with this site. According to them, TopDatesToday.com is just a rip-off with a fake chat scam.
Unlike the registration, using the chat feature is not free. Whilst sending messages does not cost anything, opening and reading received messages is extremely expensive. First, users must purchase so-called “coins”, which is a virtual currency. These can be exchanged for opening received messages. As users must pay a certain number of “coins” for every single message they read, a proper conversation can quickly become shockingly costly.
Sadly, spending any money on this website seems to be a total waste. Online, we found several reports by former users, who claim that all female members are fictional. The displayed profiles are probably created by the site’s staff members and managed by professional fake chat operators. From our experience, they are only used to lure users into long conversations, to raise the site’s profits.
As it is completely impossible to meet fictional women in real life, all correspondence here is totally pointless and can never result in an actual date, let alone a relationship. In the terms and conditions, we found a statement that seems to confirm a fake chat scam.
