When you visit the front page of UnitedFlirtingStates.com, you must accept an announcement that is shown as a pop-up window. Since there is too much text, a lot of people will just accept without reading all the statements.
We took our time to read through the whole text and noticed a sentence that worries us
I acknowledge that the Website includes fantasy profiles created and operated by the Website that may communicate with me for promotional and other purposes.
To get a better understanding of this statement you can check the terms and conditions. Most people do not take a closer look.
This is what we found while reading the terms and conditions
Yes, we use fictious profiles for testing behavioral/social studies and for entertainment purposes. The profiles posted on the Website are fictious and are associated with our “Fantasy Entertainment” (FE) service. This Digital Fantasy service is part of our efforts to stimulate conversation with users to encourage further and broader participation in all Website’s services, including the posting of additional information or pictures to our users’ profiles.
Although the operator points out that UnitedFlirtingStates.com is a moderated service, not every user is aware of this. In fact, users are not supposed to understand what is going on so that the scam can be successful. What the operator calls a “Fantasy Entertainment service” is truly an attempt to manipulate the users in the chat, where sending messages comes at a price.
In the shop of UnitedFlirtingStates.com users can purchase tokens that serve as the currency for the dating site. Every message in the chat costs one token. If you buy many tokens at once, there is a small discount. It does not matter how many tokens you buy a message will always cost you at least one dollar. Users who want even more can also sign up for a premium-membership which lasts a certain amount of time and grants a few advantages. This membership is non-recurring, so UnitedFlirtingStates.com is not a subscription rip-off.
Just a fake chat rip-off
The fictitious profiles mentioned in the terms and conditions are handed over to fake chat operators, who hold conversations with the users. It is their job to make chatting as pleasant and exciting as possible, so that the users spend more money. They try to hide their identity and deceive the users for the sake of money. UnitedFlirtingStates.com is a fake chat scam.
UnitedFlirtingStates.com is operated by Mountain Top Digital AG. The company is based in Zug, a Swiss city located in an area that is known to be a tax haven. According to the lack of user reviews, UnitedFlirtingStates.com has not received much attention yet. However, we have dealt with the operating company before.
