March 30, 2022 The result of our xSocial.com review: Our test turned out to be an insufficient dating website.
Fake chat rip-off
Report on xSocial.com review
xSocial.com makes a solid first impression. The landing page shows some profile pictures. Moreover, the overview of the homepage is good. Well, this is because there are not too many details to absorb. This of course diminishes our initially positive first impression. In our experience, transparency is the primary sign of trustworthiness. From this point of view, this website no longer makes such a favorable impression.
xSocial.com is a casual dating portal. On the landing page, we read about a thrilling experience. This website seems to have a lot of members. In fact, we read that more than 350,000 singles are registered on this site. This is quite a lot, so the chances of meeting someone special here must be high too. We also see a selection of profile pictures. These profiles show female members only. Again, this creates an even more promising impression.
Finally, we found the gender ratio of this site. This is mentioned on the landing page. According to this information, there are substantially more female than male users. As a single male, you will be spoiled for choice. However, we also found a note we did not appreciate. This website uses so-called computer-generated virtual profiles.
Such profiles usually tend to be fake. This lowers our first impression of the site even further. There could be a strong risk of falling for fake chat. The portal operator is eXtra Dimensions Ltd, which is based in Nicosia, Cyprus. The location of the company does not improve our perception. This is an oft-seen hotspot for scammers. We have already reported on a lot of other companies based here. And this operator has a bad reputation. We found several negative reviews on the internet.
Is xSocial.com a rip-off?
This online dating portal is a rip-off. On the landing page, we found a note about so-called computer-generated virtual profiles. These are fictitious profiles controlled by bots. Bots spur new members into chatting, for which costs will arise. In principle, moderated chat does not have to be bad. Here, however, users do not know about moderation. The note on the homepage does not call fake profiles what they really are. They are merely described as virtual profiles.
Additionally, moderation is not mentioned at all. So users still have to read the terms and conditions to find out what this really means. And the bots will actively encourage users to chat. They take the first step, but they will not disclose the truth about moderation. Reviews on the internet record exactly the same experience that we had.
Ultimately, the real goal of moderation is not the entertainment or amusement of users. In the first place, users of this website are not seeking entertainment, but rather a real match for a date. Second, the actual purpose of the bots is to increase the income of the operator. Costs will ensue for using the site. As users know nothing about the real nature of this platform, it is a scam. Users are tricked by misleading information. We found reviews on the internet showing former users were more than just disappointed.
The goal is to lure new members into a subscription rip-off. Costs will arise for paid membership. First, this is a waste of time. Second, automatic renewal is used to trap users in a recurring payment cycle. The site operator makes the process of termination a challenge. Ultimately, users cannot affect termination within the given deadline. So their subscriptions are renewed again and again.
Scroll down to read the details of our xSocial.com review.
Registration is simple and completed within a very short period of time. Only little information is needed to create a profile here. As far as registration is concerned, there is one important aspect we have to mention. On the screen for registration, we read that this website offers 100% free adult dating. This is a lie: using this website is not free of charge. After registration, substantial costs will arise for using the site. The platform uses misleading advertising to lure new members into a scam.
After this step, we can enter a few details on our profile. First, we choose a username. We also have to provide our location, gender and sexual orientation. Moreover, we have the opportunity to upload a profile picture (which is not compulsory). Then we have to provide a short description of ourselves. This description has to contain at least five words. This is of course not very many. We uploaded a few words and proceeded with our registration without a profile picture.
In a nutshell, we created a profile without any useful information about ourselves. Other members do not know what we look like. And our character is a well-kept secret. So it would be somewhat strange if we received messages from other profiles right away.
Members’ area on xSocial.com
We were able to visit the platform without verifying our profile. It is recommended that users verify their accounts, but this is not required for them to check the portal out. Our first stop is the members´ area. The portal does have a good overview. At the top of the platform, we see different areas of the site. Furthermore, all features are easy to use and self-explanatory. Using the site is simple. And its design is quite appealing, even though it is not the latest.
This website has a lot of members. And its profiles look more than promising. It is possible for us to visit all sections of the website, including all the users’ profiles. This could of course sound like a great aspect in that a free account allows such an extensive first experience. But it could also entail risk for others.
Again, we did not have to verify our account. Nor did we have to enter a single piece of useful information about ourselves. So fake profiles could be a problem here. It is also possible to stalk other members, should this be desired. But this issue does not arise here. Our research shows profiles on this site are fake anyway. There are no genuine members to find. All site profiles are fake. Remember that the website admits the use of computer-generated virtual profiles on the landing page. It transpires that all profiles are fake.
Within minutes of our acquiring free membership, we received our first message. This looked like a cheap fake. Superficially, it sounded more than promising. A casual date with sexual intercourse was mooted. But this message is patently fake. Since we did not provide one iota of information about our appearance, the message’s offer sounded somewhat less than bona fide.
Our research proves bots send us messages. Their goal is to nudge us into chatting. If we want to reply, we need paid membership. And paid membership will end in a trap. This website is a scam with fake chat and a subscription trap.
Terms and conditions of xSocial.com
Extract from the terms and conditions from the xSocial.com website. Current status of the terms and conditions as of March 30, 2022.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, by and throughout your use, access and interactions to and with the Services and related content, You may interact with content generated by, or with the assistance of, automated online accounts (“Bots” or “Automated Profiles”), where none – or substantially none – of the actions and posts of that Automated Profile are the result of, or arise in connection with, a natural person’s profile or otherwise User Content.
Costs on xSocial.com
Registration is free. Then free basic membership is provided. This free basic membership allows users access to quite a lot of features. With this kind of freedom, we were able to visit all areas of the website. And it is possible for us to read messages. This might sound like a positive aspect. But it is in fact part of a scam. A new member will receive numerous messages from other profiles. These profiles are fake. Their messages are a trick to lure new members into a trap.
Costs will arise for a subscription for premium membership. Three different categories are offered. One month of premium membership costs 29.95 USD. It runs for one month and will be renewed automatically at the same price. A 3-month subscription is also available. This form of premium membership costs 19.98 USD per month. In summary, it costs 59.95 USD for the whole period. And a 6-month version of premium membership is also available. This form of membership costs 16.66 USD per month. All in all, this subscription costs 99.95 USD. The six-month subscription is not extended automatically.
This website allows one-time and monthly payments. Payments can be made by credit card or Major Brand Gift card. The method of payment does not affect the price of the subscription. However, premium membership is a waste of money. This website is a waste of time. All profiles on the site are fictitious. So there is no chance of meeting someone real here.
Conclusion from our xSocial.com experience
The online dating platform xSocial.com is a rip-off. This website uses fictitious profiles. The use of these profiles is admitted on the landing page. However, this does not, for all sorts of reasons, change our unfavorable opinion. First, the note does not call the fake chat what it really is. Fake profiles are called computer-generated virtual profiles. Neither does moderation receive any mention. But bots in fact control these fake profiles. This website does not employ fake chat operators. And just incidentally, we found negative reviews of the site on the internet.
The bots will encourage new members to chat. During this process, they will admit nothing about moderation. And fake profiles are not marked as fake. Ultimately, users are duped into making purchases. This is the goal of moderation. Costs will arise for paid membership, which will end in a trap. A subscription is renewed automatically if the user does not terminate it on time. As the site operator makes termination difficult, this is a cheeky scam. The website operator is eXtra Dimensions Ltd, which is based in Nicosia, Cyprus.
