The online dating portal ClubHouseFlings.com looks nice. On the landing page, we see the screen for free registration. Plus, we see an image of an attractive woman. That gives us the impression that we can find a match here. Additionally, it seems that dates are not just possible but a common thing. The appearance of the site is comparable to a casual dating portal. So, we assume that the users are open-minded and active. To join the website, the free registration must be completed first. Also, the process of creating a profile takes only a few minutes.
Virtual profiles for your “entertainment”
The first impression of ClubHouseFlings.com is good. But on the screen for registration, we read a note which took our attention. This website uses fictional profiles to entertain you. The profiles are fake and show fictional people with whom a date in real-life is impossible. It is fair that the operator shows this information before registration. However, it does not change the fact that this platform uses computer-generated virtual profiles. Plus, they do not mention that all profiles on the site are fake. That seems to be the reality here.
We did some research and found many negative reviews. Former users mention that all profiles are moderated. Normally, we would call this platform a rip-off with a fake chat. The information is provided before registration. So, that is not the actual problem. Users could notice this piece of information. But it is the purpose of the moderation that makes this website is scam. The computer-generated virtual profiles stimulate new users into a chat, for which costs occur. A user needs “tokens” and a premium-membership to chat with a fake profile.
We found the following note in the terms and conditions
THIS SITE USES FANTASY PROFILES AND MESSAGES CALLED: ONLINE CUPIDS®”: You understand, acknowledge, and agree that some of the user profiles posted on this site, may be fictitious and operated by the Site or its contractors
Negative reports on the internet
Bots will send many messages to new users. But the messages will not contain the information that this profile is fictional. Also, the fake profiles are not clearly marked as such, according to reviews on the internet. The user will be persuaded to make a purchase. A subscription on this website will renew automatically, if it is not terminated in time. That does not have to be bad, but according to our research, it will end in a subscription rip-off.
On the internet, this website has a terrible reputation. Former users had a bad experience with this site and express a warning. They point out that all profiles are fake, and it is not possible to find a real match. Plus, many reviews mention a subscription trap. They explain that the automatic renewal is used to trap a user in a permanent payment with high costs.
