Before entering the landing page of CopaRoot.com, we are asked to confirm an announcement. While it seems like we are just being informed that this dating platform is only for adults, you must take a closer look to find out what is wrong here.
This is what we read
ii) The purpose of this website is to enable (erotic) chat conversations between fictitious profiles and users and contains fictitious profiles. Physical meetings are not possible with these fictitious profiles.
Many users will just accept this announcement without properly reading it, and they are not aware of the existence of fake profiles. The landing page makes you believe that this is a genuine dating platform with a huge member base. The registration is free of charge, and the operator even guarantees satisfaction. This is reason enough for many to sign up.
The usage of fake profiles on CopaRoot.com already tells us a lot. We check the terms and conditions, where the operator elaborates on the fictitious profiles a bit more. We read about these profiles, but others do not take a closer look.
This information is well-hidden in the terms and conditions
5.3. Gate Switch Development B.V. explicitly reserves the right to send messages on coparoot.com through self-created profiles. These are fictitious profiles with which no physical agreements are possible.
Fake chat moderators control the fake profiles. They use these profiles to send messages to other people without being recognized as such. This seems rather random, until you find out about the expensive chat, where “credits” are required to send messages. One message will cost between 1.95 and 2.6 AUD, depending on how many credits you purchase at once. This is the reason why the fake chat operators pretend to be attractive members looking for a flirt. They manage to seduce the real users and make them pay more.
This is not our first negative experience with Gate Switch Development BV. This company based in the Dutch town of Deventer and is known for its rip-offs. We have already written reviews for several of their scam dating platforms.
