The online dating portal FlirtAndScore.com advertises with a solid offer. On the landing page, we see some profile pictures. Also, we see a large image of an attractive woman, which is for advertising. That gives us the impression that it will be easy to find a date. Additionally, we read about the open-minded community of the site. Altogether, we assume that this website will make causal dating simple. But we also read a notice about computer-generated virtual profiles.
That notice is shown on the screen for registration. Registration is not only free, but also done in a short time. This site is operated by Diopside LTD, who are based in Nicosia, Cyprus.
This website is a moderated chat
FlirtAndScore.com appears to be a great choice. According to the information on the platform, it is one of the best online dating sites in Australia. But we did some research on the internet and found many negative reviews. Former users were not happy and had bad experiences with the site. Some reports claim that this website is a cheeky rip-off with a fake chat. It really is a fake chat, but that is mentioned on the landing page already. On the homepage, we read about computer-generated virtual profiles which are used for “entertainment”.
The user has the chance to spot this note before registration. However, this website is moderated, and it is not possible to find a real match. That is the conclusion of the reviews on the internet. The operator claims that you can hook up with other members of the site. So, it seems that the operator uses misleading information deliberately. That makes it worse, of course. The actual purpose of moderation is to stimulate new users to make a purchase. That is the real purpose of the computer-generated virtual profiles, and not your entertainment.
Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 19/07/2021)
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.
The subscription is a trap
Costs will occur after the registration. On the landing page, we only read about free registration and nothing about costs. However, a user will need a paid membership to read and send messages. Of course, this paid membership is not worth your money. The members´ pool is full of fictional profiles that are controlled by bots. Also, we found some hints that the membership is a subscription rip-off.
We did some research on the internet. We found many negative reviews about this site. In general, people warn about this website and the operator. The operator of the site is well-known for this kind of scam. The company, Diopside Ltd, runs many more sites which use the same tricks. The profiles are fake and bots stimulate users to make a purchase. Premium membership is needed to use the chat function. This is a scam with a subscription trap.
