The dating portal HotLocalFlirts.com makes an excellent first impression. Its landing page has a modern design, and the offer sounds excellent so far. The registration is for free, and it seems that this portal has a lot of active members. Plus, it appears that this portal does not just have a lot of members but also very open-minded members. On the landing page are some profile pictures that show erotic content.
But it turns out that this is all a fake. The information on the landing page and the general offer of HotLocalFlirts.com are all wrong, or at least irritation. Irritating information is free registration, for example. It is really for free to register here, the use of the website will not be for free. To get in touch with others, the user needs to buy credits first.
Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 28/08/2023)
5.2 HotLocalFlirts.com has entertainment as its goal, it is explicitly not the purpose of HotLocalFlirts.com to establish dates or meetings in person.
5.3 Gate Switch Development B.V. explicitly reserves the right to send messages on HotLocalFlirts.com through self-created profiles. These are fictitious profiles with which no physical agreements are possible.
A paid online dating portal is not a scam, but in this case, it is one. HotLocalFlirts.com is a fake chat. That means that the member’s pool is full of fake profiles only. In regard to some reviews on the internet, it is not possible to find one profile here that belongs to a real person.
Fake operators operate fake profiles. Their job is to entice the user to a chat and generate as many messages as possible. The fake operators do not identify themselves as a fictitious person and are not known to be fake. It is how the user gets tricked. The website is a rip-off by the Gate Switch Development BV. The operator is in Deventer in the Netherlands. Already the location is a hint that this website might not be reputable. An operator for an Australian dating website should not be on the other side of the globe.
