At first sight, the dating platform MyFantasyChat.com seems to be a great place to find like-minded people for chats, flirts and dates in no time. The landing page is filled with member profiles and the overall design looks professional and promising. As always, we search the internet for user reviews and have a closer look at the terms and conditions. It does not take long before we find out that the website is a rip-off with a fake chat.
MyFantasyChat.com advertises with free registration and does not mention any costs on the landing page. But in fact, the website turns out to be rather pricey. To use the chat feature, users must pay. First, so-called “credits” must be purchased, which can then be exchanged for sending messages in the chat. Depending on which of the offered “credit” bundles a user chooses to purchase, the price per message will be between $1.95 and $2.60. This is not only incredibly expensive, but also entirely pointless, as no chat conversation can ever result in a real-life date.
In the terms and conditions, we find the following note
myfantasychat.com has the goal of allowing users to flirt. myfantasychat.com is the platform for users to chat with fictive profiles. The website, service and content are being provided for entertainment purposes only and are not intended to be used for establishing meetings with other users. Profiles marked with a heart icon are fictive profiles with which physical contact is not possible.
Unfortunately, users are not sufficiently informed about the fake profiles and therefore assume that there is a real person behind each member profile. All relevant information is only placed in the fine print and well-hidden in the terms and conditions. The heart-icon, which is used to mark the fictitious profiles, has to be considered totally insufficient as well.
After all, it is not self-explanatory and can easily be overlooked or mistaken as part of the overall design. Consequently, users are being tricked into spending a lot of money on senseless chat conversations. They are unaware that real dates are off the table from the very beginning.
No reviews on the internet
The operator behind this scam is Gate Switch Development BV, which is based in the Dutch town of Deventer. Unfortunately, we cannot find much information about this company, and we do not have any previous experience with it. Also, we cannot find any user reviews for MyFantasyChat.com, either. Nonetheless, we do not recommend anyone to register on this platform. As we see it, it is a classic fake chat rip-off.
