SextSpot.com makes a good first impression. On the landing page, we see erotic content. Plus, the registration is free. We spotted an important note on the landing page. The operator of the site admits to using fictitious profiles. So, this platform uses fictitious profiles to entertain users. Now, it is good that this notification is shown on the landing page. It is the only positive aspect to mention in this review. But that note is by far not enough. First, it does not explain that all profiles on the site are fake. Second, moderation is not called by its name.
Entertainment is a common synonym for moderation. Of course, it is a problem that only a synonym is used to describe the purpose of the fictitious profiles. Additionally, the fictitious profiles are actually not created for the amusement of users. Fake chat operators control the fake profiles. They will animate new members into a chat. Costs will develop after the registration. A user must buy “credits” which are needed to send messages. On the one hand, it is a waste of money. On the other hand, the goal of moderation is to increase the income of the operator.
Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 02/09/2023)
4.1.3 You acknowledge that the profiles on the Website are fictitious and they have been created only to exchange messages with users and therefore real-life meetings with these fictitious profiles are therefore not possible.
The bad reputation of the operator
The operator of the portal is CH-Tel communication AG, who are based in Baar, Switzerland. We know this company very well. This is not the only dating portal run by this operator, but one of many. All their sites are a rip-off with a fake chat. Obviously, the operator has a terrible reputation. As we had some experience with the operator, we can explain their cheeky scam. A fake chat operator will actively start a chat. But, they will not mention anything about moderation. Fake profiles are not marked as such. Users will wrongly assume that the profiles are real.
