T4M.net presents itself as a chat platform where people interested in ladyboys, crossdressers, etc., can play out their fantasies online. You can see many alleged members featured on the landing page. This platform calls itself, “a genuine online chat site”. This is a way of disguising the fact that this is not a real dating website. The platform is operated by Online Media Solutions BV, a company based in s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands. It manages a huge network of online dating rip-offs. For the purpose of this review, we created a minimalistic profile and read the terms and conditions attentively.
This time the descriptions across the website seem consistent with the purpose of the platform, which is purely an online chat service. The small print warns about “fake chat” operators and their per-message payment structure. These warnings appear during registration and after signing in. Although we agree that there should be a certain amount of user responsibility, the platform is still a scam designed to look like a dating website, a place where you can encounter people with similar kinks and eventually meet them in real life.
Warnings in fine print
Anyone tempted to spend money on a platform like this may easily overlook the fine print warnings. No matter which section you’re in, the footnote disclaimer is anchored at the bottom of the website. However, we deduced that anyone wanting to join a platform like this sees no point in purchasing credits for chatting with a fantasy character. In our opinion, users are not openly informed about a fake chat where physical interaction is impossible.
The terms and conditions also explain the use of fictitious profiles. They state that the website is meant as a form of entertainment and not to be taken seriously. The services are paid per message, some of them may be paid per minute of viewing, or in a similar structure. A hot chat can quickly become a very expensive form of entertainment, especially if you're not fully aware of the implications. The basic profile we had created had limited functionality. One of these fictional users sent us a steamy message after logging in, trying to lure us to purchase credits.
The following text is excerpted from the Terms and Conditions
We want to create with this Service a nice portal for men and women who want to enjoy a bit of fun and do not take dating too seriously, but see it more as a fun and fun form of entertainment. One of our objectives is to realize online interaction between you and others. This service uses self-created entertainment profiles, these profiles are moderated and therefore no physical agreements are possible.
No physical interaction
The terms and conditions, along with numerous warnings made it clear that meetings in real life will not be possible. Someone with a very strong desire to fulfill their fantasies may easily overlook these warnings. A fake chat-based experience would be pointless to most people. It is hard to imagine anyone who would think this is a good use of their money and time. For this reason, we considered that this website should make it clearer for users to know that any real-life meetings are impossible. All profiles are operated by fake users.
