We are pretty sure that the online sex dating portal, xCheaters.com, is also another scam by the operator, Flaming Head Limited. We start our investigation at the landing page. The site claims, boastfully, to have more than 1,894,521 members around the world and 31,214 currently online, and just waiting to hook-up with you. This easy to prove, we reload the page, and still get the same numbers. This is the first misleading, false information.
The operator shamelessly admits to using computer-generated virtual profiles to entertain, as well as confuse, the members.
Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 01/09/2023)
I also agree to receive email newsletters, account updates, special offers and communications from computer generated virtual profiles, targeted to my interests, sent by PassionDesire.com or PDcupid.com, and agree to allow my personal data to be shared with third parties.
We may post fictitious profiles, generate or respond to communications by means of automated programs or scripts that simulate or attempt to simulate your intercommunication with another real human being (though none really exists and any dialogue is generated by programming), and we may employ or contract for the paid services of real persons who may interact with you as part of their compensated employment.
We do the next step and register on the portal. This is done fast and very easily without any charge. But the free membership is useless because you cannot use essential features like reading and replying to messages, texts, and emails. They are not included. Here the customer needs an expensive premium membership.
We were suspicious from the very beginning. Too many good-looking women on the starting page and in the members’ pool. Many hot chicks are attracted by us, even if we do not have any details or pictures on our profile. Unrealistic amounts of messages come within the first five minutes. All the signs of a rip-off.
Faked messages and computer-generated emails
The operator uses the same scheme to rip-off users this way on his other dating portals. He is sending tons of faked messages and computer-generated emails and texts to the newbie. The company also uses paid moderators who are hiding behind faked profiles to lure people into expensive purchases. The customer is charmed by the hot profile and will finally upgrade his account to read and reply to the hottie. Once he has paid, the sexy chick will disappear, and the messages will stop. At the end of the day, the user will not have a date but a costly, useless subscription with monthly renewal.
The operator does not need to worry about legal actions because he is admitting to use virtual computer-generated profiles on the starting page, and the user has agreed to it because he ignored the fine print. Also, in the terms and conditions, we can see the following information. Many people are more than angry about the website xCheaters.com and the company behind it, Flaming Head LTD, based in Nicosia, Cyprus. They are expressing their rage on several online forums, and some are even looking for legal help to get out of the subscription trap.
