The online dating website XXXDates24.com appears to be a real and a good dating portal. On the homepage, we can see a selection of female and male member’s profiles. The website claims to have good matches for people who are looking for a chat with a woman or a man.
In order to test this website, we decide to create an account as a new member. We immediately receive a message from a member. But, if we want to open it, a paid package is needed. The website requires money for buying coins to chat with other members. For example, 33 coins (including 3 free coins) cost $10. The more coins you buy, the lower the cost per message.
Fake profiles used for entertainment
The terms and conditions of this online dating website mention that the website is created only for ’’entertainment’’. Often, entertainment means moderation and using fictional profiles. Moreover, the website states that the goal for members is to chat online and not to seek any personal meeting. This seems very weird.
The profiles on the home page and in the members´area are fake. These fake profiles are managed by operators. The aim is to encourage the clients into a conversation, and of course to buy increasingly more coins. That is exactly where the scam starts. The user must pay for sending messages. Payments appear just after the free registration.
