YoLovers.com appears to be a great place to find local singles, who are interested in flirts and dates. Since the landing page does not provide much information, we decide to create an account and do some research on the internet.
Fake message scam
Shortly after the free registration, we receive several flirty messages, seemingly sent by other members. However, we suspect that these messages are created and sent by an automated system, which are so-called “chatbots”. To answer to incoming messages, a paid membership subscription is needed. We have experience with online dating scams. So, we know that fake messages are often used to lure new users into becoming paying subscribers as quickly as possible. In the terms and conditions, we find the confirmation for our assumption. The site admits to using so-called “promoted messages”, which is merely another term for fake messages.
The following note is from the terms and conditions
We may from time to time offer users the ability to “Promote My Account” through Account Settings. Activating this service will mean that we will automatically broadcast custom messages created by any user, or selected from a default list of template messages, to other users. We reserve the right to select members to use the Promote My Account service. Sending of messages through this service will be free, however, recipients who view and choose to reply to a Promote My Account message, will require to have an upgraded Paid Membership in order to reply to the sender.
