DatingViking.com is an online dating website for people looking for a hook-up with no strings attached. The platform is managed by British operator Force Vision Ltd, based in Ashford. We soon discovered that this platform hides a fake chat scam, and the Terms & Conditions are rather unclear in regard to the cancellation process.
After logging in for the first time, we realized that the interface was identical to other various rip-off dating sites all over the Internet. The only difference is the domain name and the operator. As we suspected, we immediately received a lot of attention from fictional characters on the platform. This is clearly a fake chat scam, since our profile was specifically created to go unnoticed. For example, we only wrote random letters on our bio, and we didn’t upload any pictures.
When we read the Terms & Conditions, our suspicions were definitely confirmed. The operator admitted to creating fictitious profiles, designed to facilitate a virtual entertainment experience. They have the nerve to claim that this will help users practice when they actually chat with a real human being. However, we doubt there are any authentic members here at all. Based on the countless reviews we have written about this topic; we believe this platform was designed to scam its users.
The following text was excerpted from the Terms & Conditions
16.1. Please, note that while using Our Services You may sometimes interact with automated online accounts and/or fictitious profiles, which its interactions have been generated by or with the assistance of automated programs or scripts, or by real persons that have been contracted or employed by Us (hereinafter, referred to as “Bots”, “Automated Profiles” or “Fictitious profiles”). These Automated Profiles are being used within the Services for enhancing Your amusement experience and providing You with entertaining services, which helps You to better intercommunicate with another user who is a real human being.
These are our recommendations for an alternative site.
