Home » A Review of DatingViking.com: Fraudulent April 2023 Check and Deceit

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.

Fictitious Profiles

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.

Cancellation Risks

The memberships on this service entail recurring payments. Considering the many red flags that we identified on this platform; we should give our readers additional warning. Very often, these rip-off operators make it difficult for users to cancel subscriptions with recurrent costs. In this case, we have no evidence to confirm this sort of foul play on this site. The Terms of Use were not very clear regarding the cancellation terms. Given our experience in reviewing scam date sites, this lack of transparency made us a little nervous, so it is better to avoid sites like this completely.

These are our recommendations for an alternative site.
