Chemistry.com is an online dating site that promises countless numbers of like-minded matches for you. First, you do a several minutes long compatibility test and fill in your personal information. Then, the site finds your first five matches which the site markets as completely free and you should be ready to go.
But is everything really that easy or is Chemistry.com hiding some scamming truths from its own users? We did our investigation and found some facts you’d be interested to know. Continue reading our review to learn more.
What you should know about Chemistry.com?
Chemistry.com is owned and run by the Match.com LLC Company that owns the Match.com dating site among many others. We already found strong reasons why Match.com is an illegitimate and scamming site. Here, we will review some of the scamming tools used to trick you.
1) Your Posted Data Is No Longer Yours
When you complete your sign-up process on Chemistry.com you are immediately asked to create your profile and post your personal information and preferences, so the site can find you potential matches. You, just like anyone else will post flattering photographs of yourself, drop a few lines about your personal interests, hobbies, ect. By this time, you have most probably skipped one vital step and that is to read the terms and conditions of use. Reading this document is important, so that you understand your rights and duties on Chemistry.com. One of the things you should know is that the site gains exclusive right to take and reuse any and all posted information, and distribute them across other sites in their network and affiliated sites. This means that the minute you post anything, it is no longer yours and can be freely broadcasted on multiple dating services.
2) Replicated And Fabricated Profiles
The fact that Chemistry.com can freely take and reuse your personal info makes us have three important questions in mind:
a. How can I tell a real person’s profile from a replica?
b. Who is behind my profile on other dating sites where all my data are distributed?
c. Who is running the false dating profiles on Chemistry.com?
These are two questions you should ask yourselves before you decide to trust Chemistry.com. The answer is that you cannot know whether the dating profiles you see on the home page are created using other people’s personal info or whether they are genuine. Similarly, you can never be sure where your photos and individual info will end and who will reuse them. This scam only exists to help Chemistry.com and its affiliates grow their number of members (mostly fictitious) to fill up the dating sites because there are not enough people using their services. Remember that it’s not safe to post anything on this site, nor can you know who is a real person and who is just a profile created by re-working other peoples info.
3) Computer-Animated Communications
Chemistry.com is also sending you emails created by the site’s owners using computer software that contacts you and many other site members at the same time or at different times. They do not use official email addresses, but rather contact you thorough the created member’s profiles. Although these messages are usually computer-automated, they can also be sent by site’s employees whose job is to pretend they are real site members while hiding behind someone else’s profile data.
4) Chemistry.com Is Not Free
Of course you didn’t think for a second that Chemistry.com would go through so much trouble for nothing? Owning and maintaining a website is costly and the owner knows this would probably be a turn-off for many site users. So, they need to make their site’s membership exclusive. This is the tactic used by Chemistry.com to scam many men and women and fall straight in the hands of rip offs. Here are your payment options:
- $49.95 for 1 month of membership
- $99.95 for 3 months of membership
- $159.95 for 6 months of membership
*Note that your initial subscription is not a one-time thing and Chemistry.com will keep automatically renewing your paid membership, while charging money off your credit card after the subscription time period you chose in the beginning expires. So, if you pay to use the service for 3 months, at the end of those months you will be charged again (without notifying) for the same amount of time you initially chose. This will continue happening until you realize you’ve been ripped off and cancel your membership.
The verdict on Chemistry.com
Chemistry.com is not a legitimate dating service and is definitely not interested in finding you a true match, but rather focuses on getting your money. After doing this investigation and research on Chemistry.com, we can say with certainty that this site is only aimed at your money. They will not provide you with possible dates, find you right matches, or provide real communications.
