ChnLove.com is an online dating site owned by a company called Qpid Network, which also owns other dating sites such as, iDateAsia.com, CharmDate.com, and LatamDate.com. Is this a legitimate network of dating services or not? We begin our investigation here, with a thorough review of ChnLove.com’s workings. Continue reading to uncover the truth.
Our investigation on ChnLove.com
1) Authenticity Of Lady Profiles
Given the fact that this is a common scam that dating sites use, we thought it’s a good start of our quest in exploring ChnLove.com’s legitimacy. We did turn to the terms and conditions of use in order to get to the bottom of this, but couldn’t find any solid evidence there. However, in the FAQs List we did find an explanation that ChnLove.com does not directly connect you with women. Moreover, women have not created their own profiles, but agencies have done that for them. At this point, the whole dating experience just got too messy. Moreover, the profile pictures look like they have been taken by a professional photographer and are not as natural-looking as one would expect. Read below what ChnLove.com has to say about women’s profiles on the site.
EXCERPT FROM FAQs: “ChnLove.com provides an online communication platform and the profiles listed on the site are submitted by local agencies with whom we cooperate. The authenticity of ladies’ profiles are primarily in the control of the agencies. Ladies’ profiles go through a verification and validation process carried out by the agencies.”
2) Are These Women Hired By The Site
We don’t know. But we know for certain that they are in communication with these agencies that are also in charge for their profiles and authenticity of information. But, we are starting to really disbelief the whole ChnLove.com story. So, our next question in mind was whether these “ladies” were being paid any money as a compensation for their photographs and information. As you will read below, ChnLove.com does not directly hire or pay the women to use the site, but this doesn’t mean that agencies are not receiving money which is later paid to the “ladies”.
EXCERPT FROM FAQs: “The ladies are not hired to perform any tasks whatsoever. We do not deal directly with the ladies and do not charge them or pay them to use our website.”
3) Using The Service Is Costly
ChnLove.com operates on a credit based system, which means that you don’t really pay for an amount of time that you can use the website for; instead you need to buy credits which are taken for every action you take on the site. So, you pay a certain amount of money for a number of credits on the website, and their correspondence system works on a message-per-credits basis. Let’s have a look at ChnLove.com credit-pricing list:
Cost of credits
- $21.00 to buy 3 Credits
- $30.00 to buy 4 Credits
- $52.00 to buy 8 Credits
- $96.00 to buy 16 Credits
- $179.00 to buy 32 Credits
- $299.00 to buy 60 Credits
- $399.00 to buy 100 Credits
4) You Are Not Contacting The Ladies Directly
ChnLove.com say that your messages need to be sent to a translation agency/service before they can be sent to the “lady” to ensure that you can understand each other and communicate without any problems. But, if you think about it, this also means that your messages are never intimate. Plus, you can never be sure that any real person is getting your messages and replying genuinely. With our experience at reviewing dating sites, we definitely wouldn’t take ChnLove.com’s word for it. Another red flag is the fact that you are forbidden to share and send any personal contact or request contact information from a woman you are communicating with. Now, of this was a real dating service they would be eager to take your dating to the next step and not limit you to using only their services (for as long as you keep paying).
The verdict on ChnLove.com
ChnLove.com seems to be a tricking system aimed to get you into buying credits in order to get or send email messages or do anything else on the site. In fact, the interactions with the women called “ladies” could be automatically generated computer messages or paid employees that work to get you to buy even more credits. In many of the other reviews on ChnLove.com we read online, people said the women on the pictures were actually paid models, and they are not the ones behind the profiles. Plus, spending around $400 to purchase credits on website that has so much potential for being illegitimate is quite pricey.
