Every mail-order bride website that we've investigated never turned out to be legitimate. Here we are investigating yet another mail order bride side this one is called LatinFeels.com. This site seems like it's is connected to a fake dating site called my Valentime.com, UkrainianCharm.com, Charmerly.com as well as other mail order dating service. The reason we say it seems like it's connected to those two sites is because they share the exact same layout design. The website layout is exactly the same, only the name of the website is different. This leads us to believe that all three sites are connected and most likely owned by the same corporation.
If you want to know the truth about LatinFeels, the good, the bad and the ugly please take the time to read our investigative report below. This report has taken us hours to compile and write. Part of our investigation includes registering as a free member on the dating service, reading through the terms and conditions page, going through dating profiles etc. Any evidence that we have gathered that concludes the website is misleading and deceptive will be included below in the investigative report. Please read it now.
Real Women Or Fake Profiles? You Be The Judge
Below we've included just a small example of some of the Latina women who are members of LatinFeels.com. You can see circled in red below all the Latina women in this small sample are very attractive. This always raises a red flag in our opinion because compared to regular dating sites like Plenty of Fish where you have a variety of different women in all shapes and sizes the women on LatinFeels only seem to be very attractive. Does this make the site a scam? No, of course not but based on our previous experience with other dating sites that we think are associated with Latin Feels we think that these profiles most likely are not legitimate women looking to find a husband halfway across the world!
As part of our review we took the time to read through the terms and conditions page and we found some interesting evidence in section 11.a of the terms page. In section 11.a the website states that they "may from time to time create profiles which are created and operated by their own employees". They call these dating profile "Staff Profiles". We've heard of the term "Staff Profiles" many times before and all the dating sites that admit to using "Staff Profiles" are admitting to using and creating fictitious profiles. Although we don't have any concrete evidence to prove that the specific profiles below are phony we have our suspicions.

LatinFeels.com Pays Female Members To Chat With Other Members
In the terms and conditions page the administrators of Latin Feels admit that they "share revenue with female users". You can take a look at the screenshot below where it says that exact phrase! That screenshot was taken directly from the terms and conditions page of the website (found at the very top of that page). You need to ask yourself one question why would any dating site actually be sharing their profits with female users of their site? If they're paying female users to use their website that means the website is not legitimate, in any way, shape or form!

The Female Users Behind Dating Profiles Are Paid To Chat With You
In the terms and conditions page they talk about something called "risks notice". This is where they admit that they're actually purchasing dating profiles that they call "Validated Members". They admit that they pay the women behind these phony profiles to use their website. Anyway you look at it, if someone is being paid to use a dating site they're going to have an agenda. If they email you, send you an instant instant message or any other form of communication then they are doing it for the money! If these female members are paid to chat with other members they have a much larger incentive to send out as many emails and instant messages as possible. This is nothing more than a job for these women. And the website openly admits that they share revenue with these female users! They call these female users "Validated Members" and in the "Risk Notice" section of the terms and conditions page they tell us that they are paid a fee that is linked to the amount spent by a male member while you are communicating and sending gifts to these women. If that's not fraud we don't know what it is. No legitimate dating site would pay certain members to communicate with other members. Obviously there's a massive conflict of interest and the women sending out the emails are most likely not even interested in the men that they're sending emails and instant messages to (obviously).
"IceBreaker Messages" (Fake Email & Instant Messages) Are Sent By "Validated Members"
Another piece of evidence we found in the terms and conditions page was found in section 7.f. In this particular piece of evidence the website admits that "Validated Members" which once again are women who are paid to chat with you send the same message to a number of other members (which is all automated). They call these automatically generated messages "Icebreakers". Think about it for a minute they're paying women to chat with you and these women are then sending out the same message automatically to a large amount of men at the exact same time! How is this even legal? This proves even more so that this website is illegitimate. Where have you ever heard of female members sending automated messages to more than one person at the same time and then if you reply to those messages they are paid? These are nothing more than paid employees perpetrating a scam on male members. The great thing is all of this is documented right in their own terms and conditions page so this case is closed shut!

We think we proved our case with this investigation. Obviously this website has not been created for your best interest. The site has been built exclusively so the website owners can make as much money as possible. While they deceive and mislead you by paying female users of the website to interact and send you emails back and forth which cost you money!
