The site advertises access to gorgeous women all over Mexico, Columbia, Costa Rica, Panama and Brazil, however most customer reviews complain that every female contact on the site is merely a paid actor, if anything at all.
Instead of signing up for a membership like most dating sites, Amolatina.com works on credits that you have to purchase to interact with any woman. The credits are expensive and are not worth much in the currency of the site. For example, it costs 10 credits to send a message to a woman and 20 credits costs $15.99.
Every customer review I encountered claimed that the site was a complete sham. In the PayPal Community Help Forum, one customer said he was scammed out of $3500, citing proof from a person who worked as a translator for Amolatina.com confirming that the site runs on a fraudulent basis. Another on ComplaintsBoard.com said that even when he mailed a letter to the woman he had been messaging, he was mailed back a letter from the site encouraging him to contact her through the paid service. This could very well be a protective measure to insure the women’s safety and keep interactions within the site. Profit is most likely the major factor here.
However, the consumer should be aware that any paid system designed to meet women in other countries is going to have some stipulations. Whether this is a full scam or not is up to the consumer to decide.
Users are free to cruise the website and see what is available, but without paying for credits you cannot interact with any other users.
Members & Messaging
In order to sent a message to another users, the customer must buy credits. To send or receive a message costs 10 credits and 20 credits costs $15.99.
- Mailing system easy to use
– The “Call Me” option (enables you to hear the voice of the woman you are speaking with, and includes an interpreter you can pay for on the site).
- Live Chat and “Cam Share” (video interaction) allow members to converse in real time.
“Date A Lady” (where the site helps you set up a meeting with the lady you have been chatting with).
“Virtual Gifts” make it easy to send digital presents.
Members can purchase and earn credits on the site to send “gifts” to potential mates.
Safety & Security
On the main login page, there is an Anti-Scam Policy warning that alerts users of the following: never send any money to a lady, arrange dates through our “Date Me” service, exchange contact information with the lady through the “Call Me” service and to “once in a while conduct video chat with your lady.” Obviously, the site wants to profit by keeping interactions strictly within the confines of their online system, but this proves that this site is not about making connections, but instead money. However, Amolatina.com says it will reimburse users if they are scammed by having a lady misidentify herself deliberately, if gifts brought through the system were not delivered, if a lady refuses to meet a customer through the “Date Me” service or if a lady requests money or expensive gifts.
Total Price Per Option
Amolatina.com doesn’t use a traditional monthly member system. Instead, customers buy credits to be able to access all the features of the site. For example, to read or send a message or view a video, a member must forfeit 10 credits.
