Ratings and Reviews
The app isn’t smooth yet but it works well enough and InterPals is great!
InterPals is an amazing website to meet new people around the world! I’ve been using the website for years now. I’ve made quite a few genuine friends around the world.
It’s great to finally see an app and I’m sure they will continue to improve it over time. I appreciate that it exists at all honestly!
Scammers and numerous fake profiles
The site is rampant with scammers and fake profiles. I guess that’s what happens when a chat site doesn’t charge for its services, and it performs no identity checks or verifications when a person joins.
I read a review in here by literalkev who said his account was flagged for suspicious activity two weeks ago. That’s exactly what happened to me, and at about the same time. I asked them for clarification, like what the suspicious activity was, but they didn’t reply. Actually, they never reply to specific requests or questions. They even have the nerve to caution someone against reporting too many scammers and fake profiles. Can you believe it? They provide a flagging tool, but they actually tell people not to report other profiles so much.
I’ve had a few good conversations with legitimate people, but I would wager that about half of the profiles are either of fake people or scammers. There’s a public wall where anyone can post a comment, but it feels creepy and cringy.
But again, it’s free, so what do you expect?
Spend years making friends and then lose the ability to talk to them in one day for no reason.
I've had my InterPals account for two years and have absolutely loved it, but about two weeks ago, my account was flagged for suspicious activity and suspended. I've tried to reach out to the admin team multiple times to find out why this happened and what I needed to do to correct the issue, but have received no response from anyone on their team.
It's really heartbreaking because I have a lot of friends on the app that I can no longer communicate with due to this issue. I've never violated their terms of service or sent spam or anything like that, but here we are. My suspension message said the automated system or the admin team suspended my account and there was no reasoning made available to me after that.
I spent a lot of time building my profile and making friends there and now all of that is gone. I would probably rate this app at least 4 stars were it not for this awful development.
