Chat-Avenue.com sent me an e-mail to become a Member there for $30.00 USD. I sent them the $30.00 USD and I received NO Membership, they then decided ban me from the site, this has happened to many other people aswell.

They refuse to give you a refund, they have about 20 Pop-Ups on their site.

If you try and contact the owner of the site Daniel he will just ignore you and maybe send you an e-mail saying it will be done in about ONE week.

Not only does he do this he offers advertising on his front page for $500.00 USD per month. My friend paid him the money and his Advertisement was only put on the front page for ONLY 7 days, the other 23 or so days was a BROKEN link which he DID on purpose.

Stay away from this site, it is a rip off, they have NEVER ending Advertisements and Pop-Ups, there is NO support and the rooms are filled with spammers, flooders, you name it!

#1 Consumer Comment

Yes, I do think it is a rip off.

AUTHOR: JasonRH - (United States of America)

   I'm not sure if that persons complaint is valid, but I can stand firm on his statment that Chat-Avenue's chat master will not respond to e-mails. Also, they do offer some kind of serivce, or use to offer a service thats url was spam'd by a chat-avenue chat bot and probally still is. I don't know why people are defending such a horrible place unless the posts were made by the chat avenue owner.

If you don't think it's a bad place then go into the video chat, on chat-avenue, and pose as a little girl and see how many 30-40 year old men are trying to send you pictures and cam requests for cyber sex.

 I feel that a site that has chat rooms for 13 and up, yet allows men of age 30 to infinity to show children their private parts, then yes it should be removed.

#1 CHAT AVENUE suck the big one!! Don't use this site, it sucks.

AUTHOR: Mark C. ***me*** - (U.S.A.)

I just wanted to say WHAT A RIPOFF PIECE OF TRASH SITE #1 Chat Avenue is.

They are so Censored, they practice Nepotism, and they think their s**t doesn't stink.

Stay away from this website, they attack and then ban you for no good reason.

They are a bunch of simple minded assholes, mostly teenagers that when not on line are torturing small animals and insects.

Thank You.

#3 UPDATE EX-employee responds

CHAT AVENUE ~ IS BY FAR THE BEST SITE OF ITS KIND ON THE NET!

I have been a member for four years, I have used the site for almost five years, I have been a Premium member for at least two years maybe a little more. I have been a Moderator for Gay Chat, and have been the Admin for the same room twice. I have also Moderated several FORUMS on and off, has been a real privilege to have done so, and I add It has simply been a GREAT PRIVILEGE to have been associated with the CHAT AVENUE Site.

I have made several contributions to CHAT AVENUE, I have never been asked to do so, I have done so to support a great site, especially the CHAT AVENUE FORUMS, the best message boards on the site. The modest contributions I have made, have been made so others may learn as much as I have about IT.

On CHAT AVENUE, everyone becomes a member when they sign up. You can become a PREMIUM member for a small donation, for this you get a few extras on your profile options, that is all. The Premium membership, is to increase income to help keep the site independent and free.
NO ONE is obliged to make any contribution of any type at all. CHAT AVENUE, does not send out begging e mails.

NO MEMBER IS OBLIGATED TO MAKE A CONTRIBUTION

The freedom of expression offered by CHAT AVENUE, also the open sharing of IT skills, and Graphic skills makes this site compulsive for all.

As regards advertising, I know nothing about that, I suspect that some advertisers mis represent themselves, as some members do, for those I say, get found out and you lose, and that's fair In any business transaction I would assume.

On a closing note, I am astonished that you can publish such crap, just on the say so of an obvious loser.

Shame, Shame on you.

LMFAO!!! I notice that this site also has a donate point what a bunch of NOBs LOL

FACT IS:
Visit this GREAT SITE, and decide for yourself:

False Claim. The Advertisement comment is a blatant lie..

AUTHOR: Craig - (Australia)

I have been at Chat-Avenue for a matter of years and never have they ever had any form of a membership system. There are links for PayPal donations and nothing more, they ask no one to donate, nor do they force anyone to donate.

The Advertisement comment is a blatant lie.. There has been Advertising at Chat-Avenue for a long time and there is no reason for them to rip anyone off.. It costs them nothing to have an add there, they would have been given money for a service, so to say they would do anything to jepordise their advertising is just absolute stupidity.

The support in both the Chat-Avenue chatrooms and Forums is great.. The moderators in the room are very approachable, and i would like to see any serious complaint or question that was not answered almost immediately.. This complaint from the made up identity, Eric Tucker, is just another ploy to give Chat-Avenue a bad name which they most certainly do NOT deserve.

A Repeat of Another Report

AUTHOR: Erin - (Australia)

Once again I find myself answering a false report on #1 Chat Avenue. The person responsible for the report does not exist, the name is being used by a "team" of people, some teens, in an attempt to infiltrate and bring the site down. No user is ever asked for money at the site, it is free to users of all ages and countries. Before judging the site from these reports, I would ask that you visit the site, use the chat rooms, join the forums and if need be contact any of the moderators or administrators. We are only too pleased to answer any questions, concerns or complaints you have concerning the site.
