Each business pays a service provider a fee for being able to use this service but then they make a high profit for each call.
If you dial a 1900 sex chat line such as telefetish.com, you pay anything up to .00 per minute or a flat fee of + to have a live conversation with a lady about whatever tickles your fancy.
There are also numerous dating chat lines where the conversations can range from the very mild to the extremely explicit.
A few months later and after keeping an eye on the project online, I decided to take the risk and join. It really is confidential and no one knows who you are.
Why do people use 1900 numbers for their businesses?
The US, Canada and Australia use numbers with a 1900 prefix for many reasons including: online dating and chat lines, weather reports, gambling, information services, counseling, jokes, horoscopes, psychic readings, adult sex chats, competitions, health issues, gaming, technical support and much more.
We’re only going to look at three of these reasons: psychic hotlines, competitions/games and adult sex/dating/phone chats.
We can see how they work and what money is made from them.
These phone numbers are set up so people can have access to certain information whenever they want it.
If they read the fine print, they won’t get caught unawares when their phone bill comes in the mail.
Businesses use these numbers so they can make money from each person who uses the service.
