Added today: fake comments on BH's YT, more lawsuits connected to Teladoc, weird shit with therewiredsoul, another link for Kati, and BH+connected sites removing part of their TOS as of 10/4, speculation on personality disorders being pushed and data mining. And if you read this when I first posted it yesterday, there was already a bunch of stuff added last night as well.
Harmful-niisan also did a vid on this and after reading all this crap I do not feel guilty at all for dropping borderline illegal KYS bombs last night. It's a scam by scum. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0e-z1nNqB5s
Thanks for the link, vas. Going to check it out.
I hadn't thought about the angle that they're technically supplementary help, according to their TOS, not that I'd trust them at this point. But he's right, they're actually suggesting you pay for a therapist (that they scare you into thinking you can't afford and are probably evil) and their service on top of it, which you then agree you won't use any techniques their therapists give you. What a POS company.
Found one last site/app of theirs. So the total list is: BetterHelp, Pride Counseling, Faithful Counseling, ReGain, Teen Counseling, Terappeuta, and MyTherapist.
This reminds me of the prime of a collection of dating sites catering to the "middle-aged men searching for Asian/Eastern European brides" market with every desired nationality having its own domain (They are probably still around. I won't check for sanity reasons), but all of the sites belonged to the same company.
And now exactly that formula has been adopted by a service posing as healthcare and trying to convince vulnerable people that being a customer instead of a patient is somehow fucking with the system. They at least share the notion that emotional well-being is a purchaseable product.
You're the hero this website deserves.
This isn't something I would normally post, but I was too pissed off not to. I will update this when I have time. If anyone else knows of anything else weird going on with this company, email me or leave me info on my profile.
Okay, so to sum up, this is a scam preying on the mentally ill, selling them services their own ToS state they cannot provide, and also all the information shared through their service, which a really therapist is LEGALLY SWORN TO SECRECY are then sold to shady ads networks. YIKES. Unironic firing squads for these subhumans NOW. #killallbetterhelpers #selfdefenceisntmurder
That’s precisely it, and there’s more. I’ll be updating this more later.
God, thank you for that. I saw these ads and wtf-ed through their entire runtime. And I love the founder's criticism about "socialized healthcare", great choice of word btw. Is he aware that being able to go to a therapist for zero dollars might be considered the superior experience compared to paying to talk to some dud on the web while being recorded?
I just found their Spanish version. Going to look into that more. Already found some amusing errors.
i heard about them today and i'm glad people are debunking this bullshit. i remember other scams like this, but these weren't as bad as this shit is. i lost my faith in humanity again
fixed some typos
