BiCupid.com looks like a reputable online dating portal. On the landing page, we read some general information about the website and its offer. Here, people with a bi-sexual orientation meet. But this portal is open for everyone. If you are straight or gay, you can find a match here. People on this platform are open-minded and welcoming. So, all is possible here. If you are looking for a serious commitment, a casual date or just a new friendship, this might be your chance. The registration on the website is free. Plus, the process of registration is simple and involves only a few steps. Then, you are an active member and can enjoy all the advantages of the site.
That portal promises too much
The online dating portal BiCupid.com advertises with free registration. Also, we read some general information on the landing page which sounds quite good. All in all, this platform claims to be a great choice for bisexuals. But, other sexual preferences are welcomed here as well. But, the reputation of the site on the internet is not the best. Former customers speak not in the best way about this dating choice.
Because of the bad reputation, we did our own research. We checked the terms and conditions. We did not find a note about a fake chat scam. However, former customers claim that this portal is moderated. According to the details, fake profiles are controlled by employed operators who stimulate new users into a chat. For that chat, costs will occur. As said, proof is missing from the legal information. But at least we know that the operator advertises with misleading information.
The automatic renewal of the subscription
Former customers explain their experiences with the website. Right after the registration is done, you will receive many messages from other profiles. Those profiles seem to be fake and controlled. The many messages stimulate users to pay for a subscription. If you want to reply to the many messages from other users, you must purchase a premium-membership first. So, that sounds like a cheeky trap and a subscription scam, as we see it. Also, we read in the terms and conditions, that the subscription will extend automatically, if it is not terminated in time. In general, an automatic renewal is nothing bad. But in this case, the website and the operator do not appear trustworthy.
We did some research about the operator as well. We found many negative reviews about the operator. This company seems to run a big network of dating platforms which are mostly known for a rip-off. Former customers shared the experience of a scam with a fake chat and a subscription trap. In general, most of the reviews were negative and express a clear warning.
