BlackSingles.dating advertises with free registration, a big member base, and promising communication features. According to the landing page, it is a great place to find local black singles looking for flirts, dates and relationships. As always, we search the internet for user reviews and carefully read the terms and conditions. Unfortunately, we quickly find out that the site is a rip-off and that the members cannot be trusted.
In the terms and conditions, we read that the member's area contains so-called test profiles. These profiles are created by employed fake chat operators. They are supposedly used to check the functionality of the site and to improve the user experience. But in reality, they are solely used to trick new users into becoming paying subscribers.
Shortly after the free registration, new users find several message notifications in their virtual mailboxes. As the messages appear to be sent by real people, with whom a date can be arranged, users are eager to reply quickly. But to be able to do so, they must become paying premium members first. Of course, these messages are fake. They are sent by chatbots or hired fake chat operators, who hide behind fictional profiles.
In the terms and conditions, we find the following note
From time to time, the Company employees (or employees of its parent or affiliated companies) may create test dating profiles for the purpose of checking and testing the functionality of our Website and Service to improve the quality and user experience for its Users.
Possible subscription rip-off
All premium subscriptions are not only expensive, but can also lead users into a subscription trap. They renew automatically if not cancelled in time. The automatic renewal does not necessarily have to be a bad thing. However, due to the fake chat scam and the bad reputation of the operator, the website is untrustworthy. Therefore, we advise everyone to refrain from signing up for any paid membership subscription. Moreover, due to the fake chat, the chances of finding a real date are extremely low anyway.
The operator behind this scam has many negative user reviews online, as it operates several other fake chat dating websites. Cintilet Limited, is based in Douglas, in the Isle of Man.
