SeniorsToDate.com appears to be a great choice. On the homepage, we see an image of an older woman. So, this is an online dating website for silver agers. The advertisement aims at this target group. We also read some general information about the website and its offer. It seems to be a popular choice here in the UK. It states that you can find people from your area easily. To find a match for yourself, registration must be completed first. Luckily, registration is simple and done in a few minutes. Also, the registration is free for everyone.
This website is a bad choice
The offer of the online dating portal SeniorsToDate.com sounds great. Free registration and high chances of a date. But the information on the landing page is not true. The operator of the site uses misleading and irritating advertising. So, the registration is free, but not the use of the website. A premium membership is needed to read and send messages. Also, we found some reviews on the internet which explain that received messages will delete within 24 hours, if the user does not make a purchase. That sounds like a cheeky trick.
A new member will get a free basic membership, after the registration is done. But this kind of membership does not allow any action. So, with simple tricks, a new member will be persuaded to pay for a subscription. We also read some reports on the internet that might be a hint for a fake chat. Former users mention that they received many messages in a short time. But it is not possible to read those. Also, they will delete it soon. So, the more time a user spends on this site, a premium membership becomes more interesting.
The subscription is a trap
The only thing that prevents users from making a purchase are the high costs for a premium membership. But the operator of the site has one more trick. A cheap trial membership will be offered which runs for three days. It sounds like a fair deal, at first. But in the terms and conditions, we read that the deadline for termination is 72 hours and that a subscription will extend automatically if it is not terminated in time. So, the trial membership is the actual subscription rip-off.
We have must point out that proof for a fake chat is missing. The operator does not mention fictional profiles or fake chat operators in the terms and conditions. However, we did some research online. We found many reviews about a fake chat scam. Former users claim that they received many messages right after the registration. Most of them had the very same experience. This makes the reviews more reliable than the terms and conditions of a scam company. In any case, the reputation of the website is bad. The reputation of the operator Cyberence Kft, is even worse.
