At first sight, the online dating website MyBlackPartner.com looks like a great place to find local black singles for a date in no time at all. The portal offers free, quick registration, promising features, and thousands of black singles in the members’ pool. As always, we search the internet for user reviews and read the terms and conditions of the site thoroughly. Unfortunately, we quickly find several hints that the site cannot be trusted and should be avoided.
In the terms and conditions, we find the following note
We may from time to time offer users the ability to “Promote My Account” through Account Settings. Activating this service will mean that we will automatically broadcast custom messages created by any user, or selected from a default list of template messages, to other users. We reserve the right to select members to use the Promote My Account service. Sending of messages through this service will be free, however, recipients who view and choose to reply to a Promote My Account message, will require to have an upgraded Paid Membership in order to reply to the sender.
Fake messages created by fake chat operators
In other words, the operator of the site reserves the right to send fake messages from and to any existing user profile. These fake messages, which are created by fake chat operators or chatbots, are usually sent to new users immediately after the registration. If users want to reply, they are forced to upgrade to a paid membership subscription first.
From our experience, new users are not aware of the fact that these messages are fake. Therefore, they assume that they are sent by a real person, with whom a date can be arranged. That way, they are tricked into signing up for the paid membership subscriptions.
Subscription trap scam
All paid membership subscriptions turn out to be cheeky traps. They renew automatically if they are not terminated in time. But the operator of the MyBlackPartner.com, London based Porticato Media Ltd, is known to make it almost impossible to cancel these subscriptions. Therefore, the site must be considered a rip-off.
Many negative reviews
On the internet, we find numerous negative reviews about the operator and its websites. According to former users, the members’ area is filled with fake profiles, and no conversation can ever result in a real-life date. Consequently, we cannot recommend anyone to register on MyBlackPartner.com. Due to the fake chat and the subscription trap, it is clearly a waste of money and time.
