Supposedly, these profiles are created to check the functionality of the services and to improve the user experience.
The truth is that these fake profiles are used to get in touch with new users immediately after the free registration. The purpose is to lure them into a chat conversation. Since the fake profiles are not marked as such and cannot be distinguished from real member profiles, users are more than happy to have a chat. After all, they are here to meet new people and possibly arrange a date.
However, to be able to use the chat feature and reply to incoming messages, users must become paying subscribers first. Consequently, the true purpose of the “test dating profiles” is to trick new users into quickly signing up for a paid subscription.
All subscriptions will renew automatically if they are not terminated in time. This is common practice and not necessarily a bad thing. But from our experience with online dating scams, the automatic renewal policy can easily lead users into long and costly subscription traps.
SeniorBi.com belongs to a big network of dating portals run by VodFun Ltd, from Douglas, in the Isle of man. This operator has already received many negative user reviews for many of their websites on the internet. So, it cannot be considered a trustworthy company.
