At first sight, the online dating platform SeniorMatch.com appears to be a reputable and trustworthy website. According to the landing page, the site is the perfect place to find singles over 50, who are looking for companionship, travel partners, dates, or relationships. Furthermore, the website promises to have a big members' area of over one million senior singles and advertises with more than 35,000 success stories.
However, we read the terms and conditions of the website and do some research on the internet. Our positive impression soon turns into mistrust. Firstly, the website is not free. To use the chat and other interesting features, a paid premium-membership is needed. Without such a membership, the website is rather useless. All membership subscriptions extend automatically if they are not terminated in time. That does not have to be a bad thing in general, but unfortunately, the operator of SeniorMatch.com cannot be trusted.
Subscription traps and fake chats
On the internet, we find many reports by former customers, who had bad experiences with this operator and its websites. According to those reports, the subscriptions are extremely difficult to cancel and users regularly find themselves stuck in expensive subscription traps. Moreover, some reports suggest that many members in the chat are fake.
In the terms and conditions, the operator does not mention a moderated chat. But many former customers do not believe that the member profiles are real, and that they are managed by fake operators. We do not have any proof of a fake chat. However, the operator of SeniorMatch.com, SuccessfulMatch from Ontario, Canada, has got a terrible reputation. They are known for several scam dating websites. Therefore, we do not recommend anyone to register here. It appears to be a rip-off.
