Online Connections Inc / FBM Online Connections Ltd is a company running several dating websites. One of the many sites is SingleSeniorDate.com. This is a platform dedicated to seniors, who still feel that life should be enjoyed, and are still keen to meet like-minded people. However, our opinion is that this site is not the right option for them, unless they do not mind losing their money and their time.
In fact, like most sites from this operator, this platform is a fake chat scam and a subscription rip-off. Although it may sound strange, that a site uses two different kinds of scams, in fact, this is something that happens on many fraudulent platforms. The reason is, that both rip-offs work together, as we will see in this review.
Fictitious profiles to attract the new users
The first thing we notice about this kind of fraudulent website, is that right after registering, users receive a lot of messages. Both the messages, and the profiles sending them, look suspicious. Visitors receive highly sensual messages from female users, even before they have completed their profile. That does not happen on a real and legit dating site. The reason for these fake profiles is that the operator tries to entice the users to subscribe to the website. This is what we call a fake chat scam.
The subscription trap
Once the customers have been attracted by these fake profiles, they must pay for a membership, if they decide to continue chatting. Because on this platform, nothing is free. Those who pay for a membership should be aware that all subscriptions will renew automatically. Therefore, they must cancel their subscriptions in time if they want to stop paying.
However, according to our experience, and reviews from previous users, terminating the subscriptions is extremely difficult. The operator uses different tricks, and makes the process complicated, to make the cancellation difficult. This is a subscription rip-off. This is also a common scam on many sites run by this company.
