Registering on UnicornsNear.me is free of charge but the use of the platform has a cost. To use functions like chatting, users must pay a membership subscription. There is nothing bad in paying for the use of an online dating platform. But paying for using a site with a fake chat scam is just a waste of money.
We already have experience writing reviews about platforms from Desdemona Ltd, as this operator manages several dating websites. It seems they always use the same kind of scam. They use fake chat operators. In addition, the subscriptions on these platforms renew automatically, which can be a potential subscription rip-off.
Test profiles to improve quality and revenue
The operator mentions in the terms and conditions the use of “test dating profiles”. They say that these profiles are only used to check the functionality of the platform and to improve the users’ experience. Unfortunately, this is not completely true. Although these profiles may be used to check the quality of the site, their main function is to attract customers to engage in fake chats. This is how they make customers interested in paying for an expensive membership.
The following excerpt is from the terms and conditions
From time to time, the Company employees (or employees of its parent or affiliated companies) may create test dating profiles for the purpose of checking and testing the functionality of our Website and Service to improve the quality and user experience for its Users.
A potential subscription rip-off
The problem is not only wasting our time, or chatting with fake operators, or paying for an expensive but useless membership. The real problem is that these paid memberships are a big risk for the users. They renew automatically. This is not always bad and is quite common on many reliable dating platforms. In this case, we suspect that these automatic renewals can hide a subscription trap. This website is managed by an operator already well known for all kind of scams.
