Typically, when a dating website does not provide clear information about the platform's operator it is likely suspect. This was the case with YourHappyLovers.com. It was difficult to find the name of the company as the details are provided as .jpg, instead of text. Also, to find out where the company was based, we had to research on the internet.
The platform is run by Digital International Inc, a platform we have had previous negative experiences with. The operator specializes in using artificial intelligence to create fake profiles. These profiles will interact with the new users to entice them to pay for the use of the platform.
A fake chat scam
We consider the use of these fictitious profiles as a fake chat scam. Most users are not aware of this, as the operator does not provide clear information on their site. It was obvious that the page was filled with fake profiles. Right after registering, we received an unusually high number of messages, something that usually does not happen on a legitimate page, meaning users are already on their way to becoming victims of a fake chat scam.
Aside from our own experience, we also found several negative reviews about the operator online. These reviews from former users always complain about the same things. Fake profiles to stimulate conversations and convince customers to upgrade to a paid subscription, and operators registering these fake profiles as regular users.
The following excerpt is from the terms and conditions
For the purposes of provision of our Websites to you via the Website during the hours of low attendance, we may register ai profiles as Users so that you may continue using Website and chatting with other Users uninterruptedly when the number of active Users is decreasing.
