50sLove.com.au might appear like a solid online dating portal. The offer of the website sounds quite promising. On the landing page, we read about many active members. This platform advertises with high chances of finding a match. However, this site notes that you can connect with other members. Actual dates are not mentioned. From our experience, that makes this site suspicious. We have had some negative experiences with such dating sites already. If a portal claims that you can connect, but not meet your match, it means nothing good. Usually, such sites turn out to be a rip off.
We started our research on the internet. This site does not have a good reputation. In general, most former users did not have a good experience. Former users explain that the profiles of the site are fake. Also, former users mention moderation. It seems that fake chat operators control the fake profiles. After our research on the internet, we checked the legal information of the site. It did not take long before we found proof of a fake chat scam. This platform uses fake profiles that show fictional people. Moderation is used to “entertain” the users of this portal.
Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 02/09/2023)
The user/member is also aware that 50SLOVE uses so-called animators to motivate users/members to communicate interactively. These are real people. However, the user / member is aware that he cannot meet the animators in real life. Both users and members can contact the animators at any time either write to them proactively or get contacted by them to communicate with them through the website.
Do not join this platform
Reviews by former users explain how it works. It starts right after the registration. Fake chat operators will contact new members. They will encourage them into a conversation. The registration is free, but later costs will be incurred for the use of the site. Members will pay to send messages which will only reach a fake chat operator. According to reviews on the internet, users do not know about moderation. This is the reason why this site is a rip off. The operator of the platform is Alpha Internet Services GmbH. They are based in Innsbruck, in Austria.
