The online dating website BlueMotel.com.au advertises with many profiles on the landing page. All of the pictures show naked people and further erotic content. First, we ask ourselves if this site has got any personal data protection, because the erotic profile pictures of users are shown on the landing page for every visitor to see.
Because of that, we did some research on the internet and we checked the terms and conditions. The terms and conditions are quite hidden. We had to start the registration process first, to be able to see the link to it. There we found the name of the operator. This site is operated by the Venntro Media Group Ltd. based in Slough, UK. That company receives a lot of criticism because of leaking data protection and a scam. Former customers mention a fake chat and a subscription trap.
This site is a bad choice
The operator of BlueMotel.com.au runs a network which includes more than 3,500 different dating sites in several different categories. This here is a casual dating site. Other portals are a matchmaker for example. The operator always claims that the site has got a huge members’ pool. However, that is only because of the leaking data protection.
If you register here, your profile will be shown on all other sites of the network. The same applies for registrations by other people on other dating portals. So, the chance that you will find a person that is really looking for a casual date here on this site, is extremely small or not even real.
Former customers also claim that the site is a fake chat. According to that information, the members’ pool is filled with fake profiles that are managed by fake operators.
In the terms and conditions, we found the note:
“The Site is an entertainment service.”
“Entertainment” can stand for fake chat, but in this case, real proof is missing. Moreover, former customers claim that the site is a subscription trap. Indeed, the subscription does extend automatically, if it is not cancelled in time. Usually, that does not have to be a scam. In this case we are not really sure about it. But we know that the website is certainly not a good choice.
