CuriousBis.com claims to be a secure dating site for bisexual people. We cannot deny that everything on the landing page looks-well designed. We are assured that this place is safe and makes real bisexual encounters possible. However, we have enough reason to believe otherwise. Many of the other profiles appear to be fake. They are used as a tool by the operator to make a profit.
Shortly after finishing the registration, we already discover a message in our inbox. We are informed about all the messages we receive, but we cannot read or answer them. Apparently, these messages are fake. They originate from fake profiles that are either managed by fake chat operators or they are template messages to initiate conversations. We created more than one account on CuriousBis.com but always received a message. The fact that we created the most boring profiles possible did not stop that from happening.
Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 01/07/2021)
By using this Website you acknowledge that any User profiles, messages and communication may not be genuine.
The expensive VIP membership
While you should always be careful about other profiles on dating sites in general, this statement already seems to indicate the use of fictitious profiles. A VIP membership is necessary to reply to the messages sent by these profiles. This is how a fake chat scam typically works. By faking attention, the users are enticed to pay for premium services.
The operator offers a VIP membership which renews automatically. However, we do not consider this dating site to be a subscription rip-off. Subscriptions are common on dating sites. This one can be cancelled at any time prior to the beginning of the next term.
Who is behind this rip-off?
This is our first experience with Ambiance LTD, the company from Cospicua in Malta, who runs this site. CuriousBis.com is part of a network that consists of several scam dating sites which all belong to the same operator. All of them look very much alike. It is difficult to find any user reviews for the site online. We also do not really trust the exotic location of the company.
