OpenRelationshipFinder.com is an online dating platform for those who are looking for open relationships, polyamory, and swinging experiences. At first sight, the portal looks like a decent choice and the overall appearance is trustworthy. To find out if the site can be recommended or not, we read the terms and conditions and search for user reviews online. Unfortunately, we quickly find out that this portal is a rip-off.
The registration is free, quick, and easy. But to unlock the chat feature to communicate with other members, a paid membership subscription is needed. These subscriptions renew automatically and can easily end in a long and costly subscription trap. The site’s operator is not trustworthy, and the cancellation process may very well be a troublesome experience.
Chatting here is not only expensive, but also entirely pointless. In the terms and conditions, we read that the members’ area contains fake profiles. These are created and managed by employed fake chat operators. Apparently, these so-called “test dating profiles” are only used to check the site’s functionality to improve the user experience. But in fact, they are used to send enticing fake messages to new users. The purpose is to trick them into becoming paying subscribers as quickly as possible.
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.
Dates are unlikely
Since the member profiles are obviously fake and cannot be trusted, chatting here seems like a waste of time. After all, it is not possible to meet a fictional person in real life. Unfortunately, users are not sufficiently informed about the fake profiles and can easily fall for this scam.
The operator responsible for this rip-off is Blue Mouse Ltd, from Castletown, in the Isle of Man. This company seems to be new and unknown. However, it still cannot be considered trustworthy. The Isle of Man happens to be a very suspicious location. Many other online dating scam operators are based there as well.
