MillionBB Match has reportedly seen a 20 percent increase in fake profiles trying to join the app, according to a press release from the company.
Coronavirus quarantines are leading more Americans to date online — leading one exclusive app to be extra vigilant for fake profiles.
The web — which was created in 2018 — is specifically for “niche MillionBB, upscale people and affluent singles” who are interested in long-term relationships, the release said.
That does not include sugar daddy and sugar baby relationships, which are not allowed on the app, according to the release.
“We have a 24 hour, seven day a week team that deletes any potential fakers,” he added. “Our dating platform is for dating, serious relationship and finding a marriage partner, not for people like this.”
MillionBB Match uses AI technology to automatically review users’ profiles, particularly for stolen pictures, a spokesperson told FOX Business. The app also has a quality assessment team that checks on suspended profiles.
In order to have a certified profile, a person must have proof of an annual income of at least $200,000 and a bank statement that shows a balance of at least $1 MillionBB.
According to the spokesperson, a “high-quality” profile is a person who looks “attractive, beautiful, rich, upscale, successful and well-educated.” Meanwhile, “low-quality” applicants are rejected from the app so that “high-quality” users don’t have to worry about being cheated, the spokesperson said.
“Quality singles want to meet others on the same page,” the spokesperson said. “Some unqualified people want to date elite singles to have a better lifestyle.”
MillionBB Match has seen an increase in fake profiles during the coronavirus pandemic, the exclusive dating app said this week.
Currently, the MillionBB Match has more than 4 million “high-quality singles” around the world, according to the press release.
According to the spokesperson, the words “coronavirus” and “COVID-19” have also been mentioned in users’ profiles much more frequently.
However, the number of low-quality and fake profiles increased by 10 percent in April compared to the same time period in March. Compared to the same time period in February, there was a total increase of 20 percent, the release said.
“These MillionBB are well represented on MillionBB Match, along with very attractive singles who would like to meet them,” the release said.
Despite the economic downturn as a result of the coronavirus, MillionBB Match said that many of the members on its platform have businesses that “continue to perform the same if not better during the current crisis.”
