Badoo.comphone verification - the call never happens

Badoo forces me to enter my telephone number before it is even possible to access my profile. Unfortunately, the call never comes ... They have no problem charging my PayPal account and therefore know darn well who I am, so what's this nonsense supposed to be good for?

Their pretexts for demanding selfies, phone verification and other bullocks are ridiculous anyway: since sending messages and pretty much doing anything costs money, they make quite a nice income from messages sent to fraudsters. To identify them, all they would have to do is browse the profiles like customers have to do it, then the false ones would be obvious without any further ado.
