I don't personally use the dummies.. but I support your statement. They should scale.

So.. you are saying that pre-55... DPS is not relevant in any way in terms of optimization for game play?

Nonsense.

By mid 20s+ as you are aquiring more skills, and you want to figure out which ones (and in which rotation) are even worth having you your skill-bars/keys... a target dummy (conveniently on your ship and your level) makes a lot of practical sense.

Stop being endgame elitist.

This is an excellent point. If you've just unlocked a new ability while leveling and want to work out how to fit it in your rotation it before queuing up to a warzone, the dummy is the perfect way to do it.

UP.
They should fix this bug or refund me with ingame credits or cartel credits whatever, because it doesn't work as it should to

I've yet to buy a dummy but I note that there are two available - OPS and player.
Does the player one scale?

There are paying customers who did not get the xpac that are at lvl 50 running lvl 50 HMs and OPs. So because they didn't get the xpac the training dummy is useless for them? DPS potential and maxing at lvl 50 is now obsolete for them? That makes no sense, especially when it was potentially purchased with real money because they could actually use it at the time.

Neither of them scale. Both are level 55.

I posted in CS forum that they need to change it or give us our money back. Go over and show some support. We may get something done about it.

What's the purpose of having a lvl 55 dummy while your character is lvl 30 ?
