At first sight, BBWEncounters.com looks like a decent choice. The portal offers free registration, advertises with attractive BBW-members, and promises to be a great place to arrange erotic encounters. We decide to dig a little deeper and search the internet for user reviews. Furthermore, we carefully read the site’s terms and conditions, and create an account. Unfortunately, it does not take long before we find out that the site is a scam with a fake chat.
In the terms and conditions, we find the following
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.
According to this information, the site contains fictional profiles, which are created and managed by company employees. As these profiles are not marked as such, they cannot be distinguished from “regular” member profiles. Consequently, it must be assumed, that every single member profile is fake and cannot be met in real-life. So, every chat conversation is entirely pointless and can never result in a date.
Expensive and senseless
Unfortunately, users are not sufficiently informed about the fake profiles. Hoping to meet someone with whom a date can be arranged, they are willing to use the chat. But the chat feature is only accessible to paying subscribers. In this way, users are tricked into spending their money on these useless membership subscriptions.
Possibly a subscription trap rip-off
As if the fake chat scam was not enough, there is another possible rip-off that must be mentioned. All subscriptions extend automatically if they are not terminated in time. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but we have already had some bad experience with the operator of the site. We advise everyone to stay away from these subscriptions. The automatic renewal might very well lead into a subscription trap.
BBWEncounters.com is operated by VodFun Limited, who are based in Douglas, Isle of Man. This company is well-known for its vast network of scam dating websites, and the internet is packed with negative user reviews and complaints about it.
