FuckBookDating.net shows an image of an attractive woman on the landing page. Also, free registration is offered. On the homepage, we read about so-called ice-breaker messages. Now, ice-breakers are automated messages that can be a great feature to help meet new people. As the name says, it breaks the ice between two people. However, they can be used as a scam as well. That is the case on this site.
On the one hand, the operator of the platform creates fake profiles that show fictitious people. On the other hand, new users have to agree to the terms of ice-breaker messages.
Part of those terms is that an ice-breaker will be sent from a user´s profile. Now, the problem is that users do not know if and when messages are sent from their profile. Also, other users will not see that a message is actually an ice-breaker, according to reviews. So, users will be stimulated to chat with those ice-breaker messages. Of course, that is not a good thing. But, that is not the actual problem. Now, costs will occur after the registration. A user will need a premium membership to chat.
As we see it, the membership is not worth its money.
The following is stated in the terms and conditions
At the time of registration for our services, we ask all of our users if they would like to sign up for our Icebreaker News and Icebreaker Actions services (the “Icebreaker Services” or “Services”). Through these services, we send Icebreaker messages, view profiles, send friend requests and send gifts (“Icebreaker Actions” or “Actions”) on behalf of and in the name of such consenting registered users. The Icebreaker Actions aim to introduce users to each other, facilitate and support conversation between users, encourage users to respond to each other's content, introduce new users to our most active community members, and generally promote the use of our service.
The subscription ends in a trap
On this site, a user will pay for an expensive subscription. But, users will not know if the messages that animate them to make the purchase are real or not. However, users will send money for a subscription and will be disappointed, according to reviews. Former users have experienced difficulty in finding real people. Plus, a trial membership will be offered, which is the actual trap. It runs for one day and will renew to a normal premium membership afterwards. It is a rip-off. The operator of the site is Delphi AG which is based in Pfäffikon, Switzerland.
