At first sight, the online dating platform FuckBuddiesNearYou.com looks legit and trustworthy. The registration on the site is free and can be done in no time. The site promises to be the perfect place to find local people, who are interested in meeting up for a sex date without any commitments.
Free membership vs paid membership
As a free basic member, users can browse the site, view the member’s profiles, modify your own profile and send so-called “Flirts” to others. All other features, including the chat, are exclusively reserved for premium-members. To become a premium-member, users must pay. There are several premium-subscriptions to choose from, including a relatively cheap trial-membership. From our experience, we do not recommend anyone to sign up for any of these subscriptions. According to the terms and conditions of the website, all subscriptions extend automatically. The trial-membership also turns into one of the more expensive subscriptions automatically. These are typical signs of a subscription trap. Even though we cannot offer any proof of a scam, we find these conditions all too familiar and alarmingly suspicious.
Very suspicious operator
In the terms and conditions, we read that the operator of the website for the USA is Dating Ahead Inc, which is based in Knoxville. For international users, the operator is Dating Ahead LTD, which is based in Nicosia, Cyprus. Cyprus is well-known to be a preferred location for untrustworthy online dating companies. We have already had a lot of bad experiences with some of them. For us, this is another reason to believe that FuckBuddiesNearYou.com is a rip-off.
Furthermore, we find out during our research, that the very same website used to be operated by Infinite Connections Inc, from Plantation, Florida. This company operates several online dating websites, which are known to be subscription trap scams. Therefore, we found enough hints that make us mistrust FuckBuddiesNearYou.com altogether. We absolutely do not recommend anyone to register here.
