The online dating website FuckDate.com looks great on the first view. On the landing page we read about free registration, and we see a selection of profile pictures. More information about the site and its offer is missing. Because of that we did some research. On the internet, we found many reports about the site. Former customers claim that it is a rip-off with a fake chat. We checked the terms and conditions, but we did not find a note about moderation. However, we found a note about ice-breaker messages. Ice-breakers can be a great way to start a chat if you do not know how to do it by yourself. It is an automated message which contains a normal question. But ice-breaker messages can also be used to scam users. It might be the case on this site that automated messages come from fake profiles.
Fake profiles in the members´pool
Evidence of a fake chat in the terms and conditions is missing. But former customers share their information on the web and most users had the same experiences. Plus, the operator of the site has got a bad reputation. According to the information that we found the rip-off starts right after the registration. At this point, a new user will receive many messages that come from profiles that seem to be fake. But, a fake profile is not marked as such. Also, the user does not get a notification about a message being an ice-breaker. With the ice-breaker messages the users are persuaded to spend money.
Costs will occur after the free registration
Only the registration is free. After that costs will occur for credits which are needed to send messages. So, the user will pay for credits to send messages to a fake profile, from which messages are created automatically. The operator of the site is FuckDate LLC which is based in Florida, USA.
