FBM Online Connections LTD portrays HockeySingles.com as the perfect platform for hockey lovers and players. While the operator claims that the site is free, our review uncovered that a free membership is useless, and a paid subscription is a must. Also, it is impossible to verify the authenticity of the profiles. With its complex auto-renewal payment method, and an unclear cancellation policy, the website is a complete fraud.
A risky subscription
Even though the London-based operator promotes it as a free website, users must upgrade to a paid subscription to access the main services. Unfortunately, these premium features are expensive. Moreover, the operator does not guarantee that the profiles are genuine, or that the information they give is factual. This trick is employed to maintain plausible deniability while luring users into a rip-off.
Canceling a subscription is not easy. Most users end up paying for services they do not need. While the platform claims to remove spammers, our experience indicates the presence of numerous fictitious profiles.
Even though it is not indicated on the site, reviews by past users reveal that the platform is dominated by fictitious profiles. Most of these spam profiles will do anything to avoid a physical meeting. Others send irrelevant messages or replies to users.
During our review, we encountered numerous spam, or fictitious profiles. These keep users engaged, and subscriptions active, on this platform. The operator also provides a disclaimer. They do not guarantee that the information on this platform is true or accurate. Since user profile information cannot be verified, the platform is creating a gray area regarding scams, involving fictitious profiles.
The platform is managed by a risky and untrustworthy operator. The association between the operator, and Infinite Connections LTD, is not clear. However, both organizations share the same Terms and Conditions and contact email. This trend is common among companies which operate fake online dating websites. The operator will use different names in different countries, but maintain the same legal documents, like the Terms and Conditions.
