The online interracial dating website IrDastes.com looks like a great choice to look for an interracial date in the US. The modern and stylish design is appealing, and the portal offers its service on a mobile application. But after more investigation and reading some testimonies from former members, we become more and more suspicious.
First suspicious thing is the lack of information about where the operator Online Connections Inc./ FBM Online Connections Limited Company is located. One fact we do know is that it is a big network of online dating portals. The testimonies say that they are all ripping off their customers with subscription scams and are using moderators. We could not find any evidence for both accusations, and they are also not mentioned in the terms and conditions.
Yes, the subscriptions do have automatic renewal, but this is not a rip-off. The operator is admitting it in the terms and conditions.
Here an excerpt from the terms and conditions:
“WE USE AN AUTOMATIC RE-BILL CYCLE ACCORDING TO YOUR SELECTED PAYMENT OPTION.”
The second issue we are critical is about personal data protection. Which, for sure, rarely exists. In the terms and conditions, we read about monitoring by the operator. There it is mentioned that the operator reserves the right to monitor all profiles and private messages:
"We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor any and all public and private postings and messages."
It also says that the operator shares your personal information on all other sites of the network. This could be why former members had the experiences of a fake chat and the existence of fantasy profiles.
