The online dating website FWB.dating looks good on the first view. However, we found out that this platform is nothing but a huge rip-off. It is part of a big network run by Date4Friend AG. The operator of the network is based in Zug, Switzerland. They are well-known on the internet for their unreputable collection of dating portals.
We did some research on the internet and found out how the cheeky scam works. It all starts with misleading information on the landing page. There we read about a free registration and that all of the profiles on this site are checked by the operator. That could be a great thing, but in this case, the operator itself is not trustworthy at all. Right after the registration, a new member will receive a free basic-membership, which is useless.
It is a cheeky trap at FWB.dating
With a basic-membership it is not possible to read or to send messages. At the start, a new member will receive a lot of messages from other profiles. Those profiles seem to be a fake and managed by fake operators who entice the user to get a paid subscription.
A fake chat is not mentioned in the terms and conditions. Fake chat is mentioned in many reviews which come from former customers. In the end, we assume that this site uses fake profiles, but evidence for that in the terms and conditions is missing.
In any case, the many messages received will entice the user to pay for a subscription which is quite expensive. The operator will offer a cheap trial membership which turns out to be the actual trap. A termination in time is not possible. The subscription will extend automatically to a monthly paid membership with high costs. That is the typical rip-off for which the operator is known.
