The speedy and easy signup process on the online dating portal InstaBoink.com fits in with the simple design on the landing page. There is no lengthy matching process, and the user is not forced into writing long bios, just their very necessary details. The idea behind InstaBoink.com is to connect people fast through a more random process. The whole enrolment process is similar to Tinder's modern swiping technology.
After you have given your preferences by swiping, and adding your email address, you will be redirected to the main area. But before this, the portal is using the first deceptive business tactic by telling you that there are only a few spots left in your area and it is recommended to register fast before it is too late. This is nothing other than a piece of misleading information, and a marketing gimmick. After finalizing the enrolment process by choosing a password and name, the user will be redirected again.
The website InstaBoink.com is only the front face of the huge rip-off!
The new member will be redirected to the members’ area of instanthookup.com. There is nothing special here, just the familiar interface of dating portals with the same functions and a big preview of existing members. If you want to interact or see any details of other users, you are asked to upgrade your account and purchase a subscription. Nothing is free on the portal besides the free sign up. The basic membership is totally useless. The portal is operated by Quad Strategy Ltd. based in Kent, the UK. The trick is the three-day trial membership, which will be offered to the new members. Here the scam finally starts. The time to cancel the trial membership is so tight that the user will fail, and his subscription will be changed into an expensive regular premium-membership with automatic renewal.
The automatic renewal of the trial membership is mentioned in the terms and conditions
"The Trial Offer is a promotional offer that is an integral part of a Monthly Subscription. At the end of the three (3) trial days, the subscription will be automatically charged, unless prior notice by the Subscriber..."
