FabGuys.com is an online sex dating platform for gay, bisexual, and bi-curious men. We were pleasantly surprised at first, because everything seemed to be real, and professionally done. Initially, our only complaint was that the interface looked rather dated. However, everything changed as we proceeded with our review, and paid attention to former user’s experiences. We found many complaints which point to a possible scam, or at least, an unprofessional platform. The portal is managed by Winchester Consultancy LTD. This company is based in London.
Free to use
FabGuys.com advertises as a British dating portal for gay and bisexual men, and that it is free to join, and use. It claims to be funded through advertising, and that it only hosts authentic profiles, so you can arrange real dates. There are no images on the landing site, and it looks as if they have not really worked on bettering their graphic design since 2006. Therefore, it does not give us the impression of a blooming and professionally run business.
Beyond appearances, their long-standing career should be a sign of a trustworthy portal, or is it just a well-hidden rip-off? In fact, it is free to register, however, it is possible to pay for a premium subscription as well. The profiles are manually verified, and the platform requires a photo. Also, you must complete your profile, and write a little about your interests. So far, so good. Furthermore, the Terms and Conditions do not mention anything about fake profiles or fishy cancellation policies. From experience, we know that these are the biggest risks among this type of website.
However, we moved on with our research and found out as much as possible about the portal and the operator. With such a long career, the users have shared a lot of reviews about the platform. It turns out that this portal may have seen better days. Many users complained that the website is moderated by amateurish operators who ban users, for no good reason.
What is even more concerning is that many of these bans seem to come shortly after signing up for a paid membership. We find this extremely fishy. Many of the users also report encountering dodgy characters on this website. However, in general, everyone must be extremely careful when dealing with people online. This part, at least, is not necessarily the company’s fault, but we are still not convinced about this portal.
