The online dating platform FetishBuddy.co.uk claims to be the perfect place to find steamy fetish-experiences in no time at all. The site advertises free registration, free messaging, a constantly growing member base, and hand-checked profiles. To determine whether the portal can be recommended or not, we inspect the terms and conditions and search the internet for user reviews. Also, we do some research on the site’s operator. Unfortunately, we must strongly advise you to refrain from becoming a member here. It is a rip-off.
After the free registration, users are only granted very limited access to the site’s features. To be able to open and read incoming chat messages, a paid VIP-membership subscription is needed. These subscriptions, however, are extremely dangerous traps. They extend automatically and are nearly impossible to cancel. The site’s operator is known to simply ignore all cancellation requests, in order to get as much money as possible out of each user. So, it is a subscription rip-off.
Fake profiles and chatbots
To lure new users into signing up for the pricey VIP-subscriptions as quickly as possible, the site uses some cheeky tricks. Shortly after the free registration, users are flooded with chat messages, which appear to be sent by attractive members. In fact, however, these messages are fake. They are sent by an automated system, so-called “chatbots”. Moreover, the members’ area is full of fake profiles and meeting a real person for a “steamy fetish date” here seems highly improbable.
Our experience with the operator
FetishBuddy.co.uk is operated by date4friend AG, from Zug, in Switzerland. This company runs a huge network of untrustworthy online dating platforms and regularly receives negative customer reviews and complaints online. Accordingly, we must strongly advise you to stay away from their websites and services.
