    Report for Friends-With-Benefits.com review

    The online dating portal Friends-With-Benefits.com presents itself with a starting page with a decent design. Nothing extraordinary here, just a picture of a couple and some low-quality previews of member profiles. The sign up is for free, and there is no further information about additional costs after the visitor registers.

    We have a look at the terms and conditions and read that the company behind the dating website is The Perfect Match Ltd. The operator is headquartered in Sofia, Bulgaria. This country is home for many corporates which are managing online dating sites. Most of them have bad reputations and are a rip-off. The same goes for Friends-With-Benefits.com. Reviews on the internet confirm that the portal is a scam and lures people into expensive subscriptions, memberships or packages which are either hard to cancel or have a monthly rebilling. Some people allege the site is also using faked profiles and has a moderated chat.

    Details on the Friends-With-Benefits.com review

    We find the appearance of the website Friends-With-Benefits.com not very appealing. The design is kind of boring, and the member profiles are of low quality and look faked to us. We are missing more details about the costs and services of the portal. Not a good start, but we will register anyway to find out more.

    The enrolment is done very quickly. Age, nickname, password and the email are all that the site requests. Alternatively, the user can sign in with his Google account. After verifying the email, the page redirects you to the user profile where you can add photos and personal details and preferences.

    The interface is straightforward and has the usual functions like search, settings, messages, visits, likes, cams and a small preview of VIP members. A few seconds later, the new member already gets messages from other members. But it is not possible to reply or see any details about those members. The User needs to purchase coins to use basic chat features.

    Clearly, the information on the starting page is misleading and false.

    Some investigation on the internet shows that the reputation of the portal and the company behind it is extremely poor. Former users complain about the subscription traps and how difficult it is to cancel the pricey, monthly recurring memberships. Many of them are seeking legal advice to terminate the subscriptions, some even want to sue the operator. It is no surprise that The Perfect Match Ltd. is based in Sofia. To enforce legal actions in Bulgaria is very difficult. The automatic monthly renewal is mentioned in the terms and conditions. The offer of a cheap 3-day trial membership is very tricky and must be cancelled within 2 hours. Otherwise, it will become a monthly subscription with automatic renewal until terminated.

    “Friends With Benefits offers the User the opportunity to try the Elite service for 3 days before choosing if they want to subscribe for longer. The User has the option to try this service for 3 days. If the User does not want to continue using the Service, he/she must cancel the aforementioned trial subscription before the beginning of the third day of its acquisition, although he/she can still enjoy the bonus until its completion. If the User does not cancel the trial pass within the stipulated period, the trial pass will be auto-renewed to a monthly Elite subscription during the third day of the Trial period.”

    We also find evidence of data leakage on the website, which the users also agree to when confirming the terms and conditions. Proof that the Friends-With-Benefits.com portal is using faked profiles could not be found, but we are sure that there is something fishy going on. How can a member receive many messages within minutes when his profile does not show any details or photos?

    How to cancel

    The User who purchases a pass or subscription via credit card will be attached to a method of periodic subscription. This subscription can be cancelled through the "cancel" button located in "Settings" if User used Hydropay, or through the email that Verotel will send to User when making the payment.

    If User cannot or do not know how to perform these two options, email to Support at least 24 hours before the admissible period for the cancellation and our team will take care of this action for the User. This cancellation will be effective on the date of expiration of the current subscription, as long as it has been rescinded within the period foreseen for each type of credit mentioned above. If the term has expired, the next period will be cancelled.

    The conclusion from our Friends-With-Benefits.com review

    Another good example of how some operators lure their customers with misleading and false information into a cheeky scam. The trick the company The Perfect Match Limited is using on his online dating website Friends-With-Benefits.com is not new but still very effective. We recommend that you stay away from this site and not to sign up. Otherwise, you might also end up in an expensive subscription rip-off and need legal help.

    Let us know your Friends-With-Benefits.com experience in the comments as well.
