At first sight, the online dating portal FuckAStranger.co.uk looks cheap. There are a few pictures of naked strangers, and not much more. But we found some information online about this site, and it has a poor reputation. Most importantly, the operator is well known for running a huge dating network with more than 3,500 dating sites. The company behind this scam is Venntro Media Group Ltd, based in Slough, in the United Kingdom. If you decide to register on this site, your personal information will appear on thousands of other websites. How is that for privacy?
But the lack of data protection is just the tip of the iceberg. During our research for this review, we came across many reports from former users. They mention a rip-off with a fake chat and a subscription trap. It seems that you will only get to chat with fake chat operators. They will make you spend all your money.
The following statement is from the terms and conditions
Your information will be shared with members of sites in the same casual dating network as the site you have joined. (…)
The Site is an entertainment service. Your use of the Site and Service is entirely at your own risk.
Fake chat scam
After carefully reading the terms and conditions, we discover that this website is for “entertainment” only. That is one way of acknowledging a fake chat without naming it. So, this website uses fictional profiles which are controlled by fake chat operators. Their only purpose is to lure the users into spending money. Therefore, the chances of becoming poorer are high, while the chances of meeting anyone are equal to nothing.
To register on this site, users must subscribe to an expensive premium-membership which will renew automatically. Unfortunately, the site’s operator is known to make the cancellation process extremely difficult. Consequently, users can quickly end up stuck in a long and costly subscription trap. In a nutshell, this website is a very bad choice.
