The online dating portal FuckForFree.com offers a lot of good things. But the information on the landing page is misleading and irritating. The name of the site is also irritating. The registration is the only thing that is free here. After the registration, costs will occur for a premium-membership which is needed to read and send messages. A normal premium-membership is quite expensive, according to former users. So, the operator of the site offers a cheap alternative. A trial membership is offered, which runs for one day. This offer sounds good at first.
However, the trial membership is a cheeky trap. After one day of the trial membership, it will extend automatically to a normal subscription which runs for a whole month. We also found some reviews which mention that the cancellation of a normal subscription is not simple. According to the information on the internet, the operator makes the termination difficult. The operator of the site is Dime Argyle who are based in Grubbenvorst, in the Netherlands. This company has a bad reputation because it does not accept ordinary terminations. There is more to mention about this site.
We found the following note in the terms and conditions
We ask all our Users whether they want to opt-in into our icebreaker messages and icebreaker actions service, which means that we send icebreaker messages, view profiles, send friend requests, send gifts, comment on content and mark content as hot (icebreaker actions) under the name and on behalf of these opted-in Users. The icebreaker messages and icebreaker actions aim to introduce Users to each other, to facilitate and support a conversation.
The use of Ice-breaker messages
During our research, we found many reports about a fake chat. However, we did not find any information about fake chat operators or fictional profiles in the legal information. But this site uses “ice-breakers”, which are automated messages. During registration, you must accept receiving those messages. They are sent from your profile without any notice to you. Plus, the ice-breaker messages are not marked as such. Those messages stimulate users into a chat which will end in a trap. They will need a paid membership which is hard to cancel. Or they fall for the trial membership.
