The online dating platform FuckkBook.com looks like a solid choice. On the landing page, we see erotic content and information about free registration. It all sounds good. But we did some research and found many reviews about a scam. According to the experience of former users, this website is a fake chat. This site uses ice-breaker messages. That function is noted on the landing page, which is a good thing. But it is the only positive thing we can find here. Ice-breakers are automated messages which will be sent to your profile.
According to the reviews, it starts right after the registration. In just a few minutes, the user’s virtual post box is full of messages from other profiles. Former users mention that the profiles are fake. We must point out that proof for a fake chat scam is missing. The operator of the site does not mention fictional content in the terms and conditions. However, fake profiles are not needed here because of the ice-breakers. During registration, new members must agree to receive and send ice-breakers. However, these messages are sent without notifying the user.
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 goal is a subscription trap
Ice-breaker messages are not marked as such. So, the user does not know that the messages were created and sent automatically. The purpose of the ice-breakers is to lure users into a chat. But to chat, a premium-membership is needed, which is expensive. The operator of the site offers a cheap trial membership as well. A one-day trial membership is offered which is the actual trap. This will renew automatically to a monthly paid subscription. The operator is Delphi AG, who seem to be based in the USA. An imprint is not provided, so further details are missing.
