I do not usually criticize other dating sites accessible to belgium and I think this is the first time I will. Moreover, it is more a rant than a criticism and I will not TwoForLife as administrator, but as a user of Badoo! I think it is useful to point out some things especially when undoubtedly far exceed the limits of honesty. Unfortunately, these practices become so commonplace that we do not panic and even though the time is still beautiful and very serious!
This morning in my personal box, I received a series of emails from the dating site Badoo. Below is a screenshot of the presentation of one of them.
In this email, here is a screenshot below Badoo warns me that my friend "x" (nicks were blurred by me) just leave me a message, and above all, very, very quickly before that it does not go off, I have to follow the link included in the email to go read it!
Screenshot of the email sent to my home address by Badoo.
By following this link, I get a series of dialog boxes, which I try to extract personal like this, I think they have enough and my discerning eye, manages to avoid them!
So far we can only talk about questionable practices and underhanded, I repeat, I have the discerning eye, which suggests to me an impressive number of people have also fallen into the trap!
Following is frankly outrageous and clearly illegal! I finished therefore get where I wanted Badoo happens, that is to say the place where I can finally read my messages.
Now here below, the message that "x" is supposed to have left me. A real message, no difference with other, clearly identified as coming from him! I am surprised, because I do not recognize how to write to my friend "x", and I asked him via sms, if she has left a message with two links on Badoo. She confirms that no, never, as I expected, since as qu'utlisateur Badoo, it is not possible to send links!
Here we are at the heart of the problem! By "borrowing" the identity of my friend, without asking his opinion Badoo created fake messages in his name to promote his site! The worst part is that after the first of the two links I fall again on a dialog box, asking me my username and password. I think, right, I did so far connected at any time, and while I do think ... too late, I was going to invite my mutual, my lawyer, my family doctor and all my MSN address book to join Badoo!
Badoo is using our identity, your identity, to promote his site. Seeking "Badoo + scam" on Google, I found an impressive number of articles of this kind. But every time the subject is different! I invite you to do the same, you will learn énnormément about this site and its practices devoid of qualms.
I invite you to leave a comment in comment below if you too have seen this kind of thing or other annomalies on site Badoo. Any other advice is also welcome!
On behalf of all, thank you!
