Badoo.com — if you receive an any email that includes the words badoo it in anywhere, I would strongly advise that you delete it immediately
I received an email from a friend saying she had left me a message on a site called BADOO for me. She is German, so I received the message in German - I then clicked to view the message in English. I assumed it was a social networking site similar to Facebook for German people and that she was inviting me to join…
How very naïve!
I clicked the link to the message. In order to retrieve the message I was asked to enter some simple info, i.e., my name, location and date of birth. This seemed harmless enough (at no stage was my email address solicited), so I entered same, and suddenly, hey presto, I have a profile on an internet dating site linked to my private email account. I promptly received an email facilitating a password to my new account: “Welcome to BADOO!”
I had to use my private email address and the password I received to enter the site to delete an account I had never created in the first place.
Having done some research into BADOO, it would appear that this is their modus operandi. There have literally been millions of complaints about BADOO and their underhand and devious method of signing innocent people up to their dating site. Surely it is illegal? It is an absolute con. They use your info for data mining purposes.
I have had the same email address for many years and unfortunately cannot delete the account and create a new one as I work freelance and cannot afford to lose potential clients. BADOO now have my personal info and email address and there is nothing I can do about it at all. Be warned. If you receive an any email that includes the words BADOO it in anywhere, I would strongly advise that you delete it immediately.
