How does BigChurch.com scam you?
Scam No.1 – Legal Reuse And Distribution Of Profile Info
At the moment when you are creating your profile, posting photographs and uploading personal information, and customizing your profile, BigChurch.com gains absolute proprietary rights over that content and any other content posted on the public site. BigChurch.com even has the legal rights to freely distribute your personal info on other websites, so you shouldn’t be surprised to see your photos and data posted on other dating sites who are owned by the same company as BigChurch.com. They also have all legal rights to give or sell these information to other dating networks they sign a contract with.
PROOF OF SCAM: “Once you post, send or otherwise make publicly available any Content through the Services (“Personal Content”), you expressly grant us, and hereby represent that you have the right to grant us, a perpetual, irrevocable, world-wide, assignable, sub-licensable, and transferable right and license to quote, re-post, use, copy, reproduce, modify, create derivative works of, incorporate into other works, distribute, transmit, broadcast, communicate, publicly display, publicly perform and otherwise exploit such Content in any form or media, anywhere, and without any notice or compensation to you of any kind.”
Scam No.2 – Fabrication Of Member’s Profiles
1) Your photographs will be distributed to other dating networks where you are not in control of those profiles (then who is?) and the take-down procedure can be very difficult.
2) You can never know which profiles are real and which ones have been created using someone else’s profile data. So, BigChurch.com is not a legitimate dating service.
Scam No.3 – Billing And Automatic Renewal
Before you can even check out BigChurch.com it automatically takes you to a page where you are asked to pay for a membership upgrade. If you choose to skip the payment and subscription step at first, you are later extorted money. When you try to send someone a message, or try to read an email you’ve received you are unable to. Then, you are automatically redirected to a different page where they ask you to choose a payment plan and provide your credit card info. Also, the subscription is automatically recurring and will continue until you cancel your paid membership.
Here are the given options you can choose from:
- $29.99 for 1 month of subscription (automatically renewable)
- $60 for 3 months of subscription (automatically renewable)
- $79.99 for 6 months of subscription (automatically renewable)
- $99.99 for 4 months of subscription (automatically renewable)
PROOF OF SCAM: “In order to provide continuous service, we automatically renew all paid subscriptions for the Services two (2) days prior to the date such subscriptions expire. Such renewals shall be for a period equivalent to the period of your initial subscription to the Services or a shorter period of time if specified, and in our discretion, at the price of the same or comparable Services then in effect.”
Scam No.4 – Computer-Automated Communications
Even though it’s the last fraudulent trick on our list, the computer-generated and completely automated messages are one of the first scams you are exposed to. Basically, all communications sent to you by the site’s profiles are completely fake and require no human involvement. So, even if you start a conversation – you will be communicating with a software program and soon the correspondence will make no sense. BigChurch.com confesses to using electronic communications in order to engage you into the site’s services and get you to upgrade to a paid membership.
PROOF OF SCAM: “By using the Services, you consent to receiving electronic communications, e.g., email, from us or our subsidiaries and affiliated entities. These communications will include notices about your Account and information concerning or related to the Services. These communications are part of your relationship with us and you receive them as part of your membership.”
