This is my experience with the site fungerund.com. It's a story but it's also a review and is my gift for them. It's a long story, so if you don't feel like reading it, you can skip to the bottom an just read the TLDR section (Too Long Didn't Read)
So I was looking for a free e-book, you know like scribd.com has, you just join a free membership trial period and you are allowed to read e-books, as I did in the past. I found this site called fungerund.com they claimed if I join their free trial membership for 5 days I can have access to unlimited e-books, games, movies, and music. And I said, OK, sound good to me. Then I proceeded to sign up, giving all my credentials including credit card number and everything. The same method that scribd has.
I saw not much of a problem in that and then I went to their main page, I attached a photo to this review of their deceptive claim, it said "The largest movie collection on the Internet" and I thought ok there are a few gems that I've been searching and was unable to find, perhaps I could find them in "the largest movie collection on the internet", yeah right?
Next, I logged into the site, a pop-up bar on the top asked me to confirm my email. I said ok, I'll do that later and decided to browse their content. Rember they said unlimited movie collection? I went to the movies section, browsing under horror category because I'm a big horror movie fan among other things. I expected to find some interesting stuff, but the real horror happened when I witnessed the site content. They only have like 50 horror movies and all of them were very low budget and totally unknown. And I have a very broad knowledge of good horror movie titles. So they were unknown in a bad way, of course, these movies that no horror fan would ever want to watch, I reckon.
Then I saw a cover of a movie called The Ritual, I know it's quite a new movie and very well rated too. I clicked on it, there is no year of release to be seen, I click on watch it now button and the movie starts, it was another The Ritual movie. An unknown on from 2007. Ok, I had it enough at this point. I decided to cancel my free membership right away, and they didn'0t even asked me why. Meanwhile, I went to google for fugerund.com as a potential scam. I found out that many sites have given it a low trust rating, somewhere around 22%. Not good. But that's not all. The confirmation email they were supposed to send me never reached my inbox, and I even clicked on the resend confirmational email button many times. Even after I canceled I got no mail. This is very suspicious and I was a fool not to check the validity of the site before I entered my credentials.
I wanted to attach a screenshot of their appalling horror movie collection, but I just can't, since I canceled my free membership trial. I just cant access their movie menu anymore, as soon as I click on it, I get a big white pop up box on a dark background, saying "Welcome back! Confirm your Premium Membership* * Your membership will rebill at 7.95 per month." How nice, I can at least attach this screenshot! One last screen I'm going to attach is about my account information saying that my membership is still active right now. I tried to go through the cancelation process again and it finally said "Your premium account has already been canceled. No recurring charges will be applied to your account." I really hope so!
I also read another's review of the site that said that fake movies on youtube had led people directly to fungerund.com. Another weird thing, on the photo I've attached on their front site they say $17.95 per month, but inside their site, they say 7.95$ per month. Also I don't know why on the second screenshot there are 2 music icons, one has black headphones, one has green ones and both say "music" It looks like a mistake, again weird.
On a final note, they might be using my credit card credentials in the future, I'll be monitoring my transactions closely. But it's most likely, that they just hope for people to forget about the trial period and automatically get billed 7.95$ for the next month. I know a lot of sites do this dirty trick since they themselves state so beforehand. Finishing this story/review and still got no confirmational email from them... Stay away from this site folks!
TLDR; Fungerund.com is a site full of red flags such as deceptive claims to offer unlimited movies, music, books and even games, has nothing of value or quality to offer really, it is indeed some kind of scam. Most likely the classic "Oh your free trial period is over, now you're getting billed!" type of scam. It also has low trust rating, around 22% on most scam verifying sites and also people say the fake movies on youtube lead them directly on fungerund.com - Stay away from this site folks!
