The landing page of 50PlusContact.co.nz is very simple and does not offer any information about the customers they are targeting. They do not mention the services they provide, or the money that a subscriber must pay, to have full access to the portal. However, the platform looks quite promising. A visitor without any previous experience with dating websites, would find it reassuring, since it does not show any pornographic content.
The registration is easy and quick, and it does not require too many personal details. All that is needed is five minutes, and a valid email address, where a user will get a confirmation link to verify the account.
As soon as we get access to the members' area, we realize that 50PlusContact.co.nz is not free. To be able to send or receive messages, a user must purchase a membership, that unfortunately, is not what it looks like.
Too many complaints
The subscription itself is not a big problem, since it is cheap and includes all the features and paid options offered by the platform. However, on the internet, we have found many reviews left by former users pointing out that the contracts are a big scam. It looks like they extend automatically, every month, and the company makes them almost impossible to terminate.
Date4Friend AG, the Swiss operator registered in Zug, refuses to accept the cancellation, and keeps charging the customer’s credit card without any valid reason.
That is not all
We also read some more allegations concerning the possibility that the profiles on 50PlusContact.co.nz might be fake. If that was true, the chat would be another rip-off. But we must admit, that after carefully reading the terms and conditions, we were not able to find definitive evidence to prove the accusations.
