The homepage of 50PlusContact.nz does not stand out for originality. Anyway, the absence of any explicit content gives a sense of familiarity to the platform. As a consequence of that, a visitor would feel reassured, and will have the impression of being on an honest and serious dating site.
A nice picture of a couple in love serves as the background for the registration form. Besides that, we cannot find any other information. In our experience, this is often a red flag. A reliable operator should always provide the reader with enough details about the services that he offers and the costs involved. This is clearly not the case with Date4Friend AG, the Swiss company registered in Zug. Because of their multiple scams, they have earned a horrible reputation online.
Are the profiles real?
The first thing we notice after we get access to the members' area is that we receive several suspicious messages. The reason why we are so wary of this sudden popularity is that our profile is incomplete, and does not even show any picture. Normally, an account like that does not get any attention at all, unless those messages come from a fake chat operator or a chatbot.
This is exactly what many past users claim with their online reviews. However, we must admit that in the terms and conditions, we did not find any reference about a possible fake chat, or the use of any software to send automatic messages.
Here is the trap
But what is even worse is the fact that the VIP memberships, which are necessary if a member wants to use the chat, turn out to be a subscription rip-off. All the paid options, in fact, extend automatically unless they are terminated by the user. The company makes this cancellation almost impossible, asking for an express written declaration which must be sent 14 days in advance.
