The online dating website AussieFlirting.com advertises with a solid offer. The landing page looks good and shows some profile pictures. So we assume that this website is filled with good-looking and open-minded users. But we did some research and found out that this website is everything, but surely not recommendable. It is a fake chat and a subscription trap. We explain how the rip-off works.

Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 28/08/2023)
Aussie flirting is available for different countries around the world and focused on the use by the Users with a leisure and entertainment reason explained in further detail later.
The User declares to be in agreement with the automatic renewal of the 3-day trial pass to the Elite Monthly Payment, in case of non-cancellation of the trial pass, at least before the third day of having acquired the 3-day trial period, the renewal will be made automatically on that day.
The operator of this website is the company named The Perfect Match LTD. This firm is located in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. Of course, you should never judge a book by its cover, but there is a difference in paid dating websites. Such a location is a very untrustworthy location for an Australian dating website.
Even if the operator does not mention the use of fake profiles that are operated by fake operators in the terms and conditions, we are sure that this is the case here. The reason is that a lot of rip off operators calls the use of a fake chat with the purpose of entertainment.
The fake operators entice the user to get a paid membership
Plus some reviews of former costumers on the internet are the same opinion as we are. Additionally, the website is a subscription trap. After the registration, the new user will receive a free basic-membership. That sounds like a fair offer, but a free basic-membership is useless and only one step ahead of the scam. At this point, the fake operators will get in touch with the user, but the user can’t read the messages with a basic-membership.
To read or write messages, the user will need a paid premium-membership which is quite expensive. But the operator got a second trick to lure the user into the trap. The trap is a trial premium-membership that will run for three days only but the deadline to cancel it is three days as well.
