The landing page of AustralianFlings.com looks well-designed. Here we are also told that over 3 million members have registered so far. A very promising high number. The landing page seems quite familiar to us. In fact, the landing page of the dating website MatchAndTease.com looks precisely the same. In an older review, we revealed that the latter one is nothing but a rip-off. We do not have high hopes for AustralianFlings.com either. It turns out that the landing page is not the only thing both websites have in common. AustralianFlings.com, just as MatchAndTease.com, is nothing but a fake chat scam.
Before we sign up, we decide to do some research about this dating website online. We fail to find enough reviews for AustralianFlings.com. Considering the dating website claims to have millions of members, this seems very suspicious. Later we find a statement in the terms and conditions, which explains the misleading number of members.
This is from the terms and conditions
5.3. Gate Switch Development B.V. explicitly reserves the right to send messages on australianflings.com through self-created profiles. These are fictitious profiles with which no physical agreements are possible.
“Self-created profiles” are nothing but fake profiles, which portray non-existing members. These profiles serve as a cover for the fake chat operators working for the company. The real users are not supposed to find out about their existence. The information about the fake profiles is deliberately well-hidden. The users will encounter the fake chat operators in the chat, not knowing who they truly are. It is the fake chat operators’ task to seduce the users in the chat, by enticing them to send many messages.
We are not surprised to see who is in charge here
Getting in touch with other members on AustralianFlings.com is not free. As a user, you must purchase virtual “credits” in the shop and redeem them to send a message. Each message sent in the chat costs up to 2.6 AUD. Therefore, chatting on AustralianFlings.com can become extremely expensive. Gate Switch Development BV is known for this kind of rip-off. The company, based in the Dutch town of Deventer, runs a few scam sites, where fake chat operators try to make the users lose all their money in the expensive chat.
