The online dating website bAdults.com.au may look good on the first view. But the more time we spent on the site, the more hints we found that this portal is a brazen rip-off. On the starting page, we see profile pics of attractive women. Plus, we read that the registration is free, and contact is guaranteed.
That all sounds great, but in reality, these offers are made purely to lure the visitor into a fraud. The registration is free, but the use of the website is not. As a user, you will need to buy coins to be able to send messages.
A paid dating website is not a scam in itself, but as bAdults.com.au is a moderated chat, it is one. The members pool is full of fake profiles, operated by moderators.
This is mentioned in the Terms and Conditions, which they have worded rather well, calling the fake operators ‘Cupid Users’.
Terms and Conditions
“The service also offers a myriad of options, such as communicating, flirting and even potentially meeting another user in person, as well as numerous other portal functions such as communicating with the real-life profile of a user, as well as profiles created and managed by the C.N. (hereinafter referred to as Cupid User). The Cupid users can experience virtual and erotic fantasies exclusively; real-life dates are not supported (see section 5 of the General Entertainment Guidelines). The communication with Cupid users is subject to charges and offers various options to converse and enjoy each other...”
The landing page guarantees contact, which means that a moderator will get in touch with you. But a real life date will never happen, as physical contact is not possible with a fake operator.
The online dating website operator is Casual Networks B.V., located in Venlo, The Netherlands. We did some research and found some unfavourable reviews about the site and its operator. It seems that this company is well-known for its rip off. The Casual Networks B.V. runs many dating websites that all work in the same way.
