The landing page of CountryDatingAustralia.com looks a little too old-fashioned. There is a photo of a horse and a couple wearing cowboy hats. Obviously, the operator wants to show us that this dating site was made for people living in the rural areas of Australia. In fact, the operator does not care about where the users are from and what they truly desire, so long as they sign up for the cheeky trial membership.
Are the other profiles legit
Before signing up, we try to find any other reviews about this site. As it turns out, nobody is talking about CountryDatingAustralia.com. However, several users have still signed up. Their profiles look real, and we cannot find any proof for the existence of fake profiles. Although we can see who else has registered, we cannot contact any of the other members. Every time we click on one of the other profiles, we are brought to the shop. Apparently, we need a paid subscription if we wish to communicate with others using the chat.
It all starts with a cheap trial
The cheapest option is a trial membership that lasts 5 days and only costs about 6 AUD. The other memberships cost more and last longer. If you pay attention to what is written in the fine print, you can find out that the short trial membership can turn into the most expensive subscription on the site. You must cancel the cheap trial membership within 5 days, otherwise it turns into an expensive subscription of around 50 AUD per month.
As if one trial membership is not enough, the operator also wants you to buy one for CowboyChatCity.com. This one is even shorter and becomes more expensive. By using seemingly innocent trial memberships, FBM Online Connections Ltd tries to get the users’ money. Therefore, we consider CountryDatingAustralia.com to be a rip-off. In fact, the operator from London in the United Kingdom runs several similar scam dating sites.
