CrossdresserAustralia.com is one of many sites run by Ambiance Ltd. This is an operator with a bad reputation. They are well known for the tricks that they use to rip-off customers. This operator uses different kinds of scams. On this platform, we found a subscription rip-off as well as a fake chat scam.
Creating fake profiles
In the terms and conditions, we found out that employees of the company may create, from time to time, fictitious profiles to test the functionality of the site and to improve the users’ experience. But this is not true, and our experience is that these profiles just try to stimulate new users to pay for a membership. This fake chat scam is one of the most common tricks used by this operator. But this company also has another scam waiting for those customers who decide to subscribe to this platform.
The following excerpt is from the terms and conditions
From time to time, the Company employees (or employees of its parent or affiliated companies) may create test dating profiles for the purpose of checking and testing the functionality of our Website and Service to improve the quality and user experience for its Users.
The second and even more dangerous scam that we found, is a subscription rip-off. This scam can cost the user a lot of money. The scam is simple but effective. The operator offers a short and cheap trial membership at a discounted price. But this membership will renew automatically and become an expensive monthly membership. Although the operator mentions that terminating the trial membership is possible anytime, this seems to be difficult. Those who do not cancel on time will end up paying a lot for a useless membership that they never wanted.
We did not find any written evidence about this subscription rip-off in the terms and conditions, as the operator insists that terminating the subscription is easy and quick. But on the internet, we found a good number of reviews from former users saying exactly the opposite. They complain that their attempts to cancel their subscriptions were delayed or ignored and they were caught up in a subscription trap.
