There is a photo of a girl sitting in a wheelchair on the front page of DisabilityDating.com.au. This site was not only made for physically but also mentally disabled people in Australia. We can also see a selection of top members before signing up. For some reason, they come from all over the world. While having an international member base is something worth bragging about, this seems rather odd for an Australian dating site. Many of the other members are fake anyway. They play a part in a subscription scam.
DisabilityDating.com.au is not a popular dating site, which is why user reviews are nowhere to be found. However, the network that this site belongs to is known to many people. The Dating Factory is known for its scam dating sites, which are filled with fake profiles. The company in charge of this network is Tyche Technologies AG from Zug in Switzerland.
Are the complaints about fake profiles legit
While reading the negative reviews about the network, we notice that most users suspect fake profiles in the members’ area. After signing up, you start receiving messages immediately. You need a paid subscription to read and answer them. This trick is common on scam dating sites. Fake profiles are behind those messages. They are either bots or controlled by fake chat operators. If you receive many messages as a user, paying money to unlock the chat does not seem too bad. However, we found a statement that indicates the existence of fictive profiles in the terms and conditions.
Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 21/07/2021)
By using this service you accept that any member profiles, messages and communication may not be genuine and the service is for entertainment purposes only. This is further detailed under section 3.17.
Is DisabilityDating.com.au a subscription rip-off
We also deem this site to be a subscription rip-off. You must submit a cancellation to stop the subscription from renewing, which is nothing unusual. But in this case, the operator makes cancelling especially difficult and seems to charge some users too much money.
