The homepage of DownUnderFlirts.com makes it seem like a great portal for meeting new people and finding local dates with attractive singles. Sadly, this is not the case. In our experience on the website, we discovered that it is a fake chat scam. The purpose of the website is misleading. It is entirely full of fictional profiles, and it costs money to send messages. The operator of this website is Gate Switch Development BV, based in Middelburg, in The Netherlands.
Chatting is expensive
Most users would assume that this website is free to use, based on the information on the homepage. Though it is free to sign up, sending messages requires the purchase of an expensive virtual currency. Users must spend this currency, called ‘credits,’ on each message that they want to send. This could add up quite quickly, in a short amount of time. Our review found this website to be purely an entertainment service. Nothing will result in real dates. Therefore, we conclude that this site is a rip-off and a scam.
Not only does the website mislead users about the cost of using its features, but it is also misleading about its true purpose. Most users may assume that DownUnderFlirts.com is a dating portal. On the homepage, it clearly claims that users can connect with local singles. But it is really an entertainment service. The Terms and Conditions reveal that all the profiles on this website are fake and run by fake chat operators. This is a scam, since most people will think that they are chatting with someone genuine.
The Terms of Service explain that the fake profiles are marked by a heart icon. However, if users do not read the terms, they will have no idea that these fake profiles exist, never mind how to spot them. So, members may believe that they could meet these attractive, fictional profiles. Therefore, they end up spending large amounts of money to chat with them. This is a rip-off and a scam.
