The online dating platform HousewivesAffairs.com gives a first good impression. The landing page, has written details about free registration and a display of profiles. At first, we assumed that those profiles were from actual members of the site. However, on the landing page, we found information pertaining to the fact that the site contains fictional profiles. We are not sure if this applies to all profiles. Anyway, this site advertises with casual dates and claims to be a solid dating service in Australia. If the landing page is legit, then this website is a promising choice.
Misleading advertisement on the landing page
HousewivesAffairs.com appears to be a solid online dating portal. But after some careful research, it seems that the only thing good about this website is its appearance. We found many negative reviews from former users who have an awful experience with the site. After checking out the legal information, it did not take long to find proof of a fake chat services and a subscription trap.
HousewivesAffairs.com admits that it uses computer-generated virtual profiles. Visitors of the portal can see this fact for themselves by reading from the webpage. That is the only positive part of our review. It does not explain the full scale of the fake chat or how the operator makes a profit. It is also impossible to tell which profiles are fake, because there is no label or text to reveal them.
Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 04/09/2023)
5.1. Notwithstanding the foregoing, by and throughout your use, access and interactions to and with the Services and related content, You may interact with content generated by, or with the assistance of, automated online accounts (“Bots” or “Automated Profiles”), where none – or substantially none – of the actions and posts of that Automated Profile are the result of, or arise in connection with, a natural person’s profile or otherwise User Content.
The subscription is a trap
After the registration, a new member will receive many messages from other profiles. To use the full service, users must purchase a premium-membership. A paid subscription is needed to read and send messages. In the end, users will need to pay in order to chat with fictional profiles. That is enough to call it a rip-off. Furthermore, the premium-membership is a cheeky trap. The operator of the website makes termination difficult. The paid membership will extend automatically if it is not cancelled in time. That makes it a scam as well.
We uncovered many negative reviews about this site from the internet. Former users were not happy with the service of this platform. They explain their bad experience in their reports. The fake chat system is mentioned a few times. However, this site uses bots instead of chat moderators. The subscription is a cheeky trap because the operator of the site declines or ignores terminations from users. This eventually leads to an automatic renewal of the subscription. The operator of the site is Safe Escape LTD, which is based in St. Pierre Du Bois, Guernsey.
