The online dating portal JustLo.com.au may appear like a good choice to find a date in Australia. On the landing page of the site, we see some good-looking profile pictures. We could assume that those profiles show real people. After some research, we know that this is not true. This website is a rip-off with a fake chat.
The profiles on the landing page and later in the members´ pool, are fake. A fake profile is managed by a fake operator. This fake operator will stimulate a new user into a chat. According to the information that we found this site is full of fake profiles. All profiles are fictitious, and it is not possible to achieve a date via this platform. On the internet we found a few reports about the portal and how the scam works. It all starts with misleading information on the landing page, given by the operator of the site.
Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 16/01/2021)
3.1 Moderators have been hired to participate in the chat room and, thereby, supervise and control its use… They may not be identifiable as moderators and may be using a fictitious profile/account.
No chance of a real date
The operator of the online dating portal is Steley Pty LTD which is located in Sydney, Australia. On the landing page we read about free registration. But after that costs will occur for “flirt coins” which are needed to send messages. After the registration, the fake operator will get in touch with a new member. With erotic messages, they stimulate the user into a conversation. To reply to all those promising messages, the user will have to purchase “flirt coins” first.
Of course, a fake operator will not identify as a fictional person with whom a date in real-life is not possible. The user of the site gets tricked. Since a fake profile is also not marked as such, the user has no idea about the moderated chat. The fake chat is mentioned in the terms and conditions, which cannot be copied and pasted.
