LesbiansAustralia.com.au appears to be the perfect website for finding a date for women that love women. However, Augustine Ltd, based on the Isle of Man, has created another subscription rip-off for this site. This company is an old acquaintance of ours, for they manage a significant number of networks with an online dating scam on their platforms. We can confirm that this is also the case for LesbiansAustralia.com.au. As soon as we logged in, we started receiving messages from fake chat operators, but we cannot read their messages unless we sign up for a paid subscription.
This is a very common strategy among these shady operators. Computer-generated profiles created by the company reach out to new members, by baiting them with alluring messages. Oblivious users who are enticed by these messages are tricked into becoming a VIP member. Unfortunately, no matter how many conversations you may have here, it will never lead to a real-life date. As the company admitted, the portal is created only as a form of entertainment. All forms of interactions should be taken with a grain of salt, as they are automated to fit your interests. No physical contact will be possible.
Cheeky subscription rip-off
You may think that signing up for a VIP membership is not that much of a big deal. You may want to take the risk if you think that you'll be able to tell apart the fake operators from the real ones. From our experience, this is not a good idea. For starters, the fictitious profiles are not labelled in any way, so it would be a risky chance to take. Furthermore, once you sign up for a paid membership, you will most likely discover that cancelling it is not as easy as you may think.
It is likely that it will be a nightmare to get your subscription cancelled. The company will likely hide behind convoluted language in the terms and conditions, and use some sort of legal loophole to their advantage. That is, if you manage to communicate with them at all. In any case, Augustine Ltd, based on the Isle of Man, has created yet another subscription rip-off, as the platform does not provide the service that users are looking for upon registration. It is a deceitful strategy, and we have written numerous reviews about them before.
The following text is excerpted from the Terms and Conditions
We do not guarantee that all the profiles found in Search will belong to our users, as we reserve the right to create profiles which are maintained and managed by our employees ("Staff Profiles"). The purpose of these Staff Profiles is to ensure that our Services are operating properly by allowing us to test the Services, features and functionalities, and to research our Products and Services.
Alluring fake chat
The illusion behind signing up for a chat scam like this one is that all the unexpected attention goes towards the new user. The strategy for our review is to create a profile that is very boring. It shouldn’t attract interest from anyone, but the response is often surprisingly overwhelming. Any user who does not have as much experience as we do may believe this attention is real. Especially after investing some time in creating an appealing profile, it would only be natural to become excited. This is the trap that leads people to sign up for a VIP membership.
