At first sight, NZBackpage.co.nz looks like a great choice for those who are looking for casual encounters and exciting sex dates. The portal advertises with free registration and promotes itself as the leading adult site in New Zealand. For this review, we decided to sign up and take a close look at the site’s features, its members, and the legal information. Reading the terms and conditions, we quickly found out that NZBackpage.co.nz is just a rip-off.
Extremely expensive and absolutely pointless
NZBackpage.co.nz is not free, only the registration is. To communicate with other members, users must first purchase so-called “credits”, which can then be used to pay for sending messages in the chat. Depending on which of the offered “credit”-bundles users decide to purchase, sending a chat message will cost between NZ$1.12 and NZ$1.97. As every single message must be paid for separately, having a proper conversation inevitably leads to tremendous costs.
Unfortunately, the pricey chat experience is nothing but a waste of time. The site is only filled with fake profiles created and managed by professional fake chat operators. In other words, this means that all “members” are fictional, and meeting them for an actual sex date is therefore simply impossible.
The following note can be found in the Terms and Conditions
We want to create with this Service a nice portal for men and women who want to enjoy a bit of fun and do not take dating too seriously, but see it more as a fun and fun form of entertainment. One of our objectives is to realize online interaction between you and others. This service uses self-created entertainment profiles, these profiles are moderated and therefore no physical agreements are possible.
From our experience, the employed fake chat operators, who hide behind the “entertainment profiles”, are trained to lure users into long conversations and extensive flirts. Their sole goal is to make users send as many chat messages as possible, for they must constantly buy more “credits”.
Unfortunately, many users are completely unaware that they are just being deceived and ripped-off. All information regarding the fake profiles can only be found in the fine-print and the lengthy terms and conditions, where it can easily be overlooked.
The dating service of NZBackpage.co.nz is Online Media Solutions BV, from BH’s-Herogenbosch, in the Netherlands. We have already published numerous reviews about this company and its other scam websites. To avoid losing a lot of money on entirely pointless chat conversations with fictitious people, you better stay away from all dating portals run by this operator.
