The one thing that really catches our attention on the landing page is the registration form. It becomes clear that the operator wants us to create an account right away. Before we did so, we decided to look for user reviews on the internet. NZDatingInsider.co.nz turned out to be a dating site that nobody knows. It is hard to find the right person on a dating site that nobody uses. For some reason, it is surprisingly easy to find someone to chat with on here. The other members are fake and part of a subscription rip-off.
The VIP membership seems to go on forever
Before you can freely interact with others in the chat, you have to become a VIP member. VIP members have to pay for a subscription to maintain their membership. The basic membership is free, but comes with too many limitations. Only VIP members are allowed to read messages and chat with other members. If you miss the notification period of 14 days, the VIP membership will automatically renew for another term. What is even worse, is the fact that the operator often ignores cancellations, even those submitted in time.
The operator wants to make sure that the users feel the need to upgrade their membership in the first place. You can create any kind of profile on NZDatingInsider.co.nz, the result will always be the same: Your inbox is filling up within the first few minutes. “Fake chat” operators are behind this. They seduce the users in the chat.
Our previous experience with the operator
Previously, we already posted several reviews to share our experience with scam date sites by Date4Friend AG. The operator of NZDatingInsider.co.nz is located in Zug, Switzerland. They know how to effectively lure users into a subscription trap, just like the one here. The lack of user reviews on the internet lets us hope that not too many people have been ripped off so far.
