SexAdelaide.com is a dating site aimed at singles living in Adelaide. Therefore, the landing page is full of personal ads and profile photos of Australian women. Much to the delight of the male visitors to the page, many of them are naked and good-looking. To tell the truth, it does not really matter where you live. The attractive female members are fake. Their profile information is made up, and you will not get to meet them in real life.
Their existence is essential for a rip-off. The final evidence proving that the other members are fake even comes from the operator. But you must scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the following statement.
Fake members who you cannot meet
“Entertainment” profiles sound less concerning than fake profiles, although there is no difference whatsoever. This fact is placed at the bottom of the page for a good reason: The users must remain clueless for the scam to work. A more detailed description of the entertainment profiles and what they do can be found in the terms and conditions.
Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 29/07/2021)
This site uses entertainment profiles, physical contact with these profiles is not possible.
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 […] This service uses self-created entertainment profiles, these profiles are moderated and therefore no physical agreements are possible.
Why is the existence of these profiles kept secret
It seems odd that some people would sign up on a dating site where you are mostly chatting with fake profiles. They only do so because the use of fake profiles is a well-kept secret. These profiles are controlled by company employees, so-called fake chat operators. As a user, you need virtual “credits” to be able to use the chat. In the shop, you can exchange your real money for credits. One message in the chat can cost up to 1.83 AUD.
The moderated fake profiles make sure you send as many messages as possible. Online Media Solutions BV is the operator of SexAdelaide.com. The company from ’s-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands seems to be rather new or unknown. At least, that is what the lack of user reviews indicates. This Dutch operator runs a few more scam dating sites on the internet.
