The landing page of SexGoldCoast.com looks quite promising. It displays lots of erotic pictures of sexy women who supposedly correspond to some of the latest subscribers. This would be just a small sample of the thousands of interesting profiles a new member will be able to contact after signing up. All these girls are looking for no-strings-attached sex encounters. At first sight, SexGoldCoast.com seems the ideal place for people who come from Gold Coast and are looking for sex buddies.
As always, we created a test profile, took an in-depth look at the terms and conditions and searched the internet for accounts of past users’ first-hand experiences. It transpired that SexGoldCoast.com is in reality very different to how it looks on the surface. This portal is part of a huge network run by Online Media Solutions BV, a company based in ’s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands. Thanks to countless negative reviews it receives on a regular basis, this operator has a shady reputation online. All its dating platforms are a scam with fake chat.
Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 02/09/2023)
This service uses self-created entertainment profiles, these profiles are moderated and therefore no physical agreements are possible.
Just virtual entertainment
Within a few minutes of our registration, our mailbox was already full of hot messages from attractive women. This is highly suspicious as our profile doesn’t even contain a picture. The only reasonable conclusion is that all these messages are fake. They are generated by fictitious profiles created by the company to encourage members to buy credits. SexGoldCoast.com offers free registration in its advertising, but this doesn’t mean everything on this website is free too.
Users have to pay separately for every message they send by using 50 credits, which equals roughly AUD 1.80. This is a rip-off as members are led to think they are talking to genuine people whereas they are in fact chatting with fake chat operators whose job is to keep a conversation going for as long as possible.
