At first sight, SexSydney.net appears to be the ideal place to find singles from Sydney, who are looking for exciting sex dates and dirty encounters. The landing page is full of enticing profile pictures and the registration is free. As always, we search the internet for user reviews, success stories and complaints. We also carefully study the site’s terms and conditions. After some research, the portal turns out to be a rip-off with a fake chat.
Users must pay to send chat messages to other members. First, they must purchase so-called “credits”, which can then be exchanged for sending messages and pictures in the chat. Depending on the chosen “credit”-bundle, each sent message costs between 1.08 AUD and 1.83 AUD. At such high prices, even a relatively short flirt can already cause horrendous costs.
Unfortunately, the enormous costs are not the only issue here. We find out that the members’ area is full of fake profiles, which are created and managed by employed fake chat operators. Since these profiles are fictitious, they cannot be met in real life. Consequently, chatting with them is just a waste of time.
The following excerpt is from 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.
Users are not sufficiently informed about the fact that the member profiles are fake. They assume that each profile belongs to an actual person, with whom a date can be arranged. Therefore, they are willing to pay the high prices for the “credits”. From our experience, the skilled fake chat operators take advantage of that, and try to lure as many messages as possible out of each user.
The operator behind this cheeky scam is Online Media Solutions BV, from ‘s-Hertogenbosch, in the Netherlands. This company is already well known for many other rip-off dating websites and has received countless negative customer reviews online. So, we cannot recommend anyone to ever sign up on any of their websites.
