SwingersParadise.com.au targets open-minded people that wish to fulfill their group sex fantasies. There is not much useful information on the landing page about the services or the payment structure. They entice users into finding the hottest swinger parties or to organize them themselves. However, only the possibility of accessing chats, forum pages, photos, and videos is vaguely mentioned. The website is operated by NetFanPix LTD, a company based in the Isle of Man. We proceeded to read the terms and conditions before joining in. Unfortunately, many red flags were there.
The operator admitted that the site is merely meant for entertainment purposes, and they operate a fake chat scam full of fantasy profiles. This is a common strategy among online dating scam companies: creating automated profiles that reach out to unknowing members. With our basic membership, we only had the chance to preview some of these messages. It is useless, as it doesn’t allow you to read or send messages. Any physical contact with these so-called “staff profiles” is impossible. Thus, users may potentially sign up for a futile and expensive service that will likely be very difficult to cancel.
Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 01/09/2023)
We do not guarantee that all the profiles found in Search will belong to our users, as we reserve the right to create profiles which are maintained and managed by our employees (“Staff Profiles”). The purpose of these Staff Profiles is to ensure that our Services are operating properly by allowing us to test the Services, features and functionalities, and to research our Products and Services.
Tricky subscription rip-off
Very often, we discover that these companies write their terms and conditions in convoluted text that is hard to understand for the average user. As a consequence, people may unknowingly sign up for a “VIP” service with an extremely cumbersome cancellation process. It may take a very long time and lots of frustration before the member manages to quit this service. The company also takes advantage of the fact that people prefer to keep quiet about joining these types of service, so few dare to confront them.
Considering the user experiences and numerous reviews we have written about this company, we certainly wouldn’t risk it. Members could also be tempted by special offers that work as the ultimate bait, so they may be trapped in an endless cycle of automatic renewals and messages that are never replied to. This will happen, despite of the company promising specialized support for VIP members. We implore our readers to stay away from this subscription rip-off.
