Registration on Jamble.co.za is free, and this site promotes easy dating through its service. It is worth noting that the company that operates it, Bopelo also provides two other dating sites. One targets the Christian community in South Africa, and another, which is more generalist. As usual, during our review, we put the site through a thorough test to determine whether it is worth subscribing to. Also, to see if the promise, that we will meet “a lot of open-minded people,” is mere misleading window dressing.
The landing page of Jamble.co.za shows some positive user experiences. While these testimonials sound promising, they could easily have been made up. On the other hand, we give more credit to the feedback from former users, who claim that the site is safe to use, and that it hides no scam. As we see it, you do not have to fear any rip-off on Jamble.co.za.
Safe dating in South Africa
Our close reading of the Terms and Conditions did not reveal anything suspicious. Similarly, the online comments we found did not mention any subscription scam or fake chat rip-off. The stories are mostly positive, which is supported by our own experience. It is quite clear that this site is being transparent. Here is an example. Using the service requires a daily contribution of R1.50, or €0.85. But this subscription can be easily cancelled at any time by simply sending an SMS message. When you know how scam sites can make the cancellation process outrageously complicated, these differing practices are reassuring.
Another positive point in favour of Jamble.co.za’s probity, is that registration is only possible, if you have a valid South African telephone number. This not only ensures a certain homogeneity to the community, who use the site, but it is also an easy way to hunt down fake profiles and ensures that members are real people.
