The online dating portal NSASouthAfrica.co.za advertises with many active members. Also, registration on this site is free. On the landing page we do not read about costs. But it turns out that costs will occur for a premium-membership. This is offered in form of a subscription.
In the terms and conditions, we found more details about the charges. Costs will occur for a subscription that will extend automatically if it is not terminated in time. An automatic renewal does not have to be bad. In this case, the deadline for termination is 24 hours before the end of the subscription. So, this site appears not to be a scam with a subscription trap.
But we read another note in the terms and conditions, which made us a little bit curious. According to the information from the operator, the website reserves the right to monitor private messages.
Here is the excerpt from the terms and conditions
“We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor any and all public and private postings and messages to ensure that they conform to the content guidelines and this Agreement, which are both subject to change from time to time. We also reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor any and all messages and chats that take place through the Site.”
This site has got a bad reputation
Besides the right to monitor private messages from user to user, there is much more to mention. On the internet, the operator of the site has got a bad reputation. Many people complain about high costs. They also complain about charges for things which had never been purchased.
Former customers describe the site as a fake chat scam. In the terms and conditions, the operator claims that it does not use fake profiles or chat bots. But former customers speak of a moderated chat and many of them shared the same experience.
The operator of the site is Infinite Connections Inc. which is located in Florida, USA. This company has got a poor reputation and many reports from former customers mention a scam. Also, this is not the only dating website run by the operator but just one out of many. Other sites managed by the same company have got a poor reputation as well.
