Pricing scam?

I had decided to join this site, but the signup process made me feel very hesitant about this site and am now hesitant to join.

On the first page where you enter your email and username, the price is clearly stated: 30 days recurring - Charge: 29.90 USD

Clicking the checkoutbutton takes you to the next page. Here the charge is instead stated to be 29.90 Euro.

When selecting US currrency, the actual charge has increased to 38.49 USD!

This is obviously not the same amount of money as the 29.90 USD clearly advertised!

A site trying to scam its customers during signup is a clear warning sign for me!

The only clear think is that the website use regional price (like 70% of adult website). The price change a bit according to the location of the user who is go in to pay. The funny think is that you could have open a support ticket and may get a partial refund, instead then write about scam. I'll ask to add a note in the join page about that *the price can change according to location of the purchaser*. Anyway, in the payment page (the page after the join) the price is wrote according to the location of purchas and you read the amount of money are you going to be billed. Its cear that when u did the purchase you did not check in the second page how much you get billed, and now you talk about scam because in the statement of your credit card you got a different charge then you supposed. You could simply admit you did a purchase without to pay attention and ask partial refund.

Dear Freax Media Group,

I dont find it funny at all. Contrary to what your reply claims, I DID pay close attentioin and THEREFORE aborted, never joined and wrote this comment about your scam.

Advertising the price 29 usd but actually charging 48 usd (= 29 euro) do seem like a scam. especially since you admit there was no information about "regional pricing".

I refuse to be discrimated by your "regional pricing" policy. There is no reason for me to pay anything but a correct currency conversion of the advertised 29 usd.

You are not discriminate, you are just from Europe. There is a reason why its like that and Im not going to quibble about that here, but if you want to know the same DVD in usa cost 10 usd, in Europe 10 euro. Also TV, electronic and many other stuff are cheaper in USA then in Europe.
Anyway, I added in the join page a note about to check the payment page (next page, after the join page) because the price can may be change according to country and currency of the user. I will add it also to our other websites.

Its a clear case of discrimination: you clearly admit to charge different prices for the same membership, based on location, and your attempt of denial doesnt help your credibility (or whats left of it, thanks to Pat362s contribution on your past).

Regional pricing for porn sites are among the worst exuses ever for overcharging customers.

Based on your business decisions and replies posted here I definitely stay away for your sites.

There is no excuse to regional pricing!

I did not denial to use regional prices (I dont understand the point of your message, in the first part you write that I admit to use regional price, then that I denial it... )

I dont really understand the point of this conversation. Is stupid and obtuse. Its better of course to spend time to talk about regional price then consider contents and updates...
Buy a car or anything else and you will see the price change from country to country. This is often done also in porn. Whats the problem? I update the join page with enough information about the price changing according to the location already long time. If you think is too expensive no one push you to join.

Discrimination: "the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex."

To tell that I discriminate users is really a bullshit, a really big one. If you feel yourself discriminated this is anyway not the place for argue. There is for example the *European Court of Human Rights*, go there and sue me together with all the producers of cars, bikes etc.

No one is discriminated, specially in porn. There are different marketing strategy, not anyone can be happy, but write about discrimination doesnt have any sense.

About my brawl with Pat, the main topic was a bit different and if you take a look to the updates of last months I kept the updates schedule I promised. There are tons of new contents and new websites and enough preview for take a deep breath of what I propose.

Due to your initial business decision to advsertise the membership fee in us dollar but actually try to charge me another price in euro instead, you lost me as a customer at that very point when I aborted the join process.

That was neither honest nor correct.

What you call "regional pricing" is one of the most disgusting business concepts among adult content providers on the web. There is no excuse for trying to charge me a higher member fee on a global market based on geographical location.

This, together with your insulting attitude and incorrect assumptions shown in your replies makes it clear you should be avoided.
