AdultHookups.com scams and cons review
For us, it was weird that this site was associated with so many other dating sites, some of which we have reviewed, and which are proven as complete frauds. Then, we found it weird that this site who claims to be “100% FREE” takes you to a page where you need to fill up a chart and provide your credit card info. So, we opened the AdultHookups.com Terms and Condition of Use to read carefully and found the proof for all our suspicions. We break down the facts in the text below.
1st Sign of Scam: The Credit Card Info
Although AdultHookups.com says it’s for age-verification purposes, they are actually asking for your credit card information so they can charge you. There is a little check box which is automatically checked for you, and which confirms your consent to be charged. If you haven’t seen it, that’s because we all tend to not bother and read the small letters. So, for your “NO COST LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP”, you are charged:
- $1.00 for a 2-day trial membership period to VideosZ.com
- $39.97 for every 1 month to VideosZ.com (automatically renewed after the 2 days trial and for every next month)
2nd Sign of Scam: Fabricated Profiles
AdultHookups.com fabricates women’s profiles and makes them look real by providing made-up personal information, interests, pictures, etc. The truth is, nothing on these profiles is real. They are a part of the “Online Emissaries” Service and are used to reinforce the other scamming tools AdultHookups.com uses to deceive you. Here is how it works:
a) Online Emissaries are used to fill up the site with gorgeous and provocative-looking women and make you believe that you can find someone here.
b) Automated computer messages are sent using these Online Emissaries profiles, so when you get a fake message it looks like a real person is trying to communicate with you.
PROOF OF SCAM: “AdultHookups.com UTILIZES VIRTUAL PROFILES THAT DO NOT CORRESPOND TO ACTUAL MEMBERS: An ONLINE EMISSARY may be a digital actor, an avatar or a synthespian (e.g. a computer generated “person” or “character”). You acknowledge that You understand that some of the profiles and Members displayed on them are not actual members of the site. ONLINE EMISSARIES are not associated with any other user of the site. By accepting these Terms you further acknowledge and agree that any information or pictures displayed to you via an ONLINE EMISSARIES profile does not relate to an actual person.”
3rd Sign of Scam: Employees of AdultHookups.com
It turns out that not only does AdultHookups.com create its own profiles; it also hires and pays employees to interact and flirt with you. The purpose is to keep you as a member of the site and continue charging their monthly fee until you realize this is all a cams and that you’ve been ripped off.
PROOF OF SCAM: “ONLINE EMISSARIES may be employed by adulthookups.com or a third party to enhance Your online experience. The ONLINE EMISSARY services can include the posting of information, pictures and/or communications directed to You. Such messages may take the form of any communication currently permitted on the Website.”
4th Sign of Scam: Computer-Sent Messages
AdultHookups.com uses the fictitious dating profiles they create to send you email and chat messages. Same as the dating profiles, all messages and communications are completely fake. It’s actually computer programs and software that sends you these automated messages, not women.
PROOF OF SCAM: “You understand, acknowledge, and agree that, the ONLINE EMISSARY may contact both free Members and paid Subscribers via text based communication either within the site and/or via email notifications. You appreciate and understand that any communications from the ONLINE EMISSARY may be sent to multiple Accounts at the same or similar time(s).”
5th Sign of Scam: Not a Legitimate Dating Site
PROOF OF SCAM: “You fully understand, acknowledge, and agree that any response or exchange between the ONLINE EMISSARY and You is solely for entertainment purposes, and will not result in an physical meeting between the ONLINE EMISSARY.”
