Our investigation began with a simple online search and even before we created the free account on LocalHookUp.com we could already read the complaints and reports from hundreds of other users who fell into the claws of this fraudulent and so-called dating service. In this article we will review LocalHookUp.com and we hope our findings can help prevent other people from getting scammed and ripped off. So, continue reading.
LocalHookUp.com is not a free dating service
Although LocalHookUp.com claims to be 100% free – this is far from the truth. You should be extremely cautious around an online dating site that asks for your credit card information, even though it builds its reputation as a free-of-charge dating service. Here is how much LocalHookUp.com will be charging your credit card monthly:
- $49.95 for a monthly subscription (automatically recurring)
- $39.61 for a monthly subscription to VibeVideo.com (automatically recurring)
- $28.87 for a monthly subscription to VideoErotic.com (automatically recurring)
What are you paying for?
If you think that you are getting valuable services for your money and that you can find a real date or meet a genuine person on this site, unfortunately that may not be the case. Here is why.
1) Computer-Automated Messages
Shortly after you sign up and create your “free” profile, you will start getting messages from women who want to communicate with you. We did set up a profile on LocalHookUp.com and started getting messages from female members even though our profile was still empty (we didn’t even have a single picture). Now, who would like to contact us when they don’t even know how we look? The messages raised our suspicions that all communications on this site were actually done by computer software and not by real site members. We found proof for our suspicions on LocalHookUp.com Terms and Conditions page.
2) Fabricated Member’s Dating Profiles
First we concluded that the email and chat messages were fake and computer-automated. So we continued our investigation only to find out that the ladies sending you those messages are also NOT real. In fact, almost all women on LocalHookUp.com are fabricated dating profiles, created by the site to make it look like there are many women you can meet. You can recognize them by the “LS” logo they are all labeled with, which stands for “Love Stars” – as they are called.
