CityHookupSex.com makes a good first impression. The landing page shows some erotic content. Moreover, free registration is offered for women and men. The process of creating a profile is simple and completed in a few minutes. Afterwards, members can chat and find a match for a date. We assume matchmaking is possible here. On the homepage, we read about meeting interesting people.
But real dates are not actually mentioned. We also found a notification about so-called computer-generated virtual profiles. Such profiles have nothing good about them. We have experience of other dating sites that use these too. The operator of the site is Natural Motions LTD, which is based in St Peter Port, Guernsey.
This website is a fake chat
The online dating portal CityHookupSex.com advertises with free registration. On the landing page, we read about meeting local women. But we conducted some research. Former users complain about fake profiles. The chances of meeting someone in real life are very low to zero. The website also admits to using so-called computer-generated virtual profiles. These are fictitious profiles created by the operator. Bots control these fake profiles, which show fictitious people. It is of course not possible to meet a fictitious person in real life. This online dating portal is nothing but a cheeky fake chat.
Furthermore, the goal of moderation is not the entertainment of users. We found a note about this ostensible purpose. The actual purpose is in fact completely different. Bots manage these profiles to encourage new members to chat. According to reviews on the internet, this will start right after registration. A new member will then receive a large number of messages in just a short time. These messages are generated automatically and not sent manually by real members. The goal is to increase the income of the operator. A user has to pay to use the website.
Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 05/09/2023)
5.1 Notwithstanding the foregoing, by and throughout your use, access and interactions to and with the Services and related content, You may interact with content generated by, or with the assistance of, automated online accounts (“Bots” or “Automated Profiles”), where none – or substantially none – of the actions and posts of that Automated Profile are the result of, or arise in connection with, a natural person’s profile or otherwise User Content.
This website has a bad reputation
If a user wants to chat, premium membership is needed. Costs will ensue right after registration. To read and send messages, users will have to pay. The premium membership subscription will extend automatically if the user does not terminate it proactively in time. In principle, this is not a problem. Here it is used as a trap. The operator of the site makes termination difficult. Ultimately, the deadline for termination will be missed again and again. The operator of the website is well known for this kind of scam.
On the internet, we found reviews of the site. The portal has a bad reputation, which is good enough reason to skip it. Moreover, the operator of the platform has a bad image. Former users had bad experiences and complained about fake chat and a cheeky subscription trap. The chances of finding a match are very low. Some former users believe all profiles on the site are fictitious. The subscription is ultimately not worth spending your money on. The website is a waste of time and nothing but a rip-off.
