The portal claims to be the only completely free hook up site online and the member will have sex right away. A dream comes true but is this website legit or are all the commitments just empty promises?
The landing page is designed simply, and the registration process is easy to manage. Some previews of members are animating the visitors to enrol even faster. After the sign-up, we land on the main page. Not much is left from the clean and modern starting page. There are basic menu bars and old looking interfaces. Not what you expected from a portal which claims to be professionally designed.
Look at the fine print
Just minutes after the new member arrives at the main area, he will be confronted with a loud and very annoying video of a sexy female explaining the enormous benefits of upgrading the account. We become even more suspicious when we are asked to give our credit card information for a free account. Why should someone do this?
We have a look at the fine print, and here you go:
"There is absolutely no cost for signing up for free access membership, which includes one day of free access then upgrades to platinum vip membership for $39.95 monthly until cancelled."
If we translate this, it means you have one day free, and then they charge you almost $40.00 per month. Unfortunately, that is not a joke, it is a big scam. The new member will also receive tons of messages, texts, and emails with invite you to chat. But when you try to have a look at the profiles, or you want to reply; you need, what a surprise! to upgrade your basic membership. We assume this to be a moderated chat with faked profiles and start a reverse image search. Again we receive clear evidence that the FreeHookUps.com is fraudulent.
We take a more in-depth look into the terms and conditions
"HOOKUP ASSISTANT may be a digital actor, an avatar or a synthespian (e.g. a computer generated "person" or "character"). HOOKUP ASSISTANTS may be employed by FreeHookUps.com or a third party to enhance your online experience. For example, an HOOKUP ASSISTANT may provide an electronic introduction to new or existing freehookups.com features or functionality, or discourage inappropriate behavior."
Now we can be 100% sure that they use faked profiles. The members’ pool is full of them and behind them are operators hiding, to lure people into “free” memberships. It is no surprise that the reviews, reports, and testimonies we see on the internet about the operator DCOC Support Inc. based in Cyprus are bad. The people complain about all this and as well the data leakage. The website is stealing your personal content.
