The online dating portal HelloHotties.com gives a good impression when you get to the starting page. Everything looks sincere and makes a legit impression. But we know it is far from it. The site can be compared to a wolf in sheep's clothing. Behind the almost bourgeois facade is a rip-off by the operator, Together Networks Holdings Limited from the British Virgin Islands.
After the free and uncomplicated registration, the new member will be forwarded to the main area of the online dating portal. Here he can expect a tidy interface and a straightforward design. The site offers its members the usual features like messages, search functions, rooms, updates and personal settings.
The newcomer has no time to look around the site at all, as he is smothered by tons of messages. Some former members report receiving over 10 messages within the first five minutes. The whole thing is part of the rip-off because these messages come from moderators who hide behind fake profiles. They only have the goal of involving the members in extensive and expensive chats. Expensive because besides the free registration on this portal, everything else costs.
We can see hints that the website is using faked profiles in the terms and conditions
"We may, from time to time, create profiles which are created, maintained and managed by our employees ("Staff Profiles")."
On top of this scam, the website also sells subscription packages which have a monthly automatic renewal and a short trial time. People complain that it is tough to terminate the subscriptions, and that the customer support literally does not exist.
