It is enjoyable to surf on the HookUpAds.com site. There is much to discover, and the numbers speak for themselves: 29 million potential dates, 49543 hookups happening, 18694 repeat hookups experienced, and 3564 new dating opportunities per day. The whole thing makes us very suspicious, and to us the guarantee to meet somebody is not truthful.
To create a profile, you only need to enter your gender, age, zip code and personal preference. Additional options are friends with benefits, dating, online fun and discreet romance dating.
After registration, you will be sent directly to the payment options page. With pop-ups and redirects, the operator tries to keep the Quad Strategy Ltd. member on the site until he/she reveals his/her credit card details. The new member will be offered different memberships, and the promise of free three-month membership if you are not successful in the first 30 days.
The whole site smells like a rip-off
Even if the site appears well built and seems to have a lot to offer, it is still nothing but a colossal rip-off. It already starts with the warning in the browser that the website HookUpAds.com is "Not secure". Another suspicion is that the Twitter account linked to the site has been defunct since 2011. This is strange with so many members. The biggest annoyance is the moderated chat and the significant number of moderators who hide behind fake profiles. Their sole purpose is to animate the members into lengthy and expensive conversations with flattery or dirty tricks.
The operator admits the use of these moderators also in their terms and conditions
