The online dating portal Hookups-Finder.com offers free registration. That is the only information that we found on the landing page. On the landing page, we only see the screen for registration. Also, we see the links to the legal information. Now, that is not a good sign. In general, the more transparent a website is, the better and safer it is. Here, that is not given at all. Anyway, the process of registration is done in a few minutes. Then, a profile is created, and a new member can find matches. It seems that this is a casual dating platform.
This site is not reliable
Hookups-Finder.com does not offer much information. On the landing page, we only see the screen for registration. Also, we know that the registration is free. In general, there is little detail to work with. In our experience, the more details a dating portal offers before registration, the better. Here, we can only point out that this site offers free registration. In the end, we had to do extensive research on the internet which did not end well for this site. This website has a terrible reputation. Former users mention a cheeky rip-off.
The profiles are fake and moderated. Their purpose is to entertain users. That is how the operator of the site describes the service of the site. As we see it, the purpose of those fake profiles is to increase the income of the operator. After the registration, costs will occur for a premium-membership. So, that makes the one and only piece of information on the landing page a misleading detail. Registration is free, but not the use of the site. Here, the user will pay to chat with fake profiles. Also, the membership appears to be a subscription rip-off.
The following is stated in the terms and conditions
Artificial intelligence (“AI") can be used to expand the number of actual activities of the website. By using our web-site you agree to the resulting risk of impersonation.
Fake profiles moderated by bots
In the legal information, we found out that the fictional profiles are controlled by bots. Those bots will stimulate chats with users. To achieve that, they will take the first step in a conversation. During that, the bots will not send a notification about moderation. So, users do not know about a moderated chat which makes it a scam. Moreover, fictional profiles are not marked as fake either. By sending messages to new members, bots animate users to make a purchase. Here comes another cheeky trick by the operator.
On the internet, we found many reviews about a rip-off with a subscription trap. The premium-membership will extend automatically if the user does not terminate it in time. Well, that does not sound too difficult. But the operator makes the process of termination difficult. In the end, deadlines will be missed which will lead to an automatic renewal of the subscription. Besides the subscription trap, you will pay to chat with bots on this site. Former users note in their reviews that all profiles are fake.
