The landing page of HornyRoot.com lacks all the important information that an honest and reliable dating website should always provide. All we could see was the picture of an attractive young girl and the promise that the free registration will allow users to get unlimited access to the service. That is a lie. Just the first in a long list of many lies.
Setting up your account is indeed free of charge, but it is also completely useless. All users can do with a free basic membership is upload a picture and browse the members’ area. All communication tools are disabled. To unlock the chat feature, users need to purchase the so-called ‘credits’.
Outrageous costs for a fake chat service
Credits are digital currencies that allow users to access all the paid features, such as sending messages, virtual gifts, or pictures. Every message that users want to send will cost one credit. Depending on the package that users choose to buy, the price of a single credit slightly varies. On average, every message that is sent will cost roughly 1 AUD. New users are granted 1 free credit upon registering. Afterward, they will need to pay if they want to communicate with someone in the future.
Costs can add up very quickly on this scam of a dating site. That is not a scam in itself because genuine dating sites are generally quite pricey. It’s a scam since users are tricked into spending money to converse with fake profile users who use computer-generated profiles that were created by HornyRoot.com. Regardless of how much users are willing to pay, the chances of meeting someone in real life through this site are almost non-existent.
Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 05/09/2023)
In order to enhance your amusement experience, to stimulate you and others to use our Services more extensively, and to generally sprinkle some sparkle and excitement into the Services of HORNYROOT.COM, we may post fictitious profiles, generate or respond to communications by means of automated programs or scripts that simulate or attempt to simulate your intercommunication with another real human being (though none really exists and any dialog is generated by programming), and we may employ or contract for the paid services of real persons who may interact with you as part of their compensated employment.
We searched everywhere on the site, but we couldn’t find any legal information about the company responsible for this rip-off dating site. Every time we review a website whose operator is unknown; it turns out to be a scam. We recommend all our readers keep their distance from a platform that hides the name and the location of the company. Like most fake dating sites, the operator uses fake profiles to push people into spending money on meaningless conversations with fantasy characters.
