Details on DatingHookUp.co.uk
The online dating website DatingHookUp.co.uk offers registration and the landing page shows some good looking profile pictures. We spent a while on the landing page and read the terms and conditions. The more time we spent on the dating platform, the more hints we found that this is a scam.
The fake profiles look very fake to us. The people on the profile pictures look like professional models and on the bottom of the landing page we found a hint that they really are fake. The operator of the online dating website mentions on the landing page that the website uses fake profiles that show fictitious people. Those profiles are for entertainment of the users only and it is not possible to have any physical contact.
The information is written on the very bottom of the landing page. On top of the landing page the operator shows good looking profile pictures and advertises with the slogan that this is UK’s biggest hook-up dating portal. Since this is a contradiction we assumed that the operator advertised the wrong information.
The operator mentions fake chat in the terms and conditions:
5.3 Connect Media explicitly reserves the right to send conversations on the Website through proprietary profiles. These are fictional profiles that do not allow physical appointments.
The fake profiles show fictitious people that are not real and the profiles are operated by fake operators. The fake operators have the job to entice the users into conversations. The costumers do not know about fake chats and do not know that physical contact is impossible. In a nutshell, the users get tricked and scammed as the costumers have to pay a lot of money to have a conversation with another member.
The users get tricked by wrong information on the landing page but also by the fake operators as well. The fake operators do not identify themselves an entertainment profiles or a fictitious person and their fake profiles are not marked as an entertainment or fake profile.
The operator of the fake chat scam dating website DatingHookUp.co.uk is the Connect Media. This company is located in Eindhoven in the Netherlands and is well-known on the internet. DatingHookUp.co.uk is not the only rip off portal by the operator but just one of many. We found many negative reviews about the operator on the internet. The fake chats and fake profiles are mentioned in the terms and conditions but the operator uses a simple trick to hide this information. The terms and conditions are displayed as an image and not as text, which makes the search function on the browser useless.
