At first sight, it does not seem that there is anything wrong with FindMeAHookup.com. This dating site makes a good first impression with the well-designed landing page. If you read through all of which is shown here, you also find out that the operator offers a VIP membership which grants certain benefits. But we find out later that you cannot even find a hookup without this paid membership. Furthermore, employees of the operating company try to manipulate you in the chat.
Not all the profiles in the members’ area are real, many of them are fake. Fake chat scams often work with bots which send computer-generated messages to advertise the paid messaging features. In this case, these profiles are controlled by company employees, so-called fake chat operators. We know that because we took a close look at the terms and conditions.
This is what we found in the terms and conditions
From time to time, the Company employees (or employees of its parent or affiliated companies) may create test dating profiles for the purpose of checking and testing the functionality of our Website and Service to improve the quality and user experience for its Users.
A different kind of entertainment
These “test dating profiles” are not only used to check the functionality of the site. They used to engage in conversations with the users without raising any suspicion. Since the company employees only do their job and do not intend to meet any user in real life, all of this seems counterproductive. To unlock the chat, you must purchase a VIP membership first. This also explains the use of moderated fake profiles. The company employees make chatting on FindMeAHookup.com as exciting as possible to advertise the VIP membership.
Who is responsible for this rip-off
The company in charge of FindMeAHookup.com is Augustine Ltd, who are based in Douglas on the Isle of Man. The operator has left no traces in the form of user reviews on the internet. However, from experience we know that this is a hotspot for operators of scam dating sites. Nevertheless, this site does not seem to be a subscription rip-off, because the VIP membership can be cancelled at any time.
