Details on HookUps.co.uk
The online dating website HookUps.co.uk looks good at first. The landing page show some information about the website and its offers. Plus we can read some articles about online dating and arranging online sex dates. It seems that the website is reputable. But of course we did our research as usual and found out that it is another website by Venntro Media Group Ltd.
The company is well-known on the internet as it runs a lot of dating websites and as far as we can see, you cannot recommend a single one of them. Many reasons speak against the operator and its huge dating website network that seem to be rip offs.
First of all the operator gets a lot of critics on the internet that the personal data protection of their users is leaking. We found a lot of reviews on the internet about the operator Venntro Media Group Ltd. The company collects all data on a central server and shares all profiles information on every single dating website on their network. That means if you create one profile on a single website by the operator, your profile will be shown on every other website as well. Even on those where you would never create a profile. The company is located in Slough, UK and gets much more critics than just leaking data protection.
Second it seems that the operator lures its customers on the website and into subscription traps.
In the terms and conditions we read that paid memberships will extend automatically which sounds like a rip off to us:
“Cancelling or terminating your contract with us does not automatically delete your profile although you will be prompted to do so during the cancellation or termination process. Deletion of your profile must be done separately through the Site or by contacting us.”
And third point is that with our research we also found some reviews which claimed that the website is also a fake chat scam. We checked the terms and conditions and found a hint that this complaint could be true. It is not mentioned that the website uses fake profiles or fake operators who act as a fictitious person. But the terms and conditions mention that: “The Site is an entertainment service.”
An online dating website is not just for entertainment purposes as usually the keyword entertainment stands for moderated chats. It this case it is not just a moderated chat, but a fake chat as the users do not know about any entertainment purpose on the website. The users assume that every profile is real and other users are looking for a date and not entertaining chats.
Conclusion from our HookUps.co.uk review
We found some very convincing hints that the online dating platform HookUps.co.uk is a fake chat and subscription trap. Additionally we read some reviews on the internet that point out the operator is not trustworthy at all as it has terrible leaking data protection of their customers. We do not recommend any website by Venntro Media Group Ltd.
