The dating site IrishHookups.com offers free membership. But free members can only use limited functions. Chatting with other members is expensive. This is not always bad, and many reliable companies charge for the use of their dating sites. But on IrishHookups.com, users will only waste their money. The profiles on this website are fictitious. They have been created by fake chat operators and are only for “entertainment”. Real dates with these profiles are not possible. Therefore, we consider the platform to be a rip-off.
The fake chat scam
It was not difficult to find out that most profiles on this platform are fake. The operator, Notify Direct Marketing BV, mentions this in the terms and conditions. Even on the landing page, we can read about these fake profiles. In the footer of the page, it is written that the site is designed for entertainment and pleasure only. The operator mentions that the site contains fictitious profiles and that physical contact with these profiles is not possible.
Although we appreciate that the operator admits this fact, we believe that this is a fake chat scam. Most users may not read the fine print. We have found many reviews on the internet complaining about this scam. The operator has a terrible reputation, as they use the same fraud on all their platforms.
In the terms and conditions, we found evidence of fake profiles
IrishHookups.com has the goal of allowing users to flirt. IrishHookups.com is the platform for users to chat with fictive profiles. The website, service and content are being provided for entertainment purposes only and are not intended to be used for establishing meetings with other users. Profiles marked with a heart icon are fictive profiles with which physical contact is not possible.
The fake chat operators will entice new users into a conversation. But sending messages here is expensive. One message costs up to 1.6 Euro. Therefore, a conversation may end up costing a small fortune. Even worse, all conversations here will be useless, as users will never find a real date on this platform. Luckily, all payments here are non-recurring. Therefore, the platform cannot be considered a subscription rip-off.
