The landing page of MatureHub.co.uk shows dozens of members’ profiles. Honestly, we would not appreciate seeing our face displayed in the open like that, on a website named MatureHub.co.uk. Where do these profile pictures come from? There are obviously stolen, but God knows from where. However, we were able to find them, on several other scam sites, which are like this one. MatureHub.co.uk does not provide any other information about the service. However, the terms are very explicit about how the rip-off works.
While registering on the platform is free, users must buy “credits” to use the chat feature. Once they enter the members’ area, they start receiving enticing messages, from hot women, who are desperate to meet them. However, the rip-off works in such a way that any conversation is bound to be expensive, but mostly pointless. Meetings are not on the agenda. As for flirting, it is mainly all about robots.
Excerpt from the GTC (as of 06/12/2022)
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 MATUREHUB.CO.UK, 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.
While these communications may seem genuine, authentic, and personal, they may be broadcast simultaneously to a large number of persons and possess none of these qualities. While their contents may appear to be true, they may be quite false; while their contents may appear to sincere, they may be quite disingenuous.
In our experience with dating scam sites, we had never encountered such honesty in describing the scam. Index zone LTD, the operator from Coventry, in the UK, seems almost proud of it. They even add; “If we do it well, you may never be able to tell that we are doing it or know when it happens.” Honestly, this is quite frightening! Anyone with an IQ above 50, should be able to understand, quickly, that they are talking to a robot. This is still true today, although we do see that many people fall for it. But what about tomorrow?
This site uses chatbots to engage with users, by sending them automatic computer-generated messages. If they take the bait, human moderators will then take over the chat, to lure them into spending more money on the paid chat. They promise an upcoming date, which obviously never happens. We have yet to understand where the “fun” is in all this. Clearly, the people on the other side of the screen, do not look anything like their profile picture. Not only is it impossible to experience a genuine flirt, but dating is also excluded, from the outset.
