Meet-N-Hook.com presents itself with an appealing landing page, which is full of interesting content, and inviting promises. The picture of a stunning girl serves as the background for the registration module, which consists of just a few mandatory fields. Signing up takes literally less than a minute. Often times, people refrain from using dating portals because they are worried about their privacy. To reassure them, Meet-N-Hook.com makes it clear that the safety and protection of any user’s data, is the number one priority of the platform.
To find out a bit more, we created a test profile, checked the internet for past users’ reviews, and carefully read the Terms and Conditions. It turns out that our initial scepticism has a solid foundation. Meet-N-Hook.com is not the safe and effective dating website that they pretend to be. Quite the opposite. It is nothing more than a fake chat scam. All you can get here is a purely virtual experience with fantasy profiles. Your chances of meeting someone in real life are virtually non-existent.
Excerpt from the GTC (as of 15/11/2022)
The Company operates system profiles (i.e. profiles connected to Accounts which have been created by the Company and which are either operated by contractors of the Company who impersonate the persons portrayed in such profiles or by a system designed to interact with users) and expressly reserves the right to chat with users through such system profiles in order to enhance the users’ entertainment experience. Physical contact with individuals behind such system profiles is strictly prohibited.
Who is hiding behind these profiles
Meet-N-Hook.com acknowledges that most of the profiles that you will interact with do not correspond to any real member. They are created by the company, and managed by either professional moderators that impersonate a fantasy character, or by a piece of software designed to replicate a human conversation. In either case, this is a rip-off, because there is no way to distinguish these accounts from genuine ones, that is, if there are any.
The purpose of this fake chat scam is to make you spend money on the platform. To reply to the enticing messages that you receive, you must purchase “credits.” At first, it looks like this is not a big issue because every credit costs just a few cents. But there is a catch. Every message that you send requires 40 credits, which equals roughly £1.50. The site’s operator, which is Take Two Digital LTD from Paphos, in Cyprus, is infamous for using this dirty trick on each one of their dating websites.
