Overview

No dating niche is out of the reach of scammers. You might think since GrannieHookups.com is a site for older people it might include less scams and this is far from the truth.

Free Lifetime Memberships Are Not Free

One of the biggest biggest scams of this site is that they secretly and deceptively upgrade you to three other membership sites without your consent. When you upgrade to a premium gold account you are automatically enrolled into three other sites like we just mentioned. The sites that you get charges from include VibeVideo.com $39.61 a month, as well as VideoErotic.com at $28.87 per month. On top of that you are also included into a monthly subscription to a website called TeenWranglers.com at a cost of $45 per month (see evidence below). This is all on top of the actual premium gold account that you purchase if you decided to upgrade!

Upgrading without your consent

Automated Chat Messages

Once logged into the members area of GrannieHookups.com we started receiving instantaneous chat messages. Within seconds messages were appearing from attractive looking older women. We have done many reviews and we know for a fact that all these chat messages are completely automated. In the chat messages they can even make it appear as if the girl is located in your city because they use IP geographical location software to identify your location and with that information they make it appear as if the female is located in whatever city you are located in. This makes the chat messages seem much more legitimate to unsuspecting people. The con here is that once you try to reply back to any of the communications in the chat messages you are asked to upgrade. They say and we quote "to communicate with other members you have to upgrade your membership click here" (see evidence below circled in red). There is no point in upgrading since the girl contacting you is not even real, its a computer system that can send and reply to any chat messages.

Automated Webcam Chat Messages

Another popular con is the use of pre recorded videos that appear to be live. These videos are not legitimate and make it appear as if local women are actually interacting with you and stripping live while they are chatting with you. This is all a scam and used once again to trick you into upgrading. If you try to reply back to the girl in the fake webcam video you are asked to "upgrade to communicate with other members" (see evidence below).

Emails

And of course all the emails sent to people on the site are completely fake as well. If you try to respond back you any emails you receive there is a statement that says "to read this email you will need to upgrade your membership" (see evidence below). There are very few real girls on the site, what you're looking at is one big scam.

Emails

The bottom line here is it all types of communication and notifications that we received from this website are completely fake. All the infamous ages are phony all the video chat messages are fake. All emails you receive are completely automated and also anyone who supposedly has "viewed your profile" is completely fake as well. This site has gone to the extreme and hired computer programmers to create software programs that mimic real people. It's hard for you to identify who is real and who is not unless you have experience fighting and dissecting these dating scams.

What Are "Love Stars"?

Every piece of communication we received and every profile we viewed had the words "Love Stars" on it. Digging into the terms and conditions of the site we have uncovered that "Love Stars" is the terminology this site uses for the fictitious profiles and the whole system built around it. "Love Stars" includes all the fictitious emails, webcams, text messages and fictitious emails sent to its members. This is all under the umbrella of the "Love Stars" terminology that is discussed in detail directly on the websites terms and conditions page. We have included the most important part of the Terms and Conditions page for you to review and read below. This was taken directly off of the website. This is irrefutable evidence that this site is involved in defrauding and scamming people.

In this particular investigation FreeFuckBuddyDating.com is redirecting people over to a scam dating site that we have to expose in the past called GrannieHookups.com. […]
