Read The Fine Print Before You Give Up Your Credit Card Info!
As a rule of thumb if a dating site asks for your credit card information to verify you are over 18 then you should probably run from that site. This website does just that, they ask for your credit card to verify you are of legal age. But this is not the real reason they want your credit card information. They want your credit card information so they can charge it to 2 different websites one is XXXPornCloud.com at $39.72 per month and on top of that you also get bill $39.95 a month to a platinum VIP membership to HookupCloud.com. Most people have their heads in the sand and are easily fooled. This is how this dating site is able to scam millions of dollars every year from men who are not paying attention to what is directly in front of them. We have included evidence below that shows the various charges that you receive circled in red.
Fake Women aka "Online Legate"
Many of the profiles on the dating service that have images that have been stolen from amateur porn sites, web cam sites and other sources off of the web. We use reverse image software that is able to identify the exact location where's any image is hosted on the internet. This helps to identify if images are being used on other sites and compare them to dating profile images found on HookupCloud.com. We have included just two profiles with images found on other sites.The specific links where you can find those exact images on other sites are listed below.
You can find this exact same image here (http://tcdn03.yobt.com/model/e6/21136/30952_brittany-sexton.jpg). She is a porn star and not a real member of HookupCloud.com. The profile found on HookupCloud.com is completely fake.
This girl is not a real member of HookupCloud.com. Her images have been stolen and then used to create a fake profile. This exact same image can be found on numerous web cam sites that are listed below:
HookupCloud.com actually admits to creating fake dating profile but they call them "Online Legates" or computer generated people . Unfortunately it's impossible to identify which dating profiles are fake unless you use some sort of reverse image software such as the one we have been using to identify fictitious profiles. This leads to a real problem and basically there's no trust with this site. If this site actually admits to creating fictitious profile, then how can we be sure any profiles on the site are legitimate? A dating site is a place where you go to meet women but if the dating site itself admits to creating fake profile, then there is absolutely no reason in becoming a member.
This page clearly details what an "Online Legate" is. They state the following:
- ONLINE LEGATE: HOOKUPCLOUD UTILIZES VIRTUAL PROFILES THAT DO NOT CORRESPOND TO ACTUAL MEMBERS:
- An ONLINE LEGATE may be a digital actor, an avatar or a synthespian (e.g. a computer generated "person" or "character").
- You acknowledge that You understand that some of the profiles and Members displayed on them are not actual members of the site.
- You fully understand, acknowledge, and agree that any response or exchange between the ONLINE LEGATE and You is solely for entertainment purposes, and will not result in an physical meeting between the ONLINE LEGATE and You.
- By accepting these Terms you further acknowledge and agree that any information or pictures displayed to you via an ONLINE LEGATE profile does not relate to an actual person but has been included for the above mentioned purposes.
Fake Emails From Women Who Aren't Members
Something else to be aware of is that a large portion of the email messages you receive on this site are completely fake. This is part of the "Online Legate" program. The fake emails are used to trick free members into trying to reply back to the women sending you the emails. When you do try to reply back you are asked to upgrade to a paid membership and supply them with your credit card information at which time you are billed to 2 different sites that we mentioned above. Any emails are sent automatically with no actual women sending you those emails. Using sophisticated computer software programs the website can make it appear as if you are receiving legitimate email from real girls, when the truth is the complete opposite.
The following text was taken from their site where they clearly admit to using fake girls to send emails to members.
- Additionally by accepting these Terms, you understand, acknowledge, and agree that, the ONLINE LEGATE may contact both free Members and paid Subscribers via text based communication either within the site and/or via email notifications.
They Pay People To Pretend To Like You
This website goes as far as employing people to pretend they are actual members of the site. This means they are actually paid to pretend they are female members that are looking to hookup with men, when the truth once again is the complete opposite. This is also discussed on their web site and you can find that information right here on this link. Once again they admit to this, and here is the sentence that proves it.
- ONLINE LEGATE may be employed by hookupcloud.com or a third party to enhance Your online experience.
