If you have been following DatingBusters.com for any length of time you know that our investigations are top notch. We are unbiased and we do everything we can to give you a very detailed analysis to keep you safe from deceptive dating services. For this investigation we registered on HookupSexy.com to uncover the truth. You can read our full undercover investigation below.
31 Computer Generated Instant Messages Designed To Trick You
Do you like interacting wish computers? HookupSexy.com is using computer software programming called "bots" which is an abbreviation for robots. Just like a robot in real life these computer bots are designed to do tasks that mimic real humans. These tasks include sending people computer-generated instant messages. These instant messages unfortunately are not used for your benefit but are used against you. They use these instant messages to make you believe that you are being contacted by female members of HookupSexy.com. This is all fictitious and a lie.
No human beings are instant messaging you. It's all a master plan to trick you into upgrading from your free account to a paid account. Dating sites such as HookupSexy enable you to create a free account but if you want to communicate with other members you need to have an upgraded paid account. This is why they use computer robot software programs to send you instant messages because if you want to reply to those instant messages you have to have an upgraded account. Of course unknown to you is the fact that the messages you're receiving are coming from robots and not real humans. You can take a look at the screenshot below showing the 31 computer-generated instant messages we have received thus far.

Automated Winks Designed To Make You Believe Real Girls Are Winking At You
Another screenshot we took is of the automatic "winks" that we are receiving. So far we have received "winks" from different women on the site. Unfortunately this is all phony. There is absolutely no legitimate female members sending us "winks". It's all a con job used to manipulate us into believing that a female member is sending us a "wink". When you try to respond back to those people once again you need to have an upgraded account. These are all little tricks used to get you to pay for a membership so the website can make a monthly profit off of you gullibility. Please take a look at the screen shot below showing the automated "winks" that we have received.

Fake Females Created By The Staff Of HookupSexy.com
We have already discussed the use of bots that this site uses to send you bogus instant messages and emails. On top of that they also build profile pages. These profile pages are completely phony. If you look at the profile pages they look real, they have a profile photograph and all types of personal information. Everything you would see in a regular profile you would see in a fictitious profile created by the site. The reason that they make fake profiles is that there aren't thousands of real female members on their dating site so they need to make up for this downfall. No one are going to join a dating site that has little to no real women on it. Making fake profiles is the way that this website combats this problem. And this can all be all be validated if you read the terms and conditions page where they confess that they create "Staff profiles'.
31 Automated Notifications (Fake Winks & Profile Views)
Below is another screenshot offering even more evidence. Circled in red you see 31 notifications. Notifications include people who have sent you "winks" and who has viewed your profile. Once again there are no female members actually viewing your profile. Computer software bots are used to give the impression that members are looking at your profile and sending you "winks". This is all a marketing gimmick used to get free members to upgrade.

Dating Profiles Taken From Other Sites Online To Make Fictitious Profiles
