CasualHookup.com offers free registration and advertises with erotic content. The design of the landing page is modern and the general offer of the online dating platform sounds good. We read about the many active members and an open-minded community. Additionally, we saw some profile pictures on the homepage. We can assume that those images show actual members from the site. According to the information on the landing page, this website has thousands of users, but they are actually fictional profiles with the purpose of providing entertainment of its users.
This site is a fake chat scam
CasualHookup.com advertises interesting offers with some profiles, but the profiles on the landing page are fake and show fictional people. Also, the profiles in the members´ pool do not show actual members. This website contains fake chat features. We even found many reviews about this website being a scam on the internet. Computer-generated virtual profiles are used on this platform. Therefore, those are fake profiles which are controlled by bots. So, the chance to meet a real person is zero. However, the use of computer-generated virtual profiles is mentioned on the landing page.
We can conclude that this platform uses fake chat, but we are not sure if we can call it a rip-off because of that. We did some extensive research and checked this platform. The operator of the site explains the purpose of the computer-generated virtual profiles in the legal information. According to the terms and conditions, the goal of moderation is the entertainment of the users. By contrast, reviews on the internet claim that the actual goal is to scam users. The computer-generated virtual profiles will persuade new members to spend money on a subscription, which is a trap.
The following is stated in the terms and conditions
Notwithstanding the foregoing, by and throughout your use, access and interactions to and with the Services and related content, You may interact with content generated by, or with the assistance of, automated online accounts (“Bots” or “Automated Profiles”), where none – or substantially none – of the actions and posts of that Automated Profile are the result of, or arise in connection with, a natural person’s profile or otherwise User Content.
Do not fall for this scam
Right after the registration, a new member will receive many messages. Those messages come from the computer-generated virtual profiles. They will actively start a conversation, but they will not mention moderation. Also, the profiles are not clearly marked as fictional content. That brings us to the conclusion that this site is a scam with a fake chat system. Also, the computer-generated virtual profiles are used to lure users into a trap.
On the internet, we found a lot of negative reviews about the subscription trap. According to the experience of former users, a premium-membership is needed to read and send messages. The price for a normal subscription is quite high. However, a cheap trial membership is offered as well, but that actually a trap. The trial membership will extend to a normal premium-membership afterward. Based on the experiences of former users, the operator of the website makes the cancellation of a normal subscription difficult.
