Once a user has registered they tend to receive many messages very quickly. In order to read these messages they have to buy credits to view them and respond. This would be fine if it were a real person looking for love like they are. However, what the user doesn’t know is that their chat partner is not a real person but an employee of the company. Sometimes, it ends up being just a bot!
These employees (or bots) are only there to entice the user into a long and endless chats in order to get more money from them. It’s easy to buy more credits, in order to keep sending messages, if you don’t know that it’s a fake conversation. The employees do not identify themselves as a fictitious person, and many times their profile does not mention this either.
How do we know this for sure? By checking the terms and conditions. It clearly states that
“An CUPID EPD PROGRAM / ONLINE REGENT may be a digital actor, an avatar or a synthespian (e.g. a computer generated "person" or "character"). CUPID EPD PROGRAM / ONLINE REGENT may be employed by freehookups.com or a third party to enhance Your online experience.

The operator of FreeHookups.com looks to be purposely hidden. How shady is that? But we do know they are located in Limassol, Cyprus.
These are enough signs for us to know that this a rip-off and an untrustworthy company.
