GoHookup.com is part of a network of dating sites run by the Estonian operator, Hazhtag Media Ou. Therefore, this site is also part of a big scam. The operator uses the same kind of fake chat scams on all their platforms. This site is no exception.
Fake chat operators enhance the users’ experience
During our review, we found enough evidence to call this site a rip-off. Apart from our own experience while using the platform, we found written evidence of the fake chat scam in the terms and conditions. The operator admits that the website uses support staff to monitor and moderate the chat system. This leads to chat dialogues and conversations with the users.
So, the company employs fake chat operators. They will interact with the users, to attract them to participate in expensive and meaningless chats. Furthermore, the operator mentions that they may use these fictitious profiles, at their discretion, to communicate with the users. Although the excuse for that is to enhance the users’ experience. This sounds like a lame excuse. The operator only wants users to spend as much money as possible.
The following excerpt is from the terms and conditions
We may use system profiles at our discretion to communicate with users to enhance our users' entertainment experience.
Once the users decide to participate in one of these chats initiated by the fake profiles, they will discover that must pay for each message they send. Prices are expensive, but this is not the worst thing. The real problem is, even if they spend a lot of money, they will never be able to find a real date on this platform. Luckily, the payments are based on “credits” and users do not need a subscription. So, we are sure that this site is not a subscription rip-off.
