The online dating portal HookupDaters.com looks good at first sight. On the landing page, we read about free registration and some general information. As the platform does not offer a lot of information, we started to do some research on the internet. We found many negative reviews from former customers. In general, many people had a negative experience with the site. The operator of the site especially receives a lot of criticism. Also, we already know the company that runs this site.
This site is operated by Norfex Holdings Ltd, who are based in Tortola, the British Virgin Islands. We know this company because this is not their only portal, but one of many. The tricks are always the same. It starts with irritating and misleading information on the landing page. Later, costs will occur for a paid membership which will extend automatically.
The trial membership is a trap
After the registration, a new member will receive many messages. According to the reviews on the internet, this portal uses fake profiles that show fictional people. Also, fake chat operators seem to manage the fake profiles. We do have to point out that proof for a fake chat scam is missing. The operator does not mention anything about moderation in the terms and conditions. But the bad reputation of the operator speaks against the reliability of the company. In any case, a new member will be stimulated to make a purchase.
Costs will occur if a user wants to read or send messages. The paid membership is a rip-off as it will extend automatically. The operator will offer a trial membership that cannot be terminated in time. Then, it will extend automatically into an expensive paid premium-membership which runs for months. Of course, the paid membership is not worth it.
