MidnightFreeHookups.com is a cheeky online dating scam created by a company supposedly called Internet Services. This bland name is impossible to track down, so we suspect they are not really incorporated anywhere. The landing page shows a woman in lingerie, and a small selection of alleged platform users, all of them women. The introductory text encourages us to engage with other users immediately. Apparently, there is no time to lose here. The website promises there are lots of hot dates waiting for us. Alas, it is just a rip-off.
Weird verification method
The portal is clearly reserved for adult audiences. There are a few ads at the bottom of the page, offering adult games and similar services. This is one of the income streams used by the operator. The other one is a dodgy verification system, which is supposed to guarantee that all users are over 18.
All we need to do to access the premium features is to confirm that we are adults. Conveniently for the operator, we must provide our credit card information. In our experience, this is a horrible idea. Not only is it a fake chat where there are no real humans. If we agree to give up such sensitive information, we are basically giving full access to our money to an untraceable provider.
The following excerpts are taken from the Terms and Conditions
Please, note that while using Our Services You may sometimes interact with automated online accounts and/or fictitious profiles, which its interactions have been generated by or with the assistance of automated programs or scripts, or by real persons that have been contracted or employed by Us (hereinafter “Bots”, “Automated Profiles” or “Fictitious profiles”).
These Automated Profiles are being used within the Services for enhancing Your amusement experience and providing You with entertaining services, which helps You to better intercommunicate with another user who is a real human being.
Bear in mind that none of the content or actions made by Automated Profiles are the result of, or arise in connection with, a natural person’s profile or otherwise User Content. None of the dialogues with the Automated Profiles really exist and have been generated exclusively by programming.
When an operator makes the decision to use such a terrible company name, there is a reason for it. Internet Services wants to avoid accountability. They do not wish to be available for complaints or even basic customer care, let alone expose themselves to legal action. We could not even find their actual location, although in past reviews we have seen that they are supposed to be in the Seychelles, which is conveniently far away from everything. The only way to get in touch with them is via e-mail address, which they can easily ignore.
