Despite seeming promising at first, our experience with YummyHookups.com proved otherwise. The portal depicts itself as a great place to meet, find dates, and chat with local singles. From the homepage, most visitors to the website would think that the portal contains many attractive members to connect with. Unfortunately, we found that the operator of this website is running a fake chat scam on this dating portal. The operator of YummyHookups.com is Service Development Ltd, a Cyprus-based company, who have a network of similar rip-off websites.
The landing page of YummyHookups.com suggests that this website provides an online dating service. Most users would assume that it is a place where they can find like-minded singles to chat and meet up with for dates. In our experience, this is not the case. Instead, this platform is largely populated with false profiles. These accounts are managed by fake chat operators, who will communicate with users. This is confirmed in the fine print on the website, and in the Terms and Conditions.
From the Terms and Conditions
From time to time, while You use Our Services, You may interact with automated online accounts and/or false profiles, which all its content has been generated by either: a) real persons that have been only contracted or employed by Us for the purposes set-forth below; or/and b) by automated programs or scripts, which dialogues none really exist and have been generated exclusively by programming (Hereinafter, collectively referred to as “Automated Profiles”).
According to the Bolstering Online Transparency Act or any other equivalent regulation that may be applicable, We have added the tag with the nickname “Digital Foxy” to all the Automated Profiles that are being used in Our Website, so You can clearly identify them. Such tag will always be displayed on the top bottom right of the user’s identification information.
Fake chat scam
Not only is this a misleading website, which uses ingenuine chat moderators, it is also a rip-off. The portal requires users to purchase a premium membership, if they want to send messages and replies, using the chatting feature. So, when the attractive looking fake chat operators send members enticing and suggestive messages, users will likely be encouraged to spend money to chat with them. The result is a waste of money and time.
In the terms, the operator claims that users can easily identify fake profiles because they are marked by the nickname, “Digital Foxy.” Though we were able to notice this nickname, users who did not read through the entire terms of service, would likely not know that this signifies a fictional account. Thus, this is a misleading scam. When conducting our review of this site, we noticed that messages immediately filled our inbox. All were from accounts marked by this nickname.
