Customer Questions & Answers
This has always been our investigating style and has worked very effectively in exposing dating scams. Please read the full review below to understand if this is legitimate dating service or yet another scam to stay away from. Every time we join a fictitious dating service the first indicator that the site is fake is when we start getting email after email shortly after registering on the site.
We have been a member on the site for roughly a week and we haven't received a single message from another member on the site. You can take this as a good thing or a bad thing. We take it as a good thing because it means that the site is not using any form of automated computer bots to send phony email messages to their members.
In the past and over the hundred of reviews that we've done what always happens with fake hookup sites is that you will start getting blasted with fake emails from fictitious women who want to contact you. This always ends up being phony and a scam to get people to purchase monthly memberships to the faux dating site. In this particular situation with HookupHangout. Not one email was received from anyone on the site. This was in fact a very good indicator that we were dealing with a legit dating service.
Other indicators that a site is fake includes the creation of fictitious dating profiles that the website creates. We have a number of different software tools that helps us to identify if profiles are using fake pictures or not. We found no wrongdoing on HookupHangout.
No profile photographs came back as fictitious. This was another good indicator that this dating service is real. And yet another indicator that the site is truthful is the fact that no instant chat messages were received from anyone on the site. With almost of our other dating site reviews we were always bombarded with tons of instant messages from women on the site.
This was always another tool used to trick people into buying memberships to the fake dating sites. The only thing that we found in the terms and conditions page that could be considered an eyebrow raiser is the statement where they tell us that any member profile message or communication may not be genuine.
They go on to state that you should take caution especially if you're asked for your place of work, your address, your phone number or your name.
We don't think they are admitting to any form of fraud or creating fictitious profiles. What we think they're trying to tell us is that you should be careful when using their dating service because you never knew know who is trying to scam you ie: You can take a look at the statement below taken from their terms and conditions section of the site.
By using this service you accept that any member profiles, messages and communication may not be genuine. That caution is particularly relevant if you are asked your surname, place of work, address or telephone number or if you are asked to arrange a meeting.
We're happy to report that from our investigation and our own research it seems that HookupHangout. It's not to say that we met anyone on the site and had success meeting women but the fact remains that we weren't bombarded with emails, we didn't have fake profiles blasted in our face and no bogus instant messages were received.
Also we took the time to read the terms and conditions which uncovered no wrongdoing. Its difficult to find and meet women who are genuine and really know what they want; there are many fakes but sometimes - like my 15 year affair which is still going - you can succeed. Since I wrote my first review, Ive had one casual encounter and locally Ive met one woman who shares my need for something outside our main relationships. So now I can enjoy time with two partners both married like me but strictly no strings.
And Ill keep looking! I joined in , a married man looking for adventure outside my usual circle. Over the years I've had mixed experiences.
I think in those early days, in Europe anyway, the women on the site were often escorts, and it took a while to find genuine people. I chatted with dozens, met and slept with a few in the first six months, as a result had one very active six month relationship and one still going strong with regular sex after 14 years. Definitely over the time I've been on the site the number of scams seems to have increased, although I have managed to enjoy myself with a number of like-minded women in different countries.
I just do a bit of research before I travel. So you can have some fun if you take care. I have never advertised my 'equipment' on the site nor responded to women showing off their tops. Sex has to have some mystery, undressing is part of the fun. I also tried other sites with some success but the same issues.
Buyer beware but it is possible to achieve what you want. As a none paid member I received three positive messages, but after joining for 1 month i messaged the same three, but they never replied.
Joined this as ive had such an awesome time on hookuphangout recently that I had to see if I could double the fun! It's not quite working out that way, it's not bad but not quite the same level.
I get the feeling not many sites will be though. Will give it a bit longer, just in case. Being a man I opened an account as a male. I'm also a crossdresser There are always technical issues with the site. Always issues with the chat feature. Language challenges and no room for common sense decision making. Also, if you email customer service it takes forever to get a reply Adultfriendfinder seems like a good fit.
But it's full of women who simply don't know what they want. But for now this and Casualdating4u are stil one of the best options. Casualsexonly is another good one I've found. Be careful though cuz I've spotted some fake profiles.
This site has not changed in decades They take money and invest nothing in maintenance. They are now inundated with escorts and massage whores since Backpage and Craigslist went down. The rest are scams. They have a few "real"ones in each area, but infested with std's. My friend is a doc and can confirm for this The fakes put up ads in all areas of the country and get paid a "bonus" for each time they get someone to respond to them. Almost every ad with just one photo is totally fake just to make you think they have many members.
I won't even get into the deceptive billing practices. Of course I did it not completely sober one night.. Out of curiousity of course but hey we all thought "Hmmm Wouldnt this be great if legit?! Make my profile, use some of my best pics I'm 36 and average shape; not a gremlin but no male model type things besides my eyes apparently which probably saved me some potential sexual frustration ha.
I was in those first couple days becoming close to being impressed. I knew not to expect floods of females trying to pile on me.. If they had, red flag from hell right? I kept noticing Asian women "viewing" saying they were actually IN that part of the world. My guess is for more naive guys this helps keep their confidence and interest going. Not too bad, makes sense. Had an actual exchange with a real chick nearby.
Nothing fishy there either. Almost met up but I could tell sge was one of those camera angle wizards They usually sadly end up twice that size on meeting. Just not my thing After about the first week innumerable things have unveiled the usual third world corrupt hell hole tactics. Not the least of which now suddenly the site at least on mobile suddenly behaves like a web designer watched a 30 min video on web design on futuristic magical phones I got more but duty calls.
Cant believe its allowed in Not a bad site for NSA sex. Nice combination if you use it with hookuphangout. Ive been a member of this site for almost 20 years its changed ownership about 10 I remember when it was free for everyone now you cant even view a profile now with Craigslist shutting dow its personals section they now went up dollars in membership price AFF is far from the worst casual dating website I've tried out, but it's also not the best see hookuphangout.
I like the fact that there are lots of women and the mobile app works really well, problem is that there are a lot of guys too: Now that Craigslist removed personal ads, reliable hookup sites like Adultfriendfinder and CasualDating4u are even more important.
I know they ain't perfect but with all the scam sites out there those are the only legit options left. Keep it up guys. I became a gold member and once I put my pic up, I got overwhelmed with responses.
I am no beauty queen either; I look like a sweet Sunday school teacher. Had to redo my profile and get very specific about what I wanted because too many people were inboxing me. Then, I got as much background info as possible on potential dates and did background screens. Canceled many dates due to men lying about age, marital status, employment, etc before finding a decent fellow.
Many men wrote to tell me to be careful. Maybe they could tell how naive I was about online dating--who knows??!!. Do you mean the reviewers or AFF? I'm a member of AFF but not a big fan.
I have not met anyone from there in well over a year. I've only had a couple of emails returned on AFF. As for being a scam? No, I don't think so. I just think they attract a crowd that is not serious or respectful. They all say they find the community on SLS better. If you're a couple, Kasidie is worth checking out too. Members can send in ID to have their account verified.
We can not catch everything, but if a fake account slips though our fingers please report it and we will remove it. Write a Review Ask a Question Share. Helpful answer 0 Votes Thanks for voting!
