JustHookup.com Review [Updated]
review was conducted as an independent probe with funds provided by
the reviewer and was not in any way promoted or influenced by the web
site possessor or anyone affiliated with the business.
Initial thoughts were that the site was joy to be on and can keep you
involved. Indeed involved to be precise! The site is in no way free.
In order for a member to read messages, see who winked at them, or see
who viewed their profile, they need to pay a membership fee.
In no time after our initial successful registration, members embarked
viewing our profile. What struck us as an interesting coincidence is
the fact that the members visiting our profile were the same members
we had recently viewed. Visits to our profile commenced pouring in.
Abruptly, there was a thick amount of emails in our mailbox. Don’t
leave behind, we couldn’t read emails or see who visited us, until we become
a paid member, so we paid for our monthly membership and to please
We contacted a few profiles belonging to people living in a 50 mile
radius from us. We also replied to some of the members that had
previously contacted us. Response ratio was 0%. A few other members
however contacted us, but when we replied, we never heard from them
again. A common element we noticed with all the people who contacted
us, visited us, or winked at us was an icon in their profile
resembling a little Cupid (update April 11, 2012 – the icon has switched to a VC in a graphical appearance). This was very suspicious!
We commenced digging through the site’s Terms and Conditions and we
discovered something called Virtual Cupids. Turns out that all these
profiles were fake / automated profiles intended to keep members
involved. They visit your profile a few seconds after you visit
theirs. They also have the capability to contact you. Don’t leave behind, they
embark doing all this while you are still unpaid member, attempting to
influence you into purchasing a membership.
Whenever we searched for members near us, all profiles that were
returned as results, were Virtual Cupids. We determined to experiment, so
by using a proxy server, we logged in to the site, pretending to be
residing in Los Angeles, California. Low and behold, all these
profiles that were virtual Cupids in Fresh York, had now mysteriously
shifted their locations to within 50 miles from LA. What a scam this
Conclusion. The site uses unfair practices to incentivize fresh members
into purchasing membership. Don’t be mislead and don’t pay for
Wish I’d read this sooner. Surely this is fraud.
I have filed a complaint with the FBI and Justice Department for cybercrimes regarding this site. These scammers should all go to jail for fraud. Everyone reading this should file a complaint at www.FBI.gov
This must stop. This is just unspoiled ",stealing", and fraud.
the VC you cant complain about, the site covered their culo, the vc icon if clicked states that their not real members just promo’s to lure u in
I got took!! The FBI will not do anything! You can complain all you want, but your waisting your time with the FBI, believe that! There are so many complaints about this website, that it’s pathetic, and you can thank the FBI for that. They, the FBI, stated to others that there must be a pattern?! What do you call this FBI. It makes me fairly ill to even think the law enforcemnt(FBI) is providing them a license to commit crimes, what a freaken joke. What you can do tho’, is to contact mastercard fraud department as I did. That will shut them down quickly. This company, justhookup.com is a merchant using mastercard. They have guidelines and fraud is NOT one of them.
thanks. I remembered to check the reviews for this site b4 i payed. thanks. you all saved me money. THANK YOU SO MUCH
Wish I had read this sooner.. All this is true.. I paid for basic membership in order to reply to the many emails i got from damsels in my area. Turns out they were all fake accounts. I emailed them (they took their customer support phone number off their website) and they cancelled my account, but will not refund my money. Far as I am worried that is theft, outright.
I was just about to sign up, so thanks for the heads-up. guys! Let’s hope that they get closed down fairly soon!
I was going to pay to join this site, but I think I’ll maybe not bother now. Thanks for the goes up guys!
Wish i had read before signed up the other day.
