JustHookUp.com appears to be like any other dating website with a member base of over 500,000 and roughly 100,000 members online at any given time. With many feature similar to other dating site you can send email to other members, online chat, send a wink, add members to your favorites or view who has been looking at your profile. While the site appears to be nothing unusual it seems it may actually be more of a wolf in sheep’s clothing. While exploring the site I noticed a small symbol on all of the profiles I was viewing so I did a bit of digging. When I clicked on the icon (which you can see below)
the sites “Terms and Conditions” would open in a separate window. Since I found this unusual I decided to read though the document for a possible explanation and what I found was some information, which to me seems to be a clear indication of the legitimacy of the site as a whole. Under section 9 of the terms and conditions they mention “Virtual Cupids” which apparently are fabricated profiles used to enhance a users experience on the site and by using the site you “acknowledge that some of the profiles and Members displayed to them may be fabricated to promote user, Member and/or Subscriber activity and participation in all the Services” they even proceed to tell you that they indicate this with the symbol I noticed earlier ”PLEASE NOTE THAT EVERY VC PROFILE CAN BE IDENTIFIED WITH OUR VC SYMBOL IN THE UPPER RIGHT HAND CORNER”. So by there own admission the site uses fake profiles making this website seemingly useless since the only communications I received were from profiles which contained the VC symbol.
Now while there are profile pages on the site that don’t have the VC symbol you are unable to communicate with them unless you upgrade your membership by paying for a subscription. Needless to say I was a bit hesitant to provide my credit card information after reading about the “Virtual Cupids”. I’m not positive that the entire member base is fabricated but it seems to me that a large portion of it is. The only feature I could use was “send a wink” which I attempted with a few women but I never received any wink or response back of any kind.
For a more comprehensive look at the site and some further insight on why we believe JustHookUp.com is a SCAM check out our video review below
In my opinion JustHookUp.com can be best described as a wolf in sheep’s clothing and seems to me to be nothing more than a SCAM. While most members would never think to read through the “Terms and Conditions” this allows them to continue operating under the guise of a regular dating website. They are dependent solely on the ignorance of their “members” to continue operating. Needless to say I would not recommend using this website. If you’re looking for something more legitimate I would recommend trying PassionSearch.com or SocialSex.com
