Latest Developments in Online Dating Scams Explained With The Example of LuckyHookup.com

   no comments   ReviewsScams


We all know that the popular hit by Calvin Harris named “Get Lucky” was topping the charts because of the catchy title. And it is true that he hit the right spot with that one – we all want to have that lucky list with booty calls to pick a delicious choice. And LuckyHookup.com says that they will help you find just the right person with the Lucky List feature. However, the truth is far from the promises like night and day.

Purity Of Luckyhookup.com In Question

This is what you get with the free or paid subscription:

  • “Lucky List” Advanced Search tool used with just 1-click!
  • Unlimited private messaging tool
  • Daily “Lucky Line Up” matching feature
  • Live HD video chat & private cam rooms
  • Private profiles with multiple pictures

There is one thing I don’t understand from these features – how can I have an HD chat if I don’t have the right equipment at home. And why are the cams included separately? Maybe because they are just a commercial trick to sell you some cam model services?

Why is LuckyHookup.com a False Dating Service

Here you can see the explanation of three crucial moments where the truth needs to shine some light on the lies stated on the front page. By examining three pictures we will give you evidence of the true scammy tools applied behind the scene.

#1 – Features

The landing page promises that each day will be your lucky day – just have a look:

Unfortunately, the site is full of fake and fabricated profiles of women who chat up new members, try to sell them a subscription and monitor their content:

“Our LS work for the site in an effort to stimulate dialogue with users and to stimulate user participation on the Website and Services, advertisement of the Website and Services, and the creation of user profiles. The LS also monitor user activities and communications to ensure compliance with our Terms and Conditions. You understand, acknowledge, and agree that the information, text, and pictures contained in the LS profiles do not pertain to any actual person or member, but are included for entertainment purposes only.”

You should be very careful when you notice the two letters LS next to a profile because this is most definitely a fraud.

#2 – Security

All these wonderful features presented on the landing page are in no way managed in that way.

If you thought that the Love Stars work only as sales agents, you will be quite surprised to learn that they also keep an eye of your info – and the site manipulates with it in more ways than one:

“By the use of the Site or its services, the Member, visitor or User expressly agrees that the Site may use any information that it gathers or collects about the Member, visitor or User including personal information that has been provided by the Member, visitor or User via the Site’s Love Stars (“LS”) program, Customer Service, or other mechanisms, for technical, administration, research and development, customer administration, age verification, legal compliance, marketing, promotional and advertising use and for the transmission of email communications,”

1. Your information is available on other partner sites

2. You are on your own when having a member dispute

3. No communication with the fake profiles is private.

#3 – Free membership?

Lucky Hookup free registration.

While it is true that you are in for free, at least if you don’t put a price your personal information, but you can very easily fall into the trap of credit card pre-authorization, which is almost just as good as payment, especially if you miss seeing the already marked boxes with the additional video services:

Price Tag

  • LuckyHookup.com GOLD membership is $49.95
  • Vibe Video monthly membership is $36.61
  • Video Erotic monthly subscription is $28.87

Busted or Trusted?

Again Nautell Network is stirring the pot with the fabricated profiles and with the credit card pre-authorization scam. I just wonder how many people have fallen for this and I honestly hope that the number is not that large. Getting to see a charge of over a hundred dollars when you thought you paid zero is the most unpleasant surprise I can think of at the moment!
