This website is a scam. All of the profiles are computer generated to get you to be actively involved in the site and "to encourage participation" (in the site's own words) found in the disclaimer on the site. Evidently, they use a company called Cupid, Inc. to create generic profiles for the site. The disclaimer even mentions that the site is for entertainment purposes only and not for dating. When you sign up, you'll be directed to "pay for" sites with internet chatting, web cams, etc. Users will "message" you, but will never reply to your responses. The one thing that gives it away is their website technology is a little out of whack. Some of the user profiles aren't quite par with their messages. Another words, you'll get a message from some hottie just down the road that says "I noticed we're pretty close, would you like to swap contact information?" When you pull up their profile, their like a gazillion miles away. Don't waste your money. This is a complete joke!

Hey, they got your money, so now let the buyer beware. You will notice on each of the profiles a little icon that says OC, stands for Online Cupid. Maybe somewhere there is a lawyer that talked some sense into these guys, and they felt they needed to cover themselves.
I have looked at over 1800 profiles of women on this site, and none of them were real people. I was amazed at how many I had to go through to find one real woman.
Guess the best way to describe this site is that it is a men only site, where men pay $29.95 per month to talk to a computer generated room filled with artificial women. To make matters worse, if you delete your profile, your pictures and description remain and they will use you to lure others onto this site.

Hook Up.com is a fraud, I agree, not only most profiles are fake, but some "girls" also chat with you suggesting things like: "Hi, Wanna play?" They will ask you to meet on your private e-mail chat, but before starting "the game" they will tell you: Do you have your credit card number?

I'm on another site called cougarlife.com which has OC's as well, but they're kind of obvious just like what buddy there described, but I have met a few women off there, just normal women not like the perfect ten OC's and it was a positive experience so I don't care. But now it seems like I'm getting new generation OC's it seems like telling me in very detailed msgs and from email accounts to join up with hookup.com so they can verify my ID claiming the site will screen me. She claimed its free, but I have to give my credit card info, so now im suspicious but the thing that really tipped me off was the 2nd OC msging me with similar lines in her profile, instant access to private pics. Would they go this far for 30 bucks?

Response from their Customer support: We have over 20 million "real" members on our site.

When you upgraded to a premium membership, the following disclaimer was clearly stated on the upgrade page,

“By logging in, I affirm that I am at least 18 years old and I understand that this site is for adult entertainment purposes only, and agree to the terms and conditions, privacy policy and to the use and nature of online cupids”.

Online Cupids or OC’s are fictitious profiles made by real people intended to stimulate conversation with members in order to encourage a broader participation in all of our Site's services. This includes the posting of additional information and/or pictures to the member’s profiles. The OC's also serve as a means of monitoring member activities, communications between members, and ensure compliance with our Terms and Conditions. OC profiles are clearly marked with a white Online Cupid badge at the top of the profile page.
************************************************** ***********************************
Well they won't disclose how many of those 20M "real" members are paying males (probably very close to 100%) and how many are real females (I'd say close to 0%). Just go on their site as a male (looking for a woman) and click on Who's Online, and almost 100% are Online Cupids - you know the ones that send you bogus Buddy requests daily, the ones that send you bogus flirty messages daily, and the ones that that pop up at the bottom of your active screen wanting to chat! AND yes they are "clearly" designated as Online Cupids, but EVERYTHING YOU GET IS, so you forget that they are totally fake - no site could have that much fake fantasy crap! Well if you are a man looking for a woman this site is totally fake!

Except for a few "blank" female "basic members" that have profile names like "TEXTME_1234567890", and those are just your run of the mill Ghana scammers - hey, but at least they are real people in Ghana trying to scam your money, and not computer generated fake Online Cupids!

By the way, if you are a woman signing on to this site it is a totally different experience as there are NO male Online Cupids (at least that I'm aware of - gotta keep the women happy in this Honey Trap of a supposed dating site), AND when you click on to see Who's Online, it is 100% eligible REAL paying member men!

Big fat [censor] scam! God knows what's happening to my personal details at the moment. Really, it's probably even better to blow your credit card on cam girls. Atleast they're real!
