DateHookup.comFake Profiles

P

A VERY good percentage of female profiles on datehookup are "fake" and I'm very tired of it. I'm assuming that it's the site administrators who respond to most the messages. You'll also notice, that there are quite a few profiles who have a "decent" pic of themselves but in the self description box, it says, "(no description provided)". When you send these people a message, asking them some basic questions, most of the questions are "dodged" and the respond back is so vague and impersonal that one can only assume that it is being answered by a site administrator...

Additional Information:

The owner of Datehookup.com is Dustin R. Weirich. His nickname on the site is merely “Dustin”. Mr. Weirich also incorporated a business in California on August 30, 2004 called Search Floor, Inc. The registered address for this internet related business is 117 Lost Oak Court, Roseville, CA, 95661. This address is believed to be his home address. The telephone number for this business where you can reach Mr. Weirich is [protected]. His home telephone number is [protected].

    I talked to guy on here named kingluv2010, from Co. (Aurora) so he said. I believe he is a fake. His profile picture is georgous. Says he has son, living with him. He romanced me in poetry, claiming I was his soulmate. I fell hard and fast till he messed up, sons age was inconsistant and asked for gifts for his son. Expensive gifts. I wish I had listened when the site said not to IM or go off this site to chat. He gave me a international phone # claiming he was on a business trip in Ghana, and wanted to meet me when thru. It was my first time doing this, and in the end it scared me to think who I was really dealing with. Claims to be Maxwell Morgan, and a christian. He gave me a phone # in Aurora, Co that really existed. When I called it the lady told me no honey no one here by that name, though he gave me the correct address of this lady. I will never do this kind of thing again. There are too many scammers. So watch out girls for this guy, he can be real romantic and convincing.

    What do you expect from a dating site? I mean it is a given that some or many of the profiles are either fake or put up there by admin. So use it at your own risk I guess.

    You should ask for a picture of them with a recent newspaper showing the date that would solve the problem of knowing if there photos theres.

    Way too many multiple profiles. one lady had 9 profiles most have 2 to 4, men being women and vise versa. It's gotten pretty bad, you have no clue who you are actually chatting with. The forums are Ok. But the people have run off so many newbies and most delete as soon as they sign up. Way to much bullening on Datehookup. The moderators must be related to Dustin, not quite sure if he is still the owner, way too mismanaged.

    Datebook Up sucks!! I was almost taken in by Nigerian scammer from this site. He admitted to me what he was and he wanted to get back on this site after being kicked off. AND HE DID!! They also will not take down your profile when you delete your account. Then you can't get back on because your password is wrong. They should change the name of the site to Scamhookup!

    Date Hookup is a joke! They do nothing about these people that make fake profiles so they can send others harassing messages. I blocked and flagged a guy for doing it once, then he made another profile and did it again. Blocked and flagged it too. Hes still on there. Oh and when i made the suggestion in the Forum that they should track the IP addresses for this kind of ###, the moderators of the forums came back and were ignorant to me. In fact the one called me a drama queen #@#!! just for making the suggestion. This Dustin dude and his employees and all go [censored] themselves.

    I can tell you this much as I have a friend who lives around the corner from this street. If this is the correct address it is a house and a very very expensive neighborhood and I am talking 800k-2million homes. I highly doubt that somebody in a neighborhood and money to live there would place a public company out of there home address from what I gathered it is reg to a PO box in rosevill ca not 117 lost oaks

    Recently caught my BF on there- and he is no kid, this is an educated mature adult got to see some of the messages these women are posting. They want you to call them.Of course, so you can $$$$ ! Seriously, some of the pics are really bad, only the truly desperate would contact some of these women! Do you really think you are going to meet a quality person on a site called datehookup??? the same goes for senior people meet.com, lots of people looking for someone to takemcare of them in their old age, travel, etc.
    Traced one of 'em down and wasn't even from the area she said she was.
    As for my BF... sad that this is a form of coping for some people... A lot to lose here, if he only knew...has everything a guy could want, even others tell him so. Funny part is, my guy isn't who he is claiming to be either- hasn't been that guy for a long, long time. And there is no financial payoff there either- or travel, or the drama -free realtionship so many of the guys on there are also asking for. The drama is all his- not mine.

    I haven't done anything wrong & they kicked me out of this site.
    No matter how I try to get in with the right user name & my password, it will not let me back on here. This site is very disrespectful & awful that they won't even let you explain why they've kicked you out. I absolutely have not done anything wrong!! If anything, why don't they delete the files with sexual naked showing part of their boobs & bad attitude people on here. Its getting pretty low. I'm actually glad that I got kicked out but I'm very worried about my picture is still sitting on here. I was thinking about deleting it & this happened. You guys also be very careful not to get involved in Scams. They are mostly from Nigeria, or it could be from any other dating sites and there are so many of them. if you ever deal with people with accent from Africa, beware they try to write you a nice e-mail messages & talk to you like lovers & ask you to send them monies like feeling sorry for them. They all use an innocent victim of stolen pictures from other places who knows where acting like as if its them. Beware!!!

    YES... I agree.

    DateHookUp IS a HUGE "JOKE". I have had a membership on their site 3 different times. Each time - it's all fake profiles where the photos are air-brushed, profiles of women acroos the U.S. states that say they are in New York (and other places), and profiles that use "God-fearing". If you have a profile on DateHookUp and you see "God-fearing" in the body of the text... it's most likely a fake. I happen to be a "Spiritual, Multi-Faith, Open 3rd Eye, Home-Based Christian"... and usually when people use "God-fearing" in their description personality... they are usually from the Philippines, or they're from Nigeria. Recently, I had my 3rd profile up. As a disabled man (if you looked at me- you would not even know I had a disability)... I am NOT only OFFENDED by fake profiles - those who contact me with fake profiles... I also consider their "advances" (contacting me) as a THREAT to my life. Because of that - I sent an email in return to something to the effect as "Why don't you stop scamming, spamming, hacking, catfishing and [censored] off - my friend at the Department of Justice cyber fraud unit in Washington, D.C. would find this very interesting". Yes... I scared the living [censored] out of them. Then, what happened? I tried logging in and my account was gone. This company and website needs to be SHUT DOWN. Does anyone out there have the power to do this? Because - with enough complaints - the Better Business Bureau and Cyber Fraud units in the U.S. should look into this. (I really do not have a friend in the Dept. of Justice cyber fraud unit in Washington, D.C. - and I do NOT lie - but I had to obviously at that point - just to scare the [censored] out of them to leave me alone.). WHAT A JOKE! AGAIN - THIS SITE SUCKS... Dustin R. Weirich SUCKS and I would tell it to his sorry a$$ too if I ever had to. This guy should be sued. He's pretty much SELLING everyone's identity to scammers, hackers, catfish, spammers, etc. and ALLOWING this - "aiding and abetting" in criminal activity. SOMEONE OR SOME BUSINESS - SHUT THIS WEBSITE DOWN - PLEASE!!!

    I met a man from this "wonderful" datehookup site, , , , , googled his name one day and found out he is a registered sex offender.. he strong arm raped a 13 year old female. I reported him, both his profiles to the administrators of Datehookup... told them all they had to do was google his name and they would find out I was telling the truth about him. Told them they needed to remove him from the site, in order to protect the females on their, and their children. I kept checking my sent messages, they read my message to them, then deleted it...he is still on the site. They aren't protecting the unsuspecting females on the site. This site sucks, , , , plus, too many fakes, , , , men just preying on us females, , liars, , cheaters...heartbreakers. Us good, loyal females get done wrong cause these sorry men can't stop looking for these hoes on Datehookup, , , they got nothing to offer

    Why is pornography allowed to be posted all over datehookup.com? I know for a fact that minors are looking at the porno. Myself and several other parents have written to the site and asked them to take it down. They will not. Here is just one example. http://www.datehookup.com/Thread-1431186.htm
