InstantHookups presents itself as the go-to site for singles and couples looking for quick non-committal dating encounters, casual hookups, and other forms of relationships. As its name ‘InstantHookups’ suggests, the online platform is where adults can find partners to engage within a no-strings-attached casual relationship, which includes friends with benefits, sugar relationships, one-night stand, and even long-term relationships.
However, rumors flooding the online dating streets tell quite a different story about the services rendered by InstantHookups.com. Tales abound on how the adult dating platform is hiding stinking scam projects behind a sophisticated website with great design and a convincing layout.
As experts on dating sites, we decided to check if the rumors bear any truths in them, as the saying goes, ‘where there is smoke, there is fire.’ We took it upon ourselves to review the dating site and establish whether InstantHookups.com is the real deal, or it is just a total scam.
How it works
InstantHookups.com is an online adult dating site that provides a platform for singles and couples to find hook ups for casual dating encounters.
The first thing you notice when you land on the homepage of InstantHookups adult dating platform is that the website is uniquely designed. It has all the hallmarks of a professional premium adult dating website. The colors are appealing, the graphics are on point, and the layout is captivating.
If you think the graphics are impressive, wait till you see the stats (which you can’t help but notice). A quick overview of the stats indicates that the ratio of women to men on InstantHookups is 10 to 1. Furthermore, the stats suggest that a whopping 85% of its members have been connected to their perfect hookup partners. It indicates that the InstantHookups platform is so effective in connecting singles and couples to dating partners for casual encounters, and anyone who joins never misses out on finding a dating partner.
To register, you have to answer six questions indicating your preferences, after which you will be prompted to fill in your nickname and email. However, the platform does not ask about your age, which is quite interesting. Many adult dating platforms require you to provide your age when registering on their site. We found it surprising that InstantHookups doesn’t do the same.
Even so, we cannot deny that the adult dating platform has put in a lot of effort to design a nice website. For dating sites, the design of the site must be appealing and attractive to entice more people to use the platform. InstantHookups have mastered this strategy and have made good use of it.
Who can you find there?
When you browse the profile of users on the InstantHookups online platform, you won’t fail to notice some profiles that share a generic profile photo and missing profile information. Some of these profiles may turn out to be fake and not of real people.
Of what use are fake profiles on such a platform, you wonder? One possible scenario is that, InstantHookups.com creates these fake profiles to boost the number of registered users on its platform to make it seem like it has many actives.
We also discovered that, the number of users on InstantHookups doesn’t match the stats given on the platform’s homepage. Therefore, you should not believe everything you read about InstantHookups on their website, as some of the statements there might not be true.
Another notable thing is the influx of messages you receive immediately after creating your account. Once you publish your profile, you will start to receive a ton of flirty messages from people wanting to hook up with you. However, the messages are hidden behind a pay wall. To access these messages, you have to pay the membership fees.
After creating your account, you will be immediately directed to the membership page where you will be required to make a payment. You can’t help but notice how aggressive InstantHookups gets in making you pay for membership.
However, InstantHookups doesn’t tell you it is charging for membership. Instead, it will ask you to fill in your credit card details to verify your age.
If you aren’t too careful here, you will fail to notice the fine print indicating you will be charged following the expiry of the free 1-day trial period. What this means is that, 24 hours later, you will be automatically charged over $90 every month, that is, if you don’t cancel the subscription.
Not only are the charges hidden, but you also are not informed about it. Woe unto you if you are not too careful, because if you don’t cancel the subscription, your card will be charged over $90 every month.
There are many complaints against InstantHookups.com, suggesting there is a big safety concern with its services. For instance, there is the issue of hidden subscription where InstantHookups.com requests for your credit card details, while pretending that it only wants to check for your age. It uses fine print to mask the real motive, which is to subscribe you to the platform without your knowledge.
Once the 1-day trial expires, InstantHookups will automatically charge you over $90, and this is a recurring payment. If you fail to cancel the 1-day trial subscription, you will find yourself paying for a subscription every month, even without knowing.
We also found that the platform is full of suspicious profiles. These profiles don’t have adequate information, and many of them share generic photos. Furthermore, even before we finished creating our profile, we started receiving many messages from beautiful women wanting to flirt.
There is overwhelming evidence indicating that InstantHookups might not be trustworthy.
