We advise that all Members and/or Subscribers should take the following precautions when meeting or corresponding with anyone on any dating or social networking website:
Anyone capable of identity theft can also falsify a dating profile;
There is really no substitute for acting with caution when interacting with any stranger or Member and/or Subscriber who wants to meet you;
You should never share your personal details: last name, email address, home address, phone number, place of work, or any other identifying information in your dating profile or initial email messages. We do our best to police the site for potential fraud and scam artists. We advise you to stop communicating with anyone that pressures you for personal or financial information; and
If you decide to meet face-to-face with another Member and/or Subscriber, you should always tell a close friend or family member where you are going and when you are expected to return. Never agree to be picked up at your home. Always be in control of the situation, provide your own transportation to and from your meeting and meet in a public place with many people around.
Although we do our best to monitor gohookup.com and our affiliates’ content, we cannot guarantee that all material used has consent prior to publication. If you feel that any content should be removed from our site, please do not hesitate to contact us.
