Summary Of The Scam:

- Computer Generated Friends Requests
- Automatic Electronic Communications (E-Mails) Sent To Free Members
- This Site Is For Adult Entertainment Purposes Only
Company Generated Cupid Profiles (Artificial Female Member Profiles):
Did you know that Cougarcrush.com uses something called "company generated computer profiles". These are artificial female member profiles. To the untrained eye these female profiles look like real girls. They have everything that you would notice in a legitimate member profile such as a bunch of different photographs, personal information and so on. But, the hoax here is that everything is 100% illegitimate and has been manufactured by the site. These are not real women, and unfortunately for you they are not seeking to hook up with anyone. It's all a massive deception that targets male members.
On the front page of the site you need to agree that you are "18 years or older and agree to the use and nature of generated Cupid profiles". This little paragraph is put on the front page for one reason only and that is to legally cover the people who operate Cougarcrush.com. If you come back and say that you have no awareness of the computer generated profiles that the site uses. Probably 99% of the people would never bother reading the terms and conditions section 1 to understand what "generated cupid profiles" really are. The site knows this and they use it to their advantage.
If they had big black letters on the front page of the web site saying "we use fake profiles", then no one would register on the site, but since they bury it in their terms and conditions this makes it much more likely that very few people will understand what's going on.
The phony company generated cupid profiles are marked with this icon . These member profiles are created automatically. The reason they create these profiles is for marketing. When we say marketing we mean they use this as a sales method.. By creating fictitious dating profiles they can use them to do a multitude of different deceptive marketing tactics such as bogus automated friends requests, sending you bogus automated emails and also they use them to automatically send out fake computer-generated instant messages. All these methods combined with the company generated cupid profiles are used to lure you into buying a monthly subscription.
By writing this review we are bringing everything that is hidden to the front so everyone can see exactly the methods in which the site runs their operation. They cannot hide behind terms and conditions, we break everything down for you to explain everything so you understand exactly what's going on.
(One of countless "company generated profiles" that are created by the staff of Cougarcrush.com. Notice the ? That icon indicates that it's a sham profile.)
(That was on the front page of the site stating that the site uses "company generated profiles", so they did warn you that they use illegitimate profiles.)
Taken from the terms page Of Cougarcrush:
"Company Generated Cupid Profiles (marked with ) are created automatically for marketing. Company Generated Cupid Profiles may be introduced with a designated symbol, which is the sign on every item of interaction of such a profile.You acknowledge and agree that some of the profiles posted on the Website that you may communicate with as a Registered User may be fictitious. The purpose of our creating these profiles is to provide our Registered Users with entertainment. The user profiles we create are not intended to resemble or mimic any actual persons. We may create several different user profiles that we attach to a given picture. You understand and acknowledge that we create these profiles and that these profiles are not based on or associated with any Registered User or Member of our Service or any other real person. You also acknowledge and agree that the descriptions, pictures and information included in such profiles are provided primarily for your amusement.
Computer Generated Friends Requests:
If you don't have any experience with dating sites then this will slip by you as well. This site is involved in the use of computer generated friends requests. The friends requests we received look legitimate until you took a closer look and you notice that little icon . That icon discloses that the female member sending us friends request is in fact a computer-generated profile. She is not a legitimate member of the site. All friends request we received were computer generated.
The main reason Cougar Crush uses computer generated friend requests is as a marketing tool on free members by initiating communications. When you try to initiate communications you will be sent to a different page where you will be asked to upgrade your membership so you can communicate back to bogus lady sending you the friends request. This is why they use computer-generated friends requests and automatically send them to free members.
(One of hundreds and possibly thousands of company generated cupid profiles labeled with the used to send automated friends requests to free members.)
Automatic Electronic Communications (E-Mails) Sent To Free Members:
Just as the computer generated friends requests are used to entice people into upgrading, Automatically sent emails are designed to do the exact same thing. All the email communications we received were from the company generated computer profiles, which are completely bogus individuals. The emails are used to entice male members in trying to communicate back to the generated profiles. And of course communicating with other members isn't possible until you purchase a subscription.
(An example of one of the many faked computer generated emails we received.)
Taken from the terms page:
"The messages they send are computer generated. Messages from the user profiles we create attempt to simulate communications so that should you become a paid Member you are encouraged to participate in more conversation and to increase interaction among fellow paid Members. We will, send automatic electronic communications to stimulate conversation between members. Additionally, we will utilize our automated system profiles to communicate with Users to enhance our Users' entertainment experience.
This Site Is For Adult Entertainment Purposes Only:
Did you know that Cougarcrush has a primary goal of providing adult entertainment experience? Read that carefully, adult entertainment experience. Their goal is not to provide you with a place to meet other individuals. Their goal is to entertain you through their site. If you can understand that it means they didn't design the site to help you meet real people in real life. The site has been created to provide you entertainment just like you would be entertained when watching a movie! Obviously the opportunity for you to interact and meet real individuals is very slim since the site runs on fake members.
Taken from the terms page:
"www.cougarcrush.coms primary purpose is to provide an adult entertainment experience. The purpose of our creating these profiles is to provide our Registered Users with entertainment. We will utilize our automated system profiles to communicate with Users to enhance our Users' entertainment experience..
You Have To Provide Accurate Information (But The Site Utilizes Bogus Profiles):
When reading through the terms and conditions we found it very comical that you as a member have to agree to provide "accurate, current and complete information in your profile". While at the same time in the terms and conditions the website clearly admits to creating bogus profiles and using emails and instant messages that are all computer generated. And they admit the site is assigned for entertainment purposes only. But YOU have to provide accurate information. Unbelievable!
