New Jersey Woman Sues Matchmaking Service After Date of 'Horror'
I wrote them an e-mail about trying to sell the membership, I am still waiting for the forms they were going to send me. As you may see, I tried the best to get this solved, but it seems that they just want their money in the bank. The only time I hear from them is to collect money. Like the person above I normally wouldn't even have considered using a dating service. And also like that person I responded to VIPsingles.
New Jersey Woman Sues Matchmaking Service After Date of 'Horror' - ABC News
They were in a big rush to get me in there and asked what my spontaeity level was. I declined but came in the next day, on my day off, a Saturday which I really didn't want to do. They make you take a personality profile and also ASK you a few questions about the person you are attracted to. Questions about physical attributes You have no say in the matter. Each person gets a very brief email stating the other person's name, city, home phone, age, race, eye color, hair color, and a couple interests. You may be shocked when you get to the meeting place. They may look nothing like what you asked for.
Needless to say I went on a few dates, I was nice, but the chemistry wasn't there.
Then I called a couple girls and either got no return call or they acted like it creeped them out or I was bothering them. Therefore I can absolutely say it was a waste of money and I feel cheated. I asked for a refund after 2 dates, 2 rejections, and 2 setups that I didn't persue and they said they don't give refunds and they could put me on hold until I was ready. And oh by the way, if they don't hear from you for four months your contract is DONE. It's a total SCAM. I'm going to campaign hard against them I too was scammed by Two of us formerly Together The scammer I had met with Pam, manager in Bridgewater, NJ actually played upon my emotions concerning a recent divorce, and I regret to say that she had me in tears.
You wind up with very few prospective dates that are actually compatible! It is actually just as much a crapshoot as walking in to a bar scene! Contrary to some, I did not have a "cooling off" period in which to cancel, and felt "buyer's remorse" immediately afterward. I spent dollars on 5 introductions after I had talked her down from and am now realizing it wasn't even worth A fool and his money are soon parted.
Better to take an ad in the paper, or deal with the internet sites bull than this. I agree this is a total scam, unfortunately I fell for it as well. It is a crap shoot; the person i met with said she has been doing this for over 10 years, and you would think there would be better matches but definitely no! I fell for it, too. Is there any legal action being taken anywhere? Correction on my earlier email. I am embarrassed to admit that I blew over 5 grand on absolutely nothing. Basically I plunked down 5 grand for filling out a form, going through an interview, getting my info entered into a program, then the program churns, puts out a match, and I get an anonymous email.
The first two matches ended up being total flops. Then I have to go back and enter feedback on my own. Think about that for a second.

Agreed that who knows how the matching program works. I do some computer programming and I honestly feel with a little research I could develop a process that works better than this and still make a ton of money. I would also probably give a trial period where you could get a partial refund depending on how much time and effort had been spent. That way no one feels like it was a total loss.
I understand that they are trying to protect themselves from someone finding someone and they claiming that they did not.
Then the scammer would try to get their money back, but damn. I look at the wording in the contract and it seems pretty solid. Currently I know of no legal action but I am thinking of contacting a lawyer. Anyone have any ideas?
Maybe a website or something? Simply put, I find it rather ridiculous to have such strong opinions and to slam a company because you have "buyer's remorse. I have been happily married for 2 years, even invited the office to my wedding and still continue a relationship with them, receiving anniversary gifts and continual contact to make sure I'm still happily married, to a wonderful man might I add. Comparing a professional dating service to the bar scene is unfathomable.
There is no comparison what-so-ever and continuing that pattern to find love will keep you lonely and susceptible to be scammed date after date after date with incompatible people. Crying about your last divorce sounds like you aren't even ready to TRY! Or maybe it's because you can't afford it? Because it's not worth having to send in feedback? Seriously now, the feedback is to constantly improve future dates. I went through 6 dates before meeting my husband.
All the men they set me up with were exactly what I was looking for, but there wasn't any chemistry. Whose fault is that? They can't control attraction. What they control is the compatibility and potential longevity of the relationship with the people they match you with.
I suggest you keep looking online, keeping scrolling through endless pictures of people and never get out there at all. Just sit behind your computer with so much time on your hands that you want to create a website? You must be lonely. Or you can go to bar to meet that special someone who's likely to be an alcoholic anyway. They took my money and did nothing for me.
Sent me one loser, the complete opposite of what I told them I needed, or wanted, and I never heard from them since. Monterey Financial Svcs another scam. I have the same views as most of the people who post-ed here, and have a response to the one woman who had success.
I've been to more than one of these sites, and see the same thing at all of them. I found my first girlfriend through Great Expectations years ago, but they committed fraud in signing me up by making promises they could never deliver on, but it wasn't worth worrying about for the low price I paid. I final-ly realized, that if sob enough about the money, they'll buckle because they want the sale badly enough.
I'm also sure that most, if not all, of this complaining is being done through this anonymous internet, so you're reading this without having the full effect of the human vocal emotions coming out. I went to the office in Ontario, California twice, and didn't sign up because I also didn't like the idea of not being able to see a picture of the person I was be-ing matched up with.
I don't like that idea. Looks, as superficial as this may seem, as a very important part of the equation and very subjective. That's just a fact of life. I also didn't like the idea of not being able to get a refund if you didn't meet anyone or didn't use your entire membership.
They say you can transfer or sell the remainder of it. Well, I live in Southern California, and people are maybe nice and smiley on the surface, but not gen-erally sincere underneath. You have to have a circle of friends in order to be able to do that.
