THE TRUTH ABOUT MATE1.COM - Full of Illegal and Fraudulent Profiles/Members - The site is full of paid employees and members creating fake activity in an attempt to survive

I have finally figured out what is going on with Mate1.com website, after 9 months of being a member!

1. The site is full of Online ambassadors! - These are paid employees who are paid to send illegal and deceptive messages to trial members or inactive members telling them they like them, but only to get them to pay for another month of service!
2. The site is full of profiles from members who are NO LONGER a paid member able to access their accounts.
3. The site is full of fake profiles and fake members

How is this a problem for new members?

This site is illigitimate and full of illegal business practices! It is completely fraudulent, illegal, and tricks members to pay and join under false advertising and false activity.

In order for this company to survive, they must create fales and deceptive activity in order to get new members to join and continue getting these new members to pay the monthly fee.

Out of desperation to survive, they came up with the Online Ambassador program where they pay these employees $100 per week or more to do nothing but send deceptive messages to trial members or members whose membership has expired.

I actually spent 8 months of my time communicating back and forth with hundreds of deceptive and fraudulent members thinking they were interested in me, wasting hundreds of hours, only to find out in the end they were paid employees to keep me as a member.

When i went through ALL the messages i received and sent to other girls, I found out that 65% of the nmesseages i sent or received was from paid employees of Mate1.com, or online ambassadors, who NEVER had any intention of having any interest in me.

If this site was 100% legitimate, there would be atleast 50% less profiles and memmbers and 50% less activity between all members. If this happened, the company would lose huge profits.

This company is unethical and fraudulent.

MATE1.COM SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED BY THE NY AG!
