I joined in September 2011. At that time I was told that Maureen Tara Nelson had a database of over 1000 active clients. I am a quite attractive, fit and well educated medical professional who is unwilling to do the bar scene or online dating. I spent 1.5 hours with MTNPM to discuss IN DETAIL the type of man that I was looking to meet. I was assured that they had many active members who would be ideally suited to my specifications. I was charged $2000 for the service and told that I would receive a "match" each week. I was very excited.
Weeks went by and no emails arrived. When I spoke with Ruth (MTNPM) and Jessica, I was told that I was being too picky and that they were offended because I was annoyed. I was asked to come to the office again to review what I was looking for in my "ideal" date. I explained that I hired them because I am picky but I was dismissed. I was told that I should accept every "match" because meeting someone might change my opinion. The catch was that every time I said "yes" to a match, I would be using one of the ten matches that I had purchased with the $2000!
I was very sporadically sent "matches". Of the 2 or 3 that I said might meet my expectations, I was consistently told that they said "no" or that they were dating someone else?????? And I had to prod MTNPM to get these responses! The email communication and customer service were (and still are) extremely limited and poor. When I would contact the office to complain, I would suddenly get a possible acceptable match the following week, only to be told that he didn't like the length of my hair, was dating someone else, was out of the state........one excuse after another. As another RipOff Report has indicated, I believe that these matches were "filler" and possible not real.
I attended several of her dating parties and was so discouraged by the turnout that it would make me depressed. I would sit and listen to other clients with the same complaints as mine!!!!
I have requested a refund but was denied, yet offered to have unlimited matches and add another year to my membership? For what purpose? Almost a year has gone by and I am still part of the growing number of displeased clients of Maureen Tara Nelson Private Matchmaking.
PLEASE.......save yourself the money and the heartbreak.......STAY AWAY FROM MAUREEN TARA NELSON PRIVATE MATCHMAKING!!!
I have photos, email correspondance and excuses for anyone to see if they email me
