Complaint Review: TOGETHER DATING
TOGETHER DATING Preys on peoples emotions San Antonio, Texas
*Author of original report: NOW WHAT....MY RECORDS HAVE BEEN MOVED!!!
This company is VERY good at what they do, which is rip you off!! I don't even know how they originally got my information; but I think I responded online on day about a dating service, and then the phone calls started. They want to get you into the office for a "personal" interview as soon as possible and are very persuasive. They use very subtle strong sales techniques that get you hooked and before you know it, you are in that chair meeting with a "dating specialist" who tells you how much safer their program is than the internet because they run background checks and you get a one on one personal dating representative to "work with you" based on the answers you put on a profile that you fill out before the interview.
the person interviewing me called herself, the "gate keeper" and that had to get through her in order to get "invited to join". Sounds impressive, huh? NOT! Its nothing more than a high pressure sales technique to make you believe that if you get invited you must be a great person to meet all of their "great" professional and educated members. When I asked how many members they have, she replied," oh, more that you will EVER want or need to meet" again, another rehearsed sales technique.
I was interrogated for almost 3 hours about my past marriage and my current job and salary. I was told at one time that she just didn't think I was "right" for her gentlement. what bull****!! I even at one point got up and told her I didn't appreciate her making me feel bad for being single at this point in my life and I was offended. Oh, let me tell you, they are good. She managed to reel my back in and after being very apologetic; I agreed to stay ( oh, how I wish I had kept on walking)
You are promised compatibtle matches and that you will get calls and guaranteed at least 6 dates a year. If you find "mr. Right", you can sell your membership and they will even help you.
I regret to admit that I joined at an expensive rate. I of course had buyers remorse afterwards and after looking at the contract realized there was no 72 hour clause for you to change your mind and that as soon as you accepted a name that sealed the deal!! Well, guess what. The very next day, I got a called with 2 names who sounded wonderful, so I thought maybe my remorse was premature and this was a valid service.
Ha! The men are not compatible at all and one guy told me he joined while he was still married ( so much for background checks, huh) the calls became fewer and far between and when I would call in to see why I haven't been called lately, I would be told, "these things take time", "let us get to know you beter, we will be able to match you better". Finally, it got to where the only time I would get a name is if I called in and was told, " oh, so glad you called, we have a name fore you" "we were going to call you, but you beat us to it"
I regret to say that I did not research them before I joined, and since then I have found so many very similiar stories on this website.
My mission now is to let as many people as possible what a scam it is!! This company preys on people at vulnerable times in their lives and have no conscious about taking your hard earned money.
