JDATE.  www.jdate.com

Scam reports (high): Cheating the public.

Focus: Internet Dating


Jdate is not only a scam, but also a successful one. Why? Because an unsuspecting single Jewish woman can log in, create a profile, and leave, thinking that shell be contacted by other Jewish men.  

The real scam here is that she wont be.

Unless shes ready to give out her credit card number online, (which more than 80% of women on Jdate wont do a dirty secret that Jdate administrators wont admit either), then you wont be able to contact her, and she wont be able to contact you.

The entire website has been carefully designed to appear under the guise of legitimacy, but it is a well thought-out trick to make lots of Jewish singles lose their money, particularly men, since theyre the ones who usually believe in initiating the first contact.

I personally signed up to use this service, and I was cheated.  My writeup was removed after having paid the monthly subscription fee.  Details in my online profile were altered.  When I wrote the administrators an e-mail, they made either ridiculous justifications to my complaints, or they simple didn't address my concerns at all.

I am working with others to formulate a class-action lawsuit against Jdate / Spark Networks LLC.

Cancelling this service is very difficult.  They attempted (but were unsuccessful, thanks to me) to continuously bill my credit card, even after I wrote several emails asking them to close my account BEFORE THE END OF MY MEMBERSHIP.

Youll pay an exorbitantly high fee per month, which still wont allow you to contact any of the non-paying members (again, for men it's horrible: more than 80% of the female user base cannot be reached).

Stay away from this site The reason its still around is because not enough people are reading reviews before signing up.

You should know by now, Jdate isn't in the business of finding soulmates; they're in the business of finding suckers.  If anything, they're making YOU pay THEM to put YOUR picture to advertise THEIR scheme, very nasty if you ask me.

Do the world a favor.  Avoid these crooks.  This article may be reprinted, without permission of the author.

AUTHOR: Ross - ()

Just to make a point - the freemium model, is rampant in the online dating industry. In short, only a small percentage of members pay (Spark Networks called them "Subscribers" whereas the non-paying members are called "Members.") Match.com, eHarmony, and others do the exact same thing.

So, if you're going to sue them, you might as well sue everyone in the industry with a paid component to their site.
