The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Maureen Tara Nelson during an onsite inspection held by a third-party verification company with no biases towards MTN Matchmaking.
MTN Matchmaking is a matchmaking service that is dedicated to helping people find a healthy and lasting relationship. Maureen Tara Nelson stated the following about her company, "We have a very thorough screening process we are not for everyone. And I can’t accept everyone because if I did I would be like the other companies that have been out there that have all gone out of business for doing the wrong thing. My model is to do a criminal felony background check in every state on all of my clients. Then as the owner, they come to me and meet with me personally and I give them a free consultation because I need to make sure that I think I can help them. The screening process when I meet with them I make sure that everyone is a nice decent, quality, positive person, emotionally stable. I am an executive level certified matchmaker and there are only a few of us in the country."
Leads for MTN Matchmaking are primarily obtained through television appearances on NBC, CBS, HBO, and A&E. Additionally, they advertise through print, commercials, and social media. Ms. Nelson proceeded to explain the sales and services process for her clients, "What a client can expect is a free consultation where I go through the screening process with them. Then they come in and I have to get to know their personality to the point that I am matching them with 3 parts of compatibility. This is my own private method I do it by hand I don't do it by a computer algorithm. On the interview, they will know about the screening process and how I do the matching by 3 parts of compatibility. They also have homework to do before they come in they have to think about what their 5 best qualities are. Then they have to think of what the 5 must haves are for the man or woman. They are also asked to wear something nice because if they like the program I will take their photo. So, I meet with them for an hour but the longest interview I have had was 4 hours because sometimes. I do a tiny personality test at my home office. Everyone leaves here with a packet that goes over all the information of what we go over here. They get a welcome letter, they get a letter on what to expect as a client and the most important thing is a list of do’s and don't s in dating. Then once they tell me Yes I love the program then we go over the different program. I have 5 programs for them to choose from ranging in price from $995 up to a celebrity program as well. If a person is celebrity lives here on Long Island my prices are $6500 which may seem like a lot to a person who is an accountant let's say but they won't pay that unless they are a celebrity. And then I go into how it works. If a person is compatible in 3 ways as well as having the 5 must-haves they will get an email on Tuesday evenings with the person's photo and a little bio about them and their only job is to say yes or no."
CUSTOMER CARE & COMPLAINT RESOLUTION – MTN MATCHMAKING
MTN Matchmaking was asked to describe a situation where a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received. Ms. Nelson explained that there are no guarantees in the matchmaking world. She additionally stated, "I will always do my best I will match you appropriately and make sure they have your 5 must haves but there are things I do not have control over. I do not have control over if a woman or man say yes to each other. I don't have control over if you go out on a date with a man and you are very nasty to the wait staff. Those are on you and those are the ones that complain. I bring them back to the point of what it was like to date without Maureen? So with people, there are times that they come in and they are unhappy. If they tell me about it soon I can fix it but there are some people that they came in acting positively and they were not. I can’t help people like that. If they are patient, open-minded, and positive I can help them."
When asked to comment on complaints posted on Ripoff Report's website Ms. Nelson expressed that the comments made were false and didn't align with her business model. Ms. Nelson stated the follow to assure future and current clients, "I am an executive level certified matchmaker and there are only a few of us in the country and that is through the Institute of Matchmaking. Then they will see every year we win Dan’s papers which is primarily Suffolk county here on Long Island for best dating service. What they factor in is Match.com and every kind of dating service out there. These awards are people that vote in. I am up against Tinder and all those swipe apps. For Nassau and Suffolk county combined there is the biggest award for every business owner. I think there are 3000 categories of businesses. What they do is they pick the top 3 that people vote in for. Every year I have come in the top 3. We were just notified this year that we came in first place. We are super excited because that is huge! I have citations from controllers on long island...the politicians...the county clerks. They can't be bought off and these are people in the community that have said hey there is a matchmaker here on Long Island who goes above and beyond for her clients and has given me awards. I have an A+ rating with the BBB. I am also a certified wedding officiant."
MTN Matchmaking is proud to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program. Ms. Nelson stated the following, "I am honored because I couldn’t love what I do more. I am very blessed with what I do and with your program, you are giving me a chance to speak from my heart about what I do for my clients. Those few in owning my business for 12 years is a great record in the scheme of things but it is still too many for me. I work hard to make my clients happy and successful because our clients are family to us. I think that you are going to be able to be my voice and say we know this person and she only have love in her heart. I know that every day I do everything that I can do for my clients. So I don't know of anything more I could do for my clients. I love what I do. I hope that I am honored that you have this so that you can help me spread that positivity.

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
Maureen Tara Nelson Private Matchmaking Melville New York
(Female late 20's) I signed up a few years ago because I saw her ad and had she had been voted "Best of Long Island." I think she is voted that because she is pretty much the only matchmaking service on LI. Oh, and also because when you go to her mixers (which you have to pay extra for) she announces that if you put in your vote online, she will give a voucher for a free drink, so thats how she gets all her clients to vote for her. Talk about buying votes. Wow.
She assured me that she had well over 1,000 success stories and even showed me a huge binder full of attractive single men. All of the pictures were of the men outside, in their house, out to dinner, etc. When she finally started matching me, all of the people she sent me had ONE picture, taken in her office with a VERY BRIEF description of them. When I signed up, I told her I was not very picky, that I just wanted someone that was at least 5'9 (Im 5'9) and that I like to date within my race. I was willing to date a man who was divorced, had children, was a little overweight etc. So she sends me a guy who is not of my race and is 5'7. Are you kidding me? With all her thousands of clients, that's what she comes up with? You would think rule #1 would be to stick with the person's must-haves, have-nots.
She was so excited to sign me up ($800+ for 5 matches) because she said I would be so easily matched. I did get sent one match about once a week. I would say yes to a lot of them and then she would say "sorry he's not interested", "sorry he doesnt like your hair color" (!!!that one was the best LOL) or "well they are new and havent completed the background check yet" Why would you send me a match that isnt ready to be matched? Or match me with a guy who doesnt want to date someone with my hair color??? She would never re-match me once his background check was complete. I would ask her "what happened to that guy" and there would always be some sort of stupid answer "oh, he decided to put his membership on hold". Ughhhh Then she started sending me pictures that were not taken in her office (even though she claims she meets with every client personally - I call BS) I would not be surprised if she gets these pictures off the internet, LOL.
The mixers were a mess. I am not exaggerating when I say that EVERY client of hers that I spoke to at her parties had the SAME complaints. She did not have any ice breakers or anything, which would have been nice. I was always the youngest one there. The average age was probably 50. The best part of the night was exchanging horror stories with the other clients. There was supposed to be one mixer per month but about every other month she would say "since its the holidays (or whatever excuse) and everyone tends to be busy this time of year, we wont be having a party this month." Ridiculous
I went on maybe 3 dates. I finally complained to her and she offered to give me an extra 3 months or something like that. I accepted, hoping for the best, then after more nonsense I told her I am done and want no part of this service and what a waste of time and money it was.
