09:55 PM Beware of Internet
My daughter,  20 years old, signed up for with my credit card with my permission. It stated that there was a money back guarantee. I did not see anyplace where it stated that after 6 months I would be charged again. It must have been very small print.Last week I saw on my statement that I was being charged again. I called and I asked for the charges to be credited, my daughter did not meet one person. I was told no. I asked for the charges to be, at least, prorated. I was 2 days into the next 6 months. I was told no. I asked to talk to the supervisor and she said the same thing. Nobody at cares at all.I reported them to the BBB. They do not have a rating with them, but I received no results. I am trying to fight this with my credit card company and am disputing it.They should at least prorate the charge!!!

04:28 PM supports Nigerian scammers Dallas, Texas
I signed on to Saturday afternoon and paid my $66.00.  I went on this site because it is a paid site for dating, it's not free.  I thought this would make the site safer then free dating sites.My very first reply was from a Nigerian scammer.  He asked me to chat on yahoo and I saw him on webcam.  He confessed he is a scammer and used a credit card to go on  I called and requested a refund.  I was denied.  I spoke to a manager, I was denied a refund even though I was on for only maybe 90 minutes.   Well, thought I would give it another try since they would not refund me not even 2 out of the 3 months I paid in advance.I have been contacted by at least 4-5 scammers in a 24 hour period of time.  I have saved messages and Nigerian calls on my phone from these scammers. does nothing to protect their customers and didn't even ask for the scammers id's. I have paid 2 requests for a full refund.  They will not refund my money and take stolen credit cards from Nigeria to let these scammers come on with fake profile pictures. You are not safe on and don't care how many scammers are on the site as long as they get their money.  Millions of dollars are stolen from Americans each year by Nigerian scammers and this has to stop.  Many innocent women fall victim all out of the name of love and does nothing about it. is a waste of money and time.  I have spent my last 24 hours filtering out these scammers and calling with absolutely no help or care. Don't believe their commercials.  Most of the men are Nigerian scammers stealing pictures of innocent people and trying to get at your money and is assisting them.

02:24 PM Bogus 6 month guarantee Internet
 I joined last month.  I did everything necessary to fulfill my 6 month guarantee.  A number of times when I went on the site I saw that my profile was hidden (even though I Never Hid It!)  Their website claimed I had done everything to fulfill my 6 month guarantee in month 1 and now, suddenly in month 2, the 4 requirements changed from all green checkmarks to 1 red - concerning my profile photo.  I contacted Match and they asked if I had ever changed my photo.  I told them No.  Then they tried to pressure me into reupping for an automatic 6 month renewal on my credit card.  I said No.  I told 2 different people (1 was a supervisor) about Match hiding my profile.  Now, lo and behold, I don't qualify for the 6 month guarantee because I hid my profile.  I insisted I never did - Match did and I kept having to unhide it.  This is a dishonest company.  They send fake winks and communication.  I started contacting people who supposedly winked at me or liked me or whatever and they claim that, not only had they not done so, but Match claimed I initiated contact!  So many profiles are fake and/or scammers and Match will do anything to get out of that 6 month guarantee.  I contacted their Customer Service and mid conversation (and I was being calm and respectful) they just purposely disconnected.  Stay away from this company.  They waste your time and money.  Stay away from their sister company,, too.  They are even more dishonest.

07:28 PM and Switch Internet
 I have been a subscriber off and on for 2 yrs. for about 2 yrs. Now, after my last stint with them I realize why I kept going back for more of nothing-they use Bait and Switch tactics. I have been a paid subscriber for the last 6 months and received 6 emails or winks in that whole time. As soon as my subscription expired, I started receiving all kinds of interest-I have received more than 30 emails or winks in the last 30 days. But, of course, I am no longer a paying customer so I can't read the emails and whomever the paying customer is that is trying to communicate with me has no idea they are trying to contact someone who can't read their emails! Why is my profile still available to paying customers?? They can't get in touch with me. These are classic Bait ansd Switch tactics. Not only was I ripped-off (I wonder why I didn't receive all this interest when I was a paid subscriber) but the paying customer that is trying to reach me is being ripped-off. Stay away from these crooks. And the worst thing is-they get by with it.

I am a 69 year old white male seekingt the same. The matches they sent me had nothiing to do with my profile and included women of various races and no small number of very young women.  When I did find one or two women that were a match I attempted to send a meeting letter. When you try to send it you get a series of pop-ups telling you to buy an upgrade.   After several such attempts I called Match.for a refund. I noted that I was certainily willingto pay for the first month but that I would lke a refund for the remaining two. The agent was clearly trained to handle such calls. Clearly,, I was not alone with such a request.  I have heard since that people end up spending quite a considerable amount, even to 1,000. to find someone on Match.

10:02 AM is the biggest rip off in internet history Internet
First you waste like over 30 minutes of your life filling information and private data about yourself, for this fraudulent crackpot website. Second, u click the finish button, which will label you officially as: a potential internet fraud victim. U can't check emails that have been sent to you, unless u pay them the 30 $ fee, and this is only the start. the subscription gets renewed automatically. steals your money from you without knowing it. and deactivating this automatic subscription system is not something to be trifled with! because it's sooooooo complicated, once ure in, you can never get out. even if you cancel your subscription, they will still charge u by the first of each month in some way or another, try to rise a complaint and you will never get any refund back. they will assume that you took advantage of the service and sent and received emails from desperate people like you, a case strong enough to walk you out with empty hands. The emails you get when ure not yet a subscriber are fraudulent and a scam, they're not REAL emails from REAL PEOPLE. they're just generated by a software bot.. placed there to use you emotionally and to give you that itchy feeling of subscribing to know who the sender was. even after u pay them and become an official idiot, you're no more than a loser who's paying his hard earned cash for an electronic wink? over 85 % of people subscribed in don't pay for a subscription, the other 15 % live 200 miles away from u, and i can certainly relate to that. the only thing women can do on is to send you winks. if you're a subscriber, you can send an email back to each wink u receive, but the girl who sent u teh wink cannot read your emails! because she didn't pay for the service! she's only a promoter for the website. she's just there as a bate, the only thing she can do is to send you winks. she can't read your emails, and thus you can't pass your phone number or email to her in any way imaginable! u can only send a wink back to her, so that your wink and hers can make love together. how inclusive! u want to find somebody interesting? go to a pub, find yourself a nice girl, smile at her, and tell her: just wanted to let you know that i find you gorgeous! that's it :) no complications.. no stupid winks.. not even pick up lines to memorize. 95 % of them will reply with something like: ohh thank u, that's so sweet of you, what's your name again? and that's it. at least u won't be shocked by her 300 pounds weight, it happens in most of blind dates. most of them women on dating website deliberately don't show their whole body. just the upper half lol. man! this is crazy.

03:17 PM lacks integrity and horrible customer service Nationwide
After being with for 7 months, I've learned and realized their business lacks integrity and definitely don't care about its customers and cares only about revenue. Ironically, is a company that's suppose to HELP people find love, and yet its not a people-oriented company at all! automatically renewed my 6-months subscription with my consent. When I found out, they told me user can choose not to select automatic-renewal option. So basically, by default, when you first sign up to, the option of 6-month automatical renew is setup in your account. As a user, you're not aware you had this choice until Match has already charged your credit card. The CORRECTt business practice would have been: 1) By default, assign non-automatical renew for each user's setting. 2) When 6-months membership is about to expire, should send an automatic email to its customer informing them their membership has expired and request customers to renew again. Also, apparently as I found out today, if you don't find a match within the first 6-months of subscription, you have 30 days to call Match and they will give you next 6 months for free. If you tell them after 30-days, it's too late and you will be charged for the 6-month description. WHY ARE USERS NOT INFORMED ABOUT THIS? So here I am, having been forced to continue another 6-months of membership with no option out. I feel that it is so unjust and unfair for to do this to all of its customers. For all those out there, please don't go thru the mistake I went through.

DO NOT use this site or give them your billing info. Google is your Friend. They offer a free 7 day trial then offer you 25 percent off if you decide to stay after the trial. They charge you and claim you cant use both offers BUT the web site does not state that. I recorded a conversation in which they openly admitted this. ( with permission no less!) Many people have reported they auto renew and continue to charge you after the initial period . They offer no refunds and customer service reps read from a script and are very rude contradicting each other. Most of the profiles are non paying members or fakes who can not read, view or reply to anything you send them. More misleading info. There is also no way to block scammers. stalkers, fakes either as they can still see you and track your every move. Consumer fraud and someone needs to address!

Once you mention to that you never received one, they will tell you that there is nothing that they can do about getting you back your money.   If the company is this desparate for business, then they must be uncutting services in other areas of the website.

Little did I know, the steps I followed did not go through properly and did not produce a confirmation number. I called customer service and they say they cannot issue me a full refund because I used the service and that the system at is set up so that it does not issue any refund at all. Not only that, one of their staff, Luis, employee number 1146, gave me an ultimatum of either receiving a prorated refund or no refund at all. How rude is that? Another Employee I spoke to, Enrique, he is without employee ID currently, gave me the same treatment and the same excuse about the full refund.

MY minor child accidently filled out a form online, thinking he was going to get ringtones, but instead it is, and they are charging his cell phone ,fees. Since this is a pay by minute phone, he has been left with 0 minutes on several occasions. They dont care how much is on the phone in Minute-Dollar amounts, they just send a text ( which you dont have to respond too) and snacth whatever money you have loaded onto the phone. I have called several times and they claim to not be able to find the account, not even using the cell phone number. MY minor child cant remember the username or password, he used, so I am unable to go online to look it up to cancel. Strange how, cant locate the account using the cell phone number, since they send text messeging to it, advising him they are taking his funds off the phone. The customer rep was so rude to me the first time,cutting me off, raising her voice, not listening to my reason for calling. When I hung up the phone, I had to regroup, I felt as if I had been assaulted by a stranger. I do wonder how many others are victim of this same situation, and I am at lost as to how to get this to stop and get a refund. We are affraid to put more minutes on the phone, for fear they will snatch them off, and beleive me, he is doing no internet, cell phone dating. Shame on them, for not helping me, and forcing me to file this complaint. Since this involves a minor child, there may be ohter recourses I can take. We'll See Viafree cleveland, OhioU.S.A.
