Amateur SCAM Internet
This site is a scam. Most of the profiles are not real. The profile pictures are created in photoshop. Messages sent to a phony profile receive an auto reply from a computer. I know this because the reply is always the same one or two lines with a web address to give your credit card to receive contact information for a person who does not exist. This essentially makes amateurmatch a cyber-pimp. DoNot send them any money. Like most similar sites, you can search for free but to send or read messages you need to join.I suggest turning the computer off & getting out to meet someone the oldfashioned way! Or at the very least go to a massage parlor or pay for a prostitute. I gurantee it will feel better than getting f***ed by Amateur Match!Zeith Portland, OregonU.S.A.

11:41 AM Flat out lied! Internet
I am new in my area and decided to try out and join I have used their competitior, eharmony, in the past and it was a rip-off. For the past week, daily I have received notices on my profile, that I could try the service for free for 3 days. When I attempted to do this I was not allowed to. Then when I called on the number that I was provided for them online, I was asked to sign up for the service and was told by the operator from that I would not be charged for the service until after the three day initial trial period had expired. I gave the telephone operator all of the pertinent info they needed for my credit card and asked them when this would be charged and was told once again at the end of the 3rd day. While on the phone with this operator I was informed that I had already used my 3 day trial. I informed the operator that I had not. I had only used my winks for free. They put me on hold for an extended amount of time and then came back and informed me that my credit card had been declined. They charged my credit card while I was on the phone with them, while telling me they would not charge it for 3 days. I informed the operator that I would report them to the ripoff report as they were misleading and flat out lying to their customers. By the way the catch to their guarantee is that you must email 5 different profiles every month and renew your membership at the end of a six month period in order to get your money back if your matches do not work out. What a RIP OFF!!!! They are just taking peoples monies while lying to them while they are on the phone with them. I was treading lightly about joining this process but had several of my friends do very well with and that is why I decided to do this. Never again! I should have read all of the reports about their service here. They are doing a bait and switch of sorts and lying about the way they do business. Anonymus Columbia, TennesseeU.S.A.

10:10 AM Deceptive Automatic Billing Policy Internet uses deceptive membership contracts. The accounts are automatically renewed unless the member requests a cancellation prior. However, when you look at your account information it says that the a package expires on a specific date which does not mean cancellation. They have a zero refund policy and should NOT be used. Try another, more truthful site. These people could care less about customers. In fact, they probably make all their money by this policy. DO NOT USE MATCH.COM New york, ny New York, New YorkU.S.A.

10:47 AM does NOT live up to FREE renewal promises Internet does not honor their free 6 month membership extension after you perform all the necessary requirements. I used this service when in Florida, and had to contact Customer Service to request the extension.  They eventually gave it to me. I moved to another state and started a new subscription, and just like the first time, after 6 months, the extension was not granted.  This time they locked me out and would not respond to 5 Customer Service requests to contact me.  They are a ripoff! This is false advertising!!!

07:01 AM Bait and Switch Internet
Seems that likes to pull the old Bait and Switch.  Did not want to sign up for the full membership, so I decided to try the Free 72 hours - however they still needed you to pay first.  Before I signed up I was receiving Winks from individuals that I might have been potentially interested in, but when I went to respond to the Winks their profiles were no longer available.  Nice going - I will be sure to tell anyone that considers your service to STAY AWAY

10:06 AM Auto Renewal Policy Dallas, Texas
Hello,I recently found out that $125.94 was taken from my checking account for auto-renewal for  I was unaware of this and now told that even though I have cancelled my subscription my money is not to be refunded.   I would like my money refunded as I believe this practice is unfair and perhaps illegal (they charged my account with out-dated information as well).  I have never dealt with a business that cannot refund a dissatisfied customer.  They were uncooperative and rude. I, myself work for a retail company where the customers satisfaction is of the utmost importance. is only interested in taking people's money and not helping them or making them happy in any way, shape or form.

11:17 AM dating web site Internet
most of the profiles on this site are fake, either they are just a total scam asking for money or they are computer generated profiles most likely created by the administrators of the web site itself just to get guys to join, they allow the scammers to send messages on just s 3 day trials and then they disaaper just to come online as someone else. %95 of the woman i contaced didnt even so much as look at my profile and never read the message i sent them, the only 'winks i would get were from woman who who were from new york or somewhere far away.  when i asked for my money back they said they couldnt because i has sent emails to other users, even though those users were all fake profiles. total rip off just all the other dating web sites. And anyone that you do happen to message back and forth will stop talking to you as soon as you bring up your concern about a scam becuase they get busted in it. i wish there was a way i could seek legal action against these frauds

03:20 PM SCAM-FAKE PROFILES Internet is a waste of your money.  You're better off meeting someone on the street.  I signed up, met a guy online, talked to him on the phone for 3 weeks, then he asked me for money and I called him on being a fraud and he stopped calling.  I reported him to and they did absolutely nothing!!  Turns out, after I researched his name and e-mail address he was based out of Nigeria!!!!!!!!!  Said he lived 4 hours away but he was actually in the UK!!!!!!  You would think would do a better job to at least research the e-mail address for people that contact them about fraud but they did nothing!!!!!  Love the commercials, that's how they draw you in but don't be fooled!  I wasted $59.99 but at least I was smart enough NOT to send someone I've never met $2,000...umph!

Millionaire The Cheap MillionaireMatch!! Internet
 Hello my Fellow Romantic Warriors! I took the bait..signed on to They offer a free enrollment. However in order to intelligently correspond with potential have to purchase a full privileged membership. They offer many month to ad infinitum. I bought one month and planned to leave after one month. Considering all the lofty endorsements they have racked up.. It should be a snap! After meeting that special lady.. I decided to leave the site.. I hid my profile.. very difficult to find the delete steps on website.. then... Surprise!! the one month became four months! with out my permission..authority or request..never implied stated. Also never received a confirmation other that the first notice of initial one month payment. Now the same trickery has been showered on my new mate.. The exact same overcharging. They refuse to cooperate. This company I have highly successful.. and now we know how they pad the books.. by overcharging and hoping a month extra here..two months won't notice or complain .. So finally, don't waste your money!

Used the service for two days and paid $139.00 for 6 months which was the only option. Wasn't satisfied and called for a refund, they would not give it to me. Poor customer service. They should give refunds if people are nit satisfied. The quality of people were poor and a lot of them are not serious and are only picture collectors.

I would like to add my unauthorized billing complaint against MATCH.COM to the others here like it. In July 2004 I signed up for one month's membership. I cancelled in accordance with the published procedure, yet was billed for the next 4 months, despite my repeating the cancellation process and despite my writing several emails (which were never acknowledged). I finally had to cancel the VISA card. This company is run by THIEVES and they should be in jail. Steve toronto, OntarioCanada

01:59 PM dishonest fraud fake emails ripoff Internet
I let my membership expire this summer after one year on the website. Match asked the reason I was leaving and I answered that I was not getting any e-mail response from the men I was interested in. Shortly after I got an email saying that I had a letter in my mailbox from someone interested in me and I had to rejoin to read it. I decided to try it again and the e-mail was supposedly from someone over 1500 miles away. When I put the person's screenname in the search box it said there was no such account. I know that this letter came from someone inside the company and it was all a scam to get me to rejoin. D Fort Worth, TexasU.S.A.

11:28 AM ripoff Nationwide
When I tried to cancel, 2 days after being auto billed for a six months subscription, they refused. I insisted and would not take no for an answer. Then they relented and refunded all but one month of service (which of course, is way more per month than the 6 month plan). I contacted the Attorney General in Minnesota (my home state) and ended up refunding all my money. Contact your Attorney General and your local news. I did and I won.

MATCH.COM Ripoff Billing Scam ONLINE NATIONWIDE obviously never heard of the phrase The customer is always right. They do not clearly disclose when you pay for a subscription that your account will continue to be automatically renewed UNTIL you pick up the phone to cancel the subscription. They sell packages of 1, 3 or 12 month memberships. But what is the purpose of a 1-month membership when they keep automatically renewing and charging your credit card??? I paid for 1 month thinking my account would expire after one month. WRONG! As a courtesy they felt obliged to keep charging my account!!!! This should be illegal!!!! Alicia naples, FloridaU.S.A.

03:46 PM ripoff Merrick, New York
I received a letter from Offer 2003, which is supposed to give me a choice of a refund or a three month free subscription for erroneous billing. However, when I followed the procedure outlined in the letter to get the three month subscription with no obligation to me, they emailed me telling me that my profile has been approved and included links that take me to the subscription page. I have to then enter my credit card information for the three month free offer without any obligation subscription. I have emailed them on three occassions to let them know that I only want what is stated in the June 8, 2006 letter, which clearly states there is no obligation to me, but they refuse to acknowledge the offer letter. I even called customer support and I was told that they did not know what I was talking about. If you have received this letter and have followed the procedure outlined in the letter, please respond.

I wnt to bank with information and filled out affidavit as to unauthorized charge and got my money in 3 days. Jokes on you Match. I also canceled that card and got new one. Well 5 months later there is charging my new card, which they had no information on, I also reporterd this to bank and got the chrges reversed. So who gave them my new info?

Again another company that takes your money without notifying you that your subscription is about to expire. They expect you to log on everyweek to check your account but most of us do not have time to do that. Like myself I have just enough time to check emails.

01:52 PM Unauthorised transactions on my bank account Internet continue to bill my bank account despite that fact I have not used thier site for months. If you use this service make sure you read the terms and conditions. The agreement is that you will have an automatic renewal even if you no longer use the service, have not got an active account and have not used the site for some time. I spoke to custmer services about a refund because I was clearly not using thier service neither had I given them permission to deduct money from my account. The refused to give me a refund. I would suggest that this company are far too irresponsible with finacial data to do business with. Based on the reports filed here I am not alone. The company are very happy to hide behind the small print in their terms and conditions rather than behave in a responsible way towards people who use thier site. Do not use this service unless you are happy to be billed long after you ever wanted to be. Nic Seattle, WashingtonU.S.A.

10:08 AM auto renewal scam Internet did an auto renewal on my account for 6 months without notifying me before or after they charged it.  I hadn't used my account for over two months and had forgot to cancel it.  I called 3 days after they charged my credit card for the renewal and they were refusing to refund my money for the six month period of $110.  I quoted the New York's General Obligations Law 5-903 to them and asked if their supervisor was aware of this law (I live in New York)  This statute requires that a vendor in any service, maintenance or repair contract with an auto renewal clause give its customer written notice of an auto- renewal at least 15 days, but not more than 30 days, before the cancelation deadline; otherwise, the auto-renewal provision is deemed unenforceable. After I quoted this law they promptly changed their story and told me they would issue a refund. should be sending notifications of upcoming charges to ensure that their policies are ethical and legal.  Hope this information helps someone else avoid their auto renewal scam policies.

I bought a 3-month membership. I stated on my profile, Photos only, no motorcycles. Don't camp. I didn't check off camping as an activity. The stir - it said for members and it was misleading; it seemed free but they charge for every event! I got motorcycle, camping - no photos as many of my matches they matched me up with. I called them after the first month to cancel. They said that because I responded to one email, they refused to give me back my money! I responded to a guy that wrote something x rated and felt he should know that he will be reported and he has a fake profile (good honest sweet man)!

07:12 AM Automatic renewal without notification Internet has in its agreement (so they claim and I'm sure it's true) that they will automatically renew (and take money using the credit card number that they apparently retained) unless the customrer cancels.  Very well; however, they never send even one warning that the subscription is about to expire.  It seems that it can't be legal for them to take another chunk of money from me at the end of one contract without notifying me that they will do it unless I forbid them.  An expiration date means expiration of a contract.  There is nothing beyond expiration unless I agree to a renewal of the contract.
