SAUSALITO, CALIFORNIA -- Kelleher & Associates is an utter scam. They advertise upscale dating services for affluent singles. What they promise is matchmaking through a "proprietary" system. What they deliver is fraud. After hooking you in with their advertising, high pressure saleswomen convince you to purchase a one year or 18 month membership that is payable upfront. Then, they will interview you and match you with other singles from their database that closely resembles your profile. The fees are anywhere from $6,000 to $10,000 for the membership. Then, they just randomly assign you a name every few months and make no real effort to find you a person who matches your personality. After all, they have no real incentive to do their job well, they already have your money.
However, a few months before your membership is up, they send you on a date with an actor who will say what you want to hear, and although they won't go on a second date with you, it gives you the impression that the system does indeed work, so then you sign up for another year.
That's all they're doing is whatever it takes to get you to keep paying. This is obviously fraud and these scam artists should be shut down.

DALLAS, TEXAS -- I agree with the other review. This business is a scam. They do promise to introduce you to upscale singles that have your same interests. I also feel they send you a name randomly. The only times I received a match was if I called and asked why I wasn't being matched up. A few days later they would call and give me a name. I only met two people. Neither of which I had anything in common with. They have not interest in finding you a match. They just want your money. Don't fall for this scam!!!
