Scam Dating Service
Posted by Rightjackson on 10/30/2008
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.

While all dating services seem to pretty much over-hype their "systems" of matching, the actor twist here is a new one to me. What evidence do you have that actors are hired by this firm. That would be a case IMO of unfair business practices and grounds for an investigation.

Slim, I actually have a socially awkward friend that used several free and paid dating services. The only matches that they set up, ummmmmmm (how do I put this?), wanted money in exchange for 'dating'.

I don't think that's much of a stretch from 'actor'. They are being paid too, right?

if you got to pay for a match, then you are not really looking. destiny plays some part here.

No Real Dates

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!!!

Quit spending time online and get yourself involved in something, like a class or club. I met one of my boyfriend's at the library

My coworker met her husband at HEB. I met my bf at a club. There's all kinds of places to meet people. Just put yourself out there instead of doing it through dating sites. It's a lot less expensive that way, too.

lol I got profiles on Eharmony, match, and some other ones just to fck around and see who I find. They are total scams they send bots to lure you in so you can upgrade to their crummy subscription.

No one, they send these fake brods after you. They send you little kinky messages with fake pictures. Then when you sign up they stop having contact with you. They are all bait and switch BS.
