SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- Don't fall for this companies lies! I was really excited meeting some great guys after my divorce. I was looking at the other online dating sites and put my profile into one of the major companies data base.
I was surprised when I got a call from the "Ideal Match". I didn't recall contacting them but I thought I must have. I listened to their pitch on the phone to come in for an interview. I asked about the price and the person wouldn't give me details at that time but said that I would get all that information when I came in.

After getting the sales pitch from one of the "matchmakers" They dropped the bomb of the price. It was $10,000 for the premium membership which I told the woman no way could I pay that. She did eventually talk me in to spending $5,000 which included a special "personal assistant" that would handle my membership personally and any other staff members that wanted to match me would have to go through her first.

I fell for it all I'm sorry to say. When I did get a date I found out from my date that he wasn't even a paying member! He was trading his services as a carpenter for the dating service! I don't even know if this person had a background check done, which is what they told me was one of the features of their membership. I was so upset, They could have introduced me to any random person off the street and it would have been the same. I had all this money invested in this membership and this was the service I was getting!

I complained to my "personal assistant" via email and never got a response. I emailed again and she finally called me back and said she was so busy and was working on getting me matches. The more I thought about it the more upset I got. I emailed and asked for a refund, which was refused of course. Its been months and I haven't heard a word from them. I'm hoping I will be able to get my money back by hiring a lawyer. Learn from my very expensive lesson. DON'T DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY!
