Yahoo.com Personals Complaint - Got ripped off by yahoo

Review by fenders on 2007-02-24
This month I joined the yahoo.con personals site and paid my $24.95 . This was on the 21st. When I try to view profiles or e-mail people they tell me I have to sign up first, which is another $24.95.

When I asked for a refund they tell me I'm not in the service.

I've lost more money before but I just want to warn other of this. For $24.95 all I could do was window shop until I spent more yet.

I've checked and Match.com is much better a much cheaper. For $24.95 you have all options.

Call your credit card company to dispute the charge. You only lost the money if you do not attempt to get it back.

Have you ever considered your local newspaper?? Alot of newspapers run personal ads for free, and you can browse them without having to pay a monthly fee. My neighbor met her husband that way. You could give that a try.

Go to a nightclub, the library, jobsite, your friend's friend, school, a church, or supermarket to stir up a friendship and best of all its FREE!

Go to Craigslist.com, it's free too, it's also a good way to sell stuff for free.

MRM..I like your suggestion. Much cheaper and so much more intimate! I met my husband at a cafe. Imagine that.

It's Fenders again. yahoo refunded my money. By the way, I met my first three wives in bars. I'm NOT doing that again,don't drink anymore either,

I've never had any luck with online dating, but it isn't necessarily for losers folks. Plenty of people have met their matches online.

I don't drink, or go to bars either, so it makes it difficult to meet someone when you don't.
