Singlesnet.com Complaint - Deceptive Dating/Matching Practices
It is important to note that I am not computer literate. I am 63 and the first time I ever placed my fingers on a computer keyboard was on 12-26-2010.The first time I subscribed to Singlesnet was on 4-14-2011.I am a prime target for an online dating service like Singlesnet to perportrate a deceptive practice against in order to keep taking my money. It took me almost all of this subscription period to figure out this scam. They have the system programmed where, if a person intentionally or inadvertently views your profile, Singlesnet wants to keep you on the 'hook' by informing you that 'someone is interested in you" and that you should,"go ahead and reach out to" that person, when in reality that person on the other end has no interest in you at all. This tactic is used to build your morale, your confidence and the excitement and hope, that the next one will be 'THE ONE'.If someone is genuinely interested in you after viewing your photos and profile on the first or certainly the second pass, it is my firm belief that the individual would indeed write immediately to let you know of their interest. It wasn't until 5-7-2011 that a woman in a state different from mine actually took time out to inform me that she had no interest in corresponding with me and that she had only took a breif moment to "read" my written profile. I hope that this complaint will help to force some changes in the way Singlesnet does it's business. Thank you, Lynelle Nowlin.
