Allied Network — Soulless criminals!
SCAMMERS - who prey on lonely, single people - the worse kind of criminals. I'm a single, upwardly mobile, business executive. I spend a lot of time traveling and thus its hard to meet people. I was getting bored with the bar scene and saw a TV ad from 'Ontario's oldest and best dating agency - The Allied Network'. So I thought I would check it out.
I called the number listed and was put on the line with a very smooth talking Ms. Luci Parker, a 'consultant', who insisted I come in to meet with her. When I attended a meeting at a downtown office, Ms. Parker repeatedly assured me, that the type of partner that I was seeking, - namely, a 30-35 year old, attractive, intelligent and educated woman, was highly available in the hundreds of ready and willing female Allied members. Ms. Parker also guaranteed that I would have absolutely no-problem meeting the woman of my dreams based on these attributes. She told me that I was 'an ideal candidate and a great catch' and assured me that this type of introduction would happen within weeks.
Based on representations and promises made to me by Ms. Parker as to the type, availability and age of female members who would be introduced to me, I joined the Allied Network in August 2004. As it turns out all of the representations and promises made to me were false.
After being forced to pay an expensive membership fee ($5,300.00), I was turned over to the matching department (a completely different group), who told me the exact opposite, that I was told old to meet someone like the members Ms. Parker had promised and that they would try to find someone of their choosing that would be more suitable. I was shocked and outraged.
Ms. Parker committed a Fraudulent Misrepresentation, in knowingly and wantonly lying to me about the type, age and availability of female members that you were going to introduce to me in an effort to induce to join their membership and immediately pay a huge fee. Their own Matching Dept confirmed this in October 2004, when one of the employees told me that she could not think of any members (out of the alleged hundreds) who would want to meet me based on the specifics that Ms. Parker had promised. To this date, almost 4 years later, not one of the promised introductions has occurred.
