Match.com / bad service

Dallas, TX, United States Review updated:
I did not order this service.

I am a senior citizen and on a limited.

Funds. I found someone had used my debit card and called my bank to stop payment. I then called the company to see whos e-mail was the one they used.

They would not give it to me. So I could report this as a fraud. I will my bank so they cannot charge me again. As I see the number of complaints against this company. Nothing is being done to stop them. They are just stealing. I am going to report them to the better business bureau.

Actually email correspondence with match.com:

Dear sirs,

I reached a customer service representative by the name of Robert and with the

approval of his supervisor. He informed me that they would correct the error and

I would receive my next 6 months free as promised with my new expiration date

being 21Mar2008.

Thank you for resolving this issue. The representative I spoke with was

extremely polite and helpful.

Subject: Fraudulent guarantee

Dear sirs,

It has come to my attention based on the email I received from you employee that

your 6 month guarantee is fraudulent. Not only have I had numerous memberships

with match, I did qualify for the free six months. On 13Sep2008, I attempted to

accept the free 6 months. The question is worded awkwardly on purpose I imagine

so to ensure the possibility of striking the wrong key (yes or no). When I

realized I had accidentally made the incorrect keystroke. I contacted match

immediately via email on the same day to inform them of this, clarify that I had

not met anyone in 6 months, and request the free 6 months I had earned according

to match.com's guidelines. I was refused. Cleary this action is fraudulent and

clearly when you check you records, you will find that I earned my free 6

months, and you will correct the problem and give me my free six monthx.

Otherwise I will feel it is necessary to contacti the attorney general's office

and my legal council.

Thank you for your time.

No I did not decline! I told you I accidentally hit the wrong button. I

contacted you immediately after on the same day it occured. What part of I did

not meet anyone special in 6 months did you not understand? This is very poor

practice and does not follow your terms. Should I make a formal complaint to the

better business bureau or who should I make a formal complaint to. WHo is your

manager. This is not an appropriate way to do business. I expect to be contacted

by someone who can resolve this issue!

I qualified for the six month guarantee but I think I accidentally hit the wrong

button. Could you check for me? I did not meet anyone special in 6 months and

would like to receive my free 6 months.

Thank you.

Doen anyone have a customer seervice number for these ###s? They are extremely fraudulent and once they get your credit card number they will charge you fo ever no matter what. I am at the verge of cancelling my crtedit card just to somehow get out of this.

Match.com is a scam.

I worked for Match.com about a year ago. Your complaint appears to be one that I have heard numerous times, but the fruad is not on the part of Match.com. Nigerians, as well as other scam artist's somehow get a hold of your credit card information and open accounts with Match.com in order to scam other members. I used to take about 20 complaints a day as well as calls from the Nigerians themselves trying to open accounts with Match.com. Match.com does take these complaints seriously. They immediately shut down any profile that is being investigated as fruad. They also have a special team to investigate and help crack down on these scams. Chances are your charge card was used by a Nigerian to open an account to scam other memebrs out of money. Match.com will refund your bank promptly in that event. The customer service reps hear that complaint on a daily basis, and they do forward cases of fraud to their investigation team. Hopefully your bank closed your charge card account and issued another card with a new number. Be very careful when making online purchases, as well as in stores.
