Actually email correspondence with match.com:
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
Thank you for resolving this issue. The representative I spoke with was
extremely polite and helpful.

Subject: Fraudulent guarantee
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.
