Together Dating Service / Fraudulent company

My story is practically the same verbatim as the testimonies below on this page. I saw a sign on the side of the road listed as ShavanoParkSingle.com and was lured in. I was met by a woman who looked like someone I would hang out with, related to me like a girlfriend, and completely seemed to 'understand' who I am and what I am looking for. She proceeded the sales pitch by promising that there are thousands of busy professionals, just like myself, as clients. After a two hour interview, I was confident and excited about the prospect of what was to come.

Sadly, and much to my surprise, I was delivered with 'matches' that couldn't be less appropriate for me. After the third, I quickly realized that the 'matchmaking' wasn't being conducted the way I was promised (and sold).

As fate would have it, I serendipitously ran into the sales woman who sold me the package in my hometown 300 miles away during the Christmas holidays. After I approached her, she offered to help me get my money back since I hadn't physically met anyone. When I called her after I was back in San Antonio, she gave me the run around. I attempted to speak to management, but I was rebuffed. When speaking with an account rep, I relayed my concerns and disappointment in the service. Because I signed this airtight agreement, I will be charged for the duration of my 'contract'.

I simply don't think that I should have to 'eat' these large monthly transactions because I 'fell for' the sales pitch. Together must take responsibility for their actions and not delivering what was promised.

    i got scammed by Together in 1997, here in Albany, NY. There was an article written about them in 1998 in the local paper. And yet, over a DECADE later, they are still in business scamming people? What the hell?

    I too was a victim of Together Dating. After being talked into joining, promising that this was, "An investment in my future", I joined . Expecting to meet someone who had similar interests, goals, standards etc etc, they proceeded in sending me people with whom I had no common interests, bad hygiene, substance abuse issues etc etc. I was actually introduced to people I specifically said I did not want to date! What a waste of my hard earned money. After 14 dates ( I try to give people a chance) and many I turned down just from chatting on the phone with, there wasn't one person that even came close to what I am looking for in a partner. If I sound picky, yes maybe wanting someone with more than 3 teeth in their mouth is picky. Seriously, my first date was such a person! If these people call and try to get you in for one of their one on one interviews, RUN the other way! They know exactly what angle to play to get you to open your wallet!

    I did meet and marry my husband after meeting through Together Dating Service. We both married later in life and so with more maturity I can overlook some things a little easier than when I was younger. But it has always stuck in my crawl that this dating service over promised and under delivered at a high price tag. That was eleven years ago; now there are so many online dating services that can do background checks and compatibility test that I would recommend these options over Together in a heartbeat. My husband is not the financially stable one in the relationship. I've usually had to be that one, but compared to many of my referrals I think he was the safer bet. One of my referrals was morbidly obese, in his late 30's and still lived at home. Some of the others weren't much better. After already catching the rep in a few lies I wrote the service and got a nasty little "you've got to give people a chance" letter. Together does not deliver on their sales pitch of matching candidates who are financially stable, educated or otherwise and the background and credit check was for their own benefit. Save your money on this one and try a different service.
