eHarmony — poor service!
Well, here is my embarrassing story, and please note I am doing my own investigative work, no party is guilty; HOWEVER... Matched with this incredibly awesome man via eHarmony. Says all the right words, attentive, AND supposedly is in the military - a brave soldier currently on active duty in Afghanistan.
Well, my brave soldier since he met me asked me to front over $5100 in USD. Hmmm what is wrong with this picture? No no - different increments. Okay, so I was stupid and began my questioning and researching only AFTER the fact I wire $300 to his "agent."
Well public records do not show my match to exist (Martin Joll/M.Joll of Erie, PA) no matter what state I have been told he has lived (TX, MA). His parents are dead. He is divorced. He is an only child. While I cannot deny any of this to be true, the matter of no public records for a 46 year old who has been married, divorced, purchased homes, etc. is not 'normal.' A recent package sent to my kids by him, lists another man's name, when questioned, it was the name of a fellow trooper, a good friend helping another friend in need, by ordering and paying for the shipment. I placed a call to this company where shipment came from, they can only confirm the sender's name AND that the bill was paid by another name... hmmm did I not mention the sender was also the guy who paid the bill for my awesome liar? I have 2 pics -- but I do not know if this is him or not... I have never seen him. No webcam is allowed in the camp where he is at. I am unable to mail care packages because nothing is allowed to come in and out of he camp....all possibilities considering he very well may be at the front lines in Kabul, but all so very suspicious. No telephones are allowed so I cannot hear his voice - does he have an accent? Ughhh.
I post this ONLY because he is still, to my knowledge, and active subscriber to eHarmony. Even so, from what I am reading eHarmony still forwards inactive subscriptions as matches --- I can definitely confirm this as my subscription has been inactive since July 12 and I am getting matches all the time.
LADIES BEWARE OF M. JOLL, military, Erie, PA!
Now, if after further investigation, my "red flags" are false, then I owe this man a major apology but until then, I remain guarded and hope if anybody out there in cyberspace can provide me additional information, please please contact me and/or post a reply or your situation.
