What a waste of time this was, and they charge you £39.00 a month for basically nothing other than fake users contacting you and abusive member when you do get to chat with somebody and then they are calling you a scammer, all very unpleasant !
Before I took out a membership to this dating site, my user profile was copied from a similiar if not sister site and then i started getting alot of chat requests from so called interested members wishing to chat, ha but the very moment I joined as a full paid up member the chat requests went from 10 a day sometimes down to nothing, other than the odd one or two which I was cautious about as they weren't really in my age range anyway, I believe that most if not all of the so called chat requests were automatically generated and so that leads you into a false sense of believing that the site is worth taking out the membership fee to talk to site members, but in my experience two people that I got envolved with in chat were abusive and rude, and called me a scammer, and a few others talked about coffee and drinking it all day, but when I contacted them via the sites email system nothing other than an automated response it seemed giving me a yahoo address split into parts in order that the site didn't pick up on it, I replied to this yahoo address to see if that would get me a response and eventually got a reply email giving me a link to check out her profile but on some pay site for adult porn, and so I thought that was one definate fake profile then, so the other day I was contacted by another user which seemed genuine and low and behold thats signed from the same person that gave me a link to this pay for porn site, I'm not impressed whatsoever.
When I took out my membership I went straight to my account section and made sure that I cancelled my account so that I only had one month and it gave me an date for when it ceased, and low and behold they've had the cheek to take out another months payment of £ 39.00 for the same poor service again !!! what a joke !!

I've now sent an email through their system asking them for a full refund for the second months access which I had not asked for and saying that I'm not impressed with their user profiles as most of them seem to be fake, so I am considering taking up this matter with trading standards and participating in a BBC documentary highlighting this and other dating sites, ( not true really but thought it might nudge them into giving me a refund ) we will see

    Globex & U called a few months ago telling me that they will be seMDing an invoice for payments of the 2nd year of a 2 year contract authorized by the president of the company (they gave the name of the president - what CAN'T you fiMD on the internet?). We have no record of this company anywhere in our database aMD have obviously NOT authorized any services they claim to offer. After receiving their invoice, I sent them (aMD the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre) a letter stating I will not pay the invoice since what they told me on the phone was false aMD misleading. They called again today aMD was demaMDing we pay their invoice based on the previous phone call, which was recorded. When I re-iterated what I wrote in the letter - WE WILL NOT PAY, information provided to me was incorrect, she demaMDed to speak to the president but after putting her on hold, she hung up almost immediately.

    This company is definitely out to scam unassuming people. Be aware!!
