      This website is ###. To message ANYONE you need to spend $1.
      Then for them to view your message they have to pay a minimum of 30€ a month..
      For you to be able to message them again YOU have to pay the minimum of 30€ a month.

      You can't even blood view people who've viewed you without paying 30€ a month.

      The friend requests and such feel completely fake, and the matches they make are fake.

      If someone messages you, you can't click on their name or anything else without being asked to pay.
      If you click on the link that goes exactly to their profile it ends up just redirecting you to the homepage (because they block you from being able to message the same person twice without paying)

      I've never found a worse dating site ever. Even adultfriendfinder is better than this.
      Utterly horrible, looks like it was made in MSpaint.

      The only GOOD thing is that they allow you to put contact info, like email and skype etc. in your 'about me' so if someone is REALLY interested with you, and you don't want to pay they can email you or add you to skype and bypass all the bs.

      He is completely correct on this I wish I would have read the reviews first. This site is a huge scam. They have hot girls say they want to speed date with you, But wait as a new member you get this one free. but they girls never talk or even say hi. Even when you sign up same thing. Also the website crashes on me where it stops loading. At least ill have the last laugh. I used a credit card that has no funds on it and never will because its my flex health spending account from my last job. So I don't work there anymore. Its been at least 2 months not having the insurance and having the job. But this site sent me I copied and pasted.

      Subscription Confirmation
      Thank you for purchasing a subscription to SpeedDate.com on 05/03/2012.Your payment has been processed 191.40 for your new 12 Month membership. Unless you cancel before the end of the term by calling [protected] Monday through Friday, 7AM until 5PM Pacific Time Zone (GMT-8) (excepting major U.S. holidays) or by logging into your Premium Account and modifying the Account Status within Your Profile's Account Settings, your card will be automatically charged on a recurring basis based on the term you agreed to and at the rate then in effect. Payments for unused portions of a subscription will not be refunded.

      Now I went to my account settings and I cant make a change to cancel my membership. whats really messed up is before I entered the credit card info I could make changes to my account and even cancel my membership. Because I was offered a complimentary month, HAHAH which doesn't work anyway. If it did you would only speak with Bots/Fake users anyway. So Please stay away from the site even the .99 cents to get you verified does nothing for you.

        THEY DID THE SAME ### TO ME!!! One of the options to get a paid subscription to their site after I joined was a subscription for $15.95. Well when I chose that option, it turned out that they charged me $15.95 TIMES 12!!! Needless to say after I saw that over $191.00 was drafted from my account, I was PISSED! Yeah, I called up their customer service and they told me it was in the fine print and they do not give refunds for first time subscriptions. Needless to say, I got sscammed BIG time! I wouldn't recommend this site to my worst enemy. Stay away from them! It's a scam!

      Speed Dateunauthorized bankcharges

      On the 21st, of Feburary 2011, I went on the speeddate site to cancel my subscription. I then find that on 03-01-2011, I find that I had been charged for another month of service to my bank account. I then call the toll free number to find out why I was still charged for the subscription, and was told that there was no contact made in cancelling my subscription. However the billing representative could see that I had explained to her that I had been on the site the day of the 21st of Feb. to cancelling, but accidentally turning off the incoming e-mail's. I again attempted to explain that this situation was truly a mistake, and that if she could plainly see that I had quoted when I first called " that I had tried to cancell my subscription on that day in question ". Nevertheless I am told that the charges are non-refundable. I requested to speak with a supervisor, and was told that " I could not ", but I could "WRITE" my concerns to a supervisor.
      At this point I asked the necessary question's to do just that, from a woman named, Darnell employee #141654, and proceeded to file this complaint to the site, but no avail there was no where to that. So here is my complaint.
      I would like to know how the company knowing that you've attempted to cancel appropriately can still keep your money, without good justification, when the charge in question is being questioned on the same morning the funds where taken out ( 05:- - ) and I had to wait for there offices to open, to call approximately about ( 1:45pm )
      after taking care of other bills.
      I am a disbaled veteran, on a limited income so I try to keep a very close watch on my funds, and my spending, so when I see that I am still being charged for a service that I no longer wanted, of course I am going to do what I can to account for every fee.

      [protected]@yahoo.com
      P.S. If you have found a solution for this company's wrong-doing's, please if you will enlighten me to it please.

          I had met John 54 Bronx New York on your site. We spoke on Yahoo.com His name on that site is [email protected] He sounded so perfect & I wanted it to be real. But all he kept asking for was an ITUNE card so he can talk to me on the phone. I spent $100 in total then he asked me to sent him money to PA for his daughter. $500.00 I said I would ask my brother for the money. He got angry and said I had it in the bank why don't I just get it out and send it. He's called me from 3 different numbers...[protected], [protected], [protected], all in different parts of New York I found out. He has my address my home phone, my cell phone numbers. I am disabled and very scared now. What do I do now to protect myself from what else he is capable of doing to me or finding more out about me ? He sent me flowers... The card says its from myfloralplace.com Please help me I'm scared. And now I don't want to go on your site because he may come on as another person. Another man did the same almost to me but I blocked him. My home phone number is [protected] call me ASAP please. Thank you, Debbie

          I never agreed to an auto charge. It was to be a one month one time deal. I DO NOT DO auto charges or auto renew. This is why I prefer paypal. I am able to catch crap like his.
          So I cancelled the debit card and am refuting the charge from this questionable company. Little side note. Suddenly three charges show up in Quatar, yes you read riight Quater the Middle Eatern Country. Someone used my Debit Card info to purchase three Voda phone somethings for 141.36 bucks each. I would guess it had to do with somone who works at Speeddate my best guess as I rarely use this card.

          You filed a complaint today at 1:45pm "to no avail"...give them a chance to read your email...
          P.S.- How does a "disbaled veteran, on a limited income" plan on paying for a date.

        Speeddate.comIf you like any control over your dating experience, including when to start it, steer clear from this site

        OMG THE most annoying website, bar none! I don't know if it's just because I'm too far on the introvert scale but I can't stand this. Any time you sign on to do anything, it a.) throws you right into the middle of a speed date and b.), won't let you cancel. There's a popup saying that it will let you cancel, but if any of the alleged cancellation links work I couldn't find them, and the largest button is, of course, "Find me another speed date!" They shoved me into a speed date when I had merely clicked the link to alter my email preferences and hadn't even signed in. Speed is one thing, this is ridiculous. If you like ANY control over your dating experience, including when to start it, steer clear from this site!

Anyhow, lesson learned $$$$... If I can stop even one person from that scam, then it's worth it... I got totally scammed; and you will to if you give one dime to that website!!

          SpeedDate.com, Inc.False or misleading representation

          SpeedDate.com, Inc. purchase process was so blatantly misleading that upon clicking on the Paypal link seller’s form disappeared and I was automatically led to seller’s main web page. I was not lead to a Paypal page and I did not give Paypal the permission to pay the seller nor did I agree to complete the transaction. The seller simply took the amount of money you wanted without my permission.

          The price displayed on was 15.00 a month. I agreed to try for a monthy Then my paypal account was charged 191.40.

              Well before you pay, you can see the final amount, So it is your mistake not to check properly before clicking "Pay Now" . It is possible by any site and also you might have selected yearly subscription and lost your mind control looking at the photos of the girls there and excited to sign up to know them.

            Speed Datesubscription

            speeddate is such a scam, will not refund the money they took from my acct.i went too their web site and accidenyly hit the subscribe button my mistake, called the following day and was told by a person named Gene that all they could refund was $30. from the $191. i was charged. i tried very hard too reason with him and he even acknowleged that it was a mistake on my part that SD would not do a complete refund. This was very disappointing and will change my debit card # so that they can not get more from my acct. i will tell others online about this and warn any person that SD is very bad...

                  Many (if not all) social networking sites give their members/visitors the option to invite friends -- from their addressbook -- to join their services. This is a common business practice and entirely legit. It require that you (the visitor/member) provide the service both your email address (they otherwise don't know you) and the password to that email account. No one's cracking into your email without your permission. More likely, you wanted to check out the service, filled in the fields presented (to look for your friends) without paying attention to the permission you were giving.

They steal your identity etc.. Here are some names that i caught. HayleyCole 21 years old, Barbara02 23 years old. Just watch out for the young cute ones. Ask if they are cam girls and if they don't answer than most likely they are.

                    When I told SpeedDate that I was willing to pay for one month, but I'd like a refund for 11 months, they told me that THEIR POLICY DOES DOES NOT ALLOW REFUNDS!!! So, I filed a complaint with the FCC on 12/15/10. Let's see what the FCC HAS TO SAY! EVERYONE WHO HAS A COMPLAINT AGAINST SPEEDDATE MUST FILE A CLAIM WITH THE FCC.
