|I'm a Senior Business Analyst who in 2008 and beginning of 2009 was traveling 100% for business. I've relocated from Europe in 2007 and because I wasn't in San Diego during the week I wanted to increase somehow the probability and efficiency of meeting "the right person" through different channels.|
I found that one additional way to increase the chances of finding someone similar or who would correspond to me based on education, looks and lifestyle, would be to use the services of a Dating company.
When I contacted the company they made a good impression on me, even if I didn't find the consultants there as being very educated by any means. While money wasn't something that I was bothering about, I thought I would give it a chance since I would sign a contract. From the business practices I'm familiar with, when you sign a contract both parties agree to deliver their part. I did mine, and paid the full amount of $2,600 within one week.
The contract stated that they will provide me 10 persons who are personally chosen by a consultant and who would fit my requirements/preferences. However, the first person I've met was a shock for me. She was chubby, she had teeth and she had some mental issues. This shocking experience made me start to look more exactly at the company I've signed the contract with. Then first I've realized that they run a scam. They promise EVERYTHING, just to make you sign. Their contracts are very well put together, that when you read the small print, you understand the tricks behind their business.
Nevertheless, I've continued to see what else will this "contract" bring. After 1.5 years (out of 3) I've met a chubby person, been on the phone with someone who wasn't actually interested in dating, and contacted another girl who I was careful enough to first proof what's her education, how she looks like and what her lifestyle is like, thus it didn't come to a meeting because she didn't even come close to what I was looking for, and The Right One knew very well about those facts.
Moreover, after all these bad experiences, I had to find out lat 2010 that the company dissolved and they terminated my contract without informing me.
This is what I call a SCAM !
... and I will sue them in the court.
