I have decided to cancel my monthly direct debit after being 'matched' by another lady at the company with unsuitable clients, mostly older than requested and whom lived far away.This lady had no knowledge of me, and when initially setting up my profile online completed with terrible spelling errors and poor phrasing.When informing the company of my distrust for the company and indeed it is my belief there were few eligible men or profiles in their agency, I was told my height was an issue, at 5ft10 and it was odd I had not made any matches it met with anyone. The lady in question was rude in her tone across all emails, very unprofessional and I believe has since let the interviewer whom I first spoke with go, as she was not mentioned once since joining.One woman who is no stranger to the various pitfalls of dating services is Aileen Edwards, a 61-year-old health worker who cares for dementia sufferers. In her spare time she enjoys theatre, swimming and the great outdoors.
After being given 6 profiles over 5 months, I chatted with 2 over the phone, who were not suitable.
In some cases, scammers sent flowers or a fruit basket as a sign of affection before asking for help paying for a flight to the United States or a cancer-stricken family member’s medical bills.
However, one hustler, perhaps recalling the old adage that “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach,” sent one customer “wings from Papa Johns,” according to one complaint.
She says she “isn’t looking for a major spark” but is searching for a man with a good sense of humour to share her life with. The first blow was when she fell victim to a scammer on an online dating site.
He claimed to be a high flier in a major American toy firm, but then managed to convince her to give him £200 for medical treatment, encouraging her to take out credit cards.
