) but, of all of the dating sites on-line christian mingle is the worst!they do not even have their own data base, they merely channel you to other sites, i e Detailed by San Francisco ABC news affiliate KGO-TV, a 66-year-old San Jose divorcee was swindled out of 0,000 by a Nigerian man who used an online dating site profile as bait.Claiming to be an Irish citizen named David Holmes that worked on a Scottish oil rig, the man started talking to the divorcee through dating site Christian Mingle.com, a site that markets itself as “the online community created specifically for Christian singles looking to find friends, romance or marriage.” The relationship initially progressed from communication through the dating site to emails, text messages, flower deliveries and eventually phone calls.Further along in the relationship, the conversation turned a need for money to pay off his daughter’s tuition.After those initial payments came through, the Nigerian man requested that the woman help fund his oil rig business.It may not be copied without the written permission of Ripoff Report.
Suddenly, the second email disappears....one talking about suspicious activity and needing verifcation...that one. Waiting to hear from a real person as I also filled out the contact form. Oh, but "smiles" are free, but those are used by non paying members to lure them into joining when they get a response and find out that CANT respond unless they pay. Nobody can communicate with rationed emails and smiles from people that don't pay.Always be sure to meet in a public place, like a restaurant, coffee café or bar.Tell a Friend — When heading out on a date, be sure to tell someone else where you’re going and ask him/her to check in with you later.I do get another email stating my account has been reviewed and "credit card" does not match my method of payment, to please verify. I normally would get at least 20 responses per day, but on this BS site I maybe get one per day,.Oh but tons of smiles from members I can't even talk to because of the "join for free" lure.
