Reliable Information Backed by 40+ Years of Investigation
Customer service was of no help whatsoever. They suggested I try this and that, and none of what they suggested fixed the problem. I tried opening my profile in different browsers and even with different computers. Nothing fixed the problem. All they told me was that they would report the problem to their technical section. And after enduring a few weeks of not getting the service that I paid for, my subscription ran out.
At that point I deleted my profile and then created a new one from scratch. In addition I can no longer choose how I wish to view my supposed matches. I also get the same matches all the time. And now they are pushing me to subscribe again, since I supposedly have numerous messages waiting for me in my inbox. I have profiles posted on other sites and none of them even remotely come close to being as bad as this site is.
However there comes a time when one has to stand up for what is right and identify a scam as a scam. I have had pretty much the same thing happen to me as my subscription was ending. OurTime is actually a terrible site. One of the big problems is their marketing schemes. I can only see a part of the people that fit my requirements. In order to see new ones I have to block some old ones. Most sites let you see ALL of the potential. I am not going to renew my subscription and am sorry that I wasted my money here.
This business has very dubious billing practices. What they are doing is not fraudulent, in banking terms , but very bad business practices. Use your billing rights under MasterCard and Visa to fight back; each chargeback against a merchant costs them more money than what they are billing you for, and hurts their relationship with their own bank.
Good for you, bad for them. Eventually they will lose the ability to even process payments from Visa and MasterCard if enough people file disputes against them.
The reason I had a case for dispute is because they did not disclose the amount I would be charged prior to processing my payment. Merchants can challenge any dispute,and if you have used their services AT ALL, they can and will say that although the services were not what you expected, they were still available to you. This makes the charge valid.
Horrible site, false emails, poor sorting, double flirts and emails, false views…more and more issue. I deleted my profile and its still up and can be viewed. Met men looking for casual sex, regardless of what their profile said.
Like another reviewer I just need to vent. I set up a profile just answered some questions, nothing written or a picture. Then looked — no one interesting.
They sent me a potential match and he looked great so I joined. Call center in Philippines so I finally got my money back. Does anyone there exist in the world of the living? Overall, the experience turned out to be your run-of-the-mill dating website. Our Time is a scam. They have the most unattractive people on the site and most of them are fake profiles.
Please call your credit card company and see if you can dispute the amounts they charged you. I called mine and they should issue me a refund in days. More like Outta Time! These money hungry morons couldnt get a date in a leper colony so, while crying in their beers, they concocted this bunch of dribble to torture the rest of the known universe in retaliation instead of actually getting a real job, taking social interaction lessons and taking shower once a day.
These bozos deleted my written profile 4 FN times! More like Sour Time, not Our Time. It must mean Our Time To stuck it to the rest of humanity for the shit hand life dealt them. Some goofs named Eric keeps actually apologizing for the same damn screwup 4 times.
Anyone with a tiny flake of self respect would just fold up and quit but no OOOOO Eric just keeps on apologizing then you pour sand in the wound they bend over backwards and punishment me with a 1 week extension. Probably laden with more technical flaws than a betamax. Were there justice in this world these losers would be forced to watch porn 24 hours a day with their hands cuffed behind their backs!
More like Your Time To Suffer! Fake profiles, even when you just look at a profile , it sends a note to that person saying that interested! Chet you are an asshole. Go back to school and learn something. While Our time informed other sites my card info and all were declined. I called and they refunded on my new card and no more charges. Someone screwed up but not everyone. I have found the site to be a joke. Have never been scammed so many times in my life. What a waste of money.
At this age, a simple answer that you are not interested would be expected from adults. Ourtime has a lot of members but most will just view you and not put in the effort to date.
However if you contact them they usually do make some arrangement for a date. I guess a lot of them are shy. I had a very disturbing experience on one date and it still haunts me. After the date he walked me to my car and tried to twist me around to kiss him. I said not on the first date. He then struck he on my back and backside and walked away. I reported him on our Time. I hope nobody meets Chester as this was his name.
It has put me off dating completely. This is one of so many bad reviews that I doubt it will get much attention, however I have to say my peace.
This is the worse excuse of a dating website ever. The pictures of the men are either fake, blurred, gross like needing a bath…or downright stupid. I fee like I need to wash my hands after scrolling through this site. I tried it for a whole year now I had it way too long and it is truly a rip off for an intelligent woman looking for honesty and decency. I find myself wondering and almost knowing that there must be a site that weeds out all of these nasty flies that are online at our time.
More than half of matches where not real people. Beware if match looks to good to be true it is. Glad I terminated my membership. I wish I would have found these reviews before I signed up. The perspective from me male is no different.
I have been on the site for four days. That does not seem to do much, because the bogus profiles keep coming. The women who were legit were not even close to what I was looking for. Stay away from this site. Unfortunately, this is my 7th site, and most of the ones I have been on are the same…but Ourtime. I just tried this and am wasting more time than ever. I am not a computer whiz ;chatting online,texting is not for me. Noone wants to speak on the phone.
Even if you said No. I could go on…not worth my time. Maybe I should run a dating service…… hmmm…Nope! You are spot on about some of the men —also, if you are a widower, leave the pics off of your wife. I told one guy that you are on a dating site to meet women and you are displaying pics of your late wife and you—that type of man has built an altar to his late wife and pity the woman that gets involved with him!
I was just scammed out of a lot of money. I will not ever use this site or any site from hence forth. These things do no work.
They breed liars and scammers. So going back to the old way of finding a mate. Well I joined earlier this year for one month talked with a few women took out one. But I think she could have been married and her and her husband date others but that is not the sites fault nor can they stop those games..
So thought I would give it another try rejoined for free a few months later put off paying for a few months needing to take care of some business…Joined the first of nov. The 44 were included in the There was one girl 33 lives miles away…Of the other 36 messages there was maybe Okay maybe people have dropped out..
Just lies and deceit to get you to join.. I will be out end of month as I have already gone in and took off automated pay..
They did the very same thing to me. I did not press the button for the They ARE thieves and their website sucks. My ratings for this site is minus stars for overall, features, price and customer service. I wonder where these people come from, the gutter?
Clearly not a match but they send them as such. Such a rip off and a insult to our intelligence. I finished the end of the month and I have only been with them a week. I spent good money to get nothing in return,after getting no responses,meeting no one. I quit and i hope everyone stops throwing their money away. I changed all the settings to stop automatic billing to my credit card not once but twice and they still billed me. I fixed them, I canceled the card so no more billing me!
I was constantly contacted by foreign scam artists who are too stupid to realize that a highly educated person wont fall for their games. The needle in a haystack was just not worth the time wasted. When I choose not to meet someone,I was accused of being too picky or thinking I was better than..
Why do males fee they have the right to choose one they feel is a good match, but females are accused of being picky or stuck up when we reject those who we feel are just not a good match? I found most on line dating sites about the same.
Chalked full of social misfits, narcissists, liars, cheaters and sad sacks. So few good men. Ourtime sends fake flirts and slammed my account with photoless profiles. The males who did write me obviously never read my profile, they simply looked at the pictures.
I am dating in real life only now, at least I can see the real person rather than a 10 year old photo and watch body language and hear tone of voice before deciding whether or not they are safe to meet.
Dont waste your money on this dating site or any other unless you have unlimited hours to waste weeding through the wackos. Auto Renewal was automatically set without my knowledge! I agree with all the previous comments on this page. Then I met one who claimed to work for the UN and he had a supposed car accident and he said that the UN personal took him to new York.. Then pay a token for his release. So you never get to meet them face to face. This is what you get when you start pressuring about a face to face meeting.
As a guy, nothing but interest from pictureless, informationless profiles from people out of state, out of the country, who flirt you, like you, favorite you, email you. And I know every site has some, but SO many obvious fake profiles and scammers on here. I feel sorry for the OurTime women if it is like this for them too. I fell for this piece of crap and gave up by the end of the first day.
This site is a joke. Do not waste your time, energy or money! This site is a scam. It initiates emails to members that were never authorized including flirts, favorites and indications of interest.
It has no customer service — just FAQs, no email address or available phone number. The Our Time dating website is a total scam. Within one day of subscribing, they sent numerous emails out to other members saying that i liked their photo, flirts, and adding members as favorites, without my knowledge or approval.
Class action suits are useless. For starters, I had one of the guys tell me that they pay people on the site to send emails to keep you hooked. The other problem, and I realized it is not the websites problem, but out of the dozen men I talked to, most were married. If anything we need to have a site to report these losers to so their wives can find them. Probably the men have had the same experience.
There has to be a better way….. I wish I had read the reviews before I decided to give it a try. It took me 5 min to sign up, I spent 5 min on it before I got a weird feeling about it, I tried to get a refund. The woman I got on the phone after that first 5 min said since i used the site, i could not get a refund, and she said the only way to speak to her superviser was via email. Unable to log on …always invalid..
Class action lawsuit sounds pretty darn good,Far to many people are being ripped off.. Class action suits are useless because these bozos are based in Costa Rica and therefore outside of any North American legal jurisdiction. Although I am a straight woman, over 50 [which is what they claim the site is about], they sent me women seeking men! And they sent me profiles of young guys — obvious hustlers. Worse -they mistakenly changed my profile name to something very sleazy.
Worst dating site ever. The site sends auto flirts and messages from profiles of people who are not members. When you respond to the flirts or messages you never hear back from the person. I think there are a bunch of fake profiles and that most of the messages and flirts are fake to get you hooked.
Class action lawsuit sounds like a good idea because there is no way to get a refund and you think your purchasing one thing but you get something totally different ,annoying and frustrating. I met about a dozen people through Ourtime. There was dishonesty in height, weight, age, education, marital status, health, and even hair and teeth.
I was very disappointed and feel this was a waste of time and money. Also, I was told by others that they had an option to join on a monthly basis. That option was never available to me. I had to commit for 6 months. Also, even though I checked the box regarding not sharing my contact information, I am now bombarded with e-mails from Christian Mingle, Match and others. We should all create our own dating site. Everyone of you that negatively reviewed the site in question sound like the good guys.
I balked from joining it, as it had a cheezy feel to it. I did not know it was this bad however. Good luck to all of you.
This is the worst website of this nature I have ever seen. I, too, wanted to get a refund, but NO! This could be someone who lives across the country no matter what you specified ; it could also be a woman again, I specified I was looking for a MAN , and many of my profile features were totally ignored. I recently was going to opt out as soon as my subscription was done in Oct.
I was clearing the Promote me screen when at the same time as hitting the X to get out of that the reactivate my acct popped up and was hit while hitting the X to get out of a different screen. Complete scam, renewal policies will get you sucked in for life.
Features of this site is very primitive, users interested in are usually from out of state. They do this to make you feel like action is taking place on their end.
I was signed up for both of these sites which I believe is one and the same. I had married guys, foreigners with the same line I believe they must have some chain letter they circulate.
They all have a dead wife, some family member die due to a violent crime , one child, born out of the USA. Are suspicious of you. It goes on and on. The very worst thing that happened was someone hijacked me and I became a 6 foot 5 man. I had Amex cancel the renewal they hooked me once and surely they were not going to get me again.
I think the only way to meet someone is to let it happen. O Boy, I see by reading the notices below that I am far from alone. Today I had to cancel my credit card to disable their automatic renewal charges. The merchant phone provided to my credit company is dead.
The credit company rep. And there is no way to block messages from people out of the area, so you get these canned messages from people all over the country. This site is a waste of money, but worse, a BIG waste of time. Thus website is a joke. They steal your money and get away with it. I had someone hack into my PC and change my passwords. I get messages and when I say Hi they run the other way. Decided to read the reviews and could have saved my money.
I thought POF was bad but at least it is free!! Live and learn read the reviews before you sign up I rate the site at You are absolutely correct. You have to be quite careful in just moving the cursor. Set up a profile, uploaded a pix and then……all I could do is click on yes, no or maybe.
I come to find out that in order to READ any messages, send any messages or use on-line chat, I must upgrade! I sent an email to the help center- all generated responses and now they are sending it to their technology dept! I also used a Visa card with the exact amount so they could NOT renew anything. Boy have I learned my lesson! Will say this is a pos website…signed up for one month and billed me for 6. They take your money and run,be very afraid!
I also tried to sign up for 1 month but was billed for 6 months. I did call their customer service line and they credited me for 5 months. But I was immediately aware that when I viewed a profile the system sent out a generic message to the person viewed. Same when someone views my profile, I get a message. This is the worst dating site EVER!
And the following month, without my permission, they charged my card again! Did I have him then! I told him that I had supervised a call center before and that what his company had done was illegal.
So I saw that it was still up and not completely erased from their system like I had asked. I told him that there was no page that I had clicked on to renew my subscription whatsoever, and that they had just decided to steal from my account without my permission!
He got scared and gave me a confirmation to return my money back to my account within 72 hours. They also have partner single sites that will start to bombard you to join them, so watch out for them as well as I found out they are all related to each other. These guys are based in Costa Rica. If you flip down through this thread, there are numerous posts similar to yours, generally saying that refunds are impossible to obtain.
I agree with many of the comments above. Almost all of the replies I received were very obvious scams. The addresses were all marked ARIPO whatever, wherever that is and numbers spelled out onesevensix etc. This should be very easy for them to create criteria to filter these very obviously fake profiles out. I got wind of the problem two days in…. I deleted my pics, and went thoroughly through my profile and deleted all, physically, then canceled my subscription, and they did that immediately.
So we shall see on the 23rd of Sept if they try to get more moola. Oh yes, I sent some feedback to them.. This site is nothing more than an internet scam. When you do they give you a clock to upgrade even more. I guess put your name at the top of the list. Once I figured out how to work the website one of the worst interfaces I have ever seen.
Now to the meat of the site. Over half the ladies that responded were sending personal emails or phone numbers and as the site says these people are scammers looking to pray upon you for money.
Many of the responses I got were from people who never filled out their profile! Many more never read my profile! I could tell because we had nothing in common at all! Some were contacting me from the other side of the country! Fortunately i found this page before a subscription. My intuition warned me insistently. They did not offer any test for 1 week…. I remember that they promoted with a sentence … you only get what you put in… something like that….
The site is uncomfortable — the pictures shown to you are very small thus you have to click on them immediately shown to the owner of the profile in concern. The site itself is very ugly — made up like advertisements for articles in a supermarket. It is not worth it — and i feel really released having not subscribed there. I search for another one. It says when you read the agreements and about the site that you can not see your flirts etc unless you upgrade.
If you are scanning and see someone that is really someone you would like to connect with, then upgrade for a month,. Good luck upgrading for just one month. I joined the site in November of In May of I wished Larry a happy birthday and we started a conversation.
We finally met the second week in June and instantly liked each other. Our relationship progressed and on August of we got married. One year later, we are very much in love and we thank Our Time for getting us together.
Congratulations to both of you. Your man is fortunate as the imbalance in numbers of men to women on this site is advantageous to the ladies as it is on all dating sites..
A man needs to catch lightning in a bottle so to speak to have a chance, obviously some do, most do not. I decided to do it after putting a profile and photos on for a week and realizing you cant even talk to anyone to see if real I got on for a special fee of Then all the replies i had 3 were real people the rest scammers i called about it and the over price not going to get my money back and said i had spoken to others they said they were billed for another month after putting the no renewal on the site so they keep billing you anyway.
I asked about all the scammers with some poor persons photos they stole I am sure mine will be in the uk or texas as well now as they teak them off these sites they said we get our customers to report the scammers i said i dont get paid for this ,you are being paid my me to have real people on there he had no answer.
They still wont refund me and take me off there so am in it for the long hall till sept 6th my month is up This is a terrible site and dont even try to compensate the customer they just take and take beware not worth it. Oh plus hardly anyone in my area then they send me guys form the opposite ends of the country lordy so blatant.
I am sending a letter and contacting the Attorney General Fraud Division about this. You will be billed anyway, but at least you can print out the page showing the Attorney General that you have that option turned off. That is my problem I requested no automatic renewal on May 31, only to find out that their records as per my account summary show I requested renewal on July 31, , which is not true.
I wanted off this site and was billed for the next 6 months. Any help out there on how to be done with this OurTime site???? My account site shows that I declined renewal on May 31 then shows I changed it on July 31 …. I did not total fraud. I was scammed for a month subscr. I learned my lesson. Good luck to all you nice people out there.
Total waste of money. Matches sent are not selected from the criteria you choose. Many responses without pictures, many immediately asking for your email address. Customer service is absolutely non existent other than canned automated responses that have nothing to do with your questions. Save your money, you will have better look meeting someone in a grocery store or book store,.
Extreme caution on this site. If you use a pop up blocker or quickly delete the popup your service is renewed. I say promised because the credit has not shown up on my credit card statement yet. Site is very heavy on upselling and has confusing options.
Some your are billed for unless you opt out instead of opting in. I have encountered Fraud all the way fake profiles and you know the rest.
The one advantage I have is that close relative is a Federal Officer they picked wrong person to screw with Ha. I just wanted go to dinner see a show have a laugh Not a hook up this site is a Ruuse.
This is a horrible dating site. I would almost call it a scam. Stay away from it! Just a big waste of money. Stay with the reputable sites. I met a wonderful man on this site 2 yes ago and we got married last month. The site had people in my area and the price was about the same as the other sites but with people my age and men that were looking for a woman the same age.
It was a great experience for us. Beware of registering for Our Time. By putting in one keyword, I got 40 profiles that were exactly the same with different pictures and profile names. This makes the Our Time membership numbers seem much larger than they really are. It is also possible that these people are all scammers and that Our Time is not doing an adequate job of protecting members from scammers. After two weeks of using their service and discovering this, I asked for a pro-rated refund I was willing to pay for the 2 weeks I had already used but was told that no refunds are ever given under any circumstances.
I have already dealt with a scammer…. Cancelled but unfortunately I paid for 6 months. So far, I have talked with 8 different people and had conversations or chatted. The majority were scams. They get a picture from somewhere and then, all they will do is text or chat with you. They will never offer to meet you or call you. I have had different profiles give me the same phone number to text. I am VERY disappointed in this website, and have paid hard earned money for something that is not even legitimate.
I have been on for less then a month. Almost every contact I have received requested my email and said that today was their last day on. Believe me — not so easy to cancel. The scamming is horrible. I thought I would try this out because I am a bit of a loner and thought it would be nice to maybe meet someone to chat with.
Now I remember why I am a loner, lol. I subscribed to this site a week a go. I got a message from someone who was interested. He saw my profile, he seemed nice, I responded to some messages talking about travel, nothing heavy. Then he disappear, so I sent him a message saying that I had read many complaints about this site, so if he was not the person he was, that at least responded, just say goodbye, not interested.
I got back the nastiest most offensive mail I had ever. He knew I was a liberal and a scientist. First he said that he loved my photo.
Now he is attacking me for being a liberal and that he is not attracted to me physically. I thought he was a nice person, he had this photo of him as a soldier. Be careful, I think that we should get together and file a joined complaint. We could try to communicate with people, but we do not deserve to be abused.
I have been trying for a week to cancel mine, It wont let me cancel it. The no thanks option just stays idle. There is no contact number, and it want me to enable something on my computer. OurTime does have warts. But check to make sure. Now for the actual experience of using OurTime. The site randomly selects from three or four such messages. There may be other activities that automatically send one of these messages. No amount of wishful thinking will make this real. It would be like dating my own grandmother.
Thank you so much for the info on stopping automatic renewal. Thanks for an honest review, and the great instruction for canceling. I am glad to know my instincts were right I will not be wasting my time or money on OurTime or any other dating site. Too scary out their for this ole gal. I have subscribed to ourtime. I would opt for one month, immediately opt out of the auto-renewal, and browse until it ran out. I suddenly get all of these messages!
Sometimes more that one. So, I subscribe again, only to see they are either women with no picture, no profile info or someone that lives over miles away! This is beyond coincidence. This happened to me as well. Subscription ended and within two days I had 6 Favorites and 19 Messages! You can opt out of the emails this site will send you.
Scroll down to the bottom of the email and unsubscribe. I completely deleted everything that has to do with this site and no longer receive any type of communication from them. So nice to have that aggravation out if my life. I signed up for six months on this site. Have found that most people I have contacted or have contacted me do not write back or their site is immediately removed.
Without any notice I was automatically renewed with upgrades to double the rate initially paid. It is impossible to contact them. They do not have a phone number for customers. I did email canceling but my account has already been charged. My bank is disputing this charge. I believe this is a scam to get money from older people. Since these bozos are apparently based in Costa Rica, nothing will get done. Perhaps a better strategy is to complain to your local ISP provider that this is a fraud and suggest that they block access to this site for their subscribers.
Little concerned that the latest scam seems to be retired cops. If things are not working it does not matter where Our Times is, a scam is a scam. This site is filled with scammers…all wonderful God-fearing guys who make between , to , a year and who immediately ask for YOUR email address or text no.
Ladies beware of these contacts. This website takes advantage of those of us who are hopeful that seeking a relationship within our age group will filter out some of the issues encountered on sites like Match. After no success, I set my parameters to receive matches from people who are over years old. This site seems to be a money making scam that preys on mature adults.
Stay away and keep your money. I signed up for 1 month and was charged for 6!!!!!! Customer Service is non-existent. Run like hell — Never get any messages, Site say talk to them now and as soon as you click the link message off line. After paying for the 6 months they ask for more money. The settings for local and age group change. This site is bogus. Most were so not what I was looking for. I am a non smoker. I am relying on networking or just pure luck.
My subsciption ends on June 20th! My experience with all online services with auto-pay is they are nearly impossible to cancel. Avoid at all costs!! Who would give a negative review to a factual observation that the key to disabling auto-renew is almost impossible to find?
OurTime is a horrible site. I signed up with basic information for the free membership. Within a few minutes notifications appeared indicating I had several e-mails and profile views. Of course you have to pay to be able to read and send e-mail.
Thankfully, I only signed up for one month. The e-mails were scammers from overseas. Rather than allowing members to opt in for automatic renewal, OurTime requires members to go through a many-step process to opt out of automatic renewal charges. The site has NO satisfaction guarantee or proportional refund. The site appears to benefit from scammers so newcomers will surely get mail and want to pay to read their mail.
I have written two questions in the customer service box and have received a response to neither. I would give negative stars if I could. Try a different dating site. I signed up for 6 months and turned auto renewal off.
I still lost a month I paid for though. The service is not worth the price. The quality of the people on their website is not their fault, but the lack of customer service from Ourtime is unacceptable and infuriating. I found the women I met represented themselves accurately on the site. Some may have had a better opinion of themselves then I had but so what? Some rejected me, some I rejected.
The site kept my dance card full. There are some girls who are clearly on to rip off older guys. That aside, I thought the real women on the site were honest and high quality.
Some extremely attractive, some attractive, some not attractive. Some where kind in our interactions, some rude, some simply disappeared. Some are horrible, most are good if you keep your expectations reasonable. This is a good one. This review is a scam. Our time is the worst site out there! Must be 50 plus 2.
Must pass background check 3. If you mange to get pass the background check and found to be a scammer. You will be prosecuted. Payment will be pay as needed.
Be it 1 month or years. Pay for what you need. Not the one that shows how you looked in ! If there is anyone who feels the same leave a comment and I will respond as well as return with a web site. And our time I have registered my rules! Sounds like this site sucks the bag was going to join but with all the horrible reviews I changed my mind. Sounds like a hookup site me. So sad that people cant have fun and enjoy meeting people especially at our age.
I would got to a bar if I wanted to hook up. Who needs to pay to play? Most of my contacts were through chats. I found repeatedly that someone would claim to live in my area but could not even respond to basic questions about places they liked or restaurants they enjoyed. Most have strange language patterns, are widowed, and use LOL way too much. They were always good looking and some even had more than one picture. One sent me his web page for his mining and precious metals company. The grammar was terrible and it was 3 pages of generic info including two totally different dates as to when the company went public.
Needless to say, there is no such company. Another guy was supposedly from the town I grew up in — very small place. I reported 3 scary people but they did nothing. I would guess I was contacted by 15 men who appeared to be scammers. I met my late husband on Match years ago so I know how to Internet date. I have never seen so many scammers before. Guess because I am a fairly good looking blonde and showed myself to be a business owner, they thought I was an easy mark.
Even simple screening and basic policing based on complaints should be expected for the fees they charge. The site itself is easy enough for anyone to use.
I am male and would say that there seem to be decent women on this site and the potential to meet someone meaningful appeared quite feasible. However, my experience has not been promising nor productive. I do have those but it hardly matters. Women seem obsessed with the height of a man. The worst case scenario are these: I cordially send them a complete message, then I do not hear from them.
What is that about? Then on more than one occasion, a lady thanks me for sending her a lovely message. She then asks me numerous questions. Sorry, I do not understand such arrogant behavior. There must be a better way! Recently joined the Not Free Ourtime dating site.
Did not filter criteria when they ask you your preferences- height, location, age group- seems like they just sent whatever is on there.
Then- after only 48 hrs. Someone had rewritten everything I had posted! Saying rude comments and completely fabricating anything I am about! No customer service, no phone number with a live person. I deleted profile after paying for 48 hrs.! I can totally relate. Unfortunately, in this world it seems negative outweighs the positive. Keep the faith, and keep trying. There are still decent people out there. I can really relate to Phil.
I have been a paying member since April 1, I have been hit by at least 3 scam artists. I am a widow, and believe that honest is the best policy while on these sites, but I am NOT ignorant! Nothing worse than people not communicating back with you when you try to communicate with them. I feel that OurTime should take the time to search and protect people.
Could eliminate the hassel! Supposedly eHarmony DOES check people for honesty about status divorced, widowed, separated , but I also received questionable matches there. Three times during my 4 months, I received messages from accounts which were hacked — so it happens a lot.
I tried e-harmony once based on their pitch about extensive compatibility testing. That seems to be true, but the whole suite of questions totals something in excess of 1, Hi …I am a woman. I have tried the site twice in a year and found the same thing as Phil… so it goes both ways. Men have done the same to me. Most men on there seem to be looking for a Barbie.
And seem to still be looking because in the 8 month between me trying I get the same faces. I was just looking for someone to spend time with my own age. To enjoy the rest of my life.
Phil, Thank you for your review. I was ready to join this site given the positive ads , however I guess I am a skeptic and thought it best to see what others thought. Your review helped via the treatment you have had from others.
I am sorry for your experience and yet grateful for your review. Agreed with many of your comments. Even the most professional, diligent and customer-centric dating sites cannot filter out or block even a fraction of the scammers out there. Not unlike essentially every business out there, volume is the key for dating site survival.
Whatever type of relationship you are looking for, the only chance you stand for meeting someone with similar interests is to join a site and pay for a subscription. Those subscribers who pay for an upgrade are more likely to have a desire to meet someone. Or these promise to meet you and then shaft you..
This skepticism has been a perennial source of conflict in my family because half of us have to badger the others to go to the doctor. Stephen Barrett is a doctor, passionate health advocate, world-class competitive swimmer, and the Founder of Quackwatch. Quackwatch is an informational resource that combats health-related frauds, myths, fads, and fallacies that can keep otherwise functional individuals, like my dad, from making responsible choices regarding their health.
Stephen keeps his finger on the pulse of the health marketplace to help consumers understand what issues may negatively impact their lives. They point out the good and censure the bad to help regular people avoid getting misled. Many of his topics are responses to news stories or reader-submitted questions.
Everything on Quackwatch is backed by reliable source materials. It helps to be logical. It helps to go to medical school, too. But Quackwatch helps put people on their guard by telling them about ways to spot quacks and common misconceptions about quackery.
