eharmony Eharmony Scam!

http://www.bikermatchmaking.com/Inte...Complaints.htm

Eharmony is a big SCAM! It's a FRAUD!!! First they busy people need to watch out, they WILL renew your subscription without your authroization if you read carefully! And if they they try to lure you in by sending you matches after you have cancelled, DO NOT FALL for the 7 Day trial period, because they will not refund your money. Their reason being that they only refund on the first time you subcribe. A total SCAM! What a total deception this company is running their business on! "Kate" from Colorado.

They also scammed me. When I cancelled their service, I was taken to a page that said my credit card would not be charged. It was.

I called them and they said they never said they would not charge the card.

I told them I had a screenshot of the page and read them the language and said I was going to forward it all to the attorney general.

I had a refund in 30 seconds.

Re: eharmony Eharmony Scam!

uhhhh auto renewals are pretty standard with any monthly subscription services. Read what you're signing up for before you put in your cc info.

Re: eharmony Eharmony Scam!

Beware of eHarmony.
Their system has a user option by which you can set auto-renew
membership. Several weeks ago, I deleted my visa account information so
my card would not be automatically charged. Eharmony still found a way
to charge me $29.95 without my visa number and without my consent on
February 20th, 2007. I called customer service the same day my account
was set to expire they refused to refund the amount. I believe this
practice to be underhanded and mercenary...most certainly not Christian!

Re: eharmony Eharmony Scam!

That is something you have to watch out for, the automatic renew trick. Classmates, Triple Advanta and Match.com all got me with that. Just keep an eye on your bank balance...I'd say everyday.

Re: eharmony Eharmony Scam!

Listen to MY experience with eHarmony. At 44 years old...I was at the tail end of being able to conceive a child through natural causes and was explicit that my #1 desire was to have a baby.

So who do they try and fix me up with...a 63 year old man. 19 years older then me. Do I want the father of my baby to be 63? I don't think so. I wrote an indignant letter and asked if they were going to fix me up with someone where there was a 19 year age difference...it would have made more sense to fix me up with someone 19 years younger [think Ashton and Demi]. They wrote back and said it didn't work that way...it had to be the older man/younger woman scenario and not vice versa.

I was incensed. Haven't we begun to get rid of THAT stereotype? I had gotten three replies in the three months I had been a member.

And when you tell them that being a mother is your first priority [and maybe final chance] and then to be matched up with someone of that age... it was an insult and they never got it. And this man and I had nothing in common. I spent hours taking their tests and none of the men "matched" on the points that the smarmy Dr. Warren talks about in his commercials.

When those commercials come on and they show those "happy couples"...I hit the mute button...because I know it is all a big scam.

DON'T FALL FOR THAT PITCH. Those are actors and he is making a fortune.

Re: eharmony Eharmony Scam!

If your number one goal is to have a baby, a 65 or 75 year old man can do it. Maybe he'd be nicer than a young man, too. He'd be all mellow and he would be retired so he could spend a lot of time with the baby. You'd have to change his diapers and your baby's. It's like a two for one deal.

Re: eharmony Eharmony Scam!

I'm sorry but I don't want a 63 year old man being the father of my baby. So when the child is 10...he is 73. Can he throw a football or play basketball or do any of the things a younger dad can? I don't think so and I don't think most 63 year old men want to start a family...this one didn't. That is why it was a scam all the way around.

And in their 70's? I hope you are kidding. So a 10 year old has a father in his 80's? Is he still going to be alive by then as the average age for men is 73 I believe...so s/he grows up with no father.

Young men these days have a whole different approach to parenting. Every guys I know changes diapers...wakes up in the middle of the night for feedings and all the rest. I don't see an old man doing that. In fact...the whole thought makes me a little nauseous.

Were you being humorous?

Re: eharmony Eharmony Scam!

LisaE...I am wondering if it isn't Eharmony, but your approach...your posting kinda scared me! I understand defining your wants upfront, and can appreciate your honesty, but it sounds like--to me at least--your main goal is to be a mother, which I understand, because I am in the "biological clock ticking' category, but most people come to these dating sites looking for someone to love as a possible life partner. It seems that "compatibility" to you means someone who is an appropriate father to raise the children that you want to concieve.

Methinks that sort of quest belongs on another site...not eharmony!

And no--I am not an eharmony member, but I have been a member of other dating sites. They are set up for "dating", not "procreation".

Re: eharmony Eharmony Scam!

My complaint is basically deceptive advertising and lack of response from there customer service via email request.

1st. - during the initial browsing on what they called a free comunication weekend the matching sends numerous email match's in your area but of course no pictures of match's unless you subscribe as well as the comunication method is a fill in the blank question that a member may ask you questions "guided comunication" which is a joke.

2nd. then I finally decided to subscribe on the last chance spring offer and my original fear which came true was they try and auto-renew after your period runs out meaning they have your credit card number and charge - well the deceptive part of this is they say during the process that when you get to the confirmation page you can dis-able the auto renewal feature but no valid link was listed and I emailed the support staff asking them on steps to disable the auto renewal to my credit card and no response at all - so this business practice prompted me to immed. cancel my subscription and I anticipate problems with charges on my credit card and will likely end up in a dispute charge process.

Thanks for your website - I really hope that someone has launched complaints to the AG office on eharmony.
Steve - Texas

Re: eharmony Eharmony Scam!

I was an eharmony member for a year and have no complaints. When I felt they were sending me men that were too old, all I did was change the age preference in my profile, and it never happened again.

I did get charged after my year ended, because I forgot about the auto-renew. That was my own fault and I didn't bother asking them for money back due to my own screw-up.

Nope, I, and most people I have met, would find an older woman/younger man relationship absurd. Regardless of what they do in Hollyweird, the capital of the land of fruits and nuts.

Re: eharmony Eharmony Scam!

My experience on eHARMony:

1. Eharmony will not refund my money. They promise to do that, then they refuse and ask me to call them and then hang up on me. Next time I call they say I must wait online for 2 hours... and then after 40 minutes of waiting their phone line mysteriously hangs up. Then the next time I call they categorically refuse to refund my money yet the suport person on the email states that they will refund if I call them... Then when I call them they say I've been on a 3 day (three day) trial (which never was noted or found on their site).

2. Their "RelyID" service charged me $5.95 twice and the online verification failed both times yet Eharmony cathegorically refuses to refund the $5.95 (charged twice) and they send me to RelyID and RelyID sends me back to Eharmony.

3. They send me matches with kids while I indicated no kids; they send me matches from far away states while I indicated within 30 miles; Most 90% or more matches CLOSE the match no matter how good my profile is. There's just nothing wrong with me, yet 99% of the "matches" are being closed either right away or after the exhaustive question-answer ordeal and what's the weirdest that your LIKES-DISLIKES (can't stands etc.) must MATCH otherwise your match will close the match! Yet there is no way to keep your "can't stands" list short or blank. They MAKE YOU to select 10 can't stands, which is weirrrrrd! You're very limited with Eharmony on what you can do.

4. Eharmony support makes promises that they never keep ever.

5. Eharmony support is rude and hangs up on you.

6. Going to an Eharmomy site loads malicious atdmt.com files into your computer.

7. EharMONEY.com redirects to Eharmony.com . It's all about money, not about matching you with the right person.

8. 99% of "matches" do not match at all and CLOSE the match on you after you go through all the questions and answers...

9. Eharmony says I've been on a 3-day trial while there's no such thing on their website.

10. Eharmony's RElyID is pre-made to fail that they could get you fax them your sensitive details such as SS#, Photo ID and when you decide not to do that they refuse to refund your money for the RElyID service.
No advance notice is posted that user may need to manually identify themselves to RelyID. You have no choice, once you pay, all you can do is manual verification, you can't get your money back even if RelyID fails, even if they charge you twice or three times!

11. Eharmony sends you non-existing users.

12. Quite often the user's age shown as zero "0" and their location as "none" or wrong.

13. You can find closed matches in your account which you never saw before.

14. In your account you keep on seeing "Your Profile is Not Complete" (you need to verify your id) yet when you try to verify it fails and asks you to fax your Social Security Number, Two of Your Photo ID's etc.
After paying a lot of money for a membership fee you still get this your profile is incomplete unless you surrender to them your SS# !!

15. Some matches they send you suddenly disappear.

16. Most matches never respond, because they stop paying their fee, but Eharmony displays them as pending misleading you into thinking that they are still members while they are not paid members anymore and therefore until they pay again they have no way to respond to you.

17. Person's weight is not displayed. I ask not to match me with obese people yet they keep on sending me obese looking people.

18. No refund or billing policy is found anywhere on eHARMony.com

19. Eharmony does not maintain their email addresses. Provided email address failed when I emailed a support request to it.

20. Eharmony.com stopped working with Firefox in June 2008. I can't login to Eharmony.com using my favourite Firefox browser and their site opens with a blank page with a couple words on it identifying the error, but no actual error. Eharmony support promised to send a tech support email to me in 5 minutes, yet 6 hours later no such email and their site is inaccessible using Firefox.

21. Eharmony phone number is hard to find or actually nowhere to be found on their website even if you are a paid member.

22. Eharmony could see that certain kind of people close their match on me 100% of times, yet they keep on sending the same kind of people as my matches again and again (example: white U.S. women).

23. About 80% or more "matches" that they send you never respond and you will have to close that particular match probably by selecting "This match never responded to my request to communicate" before your "no response" and "CLOSED" match "portfolio" grows out of proportion...

Re: eharmony Eharmony Scam!

Wow - that sounds like a pretty bad situation. Honestly if you want to get anywhere hire a laywer or threaten to go to the media.

They will only respond when they know it can hurt them somehow.

I would consider eHarmony one big scam of an idea even before your post - but having read what you wrote - i would stay about a million miles away from them...

Re: eharmony Eharmony Scam!

What a waste of time with Eharmony. Try testing it yourself. Open your Firefox cannon and shoot www.eharmony.com. E+harm+money. Then (you must be their member to) login. It takes for the site about 15-20 seconds to "log you" in, but you won't be logged in most likely, since a BLANK PAGE will open (if you use a FIREFOX browser; I have not tested other browsers yet) and the only text in the upper left corner is this:

document.domain = "


I let them know about the problem, but their support email bounces and their phone support does not keep their promises, so after paying ONE YEAR membership I feel cheated and lied to. And they refuse to refund any money, even double charges. The support in fact told me "Eharmony is not compatible with all browsers". Instead of trying to make their site Firefox-compatible or fix the problem the support hung up on me.
