Thankfully I had cancelled my credit card prior but they still keep sending me threatening emails, claiming they will charge additional fees if I don't pay. such fake advertising should be against consumer law. Hi Anne, Well hopefully you didn't pay for more that one month.
I wrote to them and asked what would happen if I didn't pay and they haven't answered the question. They feed members what they wish when they feel like it.. Old members long left still appear as active and put forward as matches... The site advertises as having 82% of members with academic qualifications. if you are over 60 and looking for someone over 60, the percent is more like 5%! Absolutely rubbish should be re branded as elite bogan trash. It's no better than any other site after my 6 months got nothing! You can stay on the site to use up your subscription and then make sure you cancel it before it automatically renews itself. Or just write off what you've paid and cancel now.

As soon as I paid, the messages all but stopped (except for a few crazies without photos). I paid for a 6 month subscription, found it a complete waste of money as most "matches" didn't have photos or were not in my search settings.

Aileen was promised support from Searchmate’s highly experienced team of matchmakers, and a guaranteed minimum of 15 recommendations.
Online dating scams: new tricks that fleece victims of an average '£9,589' But in November last year, Aileen felt a growing sense of disappointment as five months had passed and she had yet to meet any men.
