MatchMaker Intl FIRST pulled the old "Bait and Switch" on me, by showing me the files(from across the room) of 3 attractive ladies, whom they said were available and would set me up with dates, But of course, I NEVER saw any of them. They suckered me out of $5000. YES,$5000. and set me up with only 11 dates in 2 and 1/2 years. sometimes going 3-5 months at a time without a "match".. They set me up with one lady who wasn't even divorced yet, she had no job, 4 kids, and black.(I specifically said I was looking for a white lady) Not prejudiced, just a preference.. I was 40 looking for 40 or younger, and they set me up with 2-3 ladies 50 and over. I told them I wanted my money back or at least part of it, and they said I could "SELL" my contract to someone/ HOW could I do that when they already screwed ME over?? I wouldn't cheat someone out of their money. Anyway, I never went to court against them as they threatened to counter sue me claiming I signed the "no refund" contract", and I figured, I already lost $5000 to them,,,I can't afford to lose and risk losing more. I see now they went out of business, and I want to be a part of any lawsuit.. someone please contact me at jonturnquist@att.net

As a former employee, let me assure anybody; this service is a joke and a scam. The employees are phony,please don't be fooled. This company is a rip off. I say this because I was an employee and I know exactly how the company is ran. The owner Nancy Schollhammer is a greedy business owner expecting her employees to take advantage of people that have low self-esteem and make them feel like they could help them. Let me assure you, they are all liars and I am highly ashamed of my own self for working there for many years and stooping to their level to earn a few bucks by ripping off the desperate people that came in looking for hope that everyone in the office knew they wouldn't be successful in finding love. Sad. The company in fact sent me out to meet a man on a date even, to silence him from his repeated dissatisfied phone calls about what they have been matching him up with. I am a married women that they sent out on a date with another man, and told me to lie about my age, my career, my marital status, and other areas about me. They falsified the referral form they sent to him about my information, to make me out to be a legit single, younger woman. They also told him I had no kids...I in fact do have children. The purpose was to take one for the team as they put it, and to shut him up for a while (until he met his next match). I am sorry for my part in this so called service. And I have great guilt over the members we have all scammed and lied to, just to get them to pay up and enroll. We will all stand in front of our mighty God one day and answer for what we've done to these poor people. I can only ask for forgiveness for being part of all of that, shame on me, and shame on them (MatchMaker International). They know what they are doing.

Thought when you paid for it, you could pick your date.
Actually no. I worked for Lou, running his Savannah branch. You are paying for compatible matching. You are paying someone else to match you. If you want to pick and choose and take your chances alone you can try match . com.
