Absolutely pathetic and horrible site
Absolutely pathetic threatening to send debt collectors etc to get me to pay up hahaha I’ll just go straight to the police if that’s the case. As what their doing is fraud pure and simple!!! Oh and there’s is no option to cancel, what a joke!!!
Avoid at all costs
I wish that I had read these reviews before signing up. Scam city. It says that there is a better than normal percentage of women on here, but i would say it's because most of them are fake. So many scammers, and I advise you - do NOT go to Google Hangouts. So many try to send you there even after just hello, how are you.
Even if they are real girls, they will try to scam or blackmail you. Stay away. I'm in the process of cancelling my subscription and profile months before the 6 month subscription "expires".
One start rating, as it won't go half or zero.
All what is said below is true.
Get the payments stopped, which i achieved last year. This can only be achieved by YOU getting the payments stopped. They will do F-all to stop the unauthorised withdrawals. After a few months, you may get a threatening email trying to black mail you into paying hush money, to stop public exposure. The standard letter was very amateurish, copy and paste and drafted by a fool.
Never give in to blackmailers.
I guarantee they're ethnics, (Baboons) operating from the UK or abroad. Scum.
The site needs to be taken down,along with the scammers running it. We have people working to track this garbage down:, to do just that.
Do not join!!!!
From the way they market their payment plans, it appears as if you can join
for a fixed period of 3, 6, or 12 months. This was a bit misleading as I believed my membership would expire after that.
My membership was just automatically renewed by them, for ANOTHER 6 month period. The devil is in the detail - I tried to cancel immediately, by emailing them. They said to cancel, I have to:
* give them 6 WEEKS notice.
* fill in THEIR appropriate cancellation form, SIGN it, and send it back to them.
* all the details are in the small print.
I cannot recall putting my signature to any document when I was joining. Now they want me to fill out a form, sign it and send it back to them.
SCAM site, no real people difficult to cancel subscription
There are few if any real women on this site, just bots
They make it difficult to cancel the subsciption
They want a signed PDF to cancel, which smells like potential identity theft
DO NOT USE THIS SITE!

Complete Scam, Money Stolen
Requested a refund the night I signed up. Had to wait a week to cancel. Now the they refuse to refund my money, but tell me I have 'access to the services until June 2019'. Why would I want access to their services if I requested a cancellation? They reference 'terms and conditions' but their obligation to their customers and to stand behind their service should supersede that.
I should add that there is no option to cancel in the first week via the C-Date website as they 'need to wait for payment to process'. If you ever needed a reason to run a mile from a website it's that.
Awful, awful experience. Intend to email and post to as may review boards as it takes to get my money back.
Stay away from c date. I cancelled my membership but they emailed saying i had to write a letter even though they acknowledged my email. All members are fake. I never received one message. They try to make cancelling impossible. They are trying to get money out of me now from 2 years ago. I will make it my lifes mission to warn every person I can about them. I will not pay this $200 and i will take them to court and sue them for disreputable business practices and im sure i can find a lot of other people that have been scammed by them
Impossible to end membership
You cannot end the membership with C-Date, they will keep taking money from your credit card. Disabling / deleting your on-line profile won't work. They require you to send a fax to a number that does not receive the fax, I tried. So I cancelled my credit card, and got a new one with different card number, that worked. What prompted me to write this review is just received an email from a debt collector, Upper Class Collections, asking me to pay up amount due: $335.97 which of course I won't pay.

Complete Scam - No Real women at all
Do not believe the positive reviews about this website. I have been on this website for a few weeks and I have not chatted with 1 real person. They try to lure you onto email or Google Hangouts to chat offline. If you get sent a photo or they have posted a photo on their profile then you must do a reverse photo search using google images or Tineye. In about 80% of the cases that I searched I found a match which usually led back to a scammer watch website. These photos are usually stolen from Facebook, Instagram, porn and modelling websites....In one case the photo was stolen from a US Administration Security website. In all the chats I have had the person is travelling overseas. Inevitably they are stuck there and cannot get home and end up asking you to send money to help. Whatever you do never send money unless you have physically consummated the relationship - you know what I mean. The last person I spoke with was setting me up for a $25,000 scam. I was able to trace the email address - and yes there are websites to help you do all this - and then had a bit of fun with it. There were a number of signs I picked up on early in the conversations that made me wary. She said she was from Milan and when I sent a photo of me in Milan she did not make any comment or acknowledge that it was in Milan. In most cases the profiles are actually set up by Nigerian scammers and you are actually chatting with a man. In most cases they are pretty average but in some cases they can be very convincing. Some actually drag the process out over a number of days and weeks to seem like they are being cautious themselves. They will never agree to a video chat - because they are not the person in the photo. They also rarely answer the questions that you ask. If they give you a name and email address then do your research. Check to see if they have a facebook page under their name. In most cases you will not be able to find them. In some there maybe a facebook page but there is usually no detail and maybe only a few pics liked by 1 or 2 people. This is fake.
Appalling dating site
Just don't. So easy to sign up, so difficult to get out. Why must I send a letter or fax or email attach their scanned pdf form to Luxembourg to stop my credit card being AUTOMATICALLY (no other option) debited? The owners of this site should be ashamed of themselves. Once a full member, there is NO search function - you can only see about 12 members' pixellated photos - yes all the profile thumbnail pics are intentionally distorted so you can't just see who you might be interested in. Instead you have to message them to get them to undistort t...heir profile image. Also, the only body types you can define yourself are 'slim', 'average' and 'a few extra pounds'. Fake profiles too, surprise surprise! It's all too easy to sign up to these scams when emotionally vulnerable so if you're reading this PLEASE just step back and think! There is probably no such thing as a legitimate casual dating site.
99% scam, stay away!
Tried a few of them (OKcupid, match.com, Tinder), and this is the worst.
Almost all female profiles are fake (either site -generated or commercial operators) and out of the specified search region to boot. The match criteria are cursory and laughable.
I conversed with maybe two genuine persons, the rest of the "communications" was scam winks to me or no response to mine.
Questions & Answers
I am only one of many customers who have been scammed by this mob C.Date They have hired a collection agency after I tried to cancel the subscription after the first month 9-12 months ago. I spoke to the agency they are an absolute scam because the women were just bots or didn't exist! What is my course of action?
I have just received a second debt collectors letter based in the uk this time. I am a bit worried this will effect future credit ratings. Are you still receiving threats?
