i'm not a payed member of match.com i do have a profile on the site i received a message from a women
leaving her email. i contacted her she is a real person from Russia not from thomastown vic as her profile says. now that's raised concern. lead me to believe this women is local but yet from another country you really don't know who your talking too the site puts up fake info on the profiles just to get your money
i also get a lot of spam from match.com affiliate website mydate.com
watch out for that dating site as well it's a scam.i'm very c...
I used match Au after finding it worked well in the UK but very quickly found it to be a massive scam.
The biggest ploy is to make you honk you have been viewed and have messages so you have to pay to see who.
Any messages I got were all from China.
I paid for 6 months the site had a deal if you don’t find anyone in 6 months you get 6 months free.
You have to message so many profiles a month to be eligible which I went above and probably only 5 profiles in 6 months had even opened the email as I found the rest were all fake accounts to lure you in and make you feel like there’s a chance.
Okay, I paid 4 3months Subscription & I get scammers & fakes!
So not impressed Match.com
Are any of the profiles REAL?
Guys are so often a widower........?
I had more interest on my zero payment Lumen with the freaks & geeks!!
Unfortunately an unbelievable amount of fake profiles! If one is going to write a fake profile one needs to check their grammar and sentence structure. You send messages to people who like you but they are unable to respond if they are not a paid member. Honestly, I wouldnt waste my money on here!
Scam scam scam
So you like hot girls with 1 picture this is the place.
A small town in Queensland with a population of approximately 140 people cannot have 80 hot model girls in it.
Who would live at adavale.
Don't waste your money like I did ...
Match doesn't even take the fake profiles down.
Website for Scammers
This website was only my second attempt at internet dating. The site is loaded with fake photos and scammers including the smooth talking Swedish business man. Stay away from this site. There must be better out there.
Total rubbish site. Don't waste your money.
Avoid this site completely; it's terrible. Customer service in Australia don't respond to emails, despite sending many. Customer service in the US give the same robotic response that they can't help you. Forget about refunds, even when you're legally able to get one!
The site is full of widowers from Abbotsford; really? The quality of single men is downright misleading from their advertising (sorry guys). I've 'hidden' my profile as I can't even delete it, because Customer Service won't respond to me to delete it! I've removed all my photos an...d personal information, and yet I still keep getting daily matches!! This shows the matching is complete nonsense, as they're not matching to anything, and a hidden profile! Please avoid this site at all costs. Don't waste your money here.
No refund despite the cooling off period have emails referring the au site.All Abborstford NSW.
No service to rightfully recoup my funds within 2 days of PER COOLING OFF and this was not the site for me. Scam artists ALL from ABBORTSFORD. You have my email and I will report you to the ACCC. Shocking.
Update: False site.
Scam. Everyone comes from Abborstford in Sydney. I live in Brisbane. Can't get my money back to spend on a respectable site. Disgusted.
Had someone from 'Sydney' contact last night and apparently lived in Scotland and worked in the Gold Trade. Can't get my money back despite trying to cancel under cooling off condition...
Full of fake profiles.
Stay away from this dating site. I have not had one genuine person contact me. Full of fake profiles.
The first one pretended to be a widower who was born in Sweden, businessman etc and the second one, just now, said he was from Brisbane. I did a FB and linkedin search and there was no history, no friends. Typical scammer. What is wrong with these people? On top of that Customer Care doesn't allow me to submit my message because I have requested a refund. I have to use the Chat line which is not available atm. The photo the latest one used is below. Unfortunately, the first one's profile disappeared before I could get a photo.
$$$ Down The Drain
Was victimized by dodgy members who had multiple identities. Too many "Sad lonely widowers" living in abbotsford" really? Just upsetting how the company actually is into decepting people. Their membership fee is really pricey and you hardly get any views let alone messages.
Look elsewhere for love - you waste your time and money here
Talk about a waste pit of widowers on this site!
Every second bloke I have been matched with is a widower, lots of guys that supposedly live in Abbotsford Sydney and they have strange age range selections, for e.g what 40 something year old guy is really looking for a women aged between 30 and 79? Come on, 79 years of age -these profiles are not real. They are phoneys and zombie profiles.
After one week on this site the matches have dried up and no one responds to your messages.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the IT programmers of all these d...ating sites, (e harmony , zoosk , match, elite singles etc), just keep old and deleted profiles on the database so as to appear that there are loads men and women on these sites. If you go on other sites they sometimes steal peoples photos and put them on another online site.......food for thought isn’t! This is identity theft outright! And you think that the same person appears on another site under another name, and it was the individual that did it. Nope, I think it’s the IT programmers that are stealing photos from old and deleted profiles and utilising them on these sites.
Match.com is complete rubbish
This site is absolute rubbish. There is no easy way to terminate. No control over distance or age of people contacting you and the contact for the company for help is constantly defective. They charge alot of money for a very poor site.
An absolute scam
I entered this site last week and by the third day I thought something was fishy , I was getting messages from guys who all happened to be picture perfect, to good to be true and all happened to be widowers , what a coincidence, my mistake was not to check the reviews first because they confirm all my suspicions, today I deleted all my info and canceled my account, unfortunately I lost 107 dollars, 3 months subscription which they were too quickly to take it out of my account and they didn’t give you any options since you couldn’t use the site without paying, so much for “free trial “

Clever Scam & 100% Waste of Money
My lesson has been learnt: don't assume because it's on Facebook it must have passed some sort of probity check. I now regret not researching it before making payment. I have emailed Match.com regarding the bogus profiles and scam activity I have discovered and they reply with platitudes and a useless 1800 number. Examples of their fraudulent activity include: bogus profiles of dozens of women living in Australian place-name locations where no humans reside; two women with the same name living in two capital cities and having identical profile ...wording - which was lengthy and seemingly unique; blokes appearing in the Daily Review of 24 prospects when I have clearly specified I'm interested in women; profiles being unavailable when they have literally just liked you; one "member" pretended she was in NSW and I discovered she was actually in Malaysia; another "member" pretending to live in a small country town nearby and when she was pressed on details only locals would know she couldn't go past obvious information available on Google; being "liked" by women decades younger than my preferred age bracket who live overseas and interstate; and so on. Avoid Match.com like the plague. Here Endeth The Lesson !
Waste of time and money
Joined hoping to just make friends. Account blocked twice, no reason given and no way to make contact. All inquiries go to the USA and they can't won't help. Short time spent on site reveals it's full of scammers.
Don’t join match.com if you want to find a partner.
I recently joined match.com having had success with it before. Not now, they for some unknown reason they put me down as a 34 year old instead of 71. I cannot change it on site as my password for this requires date of birth to log into it and I don’t the date they registered me under. Have tried every way I can think of to change this, including phoning which goes to answering service, and have not had a response. I have not found a match because the people who match me can’t see me. Would not advise my worst enemy to join this useless dating service.
