RSVP scam people into buying stamps with fake profiles
Absolute rip offs, just when you have no more stamps you receive a kiss back from someone, and what do you know there is a special on stamps, so you buy them and send a message to the person, who then disappears off RSVP!!
Contact RSVP and they refund your stamp but you purchased 3 because some scammer contacted you back, RSVP have your money they don't care, this has happened numerous times in the past year, over it.
A big letdown
I have been on RSVP for a few weeks. I paid an intro special of $40 for one month... well it’s been completely underwhelming. There are hardly any decent men on there.... the ones I’ve sent a kiss to who are looking for exactly what I want have rejected me replying with one of the choices (why on earth would you write that you’re not wanting to take anything further right now when you’re on a dating site???!!!) The responses are stock standard. I have a couple of friends who became engaged after meeting their partner on rsvp but that was a few ...years ago. I am finding bumble .... and even tinder.... much much better. A big range of men.... attractive, easy to contact, FREE. I am currently dating 3-5 men a week. All have been respectful... my advice.... Give RSVP a miss.... too expensive, not a high caliber of clients.... you do have to search on tinder and bumble for decent guys but at least it’s free and there is a huge variety of people! Plus, I have two friends who got married after meeting on Tinder. There’s hope yet
Too much of a coincidence that scammers ‘appear’
I had some success here years ago but now it’s quite different. It’s too much of a coincidence that these gorgeous, successful businesses men in my age group all seem to ‘appear’ just as I’ve run out of stamps! Yes, they will refund that one stamp but then you’ve still spent all that money without any confidence that anyone is ‘real’. They refused to refund me when I told them this. Save your money, only serial daters,scammers or desperates on here!
A shadow of its former self
Was last on RSVP a few years ago and recently rejoined. There is certainly a great deal less people on there. Previous searches would come up with hundreds, now just a handful of results. Plus they foolishly are keeping the extortionate stamp costs. Given there are other options with great many more people on them, and are either free or a great deal cheaper to use then don't bother with RSVP. Time for Fairfax to radically change the product offering or continue to slide into irrelevance.
Too many fake people!
Too many fake people, the premium members are just as bad as the basic members! Men sent you a wink and when you respond, they hardly reply or respond to messages. They suddenly dissapear or just play mind games! Everyone on there are so fake, lie about their age, profession and the profile photos are so old, 40-55yr with profile photos and gallery photos which most of the pics are so old and taken 20 plus years ago! who do you think you kidding, put recent photos up and its very frustrating for genuine people! I wouldn't go there again or recommend this site to anyone. I rather go out and meet someone the old fashion way!
Not the most trusted dating site
RSVP claim they dont have fake profiles on there site, but i say they do. I am 55 year old male and i joined rsvp but only to receive fake winks from women half my age, and that's a ploy to get men to buy stamps, When i complained to rsvp they always had some excuse, when in fact i proved rsvp are scammers beyond all doubt, but they refused to refund my money, i used one so called stamp on a fake profile they have.
Time waster and hardly to be trusted
RSVP has been around for awhile and claims to be 'most trusted' so I got sucked in thinking there would be a higher number of genuine people. DON"T TRUST IT. The system itself is pretty old, clumsy and inconsistent. I PAID for Premium services that, for example, let you 'lock' certain criteria but the system still sent supposed matches outside those parameters (and they recycle their matches which they denied when I pointed one out). The search fields are limited, you can't narrow the geographic distance very well but the worst is just a LOT o...f the men are just playing games. I only actually met a few guys - not for me - but at least they were willing to meet face to face. Most just seemed to want to chat and would avoid when it got to the point of trying to actually speak. I had tried it 2 years ago just briefly and found MANY of the same guys still there. If they were serious about finding someone or any good they'd have been gone. A lot of them just sit and wait for you to pay the stamp - fundamental problem with the system. I had to write RSVP to stop my credit card being charged again as the system doesn't let you let you stop your payment. NOT recommended. They could improve if they made EVERYONE pay even a bit - might get rid of some of the idiots - and stop people window shopping.
Too many scammers - stamps expire so you waste your money.
Lots of scammers on this site. I contacted RSVP and asked for a refund for purchase of stamps I used to contact someone who turned out to be a scammer among for money and was refused. The standard reply is that there is nothing wrong with the product I purchased. I disagree when I purchased something to contact someone who's identity was not verified. Therefore, their product is at fault and not fit for the purpose intended. Also stamps shouldn't have an expiry date ... what a wraught!
rsvp (FairfaxMedia) is a bunch of lying, two-faced discriminating facists
My profile was "suspended" without notice after one month and several "stamp" purchases. No reason given. An exchange of emails as to the reason why - nothing! They (rsvp) even had the audacity to ask for a copy of my driver's licence and passport "to prove who I said I was".
I replied "you're joking of course, as if I would send such legal documents to them" (rsvp), and in any case, they had accepted my Visa card in payment, so as a "merchant", they would have access to the information required.
Turns out that after several complaints to the...
Use at your peril. They use your photos years after your membership to scam for new memberships
We are aware of old messages and photo approvals being sent out. Their is a long wait on support.
old accounts enabled to drive up interest a week before they have membership sales and to scam people thinking they have matches
A complete waste of time and money
This site is a complete waste of time and money. Most of the men on here have been there for EVER!! Some over 12 months. Most of them seem to have either big tickets on themselves or use this site as a bit of an ego trip to reply that they are not interested to anyone who sends them a kiss, if you even get a response at all.
I really do not understand where they are coming from, none of them seem to match their profiles, I think they must all think they are still in their 20' or 30's. Don't waste your money to use use this site and if you ...
Unauthorised payments did not approve direct debit
I paid once via my credit card for a broke single girlfriend( i am married do not require this business whatsoever) to use this site for a month.At no time did i authorise ongoning payments to be taken from my credit card EVER!!
I have now discovered after checking my online banking statements this mob have taken 3 unauthorised payments for past three months from my credit card. I am not even a registered member and have no profile! Seems as soon as you provide credit card details you are considered a member?? Wouldnt you need to apply and se...

Works for me
I joined RSVP without paying and worked on polishing my profile & posted my recent photos then it’s like fishing you have to be patient and you will catch variety of fish and slowly fine tune & Select right ones. So far I have many dates over coffee and have not paid a cent for any stamp or membership fees. I have been on it for almost six months but you can take a break anytime to stop the flow and get back to it anytime. I took a break for two months now back again.
So far I am happy with it. I have tried Elite Singles & eharmony they do no...

Possible fake member fraud, forfeit of stamps consumer fraud???
Yes many fake profiles, talk to you to keep you on site and buying stamps, soon as you start connecting they are, "removed from site"
I have just brought 25 stamps but have been banned from the site even though last week they resolved an issue and never told me any of the female members had complained.
Had to nice contacts there but now cant communicate with them?
They have withdrawn a service that has been prepaid?
This is against consumer law in Australia?
RSVP NOT FIT TO BE RATED 1 STAR. TOTAL DISASTER
I have been removed from this site inspite of having 25 stamps credit. One bit of advise Make sure you do not opt to Subscribe for more than a month. and buy only 3 stamps MAX as this site is a DISASTER. Not fit to be rated 1 star. The parent company i think is in trouble. I rather have the Chinese take over.
Outdated these days
... I like the format better ... But seriously, paying a lot for the chance to chat with someone who might not be interested. And considering a lot of more modern dating apps/sites have free messaging now this seems very old and useless.
What's the point in paying 30+ bucks for 3 stamps with an expiry date when one can join POV for free and drop a quick message to anyone?
UPDATE: you'd think things can only get better. But alas I think not. I'm not a pretty person. But I do have some odd charm that makes some men turn their heads. But I ...feel like I'm in a ghost town when it comes to rsvp. Ontop of that the few men I have managed to engage with have pretty much been pretty vile and nothing more than Tinderboys ... what's the point in having a you have to pay to talk system when all the men treat it like a hookup site? ... amd I'm pretty sure at least one was still married ... ontop of that a lot of men complain that women won't buy tokens. I did and how was a related? With F boys who weren't interested in a relationship ... so I stopped buying tokens and waited for winks to come my way. Because you know. First winker is the payer logic. But something strange happened then. I'd reply to few prospects only to have them not start a conversation ... so conclusion is. Nobody wants to spend money to talk ... how is this company even still running? And just to give you a reference point to the difference. I joined POF 2 days ago and I've had at least a dozen guys drop a real message. Ok most of them are probably Tinderboys too but at least I'm having an actual conversation. Not this kiss/wink than silence crap.
dont bother joining way to expensive for the stamps and if you suspend your payments for a little while and put your a/c on hold they will send you messages that someone has sent you a kiss so you respond to that but no further communication from that so called person they are just trying to get you to buy more stamps. i think its a pretty disgusting practice when they are playing with peoples emotions.
Questions & Answers
If I am "taking a break' but still looking at profiles, can the owners of those profiles see that I have clicked on them at that time or when I resume being active? And does them being a PREMIERE member make a difference to this question?
I do not want to continue to be a rsvp member. How can I discontinue it?
