Ripping Off Suspectible Vulnerable People
An outdated platform that looks like it hasn't changed since the mid 2000s. Still they keep peddling exorbitant prices in the form of microtransactions (3 stamps for $40 or some crap inflated cost) on top of the premium bundle. Most of the users on there have been there for months or even as long as 5 years who are either too picky, playing mind games for their self-validation and ego, hooked up with a date somewhere else and or just forgotten about it and turned into ghosts.
Within 2 hours of signing up you get scammers from far interstate (...WA, SA and TAS predictably) with fake pictures, minimalist profile info requesting winks. They get blocked and reported instantly. Honestly could go on and on but heaps of other negative reviews on here saying the same thing. Get off the computer and go meet people in real life instead of this fake online crap. At least you don't have to pay to chat to someone, as the only guaranteed winners in the online dating game are the crook hosts who run this crapshow!
Robbed and blocked
My sister lives here only several months a year, but she resides overseas. Every year she travels to Australia to be with her daughter, 3-4 times a year, and it's fair to say she lives here for about 6months a year altogether.
She created a profile on RSVP and paid quite a bit of money for stamps. They blocked her account immediately after and no refund was given. Reason: she doesn't reside in Australia. How about at least you refund her, you racist, discriminating scammers?
An absolute scam! Don't waste your money!
I went on RSVP looking for a relationship and 3 months later just deleted my profile $47 poorer. So much dodgy stuff going on there I think the ACCC should investigate. I had one profile engage me in chatting for about 10 minutes. As I went to chat, I noticed her profile name had changed from '[NAME]'... I can't remember exactly what it was... to 'USER_1' which I thought was a bit strange. Then as I watched it changed back again to her profile name. Is this evidence of RSVP running fake profiles? I don't know, but honestly, save your money rather than being 'matched' with non-existent people.
Even you become premium, they spread your profile to anyone you don't wish to. They will NOT refund once you paid.
Don't believe the privacy setting! Even you became a premium member for your privacy reason, they spread your profile to anyone. so totally no meaning to pay for premium. The refund is not accepted even within 2 days. Totally fraud. your question will be tossed around and every day they replied with different answers. You receive only a few matches and most people are not premium and let you pay further to contact them. No meaning to became premium at all. Go to other free dating sites as the service provided gonna be the same. I lost a lot amount of money. I wish anyone became like me.
Fake site mostly
I upload pictures, filled out the profile, nothing offensive or in breach of policy, they approved my profile. I then got a returned 'like', payed $63 to send message and BAM! account suspended. The told me it was because they want to do an ID check but didn't tell me why. So I refused and eventually they gave me a refund and I closed my account. They only did this out of me threatening legal action, btw.
The problem with this and other dating sites is many of the women are either fakes or women who live in fantasy worlds, dont get out much, ...they watch a lot of porn and Home & Away episodes, they confuse love with money and feel it's the guy's role to buy his way into their hearts. So that's the mentality you're dealing with. Do you really want that type of girl? Better option is just to hit the bars/clubs or walk up to girls on the street even, you have a better chance. The girls on dating sites dont actually want a date, they want to tell themselves they do instead. They're dreamers, like the guy who wants to be a famous rock star. Pipe dreams. You can do better and I think you know that, because you ARE better...better than them anyway. Good luck.
Guilty of defame, abuse, harass, stalk, threaten or otherwise offend others.
NO evidence provided BUT guilty and ....
Should we receive further complaints regarding your behaviour RSVP has the right to permanently suspend your profile and purchases made will not be refunded."
Scammer first hit
I am fairly open minded about all this stuff but...first hit turned out to be a scammer who claimed to be from a very big mining firm...Smelled a rat ..especially when he changed his location twice..waste of money
Well designed but not many people on there
The thing I like best about RSVP is that it allows you to send a "wink" or short message, and then allows the other person to choose a pre-set message to decline safely and politely, without fear of backlash. This is often an issue for women on other dating sites and apps who get harassed when they turn men down or don't respond. Having said that, there aren't a lot of people on it compared to Tinder, Bumble and other mobile apps.
Fake... As They Come.
This site makes NO sense at all. Talk about backwards. Should be Revoked. I had 2 memberships over past 2 years had used multiple stamps so far on Time Wasters or Fakes....They replied with winks back from my interest then i sent messages using paid stamps & No reply back . Im talking about 6 or so profiles not only one instance . Two profiles i sent a wink to read it then her profile was removed soon afterwards. Most would say sorry Im am leaving the site or something. Then once your stamps are used all of sudden you receive a discounted fee o...n new stamps. They make it so obvious its a Scam. I do not understand why they charge $36 for membership...then charge you for stamps on top of that...as there are NO incentives all it basically is you can see who viewed your profile. If anything they it should be free the way its designed. In addition to that when you search a profiles they are out dated some some go back to 2018. WARNING. STAY AWAY.
Bad Manners Prevail On This Website
The quality of the men on this website is very poor. They have no manners. I send winks to men and four out of five completely ignore me. It takes approximately 10 seconds to click on one of the "thank you but no thank you" options. I have also had the situation on a few occasions where men sent me a wink and I responded that I was interested and never heard from them again. I certainly would not recommend this site to anyone seriously looking for a partner.
Just another ripoff. ZERO Stars.
Yes, this one is worst than most.
With the modern Internet we can send complex messages around the globe in milliseconds, all for practically free. You can sign up to face book, and in exchange for a few ads (that you also get on RSVP) you can have as many friends as you want, all for free.
So why does RSVP charge you $14 for each "match" you try to contact??
It's not that we wouldn't happily pay $1,400 for an actual match, but like any of these sites, most will be fakes, so you're just wasting your money.
This is a dating site that does not taking safety seriously.
I made a complaint to the website regarding concerns about one of their members - I provided some preliminary information about the member and asked what further evidence they required. I was told to read the Ts and Cs to establish if a breach had occurred. I went back to them letting them know that it appeared numerous breaches had occurred. Instead of letting me know the evidence they required (per my email) they came back saying that it was hearsay and would not do anything - they were not interested at all in the hard and factual evidence that I had.
For a dating site they certainly have no etiquette....no dinner before screwing me over....and all with no lube!
After receiving 2 winks, probably from fake RSVP staff accounts, they offer you a 1 month $39.00 membership. After purchasing a membership all interactions go nowhere as the woman are either single for very obvious reasons (trust issues), they're there to inflate their ego's/scam you/boost their Instagram profiles with no intention of ever dating (and probably receive a commission from RSVP), they're from overseas and try to convince you to send money/direct you to press on their links etc. or they are profiles created by RSVP staff. Dissatisfi...ed I cancelled my membership on the last day of my membership period, which included removing my credit card details, selecting to discontinue the auto-renewal option and terminating my profile etc. but I then discovered that they had debited my credit one day before the existing membership was due to expire and even upgrading my membership to their Premium $56.00 membership. This is an elaborate scam that is only designed to fleece money from vulnerable people.
Waste of time and Money
I had purchased stamps. Even though converstation is initiated by the other person, after use of stamps people do not respond
Lot of fake profiles from Ukraine, China etc.
System must ensure people resond to message since we are kept waiting if we should proceed with someone else or not.
Also I always got profiles outside my desired age range and location. This should be a very simple feature but even that is not working.
This platform works for me.
I'm surprised by the negative reviews. I've not experiencedf fake profiles. I don't consider $12 to meet a woman to be exorbitant. I do get to choose the characteristics that a woman needs to have if we aren't going to have conflict. I have had many wonderful conversations with genuine, single people. Never had a bad experience; but I don't have expectations that everyone I meet will be a perfect match. Biggest problem is the tendency for people to post flattering photos. Something I can live with and still have a good chat over a glass of wine.
rsvp- fairfax media recipe books on catfish
very deceptive misleading upselling stragedy. fairfax media must surely be the .source of CATFISH mode/practice. example i live in a regional town & i recieved a conversation message from a lady who i've known socially about 10 years ago & no longer in this country. on replying with general banter/ rsvp no longer a member. so went on when i tried conversation with other women profiles . no credability here & customer service has a scripted reply/misdirection to any concerns you flag. caveat emptor - delete account details- terminate membership-go and read a novel-join a club- volenteer service etc.
Questions & Answers
There are millions of people looking for a partner and dozens of dating sites, but it seems all are frauds, some bigger than others! Can't believe this is the state of affairs in First World countries like the US and Australia in the 21st century!!
What an irony!!!
Is there any organisation, government or private, that can be relied upon to find and punish dating service fraud??
1 way to protect yourself initially is to only use AUST POST debit card.You only put wanted amount on it @ P.O.They can't withdraw more..You cld -" contact the P.M-" email site & complain about too much entrapment & ask for a investigation into sites practices..Basically sites are a-" contract you enter into-" so legal..BEWARE..maybe local social clubs a better spend,more sensible
where on rsvp does it say you have to live in Australia to join? I live in the usa, signed up under Sydney then told account suspended unless I explain why I was using Sydney, the answer is simple if I put my usa postal code it won't let me sign up
