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They have withdrawn a service that has been prepaid?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Outdated these days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.
Women won't pay $5 to start a conversation..
Why with the power women have today and high paying jobs you can't fork out $5 for a stamp when you are the ones approaching me, I have no trouble paying if I am the one approaching you. You have screamed for equality but when it comes to money you want to play the old card...
Was good 15 years ago, not so now - no new members in a loooong time.
Over the last 5 years, women on the NSW Central Coast on the site have not changed, nor has the number. These are , dare I say it, old stock. Site did have a good turnover years ago, but not now. Why would someone remain on the SAME site for 5 years ? ...and I know these people aren't fake as I've done done coffee a few times with a few of them.
RSVP pre 2005 was good, now it's crap, as well as expensive.
Would not recommend.
On the plus side, they don't charge to see photos like eharmony do, nor do they have a ridiculous number of questions to go through like POV.
So called Dating Sites its all fake
I have tested most of them with FAKE profile NO photo and didn't spent a cent.
You will most likely be COMMUNICATING with a STAFF member then a paid up member so my advise is KEEP your money its a waste of time.
It is all about computer circulating photos from all around the world.
It is what it is. A dating platform filled with promise. Unfortunately I think you need to be very confident when using a dating site and I am unfortunately not. Lots of married men sadly, players, I think it would work if you are confident and in a good headspace who has the time and patience to sort through the nonsense. Not for me.
A warning to anyone who is not that confident any online dating site can be depressing and confidence destroying
WAY. TOO. EXPENSIVE
I have been on this site forever but the stamps are too expensive!
Why don’t you lower the cost so that we can initiate more contact with potential partners?
For instance, you could charge the same minimum amount for 10 stamps or 3! What’s the difference to you? It’s not like you are selling real stamps, is it?
I just think it’s not competitive anymore with the likes of Blendr, et al. where contact is FREE. Especially as things can often go awry in the first few messages. It’s money down the drain!
Same Typical Suspect Pattern
Yes, I have met some ladies on RSVP in my time.
Rarely did anything develop.
Yes I've met a few real bad ones that flake when it comes to showing up for a date, wont answer their phones or messages and vanish less than 10 minutes into the date.
I take full responsibility as they are some of the risks associated with internet dating and dating in general.
No, I'm hardly catch of the year, however I'd like to live with a little dignity.
I think everyone owes themselves that much.
Definitely not the fault of the RSVP site.
That's not why I...
Do not believe the negatives
I have tried a number of dating sites (elite singles, eharmony and pof) and RSVP is the only one that is truly genuine. I have met up with several members from the site and they have all been what they described in their profiles. I have met people for everything from a single meeting (things just didn't work out) up to a longer term relationship (9 months) and many things in between. A friend of mine met his wife on RSVP. And while what people write in their profiles is not up to the site, the fact that the people are genuine shows the site is...also genuine. Of course you have to be prepared for a lot of knock backs, but again that is nothing to do with the site. To summarise, this site is not bogus or a ripoff and is by far the best online dating site that I have found.

RSVP - Ripoff Susceptible Vulnerable People
they are a total joke nothing but scammers either profiles that don't exist or robots that reply to you once and then get taken offline - except they state - NO LONGER A MEMBER OF RSVP OR MEMBER HAS BEEN REMOVED BY RSVP - it is a total joke and hopefully this might stop other genuine people from falling into the trap of this joke of a site

Scam alert! Spammed by user who was removed, but in replying to the spammer it used stamps
Scam alert! Spammed by user who was removed, but in replying to the spammer before they were banned, it used stamps which rsvp would not replace when I kindly asked them to they would not look into it and just wanted to make it too hard, they only allow 3 contacts for $56 and one of these was the spammer! Then they charged my card a further $56 to renew I fought it through my bank and won! This is a scam site! Rsvp advertise on google as a christian dating site which is deception. Then they keep sending me loads of promotion emails so I demanded they remove me and all data associated with my account! Worst dating site ever do not waste your money!
Way too expensive and for what?
I joined the basic plan and paid $80 odd dollars for 6 months - you'd think that be enough to start a conversation with someone within this dating site BUT in order to actually chat I now am asked to PAY more to connect to men who find me approachable. WHAT? and WHY ? A complete scam. Do not join!
I wish I read these review before handing over my money!
Went onto this site and paid good money for lots of stamps. Their policy said if you don’t get a reply to “kisses” after a certain amount of days we’ll refund to you .....doesn’t happen !
I think an organisation like ASIC needs to have a look at their business model and how they’re treating consumers.
I don't recommend RSVP I recently rejoined and it had many of the same photos as it did ten years ago. It seems odd that genuine profiles would not be updated. I wasted my stamps as whilst the profiles seemed like the guys were looking for genuine relationships all they did was ask for flesh. I did not meet up with any of them. Also you get time and money wasters who let you use your stamps on them when they have no interest at all to keep themselves in the top 100. The site is just scammers and sleeze. I used a prepaid credit card to buy my stamps so I can't review on the level of honesty when it comes to debits.
Dont waste your money guys!
Don't waste your time and MONEY!! Same people are on Tinder,Oasis and other free sites. Don't pay $5 just to send an email that will never be answered or attention seekers looking for their weekly fix! (who would never buy a stamp or could be a false profile).
RSVP is owned by media giant Fairfax and its all about $$$.
Take your time and read the following reviews and if that doesn't convince you "NOT" to join, you are most likely one of those fools who sends money to a Nigerian lover!!
June 16th 2018 Update: RSVP doesn’t refund unanswered...paid emails and plenty of "FAKE" profiles. I purchased the 24 stamp deal, had about 4 responses from ladies asking to make contact and the other ladies who asked for an email never even responded. Contacted rsvp support team and all you get is a generic response from some dude called [name removed]. So pretty much a waste of time and defiantly money. Their terms of conditions are misleading and to their advantage, so you will never get a refunded stamp! Its just an all out money grab by big business.
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
