I STRONGLY ADVICE PEOPLE NEVER TO PAY BY CREDIT CARD OR SEND ANY MONEY ORDERS ON THIS WEBSITE.
a friend of mine got cheated on this website after he made a payment via his credit card, his account has been suspended for no reason they asked copies of ID and credit card which he did and then nothing, no answer to his emails
and then they ask him to a money order to this address in Australia
PO Box 9304
Gold Coast MC QLD 9726
this I assume the same company as Filipino Cupid and if you Google Filipino Cupid scams you will find hundreds of people who sent payment to the same address and didn't get their money back, I also note that they don't accept any bank transfer which raise a lot of suspicions
so eventually my friend had to contact his bank to issue a charge back to in the process he lost more then 70$.
so i decided to give it a try myself this time using my PayPal account as it s much more safer, after i created my profile and posted my photo, clicked on upgrade, i decided to opt for gold membership to test their service then i had the message "you must link your credit card.." message ??? WTF i had already a credit of 300$ in my paypal ?? why they need to ask for it ?? nevertheless I entered my credit card number.
After 8 hours while logging to my account i had the message "your account has been suspended "WOW" I contacted their customer service and they asked for a refund so having no reply from them I opened a paypal dispute and escalate it.
I eventually got a refund from paypal but note that paypal issue a refund to both merchant and buyer, so they basically got money for 5 hour scam !!!
note that on the billing page of the profile they have automatic billing even if a member dont choose to do that, I read in some forums that some people get billed for months until they had to suspend their credit card with their bank.
1-YOU WONT GET YOUR MONEY BACK.
2-they will suspend your account for no valid reason and you wont get your money back.
3-IF THEY GET YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER THEY WILL KEEP CHARGING YOUR CARD EVEN IF YOU CLOSE YOUR PROFILE.
