Non scam dating sites
Since I wrote my original post, I found the agency's website that is representing her. They are charge her a translation fee every time I send an e-mail.
I wrote back and told them what I had discovered, and I wouldn't be writing until I was ready to visit her. I know their wages are low, but she is an engineer.
Is it a case of looking for love in all of the wrong places, or just a few bad apples in an otherwise happy bushel?
Truth is, many boomers often reach their 50s and older and find themselves uncoupled, either through death or divorce; they don't know where to turn.
There may also be a fee for registration and/or finding a "suitable partner". You cannot make direct contact with each other without using the agency.
And there is a class action lawsuit pending in the U. District Court that claims more than 60 percent of the profiles on are fraudulent -- something spokesman Matthew Traub calls an "unfounded allegation in a money-seeking litigation." Then there is another, perhaps darker, side to the consumer complaints: People reporting that they were bilked out of money by those they connected with through an online dating site.
The Better Business Bureau listed online dating sites among its top 10 scams for 2011, and one consumer advocacy group says its members have lost millions from online dating scams.
She is the same age as me (40) and divorced with a child. She claims she only wants to find her "soul mate", marry, and live a happy life; and, of course, I am sure she wants to improve her quality of life. I mean I am not purchasing minutes or paying per e-mail or anything of that nature. The dating site and translator must be making money somehow.
She wants me to visit her in China, and I am seriously thinking about purchasing tickets. I am still a bit skeptical because of all the negative reviews and scams on various websites. The only risk I have is the cost of the trip and hotel accommodations. Your lady may have borrowed money for these services. Can she communicate with you via Skype/MSNYou are exactly right, sir.
