Consumers filed complaints with the IC3 against a dating site regarding two issues.
The first issue is that consumers were contacted by potential suitors stating they were out of the country and in need of money. The suitors then claimed they were affiliated with the IC3, and they had been “interrogated and investigated.”
Your BBB warns consumers to never wire money to people they don’t know.
The second issue consumers had with the dating site was the difficulty of cancelling their free membership and never being able to get in contact with the company.
Your BBB recommends the following advice when dealing with free trial offers:
- Get business contact information. Avoid companies that won’t provide basic information, such as the full business name and address.
