At that point, I asked him to send me a selfie with a current news paper headline in the photo. I do not know his real name, but every email I get, I asked to skype or for their phone number or them coming to me, I never hear again. He claimed to be half Swiss and half English, a civil engineer, reside in NY (where I live), that he won a contract for a project in Cape Town, S. I demanded he give me his full name (not that he gave me his real name) and then I told him I was onto him and will take him down. I couldn't reach him after that by phone or text, so I emailed him with the same sentiments I expressed on the phone. I subsequently filed two complaints with Chemistry.com, and a report with the FBI, FCC, and the FTC about my incident.Of course, that was the last time I heard from him. He knows my type and uses that to send emails from professional men that I would answer. Africa where he traveled to, and then was a victim of a carjacking/robbery at gunpoint when his Mac Book Pro laptop and i Phone 6 were stolen. And this guy chose to use the same "story" he and his fellow scammers have used to coerce a single, middle-aged woman to go out to the "nearest Best Buy or Apple Store" to buy and then send him a replacement Mac Book Pro and i Phone without even meeting me yet?! Fortunately, the only personal information this scammer got out of me were a few pics of me, my email address, and my phone number.It was obvious it was scripted and he didn't respond to my questions fully. I joined this site in January, and I have had 7 emails from 7 people, which were bogus. I joined about a month ago and paid for a six-month subscription.Soon he said he was working on a contract in Cape Town. One man on the site got my attention, and he is stealing photos and information from people to meet women. Within days of joining, a fellow member contacted me through the site.In April 2008, Chemistry launched a new set of advertisements signifying the second phase of its long-term strategy, by taking the conventional wedding vows shared between two people and re-inventing them "Chemistry style".
Once you've completed your profile, you can access detailed information including charts and graphs explaining the results of your personality test. There are no real people (men in my case) on these online dating sites. I lead on a scammer for a while to see where it would go. I talked to Hazel (who said she does not have a manager) and she agreed that I did turn off my auto-pay BUT when I paid for the 3 month trial it turns it back on (to make sure users don't lose service)... The company is just a cash cow to generate money from people looking for love. move ahead 2.5 years and I find this strange 125.00 charge on 11/1/2016 and on looking they have been charging my card that same amount every 6 months since.If you are new to online dating and want support every step of the way, offers more than many other guided dating websites in our online dating site reviews.Chemistry provides not only guided communication online, but tools for meeting offline and receiving valuable feedback.Van moved to the US four years ago and lives in Falls Church, VA. After a few months he wanted to borrow a little money and he paid it back. So Mr Smooth tells a good story but if you keep careful details of the stories and then reinquire the details change... So girls just keep careful track of the details and do not lend money. The auto-pay option being re-enabled is horrible practices and my not seeing it is my mistake but once they are aware of it the ignorance is quite clear... After reading several complaints on this Consumer Affairs site about Chemistry.com, I felt compelled to not only add to the list of complaints but also to thank all those who posted complaints.But, as a researcher, I looked through property records etc. Most of his emails were about what he wanted in a woman, what love meant to him, etc. Stay beautiful ladies and avoid the southern charmer structural engineer guy. Because of you, I was able to prevent a scammer from defrauding me and dodged a major bullet.New to online dating or not happy with the dating site you’ve been using?With a growing number of online dating sites — and more and more people finding significant others online — it’s hard to know where to start.Most dating sites are concerned only with assessing compatibility, but Chemistry's matchmaking system is designed to help you find both of these elements.From the moment you join the site, it’s easy to see that unprecedented levels of time and effort went into designing a dating system that works on both levels.
