In 20, dozens of consumers told the FOX6 Investigators that they, too, got taken for thousands of dollars. FOX6's investigation prompted a state investigation by the office of Wisconsin Attorney General J. "They specifically prey on people under circumstances where they`re going to make an emotional decision, and they may be hesitant to tell anybody about it," Van Hollen said. "It`s nice that we can actually do something about it -- that individual consumers can feel money in their pocket, relief for them," Van Hollen said.
State law apparently says dating services can't charge more than /month.Do not, I repeat, do not be scammed into giving them your hard earned money!I don't know how these people sleep at night; probably on very nice bedroom furniture and mattresses purchased from commissions obtained from scamming people. It cost a little over 00 for a year and a half membership.He still lives in the same, one-bedroom apartment in Shorewood.

From 2007: Christen Conner / Great Expectations Director: "It's rude to stand up and walk out on a girl." FOX6 Investigators Producer: "Yeah, but it's rude to keep someone here against their will, too." Conner: "I'm not keeping you against your will."
