    Similar to most comments they too took my original user ID, blocked it, refused to send me my password so I was forced to create a NEW user ID. I paid them $64 and received not much. Then they began to send me email's 32 to be exact belonging to my original user ID. When I tried to open them it took me to the payment option screen. Funny how you receive 32 email's under one profile and very little under the profile you actually paid for. I have been sending email's to their customer service dept for 5 days. In the end I told them I was reporting them to AMEX as fraud. They have now sent me a tel # to ring customer service. 1-866-727-8920

    This site is definitely a rip off...I have even gone so far as to request a refund but good luck on that, huh? Just a site for users and players. I joined on impulse and have regretted it ever since. Please don't make the same mistake I did...you could get the same promises this site offers for "free". Spread the word...innocent people are falling for this crap every day and this site's promises are not kept. Post your comments everywhere until someone checks into this scam. Seniorpeoplemeet=garbage. Hindsight is 20/20 but I wish i had used my money elsewhere. Help!

    I'm with SeniorPeopleMeet for the express reason of friendship and possibly more. Ideally with an honest, down to earth individual seeking same.

    #1. We e-mailed for three months having fun and I thought) getting to know one another). He finally asked to meet me. We set everything up, time, phone, place, etc. and left me with egg on my face. Thank you very much.

    #2. "Poor widower" from Las Vegas. Sent pictures of son and self. Was "in love" me after 7 or 8 days. Said he was on his last business trip to S Africa with son, and then retiring. Never answered my questions. Finalization - he said he lost his wallet with $12,00 and credit card. Couldn't eat or live. Was lost - cry cry. Asked me for $3,500 and I said no can do. He then asked for $350 and cried again. I offered him a tissue.

    Where do these folks come from?

    Replied to JoAnnMartin @Jo Ann Martin I can offer you my story. I started out on Marriageminded which is an affiliate of Seniorpeoplemeet. I met a man who was from "NY" and was in W. Africa on a gold-buying trip for his own investment. Wasn't long till the request for money started. At first I fell for it but it was always something else. I have been watching these sites and I have found the same MO. These people are from Ghana. They are running a huge fraud scam. For me, they were using the name Samuel Clerk. What they do is either steal a person's identity, laptops, etc., to get information then they will use the picture of the person to post on websites. I have come across 3 so far. I have also found three Samuel Clerks on MySpace and interestingly, they all come from the same area, are all engineers and all in Ghana on business. I had one ask me to borrow money to get his tractor fixed as he was on a road crew with his business and needed to get it fixed. I asked for his driver's license for proof of who he is and he did send me one. I had it checked out by the local police and also looked at the address on the license. Surprise, surprise, the address was for a 2.5 million dollar house which is currently on the market and the police said it was probably a scam.

    You can usually tell if it their emails are from Ghana as the English will be very poor but be careful as there are translators out there that can translate into English. They will, however, slip up. You can also find the source of your email. Look on line and you can find out how to do it for your particular provider. Yahoo is probably the easiest. I had one tell me he was a friend of Samuel Clerk's and had money that he had asked him to send to me so I could in turn send to the "workers" to pay them but they couldn't find Samuel. He told me he was in Australia but when I traced the origin he was in fact in Ghana. I asked him and he said the computer was bought in Ghana but then he told me the name of the hotel in Australia where he was staying and low and behold, they never heard of him.

    I have decided to make it my goal to make sure that these guys are put away. So beware....

    Joined SPM about three weeks ago. Have only actually corresponded with one person, who turned out to be unsuitable. This site seems to have a lot of fake profiles, and appears to auto generate fake flirts from these profiles. When you open up a flirt message and then close it, a pop-up window appears to ask if you'd like to pay $4.95 per month to find out when your e-mails are opened by the person who sent you a flirt. How I discovered the fake flirts was by noticing that someone who sent me a flirt wouldn't respond to a request for a chat nor a short e-mail, despite the fact that the site said that this person was online. I also got an earlier flirt from someone else whose profile had suddenly disappeared. I wonder, how is it that someone who no longer has a valid profile on the SPM site can send out a flirt? I smell a rat here. Avoid at all costs.

    Replied to Scammed_3295 @Scammed Exactly my experience - I even put on my profile to send a message rather than a "Flirt". On top of that, I started receiving direct emails from "members" of various dating websites! This world is a dangerous place ... thank you SPM.com for making it a little more dangerous!

    Here we are in 2011 and still having the same problems with SPM. I wish I had read this before I joined SPM but the good part is that I have only joined for 1 month..twice (yes, twice). I would love to speak with Lisa from SPM because I have found nothing but men (I believe..they could be anybody) and some are good and start out slow and they all eventually go for the throat with wanting money. The first guy wanted money so I could put mine with his to buy our home. The 2nd guy wanted to have money for me to fly his one home and meet me and then I would get him to TX by my own means. I am smart enough to say that they never got a penny from me but they are like roaches crawling out from the wood. All of you BE CAREFUL. I just don't think there are any good men out there...and you found one...well, good for you but I think you might just be one of the few. I would love to get my money back but....it is a lot of time wasted and I feel it is better off being by myself than to put yourself out there again.

    Replied to Kristy_3261 @Kristy Kristy. There are good men out here. I feel the same way about a lot of the women. I have the feeling that most women cannot open their mouths without lying. I always wonder why it is so hard for them to tell the truth.

    I agree with the other members who paid a fee to receive a service for 'x' amount of months and did not get the service they paid for. I signed up on Jan 6, 2011 for a 6 month special and today is Jan 15th (not even 20 days) and I am unable to sign on the site, when I input my card info to get my password, it says my account is not active and is closed.........are you kidding me?? Oh wait, I can get assistance from customer service....no wait, there is no phone # to be found anywhere on the site. I have yet to get a response on the e-mails I have sent. I say buck up and take the hits you have coming to you. What goes around comes around and God help you when it does. Everyone has their time and yours is coming, trust me it really does happen and when it does, it won't be pretty, it never is.

    You will be found somewhere, somehow by someone and will take you down, guaranteed. How dare you take advantage of people who (for the most part) are truly sincere, honest adults looking for companionship and not grow old alone. These are people over 50, some on limited incomes and not young kids that you are taking advantage of, I say that ranks beneath scum!

    They say, either don't complain or do something about it, right. Well, here is our chance to form a large group (law of large numbers which this site obviously has from comments I have read). I say every dissatisfied customer send an e-mail, tweet, twitter or whatever any other means of our new technology you have access to inform people of this corrupt site, splatter it's name, website address, and tell them to stay away. Start today, will send to truth and fiction sites, whatever you can think of just do it.

    When people bond together, things will work and this will take off like wild fire from there. It would cause a slow, painful, long lasting burn for this so called dating site. Let's start now, send the truth out about this site to everyone you know and hopefully this will hit the hands of a national TV news staffs, radio stations, it only takes one known person to get a hold of something like this and who will assist in taking the next step with the help of the legal system.

    Replied to michelle_3201 @michelle I believe that everyone on SeniorPeopleMeet.com who has ran into the same problem with their email being changed and their password being changed should set up a website, get together, and file a class action law suit. Maybe if they are the ones losing money they will either shut down or fix the problem. I would not be surprised if the site is not run by some of the very scammers from Ghana that are scamming us.

    Lost four months of my life engrossed in falling for a fictional SeniorPeople person who was indeed wonderful, through Yahoo, emails, and phone calls. With all the money he had working at his foreign country job it did come as a surprise when he finally could not come home because his money was tied up in his bank in the US. He tried many avenues before finally asking me. I did not send money. I had already denied another person on SPM. I just was not expecting this one to be a scam. I had told him about the first person and he was angry that I had communicated with him. The person in Europe that I spoke with on the phone was an excellent actor and totally sold me. What a heart break to discover the person you have fallen for is a creation of this scammer's mind. I investigated. The name and address in the states was a real person, but not the person in the pictures I had. I sent them the pictures and they verified it was not him. I have no way of knowing who that person is, perhaps someone who had been on the dating site and sent in his pictures? Stolen ID's, stolen hearts, stolen money. Lots of victims.

    Replied to Chrisrunion @Chris runion My email and password was changed and I do not know how, I have emailed them a message and it says it takes 48 hours for a reply! My imagine that. There are so many scammers on this site, my advice is to stay away from it totally! Some of the scammers are so cool at it! I would give this site and most men on it a big fat zero! Ladies be careful! I had paid for six months and I just know I will not get any of my money back! I will not get on another site! Too many scammers! I so agree with everyone on here.

    Replied to JoyceNeubak @Joyce Neubak I had the same thing happen. My e-mail was changed and senior people sent me a message notifying me of the change. They stated that if I did not make the change I should log in to clarify. Unable to log in as someone had changed my password also and my e-mail was no longer recognized as having an account with them. All this happened after I reported a scammer. I did not hear anything about the scammer I had reported. Fortunately I had only signed up for one month at a time, which by the way was more expensive than what was stated on the site to begin with. I called and reported that my visa was compromised and my bank has put a hold on that card, invalidating it. I will not be joining any of these sites in the future.

    I joined this site using a promotion for 1 month. My charge card was billed for 3 months and not at the discounted price on the advertisement. When I logged into 'my account' it showed my initial subscription as 3 months so I could not fight it with my card company. I have no idea how they pulled this off however I think Phil McGraw should be held accountable for the scams. I have received messages from people who "are no longer active members" and I wonder how did they contact me then? I had joined this site once before 4 yrs ago but at the time I was really too busy to keep up with it. I did have some messages and it seems once a reply was sent the initial sender disappeared. It wasn't too important to me back then so it didn't really register. Now when I saw the ad for just one month @ 12.95 I figured it was worth it just to see if this was something I'd like to pursue. It amazed me that there were so many men looking for long term relationships and yet not one in my area ever contacted me. I had many from far off places but who knows if they were even real. I never replied to any of those messages but the sentence structure and grammar led me to believe the men were not English speaking even tho' their profiles showed them to be in the states. I hope I can figure out a way to get this out publically, like on the news or Dateline (no pun intended!). Even if Dr. Phil would publically denounce these sites instead of just claiming he is not responsible for them would benefit the public.
