This review states that OurTime. The reviewer says that Our Time has got to be one of the worst sites he's ever experienced. He goes on to state that his account was hacked, something that we've heard from numerous reviews.
We don't think that OurTime. Our time has its own problems from the looks of it with romance scammers who joined the site pretending to be legitimate people looking for relationships. Today I got an email on my gmail account stating he didn't get a response from leaving a message on our time and was reaching out via my gmail. I expressed that I was not interested and subsequently Here is the content of the emails from the following address: Your request has been approved and I just happened to meet 3 scammers, all of whom requested money or other very strange statements.
I cannot afford this nor want thi The beginning of this month, I paid for one month's profile. It was Karen Rogerson Kare What I paid for the one month; I should be continuing receiving your service None in my locale.. I did not sign up for this dating service but started getting "flirts" in my email.

We started talking everthing goibg good. Till he used my cell number to message me a Google voice verification code. Which vis a scam to get into your account. I closed my email. Customer service does nothing. When you get nothing but scammers something is wrong, I will agree they don't remove your information.
You are not secure on that site. More need to file a complaint, and I will agree to ban them. They like taking your money but you have to fight to get it back when you don't use their services. I did get mine back. Keep on them people.
If there was a zero star I would give it. When you join for "free," what they really mean is you have to pay to use the site. They then list three options for paid membership: However, when you click on "continue" to get to the payment page, there is no pricing selection from which to choose. I made payment via PayPal, because I assumed, from my past PayPal experiences, that I would be taken to a final check-out screen where the price would be listed and I could either decline the transaction or accept it and make the payment.
Instead of an opportunity to accept and proceed or decline and exit, the only option was "Connect Me! I immediately contacted "customer care," an oxymoron if I ever heard one , to tell them to cancel immediately and refund my card.
I also notified PayPal to dispute the charge, and next, if the charge posts to my credit card account, I will be contacting my bank to dispute it. What a reprehensible way to run a business. These people should be tarred and feathered for such bad business practices.. Online Dating Sites ,. Well, the joke is officially on us. Not only are we having difficulty finding the right romantic partner, but now there are so many online dating.
