There was a definate pattern I used to get 2 or 3 a day same format but they wandered around the country. I didn't realise that even the 'contacts' were fake until someone explained it.
I reported every single one but as soon as they got thrown off they re submit in a different area with a different name. It seems that this is the acutal company that is pulling this scam, not the members themselves.
When one gets to a certain age, it just seems like too much trouble to go out in the hope of finding a suitable male companion. 'Maybe there is something to be said about internet dating.
I decided to have a look, and to cut a long story short, I ended up signing up to Be2 dating. I answered a few questions and they gave me a summary of the type of person I was likely to be compatible with, and I could do a search in my area for suitable matches, so I just thought, 'Oh well, go for it and see what happens.' However..Be2 wouldn't let me go any further without signing up for a 'Premium' membership, which would cost me £5.00. This was no way for me to meet someone, and to be honest I really couldn't be bothered.Biography: Just Kidding Films (JKF) was founded on the principle of promoting cultural unity using comedy as the vessel.Founders Bart Kwan and Joe Jo possess exceptional chemistry given their similar experiences growing up in the streets, while also exceling in higher education, thus making their approach to comedy refreshing and revolutionary.Be2 dating is a dating site to be avoided at all costs.
The company is fake and fraudulent, and will steal money from your bank account because they don't give you clear information in their terms and conditions. I know many people who have found their partners through online dating sites. Having said that, a single female work colleague and I had a discussion at work one day, (me being single also) and pondered over whether we could ever find our ideal guys, given the fact that we were always too tired after work to bother going out to meet someone.
I can't say I'm unhappy being single, I've got plenty going on in my life to keep me happy, and I'm certainly not lonely, but I thought it would be nice to meet a like-minded guy, with whom I could share a friendship.
I was on a certain social networking site one day when an ad caught my eye, reading along the lines of 'Find love in your 50s'.
I never did find out what the hell they were after, obviously as a scam it must have worked because of the sheer persistence of it. Perhaps advertising myself as the original Grumpy Old Git, didn't have any appeal. Everyone who joins is given a list of 'matches', but it turns out these matches aren't real people. They could make an honest living doing things the right way, without using underhanded deceitful ways, and I don't know how the people who work for them sleep at night, knowing they are targeting and stealing from trusting individuals. They are now chasing me because they tried to take a new payment even after they confirmed membership was cancelled.
It's just a way of enticing you to pay for the premium membership. I can't stress enough how important reading the T&Cs is. I hope you find a decent site that doesn't rip you off. I'm so glad my bank card was stolen or they would have had another £149 from me. Be2 are the biggest scam artists on the planet luring in their victims with a £5 one month offer.
Luckily for me, my bank's fraud prevention department had picked up on it straight away and sent me a text (while I was still in the bank trying to sort it out) and they blocked the payment.
