Original Complaint against OKCupid published at DirtyScam.com says, verbatim –
There is a lot of problem going on in here. People believe that creating an account on this OKCupid can help them find love. What a joke? This site is, instead harmful. It can steal your personal information, charge you unnecessarily and can update your profile too.I made my profile on this shitty website only for fun. There was no serious intention and I was not willing to pay for anything. After creating my profile, which was incomplete, I did not check it for a week or so. I started getting likes and messages. The notifications were all over my email inbox. Mistakenly, I clicked on one of the links in the email and I was thrown to my profile only to find that a lot had changed.I had many messages from women from across the world. However, the most disturbing thing that I noticed was my own profile. The information had changed. The introduction has changed, and the photo was also not mine, some guy in his 30s.I checked the messages and they all were replies to my message that I never sent on my own. While I tried to click the images on the profile, it asked me to make the payment for the subscription and threw me on the payment page. Just to check what was happening, I paid for one month. This was my biggest mistake.I also changed the password and corrected the profile as usual. After two days, when I tried to access my account, it was suspended. So, I emailed the customer care for answers. All this was happening was not at all weird. I knew sooner that it was a scam.These guys kept ignoring my mails. I tried calling the number which came with the credit card payment receipt. That wasnt working either. I thought I lost the money. I kept calling and emailing them. But, no reply. After a month, the amount was again deducted. My account was suspended, how can they deduct the amount.Later, I cancelled my card and requested a new card from my bank. I am yet trying every possible way to get the refund or at least get the account working. I have also checked the reviews and they do not say a very good story. All are filled with weird experiences. Some reviews say that they lost yearly subscription the same way.I also believe that my profile was misused by the website itself. They did that on purpose to entice me for paying. And, I fall for it, completely my fault. These guys should be sent to prison. I have never seen such a misleading website before.These people are scammers. I am going to try until this website admin gives up. If you are trying out this website, this is the time to close your accounts. If you have entered your credit card details, you must cancel your card after you cancel your account. Or else, you would be left with no choice further.
