In the meantime, she contacted the Citizens Advice Bureau, which provided some information on her consumer rights.Searchmate has disputed Aileen’s claims and said it had not received any correspondence from her after the letter was sent in November.Most people on these dating websites are just looking for a bit of fun, but I find that all a bit seedy.I didn’t want to put myself through all that.” The man, 54, from the North East, came across Elite Singles and thought it looked like a better bet for meeting someone more serious about finding a long-term partner.Searchmate has now offered Aileen a full refund of £1,295.Last year, 7.1 million single Britons looked for a partner online, 800,000 more than in 2011, when, according to uk, there were 6.3 million.
Because of this it had suspended her account, even though she had not asked for this to happen.
Searchmate offered to upgrade Aileen to its “Platinum” membership, a service via which customers are assigned their very own matchmaker who will proactively look for potential matches outside Searchmate’s client base.
When Telegraph Money spoke to one of Searchmate’s agents, we were told matchmakers would go to “great lengths” to find matches for singles, for example putting up posters in local sailing clubs (if the client listed sailing as a hobby), or even posting advertisements in newspapers. She said she sent several emails to Searchmate’s agents since November but did not hear back.
It claims to offer a “safer and more credible alternative” to dating websites.
So in May last year Aileen stumped up £1,295 for membership.
