Global personals dating agency

The Association was originally formed in 2002 as the Introduction Services Federation, but has been renamed and re-branded in response to the strong criticism of the online dating sector of the industry in the press and in the media and, in direct response to the Information Commissions concerns and criticisms, highlighted in letters to leading online dating companies,, e Harmony, Cupid Plc, Global Personals and the A. On behalf of member companies Complaints within our membership are actually relatively rare, which is an indication that the association works well.

On signing up, I discovered that it was impossible to evaluate the service, as access to member profiles and messaging was denied.

After numerous prompts to 'upgrade', I innocently did so, going for their 'cheapest' option of R86/month for 6 mnths.

To my surprise, they deducted the full amount for the 6 months in one go.

After 24 hours of experimenting with the site, I realised my mistake.

Poor profile matching with other members, endless spamming by system-generated messages, hordes of 'winking' alerts, and a host of unsuitable potential suitors.

It was impossible to determine this without signing up to the full membership, so I feel tricked.After cancelling a subscription I was stunned to have £29.95 taken from my Paypal account for membership free.It seems that with this company when you telephone in your cancellation request it only lasts until just before the next payment is due to be taken.Dreadful customer service, patronising, and disrespectful. Despite emailing them several times over TWO months they will not cancel unless I phone. They have said they will renew my subscription automatically unless I phone 72 hours before the subscription is due DESPITE me emailing to cancel this.I have now had to ask my bank to not honour the payment as this company, run by Global Personals, is highly unethical and just wants to take your money.As a leader in the sphere of online dating and a major driver in the growth of social discovery networks, Global Personals enables people to make friends online and meet them offline.
