I got scammed out of $3500 at these dating-marriage sites. Why does PAYPAL support these crooks?As far as I know, 100% of the women were being paid to write me letters and chat. I thought I was popular. I got 1000 letters. Every woman I tried to get serious with was a dead-end.....sometimes they just "became unavailable", and the excuses became so numerous, along with so many other lies I uncovered, that I figured the dating service is in on the whole scam. Here is a blog I found that supports my experience. Please note, English is his second language:
The dating scam is pathetic. But..then so is other online meetings.
I got made a fool out of few times. Never again. Best to meet someone in real life.
