Not Christian at all

Reviewed By Camille on November 18, 2014

God perfect match? Really? Is that the case everything will be perfect. The owners of Christian Mingle are Sparks Network and they not Christians at all. All they care is about money and take advantage of people loneliness. The website is full of scammers and fakes profile created by them. Commercials are pure industrial psychology. A lot of sex predators because they don't make a background check. Chat rooms are full of people complaining about they can't find a date because just like any other websites men are there just for sex. Is more like a popularity competition in the 40's chat room and this specific common denominator person name Jesuschick167 controlling the chat room and team up with others people to kick people out of Christian Mingle. The worst part is that Christian Mingle don't check to see if the allegations are true because they don't monitor the chat rooms at all. People copy stuff and when they paste it they change it into their own convenience and that's defamation. You have to be afraid of writing something and the minions changing things. Lot of people with mental issues.

They Have Many Fake Profiles/Scams

Reviewed By Debi on July 21, 2014

I have been a member for some time, although sometimes being away for weeks.

What I have noticed is that they have too many fake profiles. I cannot understand why Christian Mingle does not do a better job. After all this year they had a member taken for $300,000 from a scam. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/01/17/internet-dating-scam_n_4619758.html

It is easy for them to catch many of the scam fake profiles. For example, if the person is using an IP address from Nigeria or other countries where the scam artists tend to congregate, they should do more research before posting their profile.

They do not do any IP research before posting.

As for me I have been contacted by countless scam artists on this website. I think they target people with more education as I have a Ph.D. level education. Of course most of them are widowers, with flowery language, etc.

I have turned in countless profiles as possible fakes. When I call in to report them, customer agent confirms that the profile I question sounds like a scam. (I won't publish a list of things that are red flags as I will not help the fraudsters avoid detection.)

Why do they only seem to do their investigations when a customer flags a fake? This is how their customers get robbed not just of their monies, but their time and for some, their heart.

I have gone to another website, www.pof.com. There you can contact people for free and they don't seem to have the level of fraudsters that Christian Mingle has. I have already met two legitimate people from there.

I think that anyone that uses this website that markets itself to Christians (or any website with Christian focused marketing) that these sites, from the onset, are more vulnerable because Christians are generally trusting (maybe too trusting).

So don't waste your money on ChristianMingle.com. You can use secular websites (Match.com or pof.com) and just indicate that you are looking for a Christian.

In writing this, for the record I have not lost money to the scammers. Instead of I have been "defrauded" of too much time weeding through the fakes.

Also you might want to put in your profile you never loan money to anyone.. If a male has to borrow money from you, then they are not dating or marriage material.

Hope this helps someone.

I agree with you as I have also met someone who I found was full of red flags. The initial letters he sent to my personal email were written with much intelligence. These wee long, loving, romantic letters which I responded to in a similar way. In one of my long letters, I mentioned that I was not ready to retire and am not financially stable to do so, when voila, his response was written later and was much shorter and not as intelligible as the former once.

We got to chat, and to talk on the phone. His voice was so muffled, I could not discern a word he says. And it sounded like a whole different person from my first initial love letters.

All the red flags prompted me to chech out "dating scams" and behold, those long letters he wrote were verbatim from a scam source.

Further research prompted me to report the matter to IC3, and had to report it to CM.

I did not lose money, but my emotion was tagged in so many different ways. I thought I met my ideal man. If there is anything I learned from this experience that I'd like to share is this: always trust your instincts. If it feels too good to be true, then let your mind analyze the details. Conflict within is a good indication that something is not right.

Good

Reviewed By Karen Lienhop Patterson on May 31, 2014

Christian Mingle is just as good as any of the other sites out there. They cannot help the fact that half the people on the site are just looking for no strings sex, scammers or cons. So are half the people on any other site. The ultimate responsibility is on the PERSON THAT SIGNS UP!! Glean through the idiots to find the one solid gold person you can date. You're going to find the idiots on ANY SITE. At least Christian Mingle attempts to keep it clean and above board.

Don't waste your time or your money

Reviewed By Anonymous on October 30, 2013, Manitoba, Canada

Most of the emails you'll get won't be from people in your local area; they'll be from people hundreds and thousands of miles away from you, many asking you in their first email to you to contact them at their own personal email address on yahoo, hotmail or gmail.

Secondly, many people locally are either still married, are looking for no strings attached sex. You'd think that you'd find higher quality people on Christian Mingle, and many genuine Christians on Christian Mingle, as it's a Christian dating website, but that's not the case.

And, when you do contact Christian Mingle to tell them about scam artists on their website, and express your desire to discontinue your membership with them, they tell you that they're not responsible, and suggest to you that you need to do your own background searches on every person you meet online to keep yourself safe. Then they tell you to go read their success story pages.

Don't let the "Christian" part of Christian Mingle fool you. It's no different than Plenty of Fish. The only reason Christians are signing up on Christian Mingle is because of their PR. They put a ton of ads on TV and place them in several Christian publications to persuade you to sign up. Don't fall for it. Save your money.

When God wants you to meet someone at the right time, it'll happen. Offline. God is bigger than any dating website!

when I used Christian Mingle, I had already tried Match.com, and EHarmony. and low and behold, every time that had a "match" for me, it was someone I had already been "matched" with from another on-line dating site, same picture, same profile and it even said which site they were actually from. this led me to believe that: 1) Christian Mingle had no DATA BASE of their own; and 2) as such, they were actually the worst scammers of the bunch!! OF COURSE- all of them try desperately to cheat you out of your money by refusing to let you cancel your accounts, and the only way I was able to do so was by disputing the charges with my credit card company. unfortunately, most people do not realize that this option even exists, so end up getting screwed royally by these frauds, and cheats. of course, once the credit card company tells them that there will be no payments, and they will not make any of the prior payments either, how quickly the companies stop providing their "services" and stop even trying to bill you! this is but one of the many benefits that credit cards offer you that cash, nor paypal can touch.

Gods Match For You
November 29, 2013

Did you really think that this dating site was legit? Did you believe that the owners of the site really talk to god and he talks back to them? People are so gullible when it comes to god. What were you people thinkin' anyway?
