This website is a great example of why the average person who goes through this website, (if they are actually real), and are looking to find a Christian partner, as I was very disappointed with the women who were actually on the site claiming to be Christian. They were only looking for a sex partner, in both of the cases where I answered their message. The problem I have with most Christians who are on sites like this today, it has become in style to claim to be Christian to be accepted as a decent person, even if you don't live a decent lifestyle. Because of this, I refer to myself as a Child of God now. This website has no way to keep scam artists off it and all the profiles who contacted me other than these two were fake, once I did upgrade. Once the company had my money it never gave me another contact that was real other than these two.
Am I the only one who thus happened to, but before I joined I was getting lots of smiles and messages which I couldn't read. And so I said to myself, I'm gonna join. Lo and behold when I joined and paid there were no messages and no smiles. Also, not many now as it is. I have received a couple guys messaging me and one smile. All from way far away.I have seen a couple profiles of same people, but they could be like me, just tried a couple different sites. I had high hopes, my sister found her bf on here and is very happy. A good Christian couple. Also, I keep getting people viewing me from other parts of the country. Very disappointed. If anyone else noticed not receiving messages or smiles, not even showing up from the ones they said you had, please let me know.
It deserves a zero. Locked out of my account as someone supposedly changed my email. Call the phone and get a recording. Respond to the email and they send a second one demanding specific information to ensure I am the true account holder. Once I send the info, I call the bank to suspend the card. Suddenly, the second email disappears.....the one talking about suspicious activity and needing verifcation....yeah that one. I do get another email stating my account has been reviewed and "credit card" does not match my method of payment, to please verify. Really, who said "credit card"? And yes, they put it in quotations. Waiting to hear from a real person as I also filled out the contact form. Reporting them to the BBB. SCAM AND FRAUD!!!!!!
This is THE worst dating site I have ever joined. It has NOTHING to with Christianity and may have well be called "The Devil Takes Over..Mingle" Tech support is non existent, members only get a certain "ration" of emails per day. Oh, but "smiles" are free, but those are used by non paying members to lure them into joining when they get a response and find out that CANT respond unless they pay. I made the mistake of paying and i regret it. Nobody can communicate with rationed emails and smiles from people that don't pay. I normally would get at least 20 responses per day, but on this BS site I maybe get one per day,. Oh but tons of smiles from members I can't even talk to because of the "join for free" lure. They need to say "join for free and then be able to do absolutely NOTHING until you pay for our BS awful site.
This site is plagued with fraud!! You may as well go on a site that is free such as POF. I have tried to contact them by phone and no one from CS has responded. The site is down and I tried sending them email and it wont send the email. I called their number 310-893-0550 and 866-660-7924 on 11/10/2016 and their voice recording says in honor of election day they have taken the day off!! This is 2 days after election day...lol I would give them a ZERO rating if they had one!!
The quality of the website has gone down drastically that if I had to subscribe even for a discount, I would not! The layout is very poor and not easily understood to what the numbers beside the topic means that it is very stupid to why they would downgrade and from the exceptional detail service the website offered before.
The pictures that are OWNED by YOU and of YOU are no longer able to be downloaded and Sparks now claims to own the pictures and there is no way of putting them on your desktop! It is HORRIBLE and on the old website I was able to download the pictures! There is so many issues, I can't even name them all!
Don't waste your money, find a way to meet people through a different service
Whenever a business decides to put itself before its customers, I feel an urge to share my story with others (in a hopefully calm, rational, and unbiased way). ChristianMingle recently gave me this urge. I actively used ChristianMingle from May 2015 to March 2016, which is when I met my current girlfriend (I met her on another website, not ChristianMingle). I had a good experience using it, but then I was charged for an auto-renewal of $113.94 in May 2016. I emailed them telling them my situation and that I had forgotten that I would be charged for an auto-renewal for an additional 6 months when my time was up. I have a lot of memberships - some auto-renew and some don't, so it's tough to keep track of. The overwhelming majority of businesses understand this and are understanding when I ask if I can get a refund from an auto-renew (I've probably had this happen about 5 other times - all the businesses were totally cool giving me a refund).
I emailed them asking if I could get a refund since I hadn't used their website since March (when I entered my current relationship) and had no intention of using it for the time being. I thought this was a reasonable request, but they didn't think so. They told me several times that it's in their "Terms" that I accepted and I should've been more on top of it and canceled my service before the auto-renewal hit. I told them that's fine, but I promised I would never use their service again if they wouldn't make this exception. They told me to call them so they could assist me with my recent charge.
After 4 call attempts on 3 different days (they closed over 2 hours early one day, closed for lunch another, long hold time), they finally pick up. They look into my situation and tell me that they aren't going to give me a refund, because I basically should've known better and should've canceled my subscription before the auto-renew charge occurred (thank you for making me feel like a 14-year old getting a lecture from an adult again). Essentially it was all my fault. I find it funny that they told me to call them so they could "assist me with my recent charge" by telling me exactly what they told me over email. I told them I would never use their service again if this was the stance they were going to take and they seemed fine with it (they must have all the money and business they could possibly want).
Like I said earlier, this is one of those rare occasions where the business puts itself before its customers and I thought I should share my story so others don't need to experience the same thing. They knew my situation, they knew I hadn't used their service since March, and still decided to charge me thru November while giving me a lecture about how I'm not a responsible person, because it was in their "Terms" agreement.
A calm, rational, and unbiased customer
I received emails from con artist preying on Christian People. I tried to cancel for my own safety and they renewed me anyway. I tried to dispute it with my credit card company and was still not able to get my $59.97 charge credited back. I had to pay for a subscription that ended, no service nor access to the site. They are the true con artists. This is a get rich marketing scheme not a real dating site. Buyers beware and save your money for something more legit.
