“Complete and utter rip-off”

Written on: 21/05/2015 by Rose248 (1 review written)

I telephoned to cancel my membership 72 hours before my rebilling date as asked.The operator stated that my billing account had been cancelled. Then she offered 2 weeks free of charge,I accepted this but did question why i had to telephone before the end of the 2 weeks to confirm cancellation. Was told this is what has to be done before the end of the 2 weeks . I was 2 days late in my telephone call and Global Personals took a months payment from my bank account that they said they had… Read Full Review

“AVOID”

Written on: 20/05/2015 by mulderat (16 reviews written)

I was joined onto one of this companies websites, by my friend, as a prank. Within hours of finding out I asked for my money back.....now 30 days later still no money despite their terms and conditions stating otherwise. This organisation pretends to offer 'high-end' dating websites, but is just a front for scamming money and it doesn't abide by its own termination terms or by the distance selling regulations. I will be contacting the Police and Trading standards concerning this… Read Full Review

“Be very aware of the terms and conditions”

Written on: 04/05/2015 by Krystal70 (1 review written)

As per other reviews, you'll learn that Global Personals operate a 'white label' dating service - which means that there are many affiliated websites who will share your data. One of the many sites, which in this instance is operated by them, is Justsingles.If signing up from the home page, be very clear of the following: "By clicking 'Submit' you agree to our Terms of Use." Naturally, the text size is as small as possible, and pay strict attention to '6. Term and Termination'. Whilst they… Read Full Review

It doesn't help when they ban female accounts for no reason - men are being ripped off big time!

“I paid premium to upgrade to full membership from...”

Written on: 27/01/2015

I paid premium to upgrade to full membership from basic on one of Global Personal's sites. I then found that I still had to pay more if I wanted to use all the features that are available to full members on most sites. This was disappointing from the start. Secondly, I've been on sites before where as a basic member you are enticed to pay for full membership in order to read emails. As a new basic member your mail box quickly fills with emails from other members! You are lead to believe that… Read Full Review

“Global Personals Ltd run a number of dating websites....”

Written on: 06/01/2015 by Raina46 (1 review written)

Global Personals Ltd run a number of dating websites. In the situation where you wish to cancel your subscription you have to inform them by phone. Upon doing so, the operator confirms yours cancellation and then gives you weeks membership free of charge. However, it is not explained to you that if you do not phone to cancel again - then Global Personals will charge you for the next period. Since you have made contact by phone - there is no record of the conversion. Once the payment is made -… Read Full Review

“DIABOLICAL SERVICE”

Written on: 28/11/2014

Fiftydating is part of the Global Personals group and, as I fit that category, seemingly a good place to start searching for a mate. Sadly, this couldn't be further from reality. You expect very little 'vetting' on this type of site - their business is to make money - but when obvious 'tricksters' submit profiles and you use the relevant form to let the company know, they still don't remove them. After several complaints about this sort of lax behaviour, I stopped receiving email alerts and… Read Full Review

“ALWAYS CHECK FOR GLOBAL PERSONALS AND WHITE LABEL...”

Written on: 08/11/2014 by MacLeodxd483 (1 review written)

ALWAYS CHECK FOR GLOBAL PERSONALS AND WHITE LABEL DATING. set up my profile on one site after an hour and uploading pictures i could not log in "that account does not exist" i've been given the run around by 4-5 members of 'staff' who haven't fixed my account. I used a different site and had the same issue but the customer support staff were a lot better they sorted my issue straight away. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME. easy to spot a Global Personals site... it's really simple to sign up for an… Read Full Review

I was on for a couple of weeks and now my profile no longer exists, after I made some changes. They moderators ' had reason to believe your account is not genuine' - why?!? because I'm an intelligent female??

“Avoid at all costs!!!”

Written on: 05/10/2014 by Mishmash39 (1 review written)

Was totally misled when I joined a website I'd seen advertised, not realising that I would be lumped in with one of many other sites as part of the global personals company. The website was often inaccessible from my ipad which meant I was unable to access messages and profiles of people on the site. Wonder if this is done deliberately to keep you having to maintain subscription, or whether it is just truly rubbish? I think it's unfair to lump so many niche and diverse sites together as you… Read Full Review

“Global Personals - global rubbish”

Written on: 02/10/2014 by KatBates (1 review written)

What a total waste of time. Always check the 'About us' link at the foot of dating site pages because Global personals offer a white label service to people who fancy trying their hand at dating site marketing. I have signed up to over a dozen Global Personals sites as a user over the last 6 months and have the same problem every time. You get locked out of your account and when you contact customer services, they just do not get back to you. Total, utter rubbish. To anyone thinking of… Read Full Review

I had a similar problem. Signed up with one of their sites (got the activation etc) logged back in to load up my profile/pictures etc, went back a few hours later to see if there was any views etc and was greeted by "account is not found" (or similar. Contacted support and they asked me to provide information which I did and over a week later still no reply from them. I was going to pay a subscription when I attempted to log but now am glad I did not as what is the point of paying for a service your not getting.

“Not what it seems - beware”

Written on: 29/08/2014 by Shelbyh153 (1 review written)

Global Personals seem to own multiple dating sites so whichever one you have carefully chosen to join if its one of theirs they just throw everyone on one site together anyway I only discovered this by talking to other members on the True Match site I had joined - they all had joined different sites eg Plenty of Silver Fish, Flirtify to name but two There is no way of knowing if people are actually still members and can respond, the matches are manipulated by the powers that be and there are of… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/08/2014 by Eileenj360 (1 review written)

Read many of the reviews on here and agree totally. I too have had cancellation problems which started back in May. I cancelled and as with others, they offered me the 2 weeks which I said ok to but wouldn't be using it but have no recollection whatsoever of being told that I had to ring back, so stupidly I thought that would be the end to it, only to be found that I had £49.95 taken out of bank account without my permission. I rang to complain and they told me I should've rung back again to… Read Full Review

Phoned and cancled my subscription. I was given a free 14 day extension, to which i told them i did not want it and had no intension of using it. Thought that would of been the end of it. 2 months down the road and i noticed they were still taking the money out of my account. I rang the bank and got them to put a block on their debits. While on one phone to the bank, i was on my mobile to Global Personals so the bank could hear every thing that was going on. After telling Global what they are… Read Full Review

“Global Frustration”

Written on: 15/08/2014 by Naomis459 (1 review written)

There is nothing good about this company and all the reviews I have read confirm that. Two days after joining, I cancelled my membership and under their "14 day cooling off period" I asked for my entitled REFUND.I was informed by customer service that I would receive the refund within 14 days, which passed and still no refund. I found their customer service unhelpful, bordering on rude when I was told that I would have to "Just wait" because they had a back log of membership refunds to… Read Full Review

“Flirtify, refused to cancel subscription”

Written on: 01/08/2014

These people are incredibly rude. I signed up to the flirtify site (which is run by Global Personals) as I'd heard it advertised on Kiss 100 radio. The site didn't suit my needs, so I wanted to cancel.. Cancelling is not easy. You have to phone them during office hours, and then you are told that you have to phone back a 2nd time to confirm your cancellation. In the mean time, they extend your membership by 2 weeks 'for free'. This gives them time to continue charging for any 'bolt ons' you may… Read Full Review

“This lot can be beaten”

Written on: 18/06/2014 by StevenO'Connor (1 review written)

First and foremost cancel any cards or direct debits you think they may hold the details of - this is their only real weapon to keep taking money off you. Refer them to their own customer charter which states you can cancel 'anytime' Tell them you wish to cancel by email outside of working hours - which falls within their indication of 'anytime'. Include links to several reviews of their dubious practices (Not hard that bit). Finally, indicate that they must cancel your membership as per… Read Full Review
