Speed dating is a scam

The first speed-dating event took place at Peet’s Café in Beverly Hills in late 1998.

Usually advance registration is required for speed dating events.

Clients seem to not read this and still turn up to the event with the transaction not gone through to us, despite our emails to them.

They cancelled my booking after my online purchase, promised to refund me several times on email but never actually refunded me.

The only contact they provide is an email address, and my following emails to them were ignored. I was told they will email me even if there is no match but they didn't contact me.

At the end of the event participants submit to the organizers a list of who they would like to provide their contact information to.

If there is a match, contact information is forwarded to both parties.

They make split-second decisions on matters of the heart, creating a pool of information on one of the more ineffable yet vital questions of our time—how we select our mates.

The concept of rapid-fire dating has gained tremendous popularity, spreading to cities all over the world.

Like all online communities there are people who seek to take advantage of other users through scamming, or not being who they really claim to be and we urge all users to exercise caution.

For instance, some users join the site but aren't looking for dating.

Instead they may use your personal details to send unwanted advertisements or ask for money (which is known as a scam).

To prevent yourself from undesirable contacts we have compiled a list of tips below to help you be on the safe side.
