Great expectatons dating
A class action lawsuit against Great Expectations claims the dating service deprived customers of the right to cancel their contracts.
According to the Dating Service Contract Act passed by state legislature, customers are allowed 72 hours to cancel their contracts.
Complaints to company were shunned with the response "you signed a contract" NOT 'how can we assist you better? I am making monthly payments on my Great Expectations account.
I have not used the account much as I have never met anyone from their program in the time I have had an account with them.
Online dating has obviously been quite popular for some time now, but it appears that one company may have overstepped its legal bounds -- though, it's unclear why those legal bounds are there in the first place.
While the fees being paid (and the idea of signing up for a four year membership that promises marriage) seems somewhat staggering, especially considering the competition, it just seems like these women made a bad decision in signing up for this service.Whether or not you agree with the law (and it's not at all clear why such a law is needed), it still seems like these women entered into an arrangement where they knew what they were getting into.In what world can their be a guarantee that you'll meet someone if there simply are no matches and no one wants to meet you back?The lawsuit claims that the 1989 Act entitles every Great Expectations customer to cancel their contracts and seek restitution.Great Expectations' standard membership contract runs three years and costs nearly ,500, plus a monthly service charge.
FORT MILL, SOUTH CAROLINA -- As wonderful as the idea of meeting the love of your life is, Great Expectations does have some great points and it also has some not so great points.
