Vancouver internet dating service Naughty chat no sign up
Nicole Corrado, founder of Vancouver dating site Hitchette, which screens people to make sure they’re honourable, said the findings don't surprise her.
“In any other city you go to, people are very friendly, and very open and they want to connect with you,” she said.
At first she was hopeful, but after a number of disappointing dates, she became frustrated. In a Consumer Reports' survey of nearly 10,000 people, respondents gave online dating sites the lowest satisfaction scores Consumer Reports has seen for any rated service in two decades, even lower than cable TV companies.
"When you get your hopes built up sometimes to meet the right person and then that chemistry is just not there… "Online dating is different from shopping for other kinds of things like a sweater. With dating, the sweater has to like you back," said Margot Gilman, money editor at Consumer Reports.
“Online dating scams, or Catphishing, continues to be a loss leader for Canadians when it comes to scams,” says Evan Kelly, Senior Communications Advisor for BBB serving Mainland BC.
Valentine’s Day is this month and that means online scammers will be doing everything they can to steal money from the lovelorn.
However, the ‘romantic’ relationship is not legit and the scammer is simply trying to get personal information or money from their victim.
