Woman Who Paid $150K for Dating Service Sues After Meeting ‘Married Men And Criminals’
This does sound like a very crummy dating service.
A retired corporate executive claims a high-end matchmaking service set her up with a string of highly unsuitable men, according to a lawsuit.
Darlene Daggett, former president for US commerce for the home shopping channel QVC, says she paid $150,000 for the service but was set up with married or mentally unstable men. Some were even convicted criminals, reports philly.com.
She settled a lawsuit against California-based Kelleher International hours after it was filed in federal court last week.
However, court filings shed light on what Daggett alleged were a series of bad courtships that fell short of what the dating service promised.
…It [the dating service] boasts ‘the largest private database of accomplished singles in the country’.
However, Daggett claims she found from first-hand experience that the selection process was not as vigorous as she thought.
Lawyer M. Kelly Tillery wrote in the lawsuit: ‘Kelleher’s “highly screened” matches for Daggett included men who were married, mentally unstable, physically ill, pathological liars, serial Lotharios, stalkers, convicted felons, and men unwilling or unable to travel and/or the subject of professional sanctions.’
