A Manhattan man who hired a “luxury” dating service to help him find love instead found a money pit, a lawsuit claims.
The Washington, DC-based matchmaker Taylor Francois-Bodine says she helps the lovelorn “accelerate” their hunt for romance with her “luxury experience” and claims her clientele includes “senators, congress people, ambassadors, well-known sports figures, industry leaders, CEOs and Fortune 500 executives.”
When businessman Paul Gleit signed up with the matchmaker in May, he agreed to pay $35,000 in installments for two years worth of introductions.
By the time he’d finished in October, he’d had just six dates — yet paid $426,000, or about $71,000 per date, the Manhattan federal court lawsuit says. Gleit is seeking a full refund. Francois-Bodine didn’t return a message.
