Woman Sues Dating Agency After They Fail to Find Her a Rich Husband
I do think that some dating sites (or agencies) are guilty of what this woman claims – she said before she paid up to join, the dating agency showed her photos of eligible men that she was interested in, but once she paid them money, they didn’t match her up with those men.
Back when a friend talked me into joining dating sites, I joined one and paid for a few months. During that time, I was sent about one match per month. The minute my membership expired, the site stopped sending me matches.
This went on for a few years until I just deleted my profile on there. I think they had plenty of matches for me but didn’t want to set me up with them until and unless I paid up membership fees again.
A woman is suing an ‘exclusive’ dating agency for damages after she failed to find a rich husband to have a child with.
Tereza Burki, 46, went to Seventy Thirty Ltd in a hunt for ‘possibly the man of my dreams, the father of my child’, she told The High Court.
But the divorced mum-of-three claims she was let down by the agency, which she says enticed her with extravagant marketing claims about how many ‘wealthy, eligible, available men’ it had on its books.
The management consultant is now suing the agency for return of the £12,600 membership fee she paid and additional damages for ‘distress, upset, disappointment and frustration.
The Knightsbridge-based agency – which claims on its website to be the ‘ultimate network of influential and exceptional single people’ – is is counter-suing for £75,000, claiming libel over scathing reviews she published online.
They said that out of 9,000 clients they had on their books, 70 of them fit Miss Burki’s criteria. Each of these had a ‘high net worth’ and she was offered six matches, all who were in the same age bracket and were open to having children.
