They have made me feel exposed and an old fool. I joined this service because I was playing around on the website and saw that I had received messages and there were numerous interests in my profile. This did not unlock the account so I could explore the website. I tried calling their customer service and was put on hold forever and then told to press one for a callback.
So I requested the callback and started researching the website which I should have done before giving my credit card number and found this Consumer Affairs site. After reading how this is basically a rip off scam, I called my credit card company and asked how I can prevent this company from making additional charges to my card.
What I had to do was cancel my card and have them send me a new one, which is way easier than having to deal with these thieves. Lesson learned, and I'm only out three dollars. I signed up for one month to try Cupid. But a few hours later on the first day, I was online in the middle of messaging someone and was shut down and told I had been blocked!
No reason given and their customer support is horrible. I get auto responses but no help AND I started getting emails from men who said they had met and seen me on dating sites. I had never heard of with UK.

I was promised a refund, but then they changed their mind. Stay clear, not just because of the above, but most of the contacts seemed to be gold diggers You have been warned. I set up two separate accounts to test their site. One page I used a random photo of a horse in the wilderness. The other a picture of Tom Brady.
Both accounts instantly received messages but no profiles views. Which means the messages were sent by bots or people who never even looked at your page.

Falsified profiles aimed at getting you to upgrade subscriptions. Don't be a victim. I set up a profile and paid the subscription.
Although the account was downgraded, they did not return the subscription.

This isn't right to do to someone. I never signed up for anther 30 days on this site. Their billing and debit to my bank account caused me financial hardship as I was not expecting this charge and it caused me to bounce other bills that I had expected. I canceled my membership in less than 24 hours, it still working. Also Zoosk will nickel and dime you to death.
I set up an account with Cupid. I reached out to the admin e-mail as the site instructs you to do so, and a get some generic reply message about, if you would like to cancel your account follow the steps in settings. I replied back that I didn't want to cancel membership and explained about the no PayPal option any longer. I asked to allow me to talk and had to interrupt her several times to seek that. Which confused the hell out of me!

I called back waited on hold forever and when the line was picked up, they hung up on me again!! Sorry had to vent, that sort of service pisses me off! Hope this review helps prevent someone else from having to deal with them!!! Plus they will contact you with staff profiles posing as real dates to get you to sign up for their services. Plus there are plenty of fake profiles, just to name a few. I have not found a "decent" date. Meaning this seems to be a married man hook-up site.
They either are "widowed" or their marriage needs spicing up. It is not the site's fault. I understand that but really screen your matches carefully. I have since given up on dating sites. Stay away from this site!!! The guys are all widowed, live out of state, and look like models but they are really creeps sitting in Nigeria.
They claim to be civil engineers, widowed with a young child, conveniently working overseas saving the world! They give you a song and dance and fall "head over heels" with their victim. My scammer thought he had a live one It's embarrassing as it took me a week of texting the creep to wise up and do a little homework and found the poor guy he was pretending to be.
Thank god he didn't get a CENT out of me!! When you try to cancel your membership you have to call a number and the person on the other line could barely speak English and argued with me about cancelling. It's really a shame that these dating sites are just overfilled with scammers!!! I would rather be lonely and single!! Save yourself the aggravation, time and money and stay away!! When I first signed up and created my profile on Cupid, somehow my gender selection was wrong. After uploading some of my photos I checked my profile and saw it read "male". I went through the steps as prescribed on Cupid to request my gender changed to female.
I looked back at my profile and saw my uploaded photos were gone so I uploaded again and went through the steps to request my gender change on my profile. A solid option among the highest ranking sites in the Matchmaking category, Cupid. Despite being a little flashy, it does deliver with easy-to-access dropdown menus and straightforward functioning. Or, upgrade for a more in-depth experience and the ability to contact other members directly.
The Search function allows you to create searches that can be as general or as specific as you want them to be. Unfortunately, these searches cannot be saved to use at a later date and have to be redone every time you come back to the site. Probably the most annoying function of the Cupid.

Skip to main content A hack on niche online dating service Cupid Media earlier this year has exposed names, e-mail addresses, and—most notably—plaintext passwords for 42 million accounts, according to a published report. Considering how often this is occurring, especially involving such large businesses, is this a systemic problem?
I'd have thought that any business would consider protecting their user's data a top priority in keeping said business from losing consumer confidence and sinking. Surely most of these larger companies have security specialists who know better than to store any user data in plaintext. How are we supposed to identify businesses who are complying with industry best practices to encrypt and protect user data.
