Having a one star rating is being very generous. I have been scammed 3 time on this site - all lead-up to requesting money. I have had numerous unauthorized log ins to my account. Twice I have had my profile changed by someone else. You have to subscribe to Ourtime. This dating site is no better than pof. Obviously, they don't screen their clients.
I was also sent messages from scammers. To top it off, my account was hacked. I called customer service only to be told since I used their dating site, I can't receive a partial refund. She reinstated my original profile and pictures. Currently the pictures are of me, but the profile has changed back to what the hacker wrote. Please don't waste your money on Ourtime. It isn't worth it! As Bonnie has stated on the ConsumerAffairs website, I have also received messages from women, old men with no shirt no teeth, men who look inebriated or high on drugs?
I received the almost same exact message from 2 men, with only a change in which they were born. The one I chose to respond to communicated that we should exchange email to communicate off the site. The next thing I knew he was planning our life together, the same thing Bonnie alluded to in her post.
At one point I discussed speaking with him on the phone to set-up a time to meet in person. I wanted to know he was real. He originally provided his number and I responded likewise. Chris, if that his real name? After an email of a really bad day, I decided to call the number he provided. His voice sounded very young for a 71 year old. He then proceeded to tell me he was at work even though it was only 6am his time. He originally stated he worked 8: Caught in a lie?
At this point my friends and I went to Google, obits, public records and guess what? No info on Chris or his wife who died in a car crash 6 years ago. And so I sent an email bidding Chris adieu. Obviously, he had no idea what this meant. He then proceeded to email with a plea for money. This site is a scammer paradise.
Hopefully, ConsumerAffairs can address the issues quite a few of us have now notified them of. I first signed up for free, very soon I had about 15 messages which I couldn't read until I paid so I did. These were from webcam models 30 years my junior doing some "catfishing". Later a lot of messages being sent were accidental including 12 I sent without knowing it. All have the phrases "You look like someone I'd like to know" or "You deserve a flirt.
Well you get the idea, you click the wrong place and you've sent a message or flirt without your knowledge.
There are good people on OurTime, but the site itself is a joke and ripoff in my opinion. One was about lbs heavier than his pic the next was planning my life before I met him in person. I can only describe this site as looking at a prison line up!!! I have been on our time for more than a year. But that might be my achilles heel. My problem has been more with the quality of men I have met and dated men with moderate to severe mental health issues.
I even had to beg OurTime to take steps to consider removing one after proof. Some of these men could actually be a danger. What I'm looking for is to spread the word about some of these very challenged men so women don't waste their time and possibly heart on some of these guys.
My most recent nut no showed twice and then called me a stalker. We didn't speak until 3 weeks later when all of a sudden he had to meet me.
He began his initial introduction on OurTime with he just wanted to meet a woman his age that still wanted to be intimate. Yet twice he wanted to break off talking because he'd never please me due to ED.
Next day break up. Yep you guessed it I invested a lot of time and patience into this man. I think there should be a place to let someone else know his name at least first and where he lives.
The guy is a fearful nut. It's just been guy after guy like this. And those who say the same picture floats through continuously are correct. I joined "OurTime" for free, Once I paid for a subscription, nothing worked. Every time I attempted to sign in, it stated something was wrong. I could not sign on. I called customer service immediately, could not get a refund.
But I did cancel any further charges, I hope. I came onto the site with honesty and openness rarely afforded to anyone. I had all good intentions. Except I was the only one with good intentions. And, of course, both said they would pay me back.
And one of my personal favorites was the one that had the photo of himself, shirtless, with a bit in his mouth admitting that he was "submissive". Further, very few of the "Today's Matches", followed my profile. I have requested a refund. Let's see how that goes. I had been communicating with an individual who held himself out as military close to retirement. There were many red flags in the communications. I finally did some digging and could not confirm the details he was stating and discredited the ones that he did.
Fortunately, I have family in the military and they were able to help me with this. The site needs to have a better vetting policy in order to have legitimate individuals interested in meeting.
This was my only time and will be my last. I carefully and specifically put what I am and am not looking for. I have no interest in atheists; I get matched with atheists. I get matched with smokers. The culmination of emotional and sensory overload. I did meet a few people, but it's just not worth wasting money on this. The majority are not in my town, and some are even out of State. Also some same sex people have propositioned me. It's all a flip of the coin whether you find someone.
At this time the site does not work. It keeps flipping to a site in the U. I don't like the fact that OurTime will tell someone you found them interesting, when you did not. I have received quite a few messages from guys thanking me for showing an interest in them, or that I said I liked their photo! Then I see my photo and a note in a bubble saying "I am interested in you", "Let's chat" or something to that effect.
So, it seems if you just look at a photo or maybe read a bit of the profile out of curiosity, it will tell the person you are interested in him or her. I feel this is deceiving to the man or woman, as to possibly get their hopes up, when there is no interest at all. I did not see this in the rules, so I'll just have to try to be as careful as possible and wait it out until my account expires. Warning to people looking for relationships on line. Avoid this website at all costs.
You will regret it if you don't. It doesn't even deserve a 1 star rating and you will pay through the nose to cancel your subscription. I met a couple of truthful men online but the rest are pathetic. I just joined yesterday. I'm hoping I'll be able to stop a renewal next month. I also can't believe how silly I was to not check the reviews first.
I have always done that for everything! I try to delete contacts and it's not working. I take full responsibility for my blunder and will pay for the month.
Signed up for a month and in that time spoke to 1 lady, didn't go anywhere The response rate is truly appalling as it was with there other site dating direct in the end they gave me the option for ladies to contact me free resulting in a few conversations on dating direct. I cannot recommend this site, if you're a decent bloke trying to find a lady to date there are far better sites that are cheaper and yield a result, this one is crap. Yea, you meet who you think are nice girls but 4 of them asked me for money because they got into Ghastly situations and they all seem to be self employed, parents dead, no family and trapped in a foreign country.
They sold my email and I'm still getting spam emails about 'she flirted with you' and when I look at the links, it's not from OurTime. After this experience I'll probably never go to a dating site again.
Someone needs to shut this site down. I signed up on OurTime. There is no verification process and most profiles are fake. Seniors are being targeted on this site. Save your money and go out and join a few clubs, dancing, kayaking, playing pool but you will waste your money and time on this site.
