Her real name is Carrie, not Shoshanna and she is FRAUD!! – She scammed me for $5,000. She PROMISED 10 dates when I signed up in Oct. 2010. All lies. I got 1 introduction. Her website no longer exists. She does NOT accept calls or return them, and e-mails cannot be delivered. I filed a complaint with the NYC DA office. Please call them as well if u have been scammed. They are very happy to help. I have done all the legwork all you need to do is call mention her name...they will ask u a couple of questions and that is it!! It's that simple. She should not be able to get away with stealing from sooooo many innocent victims. DA phone # is 212-335-8900. Please feel free to email me at newman.roberta23@gmailcom. Thank you!!
Hilarious – It's funny because I was this close to considering her services a while back until... I got on the phone with them. I felt like I was buy some camcorder from those boiler room shops and was on a sales call to purchase accessories. As if it weren't enough that they charge upward of $3000, there's date coaching and so on so forth. I found it hilarious that one of the reviewer found her on okcupid.
The site is now defunct.
If you have a brain, this isn't the matchmaker for you – I signed up to meet with a rep as I wanted to know what I was going to get for my money. Boy am I a glad I did that instead of just signing up blindly. We decided to meet at my office after work. The first thing the rep did upon meeting me was take the edge of my cardigan sweater and open it. She informed me it was because she had the same sweater at home, but I am not stupid. She wanted to see what kind of figure I had. That's fine as appearance is important, but don't lie to me about it. The interview went downhill from there. She continuously spoke down to me for about a half hour (she actually drew me some pictures), as if she was trying to make me feel desperate. She told me (I am not making this up) that the reason the world is the way it is now, is because women are buying their own homes, travelling on their own and opening their own business instead of spending the time and money to get a man. I was shocked to say the least - why would I spend money on a matchmaking service that had values like that?? When I told her that it was a lot of money to spend without any guarantees, she asked me what I would rather spend that kind of money on. I told her that I had always wanted to go on an African safari. Her exact words that I have never forgotten: "you mean to tell me that you would rather go take a picture of a f-----g elephant and have no one to rest your head next to on the pillow at night?" Needless to say, at that point I said the meeting was over and walked her to the door. She said she had never been kicked out of an office before, which really made me question the desperation of her clientele. Not too long after that, I actually met Shoshanna (not even her real name by the way) at a jewish brunch. She proceeded to get incredibly drunk in public, hit on EVERY man she saw that didn't have a woman next to him, ask if they were jewish, blow off the ones that weren't, and try to sign the ones that were. I was pretty appaled, and after witnessing that, am really glad I didn't give them my money.
Upscale Address: Bait n Switch Girls: AVOID! – Small, boiler room type offices with a desk and computer and a credit card processing machine.
Very young, unsophisticated, rude women, including the owner who manage this business. They do not deliver what they promise, there were no dates, and no ability to complain to Shoshanna.
They were very nice and girlfriendy at the intiial meeting, telling me they had so many great men to set me up with. I didnt hear a word from anyone for 1 month after paying them.
The couple of men who finally contacted me had zero resemblance to anything I requested ( important criteria such as level of Jewish observancy) !
Fruitless to comlain. They have the capital to advertise.
Advise:SIgn up for Jdate.. Its cheaper and more successful.
complete waste of money – Agree with all reviews. The owner is mean and not friendly if you need something after you pay, the personel is not professional. the matches have nothing to do with your preferences. The people they matched me with was a waste of our time and money. They have very small database of people. Is not worth a penny. This agency is a 100%scam. I know some people are suing them.I didn't even get all 6 dates, which proves that they don't have enough people. There are much better agencys in Manhattan, don't go to this one!
WASTE OF MONEY – Service is just as bad or worse than other reviewers say. The people there are nasty, Shoshana does not spend time with clients, and matches are NOT even slightly compatible.
