Often when I pay for any subscription, I immediately cancel it so that I won't get rebilled. Virtually every website lets you do that and lets you enjoy the benefits of the subscription for the amount of time that you have paid for. But not Zoosk. If you cancel then you lose all benefits. I didn't realize that and I logged in and submitted the billing information again and was charged twice for the same period within 2 days. After dealing with Zoosk customer service, they agreed to give me a prorated refund, but not the full amount. That is utterly sleazy.
This may be a real website but maybe not. It's filled with girls, impossibly beautiful girls, all clamoring to marry a western guy. Sound real? Not to me, but it's a fun fantasy... Still getting used to the website but some of these women appear to be real, at least they're not computers talking to you like another website. I don't know if the photos match the actual people behind it yet or not. The website itself is really bad though, freezes my phone all the time.

Just got this email, haha:
"Good afternoon, {{male name}}!
I want to know you, I'm interested in the fact that you live. What are you looking for on this site? Do you believe in fate or love at first sight? Your heart is free, Jonny !?))
On this site with the search for the person who will be with me all my life! Are you ready for such a relationship?)) I really hope that yes {{male name}}!
Faithful, caring, loving husband. Love is a great happiness for a woman!).
In relations, as I believe, the main thing is to trust and understand your soul mate, make concessions and love, I will do everything that you would be happy, {{male name}}!
I dream to fly to Paris, go for a week of high fashion, reach a high career. But most of all I want my husband to feel his judgment every day. I will do my best to have love and understanding in our family!
I can not wait for your reply, {{male name}}!))
Sincerely, Katia."

Contrary to what happened to Jason - I signed up and got even MORE emails. One is really attractive and great so far, so we shall see what happens. The website isn't the best - slow to load, logs you out after short time period, big banners running across the top.

Hi Jonny,
Thanks for the feed back. We do agree with you and are currently working on a site upgrade to correct site speed issues. It is currently a key priority for all members.

For every profile you see, there is a real girl... somewhere. But that's about the only truth that's there. There are females (and males) who operate behind these profiles and respond to you. The truth is, 99% of American men are not going to travel to Ukraine or Russia to meet one of these girls. And furthermore, to leave either of those countries an advanced visa must be obtained and they're not always granted, so there's very little chance that this is actually going to result in a genuine marriage. It's a fantasy; if you're okay spending money for something like that, it's okay, but understand what it really is.
I have zero information in my profile other than my name and age, and no picture. Yet I get emails that say how they noticed me or i like your profile a lot. What's that tell you?
I have not encountered fake profiles like some appear to have, but the concept is utterly horrible. You get a picture of a girl whom you immediately don't like but you're stuck with her for the next 24 hours, and that's it. One picture you can look at. There are others but you gotta pay for them. It should be called Coffee Meets Beagles.
This website is deceptive. It offers private photos of some of the girls, and says, "To see private photos, simply make contact with a member." (see pic). One girl emailed me and I paid the fee to reply (of course) and responded to her but yet I still could not see the private photos. To answer Alex's question below, no, I'm not giving you any further information (especially because it looks like you just gave your own website a 5 star review).

I tried a few times to get customer service to address this but was denied. This was Ivan's response: "At your request, we have reviewed our records in detail and confirmed that the service was offered to you as intended. As a result, we are unable to offer to you a refund for a service that was properly rendered to you."
Pretty lame and deceptive in my opinion.

Tip for consumers: Don't.

Hi Jonny! Can you share you Member ID, Please? We will check your problem with customer care team.
Best regards,
Can't do anything unless you pay.
That's pretty much all I have to say about this website but since I have to have 100 characters, I'll add this story
...the subscription aspect is somewhat annoying. You have to auto renew and cancellation seems a bit difficult with a phone (I've tried 3 times). I wonder why? On the computer it was easier so I bumped to 4 stars. I am always suspect of websites like that.

Dear Jonny,

I'm sorry to learn that you've experienced difficulties in canceling the auto-renewal for your subscription, on your mobile.

I'd like to follow-up on this personally. Please send me an email via your registered email address at "" and we 'll look into this.

Kind regards,
Catarina, MyHeritage Team
The thing that annoys me about the service is that if you email customer service of a company that uses this website, you get an auto reply. You open it thinking it's something important to say but it simply says "we received your email and will respond...." blah blah.
I find that completely unnecessary and a waste of time and sometimes in a small way, disappointing.
It doesn't really produce results that you want, it gives you anything. I look for postal jobs and it said over 100,000 available but all I got were Lyft listings. If you do a search for "Imaginary jobs", it comes up with 100,000 "Imaginary jobs." lol.
Hmmm, when I try to review I get this message: "Reviews for this website have been temporarily disabled." Hmmm.

Seems fake. Anyone else? If you get instant messages right after you sign up, the site is probably a fraud. Also, and this is important. If you want to cancel your membership you have to figure out where it is, which isn't exactly easy, and then you actually have to call a person. And that person tries to sell you something else, and has an accent and talks a lot. I was able to cancel but of course the whole process was difficult.
Good to check here before you pay money for some of these websites. Easy to use to and the girls here are the best around. One problem is that it wasn't clear that when I wrote a review it erased the old one :( Should be more clearly explained. Another problem is that it won't let me write a review for this website:
For some reason that is not allowed. Makes me wonder how legit site jabber is, is it connected to this website?
