The service, which started out nearly thirty years ago as one of those video dating services, has moved into the online world in a big way, and apparently thought that let it off the hook of the NY State "Dating Services Law." A judge thought otherwise and is forcing the company to refund the fees of two women, which could open up many, many more lawsuits.
The company plans to appeal, but the really odd part of the story is just how much the service cost.
Apparently, one woman paid $1,000 for a six month membership and met no one, while the other woman paid $3,790 for the (no, seriously) "Marriage Program." Ah, no wonder the expectations were set a bit high.
State law apparently says dating services can't charge more than $25/month.
Personally, I do not think there are anything wrong with that.
So what's the significance of the title -- "Great Expectations"?
Membership Due to the extra services that offer membership is quite expensive.
