GE aka Great Expectations here in Charlotte, NC has recently changed their name to Dating in Charlotte. Ripoff Report has an exclusive license to this report.
Some reports have also noted that, once a person gets past the initial sign-up page, he or she can choose "happily married" or "unhappily married" as a status before finalizing a profile and meeting new potential dates.Barrett Riddleberger said in a text message Monday that the marital status issue was a mistake and was being fixed by a programmer.Just what role he and his wife have in the site is unclear.The Riddlebergers have been active in Guilford County Republican politics over the years.Jodi Riddleberger co-founded C4GC, Conservatives for Guilford County, and she and her husband have both donated money to the group.It was merely a credit check and this was for THEIR benefit. After realizing that I was basically stuck with this "membership" I have meet a few men.One of the members that I meet was considered "inactive" or on a "freeze".I sent an inquiry to the dating service and waited for them to call me back. That should have been my first warning that something was off! Had I know this and had searched the internet for information about them, I would have found complaints that go on for miles....literally. They do not allow you to look through their data base until you have completed the process of joining which includes completing a video shoot and photos with their photographer, an addition fee which is never mentioned.They would not give me any information over the phone because they are so exclusive. Great-Expectations is all over the US and has over 200 complaints on this website alone. By this time it is too late to cancel your membership, which I might add is several thousand dollars.They told be that they do a background check on all of their prospective clients and that it is for our protection.I later found, that a background check was not done.
