  • Well, this material has only blown my mind up! So, instances and intriguing facts that I’m
    astonished and pleased with the data you give us.
    The issue is burning off as well, therefore that I indicate I’ll read it as I did with https://scamfighter.net/review/essaypro.com. Last but most certainly not least is I can share this information with friends of mine and get their pleasure from the given material
    . Let info to be!

  • As a practicing writer, I have always adopted an intuitive logic it felt normal to center on the subject -> develop with
    ideas/answers -> put it . However, nothing can save me when I was writing about
    thermodynamics, as an example, which, as you can imagine, isn’t my
    principal field of expertise. Anyway, I took some Amazing tips in the writing style,
    thanks for this:slightly_smiling_face:

  • This website is a scam. I have previously posted about the issue I had with this company and I was under the impression it had been solved, but apparently not. I signed up for a short term membership back in July 2016. I had previously paid for similar accounts at regular dating sites and they usually have a ‘rolling membership’ scheme, which means you have to opt out so that the membership doesn’t automatically renew. I make sure to do this as soon as I pay so that the site doesn’t continue charging me, and as a result I have never had any problems in the past.

    I did exactly the same with Spectrum Singles. I signed up for the discounted membership so I could try out their site and had the confirmation email come through. I then went back in and cancelled the subscription (there is a button to do this on the website) so it wouldn’t automatically keep renewing. My membership allowed me to access extra parts of the website, such as posting on forums, sending messages to other members, etc. My membership ended in September, although my access to the above areas of the website actually ended early by a few days. I did email them about this, but received no response.

    It is now March 2017 and Spectrum Singles are STILL trying to take payments from my bank account! When I noticed they had taken extra payments in autumn 2016, I sent several emails notifying them that my membership had been cancelled and my access stopped and I was therefore unsure why they were still taking money from me. I assumed it was a simple error on their part, as they were a small and new website. Mistakes happen when you are just starting out as a company, and I try to give people the benefit of doubt.

    However I have yet to receive a reply to any of these emails months later. I have spoken to my bank and they have put a stop on these payments (which basically means they ‘leave’ the account each month, but then my bank refunds the money a day or so later). My bank has also been unable to get anywhere with them and cannot stop the payments entirely. So despite my membership ending in autumn 2016, Spectrum Singles are still trying to take money from my account every month for a service I do not get.

    I have since spoken with several other members who have had exactly the same thing happen to them (and are still trying to get their banks to cancel the payments entirely). Spectrum Singles appear to just ignore any complaints. I would not recommend this service.
