Scam

TO ALL OF YOU LOOKING TO FIND LOVE OUT THERE,

PLEASE do you and your wallet a BIG favor and DO NOT use Events and Adventures to find it! This company preys on vulnerable, unsuspecting, lonely individuals to make a quick buck- which happens to be thousands of dollars! Once you sign the Events and Adventures contract and step out the door, consider yourself screwed! Please do your research on this company, I wish I would have. Go to the Better Business Bureau and see that, "Nationally, Events and Adventures offices have been the focus of more than 130 complaints in the past 36 months, more than 60 of those in the past year. Those complaints allege a variety of problems, including misleading promises about membership demographics, misleading information about the club activities, refusal to honor oral cancellation promises and employee rudeness." Don't take my opinion for it. Look at the facts. Events and Adventures will be brought to justice soon enough for its bad business practices, but I would hate to see any more of us lose our money. That's why I am writing this review. I hope that it helps at least one person from making a costly mistake.

Scam

I can't believe I was fooled into buying a membership at this place. It sounded cool on the radio and I had some extra money at the time, so unfortunetley I signed up. They gave me a deal, down payment on my credit card of $695.

Went to one event, ONE person there my age, out of about 40 (I'm 27 and consider someone "my age" up to ten years older than me, if that can help explain the crowd)
Next event I had to slip out of the back door because some older man kept asking me to come over sometime. Ew. I think I lasted at that events a total of 5 minutes.

I put it on the back burner for a while because I fell ill and couldn't participate. When I went to look at the signed papers I realized that this wouldn't be easy. They kept putting me off on the phone, trying to scare me with sending my bills to claims to get the money eventually. Psh., I got a doctors letter and called again. I can tell you I called about 15 times before I could speak to someone that could talk to me about canceling. They were always" out to lunch" or had "just stepped out" I let them know it was bullshit every time.

One day they were giving me the runaround again, so I said. What time are you open till? "7 o clock."

Guess who calls 10 minutes later? Icing to the cake: without me even saying a word about why I was calling, she knew my name and knew that I wanted to cancel.


I said, well don't worry I'm coming down to talk to you. I have a doctors letter that you need to read.

She said.. "Well, I'm packed with appointments. Maybe tomorrow. I said it's ok, I'll wait. I'll be there around 6:30. This was about 4 p.m.

I may have signed up for this discpicable service, but I'm a lot smarter when I'm PISSED OFF.

I hopped in my car and jetted to their Ft. Lauderdale office, which is about 45 minutes from me.

You won't freaking believe this part.

After I had parked, I saw the lights in the office turn off. So I KNEW there was someone in there. I looked into the dark office from outside and not a person to be found. They're such idiots they forgot to lock the door. At this time it's only about 5 o'clock. I walk in. Hello?

There's about 4 people in one room, stuttering, the lady said "We've had some canellations. MY ASS. I give her my doctors letters and shove my arm in her face which was taped up over dried blood from a painful procedure to implant a PICC line, which is a semi-permanent IV. I said, would you go out with this on your arm?! here's my doctors note, HAVE A GOOD DAY. I flicked them off as I left. I said I'll call in the morning to see that I am not charged 250 dollars tomorrow, or else I'm contacting the BBB. She originally said they can't process a cancellation that quickly. It was done the next day to my surprise. I can be a total bitch and I'd be scared of me too.

So all in all, they got about a grand from me. I don't know if I am entitled to any money if this does become a class action lawsuit. But I will 100% pack you and others that got had in saying this is a TOTAL SCAM. SLEAVY people, I have dates of all of my calls, reponses, etc. I have my original papers, etc. I chose to not write mail or fax/send documents, as I knew they would purposley delay all paperwork. I just BARELY caught them in person when they are supposedly in the office till "7'o'clock.

There's actually more to the story, not much but just perposterous actions. Oh yeah, they charged me 25 dollars for a month that had been cancled.

I hope you go down in flames E&A. Trying to still rip me off after telling them I was having life threatening health complications. Go to HELL.

Scam

Oh also, the comments on this site reccomending Events and Adventures are usually fake testimonials done by E&A themselves. Check this out (from http://www.topix.com/forum/city/newton-ma/TE8D5VH3N1NKGL8AI)

This review is also on the citysearch page for Atlanta. It's a long way from FL to GA to MA to get someone to write a good review. Gee, I wonder where her paycheck comes from?

As a member of Events and Adventures for almost two years, I can honestly say that it is the best thing I have done for myself since my divorce ten years ago. Events and Adventures provides a great opportunity to meet both male and female singles and provides a great chance to network. The group allows you to do things you enjoy without having to go by yourself. I have kayaked, flew a helicopter, sang at karaoke, attended baseball games, played laser tag and miniature golf, mingled at Happy Hours, participated in Zumba classes, learned how to shoot archery, attended Broadway musicals, just to name a few. Another reason I recommend E&A is that there is no stress. All you do is show up; It really is the easiest way to meet other singles. Events and Adventures is better than anything else I have tried as a single person. I believe the reason E&A is so successful is because of the quality of people. The women in E&A actually are very friendly. I have attended Meet Up events and not one woman has ever come up to me and introduced themselves. At E&A the women genuinely want to cultivate friendships with both sexes and welcome new members to the club readily. The men in E&A are also very courteous and conduct themselves as gentlemen. In the two years I have been a member, I have never had a man say or act inappropriately to me. This speaks very well for the quality of men in E&A. I hate to admit it, but I have been a member and/or participated in: It’s Just Lunch, Great Expectations, Match, Cupid, Speed Dating events, and Lock and Key parties and have never met the same quality of people that Events and Adventures has. E&A has really been a lifeline for me when I find myself single again after being in a relationship and I can’t say enough about what the group has provided to me. The membership fee definitely was worth every cent I paid and more.


BUSTED! Idiots.
