If you live in Maryland and you’re using a matchmaking service, then you’re going to want to make sure you’re not using the same service that scammed a woman out of $3,000. This Maryland woman is named Tobi Adewole and she’s a resident of Maryland.
Maryland Matchmakers Scam Lots of People
Tobi Adewole, 52, was doing everything she could to find someone to date online. She decided to contact some local matchmakers to help her find love. Obviously, Tobi did this thinking that it would increase her odds of meeting someone to hook up with. So, she did what any other lonely person might do. She decided to sign a contract that Maryland Matchmakers drew up in exchange for helping her find love.
She was looking for someone that was the same religion as her and someone approximately the same age. After signing the contract, she gave Maryland Matchmakers $3,000 for their services. Well, she only connected with one individual for a single date and the person that Maryland Matchmakers connected her with wasn’t even Christian.
Apparently, Tobi Adewole contacted the company and asked them to set her up on another date. Well, knowing that she didn’t drive on the highway and knowing her exact location, they ended up matching her with someone in Pennsylvania.
I thought this was absolutely insane! Talk about a dating scam! This one has got to be one of the biggest matchmaker scams that I’ve come across in quite some time. Tobi apparently wasn’t the only one to complain about the bad service experience. In fact, according to the Better Business Bureau, the Maryland Matchmakers have an addition 46 complaints that have been filed against the company.
A local television station tried to help recoup the Tobi Adewole’s costs here but I don’t think they were very successful.
