My friend, Ms E, who has been closely following my interactions with Blue Label Life (BLL) messaged me earlier in the week to tell me that she had just heard a news item on the radio about a dating agency in Melbourne being court ordered to refund their matchmaking fee for providing unsatisfactory service.
I googled the story and found that it was actually the same company that I went through, but their Melbourne office.
Read the story here.
I particularly like the part in the article that mentions that BLL believe Sofia’s ‘behaviour and what we felt at the time were unreasonable demands made it impossible for a resolution to be found’.
The article included the journalist’s details, so I emailed him and told him that I too had a similar experience with BLL and asked him to pass on my details and the link to this blog as I would love to talk to Sofia who was featured in the article. He said that had had received a number of similar emails that day.
Later that day Sofia contacted me to tell me that she was being interviewed on the Project on Channel 10. I rushed home to watch and it was a funny little story towards the end of the show. Sofia was asked by the panel if she would get her money back and despite the court order (which BLL are appealing according to the article), she said she has little chance of actually getting the refund, but she is just happy that she has got the word out there so others know how her experience panned out.
I hear ya sister! I feel the same way. Views of my blog went a little nuts that day and I have noticed a new negative post has been posted on True Local since.
