I suspect Be2 simply translated its personality test into several languages as if it were only an ipsative instrument for entertainment purposes.

Who independently validated/certified Be2 test???

As Parship, Ulteem and others, there is not any Scientific Paper peer_reviewed that substantiate "be2 is the professional, scientifically based personal introduction service for creating lasting relationships."
http://www.be2.com/tourpage/page1


How a prospective client could differentiate Be2 from Ulteem and Be2 from Parship? They all three have a whole precision of their matchmaking algorithms less than any person could had achieved searching by his/her own!!!

It is really funny that Dr. Wuttke said "We like the Spanish speaking countries" and Be2 is full of fake lovestories.

The Spanish speaking countries are terrible because if you do not exactly customize the site to taste/sound/look really local, you are not going to get traction.
Even Match.com had failed to do that!
Spanish for Argentina is quite different from Spanish for Spain, Spanish for Venezuela&Colombia and from Spanish for Chile.

Even Match (Argentinean site) has fake lovestories like this http://ar.match.com/success/successStories.aspx

Fernando,
reading your comments it is clear for me that you are expert in the area.
Two points :
1. When we see your dating site life ? It seems your site will be much better then any others. It will be also perfect and do not have any of problems which you think other sites has... How long we shall wait :-) ? Come one , show us !

2. Respect to be2.com and eharmony. We doing business there and guys make there "money machines" working good for them and for clients.

Regards,
Max

Hi "Max"

1) Not known. I hope sooner.

2) eHarmony could be a "money machine", but I seriously doubt on Be2.
FYI, Be2 service under fraud investigation in Mexico and Spain, seems they have some denounces in consumer associations. [You can use Google/Yahoo and search: Be2 + fraude]
See example: http://elfraudebe2.blogspot.com/

Hello "Fernando",
Answer for both points above : invest 1-2m USD, get business to produce first 10m USD revenue a year and then please back with suggestions.

Until this moment I not really understand your position in be2/eharmony area. It seems you just not love them because they are successful.

Regards,
Max

Here in Belgium, the dating site like Be2, Parship and Meeticaffinity have to respect the laws on matrimonial agencies.

They can not fake profiles or stories. They may not reconduct the contract tacitly. They have to give the opportunity to pay a 3 months in 3 times.

Parship faced problem with justice yet.
They announced 80.000 customers... they were obliged to write the real number which is 5012 ( this figure has not change for weeks)

http://www.b-gsm.com/parship_pg_FR.pdf
http://fr.parship.be/docs/public/conditions/

The company which injected 15 millions euro also injected 5 millions in Netlog, the company which does not respect laws on privacy and is doing viral marketing
( like nice-people.be )

In FRance Meetic is also illegal, they reconduct the subscription tacitly. This is forbiden with matrimonial laws and I think with the Chatelet law.

Hey, do you have any idea what "5000 premium members in Belgium" means?

Everyone pays about 40 US$ per month which means about 2.5 Million US$ annual turnover. And Belgium is real small...

Be2 is very well known to be a worldwide scam, and NEEDS to be shut down. First they charge your 5$, then 180$ after, there's no way to cancel it or what so ever, the customer service are just computers, that won't do anything. If you block the payment from your bank, they will put the blocked payment into a debt collector.

Hi,

From your post it seems you have been unhappy with our service. If you feel that your case has been mishandled in any way please write to me and I will investigate it personally.
