CBC NEWS - Mar 25 - Two Canadian women, Gabriela Klacansky and Jan Blackmer, say they are out thousands of dollars after signing up with dating service Lifemates Canada. Gabriela Klacansky was interviewed at a Lifemates office in Vancouver. She describes the interview as a "draining interrogation" that lasted more than 2½ hours. She paid ~$4,300 for a one-year membership. Her first match was so off it seemed random or maybe a mistake. She gave the company one more chance, but the next match was no better. Klacansky asked for a refund, but got an "outright refusal" to cancel her membership or offer compensation. Jan Blackmer tells a similar story. "They asked me to bring financial documents with me to prove that I had money in the bank … so that I qualified", she says. Lifemates Canada says the two women gave up too soon.
