Great Expectations fees too great for N.Y.


UPI News Service, 11/08/2005 

A judge ordered refunds for two New York women who learned money can't buy love and neither could Web matchmaker Great Expectations.

Civil Court Judge Diane Lebedeff ruled Monday the women were both dateless and massively overcharged by the Internet dating service, the New York Post reported Tuesday.

The judge returned the $1,000 one plaintiff known as "Jennifer Doe" paid for a six-month membership and "Debra Roe" was refunded the $3,790 she paid for 54 months in service's "marriage program," the Post said.

The judge said New York state law governing matchmaking services limits Great Expectations' monthly fee to $25. Great Expectations' attorney said he would appeal. If Lebedeff's decision is upheld, it would mean refunds for all New Yorkers who were overcharged, the Post said.

The judge noted the plaintiffs were "intelligent, well-spoken and attractive professional women."
