Contacting the Vida Consultancy at a time of desperation was the biggest mistake of my life. I was at a low phase soon after a break up when I found Vida online. I sent an inquiry after reviewing their website. Finding the ultimate life partner is an important goal in my life and I was willing to take out large chunks of money from my savings account for this service.
After scheduling a complimentary consultation, where I was promised to be set up with the most exclusive singles in the world. Major promises were made in person, where photos of "models" were shared with me. I was sold and signed the contract.
....AND MY NIGHTMARE with Vida begun. After the
long 2 hour interview with my matchmaker, which was supposed to integrate psychological principles, I knew I was scammed. There was nothing psychological about the interview. I have worked with a therapist in the past and I know a little bit about the field of psychology. None of their matchmakers are psychologist. Each just a student of psychology.
I tried to remain positive and waited weeks to receive my first match. When i shared my displeasure, I was told to look at the contract closely. The terms and conditions in the fine print were completely different. The matches were an insult to my intelligence. It was clear they have no experience with other ethnicities and have no international contacts.
It gets better....I was then told by my matchmaker that I have a problem and I need to purchase their dating blue print and coaching for an additional cost of several thousands. That was it. There begun my battle of trying my get my hard earned money back. The entire vida team are con artist and nothing more. Don't make the same mistake I did. My matches were random people they found on the the internet on dating websites. I could have done that myself. There is no "black book" of singles. I can't believe companies operate this way.
I hope this review educates other singles. Don't waste your money on elite matchmaker. Their awards are fake. Rachel created "The Matchmaking institute" where she gives herself yearly awards. All rubbish!!!
