THIS IS WHAT AN UNPROFESSIONAL MATCHMAKER LOOKS LIKE…

UPDATE:  It is now 2019 and over these several years since this incident several other “matchmakers” around the country have contacted me in a similar way.  They don’t know me, my service or my clients NOR DO THEY ASK ANYTHING ABOUT ANY OF THOSE!  Yet they are more than willing to ask me to pimp out my clientele so they can fulfill THEIR contract!  THESE ARE NOT MATCHMAKERS!  Consumers need to start being more savvy instead of being ripped off constantly.  READ the contract in full before signing it!  With every new client, they have to read the contracts in front of me before I start the interview.  It’s been that way for 30 years!

I received this email today. It is so unprofessional I can’t believe it. Does her “client” even know she’s doing this? She doesn’t say who she is, anything about the client other than she was married to a “successful” businessman and is farming out some man who “has a place in Aspen” in exchange.   She clearly did not read my website as I don’t just arbitrarily match someone without a full interview, etc. of my own.

If you run across someone like this RUN THE OTHER WAY!  It turns out she’s a “matchmaker” from Tulsa, OK called Ambiance Matchmaking after I did some research.  Very unprofessional and unimpressive.  There is no explanation of who she is, her company, even her full name in this email.  On behalf of REAL Matchmakers and their trusting clients I’m offended!  But you can bet she wrote to every Matchmaker in Denver and someone will bite…

Hi Michele!

I have a client who has just moved to Denver from Tulsa. She is 47, adorable, fit and fun. Was married to a very successful businessman. Not sure how long she intends to remain in Colorado. Her love life will have a direct impact on that decision. If you could help with a match or two I’d be more than happy to make one of my male clients, 62, fit, handsome and charming (has place in Aspen) available to some of your women in their fifties. He is off-the-chart, I assure you. But down to earth as well. He divides his time between a ranch here in OKC, travel and Aspen.

Let me know what you think and I can their digital files sent over to you.

Thank you and many kind regards,

Leslie

Later I received the following from one of her clients:

Hi, I was duped by Leslie Wardman. I went all the way from Little Rock, AR to Aspen, CO to meet someone whom Leslie and her staff factually misrepresented. The woman in Aspen was LOVELY but we both had been severely mislead about each other, and had we known each other’s situation, we would not have had a “date”. This woman is almost as upset about it as me! So, I’m out thousands of dollars for the trip, plus a non-refundable fee from Ambiance Matchmaking. Thank you for your blog.

I heard from the woman he is speaking of also and she is as upset as he is!  He was charged $4,000 and the Aspen woman was charged $6,000.
