A Chinese woman is asking for the more than 700,000 yuan ($108,000) she paid to a matchmaking company back because the more than 40 wealthy men she was set up with did not meet her standards.
The woman, whose name has not been released, is divorced, in her mid-30s and lives in Hangzhou, in eastern China’s Zhejiang province. She directed the matchmaking company to find her never-married men under the age of 40 with at least 100 million yuan ($15.4 million) net worth, reported Qianjiang Evening News (via South China Morning Post
The woman, an e-commerce company owner, was told by the company that they could find her candidates that met all her criteria as long as she paid the service fees.
Since 2014, she has paid more than 700,000 yuan ($108,000) to matchmaking company, with the largest single payment having been more than 600,000 yuan ($92,500).
Because the 43 suitors she was set up with did not live up to her expectations, however, she hired debt collectors to get her money back.
The matchmaking company reportedly said the woman was “just picky” and brought police into the matter because they claim the debt collectors had threatened its staff.
