    Birmingham millionaire takes applications for wife

    BY FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER • April 22, 2009

    He's a very tall, self-made multimillionaire from Birmingham and ... he's looking for a wife!

    But, ladies, if you want to meet him, you'll need a matchmaker's seal of approval.

    The Birmingham bachelor, who is 44, drives an American car, wants a family and is keeping his name secret, has hired Janis Spindel, a New York matchmaker with 867 marriages to her credit.

    Spindel, whose fee starts at about $50,000, plans to be in metro Detroit next week, "tearing the town apart until I find a wife for a really, really handsome, awesome man."

    Why would someone with a seemingly great résumé need help?

    "He ... has obviously been working like a madman and looking for love in all the wrong places," Spindel says. "He's had a billion horrific blind dates."
    To apply: go to Spindel's Web site: www.janisspindelmatchmaker.com.

    If Spindel accepts your application, you'll be charged $25.

    After that, there's a phone screening.

    If you're selected to meet with Spindel when she's in town, you'll have to pay another $50.

    Sounds like a scam to make the matchmaker money.

    I walked out as soon as they told me they accessed my credit card to tell me I had the balance to pay for their service.

    Shouldn't the millionaire pay for it?
