Gyrfalcon: StoPPeRmobile: viscountalpha: I hope both sides their get their lawsuits thrown out and both brought up on fraud charges.Sounds like fraud to this farker that is not an attorney.Depends which part you're talking about.That the site alleged to hook idiots up with women who would help them cheat on their spouses? Not fraud. That they had profiles--even a large number of profiles--which were of fake women? Not fraud. As long as there were in fact a few actual women who would in fact hook up with said idiots via the dating site; then the site itself was not fraudulent. Now, if they had ZERO women on the site, and just took the money and had NOBODY to hook up with said idiots, then yes, it was fraud.But having phony profiles to entice fools to part with their money is just using PT Barnum's maximum combined with HL Mencken's observation to make oodles of cash. As long as there are a few real people involved, there is no fraud.
OgreMagi: I figured out a long time ago that most of the online dating sites are deeply involved with outright fraud, preying upon lonely single guys (like me). A standard practice of FriendFinder was to use fake accounts (with hot pictures) to message guys on new basic accounts. To respond to the message you had to pay for a regular account, the basic didn't allow that. Of course, you would never get a response. Within a week of this happening the profile that messaged you would disappear. Yes, I fell for that scam once. But only once. I was newly divorced and still trying to figure out how to get back on the dating scene, so I was rather naive.It wouldn't surprise me if they still did this. They should be prosecuted for it.
JoieD'Zen: I rtfa just to see wtf this was all about.Here's my summary -Equilibrist: Cristo, o que é um idiota
The_Original_Roxtar: can't we just kill everyone involved?
