The profiles didn't represent actual members of the site or any real people, but were meant to "entice paying heterosexual male members to join and spend money on the website"

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.

Given what a vile company Ashley Madison is, my Weeners to this is to say "good for her."

What a disgusting premise. I don't get it. "Let's continue to stay with one person who makes us unhappy and cheat on them with another so that I can potentially screw up relations with both".

Cheaters are idiots...

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.


Lets extend your analogy to Amazon. If they sent me an email full of great deals if I join Prime. But, when I do join, only one a few of those items are actually available to buy.

Is this fraud?

FWIW my experience with Adult Friend Finder was pretty positive - but when I got messages from the fakes, 10 out of ten times they were utterly and completely incompatible with my profile, so I didn't even try to answer.  Not to mention that at one point, all of them were from Syracuse, NY.  Also, one other thing I think AFF did was send fake 'messages' to you from other members who had never even heard of you and quite frankly wouldn't have given you the time of day.  I know they also had people in the chat rooms who did nothing but troll for fake profiles - that was bad enough, the bots that ran loose in there for a while were so bad that they actually started to lose members over it and shut that nonsense down.  But the 'gotta-pay-to-reply' thing I think is fairly recent; used to be that free members at least could reply to each other.

I fell for that years ago on one of those sites, joined and then got 6 or so replies from women so I paid the $15 so I could respond back, then never heard a word. And yes, they still do it and yes, they should be prosecuted for it. It's outright fraud.

It sound like some sort of repetitive stress injury.  That does't automatically mean her hands shriveled up and became completely useless.

OTOH, if you don't feel such a thing coming on in just 6 months and don't correct your posture, you're an idiot.

I once started having pain in my wrists and hands.  I improved the way I sat at my desk and it magically cleared itself up.  That was about 20 years ago.  I've been fine ever since.

A company that encourages lies and deceit (and that is allegedly engaging in lies and deceit) has an employee that lies and is deceitful.... hmmm surprise, surprise!!!!

Maybe all parties involved will just die or spontaneously-combust.
