Match.com faces another class action lawsuit claiming it is â€ślittle more than a schemeâ€ť to bilk consumers and that more than 60 percent of the profiles on the dating site are â€śeither inactive former users or fake or fraudulently posted by scammers and others.â€ť
The case was filed on behalf of Kristy Gamayo and other consumers in U.S. District Court iin San Francisco. A was filed in Dallas in January.
Gamayoâ€™s suit claims that many of the photos attached to profiles on Match.com are of â€śpornographic actresses and models, seemingly stolen from independent websites.â€ť
The suit argues that Match â€śtakes virtually no actionâ€ť to remove lapsed profiles from its site, counting them as â€śactiveâ€ť members for â€śmonths
and sometimes yearsâ€ť after the individuals have become inactive. Match remains profiles only when former subscribers call to complaint, the suit charges.
â€śWorse yet,â€ť says the suit, â€śMatch overbills and makes unauthorized charges to the debit and credit cards of members and former members alike.â€ť
The suit alleges that Matchâ€™s actions violate Californiaâ€™s Consumers Legal Remedies Act, Californiaâ€™s False Advertising Law and other California consumer protection laws.
