The following information was taken from ConsumerAffairs.com

Match.com faces another class action lawsuit claiming it is “little more than a scheme” to bilk consumers and that more than 60 percent of the profiles on the dating site are “either inactive former users or fake or fraudulently posted by scammers and others.”

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.

Gamayo’s suit claims that many of the photos attached to profiles on Match.com are of “pornographic actresses and models, seemingly stolen from independent websites.”

The suit argues that Match “takes virtually no action” to remove lapsed profiles from its site, counting them as “active” members for “months

and sometimes years” after the individuals have become inactive. Match remains profiles only when former subscribers call to complaint, the suit charges.

“Worse yet,” says the suit, “Match overbills and makes unauthorized charges to the debit and credit cards of members and former members alike.”

The suit alleges that Match’s actions violate California’s Consumers Legal Remedies Act, California’s False Advertising Law and other California consumer protection laws.

Match attempts in its Terms of Use agreement to move all litigation to courts in Dallas where it is headquartered, but Gamayo contends that the company is registered with the California Secretary of State and conducts significant business in California and can, therefore, be sued in California.

Can't speak to recent usage, but met my now wife on here and it was great. I didn't detect any scamming then (2007). Still married!

Match is a busy site and I was going on 3 dates a week off it last summer. This site's biggest issue is that ladies sign up, but do not pay and therefore cannot reply or even read messages.

I have seen real women on here too, most cannot reply either as they are not paying members, but they are reports of match.com using inactive profiles as well as using those inactive profiles to send out messages. It is also a pay site and needless to say some unlucky folk have had problems cancelling their membership.

Hey just to let you know, i just signed up to match (i haven't paid any money as im too skeptical about these sites) and i've been searching for girls in my area, and ive seen profiles of people I know/have seen around town.
This isn't to say there aren't fake profiles, but yes there are at least some real girls on there.
