Classmates.com Sued Because Classmates Weren't Really Looking For Him

You know how Classmates.com has all those ads and spams telling you how your old school chums are looking for you? Well someone is suing them because after seeing those promotions, he paid to sign up, only to discover no one was actually looking for him. Shocking, I know, but when you think about it, what’s more shocking is that it’s taken 13 years for someone to do it. It’s a pretty clear-cut case of false advertising.Sayeth the lawsuit:

Upon logging into his Gold Membership profile in order to view the classmate contacts … Plaintiff discovered that in fact, no former classmate of his had tried to contact him or view his profile,” the complaint reads. “Of those http://www.classmates.com users who were characterized … as members who viewed Plaintiff’s profile, none were former classmates of Plaintiff or persons familiar with or known to Plaintiff for that matter.

If approved, the suit seeks class action status.
