The Daily News says that one Brooklyn man is fed up with writing emails to potential dates on Match.com and never getting a response. It’s not that he has a “bad personality” — it’s that the profiles are of people who have canceled.
From the Daily News:
On May 30, subscriber “ajsky65” sent an e-mail to a former female subscriber called “traehi” and was informed that she was online, the lawsuit says.
Over several weeks, “traehi” received 33 e-mails and hundreds of so-called “winks” from subscribers but could not access them, the lawsuit claims.
“Match misleads paying subscribers by charging them for the ability to write e-mails to members who can’t reply to their e-mails or even read them,” the lawsuit charges.
The lawsuit is for $5 million, and the lawyer representing the ignored would-be-lover is hoping to expand it into a class action.
