Man Sues For Teasing Him With Non-Active Profiles

The Daily News says that one Brooklyn man is fed up with writing emails to potential dates on 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.
