    Looks like she just wrote a memoir.

    Pretty low to manipulate people through their loneliness. This really lends credence to the advice that people ought to meet each other ASAP.

    Man, I'd hate to hear about this if I was still on OLD!

    Here's what I read in the FTC's suit:

    22. ....in some months between 2013 and 2016, more than half of instant message initiations and favorites that consumers received originated from accounts that Defendant identified as “fraudulent,” meaning that Defendant determined the Match.com user was likely to be perpetrating some form of scam.

    23. Defendant used these fraudulent communications to induce consumers to subscribe to Match.com. When consumers received these communications, they also received
    accompanying advertisements from Defendant encouraging them to subscribe to Match.com in order to view the content of the communication and the identity of the sender. These advertisements did not disclose whether Defendant had identified the Match.com user as likely to attempt to defraud the consumer receiving the message or as requiring further review by Match’s fraud review process due to the likelihood that the user is engaging in fraud.

    24. Specifically, when nonsubscribers have received likes, favorites, emails, and instant messages on Match.com, they have also received automatically generated emailed advertisements from Defendant encouraging them to subscribe to Match.com to view the identity of the sender or the communication they received. These advertisements represent that the communication the nonsubscriber received was sent from a legitimate user of the site who has expressed interest in the consumer receiving the message.....

    It's because of the terrain.
