Match.com Faces Potential Class Action

- by

Match.com, the Dallas-based internet dating site owned by IAC/InteractiveCorp is facing a potential class action lawsuit over allegations that it misleads its customers about potential matches with people who are no longer active members.

The suit was filed by Sean McGinn, a resident of Brooklyn, NY, who alleges that most of the profiles on the site are for people who have cancelled their memberships or never subscribed. The complaint reportedly states "When a subscriber cancels their subscription, their profile continues to appear to be that of an active subscriber." And, "Nothing indicates to the viewer their limited access to read e-mails or respond to them."

McGinn is seeking class action for his suit, to represent all Match.com members, and is seeking $5 million in damages. According to media reports Match.com has some 15 million current members. The subscription rate is $34.99 for one month and $16.99 for six.

I was a member of Match.com years ago and found nothing and no responses. I decided recently to take them up on their "6-month guarantee" and again found nothing. I spent money on membership twice and was disappointed both times. I would like to be part of the lawsuit.
