Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Match.com has been sued by a man who says the online dating agency wrote him romantic emails and even sent him on a sham date with an attractive employee to encourage him to renew his subscription, Reuters reports

California-resident Matthew Evans filed the suit in a Los Angeles District Court, and believes the actions represent a pattern of behaviour by the US company. His lawsuit is seeking class action status.

Match.com denied that the firm pays staff to go on dates with subscribers or send them bogus emails.

In a separate lawsuit, Yahoo! is accused of posting fictitious profiles of singles to its rival dating service.
