In (probably) the first ever case of Dait Bate, Match.com is currently accused of fraud in a federal lawsuit. Some of it's members are angry that they were receiving bogus romantic emails from company employees.
"The company said it does not comment on pending litigation. But Match spokeswoman Kristin Kelly said the company "absolutely does not" employ people to go on dates with subscribers or to send members misleading e-mails professing romantic interest. The company has about 15 million members worldwide and 250 employees, she said." - Reuters
