Hard to find an online date? And then a message arrives! Well, the potential date prospect behind that message may actually be an employee of Match.com!
Match.com, a unit of IAC/Interactive Corp., is accused in a federal lawsuit of goading members into renewing their subscriptions through bogus romantic e-mails sent out by company employees. In some instances, the suit contends, people on the Match payroll even went on sham dates with subscribers as a marketing ploy.
edit: Cool, my submission got the green light on Boing Boing!
