CHANNEL4 - Nov 19 - According to a study, 80% of online daters misrepresent themselves on dating sites/apps. Lying about age, weight, or using a more flattering photo is a normal practice on dating sites. Well, maybe not, especially if it's treated as sexual fraud. Lawyers are calling for tougher rules governing online dating to make catfishing for sex a crime. Anna Rowe, a victim of such a fraud, started a petition to make catfishing a crime. Anna fell in love with a man she met online. After 14 months of dating, she discovered that he was using fake identity, was married and actively having relationships with multiple women simultaneously. 44K people have already signed the petition. Prof. Irina Manta specializes in intellectual property law in the state of New York. She wrote a paper - Tinder Lies and an article in Washington Post calling for change in the law in the USA.
