MyLife’s Reputation Platform Protects Online Daters from Predators, Scammers, and Fraud
May 30, 2018 -- /MYLIFE/ -- Elite Mate, the top dating site for affluent professionals, announced today it will implement MyLife identity verification and Reputation Scores into all of its dating profiles, setting a new standard for safety in the online dating world. The integrated MyLife widget will verify user profiles, in addition to providing easy access to Background Reports, Reputation Scores, and personal reviews of all of its members. For the first time ever, singles using dating websites will have assurance that the person behind the dating profile is exactly who they claim to be.
MyLife’s new reputation platform for developers comes at a time when as many as 84 percent of singles on dating websites are falsifying some portion of their profiles, while 10 percent of profiles are entirely fake, according to Psychology Today.
“As a dating site that predominantly caters to high-wealth business professionals, we want our users to feel confident and secure that the person they are talking to is precisely who they say they are,” says XX, CEO of Elite Mate. “MyLife’s reputation platform is likely the biggest (and most needed) advancement to hit the online dating industry in years. No more second guessing or needless worrying—now with MyLife, our members are receiving the highest protection against dating fraud available.”
MyLife’s platform includes compiled government, social, and public records for more than 320 million people in the United States, giving access to verified background records including a person's age, past and current marital status, criminal and court records, lawsuits, liens, and bankruptcies, as well as Yelp-like personal reviews and an overall Reputation Score. This makes it virtually impossible for online predators, scammers, and frauds to sneak through the cracks.
It is not only online dating websites, such as Elite Mate, that stand to gain from integration of the new MyLife reputation platform. Other popular online marketplaces, such as local services providers like HomeAdvisor and Angie's List, pet and childcare services like Rover.com and Care.com, peer-to-peer Classifieds and sales sites like Craigslist, and ride-sharing services like Uber will all benefit from MyLife identity verification and Reputations Score integration
“The MyLife platform is not only a huge boon for customer service and safety, but it is also a large driver of commerce and engagement,” says Jeff Tinsley, CEO of MyLife.com. “With this new caliber of security and honesty, online marketplaces and dating sites stand to earn the business and participation of the millions of individuals who currently abstain from these sites out of fear of fraud.”
