This is good news and I suspect it won't be the last. A lot of other companies need to clean up their act.

I wrote about these sites in my blog in 2006 and have kept getting comments posted there describing others' bad experiences. My original post was quite cautionary. I'm glad to see that I was right.

I agree with Ross. This is really good news as more and more "dating sites" out there are just pure scams and are only out to swindle money from innocent people looking for the right person. Hopefully they get other equally malicious sites as well.


I was a victim of this fraud and struggled to get someone to do something about it. I contacted the BBB, local news, and many other organizations who didn' seem to want to stop this man. I am so happy to see this has been prosecuted and hope he gets truly held accountable and not just slapped on the wrist. I received matches from people that he copied from other web sites and false letters that he sent from people who did not exist. It would be nice to get some money back but I'm just happy he cannot continue to defraud others.
