SIXTH TONE - Feb 26 - Chinese dating site Jiayuan.com is suing a user who lied in her profile to attract suitors and extort them for expensive gifts. According to Jiayuan, ~190M users are registered on the platform. In September 2017, the company faced intense scrutiny following the high-profile death of a former customer - a tech entrepreneur who wrote in his suicide note that his ex-wife, whom he'd met through Jiayuan, had driven him to despair. The same month, the Communist Youth League, the Ministry of Civil Affairs, and the National Health and Family Planning Commission issued a joint directive requiring real-name registration on dating sites. Jiayuan said that it is working with a third party to establish a social credit system for its users, and that in the meantime it had assembled a team specifically tasked with reviewing and verifying personal information.
