AAP - Nov 13 - Three "romance robbers" from True Love Corp must pay ~$1.5M for exploiting vulnerable clients and leaving them dateless and destitute. NSW Fair Trading Commissioner Rod Stowe says True Love's conduct was "despicable" and he hopes "other ruthless operators" in the dating game will take note of the landmark decision against them. Zivko Dimitrijevski, the former director and his wife Helen Dimitrijevski, a former manager of TLC, have been ordered to pay compensation of $1,123,095 and banned from working in the introduction industry. Hollie Veall, a former co-director, was ordered to pay $342,050. In most cases the clients were told to upgrade their memberships, at significant cost, to meet more people and have life coaching and grooming services but didn't get anything and it turned out the prospective partners on the databases were largely nonexistent.
