The Massive Market for Online Dating

A dispute in Federal Court has lately broke out between two major online dating sites. The two websites are fighting it out in New York City’s Federal Court, in which Anastasia International has charged EM Online Ltd. dba Elena’s Models with fake advertising, infringement of Anastasia’s brand and an attempt at fabrication of fake recommendations against the website. Anastasia is a U.S based dating company, while EM Online is an Australian based online dating website. Both, however, target the American market. As a consequence, you can discover how the two are contending for the same market.

Online Dating“Anastasia, who’ve carried EM Online to the court, matches American men with Russian and Ukrainian girls. Probably the most highly targeted section of the U,S is New York City”, states the report. “Elena’s Models can be described as a lead adversary of Anastasia. It runs the elenasmodels.com internet site and competes for the same customers as Anastasia in the U.S. Through our analysis, it may be clear that ‘anastasiadatefraud’ and ‘ruadventures.com’ are both websites developed by Elena’s Models to put a stain on Anastasia’s popularity . Due to a proxy service, such sites are disguising the identity of their owners. Despite this, they “coincidentally” redirect viewers to elenasmodels.com. The foundation of the fake advertising allegation stands due to the fact that the two internet sites accuse Anastasiadate of carefully and consistently ripping off customers and deceive the clientele when buying their services, after which will continue to claim that the accused, elenasmodels.com, is a totally safe and reliable dating site. “The anastasiadatefraud.com web site is meant to reveal and uncover e-mails published by the girls who have accounts on Anastasiadate.com. The e-mail extracts all have a common message – the ladies featured on Anastasiadate.com are not truly seeking a relationship with men from the U.S., but instead are contract workers paid to correspond with Anastasia clients and break their hearts. The emails from the women are certainly fake, making these claims false. Anastasiadate’s customers are guaranteed that the women they’re speaking to are 100% authentic women.”

Elena’s Models knows the claims it makes on anastasiadatefraud aren’t true, and had the emails written particularly to hurt Anastasia’s business, the complaint states. Anastasia claims Elena’s uses the ruadventures.com web site to promote its own business and publish false, harmful information about competitors. “While trying to hide underneath the cover of an independent, unbiased forum site, ruadventures.com actually selectively picks out the positive comments about Elena’s Models and promotes that, while attempting to throw other competition out of the way. The site contains false information about customers’ use of the Anastasiadate service which .. has been designed by Elena’s Models,” as is written on the complaint.

Anastasia claims that ruadventures.com infringes on its copyrighted logo to swipe potential customers. “Using metatags utilizing the Anastasiadate graphics, defend[ant] has placed the two internet sites so that they come up at or near the top of any web search for Anastasiadate,” the complaint states. Anastasia is seeking a primary and long-lasting injunction, and treble and punitive damages. The company represented by Richard C. Yeskoo with Yeskoo Hogan & Tamlyn.

Anastasiadate.com gives American men the ability to meet “some of the planet’s most desirable ladies!” “Not any other international dating web site comes close,” the site says. The internet site describes itself as “your most effective approach to a stack of replies, genuine and caring women, 24/7 customer satisfaction and security.”

On anastasiadatefraud.com, an anon author states that he knows everything with regards to the webpage. Anastasiadate pays women to sign in and pose as single women looking for love, and are paid to do so by the same company, according to him. He knows this because a Ukrainian lady that had been chatting with him actually revealed these secrets. He remarks the third-party agencies promise women “high earnings and versatile schedule” to email and chat with American men. The only listed requirements are to be 18 or older, to know English, and to understand how to work with a computer, according to the website.

This writer claims the woman he corresponded with prompted him to sign up for Elena’s Models, calling it “a professional site.”
