As reported here last week, online dating giant Match.com was served with a lawsuit claiming that they engaged in fraudulent and deceptive business practices, and specifically alleging that they used paid shills to go out on dates with their customers, and to write them romantic email.
Now the online dating service has struck back, claiming that it never happened, and that the woman in question has signed a statement under oath proclaiming that she never worked for Match.com, and that she was never paid by Match.com to go out on dates with Match.com customers.
The plaintiff in the lawsuit, Matthew Evans, claims that the woman confessed to him that she was a Match.com employee. Of course, this is all easily discoverable, and if she was in fact on the Match.com payroll, that will be readily proven simply by looking at Match.com payroll records, unless of course she was not paid on the record.

Match.com has demanded that Evans and his attorneys dismiss the lawsuit. Said Match.com spokesperson Kristin Kelly, “The suit apparently was filed by Evans and his attorneys on the basis of no evidence whatsoever and without any investigation of the facts as required by federal law. We are exposing this suit for what it is a cynical attempt to impugn the good name of Match.com, at the expense of the millions of quality single people who have entrusted their emotional futures to us. Rest assured that Match.com intends to fight back against this totally baseless attack with all of our resources.”
People who have “entrusted their emotional futures” to them?? Gag. Even if Match.com didn’t do what Evans claimed, they should be found guilty of reckless use of a mouthpiece, and assault with an emetic weapon.
