In a move reminiscent of a chapter from Neuromancer, a secret group of hackers stole a corporate database and apparently ransomed the corporation using the stolen data as leverage.
The data release proves several frauds of the corporation:
*User delete service, where the user details are not actually deleted.
*Misleading customers, by creating fake ‘products’ (bait user accounts).
*Misrepresenting the users chances of success of product use ( the ratio of real male to female accounts was possibly as high as 1000 to 1).
Of course this will lead to more lawsuits against Ashley Madison who have in the past paid out on misrepresenting their user base for a profit motive.
You will need a torrent service to download the database.
If you pay for an internet dating site you are probably a man, and you are probably more likely to meet the woman of your dreams in a gay night club.
So if you are thinking this fraud is isolated you might be surprised that any organized paid for dating service is a fraud.
