Yuliana Avalos, the lead plaintiff in a $ 1.5 billion lawsuit against Match.com, says the online dating site has allowed scammers to use her photo on numerous fake profiles.
The scam just goes on, fumed a former model whose photo is being used in numerous phony accounts on dating site Match.com.
“They can do facial recognition which will show that my photos are used repeatedly for different profiles,” said Yuliana Avalos, 31, slamming the company for keeping her images online.
Match.com has kept Yuliana Avalos’ images on the website, she contends, even though she told them the dating profiles picturing her were fake and used her photos without her consent.
She said it’s been a year since she posted a Web video to warn about the fake photos and that she still receives emails from men who fell for the catfishing scam.
“I get emails, comments and Facebook messages everyday about all these fakes out there,” added the Florida woman, the lead plaintiff in a $ 1.5 billion federal lawsuit against Match.com.
The company panned the suit as “filled with outlandish conspiracy theories and clumsy fabrications.”
