“The Complaintant provides an international dating service which, for a fee, matches up guys in America with women located in the Russian Federation and Ukraine.

We’ve got the essential info to assume that EM Online either is in control, or supports, internet sites called: ‘anastasiadatefraud.com’ and ‘ruadventures.com’. Both  these websites disguise the identity of their owners by using a proxy service. Despite this, they “coincidentally” redirect viewers to elenasmodels.com. These websites try to put Anastasia in a bad light by blaming the site of fraud to the customers, due to the site “being a scam”, and then recommends Elena’s Models alternatively. “The anastasiadatefraud.com website purports to show extracts from e-mails authored by women with profiles on Anastasiadate.com. The email messages are recurring, and claim that girls shown on Anastasiadate.com aren’t really women trying to find love, according to anastasiadatefraud.com they are really women who are paid out to talk with men These claims are false, and the emails from the women seem to be fake.

The complaint says that EM Online are voluntarily false advertising, given that they know that what they’re saying is bogus, and that the e-mails were written with the sole purpose of wrongly ceasing Anastasiadate’s business.

Anastasia claims that ruadventures.com infringes on its copyrighted logo to swipe potential customers. “Through self referential tags, while using Anastasia’s trademarks, the websites are now linked to Anastasiadate, which has made them popular search engine results,” the complaint states. Anastasiadate, needlessly to say, are pressing for charges. It is represented by Richard C. Yeskoo with Yeskoo Hogan & Tamlyn.

Anastasiadate.com gives American men the ability to meet “several of the globe’s most breathtaking females!” “Hardly any other international dating web-site comes close,” the site says. The meta description is “your quickest approach to a stack of responses, authentic and affectionate ladies, 24/7 customer satisfaction and security.”

On anastasiadatefraud.com, an anon writer states that he knows everything with regards to the site. Anastasiadate pays women to log in and pose as single women looking for love, and are paid for this by the same company, according to him.

He states the third-party agencies promise women “high revenue and flexible schedule” to email and chat with American men. The only listed qualifications are to be 18 or older, to know English, and also to know how to work with a computer, according to the website.
