Two internet sites, featuring online dating services, have taken each other to Federal Court. Anastasia International accused EM Online Ltd. dba Elena’s Models with brand offenses, incorrect marketing, tortious interference and illegal competition, in the New York Federal Court. Anastasia utilizes the domains Anastasiadate and Anastasiadate.com for its website. EM Online is located in Australia.
“The organization leading this court case, Anastasia, give a service through which adult males from the United States are matched up with girls from Russia or Ukraine. New York is actually a significant source of Anastasia’s clients,” the complaint says. “As a consequence, the two web pages concentrate on the exact same place, meaning that they are both competing for the same prospective buyers, with regards to the U.S Market. We’ve the required details to believe that EM Online either is managing, or supports, internet websites known as : ‘anastasiadatefraud.com’ and ‘ruadventures.com’As a result of a proxy service, such sites are disguising the identity of their owners. Despite this, they “coincidentally” redirect viewers to elenasmodels.com. The premise of the bogus marketing allegation stands because of the fact the two internet sites accuse Anastasiadate of carefully and indefinitely scamming customers and deceive their potential customers when purchasing their services, and then go on to claim that the accused, elenasmodels.com, is really a totally safe and reliable dating site. “The anastasiadatefraud.com website proposes to show extracts from e-mails written by women with user profiles on Anastasiadate.com. The emails are all duplicated, and claim that ladies shown on Anastasiadate.com aren’t really women trying to find love, according to anastasiadatefraud.com they’re just ladies who are paid out to talk with men The emails look to be quite fake, and so anastasiadatefraud.com can be accused of false advertising. Anastasiadate’s top priority is to ensure that all the ladies in the site’s service are real girls who are seeking love.”
Elena’s Models knows the claims it makes on anastasiadatefraud are not true, and had the emails written specifically to harm Anastasia’s business, the complaint states. Quite unjustly, Elena’s Models is using ruadventures.com to fend off any competition so that it can prosper at their expense. “The ruadventures.com website, while acting to be an independently developed forum for the exchange of info about international online dating services, in fact is just choosing and posting negative details about Elena’s Models’ competitors (including Anastasia) and positive reviews about Elena’s Models service. The internet site holds lots of false advertisement about Anastasiadate, which has truly been mucked around with by EM Online,” as is written on the complaint.
According to Anastasia, ruadventures.com has also made illegitimate use of the branded logo design to attract clients. “Due to how search engines like google work, using the Anastasiadate’s trademarks has made ruadventures.com far more visible on Google, Yahoo, Bing and other search engines,” the complaint states. Anastasiadate are searching for a cease and desist charge for the actions of EM Online. Yeskoo Hogan & Tamlyn’s Richard C. Yeskoo is standing for the plaintiff.
Anastasiadate.com gives American men the ability to meet “some of the world’s most desirable women!” “Anastasiadate provides the world’s best dating service,” according to the site. The internet site describes itself as “your fastest approach to a stack of replies, legitimate and loving girls, 24/7 customer support and security.”
An anonymous writer, posting on anastasiadatefraud.com, claims to know every secret behind Anastasiadate. Anastasiadate pays women to sign in and pose as single women trying to find love, and are paid to do so by the same company, according to him. A woman form the Ukraine told him these details, and that’s why he’s now exposing it to everyone. Women are promised a lot of cash and decent working hours, simply for chatting and emailing American men, by a third party company attached to Anastasiadate. The only listed qualifications are to be 18 or older, to understand English, and also to know how to work with a computer, according to the website.
According to the same writer, the woman recommended Elena’s Models since, according to her, was a much more serious site.
