A disagreement in Federal Court has of late broke out involving a couple of top online dating sites

The two internet sites are battling against each other in Manhattan’s Federal Court, in which Anastasia International has accused EM Online Ltd. dba Elena’s Models with fake advertising, infraction of Anastasia’s trademark and an attempt at fabrication of bogus customer feedback against the website. Anastasia is an American based dating company, whilst EM Online is an Australian based online dating site. They both, nevertheless, concentrate on the American market. Consequently, anybody can observe how the two are fighting for the exact same market.

“The Complaintant provides an online dating service which, for a fee, matches up males in the US with women located in the Russian Federation and Ukraine. Ny is a considerable hub of Anastasia’s customers,” the complaint suggests. “EM Online directly impedes upon Anastasia’s market. As a result of our analysis, it is now clear that ‘anastasiadatefraud’ and ‘ruadventures.com’ are both websites produced by Elena’s Models to put a stain on Anastasia’s reputation . Due to a proxy service, such sites are disguising the identity of the owners. To make matters much more suspicious, such sites redirect whomever is viewing them to elenasmodels.com. The premise of the bogus advertising accusation stands due to the fact that the two websites accuse Anastasiadate of carefully and consistently ripping off customers and deceive their customers when choosing their services, after which go on to claim that the accused, elenasmodels.com, is a totally safe and reliable dating site. “The anastasiadatefraud.com website purports to show extracts from e-mails written by women with user profiles on Anastasiadate.com. The e-mails are all recurring, and report that females shown on Anastasiadate.com aren’t really women looking for love, according to anastasiadatefraud.com they’re just females who are paid to talk with men These accusations are false, and also the email messages from the women seem to be fake. Anastasiadate’s priority is to make certain that all the women in the site’s service are authentic ladies who are looking for love.”

The complaint claims that EM Online are voluntarily false advertising, simply because they know that what they’re saying is bogus, and that the e-mails were composed with the sole purpose of unfairly halting Anastasiadate’s business. As outlined by Anastasia, Elena’s Models is making use of its other site, ruadventures.com, to hurt other companies and promote its very own, in an exceedingly unfair way. “The ruadventures.com website, while pretending to be an independently developed forum for the exchange of information about international dating services, in fact is only selecting and publishing negative details about Elena’s Models’ competitors (including Anastasia) and reviews that are positive about Elena’s Models service. The internet site has a lot of false advertisement about Anastasiadate, that has in the long run been mucked around with by EM Online,” as is written on the complaint.Online Dating

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 associated to Anastasiadate, which has made them popular search engine results,” according to the complaint. Anastasiadate are seeking a cease and desist charge for the actions of EM Online. The company represented by Richard C. Yeskoo with Yeskoo Hogan & Tamlyn.

Anastasiadate’s services include meeting ” the globe’s most breathtaking ladies!” “Anastasiadate provides the world’s ultimate internet dating service,” the site says. The site describes itself as “your most effective approach to a stack of replies, genuine and affectionate ladies, 24/7 customer care and security.”

On anastasiadatefraud.com, an anon author says that he knows everything concerning the webpage. According to him, Anastasiadate hires girls who are paid to talk with the customers. He knows this just because a Ukrainian girl that had been communicating with him actually revealed these secrets. He remarks the third-party agencies offer women “high earnings and flexible schedule” to email and chat with American men. The only listed requirements are to be 18 or older, to know English, and to understand how to use a computer, according to the website.

The lady might have been working for Elena’s Models, as she actually suggested the website to him!
