USA DOJ Announces Criminal Charge Against Toyota Motor Corporation

and Deferred Prosecution Agreement with USD1.2 Billion Financial Penalty.
the company defrauded consumers by issuing misleading statements about safety issues in Toyota and Lexus vehicles.
Do you remember ... ? Dannon's Activia, DanActive health claims draw USD21 Million fine.
Power Balance Bracelets lawsuit.
The PIP breast implants scandal.
The 2010 was the year of the "PIP scandal". Thousands of women throughout the world carrying a time bomb: prosthesis with uncertified gel, increased risk of rupture and leak into ganglions, increase risk of developing capsular contractures.
Also "Reebok Had to Pay USD25 Million in Customer Refunds To Settle FTC Charges of Deceptive Advertising of EasyTone and RunTone Shoes! "

A similar case is eHarmony,  a 13 years old site claiming to be "scientifically proven", and they have not got any proof of that!

I live in a South American country and I am really astonished to see how online daters in "1st World" countries are really victims of human experimentation. No actual online dating site  is "scientifically proven" because no one can prove its matching algorithm can match prospective partners who will have more stable and satisfying relationships -and very low divorce rates- than couples matched by chance, astrological destiny, personal preferences, searching on one's own, or other technique as the control group in a peer reviewed Scientific Paper for the majority (over 90%) of its members.

Imagine a NEW Legislation for Online Dating Sites to force them disclose how many active members they have (Premium members: paid or with gift subscriptions) ?
And also force them to conduct ID verification ?
That will improve dramatically the Online Dating Industry!
