Please remember also: In the case of Yuliana Avalos and Melissa Midwest former 2014 big lawsuit againts Match Group, third-party scammers in Africa or wherever were creating fake profiles and catfishing with them.
IAC and Match Group were essentially aware of that situation and did nothing to stop it.
The USA Court ruled that IAC and Match Group were not responsible.
