The second group of people that knew the dirty truth long ago are the people who have spent more than sixty second on any of the big dating sites and also have an IQ over 80. The third group of people who knew all along about the fake profiles includes anyone who was a founder or early employee at any of the dating sites.
I have sampled most of the famous-name dating sites (Why would I try just one? My guess is that many of them thought they would cheat the membership numbers in the beginning to get traction, then go legit over time. And obviously they knew what the competing sites were doing. Now if you will excuse me, I need to go back to reading the news that men look for sex when they are not getting enough.

Seems to be a lot of fake profiles getting through lately and POF doesn't seem to be catching them when it is pretty obvious.

Posted August 29th, 2015 @ am When the Ashley-Madison hack revealed that the vast majority of female profiles on the “dating” site were fake, three groups of people already knew that.

They all seemed to be populated with hot people on day one.Dating does not include listings for all dating sites.The investigation by Danny Forston was launched after JDI Dating, the British company that owns sites such as as well as 17 other dating sites, was investigated by the US Federal Trade Commission.If you are building a business that only has value if populated by lots of users on day one, you can’t get there from here. And if you do, there is some special case going on. (Otherwise they would not be in business today.) Did any of them get there organically, or even honestly?Again, anyone with five minutes of business experience already knows the answer, statistically speaking.
