Share On GoogleShare On FacebookShare On Twitter , one of the largest online dating sites, has been accused in a California lawsuit of using their staff as date bait. The service, which charges about £17 a month, guarantees you’ll “find someone special within 6 months”. And if not? Well, if really did send staff on dates as the lawsuit alledges, there probably aren’t many users getting refunds in the vicinity of’s headquarters.

But it’s not just that’s been named in an online dating related lawsuit this week. Our familiar friends Yahoo ( Yahoo Personals ), who have had all sorts of negative press recently, are also being sued in a seperate California lawsuit alledging “breach of contract, fraud and unfair trade practices”.
