A dispute in Federal Court lately broken out between a pair of main dating sites.

Anastasia International accused EM Online Ltd. dba Elena’s Models with brand offenses, wrong promotions, indirect interference and illegal competition, in the New York Federal Court in Manhattan. For their webpage, Anastasia uses the websites Anastasiadate and, in addition, Anastasiadate.com. Despite the misconception that EM Online are U.S based, they are in fact headquartered in Australia.

“The organization leading this lawsuit, Anastasia, provide a service by which males from the United States are matched up with women from The Russian Federation or Ukraine. New York City is actually a considerable source of Anastasia’s clients,” the complaint says. “EM Online directly intrudes upon Anastasia’s market. We’ve the required information to believe that EM Online either is controlling, or supports, web sites called: ‘anastasiadatefraud.com’ and ‘ruadventures.com’As a result of a proxy service, websites like these are disguising the identity of their owners. Even so, they redirect customers to the elenasmodels.com website. The foundation of the false marketing allegation stands because of the fact the two dating sites accuse Anastasiadate of very carefully and consistently scamming customers and deceive their clients when purchasing their services, then will continue to claim that the accused, elenasmodels.com, is really 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 repetitive, and report that females shown on Anastasiadate.com aren’t really women trying to find love, according to anastasiadatefraud.com they are really girls who are paid out to chat with men These claims are false, and also the e-mails from the women appear to be fake. Anastasiadate’s priority is to make certain that all the women in the site’s service are genuine females who are seeking love.”

Elena’s Models knows the claims it makes on anastasiadatefraud aren’t true, and had the emails written specifically to harm Anastasia’s business, the complaint states. According to Anastasia, Elena’s Models is making use of its other site, ruadventures.com, to hurt other businesses and promote its very own, in an exceedingly unfair way. “This website, despite claiming to be a forum focused on reviewing online dating sites, is actually noted to be quite selective as it promotes Elena’s Models solely while wanting to harm other businesses. Absolutely nothing about Anastasiadate is valid on this site, because it is really evident that the facts have been twisted to shed a negative light on Anastasiadate,” the complaint states.

According to Anastasia, ruadventures.com has also made illegal use of the copyrighted logo design to attract 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,” the complaint states. Anastasia seeks a preliminary and long-lasting injunction, and treble and punitive damages. Anastasia are being defended by Richard C. Yeskoo.

Anastasiadate’s services include interacting with “several of the Earth’s most beautiful girls!” “It’s not possible to locate a better internet dating service elsewhere,” the online dating claims. The meta description is “your most convenient approach to a stack of responses, authentic and caring women, 24/7 customer care and security.”

An anonymous writer, posting on anastasiadatefraud.com, claims to know every secret behind the renowned online dating site Anastasiadate. Anastasiadate pays women to sign in and pose as single women searching for love, and are paid to do so by the same company, according to him. He knows this because a Ukrainian female that had been chatting with him actually revealed these secrets. For chatting and emailing men, they are promised a high salary and other benefits. The only listed requirements are to be 18 or older, to know English, and also to understand how to work with a computer, according to the website.

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