Internet dating safety law
Last month, New Jersey became the first state to enact a law requiring the sites to disclose whether they perform background checks.- the only large online dating service that already does such screenings - was elated by its successful lobbying and hopes other states will follow suit."The online dating industry tends to get a real bad rap, because of criminal activity," said True.com's founder and chief executive, Herb Vest.This Google™ translation feature is provided for informational purposes only.The Office of the Attorney General is unable to guarantee the accuracy of this translation and is therefore not liable for any inaccurate information resulting from the translation application tool.
The biggest problem with Internet dating is the snake oil. But a new crop of suits are being pressed by disgruntled customers angry not about false claims by third parties, but about false third parties allegedly created by the companies themselves.
However, Vest's many critics in the industry say he is acting mostly out of self-interest.
They contend that True.com's screening method - running names through state databases of criminal records is incomplete and too easily thwarted, potentially creating a false sense of security for customers."It's so superficial that it's worthless," said Braden Cox, policy counsel with Net Choice, a coalition of e-commerce companies that includes Yahoo, AOL and other major players in online dating.
