(July 2021)


Product/Service

Match


Allegations

Deceptively advertising “free” accounts and then inducing consumers who create “free” profiles to sign up for paid subscriptions by sending them messages from other members that require a paid subscription to view

Misleadingly advertising that consumers who purchased a six-month subscription received a “match GUARANTEE” and those that did not “meet someone special” during their first six months would receive an additional six months free when the terms and conditions of this offer were not adequately disclosed and were “nearly impossible” for consumers to meet

Making it difficult for consumers to cancel their subscriptions and automatically charging them for a new term at the end of each subscription period


Status
