Today, armed police raided the Lovoo headquarter in Dresden, Germany on accusations of continued commercial fraud.
The leaked emails suggest that for years, the company has run fake profiles that were used to trick users into paying money for being able to communicate with the non-existent women. The mails also document how only an inner circle of high-ranked employees was allowed to know about the fake profile operations, code named "Tue Gutes" ("do good").
Lovoo is said to have 30 million users in 17 countries.
Now people are probably wondering when the companies behind other dating portals will be raided, as everyone knows this kind of fraud is abundant in the "online dating industry".
