‘Executive Gay Dating’ Proprietor Sent To Jail For Matching Rich Singles With Fake Photos

Canadian man Barrie Turner, 66, will serve a 51-month prison sentence and pay $300,000 after being convicted in Seattle of defrauding would-be Internet daters while operating Executive Dating LLC, which controlled some 200 “dating” sites that matched customers who paid up to $1,500 to be introduced to fake matches. Some customers, including those of Executive Catholic Dating and Executive Gay Dating (described as an “absolute rip off”), received the same photo of a prospective match with the personal information changed. Just like you’ve probably experienced on Grindr.

      I’ve always suspected something fishy about these sites. Glad the bastard was caught.

      “Executive Catholic Dating” ???

      LOL, what the f*ck does that mean?

      Let me roll the phrase around my tongue

      Executive …..

      Catholic …..

      Dating …..

      Nope, hasn’t helped. Still pretty meaningless.

      I suppose I should be grateful though that there’s no category for “Executive Atheist Dating” as that would be seriously embarrassing.

      Does this mean my membership in Illegal Alien Executive Dating is no longer valid?

      PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS

      Geeezzzee, I learned ’bout fake profiles when the first VGL 22yo in shape guy 8.5″ turned out to be 40+ fat and bald (I had no interest in seein ’bout the 8.5″ but pretty sure he had a minus rather than a p e n i s :P)…………

      Before I meet anyone from an online site, I ask a photo with some proof of it being taken that day……if they refuse, can be sure the photo they are toutin’ is decades old……
