‘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.
