True.com in Class Action Lawsuit Settlement Discussions


(Online Dating Newsletter) Online dating service True.com is in settlement talks over the class action lawsuit filed against the company in June 2007. According to a motion filed in Dallas, Texas:

“The parties are presently engaged in settlement negotiations and have agreed to conduct a mediation by January 31, 2009, subject to the availability of an
agreed mediator. The Parties believe that a mediation may result in the settlement of this lawsuit, subject to Court approval. To facilitate these settlement negotiations and avoid incurring needless expense pending mediation, the Parties have agreed to a short stay of the lawsuit until January 30, 2009.”

As reported by the Online Dating Newsletter in December 2008, True.com was denied a request for a summary judgement, allowing the class action lawsuit to move ahead. The lawsuit stems over True.com’s billing practices.

    This is great news for people who use online dating services. These services should be held accountable for over-billing and not canceling accounts when requested. Of curse this is one service I have never heard of, anyone using a non-established or non-trusted service should always use a pre-paid debit card to prevent over-billing.

    All businesses should be held accountable by the courts if they cannot follow what should be common sense business practices.

    The only bad part of lawsuits like this is only the lawyers really seem to benefit.

    I also attempted to cancel and was told that they, as a “courtesy” to me, would extend my trial period by two weeks. Two weeks later, I got charged $65 for their service. This is after customers are told that the service cost’s 49.99.
