Humor Rainbow, Inc. OkCupid ripoff, scam, deception, fraud, liars, dishonesty, risk, Dallas Texas
OkCupid, owned by Humor Rainbow, Inc., owned by IAC/InterActiveCorporation, owners of dating site Match.com, is a poorly run, dishonest business that puts legitimate users at risk. No one interested in finding a date or a long-term relationship should risk using OkCupid.
OkCupid terminates accounts without notice and without justification or explanation. You can establish a relationship with a prospective partner or prospective spouse on OkCupid and then lose all contact when they terminate your access to the website. They will claim this is due to a violation of Trems of Service, but they provide no explanation of what the alleged term was or how it was violated.
In my case, I suspect that a prostitute reported me and got me terminated. This woman solicited me, and got me communicating with her off the site. When she became beyond rude and abusive, I terminated any dealings with her. The next thing I knew, my OkCupid account was terminated where I met this freak. My only dealings with her were off the website, and I did absolutely nothing to violate the Terms of Service that I have read carefully.
As of March 10, 2017, I have sent 12 requests for explanation to OkCupid that have gone unanswered. Each of the 12 Requests included the following:

I respectfully request a copy of the Terms of Service and identification of what I allegedly did. I am quite confident that I did nothing improper.
May I also have the address for your legal department?
As you must know, approximately half of the profiles on your site are fakes, scammers. If anything has been done to get me banned, it was likely done by someone who I politely identified as a scammer.
The problem with your banning without explanation is that it interferes with relationships that I have established with sweet ladies. One of them could be my future wife, but now I have no way to contact her.
In addition to the termination of accounts without explanation, OkCupid is a website that is primarily used by scammers and/or prostitutes. I estimate that at least half of the alleged women who appeared on the site or contacted me were scammers.
They claimed to be very attractive women in their 30s intersted in much older men, such as 55 to 90. Many probably were not even women. They claimed to be from a nearby town, but when asked if they were there right now, they'd say things like, No, I am buying gemstones in Ghana. The scams are to try to get money from you after befriending you and claiming to love you.
OkCupid ignores these criminals and allows the criminals to file complaints against the legitimate users who have identified them as scammers.
OkCupid and Match.com are jointly operated as you can determine by reading the Press, legal, and Terms sections of their website. Match.com also has many scammers using their site, though they seem to catch and remove them quickly. OkCupid seems to thrive on allowing the scammers to use their site. I believe this is because the site has so little legitimate traffic that it makes their website appear viable, when it is really a big waste of time.
