Dating Site Scam- FTC Lawsuit Says Match.com Lured Subscribers With Fake Love Messages: Match.com “used fake love interest advertisements to trick hundreds of thousands of consumers into purchasing paid subscriptions.” The FTC sued Match Group, which owns Match.com, Tinder, OKCupid, PlentyOfFish, and other dating sites. According to an FTC statement, up to 30 percent of the users who register for Match.com every day are there to perpetrate scams. These include “romance scams, phishing schemes, fraudulent advertising, and extortion scams.”
If indeed this goes to trial, it will be interesting to see how it plays out, but it will probably be settled out of court and Match.com will promise to clean up it’s act. In the meanwhile, if you have a free Match.com profile and you get a message suggesting that you subscribe because someone is interested in you–as with all online services–think carefully before you punch in that credit card number.

Listeria Outbreak Justice: Owners of the food company responsible for Spain’s worst ever listeriosis outbreak arrested for manslaughter. Investigators say the three men knew that their products had tested positive for listeria but did nothing to get rid of the bacteria.
Since August, the outbreak has killed three people, caused seven miscarriages, and infected more than 200 people. The source of the bacterial infection was traced to a Seville-based company called Magrudis, which sold a contaminated pork loin product called carne mechada under the brand name La Mechá. Three more products produced by the company also tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.

Spain will remove rights for British residents post-Brexit if the UK does not reciprocate: Spain is demanding reciprocity from the United Kingdom in one of the most sensitive aspects of Brexit: treatment of its migrants. The Spanish government has urgently passed legislation in order to protect the rights of the 365,967 Britons who are officially resident in the country, but has yet to see similar mechanisms put in place in the United Kingdom for the Spaniards who have made that country their home. The caretaker foreign minister, Josep Borrell, has already conveyed this concern to the British government of Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and has warned that, if there is no equivalent move from the UK as the country leaves the European Union, the Spanish framework for British residents will decline.
The UK’s current Brexit minister, Steve Barclay, met last week in Madrid with Spain’s caretaker Foreign Minister Josep Borrell. The rights of citizens, one of the most symbolic elements of Brexit, were a key part of the debate. Barclay expressed his gratitude for the law that had been approved by Spain, which is the country of choice for the majority of Britons who opt to live in the EU. But Borrell warned the minister that these advantageous conditions will only be maintained if they are reciprocal, a standpoint about which the British delegation requested clarifications.
“We have told them that our royal decree will ensure that everything remains the same in the case of a no-deal Brexit,” said Luis Marco Aguiriano, Spain’s secretary of state for the EU, and who took part in the meeting with the British minister last Thursday. Speaking to EL PAÍS via telephone, he added: “But for that, reciprocity is necessary. And reciprocity cannot be guaranteed in half-measures – it is either there, or it isn’t.”
