Tinder’s Dating App
January 2016: This action was dismissed with prejudice because the named plaintiff filed a complaint making similar allegations in a California court before filing this Florida action, giving California jurisdiction over the issues.
October 2015: A false advertising class-action lawsuit was filed against Tinder (a dating app for mobile phones). Among other things, the complaint alleges that Tinder:
- deceptively advertises its services as “free” when, according to the complaint, consumers need to pay for services starting March 2015;
- misleadingly charges consumers multiple times for the same services; and
- continues to automatically withdraw funds from consumers’ accounts without their consent.
(Warner et al v. Tinder, Inc., Case No. 15-cv-23790,S.D. Fla.)
