The WA owners of dating website, acused of creating fake dates, resumes and failing to generally deliver the service they promoted are now having to front in the Federal Court after the The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission instituted proceedings against them.

The owners of the website www.redhotpie.com.au who atre also directors of Jetplace Pty Ltd, face being shut down. The ACCC alleges the directors of Jetplace, Mr Mark Semaan and Mr Maxwell James McGuire, were knowingly concerned in, and party to the contravening conduct.

The ACCC is also alleging that Jetplace created and published fictional profiles on its website and used them to send ‘flirt’ and other messages to registered users.

The ACCC alleges Jetplace engaged in misleading conduct by representing that:

Each and every profile was created by a person who came to the site and registered
Any profile identified in a search conducted by a member would be a member created profile, and 
Every profile viewable on the website and every message received from a profile provided an opportunity for a member to socialise with, and potentially meet, a member who created that profile or caused the message to be sent when that was not the case.

The ACCC is seeking declarations, injunctions, orders and costs. A directions hearing has been scheduled for 10:15 a.m. on 10 December 2009 in the Federal Court, Perth before Justice Gilmour.
