A Cheaterville user has been accused of defamation by an innocent husband. Jared Powers, of Sacramento, Calif., searched for himself on Google and found some very disturbing information. According to ABC News 10 Sacramento on August 22, 2013, his wife Winona was just as shocked.
Winona said someone swiped her Facebook photos and put them on Cheaterville.
When the couple looked on Cheaterville they found his name and pictures on the website. The description claimed that faithful husband Jared was, "Gay, Married, and Looking for Sex on Craigslist." They site's tagline is, "Don't Be the last know," but apparently he was in this case.
When they asked Cheaterville to remove the erroneous post they were told that they could leave a comment contesting the veracity of the information on the site. The couple was livid and could not believe what they were hearing. The company also told them that if they were willing to pay a $200 fee and agree to third-party arbitration, the post could then be removed. The couple did so and now it is no longer there. The Powers' have filed a federal lawsuit against the unknown perpetrators.
Cheaterville offers to let people know if they are being cheated on. They gather suspicious information from a variety of unnamed sources using a search algorithm. A database containing the information collected is then displayed on the site. Members are allowed to comment on the information as well as post their own findings.
