When you’re a Brazilian immigrant and you’re offered a starting salary of $34,000 by a dating website, you should consider the possibility that you might be expected to do some dirty work. However, Doriana Silva realized she was doing so too late.
In 2010 Silva filed a $20 million lawsuit against Ashley Madison Married Dating & Discreet encounters. She also requested an additional $1 million in damages from the dating service company. Her case was recently reviewed in court and Silva claimed to have injured her wrists and her forearms while working for Ashley Madison. The company told Silva they would pay her $34,000 if she could create 1,000 fake female profiles on their site so they could lure married man into paying the website for their services. However, Silva had just 3 weeks to complete the work, which meant creating 48 profiles per day. Even the fastest type-writers would struggle to complete such a mammoth task.
Ashley Madison never responded to Silva’s complaint and there’s still no official statement from the company regarding the woman’s case.
