After being affected by a hack attack, in which credit card information of 33 million users was stolen and published online, the Ashley Madison cheating site is continuing to grow. The owners Ashley Madison declared that hundreds of thousands of new users have joined the website in the last couple of weeks. The company that owns the website has been accused of creating fake accounts in a sophisticated and premeditated fraud.
The report claims that the website has created around 70,000 female bots in order to attract more men looking for affairs. It accused the site of programming the fembots to send thousands of fake messages. It isn’t the first time Ashley Madison has been under investigation, a former site employee claimed in a 2012 lawsuit that she was hired to create thousands of alluring female profiles written in Portuguese.
The report determined that only three in every 10,000 members that registered were actual women. That means tens of thousands of accounts were created by the company in order to attract more male customers. At the other side of the spectrum, the report said that there were only 40 malebots. The report said that the private information such as the message exchange of all of its members could be soon released by the hackers as well.
The company is not happy that the focus of the event has been turned inside out, with some journalists attacking the integrity of their website instead of the hackers. The company spokesman boasted that during last week, almost 3 million messages were sent by women within their platform. The owners also said that the ratio between the male clients who actively used the platform and the number of female clients was 1.2 to 1, and that this is precisely the reason why Ashley Madison is the most popular service that offers people discreet relationships.
Further investigations have determined that the number of female members of Ashley Madison is of 5.5 millions, of which almost 800,000 of them are seeking lesbian company.
