December 12, 2012 – Online dating service Soul2Match today announced that it has selected identity verification company miiCard to combat fraud and help members prove they are real people while keeping their personal details secure. Members can add miiCard verified badges to their profile to prove that they have identified their identity to the same level as a passport, driver’s license or photo ID.
Trust is an increasing concern in the online dating industry. In addition to recent data and profile breaches, there were 200,000 cases of financial fraud through online dating last year in the United Kingdom alone.
Jorn Eiting, Soul2Match CEO, said: "These fraud instances have forced online daters to seek out sites that offer more protection and privacy. miiCard helps us create a high level of trust between members, which is critical when you meet people for the first time online. With miiCard identity verification, Soul2Match is the first online dating site to choose miiCard to give members the assurance that a profile is real while keeping their personal information private and protected.”
