A woman is suing the matchmaker Internet business, Match.com, for $10 million after a man she met via the service broke into her garage and threatened to kill her.
Ms. Beckman said she met Wade Ridley during her second month of Match.com use, in September 2010. They only dated for eight days; after Ms. Beckman broke off the relations, Mr. Ridley attacked her with a knife, she told the media.
“They don’t say one in five [Match.com users] are part of an attempted murder,” she told the media.
