The Ashley Madison buzz continues, with an ex-Ashley Madison nude model calling the website a scam, along with threats roaming around online claiming to have a list of the wives of Ashley Madison users poised to be used for blackmailing schemes.
However, out of Chicago comes a new article from the Chicago Tribune about an Ashley Madison user suing the website, because his name was leaked along with millions of others when the Impact Team hacked the Ashley Madison website. Unlike others who are married and used Ashley Madison, Matthew Lisuzzo is a 40-year-old man who began his Ashley Madison account back in 2007 or 2008 — and he isn’t married.
Instead, Lisuzzo claims he simply turned to Ashley Madison because Matthew wanted the type of relationship that he figured would come from the married women using the site — one that wasn’t very complicated and with no strings attached. The Chicago Tribune details the Ashley Madison lawsuit that was filed on Tuesday in Cook County Circuit Court, saying Lisuzzo joined Ashley Madison in 2007. (CBS quotes Matthew’s attorney, Tom Zimmerman, as saying Lisuzzo began his Ashley Madison membership in 2008.)
Ironically, Matthew wants to keep using his Ashley Madison account — but he wants to ensure his financial data is secure and that the fake female accounts alleged to have shown up on Ashley Madison are fixed. Lisuzzo’s lawsuit blatantly shows that he doesn’t mind his name appearing in the press, because he’s not married, but Matthew doesn’t want his financial details making him vulnerable to identity theft. Folks are reacting the Ashley Madison lawsuit with their views of Matthew.
“Dude sounds like a real winner.”
Matthew’s lawsuit against Ashley Madison adds onto at least five lawsuits, reports NBC News, against the parent company, Avid Life Media Inc. Lisuzzo’s lawsuit is unique in that Matthew is single, and wants to keep using Ashley Madison — but wants promises that his data is more secure and that the hackers won’t release more info online. With the way new Ashley Madison lists of names keep popping up online, however, that might be one difficult promise for the company to make with 100 percent certainty.
Lisuzzo also wants the Ashley Madison website wiped clean of the fake female accounts. Apparently, Matthew only wants real married women on the site to choose from.
“[Lisuzzo] desires to continue to use the [Ashley Madison] services provided by defendant, and spend the credits that he purchased, and spend the credits that he purchased on communications with real female Ashley Madison members, but cannot do so without releasing additional personal information and communications that defendant does not adequately encrypt or protect.”
