A woman who was using Match.com to meet a potential partner is suing the website for $10 million, after she was almost stabbed to death by her "match". The woman is claiming that Match.com doesn't do enough to screen for violent people.
Mary Kay Beckham of Las Vegas was seeing a man named Wade Ridley in September of 2010 who she met on the site, but eventually decided they weren't right for each other. In response to getting dumped, Ridley snuck into her garage, hid there until she returned, and attacked her with a knife.
"When the police arrested him, he said he wasn't there to hurt me. He was there to kill me," Beckman told Fox 5 News. "His intent was to kill me that night."
It took Beckman quite a while to recover, after she had to go through multiple surgeries to repair her skull and save her hearing.
"They don't say one in five are part of an attempted murder or one in five are killed," Beckman said. "They don't tell you people are missing."
Well, be careful on the internet folks.
