Someone made a profile on a dating site using my husband's name, personal information and pictures. We reported it, and the site has not removed it.

    If you cannot locate one, then call Dock Blanchard in Ocala. He is among the very best of the best.

    Answered . A fake profile would obviously be a violation of the site's terms of service or TOS. However, you need to make sure you reported it correctly, have your read the TOS and does it specify how to report a false profile? I am asure they have had this problem before so they must have a protocol for it.
