Ashley Madison CEO Noel Biderman has appeared on Bloomberg to strongly defend his site against accusations from ex-employee Doriana Silva that they forced her to create fake profiles on the site.
Silva is suing the extramarital site for $21m, claiming she sustained wrist injuries while typing up over 1,000 illegal fake profiles.
Yesterday we reported that Ashley Madison has slapped Silva with a countersuit, asking for the return of confidential documents which she is using as evidence in the case.
Silva claims the documents show that Ashley Madison created fake profiles for a Brazilian version of the site which she worked on.
On Bloomberg, Biderman rubbished these claims:
“What she submitted was QA testing – in a technology firm you give quality assurance, you make sure that the site works when you launch into a new country, like we just did.
“She was also instructed to build male profiles, she was instructed to do payments.
“So would she be saying, “oh we’re fraudsters” because we’re putting through fake payments? No, we’re running testing.”
