If a dating service doesn't perform such screenings, it must acknowledge that in large capital letters in every electronic communication with members from New Jersey, who would be identified by zip codes they provide when registering.Details of the notification rules are still being worked out.Services that do conduct screenings must disclose that fact and say whether they allow people with criminal convictions to use the site.Those services also must note that background checks are not foolproof, but that disclaimer doesn't have to be displayed as prominently as the disclosure by companies that don't do screenings.More broadly, some worry that New Jersey's action will push other states to regulate the online dating industry, creating a hodgepodge of laws that will drive up operating costs and force some companies out of business.Some in the industry say they'd prefer federal legislation addressing background checks, rather than a patchwork of state laws. Projections by Jupiter Research, an Internet consultancy, suggest the online dating market now totals 0 million or more, and Online Dating Magazine estimates that more than 20 million people visit online dating services each month.
Methods used in more probing background checks - such as fingerprint scans and research into employment records and Social Security numbers - are not required by the law.Match.com, one of largest dating services, said it had been assessing online background checks for six years and concluded they offered no extra protection."is disappointed New Jersey has enacted a flawed and unconstitutional law and we will explore opportunities to challenge it," a company statement said.Even sponsors of the New Jersey bill conceded it was imperfect, but suggested it would at least make online daters more aware of security concerns.A Cleveland firefighter, George Greer, was indicted last June for raping a woman he met through an Internet dating site.An online dater in New York City, actor/musician Franca Vercelloni, said background screenings "couldn't hurt matters" but should not be a reason for dropping one's guard."You're not going to rely on what you learn from the online profile anyway," said Vercelloni, who's in her late 20s.
