F06: Misrepresented dating site

QUESTION: Do I have any recourse if someone has misrepresented themselves on a dating website?

ANSWER: Every online dating site offers a way to contact the people who own the site and let them know if someone’s behavior should prevent them being listed on the site. But a little fibbing about height, weight, finances, and so on, probably will not get someone banished from the site.
