This acquisition might woo some users, but it doesn’t WooMe.
Woo Media, the company behind the hilarious dating site scam WooMe, has been acquired by another dating site that’s been accused of being a scam: Zoosk. According to TechCrunch, very little is known about the acquisition (which it presumes occurred in a firesale). But with the claim of 10 million users, who could blame Zoosk for being wooed?
This guy can. He put together a great YouTube video showing exactly what happens when attempting to sign up for WooMe:

Apparently Zoosk will also acquire the assets of Shufflepeople.com and Monsterchat.com. How fortunate! If only we all were lucky enough to find a dating site that’s willing to take our money with absolutely nothing to offer in return.
