In Minshull Street Crown Court, Manchester, Schofield stormed out of the dock as prosecutors detailed his shocking history of violence against a string of girlfriends dating back to 2009.
One of his previous victims had been threatened with a crowbar, headbutted and stripped of her clothing whilst another was punched in the stomach and grabbed until she almost fainted.
Lazenby, from Colne, in Lancashire, had exchanged messages with both via Plenty of Fish website before arranging to meet them both on “dates”, Burnley Crown Court was told.
This site claims to highlight dating scams but posts haven't been updated for years (this review is dated 2011).
Additionally people can post anonymously without fear of retribution.
They also make bold claims about the dating training they offer suggesting that they can “tell you what you need in a relationship, where you screwed up (without knowing it) in past relationships.” After being matched, users can the decide whether they would like to start messaging them on the site.
From then on, it is up to the users whether they would like to chat more or even meet in person.
There have been several cases where people have used Plenty of Fish to meet people in order to carry out criminal acts.
In February 2017, 27-year-old Scott Lazenby was jailed seven years for raping one woman he met on the site and molesting another victim in front of her own son.The site then offers a lengthy, if not entertaining, chemistry test, where users answer a series of questions to establish their character.The data from this is then used to match people with other users who it is believed they will have a spark with.In an effort to reverse the damage done by this kind of site we're posting ourselves.We've even given ourselves an excellent rating, it had to be done.IN THIS day and age, singletons are much more likely to turn to digital dating in their quest for romance.
