The mayor of Niagara Falls says a Facebook ad for a dating site that’s using his photo is doing so without permission.
Jim Diodati shared a screenshot of the image on his own Facebook page Wednesday.
The ad for MatureDating shows a collage of nine smiling men. Diodati, looking sharp in a suit and tie, is shown in the centre of the bottom row of pictures.
“Enjoy flirty chatting,” it offers, describing the application as a “mature dating site for singles over 40.”
Diodati said he’s not looking for love.
“Please be warned.. this is a fake,” he wrote.
The mayor added he’s received plenty of emails and messages about the ad, which he says is likely connected to a “fraudulent account.”
“This ad has been reported to Facebook. Please use caution and do your homework before responding to any ads.”
