A Grindr user is suing the gay dating app after a former partner began to impersonate him on the site and invited dangerous people to his apartment who he claims tried to rape and kill him.New York City based actor Matthew Herrick, 32, stated in a lawsuit that a man he'd began dating from Grindr in 2015 created fake profiles using his images and then gave aggressive suitors the addresses to his apartment and workplace for sex.

In January, one such suitor gained entry to his home, and allegedly attacked Herrick's roommate when he was asked to leave.
The roommate confronted the man in the hallway and told him he was calling the police.
The incidents have caused Herrick significant distress, who said he is in 'a constant state of hyper-vigilance, afraid that Grindr has been used to incite or seduce the wrong person - somebody who will make good on threats to attack or rape [me].'He also stated that he has previously logged 50 complaints to Grindr about the fake accounts and filed 14 police reports, but nothing came of them.
