It amazes me how some people get rich.

For somebody who can plop down a million bucks to invest in something, you’d think they’d take the time to check out what they’re investing in, no?

I guess that was too much work for Jordan Zimmerman, part owner of the NHL’s Florida Panthers.

The advertising conglomerate is currently in litigation with two men who took Zimmerman’s money as an investment to what Zimmerman thought was a dating site. And it was, if ‘dating’ means ‘porn’.

Per the Sun Sentential:

Florida Panthers minority owner and advertising mogul Jordan Zimmerman has filed a lawsuit against two fellow Boca Raton businessmen to recoup a $1 million investment into a pornography website that he thought was a legitimate dating service, a source has confirmed.

Zimmerman and co-plaintiff Al Malnik gave Marc Bell and Dan Staton $1 million apiece to invest into Friendfinder.com, a dating service website. They stated in the suit filed in Palm Beach County court that Bell and Staton invested the money into sites they never heard of that were linked to Penthouse Magazine’s pornography empire, featuring X-rated websites.

Zimmerman’s lawyers are saying it was a ‘bait and switch’ technique used by the men, duping the Panthers owner into the embarrassing situation.
