According to reports , the man in his 40's surnamed Zhang, signed a contract with the agency in December, 2009, for a matchmaking service.

The court ordered the matchmaking firm to pay Zhang 4 million Yuan after the millionaire appealed against the ruling of a lower court that ordered the agency to pay him 1.3 million yuan ($209,614), media reports said.

A report issued by an accounting firm proved in the court at first instance that the agency used nearly 5 million Yuan (806,211) to find a match for the man.
