Fraudsters create fake profiles on leading matrimonial websites for cheating.If there is any demand for the transfer of funds, cross verify the genuineness of the person.
HOW DO WE MITIGATE IT?
Create profiles only on a registered matrimonial site. Verify educational qualification and job description by calling up educational institutes or employer. If you are getting married, Instead of taking the decision on your own, it’s better to involve family members. Visit the person’s house and meet his/her parents & relatives not once but a number of times. Invite them to your house as well. Do a lot of background verification about the interested person.
NEVER REVEAL YOUR BANK ACCOUNT INFORMATION
Keep your username and password safe. Remember, no one from any trusted service will ever ask you for the same. For your safety, it’s recommended that you change the password regularly.
Please commit to marriage only after face-to-face meetings, especially after meeting the prospective groom or bride’s parents/relatives.Visit their place of work. Do a thorough personal reference check.You may also want to look at their social media profiles.If the person is reluctant to share workplace or job details or meet in person along with parents, you should be cautious.
