Prevent Matrimonial Frauds with help of Akancha Srivastava. She addresses the big number of complaints she receives about frauds on Matrimonial frauds.
As many of you know, the profiles on dating/matrimonial sites are not always true. Very often even those people are not real! This leads to a lot of unhappiness & disappointment. People feel cheated, hurt. Its not a pleasant emotion at all.
It is our responsibility to check authenticity
Akancha believes that just like all social media platforms, even these match making sites are aggregators. While they do have checks for minimizing matrimonial frauds, its also our own responsibility to find out about the authenticity.
Never share personal details with unknown person
Never share any intimate details without knowing the person fully well, always share the profile with you trusted circle/ parents before you decide to take any final steps. Be especially careful of meetting anyone from these sites on your own alone. Always meet in public place, keeping a loved one informed. Get references of people they work with, tehir friend circle & double check.
It’s a responsibility we cannot shy away from.
Please watch the video. Stay aware, stay safe.

Objective of these workshops is to educate mindful use of technology. Its a preemptive measure of making sure the probabilities of crime are reduced. It is also an effort to inspire everyone to give back to the country with their own skills. The initiative has appointed its ambassadors & champions across the country to take forward this education at schools, colleges.
