According to Emirates 24/7, A woman matchmaker in Dubai has been nabbed after she allegedly duped several girls and families of cash.
She posted ads on BlackBerry service calling for girls and families looking for eligible men.
She was caught when one of her compatriots sought her alleged service. Her client had forwarded her the requirements, and she promptly replied saying she has found her a suitable partner. However, in order to complete the formalities, the client had to pay her a particular amount.
The client was all set to transfer the money, when she suspected something fishy and investigated her credentials, only to discover that she was a fraud.
The Dubai Attorney General’s office has urged residents to be wary of such fraudsters, especially after such cases have become common now that social media sites are a popular tool.
