NRI men, divorced, widowed women are easily falling prey to matrimony frauds in the recent past said the Cyber Crime Police. In one of the recent cases, a 44-year-old divorced woman was cheated by a Nigerian on an online matrimonial portal after she had joined the online portal last year, after being separated from her husband, TOI reports. “Fraudsters have been targeting women, who are in the age group of 35 to 50 years, and are widowed, divorced or looking for a partner on online matrimonial portals,” the ACP explained. Not only women but NRI grooms too are falling in the trap of these community matrimony portals. In another case, a US-based man from Hyderabad was cheated of Rs 4 lakhs by a woman he wanted to marry after he met her on one of the online matrimony portals.
