Dating scams in china
Shu Xin, director of the China Marital Family Work Association and founder of Weiqing marriage counseling, says that, in Su's case, all the millions he spent on Zhai was entirely voluntary.Thus it would have been quite difficult, if not impossible, for him to sue her for fraud. And, most importantly, the most persuasive witness - Su himself - is now dead.Others said they were swindled out of the deposit they paid for properties and jewelry for their new spouses. For example, between 20, a divorced woman in rural Huainan, East China's Anhui Province, instructed her 14-year-old daughter to marry seven different men seven different times.However, only 25 cases were judged as marriage scams and ruled in the plaintiff's favor. The teenaged bride (with her mother's guidance) swindled 500,000 yuan from the men before finally being exposed by four of her ex-husbands who met online after one man got suspicious and checked his wife's phone. Many cases involve rushed marriage decisions, regretful couples and accusations that are difficult to prove.It also says relevant government organizations are pushing ahead with real-name registration for clients on online dating platforms.After Su's death, jiayuan.com, the matchmaking website he used to meet Zhai, released a statement acknowledging that both Su and Zhai were VIP members and that their personal profiles had been "verified."Such VIP services usually target wealthy clients such as Su, who must pay up to 20,000 yuan just for six matches.
After chatting for one month, the engineer finally asked Chen to "help him with his visa application," by using her property as a warrant.It was ruled a suicide by authorities, but some also consider it his final act of revenge.Just before his death, Su left digital suicide notes on social network Google Plus and Sina Weibo accusing his ex-wife, Zhai Xinxin, of draining his money.Eleven days after Su's death, new guidelines drafted by China's Communist Youth League, Ministry of Civil Affairs and the National Health and Family Planning Commission, were introduced to intensify efforts to clean up China's matchmaking service industry.The new regulations crack down on illegal practices often utilized by for-profit matchmaking sites, such as knowingly pairing users with hired men and women posing as attractive singletons.
