Important Safety Advice

Pyar.org makes every possible attempt to keep this a safe site where you can find and make contact with a potential spouse.  However it is very important that you exercise common sense and bear in mind the following important safety advice:
  • People are not always what they claim to be. We have no way of verifying the details which people enter about themselves. The vast majority of people using the site are honest people who have provided an accurate description of themselves, but there are those who enter false information for their own reasons. Try to get independent references.
  • Do not give out personal contact details too early. You are strongly advised to maintain initial contact using only the messaging service of this site. Only when you are comfortable should you give out even your email address. Once you have given out your phone number or postal address you cannot take it back, so make absolutely sure that the person you are dealing with is not the sort of person who is going to be harassing you in future.
  • Always be polite. It is possible that you may receive an abusive message from somebody you have rejected, or who takes offence at the contents of your profile. DO NOT RESPOND. It will only make things worse. If this happens you should not delete the message but you should report it to us at info@pyar.org
  • If you arrange an initial meeting with somebody, make sure either that you have a guardian in attendance or that it is in a public place where no harm can come if they are not all that they have claimed.
  • Beware of people seeking marriage simply to obtain a foreign visa.
  • Be particularly cautious about profiles (especially female profiles) from Sierra Leone, Senegal, Nigeria and Gambia. Criminals have entered fake profiles from those countries in the hope of defrauding people on the site.
  • Occasionally people have used the site to send out fraudulent financial messages such as this one:
"It is my pleasure to contact you for your assistance which I  believe would be of great benefit to us. Though I have not met with you before but I believe one has to take a boldness in faith in surviving  sometimes in life. There is this huge amount of money Eighteen million U.S dollars($18,000,000.00) which my late father deposited with a security company as FAMILY VALUABLES AND TREASURES here in abidjan cote d'ivoire before he was assassinated by unknown persons.    Now I and my sister decided to invest these money in your country or anywhere safe enough outside Africa for security and political reasons. We want you to help us claim and retrieve these fund from the security company and transfer it into your personal account in your country for investment purposes on profitable ventures.  If you can be of an assistance to us we will be pleased to offer to you 15% Of the total fund. I await your soonest response. Please do contact me on my confidential e-mail on :   [removed]  Due to the present on going political crises in our country as most financial organizations and some banks are been vandalized and looted, the security company has informed us that they have cargoed all their consignments abroad. so presently our consignment has been transferred abroad for security purpose."
  • Another type of fraud involves starting a dialogue in a perfectly normal manner, asking about you and telling you about them. Once they have got your interest (typically, although not always, the profile is of a female who is very good looking) they will say that they are in another country (typically, but not always, Africa) and that they need some money for the air fare or for the visa to visit you in your country. By this stage you will probably have talked to them on the phone and will have built up a bit of a relationship with them. If you send the money, they will ask for some more on some other excuse. In any event you will never meet the person as it is a fraud. If you start a dialogue with someone from this site and they ask you for money for ANY reason, DO NOT GIVE IT. Contact us with the details, including the user ID.
  • A third type of fraud involves offering jobs, typically, although not always, in the hotel or cruise shipping businesses. They will offer to pay for you travel from India to the country where the job is (usually Canada) and to organise your visa for you. A surprisingly large number of you fall for this one, even though you should be extremely suspicious if you are getting job offers through a matrimonial site. IT IS FRAUD. Do not respond to these people.

These are common frauds. If you receive such a message please inform us immediately. In fact, if you receive any message concerning financial arrangements you should let us know.

We hope and expect that you will have no problems using this site, but if you do, please report it to us.
