Look Guys and Girls,

Its simple. When it seems to good to be true then it is.
This comment : "lets say for every 20 fake profiles you will come across one real person" is bang on. It does not only apply for shaadi.com. This is valid for any of those matrimonial sites. Bharatmatrimony as well!:)..Jeewansathi..you name it.They are mostly scams.I had one recent experience from someone supposedly called Meera Patel(from our favorite-shaadi.com). She said she was from NY Albany and currently on trip in Indonesia to take care of her foster mom called Mrs Bagley. Her mom and dad died in a car accident when she was 4.
I did my research and traced the originating location of the emails. They do play their game really well though, the emails sounded really genuine.Some of them came from NY ALBANY. Some from Nigeria.Some from UK when all this time she was supposed to be in Indonesia taking care of her foster mom. Then just today she asked me for money. Her foster mom is now dying and needs to do a renal transplant. Asked me for $8500. I told her I can only give her moral support:) I will just play along for a while..see how low they can stoop. Hope the foster mom does not come to haunt me when she dies:)
I am working on something to teach all of these scammers a lesson. Some really bad karma coming their way:)

Just follow these few rules..all you good people out there will be safe:
1. Google is your best friend. Google that person's id or anything they say . Do a proper research. In my case I simply googled-(Meera Patel shaadi.com).
2.Never ever give any money to anyone you meet on these sites in any circumstances. Let their whole family die:)
3. Track their IP. Again if you dont know how to its easy. Each email contains the source IP address. Once you extract it from the email you can find where the email originates from. For those of you who dont know how to again google it. Its easy.
4.For those of you innocent people who easily believe anything they are told.STOP. The world is not as good as you are. Plenty of bad people out there trying to rip you off .
5. Listen to that inner voice of yours. When your gut tells you something is fishy, then back off.
6. Check out the photos properly. Most of the fake profiles have model type pictures. The scammers steal these pictures from sites such as modelmayhem.
7. As soon as they ask for money. Then you know you are being ripped.Keep your money for you and your family...NOT for someone who you just have met on an online site.

Good luck all of you in finding a genuine person.
I am sure you work for a competitor company hence badmouthing Shaadi.com.. if not, then plz provide specific instance along with your complaint addressed to Shaadi.com customer service..

And you are their agent who is supporting/shielding them ?
shaddi.com is a scam! they have tons of fake profiles with pictures of pretty girls. the websites works in a devious way. they want to keep your interest in the website for all long as they can.as soon as you cancel your account expires you will bombarded with acceptance from profile you have send interest months ago. most of the fake profile you will come across are from USA. another sign you should look out for is profile with one image. these images are usually small in size. also in there defense for i have met a few good people, lets say for every 20 fake profiles you will come across one real person. i would not suggest this site to anyone.

good luck!

Hi

I have just joined the site... I could do with some unbiased reassurance that the site is okay, as they asked me for a photocopy of my passport WOWOWOW!!! big no-no!!!

the site otherwise seems okay, but the SEAL authentication smacks of a SCAM. the things they ask you for are SO very inappropriate and not needed to securely identify you. a debit card does fine, they already do they checks and pass the security checks onto shaadi, so the passport thing is either a SCAM or unnecessary.

all the checks for the seal are not needed, well perhaps the qualification one, although I don't have the documents as that was 14 years ago. birth certs are a no-no as you can get citizenship in another country with them as with the passport. the utility bills can open bank accounts. a long list of no-no's.

I would like to think this was Indian Innocence to the internet security protocols in identity but the passort/utilitybill/ birth cert. is BIG suspicion. I will be watching the next few months to see what happens.

biggest scam artist i have come across I curse them as i am out of $20, 000 USD!! to a fake man on this site!!
I agree. shaadi.com affiliate program is just a crap. I put their banner on my site having 2 million impressions per month and no sale. Then I decided to signup personally and pay them to see and even after signing up and paying it did not track any sale. When i have given all proofs to their support team then they stop replying me. This was bull . So please no one should signup for their affiliate program. We are just getting bad repute just due to these bad indians in market. I dont know when they will realize.
I had a bad experience with this Shaadi site. I was scammed by a guy of more than $50, 000. It turn out he had a slue of financial problems, claim to be US citizen(a lie), claim to be in Benin/Nigeria on business
where he was face with one problem after another and i like a fool sent him more than $50, 000.00 when I finally caought on. He has many profiles on Shaadi with different photos. His profiles are allalone_1960, allalone_10 (SH[protected] and SH38824573. His names he uses are Ismaila Waziri, Habib Waziri, Hakeem Waziri, Michael Stewart and Nahid. He said he is a Muslim, I am also a muslim, but ashamed how this guy swears by the Almighty Allah, he claims he prays 5 times a day and goes to the mosque regularly. He said he quite religious but I found out he is a total SCAM. I was vunerable when I answeed his profile ( i had just lost my child) and he preyed on my emotions. He uses various e-mail addresses,
ismaila.[protected]@gmail.com, [protected]@yahoo.co.uk, [protected]@financier.com. He pretended he has 2 sons schooling in England and that he is a widow. all are lies. He is a SCAM. Ladies look out e-mail me [protected]@optonline.net

Yes he is a bigger liar and also uses his name as Dr Raj Maneesh Kumar . He makes only VPN calls and the passport copy he shares is all fabricated don’t trust that ### at any cost . Now he is using mobile no - +447521782011/ +14422433924 . He has a lady who operates with him . He is a Nigerian and not any Indian . He ask you to transfer money to some bank accounts which are again a part of this game . He will ask to to HACK some bank accounts and transfer money to him . Pls pls don’t trust this cheat .
Beware ladies's reply, May 12, 2018
He is the same ### Kunal Joshi . He is still cheating women & robbing them . I will drop an email to you soon
I would like to continue further with this guy on Shaadi.com who has multiple names, Ismaila Waziri, Habib Waziri, Hakeem Waziri, Michael Stewart, i would like to rpvide his phone numbers. he clamied he was on a business trip in Benin, Africa and his phone number there was[protected]. When i finally told him I am going to the FBI and the American Embassy in Contou, Benin, Africa he stopped wrting or calling. I saw he put another profile on the Shaadi.com site (SH[protected]. I found out that he is in Malaysia because of the phone number[protected]. It seems that every one goes to Africa to do their "scam" work. After I he stopped calling or writing and found out he is a scam and that he is in Malaysia, Contou, Benin, Africa was flooded and had cholera. The government should go after this person and take away the more that $50, 000.00 he scammed me off while he was in Benin, Africa. The government of Benin, Africa should give my more thean $50, 000.00 to the flooded victims and sick victims. these scammers loot innocent people like me and rob the local people in Benin. The government in Benin should investigate and take away all the monies he scammed from victims whle in Benin, africa and give his people. again the phone number is[protected]. I am mad.
419 tax fees victim's reply, Mar 28, 2018
your the original person who ruined this site for everyone, you ### named sandy! the more then 50 grand US dollars you sent is the reason why these same '(Nigerians/Ghanaian(s))' will always own shaadi.com in any way, shape, or form you fool! You like an ### kept on shipping your own money, atleast ship someone else's money if your smart about it. jeez! no one even died in your family you loser! shaadi.com is flooded with ugly desperate girls like you that can be scammed at any moment of time (it's easy with the girls of shaadi.com to fool them). Why? because they always greedy, once they fall in love with the benefits of freeloading, that's the time to strike back for pay back against these hypocrite indian women! just keep rotting behind those mud walls ready to fall on you while you sleep behind them! the money will always go to the people who deserve it you fool!
Shaadi.com today asked for copy of my passport as a free member. I deleted my profile as this sounded very suspicious. I am in the UK. My email to them was

'I am not quite sure why you need proof of ID - what purpose does that serve? No payment has gone through nor any serious issues nor fraudulent activity. I would think its not justifiable what you are asking. How many customers do you request for proof of ID to 'authenticate' a profile and in what circumstances? My passport or license is available only to a UK official agency as a British citizen. You are outside those terms of reference... My passport/license is not your business except for purposes of payment in an official capacity. ... I have done nothing wrong.'
They responded they need to 'authenticate' a profile. I have never heard of a dating agency requiring a passport copy from free members to validate a profile. Looks like they want to sell the information to produce fake passports.
I just signed up with shaadi.com for a year I think on 2/18/2011 for one year for $189 after having an argument with my girlfriend.
I canceled my membership 2 days later and asked them for a refund.
NO CIGAR!!
Once they have your money forget it!!
I asked them to charge me for a month for using it for 2 days and refund the rest.
Again "sir this is against our regulations"
And no I did not meet my gf through them, I have known her for a year and a half
I have put it in dispute with my credit card company
I'll let you know what happens
So BEAWARE
I found another Meera Patel, probably her sister Simran Mittal - "I have been very busy here abroad taking care of my foster mother.I hope you understand! My name is Simran Mittal, Mittal is my fathers name and mine in Simran" from simran58 at hotmail.com

Thanks for the info mate, so watch out for these crooks.
User Neel979 has posted something above, i had face the same thing, but only name and age of her parents got changed. Now the name she is using is Sonal Williams, Age when her parents were dead is 12 and all the other things are same as said by neel same indonesia, foster mom, kidney transplant.. etc.
Hey Neel thanks fo the help man, i appreciate it.
Right now she removed her profile, earlier it was with name NATA later she removed it when we started talking, 'She might would have thought that she already have a bakhra in hand'

I never expected this kind of stuff to happen to me. so all of you please be very careful.
I thought its better to write some more on this.
Please see my first post.
Name is Sonal williams and she is from Lakewood CA and says she is originally from Arlington TX, and grew up in Tarrant County TX but right now am presently in Indonesia to see my foster mom who has a renal failure, and needs a transplant to be fine.
He/She talks very nicely, You should think how in this world a girl like her still exists.
She asked me 1500 dollars.
But this website and Neel979's message helped me a lot.
One more time guys and girls, be very careful.
I am currently in talk with meera, rima and all the girls mentioned here. This time the scammed is from shepparton Australia and in one email she is deeply in love with me and wants to have kids. Time to teach this [censored]ets some lessons

Thanks for posting guys and gals. Really helps.

Currently the person is rima Patel with email [protected]@consultant.com am she has her foster mom in Indonesia too. Parents this time died in Manchester when she was 4

Watch out for Manish Kalyan who is from California!!!
internet fraud - Shaadi.com website, They create fraud profile with nice girl pics and send interest to everyone, i replied (without knowing anything) then asked to get membership to contact that person, then i paid amount to get membership, and i found finally, the pic is model pic, i want to make complaint detailly...

They called several times, before i paid the amount. Now, i am requesting to give me a call, they didn't reply, I totally, pissed off of their website and service.
My honest request, Please don't be like me... They are totally cheaters, fraud, create fake profile to earn money...

Man shaadi.com sucks!!! Its one thing to run a business by posting fake profiles, but using emotions to play with people's heart is just messed up. They better start removing these fake profiles before someone brings the whole website to a halt. Greedy mofo's want you to stay on their website longer? What the [censored] happened to the money I already paid you as*holes?? Shaadi.com, stop messing around before you end up paying a higher price.!!
i receive too many emails that say "Exclusive Offer" Limited time offer
very cheap site!!!
shaadi.com is a bad place to find a partner. got in contact with drpassi( SH20282881 just exchanged couple of emails. he thinks (says) ppl don't have family(traditional) values in US. after contacting found his full name, ran his name search in google, found his myspace ID, ran search of myspace id in google and this guy is on many american dating websites (u name it ..datehookup, personals and couple more), looking for short term relationships and he calls himself deep rooted ethical guy.lol(yea rite!!). so of course dropped interest after 2 emails. be careful while looking for partner .
I met a girl, names Natasha Williams

1) Indonesia
2) Foster mom
3) Renal transplant
4) US citizen
5) Parents died, when youung
6) need $1500 for drugs
