To err is human. This should never be an excuse to get cheated. You can make a wrong choice or a mistake, but to fall for the victim to cheats is something that needs to be avoided. And marriage has become one of the easiest ways for agencies to entrap people and cheat them of their hard earned money.
Unlike a purchase of a product, marriage is something different – we look forward to sharing the rest of our life with someone and raising a family. A marriage is a dream that everyone wants to come true.
Unfortunately, there are rotten people who are hell-bent on destroying our dreams and taking our money along with it. Here is what I experienced at the hand of one agency. When it comes to choosing a partner, most people look for matrimonial sites and bureaus, and that is what I chose.
I came across an ad for Shubhmangal Matrimonial Services in Shahdara located at 1/352, Shriram Nagar, GT Road, Near UCO Bank, Shahdara, Delhi. I have to accept that they are devilishly clever and ingenious. If they could have used their intelligence in the right way, they would have been successful in a legitimate way.
I got in touch with Shubh Mangal Rishton Ki Dunia to avail their services. I instantly had a hunch that I was about to get swindled. The dilapidated condition of the house, on whose ground floor was their office in a makeshift room, and a sweet speaking tongue in cheek elderly person with glasses who identified himself as only Mr. Aggarwal.
I was asked to give personal details about myself, more of a profile. After I shared my profile, I was told that they would find a match for me and that I need not pay anything upfront. They then sent me photos of four profiles, without any additional information, I personally like two and when I sought details I was told that contact information would only be shared with members who paid a fee.
This is where the treacherous game started. They insisted on paying in cash. I wondered why would such an agency ask for cash in the world of Digital currency? The entire plot was about to reveal itself. I asked why cash? Mr. Aggarwal told me all the benefits of dealing in cash in today's world, and somehow I believed him.
I tried to remind them that they had initially offered the service with no fee or registration, but I was told that a fee was necessary for getting access to contact information. As I wanted to find out more about the profiles, I registered and paid the desired fee amount. My sole intention was to find out more about the suitability of the proposals, as photographs present only the appearance of individuals.
The moment I remitted the payment, I was told that my details will be shared with the profiles and that I would be contacted only if there was mutual like between both the parties. This was something that was exactly the opposite of what they had claimed when they demanded payment.
I was angered by this illogical registration process. They should have taken a fee from me only after verifying if the profiles were interested in me, or they should have shared contact details so that I could speak to them before either of us decide on the suitability.
The whole idea behind paying a hefty amount as fees were to get in touch with the profile members. And that is what they had also claimed, but they took a totally different stance, the moment I paid.
I realized later, that this was their modus operandi and that I was not the only one. They obviously had some stock photos of girls and boys and used that to entice people to make a payment. They preyed upon the emotions of people who were looking to settle down with a suitable partner.
Though I understand that I can become a laughing stock for people who read this, I am sure that I will be helping many others who may fall for this scam by Shubh Mangal Rishton Ki Duniya.
I do not want anyone to undergo the same experience that I had – I lost a lot of money, wasted my time and I ended up with a very dejected feeling of having been cheated. Stay away from Shubh Mangal Rishton Ki Duniya, it is a scam set up, established only for the purpose of swindling money.
