ALERT: Dowry Scams

Dowry Scam Alert.
We got some reports about people who has been scammed about dowry.

What is Dowry? Source: Wikipedia
A dowry is a transfer of parental property at the marriage of a daughter. Dowry contrasts with the related concepts of bride price and dower. While bride price or bride service is a payment by the groom or his family to the bride’s parents, dowry is the wealth transferred from the bride’s family to the groom or his family, ostensibly for the bride. Similarly, dower is the property settled on the bride herself, by the groom at the time of marriage, and which remains under her ownership and control.

How dowry works:
In some Asian, Arabic or Muslim countries, when the man of the groom wants to get married, he needs to give “dowry” to the family of the groom on the wedding day, this can be money, material things, gold or camels (this last is commonly in muslim countries).

How dowry scammers works:
A dowry scammer will ask you to send money through western union, moneygram or other money transfer service before marriage. Also some of these scammers wants too high dowry, a groom from a poor (asian) family, should get for example between 1000 and 3000 US Dollars dowry, while a groom who is descendant from very rich family or has a straight ties with the kingdom the dowry can be up to 100.000 US Dollars or much more higher. You give the dowry to the groom’s family on the wedding day and not earlier. NEVER SEND MONEY FOR THE DOWRY THROUGH SOME MONEY TRANSFER SERVICE SUCH AS WESTERN UNION, MONEYGRAM OR OTHER BECAUSE THEN THIS IS A 100% SCAM!!!.
