Punjabi family scammed by Canadian Fake bride

Topic: Punjabi Affairs & Politics

The scams coming from Canada and the UK are becoming a sad joke on innocent but naive people of Punjab desirous to leave for abroad at any cost.

Few months ago a Punjabi Jat Sikh woman from Australia was caught after she ripped half dozen families in a well planned scam. Punjabis tend to marry among same castes and they believe that should be enough to qualify. The same is now being repeated by many men and women from Punjabi people settled in other countries. The news has spread so wildly that any future cases may be treated with serious implications for the fraudusters. They may lose their freedom and probably will be serving jail time. A young man in Ludhhiana, Punjab thought he'd found his ticket to the good life abroad with an NRI wife, except that things didn't quite turn out the way he thought. Jagrup received a wedding proposal from a girl who was a Canadian citizen, and the wedding plans were quickly finalised. ..more..

But instead of the bride it was the police who arrived, saying the bride and her relatives were all frauds and were placed under arrest. That was not all. Before the marriage the bride's supposed relatives had demanded Rs 20 lakh from him, of which he had only managed to pay Rs 11 lakh, that too after taking a loan.

The remaining Rs 9 lakh were to be paid after he got his visa. In Punjab it's common for people to be duped by frauds promising them that elusive foreign visa, and as long as the craze to settle abroad continues, so will frauds like these.

This is a shame on Punjabi community specially the one in Canada, where cases of fraudulent marriages are becoming frequent. The Canadian authorities have arrested several people in recent times that showed fake marriages to get immigration documents. Many cases of a sister marrying a brother etc. have been registered. In the US a few families were arrested recently for similar unlawful activity. There have been an arrest of a whole gang comprised of Pakistani Muslim Punjabis in the UK last month that ran a scam to dupe innocent Pakistanis aspiring to migrate

Sad stuff this worlds coming tooo...

puh-lease. Canadians aren't the only one's scamming people in india. it just so happens that it was a Canadian woman that was caught this time.

these scams wouldn't be working if there wasn't an overwhelming urge to leave Punjab. maybe they should be working on improving the lives of people in Punjab instead of just working on making sure people don't get scammed. if people didn't want to leave Punjab, we probably wouldn't have half the cons goin on that we do now.

ugh...

^look at how angry these Canadians get... watch out they may unleash the Mounte Horde on the World :twisted: . lol

But seriously I agree with you, they do need to make the situation better in Punjab, in fact all of India could use the help. The biggest problem in my view over there is the high level of corruption. All about the benjamins there (Like that over here too, but it has to be realized if you better your country then everyone's wealth grows; if you're corrupt then just yours..)
