Online dating websites face scrutiny
China’s Internet watchdog will target dating websites and other online match-making sites to combat fraud.
Fraud on dating websites has become a public nuisance to millions of users, especially young people, who use such services, said the Cyberspace Administration of China in a statement.
The campaign lists fraud rings, prostitution and service providers’ fraudulent practices as major targets. Dating websites must enforce online realname registration and accounts failing to register with real names must be closed.
