On­line dat­ing web­sites face scru­tiny

China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
