Bharat Matrimony - Double charging for the same service
Members pay for matchmaking services on Bharatmatrimony.com.Without permission Bharatmatrimony posts members EXACT personal profiles on 40plusmatrimony.com and divorcematrimony.com.
Then they ask profiles of these other two services to pay for it. They claim that all three are different companies when they are in fact owned by the same company (Consim Info Pvt Ltd. This is run by Murugavel Janakiraman and the investors are Bessemer Venture Partners, Mayfield and Canaan Partners Technology.The site has customers mainly from India. A large percentage of these members is not internet savvy and many do not have credit cards.
The company takes disadvantage of this fact.
In India they also telemarket by phone and go door-to-door to get members for these 3 websites.They do not disclose that the 3 websites are owned by the same company and essentially offer the same service.
