Fraud And Scam Warning
The site specifically and emphatically warns members never to send money to anyone that they meet on the site.
A very small number of profiles on this site may not be genuine and may belong to scammers that may manage to slip through our extensive filters and pose as people who they are not.
The site has no way of determining the validity of any communication that you receive from another member or the validity of the person behind such communication. We believe that these are few in numbers,
but the damage they can cause may be enormous. These scammers will typically pose as an attractive woman or man.
They will initiate contact with other members and will at some point during the interaction request money from the other person.
This could be a request in the form of a loan, assistance for food, assistance for medical treatment,
assistance to cover travel expenses to visit that member or assistance to smuggle a fortune out of a particular country.
The list is endless.
The bottom line is that we are warning our members to never send any money to anyone that they meet on this site for any reason whatsoever.
Chances are 100% that the sending member will be defrauded of that money and will become another unhappy fraud victim.
It is a violation of site policy to solicit money from or to send money to any member on the site.
It is YOUR responsibility to report any member who asks you for any payment by using the report member feature on their profile.

Limit On Number Of Messages

Bandimu.lk reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to increase or to decrease the number of daily permitted emails.
Unpredictability Of Messages And Replies
Some members that you send a message to may not respond to your email message. Although this can be quite frustrating, it could be due to a number of factors. The member you are trying to reach may be talking to other members and is not interested in starting something new. The member may also elect not to respond to you because they are not interested in your profile or they do not see a picture in your profile.
A refund can NOT be given on the basis of members choosing not to correspond with you. Reasons for members failing to contact you include: poorly written profile, personal preferences and wants do not match yours, your profile may not be appealing to others, your personal circumstances may mean your profile is not of interest to others etc. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but in all such occasions, you CANNOT be refunded.
It is YOUR responsibility to communicate with members in a polite, respectful manner.
