Matchmaking or offering marriage between foreign nationals and Filipino women on Internet websites will be declared a crime under a bill seeking to amend the Anti-Mail Order Bride Law. Rep. Cinchona Cruz-Gonzales of Cibac party-list, author of House Bill 222, said that mail-order bride services are illegal in the Philippines under Republic Act 6955 or the Anti-Mail Order Bride Law of 1990. Cruz-Gonzales said mail-order bride services are now flourishing in different websites and have largely replaced traditional paper-based classifieds.
