Yesterday we informed you about Icelandic government promising to give any immigrants who would end up marrying their beautiful ladies. Having posted that we received quite a lot of comments and contributions; if you missed that you can read here; Because Of The Lack Of Men, Iceland Gives $5,000 Per Month To Immigrants Who Marry Icelandic Women. Today we can confirm to you through our thorough research that the widely spread article by a website called ‘The Spirit Whispers’ is a hoax.

Iceland’s Foreign Ministry has received dozens of enquiries from men interested in taking up the Icelandic government’s offer of $5,000 to marry an Icelandic woman and make up for the lack of men in the country.

Unfortunately for the interested gentlemen, news of the exciting offer is a not-so-elaborate hoax posted on a website called ‘The Spirit Whispers’.

“Because of the high proportion of females than males have resorted government of that country to the solution is to grant $ 5,000 per month per immigrant marries Icelandic,”.

Priority apparently goes to men from North Africa, but all those “interested in this offer” were encouraged to leave a comment under the article.

Despite the exceedingly questionable nature of the posting, dozens of men have reportedly contacted Iceland’s Foreign Ministry to get more information on this too-good-be-true offer.

Every enquiry has been personally answered – obviously to the effect that the piece is a complete hoax and that there is absolutely no initiative in place to pay foreign men to come to Iceland and marry local women.
