Russian dating scam photos
I did that, met a few, had a girlfriend from Germany for about a year, but I also received a couple interests from Russian women (which turned out to be scams). The final of the story was dramatic and hit pages of newspapers all over the world. Click here A short while ago I found the black list, shown here.
They intrigued me enough to make me wonder if I should look outside our country, Russia in particular..."In May 2001 Terry, an Australian man scammed by a gang of Internet con-artists, sent his story to Russian Bride Cyber Guide's Black List. Now radio and TV-stations are eager to talk to Terry but he is not keen to give interviews. No need saying that scammers can reach pretty much anybody, who is looking for a life partner online.
The scammer will later explain that she’s from Russia but couldn’t select it as an option on the dating site.
In the first few letters the scammer will say what a good woman she is and how hard life is in Russia.
Another source is in Lugansk and Donetsk (in spite of the war going over there, believe it or not! In most cases you can tell that the girl is a scammer just by looking at her profile. Most scammy profiles start with words "I the sociable girl", "I the cheerful girl", or whatever, with "am" omitted.
They are actually from Mari El, but just saying they are from Kazan.
Don't ask me why they are putting this in their profiles!!! Or maybe they use some absolutely weird translator that translates the phrase like that?
Or maybe they have some "profile writer" in their "staff" who writes it? There is nothing wrong with making mistakes when it is not your native language.
Typically, a man comes into contact with a scammer through an online dating agency.
The scammer will have photos showing a young and attractive woman though her profile may say she’s from America or England.
