While most Russian dating websites are genuine, a number of them are fake and their so-called members are not real either.They will ask you for large amounts of money, promising to set you up with a beautiful Russian women but your money is as good as gone because the agency is a scam.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.
Just when you think everything is going smoothly, there is a last minute problem and they will request you to urgently send them some money, without which it will be impossible for them to make their trip.
The period from first contact to first cash request could be a few days or a few months but regardless how long you've "known" the person, a request for money is a scam.
Scammers operate from countries with low per capita income and even if a scam takes months to pay out it is worthwhile for them, even for just a few hundred dollars.
Her monthly salary is only a few hundred dollars, all Russian men are drunks and maybe her family died in a tragic accident or they are ill and in need of surgery.
Heart strings are pulled and victims are sucked in.
At this point she will set the victim up as her knight in shining armor, the only one who can help her.
