Money scams on dating sites

01 Jan

This is another common scam used by Russian scammers.

A Russian woman will start interacting you but tell you she cannot speak or understand English.

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.

This is likely to be a scan of a fake or fabricated visa.

At this point, they either expect you to offer to pay for the service or even ask you if you will be willing to pay for the service so you can continue your relationship.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.Russian dating sites are very popular and while many men have met genuine, loving Russian women, unfortunately sometimes one encounters scammers as well.There are many variations of online dating scams originating in Russia and Eastern Europe but they have in common a high emotional and financial cost to unsuspecting scam victims.
