Dating scams russia ukraine
Choose a reputable dating service or agency in order to avoid being scammed this way.You come across a profile of a young, attractive woman on an online dating site or maybe she contacts you.
They do not ask for money for a ticket or visa but instead send you a scanned visa as “proof”.Such operations have been known to hire young Russian women to act as the voice on the other end of that romantic phone call.After taking the time to get to know you, she says she's coming to visit you or wants to move to your country.She professes her love and gives instructions to send money through Western Union or Money Gram.This is a broad example of Russian online dating scams.After some time, she will tell you she cannot continue communicating with you as she cannot afford to pay for the translation service anymore.
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.
Sometimes, they will even cite certain immigration requirements to sound more convincing.
But rest assured, once you send that money that is the last you will hear from her.
Scammers use services like Western Union because it is all but impossible to track the recipient of the money which can be picked up anywhere in the world.
A scammer could be a man or woman operating solo, posing as an attractive young lady, or part of an organized scamming operation.
At this point she will set the victim up as her knight in shining armor, the only one who can help her.
