Russian online dating website

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.

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

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.

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.

At this point she will set the victim up as her knight in shining armor, the only one who can help her.

She might just need money to pay her bills but will probably want desperately to come and visit him in his Western nation.

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.

With many people catching on to this scam, the scammers have “improvised” their story a little.

They do not ask for money for a ticket or visa but instead send you a scanned visa as “proof”.

Sometimes, they will even cite certain immigration requirements to sound more convincing.
