Russian scams on dating sites Asian xxx video chat
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.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.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”.While most Russian dating websites are genuine, a number of them are fake and their so-called members are not real either.
This ploy also relies on the stereotypical assumption that all Russian and Eastern European women want to move to or visit America, Canada, the UK or Australia which simply isn't the case.
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.
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.
