Internet dating russian scams
Russian dating expert and owner of Elena’s Models Elena Petrova says thatmen using online dating sites regularly receive emails from ‘Russian women’ offering friendship, love and marriage.Most users simply disregard such emails but some people are curious and can be sucked in.The only real thing in the whole story is the money that a man sends to someone in Russia.
Source: scam typically works by the scammers placing a phony profile on Russian and Ukrainian online dating sites and international dating catalogs using fake or stolen pictures of attractive women from Ukraine and Russia.
Russian and Ukrainian dating scams take in tens of millions of dollars each year and most of the victims are men.
These scammers are ruthless people who are ripping people off by selling elaborate fantasy stories to unsuspecting men.
However, there have been occasions where the picture is the actual person when/if the scammer happens to be an attractive female.
They then contact a potential victim and lead the person into an online romantic relationship.
