Tips of dating
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.
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”.
If you are seeing a Russian woman and are keen on meeting her, it is always wiser for you to go visit them instead of inviting them to visit you.
This way you can avoid losing money through a scam and a traditional Russian woman would probably prefer it if the man made the effort to come visit her.
