Anna v dating scammer

This is another common scam used by Russian scammers.A Russian woman will start interacting you but tell you she cannot speak or understand English.

Typically, a man comes into contact with a scammer through an online dating agency.

The scammer will have photos showing a young and attractive woman though her profile may say she’s from America or England.

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.

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.

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.

This is a scam and you should never send money for it!
