Dating scammers usa collegeville dating
There are many variations of online dating scams originating in Russia and Eastern Europe but they have in common a high emotional and financial cost to unsuspecting scam victims.
Typically, a man comes into contact with a scammer through an online dating agency.
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.
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.
They do not ask for money for a ticket or visa but instead send you a scanned visa as “proof”.
This is likely to be a scan of a fake or fabricated visa.
A scammer could be a man or woman operating solo, posing as an attractive young lady, or part of an organized scamming operation.
Such operations have been known to hire young Russian women to act as the voice on the other end of that romantic phone call.
This is a scam and you should never send money for it!
A Russian woman will start interacting you but tell you she cannot speak or understand English.
After some time, she will tell you she cannot continue communicating with you as she cannot afford to pay for the translation service anymore.
She might just need money to pay her bills but will probably want desperately to come and visit him in his Western nation.
She professes her love and gives instructions to send money through Western Union or Money Gram.
