Russian dating scammer

Before you write to me asking about possible Russian dating scams, or post your question here on my site, here's the short answer: Below I'll discuss the categories of Russian dating scams and how they work is a good start to avoiding them, but you can actually avoid them without knowing very much about them by following a few simple guidelines.I'll summarize here: (1) Shop only on the reputable sites, and (2) "follow the money".

That includes dating scams — among the oldest and most common of online swindles.

That's a little frustrating to me because scams are so easy to avoid.

Far too many men become obsessed with determining if the woman with whom they are currently corresponding is "real" that their quest to find a partner never reaches the step of making a trip to meet REAL Russian/Ukrainian women.

Also, the same set of photos may be used under different names.

Most known Russian scams appear to be run by the same few groups of Russian scammers using different names and photos.
