- Never send money to a woman you don’t know. Especially if she asks for it. Respectable Russian and Eastern European women will never ask you for money. It is just not acceptable in Russian culture.
- Read her letters carefully. When you are writing her a letter, ask her questions and make sure she answers them. Many Russian scammers use pre-written letters and don’t bother reading what men write.
- If a Russian woman writes that she is looking for a husband abroad because all Russian men are abusive alcoholics, don’t believe her. She is either a scammer or is not very smart.
- If suddenly her mother/brother/sister/grandmother becomes “ill’ and “needs” an expensive surgery, be alert. She might not ask you for money directly, but hope that you will pity her and send money anyway.
- Many dating scams occur on free dating sites. Since anyone can register, it is simply a golden field of all sorts of scammers. If you decided to meet a woman through the internet, use legitimate marriage agencies instead.
- If she is too good to be true, she probably is. Don’t get me wrong, there are thousands of Russian women who are beautiful, educated, loving and caring. However if a woman you are corresponding with looks like a Victoria’s Secret model, is 30 years younger than you, is everything you said you wanted in your online profile and is in love with you after seeing your picture and reading 3 emails, be careful. Unless you look like Brad Pitt, of course…
