your comments about visas to the USA are not quite correct, plus you've assumed, as usual, that the US is the only country anyone would ever want to emigrate to. You should also realise that Russia is not as depressed economically as it was 10-15 years ago, so Russian girls are not looking to leave the country like they were. In fact, I reckon that in another 10 years Russia will have overtaken quite a few Western countries economically.

The scammers play on Western ignorance of Russia and its current situation.

It's true that a single Russian girl with no children would find it almost impossible to get a tourist visa to either North America or Europe (a female Russian tourist agent friend from Samara confirmed that to me)....but theoretically it's possible if she has enough money. She has to book tickets and hotels in advance (ie a tour) and must have a full-time job in Russia to go back to, and she has to convince immigration that she has enough funds for the trip, and that she won't overstay her visa. Ergo...rich Russians especially from Moscow (close to national embassies) with roots/businesses/children in Russia have no trouble at all getting visas to anywhere in the world they like.

Otherwise you can sponsor her visa, which I've done on 2 occasions myself. You don't need to get married, that's bulls*** (you're thinking of residency), but you do have to provide a few papers, a letter of invitation, a copy of your passport, sponsor's application form etcetc....plus the girl still needs tickets paid in advance of getting the visa.

This makes you responsible for her during her stay in the USA (or Europe), ie the INS would be much likely to let her in (assuming that you're a respectable guy and that you have money yourself). But it would cost you over 2000 bucks to pay for her tickets, visa and travel to moscow, medical insurance, visa photos etcetc.

And when push comes to shove, the conventional way to meet and spend time to with a Russian girl (there are lots of nice real ones) is to travel to Russia and meet her in her home city.

Sure some criminal-minded individuals would have turned on their radar-detectors. That doesn't stop unmarked patrolmen doing their job, frequently turning off their radar guns. This means a criminal has to work hard.

Ordinary folks alert with their cell phones any suspicious activity, so criminal doesn't know who's watching.

You could for example post scammers's e-mail headers, after removing your personal info. [On this site you could search for header listing procedure, or ask]

You could draw the attention of your friends to this site pro-actively so they don't fall victim.

Depending on your time and area of interest, you could come up with your own ideas. E.g. You could start a thread listing scammers' passport numbers to aid in google search. Since in drod's thread various dating scammers gives the passports in pivyure form, text searching with google for fraudster passport numbers will miss it . [Such list can make scammers' life hard, they'll have to steal more passports with new numbers, more chances of them getting busted.]

Just think in what ways you can make their lives hard.

And to inspire you, a reproduction.

...and so my fellow Americans, Ask not what the scammer can do to you. Ask what you can do to the scammer!

this is for reesesyarden, i have been tracking this scammer for a while now... it does take them a while but eventually they do ask for money. and the funny thing is that they have used this email before word for word.and that picture that you uploaded i have got that one too.

this is the email..............

i am so glad to see that we are almost near our goal,and our meeting wait for us.
I think I will call you from airport before my flight.
You know I booked tickets on Saturday flight and I will buy them before my intervew.
People from embassy must be sure that I am not going to stay illegally, so I need to buy roundtrip
tickets (with returning date).
I wanted to ask you about electronic tickets but they tell that
I can't use because it is their businees to arrange all travel details and they have some extra
money from all the things,
you see it is just business.I think that you will be able to help me because I don't know anybody
here and only you are my hope now,
I think everything in your hands and I believe that you will not leave me here alone.please borrow some money.
I am sure I will be able to return all your money back after a few weeks,I will get salary and I
will collect the sum I own from you.
To be fair I am not sure I know what to say because I hate to ask but now I have no different way, you see.
Please help me it is only money and much more important if we will meet in person I will do my
best, you won`t be disappoined.
I see that it sounds a little crazy but I can't believe that in the worst case I have to return
home,they all will
laugh at me.I think it rests with you to decide and I feel that
you will help me because you are kind.
I have about 300 US dollars yet and I think I need about 950 US
dollars from your side with all travel needs and living here till my flight!
(I had 1150 dollars, but flight to moscow, opening visa, medical insurance and all travel needs costed about
800 dollars).
For truth I didn`t expect I will need to buy roundtrip tickets, but now I see that its a very strict rule.
If everything will be all right between us I can stay with you longer than three months,maximum I
can stay about 6 months for first time!
We should change only the date of my returning flight.and if you don't like me I will live in rent room and won't bother you
and money is money I will return it back in any case.I so much hope that you will help me.
My mother gave me all she had.
Thank you in advance. Maybe i look like the poor outsider but I do hope you understand my position
because it is always there is anybody who needs the help.
I will call you from airport and I will wait for you there as
long as you need,I mean if you need any time to arrive in airport.it is not problem for me to wait
because I know that it is the end of
my trip and I have time to improve my condition(some perfume)after long jorney.
I want you to see me in good shape!
Kiss you and do hope to kiss you in person so soon. We need to do it pretty fast,you know I ordered
all my documents in advance and
you see everything is ready so fast I need only your help because
we have no a lot of time till my intervew,
if everything will be all right I will be on this flight!
They have told me that you could make a transfer by Western Union. The manager from the bank
explained to me how system works.
All you need is my name and my surname and address to put on their list. Once you do this, I'll be
able to pickup the money
in any local Western Unuion office in Moscow.
My address here (the room i am renting)
Country : Russia,
City : Moscow,
Address : Lesnaya street 28-33
post code (zip) : 811690
Full name Svetlana Wolkova (right writting in English)
After it please write me money transfer control number and I will go to nearest office of western
union with my identification (passport).
Honey I am so happy that we will be together in a few days and I have so many different dreams
about us and our first kiss and .....some of my dreams are
so brave i will tell you later when we meet I prefer to say such things in person and I am sure we
will have a lot of fun.
I'm sure we will like each other and we can probably stay together forever! I will prolong my visa
or apply for a green card!
Sorry my mother is paying for the education of my brother, they helped
me as much as they could.
OK! Everybody has difficulties in it's life! You know maybe women in Russia (and me too!) are not
that world oriented...
I don't know how to explain... I've never made any trips abroad... I don't have such experience.
I come from a small city. I'm not a feminist girl, I'm ready to listen to my man and do everything
he tells me. Maybe I'm
too old traditioned? I don't know... I'm sure you will help me and we will meet each other and have
a great time together!
When I come to you I will listen to your advises and I will do everything you tell me! You are such
good man! Svetlana with great hope and many kisses!

My friend...I think we all have gotten the same e-mail, word for word. And same thing with the pictures. For example, I got a e-mail from a girl (Ekaterina) and when I looked her information up on google (what a life saver), there was a picture that she sent me with a guys name...only thing is that I got the same picture, only my name was there. So, I think we all have been there.

I to have had emails from Olga, she is very good. I corresponded with her for about 2 weeks. She says she worked as a Nurse in Bugulma, living with her parents. She kept mentioning her friend Marina. The letters posted on this site are exactly the same as mine, except for my name. I consider myself very lucky, she is dangerous. She gets into your head. Thanks everybody. I didnt send money, or anything she gave her mobile number, I tried calling no answer.

Eddie from Sweden  
To any newcomers who find their way to this thread. PLEASE READ THIS!

SOME GENERAL INFO ABOUT RUSSIAN GIRLS AND RUSSIAN DATING SCAMMERS:

80-90% of Russian dating scammers are men, mostly working in small gangs. It's virtually guaranteed that the girls in the pics aren't involved because the scammers steal pics from the internet or pay unsuspecting friends for a photo shoot, or buy and exchange photo sets on scammer websites. They use form mails and spam programs on automatic reply, very often the BAT!, which can personalize small parts of each letter. They don't even read your letters until after the money letter because they don't have time, ie because they're scamming, or trying to scam, as many guys as possible at the same time.....you can write any crap in your replies before that and they won't react, they're only interested when they're curious to know if you've taken the bait.

So...if several or more of the following criteria apply to your Boris (the beautiful Russian 'girl' that is supposedly writing to you), resist the temptation to help 'the poor girl' by sending her money. You're really writing to a sleazy guy sitting in a smoky room in Yoshkar Ola, Mari-El Republic, with a bunch of other sleazy guys spamming indiscriminately on laptops.

# 'girl' writes to you first on a dating site...especially a free one (or an email appears out of nowhere in your mailbox). Real Russian girls are rarely so bold as to write to you first. (unless you're obviously very attractive or rich :). They might reply to your mails, but they rarely write first. It's the man who should do the chasing. Plus if they're looking for a partner, they generally prefer him to be Russian speaking and live in Russia. Much more convenient!
# girl's much too young for you (or too good to be true/looks like a model/porno star)....although I have noticed a recent tendency for some scammers to use photos of slightly 'less attractive' girls.
# girl has some far-fetched excuses for you not visiting her in Russia (criminal city, not the Russian custom, terrorism, it's her dream to come to your country, etc). ALL BULLSHIT!! Actually, the normal way to meet a Russian girl is to visit her in her city first!
# scammers rarely have children, but most of the real Russian women I've ever met on the Internet did. (except for Moscow career girls)
# photos are too revealing (can't be a respectable girl). Respectability is very important to most Russian women (especially Moscow career girls). Think with your brain!
# most of the pics are old and a little bit faded with a curiously grainy quality that soon becomes easy to recognise (overuse?). A serious girl who's looking for a partner, would save up and go to a professional to have a studio set done, and/or borrow a digicam at least (dates should also be on the photos you receive). My fiancée did it. Russian girls aren't all that poor anymore, and if they seriously want to leave Russia, they know that posting sleazy pics will only attract cheap guys.
# girl claims not to have a mobile phone. Very unlikely!!! fer f***'s sake.....do you know a single girl without a mobile phone? Even poor Russian girls can't do without one, they're much cheaper than in Europe and a megafon telephone card doesn't cost that much either. You should be able to call her when you want. On the other hand, not having a landline or a desktop/laptop is very common.
# very long rambling/ecstatic form letters with a strange format, punctation and layout written in scamlish. (world's worst Babelfish copy)
# writes long letters everyday in English. How does she have time to write those long letters if she's working? (And if she doesn't have a job, how can she afford a computer + internet?) Most Russians outside Moscow can hardly speak a word of English anyway. And what's the point of finding a girl you can't communicate with, at least on a basic level? + if she can't speak English, why does she have a non-cyrillic email account?
# doesn't answer direct questions (sometimes factual mistakes in the letter)
# falls in 'love' very quickly. Don't let your ego or loneliness pull the wool over your eyes. She doesn't know you. You could be an axe murderer for all she knows. Russian TV is full of documentaries about Russian girls who have emigrated and got murdered, abandoned, etcetc.
# uses a proxy server to hide his/her location, ie a SOCKS server / GPRS Internet. if you can't trace 'her' IP, it's 100% scam. If she uses gmail, be suspicious too cos you won't be able to trace the IP. Hotmail and yahoo are acceptable if she'll chat with you on messenger.

MOST IMPORTANT...if you get this far:
# wants money for a 'visa' and/or maybe tickets, but IT'S VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR A SINGLE RUSSIAN GIRL TO GET A TOURIST VISA TO A WESTERN COUNTRY! She can get a sponsored visa with your help, but then she needs a personal letter of invitation from you, a copy of your passport, a proof of your residence in your home country, a completed sponsor's application form (also from you)....not including the documents that she has to fill in herself. All of these she has to drop off at your national embassy in Moscow WITH PREPAID TICKETS and wait 10 working days. These are the rules for the Schengen countries...the USA and Canada are almost as complicated. Anyway, a normal tourist visa + travel costs + hotel rooms would set her back 2000+ US dollars for a trip to the US. She should be asking you for a lot of money! Why should it be so easy for a gorgeous sexy girl just to jump on a plane and fall into bed with you? Be realistic.
NB...you should check your national embassy website in Moscow for visa prices and procedures.

There are a few scammers that are more patient and professional. There are even a few real girls scamming, and professional gold-diggers. One or two (mostly in the Ukraine) are not even afraid to use their true identities. These scammers are harder to spot.

But a ground rule is: if you are looking for a Russian wife/partner, you must be prepared to travel to Russia to meet her. And if she turns out to be a professional gold-digger, which has never happened to me personally or anyone I know, you should try to be philosophical and treat it as an exotic trip to a foreign country, have fun anyway, and try not to waste too much money on her.

There are actually hundreds of perfectly nice Russian girls in Russia but you have to go and get them. Chercher la femme.

Trust me its a scam. Wait until she has asked for money. At first it will only be a small amount like $500.00. Then she she will ask for more all the the time she is telling you of much she loves you. Then if you don't send it she she will be upset and tell you how much she has cried and that you broke her heart. DUDE TRUST ME!!!!! Its a scam.

Dagnabbit! It surely good to see that Olga is out in the OPEN!

I think that this is quite good to know and thanks to everyone who has been honest with their information, this scammer could be stopped... I really hope so.

Anywayz, I was wondering what the potential danger of Olga would be. Is she good as a scammer or is she just some 'see-through'? Just wondering...
