SOME GENERAL INFO ABOUT RUSSIAN GIRLS, AND HOW TO SPOT RUSSIAN DATING SCAMMERS:
The vast majority of Russian dating scammers are actually men, mostly working in small gangs in or around Yoshkar Ola, in Mari El republic, sometimes in Chuvashia. It's virtually guaranteed that the girls in these scam pics aren't involved because the scammers steal their pics from the net or pay unsuspecting friends for them, or buy and exchange them on scammer websites. (Once a scammer even admitted to me that he stole all his pics from army-of-brides.com and mamba.ru ).
Most scammers are VERY lazy and looking for quick cash. They use email extractor programs to get your mail addresses:
(if you don't have a profile on a dating site, that is), and copied form mails and spam programs on automatic reply, very often the BAT!, which can personalize small parts of each letter. They mostly won't 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 they can (economies of scale).....and also because they're semi-literate losers who can't speak much English anyway. IN OTHER WORDS, you can write any crap in your replies and they won't react, they're only interested when they're curious to know if you've taken the bait after the money letter. A girl is only involved either occasionally to phone a guy up, especially if he's suspicious, or to pick up the loot at Western Union, with a false ID of course!
More recently, the majority of Russian scammers have started using proxy servers or forged IPs to hide their locations so ALL YOU REALLY NEED TO DO IS TRACE THEIR IP ADDRESS!
So....if several or more of the following scam signs 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 Russian guy sitting in a smoky room in Yoshkar Ola, 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 will often reply to your mails, but rarely take the initiative. It's the man who does the chasing in Russia. Plus, if they're looking for a partner, they generally prefer him to be Russian speaking and live in Russia. Much more convenient!
# doesn't answer direct questions (sometimes factual mistakes in the letter). Her replies should be exactly that...replies...however short they are.
# 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 as well.
# 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. Russian TV is full of documentaries about Russian girls who have emigrated and got murdered, abandoned, etcetc. They should usually want to meet you first before they gallivant off to your country.
# scammers rarely have children, but most of the real Russian women I've ever met on the internet did (except for Moscow career girls). It's often the reason that they're looking for a partner.
# photos are too revealing (can't be a respectable girl). Respectability is very important to most Russian women (especially Moscow career girls). They're hardly likely to send a half-naked photo to a virtual stranger on the internet. Think about it!
# most of the pics are old and a little bit faded with a curiously grainy quality that soon becomes quite easy to recognise (overuse?). Again a scammer admitted to me that low-quality photos are a key factor in his scamming. I found this curious because a serious Russian girl who's looking for a partner very often saves up and goes to a professional to have a studio set done (often corny ones posing with a chair etc), and/or borrows 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 cheap 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 whenever 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 translation)
# 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 connection? Even Internet cafés are relatively expensive in Russia. Anyway, most Russians outside Moscow can hardly speak a word of English. (What's the point of finding a girl you can't communicate with, at least on a basic level?) PLUS.. if she can't speak English, why does she have a non-cyrillic email account like gmail or yahoo? Most real Russians use mail.ru, yandex.ru or inbox.ru....though hotmail and yahoo are acceptable if she'll chat with you on messenger (preferably with a webcam).
# falls in 'love' very quickly. Don't let your ego, kind heart, loneliness or lust pull the wool over your eyes. She doesn't really know you. You could be an axe murderer for all she knows. As I mentioned, 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.
THE FIRST THING YOU SHOULD DO IS TRACE HER IP ADDRESS. In fact, it's the only thing you need to do really.
MOST IMPORTANT...if you get this far:
# she asks for money for a tourist 'visa' and/or maybe tickets, ignoring the fact that IT'S VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR A SINGLE, POOR RUSSIAN GIRL TO GET A TOURIST VISA TO A WESTERN COUNTRY!
Most Russian girls outside Moscow and St Petersburg are quite poor, and immigration control would consider them an overstay risk. They would never let be let into your country without a healthy bank account.
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. She also needs a job in Russia, a letter from her employer and insurance. All of these documents she has to drop off at your national embassy in Moscow WITH PREPAID TICKETS and wait about 10 working days. These are the rules for the Schengen countries anyway...the USA and Canada are almost as, if not more, 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 Russian girl just to jump on a plane and fall into bed with you? Anyway, no respectable Russian girl would ask directly for money, but might accept some if you insisted.
NB...you should check your national embassy website in Moscow for visa prices and procedures.
There are many variations on the scams, some quite slight. Some scammers claim to have a visa already and need money for tickets, a last-minute medical examination, etcetc. Some claim that their mother needs an operation, etcetc. A few more patient and professional scammers will take months before they hit you with the money letter (though if you follow my tips, you should be able to spot the scammers before then). There are even a few real girls scamming, and professional gold-diggers (mostly in the Ukraine). One or two of them are very bold, and not even afraid to use their true identities. These scammers are harder to spot, and there is no easy way to identify them, all you can do is use your instincts and common sense, and DO YOUR HOMEWORK!
and, of course, a ground rule is: DON'T SEND MONEY...unless you're 100% sure she's real.
Another ground rule: if you are looking for a Russian wife/partner, you must be prepared to travel to Russia to meet her. You also need to behave generously towards her; after all, you need to prove that you can support here (and her kids) if she migrates to your country. But if she turns out to be a professional gold-digger, which has never happened to me personally or anyone I know (but I know it does happen), 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 be prepared to go and get them. Chercher la femme. It certainly worked for me.

I have been receiving emails from a girl in kalachinsk. She has been sending me pictures, gave me her address at home and where she attends the university in omsk, and even sent photos of her parents. She says she is working on getting a travel visa with her own money and would like to come see me in my hometown and if I would be available to see her. Of course if this is all true I would see her. She hasn't asked for money, actually she avoids that topic, and I do have her phone number and we have talked. I hope this is not some elaborate scam...

this is the same scam used by many . she will ask later when she gets robbed and looses her visa and plane tickets . she will ask for money via western union or to a credit card bank . All in all they want an easy way to get the cash and not have to show ID or raise any questions !

I recieved an email in singles.net where I am a free member. This is the email >>>
Location: Freehold, NJ, United States
Date: Wednesday 12th of December
Hi!!!!!!!!! How is it going? I want to talk to you. Reply to me at email@example.com . Will email you back with more info and pics I will not reply through website. Use my personal email only
This was the total email.
On this dating site you may send emails to paying members only if you are a free member. Only paying memebers are able to send emails to non paying members of the site. So this must be a paying member.
I searched for profiles on the yahoo name and came up with no such member. Which shows just how low an IQ these scamming fools are. So I notified te person that she gave me a bad address, thru singles.net. I am waiting for the excuse she will come up with. I am so fucking annoyed by these nigerian and all the other scammers, the lottery bullshit, the Money in the bank left by rich relative and you get a large prtion if you give a bank account number or send good faith deposit. I have recieved probably over 100 different versions of attempts. Most of the time I respond with a letter telling them how fucking low IQ and how they degrade the whole country and race from which they have been concieved. How they have even embarrassed thier own Momma's, and that they should spend as much energy trying to make an honest living. They would be rich if they put thier energy to good use (or at least not quite as annoyying to me). The sewers from which they crawl are even too good for these types. We need to bomb them off the face of this earth, just as soon as we get an extra nuclear device. Dont let one of the scam attempts go unresponded to. Tell them about thier low life fucken, wasted space on earth selfs, so they know we are fed up. I keep telling them we are on our way to thier hometown, loaded with nasty weapons, and ready to clean up the place these scum call home. Die, you fucken nasty ass scammers, die horrible long painful deaths, and free us of the disgust they bring upon us. Gimme a high 5, '^5' or be thier victums quietly. lololol 'Yeah baby'.
I was going to post a nice picture of an ass hole, so I could portray them in the proper light, but I didnt want to be censored by one.

I received an email from misspreaty6@yahoo who called herself Zyanna. She was using email@example.com up to three days ago. This was the same person that scammed the guy above with Yahoo email address: firstname.lastname@example.org from Roseville, United States. If you would like to contact me I would be more than happy to talk to you. Seems like your as pasionate about the hate you have for these people as i do. Luckily(I know that is a bad word) I was scammed by a Nigerian Motherfucker 6 months ago so i have been somewhat schooled. This email meassage below is from a girl Nataliya from email account: sugaryfire29@yahoo. I know this alot of information but also getting emails from someone named Karina from address email@example.com. Any help would be appreciated. They haven't asked for money yet but both want to come to the USA and claim they are Russian. To be honest I do like to fuck with these people, I find myself being consumed with other people's emails and this whole Scam World. I stay in on the weekends and don't have a social life. On several occasion I lured several known scammers to talk to me and played at there own gane to scam them in the end. Usually I only let it go for no more than a week. I know I am messed up over these scumbags playing with my heart. I need help. Someone please talk to me. You can call me collect.
Hello Nick, thank's for your reply so much!!! I got your nice photo, thank you very much.
I hope soon I will be able to come to your area by my birthday and we will meet each other!
I'm not sure why I picked you but I feel something special about you!
Sorry my profile was not accurate. Honestly I thought it will be just like a joke to post my profile,
I just wanted to try if my English is well enough to talk to someone from another country and I
wanted to know if I can communicate with foreign people.
This time I will write you more about myself. I think you should know more about my life
and my hobbies so you will know if we have any common interests.
I'm 29 years old, not that young I think? My birthday is 27th of December 1977. I'm 167 cm tall (5.5.)
and 51 kg weight (about 120 pounds, I'm not sure how much it is in pound but I'm not fat!).
I don't know exactly my bust-waist-hips measurements, I don't have a reason to measure it because
I think it's OK and my body is proportionate )) I take care of my body, I do aerobics three times
a week and two times a week I go to the swimming pool.
I have an older sister, you can see her with me on photos. She is 32 years old now.
She recently divorced and she had 4 years old daughter. Her husband cheated on her.
We live with our parents in 3 room apartment.
Mom is much younger then my father and they are very happy together.
My mother is a teacher of music in the school. I can play piano also, she teached me how to play piano.
I finished music school and I still play piano about once a week. My father is retired engineer.
I like classic music, jazz, rock, lounge. I like music at all! I want to try how to ride a motorcycle someday!
I've never tried it! The name of my city is Petelino it's near Tyumen city.
Petelino is quite small town and Tyumen is a large city, the main city in our district.
There is no chance for a good life here and it is very hard to find work here.
All young people leave small towns and go to big cities in searches of work but unfortunately
there is too there is no luck for them in big cities because nobody is waiting them there.
Living in Russia is living ' all by myself '. It is good but cruel school of a life.
I hope that in he future I shall work as fitness trainer because I have the certificate and I am good in it.
I worked in last of two years as fitness trainer and it was the best time in my life.
I do not smoke, also I drink socially. My preference in alcohol is red wine, but only a glass or two.
I tried to smoke when I was younger. Silly me! But I think almost everyone tries to smoke when you are 13 years, right?
I try to take care of my body and the face as much as possible.
I wasn't born yesterday and I know that almost all men love women ' by their eyes ',
I mean that this or that way woman's appearance is very important for the man.
Speaking about my travel. I know that I shall have all documents to travel very soon
and I shall travel to Moscow at the end of this week again to finish all preparations for travel to the USA.
I shall get visa and I shall buy the ticket and then I shall fly to the USA.
I do not know where exactly I fly because I have not decided yet.
I can choose almost any state to stay that is why I need to know a name of the nearest international airport to you.
I just wish to have somebody expecting me at the airport and I do not wish to be alone there.
I shall fly to the USA directly from Moscow and I hope you will want to meet me at the airport
and to be my guide and it would be great to meet you face to face and to spend some time together.
I know that it is not an easy thing as it might seem, but there is nothing impossible, right?
I shall be more than glad if you understand me and my thoughts and you are with me in this question but if not,
then please tell me that you are not interested in me and do not wish to meet me, ok?
I think I should close this letter.
It is not good that I have no computer at home and I have to send my letters to you from Internet cafe
which is far from my house. I would like to talk to you on the phone,
but unfortunately we have no opportunity for international calls
(I cannot call to you and you cannot call to me because here we have four-digital telephone numbers).
It is possible to make international phone calls only from big cities.
All right, it is enough for today.
If I did not tell you something which is very important for you or I missed something, please do not be angry.
Just ask me and I will answer for sure.
I think I shall be here in the Internet cafe tomorrow,
I have many preparations before travel to Moscow. I hope when I come here, I shall see one more letter from you.
Please write me and do not forget me!!! I'm sending few photos for you today! I hope you are not tired to look at my photos?
my home address:
Petelino, Lenina str. 10
PS Please send me as many as possible photos of so that I could know you at the airport.
And one more thing. I have very important question for you:
- Do you like strong drinks?
- If so, then how much and how often?
