SOME GENERAL INFO ABOUT RUSSIAN GIRLS, AND HOW TO SPOT RUSSIAN DATING SCAMMERS:

The vast majority of Russian dating scammers are not women at all, but 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 internet 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)...
http://www.webextractor.com/
and copied form mails and spam programs on automatic reply, very often the BAT!, which can personalize small parts of each letter.
http://www.ritlabs.com/en/products/thebat/


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!

If, by any chance, you don't believe any of this, please read: http://www.cheboksaryrussia.net/russian-scams/russian-scammers.html

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 fiance 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 cafs 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.
UK: http://www.ukvac-ru.com/document.aspx
USA: http://moscow.usembassy.gov/consular/consular.php?record_id=reqvdocs

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 golden rule: 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 also have been SCAMMED....Aware of this type of activity I have been playing along for the past week. Waiting for the other shoe to drop, and the one that would finally ask for money, which I finally received today. My Imaginary Russian girl was named Oksana Soutyagina. Below I have the final letter hitting me up for money. I have continued to play along and told her I will be flying to Russia next week to save her and for her to show me how much she loves me by sending me NUDE photo's of herself...LOL Good luck to all of you out there and play with them. Thanks for all the info on this webpage, it didn't save me any money but I am sure for a lot of guys out there, you are saving them a lot of grief and CASH!!!!!!

be able to solve.I wanted to
ask you to help me to pay for tickets but they tell that
I can't use your help or ask you about sending me tickets because I have
permission to use the help of agency only because they do all travel things and
it is their
business to arrange all travel things for my jorney,it is the law.and it is not
possible to get work visa without help of agency,too strong laws.
I was sure that my mom will help me becasue she promised but now she sent telegram
that it is possible only in a few months or so because of
family problems.and she can't send transfer now.I was in the bank to try to
ask
them about loan but they tell I have to have something to stay them
and I have nothing to stay because I have only a few
dress and things,some perfume and it is all I have,and small gift for you from
russia with love.and I think it is not great problem for you
to help me.I even think that maybe it will give you the pleasure to help me
because you are my knight,rught? after all payments here and travel by plane I
have about 300$ my own money and
I need about 990$ from your side,because I have to pay for ticket and a
few thigs yet,and I have to pay in advance about 1290$ and if the tickets will
cost less i will get some money back. when we meet
I will return this sum and some extra money because to send thransfer costs
money too.I have to be sure that I will be able to book it or I will lose all the
money I gave them
in advance.I'm not going to ask one more time for your
help,you see I am in hard situation.I will be waiting for your answer .I know it
sounds like I am pooroutsider but you see I have not
time or somebody to ask about help,you know my mom gave me all that we with mom
could collect for my travel.I hate to ask but now I don't have any other choice.you

my life.I know you are kind man and I do hope you will be
able to help me.I promise I will return all the money .and I will earn money

western union list and you can choice any bank in Moscow,they tell it is
international service and I can get money in any bank of
Moscow. they tell I can get only Western Union or Moneygram transfer because I
have not any
bank accounts in Moscow and I have only passport and it is
enough to get it! P.S. I am not sure I should tell this but I want to let you
know that if you don't like me I will not bother you and it is only your choice
to spend time with me I
know you may be too busy,and in any case I will return money back .you know I
will have rent room ,job and I want to say that you don't worry that I want
to use you just for my goals.and I

it,promise,and I hate people who imagined so many silly rules and laws.and I
have only small suitcase with me.and I dream about our first
meeting,our first night and I have some sexy night dress with me! and I think
that now everything depends on you my hope and I will check my mail all day and
all night
because i can't sleep if I am not sure that everything is all right and you
can help,please dear don't
leave me alone i have done so much and I am almost near you.
and I can stay more than six months,I can stay longer it is possible if we fall
in love and going to marry.But I think we need time to learn each other.

Well thank god I am not alone. I have been scammed by a man I met on eharmony. i really wish i would have found this site before i sent a lap top to my 'new son' as requested by his father whom I imagined I was in love with. Austine and I communicated on yahoo messenger for a few weeks before he made his request. Then he got some time off from work (as he told me he was a mechanical engineer) as an off shore driller working in the UK. He went to Nigeria to pick up his son Zuby so they could travel together to come make a home here in Canada. On the way to the airport they were in a horrible car crash where the taxi driver was killed. A doctor contacted me as Austines next of kin and asked if I could guarantee that the hospital bills would be covered. Austine was unconscious and could not talk. OMG what was I to do so I said yes go ahead we would cover it. Now I am being called by the doctor, Austine's father-in-law (Austine is a widower) and Austine. They are going to suspend his treatment in the hospital if I don't send $5500 dollars. To bad I found this site before I sent anything else the poor bastard is going to die....Oh well one less scammer. I sent the laptop to 12 Idodo street Achara layout Enugu State Nigeria. Austine Zarita Brown born July 8th 1961, the Father-in-law Anua Bethrand Sunny and the son Zuby born Feb. 18th, 1995. Watch out for any of these Names or address. Email addresses austinebrown37@yahoo.com or bethrand_anua@yahoo.com drjackson232@yahoo.com
phone numbers are 44-708-578-4920 or 234-808-949-9947 or 234-805-837-2766
Too bad I thought this one was a keeper.

same history as the one I read in page 23
first you get an e-mail of someone interested in you, very rare (I just was trying out the dating site to search for a woman, then I never use this dating site ever again) that someone can even be interested in you when I had almost no information about myself.
then they tell you I am good, and it turns out they are in trouble in africa. There you think there is no way someone tell you that they love you and they need money, there you go you have to do your homework and thanks to the feedback from other people you verify what you were suspicious about, it was a scam.

I am honest, intelligent, loyal, affectionate, easy going, romantic, soft-spoken and sensual. I'm romantic, caring, and much more! I'm 'crazy' about all pets. espcially dogs and cats. I love nature and I like to travel. I like books and reading Bible..I'm looking for for a partner for life..are you the one?? Apperance is important but more importantly: Are you an honest, caring, loving guy?? if the REAL answer is 'YesI'm seeking a serious long term relationship and more. Someone special to capture my heart and knows how to handle it with care, one who will cherish me and be willing to share life's greatest joys and sorrows. Someone who's willing to spoil, pamper and love me unconditionally, whom is kind, sincere, honest, passionate, loyal, sense of humor, loving and wants a lifetime of passion., so only serious inquiries will be accepted.. am looking for someone to love as well, Capture my heart.Someone kind and affectionate, fun and optimistic, motivated and active. A real person, who likes themself and is comfortable with who they are, even if not where they are. Someone who can keep up with me, challenge me and inspire me. And who is intelligent, has ideas, may be creative and has needs and/or expectations to be fullfilled.I'm looking for my soulmate to share lifes dreams with, someone who still believes in romance,fun,and is a true gentleman at heart.But i find it difficult to get someone that will be able to capture my heart,win my heart.A man that will wipe off my tears and sorrows for ever.A man that will be able to bring me back on my feetA man that will be able to bring out my precious gold, that has been threw into ocean.Because my life is full of tragedy. am going through a hard problem right now.I went through ur profile and found out that you are better for me and i found out that we are %99 compatible,the only 1% missing .I know you looking for someone to stand by you now.I plan a big change .I really need help right now ..
Hope to hear from you soon..
Lonely Brenda

If you see these pictures of this lady , on any dating sites it is a scam. I was fooled by her or who ever it was. She goes by the name Doris Michael . She also has a chat name of doris33617 , tinalewis1200 , dorismichael1200 . Her e-mail address is dorismichael1200@yahoo.com . She claimed to have a buiseness here in Florida and several clients here in the US . And she was in Nigera Africa, on a buseness trip. She said she buys clothing material and ships it back to the US to her wherehouse in Florida.Her clients buy them from her there. She told me she did not have enough money to get her goods from customs to ship to the US. So she wanted me to send her money ,western union or money gram, after she had one of her clients send money to me to cash or deposite in my account. Which there is no clients ,and the money orders are fake , and the deposite checks are fake . But they look very real and sometimes full the banks. And believe it or not they send out hundreds of these fakes every day. This person ( man or woman ) asks for you to send the money western union to :
Name... Charles Helderman
Address... 10ADEBAYO ST.TKEIA
City... LAGOS ILAND
State... LAGOS STATE
Zip... 23401
Country... Nigeria

This is believed to be the scammers real name.
PS .. After I figured the scam out this person wanted me to join him/her to scam other people, by getting a account with fed ex to to get fake money orders and mail them out for him/her!! They have guts and they work at this full time!! And the scammer accually told me they make 1000's a week at this scam!!

It is a scam. But just for the future, you don't have to go there and she doesn't have to come to you. They all meet their internet boy- or girl-friends in Turkey. Russians don't have to get a visa to go there (just a stamp in the airport) and it's pretty affordable for most of the representatives of Russian so called middle class.

Hello there, My name is Graeme Gibson; I am new to this Internet dating scene here, I encountered this scammer on 'wildmatch.com' no need to hint of this web site. I am becoming more and more aware of this mean shady world of crewel scammers.

She had posted her email. and claims in this letter regards this situation she is in. I was almost scammed (but did not send the money by nother scmmer 'betty holten' who encountered me on wayn.com (a social networking site. This lady I am suspicious of her. should i receive a second message.

I became suspicious after reading of scams online that are associated with a supposed company (likely fake asuming here)

lovelillianfred@mail.mn (MN is the country code for Mongolia) assuming she is using a 'free email service based in this country, I checked the domain-name country code using WhoIs based search') to email or scam people, I am not sure of her intentions. But shall I receive a email' from her I will continue to post

The IP address is mail.mn ~ 202.13. 14

Dearest,
How was your night over there in your country and the day,i believe you had a nice night and that the arthmosphere over there in your country is very nice today? Mine was a little bit warm over here in Dakar Senegal.

My name is Lillian Desmond,i am (24yrs) but age doesn't matter in a real relationship,so i am confortable with your age,I am from Rwanda in Africa,5.4ft tall, fair in complexion, single,(never married ) and presently i am residing here in Dakar as a result of the civil war that was fought in my country some years ago.

My late father DR Morris D. Desmond was the managing director of Desmond COCOA INDUSTRIES (Ltd) in KIGALI (the capital city of RWANDA,my country) before the rebels attacked our house one early morning and killed my mother and my father in cold blood.

It was only me that is alive now and I managed to make my way to a near by country SENEGAL where i am leaving now as a refugee under a Revrend father's care and i am using his computer to send these message to you.

I would like to know more about you.Your likes and dislikes,your hobbies and what you are doing presently.I will tell you more about myself in my next mail.Attached here is my picture.
Hoping to hear from you soonest
Yours forever,
Lillian.

Hidden US,
although you did not give any further information I know it is a scam.
Nothing genuine ever came out of Ghana and real persons never scan their passports.
Do what you want but NEVER send one single cent to her!
