Are you an American or Western European man exchanging emails with a girl from Russia? I was contacted by a girl who turned out to be a scammer. Reader Derrick put together some great advice how to detect scammers.
I only have one advice (#8) to add: If a Russian girl tells you that she will get a visa to the USA instead of inviting you, that is - under the current immigration law - a SURE sign that SHE LIES.

Here is the process how a Russian woman can come to the USA:

If she is considered a relatively young/ attractive woman (let's say under 40, hope I don't hurt anyone's feelings here), then there is virtually NO CHANCE THAT SHE GETS A TOURIST VISA TO THE USA. First the Russian Federation will not allow her to leave the country. Then, even if she was getting out, the USA will deny her admission. The reasoning is that she is considered a risk. How could she not be a risk? If she had family in Russia (husband, children) or a valuable business or real estate. Most likely the woman who writes you will be considered a risk. The only way for her to get a visa into the USA is this procedure:

  1. the foreign man visits her in her native area in Russia
  2. they get engaged during such a visit - take photos of the 2 of you together
  3. he flies back and applies for a K-1 visa. A K-1 visa is also known as Fiancee visa, used for marriage-based immigration
  4. once the K1 visa is granted, the girl can enter the USA and stay there for 3 months. By the end of these 3 months you HAVE to GET MARRIED or the girl has to go back home.
  5. if you get married, the girl gets a greencard and can work
  6. after 3 years of marriage, the girl can apply for a US citizenship. That's when they interview you to find out if it's a real marriage. She also has to answer some questions about US history, political system, etc etc.


Here are Derrick's tricks (1-7) that he uses immediately from the start:
  1. GOOGLE or websearch the first part of the scammers first emails and/or 'profile'. SEE HOW MANY OTHER SITES their listed on! RECORD THOSE SITES FOR FUTURE REFERENCE. THAT alone can give you a good idea IF your dealing with a scammer OR not.
  2. GOOGLE or websearch the return email address. See how many 'hits' come from that search and also note all the sites. (many times you'll see the email end up on a 'scammers list') IF YOU FIND THE EMAIL ADDRESS LISTED ON A SCAMMER LIST - don't bother further, your only fooling yourself - no matter what excuse they might give you.
  3. FROM THE START - ASK FOR SPECIFIC INFOMATION! A full name, address, phone number - something. OFFER THE SAME in exchange, except make it a P.O. box and a CELL PHONE rental card that will protect your identity. If you see your requests ignored, which you usually will, don't waste your time further.
  4. ALWAYS ASK SPECIFIC QUESTIONS that would REQUIRE A SPECIFIC ANSWER outside the use of FORM LETTERS. IF YOU FIND your questions go unaddress in your reply emails from 'them/her' - YOUR DEALING WITH A SCAMMER. Again, don't bother further.
  5. DON'T WAIT 6 MONTHS to offer to talk with the PROSPECT by phone! WHAT A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME! IF THERE IS CHEMISTRY OR APPEARS 'INTEREST' BETWEEN THE TWO OF YOU - then sieze the opportunity. ARRANGE A PHONE CALL! International rates to Russia and most places are reasonably cheap. IF YOU GET THE REPLY ' I'M SO POOR I DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO A PHONE' - drop the whole thing, your only wasting your time and WILL BE SCAMMED at some point in the future.
  6. PHOTO FLOOD! IF IT/SHE/HIM/THEM - LOOK TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE - THEN IT PROBABLY IS! MOST IF NOT ALL OF THE SCAMMES USE PHOTOS OF MODELS IN THEIR HOME COUNTRIES TO POSE ON THE NET IN THEIR PROFILE(s)! Consider this - IF THEY LOOK like a MODEL then tell you they're so poor they don't have access to a phone - YOUR BEING SCAMMED!

    ASK FOR A SPECIAL PHOTO TO BE TAKEN. IF YOU SENT YOURS, HAVE THEM TAKE A PHOTO SHOWING THEM HOLDING UP YOUR PHOTO IN THE PICTURE! That is a good 'scammer filter' - even the most adept with Photoshop will easily be spoted.

    BETTER STILL - ASK THEM TO TAKE A PHOTO THAT SHOWS THEM HOLDING A CURRENT NEWPAPER OF YOUR CHOICE OR THEIR COUNTRY, WITH A RESOLUTION THAT YOU CAN READ THE DATE! NOT some low grade - grainy photo! FEW WILL EVER DO THAT.

    AT THE LEAST - ASK THEM FOR A PHOTO of them wearing a specific combination of clothes and/or colors - something different then the usual 'model clothing' - most use to send out. OR AN OBJECT - TOASTER, ELECTRIC CLOCK, BY A COUCH, IN A ROCKING CHAIR something that would be very hard to use PHOTOSHOP to just PUT in another FILE PHOTO.

    *** IF this person is real or sincere, they won't mind doing this for you! ALSO - offer to do the same for their comfort also - that is only fair.
  7. IF THINGS GET SERIOUS - then ASK THEM TO DELETE ALL THEIR OTHER WEB PROFILE POSTS! CHECK ON THE ONES YOU NOTED EARLIER! Again, IF THEIR SINCERE - they will - happily as your their DREAM and future!
  8. If she talks about getting a visa or that she needs money to get a travel visa to the USA, she lies. See the proper course of action described at the top.

She(he) sent me a nicemail
----------------------------------------------------- --
Hello, my dear tiger UNKO.
I miss your letters.
When you do not see your new mail, I open the ancient letters and
reread again. I am very interested in learning more closely. Please
answer me right away when you have a chance. I'm sorry if something I
did not answer your letter immediately. Now I have a busy time. We
must learn to work and engage in my visit to your country. It takes a
long time, but I look at it, I find the ability to read your letters
and write the answer for you. I hope you're not offended by me, my
dear UNKO? It would be nice to talk on the phone and hear your
voice, but to my great regret, more recently, I lost my phone on the
bus staff. Buying a new phone in my country very expensive. I think
that buying a new phone, during the passing of my internship, because
the prices of telephones in your country and significantly lower than
in Russia. Unfortunately, I can not give any phone number. Therefore,
the easiest way for our communication and now e-mail correspondence,
and I hope for your understanding. As I said before, I have many
concerns with the upcoming trip and there is no time to deal with the
problem of the phone. Now, I do not know the exact date of my
departure for training, I still kept in limbo. But, as I promised the
Chancellor of the University, the matter will be resolved in the near
future. Once all know my journey, I will tell you now the exact news.
The most important thing for me and that very soon we will be able to
meet, and I can explain to you all, looking into the beautiful eyes. I
look forward to the day when I can see in reality. Mmmmm, it would be
so great! You also want this, UNKO? Unfortunately, perhaps, need
to finish my letter. I want to close my eyes and dream of you. I want
to see you in my dreams and fulfill all our desires, which are now
only in our thoughts. By the way, tomorrow I go for my birthday my
girlfriend Tanya. To be honest, I do not want to go. I think I would
be bored there, because it will not be next to me. Many girls will be
with man who have some of them already have children. I'm tired of
being alone and want to be next to me was a man who will love me. I am
very happy that we met with you and we are able to develop our
relationship. But I could not refuse my girlfriend, because it is
close to me man. All photos done exactly Tanya and I want to tell her
enormous gratitude. I will tell you the great secret of our
friendship. When we started college, me and Tanya were lovers. We were
young, we would like affection and tenderness. But our relationship
did not last long, for about 1 month. We realized that we are not
lesbians. We concluded that no girl will not be able to give so much
love and affection, like a man. We Tanya remained good girlfriend.
Maybe you want to see his picture? okay. But I can tell you girl, and,
above all, she is a true girlfriend who supports me in every difficult
situation. Maybe I should talk to you about this, because my story
might not like Tanya, but as I told you before, I want to be among us
has not had any secrets. This story c Tanya, was our secret and make
it stay that way. If you do not have problems, please do not tell
anyone. Let this story will remain between us. She agreed, my prince
UNKO? Open your heart and soul and I hope you will answer me in
return. I can not wait your email back to me. I hope that my letter to
you does not seem sad or bored. If suddenly you become sad, I want to
apologize for sending my pictures. Do you forgive me? :) Once you
become sad and lonely, look at my picture and everything changes. I
want to give you a smile. Do not forget me. Millions of kisses for
you. Your holy cat Svetlana

She is scamming , LOL

---------------------------------------------------------
Hello dear UNKO!
How's life? I hope you will do well.
I have great news, all my travel documents ready. Tomorrow or the next day I will go to Moscow to be more in place of my internship. Literally as soon as I heard the news and immediately wrote to youabout it. When I sit down at my computer, I was hoping to see your letter, and now I am very happy that I've written. I feel I already miss you. In a nutshell, when I read your letters, my heart begins to beat in rhythm and I frequent this nice. I feel the warm feelings and I am very happy to continue to communicate with you. Why do I feel that you are very good and kind man. They are very easy and pleasant to write a letter! Birthday girlfriend and went well, but I was very
bored, I was very sorry that you were not with me. Now I have no one. And it is very difficult. I'm young and I also very large sexual appetite. Therefore, we must be satisfied with toys, dildos and
masturbation. I'm a little 'embarrassed to write about this, but I hope you are not afraid of it. I do not think I'm doing somethingunnatural.


I just want to have sex, and I want it. I think it's natural, and do not hesitate to do so. This natural and that is not bad. Please tell me you want to see my new photos? I see that our relations are developing very well, and we can learn from each other. I want to tell you that I am a very sexual girl and I need a lot of sex. Very modestly))))))))))))) When I arrive in your country, and we
meet, you will be able to offer a great pleasure for me in bed. I want you to know that I want a lot of sex. I just ask.


The fact that I have here a man who for many reasons. In the first place because I'm going to leave Russia, so I'm looking for someone here. Secondly, the men in our country, very onservative and shy and insecure. I love sex, I like everything new that you can try. I love the new positions, role play and new places for sex. I like oral sex. I think this is one of the most beautiful types of sex is the most intimate. I wish you gave me to cum on my face. I've never felt this great feeling.

But I really want to try with you, UNKO. Here, none of the men can not give me such pleasure. Psychology Russian men are very conservative, and this is unacceptable to them, I do not want just sex in the missionary position. It 's very monotonous. I want something new, I have many
ideas and I like to experiment! I want to try all positions Kamasutra. I hope you can help me learn. I need a partner for the study of sexuality. I also want to ask you what you think of oral sex? We will deal with them?

But please, do not think that I was so depraved. I can not do anything with them. You're really turns me on! I have a strong desire, you can not imagine! With me and the first time! I just can
not control myself! I believe that sex in a relationship and very important! I hope you realize that for the other, and we will be together for life. I am ready to devote their life to a person who
understands me, appreciate and love. I hope this person is you! I want to meet a man who is worthy of my love pure and sincere. I want to send this letter, my picture quite candid. I have photos even more honest, and I will send them later, but please bear with me.

I hesitated a bit. ' If you choose this course. I hope you enjoy my photos. I also hope that these pictures I have not seen anyone except you. These photos are just for you, and I would not want to get my picture, someone else had seen. I hope you like my pictures, I really want to know your opinion. I also hope that I have not confused with my pictures, and I think I'm depraved.

If you're confused by something, then just tell me and I will not continue to do so. I'd like to see a picture that you end up with my photos. I think it's very exciting. But that's just the thought. I'd love to see your cum on my body and face! I love sex and I'll tell you honestly, I really want to UNKO! I conclude my letter and I feel great enthusiasm. Among my feet very wet and I urgently need to find my toy! I hope this letter brings a smile to your face and warmth to the heart and pants:)))) I really hope to see your new letter in the near future! A large number of hot kisses and hugs!

YoSvetlana!
