Is this Russian girl scamming me? How to recognize scammers

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.

This I recently got from Anastacia:

Hello honey!

How are you doing? I hope everything is going well for you. I am so sorry but I didn't have a chance to
write you earlier. I am well. I went to some my relatives and friends who live in neighboring city that
ask they borrow me some money. Unfortunately it was unsuccessful. My mother is feeling well and her
doctor said that she is recovering pretty fast. I'm very glad that everything goes well for her. My
aunt Vera is feeling good too. She lives in our apartment now and will take care of my mother in the
nearest future since I'm leaving to NYC. I hope that friend Katerina will help my mother also.
Well, I tried to find more money in this days, but it seems that I took off all money from my relatives
and friends already. I also tried to formalize a loan to my aunt Vera, but since she is a pensioner and
does not have appropriate income to get such loan I was refused again. I started to feel that the things
will not work out for me, but I decided to go to my agency and ask them if I could get an advance ($5400)
which I'll get in NYC here in Zaozerniy. But I was disappointed again. I was told that I'll get my advance
as soon as I'll sign the contract. When I'll sign the contract I'll get this money in cash or they could
be deposited into my account which I'll have to open. I was absolutely upset Alan. I asked in the agency
if I could get a loan but do not tell in the bank that I'm leaving to NYC. And I was told that when I'll
pass the registration in the airport I'll be check out completely - they will check my documents, baggage
and my credit history! And if I have a debt I'll not be allowed for boarding. They showed the simple example:
Let's imagine that somebody got a loan of $100000.00 dollars (or more) and fly away. In this case the bank
has no possibility or law to return the money back. Alan, I have to confess - I made a mistake. I was asked
before the operation: 'who will pay the bill after the surgery'. And I told them that I will. I have never
expected that it will so expensive. I was told that it will be much cheaper. So I signed the paper where I'm
figuring like a payer. What a fool I am! But what I have to do? What did you do if you will be on my place?
I suppose you will do the same Alan. I do not know how it is accepted there but here in Russia it is very
common when the children help their parents especially if they are pensioners. Alan, please do not blame
me too much; I know that I did stupid thing. I learned my lesson well. But I do not know what to do now. My
agency said they can wait 3 weeks and then my work place could be occupied by another employer. I know it
could look weird but it seems that you are my last hope. I know for sure that I will not earn $970 dollars in
3 weeks, it's impossible. Alan, could you help me with money somehow? It will be not a gift! I want to borrow
the money from you. I swear I'll repay the money back to you as soon as I come to NYC and get my advance. I
believe I can send the money from NYC to you somehow, or I could repay the money when we'll meet. Please believe
me Alan, I'm not going to deceive you! I have no reason to do so. My new life is waiting for me in America
and I hope YOU are waiting for me too! Please let me now if you could help me. And if you could I'll give the
information on how you could help me, ok. Please do not think that I push you to do it. If you can't I'll
understand then. I know that many people in America live from check to check and maybe you have your own problems
that need your attention. But I hope you will help me Alan. Maybe when we meet we will laugh at this together,
but for now I really need a support. Well I have to close now. I'll try to find out something, maybe the situation
is not as bad as it seems! I'll keep you informed!
I'll wait for your reply anxiously!
With Deep Affection for You!
Your Russian g/friend
Nastya

Thank you. I have been emailing Olesia for a few days but something didn't seem quite right. She asked questions about American movies I thought she would like and I mentioned a few that I thought were really good. She even mentioned she loved Johnny Depp but her latest email said nothing about the movies I recomended nor did she answer any of the questions I asked. She never addressed me by name in her emails but had a picture of her holding a sign that read (Hello 'insert my name') I ended up doing a search of her home town 'Sajansk' and found warnings about her.

I then searched her name 'Olesia Dawidowa' and found more warnings. she sent me an email about her trip to Moscow and that she is staying with a 70 year old woman and sure enough that same letter is posted here. Now I can have some fun. When she asks me to wire her money I will make up a fake transfer number for Western Union and waste her time the way she has wasted mine. Also she emailed me on singlesnet and said she was traveling here on a work visa for 3 months and wanted to meet a man to help her while she was here.

This woman is good. She has found a way around many of the classic signs of a scammer- she doesn't claim to want to live here, she doesn't claim to want to marry and she claims to be using a well known visa program. Her emails are long and detailed and made me believe she was spending alot of time talking to me. The photo of her holding a sign saying 'hello' impressed me until I realized she never called me by name in her emails.

Eddie from Sweden  
markofmuzik@yahoo.ca ...no point in calling them 'bitches', 90% of Russian scammers are GUYS, and most of them work out of Yoshktar Ola and the Mari El republic. They buy and exchange pictures sets from/with each other, usually stolen from the internet, etc. There are a few hundred of them doing it in small gangs or freelance, they use a chick accomplice to phone you if you get suspicious or to pick up the loot.

Otherwise, they get email addresses using an email extractor, and often use a spamming software called the BAT! to reply with form mails. There's no point in writing back to them with insults in English, they don't even read your mails usually, mostly cos none of them can speak English and they're scamming too many guys at the same time. They only usually read them after the money letter to see if you're going for it.

In other words, stop thinking of them as 'BITCHES' and start thinking of them as 'SCAMMERS'.

For reference sake, it pays to recognize a few of the Russian scam signs:

- 'girl' writes to you first on a dating site (or an email appears out of nowhere in your mailbox). Real Russian girls are rarely that bold. (unless you're very attractive or rich). Plus if they're looking for a partner, they generally prefer him to be Russian speaking and live in Russia.
- girl's much too young for you (or too good to be true/looks like a model/porno star)
- scammers rarely have children, but all the real Russian women I've ever met did.
- photos are too revealing (can't be a respectable girl)
- most of the pics are old and a little bit faded. Most scam photos have a curiously grainy quality that soon becomes easy to recognise. A serious girl who's looking for a partner, would save up and go to a professional to have a photo set done, and/or borrow a digicam at least (dates should also be on the photos you receive). Russian girls aren't all that poor anymore.
- girl claims not to have a mobile phone. very unlikely. even poor girls have a mobile phone in Russia, they're much cheaper than in Europe and a megafon telephone card doesn't cost that much either. On the other hand, not having a landline or a computer is quite common.
- very long rambling form letters in scamlish with a strange format, punctation, layout. (world's worst Babelfish copy)
- writes everyday in English (how does she have time if she's working? + most Russians can hardly speak a word of English). Anyway, what's the point of finding a girl if you can't communicate with her, at least on a basic level?
- 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. You could be an axe murderer for all she knows.
- wants money for a 'visa' and/or maybe tickets, even though 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. Without these documents, it's impossible for 'her' to get a sponsored Schengen visa. USA is almost as complicated. And normal tourist visas + costs would set her back 3000+ dollars. 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.
- 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 u won't be able to trace the IP. hotmail and yahoo are acceptable if she'll chat with you on messenger, otherwise why does she have a non-cyrillic email account?

I have been contacted by a Tatyana from Kirov (it says!) who sent me 5 letters before saying that she may need some money to visit me in Germany. Does anyone know of her? Her E-mail is: tatarka78@gmail.com . She sounds quite real, but after all the stories my trust is gaaaaawwn. Mark

Mark!!...leave well alone, famous scam pics that are all over this site, can't remember which thread though. Drod might remember.

Otherwise a real Russian girl would never ask you for money, much too bold, you'd more or less have to force her to take it (I speak from experience, my fiancée is Russian and I've been there twice in 12 months, 2 Russian girls have visited me in Sweden).

Apart from that, Kirov is in the next republic from Mari El, the dating scam center of Russia.

If the girl was really going to visit you in Germany, this is what she'd need to get a Schengen visa and reach you:

1. money for round trip train tickets from Kirov to Moscow (3rd class = c 2000rub) +
2. money for round trip plane tickets from Moscow to Germany (c 9000rub) +
3. money for hotel accommodation in Moscow for 7-10 days while she waits for her visa or money to pay the travel agent to pick it up for her ....(the cheaper option, travel agent picks them up = c 5000rub) +
4. money for Schengen visa, photos etc (c 1500 rub)
5. money to pay for a hotel in Germany during her stay in Sweden...paid in advance or she won't get her visa (the ABSOLUTE cheapest option, a youth hostel dormitory!! = c 8000 rub) +
6. enough spending money to convince the authorities that she could support herself during her stay, food, bus links from airports etc ...how much shoud we say, conservatively = c 10000 rub

Total: 35,500rub = slightly over 1000 euros (but expect to pay more!!)
ie the absolute minimum for a 10-day vacation in Germany, travelling 2nd/3rd class and staying in the absolute cheapest accommodation.

If you sponsored her, you would eliminate costs 5 and 6 but on the other hand, you would have to provide a letter of invitation, a copy of your passport, a proof of residency in germany and fill in a sponsor's application form etc etc etc. ...before she can get her visa. The cost would then be somewhere between 600-700 euros.

So Mark, out of curiosity, see how much she asks for. if she asks for 150 euros 'for a visa', this is bullshit, she needs the tickets in advance.

Either way, this person is a scammer. Don't send money!!!!!
