Romance russian scams dating
Choose a reputable dating service or agency in order to avoid being scammed this way.
You come across a profile of a young, attractive woman on an online dating site or maybe she contacts you.
After some time, she will tell you she cannot continue communicating with you as she cannot afford to pay for the translation service anymore.
At this point, they either expect you to offer to pay for the service or even ask you if you will be willing to pay for the service so you can continue your relationship.
She professes her love and gives instructions to send money through Western Union or Money Gram.
This is a broad example of Russian online dating scams.
Russian dating sites are very popular and while many men have met genuine, loving Russian women, unfortunately sometimes one encounters scammers as well.
A scammer could be a man or woman operating solo, posing as an attractive young lady, or part of an organized scamming operation.
While most Russian dating websites are genuine, a number of them are fake and their so-called members are not real either.
