Photos of russian dating scammers
They may change their names and/or contact information, but they can't change their age, because scammers use the same sets of photos most times and have to indicate the age, which would correspond to the age of the girl in the photos.Perhaps you know that she is 25, try to search for her with 25-25 or 24-26 or 23-27 or other combinations, selecting the country where she claims to live.This was all accompanied by some very nice pictures of someone.Anyway, the sordid story continues and ‘she’ decides she loves me so much that ‘she’ wants to come and see me but, alas, ‘she’ can’t afford the airfare.However, ‘she’ knows a really cheap travel agent that will cut a great deal if we book right now (‘Her’ birthday’s coming up – did I mention that?)”Presumably the reason for the liberal use of single quotes around the word “she” in Hot Lips’ account is because, of course, the odds are as good as not that the person behind the scam may be of the Y-chromosome variety, and not a woman at all.
is certainly not the only online dating site to be hit by the Russian dating scam, nor are dating scams limited to Russia or Russian women, but they certainly seem to be the front-runners.
Fraudulent acts may involve access to the victims' money, bank accounts, credit cards, passports, e-mail accounts, or national identification numbers or by getting the victims to commit financial fraud on their behalf.
Letters are exchanged between the scammer and victim until the scammer feels they have groomed the victim enough to ask for money.
This might be for requests for gas money or bus and airplane tickets to travel to visit the victim, medical expenses, education expenses etc.
There is usually the promise that the fictitious character will one day join the victim in the victim's country.
