Russia online dating scam elena yalpaeva
Almost all scammers tell their victims that "this the the first time she uses the internet to get aquatinted with a man".To speed up the process, the scammer "falls in love" with each of the potential victims literally within two to six weeks.And so " she" will reluctantly ask for financial help again.If the guy is determined to make her supposed trip happen regardless of the expenses, he sends the money again and again.She will explain in detail how much it will cost to get the visa and the tickets, and how to send the necessary amount to get things going.At first, many scammers start with a small amount - 0-0 for the for their hotel "accommodations" in Moscow while they are filing for their visa with the US Embassy.Often, scammers use big online dating web sites to approach their potential victims.
"She" will get robbed or attacked, may become injured or sick, may suddenly get arrested, or her apartment may get flooded or burned.
If the guy agrees, the "lady" pretends to put all effort into making "her" travel arrangements. " She" acts surprised to find out that there are various expensive requirements that " she" has to comply with before she can fly out of the country.
Those supposed requirements usually include proof of financial independence and requirement to pay off all loans that "she" has in her name.
And this mastermind is not at all who you think (s)he is... A scammer usually finds a set of pictures of an attractive girl 18-45 years old female (or, if the scammer IS an attractive girl, she uses her own pictures) and places personal ads in as many international dating catalogs as possible.
A lot of scammers actively seek out new potential victims rather than wait for the victims to come to them.
