Russian and ukrainian dating scams Onetoone sexchat
Scammers use services like Western Union because it is all but impossible to track the recipient of the money which can be picked up anywhere in the world.
A scammer could be a man or woman operating solo, posing as an attractive young lady, or part of an organized scamming operation.
She will then ask you to send her money for her plane ticket and/or visa.
This ploy also relies on the stereotypical assumption that all Russian and Eastern European women want to move to or visit America, Canada, the UK or Australia which simply isn't the case.
At this point she will set the victim up as her knight in shining armor, the only one who can help her.
She might just need money to pay her bills but will probably want desperately to come and visit him in his Western nation.
This is likely to be a scan of a fake or fabricated visa.
Often, the photos belong to an international photo model.
Such operations have been known to hire young Russian women to act as the voice on the other end of that romantic phone call.
After taking the time to get to know you, she says she's coming to visit you or wants to move to your country.
Her monthly salary is only a few hundred dollars, all Russian men are drunks and maybe her family died in a tragic accident or they are ill and in need of surgery.
Heart strings are pulled and victims are sucked in.
The airline tickets can easily be exchange for cash, so don't think that sending tickets buys you any protection.
