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.
The scammer will later explain that she’s from Russia but couldn’t select it as an option on the dating site.
In the first few letters the scammer will say what a good woman she is and how hard life is in Russia.
Sometimes, they will even cite certain immigration requirements to sound more convincing.
But rest assured, once you send that money that is the last you will hear from her.
With many people catching on to this scam, the scammers have “improvised” their story a little.
Just when you think everything is going smoothly, there is a last minute problem and they will request you to urgently send them some money, without which it will be impossible for them to make their trip.
If you are seeing a Russian woman and are keen on meeting her, it is always wiser for you to go visit them instead of inviting them to visit you.
This way you can avoid losing money through a scam and a traditional Russian woman would probably prefer it if the man made the effort to come visit her.
The photos are stunning, perhaps professionally taken or provocative, but the description of what she's looking for in a partner is vague.
It could be a scammer, often a man, using photos downloaded from the internet in the hope of sucking in as many victims as possible.The period from first contact to first cash request could be a few days or a few months but regardless how long you've "known" the person, a request for money is a scam.
