Yahoo dating scam email address
In a nutshell what is usually happening with these "letter services" (pay-per-letter services) is that the agency is writing letters on behalf of the women, often without their knowledge.Alternatively, the girl may actually be writing the letters, but the agency shares the revenue with her (so she's "real", her name and photos are accurate, she's actually writing, but she's PAID to do it, and the longer she keeps you writing, the more she earns).If you found my site by Googling something like "Russian dating scams", this is the one page you must read, learn, and live!!! It also constitutes 90% of the advice I'm going to give if you seek my advice about a specific scam situation.I don't have any official statistics, but I'd estimate that at least 90% of all Russian dating scams fall into one of two categories.That's a little frustrating to me because scams are so easy to avoid.Far too many men become obsessed with determining if the woman with whom they are currently corresponding is "real" that their quest to find a partner never reaches the step of making a trip to meet REAL Russian/Ukrainian women.Sometimes this can occur when you actually write a girl on a site, sometimes the girl contacts you on a site, or sometimes the girl directly emails you even though you've never seen her before or written to her.She'll just say "Hi, I saw your profile at the agency and you seem like the perfect man for me..." (but failing to identify the agency).
OR, a man pursues a woman, maybe even sponsors her for a fiancee visa, or even marries her, then after she is here in the U. Or she may have come over with sincere motives but grew very unhappy in the marriage, and maybe that was at least partly the man's fault (and everyone ASSUMES all along she planned to use the man to get to the U. A "scam", at least by my definition, involves INTENTIONAL DECEPTION FOR THE PURPOSE OF FINANCIAL PROFIT.
All true Russian dating scams are about tricking you out of your money, so as long as YOU control how and where your money is spent, you won't be scammed.
Avoiding Russian Women Scams is my best one-page guide on how to avoid being scammed.
These scams are lucrative mostly because they prey upon distance and anonymity.
Since a large percentage of men who visit these sites never actually end up making a trip, the agencies can really rake it in without getting caught.
