How to avoid russian dating scams

26 Apr

Internet dating is a perfectly legitimate means of forming relationships.

However, it is important that users only go through reputable and secure dating agencies that protect the privacy of their clients.

I don’t want to live in Russia because I have not any chances here, it is hardly possible to explain from first time but I want you to know my plans.

I will work in any shop, bar or restaurant the agency that i am going through will suggest me some locations.

I have received dozens of these emails over the last few weeks, both directly from scammers and as submissions from site visitors. Will send some of my pictures To some, more naive recipients, the messages may seem genuine since, unlike most spam email, they do not contain a link to a website and do not appear to be selling or promoting anything.

An example of one of the messages is included below: Subject: Can we talk? However, as with typical advance fee and lottery scams, the messages are simply ruses designed to entice potential victims into making contact with the scammer.

These scammers have a sizable pool of photographs that they regularly recycle for use in scam messages.

A common variant of these spam emails is a brief message in which the “nice girl” purporting to be the sender promises to send pictures if her recipient will reply to a specified email address. Email me at [address removed] only, because I am writing not from my personal email.As with other kinds of scam emails, it is best to delete these messages without replying.While online dating sites work hard to eliminate scammers from their sites, unfortunately some continue to be very deceptive and get past the fraud checks so it is important to be aware of what a potential scammer might attempt to do.Alternatively, she may ask for financial help due to a family medical emergency or any number of other bogus excuses.Of course, “Marina” has no intention of pursuing a relationship with her victim, nor will she ever come to visit him.
