One of the cases was by elderly woman in Varna who spent her live working as "woman for hire by the hour" abroad and now returned to the country where she was born and tries to scam men on internet.She is a criminal individual and we advice caution.Sometimes the full correspondence prior to last email of actual scaming and asking for money is from a different IP, but when it comes to taking actual money then most of the victims of the so called "russian women" scam can be traced to locations of Mari El.That is definite proof that it is all organized crime. The Nigerian scam gang can also be very easily traced in the same way - all profiles created from similar IP addresses, using photos of celebrities for the fake profiles, similar profile texts, etc Bulgarian scam We are sad to add this new section to our antiscam information.
- America is relatively far from Russia and Africa in both geographical and cultural sense, and that makes it a bit easier to make an american man believe that although he is 54 this young, gorgeous goddess, is falling so madly in love with him after seeing just 1 photo of him and knowing absolutely nothing about him. This is a misconception as the profiles that are created are fictitious and could be created by anybody. There are very few independent female scammers in Russia. Yes, most of the cheated victims are men, definitely, but not always - first of all there are women who get cheated by the African bouncing check scams, and secondly there are women who get cheated by dishonest men, who talk about love and romance but in reality are just cunning sex-tourists. On the contrary, you are safer online than in a bar because you have control of the situation and can make informed decisions.
5) Although there are scam-free dating websites, never forget it is mainly you who has to be alert and use common sense and discrimination in order to stay away from scam.
