Internet dating scams from russia dating profile catchlines
You would be wasting your time, and maybe even getting attached to that person, making plans, just to discover later that she is a scammer. Most of the Russian scam generates from the same source: Mari El.
Embassy has no way of obtaining your money for you. I would like to bring my Russian girlfriend to the United States to visit and she says I must wire her the money for a ticket. If I send the money to the Embassy, can you buy the ticket for her?
My Russian girlfriend wants to come visit me but says that she must purchase insurance and have $300.00 in cash to show she can afford to travel. The woman I'm writing to says that she needs $1,000.00 to show for "pocket" money or the airline won't let her board the plane. There are no Russian or American customs or airline regulations requiring travelers show proof of income or pocket money to travel to the United States.8.

) Just like the Nigerian letter scams and the fake lotteries, there is often no real woman wanting to meet you; it is just a scam to get you to send money (for many different reasons: translations, agency commissions, to pay fees, sick brother, etc) or airline tickets.
Not to be confused with all those thousands of profiles that say they are from "Kazan"!!
