Dating scammer from russia adult singles dating mosher south dakota
We hope this information will help you not fall into a fraud trap.
Although your lady friend might have some legitimate reasons not to invite you to her home-country (and we hope the reason is not already having a husband at home or not even being a woman you think you are corresponding with) it should still raise a red flag for you.
In most cases we deal with happy couples longing to see each other, however, we do get occasional phone calls from frustrated grooms whose "dream girl" turned out to be a scammer.
Signs that you might be scammed: From our experience we should warn you that anyone can become a victim of a scam.
Do not send her any money, offer to buy her a ticket instead. Even if she writes to you that an airline ticket would cost two or three times less in Russia (which is questionable) , do not send her the money! Most likely you are being set up for a "visa and tickets scam" when a bride asks you for money to pay for her tickets and visa and then disappears once she gets it. Ask her to provide more details on the University that she is going to come to study at, and then contact that University.
We suggest you check with your country's Embassy to see how easy it would be for her to get a tourist visa to your country. If they have some kind of a student exchange program in place, they will be happy to tell you about it.
When it comes to matters of the heart even the most brilliant man can be tricked if he is not informed on tactics used by scammers.
We have compiled a list of possible scam-scenarios we hear most often from our clients looking for a life-partner abroad.
The advantages of online dating are numerous: it's cheaper than going out to fancy restaurants or clubs, there are never "bad hair" or "nothing to wear" days on your first date, and if the date goes sour it is much easier to withdraw from an embarrassing situation by just clicking an "off" button.Also, you can contact the Embassy that issued that visa to confirm its validity.
