Russian dating site gay men
Most scammers ask money for one or more of the following: - passport, visa, tickets - travel insurance - fines for failing to officially register their stay in Moscow - financial solvency money ("pocket money," "travel money," "money to show to the customs," "money to show to the Embassy") - money to pay off a loan or a mortgage - sale taxes on the her apartment - emergency medical expenses for the girl or her relatives (illness, car accident, death in the family) - bail money / to pay fines for minor "accidental" violations of the law - taxes supposedly owed on the previous money transfers - money to replace stolen funds - ransom money / financial debt to mafia - presents for herself and her family at holiday times - luxury items (cell phones, clothes, etc) What the victim of the scam never realizes, however, is that behind all the seductive pictures and behind all the warm and passionate letters hides a cynical, manipulative, and sleek mastermind of the crime - a cyber thief of hearts and wallets.
And this mastermind is not at all who you think (s)he is... A scammer usually finds a set of pictures of an attractive girl 18-45 years old female (or, if the scammer IS an attractive girl, she uses her own pictures) and places personal ads in as many international dating catalogs as possible.
She will be all bubbly and excited about the opportunity.
She will explain in detail how much it will cost to get the visa and the tickets, and how to send the necessary amount to get things going.
To speed up the process, the scammer "falls in love" with each of the potential victims literally within two to six weeks.
Some scammers fall in love and ask for money within 10 days, while others may correspond for 6-8 months before requesting any money.The duration of the phase depends on the scammer's own work style.The longer the set up phase, the higher is the scammer's probability of success in obtaining the money."She" will get robbed or attacked, may become injured or sick, may suddenly get arrested, or her apartment may get flooded or burned.The scam will go on for as long as the guy is willing to continue sending money to help his "Russian princess" to get through her never-ending travel misadventure.
