    Default Are you being scammed?

    I know they are beautiful. But most are trying to get out of Russia and they see Americans as "dumb" Don't prove them right.

    If they are asking for money, even small amounts, move on. That's your red flag. This whole thing is turned into a business in Russia.
    The chances of any of these ladies falling in love with you are pretty dim. To most of them you're a free green card and ticket to America. That's the reality. Now, to avoid being scammed, you need to find the exceptions. First rule is, find someone who has at least enough money to pay for their airfare and entry into the U.S. Tell them you will pay them back AFTER they arrive here. Don't send any money. Be smart. Think with your right head or your will be another statistic.

    There are sincere ladies in Russia but you can count on the fact taht a good 80% are just trying to get out. If you're 50 and your lady is 21, red flag. If you're 65 and your lady is 30. Red flag. 10 years apart is where you should probably draw the line.

    If they claim they are physicians, etc. verify it. Verify everything they say and never send any money.
    Spend some time in Russia. Russians are pretty smart people and if you snooze on sharpening your B.S. detector, you will lose.

    Only use reliable, genuine dating sites. If the girls sounds too good to be true, she probably is. Quit thinking about how beautiful she is and the fireworks during your honey moon with her. Think about what she's saying to you and what she's asking for.

    IF you're calling her more than she's calling you, trouble.

    Put yourself in their place and ask: If I were a beautiful russian woman, what would I tell these American guys?"
    Answer: what you want to hear. Psychology 101.

    I hope this helps you avoid not only a broken heart, but also protect your wallet. Remember: if they can't afford a plane ticket, they can't afford to have you. Most sob stories are just that, sob stories. DOn't fall for it. Offer to refund any money they invest to come meet the man of their dreams. You will notice that the cons will not answer your emails anymore and they will realize they are dealing with a smart guy. End of story. Only Fools rush in, as the song goes.

    To Elena, keep up the great work. There are many people who appreciate your efforts, but we don't always speak up loudly.
    Yeah, at one time she emptied wallets to eat pizza (wonder what kind of pizza you can eat for 1K per month), then has repented and began to scam again... only by other way

    Ah, and what would she do if she met someone older than her husband who offer her a monthly supporting with 1200$

    as for you babe? I also appreciate your efforts to boost Elena's business as you earn on it. Such double standards: to fight against scammers, scamming others.

    Isuccess is right on. Educate yourselves and investigate. It should take at least several months (3-6) before you start feeling a genuine love between each other, if the woman is serious and sincere. Most want let 2-4 weeks pass by before they are madly in love wiht you and they can not breathe without you. Again, just use your brain. If it doesn't fit right, then it's a scam.

    Babe_, apparently, you have been making money (or something) off my agency without you or I even knowing it (or at least me for sure).

    I am not sure about this Jag guy. I think he has issues that a little online chat will not fix.

    some good points by different sides but, with all due respect:

    a: what makes americans think that everybody wants to live there? i don't. do not even want to visit on holiday!!!!! from what i have seen on the telly (american movies, fox news, series tv) no thanks.

    b: let us imagine a scenario. you are 45. she is 38. not a big age difference. you write to each other 3 months. you make plans to meet. you travel to russia. you take a 15 hour train to where she lives. knock on the door. Yuri replies "thank you for brining the money to my door" and shows you an AK47. It can happen!!!

    c: do you think it is only thailand where parents sell their children?

    i think there is too much paranoia. chill out guys/gals. use your heads. think logic.

    i am going to meet a woman and her kid later on this year. she was on about visiting me. i said ok. give me the date. i booked the tickets, booked the hotel (we are meeting in malta as it is a lot easier to get a visa for there). paid with my credit card. asked her for the address and will post the tickets to her. told her nearer the date will send her US$100 for the train and taxi fare. that is it!!!!

    she is getting a free holiday. i am meeting her. if we like each other then i will visit her in russia.

    to all russian scammers: i am somewhat of a bullshi*ter myself but i do like to listen to a professional. please carry on

    Over 1K was not for 1 month, you silly. We waited for the paperwork for about 8.5 month. He would send me 120-200 per months for English classes mainly (and whatever was left I could use for my own stuff).

    C'mon, enough grumbling. Come have some pizza crust (my puppy loves them, you should try it)
