A scam may be performed by a loner or group of well organized criminals.
He/they may rent apartments, mobile phones and postal boxes solely for the aim of scams, as well as use innocent people to receive money transfers, giving them a false reason why they cannot receive the transfer themselves (lost passport, he already received too many transfers that can cause tax problems, etc).
In the end the foreigner learns that his beautiful Elena turned out to be a bearded Boris, but most likely the ill-starred foreigner will blame heartless rus sian women for everything.
) an amorous foreigner will send the "Princess" a couple of thousand bucks, so that she could buy a ticket and they could live happily together.
1- Creation of a test account As I’m writing this, today is Sunday, 3rd of August 2014. I filled out some details about a fictional character named Thierry, aged 45, divorced, two children (15 and 12) who live with him every other week.
I added the following text: Hello I’m a french citizen. I deleted one previously because the woman could be my mother and was obese, obviously not a scammer but I did not want to display her face there.
So all means and different tactics that scammers use will eventually lead to a situation where you are to give some amount of money to the dubious person.
The possible reasons for the money transfer can vary, from payment for email or buying ticket to visit You, to renting apartments for your future visit or paying for urgent operation for "her child".
Oh, by the way, there are other websites from the same company and there’s no reason to believe that what applies to one does not apply to the others.
Usually you will be asked to transfer some amount via Western Union - the organization that provides cash transfers to any country in the world and money can be picked up immediately.
The transferred amount cannot be refunded, even if you paid by credit card.
I will subscribe to the site if I like your profile. In 4 hours, my profile without photo received marks of attention from 4 women. Out of these 4 persons, only one actually looked at my profile. Of course she did not look at my profile, but.a minute, she’s sending me an email. The profile is nearly empty, but if that person is real at least she does not live in the Moscow area like the person who wrote me: she’s from Novokuznetsk, a 4 hours and 40 minutes flight from Moscow. As for the other one who sent me an email, which I could read because she’s a Gold Member, she even GAVE ME her email address. Particularly an attractive 27 years old girl from Russia. I spent thousands of hours on stupid dating sites ridden with scammers. The one thing Russian women hate the most are womanizers, because it’s a local habit for men to cheat on women. As usual, these two girls are Gold or Platinum and they are NEW users. Because someone will report them and the team at Russian Cupid will close the account. Girls have to prove first that they are real, through a phone call by a support system member. I HATE losing time with ukrainians mafiaboys who think they are clever. After checking out her image on Google Image I find that she’s registered on 3 other sites since December 2013.
Not older than 40 please, unless you are spectacular. A 30 years-old, 5 feet tall girl from Romania without pictures. I just received an interest from this gorgeous lady. And it’s not surprising : given the fact that you can open an account in 5 minutes there, and the profile verification is just a simple step… So it does not matter if you are good looking : the word “womanizer” acts as a repellent. So they have to move fast and get your email address as soon as possible. So from now it is clear : the reasons why I left Russian Cupid in 2009 are still here ! They just want to charge gullible Western guys for corresponding with fake profiles. If you want a real dating website for Ukrainian or Russian models, I suggest you use Elena Models. I look into my gmail inbox and I found the following : in 2 days, I have been contacted by 24 fake profiles. She’s not attractive, which could explain why she subscribed for a gold pack.
