I was contacted on a different dating site by a woman or by someone posing as a Russian woman. I was pretty suspicious because she was drop dead gorgeous, 32 years younger than me and promising me undying love and fidelity after one email. I googled her email address and typed in scam. Sure enough I found websites that listed hundreds of addresses of these scammers. Basically they claim to be coming to visit you. At the last minute they either have their wallet stolen or claim they need money for a visa. Gullible men send money to a travel agency in Russia then never hear from the woman again. I really doubt that it is the actual woman in the picture who is doing the scamming, it could be anyone. Google has the answers if you just take the time to take a look.
Many Russian professionals like doctors, teachers don't make enough money even for living not to say about travel. Why on the Earth they would buy a ticket and visa to starve then for a year? It's hillarious when people discuss something they have no idea of
I can tell you that most Russian women asking money for visa, passport, air ticket are scams. That is the sad reality. I don't know how you met her, but it's better to go through an agency that can check her out. Also, you can send her flowers or a letter and determine if she has a real address. And you can try to talk to her over the phone. If you have done all that and it checks out, I would go there. there are also several agencies (mini detective type firms) that can check her out for a small fee. That could save you a lot of money in the long run. How do I know all this. I was scammed. You can also check her out on the fraud lists for Russian woman. Also, if she gets a visa as many are counterfits, you can email the U.S. embassy and they will tell you by the serial number if the visa is valid.
Unfortunately it is true,girl from Russia cannt afford no ticket,no visa ,no hotel spending.She reALLY NEEDS TO BE LUCKY TO GET A GOODHEARTED MAN TO ESCAPE HER .WE are happy to live in America,the best country in a world.
I also can't imagine a Russian nowdays who can't afford 700 or 900 dollars airticket. It's just stupid. not too much money for happy trial. And visa in total is about 150 dollars. Forget her. She will bring you a lot of trouble in future.
fitnfla write: how does one protect themselves from a scam. i hav a lady from russia who wants to come visit me. she wants me to pay for here vis and travel ticket. how do i know its for real and wont get scammed. what can i do to protect myself.
just say know ha ha, everyone wants a green card ...
If you really like her, I guess you can buy her airline ticket. I cannot imaging that she will not be able to pay for her visa.... It is strange, though that you were asked for money upfront... If she will not be able to get a visitor's visa (which is not easy), then she doesn't need a ticket. It is helpfull to have airline ticket when she goes to the american embassy (does not guarantee the visa), but you probably could just do some kind of reservation, so if you need to cancell it, you will not loose a lot of money...
Feel free to contact me if you need more help or info....
I must say that I am so grateful to you for such words you have said here on protection of Russian women - from kind and warm, human been heart. We all are the same in the world, but our condition of living are different. All of us want to love and be loved, to be happy, fullfilled and secure in our personal life. I am feeling sorry for those people who are first looking for worse in the person with whom he potentially are planning to create a serious relations - as really strong relationship is based on mutual trust and care. I will tell that I had a sad experience with Western man for whom I paid as he promissed to give me money back and it did not happen eventually - so, what? it was his problem of personality - not mine. But I still believe in people and that there are genuine men are existing. Thank you very much again - for words of fairness and for bright heart. I wish you to find in life great happiness in everything. Irina. Moscow
In regards to "all russian gals are scams". I got the feeling that all of this hate, heat and stinky dirt flying around cause they are Russians; if those gals were from China or Spain or ect else then some of you will go much easier. Let me remind you that 95% of you have a true Russian roots, mostly from Ukraine or Belaruss and so on.Talk to your grand or grand-grand parents if they care to take a honest pride that they came from the country with richest culture and history ever. That's one. Second, I have many stories when spanik and china gals are fishing a wealthy men around the world and sure giving them hell of the hard time, leaving them with nothing, but their socks.That's second. No one knows that? I'm sure you do. Third, our tv movies american made showing us all including our kids examples of createst american made and born scams - familiar with famous "american phyco"? or "inside man"? or "thelma and loiuse"? and millions more even better some of them are based on a true stories- what is that compare to one poor Russian gal that could not afford to buy herself a ticket to experience our " BIG american dream". I just feel sorry for her since she got involved with such unsecure man.Gosh! No one knows the gal, however she already got smush to deads-- shame on you people:( So far as classic goes: from Russia with LOVE- so be it!
Do you guis know how many ladyes went abroad for their own money and did not meet amyone it the best case, and got into trouble in the usual one? Why doe's not enyone talk about this? Or should I create a topic:"from US with what"for example,where the unpleasant truth would be discussed that it's only russias that don't waste time for internet games because still have healthy mind?That russian women are not used to perverts and don't expect a man to be one.
The truth is that we - Russian women, we are still femminine and we love to be spoiled and we want to see in the beginning that a man is taking care about us. That is our menthality that will never change. And therefore we are so much loved by real men. So you have to enjoy to take care of your woman if you want she will be always beautiful and proud of her man.
I live 10 years in Italy and I can tell you that my menthality didn't change and will never change. I want to be a woman always. And I am a dream of many men here because I am a woman. And not a woman with balls.
And that doesn't mean I don't know what is business. I know to sleep 2 hours in 24 hours and I know to be strong for protection of my business. But believe me it's a problem for a woman to be in business without a man. Because men cannot think about business, they are thinking about that beautiful sweet hot lady. So what sense if a woman is successful in business without her man? I think it's better to share one business and love together having passion in love and passion in business. The ticket is nothing comparing with your future with your woman... And you are an conquistator in that case as many-many centuries exists... Just remember that you are a man.
let me tell you my story.An american-greec man have been talking to me on the phone for 6 month every day 1 hour in the morning on 1 hour in the evening when I was in Russia.(i'm russian-japanese and have relatives in Rusia).I invited him to Russia,he refused many times and insisted me to come to Greece. Insisted to pay for my tickets,called to a russian travel agency many times. when it came to the payment he talled me he was sending money to the agency,again and again.And When I go to the agency or call they show the politiness in to hide the annoyance,say they did not receive anymoney.Finally he sent money to a wrong account(on purpose),and sent a bank payment document to me,To show that"he payed".So his money got back to him. Hi did it all for his self-intertainment, for some pervertic joy,and out of being a pityful coward.For me it was:spoiled nervs,as I was embarassed in the agency because they thought it was me who was playing, big annoyance as I new from the early begining that he was playing.The only thing I could not understand why is a person can spend lots of money for the phone-calls(I was in Russian FarEast,in the boarder with Japan,really far away from US),2hours dayly on the phone for 6 month is equal to 20 return tickets to Greece.I suspected that even this fact didn't logically lead to"he was serious".Because I've been around and know that only russian coulture "I will do it"means I will do it.In other coulters "I will do it" does not mean anything.It can only mean some meaningless game.But he insisted asking me to come to the agency again and again,to change a hotel or an islan,so on.Just Imagin:I was exremely annoyed after such a long time of dealing witha "neverman"+ the agency tryed to pinalise me,because they already booked the hotels on the islands on my name impossible to cancel.So, who is a scam? What did i do wrong?I invited him to russia, he refused,I connected him with the agency never asking to send money to me, and what finally?
To all of you guis. Noticed one thing: those who visited Russia say only god things and all the stupid stuff is coming from people who has no idea about this country or the loosers who only visited the worse places in Russia and dated the low class girls because that's all they can get and efford.And also:similar things attract each other. Means you must have something similar inside,may be affraid to realise. And..let me see who else..oh! sure!-english girls! Ever won "miss universe"?Or ever been famus for being smart ? As for as I heared from the travellers from all over the warld you guis are famous for differnt stuff, and that's not good fame. Sorry to say the trooth.
CoolVegasGuy write: If you like her, don't be cheap...Invest a couple grand into her ticket and see what happens....If it works, then great...If not, then you are out a few steak dinners....big deal..., right..?
And if you like her enough to bring her here, then if it doesn't work out, the $2000 for the plane will be the part that you are the least upset about, anyways...
Why on earth should you buy her the plane tickets?? Let her work and save. Don't nourish the scam and it may disappear sooner or later.
