Dont fall for it. move on....
What to discuss about ;-)
If you have doubts, don?t invite her.
Go to Russia, visit her, make you sure about her?
And, if all is ok, her visit to you can be a next step ;-)
I am Russian and lived in Mexico for more than 20 years; back then we were not considered scams or hookers, and most of us are still not either of these. I am a highly educated professional woman with my own business. And to all those whiners: why don't you look at the photos of other women posted on this website. What is that they are offering? Family values or sirituality? Guess not!! What are you, American guys, ask for? All we read from you is "curvy, sexy, hot". So, if this is what you want, pay for it, whether she is Russian, French or Chinese. You only get what you ask for
I appreciate with your opinion regarding travel and visit to one country that say freedom to all with democracy. Why dont u come and visit my place and u will find something new and interesting here....
I think most men who search for love in foreign countries have been burned too many times with American women. My experience leads me to believe that most American women are star struck and want the youngest , best looking with the most money, especially in the Midwest. I have found very few women on this system from America who are sincere and genuine. That is not to say that there are not good women from America on here but they few and far between...
The solution is easy.Why don't you men stick to american women?You don't want a golddigger and you want someone who is real.You know the answer to the question already.These women are nothing more than scam artist and users, yet you think the women here play games.Hello.....
I can tell you that I have had similar experiences with women from Russia, the Ukraine and even Africa. They ALL were scams!!! Be very careful and never send money, offer to go visit them but do not go alone, ever!!! It is virtually impossible for women to obtain a visa to come to the USA. There are so many hoops, mostly financial, that they must jump through before being permitted to leave their country. Even if you pay for her travel expenses, it will not be enough because she must have at least 2 months living expenses in her own bank account. If you have questions, contact their embassy for the correct information and they will even verify the identity of the woman for you.
To karla241 :
Thank you girl!!
To OTHERS with doubt of "bad Russian girls? ALL of you on "million dollar site" and cannot AFFORD to hire investigator for $40.00????!!!! Find out if she the person who she is.. THAN talk, and dont ask stupid question about visa or ticket? ok?
Oh! BTW ..before to put a claim on ALL GIRLS- research economy of those countries.. how many people have job and how much they pay them. DID you ever wonder how much ticket cost from Russia to US.. let say roughly 2500.00 plus hotel( or u expect her to pay for hotel too in your city/town and invite you there? cz you invite her to America!!!)
another one .. her salary ..no more than $300.00 per month.. dont forget.. she have to eat and pay bills.. also she would love to buy a expensive clothes (we dont have
Wal-Mart ok?) to see you in America-Got the point?
Stop talking bad about russian-ukrainian girls- if you not want them- dont contact them! obviously you know they are best women in the world!
no women in the any end of the world want insecure men!
We have words in my country: -afraid of wolf- do NOT go to forest!
yourinspiration (28, Tokyo, Japan )
... one more thing:
i heard a cry- he got her here and after a year (1 year for green card) she left him.. she got what she want and gone!! WRONG!!
Women (no matter where she come from Russia or she local) never leave good husband only bastard.. If you treat her not well, treat her as she has to kiss steps where you walk- just because you took her from THERE...good for her that she left you!!!
Second of all.. Imagine yourself living there.. Different culture,, different language ..no relatives no friends (for the reason above)how would u act or behave? eh?!
I came here in 1989.. AND I had relatives and have friends here. I could talk with them on daily basis.. BUT ..1st 2 years I hated here (no I wasn?t order bride and not needed anyone to "save" me) now I love it.. and would stay here forever.
For all russian girls Americans are mystaries to find sole inside their commuphlage heart. Think that IN Russia if a men couldn't revial his tru identtity he is not worthy, In US first impression is far from reality. And than u spend at least 20 dayts be sexy digging inside u lover to find out that at time he eat from u plate and wipe on your dress shoting he want to marry you.
To all u americans Russian girl will never love u unless she swap you from damster and bring to her loving home. Pride is God to that nation its how they grow.A russian man never overpower women he want to fall in love I am a model and live in US for 15 years every men slaving himself for me but I dint find lovable creature yet. I think american men is lazy for love-something they want to take in grave with themselfs. Shame. I HAVE SO MUCH TO OFFER, I DONT FELL NEEDED LOVE IS NOT EXIST U.S. All russian girls feels like they are GODDESS and want to bring magic in ONEs life instead they hear We have freedom of religion only offer we exsept u body, BUT IN R.G. MIND IS ALWAYS a russian guy. Magic can only happen with magic U NEED SOMEONE TO SPARKL it. Unless u are migitian didnt even get close and about poor girls in russia Even if girl have money for ticket she will spend it on shoes and american marriage always be like business opportunity. U WILL SEE HER FADE AND SOON she be will like any other american girl shy,fat,speechless.
Its like panda creature u buy it feeded with special unique life style to keep it species survive. If u want to experience A REAL RUSSIAN GIRL FANTASY u need to travel and enjoy her where she feels safe and secure.****AND MAYBE SHE WILL FALL in love with u.
And for me only joy i have in U.S. is shopping. Trully, russian guys in America are sockers.They aren't tastfull as bubble gum.
ok, shortly: I'm am russian, and I can effort the tickets and the hotel as well as many of us regardless what lie CNN says to the inocent. But tell me why on earth should I fly over US to the gui I've never seen, pass all the humiliative procedures in the embassy suspecting me to be whatever bad, have all the expenses... This is just not healthy-all I can say. There are two reasons why I think a man should come to see me in Russia or Japan first: 1-he is a gentleman,otherwise I don't need him,2-it is much easier for him with visas and air tickets discounts. To your reference: there are no discounts for Russia, plus in a travel agency they will make you buy an expesive hotel at triple price!A girl would have to buy something like Hilton for the Grand Hyatts prise! So if for you to come to Russia is about 2.000$, for me to come to US is at least 7.000$ than. So, why it should be me who come first?Who of us is a man? Or are you that miserable? Or think it is woman who should always pay more? Who is scam in that case? But if she looses the interest after you offer her to ttravel to her country,that's scam clearly, forget herr than.
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.
