Dating emails in russia and argentina

She professes her love and gives instructions to send money through Western Union or Money Gram.

This is a broad example of Russian online dating scams.

The photos are stunning, perhaps professionally taken or provocative, but the description of what she's looking for in a partner is vague.

It could be a scammer, often a man, using photos downloaded from the internet in the hope of sucking in as many victims as possible.

There are many variations of online dating scams originating in Russia and Eastern Europe but they have in common a high emotional and financial cost to unsuspecting scam victims.

Typically, a man comes into contact with a scammer through an online dating agency.

The scammer will have photos showing a young and attractive woman though her profile may say she’s from America or England.

She will then ask you to send her money for her plane ticket and/or visa.

This ploy also relies on the stereotypical assumption that all Russian and Eastern European women want to move to or visit America, Canada, the UK or Australia which simply isn't the case.
