If she’s a scammer, don’t be surprised if her questions are aimed at getting some personal information from you, such as your income, family, or property. If the profile of a woman who writes to you first contains too little information about her, odds are she is a scammer.
A serious woman who is looking for a life partner will fill in each required field in order to give a man a general idea of what kind of person she is.
She praises and compliments him extensively, tells him how good she is, and doesn’t forget to mention how hard the life in Russia is.
Gradually, there comes the moment when she tells a sad story to evoke his sympathy and after that asks him to help her financially.
A man feels like he is the only one who can help her and sends the requested sum without any suspicion.
The excuses for requesting money can vary but the pattern is always the same: a scammer establishes trust, declares her love, manipulates her victim’s feelings, asks to send her some money, and disappears once she gets what she wanted.
From this moment on, she does everything to make him fall in love with her.
For this, she’ll flood you with compliments and flattery and then declare her love for you.
She will make such a confession already in the second letter or will wait for several weeks. One of the most obvious signs that you’re dealing with a scammer is that you only exchange letters and never get in touch via video calls.
But you should know that it’s uncommon for Russian women to profess their love for a man too soon. So, if you want to know for sure that your Russian date is a real woman with serious intentions, just offer her to talk via Skype.
A scammer will find different excuses just to get out of having a video chat.
