Dating scams

by Olga on December 25, 2010

Recently I received several letters from a foreign man who asked for advice on relationship with a Russian girlfriend. She was from Yoshkar-Ola. After some correspondence I understood that he was a scammer victim. I came upon information on Internet that a leader of one of the largest scam groups in Yoshkar-Ola was arrested and several groups of scammers have been caught.

However, the business is still alive. Yoshkar-Ola is known as the main Russian center for dating scams. The scheme of a scam is simple. Organized groups trying to scam money post introduction profiles on different sites, use photos of incredibly beautiful women, and write letters of love from their name to the potential foreign bridegrooms. The relationship progresses quickly. Gullible grooms regularly send money to fiancé for visa, tickets, insurance, learning English, as well as for their troubles and troubles of their relatives. Receiving the money leads to an end of any further communication.

What can you do?
If you meet the girl of your dreams on Internet, try to get more information about your charming acquaintance and instead of sending money visit her home city and meet her there.
If you are a victim of scam, please contact the official authorities otherwise how they are able to prosecute scammers.

Yoskar Ola (Mari El) is becoming as
notorious as Nigeria for on-line scams.
They will perhaps move to another area
and begin anew?

Richard, other cities have their own scammers. They can use some peace of Yoshkar-Ola glory and claim that they are from that very city.)
