Russian dating spam email
Another source is in Lugansk and Donetsk (in spite of the war going over there, believe it or not! In most cases you can tell that the girl is a scammer just by looking at her profile. Most scammy profiles start with words "I the sociable girl", "I the cheerful girl", or whatever, with "am" omitted.
), but those are usually easy to detect as they mostly use the modeling pictures, or just "too good to be true" type of pics. Or, if it says "To me of 25 years", or whatever age, but that weird phrase "to me of xx years" or "me of xx years". Believe my experience, each and every profile that started with this particular cliche and had this grammar mistake, later turned out to be a scam.
If any American girl put in her profile that "she searches for love online because everybody around her is a drug addict" what would you think about such girl?! I never saw any normal Russian girl putting something like that in her profile. Most of the scam originates from Mari El (the capital city is Yoshkar Ola, or Yoshka), but they very rarely put in their profiles that they are really from Mari El or Yoshkar Ola. But when you look at all those Russian profiles, it seems like most people in Russia live in Kazan, Kirov or Cheboksary! Another important point I need to make about location.
Don't ask me why they are putting this in their profiles!!! Or maybe they use some absolutely weird translator that translates the phrase like that?
Or maybe they have some "profile writer" in their "staff" who writes it? There is nothing wrong with making mistakes when it is not your native language.
Of course you can just wait and see if she asks you for money.
But you probably don't want to get to the point when she actually starts asking for money, right? So, here it goes: Russian scam is fairly easy to detect by IP address.
