Scam russian dating services
Never re-ship anything for strangers, especially to Africa.There is a reason why online merchants usually don't ship there.Women are usually nurses, models, charity or UNICEF workers or antique dealers.After they establish some lovely correspondence with you, fall in love and maybe even send a couple of cheap presents, they will either: a) be almost on their way to meet you, but something will happen to them: they will get robbed, beaten, get into the hospital, or other misfortune will happen and of course you will be their only contact to ask for financial help, or: b) tell you that their employer pays them with Money Orders or checks, and they can't cash them in Nigeria.
They pretend to be the foreign specialists working in Nigeria or Ghana (usually originally from US and UK, but it may also be Canada, Australia or any other European country).
As Svetlana Mukha, a founder and leading matchmaker at diolli.com, mentioned in her interview, some men just want to become a scam victim (I have no idea why, it might be a topic for my next article…).
So that’s why I decided to help those men and give some advice how to get scammed by Ukrainian and Russian online dating fraud.
Needless to say, those Money Orders or checks are no good, and not even worth the paper they're printed on.
If you cash them or deposit them into your account, Money Orders or checks will come back after few weeks as fraudulent and you will be responsible for paying back the money to the bank and sometimes even charged for passing counterfeit instrument.
