Russian bride scams are unfortunately another way
people are cashing in on the internet. It is sad that this works only
because someone is preying on a "victim's" emotions, in this case a
man, who is looking for a "partner" and probably is often on the
rebound from a break up or divorce.
Here's how this Russian bride scam works:
You may be signed up on a personals site where
your profile is listed and you are looking to meet someone. You receive
an e-mail that is from a Russian name. Their profile is listed as
deleted, but they do send you their personal e-mail in their e-mail to
You may or may not respond. If you do, you will
get various e-mails stating how much they are in love with you, and
that they cannot live without you. They also send very nice pictures of
Eventually they want to be with you, and they
claim they can't afford the $400 fee for a passport or visa. They even
give you the exact address where you can send them money or your credit
Russian bride scams are out there and I am sure
many men respond. I received one of these my self on Yahoo personals
and I responded just out of curiosity. I figured I would review the
results and offer this information to you once I determine whether it
was a scam or not.
What was really crazy is I received a second such
initial e-mail from another Russian bride. That e-mail was IDENTICAL to
the first and from a "different" girl. I even realized after a while
that the responses to my replies were not "in sync" with what I wrote
back, so I beleive this is a fully automated phishing scam. The e-mails
are sent automatically. The "broken English" manner in which this is
written makes you think they are not understanding you so you let that
slide , because of course you are infatuated with this new found
beautiful lady.I am sure eventually some men will send the cash. Yes,
they do suggest cash!
Sadly this is the truth on this scam. Many
legitimate Russian Bride sites offer additional information so you
don't fall victim to a scamming Russian bride. There are also sites
with lists of known Russian bride scam artists.
I should note that my heritage is part Russian,
and I met some very wonderful and hard working Russian people in recent
years. It is unfortunate that this Russian bride scam occurs, as it is
very likey not even a Russian on the other end of the e-mail.
