Scammers use any weakness they find to their advantage.
It's the newest evolution of the Nigerian advance fee (419) scam.
The postings from Ukraine, in particular Lugansk are a mine field of scam profiles. I became suspicious after her response telling me that she had not corresponded with anyone else before and that I should ask her what ever I wanted to know, because she was new to this, assuring me that she was an honest person and would only answer honestly no matter what.
The agency of Translation will contact you with your first or second letter requesting money for translations. I have hit on several, mostly for fun after I was taken the first time. So after a second response from her with no answers to the questions I had asked and after reading your site I decided to try something to see if she was genuine.
This could be a person’s first name, a website address, the name of a company, even an email address.
This list will be formally known as The Scammers Lists.
Even though we received fewer messages compared to other sites, we rated 40 percent “good” — the most out of the seven sites we tested.
That’s in large part because only mutual matches can message each other: both parties have to “swipe right” before they can say hello, which cuts way down on spam.
I would like to warn other men about a woman, Elena Kiseleva, from Kremenchug in the Ukraine.
In February of 2000 I went to Kremenchug after corresponding with Elena for 4 months and had a great time while I was there. I started the finance process and everything was going fast and fine but then when the embassy in Warsaw got the application she started making excuses to wait, her ex-husband wanted to take the kid on holiday then the place she applied for a visa stole her money then she had to find her father that after I sent 150 dollars 3 different times through western union then she quit writing and I gave up trying to contact her but I did not give up on the idea of getting a Russian bride I just picked the wrong one so I joined and I ran across Elena's profile there and it had been there since she was writing to me her kiss number is 2676639 and she also used the name Elena Trocenko.
She sends the same letters to everyone, in the last one I and My other name were sent an address , which is a P. box in Odessa and a telephone number for her "Mobile Phone " .
