Who hope solo dating

16-Feb-2020 12:56

You come across a profile of a young, attractive woman on an online dating site or maybe she contacts you.

The photos are stunning, perhaps professionally taken or provocative, but the description of what she's looking for in a partner is vague.

They do not ask for money for a ticket or visa but instead send you a scanned visa as “proof”.

Scammers use services like Western Union because it is all but impossible to track the recipient of the money which can be picked up anywhere in the world.

But rest assured, once you send that money that is the last you will hear from her.

If you are seeing a Russian woman and are keen on meeting her, it is always wiser for you to go visit them instead of inviting them to visit you.

This ploy also relies on the stereotypical assumption that all Russian and Eastern European women want to move to or visit America, Canada, the UK or Australia which simply isn't the case.

With many people catching on to this scam, the scammers have “improvised” their story a little.

A scammer could be a man or woman operating solo, posing as an attractive young lady, or part of an organized scamming operation.
