Russian and ukrainian dating scammers
She may have nothing to do with a scammer who just happened to have the same first and last name.Check whether the pictures and other biographical information match as well.Step 3: if nothing helps, manually go to 5 or 6 and look through reports and photos posted there. In fact, I would estimate that over 70% of scammers ARE NOT reported online, because people who got scammed often do not know that black lists exist, or how to use them.Maybe you will find her picture posted online somewhere under a different name. Some victims have such a limited computer knowledge, that a thought of navigating a forum or anti-scam site seems intimidating to them.
Maybe you will need other details (like occupation, life story, or best friends name) that match as well.
Travel scams (sometimes you will see then being referred to as Visa and Tickets scams) are the most widely used.
We loosely classify RDSs into two groups: 1) Travel scams and 2) all others.
If some other details match as well, there is larger chance that your lady is involved somehow after all. Is there anything else in her behavior that you feel uneasy about?
Start verifying your ladys information and biographical info, if possible. If nothing else matches your ladys information, if you checked her identity and she really exists, and there are no other troubling signs in your ladys behavior, then I would recommend continuing your correspondence, but being very observant about her behavior, in case it will start becoming more troubling in the future.
