Great first email dating site
The scam will go on for as long as the guy is willing to continue sending money to help his "Russian princess" to get through her never-ending travel misadventure.
The bait will keep the "flames of his love" alive by periodically chatting with him on the phone or sending him descriptions of "her" erotic fantasies.
Some scammers fall in love and ask for money within 10 days, while others may correspond for 6-8 months before requesting any money.
The duration of the phase depends on the scammer's own work style.
"She" becomes extremely eager to meet in person, so she decides to find out what her options are as far as visas and travel fare.
The scammer will announce the good news (that she found out how to obtain the visa) in one of the letters shortly after explaining her undying love.
If the guy agrees, the "lady" pretends to put all effort into making "her" travel arrangements. " She" acts surprised to find out that there are various expensive requirements that " she" has to comply with before she can fly out of the country.
Those supposed requirements usually include proof of financial independence and requirement to pay off all loans that "she" has in her name.
As a results of using the sets of pre-written letters, scammers tend to ignore questions posted to them, or when they do answer questions, they answer them only at the very beginning or at the very end of each letter.Sometimes at the same time many scammers would announce that their yearly vacation time (usually 2 weeks) is coming up.However, the duration of the "set up" phase varies significantly.Often, scammers use big online dating web sites to approach their potential victims.When that happens, their profiles on sites like Yahoo and indicate that they are from the USA, Canada, or Europe (that is because those sites no longer accept subscribers from Russia).
