Choose a reputable dating service or agency in order to avoid being scammed this way.You come across a profile of a young, attractive woman on an online dating site or maybe she contacts you.
This is likely to be a scan of a fake or fabricated visa.
Just when you think everything is going smoothly, there is a last minute problem and they will request you to urgently send them some money, without which it will be impossible for them to make their trip.
This is a scam and you should never send money for it!
There are several fake website masquerading as Russian marriage agencies promising to bring Western men and Russian women together.
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 way you can avoid losing money through a scam and a traditional Russian woman would probably prefer it if the man made the effort to come visit her.
After some time, she will tell you she cannot continue communicating with you as she cannot afford to pay for the translation service anymore.
At this point, they either expect you to offer to pay for the service or even ask you if you will be willing to pay for the service so you can continue your relationship.
While most Russian dating websites are genuine, a number of them are fake and their so-called members are not real either.
