Russian & Ukraine online dating scam aspects

Dear friends,

Ukrainian and Russian online dating scam has diverse aspects: both Western men and Russian / Ukrainian women can get scammed. It is really painful and frustrated. But, on the other hand, being extremely cautious might be one of the reasons why Western men cannot find a wife from Russia or Ukraine. Horever, being careful is one of the most important points in Russian and Ukrainian online dating. So how to deal with different aspects of the Russian and Ukrainian online dating scam?

krystyna bloggerHello,

I am Krystyna, a Ukrainian and Russian dating blogger.

One of the most asked question in Russian and Ukrainian dating is about scam. I get a lot of messages from my readers who want to know if the woman they communicate with is a scammer or not. Honestly, it is difficult to find out based only on one or two mails. Of course, there are sometimes exact signs of scam described in the mail (asking for money, willing to communicate only via paid dating services, etc.).

We all know that getting scammed via a paid dating site may happen more than simple. The sites are really full of scammers and professional pro-daters. According to Elena Petrova, an founder, “99% of correspondence from Russian women men receive through Internet dating sites is actually from scammers – fake identities created by computer criminals with the pure goal of extracting money from naïve victims”.

So, I understand men why they think about possible scam. You should be careful. I have to add that Ukrainian and Russian online dating can be really dangerous. Recognizing these scams is the first step in scam avoidance. I recommend to read all possible stuff available online and offline (books, articles, forum threads, experience of other men). I said already that the anti-scam tips are really simple to follow: do not use dating sites which do not allow direct contact with women, do not use paid chat on the sites, do not send money to women you hardly know…

But don’t forget the other side of the coin. Russian and Ukrainian women can get scammed by Western men, as well. It may be very painful and unpleasant to them, too. The women become very careful and cannot trust men completely anymore.

I have experienced that many men and women become extremely cautious when they are looking for a foreign partner. I would say that nothing great is easy. Relationship with a Russian or Ukraine woman does not guarantee you a happy end. Any relationship can fail. Thus, if you like the woman and she gives you no red scam signs, give you and her a chance to be happy. 🙂
