Airport scenarios of dating scammers

airportStrange things happen at airports. Recently, we’ve noticed more and more fraudulent schemes related to airports. It’s like an enchanted place!

Typical scam scenarios

A man meets a girl from Ukraine or Russia on a dating site. She asks him in detail about what he likes in women and adapts to what he needs – tunes the results to his patterns. It’s like polling prior to elections, when political parties promise things that society likes the most.

She gently leads him for some time, wins his trust, and shows him her love and tenderness. She says she has already talked about him with her friends and even with her parents. Everyone around notices how much she has changed… She has never looked as happy as now, bla bla bla…

These positive waves are in dissonant to her hard life. In the country where she lives (usually it’s Russia or Ukraine), it’s so difficult: the salary is low, the boss is constantly demanding something, she works like a dog, saves every penny and barely cuts a minute a day to run into an Internet cafe to chat with her man and say how much she loves him.

And all that, this atmosphere, slowly but surely leads the victim to realize that this is his unique chance. This is happiness. Jackpot! The beauty, the girl of his dreams, all friends will be jealous, and most importantly – she is ready to move in with you just right yet.

At this point, the victim swallowed the hook and it’s time for the fraudsters to milk the cow.

She is ready to come. And since she gives herself to you (the most precious thing), you will have to pay for everything else. The standard set is: making a passport to travel, tickets to America, train tickets to Moscow, medical certificate (COVID), visa application, paper work, etc. And of course, the fake tour agency will take care of it. Don’t worry and relax: she has already prepared a Photoshopped contract with this agency.

And this is only the beginning, my friend.

The moment of truth: she is at the airport. You are salivating for a bite because the desert is near. That’s what you think. And here she is, in all her glory.

Option 1. She was robbed.

Right at the airport, some bad people hit her on the head and took all the money. And before that she borrowed that money, took a loan from a bank, took her mother’s last pension, sold a kidney, etc. Your baby was already in the hospital, she was interrogated by the police and all of Moscow is looking for those villains who stole her purse.

She announces the amount to you, and assures that if you pay it, everything will be OK again.

But the whole point is that it won’t be OK. Never. In no case, under any circumstances. And even if you pay, there will always be a new reason why she can’t leave, being just a step away from you.

The truth is, she was not going to go anywhere. The maximum she really did was get to the airport and take a selfie to send it to you. Her plan did not include leaving her home at all. It’s not personal Sonny it’s strictly business.

Option 2. Confirm financial solvency.

For a few months she’s been shitting your brain telling in detail in which pocket of suitcase she will put her pajamas. But somehow, casually, she forgot one little thing: when crossing the border, she seems to need to show that she has enough money to stay in America for the time she will be there.

All right, my friend, you’re up! You are her hero.

She is extremely sorry, because you have already done so much for her. She’s ashamed, but she has already left everything and everyone to be with you. Only you can save her and borrow a certain amount of money (usually an appetite around $ 1,200).

As soon as the money goes to the specified account (Western Union, Moneygram, RIA, Worldremit etc), she will fly to you on the next flight out. And of course, she will give the money back.

If you take the bait and send money, what happens next is: either she will try to milk you a second time, inventing another lie, or she will just screw you – the contact will break and she will disappear.

But this story is far more interesting than that. If a person is traveling for a short time in the United States, it’s the task of the migration officer of the US Embassy during the visa interview to determine how much she can handle herself in the United States. And if not, she will never get a visa. That’s all you need to know about financial solvency.

Option 3. Debt.

At the passport control at the airport, the girl “suddenly” learns that she cannot be released from the country because she has an outstanding debt (a bank loan, an unpaid mortgage, a debt for utilities, etc.). This option promises the victim the greatest monetary loss.

One of our clients lost about $ 20,000 on this scheme. At first the swindler said that she needed 25% of the amount. Then she decided to sell the apartment, because she didn’t need it anymore. A new life is waiting for her in other country with this new man. Later still, she persuaded the victim to send her a significant amount of money in order to open a bank account, which could take 60 000 EUR for the sale of her apartment.

And the moral of the story is?

Always check the girls you meet online. Do not trust them and question everything they tell you. Yes, she will call you paranoid, she’ll be mad. But why should you be so worried about the thought of a person you’ve never seen before (a stranger to you)?

You want to know if she’s a scammer? Our company helps people to spot scammers from dating sites. We have the necessary experience, knowledge and tools. We can check her identity, the documents she provides, the intermediary companies she works with (tour company, translation agency, etc.)

We do this professionally and we’re ready to help you. Our inspections are fast, inexpensive and safe. And the most importantly – completely confidential. The result is ready in 24 hours.

Russian dating scam. Fake debt and apartment sale fraud

Scam scheme

The man from Scandinavia meets the girl from Russia on Tinder (January 2021).

They start to communicate. The lady offered to leave Tinder.

Tinder is too small and they continue in emails and phone calls.

They had a match. There were even a video call on Skype, the quality was bad but good enough to identify the lady from the pictures the man thought. There were several phone calls from the lady but the man could not call due to some telephone issues in the city.

The lady said she was going to purchase a new phone so that they could write messages on WhatsApp but she could not Skype to often this because of the bad Internet in the city.

The lady is always calm and polite. Exactly how the man likes.

She claims to live at St. Lenina 33, 442962 in the city Zarechny in Penza Oblast, works in a beauty salon as a manager.

Never left the country in her life.

“I and my mother paid for the apartment every month in the small sums. We bought the apartment on credit on such conditions.
Therefore I went to bank in more detail to learn about this letter. But in bank I was shocked. They told that it is not a mistake. 
Explained me it. The citizen of Russia who has any kind of debt to the state has no right to leave the territory of Russia.
For this reason I was detained at registration at the airport and forbade to fly to other country. The police issued the protocol on me on attempt to leave the territory of Russia.”

Even her mom called him to make sure he’s a good person. The mother said she was worried and did not want her only girl to go abroad and therefor invited the man for her 60 birthday in September 2021.

There was mutual sympathy. The man could not come to Russia because of his work and CORONA,

So he invited the lady to visit him in Scandinavia. She agreed.

First she went to Moscow, to get the visa.

According to the law, she must show her financial solvency (around 50 EUR per day).

But the man offered to make her an invitation, where he assured that he’ll take care of her, so there was no need to secure those 50 EUR/day.

(Probably the first “BIG” attempt to get a money transfer but was avid by the invitation)

The man paid around 300 EUR to process her Russian passport and medicine certificate and the travel insurance. The lady said she will purchase the tickets by herself. She was constantly sending all the “documents”, with stamps. Of course, everything in Russian, it all looked fine and secure.

There was a mediator – travel agency that took care of all the paperwork.

The plan was to fly from Moscow to Oslo through Turkey because there’s no direct flight at the moment because of CORONA.

Everything was ready. She was ready to meet the man in Scandinavia.

Then she told him she was stopped at the border because she had a debt.

She went to Moscow, to the bank, to find out what’s going on.

Fake debt

It was because of the debt for her apartment her parents bought 12 y ago. There’s an apartment in Zarechny, her parents took a loan to buy it. She live there, her mother lives with her grandmother somewhere in the village. But some amount was not paid (debt). That’s why she cannot leave the country. But the solution was to pay “security payment” to the bank.

She returns to Zarechny and pretends to be very upset with this situation. Debt for the apartment credit is 694,227 rubles now, it is about 7700 euro and in the first she only needed 25% of this to injure the bank that she could cover the mortgage. But then  quickly after that she claimed that the bank pressed charges to her for trying to leave the country without the 25% already in the bank and she needed to pay the whole amount. so the victim sent this amount to the girl.

“1) I can pay now completely this credit in bank of 694227 rubles.
it is not possible to me to make it now. 694227 rubles, are a lot of money.
It will not be the decision for me at present

2) I will have to leave in bank as pledge 25% of my credit.
I will try to explain you it in detail!
Wash debt in bank makes 694227 rubles
25% = 173556 rubles (1900 euro)”

Apartment sale fraud

Now she decides she doesn’t want to stay in Russia any more. She will move to Scandinavia and stay with the man so she decides to sell the flat. Her mother doesn’t mind (she will stay with her mother).

She decides to sell the apartment for 60 000 EUR. She does all the preparation work (cleaning, technical passport for the apartment etc). Sends all the documents to a victim in parallel.

She finds a person who wants to buy the flat very fast.

But there’s one problem. The account she has is too small to be able to get paid for the flat (60000 EUR). A new account is required and you have to put 8000 EUR to ensure it’s good enough to receive the 60 k for the flat. The victim sent the 8000 EUR. During all this time, she was sending documents (proofs) from the bank.

After that she told the victim that some person from the bank made the mistake, that’s why she needs additional 3000 EUR to close the issue. The victim felt something was wrong and refused to pay. He said, your mother should help you and take out a loan. She said the mother actually did it, but the loan was 2000 EUR only because her pension is very small. So now she needs additional 1000 EUR to close the issue.

This scam is well prepared. The scammer(s) found out everything they needed about a victim.

They scanned him really deep. She never appeared with nude pictures, expensive watches or asking for money. She’s always been calm, polite and confident. Always showed “documents”, gave examples of her friends acting in similar situations and even engaged her “mother”, which spoke to the victim in person.

The trophy was SO close and all the man had to do is to PAY the debt. In his opinion, it was fine that the bank wants to stay on a safe side, not to lose money (loan).

(She even sent this letter on the due date for the debt obligation and the bank account freeze.)

Hello my love

I hope you are fine.

Today I gave keys to my buyer. I cannot return to the apartment.

I have no money. I have no apartment… My bank account is blocked till 2022.

Today I will go to the village to mine mother. I will live in the village at first.

Anna lives with the man. I will not disturb it.

I will arrive from the village and I will write you the letter.

Remember always. I very much love you xxxxxx

Pictures of the lady are stolen and belong to another person (fake identity), two Russian passports are fake, all the documents she sent were fake (fake stamps, watermarks, some form of documents simply don’t exist).

Top 5 Things Men lie about in their Dating Profiles


In today’s world, it is easy to find somebody for creating relationships. It is enough to register on a dating site and potential gentlemen will showering their attention on attractive woman.

Single men who want to make a woman feel comfortable can lie about themselves. Thus, a woman will be able to choose this particular man.

But what exactly are the men lying about on the dating site? Let’s talk about 5 popular things.


Men as well as women are sometimes ashamed of their appearance. A man may be overweight, bald, short, and so on. But a man will try not to talk about it and will slightly stretch the truth. When meeting with a woman, she learns about his shortcomings and their relationship is a question mark.


In his profile on a dating site, a man can be a connoisseur of art, he likes to go to museums, cinemas, and so on. But in fact, a man spruces everything up in order to seem like an interesting company and a developed personality.


A man can lie about his work in order to win the girl’s trust. He can say that he is the main person in their company, the big boss, and so on. A woman will definitely take into account all these advantages and want to meet with him. But it’s like anything, the man turns out to be a simple employee who does not have people under his command, does not earn a lot of money and does not live up to his stories.


A woman may be interested in the intentions of a man, how he fits in creating a family and living together. The man says that he is ripe for a serious relationship, creating a family, having children, and so on. But a man can lie about it in order to get a girl and just use her. It is not uncommon for a man to lie to a woman and leave her after a night with her.


An older man may be uncomfortable with his age and become uncomfortable talking about it. Because of this, he can lie about his age and throw off or add himself at least a couple of years. Thus, a woman will be more comfortable communicating with a man and she will not think that a man is too old or too young for her.

Quick check of a man’s profile

People tend to lie about themselves. Especially online, on dating sites where you can easily be deceived by dating scammers. We’ll help you to verify your man from a dating site and find out who he really is.

How women are deceived on dating sites

How women are deceived on dating sites

Dating scammers every now and then.

They change names and faces, schemes and methods of deception.

They learn and improve.

One thing’s been true since time began: they know psychology perfectly well (human in general and feminine in particular) and play on such feelings as love, compassion and willingness to help others.

Communication with some ends in financial losses. These are faster and easier to recognize.

An affair with others can be fraught with the loss of faith in oneself, in sincere feelings, in normal human relationships. Such scammers are more difficult to recognize and take more time.

If we talk about the first type, who need money, then there are several standard scenarios in which they most often work.

Variations are possible in these schemes, but the general line remains unchanged: first, a man confesses his love and then asks for money.

Who are male scammers most often pretend to be and what stories do they choose to deceive?

  • US military forces (from privates to generals) in a war zone
  • Doctors, most often surgeons. Also doing their duty in hot spots (Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq) and working for the army, the UN, the World Health Organization (WHO), the international nongovernmental organization MSF (Doctors Without Borders), etc
  • Oil workers and engineers on floating oil platforms
  • Seafarers
  • Businessmen who allegedly go on business trips or travel to various countries and get into trouble there.

Most often, photographs of allegedly American military personnel, doctors, etc. scammers from Ghana and Nigeria are hiding. They take photos in the public domain (Instagram), come up with fictitious names/ life stories and write to women.

Dating scammers ask for help and send money when they allegedly find themselves in a desperate situation. And no one but the female victim can help. 

The deception can be quite plausible. And if a woman has no experience of online dating, communication with foreign men, then she may well fall for the bait of a swindler.


Never send money to a man if you have not met him personally, have not seen him at least on video, but communicated only by letters (dating site) or voice. The best defense against fraudsters is your own caution and critical thinking. We offer verification of Ukrainian men on dating sites.

Male romance scammers. How to recognize?

Dating sites are fertile ground for all sorts of swindlers, and girls aged 35 and older are in the zone of special risk. They often have higher incomes, an unsuccessful marriage behind their backs, or a long period of loneliness, which makes them very vulnerable. The scammers have an eye for such women, they figure out a suitable candidate very quickly and put their plan into action. The scheme of deception does not change for years: earn the trust, patiently listen to tearful stories, tones of compliments and care, make you fall in love with him, and then the main thing is to lure your money.

Male dating scammers. Major categories

Single father

This category of men plays, not so much on female feelings, but on the maternal instinct. The story is always the same: the wife died, drunk up, found another man, left in an unknown direction, went on a trip around the world. In short, left the poor fellow with a small child. The classic trick of deception: the child is sick, and the hero father has like five jobs to provide expensive treatment somewhere in Israel or Germany. And then pity for the child and the young father takes its toll, and now the woman is already transferring all her hard-earned money, because the child’s health is above all.

Military romance scams

The most creative guys. An obligatory attribute of the legend is service in the troops, and so remote that neither the telephone nor the Internet can be caught, and this is in the age of high technologies. A stern military man, more often a widower with a child, is looking for a serious woman who would take a bullet for him. There is no time for courtship, so he immediately offers to marry, naturally after the end of the service. As soon as the victim falls in love and already mentally buys a wedding dress, our hero comes under fire in some mountain village or African jungle and scribbles love letters from the hospital, begging for help. “I need money to save my life, I love you, there’s no one else to ask, I’ll pay back everything…”. Classic, isn’t it?


The seduction scheme is quite standard. Invites you on a date, but not in the cinema, but somewhere to Spain. He books the tour, but a couple of days before departure, the card is suddenly lost or blocked, there is no cash. A thousand apologies: “I’ll pay it back; I’ll figure it out as soon as we get back”. The woman’s heart melted, she paid for the tour. A handsome man with “puppy eyes” every day expresses another portion of regret while drinking free champagne on an excursion yacht. Takes a daily breakfast in bed, admiring the natural beauty of her “Aphrodite”. Upon returning from vacation, he disappears in an unknown direction.

Man and woman look for love on dating sites but loose money instead

Russian dating scammers

Prisoner Igor Mazurik was bored in the penal colony, so he played around a bit and registered on a dating site. A profile photo with shaved head against the background of barbed wire would not bring him success in love. Therefore, Igor posted a picture of another handsome man and gave himself a false name.

The women liked it, and the life of the convict became brighter. But Igor could fool them only by correspondence. One could not even dream of meetings. Unless to invite the chosen ones to the colony for dinner. And then Igor decided that since love did not work out, then let him be lucky in money.

He started making dates in expensive restaurants. The woman dressed up, did evening make-up and stood on high heels. At this time, Igor called from the prison and said that he was driving in his fancy car to a meeting with her, but he was stopped by the traffic police. Igor had a conflict with cops, and in order not to take away his driver license, 15 thousand rubles are urgently needed. And he does not have that kind of money with him.

Then Igor passed the phone to his friend from the pen, and he, holding back his laughter, presented himself as a traffic cop and convinced the lady that the situation was really serious.

Incredibly, such a primitive deception scheme worked. And women transferred money to a man whom they had never even seen live. By the way, it was not over.

Having received 15 thousand rubles, Igor called again an hour later and said that he was taken to the police station and there he had a fight with a police officer. And now, in order to close the matter, he needs 60 thousand rubles. And the woman again went to the ATM and transferred this money to the prisoner!

And then Igor called again and said that he didn’t have enough to transfer another 50 thousand rubles to the policeman. And the lady again obediently went to the ATM. One woman in love with a phantom transferred a total of 125 thousand rubles to the prisoner. Realizing that the prince would never come, she went to the police.

This case was recently considered by the district court of Ulyanovsk. By this time, Mazurik was released from prison. But the court again sent him to the clink – for three years – and ordered to give all the stolen money back to the lady who fell in love with him.

But, it is even more offensive when a man seems not only more successful than he really is, but generally turns out to be a girl. A resident of the Republic of Mari El met the beauty girl Anya on a dating site. After a few weeks of communication, she told him a pitiful story, asked for a loan of seven thousand rubles and disappeared. The man filed a lawsuit, and then it turned out that Anya was Alexey. The District Court of the Republic of Mari El gave him a year and a half in prison for fraud.

Women cheat too

A resident of Udmurtia (let’s call her conditionally Natalya) began to communicate with a man on a dating site, and she “had a criminal intent aimed at stealing money.” Having never met a gentleman, she managed in several stages to draw 91 thousand rubles out of him – first 23 thousand, then the same amount (Natalya said that the first amount was stolen by her sister), then 10, 18, 12 and five thousand.

It is not clear from the court decision what legends Natalya invented. But in the end, the gentleman realized that he was deceived, and filed a lawsuit. The district court of the Udmurt Republic appointed the cheater 200 hours of work and ordered her to return the stolen goods.

And now a completely incredible story. A resident of the Sverdlovsk region named Tyutrumova posted a photo of the model on a dating site (she herself weighs more than 100 kg), met a Polish businessman and lured seven million rubles (100 k USD) from him in two years of correspondence. The deceiver said that she had an accident and needed money for treatment. Then her mother was allegedly diagnosed with cancer (money was needed again).

The fraudster several times refused to meet under strange pretexts, but the businessman was in love and could not critically evaluate her behavior. In addition, the girl said that she had useful acquaintances for him, and promised to help with the conclusion of a contract in business.

As a result, the Severouralsk City Court of the Sverdlovsk Region gave the fraudster two years in prison, charged her with a fine of 500 thousand rubles and ordered her to pay back all the money to the defrauded businessman.

Take of the victim mask

Not all victims go to court, because they are ashamed of being such fools. So it’s better to never get deceived at all. Psychologists explained what you need to pay attention to.

Firstly, scammers choose very lonely people who so want to believe in a fairy tale of mutual love that they believe no matter what. A fraudster recognizes such a person by the “victim’s mask” – a sad expression on his face or a sad half-smile.

If a fraudster looks through a photo of a man and sees that in one photo he is holding a barbecue, in the other he is swimming in the pool, in the third he is hugging a friend, she understands that such a person is unlikely to fall for the bait of scam. He lives a full life, and it can be seen, – says the psychologist.

And the other man in the photographs is always alone, and even if he tries to smile, his eyes are sad. And his appearance is not attractive – maybe overweight, for example.

“This is a potential victim for a dating scammer” says the psychologist. She understands that such a man is sorely lacking in sexuality and emotions. You can show him your beautiful photo and write first. And that’s it, then he will finish this plot himself. He will believe that the princess fell in love with him, and just like that, it is not clear why.

Of course, the fraudster does not immediately extort money. She waits for the victim to fall in love with the fake image.

For a while, a woman writes and is interested in a man, sends him semi-erotic photos, gets into emotions, – explains the psychologist. And the man falls in love. And then “suddenly” the woman get in trouble. She hasn’t been in touch for three days, although she used to write daily. The man is in a panic, he is used to receiving his portion of emotions. And then she appears. The woman will not directly ask for money, but will say that her daughter or mother needs surgery. And she will be so lost and unhappy. The man wants to be the hero-savior and asks how much the operation costs. The amount depends on the woman’s appetites and the man’s wealth, which the swindler has already measured by this moment.

Men cheat women on dating sites in much the same way. The victims are those who need for attention.

The scheme is the same: a photo of a successful man, affectionate and gentle words to a woman. The man fully satisfies the woman’s need for attention. A scammer can process his victim from a couple of weeks to six months. He realizes that she has fallen in love. Then he disappears. And then he appears and says that he has problems with the business. The woman immediately begins to play the savior.

The most important sign of deception on dating sites is that your prince or princess is fully satisfied with online correspondence. They refuse to meet in a real life, citing some problems.

Before extorting money, the fraudsters fit in. They listen, give some recommendations, conduct an active friendly communication. Thus, the interlocutor has a sense of security. And also the emotions that he or she needs. If moral support is needed, then the dating scammers give it. If attention is needed, they give attention. If veneration, then they say their interlocutor is the best.

When trust and emotional contact is established, the scammer is ready to meet. But often on the day of the meeting, some kind of misfortune happens to her. Moreover, she prepared the victim for this in advance – she told that this could happen to her. For example, supposedly her mother felt very bad before and now she was diagnosed with cancer.

Since in the day the dating scammer supported the victim in the form of moral support and friendly conversation, the person feels obliged to help in return.

In order not to fall for the bait, you have to remain sober. For example, to understand that a model cannot instantly fall in love with you if you are an older man with overweight and without special talents and do not arouse interest even in much less beautiful women.

You also need to soberly assess the behavior of the interlocutor. Have you been talking for six months and still won’t meet because she refuses? You’d love to ignore that not destroy the fairy tale. But do not close your eyes, do not forget about common sense.

And one more thing: in order to attract good luck on a dating site (and in general everywhere), you need to live actively, so that you have many reasons to be satisfied with yourself and a lot of energy. Then it will be visible even from the photograph and the scammers will not even think about hunting you (and they will not be able to, if they try).

Digital hygiene on dating sites during the pandemic

hygiene on dating sites

In the self-isolation mode, people have practically no opportunity for live communication. The only way out for many in this situation is dating sites and social networks. However, on such sites, you are more likely to meet scammers than princes and princesses. Therefore, in order not to fall on the hook of scammers, you must follow basic rules. Along with faith in the sincerity and the bright future, people lose money and even their reputation. How to recognize scammers and not be deceived?

Modern reality

Facebook, the largest social network in the world, was originally a dating site for Harvard University students. So websites specializing in finding soulmates or fleeting love are a modern reality.

The most popular dating applications such as Badoo or Tinder allow you to view user profiles, highlighting those that you liked more than others, like photos and exchange messages.

Remember that the biggest danger to dating site visitors is fraudsters who pull out personal information that poses a threat to disclosure. For example, details of personal life that others do not know about. The blackmailers then offer the victims to ransom this information. Moreover, there is no guarantee that the criminals, having received the desired reward, will not disclose incriminating information or will not demand money again. And it is very difficult to prevent an attacker from publishing materials, so it is better not to get into such a situation at all.Despite the popularity of dating sites, many are still embarrassed to admit to visiting them. The reality is, if you play fair and post your photo, finding you is easy. You can come up with any nickname, but even a person who was previously unfamiliar with you is able to identify you by a picture: recognition services have advanced far and are available to everyone. Your image alone is enough to find your social media profile, public event shots, and whatever else you are featured on.

By posting information on a dating site, you are publishing it for everyone. Therefore, when filling out your profile, indicate only those data that you are not ashamed to share. The same rule applies to photographs.
Don’t neglect the simple rules of digital hygiene.

One video call instead of a thousand messages

Do not delay with virtual chat conversations, and switch to video communication as soon as possible.

When registering, do not use an e-mail with your last name, especially corporate mail. Do not link your profile to social media accounts. Otherwise, the fraudster will know everything about you, right down to the address and place of stay. But keep in mind that, using the search “by picture”, interested people will still be able to find you. For the same reasons, do not write your real name on the form.

Use the most secure dating sites and apps and antivirus software. If you really want to see the person you met online, video chat applications come to the rescue. There are many videos and stories on the Web about how people celebrate family holidays, birthdays, cook together, listen to music, watch movies, visit online exhibitions and concerts, and even read books. Modern means of communication are very helpful at times when there is no way to meet in person.

Password must be strong

Video chat applications should only be downloaded from official sources to minimize the risk of malware infecting your device. All services should use different yet complex passwords, and wherever possible, enable two-factor authentication. This minimizes the possibility of hacking your account, and if attackers nevertheless take over your account in one of the services, this will prevent them from accessing your other accounts.

You should not click on suspicious links received in messengers from friends (their account can be hacked), and even more so from new people from dating services. Links can lead to phishing sites, or they can download malicious files.

Remove from instant messengers all important information regarding personal data, passwords and logins that you send to friends, immediately after reading by the other party. Do the same with the data you receive. So you will negate the opportunity to use this information to the one who gets access to it (if your account is hacked).

Use modern means of communication so as not to feel lonely during a pandemic, but do not forget about safety!

Russian dating scammer imitates robbery at the airport

airport robbery scam scheme dating sites

Gentlemen, we continue to share with you stories from our experience so that you do not fall into similar situations.

Russian lady from a dating site imitates robbery at the airport

The American meets a girl from Russia on a dating site. They correspond, and sympathy is established between them, which seems to grow into love.

She flies to him in America.

The swindler was able to convince the victim that in order to pass customs control she needed to show a certain amount of money:

In short: customs officials require every Russian tourist who flies to the United States on a tourist visa to demonstrate that they have $3160. otherwise, they do not allow people on the flight. because of this rule, I was not on the flight, and I have the right to book any next flight convenient for me. but I need to have $3160. I won't have to spend this money. I will have to showthis money at customs. And I can get on a plane and come to you. I will return all the money to you when I arrive there to you.

my dear, I understand that this is a large amount of money. but I will not have to spend this money. I just have to have this money with me and show this money to customs officers.

my love, I hope that we can find the strength to overcome this obstacle! I love you very much and I want to be with you!

You should know that such a rule does not really exist. Checking the financial capacity of a person traveling to the United States is the task of the officer at the consulate (during the interview for a US visa), not the officers at customs.

How much money a person has is his personal business. It is important only that the legal limits of cash are not violated.

Unfortunately, the man (victim of this scam) sent her the requested amount of money ($ 3160).The fact that she used her own bank account actually convinced him to send her money. It’s a risky scam but it worked for her. 

Then the situation unfolded as follows. The girl said she was attacked at the airport just before departure and robbed.

Forgive me, my dear. I did not meet our expectations, I could not fly to you. Damn, it's just some kind of horror! I'm very to blame! But I have to tell you.

Chuck, I got into a terrible situation.. I was robbed by criminals! Now I just do not want to live. I feel guilty in this situation! Please listen to me, understand that I did not want this. This is some stupid combination of circumstances. I did not even know that someone at the airport could attack me and rob me! Chuck, now I feel I'm not worthy of such a wonderful and magnificent man like you! I am so sorry! Please do not be mad at me! I love you very much, my prince!

Chuck, I was at the police station all night. But before the police I went to the hospital, I was diagnosed with a concussion. Now I'll explain everything to you in more detail.

When I arrived at the airport, nothing boded ill. Everything went according to plan. I had to go to the customs. But I wanted very much in the toilet. I could not stand it. And of course I went to the toilet. But in the toilet an accident awaited me. In the toilet, some girl started talking to me, she was asking me something. And suddenly I lost consciousness. Someone hit me from behind on the head, while the girl distracted me with her questions. They searched me, they found the money that I had. They took all the money. They did not collect documents and things from the bag.

I was taken to the hospital, I was given first aid and they diagnosed me with a concussion. And now my head is very sore. Next I went to the police to write a statement of the crime. I spent the whole night in the police, I was interrogated, I filled out some papers and statements. I'm very tired and my whole body hurts, especially my head.

But this was not enough for fraudsters. “Fortunately,” for a victim who has already lost $ 3,160, the situation can be “corrected.” Here’s what scammers write:

The police talked about this with customs officers. customs officers told the police that people who travel on a tourist visa can show their bank account. This bank statement must be new, no later than 4 hours. and it turns out I don’t have to carry a lot of cash with me. I did not know about it!! I would have done it. But I did not know! I was not experienced in these matters.
If I could have the right amount of money, I would make an extract on my bank account, and I would be safe from criminals!! And I would have gone through customs and on the next flight I would have come to you. But I have no money, and I do not know what to do now. Please forgive me, my love. I feel like a stupid woman because of this situation. I blame myself so much!

Chuck, I love you so much! I understand that you can be angry with me. But please do not leave me! We will be together! I love you my dear! I can not live without you! I do not imagine my life without you! you are my Love! Forgive me.
Always yours
your loving Maria.

By the way, here is the account number to which the victim transferred $ 3,160 to Marina

How will the Ukrainian Covid passports work?

ukrainian covid passport

In Ukraine, the launch of a document confirming vaccination against coronavirus COVID-19 has been announced. The Ministry of Health of Ukraine explained where and how it is planned to use this “vaccination passport” (Covid passport).

Ukraine will develop a single document for vaccinated against COVID-19 for international travel and domestic use. This was announced by Deputy Minister of Health of Ukraine Yaroslav Kucher. Vaccination confirmation can be obtained in the form of an electronic or paper certificate. The final version of the document is still being finalized.

Ukrainian Covid passport for travel

According to the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, the developed document will be needed primarily by those who will travel abroad. “It is not a technical problem for us to print this standard document, set a QR-code for verification or some other verification methods. Our question is that this document be accepted and accepted where our citizens will enter,” explained Kucher. According to him, the ministry will primarily focus on the requirements of the European Union regarding the international vaccination certificate. “We are ready to either integrate into the existing system or launch our own as soon as possible,” the deputy minister said.

When and how they will start issuing certificates

The Ministry of Health does not name a specific date for the introduction of “vaccination passports”. “We will hope that it will be as soon as possible, because everyone will start getting vaccinated,” said Yaroslav Kucher. “Now we are choosing the way to go. If there is no unified solution from the EU, so to speak, in a clear period of time, we will launch our own and start a campaign to recognize our documents.”

At the same time, the Ministry of Health acknowledges that there is currently no specific vision of what the document will look like and on which platform it will work. The Ministry of Health predicts that such a document will most likely be available through the state electronic services portal “Diya”.

The Ministry of Digital Transformation says that the developers of the vaccination document are waiting for final decisions from the WHO, in order to implement a passport in their vision, which will be recognized by all countries.

How much is a cheap smartphone in Ukraine

price of cheap smartphone in ukraine

If you feel that your new girlfriend from Ukraine is trying to steal your money to buy a new smartphone, this article will be useful for you. Hope, it’s not too late.

“Honey, buy me a smartphone so we can chat and see each other”. This is one of the most popular scams on dating sites. The woman from Ukraine convinces you that you are very interesting to her, that she thinks about you every day and can’t wait to meet you. Communication usually takes place either on paid dating sites or in messengers (WhatsApp). You can’t see her face because she claims that she still has a very old and antediluvian mobile phone. But if you send her money, she will buy a smartphone with a camera and then you will finally be able for a video chat. Of course, this is a lie and the main goal is to get an extra few hundred dollars from you. And the very fact that you cannot see her face is a red flag… But that’s not what this is about.

Smartphones in Ukraine cost less than you thought

Some time ago we consulted a gentleman in a similar situation. He thought: I will send her 200 USD and let her buy a cheap smartphone in Ukraine so that we can communicate in video chat. We explained to him that $ 200 was clearly too expensive. So how much does a cheap smartphone in Ukraine cost then?

In fact, the logic of our client from the United States can be understood. The American market is dominated by Apple smartphones with a corresponding price tag. However, the situation in Ukraine is different. As of the end of 2020, the TOP smartphone brands in Ukraine look like this: Xiaomi – 40%, Samsung – 25%, Huawei – 16%, ZTE – 4%, Oppo – 4%. As you can see, the Apple brand is not on this list at all.

As for the cost of cheap smartphones of the Xiaomi brand in Ukraine, it is many times lower than Apple smartphones (despite their quite acceptable quality). Their cheapest versions start from 100 USD. Meanwhile, if you want to buy a used Apple smartphone in Ukraine, its price starts from 65 USD only.

If a girl from Ukraine you met on the dating site does not have a smartphone, it’s a wake-up call. A young attractive Ukrainian woman without a smartphone is as rare as a cool party without a hangover in the morning.

The best thing you can do before sending her any money is contact us. “Guys, can you verify this woman? Is she legit?” We will consult you, check her and give a professional assessment. You will save time, money and sleep soundly.
