Kazan russia dating scams
They do not ask for money for a ticket or visa but instead send you a scanned visa as “proof”.This is likely to be a scan of a fake or fabricated visa.The scammer will have photos showing a young and attractive woman though her profile may say she’s from America or England.The scammer will later explain that she’s from Russia but couldn’t select it as an option on the dating site.This is a broad example of Russian online dating scams.The period from first contact to first cash request could be a few days or a few months but regardless how long you've "known" the person, a request for money is a scam.
