Lets talk about individual scammers, those who place their profiles on the different online dating services, free and paid.What we don't like about the existing Russian scam lists is that they provide the impression that there are thousands of Russian scammers out there, and behind each scam profile stays different girl (or guy, whatever). We are absolutely convinced: Russian girls are NOT scammers! Travel scams (sometimes you will see then being referred to as Visa and Tickets scams) are the most widely used. We loosely classify RDSs into two groups: 1) Travel scams and 2) all others.As for other countries, such as Russia, Ukraine, Romania, Senegal, Philippines etc., then declared country of residence and the actual usually coincide.
Most people know what it's all about: the scammers establish some lovely correspondence with you, fall in love with you after just a couple of letters and then start asking for money, for different purposes: for visa and ticket to come meet you, for English classes, for cell phone, for Internet connection, for sick Mom, whatever. Or, she will ask you for more money and then will be gone. We are not going to cover agencies here, we don't work with Russian marriage agencies and have no idea who is scam and who is not.

They may change their names and/or contact information, but they can't change their age, because scammers use the same sets of photos most times and have to indicate the age, which would correspond to the age of the girl in the photos.
Perhaps you know that she is 25, try to search for her with 25-25 or 24-26 or 23-27 or other combinations, selecting the country where she claims to live.
