Is this Russian girl scamming me? How to recognize scammers

Are you an American or Western European man exchanging emails with a girl from Russia? I was contacted by a girl who turned out to be a scammer. Reader Derrick put together some great advice how to detect scammers.
I only have one advice (#8) to add: If a Russian girl tells you that she will get a visa to the USA instead of inviting you, that is - under the current immigration law - a SURE sign that SHE LIES.

Here is the process how a Russian woman can come to the USA:

If she is considered a relatively young/ attractive woman (let's say under 40, hope I don't hurt anyone's feelings here), then there is virtually NO CHANCE THAT SHE GETS A TOURIST VISA TO THE USA. First the Russian Federation will not allow her to leave the country. Then, even if she was getting out, the USA will deny her admission. The reasoning is that she is considered a risk. How could she not be a risk? If she had family in Russia (husband, children) or a valuable business or real estate. Most likely the woman who writes you will be considered a risk. The only way for her to get a visa into the USA is this procedure:

  1. the foreign man visits her in her native area in Russia
  2. they get engaged during such a visit - take photos of the 2 of you together
  3. he flies back and applies for a K-1 visa. A K-1 visa is also known as Fiancee visa, used for marriage-based immigration
  4. once the K1 visa is granted, the girl can enter the USA and stay there for 3 months. By the end of these 3 months you HAVE to GET MARRIED or the girl has to go back home.
  5. if you get married, the girl gets a greencard and can work
  6. after 3 years of marriage, the girl can apply for a US citizenship. That's when they interview you to find out if it's a real marriage. She also has to answer some questions about US history, political system, etc etc.


Here are Derrick's tricks (1-7) that he uses immediately from the start:
  1. GOOGLE or websearch the first part of the scammers first emails and/or 'profile'. SEE HOW MANY OTHER SITES their listed on! RECORD THOSE SITES FOR FUTURE REFERENCE. THAT alone can give you a good idea IF your dealing with a scammer OR not.
  2. GOOGLE or websearch the return email address. See how many 'hits' come from that search and also note all the sites. (many times you'll see the email end up on a 'scammers list') IF YOU FIND THE EMAIL ADDRESS LISTED ON A SCAMMER LIST - don't bother further, your only fooling yourself - no matter what excuse they might give you.
  3. FROM THE START - ASK FOR SPECIFIC INFOMATION! A full name, address, phone number - something. OFFER THE SAME in exchange, except make it a P.O. box and a CELL PHONE rental card that will protect your identity. If you see your requests ignored, which you usually will, don't waste your time further.
  4. ALWAYS ASK SPECIFIC QUESTIONS that would REQUIRE A SPECIFIC ANSWER outside the use of FORM LETTERS. IF YOU FIND your questions go unaddress in your reply emails from 'them/her' - YOUR DEALING WITH A SCAMMER. Again, don't bother further.
  5. DON'T WAIT 6 MONTHS to offer to talk with the PROSPECT by phone! WHAT A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME! IF THERE IS CHEMISTRY OR APPEARS 'INTEREST' BETWEEN THE TWO OF YOU - then sieze the opportunity. ARRANGE A PHONE CALL! International rates to Russia and most places are reasonably cheap. IF YOU GET THE REPLY ' I'M SO POOR I DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO A PHONE' - drop the whole thing, your only wasting your time and WILL BE SCAMMED at some point in the future.
  6. PHOTO FLOOD! IF IT/SHE/HIM/THEM - LOOK TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE - THEN IT PROBABLY IS! MOST IF NOT ALL OF THE SCAMMES USE PHOTOS OF MODELS IN THEIR HOME COUNTRIES TO POSE ON THE NET IN THEIR PROFILE(s)! Consider this - IF THEY LOOK like a MODEL then tell you they're so poor they don't have access to a phone - YOUR BEING SCAMMED!

    ASK FOR A SPECIAL PHOTO TO BE TAKEN. IF YOU SENT YOURS, HAVE THEM TAKE A PHOTO SHOWING THEM HOLDING UP YOUR PHOTO IN THE PICTURE! That is a good 'scammer filter' - even the most adept with Photoshop will easily be spoted.

    BETTER STILL - ASK THEM TO TAKE A PHOTO THAT SHOWS THEM HOLDING A CURRENT NEWPAPER OF YOUR CHOICE OR THEIR COUNTRY, WITH A RESOLUTION THAT YOU CAN READ THE DATE! NOT some low grade - grainy photo! FEW WILL EVER DO THAT.

    AT THE LEAST - ASK THEM FOR A PHOTO of them wearing a specific combination of clothes and/or colors - something different then the usual 'model clothing' - most use to send out. OR AN OBJECT - TOASTER, ELECTRIC CLOCK, BY A COUCH, IN A ROCKING CHAIR something that would be very hard to use PHOTOSHOP to just PUT in another FILE PHOTO.

    *** IF this person is real or sincere, they won't mind doing this for you! ALSO - offer to do the same for their comfort also - that is only fair.
  7. IF THINGS GET SERIOUS - then ASK THEM TO DELETE ALL THEIR OTHER WEB PROFILE POSTS! CHECK ON THE ONES YOU NOTED EARLIER! Again, IF THEIR SINCERE - they will - happily as your their DREAM and future!
  8. If she talks about getting a visa or that she needs money to get a travel visa to the USA, she lies. See the proper course of action described at the top.

This scammer named Alena gave an adress flight info, called me on the phone and even a guy call me pretending to be from the agency putting together her travel. Her scam was that she didnt have the money to give the agency for the embasy to insure she would return to Russia after 3 months. You will see her Emails are worded almost exactly like some others posted above. Here are 2 of them:

Hello!!! It was very nice to receive a message from you!
it is my first time I try to correspondence with man in internet world.
I do hope you will be enough patient to understand my writing.
I want you to know that I have only good intentions and I don`t have
big
secrets.
The thing is that I will work abroad for three months or so and I would
like to meet a nice man to be my guide
or just be good friend to spend time with.I think that it is hard
enough to
live in foreign town without
friends and also I have never been abroad. I am from so small town here
in
Russia,I am afraid to be
lost. I want to see real life and it is impossible to see without
person who knows all sides of the life. It doesn`t matter what age is
he or
what is his eyes
color, I just want to know that he is kind and open-hearted inside.
I don't want to live in Russia because I have not any chances here,it
is hardly possible to explain it by the first time but I want you to
know
my plans.
In Russia many young girls also want to start a new life abroad, so
many of
them
used a special program 'Work and travel' for people who wants to work
abroad.
I also decided to do so and to use it. This program just helps to
register
documents and gives suitable work
in any state(town)of USA or Canada. I just need to choose.I already
started
to register
documents and now I need to decide in which city I want to work.
I`m 29 years old and I`m not afraid of work (I will work as a fitness
trainer). I think it is the right way for
me, I am lost here, and I think that I look pretty enough to find a
better
place. I never been abroad so I decided
to find a friend abroad and make his city to be my destination. I want
to
repeat the same way,it is my only
chance to change my life. I am full of plans and different dreams.I
have
real light brown hair (but some times i'm changing the color) and grey
eyes.to be fair I don't
like this name. I am not a doll and
I have my own mind.I do hope that you will be not disappointed to meet
me
in the real life if we will meet.
Well,I will close this letter and I do hope to get your reply.
I will leave my town in a few days or so (I can't tell you everything
exactly right now) and I would like to
be sure that I have a man who waits for me there. I will work all day
and I
would like to find a man to spend
all free
time together to get to know each other better.if you have any interest
to
meet me I will be more than happy to
meet you too.
My be it sounds silly but I just don't want to be alone in the
evenings,and
I want to be sure
in advance that somebody waits for me!
I think that my e-mails starts to be too long so I will tell you all
details about me and my life
that you would like to know in next e-mails if you will like my
pictures and will want to meet me! I send my different pictures.
By the way this is my personal e-mail adress, so pls write me here,ok?
With best regards Alena.

And another:
Honey!
I'm so sorry,that i didn't wrote to you little earlier, i having some
problems
and i tried to solve it myself 12 hours but it seem no result.
I didnt wrote to you only becuase of this.
After you have sent me money,i have received it, i have bought
the tickets to fly to you and went on interview on visa today.
Everything
was well with my documents, but in the Embassy they have
asked about my property, my income and relatieves, pursoses
of my visit and so on.
Agency told, embasy gave them back info:
They explained to me as far as i have
low income 150 USD a month here, i have no property and
only parents, i'm not reliable worker and i have to give them
additional
guaranties that i will not stay illegaly to work. I have to have money
on special guarant account-security money account in this agency to get
visa.
They have explained me, that they have very good contact with some
clerks in the Embassy and they have special conditons for their
clients-workers, in case when Embassy don't want to give visa
to their client, they create security money account and give
additional prooves to the Embassy that client will come back to Russia
at least to take this money. Sum for me is 1500 USD
I didn't even expected everything turns like that. It mens money
wil have to be in the agency, while my visit to USA, when i come
back they return money. I was so shocked, i have called to my parents
and relatives, but they have sent me only 300 USD, they don't have
more.
Honey,please send me 1200 USD,i will put it on the agency account.
If i will stay legally in USA (i mean we will be together and make visa
for me longer, agency will just transfer this money on your account,
then we will tell them about it). Or i will earn this money and return
to you
with 1000 USD you have sent me already. You are my only hope
and please help me in this situation. I'm so totally depressed and i
write
you the letter in not very good mood.
I know that if i come to you, we will be good together, i will start
new
life and you will be main part of this new life. You words really
touched
my heart and i'm thinking of you as about my life partner.
On current moment agency cancelled flight and they are waiting when
i will have money to arrange it on new date and make next interview
for me in Embassy, they tell it is possible to do it right tomorrow
or on friday.
Honey,please help me
Love you
Alena
p.s. tomorrow they will work from 8a.m.
i can give you their manager number
and i can aslo call you myself from post office tomorrow also

i too have been scammed by some girl, well she attempted to was this Yulija Shipil sent many photos including a fake passport identification, i didnt see lincoln memorial on the photo. instead it showed an eagle. funny you know, to read what they type. and even give them advice on how to save money on their 'airfare' that they said they needed, yet odd as it was i realized had they been a real person i would have saved them over $1200 (USD) which would have more than covered their other costs. at the time i wasn't aware of the process by which someone acquires a visa from russia to usa. now i am aware, and i realize it will take alot of money to do. so it seems that this is why they must do their scam. such is life

I just started writing to this girl from Russia. She piggy-backed from another dating web site by using a different girl's profile there.
I began to questiona few things she told me. So I wanted to see if this was a scam or not. I am glad that this web site exists. Thank you. These Russian women are very good looking ladies, so they resort to scamming us men. Why?
She used this name and yahoo address:
I have included a few of the photos she sent me. She uses many of the same photos that have already been posted. So men Beware, use your brains, don't believe everything you see or read.

SWETLANA' <sfnuer@yahoo.com
Thanks for your reply so much!!! I hope soon I will be able to

come to your area by my birthday and we will meet each other!

This time I will write you more about myself. I think you should know

more about my life and my hobbies so you will know if we have any

common interests.

So you already know my first name Swetlana. My last name is Tchernykh.

I'm 27 years old, not that young I

suppose? My birthday is on 20 April. I'm 168 cm tall (5.6.) and 51 kg

weight (about 120 pounds , I'm not sure how much it is in pound but I'm

not fat which you can see from my photos!).

I don't know exactly my bust-waist-hips measurements, I

don't have a reason to measure it because I think it's OK and my body

is proportionate )) I take care of my body, I do aerobics three times

a week and two times a week I go to a swimming pool.

I have an older sister, you can see her with me on photos. She is 31

years old now.

She recently divorced and she had 4 years old daughter. Her husband

cheated on her.

We live with our parents in 3 room apartment.

The name of my city is Bratsk , it's near Irkutsk city. Bratsk is

quite small city unlike Irkutsk which is a large city, the main city in our

district.

Have you ever heard about the lake Baykal? It's near Irkutsk ! It's the

deepest and cleanest lake

in the whole world. It's very beautiful!

I graduated from Irkutsk Humanitarian University two years ago,

the dance faculty. Yes, we have such faculty in Humanitarian

University! So I'm a professional dancer. I don't want to have a

dancer's career because I will have not much time for my private life

and for relationship with a man. I work as a dance teacher, I teach

children from 12 to 17 years how to dance! Also I have a certificate

of fitness instructor, this is my another hobby. So it would be

perfect if later I can find a work as a fitness instructor or teacher of

dances!!! I think it's a very good job for a woman, I'm always in a

good shape and I keep myself not that busy!

Do you know how to dance? If not I can teach you!

I can dance many different styles.

When I come to your city I will work as a waitress in a restaurant. I

would like to work as a

dance teacher but I think you understand it's not possible to arrange

such work by Internet because they want to see the level of my dancing.

Anyway I will try to find this kind of work when I come over there. Or maybe

not a dancer but aerobic( fitness) instructor, I think it's also very good job.

I'm sending few photos for you today! I hope you are not tired to look

at my photos?

First two pics were taken in Sochi (the Black Sea ) last summer. The

next two pics were taken during New Year's holidays while we were

shopping for presents with my sister.

In winter I like skiing, although we have cold winters... our summers

are warm usually.

Mom is much younger then my father and they are very happy together. My

mother is a teacher of music in the school. I can play piano also, she

tought me to play piano. I finished music school and I still play

piano about once a week. My father is retired engineer.

I cannot say I enjoy one particular type of music. It might sound strange for you but

I can listen to almost everything. The list is endless actually. But anyway,

there are a couple of things I have always enjoyed to listen to.

They are Enigma and Deep Forest. I adore their music. It is so sensual and

helps relax a lot. I also like classic music, jazz, rock, lounge.

I want to try how to ride a motorcycle someday! I've never tried it!

By the way, do you have an International Airport in your city?

Please write me the name and the code of it.

Or write me the name of the nearest airport to you.

I write you my emails from Internet cafe, I don't have my own computer.

I suppose in few days I will leave for Moscow and start my trip!

There is no any messenger in this Cafe so we can only keep emailing

each other. I hope you are not getting bored to read my emails?

My address here is Russia , Bratsk , Gagarina 54 street, flat 6.

So now you know who I am....

I just can tell you that I enjoy life and I try to live to the

fullest, I like to try new things. I'm not that smart.. I was not that

good in mathematics, physics, biology and so on! But I'm very tender,

caring,

artistic, faithful, decent person.

Sometimes I can be not well organized, I think everybody had it's own

minuses and pluses.

I don't look for any special qualities in a man. I just hope he will be

faithful to me and ready to create a happy family with me and I will

do everything to make him happy. I'm looking for a soulmate!



OK... it's time to finish my email. I'm sending a kiss by the wind to

you and if I sent it to the right destination you should receive it by

evening )))) I hope you will catch my kiss somehow )))





PS Thanks for the nice photo, you look handsome!!!



By for now!!!

Yours,

Swetlana

Another web site to beware of is faceparty.com. It's a british based free internet dating site. The place is just crawling with Russian and Nigerian Scammers. Every week I'm getting 2-3 new e-mails a week. The e-mails are fishing and they look suspicious. They haven't asked me for any money, but you can tell the people that write the letters aren't for real. So beware when you go on faceparty.com and proceed at your own risk.

There are a lot more whors that are trying to scam American guys than I thought. It must be a lucrative business for these whors, or there wouldn't be so many of them trying it. I've loked at every picture that has been downloaded to this website. I've determined that every single one of these women that has her photo posted here is indeed an internet scammer. Think about it. Why else would they bother posting their photo to men they have never met before in such provocative poses? It's a dead give- away. I hope you guys are not fooled by the fact that they say they don't speak english. They are probably working for Russian guys that know how to speak english very well, and are telling the girls what to say. Beware!

OK...guys...i have some news for you all.......after having shared severla emails with this person (OLGA DOROVSKIH)....even though i have seen her emails and some of her photographs that she shared with others with different names.....i received several emails fron her....i stop answering her emails for a while....and after all i responded to her by sayiing that i have been very busy.....and that i wasn't sure if she was real...and that i prefer to visit her or since she claimed to be so interested in me.....why not come and then i will repay her money.....and check this out....her reply....

EMAIL (1)

Sunshine Martin,
I have not enough time. Therefore I shall write
the most important.
I want to meet with you so much, to see you at last.
I will come to you for about 10 or 15 days. Please,
understand that I don’t have a goal to get married.
I want to see if we really can be together.
I have started the process of getting visa. I will
pay for it. And as soon as I get visa, I will come
to you, if you don’t mind and if you want to see me.
In any way, it depends on you, of course.
I will come at any time which is convenient to you.
Olga.

EMAIL (2)

My darling Martin,
are you really a woman??????????? - YES!!!
I am doing the best for us as I want you to be happy.
And I want to be happy myself too.
Everything is done. I have money not only for tickets but
for visa too.
What do you feel now? I am very -very much excited and happy.
I will be able to see you at last. I can’t believe in it myself.
I will pay for visa but it will take some time to get it.
As soon as I get it I will let you know. All we need now is to wait.
I will stay at your place for 10 or more days not to disturb
you. But if you ever ask me to stay for longer, I will do
it with pleasure. You will make me the happiest woman in the world.
It is up to you. I hope you will not be disappointed. I will
do everything I can to make you love me as I do.
I will give you all of myself. I will give you all my love
and passion. All my care and tenderness.
I will treat you the best way. You deserve it. I know.
You are my life and everything. Never forget about it, please.
I need you badly.
Miss you.
Send you my hot kisses.
Yours forever.
Olga.

N.B I THINK SHE IS AWARE OF WHAT IS GOING ON HERE......(BUT IF NOT)......ONE OBSERVATION....... THESE EMAILS IS FAR DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHERS I HAVE READ......AND IF SHE DOES COME TO SEE ME.....I'LL LET KNOW.....THEN SHE WOULD PROVE HERSELF TO BE DIFFERENT (HONEST) AT LEAST THIS TIME.....

To the individual inquiring about an 'Irina Mikheeva,' yes, I'm quite certain she/he/it is a fraud - at least the 'Irina Mikheeva' with a 'confirmed profile' on Elena's Models is. Whomever is behind that profile will write personalized letters and answer all your questions. A woman will actually talk to you by way of a borrowed friend's cell phone.

Despite best efforts to get Elena's Models to blacklist this profile, they have not done so. They say an 'Irina Mikheeva' provided a copy of her passport and they talked to her over the phone and confirmed other identity details in order to give her a 'confirmed profile' listing.

A copy of a passport, however, is easy to forge, as are copies of ANY official documents. She told me she did not have a passport. Moreover, she said she did not have any photos of her scanned other than the ones she had already sent. Yet, other, different, photos of her appear elsewhere on this site. Doesn't add up.

Whomever is behind this particular scam is clever, in that they went the extra mile to scam Elena's Models, will write personalized letters, sound convincingly sincere, provide addresses and other seemingly credible information and make themself available to talk on the phone.

Nevertheless, after a bit of sleuthing, it's obvious 'Irina Mikheeva' is a fraud.
