Russian Dating Scams...Breaking
Hearts and Bank Accounts.

Russian Heart Breakers.

Russian Dating Scams rake in tens of millions of dollars each year from unsuspecting victims.

Most are men. For some reason you don't find many women online looking for love in a rugged, handsome Russian hunk (who is poor and trying to escape to a new land and better life).

With an endless supply of photos of stunning, sexy young women it's no wonder Russian Dating Scams showing phony 'Svetlana's, 'Alena's and 'Sofiya's are breaking hearts and draining bank accounts around the world.

So for all you lonely guys out there hoping to find a soul mate and partner online be warned... don't stumble into a Russian Romance with your eyes wide shut.

The reality is... many of the fraudsters running these Russian Dating Scams are ruthless, ugly, criminals (often men) who hide behind fake pictures of pretty girls.

Some scams are perpetrated by one or two individuals.

Others are run by highly organized crime gangs run along the lines of the Nigerian 419 Scams.

Some gangs have dozens of gang members, each with their own particular skills and duties.

"Organizers" construct fake profiles using phony photos to use as bait. They map out online courtships, write phony scripts about eternal love and needing money (sometimes with trained psychologists helping).

"Executors" troll genuine online dating sites and data-bases to establish contact with potential victims.

Finally, multi-lingual "Communicators" go to work on their prey before the "Money Movers" take care of the scammed money via international money transactions.

Lonely, vulnerable men are seduced by romantic love emails pledging eternal love and gratitude... and sexy, revealing photographs promising sexual pleasures.

Unfortunately, many good-hearted, well-meaning, lonely guys are going to have their hearts ripped out and their wallets lightened.

One American victim of a Russian Dating Scam (who met 'Elena' on a U.S. dating website) was quoted as saying:...
"I never had a woman talk to me like this ever in my life. It wasn't hard for me to fall in love with her. She seemed so perfect." (, Nelson 2005)

Examples of Russian Dating Scams.

Analysts warn that "China and India are poised to out-think us and out-compete us by their sheer numbers" and that "there is no job security now".
