Dating scams out of the ukraine
Online dating site like Flirt can be a viable option in this case.
The site has a prominent presence on Twitter and Facebook while its blog post also guides users on safe online dating.
You can easily verify the legitimacy of any profile on social media by searching for the profile picture on Google.
If it appears in results other than the social media account then you must understand that the account is fake.
Or instead of the "database method", sometimes they just put their email address in disguised form ("elena12321 at ya hoo com") in their profile on a site like
ALL girls on Match claiming to be from Russia/Ukraine who post a disguised email address like this are Russian scammers.
In this article, we will discuss some of the steps that you can take to identify and protect yourself from online scams, especially online dating scams.
Imagine a scenario where you have started a conversation with someone on social media just because they look “cute” in their profile picture.
This can be a little harder to detect because they do actually interact through the site until they can get you engaged in a direct email communication.Here’s how: A scammer will always hide their face from the victim and make excuses to call you or not show their face.If the person you are talking to claims living in another city or country ask them to show their face on webcam to prove their identity and in the event they object with nonsense excuses or suddenly start avoiding you, they are most likely a scammer.They just put all the email addresses they can collect through this method into a database for later use.And the "Russian woman" who writes you later won't usually be the pictures on this profile.
The picture in the profile was just the bait used by Russian scammers.
