Unlike Nigerian dating scam, there is a lot of information about Russian scam on the Internet. 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. Once you send her money, she is gone. Or, she will ask you for more money and then will be gone. We will not repeat what others have been said, for the detailed info on Russian scams please visit Russian Detective website.

There are many Russian scam lists out there: some good, some not so good. Many Russian marriage agencies are scam too.

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. 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). This is not true!

We are absolutely convinced: Russian girls are NOT scammers! Most of the Russian scam (about 90% of it, if not more) originates form the same 2 sources: REPUBLIC OF MARI EL in Russia and LUGANSK in Ukraine. The other 10% originates from pro-daters, mostly from South of Ukraine, like Odessa, Nikolaev, etc.. Of course there are some freelance scammers out there (monkey see monkey do), but their number is very insignificant compared to the number of scam profiles generated daily by Mari El and Lugansk. Yes, there is a criminal organization in Mari El behind the Russian scam and in Lugansk behind Ukrainian scams.


The profiles show different locations and cities in Russia, Ukraine and other ex-Soviet Union countries. But every time a bad profile is placed on our site, or we ask the victims to forward us the full e-mail headers of the scammer's e-mail, they ALWAYS show the same IPs and the same Internet Service providers. Sometimes the scammers change ISP (or simply hire new folks to do the job). Then all scam, like with a magic wand, starts originating from that new ISP. If we ban that IP range from our site, all registrations start coming through anonymous proxies.

The Mari El criminal organization is leaded by men, they hire people from Yoshkar Ola to do the dirty job for them: place profiles and conduct the correspondence. Most likely, they work on commissions, like telemarketers. The activity of this criminal organization is enormous, they place hundreds of profiles out there every day. The photos of girls on the phony Russian profiles come from different sources. Sometimes they use the photos of Russian models and celebrities. But they also pay women a minimal fee to sit and pose for pictures and to pick up money at the Western Union. The girls on the pictures sometimes know what's going on and how their pictures are being used, sometimes don't. The gang may also have accomplices in certain Western Union locations.

Their profiles may say whatever: that they are from Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Samara, Volgograd, Chelyabinsk, Kiev, Odessa, sometimes even USA. But as you know, the money wired via Western Union can be picked up at any city and at any Western Union location, so it doesn't mean anything. The scammers are in Mari El and Lugansk. Period!

Lets call things their names: there are people out there who are interested in building the public opinion that those are all freelance, not connected with each other scammers. They deliberately draw attention away from what is going on in Mari El. That's all information we can release to public right now, maybe later we will be able tell you more.

There is also a lot of scam going on in Lugansk. Just like Mari El is the scam center of Russia, Lugansk is the scam center of Ukraine. All scammy Ukrainian profiles come from there. No matter what the profile says: Donetsk, Kharkov, Kiev, whatever, this is all Lugansk gang. Look at e-mail headers and you will see Lugansk there. They have their own "specialization" though: translations scams. If Mari El mostly scam for visa and ticket, Lugansk scams for translation services. But Lugansk scammers are easier to detect by their photos. Mari El uses photos of real girls, while Lugansk uses obvious photos of models, they smell scam a mile away, only blind will not see! The Lugansk scammers try to avoid this site. They barely ever try to register here, while Mari El girls are like roaches: you kick them out through the door, they climb back through the window.

Unfortunately, the online dating nowadays is turning into a one big scam. When we check out other dating services, we are horrified: 50% of males and 90% of females (just think about it!!!!) of their photo galleries are scammers. This is a fact! Those cute blonde girls from the United States in reality are scammers from West Africa or Mari El, Russia. If you want a scam free dating, sign up with our site! We don't inflate our database with scammers. We maintain it small and clean, always putting quality before quantity. We don't care if we have less members than other dating services, at least we know they are all real people, and that's the only thing that matters. If our members say they are from the US or UK, we can 100% guarantee you they ARE from US or UK, and NOT from Nigeria, Ivory Coast or Russia. If a Russian girl on our site says she is from Moscow, you can be 100% sure she IS from Moscow, and not from Mari El.
