I received an Email from a young women in Russia with a "sob" story about trying to find a "good man" to fall in love with and possibly send for her to marry. Currently there are thousands of these scams going on all over the world.
Buyer be ware, most are scams for money. It's a dead give away when they don't ask for a photo or answer any personal questions, but rather profess to fall in love with you in less than two weeks and then claim they have vacation time to come to be with you, but need money for tickets, travel expenses and proof of financial stability. They will not allow a bank transfer, since that is traceable and it can be reversed. The stories only vary slightly and the pictures they send are very tempting and usually sexual in nature.
This one claimed to be an orphan with no relatives and few friends. She spoke of all her dreams that she wished could come true and preyed on you for pity to save her.
I checked with the Russian embassy and there only advise was to ignore any such emails, which I now plan to do, but there are so many lonely men that are very vulnerable to these women and those that do try to marry them find out they are only looking for citizenship in America. There should be a central agency to list as many names as possible to check before falling victim to these scams.
