Scam format for dating
I checked the immigration policy in Australia and we actually do have a requirement to pay security bond when application for visa is lodged in certain countries including Russia.I therefore totally believed her and paid ,350 AUD through Western Union on .Scammers targeting online daters are breaking hearts and draining bank accounts from bases in Russia, Eastern Europe, America, the UK and elsewhere in the world.The scammers typically play on the victim’s emotions, professing their love and gaining the victim’s trust before asking for money. I wish to share with everybody a financially and emotionally painful experience I had with an attractive 25 year old hairdresser from Yoshkar-Ola, Russia.She even talked about some local issues and cultural matters too.When I asked her why such a beautiful young lady is interested in me, she said that Russian men are alcoholics and that they do not respect women. I challenged Sofiya before she asked me for any money and said that her communication style fits perfectly into the "scam pattern".Below is the sad story of the victim of a super-scammer: a highly advanced Russian scammer who duped this man out of ,625 and broke his heart. On 7 April 2006 I received an email from a lady named Sofiya through an internet dating site. We then started exchanging emails and photos and I was fooled by her emotional and warm words.
On 24 April 2006 Sofiya asked me for money to purchase an air ticket, visa, passport, insurance etc with a total amount of ,845 USD which I paid via Western Union on . Then on whilst she was supposedly in Moscow collecting her visa from the Australian Embassy, I received an urgent email request (from an internet cafe apparently) for ,300 AUD to prove to the Embassy, her financial capacity to stay in Australia during the one month period.She even telephoned me two times and we talked on the second call and she sounded very distressed begging me to pay that amount via Western Union.
