5 Tips to Avoid Being Scammed by a Russian Woman Online

As with everything online Russian women dating comes with risks. One of the main risks is being scammed. A pretty picture of a woman accompanied by everything a man wants to hear creates the perfect setting for a scam. Fortunately, it’s easy to avoid being scammed by Russian women, or those pretending to be Russian women online. You just have to date smart and know the warning signs. Here are five tips to avoid falling victim to a scam.

Although this isn’t a sure sign of a scammer, watch out for women who initiate communication. Yeah, maybe a woman is just very sociable and wants to reach out, but this is VERY rare. Russian women usually wait for a man to make the first move then interact with him if interested. The reason is simple – that is just how dating works in Russia. If you notice a woman putting in too much initiative to get in touch with you, it is wise to be wary.

Secondly, don’t fall for the whirlwind “love at first sight” romance. Scammers are looking to toy with your emotions by manipulating you into playing into the scam. The first step to doing that is getting you to let your guard down. If you’re talking to a woman and she declares her love too quickly, she’s trying to scam you. In most cases, Russian women wait for a man to declare his love for her further into the relationship then she does the same if she shares his feelings. Dating Russian women online isn’t much different than dating a Western woman. You meet, chat, engage in some video chatting, and feelings develop with time. Many men fall victim to such scams because they buy everything the scammer is telling them. A huge driving force behind believing everything the scammer says is misunderstanding Russian dating culture. They think relationships progress much more quickly when that isn’t the case at all.

Next, if the woman you’re corresponding with is suddenly faced with an emergency and needs money, it is best to move on. Chances are, this is just a story designed to make you, the intended victim, feel bad and give in because you want to help her out. Also, be warned that many of these scammers are experienced. They come up with believable stories that do pull at your heartstrings. Nevertheless, they are just that – stories. Additionally, never send money so they can visit you. They will never come. What will happen however is that you’ll send the funds for the trip and either you will never hear from her again or there will be excuses designed to get even more money from you like there were problems with her visa and so on. If you ever find an online connection worth exploring, always travel to see her, not the other way around. Well, unless she’s willing to pay her own way.

Fourth on the list of tips to avoid being scammed is to avoid women who refuse to video chat with you. If the only communication methods used are instant messaging and letters along with a picture or two, move on. Anyone can pull a picture from the internet and claim that it's them. Moreover, refusing to video chat is just suspicious behavior. What do they have to hide? The most probable answer is that the user isn’t even a Russian woman. No one looking for a Russian woman wants to hear this but those are the hard facts.

Another tip to avoid scams is not taking a connection offline too soon. Most who have been scammed took the “relationship” off the site soon after they connected and started to chat. If you think you’ve met an amazing woman who really likes you it’s obvious why you would want to do this but proceed with caution. Many international dating sites have safety features in place to protect users from scams.

Overall, avoid Russian woman scams online by never entertaining the idea of sending a woman money. That is not the purpose of these sites. If a Russian dating site has a gift shop that allows you to send a woman romantic gifts like flowers, chocolates and so on, that is fine but never send money.
