This is a scam and you should never send money for it!
There are several fake website masquerading as Russian marriage agencies promising to bring Western men and Russian women together.
Typically, a man comes into contact with a scammer through an online dating agency.
The scammer will have photos showing a young and attractive woman though her profile may say she’s from America or England.
This is a broad example of Russian online dating scams.
With many people catching on to this scam, the scammers have “improvised” their story a little.
They do not ask for money for a ticket or visa but instead send you a scanned visa as “proof”.
The scammer will later explain that she’s from Russia but couldn’t select it as an option on the dating site.
In the first few letters the scammer will say what a good woman she is and how hard life is in Russia.
After some time, she will tell you she cannot continue communicating with you as she cannot afford to pay for the translation service anymore.
