How To Avoid Russian Woman Scams

Updated on August 25, 2015

No matter why you might be looking for love online, Russian woman scams are common. Whether the woman seems too good to be true or they want money, you need to be careful with your hear and with your bank account when you’re dating online. Choosing to be careful with Russian woman scams will allow you to find the real Russian woman of your dreams, not just an anonymous scam artist who isn’t interested in making you happy.

Does She Seem Too Good?

When you first meet a woman online, you don’t think about Russian woman scams.  What you do think about is how great this woman is.  In fact, she seems almost too good to be true.  She seems like she agrees with everything you say and she doesn’t seem to have anything wrong with her.  While this might certain be your fantasy, this also doesn’t seem to be very realistic.  A woman who doesn’t have a few flaws or a few things that don’t match up to you may very well be a woman who isn’t real.  If you notice that she’s always on the same page as you, you might want to be a little skeptical.  Some men will even look up her profile on other Russian dating sites to see if she’s the sort of scam artist who simply tries to lure men in with her perfection.

What Doesn’t She Say to You?

In many Russian woman scams, the woman might not say a lot about herself. She might always want to hear about your love, but not reveal much about her life or her background. And while you might enjoy talking about yourself, when you want to have a relationship with someone else, this will require that you learn about her as much as she learns about you. You want to ask her questions and see if she replies in a truthful way. A woman who seems to be hiding herself from you might be a woman who really isn’t a woman at all.

Is She Only Asking For Money?

One of the biggest red flags for Russian woman scams is that you are talking to a woman for a while when she suddenly needs money from you.  The story is probably a sad one, one that tugs at your heartstrings.  You might want to help her and you may have the ability to help her, but does this mean you should?  In most cases, the ‘women’ who ask for money from you are the ones who aren’t real.  They are often just scam artists trying to see if they can make money from a man who thinks they are helping a person they love.

      Your photos just fine! However there are no boundaries for some businesses. Informative hub.

      I get those too - weekly! I can only assume Julie-Ann = Julian and they think I'm male? Is my photo THAT bad?

      What a unique Hub. My wife advised me to also watch out for Russian women scams. Every once in a while, I do get emails saying how a woman from another country has found me on Hubpages. Amazing, isn't it?
