He’d plan to spend about ten days in Odessa, albeit that girl lived about an hour outside of the city.I believe he also had plans to meet one other girl, so he wasn’t putting all his eggs in one basket.After receiving the loan or the pre-payment, the scammer disappears.Warning: this type of a scam is dangerous because the scammers ask for a serious amount of cash up front, rather than "nickeling and diming" the victim to death.She calls him and tells him that she’s held up at customs, she can’t get through. He tries to solve the problem, and ends up just upsetting her. He has not heard from her since, and I’m sure he never will.Then she calls to tell him that she’s through customs, but angry at him. I don’t know whether she asked him to transfer money for the hotel, but it wouldn’t surprise me. More than likely, the girl in the photo has no idea who he is.This fella, obviously petrified of losing his foreign bride before he even meets her in person, starts calling her. He figures out what hotel she checked in to, and drives there. The girl he’s been talking with is clearly just sitting on her computer in Ukraine, bleeding him dry to the tune of nearly ,000. There are good Ukrainian girls out there in the world, but you’re certainly not going to find them on a foreign bride site in most cases. If you have the money to afford these kind of agencies, to pay the bills from afar, and to buy gifts—then guess what?
Computer-literate crooks (college students, pimps) who hire local female students, prostitutes, drug addicts, etc to pick up money in WU office.And again, he had to take a taxi way out to her town or village outside of Odessa.She made no efforts to see him again, repeatedly blowing him off because she was “busy” with a number of excuses. He was obviously quite upset with these developments.They often work in groups and set up multiple ads / accounts on many large dating sites. The scam consists of locating lonely females living in the US and Canada, establishing romantic relationship with them, and then asking them for an emergency loan needed to complete some kind of impending business transaction, like an investment (for example, in Russian oil, minerals, or other natural resources).The scammer produces a ton of impeccably looking fake documents, like irrevocable purchase orders, letters of payment, bank statements, etc, to convince the victim that the investment is real, and that together they would be able to make some handsome profit from the deal.
