And then all of a sudden you find it all (or so you feel). In any case, you think to yourself "anything for that wondrous woman" and take out your wallet. Man becomes awfully vulnerable when it comes to love. Because her English is not enough to let her express her feelings. No honest, respectable woman will EVER ask you for money in such situation. No matter how reasonable they might seem to you, any money requests are absurd and inappropriate. You by no means are encouraged to become cynical, paranoid, or scared.
You have just discovered someone that seems so right for you. You are in love, and ready to put the whole world to your foreign darling's feet. And you do want to know about her inner feelings for you, right? The girls' English might be poor, but it does not prevent them from being very convincing in their emails. They might simply imply it by complaining about how tough they have it. By complying with them you are setting yourself up for a big fall. There is no need to be distrustful of all foreign women seeking their love over the Internet.
In reality, many men become a victim of a Russian Bride Scam without even realizing it.
They are people dying to cash in on men's feelings. Well, the truth is he really does NOT want to meet someone like that. How would you react to that kind of heart-rending letter?
Such a request should immediately put a man on his guard. He sure is convinced this woman is completely innocent. After all, he wants to meet her just as badly, doesn't he?
Some want US Citizenship but the majority are scams and worse yet some of the scams fund terrorism.
How it works is they talk to you and eventually give you a reason why they are going to send you a check of x amount of dollars or they may even want your bank info to make a direct deposit.
Then in return you take the money once you have it and send it to somewhere else. They put funds into your account via a stolen credit card or check...
