Because why else would you seek to meet someone from abroad, if not for a relationship?
It takes 20-30 hours just to fly from a regional town in Russia to the USA or Australia.
Bottomless depths of Internet are bursting with never-ending scores of seemingly legitimate Russian dating sites full of model-like smiling cuties.
Should you check them out, just for fun, or is it better to stay away and stick with what you already know, your favourite local hangout for singles?
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.
At this point she will set the victim up as her knight in shining armor, the only one who can help her.
