Russian brides are the most popular type of mail order bride. However, when going into this type of market, there are most scams than honest deals. Many people turn to the Internet to find love. There are millions of online dating consultants and plenty of mail orders. However, how do you know that you are being scammed? Look for the following signs. If you can recognize any of them to your situation than you are most likely being scammed!
Well first, you should be caution with anyone online dating or brides. When you put your profile on site, you should let yourself go and place a picture online. Most of the time people only search pictures so if youíre serious, add a pic. If someone responses to your profile and claims to be in love at first sight, stand back.
There is no such thing, even if they do have a legitimate feeling about you, itís not love! No one can fall in love to a profile. Next, think about the Russianís picture. Did it look professional? If so, then donít keep an interest because most Russianís who are there for love or marriage, donít get professional pics done. You should look at their income and guess their personality. If the picture contradicts, your impression of the woman, than itís not the person or itís a scam. You do have a possibility of getting an honest profile and done by professionals, but it wonít be model quality.
Once you get to know someone (a couple of responses), you should ask her to take a picture of herself in front of a landmark like the Kremlin or in her garden or something that will look like the Russian environment. You can possible trap the person early one by asking for more pictures. If the person is using pictures of someone else, she/he may forget what they sent you to begin with and then you can call them out if there are discrepancies.
Look at the letters; do they look like they are mass-produced? Is your name only placed in a couple places all the time? Also, pay attention to content. If you are never asked about your life, family, the city you live in and so on, then they arenít interested in meeting you. Also, make your letters personally like your dog died or you took the long way home today and if you get no response to that than the letters are mass produced and itís a scam. There are so many more things that you can pick out of the conversations or letters that will tell you itís a scam. You shouldnít allow yourself to be blind and specially look for some of these tips.
When it comes to Russian Brides, you must be careful and try to find any signs of a scam. It can be hard to judge someone whom youíve become accustomed to lean on, but it must be done to protect your privacy, feelings, and bank account.
