I remember a story of American author O'Henry about the legendary scammer Jeff Peters who practiced his skills in matrimonial industry long before the Internet (I read it in grade 6 - of course, in translation to Russian).To refresh your memory, him and his loyal friend Andy Takers decided to organize a low risk venture by placing an ad at a newspaper for singles: "Wealthy nice widow is looking for an honest kind man who will take a good care of her and her capitals.When more than 2 years ago I organized a web page called Russian women Black List, my aim was to list disreputable and fraudulent services from international introduction industry.Placing there only comments of my visitors should ensure that it would give a real picture.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.
The history of marriage scams started ages ago, and it's not Russians who invented them.
But now it became a long list of names of individual scammers!
After reading the horror stories of this page many men say they feel frustrated with the whole thing. As a volunteer editor of this little forum, I can say that nothing can be further from the truth.
For example, some web sites have over 20.000 profiles, however this is not a reason to find any scam inside this Agency, it only gives you an impression how many profiles you can find on the 'entire' web.
So, the chance is present, but if you prepare yourself in a proper way, the risk of being scammed can be reduced to almost zero.
