Lately, we have received many letters
from men who have met an alleged Russian woman on a local dating site and
doubt their authenticity. As a rule, those affected did not have a special
interest in getting to know a Russian woman, or on international dating ,
but were looking for a partner from the area. But on these portals they
were contacted by pretty ladies from Russia and thus came into
conversation with them.
These "women" insist on
swiftly exchanging e-mail addresses. It is not uncommon to receive a
request in the second letter to contact the lady by e-mail. You want to
continue the exchange of messages outside the partner exchanges. There
they can pursue their plan undisturbed.
Therefore, scammers outside the brokerage look for contact
Their dating profile could be reported and blocked due to complaints from
Conspicuous spam activities are detected by the anti-spam mechanisms of
the marriage agency.

Do you feel familiar with this situation?
Did you meet an Eastern European on a local dating site? Such a situation
you should consider skeptically .
One exception is the Russian women, who have been living in Canada or
Europe for a long time and already speak good English. These ladies
usually do not have to hide their country of residence and usually give
the correct dates in their dating profiles again.
The reasons why you should deal with such contacts carefully and why it is
unrealistic to meet an authentic Russian woman (who also lives in Eastern
Europe) on a regional dating portal.
How could an average Russian find a local portal for personals?
Think about how to search the internet? You open a search engine, such as
Google or Bing.
The same goes for the women. They use search engines that are operated in
Russian. For example: Google.ru, Yandex.ru, Rambler.ru or Mail.ru. The
results are also presented in Russian.
A local marriage and dating sites can not be found or you need to use
certain terms in English, such as " singles near you" , " local personals
" or " dating in the area " that are foreign to an average Russian woman.
Nor are you Russian pages presented (in Russian), if you use search terms
for "Dating Russia".
In which languages is the brokerage exchange to serve?
Local personals portals and dating sites, which are specialized in finding
acquaintances in a particular area, are usually only available in English
So check if the portal where you met her is also in Russian. If not, not
only the question of how to find the portal, but also how to log in there?
What are we aiming for? The "Scamming business" is distributed worldwide.
It is quite possible that the fraudsters, so-called romance scammers who
are active on local partner exchanges, are also in Europe.
This also explains how they find dating portals and register there. Money
transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram make it possible to
pick up the money sent from any location.
Where can one get to know a real Russian woman?
Get to know a Russian woman safely on a specialized East-West partner
exchange or a traditional dating service.
Such East-West dating portals are translated into Russian, so that the
ladies from Eastern Europe can find the brokerage and sign up there
easily. These portals usually deal intensively with the security of
getting to know each other and checking the profiles.
How does getting to know each other?
If you love the outdoors, you will only find tested profiles of Eastern
European women. The women register on our Russian site. This is listed in
the Russian search engines.

of our portal, we offer extensive advice in cases of doubt.
