    Andrew from the USE writes:
    This girl is definitely scammer and is not interested at all in getting married. It is quite possible that she uses other person's first and last name, and her pictures can be fake either. She contacted to me from an online singles ad website, and was very sweet in her writing and produced an impression of being innocent and honest girl. What put me on alert, was the fact that when I wanted to talk to her by phone through interpreter I hired for that purpose, she refused telling me she lives in such poor conditions her appartment didn't even have a phone. But she kept writing at with astonishing frequency, and her style was really hard to resist, even if my suspicions grew. After my persistent requests she final gave me an address telling she there lives in Yuzhno-Sakhalink with her mother. A friend of mine suggested that I do a little test by sending her flowers through international Russia based flowers/gifts delivery service. When I did, several days later I got email notification from the service that even the address didn't exist, say nothing of the person. This Tamara Repina or whoever stands behind her is definitely a scammer, so, please, put her on your blacklist of the names of known Russian scammers so that other single men wouldn't get trapped and become victim of the defraud scheme that girl or people posing as that mail order bride Repina, who may be totally fake as well as her scam letters. She had asked me for money to pay for her visa and air tickets so she would immediately visit me in America in order to get married.

    Green Card Scam Is Worse Than Immigration Visa Scam

    Among variety of Russian dating/marriage scam types the so-called Green Card Hunter scam is considered the most dangerous, and this is for good reason. These women target not just American men, but also men from Canada, Great Britain, Australia, or generally any other western country offering good standard of living. They regard single western marriage minded men as sort of vehicle to help them immigrate and receive permanent residence status within the shortest possible period of time. Potential victim needs to be rich enough to be able to bear all visa and the immigration process expenses, and possibly, if looking further, be capable to pay good financial settlement when ending in divorce (for the divorce is also what they normally plan while still in Russia or Ukraine, or any other former USSR country).

    Typically this sort of scammer is a woman with a child from her previous marriage to a Russian husband, and often after a second divorce, greedy for gifts, emotionally unstable, with abrupt changes in her mood, but generally with a clean background record. Even if you hire a private investigator to run sort of a background check on her before making up your mind to travel to Russia to meet her in person, you'll discover nothing special except for her divorced status or that she's actually in the process of divorcing her Russian husband (maybe, the second one).

    Normally these con artists are well aware of the fact that legislatures of the developed countries of the West have enacted strict laws providing for protection of foreign spouses of their citizens, and they are informed about the ways they could benefit from those provisions, namely from the right to keep the right to apply for residential status/citizenship in case of getting a divorce on pretext of being abused in spousal/domestic relationship. It is to be taken into account that these Russian female scammers are typically sly enough to fake the signs and even produce witnesses of physical, sexual, or emotional abuse that actually took no place in reality. Creativity is what they by no means lack.

    In many cases they would instruct their own child or children what to say so their accusations against their American or Western European husband would look and sound convincing. The existing legal system of the western countries makes it very difficult for husbands of mail order wives to prove they are innocent victim of a trivial Russian marriage scam that had started online on the Internet many months ago, rather than abuser or offender. Laws do protect a woman and her children. If ultimately you do turn smart enough and act intelligently to defend yourself, you, as a husband, all the same will end up emotionally broken, and good for you, if not totally destroyed financially. Therefore think twice, or better ten times before hurrying to enter marriage during the time she is still on her fiancee visa stay in your country. Think carefully, observe her behavior, and do not hesitate to dismiss you plans of marriage should you notice any small unfamiliar and unpleasant signs of behavioral change in her. Hopefully you'll be not that one western man a Green Card scammer designated as a victim to be used in her predatory plans. Remember, such scam minded woman is who normally would leave the marriage as easily as she had entered it, leaving her (next) husband relieved from his financial savings and good thing for man, if not with unexpected burden of new financial obligations like court ruling ordering to support her until she finds new source of income.

    Love on the Internet

    Perhaps today's most popular form of meeting new friends and starting intimate relationships is through the internet, rather it be a dating service or various chat rooms. With such a rising popularity in this trend, I feel compelled to tell a short story and provide a few suggestions that may help you protect yourself from some of the evil and insanity lurking in those dark cyber-corners.

    First the story: I recently had a young man as a client who after having a three-year cyber relationship with a "female" we'll call Cindy, he was contacted by a third party "mutual friend" and told Cindy had taken her life; the client was devastated. My investigation quickly revealed Cindy and the mutual friend were one in the same, a young male adult... Read full story

    Scam Marriages - Another Side of Sham Marriage Intention?

    Sometimes Americans enter sham marriages with foreigners to help them by-pass certain immigration laws. And certainly, they do that not just like that, but for a monetary reward. In 2006 an employee of Arlington county clerk office, scrutinizing certain public records before archiving them, paid attention to somewhat unusual number of marriages with foreign nationals registered within a short period of time in the jurisdiction.

    Finally 24 persons faced charges either for facilitating sham marriages or marrying illegal immigrant for money. True thing, none of the fake "spouses" originated from Russia - most of them were from African country Ghana. From the US citizens involved in the fraud scheme, several already had criminal record, including one felon and one sex offender. Further investigation into the matter triggered the discovery of over thousand of fake marriages in Washington D.C. and the state of Maryland. Many of those fraudulent marriages had purpose of allowing illegal immigrants to get legal status of residence in America.
