Avoiding the Pitfalls of Fraud

Most men agree that Russian women are some of the most attractive in the world, up there with the best of nations such as Brazil, Venezuela and Romania. But, is finding a beautiful Russian who is honest and legitimate, and who wishes to marry a Westerner a real option anymore? Fortunately, the answer to that question is still Yes. Finding those quality women, however, is an increasingly difficult task in today's Internet marketplace.

The best option for finding a Russian bride is to travel to Russia, explore and travel the country, get to know the culture and feel for the language, and take care of business the old fasioned way - that's right, walk right up and talk to her. If she doesn't speak English, you're on to the next. If traveling to Russia is out of the question, for financial or other reasons, finding a beautiful Russian bride is still possible, but requires additional caution.

Searching Google or Yahoo for Russian women will quickly uncover thousands of sites such as Date Russian Brides.com or Single Brides.com and many others. How do you know which is legit? You don't. No dating site on the Internet is immune from fraud and international scam, not one. This knowledge alone can save the customer a lot of time, money and heartache.

The warning signs:
1. A woman who falls in love quickly, too quickly.
2. A woman with model like photos, like out of a magazine.
3. A woman who soon asks for money for visa or "emergencies".
4. A woman who writes very general, almost form-like letters.
5. A woman who never speaks about herself or her family.

Now that you're aware of the warning signs and you understand that fraud and scams from Eastern Europe are rapidly rising, you're on the right track. But, what if the relationship progresses and you're considering a serious committment? Get her checked out with a professional investigation from Wymoo. You've been talking with this woman for 6 months, and you trust her, you say. Too many victims have said the same, and still lost big. How does it happen? In short, the scammers are professionals.

More than ever... be skeptical and get her checked out!

Best of luck,
