A great example of a Ukrainian dating scam: romantic Miss Margarita is looking for love & passion…
The topic of today’s article is spam in the Ukrainian dating industry. Some of my readers have become or are victims of Ukrainian dating scammers. And that’s a sad fact that there are still thousands of scammers who take advantage of lonely men and shatter their dream of finding a soul mate for life.
Therefore, gentlemen, I would like to bring an example of a Ukrainian dating scam. The story starts with an online dating profile on a dating site which is like thousands of other profiles, namely: a beautiful Ukrainian woman is looking for love abroad:
And beautiful and romantic Margarita writes to you first (oh, lucky you!):
The communication develops and it seems perfect to you. Margarita is an open woman who really wants to start a genuine relationship and tells a lot of things about her life and experience in relationships without a happy ending:
The communication with Margarita goes very well when you, suddenly, get a strange mail like this:
And here is more:
These two messages is a typical example of a Ukrainian dating scam. The so called “translation agency” from Ukraine answers to the mail on Margarita’s request. Why has this Margarita asked the agency to reply to the man? Cannot she answer by herself? I’ve googled the agency and found no information about them. They have no reviews, no articles and no official homepage. It is very strange, isn’t it?
The man cannot write to Margarita directly. The “translation agency” has blocked the access to the mail box of Margarita. Why?
Here is the answer from the “agency”:
Conclusion: So if you communicate with Miss Margarita (<firstname.lastname@example.org>), you have to know that she is a scam and she uses a fake profile (I am sure that the real name of the woman is not Margarita either. I have no idea who she can be though).
