Russian Brides Cyber Guide
By David Timmerman
The next girl that I started writing lived in Tashkent. After about four months of correspondence I decided I wanted to go visit her and try to get her in to come back with me. As I was waiting on my paperwork she told her x-husband that she was going to America with their son and he took legal action to stop her. She then was faced with a choice, her son or me. I don't have to tell you what the choice was.
After she told me that she could never leave her son I put an ad on a site where Russian women browse American men that would like a Russian wife. The first response I got from the ad was a woman (maybe) who lived in Kiev. Each letter accompanied a picture of a beautiful woman. There were two red flags that went off. The first all the pictures file names we names like: 76.jpg, 21.jpg. 15.jpg. That is a major red flag because names like that are what I use in designing a site like that are part of a library. A real girl will send pictures with names like: thepark.jpg, vacation.jpg, kitchen.jpg. The other red flag was she never really wrote her letters like she was writing to me. I would tell her about what is happening in my life and her reply would almost never address anything in my letter. All she would talk about is how important it is that we get together. Now comes the acid test.
After about a month of letters I had a business trip to Myrtle Beach. The business could be done in one day but it is business and Myrtle Beach so everything is a tax deduction. I planed the trip for 4 days. That way I would have one day of business and 3 days of the beach. When I got to town my truck was running on empty so I stopped at a convenience store to gas up. At the checkout I met a girl from Russia and she spent most of the 4 days with me. She told me that she was on a summer tour of the US with a group. I asked how hard it was to get a visa and she told me that she applied with 10 of her friends and she was the only one that was accepted. Guys, remember that when your girl tells you she can get a visitation visa. This was a great chance to learn about each other's culture. She told me that she learned a lot more about America hanging out with a real American that she could have with the tour group and I also enjoyed her telling me about Russia.
After I got back I wrote my girl in Kiev about my trip and told her about the girl from Russia. There was no reaction at all like she didn't care. Now I knew the she was a scammer and she just hasn't got around asking for money yet. Then she wrote that an agency could get her a passport and visa and all I had to do it tell her where to come. She still didn't ask for money so I wrote back and told her where to come. I knew that they couldn't get her a ticket here and she would have to fly to Atlanta but she wrote back telling me that she could fly here and she needed $1000 for the trip. After that I wrote her back and told her that $1000 wasn't in the budget at this time and I would have told her earlier if she asked. She wrote back telling me that she was going on vacation and that was the last I heard. I later found that the pictured she sent me were of a model in Moscow named Inna Gomez.
After that I had two other scammers contact me, one is on the black list.
I am now corresponding with a girl in Gomel and I am sure she it for real.
I wrote all this so you will get to know me and understand my background in Russian scams.
I want to start of reminding you that men in America get scammed by women here all the time. My best friend is a lawyer and he tells me about cases where men sent money to women under false pretenses. He even had a case where a woman was scammed by women. It's because American men have the idea they can buy a woman and American women will let you try. I proved it myself. I put an ad on a dating site with pictures of a beautiful woman and to date I have had 39 men write me back wanting me to come visit them as well as 9 marriage proposals including one from a US Senator (I will never kiss and tell). The point is I could easily write any one of these men with a story about how I would love to come see them but I don't have any money for a plane ticket and they would wire me anything I ask for. It would be like shooting ducks in a barrel. Even if they find the truth out no law was broken because they sent me the money of their own free will. American women have done this for years and now Russian women are learning what pushovers we are. My feelings about this is if you are dumb enough to send money to someone you met on the Internet because of some BS story it's like the old Toyota ads say: "You Asked For It - - - You Got It". The bad thing is you are screwing up a beautiful thing.
The reason for searching for a wife in Russia is because women in Russia are more interested in your warm heart and great personality, not your money. They are not looking for a meat ticket like American women and sending them money is changing that.
Most Americans think about buying everything including friendship, loyalty, trust, and love. All you need to do is take a good look at how American men act. They spend a lot of money on what they call power cars. They spend a lot of money on clothing. There are places where you may spend $50 on a meal where they will take their dates. I have know men that live in a shack where the roof is about to fall down so they can afford to make that monthly payment on their Vet or Trans Am. I also have known men to carry a large bankroll of about $500 or $600 to flash around. This whole thing is about impressing women.
By doing these things we have created our own flock of scammers right here in America. Many American men (including myself) will complain that women have heads like cash registers but they never think that we are the ones that created this.
Now that the "Cold War" has come to and end and we are learning that Russian people (especially women) are nothing like we were lead to believe we are finding out that the unspoiled Russian women are like a breath of fresh air next the money hungry American women that we have created. Well guess what, we are now doing this to the Russian women. Take a look at the men that are bragging about all they have. I had one man want to send a girl a picture of his sailboat rather that a picture of himself. He said: "I got to show her what I have". These girls are learning fast and now we have more and more that are only looking for money. I am writing this because this American men and Russian women is a great idea but we need to show the Russian women what great men we are. Not what we have. If a man is looking for a wife in Russia we must do the following:
Start off being honest with both the girls and ourselves about why you want a Russian bride. If you want a woman that will be impressed with you because you have money, nice cars, a big home, etc. - don't waste your time and money on a Russian bride. Stick to American women because the only woman that you will impress will think like the women here. I have never been one to go for using things like money to impress woman. I have never felt like I needed to because I am a nice guy. I am the type that will help my wife with the homework or do nice things for her. In my marriage I never cheated on my wife. The problem with that is American women have been trained to think that men are there to use so they will use a man like that. Russian women have not been trained to think that way so they will not use you. They will be happy to find a man that appreciates them and helps them around the house.
On a closing note I wanted to add that any man that sends money to a girl he meets on the Internet before they meet fact to fact deserves to get scammed - but I would like for men to think about what they are doing because this is the last hope for many men to meet a wife that will want a strong family.

No need saying that scammers can reach pretty much anybody, who is looking for a life partner online. However I noticed (after reading the letters shown in the list) that there are certain things, you can notice before the scammer reaches your bank account. Why do I write this? Because I am also one of you (more or less), somebody who is looking for a life partner and decided to give it a try online. I am a Russian woman of 23 y.o. and I think, I know what a woman is looking for online if she is not a scammer. So, here are my tips, I hope, they can help somebody to avoid a problem..."
