Before You Cry “Scam”

16. October 2012 by Lorena 0 Comments

Occasionally, when things do not go the way that a gentleman desires on a Russian dating site, he can feel a niggling doubt about a lady’s intentions. “Am I getting scammed?” he might wonder.


But, take some time to seriously consider the situation before you accuse your new Ukrainian friend. It is very insulting to a Ukrainian lady to have her honor or intent questioned. Ukrainians take their personal honor very seriously. An accusation of scamming is a great affront, and treating her with suspicion can kill a budding romance.


A woman who is does not return your romantic interest is not a scammer. The ladies on our site are seeking romance, just like you are. They have preferences and tastes. Just like in local dating, not every person you talk to is going to wish to pursue a romantic relationship with you.


You can’t find out if someone is a scammer by asking her to do things for you, like dance on camera or hold up a certain number of fingers. It is impolite to subject ladies to demands. The ladies are not obligated to obey orders; remember, you are on a dating site!


The ladies who go to our partner sites in Ukraine and Russia are very carefully screened for the protection of our clients. Scamming is extremely rare, and is dealt with swiftly when it does occur. We take scamming very seriously. For your protection, we recommend the following:


  • Never send cash directly to any lady. Requests for money for travel, a sick relative, or any other emergency expense are a red flag.
  • Ladies are not allowed to ask for gifts on our site. While gifts are a fantastic way to show affection, they should never be demanded or expected.
  • If you are ever asked for gifts or money on our site, notify customer service immediately. We do everything in our power to protect our valued customers from rarely occurring by troubling scams.


Be aware of the signs of scams, but do not be looking for one in every interaction. Suspicion and accusations are unattractive, and can sabotage a gentleman’s chances of finding romance. Go into Russian dating with both your heart and your eyes open. Realistic expectations and the openness to find the right lady for you increase your chances of finding true love.
