I say all of this because you need a little background to understand your Russian girlfriend.
She's tasted some freedom and though life may be hard in Russia for many girls, they have seen how much of the world lives, and they want some of the goodies they see their Paris and Amsterdam sisters enjoying.
This type of scammer hunts only the most vulnerable and inexperienced online daters.
The scammer produces a ton of impeccably looking fake documents, like irrevocable purchase orders, letters of payment, bank statements, etc, to convince the victim that the investment is real, and that together they would be able to make some handsome profit from the deal.
After receiving the loan or the pre-payment, the scammer disappears.
So, if you come waltzing into Saint Petersburg or Moscow and can offer a woman some opportunities that might be hard for her to come by on her own, she may just be a bit more receptive.
But don't think for one moment that money alone will buy this proud Slav.
