Kazakh dating scam
To see what kind of person you are dealing with, you may just mention that you are in a bad financial situation yourself and would love to help her with money but cannot do that at the moment.If she is genuinely attracted to you, as she says, then she will understand.Do not send her any money, offer to buy her a ticket instead. Even if she writes to you that an airline ticket would cost two or three times less in Russia (which is questionable) , do not send her the money! Most likely you are being set up for a "visa and tickets scam" when a bride asks you for money to pay for her tickets and visa and then disappears once she gets it. Ask her to provide more details on the University that she is going to come to study at, and then contact that University.
She cannot file for a fiancée visa if the two of you have never met before.Check all black lists widely available on the Internet. You are much older than her and so far have not been popular with the women of her age? Many girls in Russia do prefer dating older men, and 10-20 years difference is very common.But be aware that many scammers commonly prey on older western men, since they are considered to be a pretty easy target.Ask her to send you a scanned picture of her visa and then contact the Embassy that issued the visa to confirm its validity.Some ladies offer to come on a work visa and then to get a fiancée visa later. If you believe her intentions are pure, buy her the tickets instead of giving her the money.
