I had put up a profile on cupid just to be able to look at American ladies. Months later I got a generic letter that had been sent out to many men on the site
She is very patient, money was not mentioned for the first month or so. Things were hinted at as far as she was short on money, prices are high, etc. The passport/visa scam was attempted, but I knew of the restrictions for a Russian lady to visit USA, so I told her that won't work. She was fine and thanked me for my knowledge. She knows about Western Union, and does not like MoneyGram. I sent $50 to test her reaction, and she picked it up before sending me an email saying she had done so. I spent $100 on a background check, which verified that she is indeed a notorious scammer with other victims. Copies of emails sent to other men were identical to mine, minus the name changes.
