internet is simply impossible. Seeking to erradicate scamming can be compared to preventing crime, a laudable idea, but hopelessly unattainable. So it is clearly up to each individual to be smart, to take care and in the field of International Online Dating, it is fair to say even more care should be excercised.
Unfortunately Former Soviet Union countries and particularly The Ukraine are way up there in the black lists. So how easy is it for scammers to continue their practices? Scamming is yet another widely accepted online word, much as geek and surfing the web, but lets be absolutely clear scamming is attempted theft, fraud, or deception.
How easy is it to perpetuate scamming? It’s ridiculously easy. The problem is that the internet has been from its inception a channel for the free and open exchange of information worldwide and as such is open to all, the good, the bad and the ugly, without distinction.
What does it take to become a scammer? Put the photo of a drop dead gorgeous woman on the net, pad it out with some wonderful words and that is it. I know that it surprised me to realise just how easy it is for someone, anyone to perpetrate this fraud, but believe me it is.
The collapse of the FSU was when it came sudden and dissordered and for many extreme finacial hardship set in. Yes there are a, a minority that have become rich, or even super rich, but in general these are materially speaking poor countries.
Equally, as is now clear, a surprising number of very beautiful women live in these countries and so scamming began. My area of expertise is The Ukraine and within this country the phenomenon of scamming maybe started in Lugansk,, a quite small city, way down in the south east of The Ukraine, it is an area, that until recently was famous for its mineral wealth and mining.
Lugansk has now become famous both within The Ukraine and among many men across the world, why? It was the address used by so many scammers over the years. Is there something different, or distintive about Lugansk? Are the ladies here more beautiful than elsewhere? There is nothing special about this city. There are many bigger, better and more beautiful Ukrainian cities. No it simply became the first city to be associated with this phenomenon. My friends from this city tell me that the practise of scamming began about 10 years ago, within Lugansk and these guys made a lot of money.
What did it take, it was so easy. Put a photo of a beautiful lady online; find some nice words to say and that was it. We men have always been attracted to a pretty face, a finely shaped female body and so in the early days it was jackpot time. The beauty of the ladies posted on the net led to a swarm of interest and traffic and the recipients, men or women (who will ever know?) could not believe their luck and soon the money began to pour in.
