Guys, it may sound like a tasteless or perverted thing to do, but after hanging out with a buddy in Lugansk a few months ago, he put me onto a new way to check the girl you're writing to, but haven't yet met... Use any online translator, because the best results come when doing your browser search in Russian. Type into the translator the words 'prostitute, wh@re' and Russia or Ukraine. More specifically, Moscow, St Petersburg and Kiev are the main hubs.
No lie, I've even found that a girl I had been corresponding with on the Fiance.com site who claimed to be from Lugansk, advertises her "services" as a prostitute in St Petersburg, RU. Even had the same clothes on as she posted on Fiance.com.... Of course, in her prostitution ad, she was wearing less of the clothes! Some of these girls even post videos to display their 'goods' to prospective customers.
Now moderator, I'm far from promoting prostitution, but simply sharing one more weapon that can be used to combat the scammers. It's sadly amazing to find "your girl" in this way, but it does save from getting suckered in too deep.
The moderator shouldn't be worried about promoting prostitution!! Most of the big name dating sites advertise on porn and prostitution websites!! Many girls will work in massage, porn and prostitution once leaving the agencies!! Or,,, even while being in an agency!!
My personal take on it is that the prostitutes do the dating sites as a means of secondary income. They can sell their pics to an agency and let Boris write the letters, or write the letters themselves looking for the guy who will send them money.
The girl I mentioned that was on Fiance.com wasn't the brightest bulb on the tree. She claimed to be from Lugansk and gave a fake name. The real person could be found on vkontakte. During the money scamming she said that was her mother's maiden name, and gave me another not so fake name of another girl with a profile on vkontakte.
If you really want a prostitute, ask any taxi driver, hotel desk or the porter. They know. The hotel gets a percentage. The hotel porter tried to fix me up with his wife's best friend. He even showed me her naked picture on his phone.
That's creepy guys! All I can say is that I once found my female friend's pic under the prostitute ad. I definitely known that it wasn't she who posted it! She is married and has two beautiful children one of which is only 6mo! She was really surprised to hear those news from me. That pic was several years old and was taken from her hacked vkontakte account. She was not naked on that pic but looked pretty good. I'm just trying to tell you that accounts are often being hacked. Due to this I never post "doubtful" pics in any social networks, because it's hard to prove you are "clear" after that.
Hope this story will be useful for someone here.
