How to avoid russian dating scams

So say you have been duped by a Nigerian scammer and you contact the Nigerian police for help.

The sums usually run up to millions of dollars with the victim being promised a huge chunk of it for their "help".

This is a common ploy used by Russian and Filipino scammers to rob you off your money.

The general storyline is she will want to come visit you but does not have enough money and will ask you to send her money to help pay for the plane ticket and/or visa.

At the end of the day they all have the same basic plot – there is an emergency and won’t you please send them some money?
