Dating females info
Yes, there is a criminal organization in Mari El behind the Russian scam and in Lugansk behind Ukrainian scams.
The profiles show different locations and cities in Russia, Ukraine and other ex-Soviet Union countries.
The activity of this criminal organization is enormous, they place hundreds of profiles out there every day.
The photos of girls on the phony Russian profiles come from different sources.
If Mari El mostly scam for visa and ticket, Lugansk scams for translation services.
Their profiles may say whatever: that they are from Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Samara, Volgograd, Chelyabinsk, Kiev, Odessa, sometimes even USA.
But as you know, the money wired via Western Union can be picked up at any city and at any Western Union location, so it doesn't mean anything.
There are also pro-daters, but they are not the same as scammers.
Those are real girls, who invite you to visit them and start "milking": shopping, restaurants, gifts, etc... But this is happening in any country and in any culture, Philippines for example.
