Anti-Scam Guide - Avoid fake Russian Brides and Russian Dating Scams

Some time ago there was a big article in Wall Street Journal about identity theft which is one of the fastest growing crimes in US. With major credit card companies and banks one would wonder why these companies have not created effective policies to protect their clients from fraud. Scam, very much like identity theft in US, is one of the fastest growing crimes in Russian dating industry. With all the technological advances it is increasingly difficult to identify scammers. We believe that irrespective of which Internet dating company you use to meet your date, the single most effective way to protect yourself from scam and fraud is to build awareness, use common sense and follow a set of simple rules.

While we do have advanced anti-scam measures in place which are based on technical analysis as well as telephone verifications of high-risk members, these measures cannot provide full protection against scam and fraud.

Additional advice

If you do wish to proceed with travel arrangements, we strongly recommend that you deal with a verified licensed travel agent preferably based in your country. A lot of major cities in US, UK, Australia, France, Germany, New Zealand and many other countries have Russian travel agents. When you deal with these agents you have more protection than in Russia especially if you pay by a credit card.

If you are dealing with a reputable licensed travel agency in Russia, Request the agency to obtain a copy of your lady's passport before making any arrangements. It is also a good idea to make all arrangements with an option to cancel at any time.

Background checks

It is possible to carry out a background check of any lady you are communicating with. A background check includes services such as checking whether the name and address of the person in question exists in official records; whether any criminal proceedings have been issued against the person and some other services. We do advise our members to watch out for common signs of scam. In most cases you can avoid costly background checks by using common sense. At we do our best to screen out scammers with various means including phone interviews. Please be advised, however, that we do not carry out background checks on any members who post ads on our network.

Please always contact the dating service provider if you have any doubt or require further assistance.

Phone Verification has a very clear policy on scammers. We verify all suspicious profiles as identified by a complex scoring-system in the same way Insurance companies evaluate risk. While phone verification cannot provide 100% guarantee that the person in question is not a scammer, our experience shows that in most cases it is very effective. Please note, however, that does not carry out criminal background checks on its users. All users of the service are advised to take appropriate safety measures to increase awareness of possible risks associated with dating.
