The period from first contact to first cash request could be a few days or a few months but regardless how long you've "known" the person, a request for money is a scam.

Scammers operate from countries with low per capita income and even if a scam takes months to pay out it is worthwhile for them, even for just a few hundred dollars.

This is another common scam used by Russian scammers.

A Russian woman will start interacting you but tell you she cannot speak or understand English.

At this point she will set the victim up as her knight in shining armor, the only one who can help her.

She might just need money to pay her bills but will probably want desperately to come and visit him in his Western nation.

She will then ask you to send her money for her plane ticket and/or visa.

This ploy also relies on the stereotypical assumption that all Russian and Eastern European women want to move to or visit America, Canada, the UK or Australia which simply isn't the case.

Typically, a man comes into contact with a scammer through an online dating agency.

The scammer will have photos showing a young and attractive woman though her profile may say she’s from America or England.

She professes her love and gives instructions to send money through Western Union or Money Gram.
