Facebook dating scam by russians
Russian scammers post pictures and profiles of beautiful Russian women.
They may have downloaded the pictures of some Russian actress or model who you would not recognize, or they may have downloaded the pictures from a real girl's profile on another site.
The picture in the profile was just the bait used by Russian scammers.
Like when you offer to buy her flight tickets for her she'll claim that a Russian law requires that she buy her own ticket, so she really just needs you to wire money.
They just put all the email addresses they can collect through this method into a database for later use.
And the "Russian woman" who writes you later won't usually be the pictures on this profile.

Email scams are probably the most prevalent method of Russian scammers. Other times they contact you out of the blue via direct email.
