Lugansk dating agency
Most likely, they work on commissions, like telemarketers.The profiles show different locations and cities in Russia, Ukraine and other ex-Soviet Union countries.
Lets talk about individual scammers, those who place their profiles on the different online dating services, free and paid.
What we don't like about the existing Russian scam lists is that they provide the impression that there are thousands of Russian scammers out there, and behind each scam profile stays different girl (or guy, whatever). We are absolutely convinced: Russian girls are NOT scammers!
Most of the Russian scam (about 90% of it, if not more) originates form the same 2 sources: REPUBLIC OF MARI EL in Russia and LUGANSK in Ukraine.
The other 10% originates from pro-daters, mostly from South of Ukraine, like Odessa, Nikolaev, etc..
Of course there are some freelance scammers out there (monkey see monkey do), but their number is very insignificant compared to the number of scam profiles generated daily by Mari El and Lugansk.
Yes, there is a criminal organization in Mari El behind the Russian scam and in Lugansk behind Ukrainian scams.
