The radio station received three fake dating requests in one day.
From Dinara, Tatyana and Ksenia.
Content such as
“Hi. How have you been? What is your name? Where are you from?
My name is Ksenia. I like to chat with you. What do you think of that?
That one was a short message and had an email address supposedly for Ksenia so the email recipient could reply and start up an online relationship no doubt leading to a scam.
The other two messages were basically adverts for a Russian dating service which again leads to a scam.
e.g. Hello sweetie.
How does it feel to be a loved one. I wish to feel it someday.
I am Tatyana, an educated middle class girl from Bryansk, Russia.
I am a doctor and earn a decent living. I am hard working and honest to my profession. Which implies I don’t have much free time. So I want to tell you straightaway that I am in search of my life partner.
The email leads up to a link to a Russian dating site megadatek.ru
This is a long winded way of getting someone to access a dating website.
Is the dating website real?
Is there actually a girl named Tatyana ?
We don’t know, but if you want to join a dating site then pick one in your home country with an excellent reputation as there are too many scam dating sites out there.
If you have any experiences with scammers, spammers or time-waster do let me know, by email.
