Russian scammers may contact you first or you may write them first.
I could go into detail, but just trust me when I say that none of these things are true! For instance: Between these telltale signs you can easily eliminate nearly any risk of email scams.
It's half their life savings, you see, but they want their angel to be happy, and they know that she loves you and wants to be with you, so they will part with half their life savings... BUT, if you could wire her the money she will certainly repay you as soon as the problem is resolved...

Email scams are probably the most prevalent method of Russian scammers. Other times they contact you out of the blue via direct email.
An email scam is simply a case where some volume operation (could be a man or a woman, and may be in Russia, Ukraine, Nigeria, or New Jersey) contacts you by email, engages you in communication, and eventually attempts to bait you into sending money.

But it is an open site where thousands of members post their own profiles, so scammers slip through sometimes.
But be ready if you post profiles on Russian Cupid (formerly Russian Euro) or Ukraine Date.
