Today I feel the need to share a Ukrainian bride horror story/scam that was recently pulled on an acquaintance of mine.
To give some backstory, I met this guy in July 2016 in Odessa, Ukraine.
Despite the obviousness of the situation to an outsider, it happens. This time it was even worse, but it reads almost the same.
Again, he met a girl on a dating website or agency, the majority of which are He meets this girl, and again he “falls in love”. “She” is gorgeous (the young one), you can see for yourself: Before he knows it (within two months), they’re making arrangements for her to come to the United States and live with him. She has to fly back ASAP, and could he please send some money to help with the funeral arrangements? The funeral is taken care of, but now she has nobody else left for her.
And again, he had to take a taxi way out to her town or village outside of Odessa.
