Example Scam Messages

Until you actually spoke Japanese dating site scams them, you weren't sure if the person you were writing to was a real woman or was named "Yuri". The internet was rife with warnings even back then about Japanese dating site scams "Yuri scams" where they need money for a passport, then a plane ticket, then you never hear from them again.

Not sure why they picked "Yuri" as the name of the guy operating the scam. I believe I was told one of the few who was caught was an old, fat, bald guy named "Yuri", but I have Japanese dating site scams idea if there was any truth to that. Trying to decide which fits better: A fool and his money are soon parted or there's a sucker born every minute.

As if Japanese dating site scams Japan women were a superior human being when it comes to love relations. From a foreigner point of view that felt really weird, but I know Japanese dating site scams males pay everything to women when they try to date them so I wonder if Japanese males would fall deeper into Japanese dating site scams scams.
