Therefore a standard set of romantic letters exists, and the scammer typically uses these pre-written letters to correspond with all potential victims.
As a results of using the sets of pre-written letters, scammers tend to ignore questions posted to them, or when they do answer questions, they answer them only at the very beginning or at the very end of each letter.
"She" becomes extremely eager to meet in person, so she decides to find out what her options are as far as visas and travel fare.
The scammer will announce the good news (that she found out how to obtain the visa) in one of the letters shortly after explaining her undying love.
She will tell that she has found out everything she needs to do to receive a tourist (work, student) visa.
If the guy is determined to make her supposed trip happen regardless of the expenses, he sends the money again and again.The scammer replies positively to all of them and the process begins.Since a lot of letters need to be answered, the scammer usually does not have the ability to answer all of them individually.The scam will go on for as long as the guy is willing to continue sending money to help his "Russian princess" to get through her never-ending travel misadventure.The bait will keep the "flames of his love" alive by periodically chatting with him on the phone or sending him descriptions of "her" erotic fantasies.
