So, the fact that you do not see a person on a black list in no way means that this person is "real" or honest.
Nothing short of verification of identity can confirm that someone is real.
The Translation Scams, on the other hand, are pretty specific to Ukraine alone.
This type of scam is based on the same idea - a young lady is looking for a soul mate abroad.
If any matches are provided, you can read through them carefully to see if it is a true match or just a coincidence.
Step 2: perform the same search using her email address, then her home address.
If they match, then most likely your lady is really involved. Is there any objective evidence of a scam being presented?
Or does it sound more like some disgruntled ex-penpal wenting off because she didnt appreciate his attention enough?Step 3: if nothing helps, manually go to 5 or 6 and look through reports and photos posted there. In fact, I would estimate that over 70% of scammers ARE NOT reported online, because people who got scammed often do not know that black lists exist, or how to use them.Maybe you will find her picture posted online somewhere under a different name. Some victims have such a limited computer knowledge, that a thought of navigating a forum or anti-scam site seems intimidating to them.If some other details match as well, there is larger chance that your lady is involved somehow after all. Is there anything else in her behavior that you feel uneasy about?Start verifying your ladys information and biographical info, if possible. If nothing else matches your ladys information, if you checked her identity and she really exists, and there are no other troubling signs in your ladys behavior, then I would recommend continuing your correspondence, but being very observant about her behavior, in case it will start becoming more troubling in the future.If you are not very confident in your computer skills, or if you do not have alot of time to spend on the research,you can ask someone else to do this research for you, or you can hire our company to do this research: back to FAQs I looked at the black lists and I checked her name, and I did not find anything. Other scam victims continue to hold out hope that the loss of money is reversible, and the scammer will return the money one day, so they do not post anything on the Internet in order to avoid angering the scammer.
