An 28-year-old African studying medicine in Russia paid his tuition by running an internet dating scam in which he pretended to be a beautiful Russian woman searching for a mate. He posted a photograph from a magazine on the net, and convinced several British men to send “her” money for a visa so she could come and meet them. After the woman failed to arrive, several of the men complained to the Russian police, who arrested the student.
So watch out for that internet spam touting “Russian Beauties Who Want to Meet You.” You may be sending sweet stuff to a male medical student.
