While my memory is slightly foggy, he was around 55 years old and lived on the east coast of the United States.
He was in town because he’d met a girl on a foreign bride site, and was considering getting her a visa to come live with him.
This is not surprising when you consider the Russian woman’s reputation for combining beauty and brains in a potent mix.
Women who would be considered of model quality in the west are often only believed to be of average beauty in Russia.
Apparently, her friend who he met on one of his trips messaged him at the end, saying that, “If it doesn’t work out with [name], you and I could be together.” The girl he had flown all the way around the world for couldn’t be bothered to take him to the airport, either.
She basically blew him off, but low and below, as soon as he returned to the States, she was messaging him.
She calls him and tells him that she’s held up at customs, she can’t get through. He tries to solve the problem, and ends up just upsetting her. He has not heard from her since, and I’m sure he never will.
Then she calls to tell him that she’s through customs, but angry at him. I don’t know whether she asked him to transfer money for the hotel, but it wouldn’t surprise me. More than likely, the girl in the photo has no idea who he is.Typical sob stories told by Ukrainian brides as a way to scam men out of their money.Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure there are Ukrainian brides who genuinely want to find a nice guy and get married. It sucked for the American guy, but making those kind of huge financial purchases right off the bat are a surefire way to get yourself screwed. Yeah, the same guy was the “victim” of yet another Ukrainian brides scam less than six months after the first one.Why she didn’t meet him at the airport is beyond me (more on that later).Apparently this first meet went reasonably well—well enough that he decided it was a worthwhile invest to buy her a brand-new ,000 i Mac.This fella, obviously petrified of losing his foreign bride before he even meets her in person, starts calling her. He figures out what hotel she checked in to, and drives there. The girl he’s been talking with is clearly just sitting on her computer in Ukraine, bleeding him dry to the tune of nearly ,000. There are good Ukrainian girls out there in the world, but you’re certainly not going to find them on a foreign bride site in most cases. If you have the money to afford these kind of agencies, to pay the bills from afar, and to buy gifts—then guess what?
