The period from first contact to first cash request could be a few days or a few months but regardless how long you've "known" the person, a request for money is a scam.
The scammer will later explain that she’s from Russia but couldn’t select it as an option on the dating site.
In the first few letters the scammer will say what a good woman she is and how hard life is in Russia.
Such operations have been known to hire young Russian women to act as the voice on the other end of that romantic phone call.
After taking the time to get to know you, she says she's coming to visit you or wants to move to your country.
At this point she will set the victim up as her knight in shining armor, the only one who can help her.
She might just need money to pay her bills but will probably want desperately to come and visit him in his Western nation.
