How do Russians throw their own in the US
The Russians who recently arrived in America are a gold mine for their fellow countrymen. Alas, there are enough people eager to make money on their own compatriots in the United States. That is why many Russians living in the States for a long time advise not to mess with their fellow countrymen. About how Russians throw their own people in America, in their blog for “Yandex Zen”Said Lena Lukashova.
The most popular way is through parcels. You don't need to work, you just need to receive to your address and then forward the boxes. Something completely harmless: gadgets, clothes, kitchen utensils, etc. The payment for such "work" per week is $ 500-1000.
In fact, it turns out that all these parcels were bought with stolen credit cards. As you guessed, a person who agreed to send them becomes an accomplice in the criminal chain. It’s very difficult to prove to the police that you knew nothing and were not an accomplice.
Recently, our compatriot got into such a scheme. Saved by the fact that she herself went to the police, reporting the incident. Otherwise, you face a prison term.
Another popular scam is to distribute tickets to events. Quite real. Concerts, theater shows, exhibitions. However, here too, stolen credit cards pop up, for which these tickets are ordered.
There are also more “creative” scams. One of our compatriots came across an ad in a Russian-speaking group in Los Angeles - a personal driver was required. The female employer immediately wanted to test the driving skills of her fellow countryman. And she asked to take her to the indicated point, in time it took half an hour. Then she left the car on a plausible pretext - to go to the ladies' room.
As you can imagine, she never came back using the “free driver”.
There are also more “long-playing” options. At one of the events, our compatriot meets another Russian. Just a soul mate, he understands one hundred percent. They begin to communicate, even visit each other. Then a friend suddenly gets into trouble: he needs money. Typically $ 1000-2000. The desire to help a compatriot overpowers caution. And then he just disappears, blocks the friend who helped on social networks and the phone.
Well, there are more than enough freshly baked migration lawyers among Russians in the USA. For a certain amount of crunchy dollars, for example, for $ 5000, many promise to obtain a residence permit in America. Then they begin to feed the compatriot with breakfast. Like, your documents have been submitted, wait, the process is not quick. The wait can last for years. As a result, it turns out that no documents were submitted, and the lawyer's office did not exist at all.
That is why many Russians in the United States are wary of their own. They can look closely for a long time before starting a conversation I am glad that there are enough decent Russians in America too. And people who are victims of fraudsters, willingly share information in order to warn other compatriots.
Alas, scammers create new accounts with the speed of sound. And decent people with photos in social networks carefully extend a helping hand to their fellow countrymen who are not aware that this hand wants to take away their last money.
