Of course, a scammer should be not only a sociable person, but also a good psychologist.
Because the size of the scammer’s “salary” (students mainly engage in scamming in marriage agencies of Ukraine) depends on the ability to lead his victim a dance.
They often work in groups and set up multiple ads / accounts on many large dating sites. The scam consists of locating lonely females living in the US and Canada, establishing romantic relationship with them, and then asking them for an emergency loan needed to complete some kind of impending business transaction, like an investment (for example, in Russian oil, minerals, or other natural resources).
The scammer produces a ton of impeccably looking fake documents, like irrevocable purchase orders, letters of payment, bank statements, etc, to convince the victim that the investment is real, and that together they would be able to make some handsome profit from the deal.
