Scams

  • Most woman (and men) in Ukraine are good and genuine people
  • Unfortunately there are some women that try to scam, part-time or a full time professional job.
  • Asking for money or goods, or trying to get them in dishonest ways.
  • These girls can be scammers or girls you have met and do not like you romantically. Russian and Ukrainian woman are interested in foreign mens resources. When they do not want to have a romantic relationship with a man, they will try every way they can to get these resources.
  • Definitely never give anything before a meeting.
  • Afterwards give great consideration to this and if a woman asks for anything, I would not give it.
  • I would see it as a sign that the woman is outright trying to scam or she has lost interest and before saying this she is looking to get something (again, but it depends)
  • Odessa is scam city in every way, I have written an article about this here. Watch out for close cities Nilkolaev and Kherson also

  • Scams by the public:
  • Taxi drivers are renowned for increasing to price for foreign people. In Ukraine it can be x2 x4 the amount or more. It might not seem much for a western taxi, but it’s a lot for Russia or Ukraine. Be wary of any taxi driver that says they have a meter. Very few are government issued. Always ask for / check the price before getting in the taxi. Always barter for the price.
