Did you know the word "scam" is understood in ex Soviet Union countries as specifically meaning swindling money using online dating.
But now it is not just a 'Boris The Blade' here and a respectable Mr. "Scamming" has become a large crime industry, where street-smart but not very ethical entrepreneurs rent office space, buy computers and supplies, and hire students with English skills to write and send scam letters. In the Russian psyche there is even an attempt at some justice as a weak one beats a strong one, a poor one wins over a rich one.
Scamming also has a colorful and "patriotic" meaning; duping the rich. For all the damage done, the scammers take large risks as Russian authorities regularly bust whole scammer crime rings here and there, and then hand out generous jail time.
