Email dating in ukraine

In over 10 years of visiting and living in Kiev we have never been the victims of a street scam and have never met anybody who has actually fallen prey to such a crime.We strongly suspect that the risk is blown out of proportion by other websites regurgitating content from elsewhere to fill their pages and appear authoritative. Supposedly the scammer walks ahead of the tourist and drops his wallet.A bogus policeman then appears and demands to see the tourist’s wallet.At some point during the inspection he secretly pockets some cash, before handing it back and informing the tourist he is innocent and can go on his way. But quite frankly, the idea of large numbers of fake police frequenting Kiev’s tourist hotspots is preposterous.

We personally doubt whether they are as widespread as made out.In general, Kiev is as safe as most Western European countries.Organized crime does exist, but unless you’re coming to Kiev to open a chain of casinos the mafias are extremely unlikely to take an interest in you.The tourist, being good-natured of course, picks up the wallet and returns it to the scammer.The scammer appears grateful but, after counting the money in his wallet, announces that some of his cash as missing.
