A call from 'Aleksandra'
I am just emailing you to let you know about Tinder scams in Saint Petersburg, Russia , so that you can inform your readers so that they don't suffer the same financial expenditure I did! Basically, I met a woman on Tinder back in June who I was chatting with for some time and then I arranged to meet her on Nevsky Avenue for a drink one evening. I immediately grew suspicious upon entering this bar as it was only around 7pm and the place was quiet yet it had 1 or 2 security guys on the door, plus my instinct was telling me that the staff there knew my "Date" without any of them actually acknowledging each other, and in addition there were a couple of attractive girls sat at the bar alone. Even though I had these instincts, I still stayed as I had never heard of people being scammed in this way in Russia, or anywhere else for that matter and I am very well travelled.
