Are Professional Photos the Sign of a Scam?

25. July 2011 by Christy 0 Comments

While most men enjoy the professional profile photos on, others are suspicious, believing the beautiful pics are the sign of a scam. However, there's no reason to worry.


Some critics argue that there’s no way Russian women can afford professional profile photos and that sites that feature professional pics must therefore be a scam. However, this simply isn’t accurate. Many of our Russian agencies have their own onsite studios or can refer ladies to photographers who will offer the women a deep discount. In addition, professional photo sessions in Russia are not as expensive as they are in Western countries, so many women don’t think twice about hiring a professional photographer. Why wouldn’t they take advantage of this low-cost, convenient service?


Many critics also object to professional photos because they believe such photos are meant to lure in as many men as possible. And they’re right. Isn’t the whole point of online dating, Russian dating included, to attract as many potential mates as possible? The ladies understandably want to improve their odds of finding someone special and understand that beautiful, professional photos generate more interest than blurry, amateur pics. Again, why wouldn’t the ladies want to enjoy the benefits of professional photos?


Are professional profile photos the sign of a Russian dating scam? No. The ladies simply want to look their best and know that professional photos are a fun, easy, and effective way to attract the attention of a special gentleman. Give the ladies the benefit of the doubt before jumping to conclusions.
