Another source is in Lugansk and Donetsk (in spite of the war going over there, believe it or not! In most cases you can tell that the girl is a scammer just by looking at her profile. Most scammy profiles start with words "I the sociable girl", "I the cheerful girl", or whatever, with "am" omitted.
They are actually from Mari El, but just saying they are from Kazan.
If this is the kind of friends she has, it's her own problem. Those are small poor cities, located not even in the European part of Russia.
If any American girl put in her profile that "she searches for love online because everybody around her is a drug addict" what would you think about such girl?! I never saw any normal Russian girl putting something like that in her profile. Most of the scam originates from Mari El (the capital city is Yoshkar Ola, or Yoshka), but they very rarely put in their profiles that they are really from Mari El or Yoshkar Ola. But when you look at all those Russian profiles, it seems like most people in Russia live in Kazan, Kirov or Cheboksary! Another important point I need to make about location.

I suppose the man should be the head of the family.After all, English is not my native language too, and as you see I make mistakes too. Just enter in quotes: "I the sociable girl", or "I the cheerful girl", or "I the nice girl", or any combination of those and here you go. I bet most of it will be either from Kazan, or Cheboksary, or Yoshkar-Ola, or... But sometimes they are not so stupid, and copy the profile descriptions from somebody else's profile, written in a good English.
