What if we cannot come to an agreement with a client? Will it be considered as violation of the rules?

We look at each case personally, and listen to both parties. We will try to help you to reach an agreement, but if we think the client is unreasonable, it will not be considered as violation. For example, a client may request to refund him for the purchasing of address of the scammer, but he cannot request you to cover his losses that were caused by the fraud (as long as you display the warning against the sending of money prominently on your website, or on one of the main pages accessible from the HOME PAGE).

Not every woman who requests financial help is a scammer. Why it is necessary to remove her data from the databases and inform you about it?

Of course not every woman who asks for financial help is a scammer. But the ground base for scams is men who send money to women. If they did not send money, there would not be any scams. 

We truly believe that if an honest woman asks for financial help from a man, she considers him special and has established special relationship with him. So removal of her data from your database is only natural. It is up to you as an agency to decide if her request was reasonable, and inform us with corresponding information. We will be able to accumulate this information, and will never blacklist any woman who was not reported as an obvious scammer.

The idea of Russian - Scam. org is to have a place for exchanging such information. If a woman was reported as requesting money from men by a few agencies, the conclusion is obvious. In the same time she may still be looking for a husband abroad, but using her other admires that she does not find good enough as a source of good living. This is unacceptable.

A man may take a decision to support his friend financially, and it's his right. If he was the first one to offer financial help, his intentions are honorable; though an honest woman will usually hesitate to accept such an offer. 

Our rules are made in regard to women who start the money talk themselves. Your obligation as an agency is to inform men that a money request from a woman is a bad sign, and recommend them not to send money. If they decide to go ahead, the consequences are not your responsibility.
