While scamming is illegal and Russian scammers regularly get in jail, yet we believe that the police alone will not be able to put an end to it. The information, education, and sheer economics will.
You see, scammers operate on economies of scale. They know for example that on average, out of 1000 guys contacted, 5 will eventually fall for it and send say, $5000 combined. Of course there is a cost involved in contacting and corresponding with these 1000 guys, that's their bottom line. And the "yield" is falling rapidly, since guys looking for Russian bride become more and more informed. The more educated and informed you are about Russian scammers, the less profits they get, and as soon as their "yield" falls below their bottom line, scamming will become simply economically not viable, and will stop by itself.
