Report N2 (added on January, 13, 2006)

Contacted me on Yahoo. Went to reply and noticed profile was deleted. Sent e-mail anyway. Got responce back from new profile, same person. Swear name was Elena on first, now Maria.

I was skeptical naturally, so did a search on scams and found site where I found out about common russian girls scamming.

Kept responding to see what happened. Sure enough e-mails were pretty generic, not really answering questions sent in replies.

With the 13th responce came the "dilema". Her visa was ready to go to come back to the US, but her family came into financial trouble so she needed to use the money she had for it to help parents and asked me to send $300-400 via Western Union to help.

Not very good at this as the pictures are pretty much stock photo's. Doubt it's really her in them, looks like they were taken at some photo shoot.

I got e-mails saved if needed.

Report N3 (added on February, 13, 2006)

As with another letter I read on this site, Alina contacted me through my Yahoo personals website & we corresponded for a few weeks before she dropped the whammy on me asking for money. I told her 'no way' & our chatter quieted down for a couple of weeks until she resumed correspondence. After a few more letters, she asked if I could cash a check from her former place of employment. I said 'sure' knowing not a dime would be sent until the check cleared & once it didn't & I let her know, the letters stopped. One would hope she's on the run but hopefully the authorities will get her.
