Had me going but I viewed this site & caught on to her act. It is a shame , I feel like she raped my inner feelings as I felt she was sincere. Guess what , now I will take my time & find me a Russian woman that will blow her away in all ways.. As they say..what comes around,, goes around, I hope someone rapes her feelings some day as she did mine... SHAMEFUL !!!!

Report N4 (added on September, 14, 2007)

I dont believe this. This is my third Internet scam reported...

I thought I had the experience to spot the scam, but this one was clever. I was the one to contact her on a Swedish dating site (motesplatsen). And things like this rarely happen there.

I checked the Internet headers in her email, nothing suspicious.
She uses GMail where the origin of email is hard to spot. Then she actually puts effort in answering all my questions. See my correspondence.

Luckily, I found here on this site, under the same name: Tatyana.
I want to give you a great thank you, to you people who run this site!

She contacted me with new name.

Report N7 (added on October, 29, 2008)

This lady suddenly contacted me. With in the first few letters I thought some thing was wrong but tried to believe her and went along. Them I came on this site and found one of her pictures while still talking to her. I decided to play the game with her ( or who ever was typing) and see where it would take me! these are her emails and IM''s. After the 2nd letter I knew who she was. Let the games Begin!

Report N8 (added on January, 12, 2010)

Here she is again! Appears convincing and slow build up. My natural cynicism was starting to crack.

Report N9 (added on June, 22, 2012)

Met on Match, She winked at me. Started out in Butte MT, then Highland Park IL, then Velsk Russia. Many many emails, over a three month period, wants to come to US to marry me , even though I am much older, 57. Needs of course money for airline ticket and of course for Visa and passport and other expenses. Sent me lots of pictures of course which I found to be listed on Facebook as Ekaterina Velsk. Of course the scammer denies having a Facebook site. I did send 50.00 as a test which Western Union reports was picked up in Yoshkar Ola. After I sent this info back to Ekaterina and asked where Yoshkar Ola is in relation to Velsk , no further contact.

Report N10 (added on August, 29, 2012)

She was on Match claiming to be living in Berea, KY at first when she contacted me. Soon switch to personal email and soon claimed love. Then needing $710.00 for Visa. Wouldn't give bank information, claiming they can't take foreign money and it needed to be send Western Union.
