Report N1 (added on September, 18, 2006)
This woman (if she is using her real identity) started by exchanging lots of love letters with me and then slowly fall in love with me after one month. Then suddenly she wanted to be with me and asked me to send her cash to get a Russian international passport which was supposed to cosy $309, a UK Visa and an Aeroflot air ticket - total cost $1529. When I requested to visit her first, she said it was not a good idea. Then I told her I could not send money but pay for these things directly where the money was required using my bank card. She again rejected this idea and when I refused to send cash directly to her I suggested she pays for these things and then I would repay upon her arrival in UK. She then told me she had borrowed the full amount from her bank and had got the passport and visa (then sent me a scanned photos)but I was suspicious when I noticed that the passport had been issued way back in February 2006. I however decided to overlook that if she was coming over anyway. But oops, she came back to me with a new development. The Russian authorities had told her she could not leave the country untill she has repid her debt to the bank, and as she had already booked a flight to UK on Areoflot on a special fare, she needed the money repaid by 18th September 2006. Her mother had managed to raise $600 and I only needed to give her $920 plus some more cash to replace the money she had spent in Moscow attenting to these things while staying in a cheap hotel.
I declined to send any money and insisted that she gets the balance from friends and family on the promise that I would send the money to them as soon as she showed up in UK.
It was then that she became a bit confused as she had been so close to nailing me! She mistakenly send me an email which had been meant for another man called 'Stefano' who she was also trying to trick. The email showed that Stefano had stopped writing to her and she was desperately in love with him, etc. etc.
I just replied her; "By the way I am not Stefano, but good luck with him anyway!" and that was the last communication beween us - just yesterday.
I have several photos of her as well as scanned pictures of her Passport and VISA and will attach some here if there is enough space.
I hope this helps many men out there who are falling victims to these scammers.
My advice to all is: Don't send money! That's the golden rule.
I have about 5 other sscammers that I can report on, but will do so after registering FREE on your site.
