Report N1

This young lady expressed interest in me from the afore mentioned web site. We conversed several letters and many photos were sent. then she started asking for money for travel. only 350usd cause her father was going to give the rest. Thenshe went to get visa and said that she needed 100usd for every day she would be staying in the USA. I got on the US Embasst web site and got all the paper work and sent it to her and explained it only cost 185usd for visa app.and finger prints and have not heard from her since. She did say her web site was down and wrote me at an alt. website which now is an invalid e-mail address lena_and_mike@mail.ru
I have talked to the fraud dept at my bank and they are going to try to recover the 350 I sent as a wire thru jp morgan chase that went onto alfa-bank moscow

Report N2

Asked for money for Visa, Passport, Travelling Expenses.
After the request for money was turned down, I told her that it would not work to try to get her to come here, I got a short message from her cousin Marina saying that Svetlana was ill and in the hospital for a week. After three weeks of writing e-mails I let her know that I was not going to try anymore and that I believed that this was just a scam to get money. A week later I saw her ad on SingleMe.com where she stated that she was two inches taller and living in Scranton, Russia. I contacted SingleMe and they removed her ad.

Report N4 (added on October, 12, 2005)

The ususal. Response to my profile, nice letters, sent some pictures, never answered my questions, fell in love in 4 weeks and needed money for travel to meet me - she asked for $650. I refused to send cash and, heartbroken, she broke it off abruptly and said farewell. I say, "Good riddance."
