Report N1 (added on March, 23, 2007)

I started corresponding with this woman. She was very charming and was very specific in all of her letters to me. I sent her money on four occasions amounting to several thousand dollars, including enough money to be interviewed at her Embassy in order to be approved to come over to America. I also, sent her money to make travel arrangements to come to my country. She was suppose to arrive, but she never showed up at the airport. I telephoned her regularly. She changed her phone number, but gave me the new number. After she did not arrive, I sent her one more email to bait her. I asked her if she was in trouble and needed more money. She wrote me back and said that she was at her mother's house and did not know what to do. I have not heard from her since. I was totally fooled.

$200 Requested help because she was sick
$1,750 Money to arrange travel to America
$300 Money because she needed more help
$650 Additional money for travel to America because of price increase

Report N2 (added on April, 26, 2008)

I smelt a scam from the start so I use a translation program to write my mail in Russian with English as well to help them with their English.

tried to dump this one but they persist now they think they have me convinced they are in St Petersburg Russia but I have set a task in my last email to have photos taken at a known landmark and to send it to me.
