She sent me an email to write her after she found my personal ad on Yahoo.com. I thought that it was a scam as I played along. After the third email she told me that she loved me--which I thought was odd--and after about three more emails she told me she could'nt live without me and needed $400 for a visa and medical expenses wired via Western Union to the Far East Bank on Lenina St in Ussuriysk, Russia. The pictures she sent me were not of her but, of an attractive young woman with blonde hair-- any picts showed this woman with a thong on. When I asked about these pictures, she would never tell me anything and just asked about when we would be together. When I made an excuse that I didn't have the money, she tried to lay a guilt trip on me by saying that I do not trust her. Well she is right! I told her that all we have is an electronic connection through the internet and nothing more. I thought that the emails would then stop but, they didn't. She kept up with the same old genre about how she couldn't live without me, etc. She is good and has some great, believable stories ie: Her parents were lost in a fire 6 years back; Her relatives were noblemen in the Russian Monarchy days of the past. etc.
She found me on Yahoo personals and said the same things that she said to the other guy. After 3 or 4 emails, she told me she loved me. She didn't answer my questions. I got suspicious and went on this web site and there she was!
She tried to scam me. Frankli I got her first. I don't mean I scammed her, but after I sent her a hot steamy letter in resonse to hers, I did a little search and found her right at your website. She was using the name Marina Kushakova whic is how I did the search on Google. Anyway I e-mailed her the link with her scam and told her Goodbye.
Basicaly, she is trying to run the same scam on me as she has on the others who have reported her, 3-4 letters and she is in deep love and wants money for a visa.
Veronika found my abandoned Yahoo ad. She sent me standard letters already posted here. I have told her repeatedly that I am not US citizen and that I am not permitted to bring her here as a fiancee. She still writes so I'll have some fun and play along. She will certainly be interested in my unexpected lottery winnings and other new fortunes tbd.

She found me in elitemate.com back in January . She told me her dad was killed in a car accident by a drunk driver and her brother was killed in the Army . She also said she lived with her mom . After about 7 letters , she told me she loved me and wanted to meet in person . She said that she would check on a visa but said she found out the price and would have to work many months to get it . 3 letters later she asked me for the money and I told her no . She never bothered me for the money after that but we still talked until a week ago when I found her under a scam list with the name Elena Kaskova in Astrakhan with the same age as she gave me and the same pictures listed on this site .

The usual deep soulmate kind of love by the third e-mail. Her parents died, it's hard in Russia, he boss is mean, she gets whipped daily, send her money. To not send her money is to not trust her. She will keep writing even after you identify her as a scammer and show her hard proof that you know. She uses the Visa excuse for needing money and claims she needs around the 300 to 600 dollar range. Her pictures are enticing but mingled with what appear to be very legitimate ones taken at legitimate moments. I cannot tell as of yet if the girl sending the emails is the girl in the pictures. She uses the name Elena Shmarova and the location of Astrakahn Russia when giving information as to where to send money via Western Union.

Report N9 (added on April, 14, 2005)
She wrote to me on a site that I had not used for months. After a few letters she was in love with me and wanted to come to America and asked me to pay for the tickets and visa. She never asked for my photo obviously it was a scam.

Wrote to me at Imatchup, I was suspicious from the beginning because it said she lived in the USA. After several letters she declared her love for me. It did not take long for her to ask for $1200 for visa and plane tickets. I offered her a free ticket in First class from my mileage plus account but she declined saying she could get a better deal and did not care if she flew coach....yeah right!!!!
Report N11 (added on May, 7, 2005)
Elena contacted me through luckylovers. For her first four letters she seemed genuine in her quest to find a spouse from the West.
She would answer most of my questions to the extent that I could tell she wasn't using a form letter. However, I suspected she was a scammer starting with her fifth letter. In that letter she mention that she wanted to call me from a trunk station but that it was very expensive so she would have to save up for it. I suspected that she was baiting me to see if I would offer to pay for the calls. Her mention of money got me curious so I checked her all of her email headers. In her second letter she mentioned she was from Astrakhan but all of her email is time-stamped from the Moscow Time Zone which is two-hours behind from where she supposedly is. Her emails starting getting vague starting with the sixth one. She would talk about love, trust, and how her parents & friends think I'm a great guy, but she wouldn't give me her full name or home address, even though I had asked for that information several times. I asked for her home address under the pretense that I wanted to send her something special. In one of my emails to her, I fabricated a story about how I had this dream about her and us being together. Her reply to that letter was that she also had a dream about us. In her eighth email she declared her love for me. In her ninth email she talked about trust and redeclared her love for me. In her eleventh email she asked for visa money so that she could spend either two-months or sixths-months with me. This was dependent on how much money I sent. I wrote her back and asked some very specific questions. I also asked her to take a picture of herself holding up a small sign with my name and city of residence on it. I haven't heard from her since.
Report N12 (added on May, 7, 2005)
This person wrote to me and asked that I write to her. I noticed she was only on "Luckylovers" for 6 days and viewed over 5000 profiles, quite a feat for one person on a dial-up connection! I suspected it might be a scam as I am 55 years old and she 25. I received 7 letters with pictures and by the last one she was in love with me and sent me details for me to send her money for visa/air tickets etc. Needless to say I sent NO money.
