Report N1

This scammer first contacted me on October 24, 2004 through the site. There has been a flood of scammers using that site and I have had many contacts through it. There are no warnings posted anywhere on that site about scams. The same pictures of this woman was used were used in another scam using the name Alexandra Kutina form Samara, Russia.
This one is quite well done and very deceptive. When I was asked for money for the visa and airfare ($800 after the portion that she would put in) I pointed out that it would be impossible for her to get a visa to the US.
They didn't miss a beat and came up with an elaborate and plausible sounding story to get around that. This one is also fairly responsive to questions and the problems posed. Enclosed are all the letters.
