Report N1 (added on April, 30, 2014)
I have received a total of three E-mails from this person and I actually saw three identical E-mails posted here on this site and they were exactly the same, word-for-word.
Her address was exactly the same and employer, family life, previous relationships, etc.
She has sent me a total of 6-images of herself (supposedly) with four of them being taken indoors without any imaging refinement, one is of her lying in bed under the covers, one of her standing while holding a stuffed toy, one of her sitting a chair while barefoot and the other of her standing by a door holding drapes in one hand and there are two of her outdoors: one in the falling snow and one looking at her through a window from the outside with strands of Christmas lights hanging in front of her. I refined them all and she is a very lovely lady with very long red hair, blue and full lips. All pictures were taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II with the indoor pictures taken 1/09/2014 and the outdoor photos taken 12/21/2013.
As of yet, she has not tried to get any money from me.
It's amazing how the Search Engine protect you from hurting yourself on occasion... all I did was post her mailing address and the first result was on this website!

Report N8 (added on January, 9, 2015)
I received a mail saying that she had gotten my name from a dating site. I wrote back and asked her what site (I have never been on one), and she told me that her computer had crashed and that she did not remember what site. She sent a photo so i decided to play along just to see where it would take me. First letter came 09/23/2014 and last came 11/01/2014.She did not answer any direct questions. I told her that I thought that she was mixed up because I am too old for her, but she said that she needed an older man because young men only want to party and all Russian men are drunks who beat their women. She had a high paying job in an auto salon. She soon fell in love with me and was making plans to come to me. She went to Moscow to make arrangements and everything was set, until the day before she was to leave. Then she found out that she had to have a round trip ticket to insure that she would not stay with me. However, she had spent all of her money on her papers and needed $600.00 from me to buy the ticket. I told her that I would pay for her whole ticket and send me her info. She could not do that because she had to buy the ticket through this agency. She never did tell me the name. I did not answer her anymore.

Mari or Mariya as she signed her name originated contact with me after seeing my name on an adult website. I think it was OK Cupid, but I might be wrong.
She sent me letters virtually identical to the ones posted on your website. I had seen similar letters from other Russian scammers in the past so I was pretty sure it was a scam from the start. I immediately told her I was in love with the idea of her being interested in a 68 year old man and that I was rich and famous and would love for her to visit me in Las Vegas as soon as possible. I communicated with her for about a week before I told her that I was an author who writes books about prostitution and scams. I also told her the truth that I spent ten years in prison for securities fraud and was only recently released. I told her I would like to write a novel about her called From eRussia With Love. I actually am an author and have written true story documentaries about prostitution in Las Vegas, Costa Rica and other countries that I have visited. I sent her a copy today of two of my books to see if she would tell me her true story. I am waiting for a reply. Then I looked her up on your website and confirmed she was already in your data base.
She may not respond because I sent her a link to your website and asked her what she had to lose since her scam was already exposed and there are hundreds of other scammers just like her. I asked her if she would rather earn money legitimately by being a co-author of an ebook exposing this type of scam, or continue scamming people and possibly be arrested for fraud.
I have a number of other emails from at least 4 other scammers, but I didn't see their photos on your site and wanted to get a month's free membership so I could search their names and other info. The first one corresponded with me for weeks and then asked for Western Union for round trip ticket after she claimed she had started her trip to Las Vegas and was stranded in Moscow. Lots of details and documents and photos.
