Report N1 (added on January, 2, 2015)

This person has been pursuing me for 15 months telling me that she loves me, that she wants to be with me, etc. She wrote to me on LavaPlace where I am a member. She initiated the contact, not me.
She sent me countless emails (350 emails or more) asking for money to send her in order for her to buy the ticket or travel package (like she calls it) to come to visit me.
For 15 months I was extremely wary of her and her insistence to want to come visit me while she never met me. Finally after I gathered all the information about her like her phone number, her passport copy, he address and where she works I nevertheless sent her CHF 400.
The money was sent in her mother's name Valentina Koftun.
As soon as she received the money she started to hesitate about coming. Then when I asked her to return the money to me or come, she didn't respond to neither requests.

Report N2 (added on January, 9, 2015)

I corresponded with "Olesya" from 17th December, 2014 until the beginning of January 2015. She sent me many photos which look identical to the person listed as Olesya Kovtun (or Koftun) on your site. Also, the style of writing is very similar. The only difference is that my Olesya claims to live in St. Petersburg while your listed version from "Phil of Switzerland" is in Ekaterinburg. All aspects of her "life story" are similar to that detailed in the letters received by Phil - for example, that she has a rich father who owns a civil engineering company and that she works as an accountant for such firms.

Report N3 (added on June, 30, 2016)

She has been writing to me for two years and a half, I have sent her $3000 for a tickets, but she never came. She claimed that she has lost the money through the Agency and that she wants more. I told her that I would send her an electronic ticket and she refused, she only wants cash. I haven`t sent her any money for the past year and a half because I felt that she just stealing from me. She has sent me more than a thousand love mail and very beautiful photos (all photos have the same person and that deceived me). She even held a not with my name and date along with her facial photo to prove that she was the one!. She even sent me an agreement signed by her and her both parents. She used to call me for one minute only many times, but she never answered when I called her. When I asked her to talk through SKYPE she got mad. I am glad I found her at the scammer page even though Its kind of too little too late, but I hope I can help the other before its too late!
