Report N1 (added on June, 8, 2005)
Hi my name is Brad and I was almost a victim of a Visa Scam for $480 U.S. I was contacted by this person in early March, 2005. I received a total of 11 letters and 8 photographs. The letters were quite compelling and seemed very genuine and personal in nature. They not only talked about her life but of things she did, listened to and her views on world events. They always included my name, several times and even answered several questions I was asking along the way. They bore no pattern, seemed freshly written, and were not like a "form" letter that many men receive from scammers. The turning point started when there was a mention of her best friend just moving to Munich Germany to marry her email boyfriend. The letters from that point expressed her Deep Love for me and her desire to visit me and my family in the U.S. It turns out that her friend's Aunt had made all the travel arrangements for her best friend to go to Germany and that she was willing to do the same for Nadezhda. She felt for sure that her applying, and then actually qualifying for a Visa for the U.S. was all but assured. By the 10th letter she finally asked for my help with a shortfall she and her parents were going to have to cover all the related costs for the Visa application. The $480 she asked for didn't even include the needed airfare I would have been expected to pony up for next. The only thing I can say is, BEWARE!! This person is Good at this. Her pretty pictures and warm, almost childlike innocense in the letters is very compelling. If it wasn'y for my own nagging suspicions that drove me to research this and ultimately finding of her pictures in another Russian Bride Scam site, I could have fallen for this BIG TIME. Don't be fooled by this one.

"Olga" contacted me on Yahoo personals. I was standoffish at first, but she came across as being very sincere. We corresponded over the course two months, from beginning to end.
In retrospect, it seems laughable, but at the time I wanted to believe in her inherent goodness and she was forthright about asking for the truth from me always, preferring, as she said "bitter truth to a sweet lie". As it happened, she dealt wholesale in sweet lies.
She said she was a teacher, an orphan, that she had one elder woman who was her role model and mentor. She said that she volunteered her free time at the orphanage where she had lived as a child. She told me many stories,
wanted to know all about me, she wrote back and forth, replying to my questions and comments. For all intents and purposes, this seemed like a bona fide pen pal relationship.
At some point, affection seeped in and once the "L" word was uttered once, that was it, I heard it over and over from her.
One day, she informed me that her vacation was starting soon and she wanted to make plans to come see me. She claimed to have saved some money and that her coming here was her gift to me. So, she started the visa process, claimed she was going through an agency of some sort to get a visa, and then all of the sudden, her best friend's grandmother needed an operation and Olga gave her money to pay for a kidney transplant (of all things! I should have run at this point). She wanted me to give her half of what it was costing her to get here to see me - 350 USD. And there was urgency to do it right away. I sent her the money, via Western Union.
She was very happy to receive it and proceeded with her plans. She made ready to take the train from the Volgograd up to Moscow, where she would catch a flight to see me in the USA. I get an email from her, that she was refused entry onto the plane because she needed 800 USD so that she wouldn't look like a vagrant. I feared the worst but sent the money. That was all I heard from her for a week or so. She did not arrive to see me.
After around a week, I received an email from her that she'd been in the hospital, that she'd been robbed of the money and could I send her 150 USD so that she could get back to Dubokov (where she claimed she lived, near
Volgograd). I didn't bother to answer that email.
Then a week after that, she sent me an email saying that she'd raised the money and that she'd go back home, sell her apartment and pay me back.
That was the last I heard from her.
She was not like some of the more so-obvious-they're-funny Russian girls on the scam, this one was very sincere and very smooth. Even after I later saw her picture on other Russian chick scam websites, I still couldn't believe it.
If she contacts you, play her along, see what you can get out of her, but remember that this one is a master of the long con!

I did see this girl on some scam sites. Her picture was unbelievably gorgeous, and she launched in to "I love you" within three emails. I was inexperienced at this and fell for it. She talked all about coming to see me. Then she said that the expenses were exorbitant at the last minute. She said that she had already spent money and couldn't aford to lose it, and that I needed to send her money immediately. When I put her email address in Google, I found the exact letters had been sent to other guys. I was saved at the last minute, but it was heartbreaking.
