    Hi Sirena,

    I know it's hard. I was a wreck myself three months after MY misadventure in Ukraine some years ago. Not only the money, but also the feeling of being trampled emotionally. But you know (even if it doesn't help you just now), that time heals all wounds. And you'll be that much wiser next time. Hopefully without stopping believing in love and decency.

    I ofcourse don't know your financial background, but be happy, that you ONLY lost a couple of thousand. Some have lost 5-10 times that.

    I am almost an imbecile concerning internet, so my advices are not very deep. But it is my impression, that every email has an identification-number, by which it can be tracked. So should also be the case with the yahoo mails, you have recieved. If none of our resident computer-geniuses turn up here, try to get some local expert to help you. I'm told it's a fairly easy process. If f.ex. your "friend's" email adress turns out to be some internet-cafe, and not the company he pretended to work for, he's probably a local nigerian, who's done some identity theft.

    Don't worry about the consulate. It can take some time for them to answer; and it's my personal experience, that american authorities are
    more helpful than many other western officials.

    thanks swede and tone: i guess i will do some of that, incredibly let me tell you that my economic situation is not good and I took a cash advance from my credit card...I know...I was holding to my dream of the very good man I have just found in my life...so, now...as soon as I get back home, i will gather all the information and ocntact the Interpol and Secret Service, as you said, at least someone might benefit from my experience. I was wondering since he is still writing and asking for money, if there is a way of going undercover so one of this agencies can catch the scammer. I dont know...the pain is slowly going away...still have not brake the news to my family...who--by the way---where very happy that I found a good man. I also told a very good ffriend of mine and cried quite a bit---because as you say--is not only the money---is the emotional part that hurts the most----I think as I let it out and understand where my responsability is---I can learn and move on...Guys, I could only imagine your pain---as I feel mine. thanks a lot for the support and the kind words...

    Sirena,

    as we are all anonymous here, I feel that you can unload as much as you want. After my own experience, where I, naive as you, had been taken to the cleaners emotionally and economically (and lost about the same as you), it was a great help to get contact with people in the same situation.

    But mind you, I also got some rude answers here some years ago (as I DID meet the woman at a personal level): "You got laid, so stop whining".

    That was, and never will be, my only reason for contacting someone on cyberdating.

    But I believe, that this site now is more peopled by "gentlemen", and though I personally can't give you much technical assistance, I can at least give you some sympathy. So don't feel shy about joining at a personal or general level.

    Hope you have a good supportive family or friendgroup.

    PS I suggest you read some of the topics here on this site. Your suggestion of going "undercover" has been presented in various forms. From the humouristic to the very technical. Maybe you'll not get your money back, but (sad to say, I'm for retaliation) you can create problems for this guy. Read and learn.

    Best wishes

    Swede

    Hello Sirena and Swede!

    Sirena, Swede is correct and Yes You can vent here if you Wish-No Enemies here! Swede has done a good thing here regarding this site, Truely!! Well, I tend to sometimes be alittle head strong-Humm, my small quirk I guess but I try to keep my mind open and my opinion's and thought's rashional! Sirena, Swede is correct about there are a few articles in various forum's here which may be Helpful to you, I think it will come down to how badly do you Wish this Scammer to feel pain and pay for his Cold Heartedness? Myself I say-FRY HIM!! I Hope my meaning and attitude toward's Scammer's does not seem too Harsh because I see the World this way, Scammer's have very little to No Heart when they are Scamming someone and I also feel they Enjoy the Hunt, maybe they think we are the prey and they are the Lion's? I say let's all when Possible Pull alot of Fang's and without Pain Killer's too!!
    Well I have been thru the Meat Grinder more than once and I Know without any doubt's it Hurt's alot and the True Suffering can be Very Painful!!![V]
    Hey, maybe try alittle reverse war fare, alittle back at them so to speak? Well in closeing, there is support and empathy here, I think Sympathy too!!

    Sincerely,

    Tone
