Report: This is a professional Russian scammer!
I met her on a datingside. In the first letter she used a interpreter to write me in Dutch.
I asked her if she can write me in English.
After a dozen letters she did fall in love with me. She wanted to meet me. But for meeting me in the Netherlands she needed money for translation my letters and travel documents. When i told her that i don't want to give her the money (500 Euro!), she was dissapeared and didn't write me anymore.

Report: Hello, Mark. I am sorry for delay. It seems I am having problems now
with my trip ( I told you before grandad's friends were helping me
financially so I could start my trip without pressure on my pocket.
Yesterday they were going to send the funds but could not do it. They
do their archaeological work somewhere too far from Western Union
I was going to book tickets already ( They also tried to send the
funds to Warsaw using internet but their bank refused to do an
international transfer telling they need to do it personally in a
branch as they do it for the first time to Poland. The worst part is
that they are going back only after several months and I can't wait.
They told me they can send the funds without any delays using a domestic
transfer within USA but I do not have a bank account yet.
I told them about you and they ask if they can send the funds to you.
I feel myself embarassed to ask you about it but at least I trust you
and I am sure you will not take the funds ) Let me know please if it
is possible. I understand it may seem impudent from my side but I
don't know what to do ( I was told it is the fastest way for them at
this moment. After you receive the funds you can send them to Warsaw
using Western Union or Money Gram system. Waiting for your reply.
It's me, Mark! ) How is your day today? Mine is good! )
My head is full of thoughts about going to US.
I am going to US!!! ) Yes yesterday was tough day.
Well, now I only wait for my grandfather's friend to transfer
necessary funds for me. They should be sent tomorrow. So probably in 2
days I am booking a ticket already. They informed us that they would
email us when they sent the funds. They have a satellite to be
connected with world. For communication they use some equipment. As I
told you before they are archeologists. I don't know if I would be so
brave to be in jungles with dangerous creatures and animals. Would you
ever travel to such place? Wild jungle... like a scary movie )
Will wait for your email.
Hello, Mark. Of course I will get a number when I arrive. Today I had
a busy day with work and feel myself so tired ( I had 8 yogi classes.
I decided not to go to a gym today. It would be tough for a girl like
me ) I am going to make a light salad and then I will go to sleep.
Sorry for my short email. How have you been?
Halo, Mark! Sooo hard day for me today with all this paperwork but
I am glad in the end ) I feel myself tired, like a squezeed lemon ))
Thank you for telling me about your relatives.
Tomorrow I need to begin pack my luggage. Because I know it will take
a long time for me to think what to take )) I have a lot of different
thigs and knickknack ) For example I sleep always with my lion )) You
could see him on the picture. He is my best friend now and his name is
Leo ))) he is my mascot also which brings only luck! Do you have a
mascot, Mark? I have also lots of clothes and underwear. I like to go
shopping and I can find even not expensive clothes which fits me and I
look wonderful. What type of clothes do you prefer to wear?
I think if we meet each other in person we will know each other better, do you
agree with me? Do you have a phone number I can reach you with when I arrive?
Well, I will inform my grandfather's friend about my
readiness. I want a shower right now so much!!! I will write you
tomorrow my plans. But I want to see also your reply ;-)
I see your email ) Thank you, Mark. I was out of town with friends on
the weekend )
Can you tell me about your family? I would like to know ) How
many relatives do you have? Do you gather together often, do you
celebrate together important events? I love my mom and dad very much.
I don't know whom I love more, dad or mom ) These people I think gave
me good upbringing and taught me a lot of things which are important in
life. My daddy is rigorous, but fair-minded man. He is 46 old. He
lives separate from my mom but we see each other often, he works in a
company in an industrial field. Well, my mom is the best mom ) She is
44. She is an ex teacher but now she does not work. But I live on my own and
I like it )
Tomorrow I will be busy with arrangements for travel and maybe will go
outside Warsaw for some time to prepare some documents required for
all this paperwork. Ok, I will wait for your email, Mark!

Report: I was beginning to believe her profile and photo`s were too good to be true but unfortunately had sent 200 USD for translation costs for one month and 100 USD for english language school as I was planning to over to see her in September.
By chance I saw your Web Site and saw the exact wording in your disclosure as she sent me.
That occured this afternoon as I am just getting over the shock hence my writing to you now.
She sent an erotic photo posure of herself plus another cleverly constructed e mail.
She is a very attractive women and wonder if these 10 or so photos she sent sometimes intially 3 in one go have been stolen.
I was captivated by another girl last year on Cupid International - her name being Christine from Cotonou in Benin but stopped writing but never knew whether she was really scam as I could not find out at the time. Would you check her out for me please?
