Report: I first winked at her on website, she responded with email address. First request for $$ came about one month later for 'sewing machine' for her birthday. We 'planned' a vacation in July and she bought reservations with $$ I sent via Western Union. Also asked for $$ to pay for University fees in Russia to complete seamstress education. Finally received letter from translator who was hired to write the letters, translator explained what had happened and didn't want me to be looking for a non-existant woman at Donetsk airport for vacation. Total correspondence time was approximately 3 months. $$ was received by Tamara Zhiganova. Requested $760 for sewing machine and was sent. Sent $3K for 'reservations'. Also sent $3.6K for University fees. Total pictures received was about 30. Translator was very good at her job, nothing 'fishy' was noted.

She was stopped at the airport enroute to NZ and her stones were kept by Manila airport untill she had paid taxes and insurance on these stones which cost 40,000 usd
She paid for half of the amount and he girlfriend paid 5000usd and she had no money left and she was stuck there.I said i couldn't help her but then timejust stood still and one thing lead to another and so i borrowed 15000usd to bring her home.

On web sites: yes - dating sites
Report: corresponded daily for two months using email, after meeting on a dating site. She requested money twice to pay for plane ticket/travel agency expenses etc to fly to me. The first time she requested I use western union to send the money, fortunately I realised her true motives before sending any money to her. After writing to her that I could not send money the second time (two months after initial contact) she never emailed me again (not surprisingly).
side note: I would really like to hear from anyone else who has corresponded with this 'individual' (especially the person who posted the scam report already on this site) to compare photos etc.
Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org - thank you.

She responed to that new email address at the same times she responed
to the old address. And that happend the day after our last correspondence.
Her new email tells a differnt storry about her life. I have that saved I you

decided meet you I cannot to find rest and I constantly think of you
and about our meeting with you. I do not understand, that with me

to a magnet. You a magnet for my heart and I cannot make anything with
myself. John please forgive me, that I to name you a magnet. I know,
that it is an inanimate object, but I now cannot simply find a word
better to describe to you that I feel in myself. I miss on you every
day, I think of you every second and I cannot be adjusted now at all
for my work. I pretended, that I work, though my thoughts were about
you and I simply flied in dreams of you and about ours to a meeting. I
never before did not wish to meet someone so strongly and only I now
dream to meet you. I think, that I already am completely enamoured in
you and is ready to give you the heart. You accept my heart? I ask you
only do not break it because it is full of love to you and very
vulnerable. John I now to write to you about the feelings with such
romantic words, whether that I do not know you will understand that I
wish to tell to you. Therefore I probably to write to you is direct -
I LOVE YOU my SWEET!!!!!! John know, I very much worried today about
your answer. I very much was afraid of that you will leave me now that
I to ask about the help in money from you. I to hate myself now for
this request, but I really did not know to whom else to address for
the help. Therefore I have decided to risk and have written you
yesterday the letter with the request for the help in money. Today
since the morning I all in excitements, but now when I have read your
letter my heart has calmed down. I am very glad that you to understand
my situation and wish the help me. I have concluded the contract with
travel agency and they should book to my the ticket. John now a
problem not in the ticket. Now the main thing to pay to travel agency
for documents and as for their services 348 euro, I specially learnt
how many it will be in the American dollars, it will make 505$. If
during necessary time I not to pay, they will stop registration of my
documents and I so I should pay it the penalty according to the
contract which I have signed. So I ask you now the help to me only
with money. John I understand, that you now do not have trust to me as
we did not see you never. But nevertheless I ask you to believe in me.
I promise to you, that I to return you all money from my wages. So I
ask you to trust in me and the help with money for payment of
documents for the visa, ok. My sweet John, you to ask me about our
future. I understand what to fall in love through the Internet not
easily, but I have fallen in love with you, and believe to me, I will
be with you always. You are necessary, after all I have fallen in love
with your private world, I have fallen in love with your photos, let
even in live you will look on another, but I all the same very
strongly to love you. And if all goes well and if you want that I I
can move to you, and marry you, or it is possible to move to me to
Russia, but at us in Russia it is very heavy to foreigners, therefore
I think that on this variant does not approach. My dear, I will learn
how you can communicate with it from travel agency. But now for me the
main thing as soon as possible to pay for my visa and my documents.
After all the earlier I to pay, the earlier I can be near to you.
John, I am sorry for that that I have made this step, and did not
discuss it with you, I have hurried, but the matter is that I very
strongly want to you, I wish to embrace strong you and to kiss. I to
love you all heart. My darling, concerning transfer to me of money. If
fairly to admit, I do not know, how it would be better to translate
your money to me for such short term. But my colleague now sits near
to me and she says to me, that the best variant to translate your
money to me it through system of immediate translations. She says,
that it will occupy not a lot of time and the more so it simply and
you will require only my name and the address to translate your money.
I will give now my information and you can send me your money through
the Western Union.
My full name: Anna Sidorova

John unfortunately through system of immediate translations, it is
unique variant to receive your money because I have no bank account.
At us in Russia not all people have bank accounts and only the rich
presume to themselves it. I not the rich woman and I have no it. So to
try to send your money through these systems, well. I hope it not
difficultly for you and you can send me your help tomorrow and as do
not forget to write me your full information of your transfer. Well, I
to finish on it and I need to look forward to hearing only from you. I
very much ask you to write to me soon. I miss on you and I love you
very much. Sincerely yours Anna.
Anna, Not just 5 kilometers from my job there is a Russian Delights
Russian owned store. I stopped there after work and asked the owner
for his help. He was hesitent. He told me to seach google for scams about
sending pretty girls money so they can get visa to visit you. He told me not
to send money to a person directly. He said marriage and dating
services do backround checks and If I want to find someone to meet
from Russia to do that. He gave me information on some.
The owner could see I was very upset about learing this. And said
do not send any money without proper references. That your
travel agency can help you with this. Or you can join a dating,
or russian mail order bride agency to help us bring you to the
United States to meet with me.
Anna, my heart is so sad to write you this letter.
I have found reports of many scams of marriage about
the name you have given me on Google. 100's of them.
I have found scams documententing the address you
gave me in your last letter.
I can not send you money at this time. I will not
waist your time anymore with a long letter to you.
If you are indeed real. And do want to have a relationship
with me you will forgive me. If you are real you can make the
time to read my last letters I wrote you and fufill my requests.
Anna you told me you have until July 10th to pay your
travel agent without penalty. That is enough time
for you to send me the 2 pictures I asked of you. And that
Gives me enough time send your travel agent a wire
transfer. Anna, If you are real but need help for me
to send you money for fees, your travel agent does
just that. Your agent gets paid to help you. Your
travel agent is experienced in this matter and will have
no problems contacting me at my place of employment
Tomorrow. If your agent wants to make commission she will
not hesitate to do this as it is her job.
If your registration expires before your travel agent can help
us. Inform your travel agent I will pay for all penalties, and
pay for future registration fees. I will open a savings account
for you in your name as well as my name at:
Eaeeieia oe. 28, a. Oaaa?iane, Oaaa?ianeee e?ae - 8 (421) 279-40-39
This bank is near you.
Anna if you are REAL, it is now up to you yourself
to choose what happens next. Anna, If I cannot send
the money in time to your travel agent directly, have her
draw me papers and send me the bill for the penalty.
I will pay the penalty and restart your registration all
over and do it legally. We will open a savings account
near your Appartment if you are real and Really live
at Habarovsk Street Lenin House .
Anna it confuses me why you send me a sexual
picture with your last letter and not the pictures
I asked you for? My relationship with you has not
been to have sex with you! Send me the 2 pictures
I asked you for in my last letter and one more new
picture of you doing something silly so I know it was taken
just for me. Take a 3rd. picture of yourself with on old
bra and panties worn over the top of the clothes you
are currently wearing.
If you are REAL,
You have time to do the things in this letter.
Have your travel agent call me directly tomorrow
at my moble first. If that does not work have your agent
call me at my job. She has to call me during
Wisconsin, Usa Central Mountain time. During
one of my breaks at work. Your agent can try
reaching me at these 3 times, my time.
9:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., or 3:00 pm. Your travel agent will
have options for me to pay your fees with you permission.
If she does not do this have her sign a letter of refusal
to accept payment. Then she can not serve you penalty
as you made adequate attemp to pay.
ask to have John Crooks paged.
Your agent will know how to dial USA dialing code.
Although my heart is filled with such sorry
It still aches to be with you,
With all my love,
