On web sites: Jana marriage agency
Report: If you look on the dictionary for the definition of greed you'll find a photo of this person. If you use your agency there will be several alarms ringing. For instance once you get to Vinnitsa none of the most attractive girls from the website will be available even if you were writting letters to them. You will be suggested to contact a few girls, which of course they don't speak any english (or they are adviced to pretend they dont) so for each meeting you'll need to pay for the meeting, translator and food for 3! at least a $100. By the end of the meeting you'll think everything is ok because you can get the girl's contact, but you don't. Girls are adviced not to give you any information. So for the next meeting is back to square one. Beware! don't say later you were not warned.

Report: Previously I submitted a report to you but then withdrew it like a fool! I arranged her flight and insurance with a travel company at cost of 700 Euro. I then sent 2500 Euro for her to set up a bank account to permit her to come to me in the UK. On May 28 she requested and I sent $423.72 via western union to her friend. All was arranged for her to come to me June 1st.I then looked again at your website and found Ian's report and her letters to him. The style and content of her letters to Ian is identical to her letters to me. For example:
Name: Tracey Cox
Aka: Linda Coz Williams
Location: First USA later Nigeria
On web sites: match.com
Report: Below is the proof from a recent chat, that i was fooled by a dating scammer:
I was this stupid to pay her a ticket, after two years (!) of having chatted, she would come visit me. At first she told me she was in the USA, but later she had gone to Nigeria, where she stayed a while with a girlfriend. To make herself seem trustworthy, she had scanned her passport, but it must have been a fake one...
This scammer is called Tracey Cox, but she called herself Linda, because her late father always called her Tracey, that was too painful for her...
This was her first mail from the mail-address: firstname.lastname@example.org, she later used email@example.com:
my name is coz linda williams my father is from uk amd my mum is from holland .
but my father has dead am presently in usa now .
i was born in 1982 my mum is in australia,i am a party photographer before and i was trained in new youk city as a food protector for a year which i have certificate for it and am willing to relocate with a lucky man who can take care of me and show me love again that will never deceive me because i have been deceive before by a guy that lead me to usa .
read from you soon linda
NOW TELL ME ABOUT YOU
OK, I told her about previous experiences with internet dating and that there were dating scammers on line and i did not want to talk about money: this is what she replied:
thank you for the message you sent to me let me tell you i dont need your money all i need is true love and trust that is all
After a lot of chatting, after two years of chatting, I thought i had no reason to distrust her. I bought her a ticket for the airline to visit me, and on purpose did not give her the money to buy the ticket herself. Strange, she did not seem very grateful for this! But after I done that, she said she had no money for the taxi to the airport. She asked for money at least 150 dollars for the taxi and for some food. So i send her some 200 dollars for the taxi and for some other stuff. She also spoke about a Basic Travel Allowance (BTA). When I googled this, I found out that this BTA did not exist. But she had me convinced she had wrongly got this info from others... I have checked her e-mail address on dating scam sites, but i never found anything about her on the internet. That made me wrongly trust her.
A few weeks later, the day after i send the money, I had a call from an unknown man, who claimed to be a doctor at the hospital, telling me that Tracey was sick and was taken into hospital. He asked if I was her fiancee because she had said this so the the doctor. I denied this and said it was only a girlfriend with whom i had chatted. The guy had my phone-number and also my email-address, he supposedly got it from the scammer-girl. I then realized, I was scammed and stolen of my hard earned holiday pay! I then knew that i was deceived by a dating scammer organisation. But it was too late, my money was gone and the plane ticket (550 euro's!) was not refundable... The first thing I did after this strange call was changing my cell phone number and deleted her messenger profile...
Below is a quote of the chat about the BTA and her asking me for taxi money:
me: hi dear
Tracey Cox: hello hun
Tracey Cox: how are you doing tonight hun
me: i am ok, wachted some intersting youtube docs
Tracey Cox: ok
Tracey Cox: thats nice
Tracey Cox: i just have 30min to talk to u hun
me: ok do you have some more news on the BTA?
Tracey Cox: according to what i heard they said anybody that is travelling to any country that he must have bta
Tracey Cox: that no one is collecting the money from the person
Tracey Cox: but he must have it hun
Tracey Cox: they said they always make sure that all the passenger on board have the bta so that they wont be Liabilities for the goverment of the country he or she is going
Tracey Cox: you too go and asked from anybody to explain the meaning of bta for you
Tracey Cox: okay
me: so how do you get the bta?
Tracey Cox: what kind of qestion is that
Tracey Cox: am i working here hun
Tracey Cox: when you know i dont have anymoney
Tracey Cox: hun we are not paying bta to anybody they just want all the persenger onboard have it
Tracey Cox: like when me and my late friend is coming here they said me and her must have 2500usd as bta
Tracey Cox: so ask from anybody hun
Tracey Cox: ok
Tracey Cox: because i dont want that date to come and something else would not let me travelled it would pain me a lot
me: the first link i find on the net about bta is this: viewtopic.php?t=7231
Tracey Cox: what is that hun?
me: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS BASIC TRAVEL ALLOWANCE!!
Please remember: there is NO such thing. There is NO such requirement, in any country of the world. This is an invention of the scammers.
me: Same in Africa. Those times are gone, and this term doesn't exist anymore.
Tracey Cox: hun that is what i heard
Tracey Cox: they just told me anybody that is travelling they would ask him or her bta
Tracey Cox: that is what i heard
me: thats just nonsense
Tracey Cox: if you said so
me: The applicants for visa may be required to prove they have sufficient funds to support themselves, but not in the form of cash shown in the window during the interview, comon!! The applicants should have good jobs, bank accounts or present a letter from the inviting side (affidavit of support). This is how they should prove, and not by showing a bunch of cash weeks or months before departure date,
me: so you dont need it
me: Basic travel allowance (BTA) to be shown in the airports, customs or Embassies is a baloney!!! If somebody mentions it, it's a 100% scam.
me: who told you you need a BTA?
Tracey Cox: so you mean is lie
Tracey Cox: but when me and my late friend is coming down here they ask us how much we have
Tracey Cox: and some more question like that
Tracey Cox: but is my late friend that answer them
Tracey Cox: she told me that they want us to have enough cash with us
Tracey Cox: thats why i believe when in heard about it
Tracey Cox: but i think i have to go to the airport before that date to know more about it
Tracey Cox: or what do you think ?
me: yes you must first enquire what you need to travel here
me: and then please let me know
Tracey Cox: okay hun
Tracey Cox: did you know why am telling you these now
Tracey Cox: there is someone that is talking about travelling yesterday too she told her frieend that they said the bta is 1000usd
Tracey Cox: and she is going to southafrica
me: passport and visa would be reguired as stated below, as for monetory requirement, that might just be advised, but not required,
Tracey Cox: hun tell me am i wrong with all what am saying ?
me: yes no bta needed only passport or visa
Tracey Cox: but you know your country is different from these country
Tracey Cox: you know that
me: i just looked it up, there no bta anymore
me: also not in nigeria

I had first met the scammer via the paid dating msn site match.com. She/he (?) seems to be a very experienced scammer who has the ability to make people trust her during a long period of chatting. She chatted at the strangest times, also late in the evening, so I have always thought this could not be a dating scammer/ organisation. Isn't that trustworthy? She also send some 'hot pics'' for ''my eyes only''' and I was a man who fell into this trap...
1) Caution! Even [i]paid dating sites have scammers on them!
2) This was a very hard and expensive learning experience for me.
3) I will never trust anyone on internet when i have not seen them in real life again.
4) I will never wire any money again to anyone who I have not met before in real life.

Compliment of the season. I appreciate your concern and your willingness so far for assisting me, the most important thing i need from you right now is your honesty and trustworthiness. I choose you in this transaction, based on my present status here in Dakar as a refugee under asylum. According to the financial governing laws of this country, people under refugees are not allowed to participate into monetary transaction or operate personal bank accounts with large sums international or locally.
I want you to understand more about my situation here in the camp, I am e-mailing you from the office of the Rev.Father who is pastoring at the church in the refugee camp, I have explained to him a little about my life though not everything, i told the Rev.Father about my communication with you and he permitted me to access my e-mail in his office computer twice a day, here in the refugee camp, meanwhile life is just not easy since I don't have any body here to take care of me.
I don't have access to further my education, no access to clean water, no access to good food here in the refugee camp, life has not been easy for me. I'm only surviving through the aid of the Rev. Father, he has permited me to be receiving phone calls from you through his office telephone number; which is as follows:(00221-7683-92-823) remember to ask of me Miss Esther Samuel Doe the Liberian girl when you will call.
Moreover, I went into serious discussion with the holding bank where this money is deposited into, for them to advise me on what to do in order to have access to my late father's fund, the legal department of the bank told me that in a situations like mine, that the best solution is by soliciting for assistance of a reliable foreigner who can assist me claim, receive the fund and invest it on my behalf as I wish.
I then decided to contact you, hoping that with your advanced knowledge we can be able to work together, so that if all things works out for us, we can go into life partnership if you wish because i am not yet married. Though it took me time to make up my mind to contact you and offered you this proposal of mine of which my whole life depends on.
I will furnish you with all the vital documents covering the deposited fund under the holding bank, only if you can promise me that you are not going to betray me or sit on my inheritance after it might have got into your account, Please understand that there is no illegality involvement in this transaction, you are going to deal with the holding bank directly.I will send to you the contact of this bank where the Funds is deposited, for you to establish immediate contact with them for the transfer.
Finally, i am suggesting that if we can go into joint business as time goes on which means that the proceedings from the investment in your country shall be shared equally between the both of us because i do not know much about international business and i am putting my entire inheritance of my late father to your care because i want you to be in total control of my funds as soon as the fund arrives in your country.Please i will like you to send to me your full data such as .
(1) your Home adress----------------------------------
(2) your full name --------------------------------------
(3) your phone number---------------------------------
(4) your fax number------------------------------
(5) your date of birth -------------------------------
on reply of this email will i forward to you all the contact of the Bank where this Money is deposited by my late father for you to make contact with them and ask them the possibility of releasing the money to your acount, i am looking forward to read from you.and After the transaction we will work for my coming to your country within 1 or 2 weeks time. I will be expecting your reply, attached is my picture for you to know me more. please dear i am not t separate you from you relationship OK
