Report: I was contacted by sharon elliot on PerfSpot a few weeks ago. She said that she was in Africa(everyone I have chatted with on PerfSpot is in Africa,seems like...) She was down there with her father and was doing some modeling(her profile said she was a model). We chatted back and forth until she wrote that she was sad and depressed, when I asked why she said she hadn't eaten in a few days cause she had no money... When I told her I had no money, she got angry and said that she would not meet me ever!!! Then she called back and apologized for her outburst.I said fine, no problem. Then a few days later she wrote and asked me for a favor. When I asked what, she asked me to cash a check for her; she would send me the check,I was to deposit it in my account then send her the money. I just wrote

Report: I was contacted out of the blue by Ekaterina in May and corresponded with her for a few weeks and she sent photos of herself. I was signed up with RWD(RussianWomenDiscussion.com) and I posted her photo and a letter stating she wanted to come visit me. I recieved a flood of e-mails from many men who had been contacted by this woman.From then on I stopped communicating with her, but she had one more trick up her sleeve. A friend of hers e-mailed me saying that she was in a terrible auto accident and that she needed an operation,but they didnt have enough to cover it. so they were asking all her friends to contribute. That was the final straw--I blocked her from my mailbox permanently...

>police. When they turned around to drive, I got out a pen and paper so I
>could write down the license number if I got out of the car alive. This
>panicked them. They both came over the seat and very forcefully tried to
>remove the pen and paper. For some reason they
>were more interested in the paper. I jammed the pen into Romans
>ribs. That caused him to leave me alone. Michael continued wrestling
>with me, but never got the pen or paper, although the paper was pretty
>much destroyed. It happened to be the scrap of paper I had Romans phone
>numbers on, so it was fortunate I managed to keep it. Roman drove. I
>screamed. People ignored me. Roman got out his gun, which I had also
>seen in Feodosiya. We got some km out into the country. He drove into a
>field behind a dense row of trees, stopped, pointed his gun at me and
>demanded the keys. He knew where he was taking me. He clearly has done
>this before. I gave him the keys. He gave me 200 Hrivna. Later he told
>the police that I had willingly exchanged the 200 Hrivna for the keys and
>that he had never threatened me with his gun. He drove me back to the
>highway and opened the door so I could get out of the car. Without being
>obvious about it. I walked far enough forward to see his front license
>plate before I put on my packs. Remember, I already reported he did not
>have a back license plate. This is a car designed and used by

>station, less than 1 km from the center. (The apartment for which Roman
>was taking $60 was 3 km from the center.)
> Next morning the police picked me up at 8:30 as scheduled. They took
> me to the police station and copied my passport. Then they told me to
> wait a minute. At 9:30, a guy from yesterday walked nearby. I knew he
