Report: This lady sent an email to me on Apr 6, 2012, she claimed that she saw my profile and email on a dating site, she claimed to have been born on March 30, 1982 and she said she was 29 years old. She said she has never been married, no kid and no boy friend, so she wanted to know me more.
I asked her several questions in my mail but did not answer any one of them, which initially made me to suspect her to be a scammer, but I kept on with her.
We kept on exchanging emails almost everyday, but each time I asked her questions, she would never answered any of my questions, she claimed not to be very good in internet and also in English.
She has sent me 14 mails between April 6 and April 25. We were also exchanging pictures as well. She seems to be a smooth operator in scamming, her mails seems too good to be a scammer, apart from not answering my question. She told me about her life, education, her job and about her town, she also gave me the address.
All along, I did not suspect any foul play. She was planning to pay me a visit here in United States, in fact, I was already making plans for her visit, I have put my house in good other, made a good preparation for her visit, I have already discussed with my boss that I would need 2-week vacation, just to have time for her.
Arrangement was going on for her visit, she did not ask for any money, and she was given me up date about her visa application, and she kept assuring me of her love for me. And so one day, I was just on the internet, and I decided to google her home address that she gave me, I just wanted to know about the city, not because I was suspecting her. What I saw almost throw me off the ground! The address was said to be a scammer's address of one Ekaterina, the address linked me to stop-scammers.com, and from there, I was linked to previous letters written by scammers and the letters was exactly all the letters I have been receiving from this lady,and with the same name,Tatyana. I was dumbfounded!. It was like the letters were copied from my box.
When I came back to my senses, I decided to carry on a further search, behold, I saw her picture among the scammers pictures posted on stop-scammers.com. As at that time, she has not asked me for money, but was already at Moscow (according to her mail to me) trying to get her ticket and the visa. I decided to play along with her, having know the truth now. Few days later, she called me from this no 16613803000 and we spoke for about 70seconds, looking at the number, it is a no from US, but I did not bother to ask her, since I have known who she really was.
Two days later, she wrote me and said that she had gotten her return ticket but she was refused visa at US embassy in Moscow because she did not show evidence of enough money, so she wanted me to send $600 to her so that she can show it to them at the embassy, she promised to keep the money and return it to me when she arrive in U.S.
I told her to give me sometime, meanwhile, I googled the full names and the Moscow address she gave me to wire the money through Western Union, but no scam result was found on the name and the address. She is really a smooth operator. I would have fall for this woman if not for the home address and the picture as well as other posted letters that looked exactly like the one she wrote me that I found on stop-scammers.com
