Report N1 (added on June, 29, 2015)

She sent me a message in February from the dating site saying that she liked my profile and wanted to get to know me better. We soon exchanged emails and corresponded directly and exchanged photos for 4 months and 2 weeks. She seemed interesting and said she was looking for love -- sent me photos of herself, many taken at school in the classroom with her pupils where she told me she was a maths teacher. Later she insisted on visiting me first in UK in the summer, even though I had offered to visit her in Ukraine as soon as possible. She seemed reluctant to meet on Skype, but I managed to persuade her to Skype 3 or 4 times -- she seems to be having lots of unexplained and suspicious internet connection problems, when she doesn't write - and sometimes wouldn't answer her phone, with vague excuses. Later she told me teachers at her school had not been paid salaries for several months due to the war and depleted government budget -- as a result she was in debt with apartment rent and asked for US$250 as the hostess was angry, and had nothing much to eat. Also she wanted money to apply for an International passport (US$250) and visa (US$130) to come to visit me in UK. SWIFT money transfer to her bank account has been returned by her bank for failing security checks -- also Western Union has blocked a transfer to her, telling me she is prevented from using their services -- also found out she is blacklisted now on Elena's Models dating website. She is clearly a scammer and a liar but won't answer my questions.

Report N2 (added on March, 21, 2016)

She seemed interesting and said she was looking for love -- sent me photos of herself, many taken at school in the classroom with her pupils where she told me she was a maths teacher. We were in contact via email for about six months. Organised to do a trip together in June 2015 to Europe, thought I had little to lose as I was already travelling to Europe for two months,claimed she could not go a few days before departure due to being a teacher transferred to clean up a school close to the war zone. Had sent her money for air ticket, International passport, etc etc. I do not think she ever bought the tickets, passport etc etc. She seemed reluctant to meet on Skype, and sometimes wouldn't answer her phone, with different excuses told every time. Maria told me teachers at her school had not been paid salaries for several months due to the war and depleted government budget, and that she was in debt with apartment rent and asked for US$250, I questioned how expensive this was for Ukraine, and she told me she had nothing much to eat. Also Western Union had blocked a transfer to her, she is blacklisted now on Elena's Models dating website, Maria said that was because she did not write enough letters. Maria wrote to me for some time after she cancelled the trip, but clearly was waiting for an excuse, picking arguments over nothing, promising to still meet me, but I was long past buying her stories and the reason in the end was she told me was I was not serious about her so she stopped writing to me a few months later She is definitely a scammer.
