Report N1 (added on July, 29, 2005)

Tatyana wrote to me saying she was in a work program thru an agency that was arranging for her to travel to the US within a few days and she wanted to meet me. She said the agency would arrange a job in a store or shop for 6 months with a hotel room and she would like to have a
friend near by. She stated that she could go to any US city and wanted to know if I would be open to meeting her when she arrived and help her with transitioning to US culture. Within 3 or 4 letters she wanted to come and
live together and see if we were a good match. She said all her expenses were paid for and she was on her way. She took a flight to Moscow from Vladivstok to stay with friends while her documents were being prepared by
the Embassy and to take a medical examine. When she arrived in Moscow all of a sudden sha realized she didn't have enough money to purcahse her plane ticket to the US and she wanted me to send her an additional $500. USD to help her purchase her airline ticket to complete her trip. She had to have the money within two days in order to buy her airline ticket and she would repay me as soon as she arrived in the US and started to work.

Report N5 (added on August, 30, 2005)

The same story as Bill Norwood, i saw her photo's and thought by myself : "to beautyfull to be true" and yes, i was right.
I did not send money to this person (is she a woman ?). A few years ago, a woman from Lugansk, named Julia Shulga, scammed me, i was so naive to sent her money via Western Union, that was a good lesson.
Gentlemen, never trust letters with pics of beauty's!

Report N14 (added on October, 12, 2005)

I did not get scammed by this woman, but many might have. BUT, I knew it was a scam, and played her out till I knew her name,(hoping that they use their real names to get the money??)
Anyway, I knew it was a scam because I had already been scammed the month before with th e same letters and photos from another Russian woman.
Elena Gerasimova scammed me for $540.(US) the month before. So the letters I had spent hours writting to Elena, were the letters I copied and pasted to answer this scammers letters(made that easy).
They will send the same letters, with the same photos, using the same headings, even their instant message to initiate contact. BUT, I do not believe they know each other, when the second woman, (this woman) contacted me with the same instant message as the first woman(Elena), I thought it was Elena, and sent her a quick instant message ment in anger, it was: " YOU MUST TALK TO ME!!! " Because I was mad that she had stolen my money, she did not reply. So, I e-mailed her from another e-mail address I have, and used a different name, told her that she had contacted me on a singles site, and that I was sorry I could not get back to her right away. She answered my e-mail, with the same first letter, and the
same 3 pictures, BUT, heres the cool part, SHE ALSO E-MAILED ME!!!. It was not the same woman, her name was Elana not Elena. And she wrote to my e-mail address because she did not know I had already seen these
letters,and these photos. And I can tell you every word her e-mail was going to say(I had already gotten them.) She even used the same heading in her e-mails as the first woman, and MYSELF and ME, both got the same
e-mails as the first woman, and every letter was the same, and all the same photos came when they were supposed to. I only played along so that she would
reveal her name so I could send her money.(NOT!) Anyway, so the letters are not real they are copied from a file or something, so they know what heading to paste, and then the letter, then the photos, all exactly the
same. It's the same woman in the photos, but, they are not her.
Anyway they both found me at American Singles, and used the same heading in their profiles, it was : "WAITING FOR THE MIRICLE TO COME"
(BEWARE!!! those words!)
They will send letters in this order :
1: Hello
2: Nice to meet
3: Kiss
4: Moscow
5: Info (that's as far as I went with this woman, just enough to get her info) ELENA's FORM LETTERS continued with:
7: (YOUR NAME)! (pleading for help)and if you were fool enough to send her money (like me.)
8: URGENT! (pleading for more money, which she will return to you when she gets there, (you will never hear from her again.)

Her initial instant message will be:
"Hello my hope!
I am not sure you get this message but if you got I want you to know that I want to travel to your country to work in two weeks and I just want to meet right man.I live in Russia and my goal is to leave this country because it is impossible to live here for young pretty woman. if you have
not wife or girlfriend ,maybe we could try to meet? I am
*(HER NAME) ,I am *(HER AGE) years old ,please write to me directly to my mail- *(HER E-MAIL ADDRESS) See you soon"

This woman found me, not sure how. I showed a friend the letter (which sounded like a scam in the works) and he found her here on this site. I never sent her money, nor has she asked but I know it's just a matter of time. Her letters(2) to me are almost carbon copies of those
used on other men.

This person contacted me through, was very warm in her letters, then she asked for $500.00 for airline ticket as she had spent most of her money on other things and didn't realize that tickets cost so much. I sent money via WU. She even called me. Haven't heard bak since.

Report N18 (added on October, 12, 2005)

Same M.O. as the others. She stated she was coming to the US under a work visa in a few days. She did not ask for money untill a few days before her flight after her visit to the US embassy to apply for her visa.
Then she asked for 600.00 for flight tickets that she had to show the embasy before they would give a visa. I contacted the embassy in moscow and found out she had not been there and they gave me this site to check out.

Report N19 (added on February, 21, 2006)

She wrote me from a strange mail adress and the mail was sent to But that address is not mine! How that mail arrived to me?
I replied few lines and she wrote me the same things, almost, recived from other people on that site.
When she arrived in Moscow asked to me 850$! I live in Italy and the ticket from Moscow is very more cheap than 1090,00USD she said me! No reply to my questions, no phone number, no more info about her. The strange thing si that when i said:"i can buy your ticket from here for 400 USD, just tell me the day i have to book it" she replied me: "ok, send me that cheap ticket".
From that day she stopped writing me.
Another strange thing is that after i recived the fist mail from that Alexandra i wrote her asking why she are using 3 differents mail addresses and i had back a letter from another russian girl called Oksana GEVONDYAN. That girl are writing to me from another different mail address.
She asked me "only" 600 USD to buy the ticket. When i hasked to the first girl why another girl wrote to me the same letter i recived from her she said me: "don't look other girls, i'm the best!"
The second girl, Oksana, are still writing me but seems she don't understand english! I wrote her that i know she is a swindler and to stop writing me because she have to work really much harder to be able to cheat an italian! but she still writing me!
That people is really stupid, i think.

This is the standard unsolicited mail in your inbox saying that she would like to correspond with you. If you reply she sends all kinds of pics and letters that are several paragraphs long. Within two or three weeks she is on her way to your questions asked.... she is at the airport traveling towards your home.... a day or so later... she needs all kinds of money to complete her trip, and will provide various forms of official looking documents for you.... to think that such a young beautiful woman would up and come to you in two or three weeks of letters is kind of streching it.
