Report N1

Ekaterina contacted me from a profile I had posted on FriendSearch.com. The first message I received is titled "Hi!"
The messages that have images attached are as follows:

"All my thoughts only about you!
From Russia with love for Patrick!
Good News! (Image of Visa - filename is Good-news.jpg)
Hi from far Siberia!
Hi my american friend
Hi, my dear Patrick!
Hi my friend Patrick
Hi my friend Patrick
Hi my good friend Patrick!
I want to sing a song for you Patrick
It's me, your girlf-riend Ekaterina
Patrick! I am happy that you have written to me!!!"

We corresponded for about six weeks. She told me that she had a mandatory vacation approaching and that she would like to visit me. She initially said she would pay all of her travel expenses. After she supposedly secured a B1/B2 visa from an "agency", she told me that she was $224.00 US short for the airfare,and that she had already put down all of her money to purchase the ticket - including money she had gotten by pawning her jewelry. I sent her $250.00 by Money Gram. I was doing some research on travel to visit her in Stepanovka later this fall when I accidentally found a report about her on another SCAMMER site. It appears that someone is using boiler-plate master documents, sets of pictures and names that may or may not belong to the scammers involved, and personalizing the responses. I was completely fooled. I'm just glad I figured it out before it cost me more money and heartache. She is supposed to arrive at LAX this Friday, July 4th. I can't imagine my frustration if I would have actually showed up at LAX to pick her up and she never arrived. I am embarrassed enough in front of my friends and family, whom I had told about this "wonderful" Russian girl.
Thank you for alerting other possible victims to the method of operations of this heartless person or persons.
