Report N1 (added on December, 7, 2005)

She is using the visa-ticket scam. She sent a copy of her visa to me. I sent it to the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. They confirmed the visa was fake.

Report N2 (added on September, 12, 2006)

I met Olga thru Match on March 24, 2006. Her profile said she was from my home state. Her first email was in perfect English and was sent to me thru Match.com. After I responded to her email, she told me she was from Russia. All subsequent emails were in broken English and were sent from her Yahoo email address to mine instead of through Match.com. Soon after the first few email exchanges I noticed her Match.com profile no longer existed. I kept corresponding with her anyway. We exchanged email letters almost daily. I got a new picture of her with every email. We began to talk about meeting. First she proposed meeting in Europe, which I agreed to. Then she talked about coming to visit me at my home. She said she was making travel arrangements and on March 17, I got the first request for money to pay for air travel. I resisted and kept suggesting that I visit her instead. She insisted that she come to me so she could stay for a month. After several emails and a few weeks I relented and sent $850 Western Union (not including nearly $100 in Western Union fees.) The Western Union money was picked up in Cheboksary, Russia. Money Transfer Control Number [MTCN] was: 9051244174. She continued to email me that she had made the travel arrangements. Soon, she sent me her travel itinerary. She was scheduled to arrive May 19th. She said she traveled to Moscow to the airport a few days before the plane was to leave and found out that The US Border security agency required that she have money in order to show that she could support herself once in the US. Of course she did not have the money and she began asking me to send $2000 to her. Again, I resisted. We went back and forth with this for a few days and as her travel date approached she said she was able to get $1650 from friends and family and that she only needed $750 from me. I told her that the difference between $1650 and $2000 was $350, not $750. She said okay and that I should send the $350 right away. I called one of the airlines involved (Continental) and they said she had made the reservations through a travel agency but never bought the tickets. By now the travel date came and went. She said she had gotten the tickets changed so that she could fly next week. I do not plan to send any more money. She has even called me to ask for the money. When confronted with the fact that she did not buy air tickets with the money I sent, she broke off contact.

Report N3 (added on April, 4, 2007)

I met this gal on Singlesnet, we emailed for 2 months and she ignored my questions about physical address and phone number/ calling her in general. I more or less demanded to know why she was ignoring the questions in the emails and she said a phone was hard to find where she lives and works. We exchanged many emails, she was very complimetary, romantic all that. At one point I had not heard from her in 2 weeks or so. I sent her an email asking if our communication was over and wished her luck. She replied back saying she had been sick, etc. I missed replying to one of her emails for a couple days and she became aggravated wanting to know what was going on. I told her 3 days wasn't anything to worry about especially since she had gone for longer periods of time without writing. Next email I was her only one and she wanted to know how we could meet, perhaps in Europe - I said that would be fine, but I had to wait until June/July for vacation, which she ignored repeatedly along with some very pointed questions. Suddenly she was talking to a travel agaent, getting a visa and so on. I have almost all of the emails and plenty of pictures.
