Report N1 (added on June, 20, 2006)

I got contacted at the beginning of april at FriendFinder and we started to correspond. We write to each other almost everyday, she is very convincing and seems serious, she answered all my questions. I told her from the beginning I am not going to send money to her, I will go directly through a travel agency so after a while I told her to visit one and ask them to arrange her trip to Sweden. She told me she visit one in Pskov named Dars Travel. This was the first time I got suspicious. The agency had no e-mail, no phone and no website and the name of travel agent was Alexey. Some days earlier I got a mail from a guy with the same name who said he can help me to investigate if the woman I am interested in is a scammer or not. I have never search for such help and the e-mail from him was addressed just to me. I told her I will use a other agency choosed by me. Then she told me that if I don¦t trust her I had to visit her or she will search for her man in her own country. We continued to write each other for a while then I told her I trust her and asked her to contact the agency again and give all the information I need to arrange her trip. The only thing the agency needed for the visa was my address, nothing more from me. I knew that it¦s not that easy to get the visa, I played along. She told me the details for sending money, except the details about the bank there was this information:
Beneficiary:
Beneficiary's account: 42301978715001002222,
Beneficiary's name: Romanov K. E.
Payment details: Private transfer to Telebank client 914403

I copy the last row and searched on the Google and got one hit...it was used by a scammer in Samara in Russia, far away from Pskov, and with the same name, Romanov. Mariya had told me this was the owner of the travel agency...
Of course I was disappointed because I really liked this girl and thought she was serious but I am glad I did¦nt loose any money.
