Report N1 (added on June, 19, 2012)

She contacted me in match abouth 3 months ago. Her first email came with some cute photos. following emails the photo's were cuter. She claimed she was and MD, an Internist, on a special AMA doctors exchange program (AMA denies having such a program), she gave the phone number of AMA, I spoke to a shady Russian character that claimed he is American (with a thick Russian accent). I checked the location of the phone number it was in a shady area of Bronx New York. She even sent a copy of her US visa, I check with a friend in FBI, no such visa had been issued. She claimed the employer, in my town, is paying for all her travel etc. to get here. The letters got more freindly and finally I was the man of her life and honorable etc. She even had a set of pictures for Mom and Dad.
Just before she was supposed to travel she sent some sexy photos, no nudes, just very sexy (from a doctor?). Then the week before her travel all hell broke lose in her life, the employer in US will not pay her way, she has no money, her family and friends have helped but it's not enough and so on.
I was fooled in sending some money to cover the balance to one Elena Kowaleva from this ficticious agency. She claimed this person is in Moscow but I later checked with with Western Union and the money was picked up on Omsk, Russia.
This lady had a very carefully executed plan, no hurry, the initial travel date etc was set so she worked me towards that date. The date of her travel she didn't have any money to pay some bogus tax because she spent everything on presents for me!!

She asked for my phone number and called me once but the line was disconnected after 15 seconds. Never called again and never gave me a phone number. She still writes an occasional email, not more photos. I answer back letting her know that I am not going to send any more money but she always responds in a friendly way that she needs it to come to me in the US!
