Report N1 (added on June, 18, 2005)

This woman contacted me through singleme. Her profile stated she was from Georgia-USA. After initial greetings it took 3 e-mails for her to start dreaming of me with her romantically. Then I stopped hearing from her when I stated money was low. 2 weeks later I started to receive
emails from her again, eccept now she absolutely loved me! She told me she was goingf to come to me, and she was preparing her travel plans. She then told me that she was in luck and for a short time she could get the
passport and all papers and test for $196.00 and asked me to send it by western union. I reminded her that if I could not afford to travel to Russia how could she expect me to have her travel to USA, but she kept insisting, and got offended (ofcourse) when I questioned her motives.
***SO HERE I AM***

Report N2 (added on June, 25, 2005)

Much like the other guy who first reported her, she contacted me through friendfinder. Her profile stated she was from Oregon, USA. She began by telling me she was going to bury her grandmother in some village (in Oregon?) where she didn't have access to the internet. About two weeks later, she sends me another email, saying she was going to be going to the hospital for a week because she had gotten the flu while at the village, and wouldn't be making contact with me. Well, by about the third week, she was devoting her love to me. The emails looked suspicious because she wouldn't answer my questions about her. When she did answer, the English was not the best, and wrote in short sentences. She finally said she wanted to come meet me, and started describing her dreams to me, and telling me she wanted to make love to me, and feel my body in her naked body. She is now asking for 196 dollars so she can get her visa to come to me so we can start our family. At first I agreed, but I had a bad feeling about his, as I have helped family members in another country get visas, and the way this woman was describing it, I felt there was something wrong. Specially when she sent some "sexual pictures" of
herself. Who does that with a complete stranger? Anyway, she is still asking me for the 196 bucks. I told her I was going to send the payment to the embassy, and she insisted I send it to her. I'm glad I found this site so we can stop this *%^&^%(*^ from doing it to other men in America, and other countries.

Basically, the same as the two reports that are on there
now...let her sucker me into the $196, knowing I was probably flushing it away...within three days of having the "visa money", she'd flown to Moscow, had a visa, had a reservation for a flight and needed almost $900.
She slips-up a lot on details, if any are ever provided.

Report N4 (added on August, 26, 2005)

I have been corresponding with Lilya for about 2 months now. I made it very clear that I would not send any money but would come to Russia instead. She said she didnt want my money and she was happy with out it. She has just received a letter from the US embassy in Moscow for
an interview for a Visa. She is flying there and then buying a plane ticket to fly here to see me. No mention YET of needing money but Im going to play this one out and see what excusse she uses. Thank you so much for the info on this lady. I had already decided not to send money but who
knows what might have happened. I will keep you informed.

"My darling Darrell,
This is not the most pleasant thing to talk about.
But I have to. I understand and listen to you. But you
should also try to understand me.
I do everything what depends on me. Perhaps, you know
that many people want to leave Russiaand all of them need
to get visa. And if I don't pay nobody will look and pay
attention to me at the Embassy.
All the paperwork will be done rather quickly but only when
I pay for visa. That is the only problem I have at the moment.
And I need to pay for visa in some days. If we don't, we could forget about my coming to you as the time will pass. I want to see you so much and I hope you can understand me...
I am not going to use you because of the money or the chance to get into your country.
I have very serious intentions and I am not playing with
people's lives. You offend me asking such questions!
I am able to get visa for 1 week. It will be very fast!!!
And it will be valid 3 months.
I would arrive to your place as soon as I get visa!!!
Or we can do it in the way which is more convenient for you.
But you should understand that I ask you for money as I have a very good chance now to get visa without any problems. In other case I willl be not able to get it for long time. And we will not meet with you then.
You can send money through Western Union:
It is not far from the place I work. I need only $198.
My full name is Marina Kosyakova.
I have met you. I love you and I don't want to lose you now. I just can't... Please, listen to me.
That's shame for me and I feel so confused to ask you this.
But you are the only person I can ask for this. You know that I have nobody in my life except you.
My sweetheart, please, do something. You know how I appreciate you and I need your help very much.
I do it for you, for US, for our future Relation with you!!!!
You are the only hope I have.
I will understand everything and will try to overcome it but
in this case we will lose the agency we have now.
I love you and I hope so much for your understanding.
Wait for your reply.

This woman has sent me many e-mails and only asks for money for visa and plane ticket. Fell in love after three letters. A real scammer.
