Hey fellas, I am completing my report on Nataliya Vanganova. As you can see thee letters and pics are the same profile as they are to the other guys with a few minor additions. If anything is missing please feel free to contact me at my e-mail. You will notice that she doesn't directly ask for money. The scammers are getting smarter. You will notice that in one of her letters there is a reference to an international calling card. I talked to some friends who have been to Russia and asked them what the costs of an international calling card would cost and they said it was cheap, around $5.00-$20.00. I wrote to her (without mentioning the price of the card) and asked her to check on the price of the calling card and she wrote back the prices you see in the letter. Right there ......RED FLAG...... I knew this had to be a scam. I told her not to buy the card. You will also notice that in some of the letters some of the sentences it looks like some of it has been deleted. Obviously the content was not to be included in the letter to me. I did a reverse zip code on the address that she gave me and it points to a city close to Sernur. The city is Yoshkar-Ola (Joshkar-Ola) in the republic of Mari El. I know, I have a lot of time on my hands! You will notice that when she gives me the address she doesn't include the name of the city or the Republic. The last letter is the last correspondence. She usually writes every day but for the last couple of days she has missed a day here a day there. I expect a letter most likely on Tues.
