Report N2 (added on April, 20, 2012)

E-mailed me out of nowhere, said she got me email from a dating site( my email is not posted on any site). Very typical russian scammer, a few letters, love, and just need a little money to complete her trip to me. She even provided a passport! Funny that you can see the scotch tape holdind her picture to the fake document!

Got exact same picture as i have seen on this site. Asked me for money after about 10 letters. Pictures with all her letters. If she came to the Uk and went to Uni she'd be dangerous. She even sent pics of her holding her passport. Good thing is shes not to clever yet...

I befriended this woman recently but now im sure she is a con or scammer.she said to me in her first or 2nd mail she was not a was when she was arranging a visa from russia to here i got she had not asked for any money off me until she was applying for the visa she asked me for $240 dollars to pay for it.she said it would take 7 days.she applied for that 19 days ago & gave me her passport pic when she applied.but i have been checking on the visas & it certainly does not take as long as 19 days & she is reluctant to answer my questions etc since she applied.i do not know if you want me to give you her friends name who mailed me back in january who she claimed to be a friend of which was her introduction letter mail.

Report N5 (added on June, 17, 2013)

Got email from scamer out of nowhere.
Corresponding about 1 month.
Strange was that she did not directly reply on issues in mail sent to her.
Money requested for Visa application, medical and insurance.
Thereafter money requested for ticket and travel money.
Money requested by Mariya Rubleva, Apartment 17, 12 Gogolya St, Novosibirsk.
Amount requested USD 240 to send by WU or moneygram. Thereafter USD 976 for ticket.
Then after that USD 500 to 550 for travel moeny.
At this stage I did not send any money and requested copy of Visa and air ticket.
Needless to say, all correspondence stopped altogether.
I searched on Google for images provided and got some results of others being scammed as well.
Also searched text of email, and received even more reports of this scammer.

Report N6 (added on August, 28, 2013)

This person operates a scam. I received emails with photographs of her in everyday situations and with a friend and they seemed perfectly genuine. Somehow she got hold of my email address - that should have alerted me! Quite soon she had fallen for me and wanted to come to my country. She needed money for a visa, plane tickets and to get through customs which I sent her on 4 occasions by western union. Always she was delayed from coming and always she needed more money. When I finally said there was no more money the emails dried up. I now realize through this site that she has tried the same scam with other men. I have learnt a lesson which cost me $2500 not to mention a dose of heartbreak. The moral is clear - don't give money to anyone you haven't met in person no matter how genuine they appear to be. Thankfully I realised what was happening before I parted with even more money. It has been a very painful lesson.

Report N7 (added on August, 30, 2013)

She emailed me out of the blue about 3 months ago, and wrote once a week, from an internet cafe she said. 4th letter she sent me her phone number, but says she can only receive calls from Russia. 6th letter she sent her address, and asked me to write. I did write, and sent her a gold bracelet too. She said she is waiting for a student visa, and wants to come to England to University. She sent me many photos of herself in a bikini. I told her I am 58, and she is just 28, so I am too old for her. She replied that it does not matter to her, and said when two people are in love, age does not matter. I never said anything about being in love with her. Anyway I checked the Border Agency regulations for requirements to come here on a student visa, and sent her the link. I reminded her that she has to have a confirmed course to enter England on a student visa. She seemed to ignore this, and said she is coming on a visa, and then looking for a college or Uni place. I know this is not possible - she has to show a confirmation letter from the Uni just to enter the country. Now she tells me she has all the paperwork and will be here next month, but she needs me to send her $240 for the visa. By Western Union. So I checked on the scammers sites last week and I found her photos under the name of MARIYA RUBLEYA. Same photos, and same letters she wrote to me, but instead of living in Tomsk, this Mariya lives in NOVOSIBIRSK. She has just sent me a photo of her passport in the name of Galina Vatolina, and the photo of Mariya Rubleya's passport on one site is exactly the same, apart from the name and date of birth of course. Galina has even told me she would like to live with me, and is saying she would like us to get married even, and have a family. (I did tell her she can be my lodger, as I have a spare bedroom). I don't think I would agree to marry a woman I have never even met really, and at 58 I am much too old to be having kids, but I will write back to her tonight and see what she says next when I tell her I am broke and I have no money. I was wary of this woman - I told her I am more than twice her age, and she still kept sending lovey dovey letters, even though I never showed any interest. Now she has asked me for $240 to pay for her Student Visa, and she says she has to pay for it within 7 to 10 days (from Friday 23 August 2013). She says she can come here for 3 months to look for a University to enrol with, then she can find a job and stay here. (England) This I know to be totally untrue, as I checked on the UK government website, UK Border Agency, and it clearly states that to enter England on a Student Visa, a letter from the College or University confirming that the person has been accepted on a course must be shown, and they must have proof that they have sufficient funds to support themselves for the duration of the stay. There is no provision for someone to come here and then look for a University to enrol with. Also, someone who has to borrow the money for a visa is not going to have any funds to support themselves. I had another email from her (Galina) last night (27th August 2013), asking me to quickly send this money to her in Tomsk by Western Union or Moneygram. A cheque is no good, as she cannot cash it, she says this is not possible in Russia. I checked with the scammer list websites, and found her listed under the name of Mariya Rubleva. She has sent the same pictures of herself to me as Galina, and to others as Mariya, and even photos of her passport, with the same photo, but different names and dates of birth, and different addresses. I am not sure how I can contact the Russian police - after all she is committing a crime against me right now - but I could perhaps phone the British Police and ask them what I should do. She really must be stopped, and she has mentioned her friend to me (Vika) who does the photos, so she is not alone with this.

I got an unexpected email.

Report N9 (added on January, 21, 2014)

The first and last letter,her passport and the student visa I helped her get are on this site.
She seemed very legit, I couldn't find her on stop scammers, and I really wanted to help her start a better life here in Canada.
Willing to study and work at the same time, later realizing she can't do both without a work visa.
Long story short she scammed me out of money for a student visa, half the cost of a flight ticket, and money for going through customs for living expences.
