REPORT N1 (added on July, 1, 2005)
Jeff (USA)

I was contacted by "Svetlana Smirnova" after putting my profile in Yahoo Personals. Her letters are eaxactly the same as Tatiana & Diego's (James). I found these same letters when I did a search for flowers or something called "Hristyanin". It brought up this website w/the same
REPORT N2 (added on August, 30, 2005)
Julian (Canada)

This woman contacted me through JDate. I have a profile on JDate but it is inactive. I am already corresponding with a good woman in Russia. I thought that this Marina or Svetlana was for sure a scammer because over the years I have developed a good sense for detecting
scammers by the letters they write. She contacted me first which is always a bad sign. I have only received two letters from her so far but I was suspicious enough to browse this site and sure enough I found Svetlana
Smirnova on your site. She is the same woman as Marina who contacted me. I am sure I am being set up for a scam. I would not have fallen for it anyway because I am committed to another good woman in Russia but I do
want to alert others.
REPORT N3 (added on September, 13, 2005)
Bob (USA)

I almost got taken by this "****" to the tune of $650.00 which is what she told me that she was "short" on purchasing her plane ticket to the US to come & "be with me." When I gave Western Union her name, I was
cautioned that she had been sent money by another gentleman in the US within the last 10 days & that was how many Russian women made their living. After doing a search, I found the "Stop Scammers" website AND I
then found her picture (same girl, same outfit, DIFFERENT name)! And to think that I was about to send her the money...I felt really sickened. RELIEVED that I didn't go through with it, but relieved nonetheless.
REPORT N4 (added on September, 30, 2005)
James (USA)

She did send me a number of photographs. Interested?
I hope this will help you out.
The good thing in all this is that I never sent her any money.
REPORT N5 (added on April, 4, 2006)
Kevin (USA)

I contacted her on americansingles and we talked for about a week after which she told me she had a problem with the internet cafe she goes to and she wanted me to first send $700 and her mom gave her $300 for a computer setup. then in next email she told me she borrowed $500 from work and she did not want to suffice $500 so she wanted $450 from me in that letter. I stoped emailing her for about 2 weeks after which I tried to contact her again and she has not responded yet(it has been 4 days). I did not send money to her knowing it was a posible spam as I was spamed on skype from another girl.

Hi Jeff!
Honestly speaking Jeff, I was very surprised that you have answered me. Now I understand that people in your country are really responsible! But I want to be honest with you Jeff. I have a very close girlfriend. Her name is Katya. She has made me go to the computer club to find my soul mate in the Internet. Jeff, may be you want to know how did I find out you? It did take very long time. When me and my girlfriend Katya did come to Internet - cafe we did ask help from manager of Internet - cafe. He told me that there is very good site a called www.yahoo.com, and this site have non-toll-free membership. Manager paid with his credit card. Of course Jeff, I have paid him for it. Because there are many women who want to find their soul mate, and he helps them to pay for some sites. Then I did carry in criterion of searching. I did not carry many, only age. And my GOD, I got 1000 persons in results! It was interesting and fun to watch. I did flip through pages, next, next, next, but I did not like anybody. Katya did weary from this and asked me to go home, but I did not want it, I just always try to do commenced to finish! Katya did go but I did stay! And approximately on 500's or 600's page (I do not remember exactly) I seen your photo!!! I do not know why, but something did happen in my soul and I decided to know you more! Thank you that you did response to me! By the way Jeff, I even did not know in which city I did find out! It was surprise for me.

Hello friend!I am very happy to see your letter in my post box. I even couldn’t think that I will get your reply so soon.My girlfriend in U.S.A has registered me on a site. Let me tell a little about myself.My full name is Elena. I’m 25 years old. I live in the city of Kazan. Kazan is an old and ancient Russian city with a rich history. There are many historical places in my city. My city is situated on the biggest river of Russia-Volga. The population of my city is more a little that 1 million people. I finished the Institute and I have an economical education. At the moment I work in one of the Tourist agencies of our city as an assistant to the bookkeeper.

I understood that I can find the better life that in Russia because the life in Russia is really difficult an
