REPORT N1 (added on September, 23, 2016)
I first initiated contact in June 2016 on the dating site Zoosk. She replied that she wanted to communicate via email as she was cancelling her subscription to Zoosk. After a couple of emails or so there was a pause in our communication as she stated she was going out of town for work and would not have access to the internet. About 6 weeks later we began emailing each other again on a regular basis. I first mentioned the idea of meeting at some point but nothing definite. Shortly thereafter, however, she stated she was able to get some vacation time and wanted to meet. She asked me whether it would be better for her to come to Canada or for me to go to Russia; I stated it would be better for her to come to Canada. A little while later she told me that the cost of the trip was more than she could afford and, because we both wanted to meet, she requested I pay half of the costs. (flight, visa, insurance) The amount she was asking for $835. After some hesitation I agreed expecting to pay her upon her arrival. However, when she asked for the money upfront I became suspicious and started to research her travel agency etc. I asked her to prove her identity by taking a photo of a current newspaper/magazine and her passport, which she provided. During this time I came across another website revealing that one of my emails was the same as someone else's which eventually led me to your site. At that time I told her I knew she was a fraud and that I wouldn't give her any money; we ceased communicating at that time.
