John (UK)

This girl is a big time scammer she talked me round to giveing her over $7000 for money to come to me i have got lots of email and copys of paperwork she sent me and lots of pics.
REPORT N4 (added on September, 14, 2007)
Thomas (Sweden)

I dont believe this. This is my third Internet scam reported...
I thought I had the experience to spot the scam, but this one was clever. I was the one to contact her on a Swedish dating site (motesplatsen). And things like this rarely happen there.
I checked the Internet headers in her email, nothing suspicious.
She uses GMail where the origin of email is hard to spot. Then she actually puts effort in answering all my questions. See my correspondence.
Luckily, I found here on this site, under the same name: Tatyana.
I want to give you a great thank you, to you people who run this site!

Needs of course money for airline ticket and of course for Visa and passport and other expenses. Sent me lots of pictures of course which I found to be listed on Facebook as Ekaterina Velsk. Of course the scammer denies having a Facebook site. I did send 50.00 as a test which Western Union reports was picked up in Yoshkar Ola.

I am very glad and grateful to you. That you have written to me.

I never forgot you and always waited your answer. Today I have checked up my mail box, and have been pleasantly surprised, because I have found out your 4 letters. Thanks you. It is very a pity to me, that you have no opportunity to write the letter every day or even in some days. Once to three weeks to write the letter it very painfully for me.

Emails from Tatyana Znatnova to Sean (USA)
Hi Sean
I have read your letter, and to notice, that you too self-confident person. What such person, how you in acquaintances on the Internet searches? You "educated, affectionate and considerate, Financially secure". What to you prevents to find the good girl? I am assured, that you are sympathised with many, looking on yours "Financially secure". I do not wish to be and there will be no one of many. To me that is absolutely not important, how much at the man of money. If I wanted money I would find for a short time to myself the rich husband. But I do not wish to be a beautiful doll for the rich man, to be his next beautiful purchase. The love is necessary to me. The man who will see not only my beauty is necessary, but also to feel my internal inner world. I do not know, you will understand me or not, but I have said, that I wanted.

Hello Sean
You constantly to speak to me: "if you are real". Know, it is a little unpleasant for me. And at all I do not want and I will not prove to you it. In it there is no sense. Probably, when you find out me hardly better, you to understand it. For now I to decide, that I will not pay attention to your mistrust as in what that degrees I understand you. I understand, that on the Internet it is a lot of lie, and you have the right not to trust while to me. Ok, we will see that will occur in the future. Now I very much would like to find out about you about your opinio

First impressions last... I have seen your questionnaire on dating site. I do not understand why I write this letter for you and what I want further, but I have got used to trust my internal desires. Maybe it something means for me... Maybe it something means for you...? I think we may be right for each other. I would be happy to start corresponding with you and get to know each other better.
Joe I'd like to tell you some words about myself. Well...
My name is Ekaterina and I am 27 years old. I think I am romantic, affectionate, reliable, sincere, open, resourceful, eager, witty, warm. For my long-term relation I could be charming and friendly, funny and serious. If we feel that our hearts beet together we'll do anything that we dream about. I do appreciate open and warm relations.
I am an Orthodox Christian, but not a fanatic, it just helps me to answer some of the questions life brings.
What else? I am a teacher of musical school and I teach playing on the piano. I love my profession but family means a lot to me too. I love nice dresses, nice shoes, but more important is to help if somebody around needs it. I try to combine being a weak lady and a strong person. If I succeed in it or not you can estimate at a closer contact.
I hope, that you test the same feelings as I and you will set to me some questions which are interesting to you. Joe I send 2 my pictures and I will wait your next later and your pictures in my email: SUNUE

Emails from Tatyana Znatnova to Gregg (USA)
Hello My Dear Friend Gregg!!!!
Thank you very much for answering my email. I thought, that you will not write me because I live in other country. I'd like to say that you are an unordinary man and you worth all the best.
It is very pleasant to me to receive your photos in your letter. They have very much liked me. Thanks!
I do not have computer at home and I should communicate with you in the library in my city. I visit this library after my work and I cannot visit it often. Gregg I would like to tell about my family more. I do not have children and I never was married. I think, that the family is a serious act in a life and the big responsibility.
Family, in my opinion, is someone who loves you and whom you love either. It can be not only your parents but also people who are dear to you, who take care of you. If you have someone who can do everything for you and you can do the same - you are lucky you have a family. I think that the family in this point of view is one of the most important things in our life, and people who have no family are always lonely and moreover nobody takes care of them. Gregg do you agree with me? My family it's my mum, grandmothar and my grandfother.
I live with mum at apartment in our city. Her name is Elena. She is 51 years old. She work in the factory. She is a very nice, kind and clever woman. My grandmother and my grandfather live in the village, it name Znamenka. Her name is Marina and she 72 years old. She
