This young lady expressed interest in me from the afore mentioned web site. We conversed several letters and many photos were sent. then she started asking for money for travel. only 350usd cause her father was going to give the rest. Thenshe went to get visa and said that she needed 100usd for every day she would be staying in the USA. I got on the US Embasst web site and got all the paper work and sent it to her and explained it only cost 185usd for visa app.and finger prints and have not heard from her since. She did say her web site was down and wrote me at an alt. website which now is an invalid e-mail address lena_and_mike@mail.ru
I have talked to the fraud dept at my bank and they are going to try to recover the 350 I sent as a wire thru jp morgan chase that went onto alfa-bank moscow
Ken (USA)

Asked for money for Visa, Passport, Travelling Expenses.
After the request for money was turned down, I told her that it would not work to try to get her to come here, I got a short message from her cousin Marina saying that Svetlana was ill and in the hospital for a week. After three weeks of writing e-mails I let her know that I was not going to try anymore and that I believed that this was just a scam to get money. A week later I saw her ad on SingleMe.com where she stated that she was two inches taller and living in Scranton, Russia. I contacted SingleMe and they removed her ad.

Jeffrey (USA)

The ususal. Response to my profile, nice letters, sent some pictures, never answered my questions, fell in love in 4 weeks and needed money for travel to meet me - she asked for $650. I refused to send cash and, heartbroken, she broke it off abruptly and said farewell. I say, "Good riddance."

Scam Letters

Emails from Svetlana Smirnova to Ken (USA)
Hello dear Ken,
I am so pleased that such a sweet and charming man like you got interested in me. You have made my day today and I am looking forward to get to know you better. I feel so excited about writing to a man from so far away. I have never done anything like that before. I broke with my last boy-friend in April, 2003 and have been single ever since. I have been advised this way of meeting by one of my friends. She met her husband on line and now they are happily living together. I have read your ad and I do like very much what you wrote in it. You sound like a very good man and I'd love to stay in touch with you. I know we are living in two different countries, so far away from each other... but that does not mean we have to start looking for that special someone living at a distance of 10 miles only or so. After all, you never know where happiness is waiting for you. Though, I do not put a lot of hopes in correspondence. I have to admit it is a good way to get to know as much information as it is only possible about each other but there are also lots of other ways, which are far better in my opinion. What do you think, say, about having a phone talk arranged? I'd love to talk to you on the phone as it is something close to real, close to normal, rather than virtual and that is all I want. Dear Ken, I apologize if I sound too forward. I have always been open and honest with people about everyting. Truth is always better, no matter how b
