REPORT N1 (added on March, 23, 2007)
Ron (USA)

I started corresponding with this woman. She was very charming and was very specific in all of her letters to me. I sent her money on four occasions amounting to several thousand dollars, including enough money to be interviewed at her Embassy in order to be approved to come over to America. I also, sent her money to make travel arrangements to come to my country. She was suppose to arrive, but she never showed up at the airport. I telephoned her regularly. She changed her phone number, but gave me the new number. After she did not arrive, I sent her one more email to bait her. I asked her if she was in trouble and needed more money. She wrote me back and said that she was at her mother's house and did not know what to do. I have not heard from her since. I was totally fooled.
$200 Requested help because she was sick
$1,750 Money to arrange travel to America
$300 Money because she needed more help
$650 Additional money for travel to America because of price increase

I smelt a scam from the start so I use a translation program to write my mail in Russian with English as well to help them with their English.
tried to dump this one but they persist now they think they have me convinced they are in St Petersburg Russia but I have set a task in my last email to have photos taken at a known landmark and to send it to me.

Scam Letters

Emails from Lidia Gatlan to Ron (USA)
My dear Love.
Like I promised to you, I write at my earmy morning in order to ,ake you read this letter at the morning of your country and to start the new day with my love words for you and to make the whole day to be successful and in phone connection also, because i miss you and everytime you call me, I want to talk more and more, just all night long and very soon it will be possible, especially for me, cause of huge difference of time, I will sleep when you work and than woke up and will not make you sleep at all with my talking and hugging you all the time, after few days you will be exhausted completely:)

Why does distance have to be so hard? I'd give anything to be in your arms tonight instead of spending another sleepless night alone thinking of you. All I want is to see your face smiling back at me. To hear your voice saying the words I so long to hear. To be safe in your arms. Most of all to feel your passionate kisses. But as I spend another sleepless night alone, my spirits are not dampened because I have the moon, lovable memories of you and your love, the thought of another day gone bye, and a day closer to seeing you. I miss you, my dearest dream. I can no longer tell when I am dreaming or living in my so called reality. When I bring myself to shut my eyes, all I run into is an encounter with you. An encounter I never want to let go of.

When I awake, reality rushes over me. You are not lying beside me as you were in my dream
