Hiro (Japan)

We decided to meet in Helsinki after many mail exchange and talk with phone for about two months.
And she asked me money for the outlay of bus tour from St.Petersburg to Helsinki.
According to her request, I sent her over US$500 via Western Union. After transfer money, she has disappeared, and has not appeared in Helsinki finally.
She was a very clever scammer.
Mark (UK)

She is a very clever and persistent scammer and nearly convinced me except when I noticed that the photos she was sending me were of a different and more pretty girl! I confronted her about this and she claimed that she had been writing for her friend in the pics sent by the man from Japan. That girl had since found a boyfriend and now she herself wanted to "marry" me. I was very suspicious and she was asking for me to meet her in Estonia. She asked me to book everything through her "local travel agency" so I called her bluff and replied that I would book everything through my agency in the UK which I duly did with the right to cancel the hotel at anytime. Sure enough she asks for the travelling costs which were $150 and like a fool I sent the money by WU transfer. Amazingly she didn't disappear at this point but wrote back thanking me for the money!! I never heard from her again after this and her email flamingice@hotbox.ru stopped working surprise surprise! Lookily I never did book a flight and got a full refund for the hotel so I got off lightly really at about ?100. Be warned these people are clever and highly manipulative!!!!
