I don't know how Marina found out my E-mail address. I received her first message on July 5 and the second one on July 18. The content of her message is exactly the same, word by word.

Report N3 (added on January, 4, 2010)

This young lady is a very professional scammer,in the other gentlemans report she claims to be a doctor,,to me she claims to be an engineer who has just moved to Kazan. I have spoken to her frequently on yahoo messenger and she is good. Incredible lier and scammer. So convincing..such a pro. First she asked me after 1 months of correspondance to come visit her. She said it was difficult for her now in Kazan because its a muslem city and she was not happy there.. Then of course it started,,she needed a laptop and iphone for her job and to be able to stay in contact with me. She asked me to buy them for her and also some very expensive perfume. I told her i would get them for her and then bring them with me to Kazan. Then she bvecame very unhappy in Kazan asa she said a guy tried to rape her but she was lucky enough to get away. She changed her mind about me comming to visit her as she felt the city was to dangerous for me. She then said it would be best if she came to visit the UK. But did ask if i could send the laptop and iphone by courier as soon as possible. This is only recent,,i mean in the last few days. I knew she was a scammer just in the last few days but was amazed to see her on this site..Just a shock i guess because if im honest i was getting to like her.
Chat with her most days still on yahoo messenger. Yesterday she decided that i must send her money to buy a ticket to come to London,,I said no but i would buy a ticket for her. At this stage i was sure she was not genuine but played along anyway just to see what would happen next. At the moment she insists that she needs to buy the ticket there because it would help get a visa quickly. What surprised me is that she at no stage asked for a letter of invitation to enter UK which is a requirement. This really gave it away. The amount she asked for was ?1250. This was to include the fee for her application, her ticket,and she needed to have ?500 cash which she needed for immegration on entry to UK to prove she could maintain herself. She seemed to know quite alot about the law when it came to entering UK.
I wonder why!!!. At no stage in an e mail did she ask me for money or material things,,this was always discussed on messenger or during telephone conversations which were almost daily up to today.. She even sent my son a birthday card 3 weeks ago, she started to refer to him as her son!!!!.. Strange thing about the card was that it was posted from Moscow but i really didnt take much notice of this at the time as i thought she was genuine. I never had ant intention of sending money but a trip was being considered. She is a pretty girl,not a stunner by any means,there are much more beutifull girls out there but what drew me to be intrested in her is she has good English..Its actually pretty much fluent spoken and not bad written.
Hugh plus as translation services in places like Russia and Ukraine are sometimes where the scams start. I am aware of 1 such service in Ukraine where they pay girls to chat to guys online via webcams and telephopne and whatever money they scam they split 50/50. Im sure therte are lots of them. So her good English was important
She sent me many pics and 1 video which i will upload if i can. ADVICE.. This girl is a pro,,be carefull because she is so sweet and seems very genuine. But luckily i was cautious.
