Translation Scam. Reported scammer on FreePersoanls, profile removed.
REPORT N2 (added on January, 11, 2010)

HI,
I'd like to reposrt that woman as a scammer. I was corresponding with her since Dec 15th 2009. I had found her profile on web site freepersonals.
I think she is very sophisticated scammer. Right from the beginning of our correspondence she described me her life story, difficulties with her ex-partner who had left her,little baby,work, study and basically hardship. She was sending me lovely pictures of her and family, i.e. baby in the church during a holy Mass, her mum, auntie,uncle, her dogs etc. Everything seemed to be so realistic. The long responses to my emails were sent so quickly,after a 2 days or so, which was quite weird to me, but anyway I still believed that she's real woman with good intentions, looking for her man.
Suddenly after about 1 week later, she sent me an email saying that she needed to use translation agency and there's a credit, that she was worse off every month because of all her tax, her rent which had gone up and was unpaid, the bills ond so on.
Her daughter Kristina had only beans on for dinner practically every night, nothing good or fun.
After the last her letter I suddenly received an email from Valeria from Imperial Translations (phone: +380668581420) who introduced himself or herself (not sure if it's a woman or man) as a representative acting on behalf of Marina.
The email was written in quite clever wait, stating that Imperial Translations agency wants to know if I potentially could her Marina due to her significant problems with her finances, and Marina's desperate situation.
I asked then about the address of that agency, but up till now I have not received any answer.
Kind regards

Yes guys, Marina is still out there operating, it's business as usual for her. I received an email from her telling me that she was using the services of the translator. I then began to wonder why, when it would have cost far less to pay a monthly subscription to a dating site with onboard translator is she using this method of communication as professional translators come at a far greater price.
Yes, I know all about poor little Kristina also and have photographs if anyone is interested. I was also given the story about her education being interrupted because she was left with a bun in the oven after her boyfriend walked out on her.
She said that she was given my email address by a dating site. There have been others who have said this also, one told me that she had to pay a small fee for it.
Poor girl, she really knows how to suck blood. While I'm here, a message for you stupid Marina... you don't get blood from a stone!
I have just received an email from the so called translator's office this morning asking for assistance on her behalf, I can forward a copy if requested. It does not look much, more like a document drafted using a simple word processing package, I would have thought a girl with her intelligence would at least have made an effort, maybe she just thinks we are all stupid.
I have a number of them writing to me now, one I reported to the Internet Crime Complaint Center but she still kept coming back until she finally realised that it was all in vain. I had an email from her not long ago telling me that her mother had a heart attack and required urgent medical attention and that she could not afford to pay for it. Poor woman she's probably dead now because of me, I feel so bad! She wanted to come and stay with me and requested quite a substantial amount of money for flights, visa and other documents she would require to make the journey. She suggested I transfer the funds via Western Union, I refused but it did not deter her, she then went on to tell me that she had contacted the Travel Agents and they were prepared to accept a payment made to them, but being the type of guy I am I put her on the spot when I asked if they had a website and a business registration number. She said that they did not have a website but the next day she emailed me providing me with a link to one but still no registration number.
Yes I've had them all but the more you work with them the more you get to know how they operate, I suppose it's a bit like playing mind games, their intellect, or lack of it, against yours. You're ok if you don't send them money and it can also be fun if you have nothing else to do with your spare time, but just be careful.
I have found from experience that most of them tell you exactly what you would like to hear. Then after a couple of weeks it's down to business because you have so much in common, or should I say so much in your bank account? They certainly don't believe in hanging around!

Hi,

It’s Marina from Ukraine. I hope you remember me from freepersonals.ru. I am pleased with the chance to have this personal communication with you.

I want to write you more about myself. I am a girl of twenty nine.
When I look at myself in the mirror I see a blond girl with long straight hair, big eyes and slander figure. As to my appearance I'm rather tall and slim. I have never thought I'm a beauty I am an ordinary girl, very simple and easy going. I like staying alone and sometimes I retire into my shell… But still my heart is longing for love and I believe that I am on my way to find it…

I am a lonely mother of a wonderful child Kristina (she is 30 months now) and I hope you love kinds and ready for serious relations. I know this is truly great responsibility but big happiness of love and unity with someone special…. It is real pleasure to know that you are the whole world for the child but each kid needs family, my father left my mom when

Hi, How are you?
I hope you remember our beginning of the communication on cute only. I believe that we can continue the communication now in this more personal matter and share sweet closeness with you.
So now a bit about myself. I am twenty nine and I live in Ukraine. I grow a 2 and a half years daughter on my own as her father disappeared from my life as soon as i discovered being pregnant, I am against the children`s legal murder cold abortion so I decided to grow my child on my own. It is not easy to be a lonely parent here but i try to survive. Still I need love, tenderness and care in my life. Of coarse, Kristina`s smile is a big gift for me but a kiss of beloved man, his tenderness and support is what I miss these days....
I know that you might be scared off with my words, perhaps you need just a friend or lonely woman, I will understand but i want you to know the situation from the very beginning so you can make the choice.
I enclose some pics
