Dating Scam a.k.a. Russian Scam
REPORT N2 (added on April, 8, 2005)
Michael (USA)

I am forwarding an email I received from Marina Makarova (aka: Olga Nikolaeva who is already on
Stop-Scammers.com) asking me to send her money via Western Union to help pay for a tourist visa. I am also attaching some other photo's she sent to me of her. I hope the other photo's can help the authorities ultimately
identify and track down this criminal, that is, if this activity can be done with your web site.
Fortunately I never sent any monies to this person, but I was not so fortunate last spring when I was scammed by a different individual who was by far much more intelligent and much more skilled at pulling this classic
"visa and plane ticket" con. For one thing, she did not exhibit the traditional markings most of these "love swindlers" do. She didn't fall instantly in love with me in just a few letters. In fact she started off extremely hesitant in wanting to start an internet relationship with me, which is probably one of the things she used against me to win over my complete trust.
It was shortly after I sent money to a bogus travel agency she was supposedly making travel arrangements with (but she still never showed up) that I found out the Consulate of the US does not issue visa's to unmarried Russian women - unless they can prove they are already financially secure.
The reason this is done is to prevent human trafficking, but unfortunately I did not know that at the time. If a Russian woman can prove they are already financially secure, then they certainly do not need help with finances for a visa/airplane fare/etc. even if their salary is lower than ours. She swindled me out of nearly $4000.00 which included Western Union finance charges and credit card cash advance fees which I also had to pay.
It's been said, "Fool me once: shame on you. Fool me twice: shame on me."
But when thousands of dollars are involved because someone is constantly being lied to and into believing feelings are mutual and hence the relationship is genuine, even being fooled once like this is more than enough for anyone to take. There is a line from an old Emerson, Lake and Palmer song I think that goes, "We are all not so smart when it comes to affairs of the heart."
The only reason I haven't filed a report on your web site against Elena Antropova is because I have already removed all her phoney "email love messages" and all her pictures she sent to me from my computer. I have copied them to a compact CD however. I've also reported her activities to the US Consulate, the International Web Police, and even the FBI Internet Crimes division last summer. I've kept all her correspondence on a CD just
in case I would ever hear anything from these agencies, but none of those agencies have been helpful to me. Apparently the Russian "Internet-love-crime" is simply not high enough on their list of Internet criminal priorities.
Oh well - thank you at least for hearing my side of the story.

P.S. Here is the original message from Marina Makarova asking me for money for a tourist Visa.

Scam Letters

Emails from Olga Nikolaeva to Garry (USA)
Hello my boyfriend Garry!!! I start to feel big heatin the heart when I think of you. I feel some transition of our attitudes, to stronger. I hope, that you can understand that I want to tell. To understand sense of my words. During our correspondence, I start to understand, what exactly you the man with which I want to create family. Certainly we far apart and us connects only the Internet, but probably in the future we can think of our meeting somehow. I am very much confused, while I write it. Because I do not know your attitude to my feelings of love. I a little even feel silly. But I very much dream, that our attitudes will be mutual.
Also I spoke about you with mum. I have a little told to it about you. She also is very pleased, that I have met you. She very much would not like that I created family with Russian the man. She speaks, that it will be not a life, and prison. Mum has some delight, that I started attitudes from you. But she is afflicted, that we with you very much far apart. We will be finished with thousand kilometers, but it is necessary hopes and we shall trust that a meeting because for the present love there are no obstacles. Mum speaks, that if 2 persons like each other all the same they will be together. I also very much hope for it. That time while we shall not be together, I diligence shall transfer the feelings to you through letters. The most important that you well understood sense. For me it is very important to know, what

Emails from Olga Nikolaeva to Michael (USA)
Hello my Love Michael!!! Today I went to travel agency which the girl from our city which leaved for America used. To me gave the detailed information on arrival in America to you. The tourist agent has told to me, that the best and fastest visa to arrival to America, is the tourist visa. She refers to B2. travel agency helps for registration of the visa, reception of the passport for travel abroad and an obligatory medical board. To issue it without the help of agency it is impossible. They will help me in registration, and also to prepare me for interview in consulate. They have told, that there there will be no problems. There at a travel company familiar which pass clients very quickly. In our life in Russia it is reality everyone do for money and on acquaintance. It seems to me that if to have good familiar and money it is possible though tomorrow to depart on the moon. (Joke).
The tourist visa very convenient because its registration will be about 2-3 weeks. Cost of the visa, the passport, a medical board, and also service of a travel company is 380 dollars. The tourist visa is very simple in circulation. I can remain with you during 6 months. We can solve this term with you together, and then either to prolong the visa or to marry. It is difficult for me to speak about it, but my salary very low, it is necessary for me to keep money for the visa at least about one year. It is possible even more therefore if you can help me with it. That I shall be
