REPORT N1 (added on November, 9, 2010)
David (Jamaica)

I met Swetlana on a Dating Website, she is very good with her deception. She answers questions directly. I believe she takes the time to develop a very personal relationship with her victims.This I believe speaks to the mastery of her art. I don't see her picture posted anywhere as yet, please be ware.

REPORT N3 (added on August, 7, 2012)
Brett (Australia)

Irina initiated contact on the pof dating site and after the initial message asked for my email and for the past seven weeks we have communicated daily and she has sent numerous photos that looked model type.
It wasn't until the last email that there was the indirect asking for money as apparently she was having issues getting money.
A lot of the letters appeared scripted and had the same words or phrases which made me suspicious.
I then asked her a bunch of questions after finding your site and there has been no response for the past two days which is strange as she often sent an email asking y no email.
She said she had no family except for an aunt in Irkutsk.
REPORT N4 (added on August, 13, 2012)
Andrew (England)

First contacted her on dating website, Cheekylovers. She asked me to send her my e mail address and we corresponded almost daily for 3 weeks. At first she seemed very genuine and sent highly personalised e mails. However warning bells started ringing when she avoided certain questions and repeatedly found excuses for avoiding talking on the phone or using instant chat features on the internet. She said she was using an internet cafe to send her e mails, the computers there would not support instant chat or Skype and the village where she lived had few phones and no mobile network. More warning bells rang when she became insistent that she needed to come and visit me. She never actually asked for any money but I''m sure that would have followed if I had not found her on this site and outed her.
Beware she is very convincing and obviously invests alot of time in her communications.
