REPORT N1 (added on November, 30, 2011)

She is very good with a mother and friends. She will send pictures of her friend's child. But uses the old trick about knowing someone at a travel agency. They claim to handle all visa and ticket information. Beware, they are good..
REPORT N2 (added on May, 12, 2020)
Jeff (Netherlands)

I met a woman named Elena Mihalchienkova through the Mingle2 dating site and we communicated for about 3 weeks. On the site, she claimed to be living in Seversk, Russia, but hoped to be moving to Germany soon for a new job with a pharmaceutical company; her stated age was 29. Immediately, she asked to communicate only through email (selionella@gmail.com).
She sent 11 photos, and we exchanged 11 long letters. In her letters, she professed to be single, never married, and living alone in a rented flat. Her father was an alcoholic who abandoned her when she was small, and her mother was living alone in a nearby village. She had no siblings and professed to be looking for a serious truthful relationship (consisting of "individuality, diligence, softness of character, nobleness and small sense of humour") leading to marriage and family. Her last boyfriend cheated on her, so she found it hard to trust men. She claimed to work in a supermarket, but also did accounting work on the side for extra money as her college degree was in accounting. She wrote long letters, answered all my questions, and sent photos of her friends, so initially disarmed me by her care and attention to detail, but things did not add up the longer we talked.
For example, although she was excited to be getting a new job in Germany, she could not remember the name of the company she would be working for. She wanted to hear my voice, but claimed not only that her cell phone had been stolen, but also that the telephone system did not work in her part of town; at best, she offered to call me from the post office, but never did. She claimed she could speak English well, but had to use an online translator to type in Russian and translate messages into English. She did not have a computer at home, but used her computer at work. Finally, one of her email addresses used the name "Helen Markova"; when I asked her about that, she said Helen was a variant of Elena, and she did not want to use a real surname in her email address.
To test her story, I volunteered to mail her a box of chocolates so I could confirm her address. She gave me her address, but the package was eventually returned as undeliverable. She suddenly stopped writing after I asked her if my box had arrived, as by then she knew the address she had given me was fake. Follow-up messages to her went unanswered, so she broke my heart and seems to be a scammer.

Emails from Elena Onycheva to Jeff (Netherlands)
I am glad to see your message. I waited for your answer but because of a problems on work I couldn't answer to you faster. I am a little confused by this situation, because I never talked in Internet before... And it is my first experience! Anyway I am glad to get your message and I would like to introduce myself to you )
So, my name is Elena, and I am from Russia, but not for long time. That's why you could find in my profile that I am from Germany. I plan to go there for work in nearest time. My friend, she work in Berlin, and she helped me to find a job in Hessen, it's some pharm company... so I am waiting for their response, I sit on my suitcases, and I already feel me like a german )))
But it is not important!
I think you ask yourself why I write you, we are so far from each other, and I think it is nice question. I think, we are so far from each other, and it can help us to be absolutely opened and talk and to get a best friendship. And may be more, who know ) I am not sure, is it a big problem for you, I mean a distance. Because there are a lot of kilometers between us... But ok. I will leave it for you, to choose. Ok?!
So I wish to begin our meeting, and here there are a little about me what I wished to tell you, I don't wish to load you very much with my letter, so I will try to be short. And so! I am 29 years old. But I always hear that I look's like 4-6 years younger than my years ) I won't be angry if you share this opinio
