Just want to say THANKX God I have found this site! No-one seems to know anything about It in Sweden, only luck I find It! Soo much time I could haved spared knowing this...2 Ghana scammers and 5 russian, all came at match.com and give other E-mailadresses...God blessed you...'meet u at the airport', 'shall I have a sign whith my name on It' haha heard It all...really sick people! ;-)
''No-one seems to know anything about It in Sweden''
With due respect I take strong exception to your statement. Pick just about any Russian scammer thread, go back a page or two, you're bound to meet your compatriot Eddie.
I reiterate a foreign language quote ''It appears in delphi that Sweden is a huge country''
Hope you too will be sharing your thoughts.

Hej.. all you anonymous Swedish guys. Delphifaqs has been around for a couple of years. Try to post as many pics and mails as you can. If you can't find the scammer on a thread, start a new thread using the 'add new scammer' button at the bottom of the page.
For any newbies on the thread, here is SOME GENERAL INFO ABOUT RUSSIAN DATING SCAMMERS....(for West African scammers, you only need one tip...there are NO cute white girls living in West african countries)
If several or more of these criteria apply to your Boris (the beautiful Russian 'girl' that is supposedly writing to you), resist the temptation to help 'the poor girl' by sending her money. You're really writing to a sleazy guy sitting in a smoky room in Yoshtar Ola, Mari-El Republic, with a bunch of other sleazy guys spamming indiscriminately on laptops .
# 'girl' writes to you first on a dating site...especially a free one (or an email appears out of nowhere in your mailbox). Real Russian girls are rarely so bold as to write to you first. (unless you're obviously very attractive or rich :))). Plus if they're looking for a partner, they generally prefer him to be Russian speaking and live in Russia. Much more convenient!
# girl's much too young for you (or too good to be true/looks like a model/porno star)....although I have noticed a recent tendency for some scammers to use photos of slightly 'less attractive' girls.
# girl has some far-fetched excuses for you not visiting her in Russia (criminal city, not the Russian custom, terrorism, blablabla). ALL BULLSHIT!! Actually, the normal way to meet a Russian girl is to visit her in her city first!
# scammers rarely have children, but most of the real Russian women I've ever met on the internet did (except in Moscow/St Petersburg).
# photos are too revealing (can't be a respectable girl). Respectability is very important to most Russian women (ecspt in Moscow/St Petersburg).
# most of the pics are old and a little bit faded with a curiously grainy quality that soon becomes easy to recognise (overuse?). A serious girl who's looking for a partner, would save up and go to a professional to have a photo set done, and/or borrow a digicam at least (dates should also be on the photos you receive). My fiancée did. Russian girls aren't all that poor anymore.
# girl claims not to have a mobile phone. Very unlikely!!! fer f***'s sake.....do you know a single girl without a mobile phone? Even poor Russian girls can't do without one, they're much cheaper than in Europe and a Megafon telephone card doesn't cost that much either. You should be able to phone her when you want. On the other hand, not having a landline or a computer is quite common.
# very long rambling/ecstatic form letters with a strange format, punctation and layout written in scamlish. (world's worst Babelfish copy)
# writes everyday in English (how does she have time if she's working? + most Russians outside Moscow can hardly speak a word of English). Anyway, what's the point of finding a girl if you can't communicate with her, at least on a basic level?
# doesn't answer direct questions (sometimes factual mistakes in the letter)
# falls in 'love' very quickly. Don't let your ego or loneliness pull the wool over your eyes. She doesn't know you. You could be an axe murderer for all she knows.
# uses a proxy server to hide his/her location, ie a SOCKS server / GPRS Internet. if you can't trace 'her' IP, it's 100% scam. If she uses gmail, be suspicious too cos you won't be able to trace the IP. Hotmail and yahoo are acceptable if she'll chat with you on Messenger, otherwise why does she have a non-cyrillic email account?
MOST IMPORTANT...if you get this far:
# wants money for a 'visa' and/or maybe tickets, but IT'S VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR A SINGLE RUSSIAN GIRL TO GET A TOURIST VISA TO A WESTERN COUNTRY! She can get a sponsored visa with your help, but then she needs a personal letter of invitation from you, a copy of your passport, a proof of your residence in your home country, a completed sponsor's application form (also from you)....not including the documents that she has to fill in herself. All of these she has to drop off at your national embassy in Moscow WITH PREPAID TICKETS and wait 10 working days. These are the rules for the Schengen countries, and USA and Canada are almost as complicated. Anyway, a normal tourist visa + travel costs + hotel rooms would set her back 2000+ US dollars for a trip to the US. She should be asking you for a lot of money! Why should it be so easy for a gorgeous sexy girl just to jump on a plane and fall into bed with you? Be realistic.
NB...you should check your national embassy website in Moscow for visa prices and procedures.
There are a few scammers that are more patient and professional. There are even a few real girls scamming, and professional gold-diggers. One or two (mostly in the Ukraine) are not even afraid to use their true identities. These scammers are harder to spot.
But a ground rule is: if you are looking for a Russian wife/partner, you must be prepared to travel to Russia to meet her. And if she turns out to be a professional gold-digger, which has never happened to me personally or anyone I know, you should try to be philosophical and treat it as an exotic trip to a foreign country, have fun anyway, and try not to waste too much money on her.
There are actually hundreds of perfectly nice Russian girls in Russia but you have to go and get them. Just don't expect not to pay.
Hi do you know a girl living in Accra Ghana with the name Linda Boatemaa? Her mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org or Linda1_care@yahoo.com. She also works with an agent named George Owusu. This image was also posted here: Dating scammer Nancy Milman from Accra, Ghana
it seems that most of the photos of black women are from the americas and not africa..also if u notice how most are dressed, you will see they are dressed in the latest fashions or somewhat latest,,,most african women i have met dress in traditional dress that live in west africa countries and where it proudly....

You are correct there is definately a difference in clothing worn by traditional West African women and those women from Europe or America.
Whether Black or White the pictures the pictures used by these scammer are stolen usually from internet sites. Black or White, most women with model quality looks do not need to use a dating service! Our big egos, thinking these hot young women want fat middle aged men get us into trouble. Would a 20 year old in your hometown want to be with a 55 year old?
