Name: Svetlana Karsanova
Location: Helsinki, Finland

She supposedly is the Chief Operating Officer of that phone Coal or Wood company in Finland.

As someone posted:

"I called a few of the phone numbers listed in various offices. What a complicated scam. All of them had the same answering machine message. I assume they have the phone forwarded.

My mom used to say, there is a sucker born every day. "

Hey Guys these scammers are getting your e-mail address from Craigs list. Any time you send a response to a date ad they like to post a pic of a good looking girl so you can respose with your e-mail address. I did it once and several days later I got a e-mail pic. from Svetlana from Findland. Be Aware. Honestly when you see a good loking girl on Craigs List there is something wrong with that.

Hi all
Here's the latest Svetlana offering. I think she's about to pull the send me money scam, as well. I have an FBI file on this...

My love,
I’ve got some good news.
I’m flying to Moscow today. I will be there in several hours.
I hope the flight won’t make me too tired. I’m so anxious.
However, I’m very happy because we’re going to meet soon.
This thought makes me much more confident. Are you glad to hear this news?
Soon we will meet each other. I’m moving!
Only your kiss will be able to calm me down.
I’m looking forward to meeting you.
Tell me that you miss me.
I will be the happiest woman on Earth.
I love you. See you soon.
Blowing a kiss to you,
Svetlana

Bros, Svetlana has shown her scam. Not only did I get the email asking for money, which I'll post first, but I also got a followup email saying that she has someone that can deposit the money into my bank, but I need to send her my bank account information. We all knew that there was a scam behind this.

Email asking for money
-----------------------------
My love xxxxx!
I’ve arrived in Moscow. I did my utmost to get all the documents ready
today.
I was so happy when I was flying to Moscow. I have both good and bad
news.
I’ve got the job appointment. I was so happy at first. I got the job
near your city.
I will be able to arrive to you with the flight if you will help.
7:10 am Depart Moscow (DME) Thu 7-Dec Swiss International Air
Lines 1325 / 40
Arrive Los Angeles (LAX) 4:45 pm
However, I have bad news as well.
The money I was given to buy the ticket was stolen out of my purse.
I was given cash to buy the ticket.
Every time our employees visited Russia they bought the tickets for cash.
It’s not really effective to book the ticket In Russia.
Especially when you do it from another country.
There’s always a lot of mess in Russia. It’s not like Europe or
America.
We’ve often come upon this problem before.
Luckily, my passport has been in my jacket pocket. I was so distressed by
it all.
I don’t know what to do. I turned to the company and they said that
I’ve already got the whole sum.They can’t give me no extra money.
I called the subsidiary of the company which I’m supposed to go to.
They understand the situation I’m in.
However, they said that it’s my own problem that I lost the money.
They will repay my expenses as soon as I arrive to the USA.
They will offset my disadvantages as soon as I come to their office.
I have some money left in my jacket. I can pay a part of the price of the
ticket.
I don’t have enough money to pay the whole price of the ticket.
I have 300 now. However, the ticket costs 700. I need 400 usd.
The company representative said that I will have to give the affirmative
reply in two days.
I will have to say that I’m going, otherwise, somebody else will be
appointed for my position.
I turned to everyone I could. No one is able to help me that fast,
though.
I’m asking you for help. You are my last hope. I understand that it’s
a hard decision for you.
Please, understand that it’s hard for me too. I don’t know whom else
to ask.
I’m asking you to lend me the money. I will give it back to you as soon
as I arrive.
I will even give you more. I will give you 600 usd.
I will repay your kindness fully. I can value the help which, I hope, you
will give me.
I will do whatever you want me to for you. I trust you.
I hope that you won’t forsake me being just a step away from our
meeting.
I’m puzzled by the things that have happened. I ask you to help me. I
beg you.
If you love me and wait for our meeting, please, send these money to me
until December 1
Tell me, xxxxx. Will you be able to help me? If yes, do it as soon as
possible.
Please send me money via WesternUnion.
As you know, now I'm in Russia.
Recently I have visited one of russian branches of WesternUnion, and they
have told to me,
that you can send money to Russia, the receiver is Svetlana Korzanova.
So, please go to WesternUnion and transfer the money to Svetlana
Korzanova, Russia.
Any another info to make transfer is not required(this is exact words of
the WU-employee)!
I will be able to pick up money, if I will know the following info about
your money transfer:
1) Exact name of sender.
2) Location(city and state) of sender.
3) Money Transfer Control Number.
4) Exact amount of money.
Without this information, I shall be not capable to receive money.
Your Svetlana
---------------
Then her response email to me not wanting to take the chance of sending her money and not getting paid back.
-----------------------------
My love, I have good news! I can visit you very soon! I have a
female friend and her husband's aunt has got married and went to live
in the USA. My female friend said to her husband's aunt about our
problem and the aunt agreed to help us. But we have one trouble: They
now travel on in Africa and cannot send me money through Western
Union. They can transfer money only to the bank account in USA,
because from Africa it is impossible to send money through Western
Union. Please tell me your bank account's properties so as to let aunt
to send you money:
1) Account number.
2) Routing number.
3) Holder's name.
4) Name of the bank.
Help me in this please. This is an only way for me to come to America.
I don't ask you for money, I just ask you to help me. I can arrive to
you already very soon. I have made all for our meeting. Please make a
small purpose from your side for this.
--------------------------

This person must think that us lonely guys are stupid if we are going to send our banking information to anyone. Talk about the biggest red flag on identity theft. Watch out! How many of you have recieved these emails? Please post so we can see how many guys are getting hit by these scam artists.

Thanks to all who posted info and pictures about Svetlana, Woodro.biz etc on this site. I was worried that I was being scammed but never tried to call anyone and only gave up my Yahoo mail address. She did get my real name, cell number, birthdate and home address. I won't make this mistake with anyone again. I hope my photos do not end up being used to scam someone else. It's sad that we live in a world where people do this sort of thing. I reported everything to the website that was used to initially contact me. Hopefully they will let other potential victims know what is going on. For everyone's sake, I hope wire transfer funds and bank account numbers are what these people are after not data for identity theft. Make sure to contact one of the 3 credit reporting bureaus and place a Fraud Alert on your credit file if your personal information has been compromised

smashingcoalro@yahoo.com from United States  
I have an idea. When I grow up I'd like to be a script kiddie. That's a wanna be computer genius. The website is down, but the scammer is still emailing. If the web host really kicked them, the scammers latest emails would have a different IP address. You can see their IP address in their email. You'll have to look at the full header. In yahoo it is really easy. Use the yahoo mail beta and when you the scam email open, look in the upper right area of the pane. You'll see the word headers click on that and choose full headers. Look for originating IP. Then check your previous mail from this loser with no job.

In other email programs look for Received from: Having trouble? Email me.

Let's post what IP's we have we'll know a little more. Like how many computers are they using? Any thing we can do is one thing out of their control! Nonetheless if the IP's are still the same, they are still at it!

The letters I received from Nadeadzh were from these IP's:

68.142.206.235 (2)
.237
.238 (2)
.239 (2)

I received one personal response when I asked if she was for real. It was the .237 address. What I'd like to know is if this Natalya and Svetlana characters are using the same IP's also.

To be specific from my post immediately above; yes, Svetlana is using the same IP address (235 suffix). My next e-mail I want to e-mail her and ask her how Natalya and Nadeadzh are. I'll just say that she must run into them using the same computer for scamming. But I will wait, so that I won't tip the scammers off
