See any resemblence. Unfortunately, I ended my relationship with Marina after about the fifth or sixth letter. Luckily, I found this other scammer and was able to read the next letters I would have gotten. It's uncanny how they think to write the exact same letters (with different names of course) almost 2 years apart.
If anyone knows this girls real name, Please let me know.
By the way, the person trying to scam me, didn't succeed. After the 7th letter, I used another e-mail account and wrote to her pretending to be someone else and she sent that guy letter #1 That's when I knew. I told her I knew, but now I wish I hadn't. It could have been alot of fun screwing with her. (or him, or them)
Awww,I am so glad I found this site! Yes,I have all the above same letters and pictures!
Even after I asked for a pic of her home,etc!!!Kept sending 'form'letters ignoring certain questions!Sheesh,The noive of some people!Ooooh,those Russians........

Well fellas, I've been in her sights also! She does have some nice photos though, Huh?
Marina and her girlfriend Veronika are lovely indeed, but I have all the same pictures that you guys have also. I guess she is quite the enterprising little scam artist!

Is anyone still active with this girl. I may have new information on her. She may actually be borrowing pictures from other sights. Probably not even a girl. May be working in a scam room. Men and women work in them. I doubt any of them actually look like this.
anonymous from Canada
I received a different set of photos, using the same name, different mailing address, and different email addresses for that person.
