1. Send them a photo to their 'cell phone'. If they cannot view the picture or ask you to send it to their email, they are using VOIP with SMS ability. This means they cannot view your picture and can only view via their email.
2. If they say they own their own business, go to the Secretary of State and do a search to see if they are a registered business owner.
3. Do a reverse phone number lookup. If it comes back as a land line, then chances are they are using the VOIP.
4. If they are widowed or divorced, do a search for an obituary for their spouse (last name is sufficient to bring up all obituaries for state newspapers). You can also do a search for divorce records as they are considered public records.
5. If they tell you they own their own home, go to the real property tax assessor for their area. Search for property in their name. No property in their name -- they just lied to you.
These are just simple tips that I did to catch the scammer. Of course, when I asked about it, they said not everything is online and not to believe the FBI noticies as they lie. In this day and age, everything is online.

Seems like the link to post comments on one of the biggest liars and scammers VALERIA NOVITSKAYA from Nikolaev is no longer working. Be warned guys she will take every dollar she can off you and bleed you dry..
Thanks for the advice Ojas. possibly its my computer. I know somebody else had trouble posting on her page as well. Can find the page ok. But could not post a comment. Possibly it is internet explorer stopping a new post being added. As it comes up with something. I will check again. Thanks for your help..
Guys should also check out social networking site Odnoklassniki.ru to see if the women you are talking to is who she says she is. Many Russian/Ukrainians use it thinking guys in the West do not know about it. But it is worth the time it takes to try and find out some facts about who you are communicating with..
LOL, because, after 6 years ... in the meantime (in total) 'she' was trying it again with me. ^^
New mail, today received ...

I am right now talking to some girl that claims her name is 'Sarah David', and her profile picture happens to be the same exact picture of the girl under the 'Sharon Melissa Kreitinger' section. She claims to be a 'Freelance Model'. She also said that she lived in Minnesota, but right now she is in Nigeria apparently for work. At that point, she started asking me to send her money, because she didn't have enough to get her 'works' done, or else she was pretty much left stranded... I straight up told her I can't fully trust her about that until I meet you in person, and she said that I was 'taking advantage of her weakness', which whatever it was, I wasn't trying to do that. I also forgot to mention that she told me that she lost both her parents when she was 17. But I have trust issues to begin with, and I'm not try to give money to a person I've never met, if they really are who they say they are... But here's the picture, and I had to get to the bottom of it. What is your take on this? Anyone?
It's a scam for sure ! The pic belongs to the porn hottie using the stage name 'Emily's Dream' and you read about her by clicking on the link to her website below.

I'm being asked to but a plane ticket for a girl in Ghana to come here. I suspect a scam, but I'm not sure how I can be scammed if I'm just buying a ticket. If she doesn't get on the plane I'll get reimbursed. Passport and visa are all to be in order. Plus I let her know what I suspected and that if I get a call from the 'police' or 'immagration' or from anyone else telling me there was a problem I wwill not be sending any money and she will be on her own. She said she understood and that there won't be a problem. My question is.....how could I still be scammed if i buy a ticket thru Expedia?
I know her pic has been used for scams. It's well documented. She still insists she is the real person in the pics and all I need to do is buy the ticket. She said she made some bad choices and was forced to scam people and this is her way to get away from them.
It sounds like you're being 'set up' for one of Ghana's worst luck imaginable romance scams !
The scammer’s “bad luck” occurred when they were on their way to the airport to come to the United States to meet you - often getting into car crashes, arrested, mugged, beaten, or hospitalized. Scammers like to build the anticipation of their victims. Once you are excited about the chance to finally meet them in person, that’s when something occurs to prevent them from making the trip. They count on your excitement to finally meet them as an extra incentive to send money. As soon as you send money, however, another situation occurs, which requires you to send more money. Note that any doctor, lawyer, or police officer who contacts you is likely a part of the scam. It's the nastiest of all dating scams, since you're being led down the primrose path toward an emotional cesspool at the bottom of the hill.

Um, You've held more info than you've given us but more importantly,
If you know that the contact is using someone else's image,
why do you waste your time listening to that B.S.?
Believe me... Those online criminals know every way imaginable to use people who listen!
You will lose some cost on the investment of a ticket...
maybe all if they can transfer, they know fraud!
What you need to do is visit the U.S. Customs and Immigration site.
They will show you all that you wonder about in this such case.
To save you effort, believe me. Delete that contact and say nothing.
