Thanks for the comments about valentina antonova. She is getting more tricky as she is sending her passport image to prove she is real. She also asks for personal information as well. She says she is from mari el, medvedevo in Russia. No request for money yet but I am sure it will come. Be aware of her....

She is so nice and cute, she doesn't ask me for money, but I think soon she will! This is so bad, I was dreaming with her, she send me more than thirty pictures of her, but fortunately I search for her in this web site and I see that she is talking with other people even some of them have been scamming for her

KIWI...very sorry you got scammed.

Pity you didn't find us sooner!

To any other newcomers on this thread. ...PLEASE READ THIS!!!

The vast majority of Russian dating scammers are not women at all, but actually men, mostly students, working in organized cells - known as 'offices' in Russian scamming jargon - in or around Yoshkar Ola, the capital of Mari El republic, sometimes in Chuvashia....occasionally further afield.

Most scammers are VERY lazy and only looking for quick cash money. They use email extractor programs to get your mail addresses (if you don't have a profile on a dating site, that is)...for example:

..and multiple identities with copied form mails and spam programs on automatic reply, very often the BAT!, with which they can personalize small parts of each letter if necessary.

They mostly won't read your mails until after the pay-off - known as the 'money letter'- because they don't have time, ie because they're mailing, and trying to scam, as many guys as they can (economies of scale).....and also because they're semi-literate lowlifes who can't speak much English anyway. They call this initial phase 'zakidka' -- which means 'fill 'em up' in Russian slang. IN OTHER WORDS, you can write almost anything in your replies and they won't notice, the scammers only get interested when they're curious to see if you've taken the bait.

It's virtually guaranteed that the girls in these scam pics aren't directly involved in the scamming because the scammers steal their pics from the internet or pay unsuspecting friends for them, or buy and exchange them on scammer websites. Mostly they steal them. (Once an experienced Russian scammer actually admitted to me that he stole all his pics from and Occasionally they'll use a local girl for a pic set, usually a scammer groupie. Real female accomplices are otherwise only involved either to phone a guy up, for the sake of appearances, or to pick up the loot at Western Union.

And more recently, the majority of Russian scammers have started using proxy servers or IP spoofing to hide their real locations so ALL YOU REALLY NEED TO DO IS TRACE THEIR IP ADDRESS to confirm the scam! (if you haven't worked it out already, of course). Untraceable IP address = scam.

Thank you for posting pics of this girl, who is obviously being used by these scammers, or, at least, her photos are being used. I can also see the photo with the paper has been photoshopped.

But I can also see that you're not from Canada actually...from Russia maybe? You're using an internet translator. Why do you pretend to be located in Canada?
