I recieved contact from this so called Irina using all the pictures posted. It did not take long for me to figure out she was a scammer, but I had fun playing along with her scam for a while. It was funny to me that she believed I fell for it. I would tell her I had sent money through western union & would hafe her know the answer to a queston submitted to Western Union. I told Western Union to catch her when she reported to get the money, but they did not comply & Irins finally got tired of my messing wher & quit responding.
A lot of these scammers could be caught if traps like I described were set.
People pulling these scams should me punished if caught to the fullest extent of the law.
