Hey guys: Learn the typical Russian dating scam signs:
1. girl's too young (or too cute to be true)
2. scammer contacts you first
3. most of the pics are old and a bit faded (or numbered)
4. very long rambling form letters with strange format
5. writes in English everyday (how does she have time if she's working?...plus most
Russians can't speak a word of English)
6. conveniently doesn't have kids
7. doesn't answer direct questions (sometimes factual mistakes in the letter)
8. falls in love with you by email (quickly or slowly) and wants to visit you first. Real
Russian girls would expect you to come to Russia first, of course. Makes spurious
excuses for you not coming to visit her (too dangerous, blablabla).
9. wants money for a 'visa' and maybe tickets, even though she needs a personal letter
of invitation from you, a copy of your passport, a proof of your residence in your
home country, a completed sponsor's application form (also from you). Without these
documents and the ones she needs to fill in, she won't get a Schengen visa to visit
10. uses a proxy server, SOCKS-server or GPRS Internet to hide his/her location (if you've learned how to check an IP) or the BAT! or other spamming software to send his/her mails.
If some or most of these criteria fit, it's 100% scam.
In that case, you can send him/her the Eddie standardized fuck-you-scam-monkey payoff email. Don't use the cyrillic version if you're using a free mail account, eg hotmail because these aren't compatible with cyrillic. English translation included free of charge.
Пожалуйста, не оскорбляйте мой интеллект. Tы не живете в (название города), ты живете в Yoshktar Ola, преступный город в России. Tы посылаете мне украденные фотографии и копируете письма хуиня. Скоро, Tы будете просить деньги получить визу (невозможный получить без письменного приглашения от меня и билетов, также.)
Поэтому, я сэкономлю тас некоторое время. Пойдите отсюда, чтобы искать честную работу, ты несчастный жулик. Я не имею никакого интереса в ташем cкамерство. Oto'idi, a to jebnu, хохол. Idi na khuy!
Pozhalujsta, ne oskorbl'ajte moj intellekt. Ty ne zhivete v (name of city), ty zhivete v Yoshktar Ola, prestupnyj gorod v Rossii. Ty posylayete mne ukradennyye fotografii i pis'ma kopii khu'in'a. Skoro, ty budete prosit' den'gi poluchit' vizu (nevozmozhnyj poluchit' bez pis'mennogo priglasheniya ot men'a i biletov takzhe.)
Poetomu, ya sekonoml'u tas nekotoroye vrem'a. Pojdite ots'uda, chtoby iskat' chestnuyu rabotu, ty neschastnyj zhulik. Ya ne imeyu interes dl'a vashego skamerstvo. Oto'idi, a to jebnu, khokhol. Idi na khuy!
Please do not insult my intelligence. You don't live in (name of city), you live in Yoshktar Ola, a criminal city in Russia. You send me stolen photos and shit-quality copy letters. Soon, you'll request money to obtain a visa (impossible to obtain without a letter of invitation from me and tickets as well.)
Therefore, I will save you some time. Go from here to seek an honest job, you miserable swindler. I'm not interested in your scam business. Get lost or I'll kick your ass, you greedy moron. Fuck you!

I've had that repeting thing happen to me too.I think it's the site,after hitting add comment the whole thing goes blank and if you keep clicking 'back'that's what you get.I learned not to do it and just try later.
I think 'Irina' may be slightly ahead of 'Elena'but it's close!
