Sorry you all got ripped off, but amazing they can still get away with it so easily. And sending $1000 just like that, with no security? What can I say? And why is it always a nice round number and never $992? The nurse/working visa is quite a new angle but they would never just 'give' her a visa unless she had a job to go to in the first place. And if she had a job, her prospective employers would surely stump up for any extra costs and deuct it from her salary.

Tracing the IP addresses, is Yahoo, so it's worthless. For I get TELECOMITALIA, which is strange. Either it's a forged IP or the scammer's in Italy or the Italian national telecom has started a SOCKS proxy server service, which is highly unlikely. Anyway, the scammer's using The Bat! spamming program as well just to put the icing on the cake..

For future reference here are a few Russian dating scam signs, (just a few of the many). If your Boris fulfils several or all of these criteria, it's obviously a scam. A more subtle scammer will take much longer to work you. But most scammers aren't that patient, they're after easy money, plus you have more time to figure out if she's a scammer or not.

# 'girl' writes to you first on a dating site (or an email appears out of nowhere in your mailbox). Real Russian girls are rarely that bold. (unless you're very attractive or rich :). Plus if they're looking for a partner, they generally prefer him to be Russian speaking and live in Russia.
# girl's much too young for you (or too good to be true/looks like a model/porno star)
# girl has some far-fetched excuses for you not visiting her in Russia (criminal city, not Russian custom etc). Actually, the normal way to meet a Russian girl is to visit her city first.
# scammers rarely have children, but all the real Russian women I've ever met did.
# photos are too revealing (can't be a respectable girl)
# most of the pics are old and a little bit faded. Most scam photos have a curiously grainy quality that soon becomes easy to recognise. A serious girl who's looking for a partner, would save up and go to a professional to have a photo set done, and/or borrow a digicam at least (dates should also be on the photos you receive). Russian girls aren't all that poor anymore.
# girl claims not to have a mobile phone. very unlikely. even poor girls have a mobile phone, they're much cheaper than in Europe and a megafon telephone card doesn't cost that much either. On the other hand, not having a landline or a computer is quite common.
# very long rambling/ecstatic form letters with a strange format, punctation, layout in scamlish. (world's worst Babelfish copy)
# writes everyday in English (how does she have time if she's working? + most Russians can hardly speak a word of English). Anyway, what's the point of finding a girl if you can't communicate with her, at least on a basic level?
# doesn't answer direct questions (sometimes factual mistakes in the letter)
# falls in love very quickly. Don't let your ego or loneliness pull the wool over your eyes. You could be an axe murderer for all she knows.
# wants money for a 'visa' and/or 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)....not including the documents that she has to fill in herself. All of these she has to drop off at your national embassy in Moscow WITH PREPAID TICKETS and wait 10 working days. Without these documents, it's impossible for 'her' to get a sponsored Schengen visa. Canada is almost as complicated. And normal tourist visas + costs would set her back 3000+ US dollars. Why should it be so easy for a gorgeous sexy girl just to jump on a plane and fall into bed with you? Be realistic. should ckeck the Canadian embassy website in Moscow and check the visa prices and procedures.
# uses a proxy server to hide his/her location, ie a SOCKS server / GPRS Internet. if you can't trace 'her' IP, it's 100% scam. If she uses gmail, be suspicious too cos u won't be able to trace the IP. Hotmail and yahoo are acceptable if she'll chat with you on messenger, otherwise why does she have a non-cyrillic email account?
