Other Comments:
This started innocently enough with contact on the dating site Elite Mate. Beware of any contact from women on this site esp if they are from Russia or Africa. The following is the last letter that I recieved from this woman and NO I did not send her any money. It appears that Marina and Elena Zaytseva are working together. Have also added Marina's pass port.

Terry, I so am glad to speak again with you. In me there are many
ideas, and it is a lot of happiness
especially now. Today I am closer to a dinner has returned from
Moscow. In me greater weariness
greater weariness, therefore difficultly should write to you the
letter. It would be desirable to lay
down simply in a bed and strong to sleep. My agency also has written to
me today. What for you have
offended Elena??? Please apologize before it, in fact it my agent.
Elena not scam, you are probable at that
girl which has found the same surname, this concurrence. I once again
ask you that you have apologized
before it. About the main thing. Terry, my interview in embassy of your
country has passed very well. Certainly there
was an excitement, but I tried to struggle with it, also it is many
questions, especially in the second day. I have coped
with it, who serving agency has gone with me, really very much has
helped me. Moscow the big city, that it
necessary to feel well long to get used and its nobleness. Without
serving all this would be difficult, but now the transferred stage,
I think from the further way it is direct to you. I hope everything,
that it will be good here again. Thus it would be desirable to
capture more possibly you, to place hands on your body... Come back to
me more possibly, I wait for your letter.

Your Marina

Thank you for your inquiry.

Please be informed that we do not work with the Russian police. Unfortunately there is very little that one can do to have a scammer arrested as these people are extremely hard to find, and the police do not consider these cases a high priority. In most cases these scammers are not individuals but part of organized crime groups, that may not even be located within Russia. Some people do try to pursue the arrest of scammers but it requires a lot of financial resources on their behalf.

Sadly the most effective method of preventing these kind of scams is to seek out a scam at an early stage by using sites such as ours.

Best regards,

Hello Andy,

Thanks for the quick response. I was going through this website http://www.delphifa..shtml?p=0

where I came across the same girl Marina. Well unfortunately for her I am clever enough to figure out right from her second email that she was a scam. Within a week she started talking about being in love and wanting to meet me. And I just was waiting for her to ask for money to confirm this. I exchanged phone number with her and she did call me last week form a phone booth. Of course we cant be sure if this is a guy who probably asked his lady accomplice to call.
But yes I have this emailtracker software and I have run it on her email.
The email originates from 'Perm in Russia'.

Header Analaysis:
This email contains misdirection (The sender has attempted to hide their IP). The sender claimed to be from but lookups on that name shows it doesn't exist.
So probably as you can see the person has tried to hide IP address as per the report, but it still provide the IP address '' which as perIP address locator shows its near the Moscow region so possibly the eprson might as well be in Moscow., possibly this IP address might belong to a Internet cafe as well. So it might not be that difficult to find for the police.

The fact also is this person has access to lots of photos as it seems. It is also very much possible this guy/girl probably is associated(works) or runs a photo shop and thus has access to so many photos..

I met this person in with the id 'Marinasch' and her email address is

I have also started to contact her with another email address and name... where I asked her why has she given a US based address in her profile on the website she says 'oh the website does not acknowledge my zip code well i can clearly make out that its the wrong answer'.

I am quite certain that its not very difficult to track this down.. But as you mention that police doesnt do much so I guess we are going to let her/him run the show.
In the meantime I can continue to email this person.. and I will also check the other emails from this person and if they have the same ip address' .

Adding to my above post...

I speak german and this person also worte to me in german it was of course bad as she is using probably the online translation stufff.

But what is to be noted here is... that this person is a paid member on

So if this stuff goes to the cops it wont be much difficult to find out who this person is by investigating the payment details from
Well of course he /she could have also used a stolen credit card or maybe even a fiends card .. but it can still lead to the person if this person is operating individually...
