I'm surely glad i came across this, i never ever in a million yrs thought that i would be scammed by any body like this, The funny thing is, she never did call, friends and co-workers warned me of scams but never believed them until now. I see these same pictures, these are the same ones that they sent me. I am glad that i didn't send any money, I work hard, and i was saving for this one but now i'll make sure it doesn't happen again. I want to thank you people for advertising this, it helped alot, A big thanks to you. This one is going by the email of and her name they are using is Elena Grovovenko. Here is the information they gave me for her flight,, Information for Elena Grovovenko, service manager Ms. Petr Ivanov This the same person using the names of miss yuliya, at,,,,miss galina,,,and Liana Saljahova and now this one, Elena Grovovenko, THANKS GUYS for the help. Saved me money and time,

Hiya Steve,

Nice to hear from you. i hope you are keeping well? Well, i want to
tell to you a little bit more about me. I use my nickname Catherine on
website, my real name Ekaterina and for friends i'm Kat. i'm 28 years
old, kind thoughtful, good sense of humor (some times a bit crazy). I
work as a teacher of algebra and geometry in the secondary school, i
like my work, because i like to be with kids. i have no kids but i
would like some in the future. i'm single and never been married. Now
I live with my parents. At spare time i like all activity, most of
all: shopping, reading, all types of music, sport (it is especially
play tennis and volleyball, I try to keep very fit), cooking. i like
the outdoors like camping and walking. I have many friends, some time
we spend time together. i'm a bit quiet at first but when i start
getting to know someone i open up more, very rarely get moody i dont
like moodyness. Hope you like my pic and I'd like to get your pic's! I
would really like to know more about you. What do you look for and
find attractive in a woman? How long have you been single? What do you
do in your spare time? I do hope to hear from you again.

Take care


And I replied, and she/he or it replied back :

Hello Steve.

Good evening - hope you are well. I should make a recognition. i live
in Russia now. i really lived some time ago in the UK in Birmingham. I
worked at school on a program of exchange teachers several years ago,
when i finished University on a speciality the teacher of mathematics
and physics. My native country Russia. i live in city Novocheboksarsk,
in an average part of Russia. It's 700 km from Moscow on east. If we
will to wish meeting, I think, it will not be a problem for us,
because i like traveling, its so easy to fly around now. I made travel
as the tourist in Turkey, Egypt and Germany without problems. i
registered my profile on dating site as a citizen UK, i had problem at
registration as the citizen of Russia. I came casual to dating site by
spam message in my email inbox, to me was interesting to try new
experience of dialogue with men. I'm lonely woman and open for any
offers. You can call on my cell phone 7-9613745191. I'm sorry for my
lie in our dialogue. It's absolutely bad way of friendship and is very
a shame to me. I hope, you can to forgive me? I shall wait your
answer. Take care and write soon.


After reading that, I like most of the fella's here got that ummm.. yeah right feeling and googled away... Seems like Kat is an old pro.

She is now going by the name 'POLINA' and is claiming that the following is her address ; Russia, Bakal, Kulevchi, Esenina street 23, flat 35. She is using the email of . She is still using the whole professional dancer routine, you know, living with her mother, brother (Maksim) and her sister. I recieved all of the same photos that are posted on this site and the same emails, almost the exact same with a few minor details changed. She is claiming that (Im looking forward to visiting your beautiful country and I would like to find a man over there who will be interested in meeting me! ) I knew what was going on from the beginning because I had seen a special report on T.V. about the whole Russian bride/dating scam. So, I decided to have a little fun. I researched her profile on several web sites with black lists and it only took about an hour and I was smiling : ) She was everywhere! Differant names and differant cities in Russia. The last info I found was that she is not in Russia but here, right in my back yard, California!!!! Talk about a scammer, she's not even in another country. Anyways, the last letter I recieved from her yesturday was saying that she has started packing for her trip to come to the USA and that she needed the name of the airport closest to me. So I told her the name of the airport and that I cannot wait to see her, that I have everything all set for her to come here. I even told her (she said that she will work as a dance instructor when she gets here) that I already found her a job teaching at a very elite school of performing arts near where I live. I figured that she is a pretty good performer and that she can put her talents to good use !!!
I am patiently waiting for her next letter, maybe I will have to pick her up at the airport soon!
I will keep you all informed as to what happens, I am waiting for her request for money, man I cant wait for that, because I have taken the steps ( I have a family member that is an administrator with our Homeland Security Agency) to put a big damper on this persons parade. Especially if the info. I dug up about her being right here in the USA is accurate. Well, I have to go now. I have included the emails I got, and the pictures, enjoy!!!

2008-10-13, 21:23:36
