There must be something to be done about these women or who ever is behind the photoes to be caught and stopped.

Any ideas?

This one approached me out of the blue.

Never solicited her at all, just an e-mail that came into me and I got suspicious

There is also a woman in IOWA that scams too.

CHistie is her name and she is on my space.

Stopping them is unrealistic, like capturing all criminals. We certainly can hinder them, join us and help out, we have plenty of ideas to waste their time, and they hate it #15

Jakked (USA)

Report N19 (added on June, 26, 2008)

She saw my profile somewhere and my medical school education. Contacted me, fell in love in two days, saying as medical professionals we are a perfect match. Said she had a visa to come to U.S. as nurse for nursing shortage. Traveled to Mockba, sent photos that were of St. Petersburg and wrong cities, said they were Mockba. Would not give surname until letter asking for $995 for travel package. Pretty routine and lame scam. She rushed it, asked for money only after seven days of deceit, fraud, and phony photos. Probably never left her home city and pretended to be on the road and arriving in Mockba, etc.

Rainer (USA)

Typical Russian scammer. Falls in love inside of a week/4letters and wants to be with me forever. This time she's posing as a dancer instead of a nurse or teacher. Needs $950.00 to cover her travel costs. Not very smart overall but still pretty fun to string along. I've got letters and photos to send along as well.

Gregg (USA)

I've had some emails from this person. suspected it was a scam since the photos i recieved have been photoshopped by sticking heads on different bodys. The guy who uploaded photos (sorry i never noticed your name) with passports etc. Look at the picture on the passport then the one of her next to her mother and it is the same picture stuck on different sholders. I have another one with the same head but on a body with t shirt on the beach.

Havn't been asked for money yet but getting all the far fetched stuff about how she loves me and thinks of me all the time. Suspected a scam but was not sure of how it worked. Came across this website and was no surprise to see same photos and email address here.
she in not a nurse though, she works for insurance now and stays 700 miles from Moscow. Was her 30th birthday on 9th April so getting the storys of her night out and how she is fighting off the guys cos she wants to be with me.
