I'd say with some certainty that this is yet another scam attempting to prey on the lonely and gullible. If I'm mistaken then I apologise sincerely to the girl but let's face it... there's just too many con-artists out there and too many suckers who need the opportunity to be saved by a site like this.

Here's the original E-mail... I have sent a reply purely to get further information to post on here... which I will do if/when I receive any further e-mails.

Hello friend :)

me of 28 years. I write to you from Russia from city Omsk. I
think, that it will be very interesting to you to know where I have
taken yours e-mail the address. Yours e-mail address has given to
me dating agency of our city Omsk. They have said that you as is
lonely as well as I. They simply have given me your address and have

The reply letter that Lee reveived was almost identical to the one I received back from this girl when I replied to her. She was known to me as Tatiana Kotova, who also appears on this site. Stay clear she is dangerous!

I have received 15 emails and 17 photos from Elena, which includes everything posted above. I can put up the other emails and pictures for comparison if desired. Please advise.

I was willing to pay Elena's costs to emigrate to the UK, sometime next year due to personal finances. Her last email mentioned wanting to spend Christmas with me, which I am unable to do because of my finances. She was always very quick to reply, but I have now been waiting several days for her to respond to my last email.

I thought I'd check her out online to see if I could find any more information about her. As a result of finding this webpage, sadly I no longer expect to hear anything further from Elena.

I consider it a possibility that girls like Elena are unaware their photos and personal details are being used in this way and that the scammer is probably the guy who took the pictures. Either way, the probable object is to get us to send money.

With this in mind I had intended purchasing the plane ticket directly (hopefully non-transferable and only refundable to my card), to be collected at Omsk airport, and then meet the plane at my end. Looks like I saved my money.
