Dating scam from Kazan, Russia - Part 1

I would like to warn fellow males from a scam artist, located in Russia.

Click to see more..
I had a profile posted on an American dating web site and a female from my area answered me. Her letter was a few lines long, in good English and she seemed honest and cute, so I replied.

The letter said she had a read-only trial account and would not be able to receive messages, so she included a yahoo email address. She asked me to write to this yahoo email address. I did this and a few days later her trial account was gone, she explained that she deleted it because she found me. (that is what she answered, when I asked her about it)

This girl claimed to live in Kazan, Tartastan, 26 years old and called herself Barbi.
There was something suspicious about her letters, in particular I always had the
impression that she did not really read mine every time. Sometimes she wrote
personal, matching replies, then sometimes not. her photos of which she sent
about 25 so far, had number like 5.jpg, 6.jpg, 35.jpg etc.

Yesterday I did a query for some phrases of some of her emails and found them
posted on 2 other web sites. Apparently she wrote identical letters to other guys
using different names and different pictures. She or he asked those guys for money,
supposedly for tickets or visa paperwork. I guess I am lucky that she never asked
me for any money. However, I felt fooled when I saw "my" emails had also been
sent in parts to other guys.

For that reason I will post her here letters. I know that parts of these letters
have been posted on 2 other sites, but not all.
I include the full headers in the first email. The sender comes from a russian
dial-up but in another email I sent her a URL to one of my web sites and apparantly
"she" uses some sort of satellite DSL for the downstream, the IP number was
84.xx (to be filled in later).

You did not provide an IP address or proper info to do a complete check. However, your Olga or was reported previously as a scammer. Her E Mail name further provides clues. Here is a following links with her scammer profile:


Remember when communicating with a Russian woman always ask her for copies of her Passport; copies of pictures of her with her parents, brothers and sisters; her address and phone number and those of friends, family and work where she could be reached. You need as much info possible to verify her identity.

If she fail to provide that info and keep giving you a run around, watch your ass, know where you are heading.

A friend of mine got a heap of love letters and dole out $3,000 USD for the alleged Russian woman to visit him. When she did not show up to the US but gave him a 'cock and bull story' he investigated further all to discover that he was writing to a man, who used his sister to talk to him and gave the real person $50.00 to collect the Western Union Money transfer. He was crazy in love until reality kicked him in his ass. His Ego burst like a ballon. So use caution.

The most typical scam is 'If you send me money for airline ticket and visa I can come and see you.' It is almost impossible for these women to get a visa to the US or most other countries. The only real way is for you to apply for a fiancee visa. If you still going to buy a ticket use a credit card and have her pick it up. If she says that will not work, you are being scammed. A sincere women will not come to your country until she meets you in person. Many scammers will also say they have a friend at a travel agency who has connections. Do not believe it. If you do, then you loose!!!

Got a 'beaut', lovely girl but on a closer look her pictures seemed taken from a fashion catalogue. I am still following the hot trail so can't publish the picts here. Must catch her red-headed. :-)
Girl can't write but three words and four sentences. And then only' 'can ask you nothing, want to make trip for you.. give me dollars please..' What trip, fellers? And money for doing what? 'Me want buy presents for mom..' Yes she is a Wilma and I am a Fred grinding his Flintstone.
Where do we go? To heaven or to hell? Or somewhere in between?
Now I understand why she is still unmarried as a beauty, if you can't cement one word after another, it will be hard to get yourself a partner. Well, I can joke away for a while; but I am tired of being scammed again. These girls aren't golddiggers but piranha's. Keep up the good work. :-)
