Is this Russian girl scamming me? How to recognize scammers

Are you an American or Western European man exchanging emails with a girl from Russia? I was contacted by a girl who turned out to be a scammer. Reader Derrick put together some great advice how to detect scammers.
I only have one advice (#8) to add: If a Russian girl tells you that she will get a visa to the USA instead of inviting you, that is - under the current immigration law - a SURE sign that SHE LIES.

Here is the process how a Russian woman can come to the USA:

If she is considered a relatively young/ attractive woman (let's say under 40, hope I don't hurt anyone's feelings here), then there is virtually NO CHANCE THAT SHE GETS A TOURIST VISA TO THE USA. First the Russian Federation will not allow her to leave the country. Then, even if she was getting out, the USA will deny her admission. The reasoning is that she is considered a risk. How could she not be a risk? If she had family in Russia (husband, children) or a valuable business or real estate. Most likely the woman who writes you will be considered a risk. The only way for her to get a visa into the USA is this procedure:

  1. the foreign man visits her in her native area in Russia
  2. they get engaged during such a visit - take photos of the 2 of you together
  3. he flies back and applies for a K-1 visa. A K-1 visa is also known as Fiancee visa, used for marriage-based immigration
  4. once the K1 visa is granted, the girl can enter the USA and stay there for 3 months. By the end of these 3 months you HAVE to GET MARRIED or the girl has to go back home.
  5. if you get married, the girl gets a greencard and can work
  6. after 3 years of marriage, the girl can apply for a US citizenship. That's when they interview you to find out if it's a real marriage. She also has to answer some questions about US history, political system, etc etc.


Here are Derrick's tricks (1-7) that he uses immediately from the start:
  1. GOOGLE or websearch the first part of the scammers first emails and/or 'profile'. SEE HOW MANY OTHER SITES their listed on! RECORD THOSE SITES FOR FUTURE REFERENCE. THAT alone can give you a good idea IF your dealing with a scammer OR not.
  2. GOOGLE or websearch the return email address. See how many 'hits' come from that search and also note all the sites. (many times you'll see the email end up on a 'scammers list') IF YOU FIND THE EMAIL ADDRESS LISTED ON A SCAMMER LIST - don't bother further, your only fooling yourself - no matter what excuse they might give you.
  3. FROM THE START - ASK FOR SPECIFIC INFOMATION! A full name, address, phone number - something. OFFER THE SAME in exchange, except make it a P.O. box and a CELL PHONE rental card that will protect your identity. If you see your requests ignored, which you usually will, don't waste your time further.
  4. ALWAYS ASK SPECIFIC QUESTIONS that would REQUIRE A SPECIFIC ANSWER outside the use of FORM LETTERS. IF YOU FIND your questions go unaddress in your reply emails from 'them/her' - YOUR DEALING WITH A SCAMMER. Again, don't bother further.
  5. DON'T WAIT 6 MONTHS to offer to talk with the PROSPECT by phone! WHAT A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME! IF THERE IS CHEMISTRY OR APPEARS 'INTEREST' BETWEEN THE TWO OF YOU - then sieze the opportunity. ARRANGE A PHONE CALL! International rates to Russia and most places are reasonably cheap. IF YOU GET THE REPLY ' I'M SO POOR I DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO A PHONE' - drop the whole thing, your only wasting your time and WILL BE SCAMMED at some point in the future.
  6. PHOTO FLOOD! IF IT/SHE/HIM/THEM - LOOK TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE - THEN IT PROBABLY IS! MOST IF NOT ALL OF THE SCAMMES USE PHOTOS OF MODELS IN THEIR HOME COUNTRIES TO POSE ON THE NET IN THEIR PROFILE(s)! Consider this - IF THEY LOOK like a MODEL then tell you they're so poor they don't have access to a phone - YOUR BEING SCAMMED!

    ASK FOR A SPECIAL PHOTO TO BE TAKEN. IF YOU SENT YOURS, HAVE THEM TAKE A PHOTO SHOWING THEM HOLDING UP YOUR PHOTO IN THE PICTURE! That is a good 'scammer filter' - even the most adept with Photoshop will easily be spoted.

    BETTER STILL - ASK THEM TO TAKE A PHOTO THAT SHOWS THEM HOLDING A CURRENT NEWPAPER OF YOUR CHOICE OR THEIR COUNTRY, WITH A RESOLUTION THAT YOU CAN READ THE DATE! NOT some low grade - grainy photo! FEW WILL EVER DO THAT.

    AT THE LEAST - ASK THEM FOR A PHOTO of them wearing a specific combination of clothes and/or colors - something different then the usual 'model clothing' - most use to send out. OR AN OBJECT - TOASTER, ELECTRIC CLOCK, BY A COUCH, IN A ROCKING CHAIR something that would be very hard to use PHOTOSHOP to just PUT in another FILE PHOTO.

    *** IF this person is real or sincere, they won't mind doing this for you! ALSO - offer to do the same for their comfort also - that is only fair.
  7. IF THINGS GET SERIOUS - then ASK THEM TO DELETE ALL THEIR OTHER WEB PROFILE POSTS! CHECK ON THE ONES YOU NOTED EARLIER! Again, IF THEIR SINCERE - they will - happily as your their DREAM and future!
  8. If she talks about getting a visa or that she needs money to get a travel visa to the USA, she lies. See the proper course of action described at the top.

Now, she started to showing her tail :). The clue this B.S. is the word 'Trust'. All she suddenly she ask me to trust her within three emails. What a dick or B..ch.

Sample email:


Good day Buster! Glad to write to you! How are you? And as for me, I very good!
Thank you for the answer. It was interesting for me to get to know new about yourself!
Your are interesting person. I opened for myself that the corresponding can so fascinating!
1)Buster I saw yours e-mail on one of sites of acquaintances after it I have decided to write to you the letter.
I am very glad, that I have an opportunity to write to you letters.
2) You have subscribed in last letter as Buster here therefore I name you so.
3) Is not present did not see.
I like to tell you Buster about myself.
I want to say what is important for me in my life, what is valuable for me.
I think that it is the most important when you are loved by someone. Love must be in the life of man. It is impossible to survive in this world without love. I mean the love not only of beloved man, I am talking about love of close people, people who are around you, who take care of you, who worry about you. It is so great to have such people in the life. Unfortunately, I can say that I have no such people in my life, but certainly I have good friends and relatives, who help me to live with their warmth and love I am so thankful to them for it!
I don't know what I would do without them and their love and care, but it is necessary to say that I am alone... I go through the life alone, I overcome my troubles and problems myself. My close people have their own difficulties and I don't want to load them with my problems. I love them and I want to protect them from superfluous excitements. Buster please tell me about your close people.
I have a very fine friend Valentina, who are always with me: in the trouble and in the joy! I have a friendship with her since student's times. Our common friend (I didn't see this friend for a lot of time) acquainted us. And I am so happy for that. She is wonderful person and very fine friend. I like to spend time with her, to talk about everything with her.
She good, clever and interesting interlocutor. We tell everything what is going on in life to each other. I have no secrets from her. And it would be very important for me to tell her about you and our correspondence. What do you think of it? Buster are you not against?
I will send you pic with my friend. And you will be able to imagine how my friend looks.
The main thing in our relationships is the trust. I think it is the base of any relationships. That is why I value the honesty and the openness in people. Please be honest with me and trust me. You Buster can believe me, because I hate the lie in any its form.
I will never deceive you Buster. I hope you really will trust me! I don't understand the sense of lie, in fact, the truth will be found out sooner or later.
I am writing to you about it because in the beginning of our correspondence and our relationships I want the trust will be between us.
I hope you will be sincere, open and honest with me! I so want to know your opinion of my words. I will wait for your answer. Bye-bye! With the best regards Nadezhda.

Suddently she changed her email:

New email address: nadennka@gmail.com

Here is another one of Christmas which I didn't have to the to B.S. with her :

Hi my dear Buster!!! I hope, that at you all is good, to that I very much worry when I do not receive from you the letter and I hope, that having received this letter you will soon write to me the answer. I know, that you will soon have Christmas and it is fine, to that it is a fine holiday which is necessary for celebrating in a circle of family. My dear TL I wish to tell to you, that we on former do not have snow and I think, that this New year and Christmas in Russia will be without a snow and it is sad. All these days I worked much, but also had some pleasure. When I worked, I have suggested my small patients to write the letter to the Grandfather Frost (at you he refers to Santa Klaus) and I have told to children that they have written the desire and children have written all, that wish to recover quickly. All my fellow workers and I shall do to these children gifts both it I shall be sweets and I shall be very glad to see their smiles. Our New year will be on December, 31st and it is very joyful holiday for all children and adults, to that everyone wait for gifts and set of smiles. I want, that at you Buster all was good in Christmas. I shall be glad to that if I bring happiness during your life. On this I shall finish the letter and I am very glad, that I can write to you Buster letters and consequently I ask you do so that I also had a smile when I shall see your letter. I shall wait very much for your letter. Sincerely your Nadezhda.

Hi,its me!!!




It was very nice to recive your email, i am so happy that you email me. Sorry for

not emaileing you sooner, there was a internet problems.
I am very happy to find you in a dating site, i hope you are not sad that i choose

you.
My name is Olesia.

Why I choose you?

I found you at the site by chance.
I don't know how to use the site, so I found you by chance and wrote you. And you

emailed me back.
I didn't know what will happen, I didn't know if you write me or not.
But I am glad that we met each other.

I've never tried to find someone in Internet but
soon I will come to your country to work there, so I will have a work
visa and a permission to work. My friend worked in the USA somewhere near
Fort Lauderdale two years ago. She worked in amusement park from 11 am till
6 pm
and from 7 pm till 3 am she worked in a bar. Of course she was always tired
but she made very good money! I think I can do it too! Now she is in
Europe, working for 3 months. She wrote me she liked to work in the USA better!
I want to find a man who can tell me about the life over there and maybe
of course something more then just a friend!!! I don't have a boyfriend so I'm

open and ready for new adventures!!!
I'm in Russia now, but soon I will leave Russia to make my trip so you can
forget about our distance. I've never been abroad, only in the South of Russia,

the Black Sea , Sochi (where will be Olympic Games 2014.). I like warm climate ))


According to my visa I can work in your country for 3 months, I can
prolong it to 6 months if I want. After 6 months staying over there I
can go home or try to get a green card.
I think my level of English is not so bad, but still it is very
simple. I can't read philosophy books in English or business books)))
Anyway I want to improve my English while staying over there. I write
and speak English by myself. We have
Discovery channel here in English (my friend has cable TV, so I come
to watch it!). I like this channel so much! Very interesting!
i'm sending two pics, I hope you will like them. I will send more next
time. I live in small town here in Russia , and I decided to find someone by
Internet not to be alone when I make my trip. The life is different in
every country and I think it's hard to live there when you don't know
anybody.

I can do some simple job as a waitress, or to work in some shop. And
later when I improve my English I want to find a better job!
I will start my trip from Moscow , I will go there to pass English
tests and have an interview. I think everything will be OK!
Working program helps me to get the visa, permission for work and
all travel documents and they will help me to get job. It's a special
program for young people who is not lazy and make some money.
Also they can settle me with another girls from Russia and Brazil who
came to work there too, it's very cheap.

Here I can earn only about 100-150$ a month to work from mornig till
late evening (my city is really small).
I think I can change my life and see many wonderful things and just
different life. I am full of plans and different dreams.
I am sure you will be not disappointed to meet me in real life!!!
I don't have a special plan or something like that for a new
relationship, I'm open to everything! I don't want to be an abuse for
you, if you don't want me as your woman, we can be just friends!
But I hope you'll like me and my photos!
I had a boyfriend, but it was nothing serious and we broke up one year
ago because he moved to Murmansk .

OK, I will finish this email... I don't know what else I could write
you in my first email. Your questions are welcomed! Please reply to me
even if you don't like me, because you are the only man I am
responding to. If you don't like me I will continue my search. I hope
so much to receive your answer!!!
I hope we can have a nice communication by emails so I will know
somebody is waiting for me over there! Not so long time to wait for me,
really!!!

I hope you are my soulmate and we can match each other!
Next time I can answer your questions if you have some and tell you
about my family, send you the pics of my family, also more of my
photos!!!
Tell me about yourself and the place where you live! And send me
photos! Sorry for being too talkative!!!
Please write me back here, I write you from my private email address
now.


Olesia



She 1st contacted me on Singles,com as : slendidaz [slenty28@yahoo.com] She ask me to e-mail her back at the yahoo address that I provided.

Here's the 2nd e-mail that she or he[???] sent me ;

Jamie ,hello my dear!!!

Thanks for your reply so much!!! Sorry for not emailing you sooner,i was busy to

much.
I hope soon I will be able to
come to your area and we will meet each other!
This time I will write you more about myself. I think you should know
more about my life and my hobbies so you will know if we have any
common interests.
So you already know my first name is Olesia. My last name is Dawidowa .
I'm 28 years old, not that young I
suppose? My birthday is on 20 of August. I'm 168 cm tall (5.6.) and 51 kg
weight (about 120 pounds , I'm not sure how much it is in pound but I'm
not fat which you can see from my photos!).
I don't know exactly my bust-waist-hips measurements, I
don't have a reason to measure it because I think it's OK and my body
is proportionate )) I take care of my body, I do aerobics three times
a week and two times a week I go to a swimming pool.
i have an older sister. She is 31 years old now.
She recently divorced and she has 4 years old daughter. Her husband
cheated on her.

We live with our parents in 3 room apartment.
The name of my city is Sajansk , it's near Irkutsk city. Sajansk is
quite small city unlike Irkutsk which is a large city, the main city in our
district.
Have you ever heard about the lake Baykal? It's near Irkutsk ! It's the
deepest and cleanest lake
in the whole world. It's very beautiful!
I graduated from Irkutsk Humanitarian University 3 years ago,
the dance faculty. Yes, we have such faculty in Humanitarian
University! So I'm a professional dancer. I don't want to have a
dancer's career because I will have not much time for my private life
and for relationship with a man. I work as a dance teacher, I am teaching
children from 12 to 17 years how to dance! Also I have a certificate
of fitness instructor, this is my another hobby. So it would be
perfect if later I can find a work as a fitness instructor or teacher of
dances!!! I think it's a very good job for a woman, I'm always in a
good shape and I keep myself not that busy!
Do you know how to dance? If not I can teach you!
I can dance many different styles.
When I come to your city I will work as a waitress in a restaurant. I
would like to work as a
dance teacher but I think you understand it's not possible to arrange
such work by Internet because they want to see the level of my dancing.
Anyway I will try to find this kind of work when I come over there. Or maybe
not a dancer but aerobic( fitness) instructor, I think it's also very good job.
I'm sending few photos for you today! I hope you are not tired to look
at my photos?
First pic was taken in Sochi (the Black Sea ) last summer. The

rest pic just a home pic.

In winter I like skiing, although we have cold winters... our summers

are warm usually.

Mom is much younger then my father and they are very happy together. My

mother is a teacher of music in the school. I can play piano also, she

tought me to play piano. I finished music school and I still play

piano about once a week. My father is retired engineer.

I cannot say I enjoy one particular type of music. It might sound strange for you

but
I can listen to almost everything. The list is endless actually. But anyway,

there are a couple of things I have always enjoyed to listen to.

They are Enigma and Deep Forest. I adore their music. It is so sensual and

helps relax a lot. I also like classic music, jazz, rock, lounge.

I want to try how to ride a motorcycle someday! I've never tried it!

By the way, do you have an International Airport in your city?

Please write me the name and the code of it.

Or write me the name of the nearest airport to you.

I write you my emails from Internet cafe, I don't have my own computer.

If you want I can call you when I'm in Moscow , it would be nice to

talk to you. I will be really happy to call you from Moscow . Now I'm

not at home often and if you call me my father will pick up the phone

and he can't speak any English and he will be shocked to hear the

English speech. I didn't tell him about you but I'm going to

tell him this week, I will write you about his thoughts on this topic!

I suppose in few days I will leave for Moscow and start my trip!

There is no any messenger in this Cafe so we can only keep emailing

each other. I hope you are not getting bored to read my emails?

My address here is Russia , Sajansk ,Lenina 7 street, flat 3.

So now you know who I am....

I just can tell you that I enjoy life and I try to live to the

fullest, I like to try new things. I'm not that smart.. I was not that

good in mathematics, physics, biology and so on! But I'm very tender,

caring,

artistic, faithful, decent person.

Sometimes I can be not well organized, I think everybody had it's own

minuses and pluses.

I don't look for any special qualities in a man. I just hope he will be

faithful to me and ready to create a happy family with me and I will

do everything to make him happy. I'm looking for a soulmate!

I just want to add few things...

My mind is always in a mess when I write you because

it's hard to write everything to somebody who is so far away. I don't

remember if I wrote last time I've never been married, don't have

kids but I love them and they love me! I wrote you I teach children

how to dance and I know how to understand their wishes and worries.

I don't smoke, drink occasionally.

And I want to tell you that I always wanted to find an older man.

Why? I have two answers..

First, I think older men are much more serious and they can take

care of me, they are more experienced in life and can teach me many

things. 'The older the violin, the sweeter the music' I believe in

it...

I think I'm not that young already but I

don't have much experience in life and I want to have someone who has

more experience in life then me.

Second... maybe I'm not right about it... but I want to be honest

I've always had such worry... if I marry a man nearly my age...

and after some years I will become not that young and beautiful... I

think it's more hard for a woman to be attractive then for a man...

and he will find a younger mistress and I will become very miserable.

I don't want my man to be unfaithful. I know I can be faithful to my

man and I will never cheat on him.

But this is just my worries. This is not my goal. Please tell me if

you think you will love your woman at any age and not find a younger

one? Can you be faithful?

I think it's better to forget about one's age, age is just a number.

I became attracted to you and I

really want to meet you. If you will not like me or something else we

can be just friends.

I hope I will get my work visa soon in Moscow and all documents and

come to you! I don't have any area limits with this visa so I can work

where I want.

I'm just trying to be honest with you and write you all my thoughts on

different issues. Please be always honest with me also....

I will write you soon, I will see if I have more nice photos to send

you.


OK... it's time to finish my email. I'm sending a kiss by the wind to

you and if I sent it to the right destination you should receive it by

evening )))) I hope you will catch my kiss somehow )))



By for now!!!

Yours,
Olesia


This is the 3rd e-mail that I received this morning!


Hello honey!!! Its Olesia .

it's good to write you again!

I think I'm a lucky girl to meet such good man as you in Internet! I hope I

will be lucky enough to meet you in the real life!!!!!!!!

Yesterday I told my parents about you. And it looks like now they worry about

me not that much like before because they know you are a kind man

and can help me if I need your help. You can show me your city and

tell me about the life over there!

I'm sending three pics for you. Nothing special, just usual pics. One of them is

where i live.

I think I didn't write you I like to cook. I will cook Russian

cuisine for you! Pelmeni, vareniki, blini, borsch, okroshka! You will

like it! Besides Russian cuisine I like Italian and Mexican. I love

lasagna and pizzza!!!!! mmmmmmm ! I can't live without it! I like

Mexican food because it's very spicy, although I don't cook Mexican

dishes too often. I've been told my cooking is very tasty!

I like to cook cakes. My favorite is cheese-cake with raspberry! You

know... when I talk about food I'm getting hungry ))) I eat everything

and I'm not on any diets but usually I don't eat after 7 pm. This

helps me to be in a good shape!

I can cook many tasty things for you when we meet! You know.. almost

all Russian men are like bears! They are so rude, they can't be nice

and polite, they don't want to have a family. I think you are not like

them.

I like to go to the cinema! I really like to watch a good movie with

my friends. 50 of movies in our cinemas are Russian and about 50

American. Yesterday I've seen a great historical movie!!! It is called

'Nomad'. I

really liked it so much! It was produced by Khazakhfilm (Khazakhstan

is situated near Russia ) and there you can see some good American

actors! One of directors

of this movie is a well known Russian director Sergey Bodrov. If you

didn't see this movie find it and watch! I advice it to you!

Actually my favorite actor is Johnny Depp and I like all movies with

him.Also I've watched Transformers few days ago! Have you

seen it?

Could you recommend me any American movie so I can watch it?

What is your favorite movie and actor?

Some time age I watched 'Perfume' (by a novel of Patrick Zuskind).

I've read this novel and I like it so much! Breathtaking! Anyway I

think

the book is better then the movie.

Soooooooooooooooo......... what else could I say?

I have a driver's licence but I don't have a car. My father has a

Russian car and he gives me his car sometimes.

I like not only the cinema! I like theatre and opera too, I like

ballet.

Unfortunately there is only one small theatre in my city and there is

nothing interesting. If I want to go to ballet, for example, I should

go to Irkutsk , there sometimes can come famous Russian actors and

dancers but I can't go there often because it's quite expensive.

And now I have some good news for you! After sending this email I will

go home, take my bags and go to Irkutsk ! From there I will fly to

Moscow! I was

on a plane only two times in my life and I'm afraid to fly! I hope my

plane will not fall down! I'm really afraid! So it is several hours

from Irkutsk to Moscow and I will come to Moscow late night. I don't

think I will live in hotel there, it's very expensive. You know, due to

statistics Moscow is the second most expensive city in the world after Tokyo .

I will rent a room in apartment, it will be cheaper then renting a room

in a hotel. Of course it will be very modest but it's OK for me!

When I come to Moscow and settle down I will write you an email. I

will write you as soon as I can!!!

In Moscow I will spend a week or maybe even more, I should make all

final arrangements with my documents and after that I will come to you!

I've never been to Moscow before and I'm so nervous now... I've never

went somewhere alone and now I should go alone to such big city!

You know... I had such great desire to start my trip already.. and now

I feel myself like a newborn kitten who has even didn't open his

eyes... I just want to hug my mommy and don't want to go anywhere...

but I know that's my dream to start a new life and I will try to turn

in to reality! Soon you will hear some news from me from

Moscow!!!!!!!!



Many kisses to you!


I hope that this helps someone!

Here's the latest & greatest E-mail from the Scammer from Russia!!!!!!! : )

HELLO HELLO HELLO !!!


I'm so excited to write you again!!!!!!!!!! I'm in Moscow ! You can't

imagine how happy I am that I already started my trip to you!

I still cannot believe I've done it! WOW! As I wrote you I was scared

to fly on the plane but everything was OK and I'm still alive ))))

Moscow is really a big city! I've been told the population of Moscow

is about 10 million of people! From the Airport I went by bus... it

was so long way... about 1 hour and 30 minutes. I've seen so many nice

places in Moscow while going by bus!


When I got off the plane in the Moscow Airport policeman asked me

about passport and he looked at me like I am an enemy )))

I think all people here (and everywhere) are a little crazy because of

terrorism.

Everything here is very expensive, not like in my city... and

everywhere are big crowds of people! Everywhere is so many people! I'm

still uncomfortable about it but I feel soon it will be OK. I've been

to few shops here today and I see goods are much more expensive

here then in my native city.

I found a place to stay, I rent a room from an old woman. She is about

70 years old. She said her husband died 2 years ago and she has two

grown up children but they are already married and don't come to visit

her very often so she is alone and she has not much money so she give

in rent rooms in her apartment. She is very nice woman ))

She said I have to be very careful. You know... she said many girls

from small

cities come to big cities... or even abroad... they are looking for a

better future and fortune but because they are from small cities they

didn't imagine their way to find the happiness can be not as easy as

they

thought... and some of them can end up as prostitutes or something

like that. She said I should be careful when I meet you!! But I don't

worry about you! I feel with all my heart you are really nice man! And

I think I'm enough educated not to end up as a prostitute and I will

find my happiness!

Sorry I wrote you about my worries.. I have nobody to write about it.

My parents and my sister are worried enough about me and I don't want

to make them worry more. I think that's really good I've met you! I

can write you about everything.

I miss my parents... but I'm getting better with every hour ))

Now I'm very hungry and I will go and eat something.


Please confirm the name of AIRPORT and be sure you wrote it correctly.


Please confirm me your full name and telephone number.


Please don't be mad! I just want to be sure I have your contacts! This

way I will feel more confident.


I am afraid to make any mistake... I hope everything will be fine.

I will go to the travel agency and they will give me a

schedule of my flight

(date and time of my arrival etc.).

So I will write you tommorow or day after tommorow with all details.


Ok, honey, as soon as I receive the information about

my trip I will write you.





Yours Olesia

Well, as best I can tell both Anastacia and Tolu were scam artists. In fact, I had an investigator check out Tolu with this as the result.

This case matches the known profile of international fraud and scams originating from West Africa. Advance fee
fraud affects a nearly one million people around the world each year. Estimated losses from advance fee fraud
in the form of romance, lottery and transfer scams are over $1 Billion USD annually. In this case, as in many
advance fee scams, the advance fee is required for a visa and financial assistance, followed by a promised
reward. Analysis of the case uncovered a profile of scammers working an operation of advance fee fraud.
Nigeria-based public records do not confirm the existence of Tolu Balogun. In addition, public address and phone
records in Nigeria do not support the claim that a Oshinmi Taiwo of No 21 Ijaiye Road, Abeokuta exists in Nigeria.
U.S. Embassy records in Abuja also show no record of a visa being issued for Tolu Balogun, or any existence of
an application on file. The criminal or criminals’ objective in this case is to pursue the client until he is unwilling to
send additional funds, or is well aware of the scam. The subject’s departure from Nigeria will not occur, only
additional requests for money for additional complications and advance fees. Email analysis was conducted in
this case and provides evidence that this person is writing from Israel, conducting fraud and organized advanced
fee scams with partners based in Lagos, Nigeria. Management of this scam likely resides in Israel.
