Well guys, here is a grim reminder that when someone expresses her love and asks for money via e-mail, then you are not the only one.
My name is Matt, and I'm a 35 y/o single dad. Before coming into contact with Russian women, I read Elena's, as well as the other sites offering advice about correspondence, customs, and scams. I decided to use Elena's starter package, so that women who were interested in me would contact me first, and I wouldn't have to fire out a bunch of e-mails and letters only to get no answer. I had several hundred responses, so it was easy to disregard requests for money, as well as agencies who wanted money to correspond to "their" ladies. As a result, I will be meeting 2 women in Russia next month. Between the two of them, I received over 70 letters. Both of them expressed their desire to meet me, and their hope that it leads to something better (unfortunately, it can only happen for one of them, but I'm confident it will work itself out when I meet them). But NEVER did they say they loved me, or make any future plans with me beyond my trip, and they NEVER asked me for a dime. So there was no chance of me being scammed.
Along comes Deny, who also contacted me, but after I made my travel plans to Russia. I wasn't interested in her, but I figured since she said she was coming to the US, it gives me a chance to meet someone without traveling too far. As you probably saw already, it's the same girl from page 118, trying to scam Kevin. One of the pictures also appears on page 66 under the name of Natasha Kravchenko. The letters and pictures were the same as Kevin got, word for word, including spelling mistakes. I smelled a terd right away when she starting using words like dear, darling, etc., and telling me that I was the only one she wanted. I questioned her about many things, including where in the US she was going, and how much free time she would have as a babysitter, and all she did was reassure me that there was alot of time for usto be together. Yeah, right! I got the same letter as Kevin got, where she needed to find money right away. I replied to her never mentioning money,just the usual "How are you doing?" letter. Usually, she would write to me every 3 or 4 days, but I knew what was coming when the next letter came the very next day.
<Hello my dear Matt!!!! How are you ?I am not very good.This trouble with second tiket make me feel bad. I have big unpleasantnesses.I found 240$.But I need 80$ more and I dont know where I can take it . I had been visiting all my friends, but there is no any result. You are the only my hope. Could you borrow me 80$? And I am going to return this money in two weeks when I come.It is very important for me.There is no time more for finding. I knew that it's possible to send money to me by International Money System named Western-Union. I will give you my address and my passport data. And you will have to report me the code of the money transfer which I need to know to receive this money. You are my last hope. In other case everything what I have been done and all my attempts will be useless because absence only 80$. Please, help me. Please, send me the answer as soon as possible,it is very important for me. With kisses your Deny!!! P.S.Sorry for bad news.>
I replied with a lame excuse as to why I couldn't send money. I also suggested I could help in other ways if she sent me some personal information, but of course, she did not reply. Now, she already said that she bought a plane ticket, and has her visa, so here are some things to consider, and once you consider them, you will realize it's common sense.
If a family (or agency) in the US wants a babysitter, or any other type of service, from Russia, I'm sure they (or the agency) would be paying the airfare, knowing that she can't afford it. After all, they want her here, and they can't place their hopes on her suckering men into sending her money for airfare.
Also, someone who needs a visa to temporarily visit the US will NEVER (and I mean NEVER) get one unless he or she has a return ticket.
And one more thing: DON'T SEND MONEY!!!!! Matt
Hello, My name is Alan. I'm a single father of 4 children in Philadelphia. I have the exact same pictures and letters that a man named Mark has from Elena Maximova in Tula Russia. She got my name and E-mail from a Yahoo personal ad I have. The letters were pleasant enough just like Mark's and then the $350 request for money to get a VISA. I checked the embassy in Moscow and found out the Visa was $65. I didn't send any money. Thank you for your site, saving both heart ache and money.
