Dear Elena,
Just wanted to let you know that I think you have a wonderful website filled with a lot of great information. Unfortunately, I found your site too late. It was only after I had been scammed, by who knows who, someone pretending to be a Russian women. I put my total faith and trust in to what I thought was a sincere person. What an idiot I was. The money I lost can be made up I suppose but a destroyed heart will take a long time to heal. This has been very hard on me, both financially and emotionally. Needless to say, for now, I have lost complete faith in internet dating. However, keep up the good work in trying to expose these heartless, cruel people.

Anastasiya (Nastya) Shurkina (Naberejnye Chelny, Russia)

I would like to report a scammer to you organization. I am a singe white
American, no children, 49 years old, employeed full-time.

She is after pocket money and airline tickets to travel to the United States
so she can meet and get married, start a family and get American citizenship. Here are her details.

Surename: Shurkina
Name: Anastasiya (Nastya)
City: Naberejnye Chelny, Tatarstan Republic
Country: Russia
Phone #: Unknown
Photos Sent: Attached
Letters Sent: Included at bottom
Agency Details: American Singles website
Did I report it to website: Yes
Response: None yet

On January 23 Naysta contacted me through the American Singles website. She stated to me that she really liked my profile and asked if we would like to 
communicate through E-mails to get to know each other better. A week later 
she said she was going to Moscow to complete her visa requirement for travel 
to the U.S. so we could then meet. She had never asked for any money during 
our E-mails. When she was in Moscow and had supposedly obtained her visa and went to the airport to come here she stated that there was a problem and she was told that to leave Russia she was required to have $1000 pocket money or she would not be allowed to travel. She then stated that with the cost of her ticket that would only leave her $580 and she needed another $420 and 
asked if I could send it to her and that we could then be together. She also stated that she would return the money when she got to Chicago and she only 
needed it to leave the country and it was a customs requirement. She stated 
that after she received the money that she was going to buy her ticket and 
fly out the next day. Like an idiot I sent her this money through Western Union. The next day she contacted me and said she was going to the airport and buy her ticket. Her next problem then arises. While at the airport to buy her ticket she told me that she must by a round trip ticket as to be able to get through customs and she needed another $659 so she can purchase a round trip ticket and they will not allow her to leave unless she had this ticket. Could I help her out so we could be together and that she loved me so much and just wanted to be with me. I told her that I would purchase her the round trip ticket and all she would have to do is go to the Delta airline ticket desk at Sheremetyevo and show her identification and they would issue her a round trip ticket to Chicago in her name. Made the reservation for FEB5 for her to fly out. Well on that day I called Delta reservations to see she if she used the ticket and boarded the plane. She did not. She called me back that day and said they would not let her use the ticket and she had to purchase the ticket herself. I told her it does not matter who buys you the ticket and all you have to do is go to Delta and pick it up and get on the plane to Chicago. At first I thought she just my have misunderstood about picking up the prepaid ticket so I rescheduled her 
flight to come here for the the next day. Sent her an E-mail explaining exactly what she had to do step by step. Checked with Delta today and she did not get on the flight. Went to Delta in Chicago today and cancelled the ticket and got my refund to my credit card. I was not going to send her cash. She stated she did not want for me to have to pay for her ticket and I told her it was my gift and she could use the money she was supposedly going to spend on the ticket to shop for herself when she got here. She then contacted me today stating she could not get on the airplane and she was told by customs that she must purchase the ticket by herself and to please send the money so we could be together and be married and have our children together. She had also sent me an E-mail earlier in the week with the picture of her visa to travel to the U.S. in her name with her picture on it. I then contacted the consumer fraud prevention unit in Moscow about the validity of this visa. Your guess is as good as mine about the results of this request. Turned out to be a fraudulent visa and they had no records of anyone with her name of ever applying for or being granted a visa to the U.S. I'm pissed. I will be reporting her to every anti scam agency available along with the FBI, Russian Consulate in the U.S., the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, Western Union and her E-mail provider. I want her to be known to everyone so she can never do this again. Thank you for this site.

Hello, my friend. It Ekaterina. It was very pleasant to me to receive from YOU the letter. Thanks that have answered my letter. I cannot believe to the happiness. I wish to admit to YOU I more on a life the house person, even idea to find to myself of the close person-it I idea. It is ALL my girlfriend Nadya. She always forces me to go to cinema, theatre or dances, wants or tries to find to me the spouse. To me even it is ridiculous sometimes. I suspect that actually searches for MYSELF. To me she sincerely swears that for me. Funny observe for her;) We 2 months could not to dare to start to search to me for the spouse. Why so it is a lot of? Nadya has helped me with this question, actually I was not able to work on a computer. I teach the pupils of the mathematician, the literature and physical culture. Other teachers teach THEM other knowledge. I have not got used or have weaned from dialogue with the man, especially such darling as YOU. I start to trust, that YOU have interested me. So as I YOU. With the great pleasure I send YOU one of my photos. Today at me night work at school. Now I to YOU shall tell my schedule of work. I work all the week long except for Sunday. I have sometimes night shifts. It when parents of pupils leave the children to spend night at school. Night shifts on work it is additional days to my future holiday and certainly support me also. Now and dialogue with YOU. I do not have house of a computer and I seem to me therefore not strongly I am able to address with it. I use a school computer on work, in a cabinet of director. That at me is time after work to write to YOU. Thanks for your letter I once again read it. I simply very much wish to continue and develop our relations with you. I from you do not demand to write to me every day, easier to write, how there will be at you a free time and as it is possible often. I shall answer with pleasure each your letter. I want the quiet future for myself and there can be to the future children therefore I work as the teacher and I look after children, 70 % of their parents alcohol in greater dozes turns out take. I do not want such future to the family. If YOU do not abuse alcohol I in delight that We have found each other. I wish to write to you, that I very much love animals and with us in my family there lives a dog "Den." On Saturday We do cleaning of an apartment with mum. Den the dog mind possibly wishes to help us with mum, but only it was confused, bit a broom and then bit a hose and a brush (that the most ridiculous) at a working vacuum cleaner. Has then hidden it for a sofa. We could not find a hose of 30 minutes. Finally we have convinced to show us where Den has hidden this hose from a vacuum cleaner. We have sent it with the daddy on walk that he did not prevent with mum to put things in order to me the at home. Den the clever dog, but likes to play about sometimes. Once there was such case: When Den was eight months, my mum has bought to itself new shoes and was not long pleased. In one perfect day Den them has spoiled. Has possibly confused shoes with the ball. then has been very punished by mum, but I protected a dog. It is very a pity to me when punish, I think that it is possible to explain ALL. Therefore Den loves me more. Do not think that Den a silly dog, there was one more history when he has rescueed to me a life. My grandmother was still alive, to me there were 19 years, I have arrived on summer vacations on a farm and have taken with myself a dog. We have gone to a wood on walk and were lost. We have lost a way to the house. Long wandered on a wood. I have almost broken the voice. I cried. I very much was frightened!!! Then has told to a dog " home! " Also there was a miracle - Den smelt the ground has found traces and has pulled me for a sleeve and has deduced me from a wood home! For me it is easier to communicate in English. Whether you ask I know the city of you, certainly yes, it is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Yes I am able to float, the truth not so well, but I can if not to swim away far. A difference in time at us at two o'clock, in Kazan time zone same as well as in Moscow, you know what difference with Moscow? Between us too most. With YOU there were histories? At me to you one million questions and me so would be desirable to share much with YOU, I very much wish to learn from YOU much but it will seems to me is more practical to send me from YOU photos. Where you both the house. You and native. You both a bath. You and kitchen. I probably strongly was lost in day-dreams. Sincerely yours the friend to lady Ekaterina.

From its books, I read not all because I can not find all books, it is pleasant to me ° to Troy from a wood ° the Derelict Certainly I think of our meeting, and I do not think, that you should dump the weight, I do not want, that went because of me on any victims.

Greetings, my Kitten!!! It Ekaterina! You waited for my letter? I hope, that you wait for my letters as well as I yours!!! Thanks you that answer my letters. How at you weather? At us the present winter. I so freeze here one, without warm embraces!!! Believe, it is very hard, when the person one in the winter. You ask not against I that you have placed my photos in a framework, certainly are not present, I want, that you did as it is pleasant to you. Yes I dance with girlfriends of times in a week we a little go to a dancing class, there we dance modern dances. I think we with you together could be engaged in dances if you not against, I can study any dance which you dance. On discos I went in the childhood and youth, now I do not go on discos. But I very much would want to descend for any evening in an evening dress, but only with you. I think, that it would be better, if I have arrived earlier because at me holiday will be in April. I would like to lead it with you, therefore I think, that it is the whole month which we could enjoy the friend the friend, in May I should work. Besides in travel agency to me have told, that is closer by a summer and at the end of spring tickets will cost more dearly because everyone will depart to holidays. I think, that together we shall think up, that we can visit, I do not like to plan such things beforehand. What do you think of it? Write in detail, can be at you there are any difficulties if I shall come earlier. We talked to the girlfriend about you much and she slightly envies me kind envy, that I have found such interesting friend. And how you carry out the free time? You likely have very beautiful places. You were on the sea? I on the sea was only once. When to me there were 17 years, I with parents went to Crimea, in city Sevastopol. I liked this trip. We lived in sanatorium on seacoast, in very picturesque place. I then have for the first time seen the present palm tree, the truth bananas on her do not grow, heat does not suffice them. Sevastopol beautiful city, I liked " Columns quay " is one of beautiful places in city. About this place, it is direct in the sea, there is " a Monument to the sunk ships ". Directly in the sea the heap of stones, on them costs a column, and on a column the big stone bird. I was struck also with huge quantity of landscapes and with anything not comparable appeal of gold beaches where I carried out a lot of time, under beams of the sun. And what there evenings, the rustle of a crone of acacias and gentle sounds of birds did each my day of stay there, simply unforgettable. But most of all to me celebrating day of Navy fleet was remembered, it is celebrated on last Sunday July. As Sevastopol it first of all base of the Black Sea fleet of Russia here celebrating of this day has reached the greatest scope. Beautiful, tightened and harmonous sailors in ideally smoothed out form have filled avenues and lanes of nice southern city. Then I was very impressionable child, and now probably have remained same. I have remembered this day up to the smallest details, and the word Sevastopol associates with these memoirs. Well I probably speak much?!:) it is simple, this city calls at me many emotions. Write to me something interesting of the life, please. Something such, that you always remember, and that causes many memoirs. With impatience I wait for the answer, your gentle Ekaterina. A kiss for you!!!

10th mail (1st time she asks for money!)

Hi my dear! I am very glad, to receive from you the letter, it so is healthy, that we have found each other. Today in a lunch break I went to travel agency. There I have paid an initial payment 170 euros, have filled in all questionnaires, to me have told, that approximately in 12-15 days documents on departure will be ready (passport), the visa me it will be necessary to receive in embassy in Moscow, but it is simply formal, will be necessary to arrive simply there in due time, to fill there in any documents and to receive the visa. Also I should pass medical inspection. But me have told, that to order tickets (in travel agency, there is any arrangement with airlines) it will be necessary to bring in the second payment because tickets should be reserved beforehand. This sum makes 550 euros, the sum for the ticket and for the insurance there enters, and it is necessary to bring in it till March, 15. You already know, that I have no this money and it is very inconvenient for me to ask you about the help, but other output at me is not present, because I very much to you have become attached and madly I want to be with you. Concerning your holiday I can tell, that I cannot solve for you when you to take holiday, but I think, that it should be made so that was not to the detriment of your work.

Ekaterina Vasilyeva (Orenburg, Russia) - 1

I am a 48 year old divorced male that was contacted on by a woman purporting to be from Tucson. The first email explained that she was really from Russia and lonely and I was the one she has been looking for. After 3 emails, she was in love and gave my email address to travel agency so she could meet me in the U.S on her birthday. I was suspicious and found info on this web site that confirmed my suspicions.

The letters and photos indicate this is the same person on blackpages 435. Here are the letters from the beautiful doctor and travel agency. She didn't even have the courtesey or orginality to change the text. Some scammer !

We have a good weather today its about -2. Its time to go for a walk but you are so far away, and i dont like walk alone. That is why i am in internet cafe now and writing this massage. I dont know what else i can tell you about me i fill that you have already know all things about me. I have fillings that i know you very long time.

Letter 5

Hello my love!!! How are you today? I am so happy to read your emails. 

Sorry for late responding.

I think i love you and you are very handsome man and i always dream about you. I told all about our relationships to my friends and they are very happy to see how i becoming more happy then was before you. I cant wait our meeting and think about you every day. What about you ??? You are the man i am looking for. I was in travel agency to find out how i can get to fly to you. And be with you on my Birthday. I hope we can make it, and i gave your email adress to travel agent and he promised me to send you all information about my trip. Its very good agency and its very popular here, and the main thing, its the cheapest. 

I dont know what else i can tell you but my mind full of words of love and nothing else. Every day i hope that all its real and you are not just my imagination. My friends say you hello. I have some present for you from them. But there is one thing, if we want to celebrate my birthday in your place, you should tell me will you help me or not, cause now they can offer us a good deal about tickets and if we meet later it will cost much more for us because it will be more difficult to get visa which is valid during 1 month, this is some kind of marrige visa, i dont know exactly. 

Think about it cause its very good chance to be tpgether. Unfortunatly, i cant afford it,cause i earn only 300 USD here ,and it will be so nice if you help us, but you shouldnt worry i will give it back to you all money when we meet, cause i will work in some hospital and can earn some money for you. I am sorry to tell that but iam realy want to be with you. I dont know what else i can tell, you 
know everithing about me. Of course if i could i will ask all my friends to lend me some but i dont have any friends who can do it for me , please understand it, soory if it make you sad. I hope you will understand me in good way. I can speak with you all day and night but its better to speak face to face to know each other much better. Dont you think so.???

If you want i can fly to you only for a week and we will see how things goes on or i can stay with you forever, if you love me, all in your hands....

Ok now i give you a lot of kisses from me, and i gave you my heart, and i belive that my dreams will come true. And i will be with you soon!!!!

Love you so much. Want to touch you and kiss you.!!! bye for now.
PS I will be waiting for your replay .

Hello There! Thank you for reply!it is my first time I try to correspondence with man in internet world. I do hope you will be enough patient to understand friend helped me to send my letters to different people and I do hope that I will be able to meet good man! I see that your reply is short and I think It is all right because you are astonished to see my letter in your mail box.I want you to know that I have only good intentions and I have not any great secrets.The
thing is that I will work abroad for three months or so and I would like to meet a nice man to be my guide or just be good friend to spend time with.I think that it is hard enough to live in foreign town without friends and I have never been abroad.I am from so small town here in Russia,I am afraid to be lost.and I want to see real life and it is impossible to see without person who knows all sides of the life .I don't want to live in Russia because I have not any chances here,it is hardly possible to explain from first time but I want you to know my plans.I will work in any shop or look after any babies in any family I will know exactly later.
agency helps me to get a visa and all travel documents and they will help me to get job. My best friend last year met the man from USA when she worked there for three months . She had two jobs. From morning till 4 pm she worked in amusement park and after it she worked as a waitress in the bar till midnight. She was very tired of course but made very good money there.But much more important she met the man of her dreams and I think it is so nice. It is special programme for young people who wants to work abroad and I think it is the right way for me ,I am lost here, and I think that I look pretty enough to find a better place .I want to repeat the same way,it is only my chance to change my life.Agency can arrange my work in USA,CANADA or is only my choice.I am full of plans and different dreams.I have real blonde hair and blue eyes,you know that sometimes my friends call me be fair I don't like this name . I am not doll and I have my own mind.I do hope that you will be not
disappoined to meet me in the real life if we meet. Well,I will close this letter and I do hope to get your reply. I will leave my town in a few days or so (I can't tell you everything exactly right now) and I would like to be sure that I have the man who waits for me there. I will work all day and I would like to find a man to spend all free time together to get to know each other better.if you have any interest to meet me I will be more than happy to meet you too. My be it sounds silly but I just don't want to be alone in the evenings,and I want to be sure in advance that somebody waits for me! I will tell you all details about me and my life if you like my pictures and want to meet me! it is my real personal mail address please use this one because it was my friend address and I would like to thank her for help!.I will send different pictures, I have modern camera it was my gift last birthday.

Subject: Nice to meet

John WOW!!!!!!!!!!!,you answered,it is SO wonderful,I have not thought that it can be so easy to meet nice man ,there are not any problems,usually I have problems to meet a man in real life I think I am too modest for modern world,I was born here and you can't imagine our life ,everyone knows other and there are not any secrets here. At first I think I should say that I am new in cyber space. you should know that I am not very good writer in english.I see you understand my english but I think that there are so many mistakes in my letters. But it is better than nothing ,really? to be fair it is hardly enough to describe myself ,it seems to me we all want to look better than we are in real life! I think that in principle I am usual girl.I think I should tell you about my interests,tastes and hobbies. I think I will tell you about things I want to know about you and you will know my future questions. My real name is Elena Karamisheva ,I am 25 years old,my birthday is February 24.I will be 26. my sizes 37" breast--24" waist--36" hips. my height is 5' 5" and weight is 120 pounds. they tell I look well enough ,maybe there is any mistake here but I don't know your system weel.I have real blonde hair and real blue eyes,I know that many women abroad can improve faces and bodies,and they look so nice, but it is impossible here we live so far from civilazation. I have two sisters and it is great problem for us because we have only two rooms flat. you can't imagine what does it mean to be born in small town in Russia,there are not any chances to live well,to get nice job.All young people leave towns to search great luck in big cities but nobody waits for them there. I think in future I can work as fitness trainer I have certificate. My mother is my great problem too,she has great dream to marry me as soon as possible and she wants to make me happy but I think it is only my business I am not a little child.I don't want to marry to have the ring on my finger I want to share my life with the man I really love and I wait the same from him. To be fair I am not sure I am able to explain all because I want to say so much! I just want you to know that I am not afriad to work,I am fairly stubborn and I am sure you will be not disappoined to meet me in real life. I will have all documents to travel in a few days and i will travel to moscow ,from moscow I will travel to you and people from agency ask me about name of the town where I would like to work,if you don't mind to meet me please tell me the name of your town and nearest international airport!I will book my flight from moscow! I think it would be so great to meet kind man who has time to share in the evenings.I know that it is not so easy like I think but I think it is possible. I don't smoke,I tried to smoke when I was younger.I may have a cup of red dry vine,sometimes it helps to relax. I try to care of my body and face.I know it is all I have . I am not a little girl and I know that at first almost all men look at body ,legs and face.God created males such persons. Well,I think I am lost in my letter,I am not sure you understand my goals,please feel free to ask. I live in Russia,town Marsk ,home 78 - flat 14,it is near enough big city Barnaul,then Biysk and my town near .it is Siberia.Altaiskii krai(area).so far from hollywood(joke). I want you to reply if you understand my mind,my intentions,if not please reply too,I will continue my searching.

Honey, As always I am glad to see the reply from seems to me I am lucky girl to meet such man from first time and I will do my best to meet you in real life!be ready to read my long letter. you know I am new here in cyber space and I am afraid to make any mistake.I have one great lack, I am very impatience and sometimes I can act without thinking.Sometimes I think that my dream
is getting for real and I feel not well later if it was only dream I want you to know all small things about me because it mustn't be any misunderstandings between us. I want you to know that I am not angel I mean I am usual girl with all human's problems. and sometimes I can show my character.And I don't wait that you to be angel,I just want to meet kind man I am very kind and I can forgive almost all I can't forgive if my man sleep with different woman, I don't know many nesseary words in english .I think you can read between lines.I can't imagine 
that the couple has family and he has different woman yet,it is higher of my understanding. I think that much more easy to say the truth and be with woman he loves than every day to tell the lie. I think so,may be I am young and I see everything in pink color but I prefer to be the only woman for my man,sorry too many words sometimes I can be philosopher.well,A little more about myself!
my favorite activite is swimming.I like to swim very much. I wish we had the sea here! I like the sea and I would like to see the ocean,it is my dream! Sometimes I think that I was the fish in past life.I do hope I was dolphin not the shark. I wanted to be as swimm trainer but they told that I can have ugly body with too wide shoulders. I finished The Siberia State Univercity, trainers faculty as fitness ,dancing trainer but I don't work on my profession,I used to sit at home and to do all housework,helping my mom.I would like to have good job,I may work dancing teacher,or trainer of fitness,you know I have a certificate. I worked as a trainer and my girls told me that I am enough good one! . and I would like to do it again .you know how many more younger girls want to get this job too!Alot of
competition here.I want to tell you about things I like: I like to make barbecue and I so much want to have my own home with fireplace. usually I make very tasty ones and in principle I like to cook and it is not problem for me to cook something tasty and I don't like to visit cafes and restoraunts ,at first usually they can't cook well(maybe only here) and second too high price. I like warm weather. and my great dream is to live on tropical island somewhere in ocean.
Small girl dream,really? Also I want tell you about my dislikes: I hate our long winters it seems to me they will never end. I hate lies and unfaithfulness. I hate evil people and politicans I think they like to play wars, I hate any wars.
What I like in a man: faithfulness, honesty. He has to be open- minded and open-hearted, also easy-going. and much more important he must be kind,kindness makes our world! are you kind?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
A few questions yet, do you have own home or live in flat?agency tells that I will have a rent room near my future work I will share this room with a few girls yet,
it is usual procedure and it helps to pay the rent.And I have a question, is it normal if we like each other may be it is possible to live together?of course if you or somebody doesn't mind. I think I will be able to improve my english,you can learn Russian and I think it will help us to learn each other better,who knows.Have you big bed?(joke). have you car?animals? I have drive licence but I am not sure I will be able to drive there. and I do hope you give me a few lessons,to be fair I have so many plans . Well,about important things,I spend so much time to tell about nothing.Sorry dear! I will leave Barnaul airport in a few hours and I think I will be not able to write to you.I will be on the way to moscow.When I am in moscow I will send you short letter to let you know that I am all right and they tell that it takes about two days to get all nesseary papers,to book tickets and I do hope to meet you in the end of the week. I have a great request,Please don't look at different girls.I am the best(joke). Well, I will close this letter I have a few things to do before my principle I am ready 
to travel ,a few small things to finish.sorry if I forgot to reply some of your questions,I think we will have enough time to talk,alive conversation is much better ,do you agree? Now I feel well I know you are waiting for me.See you soon Elena.Kiss you .

visit travel office today and I will get all info about my Trip then. you can't imagine how great Moscow is,to be fair I wouldn't like to live here,a lot of cars,people ,voice and pollution.Ugly traffic and people with crazy eyes.When I get off plane in airport MOscow polismen asked about passport and they looked at me like I am any enemy.they don't like foreign visitors I mean from small towns they think that they are so important to live here,I have heard about it many times and now I can see it.I am not sure how but they can see that I am not from moscow! I rented a room near undergroud ,the old lady was so kind to give me this room,I think it is her businees because of so high prices of the hotels rooms. She tells me that it is great risk to travel abroad without right knowelege and it is like any adventure. She tells that I can find good job here in Moscow and she tells that I am not right to travel to you because everything is not so easy like I think, they have much more info here about world's life and she tells me ugly stories about young women who wanted to get new life and now they must work as prostitutes. I think people living in Moscow are very caution,I think so. and look
at their life I wouldn't like to stay here because it is almost the same ,only great city,but the same people and the same problems. and I think that I have done my choice. you know I am not coward I am not afraid I know it is my chance to change my life .I do hope I am right. and I think you are too kind to make any bad things I feel it.I feel all and I am sure that she is not right. Well,I will close this letter ,!see you soon . Great kiss from moscow!!!!!!!!!!Elena!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think I will call you from airport and I will wait for you there so long as you need,I mean if you need any time to arrive in airport. it is not problem to wait there because I know that it is the end of my trip and I have time to improve my condition(some parfume)after long jorney.

I think everything will be all right. Rather I am sure everything will be all right!. they have told in travel office that I have to show paper that I booked tickets when I will visit embassy aftertomorrow. People from embassy must be sure that I am not going to stay illegally and I have tickets with returning is very strong rule. I have some money but my flight from Barnaul to Moscow costed so much(about 400$)because so many kilometrs from there to Moscow.of course it is my fault because they told me that I have to keep money but I so much in a hurry.I had to use train instead plane to travel from my town to moscow but i have never fly.I think it is to late to sorry and one bad thing yet that prices of servise of aerflot got more expensive from New year because of high gasoline price. I have to bye tickets till my intervew,because of such rule. May be you could borrow some money?I can't live here too long because every day I have to spend some money to live.Very expensive city.the cup of the tea costs about almost a half of dollar. I think it is not too great amount I ask and I am sure I will be able to return it back in a few weeks after my arriving I will earn some money and at first to return all money to you. in Agency they have told me that you may send it to use western union system because we have no a lot of time till my intervew,if everything will be all right I will get Saturday flight! I have about 300 US dollars yet and I think I need about 850 US dollars from your side with all travel needs and living here till my flight! If everything will be all right between us I can stay with you longer than three months,maximum I can stay about 6 months for first time! We should change only the date of my returning flight. you may send it to any bank of Moscow.

NOTE: I haven't heard from her since. I initially did a search on "Elena Karamisheva" and it turned up nothing. When I received her last email, I did a search on "Wetrova Alisa" and it hit on several 'scammer' lists.

From the looks of things, it appears that her and her associates have been trying to scam quite a large number of men.

Elena Romanjuk (Yoshkar - Ola, Russia)

I am a single father of one 8 year old son, white American, 48 years old, retired US Navy. I was contacted via one of the large dating sites in the US named ‘’ by a woman of 24 named Elena claiming an interest in my profile. Included in the message was a personal email address of ‘’. This first contact occurred on the 21st of January in 2006 and the request for money occurred on the 14th of February in 2006.
