Met, thru email a lady supposedly by the name of Natalya Dolgorukova, age 28, from supposedly, Petrovka, Russia. Over a period of about 2 months, she sent 75 very attractive photos. Her address on yahoo was firstname.lastname@example.org. I found her picture and description on a scammers list. Her real name is (supposedly) Kataya Ivanova from Cheboskary Russia, I fell for this girl hard, real hard, being unattractive by american standard, 55 yrs of age and lonely as hell did the trick, Just wanted to let people know all russian ladies not bad, but this one i just dont know
I am familiar with the Yahoo scammer routine. I have an old profile still posted - and out of the blue I received a long letter and 2 beautiful pictures of a Russian woman who wanted to write to me. I suspected scam - and was already involved with the lady who is now my fiance - so of course I ignored her.
But maybe three weeks later a friend I happen to work with asked me if I could give him some advice on Russian women. It seemed that he had gotten the same letter and the same pictures and subsequently many more as he had written back to her quite a few times. I told him, of course, I thought it was a scam
About the same time she started talking about wanting to meet him and asking for money for the old (you know the routine) visa and plane ticket. I think she was asking for $850. I told him, in no uncertain terms to FORGET IT - but he was very much "in love" with her and wanted to believe it.
The story he tells is that he never actually sent the money. He says he decided against it at the last moment and told her that rather than comie to see him, he would go to see her at some future date. He English suddenly got a lot better as she told him that this option was not acceptable, he says, and that was the end of it.
Other people who know him say that the above story was his way to save face. They say that he DID send the money and she never showed up. But the point is the entire process took about as long as you mentioned in your post.
Again, I hope you did not send her any money. But did you?
I just got a letter from a russian girl on filipino friend finder. I know she is a scammer. i can smell 'em a mile away now. Lets take numbers to see how many letters it takes before she asks for money !!
Do you know a tosser named Vanechka by any chance?
There is good and bad wherever one goes, yes there is a high proportion of female scammers on the internet but by no means most women as you put it, please get that chip off your shoulder and start speaking the truthful facts, the majority of women are genuine, perhaps less than 25% are scammers and it doesn't take too much to detect the scammers if one thinks with a clear head and does not allow their judgement to be shrouded by having a chip on their shoulder or for whatever reason.
The only way a scammer survives is by idiots sending money, are you such an idiot Alexferd hence your 'chip'?
