That sounds like scam a lot... I can recomend you the place where your girl can get FREE Internet access. If she's serious, she will use it :) I am in Lugansk for few years already and know how this type of scam works. You can find my e-mail address in this forum easy.
Distinguished. Martin is 100% correct. This scam has been around for years. Your girl is not real. They hooked you with the free letters then when they think they got you convinced they hit you with the " Tanya or such and such has run out of money in her account" Don't waste your $30 my friend. Sounds like a little bit to invest to be sure she is real or not but don't bother. She's not real. The scammer is real and they have gotten better at their trade. That is why they have answered all your letters so well.
This is regarding Irina (Iryna) Starozhuk, or now known as irena Chernata. What a scammer!!!!! My friend was corresponding with her and sent a package to her at 68600 Ukraine Odessa region Izamil st.Vesennaya 4-V ap 30 iryna Starozhuk and it came back as no such person. She said that she was a model, 22 years old, had a degree in Interior Design, only weighed 110 lbs and was 5 foot 4. He has repeatedly tried to make arrangements with her to come see her but she has said no not now 3 times. Does this sound familiar to anyone???
She now is called Irena Chernata and weights 120 lbs, 5 foot 7, Has a degree in Agriculture, uses the same introduction and wording about herself.
Yeah he sent money- lots & lots. I would suggest you steer clear from this lady if you don't want to be scammed.
You cannot be scammed if you use common sense.Your friend is my worst enemy...scammers are around due to people like your friend...always thinking with the wrong head. I hate to be so critical but I see it often, I don't care what this women is called or changes her profile daily, you cannot be scammed if you do not allow it. DO NOT SEND MONEY TO SOMEONE YOU HAVE NEVER MET!! Can you please stamp this on your friends forehead!! Thanks
