With this address email@example.com I received 4 months ago some contact e-mail. I never send money in Internet and it had been clear from the first letter. She wrote to want to come to meet me in Italy and said to buy with her money passport and Visa for tourism.
Letters: This the first e-mail with her “real address”: “Hello my love!!!!!!!!! How are you, my dear? I hope, that all is good. Thanks for your warm letter. My Gabry, I have good news.

So I sent her an invitation letter with my documents. After few days she asked me for an help to buy air ticket. I refuse telling that the most was an e-ticket to her name. So she send me a copy of passport and Visa.
The day before she has to leave, I received this e-mail: “Hello my dearest, my darling love. Thanks for your letter and details of electronic air tickets. Today I have visited travel agency to show your electronic air tickets. With air tickets all is good. There was other problem, my Gabry. Today the worker of travel agency has informed me, that when I shall travel to you to Italy, I need to pass the customs control. I should have with myself cashes. It is necessary for me to have with itself 1400 Euros. This money does not need to be spent. It is necessary to show this sum at customs.. What now we shall do, my Gabry? I have no such sum of money. I am upset by these news. My love, to me have explained, that these cashes serve as a guarantee of my state.
That the citizen who travels to Italy can rent habitation, have food, does not become the slave and will not be engaged in prostitution. Without presentation of cashes, me will not pass through customs, and I cannot depart to you. My love, what to me to do??? Without your help, I cannot arrive to Italy on August, 6th. I need only to show this cash sum of money. I shall not spend it, I shall bring your help with myself to Italy.
My love, you will help with 1400 Euros? You will have time to send your help prior to the beginning of my travel to you? Please, try to borrow money from your friends. Today I tried to borrow money from my 3 girlfriends, but unsuccessfully. Unfortunately, I do not have rich girlfriends. My Gabry, please write to me as soon as possible, what we shall do now? I am very upset by the latest news, I have tears. With love and respect, yours Tatiana”
I had been really surprised because I know that “economics” are required from Italian Embassy for Visa and Italian Police at border. So I asked to Italian Embassy if there was some changed. They replied me soon that the Visa was of an Ukraine man and required in 2006. So I have lost only some money for the cancellation of air ticket.
Vereycina Anna – Chulman, Republic of Sakha(Yakutia), Russia
Country: Republic of Sakha(Yakutia), Russia
Address: Russia, Republic of Sakha(Yakutia), village of city type Chulman, Sovetskaya street, house 44
I received an email from this person out of the blue and we began chatting. After several emails, indicates interest in overseas travel and asks for money upon supposedly reaching Moscow. The style of the letters is similar to another scammer I encountered, Gulfiya Shoutanova. Contact stopped after I ignored the last few letters.
Veselkova Valeria Yu – Onega, Russia
Address: Onega, Arkhangelsk region, Russia
On the 5 June email, she says she went into the Consulate in Moscow to collect documents (passport, visa, etc), but was asked to see her “travellers cheque”, (what you call “Solvency money”). She says she asked the consulate official how much this was, and was told £3,930, without which she couldn’t leave Russia.
As I now know, that is not required, and is actually illegal. Valeria then asked me if I could help because she had no money, and could I send it quick. She had apparently been told that this money could be just sitting in her Russian bank account so she could prove that she had the funds at the moment, and there was no reason to actually have the cash in her hand. I stupidly transferred £3930 into her Russian bank account on 9 June.
On 12 June my bank, Natwest, and my daughter both convinced me that I had made a big mistake, and told me to try and stop the transfer going through by recalling the Urgent Transfer via the bank. I went to the bank and had a meeting with the chief cashier and she promised to try to catch it in time. Because I knew that Valeria had not yet received the £3930 into her bank account, I sent her an email on 12 June asking her to transfer the money back to my bank, as I had changed my mind.
The email she sent me just said that the money would be safe with her because she promised it would be just kept in her bank account to show the airport authorities and then withdrawn and returned to me as cash, when she came to England to see me shortly. I sent another email to Valeria telling her not to cash my transfer, if it arrived, and to return the money to me as I must have it back quickly. She kept promising me that the money was safe in her hands, and she wouldn’t do anything with it without my authority.
During this time her Russian bank took 2 weeks to tell my bank that the money had reached aleria’s bank account, so could not be touched as they classed it as her money. Despite all my attempts to get the money back, the £3930 I sent reached her Russian bank account on 13 June, when she sent me an email telling me that she had cashed it at the bank despite all my attempts to have it sent back. On 15 June, departure day, she sent me an email telling me that she had gone to the Moscow airport and boarded the plane only to be asked if she was leaving any outstanding debts unpaid. She says that the customs officers checked her details on their computer and came up with £8,200 still to be paid on the purchase of her family apartment.
They said that the debt would need paying in full before she would be allowed to depart for England. I have also found out since that this is also untrue, and not the law. Valeria had also ignored the fact that I had wasted 6 hours myself that day by travelling to and back from the English airport she had told me she was landing at – Manchester airport, in Yorkshire. I arrived there early, and waited and waited for the plane to, land, unload, and when I found out the plane was empty I went to the information desk and waited again whilst they put out various messages over the loudspeaker system for her to let us know where she was (she has a mobile), obviously not knowing that she never intended coming at all.
So she finally on 15 June Valeria sent another email (page 12/ 13), in her typical broken English, that she had just gone to a lawyer in Moscow to see what she could do to sort this problem out. She said the lawyer agreed that it was Russian law that debts had to be fully paid before she could fly, and that if she could pay the loan quickly, should would be paid its full value of £50,000 very quickly as property was selling fast.
The next email she sent (p14) told me that she had gone ahead and paid my £3930 to the apartment loan company without my authority as it seemed a good idea to her, and now she needs the final £4,800 to pay the full loan off! She says she will then be able to fly over to England and draw out, in cash, the full amount she owes me, £8,200. Finally I have realised how stupid I have been, and have now refused to pay anything more. I am convinced that the whole story is false, and all she has done is lie about everything.
I don’t believe she has spent any money on anything, there is no apartment, she is not a pharmacist, etc. All she has done is walk away with my total spend £4,660
Vladu Alexandra Roxana – Bucharest, Romania
Address: 25 Petre Inspirescu, Bucharest, Romania
I wanted to report a fraud suffered by me by a Romanian girl living in Bucharest. I helped financed her by paying the debts which I now understand that they were false. I helped her to get custody of her daughter by paying the legal fees which will probably never did. I paid part of his studies in a way that would end the school before moving to Italy. I sent the money to buy the plane ticket and pay his debts so that the last was free from ties and problems and be able to come to Italy peacefully.
Two days before we departure coinciding with the last payment I made of 900, she tells me that we needs to think and then decided not to come to Italy. Informing me on various sites and Forums it is to late and she is not changing her mind. I realized that I was the unwitting victim of a scammer, professional as they say in a SCAMMER. I realize I have been very stupid in fact cheat myself in this way losing to ‘about 3000 Euros and a long time behind false promises of love, leveraging its my feelings in helping a young girl and single mother of a future life together as a family. All vanished after the last payment to including airline ticket and the last payment to her.

Here are pictures of a Russian girl that email me thru a dating web site. This girl I really like her until one day I found her in another scammers site? It was the same pictures that she had recently send me. Her mother is Ekaterina. She said her father was killed in a bus accident 8 years ago. She claims to be a Nurse in Kanash but when I contacted the hospitals nobody heard of her, lying bitch. After six months she start asking me for travel money to be with for marriage.
I believed her to be genuine but she was just scammer and I fell for her/he lies. I did not send any money I told that was bull because when she arrived in the UK I would take care of you. After that letter I never heard from her again. I did write many times but no reply from her again. She is I presume shopping in the most expensive stores in Russia and planning a nice little holiday. I was thinking after she maybe but she/he is a lying bitch. My mistake for not checking Antiscam dating scammer first.
