The girl in the pictures is the actual would-be scammer in this case. I asked her to take a photo of herself with an up to date newspaper and she did, so it seems obvious that it's her and not stolen photgraphs which is more commom. I've never been scammed as my attitude is everyone online is a scammer until you have met up with them in real life. After that you are on your own, you still might get scammed but at least you know the person is real.

I had my doubts about this girl from the very start as I spoke with her at first on International Cupid which is a site littered with potential scammers but if you know what you are doing, then there are one or two decent women on there. The civil unrest in Ukraine seems to be a favourite excuse for scammers from Ukraine and Russia and this was the case with this girl. She told me she lived in Lugansk, how bad the war had been and how it was unsafe to travel within her country for a meeting. I am fluent in Russian, I have dozens of friends from Ukraine and Russia so I knew this was complete bullshit. Her plan was to meet in another country where it was, 'safe' for her to travel to, so I played along.

To cut a long story short, after dozens of emails and over a period of 2 months she ended up asking me to send her money via western union so she could pay for her travel documents, which of course I didn't do.

I always ask for a girls social media sites and where else I can contact them on. If a girl tell me she doesn't have one of the following - facebook, VK, Twitter, skype, instagram etc then that's a red flag for me. There are tribes in the Amazon who have facebook or at least one social networking site, especially people under 30. This girl had whatsapp but would never respond to my messages. She left two voice messages that sounded like a woman who was a lot older than 27, but perhaps that was just her voice, or perhaps this girl is part of a team/syndicate who scam.

This attempted scam was definitely a bit more professional than some of the other scammers I've come across who ask you to send money within 5 minutes of chatting to them for, sick parents/food/university/rent etc. This was a 'long play' scam and for someone less experienced, well they might have fallen for it. The sad truth is, most newcomers to internet dating on an international level are taken in by these type of scams.

I will post the first and last emails of this potential scammer. The dozens of others are just her setting the scene for her terrible live in war torn Lugansk, setting up a meeting and then trying to ask me to send her money. For obvious reasons I have taken my name out and put XXXX in instead.

Hello dear XXXX! Nice to greet you in private mode ) My name is Irina, we
got acquainted on the dating site. Frankly speaking, it was not easy
to dare to register on the dating site. I've heard about virtual
maniacs, about lazybones who can't tear the ass from the monitor, and
about sex-tourists. Unsightly perspective for the girl, who wants
serious relationships! But after I have some communication with you, I
understand, that you're the man, worthy of attention. I'm interested
in you! I'm romantic girl, tender and vulnerable. The life taught me
to rely only on myself, but I still believe in love and want to meet
my soul-mate. My dream is to have family - husband and children. Tell
me about yourself please - are you loyal? Passionate? Forgiving?
What're you looking for on the dating site? Have you ever hads
relationships with Russian or Ukrainian women? Best regards from

Hello my honey XXXX!
How're you? I thought a lot, also asked advice from colleague. She advised to use services of Western Union, you can send the money to me, I will pay to agency, and the problem will be solved. This is my personal information:
Name: Irina Tsiorba
Address: Tsimlyanskaya street, 15/29, Lugansk, Ukraine, 91000
I have news for you. Perhaps, you'll be surprised. Life is fleeting, but I want our love to live eternally - even after we'll grow old and die. Do you want this also? I'm sure, you want!
I know how we can perpetuate our love. We should found a new city! What you think about this idea? I read legend about foundation of Roma – "the Eternal city". You surely heard, that Romulus and Remus were brothers-twins, nurtured by a wolf. Yesterday I read full version of this legend! And came to the conclusion that real foundation of Rome is love! Romulus and Remus were born from forbidden love of Rhea Silvia, the daughter of the king of Alba-Longa, and god Mars. Lovers lived in different worlds - just as we live in different countries. But real love doesn't know borders!
I want you and I listen to our intuition to and choose a good place, bathed in mild natural sun light, on the bank of river or lake, where our love will blossom. Millennia later, people will pass from mouth to mouth legend about our love and our city... What you think - is it possible? Can we do it? What name would you like to give to our city?
All my love.

The U.S. Embassy receives reports almost every day of fraud committed against U.S. citizens by Internet correspondents professing love and romantic interest. Typically, the Russian correspondent asks the U.S. citizen to send money or credit card information for living expenses, travel expenses, or "visa costs." The anonymity of the Internet means that the U.S. citizen cannot be sure of the real name, age, marital status, nationality, or even gender of the correspondent. The U.S. Embassy has received many reports of citizens losing thousands of dollars through such scams. American citizens are advised never to send money to anyone they have not met in person.
