I proposed her and gave her ring, then i found out that she was continuing her relation with her ex-boyfriend (Vova) even before I met her. her sister told me this and when I went thru her email and phone I found prof that she was lying and cheating behind me.
She called me liar because I unveil the truth and exposed her to her parents and to her ex-boyfriend and said that I am violent and threatened her where as her bf Vova threatened to kill me. and she also accused me of going thru her email and phone where she had many emails and massages to her ex-boyfriend. Her ex- boyfriend was not informed of my relationship with her.
When I contacted him and let him know about us he had threatened me but later understood me very well. She has lied cheated and betrayed me and to her family and ex-boyfriend.
I was fortunate to take necessary action in order to avoid catastrophe before its too late. Be advised that she is very seductive and goes as far as intimacy to get u to believe she is real and will ask you to trust her words. she lives in Riga, Latvia. but she travels to many places around Europe and USA to get settle out of her country. be careful do not fall for her love or sponsor her thru marriage. she would ruin your life as well.

Sedyh, Pavlina – Pisklovo, Russia
Postal Address: 15/1 Pogranichnaya Str, Pisklovo, 457159, Russia
E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Details: I was contacted through a Yahoo Personals ad. She seemed very straight forward if a little shy, at first. Over a month’s period, she used a very subtle approach to start the online relationship….very believable, with a combination of claimed morality, and dedication…even included details of her girlfriend Svetlana’s birthing experience and related stories of her parents’ present day lives back in the Ukraine.
Eventually, talk of a meeting occurred and her willingness to come to the U.S. overcame any logic I had in the matter…lol! Asked for passport, visa, and insurance money to the tune of $220 U.S.D., which I sent to this address:
The next day, she sent an email with details of a flight from Moscow to my home state, complete with departure, lay-over, and arrival times….said the ticket for $1074 U.S.D. would need to be paid in cash, sent to the same address as the visa money or else the reservation could not be guaranteed. At this point, I finally realized I had been taken. Sad, but true…and apparently, not so uncommon!

Details: I was scammed and I knew right from the moment get go. I was not the only there were 3 more California, Texas, Alabama and Washington states in USA to the tune of (roughly $20000) by this same girl ELENA SEREGINA wearing Hijab all the time and sending tons of pics , fully covered even while swimming .
Loves to Skype, video chatting in person all legitimate and Bonafide as well as voice call you numerous times . She is ok looking but her Hijab makes her really attractive and most beautiful women you ever met . She has top Quality Forgeries for VISA that she will send you including US visa . Smart enough to exploit the nerabilities in you despite you having a strong suspicion from the very beginning.
What got me was her exploitation of Muslim religion, knowing that even if we suspected, which I believe we all did , we will still ignore that suspicion considering that she was a strict Hijabi and practicing Muslim Girl . In tons of Pics sent including the ones sent from her daily chores never showed her without Hijab . Further legitimacy was lent by the presence of several of her Muslim friends all wearing Hijab.
Some pics were inside the mosque and in some she is holding Quran. And If you are smart enough to still figure it out the last trick she uses will ensnare even the shrewdest and most astute including me …. Where her dad and she will have fake Nikah over the phone with you and then you are well done.. all toasted ready to be devoured all in a game played by this woman in the name of the almighty.
My deduction is that this is an elaborate gang using stolen credit cards and peoples Identities and may send you gifts that are strange and don’t make any sense at all. But beware of anyone from Nizhny, Yoshkar Ola as these are the hubs of all scams and frauds.

Mom told me that I can ask you about help if you are my beloved and she will send all the sum in a few weeks and i will give it all to you.
Julian I wanted to ask you to help me to pay for my tickets directly but I was told in travel agency I can’t use your help or ask you about sending me tickets or ordering electronic ones because I have a permission to use the help of the travel agency only. You see it is business of travel agency to arrange all travel things for my trip, such is the law. If I will buy ticket by myself, I will be not able to use my work visa. So you can’t send me tickets.you see the price of the trip is big enough but I can get work permission only with help of agency. If I will not buy tickets my visa will be canceled and it will be forbidden for me to apply for visa again for next 8 months.
Now I have only about 150 dollars that I expected to take with me for the first time and plus 200$ mom sent so if you will help me with 950$ I will have enough to buy tickets and have some extra money for travel needs.
Well,I will be here tonight and please don’t worry if I can’t answer immedeatelly . I have too much to do. Julian please make transfer by western union, I got transfer from mom and have all the info for it, it was so easy to get.
You should know my rent address here is Russia, Moscow, Prospek Lenina 229 – 31. My full name is Olga (first name) Shmakowa(last name) and I can pick up the money at any bank of moscow. It will be safe to use western union transfer! Please try to help me with the sum and in one month I will return you money back!! P.S. Julian dear I am sure when we meet we will have no regrets about it, I promise. I dream about our first meeting, our first kiss ,our first night………….I will dance for you, I think everything depends on you! Please, honey, don’t leave me alone I’ve done so much to start this trip and I don’t want to give up.
And as always forget about important thing, when I got my mom transfer in western union bank here I fill out the form and I send this form because I can’t get transfer from you if I don’t know this info to fill the form.

Shoutanova Gulfiya – Omsk, Russia
Address: Omsk, Russia
Details: About 1 and a half months ago, this woman initiated contact with me out of the blue via email. We corresponded altogether for about 2 weeks. During that time, she mainly talked about her life and other stuff. However, a week into our correspondence she wanted to visit me here in Australia.
She said that she’d travel to Moscow and organise all necessary travel documents. However, she then asked me for money to send her money via Western Union to pay for tickets. While I initially refused, I ended up sending the money. After collecting it, she then requested more for ‘passing customs.’
Soon afterwards, she requested the same sum again due to being robbed on the way from the bank. I sent it and then things were settled for the next 2 days. She claimed to have everything in order. On the day of her supposed flight, she claimed to have an accident at the place where she was supposedly staying. She forgot to close the taps and it flooded the downstairs neighbours’ library.
At 5am that night, I received a phone call from an unknown number, which turned out to be her. I didn’t hear my phone ring. The policeman who lived there took away her documents until she could pay to have the damage compensated. This was her final request for money from me. After I sent her the money, she thanked me and supposedly paid the charge. I never heard from her again.
I only discovered the scam when she failed to arrive or make contact with me somehow. Later, I found more information about this scammer after I reported it there. This person has used many aliases in her almost 4 years of scams and only people in Australia actually fell for this scam. Another man from Adelaide lost $2500 and I lost $5900 altogether. The Western Union records indicate that the money was collected from different outlets in Omsk. She provided me with a false location.

Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Details: Asks for “Visa” money, and then a letter or so later mentions needing possible help with monies for an airline ticket. Pressure, time wise, get it to her, due to her, sent by Western Union by a July drop dead date due to her having vacation in July and the Visa Agency, which she never names directly, has a deadline in which she must have the money in by or else she will not be issued a Visa in time to make a visit to me in the US. She claims to be in and out of the hospital due to some illness, as yet unnamed it appears that is the setup for her eventually not being able to “make her flight” she will come down with some illness at the last minute after all monies are sent.

Details: I was registered on the website Meetic, and one woman wrote me because he was interested in my profile. Try to locate her in Meetic but could not because Meetic deleted her profile. Then all of a sudden she wrote to my from email address email@example.com. I wrote that to her and stated the idea is to talk online. Then she responded from this email: Natalimilove@gmail.com. I make it clear from the outset that I would not send any money and she did not seem to mind, so we kept talking. She told me that her mobile phone was a company phone and she is not allowed to receive calls on it. I still called twice from two different numbers s he gave me. We had no Internet access. We talked for a month and two days ago s he asked me to pay her money for a visa and additional money for the paperwork that is needed to travel to Spain. I did not sent any money, some of my photos but nothing that compromises me. She keeps insisting on money, that she is very much in love, her life is nothing without me and all that nonsense. I have marked her email as Spam, but I on keep receiving emails.

Siwkova Swetlana – Nizhny Novgorod, Russia
Address: Gagarin Avenue, 39, Nizhny Novgorod region, Nizhny Novgorod,603009, Russia
Details: She is typical story doing everything on her own. She sold her apt for $1000.00. She sold her camera but Agency Tripworld needs $450.00 to make airfare complete. she fell in love with me immediately because I’m a warm and caring man. She is around 27 a school teacher and goes to Internet Cafe daily to send and receive emails. She is alone and wants to be together forever. She has no family all alone. I was sceptical but every morning I see a new email. Then she never asked for money. Until it can no longer wait she “must come! yes? Hold the hand…” Watch out she is really a bad person! A deceitful person! At first I thought why would somebody do this for such a minimal amount of money. Then I realized 10 men working them is now $4500.00. So don’t be fooled. Swetlana is no school teacher. She is a mathematician:/
