Nadezhda – Ulyanovsk, Russia
Address: Ulyanovsk, Russia
Website: Yahoo – American Singles
Details: Typical scam. She contacted me. Letters got very intimate quickly. Correspondence continued for only about four weeks. Sounded good for first couple correspondences, but she failed to respond to most of my questions. Said she wanted to meet in a neutral place. When I said I would go to her, she wrote that she would come to me. Several letters saying she was making plans. Then finally a letter saying she had paid some on contract with travel agency but in spite of getting money from parents, didn’t have enough and wanted me to send for travel and visa (the visa was going to be $750!). Early on I had told her I would never send money but would pay expenses when she got to the States. She ignored that, then tried to pressure by saying she would be out her money if I didn’t send her some. I have asked her not to write again as I felt she was not on the level.

Nikolaeva, Viktoriya – Tula, Russia
Address: Tula, Oblast 20 km south from Moscow. Stadt Tula, Straße Proletarskaja 36, wohnung 14
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
A lot of money sent to Voktoria first for the Visa/and flytickets for her to come to Sweden. Trip with extra money about 800 Euro.Then she decides that she wants to make an even longer stay with me for another 3 months. She do this Tourist Visa and that means that she needs to show Russian State from her bank account that she has the money to support herself, I send another 1800 Euro+1800E+1800E and she says this money will i get back when she comes, and i think all that sounded ok so i used Transfergo. I have traveled in Russia before and i know this sounded correct i had done similar Visas from Russia before so i was not surprised about the 3 monts payment, I startet to feel suspect of this scam when she suddenly had an accident and could not come.She did go in train from Tula to Moscow to sleep at Axel Motel on night then get on a flight to Sweden. I waited for her to call when i thought she had landed in Sweden but no call from Viktoria. Suddenly about 1 day after she should have been here she mail again and was angry about the people working at the airport in security control did not let her travel becouse of her having a bank loan in Russia. She called said we must pay that loan and then i will be able to come. And i did not just send the money she this scammers have really good skill in manipulating documents so every time i said hey what is this just bullshit? Then she proved thru documents that she is talking the thruth. She even showed documents from Visa,Bankloan,papers from travel agens like BORK and all the time she maniplulating even more when she starts feel i am tired..in few hours she has an new fake dokument and that looks so real.She shows proofs of every step in a document to me and then i belive her again. She is a manipulating Girl and it can be a man doing the data fake documents job for her i dont know it is more people involved. Anyway when i started to be tired of all this she told med hey i am still in Moscow can you answer a Skype phonecall Marcus Mein Liebe… When i did get that phonecall from her she was walking the streets and she had the video skypecall on and she said Hello Marcus how are you and then i did just see this phone go in the streets she screaming and a car brake hard. It looked like an accident and a young Russian man take the phone from the ground look into the phone and scream Suka Blyat! and then he shuts of the videocall. It was the sickest child play i have ever seen. Anyway after few dayz she started sending me pics from hospital bed in moscow and this Dr.calls and spekas to me about her operation and they send documents of me being her boyfreind having to help with money for the operation. It is in this state o am today 2022-01-24 Ending up paying in total 8000Euro. Even the Dr is sending me bills on mail looking very serious. I did stop sending now but i want to stay conected with them alittle longer i dont know they will disaper if i stop sending Answers on the mail. This are a bunch of kids Viktoria a girl 25-30 and this Suka Blyat boy is around 20-30 and it is more people also i can imagen i think USA is linked into this also or they are using VPN Tunneling to hide their IP address. Kids with to little to do on their free time thinking they are smart with false papers..Today it is pretty simple with an normal laptop Windows Computer so scammers do not have to be highly skilled computer people just having the time to learn how to it it is just a play with pictures if you can paint and are good with a computer it is just copy and past to change documents all the time must be a boring fucking job. This story is so sick i dont know where to start or to end i just write in madness. And i have so much emails that has been sent over about 6-7 months hundreds of emails and i still have them in my inbox..i am pretty tired of them to be honest but this girl is still writing to me from A Hospital in Moscow she says. She is saying and now lying in a hospital needing money..more money more money. The funny thing in all this is that she is from Russia, Problably Moscow i am not 100% sure but pretty sure she is sitting in Moscow right now playing with my money. I did send her an email with an teddybear picture and in that mail i did send an IP Tracker so i could locate her ip adress and location and i got Moscow in this hit. The wierd thing is that she says she is in a hospital and her mother starts to email me Tula and saying that she has been in an car accident. (Надежда Бочкарева <firstname.lastname@example.org) So i did send the same teddybear back to her mother and that location was not Tula it was a hit from United states, North Charleston Ip nr 188.8.131.52 so i di start to understand someting is really bad here and she has atleast one more helper in this Scam.She is an ok speaker of German she says she did learn it in Russian school, so she did all this time talk to me in German language thru the mailing time i always used google translat and answer back in German. More easy that English for her so we decidet to do this all the time. Who knows she maybe do not know German lang at all just uses Translator like i am.

They have refused that and just say “If you will not send the money I cannot come” Money transfer request is: “My love I send you the bank account of my aunt of Lena. This account.
