The writer who said ' scammers are predominately MEN regardless of whose photos they send' is absolutely right. Even though I personally met the woman who corresponded with me and sent me real photos, I learned that Russian speaking men in the US (Scranton, Pennsylvania) in in Moscow opened an probably read my emails and also sent letters to me pretending to be from Tiana. I believe this is true because too many of 'her' letters never answered many of my simple questions such as 'what is your mothers name, where does your sister live and how old is she , or what is your favorite thing to do in the winter ?' Although I know men were running this scam, I am still pissed at her because she wrote many of the letters and she knew it was a scam. She is a criminal and just as guilty as the men behind the scenes. In some crimes in the US, such as 1st degree murder, kidnapping etc.. persons that are an accessory to these crimes often are prosecuted and sentenced to heavier punishment than the person who pulled the trigger or snatched the kidnap victim.
I also agree with a man who wrote that he believed the people who scam honest sincere people (men or women scamming women or men) are worse than a rapist, but I think they are even worse than a murderer. When a person is murdered, the victims life on earth is over, this includes his problems and his suffering. But a person who is scammed for their heart may also lose their hope to find a partner and are afraid to trust any person. They, like myself don`t get an end to our suffering, in fact the pain and suffering (torture) has just started. I live in emotional anguish every day and I lost any hope for anything good in my life ever happening. I have not eaten or slept like a normal person since I learned I was scammed by the woman I fell in love with. Some people will laugh and say 'grow up and get over it like a man '. To those kind of people I say 'be thankful it was not you who gave his all and then had his hopes and dreams crushed'.
I`m 57 y.o. and worked hard for 48 years, been through the good and bad that is life and I`ve picked myself up after getting hurt my share of times, but this one kicked my ass so bad I just said 'F**k it'. I don`t even like me anymore. This changed me into something I hate.
GUYS!!!! what a fun ride this has been but BEWARE. My background - I worked for the government as anti terrorism trainer and I wasnt born yesterday.
this one is not new to the site but using new emails and pictures. I met her on match.com. she gave me a wink. the next day i was on match.com and she invited me to start chatting. next thing i know we are on windows live messenger.
Things started off ok, she seemed into my profile but then suddenly i noticed she hadnt read a damn bit of it. RED FLAG. so i played around with her to see where it would go. within an hour she was having a birthday in 4 days and was sad that she couldnt get funds together. HINT HINT. Then it went into my dad is dead from car accident to i take car of my mum and work in a beauty hair cut type place weaving hair. She lived in the UK, moved to Mexico and her dad died. Then she moved to Ghana to take care of her mum.
The next day it turned into another session of, I am falling for you. I want to be your wife someday. your such a loving father. however, i asked if she can remember certain things from the day prior and she couldnt. 2nd RED FLAG. last night it turned into baby buy me a calling card, i want to hear your voice. hahahaha! Tried to get her over to SKYPE. wouldnt do it - says she is not good with it. She was sound desperate for me to western union money. I didnt budge. I told her I had a calling card and that I was trying to call her. She freaked out! Said that her phone wasnt 'loaded' and would have to talk on cell phone tomorrow. She signed off and that was the last I heard from her until 11p pst last night. I got the ol' I feel asleep deal from her and she was at her friends house and couldnt use a camera. i could tell things werent right again. Today when we got online she didnt mentioned anything about me wanting to call her. SO how could a woman so into me not remember me trying to call her? Look for the signs fellas! Today she asked if i could get her a camera with a memory stick so she could take pictures and send them to me - hmmm. last night she couldnt even figure out her camera on her computer and today its a memory stick with a digital camera - sony. However she wanted me to wire the money because its cheaper to buy there in Gahna. She even went as far as asking me to shut my profile down on match.com and wanted my account information to do it! hahaahahaa.
so today i told her a f'd up story that i felt so bad about this new job i got and that i was quitting because of morals. That i was head over heals for her and that i felt bad that i met the one and it was a scam on my part for money but was now reformed love her until the end.at the same time i dropped the picture off this site in her msn live and watched it download. seconds later she went out of her mind with fbombs then - she asked where i got that - hahahaaa. she was F'N pissed and and blocked me off her IM messenger.
Guys this little wretch is bad news. Her keywords and verbal remarks are these below - BABY, MY MAN, COWARD (she uses this one alot to get money), SWEETHEART, and my favorite - YOUR WISH IS MY COMMAND!
I dont have a picture of her and im bummed but she is the woman i am going to post. Again, my job for the government is casing people. the features are there. this is raven riley, stella gyasi and whatever else she goes by. Considering a days wadge in this country is about $1.50 US what they are getting away with over there is nutty. Beware guys, if its to good to be true, it probably is. Sorry to burst your bubble.

Hi, I found Tatiana, Tana, Anna from Lugansk, Dnepropetrovsk, Olexandrovsk, and her nwest address, Novoaydar, Luhansk Oblast, UA, on metrodating and fdate. I could not look at her picture without getting pissed and sick to my stomach, so I reported her and her profiles were removed the same day (8/18/09).
I know I should let her and her partners stick their filthy necks out farther and possibly have these scum prosecuted, but it is as if the bitch`s photo is laughing at what she did to me. Maybe I can overcome this and let these punk, scum, chicken-shit assholes hang their self.

The gorgeous woman known on here as Maria rasheed, Ravin Riley, Riley Twist, and Tatyana, and on other sites as Nancy Milman, and Patience Aflah, is known to me as MARY DONKOR from Accra, Ghana, Africa. She scammed me over a period of months to the tune of $1200 US Dollars! She used the phone +23324-4664495. She has helpers such one who poses as a lawyer who called himself Barrister Christopher Johnson, and many others. She is not shy to use God and sex as tools of disception. I have many photos and copied yahoo instant messages, if anyone knows how she can be prosecuted by law in Ghana...surely they would like to clean up their act. She has scammed so many, she needs to be put in several years of hard labor, and let filthy people screw her like she has done to me.

How sad it is to see yet another victim of being scammed
that doesn't even know Raven Riley had nothing to do
with, Your being scammed at all.
But, You made a bigger mistake just now by posting, Your
e mail address on this site.
Contact Peter the site administrator and ask, Him to please
remove it as soon as possible. If You leave it here scammers
will fill, Your inbox by the hundreds.
Scammers watch this site all the time.
Many only want a chance to attack, Your computer.

Now back to, Your misguided anger toward Raven Riley.
Her pictures are stolen and used by many scammers.
Your scammer from Accra Ghana was most likely a man.
Nearly 100% of all scammers are men.
Thats right especially coming out of West Africa.
Don't even try to think it wasn't a man who talked Love to, You.
Get mad at the guy who uses stolen photo's fake names
and can appear on a Webcam as a woman even the voice.
You need to get off line until, You take the time to learn about
scams and scammers as, You didn't even know the simplest
information out there about who does the scams.
Your going to need to know how to spot a scammer in less than
a second. Just because scammers never give up.
Your very same scammer can contact, You again and, You
wouldn't even know it.
They use many fake names, they have many e mail addresses,
they have many different stolen photo's, Etc.
You are guaranteed to be scammed again if, You do not
wake up and learn whats going on.
Just to help get, Your attention, I have right now a scam
from Ghana where they claim to be the Ghana Police trying
to help, Me recover the money, I was scammed out of.
Ghana is only one country where scammers operate daily
nearly without anyone ever getting busted.
So do not look for the Police to do anything any time soon.
I hope for, Your sake, You learn what is going on.
Please stop blaming the Girl's who's pictures are stolen.

the Porn Star who lives in the USA and has nothing to
do with the scams.

give details e mail address, complete information.
e mail header always help's.
Posting pictures of Raven Riley is just a waste of time as there
hundreds of, Her pictures posted here.
Scammers use, Her photo's and nearly 100% of them are men.
So get used to the fact, You were talking Love to a man.
Thats the truth.
I suggest, You take the time to learn about scams and scammers
before making anymore postings.
You are accomplishing nothing right now.
Agent 86, if your recent post was referring to my posting about a 'Tatiana' from Luganskaya oblast, I must clarify some things. The 'Tatiana' I reported here is the same woman whose pictures were sent to me and is the woman I personally met in May 2009 in Lugansk.
I believe, (99% certain), their game is providing a real woman to correspond with and if possible to meet so they can scam men when they visit Ukraine. The 'mark', me, is conned into renting their agency apartment, using their guide, interpreter, driver, and any other things or money that they can separate from the victim. Of course their primary hope is to get the 'pigeon' to send money by Western Union, using all the regular scam stories. But this woman never asked for a penny. Early on in our correspondence she did mention, a subtle suggestion, that if it was too difficult for me to come to Ukraine that maybe she should come here and said she would try to borrow money for her visa an airfare.
As I said, it was a pretty elaborate set up. I should have gone with my instinct and stopped writing when a few times, after examining her letters, my guts were paining me and my adrenalin jumped way up. But I threw caution to the wind because I was probably already 'hooked' and it is my nature to want to believe the best in people. I`ve known that I a naive and I should be more objective, but the sometimes the heart over rules the head. What the hell, I`m human ! Hopefully I will get over the hurt and obsession for revenge and do as you said. Thanks '86', I really do appreciate your wisdom, I need any and all the help I can get.

The only way, I can tell, You apart from the other anonymous
at this point is by your mentioning [ Tatiana, Tana, Anna from Lugansk ]
You identified yourself as [ 2009-08-18, 23:03:00 coltkitt from United States ]
As for, My latest reference to Anonymous from the USA
It is concerning the Raven Riley pictures posted with little
to no information with them.
I have absolutely no way to know if, You posted those on page # 56
and the bottom of Page # 55 ?
When, You do not identify, Yourself by some kind of self given
name like, I do [ Agent 86 ]
It can get pretty confusing if there is more than one Anonymous.
Anyway, My comment was directed at those photo's being posted
in that manner with no information with them.
Please give, Yourself a name or Abbreviation to separate, You
from other postings that would help a lot.
It helps if, You say things that help others understand that,
You may have other postings, You are adding information about.
I hope, You understand why, I made my response in the manner
that, I do.
Kind Regards Agent 86 Maxwell Smart \\'^o^'//

Usually, with Ukrainian gold-dig scammers, it may not even be the girl herself, writing to you, but a translator. The girl they set you up to meet on arrival is only briefed just on the eve of a victim's arrival in Lugansk. She arrives with her interpreter to receive the victim. More info on Gallina P thread http://www.delphifa..10#164571
As you say, sometimes we let the heart overrule the mind, a fault of most humans. (There are some occasional superhumans attacking victims on this site, but they are exceptions, because they never made any mistakes in their lives, having been born with a mouse in their hands and saying google!).
There is like you say, nothing to be gained with an obsession for revenge. Justice can be sought through law enforcement, and other authorities. But something positive can emerge from someones's bad experience. It is, by awakening newbies to do their homework, before it is too late! They don't need to pay the same tuition for the same lessons someone already learnt painfully. Hope you will join forces, and make your contributions, and feel good that you helped some newbie somewhere on our planet!

Agent 86, I apologize for not giving a name for reference to you and other people on this site . I am very new to computers and I am unsure of the proper and safe way to post things on the internet. Also I have not practiced the written language for 30 years or so. I proof read my efforts and sometimes even I cannot understand them.
Thanks for your help, Coltkitt.
Agent 86, I forgot to say that the Tatyana you or someone wrote about is probably not the Tatiana who I wrote of. Of course you probably knew that, but I am often slow to pick up on things and I`m definitely not as smart as I sometimes think I am. Best wishes to all except the scum scammers. I am Coltkitt living in the mountains.
