Dating scam from Kazan, Russia - Part 1

I would like to warn fellow males from a scam artist, located in Russia.

Click to see more..
I had a profile posted on an American dating web site and a female from my area answered me. Her letter was a few lines long, in good English and she seemed honest and cute, so I replied.

The letter said she had a read-only trial account and would not be able to receive messages, so she included a yahoo email address. She asked me to write to this yahoo email address. I did this and a few days later her trial account was gone, she explained that she deleted it because she found me. (that is what she answered, when I asked her about it)

This girl claimed to live in Kazan, Tartastan, 26 years old and called herself Barbi.
There was something suspicious about her letters, in particular I always had the
impression that she did not really read mine every time. Sometimes she wrote
personal, matching replies, then sometimes not. her photos of which she sent
about 25 so far, had number like 5.jpg, 6.jpg, 35.jpg etc.

Yesterday I did a query for some phrases of some of her emails and found them
posted on 2 other web sites. Apparently she wrote identical letters to other guys
using different names and different pictures. She or he asked those guys for money,
supposedly for tickets or visa paperwork. I guess I am lucky that she never asked
me for any money. However, I felt fooled when I saw "my" emails had also been
sent in parts to other guys.

For that reason I will post her here letters. I know that parts of these letters
have been posted on 2 other sites, but not all.
I include the full headers in the first email. The sender comes from a russian
dial-up but in another email I sent her a URL to one of my web sites and apparantly
"she" uses some sort of satellite DSL for the downstream, the IP number was
84.xx (to be filled in later).

I continued to correspond with Rufina/Afrodita after I realized it was a scam. She called me and said that the customs wouldn't let her through without $500, which if I sent it to her she would immediately return when she arrived her. I told her I couldn't. In later emails, I asked her about coming to where I live. She said yes, of course. Then, I emailed her a letter telling her of some of the sex we would have when she got here. She responded that she was upset, dissapointed that I thougt she'd do those things and was not a prostitute. I replied that she was a prosititute because she took my money under false pretenses. I demanded it back. She said that she didn't need it and would promptly return it. I replied that she better (all through emails, of course). Her last response was....

Fack you PIG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Want me to catch? Try!!! All of you
the Americans the silly people!!! All of you a pig. We shall revenge
behind our girl, who have disappeared at you. You heard such histories
when the girl leaved for America and got there in slavery? Her
transformed there into the prostitute. You cattles

Strange that she continued to correspond even after I told her that she was a scammer. So this is what the scammer thinks? How many of you would like to string her up with piano wire by her toes?

I have one: Natalia. Her mail address is She was spamming in I replied her message, gave her my mail and she replied me with couple of pictures, all illustrating her in beautiful places with a mini & sexy skirt. After mailing two or three times, she told me that I am the best man in the world and she loves me. However, she hasn't written me for six days. Think that she has found someone new (because I asked her if she was a typical russian scum, or not. She answered 'no', but it doesn't sound right to me). Now, I will keep informing you.

Well if you read all of the comments that everyone has posted and still believe that there is a Russian girl over that wants to make you happy and love you long time!!(haahaahaa) Then you deserve to get scammed!!! All of my e-mails that I got read just like the one's posted to this site!! I have had three different scammer's sending me
e-mails there names are Tatyana , Osksama , Zaika ! I told every one of them that if they wanted to prove they were who they say they are to send a picture of them with there family or a picture of them holding a sign saying Hello XXXXX (My Name)
Also if you notice allot of them will tell you how close they are to there families so I ask them for a photo of them with there family!! Guess what havenet heard back from them in about 4 days now!(heheehe) But I have enjoyed the photos that these scammers are using!! That is what made me suspect that this was a scam first hand because of the Model type pic's all had the same appeal !! Anyways Bro's dont get fooled by the FOOLS
