Hi all ..

I've read through some of the stories at this part of the forum, the love scams, and found myself in a pretty similar spot at the moment.

So I tried a contact website, match.com for a week, and got me four contacts. Two of them were VERY obvious scammers, one playing the american lady trapped somewhere in Nigeria, visiting a friend .. the other, asking for money from Braga, Portugal (she knew no spanish or portuguese!) ..

But very recently, I got a message from a certain Vlad, which soon started sending me 'her' pics. Not an explosive girl, nothing too out of reach, but good looking, enough as not to be a scammer pic.

Two weeks after first emails, she claims to be having some month vacations, and has stated that she wants to come meet me, her love, and will ask what procedures are to met at the local travel agency. Still haven't come with the 'i'm 1000 bucks short', but I'm now quite sure she will. She has asked for personal details to apply for a visa, so she already has my cell phone number and my mother's address.

She claims to be from Kostroma, a town by the river Volga in Russia.
She is using a yahoo address, but all email headers say the ip she sends them from is somewhere in VA, USA .. go figure!

She translate all my messages from spanish into Russian, and she comes up with very garbled messages in spanish when she replies .. and wrong line breaks, etc .. but claims to know some spanish ..

Did I escaped the scam? Can I get my first mark by asking her for a silly pic? What do you guys think?

Before you ask for a silly pic, or make any further continuing contacts with her - - does she have your personal details, such as a real e-mail address? If so, I suggest dropping her.

Hi, elQueFaltaba, and welcome to Eater! Very Happy

If you are corresponding with her with your real-life email addy, and as you have given her some personal details (like your mother's address), it's best to drop her immediately.

If you want to bait the vlads and get silly pics from them, make up a character and get a gmail or hushmail account for that character and set up a profile on a free dating site. You'll get contacted again - and who knows, maybe this one will contact you in your new "incarnation." Wink

Thats what the fun is all about, isn't it?

I might even do that sometimes for fun .. i'll keep you updated then ..
If anyone is interested in the messages (although in spanish), I'm willing to share them for 'the greater good' ... [could be hours of fun to try and translate back from an already automatically translated text]

As others have said, IF you have used any personal details, Drop her, and block her e-mail eddy,
The hole idea of this is to do it safely, never forget your dealing with criminals

I,ve run your photo's through Tineye, and come up with zip, which doesn't mean she's not a scammer, or someone's using her photo's for scamming. You could try a search on Romance.com. quite often that will pick up the scam for you.. with word for word details..

If you want to get into this , sign up, with a SAFE e-mail and character name on MY beloved.net.com and within a week you will be falling over them

And while this is fun, sometimes a little time spent on research, will give you the info to know just what your dealing with.

It is also wise to sign up for a mentor, They will assist you, and make it far more rewarding, then stumbling along on your own. Until you get a format worked out, as to how these people work.

Well .. there has been no need in not contacting Vlad again.
Ever since I gave away my name and address, there hasn't been any more messages coming from 'her' ..

What should I expect them to do with that info? Should I take any kind of measures?

Thanx for your interest guys ..

They have proxy servers that report what ever ip they like.

I,ve just gone back through some records, and I have the picture of the sheila, in the car with the seat belt. it replied to my catcher account on "my beloved.net" but I couldn't get any further replies.

But the Vlads are a lot more selective, and you can also loose them just as quick.
