# Details: She asked me 200 USD for passport and visa expenses (150 for passport and 50 for visa) to come and meet me in Athens, Greece. I checked with the Hellenic consulate in Odessa and confirmed the visa cost, i.e. 35 euro (=50 USD). I fell in her trap because she was very willing to meet me either in Kiev or in Athens. So I chose Athens, being more convenient for me. It would save me the hotel expenses plus the lost time in case she wouldnt turn up or loose interest and leave.rnRight after I sent this amount she turned up after two days and asked for another 250 USD to cover the expenses for the paper work and 100 USD or the trip to the Hellenic consulate in Odessa to apply for the visa. Note that the distance Nikolaev - Odessa is aprox. 150km only! Then I refused. After a week I asked her to send me a scanned copy of the passport but no reply.



# Date: 2009-08-31
I sent her the money (200 USD) through Western Union on 12 Aug 2009 (MTCN: 6765777806)

I tried to report the scam to the web site but it seems there is no way I can contact their support team.

Bellow is our correspondence with headers.

MY 1ST LETTER
Good day Marina!

I am very pleased to meet you in this electronic world and I really hope that we will have the opportunity to meet in real life very soon. Thank you for replying to my message. I saw your profile and I liked it very much. You are a very pretty woman! I am sure that many men have told you this.

My name is xxxx (as you already know), I am Helene and I was born raised and live in Athens. I would describe myself as a joyful, playful and full of energy man, smart, open-minded, thoughtful and easygoing with a good clever sense of humour. I am a simple person and I try to enjoy all pleasant thinks life can offer me. I like simple pleasures like a company of friends, a sunny morning away from the city or a bright sunset, a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, a cool breeze on my face in a warm summer night, staring at the sea or swimming in it, visiting new places, travelling and learning about different cultures and people, listening to my favourite music, etc.

I am an engineer by profession and single. I was never married before because until now I have not been a family oriented person. But recently I changed my attitude towards marriage and now I am looking for a special woman. My beloved would be an open-minded, well-cultured, charming, kind, passionate and sexy woman ready to make a life commitment with the man of her heart.

If you are interested I can tell you a lot more about myself and I would like to get to know you. Perhaps we have a common destiny! I hope we will start a correspondence and I will be waiting to hear from you soon.

Yours truly,
xxxx

MY 5TH LETTER

Today ……
Therefore you will come to Athens as we agreed in the end of August. We have to fix the days soon (maybe tomorrow) because an early booking is always cheaper and we will have more choices on the availability of flights. It will have to be sometime between 25/8 - 13/9. We will discuss this tonight. I would like to do the booking tomorrow if possible. Give me a missed call tonight. When you come I will make everything possible to make your stay here as pleasant and interesting as possible.

Tomorrow I am going to send you 200$ through Western Union.
I will need you to give me your full name and home address today. When I make the transfer I am going to give you the Money Transfer Control Number to go and collect the money.

Please make this call to the Hellenic Embassy and verify the time needed to get a visa and ask if there could be any possible delays or problems in this process, OK? I will provide you with any kind of help you may need.

Although I know it may be hard for you to type, please make efforts to send me letters with your thoughts and tell me more about you. Until we meet we have to get to know each other better. Talking on the phone is just not enough.

Kiss,
K.

SCAMMER’S 8TH LETTER

Letter


Subject: Re: kiss you

My nice I today half of the day spent on organization of our meeting. I rang in embassy and I have dictated the list a document which me it is necessary to have with me in embassy when I shall go to Odessa on conversation. Aside from that documents which you me to send me it is necessary with do the insurance, which cost(stand)s 60 dollars, also me it is necessary to pay the cost of the visa in Greece, which cost(stand)s 35 euro, also me it is necessary to have a documents with work about my salary and give the documents on premises (the copies notarial notorized). I have heard that one document that his(its) notarial to notarize cost(stand)s 50 dollars, but me their it is necessary 2.
Also I have heard that me on road before Odessa it is necessary beside 100 dollars, since before embassy this it is necessary to go 3 hours on machine(train).
I did not know that it is necessary so much documents. Why you I have not said. I on considered this me it is necessary else 320-350 dollars on organization of the whole journey to you.
On bell me us it is necessary all discuss


MY 9TH LETTER
My nice you asked me to send you 200 dollars for your passport AND your visa, 150 dollars for passport and 50 dollars (=3D 35 euros) for your visa - see your message bellow. And now you are asking another 35 euros for visa??? I knew that visa costs 35 euros (=3D50 dollars) and that was included in the amount I sent you!! That is what we agreed.

Are you telling me that you don=92t have 60 dollars for the insurance and enough money to travel to Odessa for your visa? Do you need 100 dollars to travel to Odessa??? You don=92t have to take a train, take a bus. Everybody knows that bus tickets are very cheap and it would take 1- 1.5 hours to go there by bus =96 very easy. But even a train does not cost that much and especially in Ukraine. I have travelled too much in my life to know things like that.

Do you seriously think I can believe that apart from the 200 dollars I sent you, now you need 300-350 dollars IN UKRAINE just to prepare your travel to another country??? Do you expect me to believe this? Also do you want me to believe that each piece of paper will cost you 50 dollars? And that you need 100 dollars for 2 papers??? Nowhere in the world can happen this. The papers you need to submit for the visa are the same like mine. And to me they cost nothing. How come they cost 50$ each in Ukraine?

Dear I want to remind you that I trusted a complete stranger and sent
200$ to you. Maybe I am stupid. I don=92t even know you; all I have from you is just 2 letters. And no matter how many times I asked you to send me a letter so I can get to know you better, you never did. But you always “remember” to send me letters concerning the money you need, yes??

My nice if you were serious about our meeting then you should be prepared to make a few sacrifices from your side. Because I am making many sacrifices from my side just to meet you. And I really want to
meet you because I am willing to pay some costs if I am going to be happy in my life. Your trip here would cost me at least 800 dollars (passport + visa + ticket) PLUS the telephone costs PLUS you expenses for your stay here PLUS the presents I would give you. You are invited to spend one week in one of the most fascinating and expensive cities in Europe at absolutely no cost to you. I am covering your air transport you passport and visa costs and your stay in Athens and you cannot even cover the basic travel costs in Ukraine? Is that what you are telling me?

And one last question:
YOU SHOULD KNOW ALL THIS INFORMATION AND COSTS AND LET ME KNOW BEFORE
I SEND YOU THE MONEY TO START THE PASSPORT PROCESS.
WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME IN THE BEGINNING?
Your attitude was not correct.

K.

Subject: Re: Hello pretty woman!

My nice. Why you me not to write and not to ring?


MY 10TH LETTER
I have already sent you 200$ for passport and visa.
Then you asked me another 350$ (???) just to prepare your trip and for 2 documents.
I cannot believe that you do not have enough money to make your documents and to go to Odessa for your visa.
I can see that you are not interested in me. You are interested in the money I send you.


SCAMMER’S 10TH LETTER

Subject: Re[4]: Hello pretty woman!

My nice, this not truth I very serious to you. 50 dollars cost(stand)s one document since I his(its) take with work about salary and place live, they in russian language, in it is necessary to translate into english and notarize notarial. The Notary takes 50 dollars for the document. This truth, I not to tell lies. I very serious. I can beside 100 dollars on try to take on work, but probably not more so I wait your decision.


MY 11TH LETTER
My nice I remind you that it was you who asked for a meeting so early, not me.
How many times on the phone have I asked you to check at the embassy about the papers BEFORE the passport? But you didn't do it. All you wanted is the 200$ !! And now you come to me and say that you don't have enough money for your trip???? Is it my fault? I helped you with your passport and visa (maybe you already had a passport, how do I know?) and I had no obligation to do this. And you didn't even thank me for that!! :-)) Is your passport ready now? It surprises me that you didn't say a word about it.

Moreover, about your work and salary paper, you don't need to translate it and go to a notary. I checked with the embassy. The accept it in russian !!!!!

If you really want to meet me get your visa and come. You are most welcome. By the way the flight ticket is now 80 euros more expensive than last week :-))
And who is going to bear this cost? Who else? Me of course! Thank you!


SCAMMER’S 11TH LETTER
my nice why you me not to write and not to ring? I much want to hear your voice once again.


MY 12TH LETTER
Hi honey!
you didn't answer to my letter. Why?
How can I call you? You have to give me some answers first.
And what about your passport? Is it ready? You haven't said anything yet.
If it is ready then send me a scanned copy please.


… and silence thereafter.
