"I received and email from her via AOL (which I did not save unfortunately). .  She stated she had seen my profile on “some site but could not remember which”. I was suspicious from the start. Just for fun, I replied to her initial email from another email address. As expected, I got identical emails #1 and #2. She never answered any specific question so I decided to play it out and wait for the scam. Well, I got it (#4). She requested $2,200 USD to travel to the US to see me on a tourist visa. I know that is not possible.

I am attaching pictures and a URL that was in her first email. Here is what she gave me in email #2. I do not have her first email

Here is email #2

Hello dear John,

I am glad to hear from you again. Today I was thinking a lot
about our acquaintance and I came to idea that the Internet
is great - it helps people to find brother's soul even so
far away - on different corner of the worrld!

It's so pitty that I don't have Internet access at home, but
thanks God there is one Internet-cafe not far from my house.
I have my own PC but there is no phone at our flat. Here in
the phone access is of big rarity in the private apartments.

I live in small Ukrainian town of
Ternopil , it is located in
Western part of the country. Nearest big city to us is Lviv,
the other beautiful cities near Ternopil are Rivne,
Lutsk ,
Khmelnitsky .

Although my home town is small, it is the regional center
(Ternopil oblast). Oblast means "province" in your language.

I live with my parents yet. My father is a dentist, as I told you
already and my mother works as manager in "Galichina" hotel
placed on the coast of beautiful lake in the old city center of Ternopil.

She speaks good English, German, Polish and a bit of French
and Spanish. So she got this job thanks her talents to foreign
languages. Sometimes she is even able to visit
other countries on hotel business exchange basis. She was
already in
Poland , Czech Republic , Germany and Slovakia .

Good for her. I've never been abroad yet. I hope to see the
world a bit too. I can speak English, Slovakian and Polish.
And of course I speak Russian and Ukrainian. This part of
Ukraine I live in was added to the USSR after World War II only.
That's why our local people still keep the tradition to speak several
European languages of our neighbours -
Poland for example
was always present here in the past.

But English I studied during my secondary and university
education - other languages I learned "in the streets" and
can speak them since my childhood.

I have a sister Oksana. She is married and lives in
with her husband. Both of them are scientists and work at
Volyn State University (faculty of History
and Etnography). They have daughter - 6 years old Dasha.

As for me, I was never married and I don't have any children.

My sister comes to visit us sometimes, but not often, because
she is very busy with their scientific researches and has
many etnographic trips all over
Ukraine . After Ukraine
became independent in 1991 our state donates such researches
because Soviet power always tried that people forget their
traditions and nacional attitudes. They proclaimed new nation
- Soviet people. Now it is different and Ukrainians slowly
come back to their national pride.

I'm not sure is it interesting for you everything I'm writing.
As for me, I'm really interesting in everything about you, your
nationality and your country.
Our friendship meens a lot for me and I want to understand and
feel you like myself - like my second half - to be correct.

Yours Angelika




And here is the scam. Email # 4

My darling,

Thank you very much for warm words. I'm happy that we are
on the same wave in our thinking, aims and dreams. It became
important for me to feel your presence in my life. It
brought me a kind of insight to review my ordinary everyday
life here in Ternopil.

As I need you so much, and you need me the same way strong,
I believe, we should not lose any minute staying divided anymore.
We just have to meet each other in person and start our
relationship in real life.

Earlier I have found out how we could meet. But now I believe,
the right time has came for us to become more than virtual
partners. I can fly to you with the help of travel agency.
Several agencies offer tourist trips to
America .

The fastest and most reliable service is at "Intertours" - they
can prepare my travel documents, flight tickets and travel
insuarance in one week. My mother told me they are very reliable,
because several her friends used this service to come to
America .

They charge 3700 dollars for complete service including opening an
international travel passport and three-months US visa plus 
tickets and hotel reservation in
America (which I do not need but
it is impossible to obtain
US tourist visa without hotel
reservation). And they are fast because it will take only one week
till we'll be together.

I could spend for this trip 1500 US$, that I have.
Do you think you could find the rest 2200 US$?
That is my proposition.
Actually, it is more normal for my country that the man pays for
everything himself. But I'm not agree with that. I have some money
myself and my profession is also very usefull and popular in
any country. I'm not rich but I'm able to earn the money and I'd
like to spend them as I want.

We don't need to be in hurry. We have time to get know each
other better.
But as for me, I'm sure that one minute of real meeting gives us much
correct impression that one year writing each other.
Any how, I think I know you enough via letters and I'm ready to

Let me know what do you think about my proposition.

I guess we are enough grown up and persons to do what we
feel to do.

If you feel the same as I do, of course.
But if no, I don't think we should meet at all.

Yours Angelika
