hello my name is edward and i have been in contact with this lady elya. i have the same pictures she sent me and more. i have all pictures and letters. she wanted to come to see me and was asking for money and i refused to send her money but i am still in contact with her. she emails me at times. she wanted money for her visa and said she has paid half the money for it and needed to pat the remaining balance. when i told her no she said she will be in trouble if she do not pay the remaining money, big trouble. now that i refused her she has gone back to regular conversations like it never happened i guess trying to find another way to get money from me. i am in contact with another lady but i am sure she is also a scammer. i already been scammed by another lady some $2,000.00 dollars, lesson learned. i met elya on a dating service called LAVA LIFE. she writes very long letters and almost never short. she tells me she writes from the internet cafe but i knew that was a lie because she told me when the cafe closes and she emails me at different times of the day and night. i am more aware now of this business they are in and i know now to never send money. beware of this lady, she is beautiful if this is her or some guy using her pictures. i entered a world i never knew existed but i am aware of their business and that is to get our money. here are some more photos of her. she still writes me. but she is not getting any money. she told me her full name is ELVIRA MASALIMOVA.
