Another dating / chat scam - USA/ Nigeria connection

Last week I got contacted via my profile on a dating web site. The person had a temporary profile only with no picture posted and sent me a one-liner including her yahoo address and she asked me to add her on the yahoo messenger.

I was bored so I fulfilled her request.

Her profile had said she was from Illinois, USA. I live in California. Once we chat on Y! messenger, she says she just left Madrid/ Spain and is in West Africa now.

Supposedly she works for a diamond company which is owned by her step dad. She lives with her daughter since her husband (or kids father, I do not recall) left her after the kid was born. Here are her photos - I am not quite sure that they are really HER photos:

She also tells me that she is on bad terms with her step dad since he asked her for sex. (If that's her real photos, I might ask her for sex also.)
During the chat she was kind of evasive, did not answer my questions but instead asked me questions herself. After about 30 minutes she said she'd have to leave West Africa soon and wants to come to the Bay Area (which is why she had written me) and whether she could stay at my place for a week or two until she had gotten herself a place.

She wanted to see photos of my house (I mailed her two).

During the following week we briefly chatted maybe 3 times. No deep conversation, this woman does not spell well, and obviously does half a dozen chats parallel.

I asked her to visit a web site that I host so that I could trap her IP number. It was

I used two different tools (web sites) to identify the location she was coming from. Most web sites reported this IP as in London, UK. One web site located it as CAPE GIRARDEAU, MISSOURI.

If you ever want to do this kind of check, grab the IP number from email headers and use a web site like on it. You need to make your email program or web client display all headers, to see the 'Originating IP'. Yahoo's email client offers this. I do not know about AOL or hotmail.

She claims to be on AOL (which I found strange, does AOL offer service in West Africa?)

Yesterday she started talking how her step-dad does not send the money he is supposed to send. A kind of allowance instead of a paycheck. Don't ask me for an explanation of this concept.

I did not like to hear her talk about bills that she cannot pay. I'm kind of allergic to this talk when I know a person from 60 minutes of chatting only :-)

Anyway, today she asked me directly to Western Union her the money, $750. As I am posting this, I am still chatting with her. A copy of today's chat is below.

Here is another scammer who I came across on a well known free dating sites....tonns of pics of this girl everywhere! across different countries, descriptions...etc. No idea who really owns the photo, but she sure has been around! One female who took the identity was from Ghana. We chat a few times on yahoo, but I cut her off because she almost immediately wanted money and a free cell-phone (apparently cause she wanted to call be directly). The funny thing was that she didnt want a cheap cell-phone, something over US$500!!! Imagine, I dont even own a $200 cell...!!! she was pretty persistent - kept telling me she was falling in love with me - after only 2 LETTERS! This one took the scammer-cake for me so far.

Hopefully the real owner of this image will come forward and reclaim her photo identity.

well here is another stab at someone trying to scam money out of some poor hard working individual. All in all this girl comes off as so sweet and you know I really wanted to help her but hell will freeze over before I send a paycheck to Russia , if that is really where this person nis at.Just wanted to post her pic and her letters so maybe no one else will fall for this scam... I will have to say that I did enjoy making her think that i sent the money. I can only imagine the look of disgust after her third trip to western union looking for money and three times coming home empty handed....LOL LOL LOL ROFL

Hello,hello,hello, thank you for the reply!(so short one)
I am so happy that you have decided to write me. I will try to explain why I want to continue our
writing , please forgive my broken english.
you should know that it is my first time I try to correspondence with a man in virtual space.
I want to explain why I do it. I live in Russia and I am going to work abroad for three months or so and I would like to meet a nice man
to be my guide and be very good and close friend to spend free evenings with.I think that it is hard enough
to live in foreign town without friend and I have never been
abroad. I don't know anybody in your country and I think we could have a lot of fun together because I think I need hot man, males here are too cold and
usually too drunk to have fun should know I live in small town here in Russia, I am afraid to be
lost in some foreign city. I will work in shop or in cafe. I will know exactly later I have to test my English first and
my future job depends on how good it is. It is the programm 'Work and travel' is avialable for students ,firm the Star travel(
colects all the documents to confirm that
I am student. I will get J -1 visa and I get 'Job Offer'. This gives me a choice to get job in cafes or shops in any city of USA or Canada.
The agency helps to get the visa,work permission and all travel documents and they will
help me to get job. I will have place to live(rent room) and enough good salary they tell that I will earn good money .
I think it is so great because I can earn here in my town about 100$ a month as waitress to work from morning till evening.
It is special programm for young people who wants to work abroad and I think it is the right
way for me, and I think that I will be able to change my life and see many wonderful things and just see different life.
I am full of plans and different dreams. You should know that I have real dark brown hair
and brown eyes. I am sure that you will be not disappoined to meet me in the real life if we meet.
Well, I will close this letter and I do hope to get your reply.
Maybe my letter sounds a little crazy but I am not sure I know what to say in first letter .I just want to meet good, kind and sexy man .
I will leave my town in a week or so to travel to moscow to complete all travel things and I will travel from moscow to my future job.
I will work all day and I think we could share evenings together to get to know each other better. If you have any interest to meet me I will reply.
I just don't want to be alone in the evenings and at nights, and I would like to be sure
in advance that somebody waits for me! It is just a woman wish!
I will tell you all details about me and my life if you have an interest to meet me and free time to spend with me, I know that usually the men are very
busy and I don't want to bother you if you prefer to work a lot. So many barriers on this way.

With best regards...
Ekaterina ( this is the right writing of my name in English)

PS I Send a few pictures. I think you should know how I look like.

Hello !!! Thank you for your reply. I was very glad to see your reply in my inbox mail.
That would be right if I tell you more about me and my life because we have a chance to meet in real life
and thus we need to get to know each other better and you please also tell me more about yourself, ok?

I am just a simple and ordinary girl with my own interests, hobbies and tastes.
I guess I will start from telling you about things which
also want to know from you, so you'll see my questions.
As you know my name is Ekaterina and my last name is Musinova.
I am 26 years old and on 4 February I will be 27. I am about 168 cm tall and my weight is about 53kg.

My body sizes are 96-62-91cm. I have brown hair and brown eyes
which you can see from my photos.

I know that many women abroad have possibility to improve their bodies and faces
and they look so beautiful. Unfortunately it is impossible here in Russia because even though
we live in Russia, this country is still far from civilization.
But I still think that natural beauty is far better.

I live with my aunt, uncle and niece because I don't have parents ( they died long ago in a bus crush).
Unfortunately we live in a two-room small appartment and it is not very
comfortable and not convenient. Honestly there is nothing good in the fact that I was
born and live in a small town of Russia.
There is no chance for a good living and it is very hard to fnd a job here.
All young people leave towns and go to big cities searching for work but unfortunately there is also
no luck for them in big cities since nobody is waiting for them there.
Living in Russia is living 'all by myself'. It is a good but cruel school of life.

I don't smoke and drink socially, my preference in alcohol is red wine,
but only a glass or maybe two. I tried to smoke when I was younger. Silly me!
But I think almost everybody try to smoke when you are a 13 years old, right?
I try to take care of my body and face as much as it is possible. I wasn't born yesterday and
I know that almost all 'men love women by their eyes', I mean this or that way woman's
appearence is very important for a man.

Speaking about my trip. I will come to your country this month but I don't know when exactly,
I know that I will have all documents to travel soon and I will travel to Moscow later this week
again to complete all travel preparations.
I will get a visa and buy a ticket and then fly to your country. I even don't know where exactly
I am flying because I haven't decided yet. I can choose almost any city to stay that
is why I need to know the name of the nearest international airport to you.
I just want to have somebody waiting for me at the airport and not to be alone there.
I will fly to your airport right from Moscow and I hope you will want to meet me at the airport and
be my guide and besides it would be great to meet with you face to face and spend some time together.
I know that it is not an easy thing as it might seem but there is nothing impossible, right?

I will be more then glad to know that you understand me and my thoughts and you are
with me in this question, but if not, then please tell me that you're not
interested in me and don't want to meet me, ok?

I think I shoud close this letter. It is not good that I don't have a computer at home
and have to send my letters to you from the Internet cafe which is far from my home.
I wish I could talk to you on the phone, but unfortunately we don't have possibility for international calls
( I can't call you and you can't call me because we have here four-digital phone numbers).
It is possible to make international phone calls only from big cities.

Ok, that is enough for today. If I didn't tell you something which is important for you or maybe missed something,
don't be angry. Just ask me and I will answer for sure.

I think I will be here in the Internet cafe tomorrow because I have a lot of preparations before
going to Moscow. I hope when I come here, I will see one more letter from you.
Please write me and don't forget me!!!

Ekaterina Musinova

my home address:
Kemerovskaya Region,
Brachatskiy village,
Lenina str. 55

Hello hello again ! I feel so lucky because I have met such a man from the first time and I will do all
my best to meet you in real life soon. Ok, this letter is going to be long too, so be ready to read it since I want you to know everything about me. I just don't want any misunderstanding between us.

I guess you have a right to know that I am not perfect and I am not an angel, I mean I am just an ordinary girl with all ordinary human problems. Sometimes I can show my character and of course I don't expect you to be an angel too, I just want to meet a kind man. I am an easy-going person and can forgive almost everything, but there is one thing. I hate drunkers and rude men. Oh, by the way I was rereading my previous letter to you. I made a mistake.
When I asked you about string drinks, I mean strong drinks.

I love water and my favourite thing is swimming. I wish I could live near some sea or a ocean. You know, I have a dream. I want to see an ocean. I was always dreaming about it, sometimes I even think that I was a fish in my previous life ( hopefully some dolphin but not a shark).

I have graduated the Siberia State Univercity and I have a high degree or a license in trainers faculty and I can work as a fitness trainer or dance trainer. I like my profession and I wish I could work on this subject in some fitness club. I think it is very important to have a job which can give you not only a good salary but also good mood and get a pleasure from your job. What do you think? Unfortunately it is very hard to find such kind of job here because we have only a couple of such clubs and there is no vacancy.

Ok, some things which I also like and don't like to do:
I love cooking and like make BBQ. I so much want to have a house of my own and make BBQs for my close people. I also dream to have a house with a fire place. I love cooking something new and something special.
My friends are telling me that I need to work at a reastaurant.
I also love warm weather and I hate winters. Here in Russia winters are long and very cold.

I have never been married but I hope someday, I also don't have kids though I already have an experience of a baby sitter. Sometime ago I had to stay at home because I couldn't find a job and I was helping my aunt with my little niece.
I hope one day to find that special one and it is impossible here in Russia because men are real drunkers and very rude.
You know for me age difference deosn't matter.
I think it is better that you are older then me because older men are more experienced and
they know what they want to get from life.
I hate evil people and I hate politics.
Last few years I associate politics with wars and as you can see from my letter I hate violance and wars.

What I like in a man? Faithfulness and honesty. He has to be open-minded and kind-hearted, also easy-going. And I believe that there cannot be any games in relationship between a man and a woman. It is very important for a man to be a kind man. Maybe you think I am naive but I do belive that love and kindness makes our world still alive. Are you a kind man??? I do believe you are, because soon I am flying to the USA and meet you there.
Why I chose you? I am an honest person and expect the same from you, so I am telling the truth.
I found you at the site by chance. Telling from the beginning of the story I know a woman who is on a dating site. That profile
wasn't mine, it was a profile of that woman, but she let me find someone from the dating site from her profile.
I don't know how to use the site, so I found you by chance and wrote you. I didn't know what will happen, I didn't know if
you write me or not. But I am glad that we met each other because I like you now really!!! You look handsome!
In my opinion, people do get intimate quickly on the Internet as there is less shyness while typing
as opposed to face to face communication, therefore it is the best way to get to know one another better.
What do you think?

When I am in the USA I will rent some room near my future work and hopefully we shall spend free time together.
I have a question. Is it ok for you if we live together. I mean if we like each other or maybe if there will be something more then just be friends. I think I will improve my English with your help and it will give us a chance to get to now each other better, who knows... We'll see. I write you without translator, but I don't have a experience in talking in English face to face. Do you have a big bed? (I am just joking).

I have a driving license but I am not sure if I am able to drive there in the USA, maybe you will give me a few good lessons.
My head is full of plans and ideas...

I am sorry for a long letter but I just wanted you to know me better. I am flying from Kemerovo's airport to Moscow in a few hours. My flight will take almost five hours!!! I hope I will write you tomorrow.
As soon as I arrive in Moscow I will have to find a hotel or rent a room to live in before my flight to the USA. I have already been in Moscow and I know all these things, so it will not be a great problem for me. By the way when I was in Moscow last time I did a couple
of professional photos and I hope when I come there, my photos will be ready.
I was told it will take about a couple more days to complete all my travel arrangements and I do hope to see you in a few days already!!! And even don't think to look at other girls since I am the best one for you! ( joke)

Your Ekaterina

Well, hello my dear!!!
It is me again. I cannot believe I am in Moscow already. It was a wonderful flight for me and everything went well. You know on the board of the plane I was given a glass of red wine and you know what? I have never had such tasty wine before.
Moscow is incredibly big city and it takes for about few hours to get from one end of the city to another and the traffic is horribly heavy here. You know though Moscow is a capital of our big country, it is just like some other country. Different people, life and the prices are very very high. People here are very rude and angry, they always rush in a hurry and always trying to be cautious.

When I got off the plane and was waiting for baggage a policeman came up to me and asked me to show my passport. They are all crazy here because of the terrorism. I understand that they are cautious but still I think it is humiliating. I took a taxi from the airport. You know it is not like usual taxi, it is like a small bus. It takes about ten people and costs much less then a usual car taxi and besides this 'bus-taxi' is very comfortable and the driver was very polite which happens seldom in Moscow.He even was telling us about Moscow and monuments while taking us down to the destionation.

Life is very expensive here. I was shopping today buying some food and all every-day food costs a few times expensive then in my place. All the rest general things cost a lot of money too.
I rent a room in the appartment and an old woman asked me to be cautious when I fly to the USA but I made up my mind and I will fly to you and meet you because you are a kind and good man and won't do me any harm, I feel it.
I am sorry if my letter sounds strange to you but everything is mixed up in my head and I am so excited about my trip. My feelings are overwhelming me.

I was also at the agency today and my trip information is not ready yet, but they promised I will have this info on Monday morning. So, once again, I need you to give me the name of the state and the exact full name of the airport because there are similar names of the airports in different states. I don't want to arrive in some other airport. I also need to know your full name and your full telephone number (including country code) in case we ( I mean you and me) get lost or something.

On Monday morning I will write you with all the information. Excited??? Me too!!!
Well, I will close this letter. Please write me as soon as possible.
See you soon!!!

Ekaterina with a great kiss from Moscow!!!

hello,this is the info I have got from agency and I think I have the problem.and it seems to me I need your help because I must
get this flight or I will miss the date of the beginning of my job and nearest possible flight for me only at the end of February and I hate to imagine if something goes wrong, I have done too much to lose all now. I know it sounds like I am pooroutsider
but you see I have not time or somebody to ask about help and I have nobody to help me, you know my relatives gave me all that we could collect for my travel.
I hate to ask but now I don't have any other choice.
The problem is that everything is getting more exspensive because after New Year people get their vacations and so many people want to travel abroad, and I also found out that now I need to have round-trip ticket ( the return flight can be changed) , it is new rule from this year. I thought that I have to buy only one-way trip. I promise that I will return all the money I borrow as soon as I can. I will get salary and collect the sum you lend me, it is only money ,and I think that it is not too hard for you to help me. You see I have such chance only once in my life. I know you are kind man and I do hope you will be able to help me.
I was in the bank to try to ask them about credit but they tell I have to have something to leave them and I have nothing to leave because I have only some clothes, some parfume and it is all I have, and small gift for you from russia with love People in the bank gave me an advise that if I have good friend (I told them about my problems and you ) that you may send me money very fast,
they tell that there is the system western union and it works very fast,
I am not sure I know how it works but they tell you need only my name and address here in moscow and
I have to have only passport to get it in any bank of Moscow and only I can get the money when you send it,I think it is good way and like I was explained it is very safe and takes a few minutes only.
I have about 500$ yet and I need about 900$ from your side. After getting money
I will make all payment and I will have an interview, it is a must.
I also have good news!!! They say I can stay longer than three months I can stay about six months for first time.
I will have to change the date of my returning flight only. I also want to say that you don't have to worry if you don't like me or something in my charachter
I will not disturb you, you know I will rent room to live and it is only your wish to share your time with me, and money is money ,I will return it all anyway.
dear sorry for such a cold letter but I am getting crazy to think that you can just don't reply and I will stay here without any result of all my hopes and dreams , and hard work too.

Country : Russia
City: Moscow
Address: Krasnogvardeyskaya 15 kor.4 - 193
postal code (zip) : 117303
Full name: Ekaterina Musinova (this is the right writing in English)
You should put this info on their list and send me info when you send me the money.
