I wish to locate the person/persons operating this scam and have them shut down and/or prosecuted.
If we all pool our resources and information together, I think we can make some things happen.
I got all of money sent and Alena was going to get her flight.
Then they email me saying they need boarding fee 1000.00 that was sent and did not hear anything else on her flight info. I also met this Russian woman, Alena Fedorovskaya, on AOL love. We wrote each other for a little over three months. She asked if I would meet her in her country or she could fly to me.
I e-mailed both addresses and got responses from them.
I called one on the phone and got an answering machine using the matching reference name, but I did not leave a message or attempt to call anymore.
I have to admit, they put on a seemingly convincing show, but I never lost sight they were a scam because I would always remind myself of those Western Union receipts I saw.
They gave me two references with e-mail addresses and phone numbers.
I PAID THE 50 FOR HER TRIP AND THE EXTRA 00 SO SHE COULD BOARD THE PLAN FOR IMMIGRATION PURPOSES. My correspondence then became a series of questions confronting them about the article just to see how they would respond.My friend noticed that when all of this started back in December of 2000. I BELIEVED THIS ALL THE WAY, EVEN UP TO THE POINT I SAW HER [PICTURE AND EXACT SAME STORY ON THIS WEB SITE. I WAS EVEN LOOKING FOR A SCAM BUT THIS ONE WAS GOOD. I got some letters back with photos, they would catch me on line around midnight and instant message me, and they even called me on 3 occasions.I asked her about this and she acted like she did not understand. I didn't really mean much because she could have taken a trip there. I CALLED HER SEVERAL TIMES, AND SPOKE WITH HER WELL OVER 15 TIMES. SHE EMAILED ME FROM THE IMPERIAL CAFE AS IN THE OTHER STORIES. About a week after corresponding, the agency wanted me to send 50 to fly her to America. As I was scrambling around trying to come up with the money, I typed in Ekaterinburg on my screen and was surfing trying to see if the agency was listed.Also in another picture of her and her "so called family" her father is wearing Olympics 2000 shirt. She never asked for money besides the 500.00 for immigration and the 200.00 for her hotel because lost her passport. That's when I stumbled onto the Blacklist Web Site and luckily scrolled down far enough to read the article on Alena and her agency.Well, thank you very much and I would like to thank you for a great web site. I got the e-address of the author (as luck had it, he lived only 20 minutes from me), met him and saw with my own eyes his Western Union receipts.
