'These people are so sick believing that I should send money to a fairytale ? It simply makes me laugh ;-) '
Sadly, quite a lot of guys fall for it, you'd be surprised. Otherwise, the scammers would soon give up and find an honest living, then sites like this and guys like us wouldn't be needed. But I don't think it's a good idea to make scam victims feel like fools and idiots for getting scammed. Some of these scammers know which buttons to push. It can happen to anybody. Blame the scammers not the victims. (I notice you have quite a few pics of this girl ;)

I have no words to explain. you can't imagine how great St.-Petersburg is,to be fair I wouldn't like tolive here,a lot of cars,people , voice and pollution.Ugly traffic and people with crazy eyes.When I get off plane in airport St.-Petersburg policeman asked about passport and he looked at me like I am any enemy,I think all people here are a little crazy at terrorism.Life here in St.-Petersburg is expensive. I was going through some shops todayand it is much more expensive than in our town. Food and all the general things.

Well, Hi Eddie (Sweden)
Thanks for the answer, but it wasn't my opinion to make the victims feel like victims. No I am hoping that there will be no more victims.
It's allready too bad these things happened...
So I hope that with every datingsite people FIRST will check all credits of the person, if everything is really okay.
And everyone has to watch out for the 'so-named' money-request !!
NEVER sent money to someone you don't know.
Well the guy from Mexico:
Did you have sended that 850 Dollar to her ?

No, of course, I didn't think you had bad intentions. But you would be surprised at the bullshit that some people post on this website, and also they are very insensitive. It doesn't feel good to be scammed. And what you have posted now is very true.
Personally, I have never been scammed. The very first Russian girl I met on the internet 2 years ago was real and came to visit me in Stockholm. It was quite a problem to get her a visa. Unfortunately, it didn't work out with her and she now lives in the USA but we are still friends. And I am now engaged to another Russian girl, who has her residency interview at the Swedish embassy in Moscow on October 3. I have been to Russia twice in the last year. In the meantime, lots of scammers have tried to contact me with the usually shit, with a number of scam variants, but I was very lucky because I was already familiar with the visa procedures. And I very quickly learned to see the signs. I have also had dialogues with scammers in their 'real' persona, in Russian of course, because most can't, or don't want to, speak any English (otherwise their scam letters would be so much better).
On this website, we are several 'regulars' who come here and post information, give advice to scam victims, help them to trace IPs, some of us bait the scammers (waste their time)....Dirk from Netherlands is our number 1 baiter. This summer we have saved quite a lot of guys from sending money. Even if they were a little suspicious already, some are still convinced that they are writing to a real girl. Unfortunately, too many guys visit this site who have already lost money. But these are also often the ones who help the other most.
Have a nice day!
