Ekaterina Strelkova (Yoshkar-ola, Mari-El, Russia)My name is Terry, Im a 42year old single American. I got a response from Katya through Dreammates.com. I have been in contact with her now for about 3 weeks. She writes about how she wants to marry me. How she has a girlfriend who works in the tourist company, and she promised to help with the information on getting her vise & passport. After about 2 weeks she asked for $500. I did not send money, I kept checking on what she had to do to get a passport & visa & i wasnt like she was saying, Thats when I knew it was a scam. I decided to send lowers to the address she gave to see what would happen, there was no such address. Like the scam warning page said, she would not answer a lot of questions, & the letters they showed were the same I was getting. She wanted the money sent Western Union to; Ekaterina Strelkova. 17 Petrova st., apt. 18 Yoshkar-Ola, Mari-El, 424000 Russia The Western Union office address: Guta Bank 8 Vashskaya st. Yoshkar-Ola Mari-El Russia I havent heard from her since I did not send the money when I said I would. I just found this site tonight & found her on the black list. I have already written to [email protected] & [email protected] & now the black list. I will file a report with the FBI. Her ad at dreammates is already off line. Here is the initial letter & the one she asked for money( I have several others). Also the new photos she is using. I hope this help others from getting caught up in her scam. Thank you, Terry Mascone Letters
