Angelika Filippova (Ternopil,Ukraine) I am divorced white mail age 46. I received a scam attempt. I received and email from her via AOL (below #1). She stated she had seen my profile on "some site but could not remember which". I was suspicious from the start. Just for fun, I replied to her initial email from another email address. As expected, I got identical emails #1 and #2. She never answered any specific question so I decided to play it out and wait for the scam. Well, I got it (#2). She requested $2,200 USD to travel to the US to see me on a tourist visa. I know that is not possible. I am attaching pictures and a URL that was in her first email. Here is what she gave me in email #2. I do not have her first email anzhelika777.naroddotru/
Here is email #2Hello dear John, I am glad to hear from you again. Today I was thinking a lot about our acquaintance and I came to idea that the Internet is great - it helps people to find brothers soul even so far away - on different corner of the worrld! Its so pitty that I dont have Internet access at home, but thanks God there is one Internet-cafe not far from my house. I have my own PC but there is no phone at our flat. Here in Ukraine the phone access is of big rarity in the private apartments. I live in small Ukrainian town of Ternopil, it is located in Western part of the country. Nearest big city to us is Lviv, the other beautiful cities near Ternopil are Rivne, Lutsk, Khmelnitsky. Although my home town is small, it is the regional center (Ternopil oblast). Oblast means "province" in your language. I live with my parents yet. My father is a dentist, as I told you already and my mother works as manager in "Galichina" hotel placed on the coast of beautiful lake in the old city center of Ternopil. She speaks good English, German, Polish and a bit of French and Spanish. So she got this job thanks her talents to foreign languages. Sometimes she is even able to visit other countries on hotel business exchange basis. She was already in Poland, Czech Republic, Germany and Slovakia. Good for her. Ive never been abroad yet. I hope to see the world a bit too. I can speak English, Slovakian and Polish. And of course I speak Russian and Ukrainian. This part of Ukraine I live in was added to the USSR after World War II only. Thats why our local people still keep the tradition to speak several European languages of our neighbours - Poland for example was always present here in the past. But English I studied during my secondary and university education - other languages I learned "in the streets" and can speak them since my childhood. I have a sister Oksana. She is married and lives in Lutsk with her husband. Both of them are scientists and work at the Volyn State University (faculty of History and Etnography). They have daughter - 6 years old Dasha. As for me, I was never married and I dont have any children. My sister comes to visit us sometimes, but not often, because she is very busy with their scientific researches and has many etnographic trips all over Ukraine. After Ukraine became independent in 1991 our state donates such researches because Soviet power always tried that people forget their traditions and nacional attitudes. They proclaimed new nation - Soviet people. Now it is different and Ukrainians slowly come back to their national pride. Im not sure is it interesting for you everything Im writing. As for me, Im really interesting in everything about you, your nationality and your country. Our friendship meens a lot for me and I want to understand and feel you like myself - like my second half - to be correct. Yours AngelikaAnd here is the scam. Email #4My darling, Thank you very much for warm words. Im happy that we are on the same wave in our thinking, aims and dreams. It became important for me to feel your presence in my life. It brought me a kind of insight to review my ordinary everyday life here in Ternopil. As I need you so much, and you need me the same way strong, I believe, we should not lose any minute staying divided anymore. We just have to meet each other in person and start our relationship in real life. Earlier I have found out how we could meet. But now I believe, the right time has came for us to become more than virtual partners. I can fly to you with the help of travel agency. Several agencies offer tourist trips to America. The fastest and most reliable service is at "Intertours" - they can prepare my travel documents, flight tickets and travel insuarance in one week. My mother told me they are very reliable, because several her friends used this service to come to America. They charge 3700 dollars for complete service including opening an international travel passport and three-months US visa plus tickets and hotel reservation in America (which I do not need but it is impossible to obtain US tourist visa without hotel reservation). And they are fast because it will take only one week till well be together. I could spend for this trip 1500 US$, that I have. Do you think you could find the rest 2200 US$? That is my proposition. Actually, it is more normal for my country that the man pays for everything himself. But Im not agree with that. I have some money myself and my profession is also very usefull and popular in any country. Im not rich but Im able to earn the money and Id like to spend them as I want. We dont need to be in hurry. We have time to get know each other better. But as for me, Im sure that one minute of real meeting gives us much correct impression that one year writing each other. Any how, I think I know you enough via letters and Im ready to meet. Let me know what do you think about my proposition. I guess we are enough grown up and persons to do what we feel to do. If you feel the same as I do, of course. But if no, I dont think we should meet at all. Yours Angelika You may send the money using Western Union Their Internet site is at westernunion.com and their phone number in the States is 800-325-6000.
