Dating scam from Kazan, Russia - Part 1

I would like to warn fellow males from a scam artist, located in Russia.

Click to see more..
I had a profile posted on an American dating web site and a female from my area answered me. Her letter was a few lines long, in good English and she seemed honest and cute, so I replied.

The letter said she had a read-only trial account and would not be able to receive messages, so she included a yahoo email address. She asked me to write to this yahoo email address. I did this and a few days later her trial account was gone, she explained that she deleted it because she found me. (that is what she answered, when I asked her about it)

This girl claimed to live in Kazan, Tartastan, 26 years old and called herself Barbi.
There was something suspicious about her letters, in particular I always had the
impression that she did not really read mine every time. Sometimes she wrote
personal, matching replies, then sometimes not. her photos of which she sent
about 25 so far, had number like 5.jpg, 6.jpg, 35.jpg etc.

Yesterday I did a query for some phrases of some of her emails and found them
posted on 2 other web sites. Apparently she wrote identical letters to other guys
using different names and different pictures. She or he asked those guys for money,
supposedly for tickets or visa paperwork. I guess I am lucky that she never asked
me for any money. However, I felt fooled when I saw "my" emails had also been
sent in parts to other guys.

For that reason I will post her here letters. I know that parts of these letters
have been posted on 2 other sites, but not all.
I include the full headers in the first email. The sender comes from a russian
dial-up but in another email I sent her a URL to one of my web sites and apparantly
"she" uses some sort of satellite DSL for the downstream, the IP number was
84.xx (to be filled in later).

Hey, has anyone heard of EKATERINA BUBNOVA from BERDSK?

I'm a little thrown because she sent a photo of her passport indicating it was purchased/authorised a few days ago. It could be Photoshopped,

Here she is holding the passport, same girl who has sent pics before.

Here's her holding the passport. I can't clean up the image enough, but if you look REAL CLOSE, the details don't quite match, the most obvious one being the Place Of Birth in the one she's holding is much shorter than the large image. Can anyone clean it up? I've tried but no luck. Could be useful.

Oh, btw, after nine emails the money request has come through. It's only $250, but I think it's the first of several.

Thanks for this great site.

Damn, you guys are GOOD!!. I'd seen some but not all of those photos. But more importantly, I have a name now.

I wasn't going to giver her any money, by the optimistic part of me was hoping it was legit. The cynical part is now strutting about going neener-neener. Ah well, you've got to laugh.

Thanks heaps, this has made my day!

Ekaterina Bubnova,
26 Belinskogo St., apt# 17,
Berdsk, 633011, Russia.
ekaterina bubnova <>
I'm just over a dozen emails from her, and she sent me the above address in case I
want to send her something in the future
. So, the money request is not far off. I think the 'tragedy email' should be coming next which tells me about either her losing a job or having a sick relative and that she can't afford the internet cafe any longer, unless... I could send her money. It's been a couple of years, but I had a Russian Gal named Anna (if that's really what I wanted to believe) and they tried this same scam. I think that then, they used a sick relative as the excuse to ask me to send monies.... and they at least sent some suggestive photos. With these, you barely get to see any skin, but maybe the occasional swim suit top. Oh well. I would never use my real name, provide any personal information, and definitely never send money.
Good Luck, Everyone.
