If you are reading this now, I would take the time to read these stories. I will note the few exceptions in my story. We met on Zoosk. A few days later, I noticed that her personal profile had been removed from Zoosk. From the beginning, she has appeared to be the sweetest, most romantic woman, I have ever known.
This is why I believe with almost complete surety, that the woman mentioned above, are partners in this scam, or could even be the same woman using 2 identities. I did ask the address of the bank where this Western Union was located. She also explained at this time, that the cost of airline tickets would be around dollars.
She said that, all documents could be processed and obtained more quickly through a professional travel agency in her city of Velsk. I thought this strange for a professional international tourist agency. But, the website did seem legit.
I did not send the sum for the airline tickets, because I wanted to get to know her better. The emails continued, becoming more romantic, and more talk of starting our life together. I also spoke with her on the telephone several times, but she contacted me. She claimed that, she had no telephone or cell phone and could only call from a public phone. Which ironically, she said "did not receive incoming calls".
She could now go to Moscow, to pickup her passport and visa, have visa interview and fly to the United States to meet me for the first time. This is where the previous stories I referred to, line up once again. On the day she was to fly out, she was detained by Customs, and now required to have dollars in her possession, before they would let her leave.
She sent me a copy of her passport and a Customs regulation in Russian. All of the documents seemed official, stamped and dated. When I tried to send this amount through Western Union, the transfer was not approved. I now applaud the actions of Western Union, that I did not lose more money, than the dollars I had already spent. Knowing that she would be waiting near the Western Union, I called the airport and found an agent, near the terminal where she was to depart from.
I had her paged several times, but no one came to the desk. I then gave a description of her from her photos to the agent. She had security personnel go to the Western Union. I waited for the obvious answer, there was no one there matching that description. My suspicions had been confirmed. This was a red flag, and started to examine things more closely. It was a very sloppy signature for a teacher at a school, and letters did not match up to her name.
This is when I started searching the internet and found antiscam. I was shocked when I found the stories I mentioned. I have always felt that crimes of the heart do not have an equal punishment in society. It is the worse crime that can be committed against another human being. I could have been scammed out of much more hard earned money, and I am glad that it ended here with your help. As for dear Oksana, she certainly deserves what is coming to her, and then some.
