I recieved e-mail from Tatyana on Americansingles.com using profile name 651Bright351. On her first e-mail she was already considering herself to be my new girlfriend. I knew it was a scam from the start. She also listed the following e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org. The photo she posted is attached. I then received an e-mail the second day with a photo that was already listed here under the name Tatyana Vedernikov and Tatyana Andreevna.
Hey Guys -- THANKS for setting up this web site. Pretty sure 'Tatanya' is an organized ring created to separate lonely gullible guys from their money. Maybe they got ahold of her pics and use them, promising a modeling career or somethint. Or maybe it's kind of like a franchise and she's supplied with form letters and she works them. Probably in Russia, but maybe run from here in the U.S. Will probably never know.
Like others I have read about the end point must be a request for money -- after it's received the sender is told it has been 'stolen' or 'taken from her by a government official'. Then a request for more money will probably follow. Google 'russian woman scams' or similar for lots more.
Re. her 'patience', there's probably enough of an eventual payoff for some gal or guy to manually crank these letters out day after day. It would be pretty easy to write a program that, each day, accesses a database with names and email addresses and merges names within emails (inserting names numerous within the text like 'she' does to give it a personal touch), keeping track of the sequence and sending the next one the next day.
