I had just begun corresponding with a woman from Ukraine when in her 2nd letter she asked for money for correspondence.
I said "no" and in her next letter she did everything from pleading to insults to questioning my manhood if I didn't send the money.
I wrote to her under another name and found out that the responses to that name were exactly the same form letters that I had been receiving when I wrote her my original real name.
I continued to do this about 4 more times and each time each response was the same even though I had asked different things under the different names.
I already knew she was scamming, but your site informed me of some other scams I hadn't thought of.
