STEP ONE: Google her name:

What you are looking for is a combination of the first and the last name. Because scammers change their sets of pictures, and personal information such as age, city of residence, occupation, etc very frequently, do not be discouraged if you find a scammer by that exact same name, but from another city, or using different pictures, etc.

Example: Your lady's name is Nadezhda (Nadya), and her last name is Chepaykina. 

So, you enter: Nadezhda Chepaykina, or Nadya Chepaykina


And you will get several links, like

Scammer Chepaykina Nadezhda from Kazan, Russia
Chepaykina Nadezhda. (uses the same letters as Andreeva Olga from Kazan, Isaeva

Pick the ones you think are the closest.

STEP TWO: Google her letters (also helps when you do not know your girl's last name yet):

The trick is to find phrases or combinations of words that you think are pretty unique and use them as key words. Below if an example, with possible "key words" underlined:

It is very interesting to me what weather at you today, I
think, that at you should be warm. Spring my liked season, I
likes to look, how the nature comes to life after winter. As
the first kidneys on trees are dismissed. Birds who an autumn
departed on the south arrive , but they again will return.
The first grows a grass, many children leave on street and
are pleased to this season. Children it future our planet and
on them all our hope, does a pleasure me the big pleasure to
observe of them. My parents educated me good formation as
you know I has finished the Volgograd state university on a 
speciality the ecologist. But nevertheless I do not work on this 

If you use "first kidneys on trees are dismissed" as a string of search words in Google



you would likely to receive many links, like:

Remember, that scammers change their photos, addresses, and other identifiable information often, but their pre-written letters usually do not change. So, if you found the same letters that you girl sends to you already published somewhere on the Internet, the chances are that you are corresponding with the same group of scammers.

If you found your girl's name or letters on the Internet, DO NOT SEND THE MONEY. 

Of course, if your girl has a very common name (ex: Elena Nikolaeva), you need to take additional measures to ensure that your Elena Nikolaeva doesn't have anything to do with the scammer Elena Nikolaeva.

For that you submit me her letters for an evaluation, or run a Basic Check on her to make sure she actually exists.


If you think that your girl is a scammer:

There is a number of things that I would urge you to do and not to do:

  • DO NOT tell her that you found her name/letters on the internet (because then she will just dissapear)
  • DO NOT send her links to black lists where you found her name/letters (because then she will just write new boiler plates for her letters, and keep scamming)
  • DO ask her for her full name and mailing address (say that you want to send a parcel for her)
  • DO ask her a scanned copy of her passport if she is asking you for money
  • DO ask her for a scanned copy of her visa if she claims to have a visa already.
  • DO report her to our black list and all other black lists out there
  • FEEL FREE to play around with her sending her huge graphic files to make her go over her mailbox quota (to slow down her "work" with other victims)
  • FEEL FREE to play around with her sending her fake Western Union MTCNs. The more times she will go back and forth, the less time she will have to correspond with other victims.
  • FEEL FREE to play around with her asking her to open a bank account to be able to receive the money. The process of opening a bank account is tedious in Russia, and you will waste at least several hours of her time. Maybe the frustration will make her quit scamming ;)
