Only this time, this lady supposedly does not speak English and does not have access to Internet at all, so she is using services of some Translation Agency or Internet Agency to help her with her correspondence.
The scammers (who play both the lady and the translation agency) milk all men interested in correspondence with this lady for money for translation services for as long as possible.
The profiles show different locations and cities in Russia, Ukraine and other ex-Soviet Union countries.
But every time a bad profile is placed on our site, or we ask the victims to forward us the full e-mail headers of the scammer's e-mail, they ALWAYS show the same IPs and the same Internet Service providers.
