PROSECUTION (for those who already sent money)

Postby Elena » Tue Mar 07, 2006 4:42 am

Police in Yoshkar-Ola, Kazan and other cities are getting interested in cases of dating scammers. Several groups of scammers have been arrested in the last few months. Russian police need more victims to come forward in order to get more cases going.

If you already sent the money, go after the croocks and get Russian authorities involved. With some persistence, you have about a good chance of getting the scammers investigated and arrested.

for any one in the UK 0208 563 6621 now takes you straight through to Stephen Timmons.

i have tried this number today. i want to chat with Stephen about placing warnings against the names of certain people who have been used to pick up money for scammers. i am currently in the process of getting my case together against scammers in Moscow, Kazan and Yoshkar Ola.

i thought i'd try the number (0208 563 6621) to see whether it was still valid.

i'd previously used the number on the back of the Western Union receipts (0800 833 833) and asked the operator to put me through to the Fraud Dept who then gave me an email address for Fexco. this worked fine as a means of finding out when and where the money was picked up.

but a direct line to Stephen Timmons is even better.

Tax evasion...do you think these bastards have reported any money sent to them as income?
Do you think their legitimate government would be interested in how much money they made and have not paid taxes on?

If you've got any bit of addresses that can be used to track them down it's worth an attempt to contact the tax authorities in that country. Tax laws have put many people in jail over the years in some countries. Just a thought!

Quick question, and please don't take offence when I ask this. Did they say they were in the UK, or do you have proof they are? Scammers often claim to be in the UK or USA for example, but some research show them as really being in Western Africa. It makes a huge difference to the options you have.

It seems your other posts point to this being a West African scammer using pictures of Next Door Nikki. You can contact the EFCC, but there's not much they'll do to be honest with you. Best to post up as much info as you have on the scammer.

I believe if I have proof of money sent, that I can get someone arrested for fraud, at the very least...

Does anybody know if it is possible to get a criminal record (in Russia) for a scammer, without really sending them to jail? The idea is, with a criminal record on their backs, they won't be able to get a resident visa for ANY country... Just curiosity, at this point...

I am afraid Elena is no longer on this forum, and without Elena nobody can help you here, as she was the one who was preparing documents for proper filing with Russian authorities. This section was just a legacy from Russian Detective forum.

RS doesn't deal with any Russian prosecutions, we mostly deal with Nigerians.

You will be better off asking your questions Elena directly at her website russian-detective.com

MyFoolishHeart, we removed your report (on your request, btw), we closed the section, we don't deal with this stuff anymore. Closed means closed. We move on with our stuff, you move on with yours. Without RS.

And may I suggest that you just move on with your life, too. And leave the girl and RS alone.
