Re: Joe Guzzardi's Column: Marriage Visa Fraud: More Evidence—But It Was All In A Nicole Kidman Movie
A few years ago, I had an exchange with a Russian woman named Nadia—at least she said that was her name—who hustled me for a tidy sum.
The trick played by most of these women who pose as prospective brides is to repeatedly touch their marks for relatively small sums over and over again until the well runs dry.
To give you an example, I'll share two emails—unedited—that I saved to help others from making the same mistake that I did. Remember as you read these that, despite her promises of everlasting love, Nadia had never met me.
"I hope you are fine. I miss you… I would like to ask to help me with money now, because it will be difficult for me to pay for my passport and English lessons. Nobody helps me now, I hope just you. I am really glad that you met with immigration lawyer. When you send me money you should use FedEx as they are faster. I love you and want you to be near me now. Yours forever, Nadia."
"Hello my love! How are you? My darling love I hope you're doing fine. I miss your kiss's so much. I need your hugs.
"My love I have a little problem. And I hope you'll help me. It's rather cold outside and it's rather cold inside my flat. And I haven't any person to warm my soul.
"Our government turned off the hot water and central heating. That's why I couldn't talk because the hot water goes cold very fast. I need a hot bath so much. I'm afraid I'll be so dirty and fat next time when we meet.
"Could you help me with buying and box for heating and saving hot water. And I will always remember you while I'll having a bath. I know that you made a lot for me but I need such king of man like you. I need someone's care and attention.
"My darling I need 300$ US for it. You have to help me. It's very difficult without a hot water. I hope you will help me my love. I love you! I miss you! I want you!"
My advice to any American male entertaining the idea of bringing a foreign-born woman to the U.S. that you do not know well is—don't do it!
