Not sure exactly what you mean in your last message OJAS - please explain!

We are up to date now... along with the photos, I received the same email yesterday. What a strange and surreal situation!
I am not sure what to do when I get the phone number?
I told her I received a massive work Christmas bonus though, that should get her salivating.

I agree, it's very strange, but at least we are in control of the situation, unlike some poor guys out there who've been well and truly scammed! Maybe our notes and photos will help them and others in future!
Don't think you'll get a phone number, but let's wait and see if it's given! I gave 'her' my spare cell phone number ages ago and so far no call, but don't forget 'honey', 'shes' a control freak extrordinaire!!!
What with your Christmas bonus and my Lottery win, she'll think all 'her' birthdays have come at once!
Watch this space for the next episode of 'From Russia with Love!'

One or two name tips in the trailer below! Tatyana Romanava for one!
Just sent 'her' confirmation of my UK Lottery win, which, incidentally, I found on this site and as used by another scammer! Very convincing!!!
'Hello my dear and hope you are well.
I'm feeling much better today thanks to your remedy and I am sending you a copy of my UK Lottery win notification below, so that you will understand what I tell you my dear!

Since other baiters have already spent time composing replies to scammers, it could provide ideas, save time for future guys. If the scammers save time using template letters, so can the scammees.
Grande Finale is when you have had enough, decide to block this one, and on your terms. When a victim sends money, the Grande Finale is on the scammer's terms.
Many thanks once again OJAS. I really do like the info you keep posting for us, as it clears the way ahead for me (and OZ) and it also allows others to become more confident in what they are doing and/or not doing right now! It also keeps us all updated with the great news stories from around the world, that hopefully could prevent more honest guys from being scammed, in their quest for love on the Inter.
I have received allmoust the same messages on the same date from this obvious scamer. She is presented as dentist, father retired policeman , has suggested to visit me on the same date as the other guys??!! Attached were the same photos with indicated the same date so there is no sense to attach them again and from my part. Unfortunately, I have been learned how to detect and recognize scammer . This one was suspicious from the very begin . I continued to be in touch and let her to hope that she can scamm me finding what kind of methods could be used by such persons. This one is very active scammer with in adavance built strategy. My advice is to avoid her by all means.
WOW! My Invitation has just arrived before I go to bed and it's got 'her' full Sunday best name - Basova Anastasia Vladimirovna and 'her' address!!!
I suppose yours is exactly the same!!!
I'm so excited, I won't sleep!!!
