This question was posted at Yahoo! Answers:
Recently I was an idiot and over the course of several months I sent
about 5000 dollars for a girl in Russia to come here. We had been
speaking on messenger for over 6 months. I lost it all and she is no
where to be found. I have the western union reciepts and I know her
name. Can I do anything about this?

We did not have a chance to answer this question. Otherwise, we would prefer if he could provide some details of the past emails, and maybe pictures, so that we can warn others about it. We don’t need his love letters, but just the email from the girl.

A short question and a short answer to get over it and move on helps but not as much.
