All our hostels are centrally located, just a short walk from Nevsky Prospekt, St Petersburg’s famous main avenue, meaning that you will always feel right in the middle of the action.When our first hostel in St Petersburg opened in 2006, hostels were still a fairly unknown quantity in Russia: we used our experiences travelling in Western Europe as a basis for what hostels in Russia needed to be; no longer just functional, cold places to stay for as little money as possible, but a really warm and friendly home from home for people who want to get as much as possible out of their visit to St Petersburg without having to spend too much money.Sofiya then sent me a photo of herself with her mother, a photo of her as a little child etc to try and prove that she was genuine and she even telephoned me in the middle of the night!I felt sorry for her and unfortunately we re-commenced our communication.Welcome to Friends, a collective of hostels in St Petersburg, Russia’s dazzling cultural capital that offers you a totally new and social way to spend your time in St Petersburg.
She even telephoned me two times and we talked on the second call and she sounded very distressed begging me to pay that amount via Western Union.
I checked the immigration policy in Australia and we actually do have a requirement to pay security bond when application for visa is lodged in certain countries including Russia.
I therefore totally believed her and paid ,350 AUD through Western Union on .
Singapore Airlines later confirmed that Sofiya's original booking was cancelled by a Russian agent and that she did not re-book her flights. On work I study biotransformation of medicinal substances in organism, biochemical mechanisms, actions of medical products in clinical practice.
The damage for all this was ,625 USD and a broken heart. I think, that I and you Dave, we shall be the best friends and I think, that we on it we shall not stop and in the future we become people close each other. I the single child and at me was not present brothers and sisters. I have learnt the english language when studied in the Omsk state university. Very much to like me my work as it responsible and from it depends health of people.
Below is the sad story of the victim of a super-scammer: a highly advanced Russian scammer who duped this man out of $3,625 and broke his heart. On 7 April 2006 I received an email from a lady named Sofiya through an internet dating site. We then started exchanging emails and photos and I was fooled by her emotional and warm words.
