 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Sandra Yachorenko (aka Yana Wadellanko)
Email Address:
   yana.homecomp8@torba.com
Contacts as a Russian girl interested in visiting Australia. Sends many pics to tantalise, and publishes that she is getting / has gotten a visa to come, but there is a snag - she needs more money to pay for the tickets, and a sister (supposedly lives in Orbost, but works on a sailing/cruise ship) cannot do EFTs the normal way...so, she asks for you to handle a transfer through your back account to hers!
She also sometimes asks for a phone number to call; I gave her a \'burn\' phone number, and while she claimed to have called it, there were never any missed calls on it.

This is thought to be a money laudering scam under the guise of a romance/dating scam. Yana or Sandra is not hard on the eyes, and she sends a lot of pics. I also coaxed a pic of a \'passport\' (probably fake Australian) from her; funny that...why she needs a visa to visit if she has an Australian passport(!)... this passport and a lot of her pictures are on the following site:
