He got some ads of Russian women, and I could tell pretty easy it was all scam.
Can I share my opinion with you, speaking from a point of view of a Russian woman....
Forward them the letter with money request and the story of how you have been scammed.

A true-life Story of Dan and Val, who met over the Internet and fell in love: "I subscribed to an internet dating service a couple years ago, expecting to only communicate with American women. He even sent a letter to President Putin requesting his help in investigation.

Emotions are fine but do not let them overwhelm the facts. Check all the names, addresses and odd phrases from the letters you receive (especially personal names, mispronunciations etc).
I did that, met a few, had a girlfriend from Germany for about a year, but I also received a couple interests from Russian women (which turned out to be scams). The final of the story was dramatic and hit pages of newspapers all over the world. Click here A short while ago I found the black list, shown here.
They intrigued me enough to make me wonder if I should look outside our country, Russia in particular..."In May 2001 Terry, an Australian man scammed by a gang of Internet con-artists, sent his story to Russian Bride Cyber Guide's Black List. Now radio and TV-stations are eager to talk to Terry but he is not keen to give interviews. No need saying that scammers can reach pretty much anybody, who is looking for a life partner online.
Right now, the Black List contains more than 500 pages of information. Copy and paste and put in quotation marks phrases up to 10 words, and see if someone has used the same phrases in letters before. I emailed you about someone I suspected as a scammer and you were correct. I can say if I did not research, purchase and read your e-book on scams, and received your email reply, I would have been lead around by the nose by this scammer for probably months, maybe even a year.
Thank you for setting my path straight and I will not look back on this time as the worst time in my life, but as a turning point of awareness about scams and about what I need to do to change my life, to make sure the woman I find for a wife will stay by my side for the rest of our lives and not before.
Investigators say there could be more victims that have not been identified.
