I hate to make this a thread and make it a sticky but I can't figure else where to put it. In the Russian Room there's a little news article (here) about scammers in Йошкар-Олa or Ioshkar-Ola as it might be better transliterated. Anyway in that story is a series of pictures and I thought number 3 was interesting. This was pulled off the TV report, and it says Ioshkar-Ola up in the corner. The woman pictured is part of the scam gang. My point here is: take a look at those sheer drapes and tell me if they don't look familiar. Or am I just imagining things?
