A Canadian man claims Valerlia Lukyanova, a Ukranian model dubbed the "living Barbie," tried to scam him last month.
"It's all a scam and it is fake," Tony Oxley, a school board caretaker told the Canadian news outlet QMI Agency in a recent report. "This same woman tried to get money from me a couple of weeks ago."

He says that in message that appeared in his e-mail earlier this month, Lukyanova claimed to have found her true love and wanted money to travel to Canada to see him.
"I played her along for a little while and she sent me more pictures," he said. "She then wanted $900 to buy airline tickets to come to Canada to be with me."
Oxley said he sent QMI Agency some of the same photos she posted to her Facebook site, along with her expressions of eternal love and requests for money.
"I don't think she is real, and I am convinced she is a scam targeting people," he said on Saturday. "People should be careful and not send money to anyone they meet by e-mail."
He says she wanted him to send her money by Western Union since it was the quickest ways for "the lovers to be together.
He says he broke off contact with her after she requested the funds to come to Canada.
