Today I got this letter from Maria who supposedly lives near Omsk in Russia. It is a form letter as well, I can tell that much already, and I also post the photos.
She sent me an email from an account at match.com, but by the time I got to read her email, her match.com account was already closed. However, she had left me a yahoo email address (spring_flower351@yahoo.com) which I briefly answered.

I received the following (form letter) answer, with 3 pictures - one of which you see here to the left, the other 2 are at the end of this posting:

Hello,

How are you doing? I have to appologize in advance that
I cannot write you back at once because I don't have
a computer at home and I have to use an Internet cafe to write you. It i slocated not so far from my home.
First of all I'd like to thank you for responding me back
and I should be honest with you, I live in Russia.
I hope that doesn't scare you off. At least you can read my lettter up to the end and see if you want to
correspond with me or not. If you ask me why I put my profile not as Russian one, I will tell you.
Match.com was adviced to me by a friend, but I will tell you about it later. Unfortunately when I started with
my profile, there was no country listed as Russia, so I wrote that I am not in Russia.
I didn't want to lie or something about the country I live in, I hope you understand.
Ok, I guess I have to tell you about myself. I live in a village named Beregovoy.
If you want to see my city on the map it located not far from big city Omsk.
I have never been to your country but still I like this country traditions, customs... You I see graduated the faculty of Foreign
Languages in a College for three years and I write you without translator.
Once when I was studying at the College I had a chance to talk with an English man, but this was the only person
I talked in English face to face.
If you are still intersted here is some more information about me:
Despite of the Autumn it is still pretty warm here ( about zero centigrades) though usually it is colder.
And what about you? Is it warm there or cold?
You know I feel very lonely here in Russia because I couldn't find the right man for myself.
I know that there is no ideal people and I don't rush into it but still I believe that there is a man that will love me
just for who I am, with all my advatages and disadvantages. I want to settle down and have a family of my own.
A friend of mine who adviced me match.com also put her profile there and she found her real love there.
Now she lives with her husband and two kids are living in Germany, in province not far from Berlin.
Everybody wants to be happy and me too. I am not after money or sugar daddies or better life. Age difference is
also not important.
I am just an ordinary woman who wants to be happy. Maybe if I had family here in Russia I wouldn't even think to
write an American man, but I am an orphan and nothing keeps me to try to find love somewehere far from Russia.
My friends know about my idea and they support me and wish me oly happiness.

I guess you are interested in my likes and dislikes and etc:
- I am an orphan
- I work as a surgeon in a city hospital ( I graduated school, then I graduated College and
after that I got a diploma of a surgeon in Medical Academy) and you know I like my job, I like helping people and sometimes
safe their lives.
-I like almost all kinds of music but most of all I prefer Classical music and I hate rap.
-My favourite color os blue
-My favourite flowers are white lilies
-I love pets and anymals but unfortunately I spend too much time at work and that is why I have no possibility
to have a cat or a dog
- I am Christian and go to Church 2-4 times per month
- I have never been married and I have no kids
- I adore cooking and my fafourite food is Russian and Italian. My favourite dish is lasagna.
- I have a driving license but I have no car
- I like to go to cinemas and theatres but I don't like disco because it is very noisy there and it is always overcrowded.
- I don't smoke and I drink socially ( for example a glass of red wine)
- I don't have tattoos or piercings exept for my ears.
- I don't like winter but winters are usually cold in Russia

What else? I guess that is all for today. If you are really interested, please write me as soon as you can
I will reply to you. I hope you didn't get tired of my long e-mail, I just wanted you to have a better idea
of me. And you please write me more about yourself, your likes and dislikes, about the place you live in.
A couple of pictures of you would be very much appreciated.
Please write me back today or tomorrow.
Keep smiling!

Your new friend from Russia, Maria

Thank God I found this on the Internet I was about 24 hours away from mailing the money. I've been doing three days, a research trying to find information about city international travel agency, it looket so legit. they had a great deal like the rest of you are from the manager but with no name, same account numbers same banks city international Web address is www.city international.norod.ru and other e-mail address is city international@narod.ru telephone number.+7908-928-76 I had called the Russian Embassy in San Francisco that couldn't verify anything about city international travel agency. They said to be paid by a bank wire also intermediary bank; wachovia Bank'NA;New York usa account number, 2000193460018 Swift;PNBPUS3N NYC I don't know this information will help and you probably have already received IT To I will be checking back at this web site to see who else got suckered into this dill. Yes, she is a beautiful woman in the pitchers I received five pitchers that I didn't see on this page, whether that's good or not, I don't know to last all me she had to leave out of town on the train. And when she got back. She hoped to have good news from the travel agency. They are now waiting on hearing from me and I'm trying to figure out what to tell them. I also had scams from Africa, Thailand and China. So I guess we better stick to the girls in the USA. And thank you very much for saving my ass. Her name was OK sana Mogilnikova. I guess, you will find good and bad on the Internet. We have experienced the bad and we have now found a good. Thank you from Oklahoma.

Just food for thought guys, notice how 'she' came into our lives right around tax return time? Coincidence, I think not.
