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

Is She a scam... I WISH TO kNOW (I have more photos of her)Let Me Know

This is Darya Betehtina from Today


XXXXX hello! excuse me that I could not write to you earlier.....

I'm writing to you as soon as I can!!!!!! I was busy with many

arrangements!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! also I had to repeat some words

for my English test and I finally passed my test today morning!!!

today I was in the travel agency and I received an information about my trip!

I will be very thankful to you if you can meet me at the Airport!




I will arrive to you on Wednesday, 14 October

I shall inform number of flight, the terminal and an arrival time

probably Monday or on Tuesday.

more in detail look at the end
the letter. I copied the information of agency




I hope so much it's a good day for you to meet me!




I am so glad to see that we are almost near our goal,and our meeting

wait for us. I think I will call you from airport before my flight.

You know I booked tickets on Wednesday, 14 October flight and I will buy them before

my intervew. People from embassy must be sure that I am not going to stay illegally,

so I need to buy roundtrip tickets (with returning date).

I wanted to ask you about electronic tickets but they tell that

I can't use because it is their businees to arrange all travel details

and they have some extra money from all the things,

you see it is just business.I think that you will be able to help me

because I don't know anybody here and only you are my hope now,

I think everything in your hands and I believe that you will not leave

me here alone.please borrow some money. I am sure I will be able to return all your money

back after a few weeks, I will get salary and I will collect the sum I own from you.

To be fair I am not sure I know what to say because I hate to ask but

now I have no different way, you see.Please help me it is only money

and much more important if we will meet in person I will do my

best, you won`t be disappoined. I see that it sounds a little crazy

but I can't believe that in the worst case I have to return

home,they all will laugh at me.I think it rests with you to decide and I feel that

you will help me because you are kind. I have about 300 US dollars yet and I think

I need about 980 US dollars from your side with all travel needs and living here till my

flight! (I had 1180 dollars, but flight from Krasnojarsk, opening visa, medical

insurance and all travel needs costed about 800 dollars).

For truth I did not expect I will need to buy roundtrip tickets, but now

I see that its a very strict rule.

I was sure that my mom will help me becasue she promised but now she

sent letter that it is possible only in a few months or so because of

family problems.and she can't send transfer now.I was in the bank to

try to ask them about loan but they tell I have to have something to stay them

and I have nothing to stay because I have only a few

dress and things,some perfume and it is all I have,and small gift for you from

russia with love.




please send it today by Western Union or Money Gram

I will write you details:

!!!

send it to russia, Darya Betehtina !!!!This is my full name!




Also I've got an advice to send you a scan copy of my passport

in case you need to confirm my details.




this is my full name used in all official documents. They said this is all info you need.

But please for any case write down more info. The address where I'm staying:

Nemanskii Proezd 21-33, post code (zip) 123592. I rent a small room In an apartment of an old policeman here, it's

cheaper then hotel.The address of the closest Western Union (or MoneyGram) here is:




'NOMOS-BANK' 123592, Moscov, NEMANSKII PROEZD, 18



I have some money but it's not enough to complete my trip.

Please send me 980 US dollars and I will complete my trip!

After it please write me all details about the transfer -




your FULL NAME and Money Transfer Control Number.!!




I will call you as soon as I receive it.

When I receive the money I will pay for my trip and only then

the embassy will put all final stamps on my documents.

I've bought you few souvenirs with Russian attributes!!! I'm

sure you will like them! If you need something more please let me

know, they are not expensive. Also I bought two boxes of Russian

chocolate! I hope so much when I come to you we will like each other!

You are already very special to me!

Please when I come to you tell me more about you and your country!

I will listen to everything you tell me and I will do everything you

tell me! I trust you really much!

I hope you will not do something to hurt my feelings.... I

think you are really good man. I will never do anything to hurt yours!!!

By statistics Moscow is the second most expensive city in the

world after Tokyo... everything is so expensive here... and I have

to pay for my rent and food and buy tickets.. please help me..

Sorry if I missed something or didn't comment please let me know

I was so busy with with all preparations!!!!

This is the Yuliya Bessonova I know, but when she asked for me to help pay for her tickets to come over thats when things just didn't feel right. I googled her name and this site came up. I am just glad I trusted my gut before sending any money. Many thanks to this site. Cheers
