Thank you Brian from US, 2007-10-13, 21:42:54, for posting three of your letters.
I received almost identical letters, but different pictures. The scammer used the name 'Yuliya Ponomareva'. I have only been emailing her for two weeks, and did not send money. So it is good to see what her '38th' will look like. Most likely the girl in the picture does not know her pics are being used as scams.
The scammer's email is 'firstname.lastname@example.org'.
I have also recently received a message/e-mail from Anastsiya. I am thankful I decided to Google the name as some things in the e-mail did not seem right. Initially, there I had received a message on singlenet.com that she was moving to my area and was interesed in talking to me, and to please e-mail her at email@example.com. Her profile showed her as 32 and from Warrenton, VA. I had sent an email to the address (no name was given, only the screen name SlidingDarkness) it seemed legit at the time.
I then got an email back below- similar to the earlier ones, but the earlier posts had emails you could see had emials with well written portions, then some that appeared to be written by a non-native English speaker, this message seemed to be completely written by a non-native English speaker, or made to appear so and 2 pics were attached- which the same person appeared in some of those posted here in later 2007, but different poses.
The email didn't ask for money, but was kind of strange, but did contain very accurate information, she was coming to the US for 3 months, the agency was arranging for all the travel (I guess later on she would have asked for $$ to get here) and she hadn't written back sooner because she was getting ready to travel to Moscow to go to the agency to finalize the trip and she would work here for 3 months as a babysitter and was looking for a friend to show her the US- it seemed like those scenarios in the movies and tv of human trafficking.
Hello!!!! Have good day. I hope, that you remember me because I have written to you recently on a dating site and you
answered me. I am sorry, I did not write to you back at once.
You see, I live in Russia, and I was busy, organizing all my preparations for travel.
You know, it is my first time when I try the correspondence
with the man in virtual space. I am not so good user Intenet, but I hope that I shall have chance
to meet the good person.I think, that I shall explain to you why I do it. I shall work in
the USA approximately three months or more and I wish to meet a good person to be my guide or be the good
friend with whom I can spend time together when I am in the USA. I think
it is very difficult to live in foreign city without friends and besides I never were
abroad. You know, I live in small city in Russia andI am afraid to be lost in your country.
I also wish to see a real life (not the TV shows), and it is impossible to see a real life without the person, who
knows all parts of a life.
Also I do not wish to live in Russia because I have no opportunities here, it is
hardly possible to explain in a few words, but I want you to know all mine
plans. When being in the USA I shall work in any shop or I shall be the baby sitter in some family. I shall know
details later. Except for that I love English language and it will give me chance
improve my English.The agency helps me to receive the visa, the permission to work
and all travel documents.It is their business, and I shall pay for their Services.
One of my friend worked in the USA for three
months in the past to year, and she loved it very much, and she wishes to repeat this trip again.
She has met the right person in Chicago, and they are good friends now and he will marry her if all will be
good between them. In Russia we have special programs for work in the USA and other countries and I think,
that itis the right way for me. I feel lost here, and I hope, that I shall be able to change my life.
I have many plans and dreams...
I send you my pictures, and I hope, that you like me if we meet in real.
Please tell to me what you think about this.I finish this letter, and I hope, that you write me very soon.
Probably you think, that I am little bit crazy, but I am sure that it is the right way to meet good the man without
meeting personally in a real life and besides knowIt is my first try on the Internet.
I shall leave my city in some days to fly to Moscow again to finish all things for travel. Agency
will arrange this trip for me, and I shall work all the day long and I think, that we can spend evenings together and the know
each other better. If you have any interest to meet me I shall be very happy!!!
I do not want to be lonely in the evenings, and I want to know for sure if somebody waits for someone me! It is just a woman's wish!
I shall tell to you all details about my life and about me later.
If you are also lonely, you can be with me for the few Months or so.... Who knows???!

From the sounds and looks of it she is paradoxically honest in that she does look cute and if she is such a great scam artist she probably is pretty intelligent too.
