Wow, I've been ivited to be a three time loser!

Amazing, I just got another Russian dating scam e-mail. I wonder if it is all the same guy or group of guys running this number? I doubt it's a woman, and if it is calling her a woman is really stretching it. Here is another svetlana's letter. Looks familiar. I'll unsubscribe her from the impossible to filter porn spam and call it good.

Hello,and thank you for the answer,(so short one),I will try to explain why I wrote to you ,please forgive my broken english.
you should know that it is my first time I try to correspondence with a man in virtual space.
my friends helped me to find your site and I could send the letter to you and I do hope that I will be lucky to meet good man.
I want to explain why I do it.I live in Russia and I am going to work abroad for three months or so and I would like to meet a nice man
to be my guide and be very good and close friend to spend free evenings with.I think that it is hard enough
to live in foreign town without friend and I have never been
abroad.I don't know anybody in your should know I live in small town here in Russia,I am afraid to be
lost in foreign city.and I would like to see real life, not TV show and it is impossible to see without
person who knows all sides of the life .I will work in shop or in cafe .I will know exactly later I have to test my english and
my future job depends on how good it is.
The agency helps to get the visa,work permission and all travel documents and they will
help me to get job.I will have place to live(rent room) and enough good salary they promise that I will earn good money .
I think it is so great because I can earn here in my town about 100$ a month as waitress to work from morning till evening.One of my friend
worked in USA for three months last year,and she was so pleased and she is going to repeat this trip in a few months.
She has met right man in town where she worked ,and they are good friends and lovers now and he is going to visit her here in Russia.
It is special programme for young people who wants to work abroad and I think it is the right
way for me ,and I think that I will be able to change my life and see many wonderful things and just see different life.
I am full of plans and different should know that I have real blonde hair
and blue eyes.I am sure that you will be not disappoined to meet me in the real life if we meet.
Well,I will close this letter and I do hope to get your reply. may be
my letter sounds a little crazy but i am not sure I know what to say in first letter .I just want to meet good man .
I will leave my town in a week or so to travel to moscow to complete all travel things and I will travel from moscow to my future job.
I will work all day and I think we could share evenings together to get to know each other better.if you have any interest to meet me I will reply.
I just don't want to be alone in the evenings,and I would like to be sure
in advance that somebody waits for me! Just woman wish!
I will tell you all details about me and my life if you have an interest to meet me and free time to spend with me,I know that usually the males are very busy
and I don't want to bother you if you prefer to work a lot.
of course I don't want you to waste all your time,I think everything depends on our first meeting.If you like me and I like you
wew ill have a lot of fun together I think so.
and maybe we are soulmate,who knows.
it is my real personal mail address please use this should know that I have used address and I have told that I am from USA in my profile
because they don't work with russia and I can't put my profile .So many barriers on this way.
with best regards Svetlana,you can call me just Sveta I Send a few pictures I think you should know how I look.this is.....

Hi Guys,

Svetlana wrote me back after I didn't respond and she is sad. I know. Poor Svetlana. Here is what I sent back:

Oh Svetlana,

I miss you too....ha!

You know, Russian Dating Scammers are a step below Internet Spammers, and they are 2 steps below dog shit. It's an evolution thing.

My only question is what a Russian Dating Scammer looks like. My best guess is the guy below. Dude, you are sellin' out your brethren. Bad karma for you pal.

Get a real job, maybe help people instead of fucking them over? Just a thought.

I received two e mails from 'ELENA' but her name she was giving me was KRISTINA.........She wrote the exact letter I saw from the other blogs telling me shes a personal trainer she lives in a 2 bedroom apartment ...Her e mail was the letter........
Thank you for your reply. I was very glad to see your reply in my inbox mail.
That would be right if I tell you more about me and my life because we have a chance to meet in real life
and thus we need to get to know each other better and you please also tell me more about yourself, ok?

I am just a simple and ordinary girl with my own interests, hobbies and tastes.
I guess I will start from telling you about things which
also want to know from you, so you'll see my questions.
As you know my name is Kristina and my last name is Barsegian.
I am 29 years old and on 25 October I will be 30. I am about 168 cm tall and my weight is about 53kg.

My body sizes are 94-62-91cm. I have brown hair and blue eyes
which you can see from my photos.

I know that many women abroad have possibility to improve their bodies and faces
and they look so beautiful. Unfortunately it is impossible here in Russia because even though
we live in Russia, this country is still far from civilization.
But I still think that natural beauty is far better.

I have a family and next time I will send the picture of my parents.
Unfortunately we live in a two-room small appartment and it is not very
comfortable and not convenient. Honestly there is nothing good in the fact that I was
born and live in a small town of Russia.
There is no chance for a good living and it is very hard to fnd a job here.
All young people leave towns and go to big cities searching for work but unfortunately there is also
no luck for them in big cities since nobody is waiting for them there.
Living in Russia is living 'all by myself'. It is a good but cruel school of life.

I hope that in the future I will work as a fitness trainer because I have a cetrificate and I am good at this.
I 've been working for two years as a fitness trainer and it was the best time in my life.

I don't smoke and drink socially, my preference in alcohol is red wine,
but only a glass or maybe two. I tried to smoke when I was younger. Silly me!
But I think almost everybody try to smoke when you are a kid, right?
I try to take care of my body and face as much as it is possible. I wasn't born yesterday and
I know that almost all 'men love women by their eyes', I mean this or that way woman's
appearence is very important for a man.

Speaking about my trip. I will come to the USA this month but I don't know when exactly,
I know that I will have all documents to travel very soon and I will travel to Moscow
again to complete all travel preparations.
I will get a visa and buy a ticket and then fly to the USA. I even don't know where exactly
I am flying because I haven't decided yet. I can choose almost any state to stay that
is why I need to know the name of the nearest international airport to you.
I just want to have somebody waiting for me at the airport and not to be alone there.
I will fly to the USA right from Moscow and I hope you will want to meet me at the airport and
be my guide and besides it would be great to meet with you face to face and spend some time together.
I know that it is not an easy thing as it might seem but there is nothing impossible, right?

I will be more then glad to know wthat you understand me and my thoughts and you are
with me in this question, but if not, then please tell me that you're not
interested in me and don't want to meet me, ok?

I think I shoud close this letter. It is not good that I don't have a computer at home
and have to send my letters to you from the Internet cafe which is far from my home.
I wish I could talk to you on the phone, but unfortunately we don't have possibility for international calls
( I can't call you and you can't call me because we have here four-digital phone numbers).
It is possible to make international phone calls only from big cities.

Ok, that is enough for today. If I didn't tell you something which is important for you or maybe missed something,
don't be angry. Just ask me and I will answer for sure.

I will be here in the Internet cafe on Friday morning because I have a lot of preparations before
going to Moscow. I hope when I come here, I will see one more letter from you.
Pleae write me and don't forget me!!!

Kristina Barsegian
my home address:
New Socolovo town, 10-3

If you want to find my town on the map, it is located not far from Biysk and another big city is Barnaul.

PS Please send me as many photos of you as possible so that I will know you at the airport.
And one more thing. I have a very important question for you
- do you like strong drinks?
- if so how many and how often?
I told her 2 times Im not from the USA but she still doesnt answer ....heres the pic I saved

I started receiving e-mails from'Kristina' when I was contacted through My first reply was that I wasn't interested in women out of my area, buy she persisted, and I continued to respond. When the town of New Sokolovo was mentioned in her e-mail, I did a search on it and found out it was just the beginning of an attempted scam. Her big thing was that she hated dishonesty and drunks. So I thought that I would have at least a little fun. I decided to come up with an outlandish e-mail to number one, insult her nation and her intelligence, and number two, to see if she would possibly continue with the scam after such a response. If the following offends anyone, I apologize, but remember, it's a fictional story.

Dear Kristina,

I need to be honest with you. You admire and respect honesty, right? I'm just going to come out and say it. I fell off the wagon last night. Do you know what that means? It means that I got ripped last night on the Devils tit. I went to the bar and drank one shot of whiskey after another, hoping that I would black out and never come to again. You might be saying why would he do that? I don't know that I can explain it. You see, I suffer from manic depression. There are times when I am in an extremely good mood. When we first began corresponding, I happened to be on a the high end of my sickness. But it can change very quickly. Sometimes I wake up in a great mood, and then through no explanation at all, I begin to stare into the cold and empty infinite blackness that is life. I think what triggered it last night was when I was driving to the supermarket to buy some delicious beef tenderloin. For some reason, It just sounded so good. Here in America, if someone has a craving for anything at all, it's just a short drive down the road to all sorts of different types of stores that sell nearly everything under the sun. Do you have supermarkets in Russia or do you just have long lines to stand in for toilet paper and bread? Russia sounds so cold and hopeless. I remember being taught as a small child that russians didn't have souls. It's hard to believe that such a country can produce such a warm and beautiful woman such as yourself. Anyways, back to what I was saying. I was on my way to the supermarket to get my beef tenderloin, but on my way I passed a funural procession. And the thoughts of good people commiting their loved one to the cold ground made me look into the cold blackness that is at the core of everything this life has to offer. I don't expect you to understand. I've hoped for someone to understand my demons inside of me, but alas, they are my demons and it seems that I'm the only one who has any sort of understanding of them. And yet I can't explain them so that anyone else can understand. How someone cannot understand me, I can't understand. It's a viscious circle. So, last night, instead of going to the supermarket, I ended up at a bar. I couldn't hold my demons down for long and began to feed them the only available poison. I've seeked professional help in order to see if the drugs that the psychiatrists prescribe were any good. They want to have you try one drug to see if it works. If you feel nothing, believe me, I know what nothing feels like, they will prescribe one drug after another, and one drug after another was more and more of nothing. So anyways, I was at the bar last night, drinking one shot of whiskey after another. I began to get the sensation that I was floating in the air. Usually my demons are pacified when I get the floating sensation, but last night they wouldn't calm down. The last thing that I needed to see last night was some god damned arab, but there was one ordering drinks at the bar right next to me. If I was a damned towel headed sand nigger, I wouldn't expect much love here in the U.S.A. Or anywhere else in this day and age. Do you have a special distaste for arabs? The only good arab is a dead one in my opinion. And they're dying off faster than anyone even bothers to count thanks to the almighty American muscle flexing our might far and wide throughout the world. You better pray that we don't turn our eyes to mother russia, so be good little peasants and continue to bow to our rule of the world (just kidding). We're not that far away from you right now. We're in afghanistan, iraq, saudi arabia, turkey, germany, s.korea, japan. We're all around you, so be careful (kidding again). But, like I was saying, I was at the bar when this towel head walks up to the bar and orders some fruity drinks for him and what was probably his god damn boyfriend. I made like I was turning around all of a sudden, and proceeded to bump into his arm on purpose and spilt his drink on him. It was great! But it gets better! I quickly pretended like the guy just punched me, so as to give the impression to the other patrons and bar help that he was the one that started it. I was great. He didn't see it coming. I gave him a wicked right hook to his jaw and he whimpered like a little boy. The bouncers quickly intervened and threw us all out of the bar. But I did meet some people outside that congatulated me on messin' up that arab scum. They ended up offering me some LSD, which I was very thankful for. I'm still zooming on it as I right this letter. Another common term for LSD is acid. They call it an hallucinagetic drug, but I've never hallucinated on it. Isn't that funny? Life just seems more interesting when you're on acid. I just feel more in tune with myself and others when high on acid. I also become much more talkative. Can you tell? I think LSD along with marijuana should be legalized. They can criminalize alcohol for all I care. Alcohol is such a stupid drug. Hey! You know what just occurred to me? I'm a pretty good speller. Let me try a really hard word. Let's see if I can spell psylosybin mushroom. Do you think that's correct? Do you know where psylosybin mushrooms come from? You find them growing on shit in cow pastures. Can you believe that? That a fungus that grows on cow shit can make someone feel so good. Heaven is in a cows' butt! Oh man, that's funny! If you want, we should take some together when you're here. Man, that would kick ass! If you've never had sex while on some good drugs, you're in for a real treat. Your whole body willl orgasm over an over until you just can't take in anymore. Pure bliss! We could have such a good time. I'm not presuming too much am I? I mean, you're going to be blown away by the intellect of this American male, let alone my good looks with my body ripped and chiseled into near perfection. Especially when all that you're accustomed to is siberian sausage eating slobs. I hope you don't mind me saying so, but the U.S.A. is a million times better than russia. But you know that, that's why you're coming here. There. Talk about bearing ones soul. I feel pretty good right about now. I'm hungry, what sounds good? You want to know what my favorite breakfast is? I combine one cup of Wheaties with a half cup of All-Bran cereal, approximately a half cup of skim milk, a half cup of frozen blueberries, and 8 oz. of blueberry low fat Yogurt into a blender and blend it into a smoothie. Tasty! Then I always take my vitimin supplements each morning too. Except you're on the metric system so you probably don't know what I'm talking about with cups and ounces, do you? You're going to have to forget all about the metric system when you're in th U.S.A. and learn the English way to measure. I think you might get overloaded with all of the pleasure that is awaiting you here in America, because you're probably only used to snow. Is snow your main export in siberia? (joke) But others seem to handle it just fine. We've got mexicans and puerto ricans and czhechoslovakians or whatever they're calling themselves these days working at my place of work. Hey, I just remembered! The Red Hot Chili Peppers are playing here in Grand Rapids on November 2nd. If you make it here in time, I know someone who is selling tickets. We could go. That would be a treat for you, huh? I doubt any rock bands tour siberia. It seems like there is a new rock band playing here every week. Well, I guess you know me a whole lot better now. Okay, I'm stating to wind down now. So much so that I'm starting to sound pretty silly, huh? You never know what you're going to get with me! Know this! LOVE ROCK AWAITS YOU!


Anybody think she will continue to show interest in me?

I have this Svetlana chick { or whoever} on the ropes. She sent me the same pictures you have. I have her thinking I am a lovestruck schoolboy. When she finally asks for the dough, I will lead her to believe that I will send it by Western Union to a bank that's at least 50 miles from her. Make her go there for nothing. I will do this as many times as she allows.

Ron and Mike, I too got e-mails from Svetlana and she has a new e-mail address I didn't fall for any scam yet thanks to you guys posting her pictures. I have a bunch more differrent pics of her at the lake half naked. Thanks for the info, I got lucky to find this site by accident.
