To: 'Ahmed Saboni' <email@example.com>
I am more than happy in your reply to my mail.How are you this morning? How was your night? hope fine. Mine is a little bit cold over here in Dakar Senegal, In this camp we are only allowed to go out from the camp only on mondays and fridays of the weeks, It's just like one staying in the prison and i hope by Gods grace i will come out here soon.
I don't have any relatives now whom i can go to because all my relatives ran away in the middle of the war, the only person i have now is ( REV.JOHN MARK ) who is the pastor of the (Christ The King Church) here in the camp he has been very nice to me since i came here but i am not living with him rather i am living in the women's hostel because the camp has two hostels, one for men the other for women.
The Pastor's Tel number is (+221-571-80-53) if you call and tell him that you want to speak with me, he will send for me in the hostel, As a refugee here i don't have any right or privilledge to any thing be it money or whatever because it is against the law of this country.I want to go back to my studies but not in Senegal or Rwanda because i only attended my first year before the traggic incident that lead to my being in this situation now took place.
Please listen to this(it's a secret,even the Revrend don't know about it),i have my late father's FUND DEPOSIT CERTFICATE and his DEATH CERTIFICATE here with me which shall be used to claim the money from the bank,because when my late father was alive he deposited some amount of money in one of the leading bank here in Senegal which he used my name as the next of kin,the amount in question is $4.5 (Four Million,Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars).
So i will like you to help me transfer this money to your account and from it you will send some money for me to get my travelling documents and air ticket to come over there to meet with you.I kept this secret to people in the camp here but the only person that knows about it is the Revrend because he is like a father to me,but he does not know that i have the FUND DEPOSIT/DEATH CERTIFICATES here with me .So in the light of above i will like you to keep it to yourself and don't tell it to anyone for i am afraid of loosing my life and the money if people gets to know about it and when i will be there with you.
Remember i am giving you all this information due to the trust i deposed on you.I like honest and understanding people,trustfull and a man of vision,optimistic and hardworking, My favourite language is english because it is my country's general language.Meanwhile i will like you to call me like i said, so that i can hear your voice and you hear from me too.Have a nice day and think about me.
Awaiting to hear you soonest .
This people are like a pest! a little education will bring them at least a decent job! 100% is a lazy smart ass sitting somewhere stilling pictures from women in the net...
Thanks for your work!

I feel so lucky because I have met such a man from the first time and I will do all my best
to meet you in real life soon. Ok, this letter is going to be long too, so be ready to read
it since I want you to know everything about me.
I guess you have a right to know that I am not perfect and I am not an angel, I mean I am just an ordinary
girl with all ordinary human problems. Sometimes I can show my character and of course I don't expect you
to be an angel too, I just want to meet a kind man. I am an easy-going person and can forgive almost everything,
but there is one thing. I hate drunkers and rude men.
I love water and my favourite thing is swimming. I wish I could live near some sea or a ocean. You know, I have a dream.
I want to see an ocean. I was always dreaming about it, sometimes I even think that I was a fish in my previous life
(hopefully some dolphin but not a shark). I also love warm weather and I hate winters. Here in Russia winters are long and very cold.
I have graduated the Samara State Univercity and I have a high degree or a license in trainers faculty and I can work as
a fitness trainer or dance trainer. I like my profession and I wish I could work on this subject in some fitness club.
I think it is very important to have a job which can give you not only a good salary but also good mood and get a pleasure
from your job. What do you think? Unfortunately it is very hard to find such kind of job here becquse we have only a couple
of such clubs and there is no vacancy.
Ok, some things wich I also like and don't like to do:
I think I didn't write you I like to cook. I will cook Russian cuisine for you! Pelmeni, vareniki, blini, borsch, okroshka!
You will like it! Besides Russian cuisine I like Italian and Mexican. I love spaghetti and pizzza!!!!! mmmmmmm !
I can't live without it! I like Mexican food because it's very spicy, although I don't cook Mexican dishes too often.
I've been told my cooking is very tasty! I like to cook cakes. My favorite is cheese-cake with raspberry! You
know... when I talk about food I'm getting hungry ))) I eat everything and I'm not on any diets but usually I don't eat after 7 pm.
This helps me not to be fat!
I have never been married but I hope someday, I also don't have kids though I already have an experience of a baby sitter.
Sometime ago I had to stay at home because I couldn't find a job and I was helping my sister with her little daughter.
I hope one day to find that special one and it is impossible here in Russia because men are real drunkers and very rude.
You know for me age difference deosn't matter. I think it is better that you are older then me because older men are more
experienced and they know what they want to get from life. I hate evil people and I hate politics.
Last few years I associate politics with wars and as you can see from my letter I hate violance and wars.
What I like in a man? Faithfulness and honesty. He has to be open-minded and kind-hearted, also easy-going.
And I believe that there cannot be any games in relationship between a man and a woman.
It is very important for a man to be a kind man. Maybe you think I am naive but I do belive that love and kindness makes
our world still alive. Are you a kind man??? I do believe you are, because soon I am flying to the USA and meet you there.
When I am in the USA I will rent some room near my future work and hopefully we shall spend free time together.
I have a question. Is it ok for you if we live together. I mean if we like each other or maybe if there will be
something more then just be friends. I think I will improve my English with your help and it will give us a chance
to get to now each other better, who knows... We'll see.
I have a driving license but I am not sure if I am able to drive there in the USA, maybe you will give me a few good lessons.
My head is full of plans and ideas...
I am sorry for a long letter but I just wanted you to know me better. I am flying from Samara's airport to Moscow in a few hours.
So it is several hours from Samara to Moscow.
When I come to Moscow and settle down I will write you an email. I will write you as soon as I can!!!
I will have to find a hotel or rent a room to live in before my flight to the USA.
I was told it will take about two more days to complete all my travel arrangements and I do hope to see you in a few days already!!!
Even don't think to look at other girls since I am the best one for you!(joke)
i receive the same e-mail but from an IRINA.
Who is this girls? She is the real person who write the letters?
I receive more many fotos and one video, and she try to get money from me.....
Of course i don give cent.
I am from PT.
There is the IRINA.....firstname.lastname@example.org
Her name is elena.Didn't ask for money yet but i am sure it will follow.Is this women for real? Does anyone know her?How can a cutie like this look for a partner,let's be real!She is a scammer but still hot!

anonymous from South Africa ...sorry pal, this girl's pics are all over the site....actually, on pretty much every anti-scam site on the net. She must be a good bread winner for them.
Otherwise, welcome to any newcomers who find this thread.....PLEASE READ THIS!
...and svae yourself a lot of grief/homework:
SOME GENERAL INFO ABOUT RUSSIAN GIRLS AND RUSSIAN DATING SCAMMERS:
The vast majority of Russian dating scammers are actually men, mostly working in small gangs in or around Yoshkar Ola, in Mari El republic, sometimes Chuvashia. It's virtually guaranteed that the girls in these scam pics aren't involved because the scammers steal their pics from the internet or pay unsuspecting friends for them, or buy and exchange them on scammer websites. (Once a scammer even admitted to me that he stole his pics from army-of-brides.com and mamba.ru ).
Most scammers are VERY lazy and looking for quick cash. They use email extractor programs to get your mail addresses, and copied form mails and spam programs on automatic reply, very often the BAT!, which can personalize small parts of each letter. They mostly won't read your letters until after the money letter because they don't have time, ie because they're scamming, or trying to scam, as many guys as they can (economies of scale).....and also because they're semi-literate losers who can't speak much English anyway. IN OTHER WORDS, you can write any crap in your replies and they won't react, they're only interested when they're curious to know if you've taken the bait. Furthermore, the majority of Russian scammers nowadays use proxy servers or forged IPs to hide their locations.
A girl is only involved either occasionally to phone a guy up, especially if he's suspicious, or to pick up the loot at Western Union, with a false ID of course!
So....if several or more of the following criteria apply to your Boris (the beautiful Russian 'girl' that is supposedly writing to you), resist the temptation to help 'the poor girl' by sending her money. You're really writing to a sleazy guy sitting in a smoky room in Yoshkar Ola, with a bunch of other sleazy guys spamming indiscriminately on laptops .
# 'girl' writes to you first on a dating site...especially a free one (or an email appears out of nowhere in your mailbox). Real Russian girls are rarely so bold as to write to you first. (unless you're obviously very attractive or rich :))) They will often reply to your mails, but rarely take the initiative. It's the man who does the chasing in Russia. Plus if they're looking for a partner, they generally prefer him to be Russian speaking and live in Russia. Much more convenient!
# girl's much too young for you (or too good to be true/looks like a model/porno star)....although I have noticed a recent tendency for some scammers to use photos of slightly 'less attractive' girls as well.
# girl has some far-fetched excuses for you not visiting her in Russia (criminal city, not the Russian custom, terrorism, it's her dream to come to your country, etc). ALL BULLSHIT!! Actually, the normal way to meet a Russian girl is to visit her in her city first.
# scammers rarely have children, but most of the real Russian women I've ever met on the internet did (except for Moscow career girls). It's often the reason that they're looking for a partner.
# photos are too revealing (can't be a respectable girl). Respectability is very important to most Russian women (especially Moscow career girls). They're hardly likely to send a half-naked photo to a virtual stranger on the internet. Think with your brain!
# most of the pics are old and a little bit faded with a curiously grainy quality that soon becomes quite easy to recognise (overuse?). Again a scammer admitted to me that low-quality photos are a key factor in his scamming. I found this strange because a serious girl who's looking for a partner usually saves up and goes to a professional to have a studio set done (often corny ones posing with a chair etc), and/or borrows a digicam at least (dates should also be on the photos you receive). My fiancée did it. Russian girls aren't all that poor anymore, and if they seriously want to leave Russia, they know that posting cheap pics will only attract cheap guys.
# GIRL CLAIMS NOT TO HAVE A MOBILE PHONE. Very unlikely!!! fer f***'s sake.....do you know a single girl without a mobile phone? Even poor Russian girls can't do without one, they're much cheaper than in Europe and a Megafon telephone card doesn't cost that much either. You should be able to call her whenever you want. On the other hand, not having a landline or a desktop/laptop is very common.
# very long rambling/ecstatic form letters with a strange format, punctation and layout written in scamlish. (world's worst Babelfish copy)
# writes long letters everyday in English. How does she have time to write those long letters if she's working? And if she doesn't have a job, how can she afford a computer + internet? Even Internet cafés are relatively expensive in Russia. Anyway, most Russians outside Moscow can hardly speak a word of English. What's the point of finding a girl you can't communicate with, at least on a basic level? PLUS.. if she can't speak English, why does she have a non-cyrillic email account like gmail or yahoo? Most real Russians use mail.ru, yandex.ru or inbox.ru....though hotmail and yahoo are acceptable if she'll chat with you on messenger (preferably with a webcam).
# doesn't answer direct questions (sometimes factual mistakes in the letter). Her replies should be exactly that...replies...however short they are.
# falls in 'love' very quickly. Don't let your ego, loneliness or lust pull the wool over your eyes. She doesn't know you. You could be an axe murderer for all she knows. Russian TV is full of documentaries about Russian girls who have emigrated and got murdered, abandoned, etcetc.
# uses a proxy server to hide his/her location, ie a SOCKS server / GPRS Internet. if you can't trace 'her' IP, it's 100% scam. THE FIRST THING YOU SHOULD DO IS TRACE HER IP ADDRESS. In fact, it's the only thing you need to do really..
MOST IMPORTANT...if you get this far:
# she asks for money for a tourist 'visa' and/or maybe tickets, ignoring the fact that IT'S VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR A SINGLE RUSSIAN GIRL TO GET A TOURIST VISA TO A WESTERN COUNTRY!
She can get a SPONSORED visa with your help, but then she needs a personal letter of invitation from you, a copy of your passport, a proof of your residence in your home country, a completed sponsor's application form (also from you)....not including the documents that she has to fill in herself. She also needs a job in her country and a letter from her employer. All of these documents she has to drop off at your national embassy in Moscow WITH PREPAID TICKETS and wait about 10 working days. These are the rules for the Schengen countries...the USA and Canada are almost as, if not more, complicated. Anyway, a normal TOURIST visa + travel costs + hotel rooms would set her back 2000+ US dollars for a trip to the US. She should be asking you for a lot of money! Immigration would consider her an overstay risk and never let her in without credit. Why should it be so easy for a gorgeous sexy girl just to jump on a plane and fall into bed with you? Furthermore, no respectable Russian girl would ask directly for money, but might accept some if you insisted.
NB...you should check your national embassy website in Moscow for visa prices and procedures.
There are a few scammers that are more patient and professional, who will take months before they scam you for money (though if you follow my tips, you should be able to spot them anyway). There are even a few real girls scamming, and professional gold-diggers (mostly in the Ukraine). One or two of them are very bold, and not even afraid to use their true identities. These scammers are harder to spot, and there is no easy way to identify them, all you can do is use your instincts and common sense, and DO YOUR HOMEWORK!
But a ground rule is: if you are looking for a Russian wife/partner, you must be prepared to travel to Russia to meet her. You also need to behave generously towards her; after all, you need to prove that you can support here (and her kids) if she migrates to your country. But if she turns out to be a professional gold-digger, which has never happened to me personally or anyone I know (but I know it does happen), you should try to be philosophical and treat it as an exotic trip to a foreign country, have fun anyway, and try not to waste too much money on her.
There are actually hundreds of perfectly nice Russian girls in Russia but you have to be prepared to go and get them. Chercher la femme. It worked for me.

yes, it does seem surprising. This particular girl has her own website and the scammers steal her pics from it and use them for scamming. She's not a scammer herself, of course not. There's a link to her site somewhere on Delphi.
The problem is that guys don't use their common sense and send money without doing their homework properly. or they think with their dicks. All they need to do is trace the IP address and they would see that the 'girl' is not writing from where she claims she is. Or they can browse a few anti-scam sites.
Last year, a Yoshkar Ola scammer claimed to me that he could make 5000 US a month, which considering the average wage in Yoshkar Ola is 150-200 US means pleanty of guys fall for it.
