It never ceases to amaze me how gormless some people can be. Do you really think that the letters you're getting are written or sent by the women in these photos, or that's it's even a woman writing to you in the first place? It's not!!! Mostly it's one of a few hundred guys in the scam triangle between Yoshktar Ola and Kazan sitting in their apartments scamming for a living. They use a female accomplice to collect the loot. They steal the photos from the net and scam about 20 guys at the same time. Most of these girls don't even know that they're being used. Give the real girls a break.
Here's a mail i got from a scammer last year. I'd written to her/him in russian to call her/him for being a scammer, and I was amazed when he replied (of course, it was a he). Needless to say, I reported him to all the antiscams sites i could. I've even seen the same photos in a thread on this website! I've had to correct the translation a bit to make allowances for the grammatical differences:

Greetings 'Anna'! Please do not offend my intelligence.
1. You do not read my letters. You ignore my questions. I write to you in Russian, but you do not see, because you do not read mine letters.
Scammer: Yes I see that you write in Russian, but I correspond with many such as you. I cannot write to everyone individually.
2. You send me the copied letters.
Scammer: Certainly. Then you are better than others?
3. You write to me using server by proxy from the USA....Typical dodge for the Internet-scammer. If you are frank, why do you hide your site?
Scammer: I use a SOCKS-server. Usually I use GPRS Internet and you all cannot equally learn where I am. You can see only IP of the operator of cellular communication.
4. Your photos are very beautiful, but you are not an actual girl. Probably, you are man named Boris.
Scammer: You are right, but not Boris certainly.
5. You are a professional criminal who deceives money from lonely men who only search for the partner. Why you do it? You are too stupid to work? Or too lazy?
Scammer: Here only it is not necessary to speak about nonsense. You are a fool if you want to find a wife in the Internet. It is not real. The average salary in my city is 150 dollars in a month. The choice is simple - either poverty or larceny. Now I earn 5000 dollars. Our validity does not leave a choice. You can though choke in beautiful words about honesty and nobleness but when would it be desirable TO GUZZLE morals? It leaves only the second plan. I very much doubt, that you are capable to understand it.
6. The scammer should be cleverer than its victim. But you are too stupid to be successful. If I could find you, I would kick your end face. *(didn’t know the Russian word for ass, but I do now)
- Do not reproach me in your dullness. I correspond with a whole division of sexually perverted muzhiks and everyone is a fool. And I am quite successful in the business. Be pleased, that we shall not meet, differently I would will thrust your leg into your задницу or end face, as you call it :)
Try to behave nobly and to not deceive money.
- Necessarily, sometime. Can be in a following life.

The last message that trash send me said:
Hello my love ******
I'm fine. I miss on you. I very much wish you to meet.
But on my way there were some difficulties.
If I have correctly understood you, you is simple to me do not trust.
If you cannot help me, I shall send you of money which you to me have sent.
In that case we can meet never.
I so have understood you be not going to help me.
Without your help I cannot arrive to you. It is very a pity.
My dream to begin a new life has bursted as a soap bubble.
Such my destiny means.
Tomorrow I shall send you of money, and I shall come back home.
I sent him several of my pics too... Now he will be laughing a lot of me but anyway thanks to pages like this I feel a bit more free... and of course, I advice don't send money to people who you don't meet or you aren't sure of their faith. THEY DESERVE DEATH!!!!!!!
Greetings who read me. Thanks.

Greetings to all: I came to this site before, hoping and wishes that my suspicion was not true about the person who was trying to enter into my world. But unfortunately, I was wrong. The guy I met appeared to be such a caring and loving person. We as people sometimes don't want to think that we are vunerable to fall prey to the minds of the wicked, but we are. I did everything not to convince myself this person was not a scammer. But i am definitely sure, he's not who he says he is. I just want to give a word to the people who has been emotionally scared by all of this, which appeared to be real to them.. We did nothing wrong, we didn't look for them and we had no clue of who they were. We simply answered a message and in return met these decietful people who has no respect for us or themselves. I've read so many stories on this page from people who has lost everything or almost lost everything. I can only thank God that i kept on searching and kept reading this page. I am disappointed only because i let myself fall prey to a person, who did not have my heart in his best interest only his. Keep your heads up and be wise and remember there are red flags, it's probably that we just don't want to reconize them. We who has been victims or could have became victims be blessed that they didn't take our lives. Emotional hurt takes time to heal and finanicial hurt we can someday rebuild, but life once will never come as it is. True love we will never find via internet. If you can't see that person, they sometimes are not who they say that they are. I can only speak on facts from my experiences which has occured to me. Be safe and be very careful.

I am so glad to see your letter again,I think I am a lucky girl to meet such man and I will do my best to meet you in real life! you know I can work in any city of your area because it is free choice and agency only helps me to get only travel documents and ticket, and I do hope that we will like each other and now I have the destination.The agency will also suggest some places to work in. I do hope I have met my right man!you know I have told you before one of my friend worked abroad last year and have met right man,now they live there and they are going tomarry. by the way now they are arranging the trip to Russia,(he wants to meet her parents and friends) I think if I feel that you are my dream and you have the same feelings we could think about our future together. if not I will just work and return back when the time to travel back. you know I am new here and I am afraid to make any mistake. I have one great lack,I am very impatient sometimes I can act without thinking. Sometimes I think that my dream is getting for real and it is so bad to be disappointed later. I want you to know all small things about me because it shouldn't be any misunderstandings between us.I want you to know that I am not angel and sometimes I can show my character.And I don't wait that you to be angel too, I just want to meet a kind man .I am very kind and I can forgive almost all I can't forgive if my man sleep with different woman, I don't know many nessesary words in english.I hope you can read between lines. A little more about myself!my favorite activity is fitness. I wanted to be as fitness trainer but I finished The Habarovsk State Univercity, trainers faculty as fitnesstrainer but I don't work on my profession because there are no good fintess clubs in my city, I used to sit at home and to do all housework,helping my mom. I would like to have good job, I may work dancing teacher, or trainer of fitness,you know I have a certificate. I worked as a trainer a year ago . and I would like to do it again .you know how many more younger girls want to get this job too!Alot of competition here. I want to tell you about things I like: I like to make barbecue and I so much want to have my own home with fireplace. usually I make very tasty ones and in principle I like to cook and it is not problem for me to cook something tasty and I don't like to visit cafes and restaurants,at first usually they can't cook weel(maybe only here) and second too high price.I like warm weather. and my great dream is to live somewhere on tropical island. Also I want to tell you about my dislikes: I hate our long winters it seems to me they will never end. I hate lies and unfaithfulness. I hate evil people and politicans I think they like to play wars, I hate any ars.What I like in a man: faithfulness, honesty. He has to be open- minded and open-hearted, also easy-going. and much more important he is kind,kindness makes our world! Are you kind and gentle man ?????I think my man should be kind ,it is great feeling after love,only kind person may be happy, all rude people are unhappy.or must be. A few questions yet, agency tells that I will have a room in nearest hotel near my future work but if we like each other may be is it possible to live together?I think we will enjoy life together. do you have your car?animals? I can't drive and I do hope you give me a few lessons, to be fair I have so many plans .I will find out all travel details about my flight this week. I will leave my town today in a two hours and i think I will be not able to write to you today or so.When I am in Moscow I will send you short letter to let you know that I am all right and they tell that it takes about two days toget all nesseary papers and Please don't look at different girls. I am the best(joke). Well, I will close this letter I think I am bore today,and please feelfree to ask.

Hi my USA anonymous friend,
I am the man who suffered the lies from that awful person in 4 prior messages...
I have to advertise the next message this russian (or wherever he is from) SCUM is going to write you is this:
My honey ! it is me,can you believe I am in Moscow. I can't believe ,it was
wonderful flight and they gave red vine in plane, wow,I have never tried
such tasty one!!!!!
I went the bus up to the Subway from the airport .In Subway long went, it
was so is delightful
I was in travel agency today, but my documents are not ready yet, it will be
I will go to travel agency again to get all info about my trip. And of course,
when I will get it - I will send it to you!
It is such great city and it takes a few hours to travel from one end to other.
I rented the flat for few days.
People said to me some nice places in Moscow while he was
Such a great city it is. I have no words to explain. you can't imagine how great
Moscow is,to be fair I wouldn't like to
live here,a lot of cars,people , voice and pollution.Ugly traffic and people
with crazy eyes.
When I get off plane in airport Moscow policeman asked about passport and he
looked at me like I am any enemy,
I think all people here are a little crazy at terrorism.Life here in Moscow is
expensive. I was going through some shops today
and it is much more expensive than in our town. Food and all the general things.
It is the same country but different prices, what a great change.
I think people living in Moscow are very cautious ,I think so. But I think that
I have done my choice and to be fair I don't want to
live here,it is not the city of my dreams. you know I am not coward I am not
afraid I know it is my chance to meet
kind man .I do hope I am right. and I think you are too kind to make any bad
things I feel it.
Well,I will close this letter ,please write as soon as possible!see
you soon! KISS . Great kiss from moscow!!!!!!!!! Elena
Of course changing Natalya for Elena or Elena for Natalya... I have the email you has written... IT IS THE SAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
People we have to make something!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We have to stop that mental retarded and his stupid plays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not an expert in informatics so I call to someone who could have some information from this human shit in order to capture and judge!!!!
He will NEVER read your emails, he simply send the same emails again and again!!!
It's sooooooooooooo stupid, he always copy and paste the same text!!!!
So the next this miserable wretched highly fool disgraced guy will write you is this:
Hello my dear ******!
it is me again and I want you to know that you can't imagine how happy I am.
I have a schedule of my flight.you can't imagine how much crazy Moscow is. It is
great fear to live here I think so!Our small town is
more friendly . well,about our business, I tasted my blood,such rule for foreign
visitors wanting to visit your
country! Thanks God, I am in good health, all of my tests are all right,I only
need some vitamins I think it
is the bad foods and long winters problem.I have to eat much more fruits and
vegetables.The doctor said!

Honey, I am so glad to see that I am almost near my goal,and our meeting wait
I think I will call you from airport and I will wait for you there so long as

it is not problem to wait there because I know that it is the end of my trip and
I have time to improve my condition(some parfume)after
long jorney.I want you to see me in good shape! I think everything will be all
right.Rather I am sure everything will be all right!.
My Dear, they have told in travel office that I have to show tickets when I
will visit embassy after tomorrow before my flight.
People from embassy must be sure that I am not going to stay illegally in your
country and I have tickets with returning data.it is
very strong rule. I have some money but my flight from Irkutsk to Moscow costed
so much(about 500$)
because so many kilometrs from there to Moscow. I didn't guess that tickets
costs so much. and I have to book tickets till in less than 2 days ,
because of my interview. I have not written date of flight because I do not have
all money to the ticket.
as soon as I will have all money and I will buy the ticket I shall write to you
date of flight.
I will buy the ticket on this flight. May be you could borrow some money?
I am sure I will be able to return it back in a few weeks after my arriving I
will earn some money and at
first to return all money to you.
I also have not written this date of the flight because I yet have not bought
but if you will borrow to me money I will fly on this flight, in most nearest
this flight flies almost each day.
in Agency they have told me that you may send it by Western Union. It is pretty
easy to use.
The guy from the agency explained to me how their system works. It is instant
worldwide money transfer system.
All you need is my name and my surname to send me the money. Once you do this ,
I'll be able to pickup the money in any local Western Unuion office in Moscow.
We need to do it pretty fast, because we have no time till my intervew,
if everything will be all right I will be on this flight!
I have about 450 US dollars yet and I think I need about
550 US dollars from your side with all travel needs and living
here till my flight!If everything will be all right between us I can stay with
you longer than three months,maximum I can stay about 6 months for
first time! We should change only the date of my returning flight. Or I can
return earlier if something is wrong!
Here is more info about Western Union. You find any local Western Union agent,
go there and send money to my name.
Western Union will ask you for my full name and address in Moscow where I am
staying at. Once you give them all the info they will initiate the transfer.
In just less than 10 minutes I will be able to pick the money up at any Western
Union agent here in moscow.
You will send me transfer info and MTCN( money transfer control number )
I will get cash. So I will need your full name and your address + the control
number of the transfer. (MTCN)
Kiss you many times ,I am tired today,you know it is hard enough to be in
foreign city. So many different emotions .
Kiss you many times! Elena! see you soon!
Ah, silly me. Nearly forgot to give you my full name info and my address.
My address here (the flat i am renting)
Country : Russia, City : Moscow,
Address : Nasosnay 4-18, zip 119027
Full Name ELENA MALKOVA (right writting in English)
I am sorry to send so dry letter but it seems to me I am like any drunker I
have lost my mind and my head works so badly,see you tomorrow. I am
sorry to make so many problems for you I only hope that you will be not
disappoined to meet me.
Here this awful fag ask you 'borrow' some of money... what a pity :((( she didn't know the flight to Moscow was soo expensive (lie lie lie lie lie lie lie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
of course once he had the money in his putrid hands, he will search for more, he will ask a higher amount like me (1500 US Dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hahahahahahahahahah),
and when you say him 'sorry I can't send you money, I'm poor and I live from a poor job' he will response some stupidity and then will search for another 'fool-victim'....
OF COURSE... HE WILL NEVER RETURN YOUR 'BORROWED' MONEY... YOU WILL LOST IT FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of them tryed to scam me to...
she asked money for a few drivers-license
i said no because i am almost broke XD
oh well i know enough about my bitch in russia xD
i leave here there and hope she dies xD
I am glad I looked up the flat address. I managed to not send any money. Though I came close. I should have known better than to reply to someone who refused to tell me where she(he?) got my mail address. I am just glad that I thought to search for the address or I would have been taken in.
