Name: Natalya
Email address:
City: Kaltan, near Novokuznetsk
Region: Kemerovo, Siberia in Russia

She supposedly works in a quality control for a coal company, thus the email address :-)

A sample of her letters:

Hello xxx!

I dont know where to begin But I will try.
I do hope that we will continue to write and that we can get to know one another better..... Whats the weather like in your city? The fall is at its height in my town - the temperature varies from +1 to -2C, the air is clear and cold I like all four seasons. I enjoy swimming, sun-bathing and camping in summer.
In winter I often go skiing - actually I just like snow and the winter weather itself.
Its so beautiful when earth gets covered with white downy snow. I like cycling and walking in the park in spring and fall - Im a very sporty person.
Sports bring health and beauty. My favorite sports are volleyball, gymnastics, swimming, cycling and skiing. I do my best to live a healthy life - I dont smoke, reject drugs out of hand but I permit myself to have a glass of wine or champagne on very special occasions. Most of Russian men are keen on booze and drugs, though.
Probably, thats the reason why I can find a man whom I will really love. When people
get drunk they become real beasts - brutal and irritable. Im have very quiet and
counterbalanced character. I am very slow to anger and am rarely upset with anyone or anything. I believe life is too short for bad feelings. What kind of character do you have? What else can I tell you about myself? You already know that I work in the laboratory that controls the quality of coal. I had been studying
in an academy for 6 years to get my profession - and by now I have been working for my firm for 4 years. I work about Monday up to Friday. About 8 morning up to 19 evening.
Sometimes I to work on Saturday (Probably on this I have not enough time for entertainment).
I travel for my work much but I have never traveled outside of my own country.
In the near future, me probably will send in business trip to Finland. It will be big entertainment. I hope that you understand my English. I studied it when I was at school and academy. I can both write and speak English but I havent practiced for quite a long time. Tell me, do you understand everything that I want to say?

Probably it is interesting to you, who takes all my pictures.. My female friend and one of my colleagues are keen on art - they are the ones who get most of my pictures.

I with impatience shall wait your answer.

I am in contact with the FBI and other enforcement offices concerning all matters with - etc. etc. etc.

FACT: The mailserver the emails actually came from are traced to St. Louis, Missouri. The website is housed at web server in St. Louis, MO

FACT: One of the logos on the home page of is that of a coal company located in St. Louis, MO - namely, Arch Coal Co.

FACT: When placing a phone call to the St. Louis Web Server company, a man with a Russian accent answers the phone. When asked where he is from, his first answer is Eastern Europe - when pressed for more information he finally says Bulgaria - when I say that his accent sound Russian, he says that his language is slovik also and tries to explain it away. When I tell him that he has a scam website on his server and tell him that it is, he says that he is just the technician and is not aware of this. He then says that he will tell the owner of the web server company. Still, two weeks later the website is still up and running.

I'm not sure why the FBI always seems to drag their feet on these matters, or if they are even investigating it fully. They may be, and that's not my job. I have been a webmaster for over 12 years and nailing scammers is sort of my pastime, passion and I feel my civic duty.

IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON ANY OF THESE 'WOMEN' (usually it is men running these scams, from Russia, sometimes even from Russian Crime Syndicates), then please forward all information, emails WITH HEADERS and all pics to my address. I am copiling a case for further filings with the FBI, Interpol and various other law enforcement officials whose jurisdiction this may fall under.


And remember, if a woman asks you for money for any reason from a dating site, here in America or elsewhere, then you can be 99.999% sure it is a scam.

This particular scam is a little more sophisticated than most, but it is still obviously a SCAM. It is running a little longer than others. There has not yet been even the hook asking for the money, YET! It will probably wind up being something along the line of, 'Dear _________, I have lost my job and am stuck here in Finland!!! Please help me to get over to the USA - or Please help me to get back home! Or, send me some money so I can buy you a discounted plane ticket to come see you, etc. etc. etc. Sooner or later, they will ask for money.

The employment page even runs a DIFFERENT SCAM:
On this page the blatantly show another scam - they are asking for people in the USA to accept payments from US clients, put the money in your personal bank account, then transfer monies to their office in Finland via Western Union, with you keeping 5% for your troubles. ho ho oh no! Pretty slick, but WHY would an international coal company need a private citizen to be their money transfer agent when any real client paying a real company in another country can simply send an international money order, or a cashier's check, or do a direct bank wire transmission, or use a credit card???? This is another scam. They are BLATANT on that one!

OK, send me the info PLEASE, so I can continue working on busting these bastards, which I now suspect are in St. Louis, MO actually!

A few years ago an American couple, husband and wife, bilked about $750,000 out of poor lonely American men using the classic Russian Bride / Visa Scam + Airline Ticket Scam - always using MONEYGRAM or WESTERN UNION to receive their funds.


All the best,
The scambuster!

I just started to receive emails from Nadia from coal biz in Finland. She hasnt asked for anything but these are her photos...what a scam! dont fall for it. She claims to have found my info from a dating site, but I have never been on one.
2006-11-05, 20:41:47 from United States  
Thanks for your web site. I have been sent three letters from Nadezhda aka Nadja. I 'm not posting the letters or pictures because they are already on this site. I gotta say who ever is behind this has got a hell of a game going. I'm tempted to keep corrisponding just to see how far they will go. I won,t because I'm affraid they may figure a way to get info. I don't want them to know but would love to set them up.

I have been contaced by Nadezhda from Finland as well. She uses the very same letters word for word I believe for everyone. I appreciate this site and like others I wonder why she would post this as her home address? If she wanted to be caught this is the ideal way to reveal yourself to your clients. Needless to say I am disappointed. Sure I thought she was probably a scam artist but I hoped not.

How are you? Hope fine!!! ******** GOT A NEW LETTER TO ADD TO THE LIST FROM NADJA ************
I hope I didn’t draw you away from something important.
Are you ready to read my letter? Aren’t you tired of all my stories
I’m sorry if I didn’t answer some of your questions. I’m trying hard to
understand your letters and write everything correctly.
I can entrust my secret dreams to you now. I used to talk about it all
only with my friends.
It is about the relations with men. I had several attempts that didn’t
work out very well.
I don’t want to talk much about it. It all was about deception.
That’s why honesty is what I value the most in relations! Do you agree
with me?
I want to trust my man and I want him to trust me! That's the main
I’ve been working outdoors a lot today. In the evening I had a chance
to write you!
I’m a little exhausted after a hard day at work and I feel so happy if
I see a letter from you in my mailbox.
I’ve been to many European countries on business trips Sweden, Norway,
Germany, Russia... However, I’ve never been to your country.
I’ve been watching your TV channels recently (CNN, ABC, Discovery).
You’ve got a lot of interesting stuff in your country (Disneyland,
NASCAR, Las-Vegas…). It all is so cool!!
For my country it’s mostly snow, skiing and hockey. LOL.
Write to me again! I’m waiting!!!
MY WORK IS You may call...
i dont have a computer at home.

I recieved several letters from Natalya. Siad she found me on a dating site. I was suspicious from the start but hey, when you get email's with pic's of a hot babe, you gotta respond just to get more pictures if for no other reason. I was messing around in some yahoo groups & much to my suprise there were several (at least a dozen) nude pictures of my Natalya. LOL. All of the pictures i recieved were actually of Alison Angel. I went to her site & wow, she is a 19 year old hottie. Wish i had a free membership to her site. I wonder if she know's about her pictures being ripped off for a Russian dating scam.

Who are those guys in COALRO.BIZ? Uncle? Dad? partners in the scam? May be they are the ones who draft the emails.

Yes she is writing me too.. very convincing..

And claims to be on a working trip in Finland, on a probation hiatus for work,

here's a pic I have not seen before, on this site,

I’m so happy to talk to you again. If only you knew how hard
it is to be all alone in a foreign country, without any friends. This is the
first time I have to come upon such situation. Your letters are the tiny
link that connects me and my heart to something close and dear in this country.
I’m not trying to complain - I like Finland and the Finns very much - but
it all is so different from the way things are in Russia. I like the city
I study and work in but I feel so lonely here. I’m missing a person who
will be close to me, who will be able to fill my mind with peace. As for the
rest, everything is the same as in Russia, the work schedule is the same too,
maybe just a little harder: )))The cuisine is pretty similar to Russian - the
only difference is that the Finns eat more seafood. It doesn’t bother me at
all - I adore seafood. I spend a lot of time at work and in the educational
center. Raising the level of my working skills gives me good future trends.
I guess it’s pretty good that I work a lot and don’t have enough free
time - it makes my stay here pass much faster. If I do well during the
probation period, I will be given a vacation when I come back to Russia.
I was so happy to hear it.
What’s new happening in your life? How are you, your health, your job?

I sent a response as follows;

Dear Miss Lopteva,

My name is ____________. I am the adult son of ___________ whom you have gotten to know through your recent email correspondence.

I regret to inform you that my father was killed late Friday night by a drunk driver. Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your friend! You may take comfort, (as I do), in the knowledge that he did not suffer.

I must say too, that I was a little shocked to discover that he had made a recent amendment to include you in his last will and testament. And while I don't agree with his decision, It is my desire to honor his wishes. You have been named to receive a portion of his estate in the amount of $370, 000.00 U.S. dollars.

My father's will stipulates that you must appear in person at the reading of the will on November 20th., 2006. As the executor of his estate, I will insist upon photo identification in the form of a driver's license or passport before I will disburse the aforementioned amount to you. The will further stipulates that failure to appear in __________, WA at the reading of the will, shall result in those funds being forfeited and equally divided among the rest of the individuals named.

It is my hope that, in light of your casual and brief acquaintance with my father, that you will not seek to collect this inheritance.

Please email your intentions to this address.



Two days later I got this reply with a picture...

mita kuuluu? (finnish) How are you?
I'm doing fine and I hope you are too!
I've been working a lot today. However, I have some free time to write you a letter.
Last evening I told my girl friend about our relations. My girl friend is a Finnish girl.
Her name is Noari. She's married and has two children. I often visit her and play with her kids. I love children and dream of having mine.
I think that family is the most important thing in our life.
I dream of having a really happy family! Do you think the same? Do you dream about it too?
What is your dream?
I love spending weekends at home watching TV. Sometimes I go to the cinema to watch movies.
I love comedies and melodramas. Do you like cinema?
I'll be waiting for a letter from you. Every single day it's getting more and more interesting for me to read your letters.
I'm waiting for them. It's such a pleasure for me to answer you!

It seems obvious that 'whoever' is not even reading the emails sent to them. They probably don't even bother until they send the 'hook'. (The one with the money request).
