Wow, did she send you any letters talking dirty to you before this? I am concerned about Jason being in tennessee, how come he can't be busted picking up the money if he is in the US? I have traced every ip address and not one of them comes from outside the usa. Any answers or suggestion? How long have you been dealing with her?

I just received the same e-mail about her friend's daughter, he is smart, I think she is a model, the true 'Maria' is a man living in the US, with connections in russia, maybe the model is in USA, she wore a pink t-shirt with the word 'caipirinha' a brazilian drink, I think caipirinha is not known in Omsk

Interesting part of the new letter that clinches the scam;she/he says that Russian law prevents people from receiving money if they are leaving the country so you should send it to her boss in St. Petersburg and he will give it to her.HOHOHO!First;that's ridiculous.Second,she lives in Omsk and works in St Pete?Not.And how amazing that her friends child needs an operation just before she is coming to 'visit' us(All 1000 of us HEHEHE!)What bad luck that her phone at her house syopped working so she could only email from work occassionaly,then her building at work has to be shut down for 3 months and shes off to travel the world to meet all of her true loves!Unbelievable these people are.I think their success rate is pretty low;if they send out 1000 of these ,maybe 5 or 10 at best fall for it,but hey,thats about 10K$ USD ,and maybe they have a string of 'girls' sending these out,so they make a good buck overall.As for getting nude pics,don't think they will do it but we can keep trying!

I am pretty sure after getting these emails, not only from her but others as well, that the russians must think Americans are rich and stupid. Mostly stupid. I guess we would be doing it to them if a ruble was worth a fuck! I think I make 20,000 of those rubles a month

After getting those emails,it seems like the only thing they did right was using pictures of the most beautiful girls;other than that a tree stump could have came up with a better approach.

Hi my love XXX,
You have received this letter?

Hi my love XXX!
Last night my girlfriend Lena has visited me.
She has been heart-broken, she sobbed. She has informed me, that she
had conversation
with the doctor who treats her daughter Inna.And the doctor has
informed that her daughter
Inna requires complex surgical operation for the eyes.Cost of this
operation of 4 thousand
dollars. Lena cried because of helplessness.She has told to me, that
she has not enough money
for operation. She has approximately 1900 dollars, but she need at
least in 2100 dollars.
Lena knew, that I am going to visit you and that all my savings are
intended for a trip to you.
I could not look how Lena suffers. I could not allow that her daughter
Inna became blind at
such young age. I have taken my money, and we with Lena have gone to
hospital.We have paid
4000 dollars which the doctor demanded.The doctor has
calmed us and has told that soon Inna will have surgical operation, and
all will be good.
I think that you would act as well and you do not condemn my act that I
have spent money
which intended for a trip to you: children are the most dear that we
have in our life.
Today I went to visas firm. I was told that my visa was ready at last.I
was most happy the
person at that time. But this firm not only makes visas,it also reserve
tickets. I decided
to use their service again. I was told that the flight to Springfield
costed 2290.70 USD.
It was too expensive for me, and I asked them to find the cheapest
variant. And they offered.
It would be on the On February, 13 and cost 1530.50 USD. I wondered if
it was possible to reserve
a ticket and to pay for it a part of the money this time and the other
part later. But they
refused and I was in despair. I asked them to help me so long that
tears came to my eyes.
And they agreed. I wasted all my money, but it wasn't enough. So I went
to pawnshop and
pawned silver and gold embellishments which I had from my mother. I got
250 USD and that
was enough for initial payment. I have paid in whole 1030.50 USD.
It was my last money. The number of the flight on which I resevered the
ticket is
11:00 am Depart Moscow (SVO) Aeroflot-Russian Airlines 241.
Arrive Springfield (SGF) 9:52 pm United 6875.
It is very difficult for me to tell you about it. But I have done
everything I can.
I paid visa. I have bought the ticket on a train up to Moscow. I paid a
part of the ticket.
But this money is not enough. I don't want to burden you. I want to
reach you with my own
money but unfortunately I have failed. Now I have to pay the remaining
It is only 500 USD. I must pay this money before February, 8 ,
Otherwise I will lose my money.
If you love me, if you trust me and if you want to see me soon, please,
send the money for the
ticket before on February, 8, tomorrow morning.
I understand that it is a difficult decision for you, but we must trust
each other. Any union without trust is impossible if it is a union of
wife and husband or a union
of boy-friend and girl-friend or a union of business partners. I don't
want to be hypocritical.
That's why I want to tell you following: I do not think that you would
like to give
the love to the woman whom you don't trust. So I am. It's a first check
for us. And much depends
upon it, may be everything. We must trust each other. That's why I was
the first who
made first step. Step to you.
Of course if you don't want you can not help me. It is bad but not
fatal. I will lose my money.
I speak so because I am in despair and confusion. Now, when we are
divided only with one step,
I am afraid. I am afraid that you will not help, and all my diligence
will be gone. I love you and
I want to be with you and the word of honour, your help is necessary
for me. I have not
calculated my forces. But together we are much stronger. It is much
easier to go through difficulties
and barrier together. I want to present you all my infinite love and
I did not want to ask you. I thought, that I can make all itself. The
loneliness has made me strong.
I have got used to live without the help, and to rely only on myself. I
very seldom address to
somebody for the help, but now I ask you to help me. I have made a step
forward. Make also
you a step towards to me. I hope that has not offended you. I love you
and I trust. I know, that
you will not throw me now when there is only one step.
Tell me XXX, can you help me? If you have an opportunity please help
me. I wonder how it is
possible to do.
There is an International Western Union (by the way, they have a
You may send me money using office the Western
Union which is located in Russia.
OMSK , 644099
For Maria Grachyova.
To get the money, I should tell the employee of bank your full name,
address, exact amount and some confidential numbers (Money Transfer
Control Number),
which will be given to you, when you send the money.
I love you very much! I think about you XXX every time.
Forever yours Maria .

***The above is the letter you requested to see. It was initially sent yesterday, but when my friend didn't respond right away the above was sent a second time today. Luckily he came to me to ask my opinion and I googled and came up with this site. Thank God! My friend is a single dad with 2 teenage daughters and doesn't deserve to be taken like this.***

I'm off the list!I told Maria(?)she would never see a penny under any circumstance.I asked for her last name,phone number,adress,place of work,and asked her to prove she was for real by holding up a sign with my name on it.Then I told 'her' that I would be coming to Omsk to stay with her during her 3 month vacation provided she could convince me the girl in the picture and writing were for real.The real capper was,when I saw the latest letter here on this site that I hadnt received yet;I sent it to her but changed it to 'Dear Maria'!I should have let it play all the way out in retrospect;I really could have had more fun with this.

I also noticed the last letter was similar to the one shown here back a few posts,but the part about the russian law preventing people from receiving money if they are leaving the country(LOL!)was gone,and the part about mailing money to her boss to give to her was gone as well;now she asks directly for the money to be sent to her in Omsk ,yet she gives a different last name!!!!Its Grachyova in the last letter,in the first it was Barinava.Guys;DO NOT SEND MONEY;dont be fooled by the bikini pics;save yourself some aggravation and cash and pick up a Victoria Secret catalog LOL!Same thing.
