well, I figured it was a scam when I got her first email out of the blue stating she got my address from a friend. I have a Mac and the Mac has a way of bouncing the email so that's what I did on the first email. She replied back thanking me for my email and wrote a long letter. I decided to see how far she was going to take this and began correspondence. I've gotten quite a bit of info so far and lots of pictures. Here's the address she just gave me:
Russia 644116.
City Omsk.
Street. 1- Amurskay 8 - 11.

Here's the ip addresses from the emails in order received:

and I've attached the latest picture she sent so far.

here's some of the info she's said about herself:

My name is Maria, I am 27 y.o. My birthday is
on the 22 april 1979. I not when was not married and I have no children.
My height is 5 feet and 5 inches. My weight is 114 pounds. I have blue
eyes and blonde hair. All that you can see on my picture. My speciality
is realtor. When I have finished college, I have studied at university.

I was born in the Chechen republic in the city of Argun.
However, I had to leave my city in 1994 when the war started - the house where I and my
parents had used to live was destroyed by a bomb. It was totally wrecked - after the explosion
there was nothing left on the place where it had been and… I never saw my mom and dad again.
That’s how I became an orphan. My father used to be a policeman and mama was an English teacher
in the school nearby. The Chechen War made people change their attitude towards the Russians.
They were no longer treated as human in Chechnya - Chechens accused them of starting the war.
I simply couldn’t stand all that humiliation - that’s why I moved to Omsk. Now, I live in the
city of Omsk, Russian government gave me a apartment because I was supposed to be a
victim of Chechen war. However, not all people in Omsk treat Chechen refugees well.

I work from on Monday till Friday and sometimes on Saturday. My working day begins at 8:00 and arrives
to the end at 19:00. [this is odd as a recent email stated she now has to use the internet at work, Omsk is +6:00 GMT and I live in -6:00GMT, which meens when I receive an email at 4:00pm my time, she sent it at 4:00am her time. hmm... don't quite fit]

Many Russian people speak, that happiness in money, but I do
not agree with them. I earn enough completely to satisfy the material
needs, but I am unhappy in love. My monthly earnings of 13500 roubles,
it about 500 American dollars. But this money suffices me and even is
possible save my money.

I already told to you, about that as, My parents were
lost after the bomb has got in our house. My parents were orphans and consequently now,
I have no, relatives at me are not present the uncle and the aunt, brothers and sisters.
I am very lonely and defenceless. I studied English language at school as in Russia,
studying of foreign language is the obligatory program. After school I have continued
studying at university, then on special rates of the English language. My mum taught
English language at school and consequently I studied English language at school and
during free time from work, mum helped me to study English language better.

Today I wish to tell about my culinary talent.
I very much like to cook. I know many recipes of
dishes. I like tasty and healthy food. It is very important for me because
I very much keep up my figure(body). And it's reason, that I should refuse
many kind of food. Especially I love The borsch is soup with boiled beet,
a potato, meat, cabbage, an onions, pepper and a bay leaf. But my favourite
dish fried a fish (salmon) in creamy sauce with spice. It has surprising taste.
I spend much time on kitchen. it is pleasant to you, if the woman
will make to you a tasty supper?

I can safely tell, that I adore travel. In this summer,
I travelled on rest to Turkey. I travelled travelled across Russia much: to Moscow,
Suzdal, Ivanovo, Saint Petersburg.

Hi my gentle, hotly loved XXXXX.
If you were now with me in Russia I were very glad to your affinity.
I have taken you for your strong and gentle hand, we walked with you on
the Omsk, It is very beautiful big city. We would walk on
old streets and would enjoy the friend the friend. Then I have invited
you in my house and at us the romantic supper was, I noticed gazing in
your eyes, and was lost, hypnotized, felt your heart beating. Yes, we
talked a lot at dinner, drank wine, and danced slowly, our faces close,
cheek to cheek, each of us whispering in each others ear, kissing tenderly,
our bodies firmly together moving gently to the music, desert was mouth watering.
I took my spoon and fed you a piece, as my spoon approached your lips, you
slowly slipped your tongue over it while looking in my eyes, and drew in the
food with an umm sound. At this time I felt your foot gently rubbing my leg
under the table. You invite me on slow dance, during dance your hand on my
thigh squeezing. Again, you reach over and kiss me, the stars lit up as fireworks.
We continue to dance and kiss from lips, to cheeks, neck, ears, hands, fingers,
arms, until our bodies have been consumed by lips. Then we go in a bed, I think
about touching your strong body and feeling your heat close to me. I want to
hold you tightly in my arms. I kiss you soft and deep. We lay in bed holding
each other closely. Your soft skin pressed up against mine. We'll look into
each others eyes as if we are the only two people on the earth. We make love
all of the time and I will satisfy you in every way, you will feel my love
inside of you. You will shake and shiver with joy as you acheive a feeling you
have never felt before. With my passion inside you, you pull me closer and deeper.
Our eyes locked in sheer amazement of the explosive passion between us.
We are in love and nothing else exists. We fall back feeling exhaused and
satisfied. You wipe the sweat from my head as you ask for more. I give you more
and more until you scream with happiness. My kisses so deep it takes your breath
away. I love to look at your sexy body lying naked on my bed. As you slowly take me
into your soft lips, you sense my pleasure and me. The pleasure you give
me is like nothing I've ever felt. I want you to love me forever. Wow, what a night!
In the morning for breakfast we start again with the kissing part. Our hands seem
to never let go.(Okay, to hot this is good). I have to get a shower now !!!
I do not wish to embarrass or offend you. It was a wonderful dream; hot passionate,
sexy, and lustful but also beautiful, tender and loving. When I shall arrive to you,
In me has collected a lot of love and tendernesses for you. I think we shall not
be get out from bed some days. (big smile)
Yours for a centurys Maria.

Hi my love XXXXX!
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 Austin costed 1290.70 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, 15 and cost 930.50 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 540.50 USD.
It was my last money. The number of the flight on which I resevered the ticket is
1:25 pm Depart Moscow (SVO) Aeroflot-Russian Airlines 315.
Arrive Austin (AUS) 11:42 pm Delta 6437.
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 part.
It is only 390 USD. I must pay this money before February, 9 , 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, 9, 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 fidelity.
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 XXXXX, 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 website,
You may send me money using office the Western
Union which is located in Russia.
OMSK , 644029
For Maria Grachewa.
To get the money, I should tell the employee of bank your full name, full
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 XXXXX every time.
Forever yours Maria .
