Other Comments: Mikie hello! It's good to write you again! I think I'm a lucky girl to meet such good mas as you in Internet! I hope I will be lucky enough to meet you in the real life!!!!!!!! Also thank you very much for your photo, I really like it!
Yesterday I told my parents about you. They said that now they don`t
worry about me as before because now they know you are a kind man and can help me if I will need your help. You can show me your city and tell me about the life over there! I think I didn't write you I like cooking. 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 can cook many tasty things for you when we will meet! You know.. almost all Russian men are like bears! They are so rude, they can't be nice and polite, they don't want to have a family. I think you are not like them. I like to go to the cinema! I really like to watch a good movie with my friends. 50 percents of movies in our cinemas are Russian and about 50
American. Yesterday I've seen a great historical movie!!! It is called 'Nomad'. I really liked it so much! It was produced by Khazakhfilm (Khazakhstan is situated near Russia) and there you can see some good American actors! One of directors of this movie is a well known Russian director Sergey Bodrov. If you didn't see this movie find it and watch! I advice it to you! Actually my favorite actor is Johnny Depp and I like all movies with him. I've watched Pirates of the Carribean (part 2) some time ago! I think the second part is not as good as the first part. Have you seen it? Could you recommend me any American movie so I can watch it? What is your favorite movie and actor? Soooooooooooooooo......... what else could I say? I have a driver's licence but I don't have a car. My father has a Russian car and he gives me his car sometimes. I don`t like only cinema! I like theatre and opera too, I like ballet. Unfortunately there is only one small theatre in my city and there is nothing interesting. If I want to go to ballet, for example, I should go to Krasnoyarsk, there sometimes can come famous Russian actors and dancers but I can't go there often because it's quite expensive. By, the way, one thing else about my trip. Agency will help me to rent a room to stay near my future work. I will share this room with a few girls yet, it is usual procedure and it helps to pay the rent (it will be cheaper).And I have a question, is it normal if we will like each other may be it is possible to live together?of course if you
or somebody doesn't mind.
As you know I will stay there for three months but If I will like there I will be able to prolong my trip. I think I will be able to improve my english and you can learn Russian and I think
it will help us to learn each other better,who knows.Do you have a big wide bed?(joke). And now I have some good news for you! After sending this email I will go home, take my packed bags and go to Krasnoyarsk! From there I will fly to Moscow! I`m really afraid to fly on a plane! I hope my plane will not fall down! I'm really afraid!
It is several hours from Krasnoyarsk to Moscow.
When I come to Moscow and settle down I will write you an email. I hope today I will be able to write you. Please don't worry about me if you don't hear from me today, that will mean I was not able to find a place to stay and I will write you tomorrow.
In Moscow I will spend a week or maybe even more, I should make all final arrangements with my documents and after it I will come to you! I've never been to Moscow before and I'm so nervous now... I've never went somewhere alone and now I should go alone to such big city! I really want to talk to you by phone, but as I don`t have a mobile phone, I will find a public phone in moscow with international calls. You know... I had such great desire to start my trip already.. and now I feel myself like a newborn kitten who has even didn't open it's eyes... I just want to hug my mommy and don't want to go anywhere... but I know that's my dream to start a new life and I will try to turn in to reality! Soon you will hear some news from me from Moscow!!!!!!!! I`m sending you some photos of me on a Black sea on russian resort Sochi. I`m sure you will like it!!!
Hello!!! I'm so excited to write you again!!!!!!!!!! I'm in Moscow! You can't imagine how happy I am because I already started my trip to you! I still cannot believe I've done it! WoW! As I wrote you I was scared to fly on the plane but everything was OK and I'm still alive )))) Moscow is a really big city! I've been told the population of Moscow is about 10 million of people! From the Airport I went by bus... it was so long way... about 1 hour and 30 minutes. I've seen so many nice places in Moscow while going by bus! When I got off the plane in the Moscow Airport policeman asked me about passport and he looked at me like I am an enemy ))) I think all people here are a little crazy because of terrorism. Everything here is very expensive, not like in my city... and everywhere are big crowds of people! Everywhere is so many people! I feel uncomfortable because of it but I hope I will be OK soon.
I found a place to stay, I rent a room from an old woman. She is about 70 years old. She said her husband died 2 years ago and she
doesn`t have money to live, so she give in rent rooms in her apartment.
She is very nice woman. She said I have to be very careful.
You know... she said many girls from small
cities come to big cities, they are looking for a
better future and fortune but because they are from small cities they can`t imagine that their way to find the happiness can be not so easy as they thought... and some of them can end up as prostitutes or something like that. She said I should be careful when I will meet you!! But I don't worry about you! I feel with all my heart you are really nice man!
Sorry I wrote you about my worries.. I have nobody to write about it. My parents and my brother are worried enough about me and I don't want to make them to worry more. I think that's really good I've met you! I can write you about everything. I miss my parents... but I'm getting better with every hour )) I made pic for you here, so I will send it to you next time. Now I'm very hungry and I will go and eat something. I`m sending for you some photos of moscow that I found in internet. Please confirm the name of airport and be sure you wrote it right. I am afraid to make any mistake... I hope everything will be fine. please write me as soon as possible!See you soon! Great kiss from moscow!!
Mike hello,Glad to say that I am all right. You know I am in Moscow now and I think I have made almost the half of my trip. To be fair I am tired,everything is not so easy like I thought. It is hard enough business because of so many barriers on this way. I want you to know that you can't imagine how glad I am to know that you want to meet me,it helps me to be strong. Well,about my news. I was in travel agency today, nearest possible flight is Saturday, February 3.
Here is the info, about my flight, that I was given in travel agency:

I am so glad to see that we are almost near our goal,and our meeting wait for us. I think I will call
you from airport before my flight. You know I booked tickets on Saturday flight and I will buy them before my interview. People from embassy must be sure that I am not going to stay illegally, so I need to buy roundtrip tickets
(with returning date).
I wanted to ask you about electronic tickets but they tell that I can't use because it is their business to arrange all travel details and they have some extra money from all the things, you see it is just business.I think that you will be able to help me because I don't know anybody here and only you are
my hope now,I think everything in your hands and I believe that you will not leave me here alone.please borrow some money. I am sure I will be able to return all your money back after a few weeks,I will get salary and I will collect the sum I own from you. To be fair I am not sure I know what to say because I hate to ask but now I have no different way, you see. Please help me it is only money and much more important if we will meet in person I will do my best, you won`t be disappoined. I see that it sounds a little crazy but I can't believe that in the worst case I have to return home,they all will
laugh at me.I think it rests with you to decide and I feel that
you will help me because you are kind.
I have about 300 US dollars yet and I think I need about 1000 US dollars from your side with all travel needs and living here till my flight! I have some money but my flight from Krasnoyarsk to Moscow costed so much, because it's so far from Moscow. Of course it is my fault because parents told me that I have to travel by train but I wanted to do everything faster so I took a plane.... For truth I didn`t expect I will need to buy roundtrip tickets, but now I see that its a very strict rule. 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.and if you won't like me I will live in rent room and won't bother you
and money is money I will return it back in any case.I so much hope that you will help me .My parents gave me all they had. Thank you in advance.maybe i look like the poor outsider but I do hope you understand my position because it is always there is anybody
who needs the help.
I will call you from airport and I will wait for you there as long as you need,I mean if you need any time to arrive in airport.it is not problem for me to wait because I know that it is the end of my trip and I have time to improve my condition(some perfume)after long journey. I want you to see me in good shape! Kiss you and do hope to kiss you in person so soon. We need to do it pretty fast,you know I ordered all my documents in advance and
you see everything is ready so fast I need only your help because
we have no a lot of time till my interview,
if everything will be all right I will be on this flight!

I am full of energy and dreams! Kiss you again and do hope you don't leave me here alone,I want to repeat that I will return all the money and in spite of you like me

First let me say. Thanks for posting up this site!
Name: Swetlana Goloschapowa
I had my doubts, when I asked specific questions, and did not receive any answer, just another email.
After reading the other emails, which are nearly identical, only the personal info is different.
I have come to the conclussion, that it may no longer be just one person, this could be a network of young woman, feasting on our hearts like a succubus. So if the letter sounds close to identical, its a scam, even if the pic's are not the same (since the ones sent me are not), or any of the personal info.
I have decided to play her little game, and I am going to send money, (no not really) to that bank that a previous poster had stated. This is going to be fun :)
Other Comments: HER PERSONAL DESCRIPTION IN HER OWN WORDS:
'My birthday is May 26. I'm 168 cm tall (5.6.) and 51 kg weight. I don't know exactly my bust-waist-hips measurements, I don't have a reason to measure it because I think it's OK and my body is proportionate )) I take care of my body, I do aerobics three times a week and I go to the swimming pool twice a week.'
HER IP ADDRESS(S)
They have varied in her messages (possible proxy setup to hide real identity): 18.104.22.168 (resolves to Wardington, United Kingdom) & 22.214.171.124 (resolves to Yekaterinburg, Russia).
Hasn't requested money, but the same old, I'm coming to America because I can't afford Russia. Claims to be a dance instructor, educated at Krasnoyarsk Humanitarian University. Has a younger brother in a military school and parents of the ages 51 and 49. Always ends her e-mails with 'kisses' or something to the effect of sending a 'kiss'. Sends e-mails from 'Internet Cafes' in her words. I will continue to pass along information as she blindly tries scamming me.
