Hi I wrote to this person just having fun with junk mail as the letters came I wonder how long before she would ask for money but when she did I pretend to not understand and got her to phone me so not only did she waste time working me but she also paid for a toll call to New Zealand although not a lot of cost but I hope any guy who got conned can laugh that one of her johns conned her
LOL, yeah, I got the same spiel the other day. I received a email from 'her' through my cupid.com profile (I need to get rid of that thing). I'm always suspicious but bite just for the fun of it. Had a conversation with someone for a couple of weeks before they just stopped emailing me. Never asked for money or anything. This one goes by Tatjana Ovsjannikova. Same location/job/etc. Hasn't asked for money yet. I'm having some fun with it now and since 'she' sent me photos of a Russian actress, I sent a few pics of Bruce McCulloch from Kids in the Hall. He and I look frighteningly similar. If I am asked for money...and I hope I am...I plan to send 'cash' consisting of some bogus paper stuff with a few choice words scribbled throughout. Hmm, maybe I have too much time on my hands. Thanks much!

I received the same emails from Ekaterina Guseva. She also goes by the name Valerie Hmeleva, but I see in a picture she goes by another name of Valeria Hmeleva. She told me that she is leaving for Moscow right away to get her work visa, and all documents so she can come to me. She lives in a three room apartment with her mom, dad and her divorced sister that has a 4 year old daughter. Her husband cheated on her. Lives in Sanjsk, Russia. Talks about some lake named Baykal, and it's near Irkutsk. Then she goes on to tell me that she graduated from Irkutsk Humanitarian University 3 years ago, and that this place she graduated from is also the dance faculty. Then she goes on to say that she is a Professional Dancer, but doesn't want to have that profession cause she has no time in her personal life for friends. She said that she is teaching children from 12 to 17 years of age. She said to me that she also has a certifacate as a fitness instructor. Then she asked me if I knew how to dance, if not that she would teach me. She wants to come to my country to work as a waitress in a restaurant. She said she would like to work as a dance teacher, but thinks I know that would be impossible to arrange such work from the internet, because they would want to see how well she dances. Then she tells me that she will try to get this work when she arrives here. She then tells me her mother is a teacher of music(piano) and her father is an retired engineer. She also asked me if there is an international airport in my city or even an airport at all. She writes me from an internet cafe and says that there is no instant messenger. I then get her address. It is almost like those others I read. lenina 6 street, flat 6. She told me that she is looking for love and could not find it, so I am the only one she emails. I'm looking for a soul mate and wants to find an older man. She tells me that older men are much more serious about things and could take care of her. Her quote is 'The older the violin, the sweeter the music'. She said she believes in it. She ask me if I can be faithful. Then forget about ones age, cause age is just a number. Not only that her dad is quite a bit older than her mom. Then she goes on to say that she wants me to be totally honest with her. She then sends a kiss and says that I hope you will catch it by evening somehow.

Just to let you know, here is the last email I recieved. You should probably expect the same one.
Hello, my dear!!!
I feel so lost now. I don't know what to do. I hope you can help me.And we will be together soon.
I don't have the money and I cannot borrow it. Remember, I told you that
it is hard to find a job where I live. I tell you this because my family and friends cannot help me.
You are my only hope in this situation.
I know that it also must be hard for you to get the money but hard doesn't mean
impossible, right? I promise, I swear that I will work and return you all the money back.
I just don't have anybody to ask for the help.
I know that maybe I sound naive but somehow you have made somethng with me,
you gave me something good and it is hard to explain.
I was thinking about you a lot all day long today. That is really very strange.
We have never seen in person before but I know that you are not that person who
gives up at once. Please try to do something because we almost don't have time.
Soon i will have my interview and I still don't have tickets.
Somehow I feel that you will help me witn 1000 USD.
I know it is not good to ask you for money, I know that.
But if only you could be in my shoes for some time.
I am not after money at all, I just want to change my life. I know what is going on here with young people. Just a few young
people can start better life, the rest of them are becoming drunkers or prostitutes or criminals because they have no way out
or a chance for better life.
Small cities are almost dead here ( no job - no life).
No money-no possibility to come to a larger city and find a job and live.
I know that your country is also not perfect and only the strongest people survive, but still I just want to have future. I
don't want to live like my parents and save money for a few months just to buy me a new dress for school ( this is my memory
from my childhood).
I know that maybe the money which I can earn working in the USA is not big money for the USA but it is big money for Russia.
I want be thankful for my parents. I was dreaming I will be working in your country for some time and bring
earned money and give it to my family. You know my parents raised me and were trying to make me a PERSON. I saw how hard it
was for them and I want to be thankful for my parents for everything they did for me.
I dont have any more pics to send you but i would like to do it. Also i cant find a way to call you from where i live cause
it cost a big money.
I need to make payment as soon as possible cause i need to pass my interview for Visa. We dont have much time honey.
Please do it for me as soon as possible.
My heart and soul are full of tears...
If you can help me, please do and I will be greatfull to you till the rest of my life!!!
I still send you great kisses because you will stay in my heart forever like a man who made my life happier even just for a
short period of time and I thank you for this!!!
PS I am so sorry that i dont have a phone i wish to talk to you honey.

Here it is March of 2008 Tatjana has not changed her line at all. This person is suppose to be in Moscow now tring to come abroad. I have not been asked for money yet but I feel it will be soon. Thanks for the info, all of you.
This one is going by Ekaterina Tomina now. She tried me for $990.00 Then went to $550.00. Showed me the passport and travel arrangements. Wanted to come be with me. The letters that others posted are about the same. She changes the names of who she is sending to and arranges things a little. But still the same. I did not send the money thank god. It was close. Watch out for this one. She seems to use being a dancer in all her letters.
