Guillermo hello,this is the info I have got from agency and
I think I have the problem. and it seems to me I need your help because
I must get this flight and nearest possible flight for me only in November and
I hate to imagine if something goes wrong, I have done too much to lose all now.
I know it sounds like I am pooroutsider but you see I have not time or somebody
to ask about help and I have nobody to help me, you know my relatives gave me all
that we could collect for my travel. I hate to ask but now I don't have any other choice.
I booked the tickets but I can pass my interview only when I pay for my tickets,
I didn't know about it. I ca receive my visa only after I pay my tickets so they want to be sure
I have a roundtrip tickets so I am not going to stay there illegally.
I think their rules are too strict...
The problem is that everything is getting more exspensive.
Oh, I forgot to tell you that the date of my return flight can be changed.
I promise that I will return all the money I borrow as soon as I can.
I will get salary and collect the sum you lend me, it is only money ,and I think that
it is not too hard for you to help me. You see I have such chance only once in my life.
I know you are kind man and I do hope you will be able to help me.
I was in the bank to try to ask them about credit but they tell I have to have something
to leave them and I have nothing to leave because I have only some clothes, some parfume
and it is all I have, and small gift for you from russia with love People in the bank
gave me an advise that if I have good friend (I told them about my problems and you )
that you may send me money very fast,
they tell that there is the system Western Union or MoneyGram
and it works very fast, I am not sure I know how it works but they tell you need
only my name and address here inSt-Petersburg and
I have to have only passport to get it in any bank of St-Petersburgand only
I can get the money when you send it,I think it is good way and like
I was explained it is very safe and takes a few minutes only.
I have about 550$ yet and I need about 840$ from your side, you can send me it ?
I am talking about American dollars. After getting money
I will make all payment and I will have an interview, it is a must.
I also have good news!!! They say I can stay longer than three months
I can stay about six months for first time.
I will have to change the date of my returning flight only.
I also want to say that you don't have to worry if you don't like me or something
in my charachter I will not disturb you. It is only your wish to share your time with me,
and money is money, I will return it all to you anyway.
I am sorry for such a cold letter but I am getting crazy to think that you can just
don't reply and I will stay here without any result of all my hopes and dreams , and hard work too.
Oh, silly me!
I almost forgot to give you my full name and
my address here in St-Petersburg( where I rent a room).
Country : Russia
Address: Karmavay 85 - 23
postal code (zip) : 160131
First name : Ewgeniya
Last Name : Skripuntsowa
You should put this info on their list and send me info when you send me the money.
I will need to know MTCN (money transfer control number) which will
be given to you when you send me the money and your full name.
Well I will finish this letter since I am a little tired and feel not well.
I know that it is hard decision for you because you don't know me well enough,
but dear please help me and you will not sorry of it I promise!!!
Please don't leave me alone in hard minute I will pay the same when we meet!!!
And I will have paper with my and your names when I will be in your airport
I don't want to miss you,
Kiss many times!!!!
With great hope,
Hey Aussie mate!...another alternative is that you send my scammer-fuck-you copy mail. Attach the clown pic for that subtle added impact. Russian grammar, syntax and curses guaranteed accurate. But don't send the English version becuse they won't read it. (Cyrillic version only works to and from Russian email providers, but not Yahoo, hotmail, gmail etc)
1) email title: cкамерство!
Пожалуйста, не оскорбляйте мой интеллект. Tы не живете в (название города), ты живете в Yoshkar Ola, преступный город в России. Tы посылаете мне украденные фотографии и копируете письма хуиня. Скоро, Tы будете просить деньги получить визу (невозможный получить без письменного приглашения от меня и билетов, также.)
Поэтому, я сэкономлю тас некоторое время. Пойдите отсюда, чтобы искать честную работу, ты несчастный жулик. Я не имею никакого интереса в ташем cкамерство. Oto'idi, a to jebnu! Idi na khuy!
2) Latin alphabet:
email title: skamerstvo!
Pozhalujsta, ne oskorbl'ajte moj intellekt. Ty ne zhivete v (add name of scammer's city), ty zhivete v Ioshkar-Ola, prestupnyj gorod v Rossii. Ty posylayete mne ukradennyye fotografii i nizkokachestvennyye skopirovannyye pis'ma. Skoro, ty budete prosit' den'gi poluchit' vizu (nevozmozhnyj poluchit' bez pis'mennogo priglasheniya ot men'a i biletov takzhe.)
Poetomu, ya sekonoml'u tas nekotoroye vrem'a. Pojdite ots'uda, chtoby iskat' chestnuyu rabotu, ty neschastnyj zhulik. Ya ne imeyu interes dl'a vashego skamerstvo. Oto'idi, a to jebnu! Idi na khuy!
3) English version (for your benefit only, not the scammer's):
email title: scam business!
Hello vile greedy one!
Please don't insult my intelligence. You don't live in (add name of scammer's city), you live in Yoshkar Ola, a criminal city in Russia. You send me stolen photos and poor-quality copy letters. Soon, you'll ask for money to obtain a visa (impossible to obtain without a letter of invitation from me and tickets as well.)
Therefore I will save you some time. Go from here and seek an honest job, you miserable scammer. I'm not interested in your scamming. Get lost or I'll kick your ass! Fuck you!
Hello my lovely
How are you today?
I miss you very much ((((
I so am glad, that you can help me.
I can not find words as I want to you.
When you will send money do not overlook,
That it is necessary to send me MTCN and your full info
I think minutes when I can see you,
I would like to collect the things right now and
to sit and the plane and to fly to you now.
To see you and to calm down in your hands.
When I close eyes I all time I present
our meeting with you. And you imagine our meeting?
I very much love you, my heart is ready to jump out of a breast
when I think of you. I feel that wanted such husband all
the life. I die without you. I never before was not so is in love
MY LOVE YOU MY DEAR HUGS AND A SOFT KISS ON YOUR WARM LIPS

Hi everyone, I came across with a scammer named Dorothy. She claims to be from Holland, but studying now in North Cyprus... (this North Cyprus thing is new, really, I have never heard of anything like that before!!) I have only one photo of her - stunning beauty, of course, white caucasian, blond hair, blue eyes, 25 years old. From the beginning I noticed some things on her story that didn't make sense - she's from Holland but she can't speak Dutch because she left to Haiti when she was a child... now her mom lives there... her father died, etc.... and she writes good English, but in some words, some expressions, we can notice the african way of writing English, not the Russian or Ukranian way, if you know what I mean. But notice, she isn't as foolish as most of the scammers, she only asked me for money after almost 3 months chatting on msn - the usual stuff, she has to undertake an urgent surgery, it will cost her 2000 dollars, etc., etc. A bunch of lies, of course - and she has no bank account, however she accepts money from western union, as usual... Imet her at the myforeignbride.com site
So you guys out there take care, and if anyone know this 'girl' just post a comment, ok? Take care everyone.
