I got all the e-mails too! except the last one with the two pictures of her in the black nighty and by the lamp post with the water background, so I sent an e-mail saying I had a dream about it and copied it to mine and sent it.LOL,LOL
Compare this picture of a 29 year old in yahoo personals. Look closely at the locket and chain around her neck and compare the length and size. Looks the same.

It appears she is also using the singlesnet.com website to generate interesting canidates for her to scam on. She started with these 2 photos and first posted a city and state in the USA. After her first message on the website, she leaves you an email address of 'rubyrose2@inbox.com' for you to contact her at, and then she will send you messages from the rubyrose2 once or twice but then changes her pics to show the blonde as being the one behind the profile. After one or two more messages, she asks you to start emaling her to this new address of 'Tidbit@Rofna.com' explaining that her email address of rubyrose2 is now broken and to please send all mail to the new tidbit address.

Under your letter I see, that people everywhere identical, and there is no distinction of what country there will be my future person. The god who created this world, it did not create geographic border so I do not see any distinction. I know that when at me will appear my unique loved persons then I shall move to him in any place in this world. I sure, that good peoples may live in any place, is especial when they like together.

I want family there all members only life the friend for the friend. I love open inclined peoples who prefer to speak sad things, instead of it hiding it - even on behalf of care. I am rather patient person, and I can at realization in my feelings while I do not understand a situation completely but if something does me angry - I - very much character. Similarly to my friends informs ?very difficultly to wake a good sleeping bear, but if you made it you would be better to escape? :-) . If address to the facts, I - very much and become very rare angry; may remember only pairs a situation - my lie of former my young man to me when it spoke me one, and actually deceived me. But about it I shall write to you later. And if to inform about attitudes with other world... There are only two parties - me both my family, and rest of the world. I like to prepare, and I like to create a cosines in the house. I always try to create a sweet home, and I really want to have the family :-) to finish family! I really live for whom - the one who will divide with me all pleasures of life and might be favorable in any situation. I very much like to travel. I earlier very much with mum went on Russia when some more the prices for tickets were not dear. Now I can afford to go with friends not far from city on lakes. We go to campaigns in the summer. It is very fine, at us very beautiful edge. All year I wait for a summer when I again can take the knapsack and I shall go on lake. A wood, a guitar, tent, unless it is not fine?

Now we live with mum. My mum call Veronika Nikolaeva, he/she is very interesting person. I always share the pleasures and griefs with it. She never will give up to me in advice.

Hello my loved friend Rusty. Thank for your new letter if it is fair I to wait for him all the day. I to be afraid, that you to not write to me. It is very pleasant for me to receive from you letters, and with each letter to find out more and more about you. With each new letter we to become closely and closely each other. All of us it is more to find out each other. I hope that you feel it. I today hurried up in the Internet the centre to see your new letter, and to write to you about myself. I hope, that I write clearly enough and much about myself. I shall try to answer all your questions. If I shall not answer your question mean I could not to understand him, do not take offence at me and write him once again. I think, that you understand, that the overall objective in my life is to find that only thing, my second part of me with which I can go through all difficulties of life. Together to meet pleasure, occurrence of children, to grow them, to surround with care, to present them the happy childhood, I so to dream of it!!! I think, that you to understand me, and your vital purposes are similar to mine, and I in soul hope, that when - that our hearts to meet. So residing at other country it will not be difficult for me If near to me there will be which person I there will be a love. I have ended institute 4 years back. When I studied it, fine student's it was time. Sessions, you know, that this such, do not sleep at night, worry, and when there comes day of examination, heart simply jumps out from a breast. I think, that you too have gone through it. I very much liked to study. When I studied, I was engaged Fitness. And now after the ending of institute I work as the trainer on Fitness_. This work helps me always to be in the good form. But, likely the most positive result in my work is her result. It is pleasant to see, how the client changes. The person in the good physical form feels like is more sure, and it is joyful to realize, that you are involved in this success also. This work gives me enough income for my life. Yes, I know, that Russia in a bad economic situation, but it only with am compared to other countries. My income here as approximately 100-200 $ per one month, It depends on that, how many clients are visited by ours Fitness - centre. We live with mum not richly, but is amicable. I not so small, but frequently to address for council to mum. It is very fine, when in family there is a mutual understanding. I always to dream to create such family. Only I to want to have three or two children. I in family one, parents have presented all love to me. I very much love honesty and decency. If I shall create the family, I think, that the main thing in relations with the husband will be full trust to each other. I think that it is a pledge of strong family. I want to inform you a little more on my life. I to rise morning at 7 o'clock in the morning, I prepare myself for breakfast. In the mornings I eat a sandwich and I drink coffee. Then I go on work. I go by the bus. Sometimes it happens that at a stop it is a lot of people, and I can not get in the bus and me to have to go on foot. Generally, I love walks, but I love slow walks when it is not necessary where to hurry up, pass on familiar streets, to go to girlfriends on a visit, to sit to drink tea, to talk. To me to like to be in a society of good friends. With them it is possible to solve any problems to share pleasures. It is always pleasant to surprise friends to look at their reaction. How I shall live without friends? I work since 8 mornings and till 5 evenings. But occupations go through the certain interval of time and consequently in working hours I have sometimes many free times. I always liked to work and irrespective of my mood I should be given on 100 to work. Work made with love brings pleasure to people. It is always pleasant for me to see smiles on persons of our visitors. In the evening I go in the Internet of cafe to look a mail, but it sometimes does not work, therefore if I shall not write to you during one - two days do not worry, I necessarily shall write to you as there will be an opportunity. Day off at me Saturday and Sunday. In day off I to like to read books to go to walk on city to visit a cinema. Besides in days off I spend a lot of time on homework?s. I like to prepare for houses, me to like to please close preparing them any tasty things. And my loved dish is a jellied pike perch, it very much is pleasant to me, and if we with you shall have, when be a meeting I necessarily shall feed you this dish. As it is impossible to explain in a word as it is tasty, it needs to be tried. In the afternoon in days off I am cleaned at home, I like, when the order of a house. I do not like when things are scattered, the dust lays on shelf?s, in a basket the dirty linen, in a bowl not washed utensils lays, you agree with me? Now, when we with you find out each other. We should trust each other because without trust it is impossible to live. I earlier too have trusted in the person, and he has deceived me. I to want to tell to you about it. I was madly in love with persons, and he only pretended, that loves me. Actually he scoffed at my feelings. Was such that he appointed to me meetings, promised to come to me, I waited for him, and he did not occur. I sometimes cried, because he did not come in the evening, at us in city in the evening not so quietly, and I worried for him. And he, the bad person, came in day or through two and spoke, that he had affairs and that he loves me. And then I have learned through his friends, that at this time he had a good time with what that maidens. he did not like to work, he frequently borrowed from me money, promised to give, but never repaid. And I forgave him because liked. I even hid it from mum. Has passed some time, and I have seen him in the street with other woman. They kissed. I did not remember, how have come home. I cried all night. I had depression very long. I began to work much, and began to forget this villain. After that case I have decided, that I shall never deceive in love people, I shall never scoff and play feelings of other people, and I to decide, that all this not for me. I shall not take out some more such moment in life. I any more will not entrust to Russian men. As at them only one ideas how to take a walk on the side, and all of them the big amateurs to drink. I to not want so to risk and break to myself life more. I to want to be simply happy and to live as the normal person. After that I to decide to find the second half with the help the Internet, and I to find you, and we to write each other. And it very much to like me. I to want to be happy with the man and to lead with him all life. This person should be more senior than me that he might learn me and my future children. I to wait from the man of u nderstanding, I to think, that this most important and, certainly, big love and care of me and of our future family. I shall try to make the man happy. But without his help, without his love and understanding it will make difficultly. I once again to want to test such feeling as love. I very much to hope for it. Therefore I to write to you. I to think, that you to understand my words. I to want to find out your opinion on all this. I shall ask to tell you about how you will spend the day, than you are engaged, how will spend days off? Tell to me about the friends, about the relatives. I with impatience wait for your letter. Your letters for me as a beam of the sun among dark day. Your friend from Russia Alena. mailto:nejnaya_kim@mail.ru

Hello Rusty, mine LOVE the friend! I shall be possible to name you so? I already for a long time did not speak such words to anybody. I was more and more and began to be convinced more, that I have already attachment to you and already I wait your letters with impatience. Your letters heat to me soul :-) May be, I present fairytale for me, but I feel very good about you and I, that you feel the same about me, I think, that you place in words less than you really think, only because words may not transfer all our ideas. Certainly, I knew, that I shall be the Course for love to any place in it world :-) , but I eventually thought Found out, that there is almost nothing in Russia which may connect me with this country urgently. Really, if to think. It usually connects peoples and the Countries. Friends, but real friends will be happy for their friend if she will find true love. The family, yes, but moving to other country does not make the Means breaking all communication. Work, maybe, but not for me. I do not think that it might be the problem with detection of work with my specialization and education. I really live for the person who will enjoy things which I creation and who might surprise me something too :-) I dreamed how we might at session all together sometime, and only at pleasure to be together! I really wish I shall live for my which unique person will like to love about he of me. Today since morning bad weather blows strong, mood bad and only an idea that I shall see your letter warms me this day. I want to tell to you about the childhood slightly. Mother and father of me very much liked and brought up me rather strictly. But then my father has died, and cares, in my opinion to education have remained to my mum. And I am grateful to her for how she has brought up me. I had many friends, and we with them played in a court yard of our house. It was carefree years, we lived and we did not have those problems which have appeared when I have grown. I went to school on good and excellent. I always remember my first teacher (Tatiana Andreevna), she has opened for us a door in knowledge and due to her I can communicate with people freely. I am indefinitely grateful to her for that feeling of human kindness that she to all of us has imparted. And we till now are friends of girlfriends and sometimes we meet, we talk, we listen to music. And today I send you a photo with the girlfriend, her name Katya. To like me various music sometimes when at me I listen to good mood dancing music and when to me I am sad like to listen to slow music. It seems to me, that with each letter between us there is something the greater, than friendship. We begin to trust each other more, we become more frank, you agree with me? I think that our souls approach. But while I one also search the partner in life. I want to continue with you relations, and I to trust, that all may be very good. I wish you good mood for these days, and do not forget me (the Smile!!!). I shall wait about impatience your letter and to miss the close friend on you!!!!

I want to tell you thank for pictures which you sent me, you are very beautiful, and I am grateful to you that you sent them to me. It will be very pleasant for me, if you will send me them again. And I too when I see your pictures and read your letters it seems to me, that I too know you long. And I think that my pictures too like you, and I shall send you my new photos. I feel how with each letter you become closer for me. It is pleasant for me, that you invite me to yourselves that I have visited you as the visitor; I could accept your invitation. I am tired from life here without the person whom I can grow fond, and you - unique who warm me, and give me force to live. You see, that we became much closer, than ever before. You can not imagine at all that you mean for me. You mean much. You can ask it is possible: why. I do not know. But I really know - that you for me became very much the close person. I never knew such beautiful soul as yours. You have opened it once for me and never closed. Now I open my soul for you. I give you my heart and my offer. I thought of you last night. I think, you unbiased and are fair to me. Now I completely trust you, and you began for me to relatives and the native person to whom I can open the heart. I speak you all this sincerely, I am not going to deceive you and to play with your feelings, and I hope, that you too will be fair under the attitude to me. I like to read letters from you. My heart always skipping when I see when I see the message from you in my letter box. Then I eat it as a whole lines and only the ambassador whom I read to this carefully some times. See, I become the seized aspiration from you. I do not want that you were put forward with my feelings. Excuse me if I am too expressive. Probably, you did not expect it from me? But something has changed a way of my life recently, and I believe, that it - you. I think of you each hour and each minute. It is a pity to me, that we not friends for a long time.

Hi Rusty! I think, that for that time that we with you are copied we very much pulled together and between us the feeling has appeared, I think, that we are necessary each other. I constantly think of you, you have taken a place in my heart. On work I became a little inattentive also my girlfriends speak, that I on myself am not similar, whether joke you have fallen in love. I do not know that to them to answer. I was never so is happy. I have absolutely changed about it my girlfriends and familiar speak. It is all because of you. I as though fly in heavens as at me the person to which has appeared is possible to trust and which it is possible too to me trusts. I do not know, how you will react to my letter, can, will count me more thoughtlessly. But I wrote to you, that I am very romantic and impressionable also I think that I LOVE YOU! I thought of our attitudes and concerning our feelings. I already on have become attached to you so much, that I miss each day your letters. I always, think of you. I of nothing can do with myself. I think that I am in love. Yes I love you!!!!! I talked about it to mum, and she speaks, that it is good, she thinks, and that I shall be happy. I have told mum, that you the best person and that I completely trust you. She speaks me, that I should not be mistaken. She speaks, that we should even closer study each other. She to love me. And she is simple my native mother. I think that you understand me. She wishes us happiness and the big love. I think that we should meet; we should see each other look in eyes because through the Internet emotions are lost and it is difficult to understand each other. We became frank with you, and I think, that you want to learn about my sexual experience. In Russia all men only dream to drag you in bed, but I do not want it, I to not want to be given to the first comer that it has taken pleasure. It something from above she gives love to the person to learn happiness in this life, and men represent her only as sex, I think, that it is not correct also I hope, that you with me agree. I want to be with the only thing the man with which I shall feel like loved. I shall give myself to it completely both a body and soul. We together learn all depths of pleasure. Our passion will be poured out for limits of love, and we shall enjoy the friend the friend all life up to last moment of our existence. Today we with the girlfriend walked on city, went shopping I waited for the moment, that you will write to me the letter, and I have waited it. I feel, what our hearts are beaten in one rhythm, and you feel it? I wait for your letter, whether it is important for me to know you share my ideas. Forever yours......

Alena, alias Elena (Vladimir, Russia)

I am a single male, no kids. A student. While on Yahoo personals I got a letter from Elena, the first one below. In it she said she was a salesperson in a shop. Then when I wrote to the account, she said she worked in a fitness center. I only wrote a couple letters with her and didn't send any money. But because the diction and because of the change of her working situation, I decided to google some of the rather strange phrases in her mail. I got your website and saw almost exact replications of the texts I was getting. Below are all the letters she sent, in order, and with the pictures. It's a shame. She was a nice looking girl. Regards, Jason

Hello my loved friend Jason. Thank for your new letter if it is fair I to wait for him all the day. I to be afraid, that you to not write to me. It is very pleasant for me to receive from you letters, and with each letter to find out more and more about you. With each new letter we to become closely and closely each other. All of us it is more to find out each other. I hope that you feel it. I today hurried up in the Internet the centre to see your new letter, and to write to you about myself. I hope, that I write clearly enough and much about myself. I shall try to answer all your questions. If I shall not answer your question mean I could not to understand him, do not take offence at me and write him once again. I think, that you understand, that the overall objective in my life is to find that only thing, my second part of me with which I can go through all difficulties of life. Together to meet pleasure, occurrence of children, to grow them, to surround with care, to present them the happy childhood, I so to dream of it!!! I think, that you to understand me, and your vital purposes are similar to mine, and I in soul hope, that when - that our hearts to meet. So residing at other country it will not be difficult for me If near to me there will be which person I there will be a love. I have ended institute 4 years back. When I studied it, fine student's it was time. Sessions, you know, that this such, do not sleep at night, worry, and when there comes day of examination, heart simply jumps out from a breast. I think, that you too have gone through it. I very much liked to study. When I studied, I was engaged Fitness. And now after the ending of institute I work as the trainer on Fitness_. This work helps me always to be in the good form. But, likely the most positive result in my work is her result. It is pleasant to see, how the client changes. The person in the good physical form feels like is more sure, and it is joyful to realize, that you are involved in this success also. This work gives me enough income for my life. Yes, I know, that Russia in a bad economic situation, but it only with am compared to other countries. My income here as approximately 100-200 $ per one month, It depends on that, how many clients are visited by ours Fitness - centre. We live with mum not richly, but is amicable. I not so small, but frequently to address for council to mum. It is very fine, when in family there is a mutual understanding. I always to dream to create such family. Only I to want to have three or two children. I in family one, parents have presented all love to me. I very much love honesty and decency. If I shall create the family, I think, that the main thing in relations with the husband will be full trust to each other. I think that it is a pledge of strong family. I want to inform you a little more on my life. I to rise morning at 7 o'clock in the morning, I prepare myself for breakfast. In the mornings I eat a sandwich and I drink coffee. Then I go on work. I go by the bus. Sometimes it happens that at a stop it is a lot of people, and I can not get in the bus and me to have to go on foot. Generally, I love walks, but I love slow walks when it is not necessary where to hurry up, pass on familiar streets, to go to girlfriends on a visit, to sit to drink tea, to talk. To me to like to be in a society of good friends. With them it is possible to solve any problems to share pleasures. It is always pleasant to surprise friends to look at their reaction. How I shall live without friends? I work since 8 mornings and till 5 evenings. But occupations go through the certain interval of time and consequently in working hours I have sometimes many free times. I always liked to work and irrespective of my mood I should be given on 100 to work. Work made with love brings pleasure to people. It is always pleasant for me to see smiles on persons of our visitors. In the evening I go in the Internet of cafe to look a mail, but it sometimes does not work, therefore if I shall not write to you during one - two days do not worry, I necessarily shall write to you as there will be an opportunity. Day off at me Saturday and Sunday. In day off I to like to read books to go to walk on city to visit a cinema. Besides in days off I spend a lot of time on homework?s. I like to prepare for houses, me to like to please close preparing them any tasty things. And my loved dish is a jellied pike perch, it very much is pleasant to me, and if we with you shall have, when be a meeting I necessarily shall feed you this dish. As it is impossible to explain in a word as it is tasty, it needs to be tried. In the afternoon in days off I am cleaned at home, I like, when the order of a house. I do not like when things are scattered, the dust lays on shelf?s, in a basket the dirty linen, in a bowl not washed utensils lays, you agree with me? Now, when we with you find out each other. We should trust each other because without trust it is impossible to live. I earlier too have trusted in the person, and he has deceived me. I to want to tell to you about it. I was madly in love with persons, and he only pretended, that loves me. Actually he scoffed at my feelings. Was such that he appointed to me meetings, promised to come to me, I waited for him, and he did not occur. I sometimes cried, because he did not come in the evening, at us in city in the evening not so quietly, and I worried for him. And he, the bad person, came in day or through two and spoke, that he had affairs and that he loves me. And then I have learned through his friends, that at this time he had a good time with what that maidens. he did not like to work, he frequently borrowed from me money, promised to give, but never repaid. And I forgave him because liked. I even hid it from mum. Has passed some time, and I have seen him in the street with other woman. They kissed. I did not remember, how have come home. I cried all night. I had depression very long. I began to work much, and began to forget this villain. After that case I have decided, that I shall never deceive in love people, I shall never scoff and play feelings of other people, and I to decide, that all this not for me. I shall not take out some more such moment in life. I any more will not entrust to Russian men. As at them only one ideas how to take a walk on the side, and all of them the big amateurs to drink. I to not want so to risk and break to myself life more. I to want to be simply happy and to live as the normal person. After that I to decide to find the second half with the help the Internet, and I to find you, and we to write each other. And it very much to like me. I to want to be happy with the man and to lead with him all life. This person should be more senior than me that he might learn me and my future children. I to wait from the man of understanding, I to think, that this most important and, certainly, big love and care of me and of our future family. I shall try to make the man happy. But without his help, without his love and understanding it will make difficultly. I once again to want to test such feeling as love. I very much to hope for it. Therefore I to write to you. I to think, that you to understand my words. I to want to find out your opinion on all this. I shall ask to tell you about how you will spend the day, than you are engaged, how will spend days off? Tell to me about the friends, about the relatives. I with impatience wait for your letter. Your letters for me as a beam of the sun among dark day. Your friend from Russia Elena. mailto:lena_amyr333@mail.ru

Alevtina Sokolovoi (Kazan, Russia) and Angelika (Chita, Russia)

I know each of you have a different format of how you want things addressed, so I will do my best to hit all things in which each of you request. Many of months ago, I placed an add on an Internet site, which I have currently deleted all posts on that site, due to the mass emails coming into this place (was very strange), just for the heck of it. I thought nothing of it, never paid a fee for the service or anything like that. The place was www.adultloveline.com After many of months of not visting this place, I started to receive emails from adultloveline, saying I have mail in my inbox. Thinking nothing of it, I went to the site and just read the emails. In these emails were the womans email addresses stating that they found my post very interesting and that they would like to talk with me more. I started thinking things were a little odd, when I started seeing a lot of these woman were coming from Russia. So I played along with the game for a little bit, but was always using much caution. I started to check the anti-scam forums that you all have been providing and I was starting to see some of the warning signs of possible scams. So me being fairly smart when it comes to computers, I started doing some tracking of these people. For the first person that provided contact. Here is her Bio: Alevtina Sokolovoi (This will be the first photo, you will see attached), dress: 420015 Republics Tatarstan, City of Kazan P.O. 30, Phone: No phone because she lives with her ill grandmother, Email address: Spring1976@inbox.ru. After doing some research via the net, I was able to trace this email finding the IP address as being 194.67.23.20 coming out of Moscow. The information that I came up is as follows: Person: Vladimir Gabrelyan, Address: 2/6, Pushechaya str., Moscow, Russia. E-mail: gabrelyan@corp.mail.ru, Fax-no: +7 095 7256357, Phone: +7 095 7256357. According to this womans/mans letters they were 500 km from Moscow, once I confronted this person, they got all aggrovated. *****MUCH NOTICE ON THIS ONE****** after they started thinking that I was on to them, I started to up the security on my computer and I started doing virus scans. I received a very beautiful picture of this girl and oddly that evening prior to calling their bluff, just out of normal matience, I did a virus check, I had a Trojan Virus on my computer, wasnt very sure where it came from. So I really started digging deeper into the matter, so I confronted them in an email asking if it were Alevtina or Vladimir I was speaking with, they got very very aggrovated, however there was a photo in there response, so I did not save this picture to my computer and just had the Internet open the file, there was no viruses on my computer prior to me opening this picture, oddly as soon as I did open this picture, a virus did appear. Another Trojan Virus.

Next person goes by the name of: Angelika (no last name) (The next set of photos). No mailing address. No phone number. Email address of Annlika@yandex.ru. This woman/man stated that they lived in Chita, was working in the Russian passport as a LT. or something along those lines, for the emails I no longer have, looking for love, I was the best thing, etc. etc. all the valid warning signs. I noticed one day, while I was on my computer at the time, I had received an email from this woman, looking at the time that it was sent and looking at the time it would of had been in their city, it didnt add up. There was actually a 5 hour differnce in time. This person has not confronted me since I have exposed them of the time difference. This person also claims that their English isnt very good, so I found a tool on the Internet to translate my English words into Russian, to better clarify myself. I really hope this helps you all out and you can add this information to your files, people like this need to be placed in prision for things like that, and do give the the good women of Russia a bad name. I have learned a valid lesson in all of these matters, and I do thank you all for your time as well as your very many of helpful tips. Jay

I have such feeling, like I know you long ago, like I come to you as to my bridegroom. I feel that I love you so much. I hope, you'll love me the same, when I arrive to you!!! My foreign passport is ready, but it will be remained in agency while visa is being made. The visa will be ready approximately in week, but to get it, I'll need to go to embassy to Moscow. There I'll need to pass the conversations, and embassy will decide to give me visa or not to give. But don't worry, in agency I was said that I will not be refused in visa. I'll have a work visa K-2, it will give me right to remain in USA for 90 days. The Agency will find work for me in USA, but when I arrive, I'll be able to find any other work, which is close to you. I am very glad that quite little time remain before our first meeting!!! I worry, even it is little scare for me, after all I have never travelled outside of Russia, more so, so far to America, on the other end of our planet, I have tremor on skin under one even thought about this. But I immediately becalm, when think that you'll meet me, and I'll be under your protection. You will, after all, be able to meet me in the airport? Tell me, in what airport I have to fly you to be able meet me? I wait your answer. Well, it is time to go, it is already late, but else I need to come to the shop to buy the products for supper. Good bye, Your Aljona!!!!

My dear Charles!!! How are you today? Hope everything is fine with you. As for me, I feel good just a little bit sad that you are not with me. You know, I got used to your letters so much, they are a part of me. I like you very much but I don't want to be betrayed again. I was in love with one person. It was a light and clan feeling... But he cheated and went to another woman. I was hurt but I was able to overcome this and for long time I have been alone. I was just afraid to have any relations again. Men in Russia drink much, smoke and get drugs. I know you are not such a kind, I believe and trust you. You are my treasure!!! Could you trust me, as we communicate only through the Internet? You have never met me in the real life! We have been corresponding for long time already and know much about each other as far as we can get from the letters. You are a wonderful person and the best what I have in my life. I think about us all the time, about our meeting ( and I should say this excites me so much!!!) In my fantasies we are together, one whole! And I am waiting so much for the moment when these dreams come true! I would like to ask you a very serious question. Could I? What are you realy intentions about me? Would you like to meet with me realy? Would you like me to come and visit you as a guest so we could get to know each other better? WHETHER YOU SHOULD SOLVE YOU WANT our FIRST MEETING WHETHER OR NOT?!?! Perhaps, you think that is too early but life gives us such a wonderful chance to be happy and we should try not to miss it. LIFE is TOO SHORT. And consequently it is necessary to be more resolute in life... Bye for now. Aljona.

Hi, my dear Charles!!! I am happy to hear from you. With each day you became a more close and dear person for me. I hope we'll be together soon. And then the life will be complete at last. You know every day I dream about us. Sometimes I think I am getting Crasy as I feel you near. I feel your strong hands on my body and imagine how it would be to make love with you. And after our passion nights, we would just relax in our bed and enjoy each other doing nothing, just kissing. I want to tell, I LOVE YOU!!! You can tell, that it is too fast and it is not possible to fall in Love with the person, after several letters, and never having seen a lot him!!! You will is accomplished are right!!! You should understand, I love you such to which I now present you, such which you have described yourselves.

Hallo, dear Charles!!! I'm very happy to get your answer. Now I hope that our relations will be long!!! I want to tell you about my daily life in this latter. I wake up at 6 o'clock, have shower-bath, make breakfast and have a tie. Then I have three time from 8 to 14 o'clock. At this time I meet with my girlfriends and we go on aerobics, 2 times to a week. In other days I am engaged in domestic affairs, I read books, I listen to the music. I like very much to go to theatre and cinema. In the summer I and my friends go on the nature, there is a beautiful small river near our city. At 14 o'clock I should be on my work. I like my work, here during breaks I can observe different sports events, on the TV, we have a cable television in the bar. I like very much your game - American football, it is very rigid and intense game. Perhaps, you and I will observe this game directly on stadium sometime. I finish my work at 23 o'clock, and I go home on foot, my house in several quarters from a bar. It is terrible to come back home alone but I have got used already. After coming home I have shower-bath, then I have a supper and I go sleeping, pending see dreams and tomorrow's day. Tell to me more about yourself. What hobby do you prefer??? How you spend your free time??? What do you do on your work??? My growth is 5,7 foots, weight is 121pounds. My friends call me Aljonka. You can call me so also. I have not been married and I don't have any children, but I have dream to find the loving men, and to create a family. I'll give this person all my love and tenderness. I do not have phone, but probably I shall call to you from a telephone booth. I think it's all. I'll be glad to get your letter. PS. I cannot frequently write to you, I write through Internet - Cafe, I hope you will understand me. Good buy! Your's Aljona!

Greetings. I am very glad, that you have answered on my letter. In this letter I shall tell to you a little about myself and I'll apply my photo to it. I have gone to Internet - agency to get acquainted with the man for serious relations. I want to get acquainted with the guy from America because all men in Russia are rough, everyone drinks vodka, and they don't respect women. People in agency gave to me names of a site and a login where I could look many men. After long viewing, my sight has stopped on you. I have read your profile and have understood, that I should not search any more. You have liked to me very much. I have chosen you because you are older than me. I think, that men in your age are more serious in a question of creation a family. I want have strong and reliable

anonymous from United States  

Hello. I am a single man of 43 years, I was contacted by this person through Yahoo Personals in January. Myself and (Irina) began a long correspondence over 30 emails. She sounded like a nice enough person. I sent her some flowers for valentines day and she never got them, The flower shop emailed me and said that she needed to phone them to get a good address, I sent the email to her and I assumed that she did contact them because they sent another email saying that there was no one by that name at that address, I figured that I had given them the wrong address or something like that. She never admitted getting the flowers or a letter I sent to the same address. I gave her the benefit of the doubt. On Feb. 19th the letter started off with my name but on the last line she said 'I love you DAN!' I was really thinking something was wrong so I started checking all the websites and I could not find a picture of her or any letters that were word for word. She said later that she had asked someone a word for darling ! Ok I believed her ( I kick myself now!!!!) Anyway as the days went by she was trying to get a visa and a passport to come here , I was expecting her to ask me for the money ,but she didn't. On Feb. 26th she asked for $504.00 USD she said that she had borrowed money and had pawned her jewelry to get the other half for her Ticket here. It was on a SATURDAY. She had emailed me a copy of her Visa and Passport and given me the flight info. I tried to check the websites and I finally went ahead and sent the money( Like an Idiot !)Hold on the story does not end here. She sent me more emails saying that she was very grateful and trusted me now 100%, She even called me for about 2 min , I only got 3 words in and then the call suddenly ended. I really thought she was coming .Then on mar 5th the day she was to fly out she emailed me and said that she needed $410.00 USD for terrorism insurance and that the money would be returned to her once she arrived in new York. Well I tried to find anything that would say if it was or was not true. I couldn't find anything so like a fool I sent the money !. (I hate myself) But I did email her copy of the visa to the US. Embassy in Moscow and they told me that no one had applied for a visa with that name. I wanted to shoot myself because by that time the money had already been picked up!. Then on the day of her flight she sent another email which I received after I went to the airport and verified that she had not been on any of the flights.( Just to make sure) the email said that she needed another 300.00 USD to show to the officials before they would let her leave the country. I told her that I would be unable to get the money to her and that's the last I heard of her. However, I did email President Putin and provided her email address and the details of what had happened. I informed President Putin that they could catch her if they traced anyone who checked that email address in the next few days. My hopes are that they did catch her because I emailed her back and said that I had the money for her and I have not heard anything back for a 10 days now. I also created a report with the FBI and gave Putin the Case # along with the Western Union Transfer #'s. I have also sent a request to the Ministry of Home Affairs of the Russian Federation. I will probably never hear anything back from them but it was worth a try. I think it is really sad, Even though the visa and passport are fake she keeps the lie going. It seems to me that there is a group of girls she runs with and one is in the picture with her. The flight scheduals were from www.expidia.com. The passport and visa show a different picture I think I have seen this picture on another listing. I also believe that these people look at these websites to get new ideas for letters. i just think that playing with someones heart is a terable thing to do. I have other pictures also. Charles

So Here are some of the pertinent emails to post: Here is the one I recieved through Yahoo personals from 'your_beatifull_lady' On 01/02/2005 07:29 pm EST, 'your_beatifull_lady' wrote:

First letter
Hello Charles. I very much happy read your letter - it is very good that you attracted me. I hope you have a good mood today as i am. I think that you have good rest in this weekend. I to think that at you in USA all familiar as well as in Russia congratulate each other on holidays write cards, send congratulations by mail, call on the phone. The large pleasure that you to answer me so is quicly. I hope that now I shall receive your letters each day and shall write to you each day. I would like learn much about you. I hope that it will be easy to us to communicate with you and we shall be honour with each other. I am the girl which to not love to deceive, walk around. My parents have brought up me and I nothing can do it with this))) If to speak honourly, sometimes it it is a little to prevent me, but I to think that is my good quality. I to think so because in my life there were no many bad people. Probably when the man sees, that his interlocutor is honour with him, and itself can not be honour to him to become difficultly to speak with this man. It is disarm him. And in further this man would not be desirable to be in such situation any more. But it only my opinion, and I to not apply for true. But I to trust in that what i to think. Ok. Probably I already to tire you slightly? Today there was a very warm weather. It is in the first such warm weather in this winter. Today when we with my girlfriend went in cafe, we passed through the main area of our city, and we have seen that all ice figures have thawn also kids with sad eyes go around of the large friable heaps of snow. Warmly as in the spring (about 0 C) But I to think that it not for a long time and will coldly again soonly. I to not love crude weather. And today it such. Already it is possible to start up the ships in brooks, and the heels on footwear fail in friable ice and to move really difficultly. Today it is possible to feel that the people not so such are weakened as three or four days back. Working week for all tomorrow begins. I am very glad to this, because already has become miss for colleagues and children. Tomorrow there will be a good day. Today I to have very good mood, because now in my life the very important man has appeared is you. And I very to value our friendship. Though certainly we few more to know each other, but I we shall hope that to communicate with you each day through the letters.For me it is very important. I want to know as far as important it for you. Whether carries away you it? What you wait for in the future? I hope I has liked to you. It would be desirable that the interest was mutual and alive. I very much would like that our New Year's acquaintance proceeded long. There can be you will think that I naive, but I simply would want that it will so. I to want to speak you about myself that you are better understand me and to know What I want. I am attracted in the man with wisdom and experience. to me very much to like when the man is self-assured and in the acts is reputable. Certainly I to not love the self-confident men which have emptiness in the heart. I know that all people can to be mistaken. Someone is more someone less. But if the man can recognize the mistakes, it means that the man can make much in the life. I to want that my man will be gentle. But when it is necessary strict. I want that for him be very important in this life to create family and to bring up children. The ideal men are not necessary to me. Also I to want that we had with him general purposes. And we could speak themes. To discuss questions, interesting for us, it is free. I to want that my the man be a quiet and did not spend the nerves on trivialities is too means that such man will not be a panic and to experience because of trivialities. I to want that my future man could estimate my tenderness, my love, my care. I to want that he never forgot what good I shall make for him. I frequently notice that the people very quickly forget good and very long remember bad things. The nature of the people is those. But if to understand it, it is possible to do differently. I always was the happy child - probably it in my genes. I never grief long time. And when I became more senior I began to understand that some people not such happy as I. Notwithstanding what they to have more in the material plan than I. Their families were the richman but are not happy. I began to ask the parents why so there are also they answered very wisely my children's questions. I am very grateful to the parents for that they have given me. I was the very happy child. And now I do not despond and I believe that my personal life to be adjusted. Differently can not be. Sometimes I little grief, that at me while was not present the favourite man, but I understand that soon all will vary. Now I to understand that earlier I did not reflect on it as to think of it now. That I really to want to change in the life - I to want to love and to be favourite. I want that in my life the family - family which we has appeared we shall create together with my favourite man. Now I shall finish to write. I to write this letter about one hour. Now I shall come back home. To take a shower. Then I shall include music and I shall dream of the future slightly. I to love different music. I very much to love Sting. Me very much to like simply beautiful and talented music. I not so to understand styles. I to know that now there are a lot of genres. But I to think that it for the professionals. I simply feel and I decide to like me this music whether or not. I shall hope very much to receive your letter tomorrow during a lunch break. I very much hope that you to understand even half that that I has written. Because I am not so sure with my English )))) Bye Your Irina. Irina

Hello my Love Charles. How you doing? I recently have arrived from the parents. The mum will be healthy soon. She has caught cold slightly. She strongly worries about our relations. I have told to her, that I with you are soulmates. I have told her, that I have found the man very good and honour. I have told her, that I trust you completely. The parents are very glad, that I have found you. Everything, that they want - that I was happy. You see, I am one daughter at them. You understand? And I fink that the strong feelings can be found in any place in the world. If don't understand by yourself where - heart will prompt. The parents and my friends agree with me in this question. My parents are married 28 years and they always were happy together. Their relations force me to believe in the real love. Unfortunately, I could not receive your letter. The manager of cafe has told, that server have something problems. I hope, that maybe this letter will come to you. It is very interesting to me to learn about your feelings about me?

I would be glad to know about what you think. Today I have received easy a trauma my finger of my hand. But it is not terrible. I went to shop and when closed a door in shop has hurt struck a finger.

10 or so emails later she ask's for the first money. Sat Feb 26 08:56:51 2005
Hi, My Love Charles. I hope that all goes well with you. Me and my mother have just returned from Nizniy Novgorod. And I want to inform you all news which I learned. I am very much worry now. I hope that you will understand my words dear Charles. I came in the embassy. And they have told me that my documents are finished. My visa will be open 27-Feb-05. And now they can reserve to me the ticket. They chose to me the ticket which approaches me in the best way. I was so happy from it. I think that we can be together very soon. I asked them how I can reach Raleigh (RDU) and how much it costs. They answered me that the ticket costs $1,435.73 USD. I asked them to find cheaper tickets, because this price is expensive for me. They answered that they had a cheaper ticket and the beginning of the flight 5-march-05. It costs $ 1,102.85 USD. I asked them to reserve a ticket. But they refused, because they have a lot of clients at this time and they can't reserve my ticket without advance payment. I spoke with them for a long time and asked to reserve the ticket for me without advance payment but they didn't agree. Then I wondered if it is possible to pay a part of the money now and the other part later. They didn't agree. I spoke with them for a long time and I managed to persuade them. They agreed. We agreed that I would pay a part of the price today and the other part later. It should be ' Round Trip ' and I should pay money here in Russia, Because this requirement of government. If it will be ' One Way Ticket ', That me will not let out from the country. I paid $ 350 USD. But it was little for an initial payment. Then I went to the pawnshop and pawned my silver and gold embellishments for $ 128 USD. It was my last money. I borrowed money from my mother. She is not a rich person. My parents earn a little money and they are not rich people too. My mother gave me 120 dollars which she had. It was her last money which she have. But she give me this money. Because she want to help us. I am the only child in family. And my mother helps me as she can. All my parents want is my happines. And consequently she has given me her last money.I have told that I shall return necessarily to her this money. It is very difficult for me to tell you about it. But I have done everything what I could. I paid visa. I paid a part of the ticket. But this money is not enough. I didn't want to burden you. I wanted to reach you with my own money but unfortunately I failed. Now I have to pay the remaining part. It is only $ 504 USD. I have to pay this money before 3-march -05 evening. Otherwise I will lose my money and ornaments. If you need me, if you trust me and if you want to see me, please, send the money for the ticket before 3- march -05 evening. 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 union of boy-friend and girl-friend or 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 won't trust. Also I would not like to give my love to the man which I won't trust. 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 the 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. IT IS BAD TOO BUT NOT FATAL TOO. I paid $335 USD for making visa, and I paid a part of the ticket- $ 598 USD. It is big money for me, but I TOLD YOU ALREADY THAT MONEY IS NOT THE MAIN THING IN THE LIFE. But I trust you, and I know that YOU ARE A MAN OF HONOUR AND YOU ARE A GENTLEMAN. I don't want you top doubt in my honesty and that's why I am sending you the view of my visa and information of my ticket. If you can help me I send you my coordinates. My girlfriend has told that you can help me with the help of some system. I have addressed in the nearest bank. To me have told that they have system the Western Union. They have told that It is very convenient office for me. There is other remittance system, but at present unfortunately it works not always because at present there is made some renovation and upgrade of the equipment and signalizing system. But system of Western Union works always and reliably. They have a website which called www.westernunion.com. I give you necessary elements for sending money with the help of Western Union. Surname: Pavlova, Name: Irina, Country: Russia, City: Sergach. I want to inform you the name of bank in Sergach. I think that this information will be necessary. SOYUZ BANK, YUBILEINYI, 1A, SERGACH, 607511. I think that I can use this bank to receive money. To get the money, I should tell to employee of bank your full name, full address, exact sum which I should receive and some confidential numbers (Money Transfer Control Number). This number to you will give in your bank if you will send your help. Please forgive to me all my words. I speak so because I am in despair and confusion. Now, when only one step is separated us, I am afraid. I am afraid that you will not help, and all my diligence will have no use. I need you and I want to be with you and the word of honor, your help is necessary for me. I have not calculated my forces. But together we are much stronger. We will pass through difficulties and barrier, it is much easier to do it together. I want to present you all my infinite love and fidelity. I understand that it is the big money for you. 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 help, and to rely only on myself. I ask somebody for help very seldom, but now I ask you to help me. I have made a step forward. Make your step towards me. I hope that I have not offended you something. I need you and I trust you. I know, that you will not throw me now when there is only one step between us. I am waiting for your reply. Kiss you. Your Irina.

A few more emails and It's time to ask for more money. Sat Mar 5 04:04:03 2005

And now I should receive insurance here. I am in the large city and I do not know that I must do now. I do not understand why I have learned this information only now.

They have told, that I should go to them today in evening and learn the information on the new ticket. I should pay 410 dollars to receive the insurance. I do not know where I can find this money. I am in another city. I do not have somebody familiar here. I should pass special medical inspection. It requires a little time. And I can have time to make it. Most important now it is to find 410 dollars.I have no this money. My friend has no this money too. I ask you my love that you help me now one more time. I hope only for you. In embassy I learned that they will return me this money as soon as I shall arrive in America. I very much hope for your help. I understand that you are upset now. But understand me correctly. You are my unique hope. Only you can help me now. They will give back money as soon as I shall arrive in you. I ask you to read this information very attentively. I ask you about the help.

I went in office Western Union here in Moscow to learn how I can receive money here. They have told, that you should send money on my name, but in Moscow!!!!!!!!! Because now I am in Moscow!!!!!!!!!!! And one thing - is very important, they have told, that my surname correctly in English is writing as PAVLOWA. I send you the information about me once again.

Then she adds some clarification to the last request for money. Sat Mar 5 08:09:11 2005
Hello my love Charles. After I wrote to you the letter today in afternoon, I went in embassy. Now I have the information for you. The agent of embassy has changed my ticket and I shall fly in Tuesday. I have the tickets. I want that you sent me money about this day. I should pay the insurance in transport agency. I know for what to me the insurance is necessary. This insurance is necessary on a case of failure of the plane owing to malfunction of the plane, actions of terrorism, or weather conditions. The insurance works only on time of flight. Therefore when I shall arrive in you to me will return this money. I shall wait for your answer tomorrow. I want that you attentively read my letter. This problem which prevents us to be together, it is possible to decide it. I have the information on time of my flight in you. It is the document, it name is Ticket. I want that you looked it. I have no an opportunity long to be in Moscow. I want that you made a decision faster, it is very important for me it very important for us. We very long wanted to have an opportunity be together. We should not lose this opportunity. I want that you was to agree with me. I very shall wait for your letter tomorrow. I ask apologies for that that because of me we have a problem. But I have no fault, because I was not informed in Nizhni Novgorod. When you send me money you should to change 'V' in my surname on 'W' (PAVLOWA - It is correct). I want that you understand me. This information I has learned in Western Union. And you should write - city Moscow in the document. It is necessary that I could receive money. I have no a lot of time to write you. I have evening and I should hurry up home. I hope only for you. I believe that you not leave me. I love you Charles. I alone in this city. I very much worry because of it. Please write to me. I believe in you. Forever and ever only yours Irina.

Now she wants some money to show the officials at the airport. But she did not directly ask this time. Tue Mar 8 03:43:23 2005
My love Charles. I am still in Moscow. I know that you do not understand why it to happen. I do not understand why it occurs with me. I could not today leave Russia. I do not know what I must to do now. I took away my things today in morning from left-luggage offices. I arrived in the airport. I handed over my things. I had the ticket. I had the insurance. I thought that today in evening I shall meet you. I did not trust my happiness. The worker of customs house checked my documents. It has passed well. But then he asked me if I have cash money. He has told that I should have cash money. This requirement of the American government. They speak that it is connected to presence of the large number poor Russian emigrant in USA. And now to arrive in America it is necessary to have cash money. It is necessary to have not less than 300 dollars to have an opportunity to leave the country. These words have killed me. My eyes were filled with tears. I did not know what I should do. I could not explain them my situation. Therefore I had no cash money. I did not know what I can do. I could not speak. I was lost in space of the airport. I saw as my plane departs. I saw that together with it my happiness departs. I stood and looked at these people, which have stolen you from me. I have gone to the main office my embassy. I spoke them that they work very bad. They did not speak me the complete information. And consequently I am in a similar situation now. They have told that can change my ticket. I have returned to them my old ticket. But I have no cash money. I have 20 dollars. But of this money am not enough that I had an opportunity to leave the country. I do not know, what to me to write you. All is simply awful. I can not receive your money, because now all banks are closed. Today in Russia a holiday - March 8 - day of the women. I always celebrated this holiday with pleasure, but now I hate this holiday. I can not receive money and consequently I should refuse the ticket and I should try to buy the ticket on later time. I am afraid of this city. Me try to calm Natasha with her aunt. But I can not calm down. I crying now. I want to be at home. I want to see the mum. But also I want to be with you most of all. What I should do?? But I do not know, how I can make it. I have learned, that I should have with myself 300 dollars, That me have let to fly to you. Why I shall learn about it just now?? I any more do not understand anything. I should have with myself money. I do not understand, why it is so difficult, to arrive to you. I am already tired, I now in despair. I can not ask you this money. You so much to me have helped already. Therefore I do not know, what to me now to do. I'll probably go home in Sergach on couple of days. I can not more be in this city. I should try to find some more money now. I simply can not know where find this money. I shall try still to ask money the friends. I tried to take to court in bank, but to me have given up, because I left from work now. I feel so bad myself, that could not justify our hopes. I can not ask money you, I can not to myself it allow. You such good and kind man. I do not know, that you will think of me now. But I do not want to be in this city. I want to be at home. I shall try to find money. But I think, that it is hopeless, therefore I in a shock. I am afraid, that never I can leave from here. I understand what you feel now. I understand that you are tired from it. I understand you my love Charles. I love you my dear Charles.

The last letter. From Irina <simpliy_a@mail15.com>, on Thu Mar 10 07:56:16 2005
Hello My dearest Charles. My Love, how are you?? I did not hear you already for a long time. What is going on???? Please write to me. What you think??? I very very much worry. I now in a very bad situation and necessary to me your moral support, your care. Your words are necessary to me. I can not live without you now. I have cancelled the ticket and has returned in Sergach. Excuse, that I have left from Moscow. I could not more be in Moscow, because I was in despair, when I have learned, that I should have cash money with myself to take off from Russia in USA. I had no more money. I could not more live in Moscow. I very much wanted as soon as possible to take off, but the circumstances have developed very bad for us. I with you have passed many tests, but I could not more be in this city. Natasha's aunt has helped me. She had any small sum of money and has given it to us. She has told, that I can arrive to her and live in her apartment, when I shall be ready to fly in USA. We could pay the tickets on a train up to Nizhni Novgorod. Then we has reached by the bus to home. We went by train very long (all day) and I am very tired. I have arrived yesterday late in evening and had no opportunity to write to you. I so worry. I do not know, what to me to do. Today I tried to find some more money. But I have no more valuable things, which I could sell. My parents have no money too. I have asked all friends whom I could. My old girlfriend Vera has asked at her job advance payment. She works in shop of sportswear. She has told, that can give me 2000 roubles tomorrow. On this money I can buy the ticket up to Moscow and couple of days to live there. But I do not know, when I can go in Moscow. I can not find 300 dollars. This requirement of the American government. Everyone, who arrives in USA should have 300 dollars with themselfs. I can not change it. Me will not let out from the country if I'll not find this money. I do not know can you help me. I do not want again to ask you. Because you already have helped to me much. I can not to call now. I have no the telephone. I called from the public telephone to you. I at all have no money now. The mum was very much afflicted, when has learned, that I could not depart from Moscow. But today we together went in church and we have ceased to cry. My Mum very much inspires me and helps me morally to not break. Oh my God I so love you. Why all is so difficult. Why I can not carry out our dream. Forgive me, that I could not all make. But I shall try. I shall move further. I can arrive to Moscow again. My visa is open already for a long time. And I very much regret, each minute of our time. I should as soon as possible arrive in you, while my visa is open. I want maximal time to spend with you. If you can help me, write to me please, when you can make it??? I very much worry. In embassy have told, that I as soon as possible should buy the new ticket. They want to help me, but they will not wait long. I very much love you also I know, that you worry not less me. I am very grateful to you that you care of me constantly. I shall wait for your answer tomorrow. We already is so close to each other. I can not live, if I shall not be seen with you. Your Princess Irina.



       
Ulia Gracheva (Yokshar Ola, Mari El, Russia)

I to was contacted by Ulia. She is very attentive with paying attention to some details. I was very cautious from the start I suspected a scam although I played along. I had sent her photos had over 9 emails back and forth in 3 weeks. If you really pay attention the info becomes inconsistent if you ask the same question a few letters later. Her pictures started out with a nice girl and gradually changed drastically she lost her smile even thou she claimed to be happier than ever since she loved me. Finally she asked for around 600 dollars for visa and travel. I had asked for her address and she never gave me a complete address until I offered to send her a laptop to make her troubles with the Internet cafe easier that way. She was not pushy. actually I am still playing along. i am waiting for her next email as I told her I would visit her. she asked for my address and phone I have not sent it. Ulya Gracheva, Eshkinina 551, 424033 Yoshkar-ola, Mari-El, Russia. Be careful, Frank.



Veronica (Kanash, Russia)

I am a single, white male, father of 2 living in Prairie Village, KS U.S.A. I was not contacted by a website, but I had put my profile on bride.ru 2 weeks earlier. In her letter, she claimed to have received my details and e-mail address from a service. Here is her exact response: 'The marriage Bureau has placed me in the Internet as I understand in Internet very little. It is a new kind of dialogue for me. Bureau gave me your address and now I personally answer you. I used a marriage bureau only for getting your address and now I don't use their service.' I have all the messages she sent if you need more. John C.

Letters:

Here is her first e-mail
Hello! My E-mail: nikkaint@inbox.ru I have seen your ad and I think that you are a very interesting person. So I decided to use the chance to get to know you. Hope I will be lucky:-) I don't think that the age and appearance is so important though I am rather pretty. The most important what is inside you and how do you feel about the life. I know this life from many sides and I am rather mature already to know how to make a man happy. I don't know if you answer me or not. But why not to try? I will regret if not to try. I think we should use every chance to find our happiness. Life is too short to use it only for thinking and dreaming. I try to act but not only to dream. So here I am:-) I will not write you much about myself now. I will just give you an idea of who I am. I work to earn for my living. I have a higher education and I am rather intelligent. The only one I miss is a beloved person and I want to have a family . I have really many interests:music, reading, books, movies, good conversations, sports and many other things which make the life wonderful. I like beautiful clothes and things. My friends says that I am cheerful person. I can't say that I have many friends. I know many people but I am very picky about the friends. Friend is a person who will be with me all my life. And I am lucky to have some really good friends. But I am very sociable that is why there are many people I have good relations with. I live with my grandmother and we are very friendly. I am rather independent. And work to be able to pay for the things I want to have in my life. In some words I can tell you, that I enjoy the life as it is and I love the life with all it's aspects. I am very kind ( I am not boasting:-) ) which hurts me often. But I am strong enough to overcome the hardships on my way. Well, now it is up to you to decide to write me or not. I hope for your reply. Have a good day!!!!!!! Veronica. It is my name. My E-mail: nikkaint@inbox.ru

Her second e-mail
Hello John . Thank you for your letter John . I am new in such way of getting acquainted and very happy that you decided to write me. So, a little about myself. I live in Russia. I am 26 y.o. My family consists of my mother,father and grandmother. My father is a driver and my mother work as a teacher of Russian language at school. I work as a nurse in the children hospital. I think that it is difficult but I like my work, may be because I like children. It is very interesting to communicate with them. I hope that you are looking for serious and reliable girl. I can tell you a lot about my qualities, but it is not in my style. After several letters you will have your own opinion about my personality. My today's sizes: 92 61 91. Height 169 cm, Weight 53 kg. What else? I suppose that in order to find common thing for us, I must tell you about my interests. No, not 'interests', it's difficult to speak about interests, so it will be better to say 'about hobbies'. I like sport, especially swimming, gymnastics and aerobics. And may be it will seems strange to you, but I like not only to do sports, but also I like to watch sport on TV. Sometimes, when I have free time I like to knit. Especially I like to knit sweaters. I think that it is enough for the first letter. Now I will be waiting for your answer. A little story about your life. Stop! But why 'little'? I hope that you will find time and will write me a large letter about yourself. I'd like to make our correspondence truthful. And I want to speak not like 'My name... My hobbies... I am looking for...' and so on. Of course this information is necessary, but it doesn't open person's character, it doesn't describe his soul. I think that we can better know each other through truthful letters and letters which will be written in free form, not like templates. P. S. I'd like to say that the aim of my correspondence is to find my future husband who will love and respect me. If you are not serious I do not want to loose your and my time. I know that there are a lo of men in the Internet who joke and have different aims. P.P.S. I want to tell you some words about how I have found you. I have come in a marriage bureau, and have paid them money. After it they showed me some ads of men. I liked your ad. The marriage Bureau has placed me in the Internet as I understand in Internet very little. It is a new kind of dialogue for me. Bureau gave me your address and now I personally answer you. I used a marriage bureau only for getting your address and now I don't use their service. Kisses you John. Veronica. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . :-) mailto:nikkaint@inbox.ru

When she asked for money
Hi my John. I am very glad to receive your warm words. It is very pleasant to receive news from the loved person. I wait for each your letter with impatience. Many thanks, that you have answered all my questions. I have transferred the information about you and me in travel agency. Larisa has told me, that the most suitable trip for visiting you in your country to me costs 800 USD. John it is really big money for both of us. But I think, that our desire to meet each other is much more. Our meeting is very serious decision for both of us as. I think about it much, I ask myself much. Life gives us chance once in life, and I think, that it is necessary to use this chance. I have come to a conclusion, that: I am ready to spend all savings, all that saved from my small salary. I am ready to spend all this to meet the person with whom I have got acquainted on Internet, with the person I sincerely love, with the person who after short time of our acquaintance became very much close to me. I spoke you, that my brother will give me some money for an our meeting. Today I and my mum talked to my brother about money. His answer was: Veronica, I can give you 250 USD. + I have some personal accumulation it is 100 USD. It is very uncomfortable for me to speak you but for full cost to pay my visit to you I need else 450 USD. I have to ask you : will you help me with the missing sum of money for our meeting? I understand, that it as risk for you. You know the girl from Russia by name Veronica very little. I want to ask you: do you trust me???. I think, that it is the first real check of our trust to each other. As I spoke you, that the most important thing in relations between two people for me is a trust on 100 % to each other. When people have trust then they have real love to each other during all life. I am sure that you as well as I want our meeting and will make for this purpose all necessary. In the following letter I wait your answer to my question about the help to me with 450 USD. If you are ready to pay for my trip I could advise you a way how you can do it ( Anna knows how to do it more convenient). I think that in the nearest time I will have to all the money for trip. I am waiting your answer and I don't want to waste time any more. Preparing documents will take about a month, but this process will start only after I pay for all. So now I can't tell you exact date of my coming to you. I hope that soon we will have chance to meet. PS John , I want to suggest you a variant of sending money for me. I spoke with my girl-friend who prepare to married one man from England(I talked you about her early). I knew that at first he had problems with sending her money but then they found a way. She said that now they use system E-gold and already three times they sent money by it. It is easy and very convenient. You can learn about e-gold on their site www.e-gold.com .Anna said that this method of sending money takes little percents for transfering. Today we with her made an account for me on the e-gold. She also said that in order to transfer money to e-gold account her man used site www.profitrating.com Please look at it because I know that it works (I believe my girl-friend and besides she doesn't have reasons to lie). So it could help us to meet in the nearest time. 1. You make your e-gold account. www.e-gold.com 2. You transfer money from bank account to your e-gold account on www.profitrating.com 3. You transfer money from your e-gold account to my e-gold account. I am waiting for your answer and I hope for our soon meeting. In any case I believe that our dreams will come true and we will overcome all difficulties. I love you. Your Veronica. mailto:nikkaint@inbox.ru.



Yana Krasnitskaya (Yaroslavl; Russia)

A.k.a. - Bulochka, a.k.a. - Yana Crasnitskaya (from fake VISA picture) My name is Jeff, i am 45 and single, I use various personal's sites one is WEBDATE which has free first e-mails, after she contacted me we exchanged our real email addresses and started coresponded for a couple of months, before she started suggesting that she would come to America to be with me as long as I paid for the VISA and tickets. When she asked for money for the VISA i started to do some research on dating russian women and scams. Lucky for me i came across the site womenrussia.com I purchased the Anti-Scam Guide , if Yana had read the guide she would have know all of the wrong things to put in an email. the Anti-Scam Guide was a script to her emails, as soon as i said that i would not send money for VISA (which the Anti-Scam Guide said that she would come up for the money for like she did) and then i would not pay for tickets, but would have electronic tickets (not refundable for cash) waiting for her in Moscow. Have not heard from her since. Jeffrey Miller. derelict@rocketmail.com. p.s. if it wasn't for the Anti-Scam Guide i would be out $1000.

Letters

Hello Jeff. I am glad to see your email. I am sorry I couldn't reply to your message earlier. I was a little sceptical about dating services in Internet and I havn't checked my email box. I havn't thought anyone may really reply to my profile. Now you wrote and I am very pleased to meet you. Thank you for your interest. Hope we will begin good contact and who knows what may happen. I guess at first I must tell about myself. My birthday is July 22, 1974. I am 30 now. My height is 165 cm (5'5'), weigt - 56 kg (123 lb). I will attach a picture of me, so you can see my appearance. I live in Russia. And I have never been to the US. But I hope I will visit this country one day. I live in a small russian town near the city Yaroslavl. The population is about 3000. I don't smoke and drink rarely. Prefer red wine or a bottle of good beer. I work as a doctor in local clinic. I am a practicing physician. Most people think it is boring, but I like it and find it very interesting. I like to help people to be healthy and teach them how to save their health. I have a university degree from medical faculty. I keep active life, interesting in sports and outdoors. Also I am interesting in history, geographics and social sciences. I have a lot of hobbies, like reading and listening to music. Cookery is one of my favourite things. Also like animals and children. As for my character, I don't like to tell about it. I try to be good person. Enough emotional and sensible. My best qualities: loyalty, honesty, sense of humour, natural curiosity and simplicity. I know that I can't be objective telling about myself. At least I want people think about me this way. What about religion, I am a Christian but not too religious. I think more spiritual. Marital status: single, never been married. Have had some strong relationships in my life but currently is free. No children. I want simple things. To be happy, to have someone to share my life with, to have family, to love and be loved. I am not sure Internet can help with it, but I like to try new things. Internet is good medium for intercommunication. And it is silly not to use that. I want to meet kind man with good soul and great sense of humor. I would like he could be my friend, life partner and lover. I want to feel his need in me, his support and understanding. I don't need any prince. He just should be kind, sympathetic, decent and honest man. I know that great distance may become the problem. So I want to start from friendship. I like to make friends and if things will not work between us we would stay in touch as good friends. Well, I think it is enough for now. I am sorry if something is wrong. This is my first experience in Internet dating. Tell me about yourself and what you think. Yours truly. Bulochka.

Hi! It is really got too cold here. We had -20 C today. I couldn't send my pictures by email to you. The computer shows some errors. I have just made my online photo album for you. You can see it at my account at Yahoo: http://photos.yahoo..m/kabuloch I will write more in a day or two. Very busy at work now. Take care. Bulochka.

Hi Jeff. Thank you for your nice reply. I enjoy reading your letter. I am very pleased you interest in me. Jeff I want us to keep our correspondence and to know each other better. Write me about your life, send pictures. I promise to do the same. By the way Jeff I want to ask you to help me with my English. I have been studying English for some years at University at first then by myself. I like to read books in English. And I still think I am not good enough to speak and to communicate easily. So if you will see any mistakes in my letters please let me know about them. I write it by myself with a dictionary and I want to improve my language skills. You know our meeting was a chance. I have already been surfing Internet for some weeks. The first time I used Internet was for my work. I read about new methods in therapeutics. Then I started to surf Internet for two or three times a week. And now it is one of my favourite things to do. Recently I have interested in dating service and decided to try it. I choose several profiles and you replied. :-) Others havn't wrote me. I am glad we've met. Jeff I use Internet at Internet cafe. They have several computers here for public use. I am here two or three times a week so don't worry if I can't reply fast. I will write you each time I am here. Jeff I still can't imagine you are in the USA. Sounds silly? :-) I have never been to the States. I know your country just from the movies and TV. I would like to learn more about it and your people. I think we could give each other more full pictures about our countries by corresponding. I also hope to visit the USA some day. I like to travel very much. It is great to see the world all over. I haven't travel much. I was in several russian cities and once in Turkey. I have a picture from there. My favourite city is St.Petersburg. Very beautiful place. Well, I am a little confused and I don't know what to say. I hope all this stuff is not too boring to read. :-) Jeff I have already told you that I want to find someone through Internet. I just wanted to say that it is my serious intention. I am interested in you and I want us to be good friends. Write me back. Waiting for your letter. I got your picture. Very nice. Thank you. Bulochka. P.S. I enclosed a picture from Turkey. Hope you will like it.

Hello, my friend. I thank you for your letter and your interest in me. Jeff, it is interesting to read about you and your life. I am sorry I couldn't write you earlier. I want to know more about you. Please, tell me about your family, friends and people that you know. What is your usual day? I will also tell you what you want to know about me. You wonder about my proffesion. I am a doctor. I am a physician, a general practitioner. I can treat many illness from flu to rheumatism. I work in a hospital, a medical unit at near military base. I think I can be called a medical officer. I work with the militaries. My mother worked here too and I couldn't leave her alone. Now I want to leave this place, find some job and start new life. I have good medical experience and practice. I have good time to correspond with you. I enjoy it. I can say it is becoming one of my favourite things. I don't remember if I told you about my hobbies or things I like to do for fun. It seems to me that people who wants to have some relationship must have the same ideas and goals in life and also the same ways for rest and fun. I like different activities like sport, walking, going-out and outdoors. I can't say that I am engaged in sport. I just like it. I like bicycle-riding, swiming and beach especially. Also I like to dance. I dance classic and modern dances. I am an amateur not a professional. I think the real woman should be beautiful both soul and body. My mother teached me to play piano. I also can sing. I will try to learn some english songs. Hope you can hear them someday. Smile. I enjoy cooking. I prefer italian and russian food. My favourite dishes are different soups and salads. I cook great Ukrainian borsch. It is a soup made of beet, meat, cabbage and carrot. Very tasty. Smile. As I said I like reading. I read different books, but prefer books about history and countries. I read a lot of Russia and America. These countries are great. As for fun, I like the same thing like all people. Movie, walking, theatre. I like to drink tea with friends in cafe. We talked about everything and nothing. Smile. I don't have a lot of friends, but all they are good people. To be honest I don't like 'empty' people. My friends are almost my friends from childhood and youth. They are already almost married. Don't think that I am close person. I like to meet new people and make friends. I am easy-going and I easily strike up new acquaintance. From another side I am not easy approachable woman. I am serious. I think it is from my upbringing. Jeff, I don't remember if I told you about my family. I live alone. My mom died about two years ago. And I have never seen my father. The most close person now is my uncle, my mother's brother. He lives with his family, but I am not close to them. His wife thinks my uncle is my lover. Actually we just friends. I think he is like father for me. Silly woman, she can't understand the friendship between man and woman. I am not angry at her. I am just sorry she is so narrow-minded. My mother was a doctor too, a surgeon. She was a member of charitable organization and she came to Chechnya when there was a war. Mother always wanted to help people. She was the kindest person I knew. She was killed there. The truck detonated at the mine when they transported wounded people to hospital. Everyone was killed. I wanted to come with her to there, but she didn't allow me. Now I know why. From my birth my mother wanted me to become a teacher. But I didn't. I had enough strict upbringing. I had been not allowed to date with boys until I got 20 years old. My mother was old-fashion person. Probably it is not bad. I loved my mother and respect her. She could give me good upbringing. We didn't have any conflicts. I always try to understand her. She loved me too and just wanted me to be happy. It was the most hard time in my life when she died. I thank my uncle, he was with me and supported me. I talked with my uncle about you. Are you surprised? We often had confiding talking. He understands me in full. I said him that I meet a man on dating service in Internet. And that this man is from another country. Uncle said that it is great. I asked him what he thinks if I would like to visit this country and maybe to move there. He said that it is OK, if I feel I want it. I am glad with this. Well, hope it is not too boring to read. Smile. You see sometimes man must sit and think about his life and about what he is and what he wants. It seems to me that I have this time now. What I want? Simple things. Happiness, family, careful husband. I put spiritual life to the first, not material things. I am not looking for better life or getting rich. I am looking for full life. Why I can't find husband here in Russia? I can, but I don't want. I see how my mother lived, I see how other people live in Russia. Yes, here is bad economics and I don't want to live here. I love my Motherland but I don't like the State. I want to have comfortable life and don't always be in searching good job and better salary. I want to dedicate my life to my husband and my family. I don't want to say that I am lazy. I like to work, but I don't want to dedicate my life to my work. I hope you understand what I am talking about. I see that many russian women try to go out from Russia looking for better life. They marry foreigners to get citizenship of another state. Then they divorce. I don't like them. I believe in marriage for life. I want to marry for love. Jeff, I want you to understand me in full, until we will make some any steps. Tell me what you think about this all and what else you would like to know. Well, this letter seems to be long, so I will close. Until next time. Yours Bulochka.

Hello Jeff. How are you? Hope you are OK. I am all right. I missed you these days when I was unable to read your letters. Smile. I don't know how it may happen so fast but I feel that we have been friends for years. What happened with you these days? Here things are the same. You know sometimes it seems to me that life stopped here. And you live the same day everyday and it scares me. I may live all my life and I can't notice that life is going away. Jeff you make my days another. Full of life and joy. Thank you for your writing. It really brights my days. Don't think that is just words. I always mean what I say... Or at least I try to. Smile. You asked me about my musical taste. I listen to different music. Can't tell what I like better. I guess music must be nice for hearing. I like some classical composition and also modern pop and rock music. My favourite classical is 'Moon Sonata' by Beethoven, from modern I like Madonna, Sting, Robbie Williams. Sometimes I like jazz and old blues. Jeff I can't still believe you are so far from me. Yes, I understand it but can't imagine it. Yes, computer and Internet are like a window to the world. It is fantastic. You know our acquaintance made me to think a little differently about people living in the world. Good change. Of course I knew about other countries and people but before it was like an idea, that I saw on TV, read in books and newspapers. But now I can feel it. Understand me please, I have just touched to different culture, life and people through you. And I saw it is real. Jeff I am a person that doesn't believe until he touchs. Smile. I realize you are the same person as I am. We speak different languages, live in the different countries but we want the same things in our lifes. I feel that I am a part of something very huge and important. Thank you for giving me this feeling. I want to travel all over the world, to meet new people and to get new experience. I really think it is great fun and useful. What do you think? I actually may look naive but this is what I think. Yesterday I met my friends. We usually meet at someone's home or go to our favourite cafe. This is pretty nice place. It is small and very cosy. They don't sell alcohol there so it is not very popular. It seems strange? I am not sure you know but usually russians drink a lot. So it is always loudly where alcohol is on sale. My friends don't like to drink too as I do. They are almost my friends from university or childhood, and a girl from my work. We talk, drink tea, joke, have fun. Very nice people. I live them all. It's a pitty we can't meet often but a time or too in month. They almost are married and have family and children so they are constantly busy. Well the matter is that I told them about you. They were really happy for me. They already asked when I come to you. Smile. I explained we are just friends but they still bantered me all evening. They say hello to you. I must already go. I will try to write you sooner. Bulochka. p.s. Jeff I really glad we 'met'. Smile. Keep more writing.

Hi Jeff. I couldn't wait when I can come here to computer to read your letter. It really brights my day. Smile. I am really happy to get your reply. And I like we both enjoy our correspondence. Your letters mean a lot for me. Jeff, yesterday evening I told with my uncle about you. He is exciting about our friendly relationship. I read him some parts from your letters. Not all, just some sentenses. Hope you don't mind I share that with my uncle. He is the only close person to me and I trust him. He thinks you are worthy man. But he said I must be cautious. I can understand his feelings. But for me you are honest man and I don't think you can ever deceive me. I know I may be mistaken with my thoughts about you. Only time will say the truth. Smile. To be honest we discussed about my possibility to move to you. Smile. Don't worry, it is just an idea. I understand that it is too early to think about it. But who knows. Maybe at first we would meet in person. Anyway my uncle said that he will support me in my choice and don't mind if I move. Jeff, I don't know what is going on with me. I found myself thinking of you often. It seems to me that you are more than just a friend to me. I hope I didn't scare you off with my thoughts. Smile. I wonder what you think about me as your possible life partner? Do you think that we could have common future? I understand if it is too straight question. But I would like to know your opinion. I am honest with you and I want you to be honest with me too. We must trust each other. It's very important in relationship. As for me I see you as my possible partner for life. I know we have great distance between us. But with our letters I feel you close. I believe you are the man with nice soul. I think personal contact is more better than letters via e-mail. But now it is enough to know each other better and see if we realy can have something common in future. Who knows probably we will meet one day and get married. Smile. Well, I continue to tell about me and my life here. My usual day is not too intersting. I get up at 6 o'clock and at 8 I must be at my work. It takes me about 20 minutes to get there by bus or about 40 minutes on foot. I like to go to work on foot because it is very invigorative. Morning, fresh air. Then I am at work until 5. About 6 o'clock I return home. Make some domestic things like cleaning and washing. Three times a week I go to gym, make some aerobics and dances. Sometimes I go to library, theatre, to my friends. When I don't want to go anywhere I stay at home to read a book or play piano, I like to learn a new music composition. In the evenings I watch some film or show on TV and go to bed. Today I got my salary at work. That small pleasant event always makes people to love their work if only for a day. Smile. I don't earn large sum of money. It is 3500 rubles (about $120 USD) for a month. But I am enough satisfied with it. I wish I got more money, but I don't want to become crazy about it. I saw many people who wanted to get much money. Some of them gained it. But they almost changed their personality. They can't talk about anything, only money. Yes, it is difficult to make good money in Russia. But money is not my life goal. For my salary I can buy something of clothes and it is enough to buy food. For russian standard I have less average earnings. I have a TV set and tape-recorder at home. I don't have a car, but I can drive it. I have my bicycle and I enjoy to ride it. Smile. Not sure how interesting it is to read about these things but I want you know. Jeff, how much do you earn? I am just interesting. You don't need to answer if you don't want. I know that we have different life levels. But it is interesting what are expenses for living at you. I pay about $60 USD for my flat and electricity. In winter I pay additional 20 for central heating. I am lucky I live in my mother's flat. This flat was given to my mother by the department where she worked. Actually it is not my accomodation. I can just live here. I have only one room and a kitchen. I don't want to complain of something. It is usual things here. I want to show you life here. By the way how much is Internet access where you live? I am paying about 50 roubles for an hour in this computer club (about $1.7 USD for a hour). Jeff, tell me about your the same things. I am interesting what is your life there. I thought about my life and recent events. You know from my last relationship with man I understood that the connection between man and woman is very delicate. It needs efforts from both sides to be supported and developed. You can't just date, make love and say words. It is more deeper. My last boyfriend was a photographer. Some my pictures were made by him. He was more than just a photographer, he was an artist, a creator. Our parting was not a tragedy. In the certain time we both understand we are not together and decided to break it. I don't miss him. It was the best we could do. Jeff I don't know why I tell it to you. Now I want to create full relationship and I know how to do

Anna Vshivkova (Otradovka Russia)

'anna' contacted me thru the Yahoo personals ads. I was suspicious at first, but wanted to give here the benefit of the doubt, so I kept the conversation going. I got suspicious 2 weeks ago and looked up known scam sand found matching pictures, so I decided to keep the conversation live to gather more data and photos, as the girl in the pictures is not hard on the eye at all, LOL.

Letters:

Letter 1

Hi, my new friend, Ted!
I am very glad that you have answered my letter. Thank you that you have found time for answer. I do not know what to write to you in my first letter because I never wrote letters and did not get acquainted on the Internet before. But I think will be correct if I will start to tell about me from the very beginning because I was first, who has written first letter. I really do not know as far as my life is interesting to you, but I think, if something will be not interestingly for you, you will tell me about it. Probably you will be very much afflicted when you find out that I live not in your country. But I very much hope that it does not frighten you, because I the same lady like many other ladies living in the different countries. I the same person with heart and soul. And if your interest is not limited by distance or borders, I really will be very glad. My name is Anna as you know. I am 29 years old. My birthday is on the Sep 10, 1976. My height is 168 cm (5 feet 6 inches). My weight is 61 kg (135 poubds). I live in the village of city type Otradovka. Otradovka is located in several kilometers from the city of Lipetsk, Russia. Lipetsk the big and known city. In the childhood I dreamed to become a film actress as all girls, but it were children's imaginations only. My education consist of three steps. School - College - University. I began to get education in the comprehensive school. After I finished it I entered the medical college. I finished it with excellent results and entered the Medical University. Till now I worked in a small polyclinic. I worked as a assistant to the surgeon. Very interesting work but unfortunately for me it was necessary to leave from this work. There paid a very little. Now I work as the manager in a bureau of registration of a marriage. This small bureau in our village. It is very interesting work. I love the work, is especial when I look at happy persons of a newly-married couple and you speak to them ' now you the husband and the wife '. I have a small house with a small garden. I live one, I have no children and the boyfriend. I already adult woman to me 29 years already, and I look at a life with a philosophical shade. But as though I did not try to inspire myself that I absolutely happy woman, I cannot do it. I have fine girlfriend, I have work and house. But there are things without which people cannot be happy. And for me it's not material things, but spiritual. I have written to you the first and it means that I am ready to share with you my thoughts. I am very glad and grateful to you for that that you have answered me because I have decided to take only one chance in dialogue through e-mail. And if my letter to you would remain without your answer, I think I would not use this way second time. Anyhow, I hope that you, as well as I, have interest in our dialogue, and I will wait your answer. I with pleasure will tell to you about it in my next letter if you really want to learn more about me. What your job and do you like your job, Ted? Have you ever had experience in correspondence with a friend from other country? I thank you for your answers beforehand. If you do not want to answer these questions, please do not answer. It simply my female curiosity. I send you my photo. If you did not see it in my profile. This picture has been made in my last birthday. I understand that all people have various tastes and interests, but I sincerely hope that my picture and my appearance will be pleasant for you. But if my appearance doesn't conform to your tastes and interests, I will understand you, of course. I will be very grateful to you also if you share with me your pictures. I thank you before hand.I am sorry once again that I did not answer your letter for a long time. Forgive me, but I had no opportunity to take advantage of a computer. I have no computer of a house and consequently I shall use a computer on work. But I shall try to write to you every day if you want to talk to me in the future. I very much hope for it. With the best regards.
Anna.

Letter 2

Hi Ted!
How are you today? I hope at you all well. I also feel well because you have written to me. I am very glad to this. Now I on work also write to you the letter. I spoke you already that I have no computer of a house and I shall write to you from job when I shall have a free time and a working computer will not be borrowed. In the last letter I have no written about my family and I want to make it now. I was born and now I live in Otradovka. I do not remember the Father because he did not live with us. I was brought up by mum since the childhood. She was very good woman and we lived with her very well. She was for me my best friend and the most close person on the Earth. Unfortunately now she is not present with me. She for a long time aieaea a cancer of a stomach and in 2002 has died. To me there were 27 years, but I felt like the unprotected child whom has remained alone. I very for a long time grieved for her death and could not believe that I have remained without my most favourite person - without my mum. I felt emptiness in the soul. I till now recollect her kind eyes, a soft voice and caring hands. I had very happy childhood because near to me there was my mum. Many people do not remember the childhood but I remember the childhood very well and I am grateful to mum for happiness which had in the childhood especially remember one case. Up to school I visited a kindergarten. Once I played with other children and have casually twisted a foot. To me rendered medical aid and have called my mum from her work to tell about happened. She has come to me and wanted to conduct me home. But it was hurt for me to go. Mum has taken me on her hands and to bear on hands up to a house though it was very far. This case has remained in my memory for all life. Then I have especially felt love of my mum when on her hands I felt heat of her body and her care of me. There can be you will think that it is a trifle, but for me this case is very important. I think that with you in the childhood there was something similar. I am right? Now I live one in the house. It is the small house but very cosy. After death of my mum I feel very alone. I have no brothers or the sisters, close relatives at me are not present also. Now the relatives for me is my friends. I have many friends but only two girlfriends for me close. It Olga and Elena. I to be friends with them since the childhood. Girlfriends of the childhood the most reliable and I can always address to them for the help and support in a difficult situation. Unfortunately now Olga has left to live for other city. She has married and husband has taken away her from our village. But we frequently write each other letters. Elena lives near to my house and we meet with her every day. Her care and support for me are very important now. I think hat the friendship is important and necessary for each person. How you think? You can tell to me more about yourselves and about your close people? If it will not be difficult for you. You can ask me about something also. I shall answer your questions with pleasure. It is very a pity, but I have a little time for the letter. I wanted to tell much more about myself. I hope you be interested in me, my life and my hobbies. I shall try to tell to you all this in the following letters. You will be patient? (Smile). With the best regards.
Anna.

Letter 3

Hi Ted!
How your mood? How is weather? I hope all well. I feel perfectly also. Today I had difficult day on work but now I have a little free time on work and have decided to write to you the letter. I want to tell to you about my interests and hobbies. I hope to you itwill be interesting to read it. (Smile) I like various music. All depends on mood. I like to listen classical music. I like Dunaevski And Chajkovsky. I like to listen simply instrumental music. Such music allows to relax and have a rest. Under such music I like to think. I like to listen to guitar masterpieces of Joe Satriani. I very much like group Dire Straits. I like Pink Floyd. They are not similar to anybody. It is great group. I like Madonna, Robbie Williams and George Michael and many others. In America many great musicians. I like many Russian musicians. For example Philip Kirkorov, Valeria or groups: Chaif, Splin. But you likely do not know them. I very much like cinema. In Russia create few good films. I like works of such directors as Tarkovsky, Konchalovsky, Mikhalkov. My favourite movies - Siberian Barber and Tired by the Sun. It's masterpieces of the Russian cinema. The American movies in Russia use huge popularity. The American movies is considered the greatest. I very much like the American movies and I like many American actors. For example: Gladiator, Brave Heart. Mel Gibson - good actor. I like films - The Sixth Sense, the Rainman, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Gone with the Wind, Magnificent Seven, the Godfather, Groundhog day, The Scent of a Woman. My favourite actors - Bruce Willis, Al Pacino, Kevin Costner, Samuel L. Jackson, Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks, Demi Moore, Kevin Spacey. I have some favorite shows. For example - ''Wildlife'' from BBC. They show extremely beautiful views of the nature and animals. I very much like to look programs about nature and animals. I like to watch games of NBA very much. It's a fantastic show. But unfortunately NBA games practically do not show. I like to look games NHL. Especially when show the best pucks. Likely to watch this in real life is much more interesting than in the TV. I am glad that our Bure and Fedorov have big popularity in your country, I'm right? I know that in your country is very popular the American football. It is magnificent show as well. The biggest ratings on TV have Criminal Programs where tell about crimes occurring during day and week, leaders and authorities of criminal Russia, juvenile murderers and rapists, addicts, maniacs, etc, because th crime level in Russia is extremely high. These programs like to watch the majority of people, but I do not like. I prefer to watch some musical and entertaining shows, but as a rule it is our programs and you do not know them of course. Now you likely think that I all days only sit in front of TV-set with full mouth of popcorn (smile). But it's wrong at all. Actually I watch TV-set extremely seldom. I have no time and forces to watch TV-set. My health is the supreme class. I do not brag. I really have good health because I always support me in the good form. I every morning jog, I try to spend time in the air as much as possible. I have no car and I use transport extremely seldom. I get contrast shower. I since the childhood lived in conditions of cold winter and damp autumn. Such climate toughens health very well. I do not smoke and I do not drink alcoholic drinks. I really like a healthy way of life. And I am proud of it. My hobby if it is possible so to say, this sewing and knitting of clothes. In the winter I love a ski and skates. It is possible endlessly to speak that I like, but I want to tell that I do not like also. I do not like envious people. I do not love lie and a deceit. I do not like cruelty and roughness. I also do not love people drinking alcohol a lot of. But I repeatedly heard that Americans do not use alcohol as in Russia. I think that each person should know the measure of opportunities. This quality of strong-willed and responsible people. I not against if a man like to sit in a bar with friends together a mug of beer or to invite lady in restaurant to a glass of champagne. Also to not like me bad meal and cloudy days. (Smile) I should finish the letter. I have no more time for letter. I shall write to you later still. I shall wait for the letter from you.
Anna.

Letter 4


Hi my Ted.
Today fine day and I have fine mood. How your mood? I hope all well. I would like to be sorry. I could not write to you. On work the computer has been broken. Him carried on repair Lipetsk. And only today him have brought. You likely have overlooked already about me. All the week long I waited this computer. I could not fall asleep these nights. You it is constant at me in my ideas. I have very strongly become bored on you. Forgive me please. You not should angry on me. You have written such big letter (smile). But all the same I am very glad. Why you write nothing about yourself? You do not like to tell about yourselves? I hope you will tell more about yourself like me, OK? I send you my pictures, but you have not sent me any! I think it not fairly. I asked you already several times, but you do not want to send me your picture. I have found a way to send you my pictures though it was difficult. But I have found. If I would not send you any picture how you would react? I think you would not be glad. But I have sent. Why you cannot find for the sake of me a way to send me your pictures? It would be fair. Why you cannot make small effort and make so that I get pleasure to watch your picture? I would be glad to have any your picture in a computer. I to you have not big request. Please do not send many pictures. I am on work and at us one computer and very bad communication. My time is limited. I can have problems from for it. Please do not become angry about me for it. I shall be very grateful. Yesterday I had bad mood. Yesterday there was a thawing weather. I spoke you already I live in th house. My house beautiful and cosy, but old and in some places during a thawing a leak a roof. It very much afflicts me, but I cannot repair a roof of a house itself. Man's hands are necessary for this purpose. I caused recently the carpenter and he repaired a roof, but has told that it is necessary for me to change all roof. Yesterday, during a thawing I have decided to change a roof in the near future. It now is necessary especially. Already the end winter and in the spring in Russia always is a lot of rains and consequently repair is obligatory. I probably have tired you with my small problem. Fairly to tell I want to repair the house completely. But it only my plans for the future. Elena has told that she will help me with repair. She always offers me the help. I am glad that I have such good girlfriend. She for me as native and we frequently spend time together. By the way, I spoke her about you and she is very glad, that we with you write each other. Elena speaks that is necessary for me good the man which would help me and loved me. Really frequently it happens me very alone by one, but I do not despair and I believe in the good destiny. I believe in the God and in his help. I do not remember spoke you whether or not but I have a cat. His name Barsik. He is very beautiful cat. I like to look after and play with him. Barsik very tender cat and loves me also. Every day he meets me when I come home and sees off me for work. You will laugh but for me it is very
important to know that me someone waits for a house, even if it simply my
kitten. You love pets? I hope that like. I heard that if the person loves pets and to care of them he the good family man. I believe in it. Elena also has a cat of a house and our cats like to play with each other. Forgive me I probably is tell with enthusiasm I about it, it is probable to you not interestingly, but I wanted to tell to you about most close and dear to me. In the days off I shall be probably prepared for repair and search for people which can to help me. I in the ideas already present my house after repair. If at me all to be that it will be a fine and cosy house. Forgive me Ted probably I has written the boring letter, but I thought that Ted it will be pleasant for you to know my ideas. Inform me that you are interested about me I shall tell to you necessarily. I send you a picture of me with Elena. This picture is made in city Lipetsk. At it uncle Vanja there lives. He very good person. I shall finish the letter and I shall try to write to you soon. By the way, Elena asked me to tell to you Hi from her. I have told to her about you, I hope you are not offended on me for it. With the best regards.
Anna.

Letter 5

I again would like to apologize that at me again problems with my computer. All troubles were rolled on me an once. About the beginning the computer has broken. My letter box has then broken. I do not know as to ask you a pardon. I hope you have not strongly taken offence at me. Forgive me please. I so waited your letter. I thought that you do not want to communicate with me more. But today I have received your short message and so was delighted. I very much would like that it any more has repeated. Please do not cease to write to me. You give me stimulus in a life. I very much missed. Thank for your picture. It is a fine picture. You such strong and handsome man. Forgive, that I such immodest. I very much like this picture. It is wonderful, when a man combines force and charm. It happens so seldom. Once again forgive me for my frank words. But I always talk what I think. I think there is nothing bad in it. I work in a bureau of registration of a marriage, you remember? Today there was an interesting case from one of young pairs. It is young nice pair. They have arrived to a bureau on five beautiful white automobiles together with friends and relatives. It was really the noisy company. When all were directed upwards on a ladder for an official part the bride has broken a heel on a shoe and has not fallen nearly. She was seized by the groom and by that has dropped him downwards on a stairs. First there was a silence among friends and relatives. Then all have started to laugh silently. People speak it is a good sign. Such cases happens seldom much. I understand them. Ceremony of wedding very responsible and many young pairs very much worries and happens many different incidents. Even happened as at movies - the young pair reconsider to marry directly ceremony of wedding. But basically all ceremonies pass easy and precisely. Therefore the majority of people are very superstitious. Especially it concerns to young generation. In Russia it is a lot of divorces and this parameter every year grows. I think that because of these adult mistakes suffer our children. Full families there is all less. To children it is especial at younger age is necessary caress and education of both parents. You agree with me? I work here two years already, but my work seems to me same interesting as in the beginning. In our bureau an atmosphere always celebratory and consequently my mood always good also. The woman who is responsible for the book of registration of a marriage works 52 years already in bureau, to her of 78 years. Her name is the Aunt Vera. She very clever and the fine interlocutor, but she till now one. Many people who knows her are perplexed. The aunt Vera has worked many years in a bureau of registration of a marriage, but itself is single till now. It really is very strange, but in Russia many women remain lonely till an old age. Ted in the USA many lonely people also? I should finish the letter. With the best regards. Your Anna.

P.S: I would like to congratulate you on last Day Valentine. Also I wish you love and happiness. I hope when be to become your Valentine.

Letter 6

Hi my Ted.
I am very glad that you have written to me. Your letters are necessary for me every day more and more. These make me happy. Today I was late for work. In the morning to me has come the neighbour - the old grandmother when I only have woken up. She very good woman and we frequently address to each other on different trifles. She lives one. Her husband has died five years ago and at present to her to help there is nobody. But she is not lonely. She has son and the daughter. But they very seldom come to her. To the senior son 39 years and daughters 34 years. At them already for a long time the families and they have moved to live to city. Certainly they too can be understood. Children need good education which it is possible to receive only in city. I certainly do not blame them. But to overlook about old mother it is impossible. You agree with me? Today she has come to me with a small problem. At her the lock on an entrance door has been spoiled and she could not close it. I have gone to look her door. I have tried to make the lock independently, but could make nothing. The mechanic from me has failed (smile). It was necessary to call the expert. Mariia Sergeevna (so call the neighbour) was afflicted certainly but that can make two women when the expert is required. I have a little calmed her, she the sick and to her is impossible to be afflicted. Her should to lay in hospital but she has not agreed and now I make to her injections every day. I have promised to her to call the expert. On my work the man which looks an economic part in our bureau. He drinks alcohol much, but has 'able fingers' (so in Russia speak about masters who very well know and perform the work). I want to ask him to help the neighbour with her door. Today I did not see him still but as I shall see I shall necessarily tell to him. The help is necessary for old people. Especially our state is very bad thinks about old men. Their pension very small also is not present any social protection. The medicine- paid and all money they to spend for medicines. Certainly it is not fair, but economy of Russia in bad condition. Certainly I am not interested in a politics but the question about social protection always interested me. I heard in the USA social protection of the population on top-level, whether not so? Forgive me, but I should finish. I have no time more. I shall write to you later.
Your Anna.

Letter 7

Hi my Ted!!!
How you? How do you feel? I hope well. Now I have a little free time on work and I write to you the letter. I hope you like to read my letters? (Smile). I think yes. Because your letters are necessary for me also. You have written such big letter (smile). But all the same I am very glad. Why you write nothing about yourself? You do not like to tell about yourselves? I hope you will tell more about yourself like me, OK? Last night to me came the neighbour again. I promised her to call the master. I was very glad, when I have met the master on work. I asked him to help the old neighbour and he has not refused. He sacrifice working hours and has gone to my neighbour to make a door. I have told to him where it is necessary to go. After two hours he has returned for work and has told to me that he has repaired a door. I have thanked him for his kindness. He has told also - neighbour offered him a bottle of vodka for his work and the help but he has refused a bottle. It was even more pleasant for hearing for me. In Russia many people which offer vodka as a payment for the help, and our master likes to drink of alcohol but did not take from the old grandmother a bottle. Sometimes I am surprised about kindness of Russian soul. Russian are ready to help unselfish to other people and to not demand instead of anything. It very much high quality. I think my neighbour have remained is pleased door. She will necessarily thank me also when I shall come to her to make injections. Most likely I shall not refuse her tea with pies, which she a bake itself if she will offer it. I love her pies. These remind me my mum. My mum to bake pies frequently and as well my mum has learned me to this but if to speak fairly, I a bake pies in the days off and on holidays only. Girlfriends speak that my pies are tasty also. The American women to bake pies? Unfortunately I should finish the letter. Today I wanted to come home earlier. It is necessary for me to make some homework and to go to neighbour. I shall write to you later necessarily. With the best regards. Your Anna.

Letter 8

Hi my Ted!!!
I have some free time on my job and I write to you with pleasure. I hope you waited my letter and you wish to receive my letters always (smile). Yesterday to me at last have repaired a roof. I caused masters from a municipal services. I have not cheaply paid for it but now I shall be quiet. And me any weather conditions will not be terrible (smile). I do not remember spoke to you whether or not about my former boyfriend. I have got acquainted with him when to me were 22 years. Certainly till 22years I met with guys also, but with Sasha (so his name) I was closer than with the others. I thought that I love him. He liked to drink vodka frequently and roughly manhandle with me. In Russia such cases are very often also I thought that it should be and not differently. I suffered insults and humiliations with him for a long time when he was drunk. Elena and other my girlfriends frequently spoke me that I threw him and have found the good guy to myself, but I really trusted that he loves me. He frequently spoke me words of love when was sorry about me and I forgave him. I do not know as but I could dare to leave from him nevertheless. Now I do not regret about it. Really we with Sasha could not be named relationship normal. I cannot introduce myself Sasha as my husband and the father of my child. I would not like to give birth from such person as he. Certainly I do not want to tell that the Russian men bad everything, but basically it so. In Russia many men to drink vodka much and it ruins them. They become rough and badly address to women. Probably therefore I began to search for the destiny in the Internet and have written to you. Now I am glad to this and I hope for the happy future. Ted what do you think of it? I should finish the letter and I hope you write to me soon. With the best regards
Your Anna.

Letter 9

Hi, Ted!
How you? How your mood? I hope at you everything is all right. Today it was especially pleasant for me to read your mail and also to write to you. Now you will understand why. Today I have fine mood. My chief has called me for discussion of working questions in the morning when I have come for work. After discussion of working themes he has told to me that one of our employees soon leaves a vacation for work and I can take a vacation. He has added also if I shall not take a vacation now I I shall already not have a vacation this year. I did not expect such news and at once have thought of you. I always hastened for work faster to look your mail and to write to you letters. Every working day was for me as a holiday for this reason. Thus, if I shall take a vacation I shall not have access to a working computer. I have been afflicted from these ideas. I have told to the chief I do not want to take a vacation for me. The chief has been surprised very much and has asked the reason of my refusal. I have explained to him all and have told about you and your letters. I have told also I shall not have an opportunity to write to you Ted. He has been surprised a little and has told that I can use the vacation as I want and to meet you. I silly also could not think of it itself. It is really big chance for us and our meeting. Why I have not thought of it at once? Certainly I have agreed with he chief and have been very much pleased with an idea on our future meetings with you. He has told that I can take the vacation (24 days) in March when another will come the employee for work from a vacation. I hope you are glad to this also. But there is other problem nevertheless. I have the passport for travel abroad but I have no the American visa. For reception of the visa in the USA time and if I to gather to you to me is necessary shall be necessary to prepare for the visa already. I have decided to not postpone it and have decided to address to agency of travel. I believe and I hope that I have not angered and have not offended you. I believe and I hope that you want o meet me. It can be outlined in advance by destiny. I sincerely hope that my letter has brought pleasure to you. And I sincerely hope that you want to meet me to spend some time together. And I sincerely hope that you would be happy to meet me. Your Anna.


Letter 10

Hi my Ted!
How your mood? Any your mood today I want to try to make even better. Today I have addressed visas agency. I wondered how much it will cost for me to make American visa. They told me that consideration of the application on reception of the visa costs 80 dollars. This sum does not come back even in that case if my application will not be approved. And for getting a visa is necessary to go to Moscow where there is an American consulate. They have told that I will must visit set of various departments, state and medical institutions both in Lipetsk, and in Moscow.It is necessary to wait for a long time the queue. It is a usual way of getting a visa and procedure of reception can be delayed for some weeks or even months. Besides if my application will not be approved, it will turn out that I squander money all for nothing. I said I can't wait so long. To me have told that is possible to avoid set of problems and to make all in faster terms if to use full package of service. Full package of service includes additional payments for a category of the visa, consular services, preparation for Interview with commission, interview. The full package of service costs 335 dollars, but the visas agency remove all problems and thus increases the chance of getting a visa without excessive delays. I asked how long time it will take to get a visa If to use a full package of service. They have answered that it will take about one week. Maybe 2 weeks if there will be some troubles. I have told that this variant satisfies me and I agree. I have asked, whether there will be troubles with visa, because there were the terrible terrorist actions in USA and the conflict with Iraq. I was answered that they will request information about me in the police. And if in the police they will be answered that I the law-abiding citizen, I will get the visa. I have never outraged the law. And I have never done anything unlawful. I will have preparation for interview. It will help me to receive the visa. And I eally have registered the visa application with great belief and with great hope that you will be glad to meet me, with belief and with hope that you want to meet me. I really want to give you a gift - our meeting. I understand that our relations are not long yet. I know that you did not expect that I will tell all this. But it is possible to wait eternally. But in fact nobody knows that waits for us tomorrow. Maybe such opportunity will not be presented any more. I have opened to you my heart and soul. I speak what I feel. I am not confused by my feelings. I speak straight and openly. The loneliness has made me courageous. You can think that I hurry events. But I have found new feeling which never had. I am happy right now. I seem I has found what searched for long time. In Russia speak: 'under a lying stone the water doesn't flow '. It mean that it is necessary to do a step onward to achieve something. I should use this opportunity. In my heart never was such confidence and feeling. And I am afraid to lose it. Much tenderness from Anna!!!

Hi my Ted!
What are your dreams and desires Anna?
You have set to me many questions. I shall try to explain to you. Understand me correctly but I do not aspire to remain in your country. You very much like me. You have come in my life and I very much would like to meet you. I also would not like to hinder to your son. You speak about temptations in your country. But I want to tell that I shall come to you. And for me mean much. I think that we shall solve it at a meeting. To me is much to you to tell. My feelings to you grow every day. I am very happy that I have received time to write to you. I should inform you that I have deep feelings to you mine Ted. It is valid so. Today at night I could not fall asleep for a long time. I thought of you, about our future meeting. As it will be wonderful. By the way, I do not know exact date of my vacation but when I shall know it I shall inform to you at once. I have good news for you my Ted. today I went to agency of travel and to me inform that they have submitted my documents for the visa already and it will be necessary for me to hand over various analyses and to wait for the special invitation for interview which is necessary for reception of the visa. I am sure that I shall receive the visa and I shall arrive to you necessarily. I believe in the God and I think that He will help me and our meeting. In agency to me have told also that I should bring to him the characteristic from my work. The chief promised to write me it. By the way, I today saw dream. I saw the sky, and in the sky a bird. It was the big beautiful bird of blue color. When I have woken up I have thought that it is dream about me as I hasten to you. You trust in dreams? I always dreamed to be near to the favourite person. I hope that I am not mistaken also I have found such person to myself. (Smile) When beside the favourite person this big happiness. In Russia speak 'with favourite person it is possible to find paradise in a tent'. It is valid so. Now I understand this saying. To me is necessary Ted beside. I always dreamed to look after the favourite person, to be near to him every day and every night. Probably my dreams will come true sometime... I do not want to think of it. Forgive me, but I have no time more. I shall write to you next time. Remember I always think of you and only about you my Ted. With the best regards your Anna.

P.S. 1000 kisses.

Letter 12

Hi my Ted!
How you today? I hope you have fine mood. Unfortunately I have no good mood today. Thanks for new picture. I already spoke, that you a hands o e man. Your new picture confirms my words. You really very charming and attractive a man and to look at you is very pleasant. Thanks for a fine poem. If for these verses write beautiful music, these verses will turn in a fine magic song. Nobody devoted to me of poem. You a first. Please write to me a poem again. I will be happy.>What if when we meet, we REALLY get along together, would you stay if I asked you to? Your offer is very flattering for me, and I feel like a most especial woman. But how I can answer right now? Though all is possible. Give we it we shall discuss at a meeting. Today the automobile has flown near me in the morning when I hastened for work. This automobile had the big speed and has not had time to brake, when on road the dog has run. The rain in the morning was and road became wet. Probably therefore the automobile has twirled also it has brought down a poor dog. The dog has no thad time even to begin to whimper and has died at once. I have been very much afflicted with it and have burst into tears even when stood and looked at a poor dog. Drivers in Russia very much frequently go with the big speed on roads and I sometimes even am afraid to cross roads. It happens even drunk drivers behind a rudder. And if on road instead of a dog have run out the person or the child? It would be awful . Really a life it is very short and never you find out for what reason a life can break. I believe in destiny and I think that to me the destiny has prepared not such terrible death nevertheless. Forgive me for sad ideas, it is probable you do not want to read about sad things. But I sometimes reflect on the further life. Suddenly my life will be torn off by any drunk driver? In Russia many such cases. Certainly I not so strongly am afraid of death, I am afraid that I shall not leave anything after me. And anybody is possible will not notice loss of me except for my friends. It is really terrible also I do not want to die in loneliness. I want to live with the loved man in care, love and caress and never to think of such things. Probably I have really bothered you with the sad ideas, but it was necessary for me to be uttered to you. I hope you will understand me. There are such moments in a life when it is necessary to state the ideas to the close person. For me such person YOU Ted. You speak I is beautiful. I recollect sometimes the school days. Then I was not such beautiful as now. I carried staple on a teeth and was ugly. I did not like to look in mirror at myself and all children named me 'sabreteeth' at school. Probably you are dared now, but I felt unfortunate myself at that time. Mum of me calmed and spoke that I shall grow the beautiful girl and I be happy. My mum was the most close person for me always. You recollect the school days? What you were a boy? You were happy at this time? Forgive me. I should finish the letter. With the best regards and kisses Your Anna.

Letter 13

Hi my Ted!
I wanted to write to you much. It is a pity, but I have no opportunity to write very long letters. But I am glad to acquaintance to you and we write each other. Today I slept at night a little very much. Because the husband at one woman from our village has come drunk at home. He has banish from home the wife and children. They such small, boys of 11 and 9 years. He drunk not first time. He frequently beat the wife, but to she suffer him because if she there will be one cannot bring up children and have money enough. Same has the small salary and it will not suffice for feeding and clothing of children. For a long time, when I have found out about a problem of this woman I have told that she always came to me home and never there was one with children in the street when her husband expels. I am always glad to shelter them at any time. Today also. Approximately at 2:00 A.M. she was knocked on my window. She cried. I have passed her with children in my house and calmed for a long time. Then we drank tea and talked. Children slept already. She apologized, but I have told that there is no necessity for apologies and I understand her trouble. In the morning she left home. Her husband slept and has not recollected that was at night. People in our village abuse him frequently for it, but it without result. He drinks vodka nevertheless. It is a pity to me of his children very much. They come to me sometimes and help me in a garden even, but I do not allow them a tough job. They watering only and frequently play with water then. But I do not swear, on the contrary I also play with them. I spoke you about a monastery. I and my friends frequently visit a shelter for children and I help them. We bring toys we play with them and we teach them. Them there is more 40. government of Russia finds money to contain prison for criminals but does not find money for the contents of such children. It is insulting very much. Recently I and Elena painted for children a playground in a monastery. Many children tried to help us. It was amusing very much. Children are pleased to our arrival because we frequently play with them. But it is hurt to me to look at children. They have no parents. I never would throw the child. Many of these children have parents, but their parents are deprived the rights because they alcoholics or criminals. They require parental caress. Once one girl has named me the mum during game. I did not know what to tell to her on it. How to her to explain? It is a pity to me this girl. I understand her. Then I could not sleep as well thought of her. To her of 5 years only. But I hope that in her life all will be good. Ted I am very much tired today, but I am happy that could to write to you. Now I shall stop and I shall go home. I should go to bed earlier. By the way, Elena has told to you 'Hi'. With the best regards
Your Anna.

Hi my Ted!
Today I have fine mood and I wish you good mood also. You cannot imagine as far as you are delightful! You a most beautiful man on a planet! For me you a best. I adore you and I adore looking at you. Your smile the most dear, your eyes the loveliest to my heart! Maybe you can teach me some russian when you are here? Likely you learn him during my vacation. Now I every day think of you and about our meeting. I try to imagine it and always I present it differently. do not know as there will be our meeting but I will be sure that it perfectly. You represented our meeting Ted? Now we are far apart but our hearts together. You believe in love on distance Ted? Earlier I thought that it not probably but when I have to get acquainted with you I think differently. I think - the main thing in the person it his soul and heart and it is not important as far he to be. You Ted have fine soul and heart and it have subdued me. Now I sit and I look in a window when I write to you. Behind a window a sundown. It is a fine sundown, but it is one more evening without dialogue with you. I shall sit in the house one and to think of you mine Ted. But I see off the sun without a regret because it will shine now to you. I hope that the sun will give you safe day and happy mood. Sun will remind you of me. I dream sometime to observe a sundown together with you Ted. I think it would be romantic very much. You romantic, whether not so? I should finish the letter and go home. Elena has told 'Hi' to you Ted. With the best regards.
Your Anna.

Letter 15

Hi my dear Ted!
Today fine day. But only for one reason - I have received your letter. And all the rest become unimportant for me. Today I really have no opportunity to write much. Please forgive me. But I have enough time to tell to you that I thought of you and waited when the opportunity to write to you will appear. But I have time to tell the main thing. I do not know why, but today I have woken up earlier than usually. I could not fall asleep again. In the street already was sunlight. I sat near a window and began to look at street. Unexpectedly the small birdie sat down on a window and began to sing. She so beautifully sang. She looked at me and sang. The birdie at all was not afraid of me. I looked at this birdie and thought that you now somewhere there, far. I have thought that maybe you sleep and see me in your dream. And I have thought, if I was a birdie, I too would sit down to you on a window and began to sing my song. I have told to a birdie: ' Fly off, my small birdie, and sing this song to my far but close friend Ted. Tell him that I think of him'. And in this moment the the birdie flinch and fly off , as though she has heard my words. And I have thought, maybe this birdie really will fly to you and will sing her beautiful song. So if you Ted will see near to yourself a small birdie which beautifully sings, know that I have sent this song to you. Today at us last working day. Tomorrow we shall not work. You know that tomorrow the international women's day? All men give gifts to the girls. I would like to congratulate all your close and familiar women. To wish them love of caress and happiness. Congratulate them from me. To us director today has brought a lot of entertainment. Today we shall mark this holiday. I tomorrow shall go in Lipetsk . Also I can not write to you the letter. DO NOT LOSE ME. Thanks for all your warm words about me. Your words are very pleasant for me. And you should not be afraid that I will stop to write to you. get pleasure learning you, and I enjoy our dialogue. >What do you think you would like to do while visiting here in America? America is such big and interesting country. I never thought,-what I would like to see in America. I think it would be most delightfully to travel there where I will be waited by a man, dear to my heart. Forgive, but I should go. I want to send you my kiss.
Your Anna.

Letter 16

Hi my Ted!
How are you today? I hope at you all wonderfully. In the beginning of the letter I want to tell to you 'Hi' from Elena. She asked me to make it at once. She has told that I can forget it and Elena will worry. Be not dared only. She really speaks to you 'Hi' but sometimes I overlook to write it and she takes offence at me. You cannot imagine what your poems make with my heart! Your words are a medicine for my soul. Your words are a warm bed. Your words are the sun. Your words are a warm fireplace. Your words are a drink of vivifying water in desert. Your words are a light in night. Your words are a bridge through a precipice. Today is a very important day. I worry very much. Today I got a invitation on the conversation with the commission which deals with giving visas. It is the most important in the process of getting visa. The commission will make a final decision after the conversation - to give me visa or not. The conversation is very difficult but I am prepared. This is a difficult test which I have to pass. But I am ready. I want to meet you very much and my desire will help me. Where there is a will there is a way. Children from orphanages where I help already for several years, together with tutors have written letters for the commission to support of me, the petition and the characteristic. It will help me when the commission will make a decision. I am sure that all will be OK. I hope you will pray for me? (Smile) Also I have told to the chief about my possible reception of the visa. I have told that I need in a vacation especially when I receive my visa. I want to arrive to my Ted. The chief has understood me and has told that I did not worry. I shall have a vacation, but have not told exact date nevertheless. But you should not worries also. I shall arrive to you in any case. I am tuned on our meeting. Today on work my colleagues began to ask me whom I write. I never spoke to them about you. Only be not jealous to me, colleagues - women with which I work together. They knew that I write to someone only. But they saw changes in me. They speak I has changed in the best party lately. I have good mood always, I smile. I began to come for work the first and to leave - last. And each free minute I sit opposite to a computer. I always hid my feelings to you from them, but today I have told them the reason. I have told them about you my Ted, about our feelings and about our future meeting. They were glad for me and for us. Also joked over me. They have told that I always made happy other people on work when I registered marriages, but never had the happiness myself. Now I have happiness - YOU Ted. Yes, you my happiness and my future, I hope. Probably I am naive a little but I want to trust in the our happy future only. I hope you also. I have ocean of feelings to you. My ocean of feelings is more, much more than Atlantic ocean which shares us. But I believe - distance between us not an obstacle and we shall be together. I am really happy, but my happiness will be full when we shall be together. You feel also? I can eternally write to you words of love, but, to a regret, I have no so a lot of time for it. I should finish, but you remember - I ALWAYS THINK OF YOU MY Ted. I shall wait the letter from you with your warm words for me. (Smile) With the best regards Your Anna.

PS. I need the name of the nearest airport where you can meet me.
You will tell to me it?

Letter 17

Hi my Ted!
I write to you the letter and I smile. I am so glad. All time I think of you and I can not concentrate my attention to something else. I never thought that the commission will ask such unusual questions. They asked about my sexual life, they asked about children, about work, about patriotism, about my attitude to America, about my conversance and awareness of events which happened in the world and in America, about my religion and belief. I have told about all my life in detail. I spoke about everything fairly how it is really. To me have told that my answers are unexpected and as a rule applicants do not answer such questions so directly and openly. They have not got used to hear such answers, but they said that to hear sincere and truthful answers is much more pleasant than words which come not from heart and reason. Children from the orphanages also have made the big impression and rendered the big influence on the commission. To me have told that I the first lady who have such support from children - orphans. Now I should wait the decision. Now I agree with expression: 'Expectation of death is worse than the death ' I cannot concentrate on anything. My heart so worry, I can't work. They have told that the decision will be accepted tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. I so worry. I so want that this small dream was come true. I simply want to see my lovely friend. I think the God will help me. I simply want to meet you. I already see us together and I sink in dreams. I want to construct with you the ship to float under sails in boundless ocean. I want to meet with you a dawn and to see off a sundown. We will float on our ship and our love will illuminate our way. We will look at night at stars, we will be pleased in the afternoon to the sun. If there will be a storm, our love will protect us. If there will be a calm, our love will be a wind. Our love will be a beacon for us. We will be floating at ocean of love and oblivion and nothing can separate us. We will name our ship - Dream. It will be the small ship, but very strong. Because we will make our ship from belief, hope and love. It is impossible to wait, when your dream will fall to you from the sky. It is necessary to go to the dream. It is necessary to clear and build the road itself. If in heart there is a belief and dream, if in heart there is a love and hope, it is necessary to achieve the dream by all means. I always go to the dream. I do not sit on a place. In my life there were very few light moments. On this I try to make everything that my dreams have come true. I understand that now it's only dreams. But these dreams brighten my life. I hope that yours also. I should finish my letter. I shall wait yours letter with impatience and with warm words for me. With the best regards and with millions kisses Your Anna.

Letter 18

Hi, my Ted.
There is a finest news for me and for you - I got the visa!!! I am so happy!!!! I will get vacation March, 19, 2005.I went to the company which reserves airway tickets. I asked them how I can reach Dallas (DFW) and how much it costs. They answered me that the ticket costs $ 1013 USD. I asked them to find cheaper tickets, because this price is expensive for me. They answered that they had a cheaper ticket and the beginning of the flight 24- Mar, 2005.It costs $ 924 USD. I asked them to reserve a ticket. But they refused, because they have a lot of clients at this time and they can't reserve my ticket without advance payment. I spoke with them for a long time and asked to reserve the ticket for me without advance payment but they didn't agree. Then I wondered if it is possible to pay a part of the money now and the other part later. They didn't agree. I spoke with them for a long time and I managed to persuade them. They agreed but provided that if I will not pay the remaining sum, I will lose already nested money. We agreed that I would pay a part of the price today and the other part later. I paid $ 516 USD. But it was little for an initial payment. Then I went to the pawnshop and pawned my and Elena's gold jewelry for $ 115USD. It was my last money. The number of the flight on which I will get the ticket is Delta 31.The time of departure from Moscow is 1:10 pm. The time of arrival in Dallas (DFW) is 10:15 pm. I will change a plan in New York (JFK), number of the flight Delta 899. Aiso I will change a plan in Cincinnati (Cincinnati N. Ky.), number of the flight Delta 1147. After this I will fly to Dallas(DFW), to you. It is very difficult for me to tell you about it. But I have done everything what I could. I paid visa. I paid a part of the ticket. But this money is not enough. I didn't want to burden you. I wanted to reach you with my own money but unfortunately I failed. And now I feel so guilty. I thought that nothing can prevent our meeting. But I have to pay the remaining part. It is only $ 293 USD. I have to pay this money before March, 15, 2005 evening. Otherwise I will lose my money and our jewelry will be sold out simply in vain. Now I have extremely unpleasant feeling because I could not fulfill my promise to make allby myself, independently. I remember that I promised it and I always do all what in my forces to fulfill my promise. I am very ashamed to address to you. But I couldn't get money which I expected on my work. It so-called vacation money. It would solve my problems and I really was sure that I can get it. When we get a vacation, we get vacation money besides salary. But unfortunately this money pays to us after ending of a vacation and sometimes even in some months. I have addressed with request to get this money now because I very much need in it. But unfortunately my inquiry has been rejected. They have told that they can give out vacation money before terms only in case of serious illness or death of close relatives. Probably I simply must tell to you that I can't meet with you in this vacation because at present I cannot provide completely my travel. I understand that I should not asked you. But at the same time I can't simply say that I will not arrive to you. I too much have made and have passed to achieve our meeting. If I have simply refused our meeting, all my diligence would be spent in vain. I have made so much to meet you, and I can't now just say that I cannot arrive to you. I address to you and I think in it there is nothing shameful. I understand that probably you are not interested in me too strongly and you have no very strong feelings towards me. And I understand that it is a big money. I know it and for me twice difficult to address to you. But also comprehension of my position convinces me, that any person could get in such situation. And only one thing that I should make now - I must say that I can't meet with you. But I can't say so, because I want to meet you and therefore I say sincerely that I need your help. I understand that I put you in inconvenient position. But I am simple person, I am the simple woman. I am ashamed to ask the help but in the life there are various situations. I am not the wizard. Any person could get in a similar situation. Of course you are not obliged to help me. It is bad but not fatal. I will lose my money. It is bad too but not fatal too. And these $ 335 that I have given for the visa, and these $ 631 that I have given for the ticket is the huge money for me. But I don't regret that I have made and have given all what I had for our meeting. Actually it simply money and our jewelry it simply metal. Sense of the life not in money and not in this metal. That's why I was the first who took the first step. I do not want this all to be wasted. If you really want to meet me, If you can help me to make our meeting, please, send money to the help before March, 15, 2005 evening. I don't want you to doubt my honesty and that's why I send you the view of my visa. If you can help me I send you my coordinates. Elena said that you can help me with the help of some system. I have addressed in the nearest bank. I have been told that they have system of ''Western Union''. They have told that it is very convenient office for me. There is other remittance system, but at present unfortunately it works not always because at present there is made some renovation and upgrade of the equipment and signalizing system. But they have told that system - ''Western Union'' works always and reliably. I give you necessary elements for sending money with the help of ''Western Union''.

Russian Federation
for Vshivkova Anna.

In bank I have been told that to get the money, I must tell to employee of bank your full name, full address, exact sum which I should receive and some confidential numbers (Reference Number). This number will give to you in your bank if you will send your help. Only at presence of all this information I can get your help. Please forgive me all my words. I say so because I am in despair and confusion. Now, when only one step is separated us, I am afraid. I am afraid that you will not help, and all my diligence will have no use. I need you and I want to be with you and the word of honor, your help is necessary for me. I have not calculated my forces. I understand that it is a very big money for you. I did not want to ask you. I thought that I can make all myself. The loneliness has made me strong. I have got used to live without help, and to rely only on myself. I ask somebody for help very seldom, but now I ask you to help me. And of course I will give back all your money at the earliest opportunity. Probably I have offended you. But I need you. I do not know if my letter have brought to you a pleasure or only frustration, but I have written to you honestly and sincerely. I am waiting for your reply. Kiss you. Your Anna.

She informed me that she was looking for a 'kind and gentle man', that my profile attracted her attention and that if I was interested in contacting her to reply directly to her e-mail address arina@postdom.com. I did just that and requested a photo of her. 'Arina' responded to my request on 2/3/05, directing her e-mails to my yahoo address and sent me pictures of herself, along with the long e-mail you will find below. I exposed the scam on 3/18/05 when I confronted 'Arina' about some facts and information she had shared with me that did not make any sense. She admitted to the scam when I told her that I would expose her name and address on your Black List and report her to the Department of State. I am including her final e-mail (along with the first one she sent and the 'money request' one) in which she is confessing to what she did, pleading with me to understand why she had done it.This is a successful scam prevention story thanks to your web site, which alerted me of such a possibility. I did not send her any money. The money was requested to be sent via Western Union to the following bank address: Bin Bank, 8 MARTA 3/1, Stavropol, Russia 355002, for Arina Gourkina. The amount requested was $247.00. A couple of interesting facts to point out and be aware of: 'Arina' actually called me on the phone one day (she had previously requested my phone number and I gave it to her) to say hello and to tell me how excited she was to meet me; she also sent a picture of herself in front of a computer that had my picture in it; and last, she sent a picture of a forged 'visa' that was supposedly issued by what she called the 'anti-emigration department' in Russia, with whom she had an interview to obtain it. I am including that picture for your inspection. Also, shortly after the initial contact she had with me through Yahoo Personals, her profile was deleted from that web site. Again, all further correspondence was done via my yahoo address.

Initial letter dated 2/3/05:
'Hi Oscar! I was so glad to receive your letter! Thank you. You have answered and it means that your heart is open for new friends. I think it's Great, because the friendship brighten life of people. The new events, new people, any changes, new ideas and thoughts are refresh soul. That is why I was so glad to see that you again have written to me. Probably you have already noticed that I'm not able to keep my emotions inside of me. Of course I am talking about joy, about good mood, about all good and positive things that can be in my soul. I always try to share my joy with other people, I try to give my smile and good mood to all people. I try to never show to people that I am grieved or I have any problems in a life. Therefore all people, with whom I work and communicate are sure that everything in my life is perfectly, that I am a happy woman, that I have no any disappointments, that all my dreams always come true and success always accompanies me. But unfortunately it is not so, because when the person is lonely, nothing can cure sadness. And if you ever felt the same, of course you understand what I am speaking about. Oscar, I must tell that I try to write in English as good as possibly (within my knowledges). But I don't know how you perceive my English. I hope you understand all what I write. I study English already for more than 18 years, but taking into account that I study this language in the Russian-speaking country, I understand that my English is not quite correct. Therefore I ask you to not punish me for my mistakes (Smile). Earlier I dreamed to be the linguist or the translator. Well, I've become the dental specialist, but I always was studing your language with the big pleasure. And I am happy that I have chosen the English language for studying, because the knowledge of English has allowed me to estimate the full luxury and beauty of wonderful poetry of English-speaking musicians. I very much like the western music. Pink Floyd is a Greatest band. And each of soloists of this band is unique. I like Dire Straits, Sting, Kylie Minogue, George Michael and many other delightful musicians. In Russia as well there are many good musicians, but probably you don't know about it (smile). Well, I think that there are many others things about myself that I must tell. Thank you for your picture. It is a fine picture. You are a strong and handsome man. I very much like this picture. It is wonderful, when a man combines force and charm. It happens so seldom. Forgive me for my frank words. But I always speak what I think. I think there is nothing bad in it. You have pleasant appearance and it is wonderful. In general, if to speak about my nature, I must tell that I'm the versatile person. I have various interests. I like sports, I like reading, I like to listen to music, to watch movie. I like Sixth Sense, Rainman, Stepmother, A Perfect World, Scent of a Woman, Ladder 49. Of course, I can't list all movies I like - too many good films have been made in your country. I like to cook, I knit warm clothes. Actually, here in any settlement almost each woman can knit. And I'm not exception. I like camping, swimming. I have no children and I was never married, though of course I was in relationship and even thought that it will lead me to the happy future. But now I haven't anything except of bad and painful memoirs. But I live with a smile on my face and with hope in my heart. I think I am optimist. And maybe my optimism has helped me to dare to write you. I do not need many things to be happy. All I need is a man, friend, soul-mate. My life has led me to the fact that now I seeks it in such a way. And I do not think it is bad. Oscar, what are the basic features of your character? I never tried to describe to somebody my character in the letter. And I have no idea how to do it. But if there is anything you want to know, I will tell you with pleasure of course. I really can tell that I have the kind heart, and I am the good listener. I'm an absolutely kind person though at the same time I am a proud woman; I always appreciated sincerity, honesty and frankness; I am a loyal person and I always have respect to people. I am able to forgive and I do not recognize anger. All this are the obvious features of my character,- the features, which I self can see in myself. Oscar, what you are looking for in a woman? How often you tried to find a friend or soul-mate via Internet? Probably you have many female friends in the Internet. What else to tell about myself as I have a little time? I use computer at the clinic. I work from Monday till Friday. But sometimes I work Saturday and Sunday. Therefore, maybe I will be able to write letters in weekends, if you want (smile). This computer is located in cabinet of medical analyses. We get the access to the Internet only few times in day, for sending analyses and receiving result. Well, now this computer will be used for my dialogue with Oscar! (smile). I wanted as well to ask you about your family, Oscar. I miss my family too much. I hope to receive your letter soon. I send you two my pictures. I hope you will like them. Sincerely and with the best regards. Arina.'

Letter dated 3/17/05 with money request:
'Hi, my Oscar. I even do not know what to tell first. I simply hope that you will be happy! The most i mportant, finest news - I did it! I got the visa! I am very happy!!!! I as well have found out that I will get vacation April, 1, 2005. I have been to the company that reserves airway tickets. I asked them how I can reach Miami (MIA) and how much it costs. They have offered to me the ticket that costs $1119.80 USD. I asked them to find cheapest ticket, because this price is expensive for me. They have answered that they have a cheaper ticket and the beginning of the flight April, 5, 2005. It costs $834 USD. It was the best variant for me. I asked them to reserve a ticket. But they refused, because they can't reserve the ticket without advance payment. I must pay full cost. I have asked if I can pay a part of money now, and the other part later. They have told that it is possible, but I will be limited by term. And if I will not pay the full cost of the ticket within of this term, I will lose already nested money. I have agreed because it is the only chance for me, because I must give to anti-emigration committee a data about my payment. By this moment I had only the concrete sum of money which I had after all my expenses. I paid $ 480 USD. But it was not enough for them. In a panic, all what Natalia and I could do - we pawned our gold earrings and rings and I got $ 107 USD. That is all I could do. The number of the flight on which I will get the ticket is 2545 Air France The time of departure from Moscow is 7:15 am. The time of arrival in Miami is 2:20 pm. I will change a plan in Paris (CDG), number of the flight 8348 Delta Airlines. After this I will fly to Miami, to you. I know that probably I simply must tell that I can't come to you because I haven't the remaining sum. I know that I promised to do all by self, and I was sure that I can. I did not want to ask you. But after I did everything I did, I cannot simply tell that I will not come to you. I have passed through so many difficulties, and I have overcome the most difficult. But all the same I have disgusting feeling that I could not fulfill the promise. I am always ready to do all what is possible,- to fulfill my promises, but at the same time I understand that any person could get in such a situation. To get the visa I have spent much more money than I expected. But people were ready to help me only if I will pay them. I paid more than 300 dollars to get all documents, I paid in municipal committee, in the ministry. Even officers in army garrison have compelled me to pay for their help. I did not expect all this, but up to the last moment I was sure that I still can make everything. I expected that I can get a vacation payment. We get a vacation payment after ending of a vacation. I asked to give me this money now because I need this money urgently. But, at the last moment I have got the answer that I can get this money urgently only in case of serious illness or for example in case of death of the relative. I feel so guilty. I was sure that nothing can prevent our meeting. But I must pay remaining sum. It is $ 247 USD. And I must pay money before March 23, evening. Otherwise I will lose my nested money and our jewelry will be sold out simply in vain. I know that I should not ask you, and I am very ashamed to do it. I understand that probably you are not interested in me too strongly and you have no very strong feelings towards me. And I understand that it is a big money. I know it and for me twice difficult to address to you. But also comprehension of my position convinces me, that any person could get in similar situation. I want to meet you and I say sincerely that I need your help. I understand that I put you in inconvenient position. But I am simple person, I am the simple woman. I am not the wizard. Any person could get in a similar situation. And maybe I really simply had to tell you that I can't meet with you because I could not provide my travel completely. But I cannot simply refuse our meeting because then all my diligence, forces, nerves, means will be spent in vain. I understand that for you it is too big sum to lend me. You are not obliged to help me. And 300 dollars which I have spent to get the visa, and 587 $ that I have given for the ticket are huge money for me. But I want you to know that I have given everything not for the sake of myself, but for the sake of us, for the sake of you and me. And I was happy all this time. If you want to meet me, to help me to make our meeting, please, send money to the help before March 23, evening. I want you to be confident in my sincerity, - that is why I send you the view of my visa. I want you to see the result of my efforts. If you can help me I will tell you what I have found out. Natalia said that you can help me with the help of remittance system. So I have addressed to the nearest bank. I have been told that they use the system ''Western Union''. They have told that it is very convenient office for me; and this system works always and reliably. I give you necessary elements for sending money with the help of ''Western Union'': Bin Bank 8 MARTA 3/1 Stavropol, Russia 355002 for Arina Gourkina. In bank I have been told, that to get the money, I must tell to employee of bank your full name, your full address, exact sum which I should receive and some confidential numbers - Money Transfer Control Number. You will get this number in your bank if you will send your help. Only with presence of all this information I can get your help. I do not know what answer I will get from you. I very much am afraid that you will not help me. But I want to tell, that I really need you, and I simply can't endure the thought that I did almost everything, but I will not meet you. I understand that it is big money. I have given all my forces, but together we are stronger. I really ask you to help me. I will give you back all your money at the earliest opportunity. I have written you honestly and sincerely. Are you with me? Your Arina.'

Letter dated 3/18/05, which 'Arina' wrote after I told her I knew about her scam and that I would take steps to expose it:
'Oscar. My child lies under the device for maintenance of ability to live. If you would see his eyes when he with tears in these eyes say to me that he loves me and wants to live to be with me, if you would hear how he say by shivering voice: mom, I will die? If you would see he, if you would see how he loves me and wants to live, if you would know how I love him, maybe you would understand me more though I know that my place in a hell. But if I will not find money he will die. And he knows it. I tried all means. I addressed to the government, I addressed to people. Without results. What must I do? I know that I should be damned. But people which have offered me such a 'work', have promised me big money. I know that it is dirty money, but I do not think of anything except of my boy. I did not think that I shall have feelings to you. But I have. But what can I do? I know that I do not deserve to live in this world, but my baby deserves. I tried all ways, but, our damned Russia, and our damned Russian government are at all does not pay attention to such small destinies. So judge me.' Oscar.



Ekaterina (Ussuriysk, Russia)

Hey folks, I am a 45-year-old unemployed single male from New York. On 3/16/2005, Ekaterina (katysha2005_05) sent a note to my Yahoo Personals! mailbox suggesting I email her at katyshenka@list.ru so it will be more convenient to write and send me pictures. The note she sent to my Yahoo! Mailbox was identical to the one Bob Hughes received from a person calling herself Marina Kushakova from (Ussuriysk, Russia). So someone (or more than one person) is still using this story to try to attract older male targets. As of this writing (March 20, 2005), I have received four letters from this person, one a night. It struck me as unusual that the person answered almost none of my questions. I figured 'she' (assuming it is an actual female) was just learning English and needed to find someone to help translate my letters and help her draft replies. I was a little skeptical about a pretty 29-year-old woman writing me and reminded her I am 45 but I figured maybe things were bad in Russia and she actually couldn't meet anyone there. Right I should have known better. Anyway, as of now, there has been no talk about money but I intend to stop writing this person. Since the first letter that I received was identical to a letter that was used to try to scam someone (as reported on this website), there is no doubt that the person currently calling herself Ekaterina will eventually try something similar to me. Oh well she seemed like a nice person. Bob

Hi! I am glad, that you were interested by me and have written to me e-mail. I shall be very glad if you will write to me also other letters. I for the first timehave acquaintance through the Internet. It was very difficult to me to place my profile in a service of acquaintances, because I am in Russia, the service of acquaintances does not accept the members from this country. I had to specify in a structure, that I am in USA. In this letter I shall inform you a little information myself and if the dialogue with me will be interesting to you, I shall tell about myself in more detail in the following letters. I am 26 years. I havework and I am engaged in sports. I the very romantic woman also try to do my life interesting. I dream to meet in my life of the good man, which can understand me and love. I send you a photo me and I ask, that you sent me some pictures from your life. As it will be interesting to me to learn about your life, family, work and entertainments. Write to me, I shall wait your letter. Sincerely and yours faithfully. Irina.


Feb 15,2005

Hello my Darrell! How you today? I am glad to receive yours e-mail. I think, that I more seriously now think of acquaintance through the Internet. Darrell, when you established the profile in a service of acquaintances, you thought of an opportunity to find the woman for the serious relations? Be you can did it to have a small fun? Inform me about it please. Inform me, why you have decided to get acquainted in the Internet, instead of in the street. I in the life had no good acquaintances in the street. I think, that if the man specially uses a service of acquaintances, it has serious intentions to find the special man for himself. To me told about many games on the Internet, but I hope, that you the serious man. Darrell, I would like, that you wrote to me the small story, how the usual man in your country lives. At our peoples different culture and life, and I think this story will help me better to understand you. I think, that on TV tell not always truth, and I never do opinion on the other people from the TV set. I hope, that will not tell some things about it tiresome for you. With what importance of family in your country and what opinion at you concerning it. Darrell, I know, that some women frivolously concern to family, that for them their career is more important. And some women marry and at once do divorce to take half of money from the husband. And are there many such women in your country?. It is very difficult to me to understand it. I think, that the creation of family is very important in life and it is impossible to play by feelings of other people and to have the large purse from it. I already informed to you, that I have a work, which takes away from me a lot of free time. My salary not so large, but suffices to me for life and I frequently am helped by my parents. I plan in the future to study to raise the level for work. Earlier I already studied on special occupations for reception of a trade. It was after I finished school. It was the quite good college, but I would like to finish university to have good education. Darrell, what you have opinion rather importance of education in life? Together to me please opinions. Dear now it is time to me to go home. I shall write to you tomorrow. I wait for your letters. Yours Irina.

Ekaterina (Slavyanka, Russia)

hi again its Aussie OI, it's quite a shame how they keep on trying to scam you when you already know it's a scam. Two scams in a row aussie blokes are not that dumb!! Well this one ain't that's for sure! The first one tells me that her father and mother died when she was you now this one tells me that her father died of a heart attack 2 years ago (Duh! ME NO STUPID ME NO DUMB ME NO HAVE MY FINGER UP MY OOOPS). Here is the letter of the second scammer that I beleive after reading on the same. (I know I will find my russian wife that will be true and honest with me unlike these ones which you can see straight through.)

Letters:

Hi my dear friend Aussie OI, I am very glad that you have answered my letter to you. I regret very much that could not answer you earlier. These days I was sick of a flu and spend time on a bed. Therefore do not think that I have forgot about you!!! I looked announcements and have casually seen your profile. I have decided to write to you and I was pleasantly surprised when you have answered me. I used the Internet for the first time to search for happiness. Therefore I did not know whether you write to me or not. So it has turned out that I have not found the man of the dream yet. Men in Russia drink a lot of alcohol. Many Russian men do not respect women, Count women silly. I do not love it. I heard that in your country men are very good and decent, it is not enough to drink alcohol to respect women. Probably all this forces me to search for the man in internet. I live in Russia in Slavyanka town, PRIMORSKIY REGION. It is very beautiful there, clean air you know. Well, probably you want to find out about me more. My growth 5,6, weight 105 lgs. Color of my hair dark brown, eyes green. I am 27 years. I was born i August,28 1977 in Sevastopol city on Ukraine. My mum the Ukrainian girl. father Russian. My father was the militarian and in 1985 my family have gone to serve to the Far East in Russia in a small city Slavyanka. There I live now.After Disintegration of the USSR we wanted to come back on Ukraine but then we have decided that we shall live better in Russia. The big tragedy has happened at us recently. Daddy has died in 2002 of a heart attack. It was irreplaceable loss for us.:-(( We have remained alone: my mum and me. Unfortunately all relatives live on Ukraine. I do not have brothers and sisters of mine. I am the only child in family. At school I studied very well. At school I wanted to be an economist. Therefore after school I have entered and finished The Economic state university. After university I have entered a postgraduate study. Now I work as the financial manager in affiliated company Lukoil. I do not know what to tell. I love east dances, classical music, prepare tasty meals, play the piano. Very often at leisure time I read History of Russia and Foreign countries. Yes by the way I write you from Internet cafe. So it has turned out that in our small city not everyone has a computer. Girlfriends have advised to search for the man in internet to me. I search for happiness. I want to have loving husband and children. I have never been married and I do not have children. Many men are afraid to tell the woman that they have got children. I love children very much and I would be a good stepmother. Children are not guilty that they do not have mother. I think that lonely father who has children is obliged to find the wife and mother for children. Children can not live without mum. Therefore I would be a good mum and a stepmother. I worry about your attitude to the women from Russia. It is far enough. Some problems probably can arise. I would like to find out whether you could become interested and fall in love with the Russian woman? Certainly not at once, gradually. Are you interested in correspondence with the Russian woman? What relations you expect from our acquaintance? I would like to find out you better. I hope that you will like my photo. Probably you are interested with my English. I know well colloquial English language. But to write the text in English I am at a loss. Therefore I use the computer program of the translator. I hope that this English is clear to you. Though certainly it is not ideal translation. I think it is good enough for the first time. Ok, I think that it is necessary to finish. I have written big enough letter. I wish you successful day and that everything would fine today. Please tell me about itself. What are you searching for and what are your dreams? What has forced you to search for the girl in internet? I shall wait your letter. Please answer my questions.
Ekaterina.

Once again I can not reveal my name as I rather just be called Aussie OI Thankyou for you attention.
