this is the guy who sent these pictures in to this site.....i was on match.com looking for someone local, when i recieved an email from this girl. at first i thought she lived in the u.k. but by her writing expected her to be foriegn. on the second email she then tells me she was from russia, looking to share letters, interests and exchange photos. like some sort of a penpal.... i didn,t see any harm in that, to be honest found it quite interesting.. but from the begining was wary, and as soon as i could smell a rat, thats it i,m off......... at first,, she was very polite. asking me questions about my life,,,and telling me all about hers... every day she sent me a photo,,and kept asking if i liked them.....and as you can see, who wouldn,t... i told her she was pretty, very attractive girl,, who wouldn,t. then after a couple of weeks,,,she came out saying she had grown feelings for me. i was still wary, but decided to give this benefit of the doubt, as she hadn,t asked anything from me.. the next stage was when she asked if we could meet up half way in a foriegn country somewhere.. this i declined, as i had only started a new job and couldn,t get the time of.. so she suggested if she could come to the u.k. to see me. to which i agreed. she then went on to tell me that she had money for travel, but did ask , if its no trouble to me, if she could stay at my home. i then started to think this just could be genuine,, so i agreed, it was the least i could do. then it started getting fishy.......her travel visa cost more than she thought.......it was difficult to get documents to the u.k because of new anti-terrorist laws. but said agency can help..but will cost more than she thought. thats then when she asked for money to help with the second payment of travell documents, which would of been 700 pound sterling. and gave me a address to send it to,, she also asked for it to be sent by moneygram. i decided to play cute with her,,,seeing that she is quite cute by her pictures... i suggested i will give her the money back when she arrives at the airport and meets me face to face........she came back insisting on it being sent to her.......but still i refused, and said i will keep to my arrangement. but in the meantime i was going through all the scam sites. looking at the pattern in which they work. and it all seemed similiar.. i kept all her emails, and started going through them,,, and a couple of times there was times when i asked her things.......but didn,t get straight answers. one of my last emails to her i said i won,t be sending money, but will give it her if she arrived in the u.k.......she wrote back thanking me, and looks forward to recieving it..... towards the end what email i sent,,,,,got a totally different reply ....as if she hadn,t read it....... i found this site, same name, same pattern....even the same dating site.. but a different girl and email address. so if this is the same person under a different disguise.......its only fair that i put these pictures and other information on to warn other guys.....what i mean is she is very convincing, but i was on to her from the begining, but gave her benefit of the doubt,,just incase she might be genuine....and at times i did think she might be........it was the money thing that did it for me........i was waiting for that all along........so i hope i have at least helped someone out there,,,,,,, heres the punchline,, since that i have had another email from another russian girl,, yeah on match.com....but declined her other,,,,,been there ,,read the book.. take care guys.

Not easy to classify the syrian comment.
@UK: Can you please post the headers? But do not forget to delete your own addy in it. You might get thrown with sand otherwise.

It says something about 'go and хуй stupid americans!'...I guess you can fill in the untranslatable word.
Hey Syria!...enta mejnun!...ana sa akturuk! Nik mok!

I have had no problems to translate the russian words. But a RUSSIAN comment from SYRIA against US in an ENGLISH thread??? Any suggestions where there could be a hidden sense, Stockholm? And what was your answer?
To UK: Good job! If she would have been real, she would not have anything to complain about. Even your posting is not offending someone.

haha...yes it does seem a bit strange, Germany. Plenty of American haters in Syria, plenty of Russians in Israel, maybe he said his location was Syria because it's better than saying Israel? I replied in Arabic. it says...'you're crazy...I'll kill you! motherf****er' (although the last one is algerian slang ;) Pardon the bad language.
Anon UK...I agree with anon Germany! GREAT JOB! sorry you got scammed, nearly. but there are real (and nice) Russian girls out there as well....just they won't contact you first, that's for sure. I'm currently 'engaged' to one, I've been to Russia twice to visit her and she's been here once. We're currently waiting to see if Swedish immigration will grant her residency.
