Hello my dear, thank you for your kind letter!
At first I think I have to say that I am new in cyber space and I have
only good intentions. you should know that I am not very good writer in english,please be patient to read my
messages and see many mistakes.to be fair I don't know what you want to know about me,in principle
I am usual girl.I think I should tell you about me, my interests,tastes and hobbies.I think I will tell you
about things I want to know about you and you will know my future questions.
I am 25 years old,my birthday is 25 of December.
I so much don't want to get older ,when I can see old women I am
getting crazy to think that it is my future .I do all the best to keep my youth and I keep my body well.In spite of all
difficultes here I am trying to be in good condition and I do a lot of exercises to be in good shape!
I am about 174 cm tall (5.7) and my weight is about 56 kg. I've been told I look well enough ,
and I think that all women have own beaty. I have never been married and I don`t have chldren.
I have one youngest sisters and it is great problem for us because we
have only two rooms flat.you can't imagine what does it mean to be born
in small town in Russia,there are not any chances
to live well,to get a good job.All young people leave towns to search
great luck in big cities but nobody waits for them
there. I want to leave Russia,I know it sounds ugly but I know that I
will be lost here like many young girls before me.
It is not place to grow children and have stable future.I want to meet my right man .
I think in future I can work as fitness trainer I have a certificate.
My mother is my great problem too,she has a great dream to see me
married and she wants to make me happy but I think
it is only my business I am not a little child. She tells me every day
that I should get married very soon...
To be fair I am not sure I am able to explain all in first message I
want to say so much!
I just want you to know that I am not afraid to work,I am fairly goal
oriented and I am sure you will be not
disappoined to meet me in real life.I am going to spend three months
abroad to work in any good place,agency promises to help me
because it is only the way I can leave Russia.I will have all documents
to travel in a few days and i will travel to moscow then,from moscow I will
travel to you and they ask me about name of the city i am going to work,if you don't mind to meet me please
tell me the name of your city and nearest international airport! I will book my flight from moscow!
I think it would be so great to meet my love and stay there forever.I know that
it is not so easy like I think but I think it is possible that I meat my real love.
I want to love and to be loved I want to build our own happiness,only me and my man there.
I don't smoke,I tried to smoke when I was younger.I may have a glass of
red dry vine,sometimes it helps to relax. I try to take care of my body and face. I know it is all I have. My
soul may have any itnterst for you later, I thinkso.I am not a little girl and I know that at first almost all men look
at body ,legs and face.God created males such persons. Well,I think I am lost in my letter,I am not sure you
understand my goals,please feel free to ask.
I live in Russia,town Magachi, pushkina 17-32,it is near big
industrial city Chita ,Siberia.
My town is rather far from Moscow. Moscow is a capital of my country.
I want you to reply if you understand my mind,my intentions,my soul,if
not please reply too,I will continue my
searching. Well,I will close this letter,I think you are tired to read
it.and If you think that I should write
shorter letters please tell me. I write from internet cafe in
Chita because there are not cafes and possibility to
use internet in my small town,we have 4 digital phone number and we
can't call abroad.Even to call in any big town here in
Russia I have to order the call in advance.and I would like to say
please don't worry if I keep silence sometimes I have no
time to travel ,it is about 50 minutes by bus from my town till
Please tell me more about you,your tastes,likes and dislikes .also I
have a few impotant questions----do you
like strong drinks too much?can you be very drunk?very ofthen?can you
be rude with women?
Well,I have to stop or I will write without ending.Kiss you !see you
later. In my next e-mail I will write you more things about myself and
more details about my trip and work.
My honey jonathan!!!!!!!!!!
it is me,can you believe I am in Moscow. I can't believe ,it was
wonderful flight and they gave red vine in plane,wow,I have never tried
such tasty one!!!!!
I was in travel agency today, but my documents are not ready yet, it
will be ready in 2 days.
So in 2 days I will go to travel agency again to get all info about my
And of course, when I will get it - I will send it to you!
It is such great city
and it takes a few hours to travel from one end to other. I took a taxi
from the aiport to the flat i rented for few days.
They have such nice taxis ,it is Ford - Focus -not new one (1998 ) it was so
nice jorney from airport to the flat.
So comfortable car,I have never been into such car!
Taxi driver showed me some nice places in Moscow while he was taking me down
to the flat. Such a great city it is. I have no words to explain.
you can't imagine how great Moscow is,to be fair I wouldn't like to
live here,a lot of cars,people ,
voice and pollution.Ugly traffic and people with crazy eyes.
When I get off plane in airport Moscow policeman asked about
passport and he looked at me like I am any enemy,
I think all people here are a little crazy at terrorism.
Life here in Moscow is expensive. I was going through some shops today
and it is much more expensive than in our town. Food and all the general
things. It is the same country but different prices, what a great change.
I think people living in Moscow are very cautious ,I think so.
But I think that I have done my choice and to be fair I don't want to
live here,it is not the city of my dreams.
you know I am not coward I am not afraid I know it is my chance to meet
kind man .I do hope I am right.
and I think you are too kind to make any bad things I feel it.
Well,I will close this letter ,please write as soon as possible!see
you soon!KISS . Great kiss from moscow!!!!!!!!!!Maja!
I just got a few letters from her myself, thank god my brother googled her name and found this site.
firstname.lastname@example.org from United Kingdom
I recieved the message about the good intentions. Her name is Vasilina Bazhina and she tells me she is from 'I live in Russia,town Kraks, Surikova 15-34,it is near big
industrial city Chita ,Siberia.'
She claims to have travelled to Moscow, which cost 450US $ and said My honey Sean!!!!!!!!!!!
it is me,can you believe I am in Moscow. I can't believe ,it was
wonderful flight and they gave red vine in plane,wow,I have never tried
such tasty one!!!!!
'have about 190 US dollars yet and I think I need about 1100 US
dollars from your side with all travel needs and living'
However she did send me a copy of her passport which seemed to confirm her identity. I won't include her passport photo but another that she sent me. Also the photo's are in numerical order 01.jpg, 02.jpg etc
Sean....typical scam signs...the numbered photos, asking for money. I tried googling the phrase 'red vine in plane' and I got 386 hits!!...LMAO
Notice the links above the photo, which means it's been posted on other threads on this site.
BTW...not a good idea to post your email address, we quite often get dodgy visitors from Yoshkar Ola snooping around.

SOME GENERAL INFO ABOUT RUSSIAN GIRLS AND RUSSIAN DATING SCAMMERS:
The vast majority of Russian dating scammers are actually men, mostly working in small gangs in or around Yoshkar Ola, in Mari El republic, sometimes in Chuvashia. It's virtually guaranteed that the girls in these scam pics aren't involved because the scammers steal their pics from the internet or pay unsuspecting friends for them, or buy and exchange them on scammer websites. (Once a scammer even admitted to me that he stole his pics from army-of-brides.com and mamba.ru ).
Most scammers are VERY lazy and looking for quick cash. They use email extractor programs to get your mail addresses, and copied form mails and spam programs on automatic reply, very often the BAT!, which can personalize small parts of each letter. They mostly won't read your letters until after the money letter because they don't have time, ie because they're scamming, or trying to scam, as many guys as they can (economies of scale).....and also because they're semi-literate losers who can't speak much English anyway. IN OTHER WORDS, you can write any crap in your replies and they won't react, they're only interested when they're curious to know if you've taken the bait. Furthermore, the majority of Russian scammers nowadays use proxy servers or forged IPs to hide their locations.
A girl is only involved either occasionally to phone a guy up, especially if he's suspicious, or to pick up the loot at Western Union, with a false ID of course!
So....if several or more of the following criteria apply to your Boris (the beautiful Russian 'girl' that is supposedly writing to you), resist the temptation to help 'the poor girl' by sending her money. You're really writing to a sleazy guy sitting in a smoky room in Yoshkar Ola, with a bunch of other sleazy guys spamming indiscriminately on laptops .
# 'girl' writes to you first on a dating site...especially a free one (or an email appears out of nowhere in your mailbox). Real Russian girls are rarely so bold as to write to you first. (unless you're obviously very attractive or rich :))) They will often reply to your mails, but rarely take the initiative. It's the man who does the chasing in Russia. Plus if they're looking for a partner, they generally prefer him to be Russian speaking and live in Russia. Much more convenient!
# girl's much too young for you (or too good to be true/looks like a model/porno star)....although I have noticed a recent tendency for some scammers to use photos of slightly 'less attractive' girls as well.
# girl has some far-fetched excuses for you not visiting her in Russia (criminal city, not the Russian custom, terrorism, it's her dream to come to your country, etc). ALL BULLSHIT!! Actually, the normal way to meet a Russian girl is to visit her in her city first.
# scammers rarely have children, but most of the real Russian women I've ever met on the internet did (except for Moscow career girls). It's often the reason that they're looking for a partner.
# photos are too revealing (can't be a respectable girl). Respectability is very important to most Russian women (especially Moscow career girls). They're hardly likely to send a half-naked photo to a virtual stranger on the internet. Think with your brain!
# most of the pics are old and a little bit faded with a curiously grainy quality that soon becomes quite easy to recognise (overuse?). Again a scammer admitted to me that low-quality photos are a key factor in his scamming. I found this strange because a serious girl who's looking for a partner usually saves up and goes to a professional to have a studio set done (often corny ones posing with a chair etc), and/or borrows a digicam at least (dates should also be on the photos you receive). My fiancée did it. Russian girls aren't all that poor anymore, and if they seriously want to leave Russia, they know that posting cheap pics will only attract cheap guys.
# GIRL CLAIMS NOT TO HAVE A MOBILE PHONE. Very unlikely!!! fer f***'s sake.....do you know a single girl without a mobile phone? Even poor Russian girls can't do without one, they're much cheaper than in Europe and a Megafon telephone card doesn't cost that much either. You should be able to call her whenever you want. On the other hand, not having a landline or a desktop/laptop is very common.
# very long rambling/ecstatic form letters with a strange format, punctation and layout written in scamlish. (world's worst Babelfish copy)
# writes long letters everyday in English. How does she have time to write those long letters if she's working? And if she doesn't have a job, how can she afford a computer + internet? Even Internet cafés are relatively expensive in Russia. Anyway, most Russians outside Moscow can hardly speak a word of English. What's the point of finding a girl you can't communicate with, at least on a basic level? PLUS.. if she can't speak English, why does she have a non-cyrillic email account like gmail or yahoo? Most real Russians use mail.ru, yandex.ru or inbox.ru....though hotmail and yahoo are acceptable if she'll chat with you on messenger (preferably with a webcam).
# doesn't answer direct questions (sometimes factual mistakes in the letter). Her replies should be exactly that...replies...however short they are.
# falls in 'love' very quickly. Don't let your ego, loneliness or lust pull the wool over your eyes. She doesn't know you. You could be an axe murderer for all she knows. Russian TV is full of documentaries about Russian girls who have emigrated and got murdered, abandoned, etcetc.
# uses a proxy server to hide his/her location, ie a SOCKS server / GPRS Internet. if you can't trace 'her' IP, it's 100% scam. THE FIRST THING YOU SHOULD DO IS TRACE HER IP ADDRESS. In fact, it's the only thing you need to do really..
MOST IMPORTANT...if you get this far:
# she asks for money for a tourist 'visa' and/or maybe tickets, ignoring the fact that IT'S VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR A SINGLE RUSSIAN GIRL TO GET A TOURIST VISA TO A WESTERN COUNTRY!
She can get a SPONSORED visa with your help, but then she needs a personal letter of invitation from you, a copy of your passport, a proof of your residence in your home country, a completed sponsor's application form (also from you)....not including the documents that she has to fill in herself. She also needs a job in her country and a letter from her employer. All of these documents she has to drop off at your national embassy in Moscow WITH PREPAID TICKETS and wait about 10 working days. These are the rules for the Schengen countries...the USA and Canada are almost as, if not more, complicated. Anyway, a normal TOURIST visa + travel costs + hotel rooms would set her back 2000+ US dollars for a trip to the US. She should be asking you for a lot of money! Immigration would consider her an overstay risk and never let her in without credit. Why should it be so easy for a gorgeous sexy girl just to jump on a plane and fall into bed with you? Furthermore, no respectable Russian girl would ask directly for money, but might accept some if you insisted.
NB...you should check your national embassy website in Moscow for visa prices and procedures.
There are a few scammers that are more patient and professional, who will take months before they scam you for money (though if you follow my tips, you should be able to spot them anyway). There are even a few real girls scamming, and professional gold-diggers (mostly in the Ukraine). One or two of them are very bold, and not even afraid to use their true identities. These scammers are harder to spot, and there is no easy way to identify them, all you can do is use your instincts and common sense, and DO YOUR HOMEWORK!
But a ground rule is: if you are looking for a Russian wife/partner, you must be prepared to travel to Russia to meet her. You also need to behave generously towards her; after all, you need to prove that you can support here (and her kids) if she migrates to your country. But if she turns out to be a professional gold-digger, which has never happened to me personally or anyone I know (but I know it does happen), you should try to be philosophical and treat it as an exotic trip to a foreign country, have fun anyway, and try not to waste too much money on her.
There are actually hundreds of perfectly nice Russian girls in Russia but you have to be prepared to go and get them. Chercher la femme. It worked for me.

Same text as in all the other letters, played along with her,now I'm bored with the game
Beware the more you show interst the better things get. I alway put questions in the
middle of the emails I sent and would never get answers. If you get the nude pic of
her with how embrassed she is for sending it the lie is a treat. Wrote the the agency
she said she used called them a fraud they certainly didn't like it, didn't know thieves
were so sensative. She will send the flight info and it checks out but you can get that
info pretty easy. The biggest screw up was the passport, it brought me here. She
changes names and birthdate, the pics change slightly but always a 26 yo hot blond
whose fitness and dancing teacher. She's good but will never ask anything about you
personally. Asks for the same amount of cash as the others. It was amusing for
awhile but a thieving whore is a thieving whore. Don't get scammed do your research
no matter how good the story
