Sorry, but I was not able to post everything at once. Here is more information to confirm it is a scammer.
My first contact with her was made on MatchCity.com in February 2007 where she has a profile posted at address http://www.matchcit..?ID=68695.
She also has a profile posted on several other web sites including WebDate, RussianPersonals, SomebodyForYou, AbsoluteAgency, AdultSingles, and who knows where else.
She says that she uses an Internet cafe in Arzamas, but e-mail headers indicate that she uses 'The Bat! (v3.5) Professional' or 'The Bat! (v3.5) UNREG / CD5BF9353B3B7091'. Also the originating IP address 212.44.xxx.xxx in her messages are known to be used by Mari El scammers according to Marisa on the Romance Scam web site. The e-mail header from her last message is listed below.

Here are the first 6 e-mails from her. The first two look like 'rubber stamp' type, but by the 3rd, she is answering my specific and detailed questions. Although she doesn't answer all of my questions, her letters do seem genuine and made me think she might not be a scammer after all. This girl actually had me falling for her. However the e-mail header evidence is overwhelming, and it clearly says she is most definitely a scammer.

Hello my friend <removed>!
I am glad to see your letter to me it was very interesting to read it.
Today I walked on city and I want to tell to you about it. I already spoke that my city refers to Arzamas. In my city there lives 150000 person. My city is removed from capital of our country on 800 miles. This big distance. But is a number of city which more than ours. It is Kazan and Nizhni Novgorod. You heard about them?
My city is not the center of the industry but it was earlier military station. It was considered closed but after disintegration of Soviet Union all varied. Now it is simple city. Our country becomes more open and democratic. On city has as far as theatres. Also there is a theatre of dolls. In the childhood I liked to visit this theatre. Now I sometimes go to theatre but it happens not frequently. You visit theatre or an opera?
As at us many beautiful constructions with running water in park and in general in city. At us very beautiful park. When good weather I like to walk in it. It is very beautiful at any time year. In the spring all comes to life also it beautifully. In the summer all green, in the autumn gold, in the winter white.
There are places where I like to be. Where in the city you like to be?
Also at us absolutely near to city remarkable landscapes it is not necessary to go far to take pleasure in the nature.
I think I have told to you about my city a little.
I shall wait for your letter.
Hello my dear <removed>.
I am glad to see your letter. It is very interesting to me to learn about you.
Certainly I badly remember time when there was a reorganization. To me then was only 12 years. But my mum speaks that she liked this time. I studied this time at school. I read about ' cold war ' when we competed with the USA.
I want to tell to you about my childhood. It was fine time. First my memoirs were in a kindergarten where for children tutors care. I remember this time a little. Then in 7 years I have gone to school and have finished 11 classes. In the childhood I very much liked to draw. At leisure I frequently drew houses and at school. I also studied in the childhood at art school. Us learned to draw correctly. But when I have left art school the next year to me it was necessary to pass examinations in 11 class and to enter the institute. I did not have time to draw and I as that has deserted this hobby and did not develop it.
After school I studied in institute of 5 years. I studied at economic faculty. I accepted active participation in a life of university. Participated in student's concerts. When I have finished university I began to work and I work now. What memoirs at you about time when you studied? What hobbies at this time at you were?
I think now it is necessary to stop. It is the next step we learn better each other.
I shall wait for your letter.
The best regards.
