Hello Danny,thank for your photo!!! It was very nice to receive a message from you!
it is my first time I try to correspondence with man in internet world.
I do hope you will be enough patient to understand my writing.
I want you to know that I have only good intentions and I don`t have big
The thing is that I will work abroad for three months or so and I would
like to meet a nice man to be my guide
or just be good friend to spend time with.I think that it is hard enough to
live in foreign town without
friends and also I have never been abroad. I am from so small town here in
Russia,I am afraid to be
lost. I want to see real life and it is impossible to see without
person who knows all sides of the life. It doesn`t matter what age is he or
what is his eyes
color, I just want to know that he is kind and open-hearted inside.
I don't want to live in Russia because I have not any chances here,it
is hardly possible to explain it by the first time but I want you to know
my plans.
In Russia many young girls also want to start a new life abroad, so many of
used a special program 'Work and travel' for people who wants to work
I also decided to do so and to use it. This program just helps to register
documents and gives suitable work
in any state(town)of USA or Canada. I just need to choose.I already started
to register
documents and now I need to decide in which city I want to work.
I`m 29 years old and I`m not afraid of work (I will work as a fitness
trainer). I think it is the right way for
me, I am lost here, and I think that I look pretty enough to find a better
place. I never been abroad so I decided
to find a friend abroad and make his city to be my destination. I want to
repeat the same way,it is my only
chance to change my life. I am full of plans and different dreams.I have
real light brown hair (but some times i'm changing the color) and grey be fair I
like this name. I am not a doll and
I have my own mind.I do hope that you will be not disappointed to meet me
in the real life if we will meet.
Well,I will close this letter and I do hope to get your reply.
I will leave my town in a few days or so (I can't tell you everything
exactly right now) and I would like to
be sure that I have a man who waits for me there. I will work all day and I
would like to find a man to spend
all free
time together to get to know each other better.if you have any interest to
meet me I will be more than happy to
meet you too.
My be it sounds silly but I just don't want to be alone in the evenings,and
I want to be sure
in advance that somebody waits for me!
I think that my e-mails starts to be too long so I will tell you all
details about me and my life
that you would like to know in next e-mails if you will like my
pictures and will want to meet me! I send my different pictures.
By the way this is my personal e-mail adress, so pls write me here,ok?
With best regards

Email #3

Danny hello,your photos very nice! Thank's for your reply so much!!!
I hope soon I will be able to come to your area and we will meet each other!
This time I will write you more about myself. I think you should know
more about my life and my hobbies so you will know if we have any
common interests.
I'm 29 years old, not too young I think!!?
My birthday is December 6. I'm 169 cm tall (5.6.) and 53 kg
weight. I don't know exactly my bust-waist-hips measurements, I
don't have a reason to measure it because I think it's OK and my body
is proportionate )) I take care of my body, I do aerobics three times
a week and I go to the swimming pool twice a week.
I have an older sister. Her name is Marina, she is 34 years old,
she has a 2 years son. Marina is divorced, because her husband was an
alcoholic. We all (me, my sister, her son and my parents) live in two-rooms
As I wrote you I live in Russia. The name of my city is Kansk,
it's near Krasnoyarsk city. Kansk is very small and Krasnoyarsk is
a large city, the main city in our district.
I graduated from Krasnoyarsk Humanitarian University two years ago,
contemporary dance faculty. Yes we have such faculty in Humanitarian
University! So I'm a professional dancer. I don't want to have a
dancer's career because I will have not much time for my private life
and for relationship with a man. I work as a dance teacher, I teach
children from 12 to 17 years how to dance! Also I have a certificate
of aerobics instructor, this is my another hobby. So it would be
perfect if later I will find a work as instructor or teacher of
dances!!! I think it's a very good job for a woman, I'm always in a
good shape and I keep myself not that busy!
Do you know how to dance? If not I can teach you!
When I come to your city I will work as a waitress in a restaurant. I would
like to work as a
dance teacher but I think you understand it's not possible to arrange
such work by Internet because they want to see how well I dance.
Anyway I will try to find such work when I come over there.
I'm sending few photos for you today! I hope you are not tired to look at
my photos?
Also I want to tell you about my parents: My father is 64 years old now, my
is 55. You see my mom is much younger then my father and they are very
happy together.
My mother is a teacher of music in the school. That's why I have another
hobby - music! I finished music school.
So this is another way to have a work - I can be music teacher.
I like classic music, jazz, rock, lounge. I like all kinds of music!
A little about my father: he is in a good shape because we usually make
together, he doesn`t work now, because he is retired already.
I love both my parents and I'm happy my parents will be not alone when I
leave them and will go to another country. Of course I will miss everybody
but I
want to have my own happiness!
I want to try how to ride a motorcycle someday! I've never tried it!
Do you have an International Airport in your city? Please write me
it's name an code. Or write me the name of the nearest Airport to you.
I write you my emails from Internet cafe, I don't have my own computer.
If you want I can call you when I will be in Moscow, it would be nice to
talk to you. We don't have international calls here. I suppose in few days
I will fly to Moscow and start my trip! Today I will tell my parents about
I'm sure they will be happy that someone is waiting for me over there!
There is no any messenger in this Cafe so we can only keep emailing
each other. I hope you are not getting bored to read my emails?
My address here is Russia, Kansk, Kirova 23 street, flat 64.
So now you have a representation of who I am....
I just can tell you that I enjoy life and I try to live to the
fullest, I like to try new things. I'm not that smart.. I was not that
good in mathematics, physics, biology and so on! I don't like to be
smart! But I'm very tender, caring, artistic, faithful, decent person.
Sometimes I can be not well organized, I think everybody had it's own
minuses and pluses.
I don't look any special qualities in a man. I just hope he will be
faithful to me and ready to create a happy family with me and I will
do everything to make him happy. I'm looking for a soulmate!
OK... it's time to finish my email. I'm sending a kiss by the wind to
you and if I sent it to the right destination you should receive it by
evening )))) I hope you will catch my kiss somehow )))
By the way, if I won`t answer some of your questions - pls feel free to
again, I will answer in next e-mails. You know that I write my e-mails
at home and just send it from internet cafe, because there are many
eyes and noise.

Email #4

Danny hello! It's good to write you again! I think I'm a lucky girl to meet such good man as you in Internet! I hope I will be lucky enough to meet you in the real life!!!!!!!! Yesterday I told my parents about you. They said that now they don`t worry about me as before because now they know you are a kind man and can help me if I will need your help. You can show me your city and tell me about the life over there! I think I didn't write you I like cooking. I will cook Russian cuisine for you! Pelmeni, vareniki, blini, borsch, okroshka! You will like it! Besides Russian cuisine I like Italian and Mexican. I love spaghetti and pizzza!!!!! mmmmmmm ! I can't live without it! I like Mexican food because it's very spicy, although I don't cook Mexican dishes too often. I've been told my cooking is very tasty! I like to cook cakes. My favorite is cheese-cake with raspberry! You know... when I talk about food I'm getting hungry ))) I eat everything and I'm not on any diets but usually I don't eat after 7 pm. This helps me not to be fat! I can cook many tasty things for you when we will meet! You know.. almost all Russian men are like bears! They are so rude, they can't be nice and polite, they don't want to have a family. I think you are not like them. And still I very much love flowers! Any! Roses, lilies and our Russian CAMOMILES! The ordinariest camomiles, they so it is tasty smell!!! In the summer they can be met everywhere: on a field, in a wood, even on roads! I so love flowers! It is my favourite colors pink and blue! They such soft and romantic! Still it is pleasant to me green and black! Yes black! He very practical. In the autumn and in the spring at us it is dirty. I like to go to the cinema! I really like to watch a good movie with my friends. 50 percents of movies in our cinemas are Russian and about 50 American. Yesterday I've seen a great historical movie!!! It is called 'Nomad'. I really liked it so much! It was produced by Khazakhfilm (Khazakhstan is situated near Russia) and there you can see some good American actors! One of directors
of this movie is a well known Russian director Sergey Bodrov. If you didn't see this movie find it and watch! I advice it to you! Actually my favorite actor is Johnny Depp and I like all movies with him. I've watched Pirates of the Carribean (part 2) some time ago! I think the second part is not as good as the first part. Have you seen it? Could you recommend me any American movie so I can watch it? What is your favorite movie and actor? Soooooooooooooooo......... what else could I say? I have a driver's licence but I don't have a car. My father has a Russian car and he gives me his car sometimes. I don`t like only cinema! I like theatre and opera too, I like ballet. Unfortunately there is only one small theatre in my city and there is nothing interesting. If I want to go to ballet, for example, I should go to Krasnoyarsk, there sometimes can come famous Russian actors and dancers but I can't go there often because it's quite expensive. By, the way, one thing else about my trip. Agency will help me to rent a room to stay near my future work. I will share this room with a few girls yet, it is usual procedure and it helps to pay the rent (it will be cheaper).And I have a question, is it normal if we will like each other may be it is possible to live together?of course if you or somebody doesn't mind. As you know I will stay there for three months but If I will like there I will be able to prolong my trip. I think I will be able to improve my english and you can learn Russian and I think it will help us to learn each other better,who knows.Do you have a big wide bed?(joke). And now I have some good news for you! After sending this email I will go home, take my packed bags and go to Krasnoyarsk! From there I will fly to Moscow! I`m really afraid to fly on a plane! I hope my plane will not fall down! I'm really afraid! It is several hours from Krasnoyarsk to Moscow. When I come to Moscow and settle down I will write you an email. I hope today I will be able to write you. Please don't worry about me if you don't hear from me today, that will mean I was not able to find a place to stay and I will write you tomorrow. In Moscow I will spend a week or maybe even more, I should make all final arrangements with my documents and after it I will come to you! I've never been to Moscow before and I'm so nervous now... I've never went somewhere alone and now I should go alone to such big city!
I really want to talk to you by phone, but as I don`t have a mobile phone, I will find a public phone in moscow with international calls. You know... I had such great desire to start my trip already.. and now I feel myself like a newborn kitten who has even didn't open it's eyes... I just want to hug my mommy and don't want to go anywhere... but I know that's my dream to start a new life and I will try to turn in to reality! Soon you will hear some news from me from Moscow!!!!!!!! Love and kisses! I hope I'm the one for you! Yours Maria p.s. i like your photo very much!!!

Email # 5

Danny ,hi!!! I'm so excited to write you again!!!!!!!!!! I'm in Moscow! You can't imagine how happy I am because I already started my trip to you! I have wrote you short message from aiport internet-cafe before flight to Moscow,have you received it??? Now i'm here)))) I still cannot believe I've done it! WoW! As I wrote you I was scared to fly on the plane but everything was OK and I'm still alive )))) Moscow is a really big city! I've been told the population of Moscow is about 10 million of people! From the Airport I went by bus... it was so long way... about 1 hour and 30 minutes. I've seen so many nice places in Moscow while going by bus! When I got off the plane in the Moscow Airport policeman asked me about passport and he looked at me like I am an enemy ))) I think all people here are a little crazy because of terrorism. Everything here is very expensive, not like in my city... and everywhere are big crowds of people! Everywhere is so many people! I feel uncomfortable because of it but I hope I will be OK soon. I found a place to stay, I rent a room from an old woman. She is about 70 years old. She said her husband died 2 years ago and she doesn`t have money to live, so she give in rent rooms in her apartment. She is very nice woman. She said I have to be very careful. You know... she said many girls from small cities come to big cities, they are looking for a better future and fortune but because they are from small cities they can`t imagine that their way to find the happiness can be not so easy as they thought... and some of them can end up as prostitutes or something like that. She said I should be careful when I will meet you!! But I don't worry about you! I feel with all my heart you are really nice man! Sorry I wrote you about my worries.. I have nobody to write about it. My parents and my sister are worried enough about me and I don't want to make them to worry more. I think that's really good I've met you! I can write you about everything. I miss my parents... but I'm getting better with every hour )) Now I'm very hungry and I will go and eat something.
Please confirm the name of airport and be sure you wrote it right. I am afraid to make any mistake... I hope everything will be fine. please write me as soon as possible!See you soon! Great kiss from moscow!! Yours Maria p.s. i have scanned some photo special for you, i hope you will like it

I copied and pasted the 6th letter that they normally send and sent it to her, have not yet received a reply. I had sent her several emails through the time of her emails, and never once does she ever answer any of the questions you may ask her. Don't be fooled by this girl, She is a player and a scam.

2007-09-20, 17:51:40 from Louisville, United States  

I have received 6 letters total. She has not asked for any money or anything yet. So I can't tell where the scam part comes in yet. So far all I can see that she has done wrong is send the same emails under several names to different people. I have seen the fraud in this but as of yet, I have not heard of anyone being scamed or even asked for any money. I have not done anything to tip my hand to her that I know she is not real. I am still playing along but I have not gotten anything from her for a week now. I will let everyone know how it continues, if I get anything else from her. I asked her to say something about what I had been saying in my letters, so that I knew she was reading and understanding everything. She did respond back with :
'i'm so sorry for what happened to you in is reall awful...'
But then went right back to her same pre written letter. That is all I could get from her to try to convince me that she was real. I have 16 pics of her total, but only two were different. The rest were the same as everyone elses.I will be in touch.

Letter #1:

Hi Lance! So nice to hear from you! Really!!!
I have dropped you a line on singlesnet and you wrote
to me back on my e-mail so soon!!!
I think it's a real luck cause these are just my first steps in
the internet and i'm not very self-confidant talking honestly.
I also know my English is not perfect sometimes ,but believe me
I want so much to improve it and one day I will.
I am 28 y.o. I have blond hairs and bright eyes, attracted as often
people say.
You know i always loved languages and getting acquainted with other
I live in small provincial town in but I read a lot, and I know there
is another world,
which varies from what i am used to.
So I can communicate in English, even if a little bit and i have a
I will be honest with you, don't know why but it seems i can trust you.

So I have a dream to try myself and to find a job abroad.
I feel I am intelligent and skilled enough for that and am not afraid
of work.
I'm not lazy, you know. And there is one more thing about me -I like
That's why when i found an advertisement of the 'Au Pair' program I was
just so excited!
I joined this program and very soon i will come to your country to
You see, it's such a chance for me to leave my country and to try
myself in another place!
A chance to start a new life! Maybe it sounds trivial and you heard
often that there are
no opportunities in Russia for people, but it's true! That's why I
decided to seek a chance to move.
And 'Au Pair' is a fantastic opportunity. I can do what i like (taking
care of little kids),
make money, improving my English, and see the country.
The only thing is that this is the first time for me to travel so far
and I am a bit afraid of that.
So I decided just to find maybe a good friend via internet before my
I have not yet chosen the city I would leave for but i want it to be
the place where there is
somebody who is waiting for me probably.

You know i never leaved my family and I am so afraid of being alone, of
spending the after work evenings all alone.
I am sorry that I opened my heart but i want so much to find a soul
mate and to spend my being abroad with him.
Just a person with whom I could feel home, feel comfortable with.
I hope you will reply to my sincere letter and somewhere inside i
really hope you will be this soul mate.
If yes i will choose you city and come.
Looking forward to hear from you soon.
Please reply to me sooner!
And these are my photos, hope you will like hem.
Sincerely, Kristina

p.s. on singlesnet i gave you my e-mail,
but i will write to you only from this e-mail on yahoo

Letter # 2:

Letter # 3:

Hello again Lance!
And thank you so much for your answer, that made my smile happily. (I
wish you could see me smiling+))
I was not mistaken in you I know we can communicate and enjoy it.
First of all here comes the best news : I am coming very soon!
I am so happy we will have possibility to meet shortly in real life!
But before my coming I just wanted you to know more about myself.
And you know there is so much I have to tell you.
Firstly let me introduce myself. My name is Kristina Martynova and I am
28 y.o.
My birthday is August 6. I'm 168 cm tall (5.6.) and 53 kg weight.
Thanks God and nature I am lucky to have good shape.
I care about how I look like, so I visit the swimming pool several
times a week,
which makes me feel dynamic and active. As I told you before I am blond
and attractive as people say.
I will send you some photos of mine for you to have a chance to believe
your eyes not only my words.))
I really hope you will like me!!!
I live in Russia as I also said. The name of my city is Tulun, it's
near Irkutsk city.
Tulun is very small and Irkutsk is a large city,the main city in our
I love may family which consists of my father who is 61 years old now,
my Mom, 49 y.o and my older siter.
You see my mom is much younger then my father and they are very happy
together. You know I also dream of finding some one so that
I could be as happy and comfortable with him as my parents are
together. Marina, my sister, is 30 years old,
she has a 2 years old son. Marina is divorced, because her husband was
an alcoholic.
We all (me, my sister, her son and my parents) live in two-rooms flat.
It is not easy as you may understand but I love my family so much and
will miss them all.
Although I want to be happy myself and eager to do everything even if
to move to another city, another country!
I finished Irkutsk Pedagogical University and always wanted to work
with little kids.
Since I finished the University I worked in the kindergarten with
I loved this kind of job but my income was so poor that I had to quit
and work as a private baby sitter with
our neighbors' children. So I can do the same abroad you see.
And have much more pluses like seeing the country, learning the
language and finding my destiny,
I really hope so! I can work as a baby sitter with very small kids
cause I also have such an experience.
I helped a lot my sister to take care of her little son.
Else I can work with older children to take them to the school and
back+ You know I am so excited that
I am coming soon and will see so much new things.
And the most important that I will see you!!! I want so much that you
would like me!!!
Do you have an International Airport in your city? Please write me
it's name an code. Or write me the name of the nearest Airport to you.
I write you my emails from Internet cafe, I don't have my own computer.
If you want I can call you on next week, it would be nice to talk to
We don't have international calls here.
People in the Au Pair program agency told me that everything is ok with
my documents!
I suppose in few days I will go to Moscow to start my trip! I can call
you from there.
I will tell my parents about you and I am sure they will be so happy
for me! Because there is somebody
who could take care of me and help me in a foreign country.
I want you to know all about me. You see I don't have secrets from you.
There is no any messenger in this Cafe so we can only keep emailing
each other. I hope you are not getting bored to read my emails?
My address here is 665264,Russia, Tulun, Sorokina street, house 4 flat
Now I think you will have at list a little picture of who I am and I
really hope you will like me!
What's more about myself+ To tell you the truth I'm not that smart..
I was not that good in mathematics, physics, biology and so on! I don't
like to be
smart! But I'm very tender, caring, artistic, faithful, decent person.
Sometimes I can be not well organized. But I know to love and take
I want to spend my life caring of my future husband and kids. I don't
look any special qualities in a man.
I just hope he will be faithful to me and ready to create a happy
family with me and I will do everything to make him happy.
I'm looking for a soul mate I told you! I really don't care of my man
color of skin, eyes, his age or profession.
I am afraid this time my letter is too long.
Sorry! I wanted so much to tell you! We shall meet very soon!!! Please
never hesitate to ask me questions,
but if I won`t answer some of your questions - pls feel free to ask
again, I will answer in next e-mails.
It is just not so easy and comfortable to right letters in the i-net
cafe' always so crowded and noisy!!!
I hope to hear back from you sooner!

Tender thoughts+

Letter #4:

Hello, dear Lance!
Again such a pleasure to writ to you! It's so pleasant to know the
tapped by my fingers will reach you in reality+ I think a lot about
If only the miles that separate us could disappear+I wish I could see
your eyes and
hear you speak to me. I want to speak to you, not via e-mails but in
real life!
My parents were really glad to know I will not be all alone in another
They found it was an excellent idea of mine. They wish just the best
for me!
And I am so happy I will finally see you there. I am sending you some
more picts of mine.
Hope you will like them. Some of them I made myself and I was thinking
of you during the process./))
Please let me know what of them you will like most, ok?
As I probably told you I have several hobbies. But I am sure I didn't
tell I adore cooking.
I really do! If you are not against we try one day my cooking debut for
If you don't like Russian cuisine I can make something else for you
like Italian or Japanese food.
What do you prefer? I can prepare pizza or pasta or Mediterranean
In Japanese food I can make rolls and sushi. If you are not against of
sea food of course))));
As for me I prefer eating vegetables, fruits and chicken. But suits are
adorable too!
My parents love when I make a dinner for them. Really hope you will
appreciate it too!
You know Russian men could never appreciate such things as dinner made
for them.
They all take for granted and don't know to communicate with girls. But
I was so lucky to meet you in this e-net world!
I also love painting and drawing. I especially love painting the
landscapes and different beautiful views
like flowers, nature, animals maybe+ I am not a professional painter of
but this is just from the very heart. If you like I can paint something
nice to upon arrival.
Will you show me your city? I can picture some of its beautiful views.
In our city there is not much things to see, unfortunately. Besides the
weather is not always fine.
In fact it is almost all the time all of black and white everywhere.
As for cultural issues there is only one cinema in my city and no
ballet theater.
To visit places like that I have to go to Irkutsk. I like this visits
but it's just expensive to go there often.
I like cinema. In my city I go there quite often. Do you? My favorite
cinemas are romantic comedies.
What is your favorite type? Maybe you have a particular film that you
like most? Could you see it together when I come?
I wish I like it too! I also like films like Spiderman or X people.
Have you seen them?
I don't remember if I told you that I have a driving license. That's
funny I can drive but I don't have my car!
Driving skills will be required for my work abroad hope I will manage
to do it with no probs!
By, the way, one thing else about my trip.
Agency can help me to find the room to rent to stay near my future
work. It is possible share this room with a few girls
who are travelling there with same job programm as me,
it is usual procedure and it helps to pay the rent (it will be
cheaper). I am a little afraid of that.
I should have never lived in a rented room with other people I don't
know and may be don't; like+ and I thought about you+
please tell me what if you will like me and I will like you? What if we
would find it more comfortable to be together
is it possible that we live together? Will you be against? I keep my
fingers crossed I wish so much you would like me!
I will stay in your country three months, but you know if I enjoy it I
can stay longer.
I hope we would like being together, studying cross-cultural questions
about our different countries or simply talking.
Remember I also wish to improve my English!!! We can just chat or watch
TV or to sport together. What do you think?
So it's time to finish my letter to you, dear. I am going to Irkutsk
right now and from there exactly to Moscow!!!
This will be the very first time I can take a plane! I never did it
before! Hope it all will pass ok for me!
It is several hours from Irkutsk to Moscow. When I come to Moscow and
settle down I will write you an email. I
hope today I will be able to write you. Please don't worry about me
if you don't hear from me today, that will mean I was not able to
find a place to stay and I will write you tomorrow.

In Moscow I will spend a week or maybe even more, I should make all
final arrangements with my documents in the agency and after it I will
come to you!
I've never been to Moscow before and I'm so nervous now... I've never
went somewhere alone and now I should go alone to such big city!
It is so crowded and noisy with all these people hanging around+ and my
best desire is to give you
a call from there, right from Moscow! Unfortunately I don't a mobile
phone of my own.((
So I will have to search a public phone that can perform the
international calls..
I am not a specialist in such technical things but I will do all a can
to contact you from Moscow!
And to tell you the truth I am just eager so much for all these changes
in my life especially for meting with you!
So will get back to you really soon from Moscow!

Tender thoughts and kisses!!!

Letter #5:

Hi dear Lance!!!
i'm so sorry for what happened to you in is reall awful...
Fantastic! I am in Moscow! Finally I have made up a real step on my
long way to you.
I never hesitate in my desire to change the life and now I even more
that all this is just for good! I was so scared to fly by plane but you
what I told myself? I said to myself: 'Culm down, keep cool, it's just
the first part of trip,
just like preparation for another long fly to another country!' So as
you see it works well.
I am in good health and mood!
Moscow+ It's really really crowded and noisy.
So much people in the streets! Even more than I expected!
But I have to stay here for just a bit to make final arrangements for
my voyage.
Still I am a little nervous I am so far from my home from my parents
and friends,
from all the things that are common to me! You know you are the only
one that makes me cheer up and keeps me confident.
Here in the capital with all these people hanging around and staring at
me strangely I feel so miserable.
I hope you understand me.
I rent a room in the flat of an old lady. She is kind to me.
Poor woman needs money and have to give one of the rooms in her 3 rooms
flat for rent.
You know just everything here in Moscow is so extremely expensive if
comparing to my town!
Unfortunately I don't have enough time to write you a good letter.
I have as always so much to tell you! But i Hope we shall speak a lot
when i finally come.
Imagine we shall meet each other very soon! I will go to the travel
agency tomorrow or
sunday and as far as i understand i will be able to travel to your
country very soon, all my documents will
be ready nearly 10th September.
I made some photos of my myself here, i just need time to print them
and will send to you.
You know I heard a lot stories about girls who come from little towns
to the capital
with a dream to start new life. And majority of that stories didn't
finish ok.
I know i should take care too. But I also know there will be you who
will protect me and assist.
This thought is keeping me strong. I was really lucky to find you.
Please confirm the name of airport and be sure in correct spelling.
I am afraid to make any mistake... I hope everything will be fine.
please write me as soon as possible!See you soon! Great kiss from
Yours Kristina

Letter #6:

Honey, I'm happy to write you from Moscow again!

and also i have scanned one of my favorite photos,
which was made 2 months ago, i hope you will like them)))
Do you want any souvenir from russia? Pls just tell me!!!! I already
bought few magnets (again I'm not sure this is the right word, I
didn't take a dictionary with me in Internet cafe but I have it with
my luggage) with images of Moscow and Kremlin. You can hang up them to

So I will write soon is possible with all details.
Ok, honey, as soon as I receive the information about
my trip I will write you.
Moscow is very big and nice city and I like it.
Anyway I feel myself so lonely here...
Everyone rush somewhere and I don`t have any friends in relatives here.
You know in small cities (like in my city) the life is so slowly,
hurry somewhere and here everybody is in a hurry.
Yesterday I was in Russian art Gallery, I really liked it. In past I
saw this
paintings just
in books on pictures and now I`m able to see in real life. I`m so
exited! I like arts so much!
I feel myself like I`m able to do everything in the world!!!
Also I walked in the Gorky Park... I liked this place too.
Do you know the band Scorpions? and their song Wind of Change?
Walking down the street
Distant memories
Are buried in the past forever.
I folow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change.
Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams...
With you and me.
Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
in the wind of change....
Scorpions is one of my favorite bands! by the way))))
Thinking of you all the time

don't worry, the money letter's coming soon.

thanks for posting. I don't think we've seen these pics before, or this girl. But the pics of Moscow look quite old. I have never seen Red Square with so few tourists.

Döh. It's a Russian dating scam. Scam gangs in Yoshtar Ola, Mari el republic, want you to send them money for 'visa and tickets' so they don't have to earn an honest living. Sadly, quite a few guys fall for it.

For any newbies on the thread, here is a little GENERAL INFO ABOUT RUSSIAN DATING SCAMMERS.
If several or more of these 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 Yoshtar Ola, Mari-El Republic 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 :). 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.
# girl has some far-fetched excuses for you not visiting her in Russia (criminal city, not the Russian custom, terrorism, 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 the real Russian women I've ever met on the internet did.
# photos are too revealing (can't be a respectable girl). Respectability is very important to most Russian women (outside Moscow).
# most of the pics are old and a little bit faded with a curiously grainy quality that soon becomes easy to recognise (overuse?). A serious girl who's looking for a partner, would save up and go to a professional to have a photo set done, and/or borrow a digicam at least (dates should also be on the photos you receive). My fiancée did. Russian girls aren't all that poor anymore.
# girl claims not to have a mobile phone. Very unlikely!!! fer f***'s 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 when you want. On the other hand, not having a landline or a computer is quite common.
# very long rambling/ecstatic form letters with a strange format, punctation and layout written in scamlish. (world's worst Babelfish copy)
# writes everyday in English (how does she have time if she's working? + most Russians outside Moscow can hardly speak a word of English). Anyway, what's the point of finding a girl if you can't communicate with her, at least on a basic level?
# doesn't answer direct questions (sometimes factual mistakes in the letter)
# falls in 'love' very quickly. Don't let your ego or loneliness pull the wool over your eyes. She doesn't know you. You could be an axe murderer for all she knows.
# 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. If she uses gmail, be suspicious too cos you won't be able to trace the IP. Hotmail and yahoo are acceptable if she'll chat with you on messenger, otherwise why does she have a non-cyrillic email account?

MOST IMPORTANT...if you get this far:
# wants money for a 'visa' and/or maybe tickets, but 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. All of these she has to drop off at your national embassy in Moscow WITH PREPAID TICKETS and wait 10 working days. These are the rules for the Schengen countries and USA and Canada are almost as 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! Why should it be so easy for a gorgeous sexy girl just to jump on a plane and fall into bed with you? Be realistic. should check your national embassy website in Moscow for visa prices and procedures.

There are a few scammers that are more patient and professional. There are even a few real girls scamming, and professional gold-diggers. One or two (mostly in the Ukraine) are not even afraid to use their true identities. These scammers are harder to spot.

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. And if she turns out to be a professional gold-digger, which has never happened to me personally or anyone I know, 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 go and get them.

I'm getting Olga's letters right now. Almost exact. I traced her IP to Amesterdam. She found me on She say's she's an Au Pair too. I wonder if she realizes that the US will only issue Au Pairs visa's if they are 17-27 years old. She say's she's 28. She hasn't asked for money and I keep telling her/him I won't be able to help them if something happens in Russia, only if they are here in my town. Say's she'll be here on the 11th Sept. Will see what's next. Only the photo of the one in the dark hair comes up on photo search under that up top you got posted. Only she goes by something different. Happy hunting people.

I got in contact with Kristina Martynova on dating web site and in the beginning all was good. but after asking, answer questions and she sent me some pics of herself, some with parents, others were friends, family. We talked of meeting of what it would be like, I listened to expressed personal desires. I agree of the feelings. Wanted to visit me, she needed $1200.00 for agent and airfare. I had doubts about money requests and found an agency that does background checks and offer a scam check service. That company is called Detective agency of CIS ( ,I am not advertising here, I just do a report about my experience). It cost me about $120.00, but that was less than I might have lost in her pocket. Nothing is 100%. The agency could be a scam? They could miss something? As it turns out, the one that almost got me was actually listed on antiscam web site before I reported her, only with an other pics. Good luck. But I don't give up on the real thing. I'm corresponding with a girl now who seems real, but no matter what feelings may develop, I will pay for a background check before I ever send any money. I add some pics of whore Kristina.

A good post, but we could have saved you 120 bucks! No need to hire an agency. There are lots of ways of confirming a scam:

1. get an address from the girl and send her some flowers. Real Russian girls love it. If the address is a fake, the flowers won't get through and you won't lose any money (only Interflora will get pissed if you do it too often).
2. Any girl who says she doesn't have a phone in lying. fer f***'s you know a single girl without a mobile phone? Even poor Russian girls can't do without one. You should be able to call her any time you want. A girl who is interested in you will go out of her way to prove that she's real. Send her enough money to buy a webcam, or a phone much is that, 20 bucks?
3. a real Russian girl would never ask you directly for money. And in any case, the chances of her getting a visa without you sponsoring her are zilch. Check out the US visa regulations.

4. the most obvious...trace her IP! I can explain how to do it in 5 minutes. Her IP should confirm where she says she is. 95% of scammer IPs don't.

Great that you did some homework though!

Eddie from Sweden, you're right but sending of some flowers costs same $120 and there isn't 100% that a russian florist isn't fake who takes money and speaks, that all girls are scammers. As for a phone my girl has talked with me. And I think, any woman could asks for money, for example my ex asks me till now though she is American.
