Hello!!! 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
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 guideor 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 them
used a special program 'Work and travel' for young people who wants to
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, Canada or Europa (or other big
country) . 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 25 years old and I`m not afraid of work (I will work as a Nail
Technician (manicure master). 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 light brown hair and grey eyes. I think I look very good, but
first of all I want to be beautiful inside.
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
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-mail 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 photos.
By the way, this firstname.lastname@example.org is my personal e-mail adress, so pls write me here ok?
With best regards Marija (this is my name)!

For any newbies on this thread, here are a few of the many dozens of typical Russian dating scam signs. If several or more of these apply to your Boris, keep your money in your wallet. All of them have been gleaned from experience:
# 'girl' writes to you first on a dating site (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 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)
# girl has some far-fetched excuses for you not visiting her in Russia (criminal city, not Russian custom etc). Actually, the normal way to meet a Russian girl is to visit her in her city first.
# scammers rarely have children, but all the real Russian women I've ever met on the net did.
# photos are too revealing (can't be a respectable girl)
# most of the pics are old and a little bit faded. Most scam photos have a curiously grainy quality that soon becomes easy to recognise. 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). Russian girls aren't all that poor anymore.
# girl claims not to have a mobile phone. Very unlikely!!! even poor girls can't do without a mobile phone, they're much cheaper than in Europe and a megafon telephone card doesn't cost that much either. 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 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. You could be an axe murderer for all she knows.
# wants money for a 'visa' and/or maybe tickets, even though 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. Without these documents, it's impossible for 'her' to get a sponsored Schengen visa. USA and Canada is almost as complicated. And normal tourist visas + travel costs would set her back 2000+ US dollars. 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.
NB...you should check your national embassy website in Moscow for visa prices and procedures.
# 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 u 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?
On the other hand, you can find plenty of real Russian girls on real Russian sites (and scammers too of course), but you'll have to pay membership.
Hello my dear Armando
I am so glad to see your letter again,I think I am a lucky girl to meet such
man and I will do my best to meet you in real life!
you know I can work in any city of your area because it is free choice and
agency only helps me to get
only travel documents and ticket, and I do hope that we will like each other and
now I have the destination.
The agency will also suggest some places to work in. I do hope I have met my
right man!you know I have told you before one
of my friend worked abroad last year and have met right man,now they live there
and they are going to
marry. by the way now they are arranging the trip to Russia,(he wants to meet
her parents and friends)

think about our future together.

am new here and I am afraid to make any mistake.

am lost and my head is like any big station with a lot of voice!
KISS and Evgenija

Actually it was fun conversing withthis young lady. I see that she sent the same correspondense to others. I liked how no matter what I wrote back to her she didn't respond with anything but the canned writing. It was easy to pick up on the scam but I must say that she looks innocent enough. Asking for money brought me back to my senses. Then I knew the game was truly a foot. She sent many of the pictures above and much more besides.
She is now a certified fitness trainer instead of nail technician. She also had some new geogeous and sexy photos, which some of you had posted. So, there is no need for me to elaborate.
When I got the orginal strange email, I already suspected it was a scam. I decided to play along to see what the scammer was up to. I emailed with her 3 times already. I told her I was not the prince she was looking for because I was already married. She seemed to miss out this fact or intentionally ignored when she replied. It is probably immaterial since she is only interested in money. Interestingly, in her reply, she said she hate people who lied and unfaithful. If I am interested in her, that would have made me unfaithful, so how can she like me?
Anyway, I am still interested to play along with her. She has already gone to Moscow. She had requested for my phone number, but I had omit that out. I should not pass any personal info to her. I will wait for her next reply and what she will write now.
Honestly, how do you guys be so certain the Olga or the scammer is a girl? For all you know, it is a he or probably a group of people with females ready to talk on the phone when needed to.
