Name: Anastacia Andreevna
Other Comments: I no longer have the very first letter she sent me, it was lost in a computer crash. This is the third. Her name last name was mentioned in the first letter.
Hi! It's me Anastacia. I promised to tell you about myself. So... I try to do it. Ok.
In the first I want to tell that all my life I live in Russia and I never be outside of
and this is the first reason that I find a friend in another country. I learned in several
foundations like school, college, university and I have professional medical education, my
speciality is an anesthetist and I've all certificates and patents for this kind of activity.
Do you know how much anesthetist earn in Russia? Sometimes about less than ten thousand of roubles
and it's about less than three hundreds and sixty american dollars because one dollar is just about
twenty six roubles. It's not so very bad here but I know that other people earn much more because they
have job outside of our country. This is the second reason but I have third and it's not less important
than previous two reasons. I havn't any boyfriend at this time, I hadn't husband or serious relationship
before because I learned and wanted to be professional medic, now it's time for my job and making family
but I don't want to have job here in russia. I want to have it in united states because the salary is
much bigger and the country is more better and I will have it very soon because I have the license and
my request is in progress. I have the contract already. Hope you understand that I will live in united
states and I could choose the place where to live because there are many places where I could work. I want
to find friends in united states so this is the reason of my email to you, Alan Are you still interested
in knowing me? Now little more about me. I enjoy going to movies, beach, parks and other places. I feel
I am definitely an easy-going, fun, romantic, open-minded, honest, sincere, and loyal girl also. I hate
drama and dishonesty. I wanna go slow and take our time and feel assured that the two of us have made the best
choice also. Write me back tell what you feel and if you do wanna still connect with me I think we
should talk. I'm really glad we managed to match each other. So on average what do you do to pass
your free time? I'd love to hear about hobbies of any kind that really capture your interest. Once
again I want to tell you that I will come to united states after few weeks or month so we can be
friends and maybe meet in future who knows. As I told you before Anastacia is my real name, you can
call me Nastya for short or familiar. I'll be glad if you will send me your recent pics as well!
Waiting for your reply asap, Nastya.
P.S. If you are not interested in knowing me now, please let me know, ok?
And here is the latest letter, the money letter she has been leading up to.
How are you doing? I hope everything is going well for you. I am so sorry but I didn't have a chance to
write you earlier. I am well. I went to some my relatives and friends who live in neighboring city that
ask they borrow me some money. Unfortunately it was unsuccessful. My mother is feeling well and her
doctor said that she is recovering pretty fast. I'm very glad that everything goes well for her. My
aunt Vera is feeling good too. She lives in our apartment now and will take care of my mother in the
nearest future since I'm leaving to NYC. I hope that friend Katerina will help my mother also.
Well, I tried to find more money in this days, but it seems that I took off all money from my relatives
and friends already. I also tried to formalize a loan to my aunt Vera, but since she is a pensioner and
does not have appropriate income to get such loan I was refused again. I started to feel that the things
will not work out for me, but I decided to go to my agency and ask them if I could get an advance ($5400)
which I'll get in NYC here in Zaozerniy. But I was disappointed again. I was told that I'll get my advance
as soon as I'll sign the contract. When I'll sign the contract I'll get this money in cash or they could
be deposited into my account which I'll have to open. I was absolutely upset Alan. I asked in the agency
if I could get a loan but do not tell in the bank that I'm leaving to NYC. And I was told that when I'll
pass the registration in the airport I'll be check out completely - they will check my documents, baggage
and my credit history! And if I have a debt I'll not be allowed for boarding. They showed the simple example:
Let's imagine that somebody got a loan of $100000.00 dollars (or more) and fly away. In this case the bank
has no possibility or law to return the money back. Alan, I have to confess - I made a mistake. I was asked
before the operation: 'who will pay the bill after the surgery'. And I told them that I will. I have never
expected that it will so expensive. I was told that it will be much cheaper. So I signed the paper where I'm
figuring like a payer. What a fool I am! But what I have to do? What did you do if you will be on my place?
I suppose you will do the same Alan. I do not know how it is accepted there but here in Russia it is very
common when the children help their parents especially if they are pensioners. Alan, please do not blame
me too much; I know that I did stupid thing. I learned my lesson well. But I do not know what to do now. My
agency said they can wait 3 weeks and then my work place could be occupied by another employer. I know it
could look weird but it seems that you are my last hope. I know for sure that I will not earn $970 dollars in
3 weeks, it's impossible. Alan, could you help me with money somehow? It will be not a gift! I want to borrow
the money from you. I swear I'll repay the money back to you as soon as I come to NYC and get my advance. I
believe I can send the money from NYC to you somehow, or I could repay the money when we'll meet. Please believe
me Alan, I'm not going to deceive you! I have no reason to do so. My new life is waiting for me in America
and I hope YOU are waiting for me too! Please let me now if you could help me. And if you could I'll give the
information on how you could help me, ok. Please do not think that I push you to do it. If you can't I'll
understand then. I know that many people in America live from check to check and maybe you have your own problems
that need your attention. But I hope you will help me Alan. Maybe when we meet we will laugh at this together,
but for now I really need a support. Well I have to close now. I'll try to find out something, maybe the situation
is not as bad as it seems! I'll keep you informed!
I'll wait for your reply anxiously!
With Deep Affection for You!
Your Russian g/friend
...not good to post her photos on this site until you're 100% sure she's a scammer. Are you sure of that? Or you can post an advanced header from one of her mails and we can trace her IP address and confrim.
Otherwise, here are a few Russian dating scam signs, if several or more fit your girl then it's scam (which we can then confirm with an IP trace)
# 'girl' writes to you first on a dating site (or an email appears out of nowhere in your mailbox). Real Russian girls are rarely that bold. (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.
# 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 city first.
# scammers rarely have children, but all the real Russian women I've ever met 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 have 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 form letters with a strange format, punctation, layout. (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 is almost as complicated. And normal tourist visas + costs would set her back 3000+ dollars. 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.
# 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?
Aside from the fact that the site already have a picture of her posted as Natalya or something like that (I might have spelled it wrong), and the fact that I have no idea how to send you the advanced header there is the fact that she did NOT contact me through any dating site, she just sent me a letter out of the blue.
Obviously someone recognized her, since they wrote the name 'Brandy' under one of the pictures.

If you were not contacted through a date site and received a direct email, here's the answer.
Some scammers use an email extractor. A program that simply searches the web for email addresses and logs them. Depending on how long they run the program, they CAN come up with millions of addy's.
Then they just mass email. I get at least 2 or 3 a week calling me 'honey' 'sweetie' etc., all signed by MEN. And I am of the 3 legged deer species.
Hello dear! What is your name? 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 soon!I hope I will be lucky enough to meet you in the real life soon!
Yesterday I told my mom about you. She said that now she doesn`t worry about me as before because now she knows you are a kind
man and can help me if I need your help. You can show me your city and tell me more about the life over there!
I think I didn't write you I like cooking. I can cook some Russian dishes 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 don't like 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 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.
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. Actually my favorite actor is Johnny Depp and I like all movies with him. I've watched Pirates of the Carribean
(part 3) some time ago! I think the third part is not as good as the first part. Have you seen it?
Could you recommend me any 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.
Sometimes I go to the theatre but not often. There is only one small theatre in my city and there is nothing interesting.
If I want to watch a good play I should go to the nearest big city, there sometimes can come some famous Russian actors
and dancers but I can't go there often because it's quite expensive.
I want you to know small things about my life, because it will show you who I am.
Ok, I think I will finish my e-mail for today, because its rather late here and I should go home to cook some food for my mom and brother!
I`m sending one more pic...
