I fell for this scam! The letters posted above are the exact same wording, but her name was Alena Gavrilova. her email is alenaenchantress@yahoo.com. She is a registerd nurse from Ugorsk and got her RN degree from 'Tumen medicine academy'. She was looking for a frinend in the US to be her guide when she came over on her work visa to be a nurse. There were problems in getting her visa and needed more money for the round trip tickets, then to show she had travel money. I got better pictures though.

My mother was a good wife till my father died.....
I'm sorry I became sad again..... So many years passed since my father died but I still remember him like we talked only tomorrow.
I want my man to be a good man as my father was. I'm not looking for any special qualities... I just want to man to love me and take care of me... I'm a one man woman and I don't believe in divorces (I mean I understand some people get divorced but I want to have my marriage forever!).
I want somebody who is ready to love me forever.
My favorite color is blue.
My favorite flower is pink rose.
As for music I like relaxing music as Enigma, also I like some rock and jazz. I like different music.

It is so good I'm writing my emails to you!!!!!!!!!! It makes me so happy and also I can practice my English! Sorry I'm sure I made a lot of mistakes today but I try to type as fast as I can!!!!!
I don't know why but I think about you every day! When we celebrated a birthday (I wrote you) my sister asked me why I look so happy! She thought I've met a Russian man and fall in love with him! She was shocked when I sad I met a foreign man in Internet and now I think about this man all the time. Now you know I think about you all the time!!!!! Really!!!! My mother and sister said they wish me luck and also they said hello to you!!!

The full cost of my trip including documents and roundtrip tickets is 1510 US dollars.
I passed all tests and everything and all papers are ready. I will pass my final interview at the embassy this week and they will put all stamps in my documents and I will come to see you!
I can't say I'm too much nervous. I know you are waiting for me and I hope you will tell me everything about your country and show me some nice places over there.
I will travel eco class, I hope my flight will be OK. It's so many hours to spend on the plane, I've never done such big flights.
As far as I remember it was about five hours to fly to Egypt from my city and it's the longest flight I've done.
I wrote already all info about my visa. I will be able to stay over there during one year and then I can prolong my visa or change my status.
I'm happy I have a job lined up and I hope everything will works out!
I want to meet you and talk to you and get to know you better.
I feel we will like each other, at least I hope so.
I would be happy if when we meet you will suggest to stay together or when we get to know each other better you can make such suggestion.
If you decide you know me not well enough to want to stay just friends with me I will stay in hostel for nurses.
I've learnt how to make international calls. I've been told not all public phones and suitable to do this and I've been told which one I can use not far from the place where I'm staying.
If you want me to call you just tell me and I will try to call you!
Also will you pick up the phone or someone else and I should ask to talk to you?
As I wrote you I will come later this week and I will stay here for several days.
So now I have to make final arrangements with my documents.
I told you I passed all tests, I have all documents I need to get a job and everything.
Please try to help me to finish my arrangements.
And I need to pay for this flight. I thought they can pay for my flight because it's a work program but such possibility was available for nurse visas. I wrote you it was H1-C and H1-A visas but the limit of such visas already expired this year and I applied for H1-B. And by the rules of this program it turned out to be I should pay for my tickets by myself. My mom can't help me to pay for my trip, she is lonely, my father passed away I wrote you. And my sister has to pay all expenses for her kids and everything.
One way ticket is also not possible, to get this visa I need roundtrip tickets.
I will wait for your help today!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will give the money back to you as soon as I can. I can't promise I will earn all the money in 2 weeks but in 3-4 weeks I will give it back to you. Nurses in your country earn very good money!
Please send it today by Western Union
I will write you details:
Send it to
Russia,
Moscow,
Alena Gavrilova
They said this is all info you need.
But please for any case write down more info.
My birthday is May, 21, 1981
The address where I'm staying in Moscow is Moscow, Timiryazevskaya 18-15.
The address of the closest Western Union here is MOSCOW INDUSTRIAL BANK ORDZHONIKIDZE 5 MOSCOW, 115419 Also I've got an advice to send you a scan copy of my passport in case you need to confirm my details.
Please send me 980 US dollars and I will complete my trip!
After it please write me all details about the transfer - your full name and MTCN number!!
I will call you as soon as I receive it.
When I receive the money I will pay for my trip and only then the embassy will put all final stamps on my documents.
I've bought you few souvenirs with Russian attributes!!! I'm sure you will like them! If you need something more please let me know, they are not expensive.
I hope so much when I come to you we will like each other! I'm very family oriented woman and I want to have a special man in my life so much!
You are already very special to me!
Please when I come to you tell me more about you and your country! I will listen to everything you tell me and I will do everything you tell me! I trust you really much!
I hope you will not do something to hurt my feelings.... I think you are really good man.
I will never do anything to hurt yours!!!

Your Girlfriend,
Alena

Two weeks ago, I decided to join American Singles for the first time. I saw a profile w/ no picture and the name was random numbers, something like 1128_ _ _ _. The profile said she lived in Hopkins, MN and we seemed to have alot in common. When I sent what the site calls 'a flirt' asking her if I may email her sometime. Then the emails to my hotmail account started pouring in.

From the first email things just didn't add up. Although her profile said one thing, She says she lives in a small village called Ugorsk, Russia. She graduated from Tumen Medicine Academy last year. She now works in Tumen as a Registered Nurse, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah! Her personal email is now 'Enchantress <soprettywomanalena@yahoo.com >'

I've decided to attach the emails and photo's, in case someone out there decides to chat with Alena. Just be careful, I couldn't what I saw when I did a google search for Ugorsk, Russia. Try it out, see for yourself. Apparently her last name is Gavrilova!


Email #1

Hello!!! It was very nice to receive a message from you!
it is my first time I try to correspond with a man in internet world.
I 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
any secrets so you can ask about anything.
The thing is that I will go to work abroad soon, I'm a registered
nurse and I will have a special invitation to work over there 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 want to see real life and it is impossible to see without a
person who knows all sides of the life.
Last few years appeared a special program 'Work and travel' for young
people who wants to work abroad. And many people from all over the
world come to your country and it's possible to make good money over
there!!!
I also decided to do it! But I will have a special visa for nurses. I already
started to register
documents and now I need to decide in what city I want to work.
I'm 25 years old and I'm not afraid of work. 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.
Do you think it's possible to find a work as a nurse over there?
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 blonde 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 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.
Maybe 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'm sending few usual pictures for
you!!!!!!!!!
By the way, this is my personal e-mail address, so pls write me here ok?

My best regards,
Alena


Email #2


Hi, this is me again. Sorry I forgot to write you my height. It's 5.5.
There is a saying in Russia (please don't think it's serious, it's
almost a joke) - small women are made for love and tall women are made
for work. I'm not tall but I don't think I'm short either )) I hope my
height is OK for you.
I finished my work only one hour ago and I'm very tired now. I
will write you everything tomorrow. Sorry this will be short, I'm so
tired now.
I hope you will be at least my friend when I come over there soon!
I'm sending more pics, they are just usual pics, I didn't pose there.
I just don't have another photos now. I will scan more photos for you
tomorrow, if you want I can scan some photos in swimming suit. Let me
know.
I will write again tomorrow............

Almost sleeping Alena....


Email #3

Aaron! Hello again! I'm very happy to receive an answer from you! Thank you
so much!
I'm not sure what I'm looking for. I'm new in internet
dating and I just don't know what can I expect and if that is possible
to have some kind of relationship in internet and then continue to
build it in the real life.
I'm not looking for any special qualities, just a good person!!!
But I really hope to create a serious relationship in my life.
Of course I want to have a serious relationship but at least I want to
have a friend to be not alone over there. I will come over really soon!
I will tell you everything about my trip as soon as I have all confirmations
about everything,
I'm quite superstitious to tell about everything in advance. Sometimes
when you tell everybody about your plans it never works out. So I will
write you about everything in about 2 days.
I was abroad only one time in my life, I was in Egypt last year. I
will send you some photos from there next time. My sister and her
husband presented this trip to me for my birthday last year. My birthday is
May 21.
As I wrote you I'm 25 years old.
I have many hobbies. One of them is bowling (you can see it from my
photo I'm sending today). Also I like to sew
clothes, that dress from the last pic I made by myself. It's a lot
cheaper to sew clothes then to buy it.
As for sports I'm too lazy to go to a gym or do aerobics. I like
swimming! It helps me to be in a good shape. And sometimes I go to
aqua aerobics, I like it much more then usual aerobics! And it's very
good for women to do aqua aerobics because it helps to avoid
cellulite. So I'm in a good shape and I have very good skin ))
I'd been working as a nurse in a hospital. But this work is not well
paid here in Russia and usually nurses here work 24 hours without any
stopping. I liked my work, I like to help people but I didn't like
work conditions in our hospital so now I work at the same hospital but
on reception, I communicate with people who come here.
My height is 5.5 as I told you, I'm not sure what is my weight. You see I'm not
fat!
I live in the city near Tumen (I'm not sure how to write it in
English), it's Tumenskaya oblast. You have states over there (I think
so) and we have oblast (it's like districts). Tumen is a big city and
I live in the city called Ugorsk and work in Tumen. Ugorsk
is almost like a village but it's so close to Tumen, only several minutes
by bus so I do all shopping and everything in Tumen.
I graduated Tumen Medicine Academy last year.
I live with my mom. My father died seven years ago from the
cancer. And maybe that's why I decided to start my medical career.
OK I don't want to speak about sad things any more.
My mom is 61 years old, my sister is 35 years old, she lives in
Ugorsk, she is married and has two kids a boy and a girl.
My mom lives in a wooden house. I wrote my city is like a
village and everybody who lives near us are good friends and they help
my mom so she is not alone. I'm not at home very often because I work
hard. Sometimes I work 14 hours without any stopping.
I don't have any time for private life. I want to go to your country
and to try to start a new life over there.
As I told you I will write you more about it later.
Of course I will miss my family but I asked my mom and she said she
will be happy if I start my life and create a family.
Please tell me more about your city and life over there, I think I can
come over there. Do you think it's possible to find a work as I nurse
over there? I will check it.
You can send me a postcard if you want: Russia, Ugorsk,
Lapina 17. I'm not sure how long does it take to deliver it,
maybe I will already leave Russia.
OK I have to go home, I'm so tired. I have a computer at home but no
internet.
I would be happy to talk to you by phone someday, I can speak
English, although I'm so nervous to talk to you! I hope we will have
no problems in communicating!
Also I write English by myself without any dictionary.
I'm sending three pics: me in bowling center, and two of them from my
work. A woman on a pic is my sister Anna, she came to visit me at my
work. We look like each other but she is not as slim as me because she
already has two kids and her dream now is loose some weight! I think
she is still beautiful!
I like my work very much! And rules over there are not that strict as
in some office job as a secretary or something like that! Sometimes I
can even wear slippers, I like my pink slippers and they are very
comfortable!!!!
Please tell me more about your work and hobbies!!!!!!!


Kisses!
Alena

As I promised I'm sending you my photos in swimming suit!
I hope you will like them!!!!
Sorry I look so confused on my pics! I'm so shy to be photographed in
a swimming suit! I always think if I look good or now and I hope I
don't look fat!
Now I have to go to buy a present for a birthday of my sister
she will be 36 tomorrow. I really have to go or all
shops will be closed soon. I will write you more as soon as I can. I'm in
a hurry now!
Oh I forgot to ask you if you have any Airport in your city? Maybe you
