It never ceases to amaze me how many contributors on this site refer to their scammers as 'she', 'her', 'the scamming bitch', etc.

How long will it take to sink in that you haven't been writing to a female at all, but to a spamming program in Russia first and foremost, operated by a young guy - usually in his early 20s and a student.

Here's an extract from a magazine article on Yoshkar Ola scammers that I translated last year.

[According to the old-time scammers there are almost 300 offices in Yoshkar Ola (other estimates make it 500). Each office has five working scammers, and there are also girls who pick up the money. Of course, there are no official statistics and the situation is estimated visually, but if it's true then every 100th resident of Yoshkar Ola is a scammer. And if we take into account that almost all scammers are students, and usually guys rather than girls, the typical scammer is easily recognizable. In Yoshkar Ola, the capital of Mari El and simultaneously 'the capital of Russian scamming', all scammers recognize each other. 'Yes, it's true, our city is the capital of scamming', Andrei says with some pride. He recently received a transfer of $1,000 and is in a good mood today, 'other cities have scammers too, but we have more. There are so many scammers in our city that it's almost a legitimate business.']

From: This sender is DomainKeys verified 'Miss Yana' <>Add sender to Message contains attachmentsforyou.jpg (75KB)Sorry I didn't write you earlier, I was trying to find some money and I had
some luck. I swear I called everybody I know and I was able to find
some money but not all.
I'm not going to solicit the money from you... That's not fair.
I just want to let you know you have captivated my poor heart and I
just don't know how you've done it. I'm still desperately want to see you!
I can find some money but not enough, maybe you can help me with 550
dollars... I swear I called everybody but I can't find more money!
My mother doesn't have so much money to send me, they live in so small
city. I can't find more money...
You came into my life not too long ago and I didn't think anything of it.
At first I thought we will be friends only, I didn't believe in having
special feelings to someone I've never seen. I never imagined I'd be
falling so hard for you. We became very close but yet we were so
distant. The more I got to know you, the more I wanted to be with you.
Your letters always made me smile even without writing something funny
and without you I'd be very different. I smiled because I was happy to
receive your emails.. You have changed me in so many ways. You make me
want to wake up in the morning to see what life is going to throw at
me each and every day. Your emails mean so much to me. I can't help
but think about you all of the time. Every morning I wake up, during
the day, and before I go to sleep you're always on my mind and even in
my dreams I see you. I wish you knew how strongly I feel and that I am
falling in love with you. I don't know how it happened.. it's so
strange for me....
I am sitting here in internet cafe and writing this letter hoping you
will get to read it soon..
I'm listening to French love songs on my CD-player and it makes me
feel more sad I can't be with you now... The songs really sound so
nice to me but I don't know what they mean. It's like my feelings to
you.... I feel so nice when I think about you but it's so strange
because I've never met you...
I have built my world around my dreams of being us together and I
really like this world... I always want to stay in that world and
never want to come back to reality and I hope that you feel the same
way too.. I'm not sure....
Please don't think Oh, why I met that Russian girl in Internet, she
promised a lot and never done it. I really wanted to come to you but
you know I've never travelled so far away and I was not smart enough
to set up all things for my trip.
I still feel I need you in my life so much.
I pray it will be possible for you to help me somehow.
I wanted to call you but I was afraid you are angry at me
and don't want to talk because I can't come without your help..
When I was a little kid I believed in Santa Claus (in Russian it's
called Ded Moroz - to translate by words it's called Old Man Frost)))
I was waiting every Christmas for presents. And when we were
going to meet each other I felt myself like a kid waiting for Santa
Claus... I was waiting for you....
I've never had such man as you in my life and everything seems a bit
unreal.. you are so different from all Russian men and I still can't
believe you can be attracted to me.. and I still don't believe such
man as you didn't fall in love over there and has some feelings to
And I remember when I was 9 years old I understood there is no Santa
Claus and all presents are brought by my mom I was so disappointed and
I began not to believe in fairy tales...
And now when I think I may never meet you again I feel my worst
disappointment and I don't want this fairy tale to be over...
I thought you would be the best present I've ever had........
And I'm still hoping like a kid this may happen...
Today morning I woke up hopeless... I don't know how could I prove you
my honest intentions and feelings.... I was walking in Moscow and I
decided to take a camera with a timer in a rent. I wrote you I don't
have a timer on my camera. I made a special pic for you, I just wanted
to show you how much I trust you... I hope you will not be mad because
of this pic... I just wanted to feel closer to you... Please don't
show this pic to your friends or someone else. I've never done such
pics before and it is for your eyes only. Also I made a pic holding a
paper with your name but the flash didn't work well and it's not good,
so maybe today evening I will ask somebody to help me to take this pic
again (don't worry I was not naked there!) and I can send it to you.
I wrote you so much and I understand I have to finish this email, but
in my heart I don't want to do that. I wish that time became frozen
this minute before I say my words of good-bye... I want to enjoy every
single moment with you, to talk about all of the things we like and
So, now is the hardest part for me to do again, I have to say
goodbye... If I had my own computer I would write you 10 times a
day... May you feel the part of me wanting to be with you now and may
I have the honor to touch your heart and let you feel my special
feelings to you....
If you can't help me maybe you can come to Moscow.... It's really
beautiful city and you will like it... And maybe you will like m.

What's up with the broad just above? She's clearly not the same person that this thread is dedicated to.

I mean, it's good to have a scammer photo posted, but shouldn't that be in another thread?

I'm new here, so please forgive me if I'm wrong.

GREAT site, though!!! VERY helpful to avoid the scamming scum.

She is now Olga the same e-mails as every one else with me she was useing

Hello from Moscow! I'm so happy I started my trip!
Now I have more time to write you.
I settled down, I rent a small room and it's not that expensive.
Moscow is very nice city and the weather here is very good now, although it rains
sometmies. I thought maybe I will feel myself here uncomfortable because I come
from a small city but I'm OK here. Moscow is very big city and
here are a lot of people, anyway it's not as disturbing for me as I
Anyway I feel a little bit lonely because I understand I will not meet my
family for a long time. I hope I will meet you soon and I will be not
so lonely and you will tell me about my country...
Now I can write you more information about my trip.
I will get a work visa so I will be able to work anywhere over there.
I think it will be not easy to find a work as a cosmetologist and I've
heard it's more easy to find a job as a nurse, what do you think? I've
been told it's very well paid job and I have medical education.
Gary, please advice? Tell me your opinion.
I have a medical diploma and Higher education and I'm a registered
nurse. I have an experience to work as a nurse although last two years
I'd been working as a cosmetologist. I've been told if something will not
works out I will be able
to find another job as a waitress or something like this. I will be
able to stay over there during six months and then I can prolong my visa
or change my status.
I only didn't expect I will stay here for several days more because I
have to pass different English tests and so on. I will be able to fly
to you only in few days. As soon as I have all correct info
about my flight I will inform you.
Please confirm your information again and write me
the name of your closest Airport (maybe international).
I'm afraid I can mix something up please confirm.
Also please confirm your phone number.
In my turn today I will learn everything about international calls and
calling cards and I will try to call you if you want. I've never made
international calls before.
I don't remember if I wrote you I don't smoke and never tried smoking
although smokers doesn't bother me.
I drink socially... maybe a little glass of wine or something like that...
usually on big holidays.
I know how to take care about one's health and I'm healthy without any
diseases or disabilities.
Do you like to drink fresh juices? What is your favorite one? I like
pineapple juice, although I drink it now often because pineapples are
expensive here.
As for food I told you I like to cook. I like Italian food, I think
many people like it. I've been told many times I'm a good cooker!
What is your favorite food? I mean maybe Italian, Chineese?
I'm sending more pics but they were taken not today!
I took some pictures with me and saved on a disc when I come to you
Gary, I will show you more pictures! I have lots of them!
And today I'm sending three pics.
One pic is me with my grandmother and grandfather (by my mother's
side) and two pics near our home in the garden.
Sorry my pics are not so good... I've never had a digital camera.
I'm so attracted to you and I can't wait till we meet each other and I
can touch you.. I can look into your eyes! I want to ask you many
Gary, I think you are very good man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I imagine our first meeting often... how it will be??? I don't know!
But I'm sure it will be wonderful!!!


P.S. Tomorrow I will ask somebody to take my pictures in Moscow and I will
try to send them to you!!!

My scammer has the email

I did not find any information on her at first I did not find any information on her with a search of her email or just 'Miss Olga' but once I put her where she was from I got some hits. And I read the same emails on here as I did in my inbox. I am glad I found out before I got too involved. I did send her to picture of myself so I hope they don't use them but I don't feel like I gave her too much information. Thanks for the help.

Must admit, this person is good! They had me going for over a week but luckily I visited this site before I got my third e-mail. I always go by the saying; if it seems to good to be probably isn't.
I would post all of the e-mails I have gotten, but they all are already here. The only thing that changes is her/his name. The numbers on the passport even stay the same, even when the name changes. I was contacted as Tatiana. Just got the 'money e-mail today.
