Hi Jeff!
It was a great surprise for me to receive your e-mail. I thought that you did not receive my letter. Don't worry your address is kept confidential by the agency. You corresponded with Galina in 2004. You sent her several letters she told me. I thought for a long time if I can use your postal address. One day when I felt to be very lonely I decided to write you. I did not read your letters and I have only a part of your letter where you write your address. Galina told me that you live in Maryville, have never been married, have two brothers and work as a building contractor. Galina stopped the correspondence with you because she went to work on the Black sea in the dancing club.
When I say that I am a real lady I mean that I am not one of the women who sending photos of pretty women to get the man's attention. I am better in the life then on this photo. I would try to send you another photo.
My son is 14 years old. I am divorced with his father about 6 years. I am the designer of the home decoration.
You ask me what made my think I would like to correspond with you. It is very difficult question. I think we do not know where we can find our happiness. I think that you are sincere and open man.
About our meeting. I think it would not be a problem. We have to learn more about each other more quickly. I can call you. I am ready for this. When it would be better to call you?
With kind regards. Olga.

This is when she asked for my cell #

Hi Jeff!
I congratulate you on your birthday (better late than never). Wish you all the best. Cheeks.
I am sorry for the delay. I continue to travel on business matters. And I still don't know when I am going to be back home. If you give me your phone number I'll try to get in touch with you as soon as I can. If you are not ready to give me the number then as soon as I get back home, I will give you my contact info at once.
I hope you are well.

Hi Olga,
I received your letter on June 30, and I am still trying to think of what I should write to you in response. I have to say that I am very flattered that you would make such an effort to establish contact with me. I am also very impressed with your photo. You are a very pretty girl.

What impressed me the most is that you did, by yourself, what I have been trying to get women from Russia and Ukraine to do for a couple of years. That is, to use email instead of the agency to correspond.

Of course I do have some questions that need to be answered in light of what you have said in your letter, as well as some questions because of things you didn't say.

I understand that it is hard to write a letter in another language, so don't think I am complaining that some things are unclear. I think you did a wonderful job of writing a first letter. It was wise not to try to say too much. On the other hand, most Russian women tend to write one sentence subjects, so it is hard sometimes to really know the details of what they think. So, you see, you are normal.

First, I would like to know how you got my address, as this information is supposed to be kept confidential by the agency. You said you got it from your girlfriend, but I don't remember having written to anyone in your city for at least two years. The only way someone should have gotten my address is if I had given it to her myself, so I would like to know who your girlfriend is, and if you could email a copy of the letter she has that would remind me of who she is. I am not angry at all about your having gotten my address, but I am very curious about it.

Of course I am wondering why your girlfriend didn't want to correspond with me, instead of passing me off on you, but I say this as a joke, so don't take me seriously.

You say that you are a real lady. I don't know whether you mean that you are a refined lady, as the photo obviously suggests, or if you mean that you are not one of the women who try to take advantage of foreign men by pretending to be interested in them, and sending photos of pretty women to get the man's attention.
I'm sure you can understand that it is hard to tell the difference from so far away.

You said that you had a son, but you didn't say how old he is, or how old you are for that matter. Are you divorced, and if so, for how long?

What kind of designer are you? Clothes, home decoration, landscaping? What made you think you would like to correspond with me? Have you seen my profile from the site? What do you already know about me?

It is now August 13. I apologize for for taking so long to finish it. I'm sure you have been wondering if I had ever received your letter, or had interest in you. If you saw my profile, then you know that I am a building contractor. The weather has been very good for business this year and all I have had time to do is work to try to keep up. I had already planned to go to Ukraine the first couple of weeks of September ( in two weeks). I would consider trying to meet with you as well if we decide before then that it would benefit both of us, and we can work out the details of a meeting.

Well, Olga, I must go to bed now. It is after midnight and I have a lot to do tomorrow.

Sincerely, Jeff Henderson

Your story (as detailed as possible):

Her friend who operates an agency in Rostov (Irina- email sends letters to men for the first contact saying the agency was in contact with them but now found 'you'. Eolina (aka Olga Malinina, Ella, Olga Gromova, eolina stinson) has the agency send a photo with a ficticious name. Then the agency gives her the phone number and she contacts the men. Of course the men do not know she is married and is getting ready to burn them. When I called her cell phone number, her husband answered. Plus, the agency is making money from sending/reading letters. The agency has been doing this for some time. I have an email explaining so. I lost thousands and have western union, wire copies, etc. Her friend operates a separate email account for her and answers the letters to the men until Eolina (Olga) gets their phone numbers and contacts them.

I was looking through some other sites and found more
pictures and names for this scammer. She
must be pretty sneaky. Now she is using the alias 'Alya' (Eolina) and is on a couple
other sites. I just wanted to update your site and I sent you another
picture from She was on DiObitz, but they cancelled her membership January 2 as did Anastasiaweb. I guess Alya (Eolina) keeps changing her name because of all the scam sites she's listed on.
Have a good day and thanks again for this great site.

To any newcomers on this thread, PLEASE READ THIS...
and save yourself a lot of grief and/or homework:

The vast majority of Russian dating scammers are not women at all, but actually MEN, mostly students, working in organized cells known as scammer 'offices' - in or around Yoshkar Ola, the capital of Mari El republic, sometimes in Chuvashia....occasionally further afield.

Most scammers are VERY lazy and only looking for quick cash money. They use email extractor programs to get your mail addresses (if you don't have a profile on a dating site, that is)...for example:

...and multiple identities with copied form mails and spam programs on automatic reply, very often the BAT!, with which they can personalize small parts of each letter if necessary.

They mostly won't read your mails until after the pay-off - known as the 'money letter'- because they don't have time, ie because they're mailing, and trying to scam, as many potential vics as they can (economies of scale).....and also because they're semi-literate lowlifes who can't speak much English anyway. They call this initial phase 'zakidka' -- which means 'fill 'em up' in scammer slang. IN OTHER WORDS, you can write almost anything in your first replies and they won't notice, the scammers only get interested when they're curious to see if you've taken the bait.

It's almost guaranteed that the girls in these scam pics aren't directly involved in the scamming themselves because the scammers steal their pics from the internet or pay unsuspecting friends for them, or buy and exchange them on scammer websites. Mostly they steal them! (Once an experienced Russian scammer actually admitted to me that he stole all his pics from and Occasionally they'll use a local girl for a pic set, usually a scammer groupie. Real female accomplices are otherwise only involved either to phone a guy up, for the sake of credibility, or to pick up the loot at Western Union. Occasionally, there are freelance females that operate using their own pics but they're the exception.

And more recently, the majority of Russian scammers have started using proxy servers or IP spoofing to hide their real locations so ALL YOU REALLY NEED TO DO IS TRACE THEIR IP ADDRESS to confirm the scam! (if you haven't worked it out already, of course). Untraceable IP address = scam.

Seems 12.7 MB pictures can be uploade to delphi. My wild guess, low resolution scan like 100 dpi

The penultimate line is among equals, widest of the thread starter post. The whole thread is now destined to retain its width, ... Unless, a text editor with word wrap set to on,
at or before 120 characters, like my notepad first. Then my copy / paste to delphi will interpret each wrap as a hard newline charater. Had I used any word-processor like
wordpad, I will have to scroll too much East-West to read this post. The same problem with typing dirctly in the delphi comment box. Finally before posting, I manually enter a Carriage Return.
