From: 'Anastasiya' Greetings Pierre!!! I was very glad to receive your letter. How are
you doing at you? I'm fine. My name - Nastya. When I was small my
parents named me Nasten'ka. Hardly later, when to me began more years
and already went to school my parents began to name me Nastya. When I
stopped to study at university my parents named me Anastasiya.
Anastasiya sounds more on the adult. As if my parents wanted to show
me, that I have already entered an adult life. And it is valid so. All
this my names. You can name me any of these names who is pleasant to
you more. I like all my names. And how you were named in the childhood
by your parents? I live in remarkable city. My city refers to
Novocheboksarsk. This city is in Russia. My city very small, it even
it is difficult To consider on a card. My city very beautiful. I love
the city for his beauty. In my city it is a lot of trees and bushes.
Especially I like my city in the summer when trees put on the The
green order. All around becomes green and very beautiful. It very much
to like me. I also love my city in the autumn, in the winter and in
the spring. But in the summer it is pleasant to me most of all. My
city is approximately in 700 kilometers from the city of Moscow. It is
rather far. I at once want to be sorry for my possible mistakes. I do
not have good skills of work with a computer. At school in which I
studied, there were no means to get computers. I used a computer only
only a little when studied at university. Since I have finished
university, I any more did not use a computer. I use a computer of all
some days and I can do something not so. Correct for me if I shall
make something is not present so. Well? I am very pleased, that I, I
have acquaintance to you. And you are very pleasant, which are very
important for me. And I want, I know more about your work. I want to
know, that you like to eat. For example: I like to prepare for pies
with various fillings. I love cookies and chocolate in small amounts,
and what concerning yours? As it will help us to study each other
better and to find our love. I am a romantic woman. I love a supper in
candles, and dance slowly. I am very similar to go late at night and
to a kind of stars. I like to create opinion concerning me directly on
personal meeting. But I think, that it will be later. My mum all life
worked as the bookkeeper, it frequently has nervous failures because
on it the big responsibility and if she will make a mistake in
calculations on the work she will be responsible for the big sums of
money lays. Its work very nervous and nerves at it patients. But
relations at us with mum very good because we understand each other.
If it happens it badly on soul she me to share the problem and we we
talk to it on this theme, and on soul at it to become more easy. And
when to me it is bad on soul I come to my mum and I give vent to it to
the soul. At me is many friends and girlfriends, but I think that each
person has one closest person. I have such person, her name is Dasha.
to it I go to have access to the Internet and to write to you. She to
me is closer than the girlfriend. I her think also she me counts the
sister, but the sister not by birth, and on friendship. We with it
studied from the first class. We constantly share with it the secrets
and we from each other do not have any secrets. You have similar? I
shall speak it about you. You not against it? In general we talk to it
on any themes. We frequently go with friends to theatres on operas. To
me very much like to look an opera. You visit theatres? I like to go
with girlfriends on the nature where we have a rest. I like to bathe.
To me of 25 years. I have been given birth on December, 17, 1981. My
sign on the zodiac - sagittarius. I work at school, the teacher of
foreign languages. I a lot of time thought of where me to go to work
after university. To me have offered work at school and I have agreed.
To me delivers the big satisfaction to work for the blessing of a
society. My work will be to train children in foreign languages. My
work gives to me pleasure. I love my work! Our future depends on our
children. How we shall bring up them also what we shall educate them
formation. I very much hope, that all my efforts will help these
children with future to achieve successes in a life. I have come to
the Internet to find serious relations. I done not interested with
relations which some days last. It not for me! I want to find such
person from whom I can feel like happy. I am ready to offer
everything, that at me is to find such person and to be with it and
only with it. I do not exclude an opportunity to create family and to
have children. On the contrary, I very much would want it. I have met
you and is not excluded at all, that you that person. Our life passes,
and I nevertheless have not found happiness in a life. I want to find
happiness in a life and I am ready to create family, and I am ready to
this. I even thought of having children. I nevertheless do not know,
to how many I want Have children. You love children? I do not search
for the rich husband who can execute all My whims. To me the main
thing, that it could provide family. Unfortunately, I have no Internet
of a house. To write electronic letters, I go to familiar. At her
place there is a computer and the Internet and she has allowed to come
to me to it. In general I do not know, that to me still to tell about
me directly. It further we can study more about everyone another. If I
am interesting to you, you can ask me, I be pleased to answer. I shall
send you photos. I only have no any very much. Send to me more than
your photos, please. I hope, that our relations will develop and will
get stronger every day. Write to me more about you and about your
city. I heard about the countries abroad much and it is very
interesting to me. I shall wait for your letter. Good-bye. Nastya.

Does anyone know this girl? I think she is going to scam me.
Eddie from Sweden
she'll only scam you if you let her (him). Is she calling herself 'Elena'?....I would hope so because that's the name on her name tag ..:D
don't recognize her pic from this site though. We can trace her IP address if you post an advanced header.
otherwise here's some general info about russian girls and russian that might help you decide:
If several or more of the following criteria apply to her, don't waste your time:
# 'girl' writes to you first on a dating site...especially a free one (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 obviously 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)....although I have noticed a recent tendency for some scammers to use photos of slightly 'less attractive' girls.
# girl has some far-fetched excuses for you not visiting her in Russia (criminal city, not the Russian custom, terrorism, etc). ALL BULLSHIT!! Actually, the normal way to meet a Russian girl is to visit her in her city first!
# scammers rarely have children, but most the real Russian women I've ever met on the internet did. (except for Moscow career girls)
# photos are too revealing (can't be a respectable girl). Respectability is very important to most Russian women (especially Moscow career girls).
# most of the pics are old and a little bit faded with a curiously grainy quality that soon becomes easy to recognise (overuse?). 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). My fiancée did it. Russian girls aren't all that poor anymore, and if they seriously want to leave Russia, they know that posting sleazy pics will only attract cheap guys.
# girl claims not to have a mobile phone. Very unlikely!!! fer f***'s sake.....do you know a single girl without a mobile phone? Even poor Russian girls can't do without one, they're much cheaper than in Europe and a megafon telephone card doesn't cost that much either. You should be able to call her when you want. 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 outside Moscow 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? And if she can't speak English, why does she have a non-cyrillic email account?
# 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. She doesn't know you. You could be an axe murderer for all she knows.
# 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 you won't be able to trace the IP. Hotmail and yahoo are acceptable if she'll chat with you on messenger.
MOST IMPORTANT...if you get this far:
# wants money for a 'visa' and/or maybe tickets, but IT'S VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR A SINGLE RUSSIAN GIRL TO GET A TOURIST VISA TO A WESTERN COUNTRY! She can get a sponsored visa with your help, but then 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. These are the rules for the Schengen countries...the USA and Canada are almost as complicated. Anyway, a normal tourist visa + travel costs + hotel rooms would set her back 2000+ US dollars for a trip to the US. 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.
There are a few scammers that are more patient and professional. There are even a few real girls scamming, and professional gold-diggers. One or two (mostly in the Ukraine) are not even afraid to use their true identities. These scammers are harder to spot.
But a ground rule is: if you are looking for a Russian wife/partner, you must be prepared to travel to Russia to meet her. And if she turns out to be a professional gold-digger, which has never happened to me personally or anyone I know, you should try to be philosophical and treat it as an exotic trip to a foreign country, have fun anyway, and try not to waste too much money on her.
There are actually hundreds of perfectly nice Russian girls in Russia but you have to go and get them. Chercher la femme.

From: 'Anastasiya' <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Greetings my dear Pierre!!! We already are copied a lot of time and I
think, that with you it is time to us to proceed on you. How you? How
has passed yesterday your day? Than you were engaged? It was very
pleasant for me to read your letter. In it you have very interesting
ideas and I love them. At me everything is all right. I feel
wonderfully. Last night I looked film. Very much it was pleasant to
me. Film referred to 'Intuition'. The main heroes - the young man and
the girl. As soon as they have met, then have grown fond each other,
but have been compelled to leave. They lived in different cities,
thought about each other, but Knew nothing about each other. Only due
to the intuition they could meet again. Film very beautiful and
romantic. You looked this film? Having come today to the girlfriend, I
was very glad to receive your letter. I want to tell, that if you for
a long time will not receive from me letters it does not mean, that I
have stopped with you correspondence. No. Simply the matter is that I
not always can write to you the letter every day. I sometimes simply
have not time to send you a news about myself because I frequently
should remain for a long time on work. Today at me very heavy day was.
I am strongly tired. I almost all the day went on city and helped mum
to legalize papers, that she could receive the new passport. You
imagine, my mum has lost the passport when she went in the bus. As
soon as I began to read your letter then all weariness somewhere was
gone, the mood has improved. I at once have overlooked about all and
began to think only of you. And in general, recently I began more and
more and to think of you more. Recently with me something is created
absolutely for me not clear. At me dream began to vanish. The
sleeplessness has appeared. When I lie down to sleep, I can not fall
asleep. I for a long time to lay, I am overturned with a side sideways
and I fall asleep only in some hours. I became absent-minded. I leave
the things anywhere (that never was with me earlier). Leaving for work
since morning, I overlook to take documents necessary for me
(sometimes I take them home when I have not time to complete on work
and I do work of a house). On work I began to distract frequently from
an affair. With me such for the first time. And yesterday, when I took
a shower, have not noticed, how from the soul has appeared hot water.
The present boiled water! I have been so abstract by ideas on you and
on us that has not noticed it. Fortunately, all has costed. I during
time have made reaction. It is simple a miracle, that I have not
received a burn. I cannot understand, that with me to be created. I do
not know why, but ideas about you do not leave my head. Each person
wants to be happy, and we with you not exception. But various people
become happy for the various reasons. Everyone needs something for
happiness. I hope, that our dreams and desires to coincide. We want to
have happy family, and I think, for which we have this purpose all
preliminary conditions. I think, that we should study everyone another
better during some time. Then I think to us, it is necessary for to
meet. Actually through the correspondence it is impossible to study
the person completely. But when you - with it about, hold it for a
hand, speak with it, study it completely. If we shall be ready to a
meeting with each other it it would be wonderful. On a meeting we
could study each other better. We could carry out a lot of time
together, speak, go in the evenings. I think, which the meeting will
make good for our relations. What do you think of it? I would like to
know about your life more. You probably already saw very much and can
divide impressions. I think the most part from you also. I shall look
forward to hearing from you, I hope, that you can soon write to me.
Kisses and embraces. Nastya.
PS. I send you in this letter my photo. It is a photo it has been made
on the river. We with girlfriends went to bathe. There was a good
weather. But suddenly weather has deteriorated. It became very cloudy
also we began to gather home. I have been afflicted with it, on this
at me such disappointed person. How I look? I am pleasant to you?
