2nd mail
Hi my dear and new friend Csuhi!!!
It is very a pity that I did not write to you long time but I had problems with mine e-mail.
I could not send to you the letter.
I have made new e-mail and I ask that you now wrote to me on this e-mail.

I am very glad that you have interested in me and I will try not
to disapoint you and will get everything new about me. I am asking
you to write me about you everything that you are able to say me.
Your work about your family your close friends, your hobbies...
When I read you profile it seems to me that you are very interesting person, handsome and
simply good person. I hope that you are exactly good man and that
in future we will become close friends and maybe wonderful couple.
So now I would like to tell you about myself. I am siply Russian
girl, not differ from others. Maybe to discribe myself it could
be easyer if i do it for a first time. I did not hope that you will
answer me and when i saw your letter I got choked in my heart
and now i am sitting in front of computer and do not know what
to write you. I am sorry if there are a lot of mistakes in my
letter because i know English not very good. But I hope that you
will understand me and if you have some questions I will answer
them with pleaser.
Anyway it is time to say some words about myself.
My father died, when I was a child. It was an auto accident.
I miss him a lot!!!!Since 2 years old my mam grew and educated me alone,
It was very difficult for her and I love her very much.
And now she is the best friend for me.
I'm the only child in the family and I don't have any children, but I dream to have my own family,
children. My mum works in Cheboksary in the hospital as a medical sister.
I have never been married before and I have
no children. I am healthy woman and I do not smoke but sometime
I can offer myself to drink some good wine in good ocasions.
Most of all I like red wine. From food i like Chines food and
Russian food and I would like to teast Europian and West food.
I am not exactly that I want to have a child because i think
that first of all I want to find a man who will become my ideal
sexual partner and simply good friend for my heart.

So I was draduated from University and now I am working with
children at school.

By my charecter i am kind person and trying to enjoy everything
in my life and trying to distroy all diffuculties in my
So, lets go further. My friends say that i am attractive even
beautiful young woman. But unfortunately this fact didnt help me to
create my own family. Now i am sick and tired of my loneliness. I am
an openminded and communicative, but sometimes a little bit
shy, girl. Now i want to find that someone who can make all my dreams
come true. In my turn i would be very glad and happy to do the same
thing for my beloved man. So what do you think about it?
By the way, i like sport very much. I am not a
sportsman ofcoarse. Just inorder to be in good form. I visit the gym
three times a week. I like to swim in the swimming pool. But to tell
the truth, i am afraid of water. But try to overcome this fear.
Sometimes, not very often, I love dancing very much. I can't say that i like a particular
tipe of musik. It depends on my mood, what type of musik i would
like to listen to. But usually i am very busy to have some rest and
to do things i love to.
Well, what else? I even dont know what to tell more. In such case i
will finish my letter. I am waiting for
your reply! Good bye, my dear friend!!!!
If you can please send me your pictures.
I will be glad to get your letter and pictures.
I am sending you my smile to make you feel happy.
Your Natalia from Russia.

3rd mail
Hello dear Csuhi!!!
Hope you are fine?

I would like to tell you some things and please let me know what do you think about it. Okey?
I am looking for a serious relationship, somebody who can understand me and whom I can
I think relationship between man and women is most important, a man should always treat a
women nice and with love and respect, who stands by her in bad and good times and takes care
of all her necessities.
He should give her all the love he can so that she feels like the luckiest person on this
Similarly a women should do the same for man, to support him all the time, to be with him
when he needs her.
I think love is the key, a very important factor in a relationship and only way you can make
somebody love you if you are honest, sincere, faithful to that person.
I would like to tell you some words what i did today.
So Today I have carried out a lot of time at work with children.
It always something happens with them. Today one boy tried to kiss
the girl from the other group. But she for one year is more senior
than him and consequently has not given him
To kiss herself. he was upset very much!
So it is interesting to work with small children. They see in life only pleasures.
In their eyes it is possible to see a lot of happiness, even if the child
will make neasty things in a day.
I like to listen to Pop music and sometimes romantic classic music.
It would be desirable to dance, but simultaneously with a man.
But you see music in style POP always such.
Songs about love, but simultaneously with one who is in love something happens.
Well all right, I already something have too gone deep into this theme.
May be you are already bothered to read it.
My loved actress Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Most of all I like film with her participation
under the name ' I Know what you did last summer ';
You looked him? If yes, tell please that you think of this film?
I looked 2 more part of this film, but there any more there
was no my liked actress, this film not so that has liked me.
My favoirite actor is John Travolta.
I can talk about it indefinitely long, therefore I shall
not take away your time for reading my letter.
I shall wait for your letter.
Your friend Natalia

4th mail
Hello my dear Csuhi!!
It was pleasant for me to receive your letter today again.
How are you?
I looked much websites and I do not remember on what saw yours profile.
all is good here.
Nevertheless I want to tell in this letter slightly about that that like to eat and prepare
You know that I like to cook!!!
Everything I was learned from my mum.
I prepare almost everything. These are various soups, a ragout, pies, salads and many other things.
In the best way I like to cook our national Borsh
Have you evere heard about it?
I like to make pies that I usually I prepare them with a cherry and apricots.
Do You love pies? If yes, with what?
Still I adore ice-cream especially chocolate. And I am able to prepare for it.
I prefer our Russian kitchen.
As from the Italian kitchen I love pizza.

Have You ever tasted Russian dishe??? I'm sure there some Rusian restaurants in your country!!!
What food do you prefer, what cuisine?
In Russia there are a lot of usual products and unusual dishe, but i hear that foreigners always like russian food!!! There is are large variety of milk products: 'smetana',
and several types of milk products like yogurt,for example.
Smetana can be used with almost everything:
with the soup, with meat,
or strawberries and apples. It is also used with pancakes.
There is a great choice of soups and dessert dishes.
Russia is famous for red caviar, with pancakes usually .
it's very usuful for your health
As for cold dishes it's very tasty cold boiled pork with spices (buzhenina), jellied tongue,
meat jelly and horseradish sauce and various salads. I can cook all of them!!!
There are plenty of soups: cabbage soup, kidney and cucumber soup (rassolnik),
meat and fish salyanka, mushroom soup.
I should tell you that it is very pleasantly to read your letters.
In my life there was only one man who left me for a long time.
All over again he seemed to me that kind and attentive.
I trusted him and he deceived me all time.
he changed me to the other girl. And I had to forgive him.
It is difficult for me to speak about it but I simply wanted to say
you about it. I think that you can understand it.
So hope to hear you as soon as posible.
Your Russian friend Natalia.

5th mail
Hi, my dear friend Csuhi!!!
How is your mood?
Thanks for your photo you the very beautiful and attractive man
I am very happy, that I can write you
and I think that we can get know each other closer. As you
know, if you meet someone you must see, if everything beautiful in a
person - face, clothing, spirit and mind. As for me I judge not
by persons appearance. The most beautifull thing, which I like
in man is his spirit, not the face. I think that if the man has
nice spirit, he is the best man in the world. As for me I have
everything but not love that’s why I decided to write to you. I hope
that everything will be all right. And what do you think about it?
What can you say about your character? And what are the main
features of your character? As for me the most important thing when a
man understands me and my fillings. I think that we have similar ideas
and beliefs, attitudes and interests in common, if not, so I think
that it will not much time to reach this point. It seems to me that
you are a very good and interesting person, and I would like to know
you better. It is my first time when I use the Internet to get
acquainted with somebody. I know the English language not very well, but
I hope, that you can understand me and will help me to learn English.
However now I want to inform you about my city.
Cheboksary is an ancient city in Russia.
i like it very much, it's not so big as Moscow, for exaple, but it's very clean and smart. there are a lot of parks and churces, there are a lot to see and there a lot of tourists!!!! i think it's worth visiting!!!
Cheboksary is a capital of Chuvash Republic, it's anadministrative, economic and cultural center.
The population is about 750000 people.
Have you heard anything about my city?
by the way, my address: krasnoormeiskaya St, 144-18, Cheboksary, Chuvashia, Russian Federation.
i hope that it's really interesting for you to read my letters and i hope that we'l continue writing to each other!!!
Hope to hear from you very soon!!!
Take care,
Your Natalia.

Also I'm going to prepare a lot of documents and go to Moscow tomorrow.
One of my friends lives in Moscow and today i've called my friend
and she agreed me to stay at her place and she told me that she'll help me with the documents too!!!
We are friends since our childhood. But she entered the Moscow state University.

I shall write to you as soon as I arrive to Moscow.
I think that for my visa I will need your full address,
your full name and the closest airport where you will meet me.

2007-10-14, 11:45:59
Eddie from Sweden  
anonymous from Hungary, I wouldn't write to her any more either. Have you ever heard of a workplace with no telephone? LMAO

For any newcomers on this thread, who have googled their way here or whatever...


If several or more of the following criteria apply to your Boris (the beautiful Russian 'girl' that is supposedly writing to you), resist the temptation to help 'the poor girl' by sending her money. You're really writing to a sleazy guy sitting in a smoky room in Yoshtar Ola, Mari-El Republic, with a bunch of other sleazy guys spamming indiscriminately on laptops .

# '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 :). They might reply to your mails, but they rarely write first. It's the man who should do the chasing. 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, it's her dream to come to your country, 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). Think with your brain!
# 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 studio 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 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 desktop/laptop is very common.
# very long rambling/ecstatic form letters with a strange format, punctation and layout written in scamlish. (world's worst Babelfish copy)
# writes long letters everyday in English. How does she have time to write those long letters if she's working? (And if she doesn't have a job, how can she afford a computer + internet?) Most Russians outside Moscow can hardly speak a word of English anyway. And what's the point of finding a girl you can't communicate with, at least on a basic level? + 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. Russian TV is full of documentaries about Russian girls who have emigrated and got murdered, abandoned, etcetc.
# 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. 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.

I have been getting emails with identical and near-identical wording to the ones you show from Natalia Serapionova, right down to the 'fast visa'. My scammer is named Elena and her email is She wanted $600 to pay for a return ticket (she only had enough money for one-way, the story went). I was sceptical, but a woman left 2 cellphone messages, and emailed 4 photos, including a personalized photo, which I attach. I found your website in time.

Thanks so much for pubishing the emails. I found your site by googling the text from the phony email referring to the 'fast visa'.
