Got her of different scammers site .
Dear Pete! It's great to receive letters from you. In my opinion, your
name is beautiful! I am very glad, that you have written to me. I
would like to begin correspondence with you by e-mail, to speak with
you on the phone and I think, we can meet in the near future. Please,
excuse me that I did not answer you some time after the first message.
Simply at me the Internet was gone and only today the master has made,
that all worked. I hope, that you will strongly not be angry with me.
Pete large thanks for sending to me your nice photo. On my sight you
have very attractive appearance! You the beautiful man. I write you
the truth, and you do not think what is it flattery. I think, that
yours beautiful face corresponds to your warm soul.
Such is destiny, but I am lonely at the moment. And I have decided to
join dating on the Internet, i wish to meet the man I will love and
who will love me. I wish to find the man with whom I shall have
harmony in many aspects of the life. I do not like to speak much about
myself. But if you will ask me questions, I shall answer you
sincerely. I do hope that your heart is open for new friends, because
my heart is really open, and I'll be glad to talk to you Pete. I know
that right now I must write at least the most important things about
myself. And I should admit that I feel uncertainty because I want to
find the friend very much, but my desire is diluted with absence of
any experience in dialogue via Internet. But I am sure that time will
help me and you, if you feel the same. As you already know, my name is
Ira. And I am Russian woman. To be honest, I was afraid that you will
not write to me, being disappointed in my nationality and the
residence. And if you think that cultural differences are the obstacle
for friendship; if my nationality has saddened you; if the distance
for you is the main thing in a friendship and relations, I'll try to
understand you. But I sincerely think that for friendship there are no
borders and distances. That is why I want to communicate with you, and
I sincerely hope that you will be glad to have the female friend from
Russia too. In my profile I wrote, that I am from USA. Actually the
most part of my life I lived in Russia. About one year ago I have
moved to Germany for improvement of professional skill. In some days I
will return home to my native city Pskov. I studied at the Pskov
university for 5 years and upon termination of training i have
suggested to pass training in Germany. Now I am at Berlin and in May I
have graduated a courses of the insurance agent. Iím very sorry, that
I do not live in your country. You know, I would like to walk with you
on the streets of your city, to talk on various themes, spend time
being engaged in interesting and amusing things. Now we are divided by
a lot of miles, but our meeting is possible. Next month I shall visit
your country under the international program of an exchange of
employees. Excuse me that I have desinformed you writing in my
profile, that I live in the USA. I could not register on American
dating site having specified, that I live in Russia or Germany. I do
not know the reasons why I could not make it. I have started to
legalize papers wich are necessary for arrival to your country. And
next month we can meet. I have attached my photos to this letter. Pete
I hope that you will like my photos, and will be interested in me

So far she has not asked me for any money. While many of her comments are the same, others are very personal. I repeatedly include loaded questions or statements in my correspondence, yet the answers never indicate that she really read my answering letter all the way. I have recieved the same photo's and even have a new on with this supposed 'brother.' Corrospondance has only been for one month. My main issue has been with just how she found me on the yahoos personals site. It looks as if she hacked the site, or knew how to get what she wanted. I am having trouble treating this as a scam, as for the fact that she has asked for no money and seems to have her own connections. I do find it strange that her mention of obtaining a Visa has bounced from within a week, to sometime near July, to any point in between. She does'nt even take offense when I mentioned that my brother in law bet me 5 dollars that she was a 400 pound sow that could eat corn on the cob through a picket fence.

As far as scams go, just what is she doing that I should be wary of, or is this site just a by product of some myron who got rejected and is trying to make himself feel better?

What's the deal? Has she ripped anyone off or what? She seems pretty genuine. I met her through yahoo personals. I don't know how she was able to send me a message unless she is using a borrowed membership account. I have 3 more pictures dating into November, but am hesitant to post them in case she is for real, I don't want to hurt her feelings. I am still skeptical as hell, don't get me wrong, and I read where a Scam Ring was denied Internet Provider Service. Could it be that this 'Ira' could be a victim of a scam service that links Russian girls to hard to find American men?

That is something to think about. This girl has done nothing malicious to me so far.

Hello my dear friend Pete. I was very glad to see your answer to my
letter; it has brightened my day and mood. I hope that you are doing
well and believe in the further development of our relations. Of
course at the moment thousands of km separate us but we should believe
for the better, right now our letters are the only way that unit us.
Do you agree? Letter by letter, step by step we will get to know each
other as much as possible. Only if we are sincere, open and honest
towards each other we will be able to create strong relations built
upon love, respect and mutual understanding. We should not scare to
tell each other about our dreams. What do you think? I want us to
become good friends too and hope it will lead to a wonderful
relationship. I hope, that you are serious about starting a good
relationship and that we have the same goal. I am sorry about my late
answer. Simply from Berlin I have arrived to Moscow. In Moscow I had
to be late on the night because there was no flight to Pskov at night.
I have arrived to Moscow at late evening. And when has left the
airport there was a night. I have gone by a taxi to hotel. And as I
have come to number I at once have fallen asleep for weariness. From
Moscow I travelled to Pskov by the bus. And when I went, I much
thinking about you Pete. I reflected on our correspondence. And I very
much wished to write to you letter. I wished to communicate with you.
I very much wished to see your letter to me. When I have arrived to
the native city, I was met my brother. It has presented me very
beautiful flowers. I was very glad to our meeting, because we not saw
very much for a long time. My travel has borrowed a lot of time and
consequently I could not write to you earlier. I promise that I will
try to write you often, and I hope that our dialogue becomes better. I
wish to tell you thanks for attention which you have given me, having
answered my letters.
Allow I tell a little about my brother and its family. He has small
business, and plans to create the Internet shop. By the way, some
months back my brother has begun some business in the USA. This
business is connected with development program maintenance for some
enterprises. In the USA my brother has the partner who searches to my
brother for orders. The partner agrees with the enterprises and
delivers work to my brother to Russia. My brother very good person. It
helped me with a life much. It has very good wife and the beautiful
daughter. I am very happy for it. It has really met the happiness and
pleasure in this life. I hope, that I also shall necessarily meet the
love. If you decide to visit me in Russia in future you will be always
the welcome guest. I will be happy to acquaint you with my the brother
and it family if you decide to visit me. I'm fine. I am very glad,
that I at home. The truth not so pleases me weather in the street. We
have cold and crude weather now. Today there was a a rain in the
morning a little. You have what weather? Tomorrow or the day after
tomorrow I shall go to office of my works and I shall learn from them
the information concerning my travel to the your country for work. I
hope, that you will read my letter with interest. My biggest wish and
dream is to find my second half, to become a part of him, to take care
of him and devote him all my attention, my love and my heart. It will
be interesting me to find out more about your daily life. Pete with
this letter I send you a photo. On these photos I with my brother. We
have made this photo today. I hope, that you will like my photo. I
hope, that you will write to me very soon. I shall wait your answer
with greater impatience. Ira.

That's really strange Pete, the exact same letter was sent to me last month. Either she is doing a re-make of the movie 'Groundhog Day' or this is actually the work of a sophisticated Bot. If all goes according to plan, you should recieve a letter with 3 more pictures and details of a trip to the 'Summer House' adventures of picking mushrooms and some fish. There is also a cute one of her by a fireplace. What is amazing is that she goes forwards and backwards in time in the photo's. One even had the date 2003 on it in the upper right. I would say it was shot with a Vivitar camera. The photo taken lying back with her brother where she is wearing the blue turtleneck is the absolute lastest that I know of. Also the IP carrier address changed by 2 digits. I used to end 248, and the last letter came from 250, if that means anything.

My beautiful Pete. I was very happy to get your letter. Please do not
take offence at me, when I do not answer on your letters soon. I never
forget you and each day I think that it is very fast we with you can
meet. Yes I understand that we with you are divided by thousand miles.
But I think that soon I can overcome this large distance and meet you.
You sincerely concern to our relations and very much care of me. Today
I again read all your letters, and I would like to thank you for your
warm relation to me.
Pete for me it was valid to read very happily that you would like to
spend weekends together with me. I hope, that we can spend weekends
very soon. I would be very glad to spend with you time. I hope, that I
can travel to you very soon and then we can spend many time with each
other. Many thanks to you that you have informed me the name of the
airport where I will need to travel. I understand that I should take
the ticket up to Toronto International Airport. Many thanks to you
that you are going to meet me, when I shall arrive to you. I hope,
that it will be very fast. I so am glad, that you never get tired to
read my greater letters to you. I hope, that you also will not get
tired at personal meeting with me when we shall be together. For me
there was such big happiness to read that when I shall arrive to
Canada, you will meet me with flowers. It so is happy for me. I think,
that it will be simply unforgettable day for me. I very much wish to
meet you soon. I very much hope, that my brother can give me money
very soon. As soon as it will give me money from its business, I shall
travel at once to you.
Today i was talking a lot with my brother about you. I was telling him
about you as a very nice person. My brother is very glad that i have
met a very good man and he is glad to hear that we are going to meet
with you soon. My brother is sure that you are a decent person and he
wishes us all the happiness in our relations. He always tries to
support me and always wished me the happiness. He sends his best
regards to you, dear Pete!
I have been to the tourist agency today and found out the results
about my viza. I was informed that my job viza is ready. I'm so glad
about it. So, i can travel to you dear very soon. The contract with
the agency says that i must be in the Canada by the in January. And, i
suppose, i will start working from the January, after providing a
habitation for me. At the moment, i'm not sure about the date for
booking air tickets. I have money for tickets, so it's not a problem
for me. As soon as i arrived in Russia, i saved the money for
purchasing an air tickets. My brother told me that he will give me the
money for living in the Canada. His business in USA is giving him
profits. So, after receiving money from USA he will give me the
necessary sum. I appreciate his help very much. I am really very
grateful to it that it will give me money for my travel to your
country. It always helped me. I think that as soon it will receive its
money, as i will travel to Canada we will meet each other. I hope,
that my brother will receive money from its business very soon because
I very much wish to fly to you. I want to meet you very much. Pete do
you want to see me soon?
How are you? Weather in my city warm. What season is pleasant to you?
My favourite season autumn. I find trees beautiful in autumn. I feel
romantic. Autumn reminds me of my childhood. When I was a child we
were grabbing leaves and throwing them in the air. We were laughing as
they were falling down to our heads. I felt so happy. Probably I
should try doing it once, would you like to do it with me? It would be
fun you chase me down and throw in a pile of leaves then jump in and
roll around together. Maybe we would sneak a kiss and not want to get
:) up. How things are doing with you? How is your work? I hope you are
still interested in our correspondence and development of further
relations, are not you? Pete remember please, that there is a woman in
Russia, which thinks of you. I will be waiting for your soon reply
impatiently. Ira.

Hello All of Ira's Friends,
My correspondance with her has gone on now for three months.... also saying she is coming, waiting on money... only to me she says it is coming from 'boyfriend my sister' who are supposedly in Cyprus, ..She has sent many photos ... I have been asked by her to recieve a check and send her cash via Western Union, it bounced like high quality rubber, Then she actually internet wired $8500 to a bank account I set up for the purpose... I was supposed to send the money to in two ways, half Western Union and half money gram. The kicker is the money has to be returned to the bank of origin upon request... This is federal banking law... then my bank would have demanded it ($8500) from me.
I did not send the money to her as requested... I (my bank) sent it back to the bank of origin (First Bank, Colorado)
There is no doubt that I have been writting a pro-dating scammer... She called herself Iraida Yashmetova.
Be very careful Guys... Play along with her and see what developes...You'll see in time... She is convincing.
