The second letter:
Hello!!! Its Syuzanna writing to you! I decided to send you more info about me.
It is my first time I try to correspondence with man in internet world.
I do hope you will be enough patient to understand my writing.
I want you to know that I have only good intentions and I don`t have big secrets.
The thing is that I will work abroad for three months or so and I would like to meet a nice man to
be my guide or just be good friend to spend time with.I think that it is hard enough to live in foreign town
without friends and also I have never been abroad. I am from so small town here in Russia,I am afraid to be lost.
I want to see real life and it is impossible to see without
person who knows all sides of the life. It doesn`t matter what age is he or what is his eyes
color, I just want to know that he is kind and open-hearted inside.
I don't want to live in Russia because I have not any chances here,it
is hardly possible to explain it by the first time but I want you to know my plans.
In Russia many young girls also want to start a new life abroad, so many of them
used a special program 'Work and travel' for young people who wants to work abroad.
I also decided to do so and to use it. This program just helps to register documents and gives
suitable work in your area. I already started to register
documents and now I need to decide in which city I want to work.
I`m 26 years old and I`m not afraid of work (I will work as a dance teacher).
You know, I`m a professional dancer, I dance in group on festivals, wedding celebrations etc.
But when I will arrive (I will travel alone) I will work as a dance teacher (instructor), I have an international certificate.
I think it is the right way for me, I am lost here, and I think that I look pretty enough to find a better place.
I never been abroad so I decided to find a friend abroad and make his city to be my destination.
I want to repeat the same way,it is my only chance to change my life. I am full of plans and different dreams.
My hair is blonde and I have green-grey eyes. I think I look very good, but first of all I want to be beautiful inside.
I do hope that you will be not disappointed to meet me in the real life if we will meet.
Well,I will close this letter and I do hope to get your reply.
I will leave my town in a few days or so (I can't tell you everything exactly right now) and I would like to
be sure that I have a man who waits for me there. I will work all day and I would like to find a
man to spend all free time together to get to know each other better.
if you have any interest to meet me I will be more than happy to meet you too.
My be it sounds silly but I just don't want to be alone in the evenings,and I want to be sure
in advance that somebody waits for me!
I think that my e-mail starts to be too long so I will tell you all details about me and my life
that you would like to know in next e-mails! Today I send you more photos.
You know, my mum likes to make my photos, because she thinks that I look very good on it!
I hope we will like each other and will be able to meet!

With best regards Syuzanna (Or Syu for short)

Stay alert!

Below is an article about Yoshkar Ola scammers, found on the Russian internet. The article was obviously in Russian, sorry for the somewhat lousy translation.


'to do Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V'. -- the most popular joke in the recently held Yoshkar Ola comedy stage show. This year, jokes about scammers are very popular. Students are drumming and singing about the boy who loved money very much, and another boy marches across the scene with a poster 'I love Western Union'. The audience laughs hard, everybody understands. Because for the Yoshkar Ola students the question 'what does scammer mean' is not an issue, everyone is familiar with it, everyone knows what it means.

'Hello, my name Elena. I read about you in your profile. You are very interesting to me. I want to get aquainted with you. Write me, I shall wait'. All customers of the English dating sites periodically get such messages. And very soon any interested American, Canadian, British or a citizen of any other country learns that far away, in a Russian suburb lives Lena, who has dreamt about him all her life. Then our 'prince on the white horse' learns that it is love, and it was sent to him by God. And maybe (why not believe in destiny?) a gullible foreigner will send to a Russian princess a couple of thousand dollars or a ticket to be with him the rest of their lives together. In the end, he will learn that the girl 'Lena' is actually a 'fat Boris', but chances are, he will still hate the heartless Russian women.

You will not find any modern Russian dictionary giving the explanation of the word 'scammer', except for maybe English-Russian dictionary. In English, word 'scam' means fraud, but in Russian it has a narrower meaning: the fraud on the Internet dating websites. A scammer, respectively, is the same 'fat Boris' who pretends to be a girl, starts an Internet romance, and then requests money. The scamming in Russian has another, more colorful and patriotic name: 'to take the rich'. Indeed, why not 'take the rich', make them share their money. This even sounds like a fair deal, the weak takes from strong, poor from rich. This should calm the conscience of scammers, as we were told, they don't sleep good.

From all types of online fraud, scamming stands out because it is the easiest one to put on the conveyor. It is the real production process, where everything is divided into stages. To minimize the time and effort, the whole process has been systemized a long time ago. In the early stages, thinking is not necessary, you simply need to work hard. Usually, the scammer receives his first money after two months, this time frame should allow acquaintance, friendship, love and the desire to meet in person, unfortunately unrealistic. After establishing another faceless mailbox like 'ElenochkaForYou@....' or 'Natasha547@....' and registering on the dating sites, starts the most boring part for scammers - 'zakidka'. This is exactly what the above-mentioned comedy show meant by 'to do Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V'.

On the dating sites scammers start by looking for suitable candidates to scam. First, they select the country (usually USA), then the region or state, and make sure they do not interfere with a colleague, so they don't pick the same victims. The main parameters: male; between the ages of 27 to 50 years; race - all, except blacks (the scammers say that blacks will most likely take you, instead of you taking them). All letters, including the first introductory ones, are pre-written long time ago, and you don't have to think about anything, just do: 'Ctrl-C' (copy), 'Ctrl-V' (insert), and the letter are sent. 'After the overnight monotony work doing Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V, you become totally dumb and tired' - Andrei, who will soon have to do it for several nights in a row, shares his story, 'this is the most boring work, the most interesting part comes later'.

But the truth is, the further it goes, more sad it gets. With each new template and each new photo it involves you more and more. After the fourth template 'half of the rich' are gone: some don't like the girl, some are not looking for anything serious, but most are simply afraid to deal with Russia. At the end, the most desperate and naive remain. Or maybe it is more pleasant to say 'stupid'? Stupid and rich - this way you don't feel a pity for them. 'I simply don't get it, how can they meet somebody on the Internet and accept anything?', says Andrei, although he's been scamming for more than a year, he still doesn't understand this.

Those few foreigners who really want to find their love online, in the approximately seventh letter learn that they have found it, although they themselves are really the ones who have been found by scammers. Scammers proclaim their love, and do it naturally and fast (because their conveyor cannot wait). Next, depending on the reaction, 'the girl' immediately or little bit later requests money for a visa, tickets, or both.

'Sure, I am sorry for them', says Andrei, but refuses to talk more on the subject.
'This month I earned 15 thousand rubles, and two months ago only four' - Kolya believes that scamming is a real job, and for the provincial student it is a large amount of money. His office pays scammers 20% of received money, in many other offices they pay only 15%. 'We used to have a guy in our office, to whom one American during three months sent more than twelve thousand dollars'. According to Kolya, how much you earn, depends half on hard work and half on luck. But not everyone can force the American lover to send more and more - you need a good imagination. You have to invent reasons why his sweetheart cannot fly to him: she's been robbed in the subway, her mother is sick, she has been accused of withholding taxes and put in prison, and he has to send money for bail. 'Very popular is a story that she accidentally broke the expensive antique vase in a museum and should pay back 3000$', laughs

Just like love, the desire to send more and more money has to be developed. To begin with, a foreigner is asked to send only $300 for visa. If he sends it, later it will be harder for him to reject the idea that his princess will fly to him, but will be much easier to send more money, because the barrier of mistrust has been broken already. Next, the amount of $1,400 for a ticket. The development of events is determined by a scammer's skills in brainwashing. There are many half-myths which circulate among scammers, how someone took one American for 40 thousand dollars in one month, that another American robbed his own company to get the money, and a really crazy one got heavily in debt, got fired from work, refinanced his house and sold his kidney for the non-existent sweetheart. Indeed some people still have faith in 'the humble Russian girl Lena', which turns into an obsession, and they are ready to go bankrupt for her: this is a big luck for scammers and they live off it.

Who is this femme fatale? The whole point is that this girl does not exist, she is created by the joint efforts of a scammer and a victim who sets the direction. While similarities do exist: she is usually between 25 and 30 years old, beautiful and smart, looking for a serious relationship. Men from Russia don't suit her because they are rude and drink too much. She believes in God and loves the most popular movies and music, uses a dating site for the first time, and always uses the Internet cafes. 'It is very important that the girl looks natural, so they believe in it. Not a supermodel, but good-looking', explains Kolya. Almost all photos are stolen from the Internet, so the real girls are completely unaware that they are indirectly helping to scam foreigners. The site has a big collection of Russian women gathered from scammed men from all over the world, the so-called 'black list'. Sometimes there might be a very unexpected picture. A real girl called Elvira accidentally discovered her photographs and personal details there: 'one friend of mine wanted to prove to me how much scamming is developed in Russia, and entered my data, it turned out that I was on all scamlists for a long time'. Most photos are simply stolen by scammers from the girls' personal pages and blogs, and if you check, the 'black lists' are also full with pictures of Alsu, Valeria and many other Russian celebrities.

According to the old-time scammers there are almost 300 offices in Yoshkar Ola (other estimates give the number of 500). Each office has five working scammers, and there are also girls who pick up money. Of course, there are no statistics, and the situation is estimated by eye, but if it is true, 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 easy recognizable. In Yoshkar Ola, the capital of Mari El and concurrently 'the capital of Russian scammers', all scammers recognize each other. 'Yes, it is true, our city is the capital of scammers', Andrei says with some pride, he recently got a transfer of $1,000, and is in a good mood today, 'other cities have some scammers too, but we have more. There are so many scammers in our city that is almost a legitimate business.'

'I will rent my apartment to scammers', says the elderly lady Olga Mihailovna, housewife, 'they are nice guys and always pay good rent'. 'In the office where I used to work, if we earned 20,000 dollars per month, the owners would pay us bonus, but some offices may earn 30,000 dollars or more per month' says Andrei. Good office earns about 15,000 dollars per month. Accordingly, the annual income of an office is about 200,000 dollars. And if it is true that Yoshkar Ola has 300 offices the annual income of Yoshkar Ola is sixty million dollars.

Nevertheless, scamming never became the official national business of Yoshkar Ola. The authorities recently closed several offices: they turned off the lights in the entire house, and when scammers got out to see what's going on (they need electricity to work!), cops broke into the apartments, arrested everybody and sealed the apartments. After that, the city became quiet for some time. Sure, during this period of time many foreigners wondered why their 'love' doesn't write to them. But just two weeks later everybody returned back to their offices. There is enough work for both: scammers scamming, and law enforcement agencies catching them red handed from time to time.
