Valeria found my fake profile on Her message:

Hello Derrick! I am the one who is interested in having a good calm relationships with a man who is older and who is looking for a wife or life partner with same values and desires. I'm really looking for serious relationship, because it's so difficult to live without love, tenderness and care. Is it the same for you? I think that from now we have a chance to turn our life into better.
I have seen a lot of different men on this site and your profile seemed me the most interesting. I know that you are 48 y.o. I am 29. I hope it is ok for you. I have tried to find some more information about Maastricht. As your profile told, you are Teacher. Is it interesting? I should say that I liked everything I have seen.

I would like to continue our acquaintance. Write me please to my E-mail lera.neferty AT g m a i l . c o m


Valeria's first letter:

Onderwerp: It's me - Valeria!Hi!

Dear Dirk, hi!

I am very glad to find the letter from you in my mail-box. I feel
praised that such a nice man is writing to me. From the very beginning
I want to tell you that I have a child - a son of 4 years old. He is a
nice angel, but I've wanted you to know it in order not to have any
misunderstandings. I really love kids and want to have more with a man
who will become my life partner or husband...

As you already know my name is Valeria but my friends and relatives
call me Lera for short. I am 29 years old and my birthday is on
May,10. I live in the city Simferopol, it is very famous in Ukraine as
when all the people are going to the seaside they pass my city. It is
the capital of Crimea. Unfortunately there is no sea here but it is
not far.

I have graduated from a Pedagogical University and I am working as a
teacher of Ukrainian language and literature. I like my profession
though it is not very well-paid and difficult but I can't change it as
I can't imagine myself without those happy eyes who are looking at me
every day at the lessons.

No I didn't forget to tell you more about my husband and the matter of
divorce, I just don't want you to be tired of my stories and will tell
you about it in my next letter. Well, I think that will be all for the
first time and I will get it sent to you now. I'll be looking forward
to getting your reply.

Please, write me about your life, job, family and friends. You
probably would be interested: why a woman of my age is searching her
love through the net? I am a grown-up, but in my heart I am still a
19-years old girl who believes in love stories and who still hopes to
find her fate. I was trying to find my love here in Ukraine, but it
didn't work out. I have read in a magazine that there is a such thing
like net meeting of people, and thought why not to try? So as you see
I did try and hope that it will help me to meet the right person to be
a good husband for me and a good father for my son.

Oh, you may be tired enough while reading my long letter. So, that is
all for this letter. I hope to know something about you in response.
Let me become closer to you, if you don't mind...

Best wishes.
Yours, Lera.

It's a translation scam.

Hello my dear Dirk!

Thank you for writing to me again and for your sincere interest in me.
I feel special knowing that such a great man is communicating with me.
It is really nice that we have a chance to communicate with you even
living hundreds of kilometers away from each other... I truly hope
that our Internet dating or how you can call this way of communication
will lead us to a happy end.

If you remember, in my last letter i have promised to tell you about
my husband and the reason for our divorce. May be my story will be in
dark colors, but I can't tell it in another way, and soon you will
understand why. I got married to a man I fall in love with from the
first sight. But how I figured later he didn't love me so much as I
did or didn't love me at all. We were living happily just after
marriage, but it didn't last long. Some time later my husband started
drinking alcohol, and found his pleasure in it. He cheated on me and I
knew that- it's a common thing for military people here (I mean
drinking and cheating). I knew what was happening but was still hoping
to make him his bad habits, when I talked to him about it - he had
beaten me up. It was awful, I couldn't go anywhere because I was
ashamed to leave my house with such face as I had. My sister got to
know about it- she was trying to persuade me to leave my husband, but
I didn't listen. I loved him, and I wanted my son to have Dad. May be
bad one, but for the child it means a lot. Time passed, nothing has
changed, his conduct became more gross - he began to beat me black and
blue, one time he had beaten me so bad, I was within an inch from the
death. After this I decided to divorce him - for my self and for the
son - I didn't want him to see me beaten. Now I'm alone and live with
my son. I love him. She is the aim of my life and I devote him all my
time. But I am a woman, a human being that's why I need a strong and
at the same time gentle, honest, sincere, clever, kind man, who will
care for me and my small kid. I still want to find a man to share my
happiness and sadness, my love and my life.

Sorry, if my story made you sad, but our life is not always a good
story with a happy end, for which we are all hoping. If you feel that
you are the man I am searching write me back. And you will find a
tender, kind, loving woman who wants to make someone's life happier.

Would you like to know the main reason for my searching in the net? A
best friend of mine now prepare all the documentary to relocate to her
beloved. I couldn't believe at first that she does find her future, so
she almost forced me to do the same and now I'm here looking for my
soul and use that agency, she used. I don't know English and they help
me with translation and computer, hope it's ok for you.

Looking forward for your answer.

Onderwerp: To my dear friend!

Hello my dear Dirk!

I was waiting your reply with impatience. I hope our correspondence
will lead to good relations as friendship or even love. I am searching
for a beloved one - hope you too...

I appreciate you for your understanding and for your countenance, it's
very important for me. I think that all our troubles make us more
strong. Sometimes I appreciate my experience. I see that you are
splendid man and I'm sure that your woman will be happiest woman in
the world. I would like to be your ideal woman.

I don't need an ideal, I need caring, loving, tender and faithful man
and you know, I'm ready to follow him, even if I should go to the end
of the earth. I know I'll be happy with him anywhere!

I just want to tell you about my dreams and thoughts... I think, that
the best wife is not only the best lover but the one, whom you can
trust, whom you can give a big part of your soul, and be sure she
would give you a part of hers. It is very hard to find nowadays that
kind of woman...I am really hoping that I am that type of woman for
you... your dreams are my dreams. I dream to wake up every morning,
feeling you breathing behind me, feeling tender touch of your lips
,saying GOOD MORNING to each other. I dream to begin every new day
like this!

I am sorry that my last letter was so sad. I think that we should
leave bad thoughts and memories in past and just move on. Because the
world is full of joy and happiness - you need just to find it. Some
people find their happiness and joy in family, or work, in friends and
noisy companies, others find it in their kids or pets. It's just about
me. When I was despaired and lonely, I had only one creature who made
me feel alive and made me go was my son. He is a nice boy. His
name's Danil, I call him Danya. He is energetic and smart boy. May be
it sounds too selfish, but he is the best boy I have ever seen. I want
him to be happy and I will do everything to give him good education
and upbringing.

About my interests - I like reading love stories with happy ends. I am
a little bit romantic, like all women are. I like Alexander Dumas and
Leo Tolstoy. I like poems of our Russian and Ukrainian authors. I am
pretty busy and can't do all the things I wish to do, but I am also
interested in sports - I like figure skating and volley ball. But I
just watch them on TV.

I like to watch good movies at home or cinema. And I wish I could do
it with a beloved men, pure a glass of wine and suit closely to each
other, maybe hugging...I wish I could have a fireplace at the dinning
room to watch the wood burning and feeling its warmness on my face...
I like to swim in summertime and have long walks during winter.
Sometimes I can let myself play snow balls with my son and have fun
playing with him.

I am waiting on your letter to come soon. I am looking forward on
meeting with you someday...

Onderwerp: I am thinking about you!

Hello my dear Dirk!

Thank you for your inexhaustible interest in me. Frankly speaking,
it's so pity that your letter is so short and I have known almost
nothing about you. I really want to know you better and I hope in the
next time you will tell me something from your life's story.

You know yesterday I went to the park with my son - we were walking
along the alleys, and I thought how wonderful it could be if I met a
man who will love me and take care of him. I was very much surprised
but he told me that he will be really happy to have his own Daddy, as
other kids do - he told me that he will love him and will obey his
rules. Danya said that he wants his Daddy to come to his room every
night to say good night and he will hug him and will listen to the
fairy tales he will tell him. I want you to know that I believed that
I found such a man and I think it's you - you can be just such a man
who will love me and my son?

Mt Darling, Dirk!

Thanks you so much for your letter. Each one lights a fire in my heart
and keeps me hoping that our meeting will be soon. I miss being with
you so much and I think also that your house is so empty without a
woman to add to the beauty. Please hurry to my side!

The weather is very nice here today. It seems like a spring is coming.
The sun is shining so brightly.

How are you doing inside right now? Are you doing ok? There are times
when it is not easy dating someone this way.

I got home today and a friend came to me she is going through an
extremely difficult time, she is trying to leave someone and move to
Russia and her life is coming apart and she is not sure if she wants
to continue living or not, I have been helping her to keep going. I do
not want to go back and relive what I have walked through over the
last years, but it has given me a very real ability to connect with
people and to help them through their crisis.

You know, dear, happiness comes from what we are doing and feeling. I
feel that you and I would get along together wonderfully, that we
would never argue, never offend. I know we might disagree, but I think
we would have a beautiful, loving relationship. I feel your gentleness
very much, and I love it. And I know that I would always try so hard
to care about your feelings, to make you feel loved and appreciated
and needed and cherished. I would care very much for your happiness,
and never take advantage of your gentleness.

Dear, I am not sure when I will be able to write you next time. I want
you to know that I'll be thinking of you all the time and missing you.

Yours Now and Always,
Forever in Love with you,

Onderwerp: For the nice man!

Hello my wonderful Dirk!

I think it's great when two persons enjoy communication with each
other and in that way fill their life of positive emotions!

You know, today when I was going to the agency to read your letter, a
stranger has stuck to me. He has tried to make me many rough
compliments. But I have told him that my heart is already occupied by
a wonderful man and finally he has left me alone.

Honey, I have told him the truth. You have entirely occupied not only
my heart, but also my mind. I awake in the morning and I'm thinking
about you, I go to the bed in the evening, and I'm thinking about you.
You know, now I understand that I have never felt the real happiness
before. You have winged me. I feel myself so easily and quietly and it
seems there are no problems and worries. You have brought a balance in
my life and it seems it was no disappointments, no troubles before.
Thank you for tearing me the way, what you do!

I have completely opened to you and this is for the first time when
I'm not afraid to be hurt. I believe and trust you. Now you know, I
have presented you the most dear what I have, my heart. I'm sure you
will care about it, because such men like you are made to love and to
be loved. Thank you for your coming into my life! You can't even
imagine how long I was waiting for you, my beloved.

We heard yesterday some very bad news in our family. Yesterday they
taken up my grandma in hospital. She had problems to breath and had
pain by her heart. She is 88 years old and every day can be the last.
She every time called my name so I think that I have to visit her this
week. She will have to stay in the hospital for at least one week
because they try some medicine to her. My dear, the children at school
are having spring holiday and I have some free time. So on Thursday
Danya and I will go to the village where my Granny lives. It is 300 km
from my city and I think we will have to stay there for a week. I will
come back on April,5. My dear Dirk, I hope it is ok for you and you
will wait a bit for me. I am sorry but I won't be able to write you
letters during this period of time as there is no Internet connection
there. I will be missing you. But I think that we have to go there.

With all my heart,
your Lera.

P.S. Ya tebya Lublu! - it means I love you! in Russian:)
