In short:

In January 14, 2010 Marina entered to the Croatian portal for connecting people called 'Iskrica (Sparky)' and found me. She sent me the first photo and own profile description, and began to write many warm and tender e-mails from the Internet cafe... Under the pretext that all Russian men are egoists, Marina wanted to come to me in Zagreb to marry and build a family with me. She have not money for tickets and visa, and I sent her the money with Western Union. At the Moscow airport, the police punish her with a large penalty of even 2600 euros, because she wanted to give me a valuable Russian icon. It should be a surprise gift when she comes to me. Then Marina says that she will be imprisoned, if she do not pay the penalty. She returns home and she wants of me the money. I do not more send the money, because I doubt in this story, especially when I have found this website ( I just now understand that I became a victim of organized crime.

In the meantime, I had sent her a birthday gift with express mail (EMS). The parcel is not delivered, because the address was incorrect (that street has only 40 houses), but Marina picked up that parcel in the postal office, probably with a fake passport.

Although Marina is mentioned that she has not the telephone, she has called me many times, allegedly from a public 'cable point of calls', but I discovered that she calls over the Russian mobile operators.

Hello my friend!!!!!! For me was pleasure to receive news from
you! How your day? I think well! I was good! At us today very awful
weather. In the street very coldly also is not present what sun. I
very much am interested in you. I search for serious attitudes what to
create strong, loving family. Today I send you 1 to a photo, I hope
beautiful truth. What can I tell more about myself directly? My age
29. Mine birthday 29.01. 1980. my growth 175. My weight 57. Hair -
The the light. I love a variety in appearance.
Eyes - brown. I have no children. I love a life. I like to
wake up in the mornings and to not know, that will present me new day.
I like to laugh and see when people are dared. I love sports. I two
times a week go to pool and I am engaged there. I like to travel,
though I never was abroad. Now I dream find the person with which I
can to construct family and to live together with him. The main thing,
that this person would understand me. Unless you do not think so? I
think, that the main thing in the person, that at him in soul, instead
of what it externally. I want, that the person was intellectual and
alive with sensation of humour. I think, that we have good chance to
know each other better... Winter my favourite season of year, I like
to look, how the nature comes to the senses after autumns. I love
snow. Snow it is fine entertainment for children. Children are the
future of our planet and on Them all our hope, they bring pleasure. I
believe, that the main love in my life will still arrive, the god will
help me with it. My favourite films now: 'Titanic' and 'Night patrol'.
I work from 8 mornings till 17 evenings every day except for Saturday
and revivals. During the lunchtime or after work I come in the
Internet of cafe. Also I write to you letters. I have not enough time
and means for entertainments, therefore I cannot allow me good rest.
Why I search for the person in more about me. Because here in Russia
all men egoists also do not care at all of women, can simply beat them
or humiliate. Please ask me that interests you. I shall answer your
questions. But if I shall not answer your questions do not take
offence. I it means cannot understand. As it is my first experience of
dialogue in the Internet. I write letters from the Internet of cafe
and he unfortunately sometimes happens is closed. I with impatience
shall look forward to hearing from you. With greetings from Russia

Marijo from Zagreb, Croatia/Hrvatska  
Below is the letter where I ask Marina about documents.
Although I already suspect in Marina's story, I continue to contact with her.
A week later, after some more letters,
she finally send me by e-mail the scanned fake documents
which I have already added in my previous comment + ++

My dearest Marina!!!

I am so glad that I have just received your new warm and tender letter.
This morning I was visited the state administration,
and I am so happy that I write this letter and inform you about good news.
I talked very much with my referent state officer about our case.
He is very friendly and polite person. I am confident that he will help us.
I am well surprised that I can talk with him so directly and openly.
He expressed a desire to help us in solving our problems as much as in his power.
He promised that through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and
the Russian Embassy in Zagreb will contact the police in Moscow
about the payment of your penalty, in the sense that in this way I pay the debt
directly from my bank account, what I totally agree.
My beautiful Marina, I hope that you also will be happy, as me.
This officer also says that he will do it very easily and fast,
without a problem, because of a well cooperation with the Russian Embassy.
He will insist through an effective diplomatic channel
to prove that was not any bad intentions from my and your side,
that the police in Moscow reduce the penalty, especially if it is your first penalty,
and that they even return back your valuable icon,
because it is your family heritage.

My dearest Marina, it would be good that you urgently send me
your scanned passport, concrete the page with your address and picture,
and the page with the 90-day visa, which you already have got in Moscow.
Also, it would be desirable that you send the police report, confirmation or
similar document which you have got as a clear evidence
that the police confiscated your valuable icon and set this high penalty.
If you can not scan these documents and send with e-mail,
then you can send them with fax directly from the postal office in Joshkar-Ola.
Sending a fax takes only 1-2 minutes and it will not cost so much.
