I had a profile posted on an American dating web site and a female from my area answered me.
Her letter was a few lines long, in good English and she seemed honest and cute, so I replied.
The letter said she had a read-only trial account and would not be able to receive messages,
so she included a yahoo email address. She asked me to write to this yahoo email address.
I did this and a few days later her trial account was gone, she explained that she deleted
it because she found me. (that is what she answered, when I asked her about it)
This girl claimed to live in Kazan, Tartastan, 26 years old and called herself Barbi.
There was something suspicious about her letters, in particular I always had the
impression that she did not really read mine every time. Sometimes she wrote
personal, matching replies, then sometimes not. her photos of which she sent
about 25 so far, had number like 5.jpg, 6.jpg, 35.jpg etc.
Yesterday I did a query for some phrases of some of her emails and found them
posted on 2 other web sites. Apparently she wrote identical letters to other guys
using different names and different pictures. She or he asked those guys for money,
supposedly for tickets or visa paperwork. I guess I am lucky that she never asked
me for any money. However, I felt fooled when I saw "my" emails had also been
sent in parts to other guys.
For that reason I will post her here letters. I know that parts of these letters
have been posted on 2 other sites, but not all.
I include the full headers in the first email. The sender comes from a russian
dial-up but in another email I sent her a URL to one of my web sites and apparantly
"she" uses some sort of satellite DSL for the downstream, the IP number was
84.xx (to be filled in later).

To learn each other. I for the first time have acquaintance through

the mature man, which would be to wise and scientific life. I like the
men which is more senior than me and can learn me to something in this
short life. I to want to connect destiny with the man of such age as
you. I think, that you read my structure and could see there, that I
haves serious intentions to get acquainted with the good person for
relations . I shall try to tell a little about my character. I do not
know as it to start, I think, that I very romantic person. I like to
communicate with people, it is pleasant to me Good humour. I very much
appreciate such qualities in people, as fidelity and honesty. I
believe in love, and I think it very valuable thing which needs to be
protected. I very much The jealous person. I adore, when to me pay
compliments and is ready to listen to them indefinitely. For me it is
necessary, that around of me there was a cleanliness and the order, I
frequently am engaged cleaning. Also to me to like to prepare for a
meal, various tasty things. It is pleasant to me romantic relations
between the man and The woman, but probably all women dream to get
acquainted with good The person to have with him beautiful romantic
relations. But frequently such things come to an end Very quickly. I
have no intention to spend myself on such acquaintances. While I have
not met In the life of such person to which I would decide to give
myself and the life. But me it would be desirable to find such person.
I think, that for the woman the main thing to have in a life not
Career or other success, and strong family and the favourite person
beside what to care of him. Tell please, you dream to meet what woman
in the life? Excuse Peter, that I ask you to discuss such frank thing
with The person whom you know couple of days. But it is interesting to
me to know It about you. I shall wait for yours e-mail. Yours
Hi , I was sad that you do not write me and do not answer on my
letters. There can be I you than that has offended or you simply play
with me in games? I wait from you of the answer. Yours Barbi.
At that point I had started to ignore her because her letters were ridiculous, not reflecting what I had written.
However, things picked up then again..
Tanya, Elena, Irina, ...
hard to believe these women don't
have a boy friend or husband,
and you have to ask behind
their complaints over russian men,
which allways appear in their letters.
You may guess there are enough male in
this country which are easier to figure out
for russian girls
than any strange guy abroad.

Hi to the German who posted the above comments!
I recently saw a t.v. show 'Dom Jolley's Happy Hour' which featured an episode from Russia where they had an interpreter who showed them around St. Petersberg.
They noticed a wedding party and commented on the couple that the man was a skinny geeky looking guy and the girl was a tall beautiful woman!
The interpreter explained that due to the number of wars that Russia has been involved in over the years, a lot of the strong, brave, fit men were killed so there are lots of girls for less eligible men over there.
Oh and they showed some of the men who the girls are always complaining about lying drunk in the street on vodka!?
But on the other hand there are prosperous areas and rich people over there so im sure that the gorgeous girls in the photos scammers use would not have too much of a problem finding somebody if they looked in the right places! lol

thanks for your posting,
it is not easy or impossible to get an idea what is reality in my opinion.
And I only do have a very smalll impression of Russia today and different areas in
Russia. I believe it is hard to find work.
I corresponded with that girl,
her letters I read again now sound honestly and individual,
the one thing I regret is not to have any goodbye.
Could imagine lot of reasons for this and can't reproach anything.
My origin motive I contacted her was to correspond with a pleasant looking girl from 'strange' country ...
ya, 'look in the right places', who knows ...

[hidden] from Ukraine
Beware of this most dangerous gold-digger from Kharkov, Ukraine! Her name is Alesya, about 18 y.o. and I met her back in September 2006 when I was there. The first 18 days in Sept 2006, I was there we met 8 times total. She ended up taking me to the big market there several times asking me to buy this and that for, which unfortunately I did to a tune of about $150 plus. I realized she was just trying to milk me without feeding the cow anything, other than a few kisses, and I then came back in Oct, and she met me only 5 times in 21 days. Then I tested her by telling her I wanted to spend some money on her. She jumped at this chance and we went to the big market and found her a $140 coat, and I opened my wallet only to find only a couple of bucks. She asked what happened and I said my money is not here...right cause I took it out. So I said maybe it got stolen. She had originally earlier written her name, passport number and address in my address book, but the next day when we met and I was going to show her the money, before I got to, she wanted to see something about her address and then she ripped out the pages which were for sure her correct data. She then entered a bogus address, which I late checked out to be just that-bogus. She assumed I didn't have any money, which I actually did, and while I looked for about 15 seconds at my vandalized address book, she slipped off and vanished into the market not to be seen there again. This woman is MOST DANGEROUS!!! If you are in Kharkov, Ukraine do NOT associate with this gold-digger!!! This image was also posted here: Is this Russian girl scamming me? How to recognize scammers

Hi, my dear friend
thank you for your letter. You seem to be a very good person, and
I hope that we will soon become close friend or even soul mates.
First I want to tell you little about myself.
From the very beginning. I am a very romantic person, and dream
to achieve my main life aim - to meet my only true love. You know,
I have a friend. Her name is Svetlana. Last year she got acquainted with a
foreign man with a help of Internet. They wrote letters to each other nearly 3
months. They fell in love, he came to Lugansk for her and they married!
They are very happy and love each other very much. Now I believe in such fairy tales.
You can see that I am a beautiful girl, but I can’t find my soul mate in my native town.
I want to love and to be loved not only for my beauty but for my soul. I know that
this is possible and I feel
that it will happen very soon, or maybe already happened and I just don`t
know yet about this:-) I long for a serious relationship, beautiful
and romantic, with flowers and candle light dinners, with
meeting a sunrise together, talking about love.
I decided to get acquainted through Internet. I applied to the agency for help, because
unfortunately I don`t speak English and don`t have any experience of using Internet.
Nevertheless, I think that this won`t become a problem for our communication, because
the language of love is international, and can be understood by everybody.
My name is Ania, I am 22 years old. I was born on the 26 of February,in 1984. I am a
student and study at University. I study very good, because our government pays money
for my education and I have to study well to stay at University am from Ukraine and my
native town is Lugansk.I can tell you about it next time if you want.
My family is poor,so
I have to work as a nurse. Inspite of
extremely low salary it is very interesting for me, because I love kids and
communication with them brings me joy. When I see them playing, I smile.
Because children are the flowers of life.
Well, I think I have to end now,
If you are interested in my person write me. I am looking for it with impatie.
Hello, my dear friend!
Thank you for your letter. I read it with great pleasure. I was really looking for
it and I was really glad to hear from you.
I was a little bit afraid that you won`t find me and my life pretty enough. So now
I can calm down:-)
You know, I don`t have much friends. I try to communicate only with people, whom I
can really trust, whom I can tell everything, and I know they will never
betray me. The fact is that I`ve been often deceived by people who
were really close to me. That is my father. My family is not very large. We are a
family of three: my mother( she is the best!), my elder brother and I. My Dad left
us many years ago. He drank a lot and one day he left us. My
brother and I were very little girls and hardly understood what has happened. We
understood that Dad left us forever only when we asked Mom when would Dady come home.
She looked down and answered that never. From that time all our problems began.
My Mom is a librarian, so I think that you understand that her salary wasn`t enough
even to buy us all necessary clothes. We understood everything of course, but still
it was very painful to see other children playing with their Dads and dresses beautiful
modern clothes. And this made us more close to each other. Now I try to work hard in
order to give my mother everything she needs, like she did before, though it`s not so
easy. It is hard for me to talk about this. So lets talk about you.
I`m getting letters from you and feel myself really happy. Do
you believe in such things, or, maybe, you have already felt something
like that before? As you can see, I try to keep my heart open and my
soul light and romantic, in spite of all the difficulties and sorrows
of my life. I hope to find true love with a man, who would love me just
the way I am and who would never betray me. And I would give everything
to make him feel on the top of the world. I am finishing.
Hopefully waiting for your letter,
