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).

Hi Peter! Have good day! Peter, you ask, where I live - to To regret
it is far from you. Otherwise it was not necessary for us much e-mail,
To learn each other. I for the first time have acquaintance through
the Internet. It was very difficult to me to place my structure in a
service of acquaintances, because I am in Russia, the service of
acquaintances does not accept the members from this country. I had to
specify in a profile, that I am in USA. In this letter I shall inform
you a little information myself and if the dialogue with me will be
interesting to you, I shall tell about myself in more detail in the
following letters. I live in an average part of Russia, in city Kazan
in Tatarstan republic. But if we shall decide to meet, I hope, that it
not Will be a problem for us because I have made a little Travel to
other countries. I was in the several countries of Europe; For example
Turkey, Italy, Germany. I made these travel as The tourist. Therefore
Peter, you should not have excitement be relative That we not beside.
I such woman, that if I shall like The person for a meeting I shall
reach even on the moon. Besides in Our days is not a problem to make
such travel. I not I worry about it and I have necessary feelings to
get acquainted and it is possible To have relations with the person of
other state. It is very interesting - Other culture, thinking,
traditions. For me this new-Probably and you Peter Can learn, that
such the Russian woman. I hope that you have not lost interest to me
and will answer me soon. I wait for yours e-mail, my American friend.

was pleasant to receive the letter from you today. I am very glad that
you have written to me. Thank for your picture, it me to like. I shall
be To increase and to unpack it. I liked absolutely all your pictures.
That picture with the clown really amusing! What small little mouse!
You have made absolutely correctly, that have not listened to the
neighbour and have let off that little mouse. Peter You e-mail means
for me, that I too was interesting to you. You Really Peter, see a
picture of me nice? Peter, at me is present to you It is a lot of
questions and I would like to ask them in the messages, I hope you
Will allow to me answers to them - OK? You for me the nice person, And
on this for me it is important to know your opinion on some things. Me
to not irritate, that you to be more senior than me. I to search for
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.

Till recently India used to offer Visa on Arrival to Russians, but no more ...
So, some of my earlier posts on this statement are no longer valid, thanks to politician gandoos (=faggots)
But Bangladesh, and Nepal still offer VOA to Russians, you guys can easily setup an initial meeting there with a REAL RUSSIAN GIRL! As always NEVER SEND MONEY to scammers, Russians or otherwise.

Hi my lovely Wilson ! I am glad to speak again with you!
Dear Wilson, I have good news. Today I have met the agent of travel
agency to learn concerning the visa. He has explained me a situation
about reception of the visa to you . In Europe
has made more strict control over entrance to the country because of
terrorism and consequently to receive to you the visa uneasy. But the
agency will make it for me. The agent has told, that they recently
already received some visas . I am very glad Wilson, that we will not
have with it big difficulties. At first I had fears, that the agency
cannot make it or for this purpose very long time will be required.
But the agent has told, that the visa will demand from them two or
three weeks. Tomorrow I will need to reach in office of agency, to
sign there the contract and also we shall decide question on payment
of them. Well my lovely now the time to me to go to make photos for
the visa and to fill in questionnaires for embassy. The agent has
told, it should be is prepared tomorrow when I shall come to them to
office. I very pleased Wilson, that now our preparations have begun and
will pass a little more time we shall be together!
Have good day my dear Wilson , i hotly kiss
you!!! Your Olga.
P.S...My dear Wilson would like to speak you, that we we shall soon speak by
phone, but I wrote to you, that my cellular telephone has been stolen
and now I only can call to you from mine the grandfather. Well I did
not wish to inform its number as it now is not much sick and would not
like it to disturb especially if will start to call. I think, that you
understand my anxiety for my grandfather. Well soon we shall speak by
with you to phone but as soon as it becomes better to mine to the

hi,at present i am emailing a russian girl and yes she is from kazan in tartarzan.
but it is very strange how i came into contact with her to be honest ime not after any russian women to date with and this email came out of the blue and ended up in my spam folder perhaps as BCC from somebody else last week. i have analysed the use of language to see if any is personally addressed to me,if the email is a possible template in which the scammer inserts different names for diff people,checking to see if she actually reads your email and not just rambles on about something else,ive check the ip by visual traceroute pinging etc.ive recieved the 3rd long email from her has not asked me for a wire transfer yet but i will be prepared for that lol,apart from that i havent a clue what site the girl advertises on.anyway be careful as some of these girls are very attractive and what on earth do they want with a 41 yr old guy like me.
Hey Beware, It is not the legitimacy of the person you should be concerned with here!
i have living proof that these women do actually exist, However the scam is more engrained than you might
They gather important information about you and will meet you if you have adequate assets.
They are professionals and will take things to unimaginable extremes. Even having a baby or two.
This is when you really get Fxxxckd You pay them money to get them over here and sign a Affidavit of support for 10 years then you marry them, they have a kid/kids, They create a dispute with you and get you thrown out of your own home with a protection order/Restraining order. Claim abuse in the relationship, then divorce even with a kid, it only makes it better for them you will see.
Then you pay maintenance until they get a job. And even after And you pay child support! And you support there asses for at least 10 years, While they bring there Mothers Fathers Brothers and sisters over. Then even after divorcing you they still get there green card and citizenship, Because there is a clause that if there is abuse, which doesn't have to be substantiated or proved just a lie or stated in the protection order. They get there Visa and remain in the country. Even if you get the order thrown out or 'Quashed' INS doesn't care that they lied. All they care is that there was alleged abuse. Then you happily give them 1/2 or all of your house and life accumulated belongings. Don't think your going to get half of what you had... Had being the Key word. When you get thrown out of your house/home and are restricted from entering it, In my case it was 6 months Guess whats going to be left... yes in your divorce it says that both parties will not remove any personal belongings from the home. Will guess what, When your restrained from your own home just try it. Your butt will end up in Jail for 2 years or more. And it only takes them less than a week to clean out everything you own... So you still think you have something to stand on because the court ordered them not to take anything out of the home... Well guess again. All they have to say is that you took and Sold it before you divorced. All that will be left is the garbage to remove.
My advice is if your considering a foreign relationship legit or not, R U N A S F A S T A S Y O U C A N A W A Y
Under any circumstancDon' t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't be stupid and bring one of these nasty lying sneaky kniving thieves over here and screw you and our country for the rest of our lives. it will not be the screw you were looking for.
And this is just the beginning it compounds from there.
anonymous from United States
Wow, this is crazy. People from other countries have told me stuff like this because they experienced it before. Man I am extremely sorry for this happening to you, that really sucks. These people don't look at relationships the way they are supposed to look at it, they think first hand.
1. Get married.
2. Have babies.
3. Get my greencard/citizenship.
4. Get divorced.
5. Bring my entire bloodline here in the US.
This is truly amazing but that is what they do. And the law has more pity for them than they do for you.

hi, ive had more emails from the same girl,but i have been managing to intercept some of her emails she recieves and sends out.ok an interesting point to note that the particular photographs that she emails to other mugs/recipients appear to be competently photographed i know as that is a sideline for me,the ladies hair is dyed almost black and she wears a very beautiful black dress and is well photographed with the correct use of lighting.the photographs i generally recieve tend to from a good compact camera where the lady seems to have natural blonde hair and casual dress(nothing wrong with that).the english content in the email tends to be almost a literal very rigid translation as though it has been run through a translation program of sorts.but having said that some of my relatives live in switzerland and their english diction is rather strange.well so far i have recieved and send 5 emails and i am waiting with baited breath for that wire transfer of money request to pay for bogus flights or healthcare,or whatever.i cannot wait to rip myself off LOL.so beware.
