My name is Robert, and I'm 31 years old and have been in search of a Russian bride, from time to time, for several years now. I was nearly taken for a scam a few years ago ("Paradise of Angels"), but I've recently been duped into another transaction, albeit less costly. I ordered a few addresses from a few days ago. I ordered several because the addresses were very cheap ($2.00 each), but there was a minimum order of 5 addresses (then a "handling fee" of $5.00 tacked on). When I received my contact information for the girls, several of them were in the form of an email addresses alone, and those email addresses were invalid. has made no effort to remove the profiles of the ladies with invalid contact information from their website. The email with the contact information includes the following pointless statement ... 

"... there can be no returns or refunds. Choose carefully when ordering."

I'm suspicious of this entire operation, and I'd advise any man seeking real women to avoid or any affiliate site. Robert

Darya Lebedeva (Volgograd, Russia) 

I am almost divorced and decided to post a profile on Yahoo. After about 2 weeks, I received a message from "Darya" asking me to correspond with her on her personal email. After about 7 letters, she has fallen in love with me. At first I thought it was for real, but after falling in love with someone after a week? Someone she knows nothing about? She asked me to tell her about me and I did, I know a little Russian, so I am sure she understood. She did acknowledge anything I told her except that I could call her a nickname. She has a cat named Murka and her parents died in a fire. I found this site before she asked for money, thanks to whoever posts this site for free. Thanks to Darya, I think I will try to fin  a legitimate Russian girlfriend. Oh yeah, happy birthday Darya! (Feb 24, 1974 she said) Here is the original email, followed by the others in order received.



Hello, Me name is Darya. After birthday of my girlfriend after all my girlfriends have left to meet with the husbands and guys I has decided, that the friend with whom I might connect all further life too is necessary for me, but such person with whom I would not be happy is not necessary for me. I shall tell to you slightly about myself, me 29 years, I live in city of Volgograd in spite of the fact that it is very beautiful city, here very difficultly to find the good person with which it is possible would be to connect the life, the purposes of people in our city very much low, and the girlfriend has advised me to look same people as well as I i  the Internet, I and have made I have gone to the Internet of cafe and have found a site which to me the girlfriend has advised, at her mum as has got acquainted with the person from Germany. From all countries which were offered me on a choice, I have decided to choose , on films and under stories I know, that people for which his personal honour and decency is appreciated more than any petty interests live in this country. After short viewing structures I have seen yours which most approaches me, and have decided to write to you in hope that I shall receive from you the answer. Excuse I has distracted from the story about itself slightly. As I to you already spoke me 29 years I live in Russia, city of Volgograd,  my weight makes 54 kgs at growth of 172 centimeter. At me higher education on a speciality the ecologist, but on the trade I do not work, as on it it is very difficult to find work. I work to help the bookkeeper in the company which is engaged in sale of home appliances. I live one without parents, my parents were lost at a fire of 6 years back, my grandmothers and grandfathers communists, my relatives were noblemen when Russia king corrected earlier, but there was it for a long time. I never supported ideas communists, they have resulted the country which once was great power, in full route. But about it I shall not continue to me this subject not so it is pleasant have shot.  I live together with mine cat Murka, she my best friend! She also likes to ask to have a meal black color at me, in exchange on it she may sit next hours me and purr. Unfortunately I badly know the English language so I the first time shall be to use the translator, but I go on rates, on studying language. With impatience I wait from you for the answer. Your new friend Darya. Please write me on my personal e-mail: So it will be more convenient to me to write to you and I can send you the photos!

You would know how many pleasures to me have brought that you  have answered me! Now I understand, that people in your country really  responsible ! Today I came into computer club and have scanned some the  images and with this letter I send them to you, I hope, that I to you  like. I directly would like to learn more about you to learn your  interests as you live as you work. I am very glad to have such friend, as  you. I in life very cheerful person and at me very responsible work as  I already spoke, I work to help the bookkeeper, and I not in what a  case should not make a mistake, both in work and in life I not less  responsible person, I think, that the person should concerns to associates as  wants that to it concerned. In my life was a lot of pleasure, but  besides it is pleasure always stood on a number with more sad events. I never was for the husband and I have no children, but I very  much would like them to have, but from the person with whom our love  would be mutual and that the child anything did not require. The main  features of human character I think Sincerity, kindness, politeness and as  I think, that the person it is necessary should be the respectable citizen with love to the country. I very much frequently see young pairs, I see as they are happy, I sincerely am glad for them, but thus I remain  itself the person whom not loved At me when that was one friend, but it  is little bit sad history, I was possible shall tell to you about it  little bit later. I as like to be on a nature, there I feel quieter. As other my hobby is domestic animals and in particular as I already spoke you my cat Murka. On it I also shall finish the letter to you, and with impatience I shall look forward to hearing. Your new friend from Russia Darya

Hi my beautiful friend Mark I am sincerely glad, to that you have answered me again. From the very beginning of the letter I want to inform you, that I do not smoke and I have no harmful habits with alcoholic drinks. Your letters give me a charge of energy for all day! I read them with the great pleasure. In the letters you may ask me about everything, that interests you  about me. But if I on them do not answer you, do not take offence, I simply can not understand it , set to me it slightly on another and I it is indispensable on him shall answer you.

I write the letters from the Internet of cafe so be not upset if I shall not answer you the letter at once, simply the Internet of cafe may be closed.

It is very interesting to me what weather at you today, I think, that at you should be warm.  Spring my liked season, I likes to look, how the nature comes to life after winter. As the first kidneys on trees are dismissed. Birds who an autumn departed on the south arrive , but they again will return. The first grows a grass, many children leave on street and are pleased to this season. Children it future our planet and on them all our hope, does a pleasure me the big pleasure to  observe of them. My parents educated me good formation as you know I has finished the Volgograd state university on a speciality the ecologist. But nevertheless I do not work on this speciality. Sometimes at me in life there come such times, that I seem to me, that already for whom it is not necessary, that I shall stay one, but nevertheless I calm myself and I believe that the main love in my life still will come, the god will help me with it. Tell to me more about itself, you like to listen to what your liked dish, what your liked film, what else music. My liked dish it pelmeni, this very tasty dish from  Russian kitchen which consists of forcemeat of a beef and pork with an onions and spices wrapped up in a dough and are cooked.

From many steal letters simply from there is nothing to  do , but nevertheless I shall give you the address: Russia Volgograd 435056 street Karla-Marksa 58 flat 25 Lebedeva Darya But it seems to me, that all oaee is easier to communicate  through the Internet, in general I think, that the Internet this big  achievement as people from two different ends of a planet may communicate with each other freely that I have got acquainted with such person as you  already because of it only I shall tell to the Internet many thanks!  Much to our regret I do not have phone, in Russia it is the  whole problem, not enough at whom in Russia there is a phone of a house  so we might speak by the phone, but it is possible if such opportunity I  necessarily shall call you will be presented me.

Katya/Ekaterina Kostateeva (Volzhsk, Russia)

She uses photos of Russian pop star Alsu. She even tells of her mother's death and tries to get you to send money to her. The address she uses is Russia, Volzhsk, Lenina str., house 5 flat 3 83631. I am fortunate to have a Russian teacher who immediately recognized the photos. I went to Alsu's web site and found many of the photos I had been sent. This person is very convincing and I am sure many men have been scammed into sending money to that address. Is there anyone in Russia that shuts these people down? This person has to use a name to pick up funds at Western Union. Sincerely, Robert

Ekaterina Skobeleva (Kaluga, Russia)

I came across her past  letters that were posted as ~ Svinuhovo - Ekaterina . I was 24 hours too  late in finding your site , bad timing . Hope she uses the money for good. Her E-mail is 


Hi, my Jon. There is a fine news to me and to you - I have received the visa. I  end you it. I shall have also vacation on January, 26.  Today I went to the company which reserves airway tickets. I asked  hem how I can reach Phoenix (PHX) and how much it costs. They  answered me that the ticket costs $ 821 USD. I asked them to find  cheaper tickets, because this price is expensive for me. They answered  that they had a cheaper ticket but the beginning of the flight  28-January-04. It costs $ 714 USD. I asked them to reserve a ticket.  >But they refused, because they have a lot of clients at this time and  they can't reserve my ticket without advance payment. I spoke with them  for a long time and asked to reserve the ticket for me without advance  payment but they didn't agree. Then I wondered if it is possible to pay  a part of the money now and the other part later. They didn't agree. I  spoke with them for a long time and I managed to persuade them. They  agreed. We agreed that I would pay a part of the price today and the  other part later.   I paid $ 310 USD. But it was little for an initial payment. Then I  went to the pawnshop and pawned my silver and gold embellishments for $  118 USD. It was my last money. The number of the flight on which I  reserved the ticket is Aeroflot-Russian International Airlines 323.  The time of departure from Moscow is 11:00 AM.  The time of arrival in Phoenix (PHX) is 4:22 PM Terminal 2  I shall arrive in Seattle (Seattle Tacoma) number of the flight Alaska  Airlines 752.  After this I will fly to Phoenix (PHX), to you Jon.  It is very difficult for me to tell you about it. But I have done  everything that I could. I paid visa. I paid a part of the ticket. But  this money is not enough. I didn't want to burden you. I wanted to  reach you with my own money but unfortunately I failed. Now I have to  pay the remaining part. It is only $ 286 USD. I have to pay this money  before 23-January-04 morning. Otherwise I will lose my money and  ornaments.  If you need me, if you trust me and if you want to see me, please,  send the money for the ticket before 23-January-04 morning. I  understand that it is a difficult decision for you, but we must trust  each other. Any union without trust is impossible if it is a union of  wife and husband or union of boy-friend and girl-friend or union of  business partners. I don't want to be hypocritical. That's why I want  to tell you following: I do not think that you would like to give the  love to the woman whom you won't trust. Also I would not like to give  my love to the man which I won't trust. It's a first check for us. And  much depends upon it, may be everything. We must trust each other.  That's why I was the first who made the first step. Step to you.  Of course if you don't want, you can not help me. It is bad but not  fatal. I will lose my money. IT IS BAD TOO BUT NOT FATAL TOO. I paid $  335 USD for making visa, and I paid a part of the ticket- $ 428 USD. It  is big money for me, but I TOLD YOU ALREADY THAT MONEY IS NOT THE MAIN  THING IN THE LIFE. But I trust you, and I know that YOU ARE A MAN OF  HONOUR AND YOU ARE A GENTLEMAN. I don't want you top doubt in my  honesty and that's why I am sending you the view of my visa.   If you can help me I send you my coordinates. I give you necessary elements for sending money with the help of Money Gram: Bank Kaluga  Azarovskaya st. 18  Kaluga Russia 248631  for Skobeleva Ekaterina. To get the money, I should tell to employee of bank your full name,  full address, exact sum which I should receive and some confidential  numbers (Money Transfer Control Number), which will give you, when you  will send the money.  Please forgive to me all my words. I speak so because I am in  despair and confusion. Now, when only one step is separated us, I am  afraid. I am afraid that you will not help, and all my diligence will  have no use. I need you and I want to be with you and the word of  honor, your help is necessary for me. I have not calculated my forces.  But together we are much stronger. We will pass through difficulties  and barrier, it is much easier to do it together. I want to present you  all my infinite love and fidelity.   I understand that it is the big money for you. I did not want to  ask you. I thought that I can make all itself. The loneliness has made  me strong. I have got used to live without help, and to rely only on  myself. I ask somebody for help very seldom, but now I ask you to help  me. I have made a step forward. Make your step towards me. I hope that  I have not offended you something. I need you and I trust you. I know,  that you will not throw me now when there is only one step between us.  I am waiting for your reply. Kiss you. Your Katya. 

Iriada/Irina (Irkutsk, Russia)

I am a 35 SWM in the Kansas City, Missouri area. I received an email from this "Irina" thru a dating web page. I was looking locally and had never even considered looking abroad. I don't have the very first few emails, but it started out with her wanting an email address outside the system, no problem. We exchanged several emails and PICs, but she never answered any of my questions directly and the emails seemed cookie cutter, repeating my name several times, as if she just did a "find and replace" on the name. So I started to get kind of suspicious. Then "Irina" wanted my address an phone number. I gave her my number and someone did call at about 2:45 am and left a message that this was Irina from Russia. I sent her an email to set up a better time to call me, but she never actually replied to any emails and answered my question, just kept sending new emails. To make a long story short. I found your web site and even though I did not see her picture under any names, I did find several letters that were almost exactly the same as some I was receiving "Aunt Tatayana in Moscow is looking into a visa" "Rasia at her bar was jealous" word for word from other letters on your site. So I decided to play along. It took "Irina" only a few weeks to fall in LOVE with me ?!?!?! (whatever!!, I don't even know this girl). She repeated over and over that she loved and missed me. How do you miss some one you have never met or even talked to? Her English seemed to improve as the letters went on. She did not ask for money for about 2 months. $430 for a tourist visa or $750 for a fiancÚ' visa to be sent Western Union. Then the airfare later. Needless to say I am no fool and did not send any money. I simply replied to her that I was on to her and I knew for a fact that a fiancÚ' visa could only be applied for by me from the USA. I was not going to send any money to her and that ha found letters similar to hers on the internet. NO REPLY BACK FROM HER. Imagine that!! Kerry

Hi my friend Kerry! I'm happy so much to receive your answer again and again!!! My dear Kerry, of course, may be you want learn about our correspondence, about correspondence's essence too, really? As I want to tell that I have decided to get acquainted through an Internet due of my girlfriend Oksana which one year back has gotten acquainted with the foreigner French Alex, I have said you about this earlier. It's might be a bit strange that we both decided to find our "half" in such a way as by the Internet, you might ask me why did I decide to apply to the Internet, there are a lot of russian guys over here... Frankly speaking, I don't know how to explain it, but you can understand, every time I met with somebody I realized that this man is not what I need... I was desperate, I start thinking that maybe it was me who was the reason, but now I think I've understood what's the problem. Russian guy are very spoiled with good attitude forward them, there are too many beautiful women in Russia, who are ready to share their love with them, that they stopped value it. They don't consider they have to be polite and caring with woman and might think. I'd like to be sincere, I don't want to play games with the person I love and want him to answer me the same. I'd like to tell you my "small secret", in my life I had the the serious relation with one guy only which I loved very much, in the first time all was good, but then on unknown reasons he began to drink the alcohol a lot of...A LOT OF...When I saw him in very alcoholic status, he allowed himself to humiliate me by the insults, indecent words, and in separate cases to beat me :( Sometimes I heard from him that on another side he had another girl... I suffered this humiliation a lot of time because I loved him...But then my patience has bursted... I hated him...And I has destroyed our relations...And I don't regret about it not! Then as I told you my girlfriend Oksana has recommended me to begin the relation by the Internet, on Oksana's opinion the guys from France and USA can to love, to appreciate and to respect women as considerable men too. Oksana has chosen her boyfriend Alex from France because she know French language a little. I don't speak French language, I can speak and write English language, and I have decided to find the man from USA and I have decided to write you, Kerry. Kerry, may be, possible, we will together in the future time, may be I would like to look the marriage too, if you will want this, I don't want to hide this so important fact, but we must to learn more things about each other more and more, it will reasonably and correctly, really, Kerry? I hope that you will agree with me with this fact too. Please, tell me about this, ok? But in my opinion, again and again, we must learn about each other more and more, I repeat this! Please, agree with me, Kerry! My dearest friend Kerry, I would like to tell you about my family. I want to say to you that I have a friendly family. This are my mom Nina, my daddy Konstantin too. I don't have any brothers and sisters. On professions my mom is a seller in the shop, and my dad is an engineer on the factory. Our family are living without any conflicts too, we have a good understanding between our members of our family. Because, I think that our parents gave to us a good education. I think that it's so good and I'm so proud that we have my mom and my daddy. Also I want to say to you that I live with my family in one apartment.  y the way I have consulted with my parents about the account my acquaintances with you through the Internet, they have estimated it as positively because they care about my future life of course. My parents would want that I have a happy life, and would want that I will find my man. As I told you earlier, I have never been married Kerry. As already I spoke to you earlier, I work as a waitress in the bar here in Irkutsk City. It's a perfect and cosy cafe. My job is very pleasant for me, people in our city are kind, and visitors of the cafe are not roughness to us, certainly there are cases when the visitors are not correct with us and spoil mood, but it happens very seldom. I'm very interested to learn about your work, Kerry, and what do you do in free from work time? During our weekends, in my free time, we are with my girlfriends, also with Alex and Oksana sometime, go for a walk to the city, we like to sit in cafe too for a cup of tea. I like my girlfriends very much, especially my best girlfriend Oksana. She is as native sister for me! By the way I want to say to you that Oksana works as a waitress in our bar too. Also I want to say to you that Oksana and Alex are living in Irkutsk City now. Oksana have visited Alex to France at last time, Alex asked Oksana to visit in France him after that when they have understood that they love each other. I remember, Oksana was so happy in this time. They lived together during two month in France. And then they have came to Russia, to Irkutsk City too, simply, Oksana said to Alex that she have missed about her parents, and that she want to visit on some time her parents, and they came to Irkutsk from France. They are very happy together, they love each other very much, I envy to Oksana and Alex slightly :) and also, of course, we meet with each other sometimes and spend a lot of time together. We are so good friends! Also I want to say to you that I have never been outside of Russia, I have never been in an other countries, but I would like to travel at once, it's so romantically, I think :) Well, Kerry, I must to finish my e-mail to you, I attached my following pictures, on the first picture are me, Oksana's younger sister Natasha, and Oksana; on the second picture Oksana and Alex. Kerry, I hope that we will continue to correspond with each other and you will tell me much more about yourself, and I will try to tell about myself as more as possible in future e-mails.

Hi dearest Kerry! I'm so very much happy receiving your reply again, Kerry! I want to say to you that your messages became an important part of me and my life, your e-mails help me live, I don't have boring mood in general, but I have a sad mood when is bad weather in the street when it's coldly. But when I receive your warm messages, I forget about bad mood at once, I have a smile on my face and magnificent mood from your e-mails, Kerry! I can't without your messages now, Kerry. You can see that I write to you so long inform e-mails about myself, because I want that we know about each other very much. I thought that it's so important for us Kerry, really??? By the way today it's coldly and rainy on the street, but it's north wind too, I don't like this, it is around -2 degrees C. And how about your weather today? I like the late spring very much! I like the spring because in this season I have a vacation from my job in the middle of May, it's so nice! I like to spend this vacation with my family and with my friends too. Basically, in vacation I like to go to camping in the wood, which is situated around near Irkutsk City. Kerry, I hope that you know that our russian woods are so beautiful, I hope in America too. There are the pines and beautiful russian birches basically in our woods. Also through this wood proceeds the small river, this place is so real romanticism, believe me Kerry! We are with my family, my dad and my mom pack a backpacks, we take a large tent, we take a necessary foodstuff, and we are together with my family go to camping. I like this very much, Kerry. Especially, I like to be near this small river too, my dad like to fish very much, I'm not fisher :) But, once I have tried to fish, and I have caught a small carp :) I was so surprised by this, and what about you? Do you like to fish? :) Also do you know, Kerry, that the food which is prepared on a nature more better than the food in home? It's a fish soup basically. Also we eat fish canned food. It's the sprats in a tomato sauce. It's so tasty to eat on nature. In total, I like camping very much, Kerry, and how you spend your vacation? Tell me, ok? It will be interesting for me. Dearest Kerry, also my friends in our bar are asking me about you very much all time :) I tell them that you are very good man, also I want to say to you that some my girlfriends envy me slightly because I found so good man as you by the Internet. But I don't address on their envy of any my attention. Also my collegues from my job asked me about  that did you sent me any gifts. I answered them that it's not necessary for me. The main gifts from you to me are your warm messages and you, Kerry! Also if your remember, Kerry, I said you in my last message about that it's not necessary to send me any parcels by the usual Post Office Services. I have said to Oksana and Alex about larceny of postmails and others sendings about that some my friends said me. Alex was agree with me too that it willn't necessary to send any things by the Post Office Services. The fact in that when Alex and Oksana have got acquainted, Alex decided to send to Oksana a nice gifts to Irkutsk by any Federal Express Service. This gifts were a beautiful flowers and nice woman white dress for Oksana. When Alex sent it to Oksana, Oksana didn't receive this so nice gift from Alex. The gifts were lost by this Service for the unknown reasons. It was so insulting for Alex, and, is especially for Oksana. She cried very much from this to a grief. Alex wanted to submit to court on this Federal Express Service, but Oksana reconvinced Alex to not submit to court on this Service. So this beautiful gifts was lost without a trace, Kerry. From this my dear Kerry, please, don't send me anything by the any Post Office Services, ok? I don't want that will happen as it was happen with Alex and Oksana. Also dear Kerry, I want to return to the problem of the terrorism. Some time back I heard that terrorists have sent the biologically infected messages to major government agencies and editions of the newspapers of USA. Nightmare! I worry so much if you will send me any parcels, that terrorists will can to infect your parcel, I hope that you understand my anxiety... Kerry, I would like to tell you that Oksana and Alex want that if we with you will be together, that we will visit them :) Kerry, they will leave Russia through a month, they will come to Alex's Native Land to France. Alex said to Oksana that he don't want to live in Russia, because he likes his native France more than Russia, Oksana want to live in France too as she said me...I'll miss about them so much. Also they see that we have a good relations with you and they wish us that we will can together soon and that I will come to you in USA, and we will live together as Oksana and Alex are living together. I want to say to you, Kerry, that I am thinking about you more and more, possible, about my coming to you in USA Kerry, I feel that our relations became more than friendship, really Kerry???

My darling, our love with you includes  the most magnificent feelings are the trust, the care to each other,  and complete understanding in all! I so thank God and the Internet  that we found each other in this so large world my Kerry!  My love Kerry!!! MOST OF ALL I WANT TO SAY YOU THAT I HAVE A GREAT  HAPPY NEWS FOR US!!! My girlfriend Oksana have connected with her aunt  Tatyana to Moscow! As Tatyana has said to Oksana that she has learned  how much cost a visa and a foreign passport for my coming to you!!!!!  Tatyana have connected with Embassy and there Tatyana was informed  that it will be better for us with you if I will have the visa of a  tourist. This tourist visa B-2, the visitor visa will valid during six  months. The price of this visa, as Tatyana was informed in embassy, is  120 US dollars. Besides the process of the registration of the visa  osts 60 US dollars. By the way Oksana's aunt Tatyana as has taken an  interest about another kinds of the visas too, as to her have said,  that there is a set of kinds of the visas. For example, visa of a bride. Tatyana has thought that this visa of bride approaches to us,  but her in Embassy have said that this visa costs more expensively and  visa's registration costs a lot of money. It will cost around 750  dollars US and the registration of the visa will during eight months,  it is very long and expensive! From it because the tourist visa B-2 is  the betterest variant than visa of bride now for us my love Kerry!  My Kerry, I must to ask you one thing, I will need to ask your help  with a financial charges for the getting of all necessary documents  for my coming to you. Probably, may be you know the economic situation  in our country simply is awful, in our bar give the salary to work  personal with a long delay not looking on that the salary is the small  and its suffices only on necessary foodstuff and on payment of housing  municipal services. Our government explains it to those that simply  they don't have a money, I see our russian president Vladimir Putin on  TV very frequently, and he promise only on the words that the  sistuation in the country will be good in the future, but it's the  promises and the population understand it. It's the difficult  financial situation, and the government don't have a funds on the  salary for the any kind of the job in total. Awfully! Because my  Kerry, I need to ask you to help with the charges for the beginning  of the registration of the documents for my coming to you, I have so  great desire to come to you and be with you! Kerry, I do love you  so much, honey, and I don't want to lose you never!!!  My Kerry, also I asked my parents to help me with this charges on  the necessary documents for my coming to you, but my mum and dad  doesn't have such large funds though they would like to help us,  Kerry. My love Kerry, in general as aunt Tatyana said, I'll need  for 410 US dollars for the beginning of the registration. This amount  include the price of the visa is 120 dollars, visa's registration is  60 dollars, foreign passport's price is 65 US dollars, also I will need to pay for medical exams too, it will be 55 dollars, and I will need to pay for the coming from Irkutsk to Moscow City, I have learned  about the price of the airplane ticket Irkutsk - Moscow, it will be  3300.00 russian rubles or it is around 110 US dollars.  By the way Oksana's aunt Tatyana will try to find the cheaper prices  of the air ticket for the fling to you. Aunt Tatyana just will need in  some information, I need to ask you, Kerry, what is the name of  your airport??? Also, please, tell me about the approximate price of  the airplane ticket too, ok? Please, Tatyana will need this data as  she said to Oksana. As Oksana said me, Tatyana will try to find a  cheaper airticket! I so happy from this so happy news from Oksana's  aunt Tatyana! It seems to me that aunt Tatyana is good woman!  But now, at the first I must to begin the process of the registration  of all necessary documents for my coming to you, in total I will need  410 US dollars as I said, Kerry. My love Kerry, it will be  better to help me with this charges for the payment of the  registration by the system of Western Union, Oksana's Alex informed me  about this.

Julia Babikova (Ivanovo, Russia)

I am a single male, 38 years old living in Honolulu, Hawaii. I work as a disc jockey in a nightclub. Julia (a.k.a. Yulia) Babikova contacted me through my ad in Yahoo Personals under the Yahoo ID natalialevina and asked me to write to her. From the start, I was suspicious. But, I decided to give it a try anyway. OUr correspondence lasted from 5 October 2003 to 13 November 2003. She sent pictures with almost every email. The pictures were innocent enough: her eating ice cream, her sitting on a stool at a bar, her wearing a fur coat out in the snow, etc. My suspicions seemed confirmed, but I wanted to see how soon she would try to scam me for money. Sure enough, she quickly fell in love with me and asked that I send her $213, via Western Union, so she could get a visa to come and visit me. I made-up a story as to why I couldn't send it and she seemed to go along with it for a week or so, but finally stopped emailing me or responding to my emails. I was lucky to not have financially lost anything. After her initial equest for money, I reported her to Western Union as a possible scammer and  Western Union directed me to the Internet Fraud Complaint Center, which is a Federal US agency that handles scam reports like this one. I filed my complaint on 27 October 2003. You can report scammers at this website


Hi, I was very glad to get your reply. I came to the Internet cafe just to find some information and was looking through the sites. And suddenly my eye fell down on you. I don't remember what kind of site it was. I liked very much what I have seen and decided to write you. So if it is interesting for you, I believe I should tell you now more about myself. Well, my name is Julia, I am 29 years old. I have blue eyes and fair hair. But I try to change my image often as I always like to be different. I live in Russia, the city of Ivanovo. It is not big but very green and cosy. If you come here, you will find an ensemble of different architecture here. The are also theatres, cinemas, cafes and many other cute places. I work as a waitress in the local bar. Though I have a higher education, I can't find job on my profession that is why I work there to be more independent. My parents are on pension already. But pensions are so small that my father works part time as a watchman in the car park. And now I would like to ask you some questions. Tell me more about yourself, please, everything you want me to know. Where do you live, what place do you work in? Tell me about your parents. Everything you write me will be interesting for me. Unfortunately, I don't have a phone and computer that is why I use the service of the Internet cafe that is why sometimes there could be delays in my replies. Hope you understand me. Waiting for your reply. Yours Julya! 

Hello my dear Duane!!! In the first lines of my message I want to tell you that I miss you so much. You are the most important and best part in my life. And I just adore you!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, I've got to know what I need to come to you.  I need to do all the paper work to get a visa and then to buy tickets to come to you. As for visa, there is a Fiancee visa but it is not the best variant for us as we haven't met yet and we don't have the documents and pictures to improve our meeting. They will not allow me to go there as a guest but it is possible to get a Labour or visa for Work there. I can get this kind of visa very easy and quickly now. But the only problem now is that I don't have money for it (I need $213 for visa). It is very expensive for me and I can't find this money now. So I ask you to send it to me by Western Union as it is the most safe way to send money. For this purpose you will need my precise address: to Babikova Yulia. 14-9 Lebedeva str., Ivanovo, 460011, Russia. And in a week I will have this visa if I pay for it in some days. So everything depends on you now. I miss you so much and I want to see you as soon as it is possible. Just think in some weeks I will be able to hug you, to kiss you, to feel you near... P.S. Trust me and in some days I shall be with you. Yours Yulia!  



This is Andrew from Los Angeles. I am a Caucasian, 32 and self-employed. I am a private investigator. My usual specialties are background checks, drug testing and child protection measures. This is, yet again, a follow up to a post on page 211 in reference to MASHA/ELENA MAKSIMOVA/ANNA MILCHAKOVA (Kazan, Russian Federation). I also placed an ad in Yahoo Personals as I travel extensively and several friends of mine actually met and fell in love on the internet. After the first few weeks, I also was contacted by a "Masha" from Russia and my curiosity was peaked. So, I went along for the ride. Everything else is pretty much verbatim under the above headings. The letters are word for word with the same mistakes the gentleman speak of. Even one photograph is the same. I will attach the photographs I have received and the additions/changes in my correspondence is as follows: With me, she is "Masha" and gave me the name and address as in previous letters "Mariya Yakovlenko". The only big difference is she says she lives in CHITA CITY. Her occupation is that of "The Cardiologist". She has sanctioned and was permitted access to the internet during her free time. She changed the name of her friends to Oxana and Gunter. Again, everything else is verbatim as stated in previous postings.   Fortunately, my nature is to be cautious. I was immediately skeptical of Masha because her emotions moved very fast. I have just sent a letter informing Masha that, if we are to be together, I should handle things on this end. I suggested a Non-Immigrant Visa (90 day visit) so that we can get to know each other. I do not expect to hear back. However, I will update you accordingly.  Gentleman, do not be discouraged by these relatively few scams. I know first hand that there are many good/sincere ladies that want to find companionship through the internet. I have met several new friends in a relatively short period of time. Just be cautious. As stated on this site many times: "If it's too good to be true" or things move at a fast pace - be careful and do not hesitate to do a little investigating of your own. "Masha" even had me going for a few letters. The service provided by this site is invaluable. It took me 20 minutes to reach this site and find this scam. Verbatim. Many Thanks!

I'm 44 years old, I got a messege from that I had mail. It was from a women from Russia. I decided to reply with nothing but my email address and not much else. I got this response not once but twice. I had made a mistake and sent my email to her twice, therefore I get 2 replies dated\timed less than a minute apart. If you notice, she never used my name in her letter. It seems to follow the same format as other scammer letters.  This is the text from her friendfinder ad. She is a silver member, this means she has a paid membership.

Hello! Thanks for your nice letter. It was very pleasantly for me! Some  words about my family. I live with my mum and daddy, I have a sister.  My family is very important for me. Our family is very friendly and  intelligent. My father works on local TV, he is the professional operator.  He frequently take off me on a video film. My mum is the doctor in  children's hospital. To my passions I can concern reading. I always loved  the literature: usually I read Russian classics. Besides, I like to  listen to good music, love my friends, who are dear to me, like interesting  conversations with new people. I enjoy relaxing sound of waves on the  beach and long walks during the sunset, I like the bright sun and the  moody moon, animals and warm spring wind, to dream and to think: so I  love life and try to enjoy every minute of it, which God gives us. Before  our meeting we can find out each other better in our letters. I want,  that you have found out slightly more about me.

I like my city and my country, all my friends live  here and I enjoy by dialogue with them. I very much love summer, sun and  easy clothes. I love to float in warm water. I love a sport.

Write me soon  and tell me more about your  country, your life, your family, your work. Natasha.


I wrote to you in July 2003 reporting a scammer in Ukraine. Now here are some details of yet another scammer, this time in Russia. This one seems to be more clever than most. She works on a long-term basis. She advertised her profile a  "Nina".  I am a 55 year old English man. "Nina" was 25 when I saw her profile (copy follows this letter).  We corresponded for 10 months, and at first I had no suspicions. Her letters seemd very genuine, talking about all sorts of things and answering my questions and the points I made in my letters to her. She told me she lives with her parents, no phone available, at home or work, and uses a friend's computer to access emails and the internet. She said she has a sister, named Tatiana. She gave me the phone number of a friend from work, so I could call her at pre-arranged times.  Because I felt, after a few months and several emails, that she was genuinely fond of me, I asked her if she had an international passport, to come to England to visit me. She said no, she had not. I offered to send her enough money to pay for that, only a few dollars. She seemed to be genuinely keen to come to England and meet me.   At this point, the first alarm bell rang, because she confessed that her real name is not "Nina", but "Tatyana", (with a "y"). Her false name was apparently to protect her from scammers, unwelcome emails from her profile, junk email and the like. I was annoyed, and told her so. She apologised profusely and hoped I would understand. Her real name, she said now, is Tatyana Osykina. She gave me an address so I could send her the few dollars by Western Union. This raised the interesting point, if she is Tatyana, what is her sister's name? Also Tatiana, she said, (spelt with an "i"). Now I began to think there was something seriously amiss, because I never heard of a family with two girls having the same name! But, it is possible, so I gave her the benefit of the doubt and we continued writing.  She wrote and said she had her international passport, and gave me the number. I recognised it as an "international passport" type number. Her letters were still genuine, it seemed to me, and she was still talking about getting a visa and coming to London. She had sent some photos, but now she started to send erotic ones. And she started to write some VERY erotic stories about her and me in different situations. Sometimes the letters were in perfect English, sometimes not good English at all. I began to wonder if there was more than one person writing the letters.   At the same time her letters also contained interesting information about her, her work, poems for me, jokes, all very nice, and apparently completely normal and genuine. I sent a few more dollars for a gift, suggesting a new camera as the old one was not much good, and some little present for her mother. She was still talking about getting a visa and coming to see me. After a few more months I decided that my suspicions were unfounded, but probably wise anyway. I sent her money for a visa.   After she had received the money, "work" started to take her away for one or two weeks at a time. One day she said she would go to Moscow to the embassy the following week and apply for a visa. (I was sure she would NOT!)   I told her that I had sent a sponsor's letter to the embassy, so she could go there and have her interview and get her visa.  Some days later she wrote and said that she had given all her papers and the fee to a man in the embassy while she was waiting in the queue. I did not believe her so I phoned the embassy and asked if they had had an application from someone with her name. They had not, of course. Now her erotic emails became positively pornographic, accompanied by some pornographic photos of herself. Very nice to read and look at, but unfortunately, the only effect they had was to make me more suspicious that she was using them to keep an older man "hooked", presumably in the hope that I would send more money at some future date. The stories and letters were obviously copied straight from a magazine or book and the names changed to my name and hers. The next thing was that her grandmother was ill, near Moscow, so the whole family was going there and she would go for a second time to get a visa. I heard nothing for about 10 days, so I called the embassy again. Still no application from her. Then she wrote and said she had to go back to her grandmother's village for an important meeting about the estate. She would apply for her visa then.   She did not, of course. Perhaps the visits about her grandmother were genuine, perhaps not, but she did not go to the embassy. She said she still had the money I sent her, she had not used it for anything else. I asked her if she still had her international passport, She said yes, of course. (But if she had really given her papers to someone for a visa, she would given that too!!)  I did not hear from her for several weeks, and then received a letter from her sister telling me that she was seriously ill with pneumonia. Her family was going to visit her.   Eventually she "returned", evaded my questions about her illness, and said she would go to Moscow the following week, (again!!) and apply for a visa.  Another call to the embassy, another non-application.  Now I did not hear from her for several weeks again. I wrote once or twice, no reply, so I wrote and said I suspected her of being a scammer. This brought an immediate response, telling me she had met another girl in a chat room on the internet and this girl had told her that she was going to England to marry me!!! She was so angry, she said, she stopped writing.  I told her it was not true, and asked for the girl's name and email address. She evaded the questions. She also said that now her friend had moved away, so it was more difficult to get access to a computer, so she would not be able to write so much or so often.   The next letter from her was addressed to a different man. She had finally made the mistake that so many scammers make:- got confused about who she was writing to.  In the meantime I had run a (belated!) background check on her and discovered that although her name and address appear to be genuine, she had no official job. The phone number she gave me as belonging to a friend from work was registered to her address, but not in her family name. And, she has NO SISTER.   I wrote and told her what I had discovered. She said she does have a sister. She evaded the other points. I asked her to return the money she had remaining. She said she would. After two weeks I wrote again and asked her again to send it. Altogether, she promised FOUR TIMES to return the balance of the money. Of course she has not. I told her I would report her as a scammer, which produced a letter promising yet again to send the money. This was in December 2003. I have not heard a word since and have not had the money back.  There is no doubt that she has worked a long-term scam here, taking advantage of the money for the visa and using the porno stuff so that I would think it was worthwhile corresponding and sending more money. Four promises to get a visa, but she has never applied, four promises to return the money to me but she has not.   Her details and some photos follow;- and if anyone reading this recognises her, beware!! She may seem like a nice, demure family girl, but in truth she is a liar and a very patient, manipulative female out for what she can get! ame: Tatyana Anatol'evna Osykina.  Address:- 14 Pugacheva Street, Apartment 1, Armavir, 352909,  Krasnodarski-krai, Russia.

Hi. My name is Mr. Confidential. I am 35 and live in Texas. I had been corresponding with Ekaterina for about 6 weeks. Recently she told me that she was up for vacation and decided to come see me. Before I knew it she told me that she had spent all of her money, $1,550 for a plane ticket but was still a little short and requested that I send her $454.00 to purchase the ticket. I was lucky that my money transfer did not go through because I caught her in a lie. She messed up on telling me her birthday because she recently gave me a different date than what she had told me in her first letter. Then I found this website and saw her picture on here. I am so glad that this website exists!  


Svetlana Kalaeva (Samara, Russia)

I am a 52 year old married white american. My marriage had not been going to well so I had posted a Profile on one of the many Dating site to see what was happening in the dating world. I was contacted by a person claiming to be Sveta with a request to email her at Sveta E-mail Address(es): the email exchanges occured over a three week period. Right from the start I was honest about my situation and said I was not looking for someone to marry..I just was meeting new people and trying some new directions. After 2 emails of basic vague life situation and philosophy discussion and some photo trading "she" started to profess a profound sudden love for me....I must admit it was very appealing and became excited about this enticing relationship. She told me where she worked as a consultant in " a shop called Husein in Samara that provides things for people who like to work with their hands" , told me how her father died when she was 6 and her mother never remarried. I asked for her address to send her a gift and she gave it as  Svetlana Kalaeva,> 63 Pushkin Street, apt.# 50, > Samara, 443011, > Russia But insisted it was better to use the internet. That the post would steal items and letters did not always get delivered.About the 4th or 5th letter "she" began to beg to come to the US to see me...She said she could not live without me. She said she had just spent $350 of her hard earned savings to apply for her passport and "work" visa through her firm. That they were expected to be approved and back to her in 10-14 days and she asked me to help her with the airfare and wanted me to send her $850 by Western Union and she would come to visit me and do anything I wanted.... Well I have been around the block a few times and if something sounds too good to be true it generally isn't. Thats when I began to research on the net about Her city and came upon the links for Russian women seeking husbands and the scams that came along with them sometimes. I bought and read Elena's Scam Guide and got in touch with small agency in Samara run by Mikhail at and hired him to check out Sveta's address and where she worked. For only $12 he did the research and wrote back in 24 hours that I was being scammed...that there was no "Pushkin" street in Samara and that he had a new database of citizens of Samara and she wasn't listed. Mikhail was very helpful and kind and even emailed me several times after that with helpful suggestions. Well...I then emailed "Sveta" back and said that I had a russian housekeeper (which I do) who had a friend in Samara (which she doesn't) who would deliver a gift to her but could not find her apartment and could she please give specific directions to her apartment from his work (I went online and found a Software company in Samara and used their street address). She wrote back saying how confused she was that my friend could not find her and offer to go to him at his work. BINGO...the dodge..I was totally convinced then and then in next email insisted that she provide me with directions to her apartment, her mother's name and address, the name and address and phone number of her work..offering to call her with a translator...and then I said if she would do this I would buy her ticket through an agency here and she could pick it up at the airport. Then came the "hurt and dissappointed" email from her ending our relationship. I was very lucky to have been cautious and lucky to have found the right sources once my suspicions were aroused Thank you Elena and Thank you Mikhail attached are the photos she sent. and this was the email where she asked for money 


"Hi my lovely sweet friend David. I have read your letter. Of course, we have some problems but I want that together we have tried to make as it is possible better. I can make the working visa through my firm so there is no necessity to worry for the visa. I paid for it 380 $ US.I have already given documents and money to registration of the visa and passport and have told to me that it will be ready in 10-14 days. My visa will work in your country maximum for 3 months. I very much hope that you will not wait and will try to send me money faster that I might buy tickets already. You know I plan to leave my country from international airport Sheremetyevo in Moscow. I think I can save some money for trip to Moscow but I have not any money for international flight to your country. I need in about 850 $ US on air tickets and very much I hope for your help though I shall try to find some sum of money and to facilitate your problems. I want to arrive to you faster and my sweet now it depends only on you. I already spoke as difficultly to earn such money in Russia. I and thought that money may stop our attitudes. Really a little it is a shame to me to ask it from you but I have no other exit in this situation though I too have rescued 380 $ for my trip. I wanted to buy the new TV but I have no now this necessity because I love you and I want to meet you so strongly that is ready on all. I very much want to leave from here to you, I was bothered with my city, I want to see only you and to be only with you. I want to execute all your dreams and imaginations of me because I love you madly. I want to do only as you will wish. I very much believe in you and your help money faster. David, if you will send me money that make it through Western Union or Money Gram. Also I want to know your full address if I will receive it. Yours Sveta"

So there you go hope this will help someone else David

Svetlana Smirnova (Ekaterinburg, Russia)

I am a 45 yr old Divorced male and I presently advertise on the dating site On the 16th October 2003 I received an email from a female advertising as carpediem - Svetlana Smirnova who was also apparently of the site. This female expressed an interest in me and we began to correspond firstly by email direct to her email address and then by telephone to her cousins? house. Over a period of time I began to feel very attracted and fond of this person. She told me she was an English teacher at a school in Ekaterinburg and that her Father was a Policeman in the City. We began to make plans to meet and I wanted to travel to her City. She talked me out of this. I then wanted to spend a summer holiday with her, again she talked me out of this and suggested that she met with me in London. I agreed to do so and she then made travel enquiries.In subsequent mails and Telephone conversations she told me that it was too expensive for her and she asked if I would assist her with Visa and travel costs. I agreed to and sent her app 1100Euros. She mailed to say she had received this money and had gone to the travel agency to arrange things.I should say that at the start of our communications she forwearded to me via email a copy of her Russian ID document. In later mails she informed me that she could not leave Russia unless she had a surety of 3000Euros to enable her to get through Russian immigration.I thought this was strange and began to question her about it. To make me feel comfortable she then emailed me a copy of her Passport and UK Visa which she alleged she had obtained with the money I had previously sent. In further telephone conversations she cried to me down the phone about being upset that we could not meet, indeed she expressed similar sentiments in her emails. As a result of a further telephone conversation on the 5th January 2004 I sent her 3100Euros which she acknowledged recepit of and in an email stated was just a loan to her and would be repayed when we met in London on the 7th January 2004. Needless to say she did not appear and I have ben unable to conatct her by email. Please see extracts of emails sent to me by this Female?From: carpediem1980 ( 


Hi, I have come across your ad and I couldn't stop myself from writing you. Yo  seem to be so sweet and charming...  I'd love to get to know you better. I bet you get hundreds messages a day but hopefully, you'll find time to have a look at my ad. You might find it interesting? Svetlana I must tell you that I'm seriously attracted to you with such a wonderful feeling in my heart and I do not think our age difference might be a problem. As long as it is not a problem for you, it is definitely not a problem for me. I have always been attracted to men older than me.  I can give you my cousin's phone. It is 7 902 84 12553. You see, I have neither computer, nor phone at home. I normally come to my cousin to use it. I am very often here as we are very good friends. She is one year older than me. By the way, I have attached a picture of us together in this e-mail. You know, my dearest, I am grateful to you for the opportunity you have given me to know you and maybe some day we can develop it into something beautiful and real, something long-lasting... I feel it is time for me to settle down. I am tired of being alone, I am tired of lonely nights and days.. You have also asked for my address. Here it is Russia 620 000 Ekaterinburg Blukhera Street, 55a - 248 Svetlana Smirnova This is my home address darling. I think it would have been unfair, if I had given you someone else's. Billy, I trust you enough.  My sweetest, you know, I keep thinking about you all the time. I just cannot get you out of my mind. You are all the time with me in my heart and on my mind. That is such a strange feeling. I have never felt anything like that before and it is a little strange to some extent but anyway, I do not care. Though, it is so frustrating it is so complicated to meet each other. I wish I could have that money so that I could fly to you right away, my sweetheart. By the way, I have had a couple of pics scanned for you. Hopefully, you will like them my sweetest.  There is only one type of visa which is granted to any tourist willing to visit your country. It is a six-month multi visa. It costs 520 euro. Darling, I know it is a lot of money. But I cannot find any other way. If you come to visit me here in my city, that is going to be definitely great. But my parents will not let me stay with you, say, for a night at the hotel and something like that. The place of meeting is not important for me but you see, I do not want my parents to get involved into it. You know, I do not like to be watched and I am sure you too. As for my ad on, I deleted it over there. There is no need for me to write to someone else. What for? I have met you Billy. I do like you very much and I hope with all my heart that our relationship might develop into something really beautiful and long lasting. I have always been a one man woman and I am not used to seeing several men at a time. Certainly, I have no boy friend here in Russia. If I have had a boy friend here, I would have never put my ad on the site. It would have been unfair, I think. As for how I spend the nights, I do not go out too often. I like going to the night club or something like this from time to time and in a good company only.  There is a lot of money involved to have our meeting arranged and you know that I cannot afford it unfortunately. You might feel pretty uncomfortable with me and this situation. After all, you never know who is sitting behind the computer. So, I thought that it would be better if I could send you a copy of my Russian ID so that you could be 100% sure as to who I really am and that I am for real.  I am looking forward to your e-mail.  Love and tender kisses, Svetlana  have got a great news for you, my darling. I have been to the bank today and got the money. I have also been to the agency today and applied to have both a passport and a visa issued. I have been told that my passport will be approved on Thursday. So, I will go there again on Thursday and I think they will tell me when my visa will be issued. By the way, my dearest, could you let me know for what date I have to book the tickets? It is important for me to know before Thursday since on this day I will also have to make some arrangements concerning my tickets. So, hopefully, you will tell me my darling. Billy, I feel so happy today that we have started arranging our meeting. You have made me so happy and I will always be grateful to you for that. I promised to give you my flight details on the phone. So, here they are  Moscow (DME) Terminal 1 20.45 January 7 London (LHR) Terminal 4 21.55 January 7 I am coming to you by British Airways, my love. But I have got an idea Billy. You know I have got all my papers approved. I mean visa and passport. What if I make the copies of my papers and send them to you. You will see that I spent the money you sent me on my trip only and that my intentions are for real. I do not know if you accept it or not but I do not know what else I can do. I just love you so much Billy and now I am so afraid of losing you forever. Yours only, Svetlana I know you will not believe me but it is 100% true. Anyway, it is up to you to decide Billy and from now on, I am not going to insist on anything at all and try to justify myself for something I have never had any intentions to do with you. I do apologize that I have failed to put your mind at rest. Do you think I have painted my papers by myself or what?  hope you have celebrated a good New Year. Thank you very much for the letters and for the presents you bought for me. You know, this is the first time, when I do not know what to tell you. I have got   birthday tomorrow but I am not going to celebrate it. You know, I will be at my cousin's tomorrow at 8pm and if you want, you can call me. I am not asking you to talk to me for half an hour or so since it might be very expensive for you and I do not want you to waste even more money on me. That would be pleasant if you could wish me happy birthday. That is all I want. Actually, you are the only person I want to talk to on my birthday. Strange but true.  Sincerely, Svetlana

Hello my darling, You know, it is the second time when I have no idea what to say. I still cannot believe it is happening and finally, all is ok between you and me and with my travel arrangements. I still cannot believe that tomorrow I will be with you for real Billy. That is the most incredible thing!!! Darling, I have been to the bank today and I got the money. It is in a safe place now. So, tomorrow I will be leaving and it is so good!!! Darling, you have asked me to do a couple of things for you in one of the e-mails. So, here is my cousin's address: Russia 620 012 Ekaterinburg Sovetskaya Street, 345 - 21 Voropaeva Marina ( that is my cousin's name ) Speaking about that money, I do appreciate that you could trust me enough, my love to help me. It means a lot to me really and I will always be grateful to you for that my love. I will also for sure retutn you the whole amount once I am in London with you Billy. I took that money as a loan and I will for sure return it to you tomorrow. You know, I have no idea what else I might say but I am sure of one thing. I can feel it in my heart and in my soul. I love you Billy and I am sure we will have a great future together. Actually, that is all I keep dreaming of right away.  I love you with all my heart and soul!!! See you tomorrow, darling! Yours only, Svetlana

Vera Pachka (Zelenodolsk, Russia)

My name is Jim, single male resident of USA. Contact originated on Scammer had a profile under name of 'Narayana' listed as resident of Walnut CA. I was contacted by 'Narayana' in the first instance via the agency mail system. After giving a negative interest response I was again contacted via address for one letter then all subsequent letters via I won't include the letters as they are identical to the letters reported on this site by Darryl from the scammer with the name 'Elvira' from Kirov, Russia. The photos used are different from the one sent by Daryll for the 'Elvira' scam. Some of the pics even appear to be of different women - poor quality so it is hard to tell. The letters are 'wooden' and the writer does not talk to you but makes a lot of effort letting you know how much you mean to them. I had twigged by letter 4 where it was going and I did not send any money. The request for $750 dollars led to me tell the scammer I would call the embassy in US to make enquiries as to why the cost was so high. The following e-mail is the final reply.


Hi my lovely Jim. I am very glad to your letter, it very gentle andis filled by love. Dear mine I very wait for our meeting and I thinkof you each day. I want that you knew that I am very glad to ouracquaintance. that concerning the visa. If to do her through travelagency, yes 720 it is expensive, but if to do the visa in theindividual order, it will cost to me 100 $, but it will take 4 monthsand will give very small percent, that I shall receive the visa. Andthe travel company guarantees to me reception of the visa on 95 %. Youunderstand? Gently kiss you. I love you. yours Vera

I informed the American Singles website and also the yandex and yahoo postmasters of the scam.
