contacted by Julia via AmericanSingles.com. Her profile on the site
stated that she was from Topeka, Kansas.
In all I have recieved 6 emails from Julia. I recieved the final

Again thanks for such a wonderful site. -Richard
She the same women pictured in the Olga Mikisheva
story.Olga Mikisheva Saratov,Russia.
I am a single American man I was contacted on an American singles website named: loveandseek.com
The communication lasted approx. 3 weeks she proclaimed he love for me in a
week! She hinted she needed money for a mobile phone after a couple of
letters she asked if I could help her pay for the visa $250 and pass
port $79 to send it via western union (she seen a commerical) and she said
she would receive the visa in two weeks one that would allow her to marry
while she was in the USA. She was creating urgency through her emails the
sooner she had the money the sooner we would be together! Good thing for
this website because of the information on this site I was able to confirm
my suspension and whated to do my part and share my story/experience.
Here is a copy of the letter requesting the money:
Hello my love XXXXXXX!
I am happy to receive your letter. Today in the morning as I spoke, I went to visa agency.
I asked about moving to your country and I got the answer that I need the
visa, foreign passport and some other documents for registration.
We have defined a type of the visa and it's type which allows to marry in
the future This visa allows me to be in your country during 90 days. I think, that it will be enough to know each other and in a consequence to
marry. If we marry during validity of the visa, I can remain with you on more time.
If we do not marry, I should leave your country on the termination of
validity of the visa.
I asked about prices and was very surprised, first I ask about time of
performance. and they said that there is many people who wants to make
documents and leave the country Therefore, if I wish to fly in the country earlier, I should write the
application and pay the visa on next week. Then the visa will be ready during 2 weeks.
If I can not write the application and pay the visa on next week, that I should wait manufacture of the visa during 2-3 months.
I was very much surprised with the prices of services. The visa costs approximately 250 dollars, and the passport and necessary
documents cost 79 dollars. It's make me little suppressed and disappointed. I don't have so much now.
I was make application but I must pay for it. I counted my sum and I found out that I have only about fifty dollars and my
wages will be not soon.
I asked my friends about helping me and they said that have not at the
present moment. If you can help me money I shall be grateful to you. And we can be soon together.
I have found out, that is company which make remittances worldwide.it's western union.
I remember that I saw advertising this company on tv. I take a directory book and found the address of it and it's not far from
me. I went there, and I asked them about service. They said that sender must go to the western union, give them information:
the name and last name of receiver, country they make transfer and bring the ten
digits secret code to sender. The receiver must know ten digits for receiving money.
They say that the branches of it must be everywhere worldwide. Here is the information about me:
Address of branch of western union:
Alpha - bank
The address: street. Moscowskaja, 70
I must know your full name, full address. You must know that I decide to ask you about it because I love you and trust
you very much. I decide to come to you because I feel this way and you are very necessary
to me, decided to come to the unfamiliar country and I never be outside my country.
But I decided to do it because now you are part of my life and I trust you
I think you trust me too and love me too. You must inform me the closest airport to you I'll ask the help with ticket
from my relatives. Please, don't forget to tell me the closest airport.
My love I need 300 dollars I think you will help me because we found our
love and we want to meet closer. You must inform me ten digits and I can receive it.
You must know we must hurry because I can receive the documents soon, and if we lost the time it is necessary for a long time.
Now it's very difficultly to receive the visa to your country, and it's
but if I pay now, I think I do it. I think about sense of money, and I'm very sad if this paper can prevent
people to meet each other. In most cases the money play a main role in life but it's not right! I'm
sure. And the quantity of money was and will not important to me, I always not aspired to material enrichment and don't search specially for
rich male. I appreciate human qualities and relations, and I love you Anthony!!!
I love you all my heart, I want to be with you now. I want to be with you
forever. If it's mutually we will be very happy in our life. I think you love me too and we will meet very soon.
You are my love, my Angel. My heart is yours. Probably, you will not trust me after that the letter.
Probably, you will decide that I am a deceiver. But I can repeat to you, all my words, all my ideas, all my feelings to you
is a true. And as though the destiny has not turned to us, as though you have not
decided, I shall love all the same you. And I shall prove to you, that it is not
simple words. I'm waiting good news from you, I hope everything will be all right and we
will be together soon.
Every day I think about our meeting, and I think it's real, we must use this
chance of destiny. I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!! Always your love Olga
Her first letter to me:
I have received your letter today and I am very glad that you have written
to me. I doubted that you will answer my letter, this usual business is possible to
communicate with the help e-mail for you, I for the first time do it therefore I is a little confused.
I do not know from what to start to speak difficultly with the person and to
not see his eyes, gestures, a smile, I shall send you the photo together with
this letter, I hope that it is pleasant to you.
To me of 27 years and I was not married and I have no children, almost all
my girlfriends have children though we coevals. I want to create family and to
have children, I think that all women want it. Probably I am mistaken, but I think so.
In Russia I have not found male with which I could live life, it is possible
here them simply was not present. I have decided to try to find the destiny
far from a native land, it is possible you my destiny, what you think of it?
I want to offer you friendship, and it is possible later our attitudes will
develop in strong feeling. I hope that it will take place. I many times was mistaken and now it is difficult for me to begin new
attitudes because I am afraid of a deceit and lie.
I ask that you gave me a word that will not deceive me, and I shall answer you same
I am not able to deceive people, therefore I want to inform you that I wait
from our attitudes. I want to get acquainted with decent male and to create with him family if
our attitudes will be not such warm that I hope for friendship with you.
But if you want to write to me only for entertainment and you are not
interested with serious attitudes inform me about it at once, and we shall not waste
time vainly. Now I want to tell to you about me directly, I was born and have grown in
Saratov, my childhood till 8 years was similar to a fairy tale, I was happy
at me there were parents which loved me very strongly and I did not think that
soon all will change, I perfectly remember summer day why that to me was
terrible, I have approached to mum and has asked her, MUM YOU WILL NOT THROW ME?
Mum has answered CERTAINLY IS NOT PRESENT, WE ALWAYS SHALL BE TOGETHER. After that
mum has gone to shop and she was brought down with the automobile... I could not understand when father spoke me that mum will not come any more,
She spoke with me some hours back and after that to me have told that mum
never will come, it not seemed to me the biggest deceit, probably therefore I can
not have the attitude with the person which me deceives. After death of mum in my education daddy began to be engaged, he helped me
in all, I never can tell about him something bad. Another on his place could
omit hands and look as the ground leaves from under legs. But my daddy military
it is possible his character has helped him to sustain. He strict but fair always
tried to help me with all there were it lessons or attitudes with
girlfriends or even friends.
At school I had many friends, I was the sociable girl and studied it is not
poorly possible even to tell that well, I was very diligent and in it too a
merit of my father. I without problems have arrived in the Saratov state university, I have not
casually decided to become the expert of botany, I long thought where to me
to go, and have decided that I shall treat plants. I have finished to study in 2000 and right after it I began to work,
probably you can guess on what specialization I work? I shall give you the help, almost everyone has a joke about my trade.
The joke about how I try to bring up on trees of a bulb. (Smile) I work in a botanical garden, as the selector of plants.
Well, I shall finish the letter. I could write to you more about the life.
But I am a little tired. As I have not enough practice in the English
language. But I think, that if we shall continue to find out each other more
in due course I shall find out the English language more. With hope to receive your reciprocal letter.
Your new familiar Olga
Apakova (Surgut, Russia)
I appreciate this list compiled and contributed by the general public and this website. I started receiving emails from this person from a personal ad on yahoo. I never sent her money and the letters were very typical of the letters already posted. No personal questions were ever answered and the letters were very cookie cutter templates of others.
Letter Dated Feb 4, 2005
Hello dear Jon.
Thank you for your letter. I like to talk with you and I hope we'll
talk even more. I don't know when you receive my letters but I write it on day time,
what is time difference between us? I think about 8-10 hours, what do
I guess about your interest to my life, dreams and opinions, so I'll
tell you some about me. I have not been married and I don't have any children, but I have dream
to find the loving man, and to create a family. I'll give this person all my love and tenderness. So I want to have a
whole family, my husband I can trust in everything and he also can trust me.
I think, that relations, such as love, basically should base on trust.
What you think of it? I like to communicate and consequently, at me it is a lot of friends.
But I can not name all their good friends, at me only one good girlfriend.
But for me it is necessary not only this big company, but also the
person with which I can divide difficult and happy minutes of my life and
present him caress and care. I had sad experience with the one male. He deceived me with other
woman, and I was disappointed in our males. I not want, that it to repeat. My day begins that I wake up early and I
go for work. When I come back from work, it becomes already dark. When I come home,
I like something to prepare. The ambassador, I lie down to sleep and I dream of the prince.
I feel very much weariness here from a daily life, the life in Russia
is very difficult and I sometimes is very much tired from it. In the advanced countries any worker can go to have rest in a holiday,
to receive force for the further work, but in us too small income, therefore it is inaccessible to us.
It is very pleasant, when know, which for many kilometers you have the
person who estimates, understands you. You agree with my idea? Unfortunately I have no opportunity to buy a
computer and to place home phone because the computer costs approximately
800-1000 $, and installation of a domestic phone number - 300 $, they - very big
money for me, and I cannot allow it for independent. I very much love the work because I should communicate with people
much. But in Russia not enough such work which could suit that person on
which he works.
I very much frequently get tired, but for me it not a flour. Still I like to listen to music. I do not know which, probably I listen
to music on mood.Basically I listen to radio. I like to keep up the figure. I love the
body. I have good education and international profession, dream to have happy family and big heart, so I'd like to find second
half of my heart abroad. I with impatience shall wait for yours next letters.
Yours faithfully Anastasia.

Now about travel to you, it is difficult to receive the visa to the
lonely Russian women The majority of people of Russia are compelled to wait
approval of the visa a lot of time, from 6 months about one year
In some cases, it is especial to girls, refuse, but due to my familiar
(she works in embassy of Moscow) it easily. Are necessary to pay registration of necessary
documents only If you really seriously concern to that that I have visited you, I
can settle these formalities Whether I should know you are capable help me
with the finance for the visa and air tickets? Inform me the closest
international airport, I want to look flights and cost of air tickets.
I remember, that Svetlana spoke, for registration of the visa necessary
time from 2 - 4 weeks. Svetlana has learned how much cost a visa and a foreign passport too.
She have called in embassy and there have said to her that it will be better for
us, if I will have the visa of a tourist. This tourist visa B-2, the visitor visa will
valid during six months. On this type of visa I'll can travel till USA without any
The price of this visa, as Svetlana was informed in embassy, is 110 US
dollars. Besides the process of the registration of the visa costs 55
US dollars. Svetlana also has taken an interest about other 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.
She thought, that it is the best variant for us, but her in Embassy have said that this visa costs more
expensively and visa's registration costs a lot of money. It's around 650 US
dollars and the registration of the visa will during seven months, it is
very long and expensive! From it because the tourist visa B-2 is the bitterest variant than visa
of bride now for us my love Jon! My love, I want to ask you one thing, I will need to ask
your help with a financial charges for the getting all necessary documents for
my coming to you. As probably, may be you know an economic situation in
our country, it's simply awful.
Our government explains it to those that simply they don't have a
money, it's a difficult financial situation, and they don't have
a recourses on the salary for the any kind of the job in total.
My dearest, my love Jon, I have a great desire to come to you, to see
you at last and only recourses separate us from each another. I love you so much, honey, and I
don't want to lose you. Nobody can help me with it. Of course, I asked my
mum and my friends to help me with this expense on the necessary
documents for my coming, but my mother and my friends doesn't have such
money though they would like to help us.
My dearest Jon, in general, I'll need for 400 US dollars. It's certainly large money, you probably have thought what
is it more than the total price of the visa and visa's registration,
but I will must to get the foreign passport too of course the price of
which is 60 US dollars. Also I will need to pay for medical exams, it will be 50 dollars.
And of course I will need to pay for the coming from Surgut to Moscow,
I have learned about the price of the airplane ticket Surgut - Moscow,
it will be 2500.00 Russian rubles or it is around 85 US dollars. Svetlana will try to find
the cheaper prices of the air ticket for going to you.
She said me, that will try to find a cheaper air tickets! I so happy
from this so happy news! But now, at first, my angel, I will must begin a process of the
registration of all necessary documents, in total I will need 400 US dollars.
My dearest Jon, if you will send me this so necessary recourses for
this documents, it will be better to do through a system of Western Union
Svetlana trust this system Western Union, as She have said me, Western
Union is the fastest and reliable system of remittances worldwide!
Also Svetlana said me, you will need in some detailes from me, you will
need my full name, and address of the nearest bank where is situated
the system of Western Union in Surgut:
Post code - 628405
Street Dzerginskogo, 11
The receiver must know ten digits for receiving money (Money Transfer
Control Number (MTCN)), your full name and full home address. My love I need
your help, I think you will help me. Soon we will be together and it will be
wonderful. If we fated to become single whole, I believe that it will be.
Our hearts are like two great oceans. They are vast and very deep yet calm an
peaceful on the surface. Our feeling run very deep and they are very strong.
Sometimes we get afraid we will be pulled under by the current. I dream that
our two oceans will meet in a powerfull wave that will shake the very earth.
And when all is done there will be one vast beautiful ocean, beautiful,
powerful and forever...one heart, one ocean. Jon you have given me much
more than you can realize. You are my prayer, my shelter from hopelessness
and despair, only you can keep the spark in my soul burning bright.
Write back as soon as possible. I'm waiting for your letter.
And I'm thinking about you. Kiss you. Yours for ever, Anastasia.
I am a 58 year old Caucasian American man, currently separated. I was
first contacted by Tatyana through Yahoo Personals. Almost
immediately, red flags went up. She had no personal profile or photo
on the site, and due to our age difference and the distance between
us, I thought it highly improbable that her contact with me was
legitimate. Despite my suspicions, I decided to give it a chance
anyhow. Her first direct email to me was extraordinary in length and
detail. She attached her photo, which was a portrait shot of a very
lovely young woman. Admittedly, this was all a great boost to my ego,
although it struck me as odd that she asked for my EXACT date of birth
when she already knew my true age. I replied with answers to many of
her questions about me, but avoided providing my birth date. When her
second email arrived (last night), it too was lengthy and detailed,
and surprisingly contained a casual reference to marriage. She did
not, however, acknowledge any of the things I told her about myself in
my email to her. I had a limited awareness of Russian Bride scams, so
I conducted a bit of Internet research to find specifics on how they
were currently being performed. There were few surprises, except for
the sheer volume of these scams that are out there. I even checked
some of the black list archives, but found no reference to Tatyana in
I mulled over the situation until this morning, and concluded that I
was merely stroking my own ego by allowing her to lead me down this
path. I sent her an email thanking her for her interest, but explained
that the prospect of a realistic relationship was unlikely. I told her
that I wanted to end our correspondence, and I wished her luck.
I also notified Yahoo Personals that I suspected Tatyana represented a
Russian Bride scam. Based on Yahoos policies, however, I will not be
informed of any action they may take. In an effort to rationalize my
decision, I performed a bit more research. I found the Women Russia
web site, and decided to peruse the black list archives. Not
surprisingly, on Page 334, John had reported an identical experience
with the same Tatyana of Kazan on February 01, 2005.
I was mildly disappointed to find that Tatyana's letters to me were
carbon copies of her letters to John. She also sent me the same
photos. The only differences I noted were her stated age 26 with
John, 35 with me, and that she liked John's structure but my profile.
It did, however, make me more comfortable with my decision to stop
corresponding with her. I'm now convinced that I avoided considerable
emotional trauma and personal expense. Copies of her emails to me, and
the photos that were attached, follow in chronological order. Tatyana
used the email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, which differs from the
one she used with John.
Here is the first, and only, message I received from her on Yahoo
Personals. There was no screen name. She was identified only as a

How are you? Probably, if you have guessed, this is Tatyana :) I'm
very glad to get your answer, Dave! First of all, please let me
apologize for the delay in my response to you, Dave, but I was busy in
last time. I'm happy so much that you
have written me, believe me, Dave! Also, I'm hoping that my e-mail was
so big surprise for you too, really? But most important, I would like
to say to you that I have decided to write you through the Internet
thanking to my best girlfriend Natasha. My girlfriend Natasha have met
a good man through the Internet from Germany, Berlin City, by the the
Internet too. Her boyfriend is Frank. Natasha and Frank are very happy
together! I see that they are happy so much together, and I have
decided to find a man from other country too, as Natasha did it :)
Possible, you can ask me, why I didn't find a russian man? I
will be very serious, I will answer to you, that I had a boyfriend
from Russia from my City, I loved him very much, but he has thrown me
in last time. He found an other girl, as I have understood. Also
I have seen that he liked to drink an alcohol very very much, as many
men in Russia do it, may be you know about it. I don't like this when
men like to drink so much as my last boyfriend did it! I am
non-drinking and non-smoking girl! Simply, I don't have a harmful
habits! Also I want to say that on the words of my girlfriend Natasha,
the men from other countries, especially from Germany and USA, are
very good, and they can to appreciate and to respect women as
considerable men too. It's the opinion of Natasha, and I want to agree
with Natasha completely. Natasha has chosen her boyfriend Frank from
Germany because she know German language a little. I don't speak
German 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,
Dave. Well, Dave, let me to tell to you about me more... As I said you
earlier, I'm 35 years old, my growth 5 ' 6, and I weigh about 57 kg, I
am "Scorpion" on Zodiac, I was born on November, 20, 1969 :)
And when you was born? What's an exact date of your Happy Birthday?
Tell me, ok? I'm White Russian girl on nationality. On religion, I'm
Christian (Russian Ortodox), and I believe in God Jesus. I have never
been married and I don't have any kids, I am a single girl. I'm a
sensitive, a kind-hearted, a thoughtful and easily amused. On opinion
of my close friends and relatives, I'm a kind, jolly, clever and
intelligent, purposeful, sociable. About my City where am I live? :) I
would like to tell to you that I live in Kazan City here in Russia.
Kazan is situated around 1,000 kilometers from our Russian Capital
Moscow City. The time zone of Kazan is GMT+6. Our City Kazan is one of
the beautiful cities of Russia, I like my wonderful City very much.
There are many beautiful streets, squares and other sights in our
city. But it's so cold here, the frosts force the people to go on the
streets in the warm clothes, and what about your weather? Is it for
cold or warmly? Most of all I want to say to you that my favorite
season is the summer! I like when the sun shine on the streets, it are
many votes of birds, it's romantically so much. And do you like
summer? :) Also I would like to tell to you about my education. I have
studied in a Kazan Polytechnical University. I have ended the
university in 1996. Also I want to say to you that I have learned the
English Language when I have studied in the university, I can speak
English without any problems, I think so... But I can see that I'm
orthographic mistakes, I think so, I hope that you'll can to
understand my English without any problems? Really, Dave? Please, tell
me about this in your next e-mails, ok? Also I would like to
tell to you that after the finishing of the university, I have
gotten a diploma of a speciality "The Book Keeping And
Audit". But unfortunately I didn't need my education yet, because
here in Russia, as in many other countries, it's very difficult to
find a good job on
a good speciality. Now I'm working as a waiter in the bar. I like to
work here in our bar, and our visitors are a good clients. Also I want
to say to you, that I have an access to Internet by the computer which
is situated in an cabinet of our boss here in our bar, because I don't
have a computer in my home, and I have asked the sanction at our
director for my using of the Internet, and he permitted me to use the
computer in a free time from my job. Wowww, I have written so much! I
didn' t think that I can to write about myself so much, really.
Probably, I'm finishing my e-mail to you. Dave, I'll be grateful so
much, if you'll write me about yourself so much, as I did it. I would
like, if you'll tell me, for
example, about your family, is your family large? About your
city where are you living, I have never been in other countries and in
USA too, and I'll be glad to know about your country. Ok, let me to
finish my e-mail, I hope to see your answer soon! I'm attaching

factory. My sister Katya is a student of the university, she is
studing on the lawyer, and Masha is a schoolgirl. Our family are

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. Also I want to tell
that 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. As already I spoke to you earlier, I work as a waiter in the
bar here in Kazan City. It's a perfect and cosy bar. My job is very
pleasant for me, people in our city are kind, and visitors of the cafe

during two month in Germany. And then they have came to Russia, to
Kazan City too, simply, Natasha said to Frank that she have missed
