Anna Lapushka (Jaransk, Russia)

First of all I would like to say what a brilliant web site this is. Well done. I would like to bring the following person to your attention. This female sent me 13 photographs in total. I have only sent some of these to you. If you require them i can send them all. Other people need to be made aware of these pictures of this certain female from Russia. I would be very grateful if you are able to publish them all on your black list scam web site along with the letters, making other people not becoming victims and departing with their money because they will not see this girl, she has no intentions of seeing you and you might as well give your money to a recorgnised charity for a much better, honest and worthy cause. Just to let you know that I realised this was a scam early on and wanted to see how far she would go. At no point did I have any thought to send her money. On 16/03/05 Anna or someone stating that were Anna from Russia called me on my telephone. I heard a males voice in the background which i got the feeling was helping this female. This males voice sounded very good English indeed. I firmly believe that this female is working with others, maybe a scamming agency. She mentioned about not having enough money for visa etc because she does not earn alot and when i asked her what job she does, she pretended she could not hear me, when i repeated myself three times the line went dead. Of course she did not call back and i have no intentions of contacting her and she or they are probably moving on to their next target. I have found this same person on other scam list including yours to have used the following names. Elena (Astrakhan, Russia), Elena Ushakova (Moscow oblast, Russia), Elena, Kristina Gautallina (Yoshkar-Ola, Russia), and of course the one she used when she contacted me

Hi I am a 32 year old male from UK. I need to bring the following to your attention. This female from Russia she is certainly a scammer. She contacted me through a UK based dating web site. Her profile disappeared within a few dates from contacting me which I thought was strange but I played along with her to see if she was genuine but I did not raise my hopes too high and my initial instincts were correct. Her email address she used was This is her profile that she gave me: Name: Anna Lapushka. Age 29 years old. (July 7th 2005 she will be 30) She stated that she is cancer on the zodiac, maybe it is me being too cynical but I am also cancer so she may be using the same zodiac sign as me. Address: Jaransk. She would not tell her full address or any more details. She has no home phone and also stated that she goes to girlfriends house to use her phone. I get the impression that she is working someone else because she kept mentioning we in her letters and she kept avoiding my questions when asking her about her girlfriends name. What was so secret about her girlfriend? She stated that she lives with her mum. She has no brothers and sisters. Her mum forbids talking to her father who threw her mum out when she was pregnant with Anna? Anna mentioned very early on that she wants a family and husband. She also has a black cat so some photos of her may be with this cat. She said that she was a kindergarten teacher, which I found this hard to believe (My instincts again) She ignored all my questions about her job when I tried to find out more. As you can see from her letters she likes to try and be romantic, using nice words and poems etc but in a way she tries far too hard, far too early in writing to you. Thank you for your time in reading. This is a girl that does not even know what i look like yet she fell so madly in love with me. Before she sent her last email dated 16/03/05 I said that I will visit her in Russia and asked her where she lives and which airport do I need to go to and how far from airport are you? You have seen her reply, at no point did I mention about money,passport, visa and medical insurance. If I was going to Russia then I would book everything from my country myself anyway. Silly girl. 

Letter one - 02/03/2005 
Hello my dear friend. I am very glad that you have responded to my short message to you. Really pleasantly that I have interested you. As you know from my short letter of me to call Anna! I hope to you this name is pleasant. Now to me of 30 years! I hope my age of you I do not confuse also to you approaches! I was born in city under name Jaransk. probably you did not hear about this city because it is small city which is located in a southwest of Russia! You may take a map of Russia and try to find my city. he is on river Volga so it will be easier to you than him to find. My city small but very beautiful. The beauty is created with set of greens and water. I have received secondary education too in this city. After the ending 11 Classes I have left to act in Kazan in university and have successfully acted on pedagogical faculty! On a speciality I the philologist! After the successful ending of university I have come back home and has tried to find work on a speciality. But as city at us small I can not find anything suitable on my speciality. In a result I was employed in a kindergarten by the tutor where I work now. The truth I dream of the best work but it is necessary to be content with that that is. You probably know that in Russia a problem with workplaces. I have slightly run forward and have overlooked to tell about my childhood. At school I studied perfectly and all Spoke that I the gifted child. I was very quick child and inquisitive. When I went to school I I went to musical school played on a guitar and a saxophone. But now I have already lost all skills though sometimes I can execute something. Except for that I actively went in for sports. In the winter I loved a ski and skates. And in the summer I liked to float, in university I to be engaged began professionally navigation and tennis. The first at me turned out better. I have many diplomas and letters on navigation. But all of them now lay in a case. You are interested probably by that why I have addressed to the Internet to find the partner in life? Simply strangely enough it sounds but I could not grow fond of the person in Russia! I had many partners but with anybody at me has failed to get serious relations. I have girlfriend which too has found the love in the Internet and she has advised me to try. And it at me the first experience and I hope that all to turn out I always I hope for the best. Already began to eat you have answered me and you have liked me! We shall look that will be farther. And why you search for the girl in the Internet? You like Russian girls and why? You had serious relations earlier? Probably you were married? You have children? And in general as you concern to children? I very much love children therefore I work in a kindergarten. Though my dream to work at school the teacher of a history. As you probably interests on my intentions how many are serious? And that I want further? I in general very serious person also do not joke with such things as love a marriage and so forth. I am going to construct serious relations and it is possible to leave for the husband further! In a word I search for the big love! Probably she still exists in our world where so much bad. And if she is that I necessarily her Finde. Who knows probably we with you we shall go far in our relations. Who knows probably you and there is my prince on a white horse. Now I want to learn what your intentions and that you want from relations? You want a marriage? Family and children? Or you search simply for friendship? What the marriage means for you? For me the marriage is the most important and serious step in life and he needs to be made safely and is considered. Many people concern not seriously to this and as a result get divorced. I do not want to make such mistakes. Now I live with my mum which call Nadezhda or am simple Nadya! She works as the cook at school where I studied. She perfectly is going and has learned me to make masterpieces of cookery. Daddy at me is not present and there was no he has thrown my mum when she was pregnant. And my mum forbids to me to speak about him. As you can see it was necessary she to my mums is not sweet also does not want that with me has taken place as. Somehow at us conversation was and she has told that even if to me will come she will not leave her against if only I was in reliable and loving hands. On this note I want to finish this letter to you. Sincerely I hope that you will answer and that I have liked you. It will be pleasant for me to continue with you correspondence! Yours faithfully Anna from Russia!

LETTER THREE - 06/03/05
Thank for the next good letter, was very pleasant to receive from you him again. I read him with interest. How you in general as your mood? Today at us cloudy weather and behind a window is not present the sun. Very much it is pleasant to me when since morning in a window the bright sun shines. I am filled with energy for all day. Today I will not have not enough energy. Yesterday I have decided to make general cleaning of a house. Slightly it was necessary to tinker but in a result all house shone from cleanliness. I in general love cleanliness and always I keep up her. In the evening has gone to walk and has met friends we send on coast Volga and long there sat and talked at all have not noticed as has darkened. By the way I have told him about you have told that have got acquainted with you in the Internet and now we are copied. I hope anything in it is not present that I have told them about us? hey asked on you and that much that I knew I him have told. One my girlfriend has told: " you will leave abroad and you will forget us... "But I have calmed her and have told that I still do not gather anywhere and what to forget I nobody I want. How you have lead your yesterday's evening? Today we with mum shall go to a garden there it is necessary to be cleaned not much the ambassador of assembly of a crop. I want to tell that I am very glad that our relations promote also we continue correspondence. For this time I have already enough learned about you and very interesting person seems to me that you. I hope you too find me interesting? If it so that I am glad. It is difficult enough to learn persons through letters. It only at first sight. You do not see the person you only read his lines. It is similar to appointment in blind. But something prompts me that you fair and sincere and that that you write it from heart. I in general very trustful and simple person and was easy to offend me. But I that might not make with it I have got used to trust people. Dear (I hope you will not be against if I shall so name you), I would like to ask you that involves you in the woman that you from her wait? How you represent the woman of the dream? And in general how many at you was women in your life? With how many girls you correspond now in the Internet. I can tell you fairly that I write you to one. It would be pleasant to learn the same. How you understand a word love? For me love this treasured magic word. Love persons this biggest happiness which may to be. And if it is mutual love that it simply a limit of happiness. Love as sweet fruit of him you eat also to you it would be desirable still. So the love is necessary always. If there is a love means there will be a family if there is a family then there will be children if there will be children means there will be a happiness. Family it not only a cell of a society it also a level of development of the person. All of what I dream it that a near the loved husband the house children and a cup of hot tea since morning brought loved in bed was. In general I like men which are able to look after the girl. It too is important and pleasant for the woman. We in city would not have such men which skilfully looked after. Probably certainly also is but I did not notice it. Still I should you tell that I an early bird I always very much early rise. Usually hours in 5 or a floor the sixth I already on legs. Early to rise me mum has learned. We have such saying " who early there is to that a god submits " you heard this saying. To me intresting to learn as will be farther that at us will be farther? Probably we shall grow fond each other and we shall be happy? Anyway I can tell that you very much like me I see in you of the light person. You not such as all. Though identical people at all it does not happen. Road and you like to travel? I at all do not know that this such because never did not go anywhere far from a house. Probably it so is interesting to visit other countries other cultures. Is much in the world interesting that I did not see. My dreams is a creation of good family! I want, that I was happy with the husband! I want, that in family with my future husband there was a understanding and calmness! The purpose in my life - to become happy and worthy respect! I search for the love in other country because I had no happiness with men in the country! And I think, that to me without a difference where the person whom I love lives!!! Also I do not hope to see at all. But who knows that will be farther. I think on it I shall finish this letter and I shall wait your answer dear. The most gentle words yours from me and the best wishes. Yours Anna!

LETTER FOUR - 07/03/2005 
I am glad that at you all well. It is very pleasant to receive your new letter. At me all is good! Mood excellent. Weather too today pleases an eye. Let not so warmly but nevertheless the sun shines. How your family? There was something new? Today at me extremely romantic mood. I all am simple very joyful even mum am surprised why I today such happy. I in general at heart very romantic person. I like walks under the moon supper at candles breakfast in bed and so on. Many inquiries may seem to you that at me. It not so I in general very simple girl also do not demand much. I think that the present woman should be a romantic degree in what that even slightly. I as like men romanticism but not too. If the man it is overflown with romanticism it already boringly! It is interesting to me to learn your opinion why many pairs converge and live together though they are absolutely not similar and at there is nothing general(common)? Concerning it I think the following if two persons are similar against each other that him it will be not interesting together and they will miss. And if two persons with different characters and the different points of view on the world that will be interesting to them together. It when two persons the man and the woman supplement an ideal combination each other. Such ?????? their relations are harmonious also them it is possible to name ideal pair! I sincerely believe that in our relations there is a highlight. Gradually me begins to draw to you. I am opened before you in each letter all more. Because I trust you is ready to tell to you all secrets which am at ??? in heart. I hope you too with me are frank. I want to talk to you on a frank theme of sexual relations between the man and the woman. I think we adult people and it is necessary for speaking on this theme if we further want to develop our relations. How you concern to sex? What it is important for you in it? How you count what role concerning pair plays sex? I think that it is very important detail of relations. But it is not pleasant to me when the man begins to impose sexual relations. Though in general I think that the man should play here a leaging role and should conduct the girl behind myself. he should gain the loved woman! To make so that it did not look only as satisfaction of own needs(requirements). he should let know to the girl that first of all he wants to give pleasure to the girl. And then she will answer him same! This my opinion and how you think? As I would like to ask you you like to make Compliments? I very much like when to me make Compliments. As I love politeness. You the amorous person you easily fall in love? You had sometime love at first sight? About myself I can not tell that I the amorous person I always all over again look narrowly at the person I shall find out him from different directions. The main thing to try to understand that at this person in soul. I never look at appearance or age. On what you look when get acquainted with the girl? What the girl should make that you have begun to trust her? I want to tell to you one history from my life. Once my familiar has acquainted me with one guy. It was one and a half year back. I began to notice that this guy is not indifferent to me, paying compliments me and gifts. I have grown fond of him all my maiden heart. he was such good, kind, tender. We met him the whole year. I thought that he will offer me to leave for him in marriage. I did not speak him it, but in depth of soul waited for it. I lived as in a fairy tale. At us all was good. But suddenly I began to notice that he somewhere vanished on long. I asked him about it but he spoke that at him affairs, that he tries that at us all was good. I was slightly excited, but did not give to this the big value because was in love and trusted him. And once to me one girl when him was not an at home has come and she has told to me that and my guy there are some months!!! You may present, present yourselves it that I felt at that moment. She has told that did not know that he meets someone and when has learned has decided to come to me and to tell the truth. I have left him at once, as though it was not hurt me. Since then has passed a floor of year. These a floor of year I might not talk to anybody from men. But now I understand that on it life does not come to an end and it is necessary to live further. I too might not trust men, I considered that all of them liars. But I know that is on light of the man which may love and not lie to the loved girl. My former guy admitted to me love constantly when we were together. he spoke me it looking directly in eyes. And after that tell as it was possible to not trust him. But now I see, that if the person has got used to lie on life for him there are no human rules. Such history which has taken place with me in life and which has forced me to address in searches of love to the Internet. I see that with you there was something similar, I see that you the sincere person and very good, I am sure what never could act with the person poorly. For this reason I have decided to find love under the Internet because under letters it is possible to learn soul of the person. His outlooks on life. What names of my friends you want to find out! Jaransk is closer Kazan! It is possible to learn much, instead of that the person speaks you compliments looking in eyes, and itself only and thinks of that, as though is faster to drag the girl in bed and then to lie to her that loves her during long time. I with impatience shall wait for your letter. Your Anna!

LETTER SIX 09/03/05
Hello my dearest!!!!! I am glad that at you all well in common! At me too all is excellent! It was pleasant to read your new letter. Weather typical for this season. At me all as usually nothing has taken place new. Now all new in my life are brought by you. Due to you I test new feelings. I have woken up from long hibernation. Such sensation that all this time slept also nothing saw. My days now are not similar one to another all of them different. I feel each day differently! My mood happens a bowl good than bad. In a word I live and I feel that I live. It is very important for feeling that you live. In me now something occurs such feeling that I was born anew. Your letters lull me I frequently I re-read them all of them at me were kept. It is pleasant for me to read them again and again. You liked my cat? He is my best friend! I have found him in the street still a kitten and have sheltered him. I in general love cats and this cat for me means he much feels when to me poorly to lie down to me on a stomach and purrs. I frequently fall asleep from his purring. To him 5 years! I shall tell to you slightly about our country. People at us in general all kind and emotional. Russian people always differed from other peoples any special ustoms Probably because our country has passed it many serious tests. In general now to live in Russia it is not so good though also our economy on rise! Now there is other problem it is danger of terrorism. Now people are afraid of all! To me most I a few was terrible do not want that my children were in potential danger. I would like that they lived in the quiet country and of nothing were afraid I want that they had future. Now in our country few tourists because of terrorism go and correctly do. And even I can tell that if to us I will be fated to meet would not like to meet in Russia. I do not want to endanger the loved person. You with me agree? I worry because of that that between us the big distance slightly. From time to time it seems to me that it is an insuperable barrier. But then I begin to think that all probably and the love should not have barrier. I want that my loved person was not afraid of anything and would be always ready to make all for the sake of me. Then I would give to the answer to him all that at me is. I would not regret for him. The Russian woman is ready to go both in fire and in water for the sake of love. I do not know your women. I do not know as they behave probably at them main a priority these are money! Probably I am mistaken but I think that the love cannot be mixed with money. This light feeling and it should go from heart instead of from a purse. What you think? What you are ready to make for the loved girl? You are ready to be always a line and to help her in all? I think that the most touching moment in relations it when the man does a recognition or the offer. Never nobody proposed me also I did not test that that test at this moment. And I hope that I shall test it once. In general I very simple girl and was not necessary for me of much. Love and would suffice me of respect. The love will rescue the world someone has told once. And she will rescue me! I shall not demand of the husband impossible. I shall not ask him to give me money to manicure either to cosmetics or to a new expensive raincoat. It is not necessary for me that me drove on the most expensive restaurants I simply I want that me loved. I do not want to feel like lonely. It so is wonderful to work together with the husband to bring up children to be going to speak together together to walk together. Now I am ready to that to create family I already was collected life experience. Speak that the woman types peak of sexuality by 30 years. To me already 29 and I am ready to create family. Frequently it happens so two persons like each other but someone from them hesitates of the age or that that he is lower growth. I do not understand such people! If to them have paid attention then they of it are worthy. And age here not and. It is all it is silly possible to love persons the main thing that at him inside is more senior than you for many years and on what he is ready to go for the sake of you. It is interesting to me to learn that you thinks of it you may constrain age or something else? You have complexes? If yes that what? I have no complexes in general! On it I shall finish this letter and I wait your answer lovely. I hope you will not keep me long waiting! Set of air kisses to you and the most strong embraces! Send the regards to your family from Anna from Russia! Most exibt wishes for you road! Yours Anna!!!

Good day my lovely! How you today? At me all is good from mum to you greetings! How weather today at you? Something new? Today to us there will arrive the grandmother and we shall go to a circus! To us there has arrived a circus from Moscow and we have decided to go. I for a long time not was in a circus equally as well as in a zoo. At you there it is a lot of zoos? The grandmother already for a long time did not visit us. And we were very glad when she has sent the telegram and has written that will arrive. A bit later we with the girlfriend go in shop to choose a gift per day birth to her mum. Today at me it is a lot of time to you will not write! Last night I long looked at stars and thought of you my gentle. I have named your name the brightest star in the sky. And now if to me I become sad simply I leave in the evening on street, I shall see the necessary star and to me at once it becomes easier love mine. Now I frequently shall look at stars may to be to me it will be possible to think of desire. I already know that I shall think. It is very a pity to me that we are divided withthousand miles. I so want to feel you all body. I would like to embrace and kiss you. When I close eyes to me it seems that your hands concern my body. They slowly slide from the top downward on my gentle skin mentioning intimate places, Leaving pleasant sensations. I constantly think of you, my love. These days we walk with my best girlfriend on city, Also we talk about you, my love. I very much like to tell about you to my parents, and my best girlfriend. I very much would want, that you were near to me. You would like it, my love? I very much would want it. I very much miss on you, my love. You miss on me, my charm? I want to write something for you I hope to you it is pleasant: All day long, I thought about you. Even when I tried not to think about you, I thought about you. When I closed my eyes, I thought about you. When I opened my eyes, I thought about you. When I thought about the beauty of the season, I thought about you. When I thought about the warmth of the upcoming holidays, I thought about you. When I heard a love song on the radio, I thought about you. When I checked my email, I thought about you. Even when I said goodnight to the stars,I thought about you.And when I slipped beneath the softness of my blanket and gave in to the bliss of sweet dreams, I thought about you. I just can't stop thinking about you...... It for you lovely!!!! I do not want to hurry event but nothing I can do with myself. I can not believe in that that it is possible so to become attached to the person at all not seeing him. But something speaks me that it probably. And I do not hesitate to you to speak about it probably you do not feel it under the relation to me. But I want to trust that you feel too most let even little bit similar to that that I feel!

Now I understand that love this such light and tender feeling. My love to you overflows mine heart. All my soul asks only about one at last to meet you. But it seems such not real. Please dissuade me from it. I at all do not present as it probably because probably it very dearly to travel to your country. And I so want to meet you at you at home!! I want to get acquainted with your family. I want to like them. You see through letters it is impossible to transfer all that you feel and it is not possible to tell all.

Loved my peach and how you feel under the relation to me?? What has changed in your feelings? Lovely if I sometime marry that I would like that you were my husband!!! You for me and only you I see an ideal as my husband and the father of my children if you want to have them? Lovely I would like to have two children of the boy and the girl or two boys. If there will be a boy and the girl that the brother will protect always the sister. My children will be clever and kind. On mine I have slightly fallen into a reverie to you it not seems? But I can dream of it. I very much want to have family of the husband and children. To me it will be already fast 30 years and already it is time to get family. I want to present the care to someone. Want to give the energy to someone. When I go along the street I see as young married couples walk. Many with carriages and him so it is good. And to me it becomes warm on soul!! I shall soon be inflated also as I shall go with my loved. And in a carriage there will be a small child. When I write about it my heart am overflown with heat.

LETTER TEN 14/03/05
Hello my sweet heart!! Today remarkable day and at me excellent mood! Thank for your new beautiful letter. How you? How your relatives and friends? How affairs at work? All well I hope? Because if something not so I shall be upset. Greetings to you from mum and her best regards. I shall tell to you slightly as passes my day. Today as always has risen early has taken a shower has drunk some coffee and in 8 00 already was at work. It is good because usually it happens less. Now I on dinner also have dropped in to the girlfriend to write to you the letter. Want to notice that our relations accept more and more serious character. It appreciablly is very good. I hope you all are glad that so occurs. For my part it already is more than simply friendship it already than feeling stronger. I notice main recesses in contents of our letters. More than tender compliments and there is more than sensuality. My heart is already located to you it is possible to tell that you already have a particle of my heart. I hope you too are ready to give me a particle of the. You in my ideas the majority of time when I think. I frequently think of you even when a meal by the bus on work I already think that I shall write to you and I would think of that that would be desirable you to inform me. I still made nobody happy in my life I have in view of the man. I very much would like to make happy you lovely. For the woman this big happiness to make loved the man happy. If the man it is satisfied in all the woman means is glad. I very much want to give all energy to you I have chosen you from among many and I do not regret about it. You much for me mean also it value I means you for me can not tell that it has turned out casually. This realized feeling it not mere words this desire to be loved and to love and this serious desire. If all this was not serious then I would not dream of walks with you in the evening under the star sky. I would not represent us sitting for a little table at restaurant and lovely talking. On a table of a candle and a wine. To a word I should tell that from alcoholic drinks I prefer only a wine and white moist. In my dreams we always together and never depart from each other on a step. You always accompany with me and not only in a reality but also in ideas. At us speak that when there comes love that in the sky the new star lights up. And while she burns love does not pass. Yesterday in the sky there were many stars I are sure that the new star there has appeared and she inflames all more strongly. And than our feelings that more strongly she will be stronger will burn. And I do not want that she faded! There are many different ways to express love but will express love through letters very difficultly. Sometimes it happens to look to the person in eyes to express the love enough. Sometimes it is enough to make any pleasant gesture to express the feelings. In the letter expression of love are only words. But sometimes it happens that words not enough to express that that you want. How many words only think was already told by different people of love and till now nobody may pick up correctly definition of this word. It speaks only about one love it is impossible to describe words of her only is possible to see and feel heart. I have question to you! You are ready to live in the consent and love with one girl all life? To you to not bother to see each day one and too the person? You are ready to accept new love and to keep her eternally? Lovely what part of a body in me is pleasant to you most of all? And in general that in me it is pleasant to you? How far I from your ideal or on the contrary may be very close I to your ideal? It is pleasant for you when the woman pays you many attention? You like to give a lot of attention to the woman as? We would allow you would see me for the first time that you have told me? You enjoy the romantic moments for example kiss, embraces to keep for hands? When your first kiss was? My first kiss was when I studied in 10 class. It was so awkwardly and funny. I remember it as though it was yesterday. The riches are not important for me! For me human relations are important! I should you tell that very much is pleasant to me when from the man well smells. And it is not pleasant to me when from him smells as tobacco or alcoholic drinks. I always try that from me always well smells . I think to men too it is pleasant when their loved woman well smells. I think it is time will finish it letters lovely and to wait your answer! At parting I want to you the gentle kiss and strong embraces will present. With the best regards your true and i hope loved Anna!

To my lovely prince!!! Loved so it was wonderful to read your new lines of your new letter. It is so much passion and so much trembling in them. I nevertheless see that you may not believe the happiness still. But to you will come in it to believe it the validity. It is the present love has rushed into your life! She has not knocked at all on your door has simply come and does not want to leave. And she will not leave never she there was inside you she has remained inside me. Now she has hidden but when we shall see each other she will cheer up. She becomes the big burst of emotions. She will be free and can do all that will want with us. We in her authority now lovely. More there is no disappointment there is no pain for the last insults more. There is only I and you and anybody more on all white light. There are two hearts. Two hearts which are beaten in a uniform impulse ready to merge in one big heart filled by love. Now all that around not so important is important only that as soon our hands will incorporate. New life of any loneliness begins more is not present. There is no more grief and should not be and there are no doubts. It seems to me that our love will suffice for the whole world. I now sit I write you the letter and I listen to a slow song of group O-Zon which refer to as " Oriunde Al Fi " and on heart it is very quiet and pleasant. I think that you now think of me because I feel heat on soul. Last night at me was feelings that with you something happened also I simply might not find to himself a place. I do not know why I had such feeling but it was I long not might fall asleep. But then I have calmed myself and could fall asleep. Loved I very much worry for you. Even if you will be ill to me I will be very sad also shall worry. I want to tell you all that I think of you: Fine, Wonderful, Remarkable In a word, The most excellent, The most loved, dear, Cheerful, ympathetic, Resourceful, The sun mine, Beloved Charm, Beloved, You are the bettest, Outstanding, Kind, Clever, Beautiful, Seductive, Captivating, heerful, Gentle, Charming, Amazing, Dazzling, Bright and smart Business and practical Mysterious, Magnificent, Matchless, Inimitable, Emotional, ender.............. All these compliments are devoted only to you my sweet!!!!! I love you!!!!!! I so have strongly got used to you that you for me became an ideal - you mine and whose more, only mine!!!!

I examine that the creation of the spiritual emotional basis of the man is exact and it is meaningful the purposes of formation of family. I want to you to inform that my feelings and words concerning you always were, I am sincere also always understood, that we put a lot of trust that our union would be, when it is real. Now I am sure concerning all 100 , that I can to you to trust. And you, that the man, that to me is necessary. When I read your letter, I saw in it your sincerity and fidelity to me. I have made of your letter for me the directly large conclusion, which is possible is to expressed in three words by I LOVE YOU. Today I even felt so highly, in me by all was going so easily, because my ideas were directed concerning you. I as knew, when I think of you, and you think of me, and it to heat up my soul and body. You probably think, that I examine such not modern, but I that at first time I should have affinity with the favourite man. Now in me the large propensity to you, I do not know, why but it - truth. Sometimes such dreams dream me, that it is a shame to me to you to speak concerning it. This dream dreamed me today at night. We have supper with you in you, at home and then we go to you in dream, and we begin to be engaged with you love. But in life I know of rather very small floor, only on television films and would like to study maximal with you concerning it. The justification, that I speak with you so sincerely, but I think, that you should know concerning me only. I would be happy to visit you - limit of my desires. My favourite time of reception of the foodstuffs, which I do not know on any other business, I love everything, that is made with a fruit. I very much love you, and completely you I trust. Lovely that I can tell this smallest to you still more so much many words in my stock but I am afraid that at me hands to print them. There is nothing better than to speak gentle words to the person directly looking to him in eyes. I wait for the moment when I can tell you the most important words looking to you in eyes. It will be the unforgettable moment in my life. Loved, on it I shall finish letters to you. I wait following your letter with impatience as always. Set of kisses and strong embraces for you. I love you I miss on you lovely. Yours for one century Anna !!!!!!!!

At me even has intercepted breath when I have found so much your letters in my box. I was so much compliments never received from anybody. It is so much heat so much love I is simple from your words. I can not be far from you I more be unable to sustain this torture. I so would like you to tell so much much that in letters it to not be laid. Ah why we so far apart and I do not know as it is possible to overcome this distance. If it was simply possible to close eyes and having opened them again to appear near to you. I would give all for this miracle. But such we will not need to do something to connect our hearts. But what as we are able to do it? If I might I tomorrow sat aboard the plane and have flied to you!!!!! And you would meet me at the airport probably with colors and a smile. In one instant I would feel your strong embraces!!!

She is distributed to me all more and more. Sweet mine we need to connect our hearts and our hands. We should be together. But how it to make? As I hate this word money they prevent all. They at all do not give us with you to meet. Ah if all was so simply. I simply would like to sit aboard the plane and to fly to you in spite of on anything. My mum too understands that because of money I can not visit you. She too is slightly upset. But it is most of all bad to me. I even had idea to sell any things to collect though a few money to trip. But mum of me has dissuaded. Sweet I that to us to do as us to merge in one dance of love? I at all do not know that you can make for me. To me I was inconvenient to ask you about something has received good education from mum. And I itself can not ask about what people. Dear I only can learn the ticket up to you how many will to cost. Sweet mine why we would not live beside I already for a long time was near to you. We for a long time would enjoy our mutual love. It so beautifully sounds but it so it is difficult to achieve. I can not hide any more that that I very much want you to see I wanted to talk to you on this theme. But why that was afraid to be refused. But I at last was solved and have told you all that at me on soul. Eternally it is impossible to write each other letters continuation is necessary. I was simple already physically I can not far from you. I certainly shall understand if you will tell that this fast decision. But I can tell one that I am ready to this I and I want it.

It is important for me because I very much love you and for me am intolerable to be far from you. In general I loved mine want to visit you to your country and to begin to build our future with you???? To you probably it is interesting why to me so difficultly to offer you it?? I to you shall answer me very difficultly to you it to speak because if to me to go to you that it it will be very expensive to cost for me. And I understand that fact that I itself can not pay all my trip to you. And I should hope only for your help. But I as understand that for you it too probably difficultly. And you at all are not obliged to pay my trip. And in general my education does not allow me to insist on it. And on the other hand I so want to be near to you!!! In general my lovely and sweet peach I very much want to meet you and your help in it is very necessary for me. I hope that you do not take offence at me lovely. I operate from the cleanest and sincere promptings. You are necessary for me only and all other is formality. I nothing am excited except for you with my prince!!!!

Anna Shabunina (Sterlitamak, Russia) 

I was scammed by Anna Shabunina Sterlitamak, Hubaiberdina Russia 45-88 I am an adult and I knew that if I couldn't afford to loose the $1000.00, then I shouldn't fall for it. I just don't want anyone else who can't afford it to get the shaft. WesternUnion can send money to Swift accounts. I should of got the message when Swift Accounts: SEKARU4EXXX and VTBRRUMMXXX didn't show up. The invoice number is the same 27-345-336. I have included all the pictures I have. She has been known to changer her email address, but the pictures should tell it all.

Arina Vladimirovna Gourkina (Stavropol, Russia) 

I am a single father of 1, American/Latino, 40 years old, self-employed. I was contacted through Yahoo Personals around 1/30/5 by "Arina". She informed me that she was looking for a "kind and gentle man", that my profile attracted her attention and that if I was interested in contacting her to reply directly to her e-mail address I did just that and requested a photo of her. "Arina" responded to my request on 2/3/05, directing her e-mails to my yahoo address and sent me pictures of herself, along with the long e-mail you will find below. I exposed the scam on 3/18/05 when I confronted "Arina" about some facts and information she had shared with me that did not make any sense. She admitted to the scam when I told her that I would expose her name and address on your Black List and report her to the Department of State. I am including her final e-mail (along with the first one she sent and the "money request" one) in which she is confessing to what she did, pleading with me to understand why she had done it.This is a successful scam prevention story thanks to your web site, which alerted me of such a possibility. I did not send her any money. The money was requested to be sent via Western Union to the following bank address: Bin Bank, 8 MARTA 3/1, Stavropol, Russia 355002, for Arina Gourkina. The amount requested was $247.00. A couple of interesting facts to point out and be aware of: "Arina" actually called me on the phone one day (she had previously requested my phone number and I gave it to her) to say hello and to tell me how excited she was to meet me; she also sent a picture of herself in front of a computer that had my picture in it; and last, she sent a picture of a forged "visa" that was supposedly issued by what she called the "anti-emigration department" in Russia, with whom she had an interview to obtain it. I am including that picture for your inspection. Also, shortly after the initial contact she had with me through Yahoo Personals, her profile was deleted from that web site. Again, all further correspondence was done via my yahoo address.


Initial letter dated 2/3/05:
"Hi Oscar! I was so glad to receive your letter! Thank you. You have answered and it means that your heart is open for new friends. I think it's Great, because the friendship brighten life of people. The new events, new people, any changes, new ideas and thoughts are refresh soul. That is why I was so glad to see that you again have written to me. Probably you have already noticed that I'm not able to keep my emotions inside of me. Of course I am talking about joy, about good mood, about all good and positive things that can be in my soul. I always try to share my joy with other people, I try to give my smile and good mood to all people. I try to never show to people that I am grieved or I have any problems in a life. Therefore all people, with whom I work and communicate are sure that everything in my life is perfectly, that I am a happy woman, that I have no any disappointments, that all my dreams always come true and success always accompanies me. But unfortunately it is not so, because when the person is lonely, nothing can cure sadness. And if you ever felt the same, of course you understand what I am speaking about. Oscar, I must tell that I try to write in English as good as possibly (within my knowledges). But I don't know how you perceive my English. I hope you understand all what I write. I study English already for more than 18 years, but taking into account that I study this language in the Russian-speaking country, I understand that my English is not quite correct. Therefore I ask you to not punish me for my mistakes (Smile). Earlier I dreamed to be the linguist or the translator. Well, I've become the dental specialist, but I always was studing your language with the big pleasure. And I am happy that I have chosen the English language for studying, because the knowledge of English has allowed me to estimate the full luxury and beauty of wonderful poetry of English-speaking musicians. I very much like the western music. Pink Floyd is a Greatest band. And each of soloists of this band is unique. I like Dire Straits, Sting, Kylie Minogue, George Michael and many other delightful musicians. In Russia as well there are many good musicians, but probably you don't know about it (smile). Well, I think that there are many others things about myself that I must tell. Thank you for your picture. It is a fine picture. You are a strong and handsome man. I very much like this picture. It is wonderful, when a man combines force and charm. It happens so seldom. Forgive me for my frank words. But I always speak what I think. I think there is nothing bad in it. You have pleasant appearance and it is wonderful. In general, if to speak about my nature, I must tell that I'm the versatile person. I have various interests. I like sports, I like reading, I like to listen to music, to watch movie. I like Sixth Sense, Rainman, Stepmother, A Perfect World, Scent of a Woman, Ladder 49. Of course, I can't list all movies I like - too many good films have been made in your country. I like to cook, I knit warm clothes. Actually, here in any settlement almost each woman can knit. And I'm not exception. I like camping, swimming. I have no children and I was never married, though of course I was in relationship and even thought that it will lead me to the happy future. But now I haven't anything except of bad and painful memoirs. But I live with a smile on my face and with hope in my heart. I think I am optimist. And maybe my optimism has helped me to dare to write you. I do not need many things to be happy. All I need is a man, friend, soul-mate. My life has led me to the fact that now I seeks it in such a way. And I do not think it is bad. Oscar, what are the basic features of your character? I never tried to describe to somebody my character in the letter. And I have no idea how to do it. But if there is anything you want to know, I will tell you with pleasure of course. I really can tell that I have the kind heart, and I am the good listener. I'm an absolutely kind person though at the same time I am a proud woman; I always appreciated sincerity, honesty and frankness; I am a loyal person and I always have respect to people. I am able to forgive and I do not recognize anger. All this are the obvious features of my character,- the features, which I self can see in myself. Oscar, what you are looking for in a woman? How often you tried to find a friend or soul-mate via Internet? Probably you have many female friends in the Internet. What else to tell about myself as I have a little time? I use computer at the clinic. I work from Monday till Friday. But sometimes I work Saturday and Sunday. Therefore, maybe I will be able to write letters in weekends, if you want (smile). This computer is located in cabinet of medical analyses. We get the access to the Internet only few times in day, for sending analyses and receiving result. Well, now this computer will be used for my dialogue with Oscar! (smile). I wanted as well to ask you about your family, Oscar. I miss my family too much. I hope to receive your letter soon. I send you two my pictures. I hope you will like them. Sincerely and with the best regards. Arina."

Letter dated 3/17/05 with money request: 
"Hi, my Oscar. I even do not know what to tell first. I simply hope that you will be happy! The most i mportant, finest news - I did it! I got the visa! I am very happy!!!! I as well have found out that I will get vacation April, 1, 2005. I have been to the company that reserves airway tickets. I asked them how I can reach Miami (MIA) and how much it costs. They have offered to me the ticket that costs $1119.80 USD. I asked them to find cheapest ticket, because this price is expensive for me. They have answered that they have a cheaper ticket and the beginning of the flight April, 5, 2005. It costs $834 USD. It was the best variant for me. I asked them to reserve a ticket. But they refused, because they can't reserve the ticket without advance payment. I must pay full cost. I have asked if I can pay a part of money now, and the other part later. They have told that it is possible, but I will be limited by term. And if I will not pay the full cost of the ticket within of this term, I will lose already nested money. I have agreed because it is the only chance for me, because I must give to anti-emigration committee a data about my payment. By this moment I had only the concrete sum of money which I had after all my expenses. I paid $ 480 USD. But it was not enough for them. In a panic, all what Natalia and I could do - we pawned our gold earrings and rings and I got $ 107 USD. That is all I could do. The number of the flight on which I will get the ticket is 2545 Air France The time of departure from Moscow is 7:15 am. The time of arrival in Miami is 2:20 pm. I will change a plan in Paris (CDG), number of the flight 8348 Delta Airlines. After this I will fly to Miami, to you. I know that probably I simply must tell that I can't come to you because I haven't the remaining sum. I know that I promised to do all by self, and I was sure that I can. I did not want to ask you. But after I did everything I did, I cannot simply tell that I will not come to you. I have passed through so many difficulties, and I have overcome the most difficult. But all the same I have disgusting feeling that I could not fulfill the promise. I am always ready to do all what is possible,- to fulfill my promises, but at the same time I understand that any person could get in such a situation. To get the visa I have spent much more money than I expected. But people were ready to help me only if I will pay them. I paid more than 300 dollars to get all documents, I paid in municipal committee, in the ministry. Even officers in army garrison have compelled me to pay for their help. I did not expect all this, but up to the last moment I was sure that I still can make everything. I expected that I can get a vacation payment. We get a vacation payment after ending of a vacation. I asked to give me this money now because I need this money urgently. But, at the last moment I have got the answer that I can get this money urgently only in case of serious illness or for example in case of death of the relative. I feel so guilty. I was sure that nothing can prevent our meeting. But I must pay remaining sum. It is $ 247 USD. And I must pay money before March 23, evening. Otherwise I will lose my nested money and our jewelry will be sold out simply in vain. I know that I should not ask you, and I am very ashamed to do it. I understand that probably you are not interested in me too strongly and you have no very strong feelings towards me. And I understand that it is a big money. I know it and for me twice difficult to address to you. But also comprehension of my position convinces me, that any person could get in similar situation. I want to meet you and I say sincerely that I need your help. I understand that I put you in inconvenient position. But I am simple person, I am the simple woman. I am not the wizard. Any person could get in a similar situation. And maybe I really simply had to tell you that I can't meet with you because I could not provide my travel completely. But I cannot simply refuse our meeting because then all my diligence, forces, nerves, means will be spent in vain. I understand that for you it is too big sum to lend me. You are not obliged to help me. And 300 dollars which I have spent to get the visa, and 587 $ that I have given for the ticket are huge money for me. But I want you to know that I have given everything not for the sake of myself, but for the sake of us, for the sake of you and me. And I was happy all this time. If you want to meet me, to help me to make our meeting, please, send money to the help before March 23, evening. I want you to be confident in my sincerity, - that is why I send you the view of my visa. I want you to see the result of my efforts. If you can help me I will tell you what I have found out. Natalia said that you can help me with the help of remittance system. So I have addressed to the nearest bank. I have been told that they use the system ''Western Union''. They have told that it is very convenient office for me; and this system works always and reliably. I give you necessary elements for sending money with the help of ''Western Union'': Bin Bank 8 MARTA 3/1 Stavropol, Russia 355002 for Arina Gourkina. In bank I have been told, that to get the money, I must tell to employee of bank your full name, your full address, exact sum which I should receive and some confidential numbers - Money Transfer Control Number. You will get this number in your bank if you will send your help. Only with presence of all this information I can get your help. I do not know what answer I will get from you. I very much am afraid that you will not help me. But I want to tell, that I really need you, and I simply can't endure the thought that I did almost everything, but I will not meet you. I understand that it is big money. I have given all my forces, but together we are stronger. I really ask you to help me. I will give you back all your money at the earliest opportunity. I have written you honestly and sincerely. Are you with me? Your Arina."

Letter dated 3/18/05, which "Arina" wrote after I told her I knew about her scam and that I would take steps to expose it:
"Oscar. My child lies under the device for maintenance of ability to live. If you would see his eyes when he with tears in these eyes say to me that he loves me and wants to live to be with me, if you would hear how he say by shivering voice: mom, I will die? If you would see he, if you would see how he loves me and wants to live, if you would know how I love him, maybe you would understand me more though I know that my place in a hell. But if I will not find money he will die. And he knows it. I tried all means. I addressed to the government, I addressed to people. Without results. What must I do? I know that I should be damned. But people which have offered me such a "work", have promised me big money. I know that it is dirty money, but I do not think of anything except of my boy. I did not think that I shall have feelings to you. But I have. But what can I do? I know that I do not deserve to live in this world, but my baby deserves. I tried all ways, but, our damned Russia, and our damned Russian government are at all does not pay attention to such small destinies. So judge me." Oscar.

Ekaterina (Ussuriysk, Russia)

Hey folks, I am a 45-year-old unemployed single male from New York. On 3/16/2005, Ekaterina (katysha2005_05) sent a note to my Yahoo Personals! mailbox suggesting I email her at so it will be more convenient to write and send me pictures. The note she sent to my Yahoo! Mailbox was identical to the one Bob Hughes received from a person calling herself Marina Kushakova from (Ussuriysk, Russia). So someone (or more than one person) is still using this story to try to attract older male targets. As of this writing (March 20, 2005), I have received four letters from this person, one a night. It struck me as unusual that the person answered almost none of my questions. I figured 'she' (assuming it is an actual female) was just learning English and needed to find someone to help translate my letters and help her draft replies. I was a little skeptical about a pretty 29-year-old woman writing me and reminded her I am 45 but I figured maybe things were bad in Russia and she actually couldn't meet anyone there. Right I should have known better. Anyway, as of now, there has been no talk about money but I intend to stop writing this person. Since the first letter that I received was identical to a letter that was used to try to scam someone (as reported on this website), there is no doubt that the person currently calling herself Ekaterina will eventually try something similar to me. Oh well she seemed like a nice person. Bob


Here are the contents of the first letter on 03/16/2005 06:42 pm EST, "katysha2005_05" wrote:
