Letter 3
Hello my honey Carl, How has passed your day? I hope, that everything is good. You know, I am so happy to read all your letters. Your letters make my days. My friends and parents are happy to see, that we have our correspondence. I should tell to you, that you make my life full of happiness. And now I know, that is the person who thinks of me and now I am not alone. Thank you for it. I do not want to put the profile on Yahoo again. I do not want to look other e-mails. I want to have the correspondence only with you. I do not know why, but I liked your profile. I cannot explain to you it. It is a difficult question for me. Today we have cold weather. It is -12 C. Now there is good time to have a walk. But you are so far away and I do not like to walk alone. For this reason I am now in Internet - cafe and I write to you. I do not know, what else I can tell you about me. I do not have children and I have never been married. I think, you already know all things about me. I feel, that I know you very long time. Yesterday I and my girlfriend went to cinema. The film " National Treasure ". You should see it, because it is very good film. You know, I very much would want to hear your voice. But I have no phone at home and I have no cellular telephone, therefore you cannot call me. But if you want, you can give me your phone number and I shall try to find a way to call to you as soon as possible. I do not know how it will be, I not so well speak English. It is very difficult to use messenger because of time difference, and I dont have computer at home. You know, when I stay alone every evening, I think of our first meeting as it can be. I imagine, that you see me at the airport and you give me flowers. You take my hand and you kiss me, and we go in your house to celebrate my birthday. It will be the best gift on my birthday in the world. Or you can visit me and we shall celebrate it here, together, only you and I. I think of it all time. Did You imagine it or not? What do you really think of it? I want to ask you what is closest airport to to your place? My airport is located in the city of Ufa, it is 160 km from my house. I cannot stop to write to you the letter because I like it very much. But I should make some work on the house and I should go. I hope, that you think of me because I constantly think of you. I send you my photos. I hope, when you will look at them, you will think of me. And I hope, that you like to look at my pictures. I wish you good day!!! Kisses for you!!! From Anna Smirnova with love!!! Russia, Kumertau, Krylova street, 8-13. PS. On a photo I am with a guitar. I like to play the guitar when I have a free time.

He promised me to send you the information on my trip. But there is one thing If we want to celebrate my birthday with you in your place, you should tell to me, you will help me? They will sell cheap tickets if we shall meet. Tickets will cost much more for us if I shall departlater. They say, that it will be much more difficult that apply for a visa which is valid during 1 month. I do not know why they have told to me that. You think of it, I cannot get it, because I earn only 100 $ here. But you should not worry because of money. I shall give you your money later when we shall meet because I shall work in some school and I can earn a few money for you. I regret to tell you these things, but I very much want to be with you.

Arina Gurkina aka Arina Gourkina 

I a am a white male 38 same woman tried me.Contacted me through yahoo. I contacted the owner or which is the email she uses to see if there was something he could do. I know of at least 3 others. I put a lot of info on a small web site I have the money request letter and a letter from the American Embassy in Moscow.

Ekaterina Efremova (Kazan Russia)

Hi, my name is Dave, a 29 year old and I live in Virginia, USA. Much like a letter from another responder: it was the same verbatim. I had a profile on Yahoo personals, when I got this email with this photo, and follow ups. She said she had a degree in accounting/audit, and worked as a waitress in a bar, and her boss let her use the computer to contact me. Like the rest, she said she loved me quite quick, and wanted to come over to live with me, etc. She stated that her friend Elena met a man in England by the name of Scott, and that is how she knew to contact me. After a week and a half of this emailing and getting a photo almost with each email of a beautiful girl, 29 years old she/him/they stated, that getting a Visa B-2 ( I don't know what that is, or if Visa cards have sub-categories ) would cost a total of $390 even. She/him/they stated that help was needed in paying for it and gave me the address of the Western Union bank to send it to. The bank address was: Russia, Kazan, Bank Kazankiy Gvardeiskaya, 35. Her name was Ekaterina ( which seems to be pretty common used first name ) Efremova. I have the understanding she has be discovered under several names: Oksana, Irina, and others. She contacted me first on March 16 of 2005. Appantly, she keeps the same address, and seems to copy/paste her letters to men over here in the States. Her address is stated as: Ekaterina Efremova, Kazan 46700, Street Dostocvskogo 79 Flat 17, Russian Federation. I don't even know ( or belive ) that her name is even Ekaterina. We talkedvia email for two weeks, and for once I thought I found the right girl,and was just a matter of getting her over here. I really started to careabout someone who probably doesn't even exist, which needless to say, isheartbreaking. It is lousy to take advantage of us nice, single guys,in America using a big-named personals like Yahoo to scam us. I must be, though. The letters were identicalto others. *sigh* Thank you for any information, from anyone. I hope this will help out in finding this scam artist(s), or help anyone out there who has recieved the same letters, or seen this girl...whoever she really is. Thank you, Dave.


HI have the following letters and photos, I hope this helps anyone out: Letter #1:
Hi, Dave! How are you? Probably, if you have guessed, this is Ekaterina:) 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 Elena. My girlfriend Elena have met a good man through the Internet from England, London City, by the Internet too. Her boyfriend is Scott. Elena and Scott 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 Elena 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 Elena, the men from other countries, especially from England and USA, are very good, and they can to appreciate and to respect women as considerable men too. It's the opinion of Elena, and I want to agree with Elena completely. Elena has chosen her boyfriend Scott from England because she know england language a little. I speak England 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 29 years old, my growth 5 ' 6, and I weigh about 57 kg, I am "Lion" on Zodiac, I was born on August, 1, 1975 :) 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 making many 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!

My love Jim! Today I went to visas firm. I was told that my visa was ready at last, I was most happy the woman at that time. I also reserve tickets. The number of the flight on which I reserve the ticket, it would be on the April, 11: 9:20 am Depart Moscow (SVO) Aeroflot-Russian International Airlines 317, Arrive Phoenix (PHX) 9:49 pm Delta 752. My returning to Russia in 34 days, but I think information on it is not necessary for you. I reserve the cheapest ticket to Phoenix and cost 1039.86 American dollars. But I had no this money. Probably I not was in a similar situation, but I recently bought new TV. So I went to pawnshop and pawned silver and gold embellishments which I had from my mom. I with tears on eyes, pawned my jewelry which were unique memory of my mom, but all this for the sake of you. I got 190 USD But it is not enough for full cost of the ticket. I have paid in whole 580 USD. It was my last money. It is very difficult for me to tell you about it. But I have done everything I can. I paid visa, passport for travel abroad, payment for medical survey, etc. I have bought the ticket on a train up to Moscow. I paid a part of the ticket. But this money is not enough. I don't want to burden you. I want to reach you with my own money but unfortunately I have failed. Now I have to pay the remaining part. It is only 460 USD. I must pay this money before March, 24, Otherwise I will lose my money and reserve ticket. If you love me, and if you want to see me soon, please, send the money for the ticket before March, 24, morning. I understand that it is a difficult decision for you. Of course if you don't want you can not help me. It is bad but not fatal. I will lose my money and our meeting. I speak so because I am in despair and confusion. Now, when we are divided only with one step, I am afraid. I am afraid that you will not help, and all my diligence will be gone. I love you and I want to be with you. I have not calculated my forces. But together we are much stronger. It is much easier to go through difficulties and barrier together. I want to present you all my infinite love and fidelity. 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 the help, and to rely only on myself. I very seldom address to somebody for the help, but now I ask you to help me. I THINK, BOTH OF US WANT THIS MEETING, means also charges we should divide for two. I THINK IT FAIRLY. I have made a step forward. Make also you a step towards to me. I hope that has not offended you. I love you and I trust. I know, that you will not throw me now when there is only one step. My love is boundless to you. I am confident, your love to me too. The love is not measured in money, money it only a small problem for us now. Tell me Jim, can you help me? If you have an opportunity please help me. If you have really decided to send me of money. I have found out about the western union (It is company the engaged money transfer). Western Union has website, called Probably it will help you with the greater information on it. the western union to Kasli city (It is the nearest city to me where I can use services of the western union).
