I registered on a Yahoo Personals website and was contacted by a woman that seems to be the woman mentioned here. I was looking into sending her some flowers (She has not yet asked for money) and came across a blacklist of addresses the florist will not deliver to (
blacklist-st7.shtml ) i thought i may as well look up the address i was given to send mail to as i felt it odd that a woman from Russia would be coming on so strong from day one. well, i found her address, then with a simple Goggle search i looked up "Russian scam" and her address...found this site...and her pictures, which i have attached. Her emails are almost word for word and here they are (I blocked her house #)

I received this group of bogus love letters over the course of the past several days. They are identical to letters reported on your website on 3/21. I received these bogus love letters from “Ekaterina Smirnova” of Ussuriysk beginning on March 16. Thanks in advance to your attention to these, and whatever you can do to warn other men or report the scam to authorities will be appreciated. (I was able to use your March 21 update by another correspondent to confirm the scam, so thank you).

Between us the big understanding and respect. My parents have very well brought up me and I am grateful to them for it. I am proud that mum and the daddy gave me good education. We live in one apartment. This apartment has been given to the daddy from work, and she makes two rooms, kitchen, bathing and toilet rooms. I asked mum and the daddy about our acquaintance through the Internet. They have estimated it positive and have told, that are glad, that I could find the good person due to high technologies. They care of that that I was happy and about my further life. My parents want that I had a happy and good life, also that I could find the unique person with which I can lead the further life. As I have earlier told I was not married. My work in traumatology to like me, as I help people in their problems connected with traumas. It is hurt to me to see, when small children suffer and I am ready to help to heal him their wounds. I talk with them much and during conversation they overlook about the pain.

Unfortunately it will not be long as they will leave for England for the further residing at Scott. Before it they want to travel on Europe. Elena visited England last time when Scott asked her about it. Having visited England they have understood that very much like each other and that cannot live without this love. I remember as Elena was very happy at this time. They lived together during five months in England. A field of it they arrived to Russia in the city of Kazan. Elena has told Scott, that wanted to visit parents and that they stayed at their place a little. Scott did not understand anything in Russian and could not speak on it, but Elena learned his some words and it now can speak a little in Russian. They are very happy together and very much like each other. I envy them a little, but it is light and kind envy. We frequently meet and we waste time together when I have free time.

Greetings, Sean! How you? My affairs are well! Thanks for your answer to my last letter! I want to thank you for very good picture. Many thanks. Sean I think that it very wonderfully, that we write each other because from our letters we learn about each other much more. I am interested with your life in your country, I read your letters with the great pleasure! I hope that also it will be interesting to you about my interests, my life and much the friend. As my study demanded many knowledge which it was possible to receive reading books, I have grown fond of reading books. I like to read. I have read all father's library. She is impossible to tell that big, but she totals some tens books of fiction. Also there is a special literature which used the daddy, but she did not represent for me the big interest. I like to read fiction. I also like some products of such known writers as Alexander Sergeevicha Pushkin, Lermontov, very to like product Lev Nikolaevich Tolstoy "War and peace". Huge my admiration was caused by foreign authors, contemporaries. To like me the foreign literature. The trilogy +Lord of the Rings ; has very much liked. Also very to like film which have removed under the book. I understand that it is a fairy tale, but she very well reflects our world in which we live. Yes that I can tell about cinema still. To me most of all to like to look comedies and serials. I think that any woman likes to look films about love. Sometimes them name + a soap opera ;. I not so like films where there is a violence or films over wars. It is a lot of it in our world and to me it should seems that we to make this world to more pleasant for a life. There is one good Russian film which to me very much to like. This film about war also refers to + In fight there are one old men ; in this film the love to the native land and is shown on what people for the sake of protection of the native land are capable. My favourite actors from Russia it: Papanov, Mironov, Natalia Gundareva, Nikulin. They are very good actors, unfortunately many have died, but their art and films in which they were removed it is immortal. From foreign actors to me like Jim Kerry, Mel Gibson, and other actors which are removed in comedies. It is a lot of them, also I am afraid that it will borrow a lot of time to list all. It is a little about my interests in music. Most of all to like me classical music. The classics has liked me in school days. At lessons of music we studied creativity of many. For example such as Rakhmaninov, Chaikovsky, Vivaldi, Beethoven, Bah. Very much to like me + a lunar sonata ;. This my one of the most favourite. From modern music to me to like to listen to such executors as "Bulanov", "Verka Serdjuchka", Russian fate, "DDT", "Spleen", "Aria", "Zemfira", "Kino". From foreign to like me group " Queen ", Elton John, Ennio Morricone, Roxette, Boney M, very to like Robert Miles and Blackmore's Night and also Nightwish. To me to like to listen to modern music, but my heart belongs to classical music. She helps to relax and estimate situations with a pure head. The classics is music as a hobby! I think that you Sean agree with me. Sean inform me please than you are keen in the literature, music that like to look from films, visiting theatres or other representations is possible. To me all this will be interesting for knowing. I hope that you can tell to me about it. It so? Sean about the foodstuffs? Well, at me many favourite dishes. I like good and tasty I peep. Yes it is not necessary for me to watch the figure, but I can sometimes refuse temptation and I eat that that to me very much to like. I love various soups, salads. I prefer to eat much fried and fat. I very much love a fried potato, but I should choose frequently between temptation of taste and a figure, but I have found from this situation an output I eat not much so that it did not harm to a figure. I love meat, it not a secret and I think that it is not necessary to hide it as we learn about us more from our letters. Meat I prefer in a cooked kind as thus very small loss of all of his components and it more nutritious. And you love meat? Probably it is a silly question, but nevertheless ? Yes I also love fowl "chicken". My favourite fish is a red fish she very tasty and to me to like when she is prepared by mum. She does it is very tasty. And in general I think that if the dish has been prepared with love it will be nutritious and tasty as the love can work wonders. You agree with me? Sean I love fruit, this especial for me as I every day try to eat them. Certainly all this in the certain quantities. My favourite fruit is a grapefruit, it can seem bitter, but in it it is a lot of vitamins. Also I like oranges, bananas, apples, kiwi, berries. Vegetables as are useful also I love it as for example carrots, tomatoes, a cucumber, a garden radish, turnip and many other things. Sean and you like to prepare I peep? You the good cook? I hope that my question has not offended you and you are not annoyed on me. As I was spoken by my parents and especially mum I prepare well. Also friends speak that I manage to do some miracles on kitchen and the dishes prepared by me tasty. Sports for me in the childhood were very problematic as I have been given birth by the weak child and on this I lagged behind in physical development other children. It has caused in me a complex, but I have overcome it. I like to be engaged in gymnastics, I not professionally to it am engaged only for myself also to support my figure. From sports to me like such as volleyball. I do not play in volleyball, but I like to observe of it. The big interest causes billiards in me game in "Snooker" I saw on the TV and it was interesting to me. I do not play in billiards also. I with Elena frequently visit pool constantly a field of employment by gymnastics. I well have free time much, but I of it try with the big advantage for myself. I pool we float, we relax. And you Sean, go to pool, or it is possible at you others are interesting. What your favourite kind of sports? Has overlooked to tell, I very much like to dance, on gymnastics we frequently dance, you love dance? You danced with a hoop? It is very interesting, very much it to like me. Interestingly you would like to dance with me in pair at dance with a hoop if I have shown you how it is done? About mine hobbie? I like to collect various female magazines, such as "fashion", + your life ;, "Liza", + we Sew the hands ;, + seasons of year ;, + a gold collection ;, at you probably also many various magazines which are issued. Basically all these magazines about lady's wear, but in them also many various themes which interest any woman. To me to like to read female magazines, in them it is possible to find much and a lot of interesting, I understand that it interestingly only to the woman. Sean I also wanted to devote you in my dreams, I think that to you it will be interesting for knowing. I never drove the automobile and on this I dream when or to learn and receive a driving licence. It probably very much bewitches and it is interesting, but it means also the huge responsibility. As operating the automobile we should not forget about those people which us surround as not a rare case when to us deliver children a field of road accidents. By the way, my parents, and friends constantly ask about you Sean, especially my parents, I have told to my parents, that you are the decent and good person, my parents are very glad that we can to adjust good relations. Sean my parents wish us and further to support good relations. As it is possible in the future if we shall be good partners probably we could be magnificent pair. What do you think in this occasion Sean? But remember, Sean! We should study each other more! Really...? It is very important for me, Sean! The fact remains the fact in that that, on statistics the majority of pairs have been destroyed because of that that they could not trust in other person and that or concealed, and after it has been opened, felt like thrown and that that their treachery. And on this I do not want to make such mistake, I hope, what you understand me Sean, really? As I spoke you earlier, we should learn more about each other more and more from our e-mails. Dear Sean!!! Also I want to tell to you, what I would like to speak by with you to phone at once, I hope, whether that it is good idea, really, Sean? I want to hear your voice, Sean, I hope, that you want to hear my voice also. But unfortunately, I have no phone in our apartment at present because it is very expensive to install a telephone in an apartment, but probably we shall establish later as in some months as promised to give the discount to my parents. They older persons and on this when the turn will reach us, to us will establish phone under the small price. Also, I want to tell to you, that I was interested at ours in the manager of branch to use phone taking place on a post, but it has told to me, that this phone cannot be used thus as it in an internal network and I cannot call from him. Is as other phone, but you cannot call not him. It is connected with that that it is city type and on him bells from the population which act only is required the help. I do not know will change it that or whether or not, but from city on this phone it is possible to call under number (03) or on another emergency. Second number (14-54-21) it inside a network. Also I have asked to use phone in my friends, Elena and Scott also could not help me with it. Which telephone company Scott his number under his requirement used has closed and to restore his communication his written application in office of the company is necessary. It - a difficult situation with phone. The only thing that to me could come in a head for the decision of this problem use of public cable item. I think that from him I can call to you. This most optimum decision. For this purpose it is necessary for me to know your phone number. Sean, you can give me your number, your phone, and I can call to you from telegraph, please give me your telephone number, well? I have huge desire to hear your voice, Sean, I hope, that you want to hear my voice also. Please, send to me your telephone number in your following e-mail, well??? Please, do not overlook, Sean!

I hope, that it will be interesting to you to learn about me more. Really? I do not regret that I spent time that you have learned me. Sean, I would be grateful to you if you will write to me in your following e-mail about you, about your hobbies, you prefer what music? What cinema and another also? My favourite color is green as it is calming. By the way, my parents, and my friends have asked, that I transferred for you the big congratulations from them! It - as is usual.

Ekaterina Smirnova (Ussuriysk, Russia) 

Dear Sir, I am a 53 year old man and received this group of bogus love letters over the course of the past several days. They are identical to letters reported on your website on 3/21. I received these bogus love letters from “Ekaterina Smirnova” of Ussuriysk beginning on March 16. The letters arrive in my mailbox every day after I have sent her a letter the night before. The correspondence comes through at about 1:00PM New York time (which I believe is the middle of the night in Siberia, so they are probably being sent from elsewhere, perhaps USA). As is the case with all the other scam artists, there are never any responses to my questions or acknowledgement of particular pictures or things I have written about. Clearly, these letters are all composed as a generic “falling in love” group. Thanks in advance to your attention to these, and whatever you can do to warn other men or report the scam to authorities will be appreciated. (I was able to use your March 21 update by another correspondent to confirm the scam, so thank you). D. Brooks

My parents educated me good formation as you know I has finished the Ussuriysk state university on a speciality the ecologist. But nevertheless I do not work on this speciality. Sometimes at me in life there come such times, that I seem to me, that already for whom it is not necessary, that I shall stay one, but nevertheless I calm myself and I believe that the main love in my life still will come, the god will help me with it. Tell to me more about itself, you like to listen to what your liked dish, what your liked film, what else music.

From: Elena3 [], Sent: Monday, March 28, 2005 12:22 AM
Hello my new friend, I`m very happy to write you now!!! Last few days I was at my grannie's village, so that is why I received your e-mail just some minutes ago. Thank you for your photo, you very handsome man and I'm very happy that I meet you. First of all I have to explain you that i am from Palana,Koryak Autonomous Area, Russia. I made some mistakes in my registration on personals, sorry for that but it was my first time, i have never done it before, is it ok for you? Today I have deleted my profile, becouse I want start correspondence only with you. Today is very bad weather, we have first snow and temperatre -15C degrees. It's very strange for me to look for serious relationship in another country. My girlfriend adviced me to do it... She has a correspondence with the man from abroad. She is going to visit her man soon to Germany. I decided to look for a man abroad because I can't find the right man here. Maybe men are not responsible and they are not serious about creating of family. Are you serious about it? My parents permited me to look for a man in another country. So, my name is Elena. I told you about my name in my first message. I can write and speak English without anyone's help. I'd been learning English by myself for some years. I'm 25 years old (20th June). I live with my parents, and younger sister, she finished school and now she studies in the university. My parents work in big market. My work is to give private lessons of English. I teach little kids only (5-8 years). I have never been abroad, but I hope that someday I will visit other countries! I don't have a boyfriend here, I had few boyfriends, but russian men don't want to take care of their children (some of them don't want to have children at all ) and they can't provide a stable future to their wifes. Maybe it's boring but I want to know what will happen with me tomorrow. Some people don't like to think about the next day.. as for me I want to have a stable future.I like to write letters (usually I do it by hand, I don't have any foreign friends but I have many friends in Russia). My granny told me that she wrote letters to my grandfather when she was young . It was time of The Second World War. Now she is very happy that they didn't have computers and telephones because now she has letters from her husband (he was killed in the war). I know that sometimes she sits in her room, reading his letters and crying... My grandfather was the only man in her life, my mother loves only my father and I also want to find "my man". I don't believe in divorces. Please write me the full information about you, your work, where you live e.t.c. You can send me your photos and photos of your city if you want!!! . I have few questions for you. What do you want from our relationship???? How is the weather is in your city?? Do you like animals? I don`t have a computer at my home and I use an Internet Cafe in my city. Oh... sorry for my long letter.. I'm very romantic person. I like to write long letters. Now I`ll go home and prepare a supper for my parents and me and tomorrow morning I`ll go to Internet Cafe and I`ll look an e-mail from you!!! Many Kisses for my new friend!!!! Elena. PS: Today I send you few my photos, this photos I made in home 1 month ago.
