Hello, my dear friend Dave.
First I want to tell you many thanks that you have answered my message. For me it was very big pleasure, that we with you can begin acquaintance. My friend Dave (I hope, that you not against I name you the friend), I live in Russia in city of Omsk. Yes I know, that my profile is spoken that by I from USA, but I did not have other choice for creation of a profile. Now I shall explain all to you, the manager the internet of cafe at once has warned me, that because of often deceits on the internet many sites of acquaintances do not suppose creation of a profile from Russia. I hope, that you of me will understand and for us it does not become a problem. Ok? Certainly, this situation with deceivers becomes a handicap for many acquaintances to the Russian women. Therefore, when I speak you about it, I understand, that you can concern to me with suspicion. And this suspicion can become a handicap for sincere letters. All right, I hope, that our acquaintance will not be stopped because of people which deceive each other. Unfortunately in our world really it is a lot of deceit. And that our world had less deceit, it is necessary to be fair. And we should bear the responsibility before the friend the friend. And any relations should be truthful. It is good, if you are not frightened by all this, that I have written to you, I want to tell to you about me directly:
my real name Aleksandra, me of 28 years. My growth 168 ( 5,6 ), weight - 56,5. ( 123 ). On a nationality I russian, I believe in the god, and I christian. I believe that any relationship must have God at the center for it to be sucessful. I like sports and long walk and I think, that main is our health. Therefore I do not smoke, I do not drink, in a word, I adhere of a healthy image of life, and it is pleasant to me. I am a romantic, calm and peaceful person. I am responsible, independent and diplomatic. I have great intuition, able to adapt to different situations, balanced and sensitive. I value coziness and comfort at home, family life means a lot to me. I cook well. I like both noisy parties and calm solitude with quiet music, it depends on my mood. I am looking for a kind caring compassionate man that knows how to respect a woman and should expect the same in return. I am looking for someone that likes the outdoors. A partner with a heart that does not want to disappoint God. A man with honesty and strong faith. A gentleman who enjoys good conversation and treats others with respect. Someone I can hold gently and be sweet to who receives love and returns it. He is health-conscious, physically fit, and attractive, and we will have great chemistry together. Certainly, I understand, that ideal people do not exist and in me the same is lacks (I can not sleep without light, I very much trustful) but if in you there are even 10 % of that I have described I shall be very glad to receive from you the letter. Please inform more about itself, than you are engaged? With the best regards, Aleksandra.

PS. I also shall be glad with each your letter to receive from you photos!!!

Letter 2

Hello again my dear friend Dave.
It is very glad, that we with you can continue acquaintance, not looking that we from the different countries. I want to tell to you about me much and I hope, that you will follow to my example and not when not that from me will not hide. Ok!!! I am very glad to receive yours photo, you attractive and beautiful, I am glad to our acquaintance. I one and not when was not married. Waiting to find my soulmate. I have kept my self pure and would like to save my self only for my male, if you know what I mean. I am not saying that I am a sacred, I mean I have done things in the flesh that I should not have, but I have not slept with a male. I think, that now it is high time to cast in the lot with my future beloved as people with age become wiser and understand value of the family center. I tried to get acquainted with the male here in Russia, but our russian male have got to themselves world "glory" the impetuous drunkenness. It is impossible to tell, that in other countries there is no problem of alcohol, but such scales where is not present, and I do not want such future. As in Russia the criminal case is advanced,
that on evenings it is dangerous to leave to take a walk in another's areas. Certainly the militia tries to
counteract gangsters, but at them because around corruption not always turns out. I hope you will understand me correctly, I to you do not complain and in Russia it is possible to live. But if I want to find my soulmate and to create family, why I can not do it abroad,in better life conditions and with more stable economical situation than in Russia? I have no false ideas about daily life abroad. I understand it is not the paradise, and people have a lot of problems and they are forced to work hard too, as well as here. You know a legend about "halfs" earlier, people, the male and woman, were a single unit and were inseparable, they were happy and enjoyed each instant of life, because they were together. They were born per one day, and they lived all life in of love and consent. But has come black day for all people, they have angered of the god, and he has found severe punishment for them, he has divided them into two half, and has scattered them on all world. Now they in eternal searches they search for the half, what incorporate to her and to remain together on eternal. But sometimes it is delayed for years or decade, some even die not not finding the happiness not comprehend true love. I do not want to hasten with you in our acquaintance as it is very responsible step for me and for you. And it can become the present turn in our lifes. I hope, that our acquaintance not casual, his this desire, desire of God. Oops!!! I so have taken a great interest, that have not noticed as have passed time, I wanted to write the biography, but unfortunately on it to me will come to close the letter to you as to me it is time to go, but you do not worry I very soon to you I shall come back and we with you shall continue our acquaintance, I in the
following letter shall write to you the biography.
See you soon, yours Aleksandra.

PS. On it a photo, I and my cat, his name is Vasja. I very much like animal, but other animals at me
are not present.

Letter 5

Hello my dear Dave.
I'm very happy to receive your answer and I very much appreciate it. I have received your photo and map Omsk. It is pleasant to speak with the man from other continent and understand that I can find general language with the man which has grown in other culture, in other country. Today here is perfect day and there is a lot of to people in streets of city. I come to an idea that I would like to walk with you sometime as simply as other people do it. I'm really very lonely in my life and it occurs from lack of mutual understanding between the people. All of us hurry up somewhere, we hasten some where and practically we don't notice each other. The people so strongly are in the ideas and problems, that sometimes it is very difficult to knock up to consciousness of other man. They look at you as it seems, they talk to you as it seems, but by detailed consideration we make only common phrases. Very seldom on a question: " how are your businesses? " - we can hear about a real situation of things in life of the man. Did you notice ever how open some children can be? It's so perfect. I very much would like to find the man,
which would be open and always be young soul. And else I very much frequently think of the responsibility, which we accept, when we occur in life any man. When we interfere in someone's life, becoming the friends or beloved, we carry huge responsibility for an emotional condition and further behaviour those with whom we communicate. Each minute, each word can turn the further life of the man by a completely uncertain image. Unfortunately not everybody understand this so deeply, and many people didn't reflect on it at all. The human indifference to all except for itself is the basic factor, which defines the majority of things concerning the man and woman in the modern world. We think of ourselves and about our feelings very much, but aren't noticing that occurs in soul of the close man. I'm tired from this indifference and I want to be near to man,which will love me,will understand me and will be thinking about that he does and what speaks..... Excuse, that I have given vent to you to my soul today, but I would want that you knew it. I hope that you understand me and that I write you. You became very dear to me and I would like to develop our attitudes on a way of mutual understanding and respect.
Yes, I nearly have not overlooked, I have informed my parents about you. That we have acquaintance. I have told my parents a little about you. In the beginning, they have considered cautiously to ours to attitudes. But subsequently, mum sends the regards to you. She hopes, that in the future we shall be magnificent pair. If it is fair, I too think so. But we know each other absolutely short period of time. And I think, that early to speak about it. I simply have not anybody, except for you, whom I can inform these words. And I really hope for continuation of our attitudes. I think, that you not against.
With the best wishes Aleksandra. 

Letter 6

Hi my love Dave!
I am very glad to read your letter as they give me confidence with the happy future. You know, in the childhood I dreamed, that I shall find the prince , with whom I can come on edge of the ground. In a consequence, I have understood, that actually there are no princes. Ideal the man cannot be found. But close to an ideal which is necessary for you, you can find. I can not tell you with confidence, that you - my ideal. No. You too can not tell, that I - your ideal. But in it the reason, what people fall in love? No.
The reason here in many respects. I can not explain an origin of love. I can not explain why the woman draws to the man. I can not explain why the man draws to the woman. It occurs at a subconscious level.
Private world of the person informs to the person about it. And in a consequence, you understand, that it is the truth. I write you it, that you could understand what to be created in my ideas. I understand, that you are intended for me, but I am afraid to inform you about it. I also am afraid to tell you that the love to you has come in my heart. I am afraid to tell you, that I love you. I am afraid to tell it as the love should be mutual. My mum also speaks me, that I should be more cautious with the feelings. With feeling of love, the person does many nonsenses. And I not exception. You know, when I have decided to begin acquaintance through the Internet, I thought about myself. (for fun or seriously) It is interesting, if I shall find the love in your country, I should go in your country? ( it there were my ideas before I have got acquainted with you) Further, I did not think of it. But time has come, when I should think of it. I think that you agree with me. My lovely, my dear, I am afraid to speak you about it, but I LOVE YOU!!!
And I shall wait for the letter from you with impatience.
Your Aleksandra. 

Letter 7

Hi my love Dave!
I have received your letter, it of full sincere heat and sympathy to me. I think that, for that time that we with you are copied we very much were pulled together and between us the feeling has appeared. I think that we are necessary each other. I constantly think of you, you has occupied a place in my heart. At work my girlfriends speak that I am in love. Yes I love you Dave!!!!! I thought of our relations much and have come to a conclusion, that it is love. Association of our intelligence, abilities and potential opportunities becomes a good basis for creation and development of high-grade future posterity. When I think of you Dave, I understand, that such clever, erudite, intelligent, interesting, independent the man to meet in our society it is improbable and it is problematic. We with you adults, serious people, and perfectly realize, that together to us it is better. Now our life has found sense. Being realists, I think, both of us realize, that our meeting could not take place casually. And our relations develop not as relations of simply familiar people. At them definitely there is something the greater, is love. I talked about it to the mum and she speaks that it well, she thinks that I shall be happy. In Russia all men dream only to drag you in bed, but I do not want it, I do not want be given back the first passer that he has taken pleasure. Love it something more than it give the man to learn happiness in this life, and men represent it only as sex, I think that it not correctly and I hope that you with me agree. I want have sex only with favourite by the man. I give him completely both body and soul. We together learn all depths pleasures. Our passion will be poured out for limits peoples love and we shall be enjoy the friend the friend all life up to last moment of our existence. I feel that ours hearts are beaten in one rhythm, and you feel it? I wait for your letter Dave, whether it is important me know you share my ideas.
Forever Yours Aleksandra. 

Letter 8

Hello Dave. I am VERY SORRY that I could not write to you earlier! I am sorry, that a lot of time was required for me so much to write to you the letter. I hope that you will understand me. It was connected to tragedy - my girlfriend Olga has died, she had ill kidneys and they have killed her. And to me it was necessary urgently to leave for other city on funeral. When I about it have learned, I did not have time to inform you about it, because I very urgently have left  from my city. I could not at once leave from there, because for hers mother it there was a not filling loss and it was very difficult to her by one to cope with this large loss. I thought, that I shall stay there some days, but have passed more time. I could not leave from there parents Olga support was necessary. For his father it too was big shock. They constantly cried also to their mountain was most of all on this light, because they have lost most dear that at them was and that at them could be is their child Olga. The child for which they have lived all life and for which they have devoted the life. They would prefer to die together them daughter. It is very sad. I very many tears have spilled together with them. But to live all the same is necessary. For this all time I very much on you missed, but I could not leave them in such difficult time, my help and my support was required him, we talked also by him it became slightly easier. I have arrived recently and at once has come to write you letter. I very much hope on yours a prompt reply.
Yours Aleksandra.

Letter 10

Hello my love, my destiny Dave. I am again very happy to see your letter. With each your letter my life finds sense and I understand, that is the man for the sake of which I is ready to live. Let while you it is far from me, but I feel all your heat, all your love and care of me through yours Dave, letters. I start to understand, that my life without you not that does not mean, because I of you I like. I spoke with mum that probably I shall leave to you. She has looked at me and has smiled, having told: " you all correctly you do, I am very glad for both of you, that the distance for your love it only number on which is not necessary to pay attention for the sake of love ". Sometimes to me it becomes sad, because I shall leave, and parents will stay here and I shall be on them to miss. I have told mum, that I each day shall send them on e-mail letters. To me it is sad, but as soon as I start to think, dream of you, my grief at once passes. I each day dream of us, about our joint days. In my dream we were at you at home. The fireplace was the only light in the room, and we were sitting on a large fur rug on the floor in front of it. My heart has been totally captured by you! We sat for a while just looking into each other's eyes. We then leaned toward each other and shared a long, passionate kiss. It seemed as if time were standing still for us. Our bodies came together and we made love for the first time. Afterwards, we laid there holding each other and professing our love. I each day think of you Dave. On work I talked to colleagues and they speak, that official registration of papers for arrival abroad it is a lot of cost, approximately 1500 dollars. Therefore it not so a trustworthy information. Within the limits of the next several days I shall find out it. And then I shall inform about it more precisely. I still need to consult to mum about charges for arrival to you, but I think that with it there will be no problems. Dave, say, if I will have difficulties with payment of trip, whether you partially can help? But if you will have financial difficulties, do not worry, I shall try to consult itself. Very much I hope, that your help is not required, all will develop successfully and soon we can embrace each other. Lovely Dave, I hope, that we was valid we can together. Now it is my purpose, it is my dream, it is everything for the sake of what I shall live. Lovely Dave, I want to be with you.
I love you and for ever in your ideas.
Forever yours Aleksandra. 

Letter 11

Hello my love Dave.
I am again happy to see your letter. All necessary documents and services of the company will cost 450 dollars and 750 air tickets. In general I need 1200 dollars. Lovely, you can find out this information it is direct from visa agency they work with the American embassy since 1991 and well know all "reefs" of process of registration of visas in this embassy. Lovely, I am very sad, when I have found out cost of the visa. I simply can not pay it. For me it is impossible, as I earn the salary 140 dollars per one month. 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 asked my mother about our savings she said that the money should not be a barrier between two people which love each other. 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. I asked the advice my mother and she said that maybe you can help me, because you loves me. I asked her how he can help me, because he is far from me. My mother said that you can send the money through company which make this service. I asked about it, on my work and I know now, that exists reliable and fast company, which makes remittances in world and 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:
Country: Russia
City: Omsk
Name: Aleksandra
Lastname: Liholetova
Address of branch of western union:
zipcode: 644001,
Street. Kuibyshev, 79
The phone: 3812 53-51-76
I must know your full name, full address and 10 figures (MTCN)
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 in all. My love I need 1200 american 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 fact, 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 Dave!!! 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.
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 Aleksandra.

Hi, again!
Elena's here and I'm really glad to have a feedback from you. Honestly, I did not believe much in this, but subconciously hoped.. So I'm pleasantly surprised and flattered:-). Of course, everything changes , but I quite sincerely would like to meet a nice man in my life I can feel comfortable and excited with. Somehow I have grown up quicker than girls and boys of my age and in spite of normally young people want to only jump from bed to bed, I feel I want more. I want somebody i can talk to, laugh with and not vanish after a few nights togather)). Actually, I am quite satisfied with life I have, at least i have a great 
job. It's a rare thing when you really like your job. As for me, I do what I love there - I dance. Sometimes I need more patience, because i also teach people and sure they can not do it all the way i do. But my 
task is to show and explain. I have many people i can call friends and no problem with entertainment.. .you know, companies to go to the bar togather but i don't know how all those boys and girls will show themselves when something happen. We never know people up to the end, but it doesn't mean i don't have faith in people.I never expect bad things from people, i think most are good.But most are too easy about all. And I feel there are something heavier in life.. Maybe i just want something new. And i want it to be a man:-) A real man, not a boy. I live apart from my parents now, made this decision mainly not because we did not put up togather ( though we had fights of course in some periods), but because i needed this experience. They understood too that I need some space (in the meaning of territory as well, because they have 2 small rooms only in their apartment and one was always mine as a child :-) and a period to try to leave alone in the begining of a grown up life). We are in good relations, i can visit them any time and they are always happy to see me. We talk much more about real things now. What else?.. I like movies, nice food, nature(in a sensible proportion) and books. I am so surprised people do not read much, they just don't know how many good books there are in the world. It's a pity you can't manage them all even in a lifetime. My parents say, ten years ago everybody read books in a subway. Now a lot of men and women just sit with their eyes on a spot in the wall, thinking God knows what to themselves..)) I don't know how it is in your country, I mean i read about your country, i
read about many countries but you can't shape your vision of people from other countries only after reading) .  People need communication. Moscow is a very big place, foreign dancers and other foreigners often come here and I had opportunities to communicate. But not a lot. And it also applies to my English. If I say something wrong, please correct me, I am aware my English is not perfect. I have learnt it for several years but when spoke to those foreigners, it was specific, professional language. I can speak everyday language too, but with mistakes of course. Okay, enough about me for now, I desperately want to hear something about you. Not something, but all you want to tell, all that comes to your mind while you write a letter to me. I can not ask questions, especially general questions, like what you like to do in your free time, who was your first love etc. "A free flow" is more interesting for me and more important. I have a great intuition about people, so you can tell me first thing that appear in
your head:-) Looking forward to hear from you!!
Sinceerly yours,

Letter 3
My dear Bill!
You know, sometimes, things go not exactly the way we want them to. Remember, i told you about my arrangement to go to the USA for work? Well, i don't know what kind of news it is good or bad,, on the one hand, it is good, because i have all settled with my work visa, it is in the consulate here in Moscow, waiting for one thing - when i buy the ticket to where it should be bought; NY in my case. But the employer rep told the conditions changed - they have less scholarships now and have less funds allocated by their management for this programme. So they decuded they would keep only two
contracts with two our most popular guys and 2 or three scholarships. "Trainees" were not included:((
Of course, they did not promise us anything with 100% guarantee; and no contract was signed so far (they said we would sign the contract later) but it is all not very pleasant anyway. There stll are 
options when people may go there but have everything at their expense including attending dance classes, which is most expensive. I had some money which i planned to have just in case and i theoretically might live on them while in the US, but not sure if that will be enough and..everything looks not so reliable now without supporting organization. I mean, theoretically i still may go, i have all i need for that except ticket, but what will i go for? I spoke to many others, who were refused just like me. Most of them gave up and expect more chances will appear, which i am honestly not sure of at all. Some have friends or even relatives in different US states, they will buy tickets to thosed places and go visit . I need to say, i am really dissaproved and i still haven't worked out the complete plan, though it would be great to go anyway.. It is always feels so bad, when you suddenly have to give up on your childish dream ..:-) Most childish dreams can not be explained ot it takes to much to explain, but what I know they are worth to realize. And it gives you a splash of energy to realize you realized it). To add up, i secretly hoped to meet you there, because i like you.. You seem to be a nice and decent man, you know.. the kind i call "real"). The kind i hope to meet i my life after all those "easy flow boys", not thinking alot. ...I know that there are a few billiard people in the world and everybody we meet is a chance we take or not take in the end.Do you mind being mine chance for now? It may work out or not but I feel if I don't say this now, I might feel sorry about it after. I don't know what you will say about this but a crazy thought came to my mind : what if i use the passport and visa i have and come just to see you? We could communicate, we could spend some time togather and see what happens. Like i said before, except good job, i need a good man in my life). It's no guarantee at all of course, but just another chance. You may like this suggestion or not, i don't know, but if you like it, we might give it a try. Just for your information - i have some money i saved  which i planned to take with me to America, this is around 400 dollars. But the round trip ticket with an open date which the dancing school wanted to finance costs about 850 US dollars. I suppose i have no right to ask you for this, so if you say no, that's it. But if you could help me with another $450, i could come to New York and we could meet there, or other idea, i could fly from New York directly to you. What do you think?.. As soon as i will buy tickets US Consulate will provide me my documents. I have checked flights in local Airlines - Aeroflot and i could be in New York 15th of May by Boeing 767 at 10:30 am NYC time, flight number - SU 317 from Moscow (SVO-2) to NYC (JFK), so we could meet in 10 days. How does it sound for you?
I kiss you, Elena
P.S. Instead of photos, i made it today. Look when you have time and tell me if you liked it, i have several bikini photos, also i will make a video for you today and you will get it soon :-) !

Letter 4
Hello, my dearest Bill,
I am really happy your answer was like that and getting excited again. Turns out, everything still may change in the positive way at the very last moment, thank you for making me believe in luck!!! I included bikini pictures from Anapa on Black Sea, i took them last summer, hope you will like. Also here is the video i promised. About the sending thing: I spoke to the bank here and they gave me information i have to tell you so that you could send the money all right. First, there is a thing called "Western Union". This is big world system which helps people all over the world send money to eavh other when needed. People at the bank said it is reliable, because it is electronic. To use it, you need to know the following information about me: 
My name - Elena Potehina
My address - Eniseiskaya st., 24, apt.17; 125047(zip code); Moscow, Russia.
You may send the money to the bank closest to where i live - 
address: Leninskii Prospekt, 22; 129110(zip code); Moscow, Russia.
I want to thank you again for giving us that chance and tell you that i feel wonderful, because i still secretly hope, something may work out between us, my dear Bill.
Very, very, very best,
Your Elena.

Letter 5
I think you don't understand me Bill, i mentioned that i'll be happy if you will help me with 450 and send it to me via western union. You've asked how you can send it to me in your previous letter and i have told you about this system. Because if you can't help me i can't fly in New York. I'll be there for a month and can come back home anytime durung 30 days. Hope to hear from you soon, please read my previous letter again, i have told you how you can send money. 
I kiss you,

agency for work and renewal of documents. The manager informed me that it is necessary to pay now, but right now I do not have enough money to pay it. The boss has told that I can receive the salary at the end of a month together with all workers, and it is necessary for me now. I very much asked him about this service, but he was rested, annoying and cannot help me. And time goes also to me very much it would be desirable to find now 450 dollars to pay services of the company. At me will be money, but it will be not earlier than in 2 weeks. And I wanted to prepare for this time new documents on me and on the daughter.

relying money. And he has told that I should fulfil up to the end of this month that they could find to me replacement for this time. And then I can leave from this firm.

All the time I was anxious why my questions seemed to go unheard and I became suspicious. She asked me to direct some money to her friend Olga Sergeeva whos name also appears on the scammers black list. I mentioned this then recieved this letter.

I tracked the emails and they are originating from the USA somewhere around California.

Natalya Alekseeva aka Nastasia Chirimisova - Kotlas, Russia 

I am Steve from San Diego CA. I was first contacted by Natalya on 10 Mar 06, and I am still in contact with this person. Last letter was 6 May 06. First she contacts you and tells you about her and City of Koltas, Russia. Also asks you to reply only if you are interested in a serious relationship. Tells you how she saw your profile and likes what she reads. After 4 or 5 letters she now tells you her real ? name and that she was using a pseudonym to start. Then in the next couple of letters how much in love she is with you, cant live without you and wants to marry you. By letter 10-12 she wants to come to meet you but because of her small salary needs help to get to Moscow, and file for K-1 Visa, Visa of the bride. $410. But wants you to send the money in the name of her aunt who lives in Moscow, Natalia Rechkova. Then when in Moscow ?, she writes and says that her visa is rejected because she does not have plane tickets or money to travel with to enter this country. $1400-2200. I became very suspicious at this point and wrote her that in would be a couple of months to save that much for her. the last letter I received was on 6 May 06 saying she would go home and wait for me to send the money then would come to me.
Natalya contacted me from 
Address; Natalya Alekseeva

I have attached some new pictures of her. I am very grateful to this web site for someone posting her on it in Dec 05, Jan 06, Mar 06., As I might have fallen for her scam and sent her the money for tickets and travel money.
