Feedback about Russian women Black List

A couple of years ago, when I was new to looking for a partner via the internet, the Russian Women Blacklist saved me from being scammed out of quite a sum of money. I vowed to return the favor someday by posting something that might save another unsuspecting guy some $$$. I just hope that the other guys she is stringing along have enough sense to look here!

Scamming†may not be a crime, but stealing money is. I am going to nail†these guys, if its the last thing I do. Thank you†for fighting the good fight.†We should all stand together to†rid the world of this scum.

I was not in the pursuit of buying a bride much less love†and had never heard of mail order bride until now. I honestly felt I was doing the right thing because I believed still in all the good things in life. It was my belief mail order brides was all part of old westerns but not something that existed this day and age. Now after research I have discovered that some vile evil persons use that concept to prey on honest singles whose only real interest is to find other serious minded singles in the pursuit and fulfillment†of life long dreams and steal their money by making misleading and false promises.

Olga Pageneeva (Kirov, Russia)

I am a 43 year old male, white American living in Massachusetts.

In late July 2006 I received an unsolicited message from an "Olga" on Being much older than "Olga" I immediately suspected something fishy... but I played along. It wasn't long before she started writing about wanting to visit me. After several alleged meetings with a travel agency and sinking $500 or so into travel arrangements she initiated without my consent, she began trying to guilt me into sending her money (approximately $1000) to complete the travel. My suspicions grew with every one of her letters, and I decided to Google some of the text within them... and lo and beyond I came upon your website and found exact phrases as in other people's letters. Bingo!

As of now I told "Olga" that I will have the money ready to bring to Western Union tomorrow. As suggested on this site I will continue to play along by giving "Olga" a bogus Western Union number. I had planned on waiting a day or two and writing back to her, telling her how I was mugged on the way to Western Union and had all the money stolen -- similar to what these "ladies" write as their excuse as to why they couldn't make the trip to the United States. As with all the other stories listed, Olga's photos look like they're straight out of a fashion magazine.

Here are her letters:

JULY 28, 2006

Hi my lovely Paul! I am very glad to news from you. Paul, yesterday I
could not send you the letter because I had no opportunity to enter
into the Internet. In our apartment phone is not established and
consequently my computer has no input in a network. Usually at itself
in an apartment I write down the message to you on a disk, and then I
go with it to the girl familiar to me, in pair houses from me, that
about her computer to enter into the Internet and to take away your
letters. But yesterday she was absent at home. I hope, what you Paul

contract that to me will already not return money which I have paid.

But you too should understand. Unless I one can do such way. If you

you understand me. I would like ask you you can to take the loan in
bank or to borrow from friends.I shall try too to find this money. You

achieve it. You agree with me? I shall look forward to hearing from

can send money through the western union. My information for this
purpose:first name is Olga, last name is Pageneeva (Russia , Kirov,
Street Chehova 6A, postal index 610005.). I very much hope that we
soon shall together. I frequently think of it. These ideas give me it
is a lot of pleasure, but also they give me a lot of excitement. I
very much worry, when I present for myself that moment, when we in to
the airport for the first time we shall see each other. I am afraid,
that suddenly, because of confusions, you will meet not joyfully me.
We write each other, that very gently we shall meet each other. But on
e-mail it is simple to speak such things. And when actually, we appear
the friend before the friend during the first moment there can be a
uncertainty and confusion. From it our behaviour can be, what we
expect. I think, that for the first time in a new place, among set of
strangers- I shall test the big confusion and I can not show the
initiative to to you Paul. Also, I very much worry concerning our the
first evenings together. Lovely, inform me the ideas about it. I hope,
that you the first will show the initiative because I shall be very
much to worry. Probably, I tested similar excitement, when for the
first time in life, I reached at school on the first examination. That
you you feel be relative it? As you imagine for this yourself the
moment? Inform me Paul, what weather at you is expected forthcoming
month. I should choose and prepare carefully for clothes, that to look
very well. I would not want to be dressed not for a climate. it is an
important point - clothes for the woman. Write to me loved favourite

Alla Fedotova (Gatchina, Russia) aka Ekaterina Kochkaryova, Natalia Konarshaya, and Sofya Efimova

Hi all! My name is Austin. I'm a 34-year-old, single professional living in the United States. I have been a member of for the past three years as I search for the 'right one'. In the past few months I have received emails from several Russian women. They each follow the same basic format: 1) Their profiles state they live in the U.S. - It is not until contact is made that they correct themselves. At that point they claim they were mistaken in their profile or they weren't able to choose 'Russia' ; 2) Their profiles include at least one very appealing, attractive photo to catch your attention; 3) Profiles become 'inactive' soon after contact is made; 4) Emails stress the importance of honesty, family, and finding the 'favorite' man or soulmate; 5) Emails quickly become romantic as they profess their feelings of love and devotion; 6) Accompanying pictures become more revealing; 7) Money is eventually requested to cover expenses for visa, travel, family emergency, etc. 

I was not aware of this scam until recently. A special thanks goes out to this site!!! It is now obvious that every Russian 'woman' that has contacted me through has actually been a blood-sucking scam artist. Fortunately, I did not send any money. I have, however, wasted significant time emailing those I thought to be true. I plan to post each of their names, emails and photos on this site and others. Hopefully it well help someone as it has helped me. I contacted regarding the scam and have NOT received a response. Since my last communication with a known scammer several more have tried to contact me. It seems there is something of a 'Russian Invasion' going on! has shown either a lack of concern or inability to help. It's very annoying considering I am paying for that service! I am considering discontinuing my account with them.

My advice to everyone involved in internet dating is to be vigilant. My mother always said that "if it seems too good to be true, it probably is." In this case I think she's right. Spread the word to your friends and colleagues so that people become aware of this scurge on the internet dating world. Awareness is the best defense. 

Alla Fedotova of Gatchina, Russia contacted me through 'She' has used the email addresses and She also has photos posted at: I corresponded with this person for about six weeks before 'she' asked for visa money in the amount of $267 to be sent via Western Union, MoneyGram or credit card. I was already highly suspicious by then and did not send any money. Instead I suggested that it would be cheaper and easier for me to come see her in Russia. To that there was no direct reply...just more pleas for money as she claimed to have only seven days to get the visa without trouble. I have not responded to the additional requests and have not heard anything further. 

I have since found copies of the same emails under other names on this site. Same exact emails, different alias and different photos. I have found the messages under the names: Ekaterina Kochkaryova, Natalia Konarshaya, and Sofya Efimova. Below I have included samples of the emails I received and have also attached photos. 

It's easy to see why many of us could be sucked in. The pictures being used in these scams are of girls that are pretty damn hot! Be careful out there guys...stay vigilant and don't send any of these low-life parasites your hard-earned cash! 

Good Luck...

Email #1: First contact thru

It happened suddenly that I saw your profile and I couldnt stand from writing
to you. I will be very happy to get to know you better.
Life is a very complicated thing. And you never know what will happen one day. 
People could meet and understand they were meant for each other. And they could
live a happy life together for the rest of the life. Or they could be
lonely for long time and be afraid to have new relations. So I dont want to 
miss a chance of my life and find a person I could live with and have strong
and happy family with.
I would really like to know more about you. Hope you too. So, please, ask me any
questions you have and I will gladly answer them. As soon as I get your 
reply, I will tell you more about myself, my life, my interests.
Have a nice day!
I am waiting impatiently for your reply.
Actually I live in Ru_s_s_ia. I was mistaken when filled a profile.
I hope in it there is nothing terrible and you don't afraid Russian woman! 
I promise you will not be disappointed!!!
Please, don't make me wait for long.:-)

reply me at

Please see my pics

Email #2: Her follow-up to my reply

Sorry!!!!!! I could not answer you earlier.
I did not see your letter. It has been placed in spam folder.
I do not know why it happens.
Probably it is a mistake of a server.
I shall disconnect spam filter. Also I hope my letter 
it will not be placed in yours spam the filter.
Check it more often.
I am glad that you have answered me. If I am still
interesting to you, write to me.
My name is Alla. I am 28 years old (still young but mature enough to know what I want in this life). 
But also there are different ways to call me tenderly,
like Allochka.
My height is 167 cms(it 5.5 foots), my weight is 56 kgs.
I am in a good shape. I am not skinny but look really nice.
I am not boasting, it is true. 
I take good care of myself as I care of my appearance but
I am not fanatic.
I have a higher education. I studied on the faculty of
Russian language. So I am very good at Russian as you see
I have also finished courses of a medical nurse and can 
make massage too. I should say I am rather good at it.
My family is not really big. I have a step father and stepbrother.
Unfortunately, I don't have really close relations with them.
Sometimes we gather for holidays but it happens very seldom. 
I feel very sad saying this but my mother died from the cancer.
I loved her very much and I miss her badly.
I live alone. And I have to learn for my living. I could
work as a teacher of Russian. But teachers get very small 
salaries in Russia. And I need to earn for my living myself.
That's why I have finished courses.
Now I work as a medical nurse in the private clinic.
And I also do massage, it is my extra work. Thus how I earn 
for my living. I am not complaining but it is really a hard
work. I should always be kind and polite though with some
people it seems to be impossible. I don't want to loose
my job. So I try always to be patient even with rude people. 
And what is more important, I get moral satisfaction helping
people. It is my contribution into the world.
The city I live in is called Gatchina. These are 40 kilometers
from St.-Petersburg.
I live in Gatchina. But I work in St.-Petersburg. Almost 
every day I should go 40 kilometers for work, and back home.
We have many places of interests and lots of historical
places. I enjoy walking there. Also we have some theatres
and cinemas.
I want to have my own family very much. You know, family is 
like a castle. Nobody can't break it if you really love your
family and fight for it. It is a place where you come with
joy and happiness.
And you feel bad and sad your family will always support you.
This is what I am looking for. I am looking for a person who 
would be with me in bad and in good times. It is so important
to know that there is a person who need you and that you
are not alone in this world any more. Do you agree?
Now you will have an idea of who I am. 
Ok, I will stop here and tell you more in my next letters.
I will be waiting impatiently for your reply.
Enjoy your day!

yours Alla

Here is some of my pics

P.S. Please, answer me asap that I knew that 
I am interesting to you.

Email #3: A sample from later correspondence

Hi sunshine!!!
One thought came into my mind today.
I would like to ask you what you value in a person most
of all. An
And what you value in a woman most of all?
In men I most of all appreciate Kindness, Love and Honesty. 
Do you ever watch French movies, old ones and new?
You know, there is something that I like about French women?
Something in their eyes, how they move, how they look at you,
how they smile. They are real women. Maybe it is only in movies, 
but I like this type of women very much. They are very sensual
and sexy in their own way.
Appearance is very important but what is more important is
one's soul.
When the soul is beautiful, a person looks more beautiful 
too. But when the soul is dark and dirty, you can always see
it on his appearance. I appreciate very much honest, open,
easy-going people. The one I could trust and tell what is
inside myself. And also a kind person could always make you 
feel better with his kindness, care and love. I miss my mum
so badly. She was a wonderful person, a very caring one.
And she loved me very much. She will always be a very
important person for me.
I know she is somewhere there in the Heaven and she watches 
me and protects me. And I try to do good things in life so
she could be proud of meÖ.Sorry, I am trying not cry writing
this. It is very difficult. Thank you for being there and
listening to me. I feel your support even though you are far 
from me. But the distance is nothing when two people like
each other and feel comfortable with each other. One day
there will be no distance between us and we will look into
each others eyes and will say everything we feel to each other. 
Sorry but I will close here for today. I feel very sad and
vulnerable now. I will go home thinking of you. I want to get
your letter very much, it will uplift my spirit and I will
feel I am not alone any more. 
Miss you and your letters...

Email #4: Example of proclaimed romantic interest

Hi sweetheart
Hope you don't mind me calling you like this. But you are
such a sweet person. And I am so happy having you in my life.
I am sorry for complaining sometimes in my letters. But
I trust you very much and I accept you as a very close person 
and sometimes I allow myself to be a little weak with you.
I wish I could make something for you to thank you for everything.
Hope one day we will meet with you and be sure massage is
waiting for you. I am sorry for complaining in my previous letter. 
I just wanted to share my feelings with you. Please, forgive me.
Sometimes I am trying to imagine how it would be when we meet.
And I am getting so romantic at this time that can even imagine
this situation in all colors. 
Do you want me to share this with you?
I am staying in the airport and there is a glass wall dividing
us from each other. I see you standing there with a bunch of
red roses. And I see myself in a light pink long dress. The 
wind is blowing at my hair and my lips are so soft and I have
a pink gloss on them. I am trying to say something to you but
you don't hear me. I start laughing as you can't understand what
I am trying to say to you. And then you start laughing too. 
I am coming closer to you. I feel so nervous and excited at
the same time. I see that you feel the same. I open my lips and
you hear at last what I tried to say some minutes ago.
"Thank you. I am happy!" Simple words but there is so much in 
them. Thank you for making me happy. Thank you for being with
me. Thank you for make feel complete. Thank you for being in
my life. Thank you for everything.
Please, accept these words. This is what I feel now... 
Please, answer my question, do you want me to come to you or not?
Of course, it will be in some time but I would just like to know
that one day we will meet with you and that you really would me
to be in your life. I can come to you with the visit for 10 
or 15 days. I just want us to see each other and if we like each
other, we can start thinking of our future together.
You see again and again I share my feelings with you. Something
strange is going on with me. I feel butterflies inside my stomach. 
And this feeling makes me feel very happy but scares me at the
same time. I think I have to think carefully what's going on
with me. All these drives me crazy but in a good way. I like
this feelings very much. Everything looks different from the 
time I met you through the Internet. I myself look different.
There is something in my eyes, they sparkling. Even my friends
say this. They have noticed that some changes are happening in me.
Well, I will not torture you with my thoughts any more. 
Thinking of you...

Email #5: Change of email address

Please write me at my new address -
I was told at the Internet cafe that hackers have deleted my last e-mail address... 

Email #6: Professions of Love

My dear!!!
Please, don't be shocked with what you will read now.
I was scared myself when I understood it yesterday. I was
thinking of what was going on with me. Every morning I get
up with the thought of you and every evening I go to bed 
with the thoughts of you. There is some kind of chemistry
in the air. I can't live without your letters. I got used to
you so much. All I need now is to get a letter from you, to
know that you are well and you are thinking of me too. I can't 
do anything, I can't concentrate. I go to work and it is a
torture for me as I can't really do anything, talk to anybody.
All I do is thinking of you. I think I am in love with you.
I know what you think now. I am scared myself as it is unusual 
for me too. But I will die if you tell me you don't need me
any more. I would give everything in the life just to be with
you right now, to see your wonderful and kind eyes, to
understand that you feel the same. Every part of my body aches 
for you.
I am mad at myself. This shouldn't happen to me. At least
I shouldn't tell this to you. This is wrong. But what can
I do. I can't just stand aside. I need you to understand me.
Perhaps, you don't feel the same about me. But I feel that 
you have something for me too. If you don't, I will understand.
But I want you to know that I long for you. My love will be
enough for two. I know I can make you happy. I will be the best
friend for you, lover and a wife if you only allow me. 
I am so much scared that you will not allow me to love you.
But you should know this feeling will always be in me as you
have captured the biggest part of my heart. And this will last
forever, I know. I have never felt this before especially to the 
person I have never seen in real life. And I will be happy only
if you say that you feel just a little of what I do for me.
Please, take your time and write me. I will be counting minutes
till the time I hear from you. 
Miss you badly.

Email #7: First request for $$'s

Hello my dearest one!!!
How are you today? As for me I am not really in the mood.
I have a feeling that I did something wrong.
I have never thought this could happen to me. That I could
fell in love with the person I have never seen in my life. 
I want to less the distance between
us so much, to take your hand, to look into your eyes and
to see that you understand my naive soul. I know I shouldn't
be so open. I have to be strong and keep everything inside. 
I am too emotional but I don't want you to be scared and run
away. If I could be closer to you and if I could show you my
feelings. I want you so much to see me, to feel my touch.
I would kiss your eyes and say how I love you. 
Again I am acting like a silly little girl. I am mad at myself.
But at the same time I can't stop. I want you to know my
feelings. I even thought of coming to you. And I have even
went the tourist agency to check about the visas. And 
now I know that the best way for me to come to you is to
get a tourist visa. It will not take much time.
And they told me at the tourist agency that I have a very
good chance to get it. Do you remember I told you once that 
I had been to Canada. And it is a very good reason for
giving me a visa. I've checked that a visa will cost $267.
You know with my salary I just can't afford it. And I will
need your help. It's up to you, of course. But I really hope 
you will be able to help me with getting visa.
Please, think about it and let me know. Do you want me to
come to you?
Do you want to meet with me at last? I want it very much.
Hope you too.
I will give you the information for the case you decide to do it. 
The best way to send money is to do it via Western Union
or MoneyGram. It is an easy and quick way to get it.
It is necessary to know the full name of receiver.
My full name is Alla Fedotova. And after sending money, 
the one who is getting money should know an MTCN
( Money Transfer Control Number ).
And the sum of money that was sent.
Also you can send from money from there with a plastic card!!!
(please visit and for more information)
Well, I hope that you will think on this information. 
You have lots of food for thought.
Please, write me as soon as possible. I am waiting for
your reply.
Love you.

P.S. You can send money to any Western Union of St.-Petersburg.
I work in this city, and without problems I can receive you read this letter???

Email #8: 2nd money reqest

I understand everything quite well. But you should
understand me also.
I have to pay for visa in some days(During 7 days).
If I don't pay in time, they will just refuse me with it.
There are many people who want to get visa and to leave Russia. 
So they don't pay much attention to you in the Embassy.
You just need to do all the paper-work and to pay money, only
after that they will talk to you.
You should understand what to receive in your country the visa 
very difficultly!!! But now I can make all this very quickly and
without problems, there is only one problem, these are money!!
It is a shame to me to ask it you, and I never anybody did not
ask money. It is very a shame to me. But desire to see you very 
big and consequently I ask your help.
So, dear, please, try to do what you can and as soon as possible. Y
ou are my only hope.
But of course, I will understand everything...
I love you and wait for your soon reply. 

Email #9: Final plea

I offer to you that we should worry about our future meeting
very soon, because I think we will be more sure if I begin the process
of getting visa right now. This proses can take about 1 week or
more... My darling, I will stay for three months, so we can have lot of time to 
be together...
I don't know but maybe if we decide to be together, I can stay forever with you,
my dear!!!
What do you think about???
I want to be with you....
You are the man who was made specially for are very strong man and I 
like you a lot!!!!!!

Letter 5

Hello my love!!! How are you today? Sorry for not writing sooner, but there was some dificulties with internet connection, 
but now all is ok.
I am so happy to read your emails. 
I think i love you and you are very handsome man and i always 
dream about you. I told all about our relationships to my friends
and they are very happy to see how i becoming more happy then was before you.
I cant wait our meeting and think about you every day. What about you ??? 
You are the man i am looking for.
I was in travel agency today as i told you before, to find out how i can get to fly to you. And be with you . This travel
agency is situated in Tula this is not far away from Ivanovo. 
I hope we can make it, and i gave your email adress to travel agent and he promised me to send you all information about my 
trip. Its very good agency and its very 
popular here, and the main thing, its the cheapest.
I dont know what else i can tell you but my mind full of words of love 
and nothing else. Every day i hope that all its real and you are not just my imagination.
My friends say you hello. I have some present for you from them.
But there is one thing, if we want to celebrate my birthday in your place, you should
tell me will you help me or not, cause now they can offer us a good deal about tickets 
and if we meet later it will cost much more for us because it will be more difficult 
to get visa which is valid during 1 month, this is some kind of tourist visa, i dont know exactly. 
Think about it cause its very good chance to be tpgether.
Unfortunatly, i cant afford to pay ,cause i earn only 400 USD here. It will be so nice if you help with the funds, but you 
shouldnt worry i will
give it back to you all money when we meet, cause i will work in some hospital or as fitness trainer and can earn some money 
for you. 

I am sorry to tell that but iam realy want to be with you. I dont know what else i can tell, you know everithing about me. Of course if i could i will ask all my friends to lend me some funds but i am not sure i can get enough , please understand it, soory if it make you sad.
I hope you will understand me in good way. I can speak with you all day and night but its better to speak face to face to know each other much better. Dont you think so.???
If you want i can fly to you only for a week and we will see how things goes on or i can stay with you, if you love me, all in your hands....

Ok now i give you a lot of kisses from me, and i gave you my heart, and i belive that my dreams will come true. And i will be with you soon!!!!

I like you so much. Want to touch you and kiss you.!!! bye for now.

Thank you for the information. I am willing to pay for the travel and associated expenses for Evgeniya.

I sent to travel agency

Dear Sir,

I am still not comfortable in sending a Western Union form of payment to your companies owner as I have no way of knowing or validating that your company is a legal entity. Pardon my skepticism but I still require some form of assurance that I am dealing with an actual legitimate business. Unless you can provide proof I will need to make other arrangements for travel that is safer. I am a frequent flyer on Continental Airlines and have over 300,000 points on their mileage program. 

Can this payment be made through Visa or Mastercard?

Thank you in advance for you assistance!

All we can recommend you is to use your credit card on WU website and send money online. Maybe this is can help. If not we dont have any variants at this time.

NATALIA SHULEPOVA ( Yoshkar-Ola, Russia)

I am a 44 years old divorced father of a 5 years old girl. I thought that using the Internet could help me to find the love of my life, but it was a bad experience. Most of these scammers make their living using pictures of young beautiful women to scam Americans. I contacted Natalia Shulepova on February 2006 through Yahoo personal. Everything looked so real. She looked very pretty in all the pictures that she emailed me. We chat and emailed each other for several months. She started to get impatient because she wanted me to send her money soon to buy a ticket, so she could come to live with me in USA. I made the mistake of sending her US$1500 by western union to buy her ticket. She said that she got the money, booked the ticket to come to USA in a week. After a week, I received a phone call from her, for the first time, saying that she was at the airport and needed US$2700 more from me to show in customs in Russia that she had some money to travel to USA. Then, I thought that it was very strange because all the letters that I received from her were very hard to understand because of her poor English, but the person who spoke to me on the phone was very fluent. Of course, I did not send her any more money. Since then, I didn't heard from her again.

Researching on the web, I found
website and similar letters and stories from other guys but with different pictures and names of the girls.

I used Google and Yahoo search engines typing the name "Natalia Shulepova" and I got few other websites with her name already reported as a scammer. This is one of

I am reporting this because I don't want these people to continue taking advantage of others.

This is Natalia last email:

Hello lovely Raul, it is a pity to me, that I
could not take off today 
to you as me have not started up in the plane. As I
already spoke you, 
when I passed the CUSTOMS CONTROL to me have told,
that without money 
of me will not pass. I at once have not understood,
about what to me 
spoke. Then all have precisely explained to me. Me
have asked, whether I 
know about a living wage? I have told, that I know.
Then they to me have 
told, that that I could live at you all 3 months I
should present $2700

months in the USA. I 
spoke them that I shall live at you. But they did not
want even to

Moscow. It is 
necessary for me to go home, but I have no money to go
home. I should remain 
here. Now I have only a few money to go to the
Internet of Cafe. But

expensive. I shall go . 
and tomorrow I shall wait from you for the letter .
please, write to me . 
to me so poorly without you now .
I love you strongly .
Sincerely yours, Natalia


Lana, Milandriya (Inza, Russia) aka Marina Miheeva and Sinnndy

Hello...I'm a 34-year-old, single professional living in the United States. I have been a member of for the past three years as I search for the 'right one'. In the past few months I have received emails from several Russian women. They each follow the same basic format: 1) Their profiles state they live in the U.S. - It is not until contact is made that they correct themselves. At that point they claim they were mistaken in their profile or they weren't able to choose 'Russia' 2) Their profiles include at least one appealing, attractive photo to catch your attention 3) Profiles become 'inactive' soon after contact is made 4) Emails stress the importance of honesty, family, and finding the 'favorite' man or soulmate 5) Emails quickly become romantic as they profess their feelings of love and devotion 6) Accompanying pictures may become more revealing 7) Money is eventually requested to cover expenses for visa, travel, family emergency, etc. 

A woman calling herself Lana (also using the name Milandriya) sent me a wink in August, 2006. I reviewed her profile. She was attractive, she claimed to live in the United States, and her text gave no indication of being Russian (it must have been written by someome else or, more likely, copied and pasted from another person's profile). Thinking that she lived nearby I emailed her. 

Once the correspondence began she revealed that she in fact lived in Russia. Unfortunately, during our correspondence I did not obtain her last name. In any cane, she claims to live in Inza, Russia and uses the email address Since I have seen this scam before I quickly tested Lana by asking her direct questions. Not surprisingly she did not respond to them. The next letters simply contained more innane banter and more questions posed to me. I brought this to her attention, accused her of dishonesty and, after a brief message, the emails ceased. 

Since then I've done a text search on this site using quotes from Lana's emails. Sure enough it led to copies of the messages I was receiving. The names and pictures, of course, were different. The same emails were being used under the names Marina Miheeva and Sinnndy. I have included examples of the letters I received and have also attached photos. 

Be careful out there people...spread the word to friends and colleagues about these scams. And, most of all, don't send your hard-earned cash to these blood-sucking leeches!!!

Good luck...

Hi Austin! I am pleased to receive your reciprocal message. Austin
your mail means for me, that I too was interesting in me. Do you
really like me on picture? well.. in the next letter i shall send
you another my picture. And Austin i have questions and i would like 
to ask them in letters, I hope to get your answers OK? It is
important for me to know your opinion on some things. But first I
should be honest with you. Austin, unfortunately i live far from you.
Otherwise it was not necessary for us much e-mail, to learn each 
other. I live in Russia, in city Inza (Ulyanovsk area). But I think,
if we shall decide to meet, I hope, that it will not be a problem for
us. Because I travelled to other countries much. I was in such
countries of Europe, as Britain, Turkey, France. I traveled as the 
tourist. Therefore Austin, you should not have excitement be relative
that we not beside. I am woman, that if I shall like man for a meeting
i shall reach him. Besides in our days it is not a problem to travel.
I don't worry about it and I can do it, it is possible to have
relations with the person of other part of the world. It is very
interesting - other culture, thinking, traditions i like new places.
Probably you Austin can learn Russian woman. I hope you will not be 
frightened also we shall continue our acquaintance? I think you read
my profile and could see that I have serious intentions im looking for
serious relations.... I shall try to tell a little about my character. 
well.. I think im very romantic woman. I like to communicate with
people, it is pleasant to me i like good humour. Also i very much
estimate, honesty, loyalty, understanding, patience. I believe in
love, and I think it very valuable thing which needs to be protected. 
I adore, to hear compliments and is ready to listen indefinitely. For
me it is necessary, that around of me there was a cleanliness, I often
do cleaning. I love a cosiness in the house and I enjoy in the silent
evening of a house. Also i like to cook, various tasty things....
well also I am always ready to be the most patient. i think i good
woman :) Probably all women dream to find good man and dream about
beautiful romantic relations. But often such things come to the end 
very quickly. In relations should be not only romanticism but a
reality also. I have no intention to spend my time on such relations.
While I have not met such man in my life. But i hope to find such
person. I hope to make family. I think its main thing, not career or 
other success. Happy good family and love person are main. Tell me
please what you want in the life? What the woman you dream to meet in
the life? Excuse Austin, that i ask you to discuss such frank thing
with me whom you know couple of days. But it is interesting to me to 
know it about you. I shall wait yours e-mail. Yours Lana

August 31, 2006

Hi Austin. It is very pleasant for me to receive your letter. I am
glad, that you want to continue acquaintance to me. Every day we shall
learn more about each other and it's an interesting. I had usual day
but i have received your letter and now my mood became much better, it
is really pleasant for me that you write to me. Thank you for yours
some answers to my questions it helps me to learn more about you and
to understand you. I send you another my pictures. I hope you like me 
on photos. Austin tell me more about your family. Do you have many
relatives? How often do you visit each other how often do you gather?
I have very good family. In my family very much close relations. As i
already wrote i live with my mum and daddy. We live in a apartment, 
there are three rooms a kitchen a bathroom and a balcony. I have my
room. I have loved mum and loved daddy, i one child in family i always
wanted to have the younger brother or the sister that them to look
after. My parents very good, careful and kind people, they always 
understood me, and never brought me. They very much love me, and I
even more....... My mum's name is Victoria, she is very sensual and
kind woman. She is 46 years old, earlier she worked as the bookkeeper
but now she does not work. My daddy's name is Alexander. He is strict, 
but fair man. He is 48 years old. He works as the worker on railroad.
I love my family very much we frequently spend time together. In my
private life i have emptiness. I have been never married, my last
boyfriend was almost my age, we were with him together almost 2 years, 
but he appeared the rascal, he deceived me though pretended, that
everything is all right, that always with me is fair. I thought, that
he loves me, but there was, that he simply a fool (excuse for
expression), he frequently deceived me he was the liar, for him 
friends and were more important than a party. For him there was no
important we relations, and I with him have said goodbye and not how
many I do not regret about it, therefore, now I search for more
serious and sincere really " adult man for serious relations ". Among 
associates of me of people I cannot allocate anybody for serious
relations. In the beginning it seems, that you have met the good
suitable person, but then there is that it not so. Likely therefore I
also use the web service of date. Probably here I can find the person 
who will be to love me, appreciate and understand. It is not important
for me his financial situation and work he makes. i hope to find who
appreciate women and who can care of woman. I shall be ready to give
all myself and I think, that the main advantage of the woman is
fidelity and skill... well I shall be brief Austin, write to me about
your ideas of that. I wait your letter. Yours Lana

September 3, 2006

Hi dear!

time to send you this small message i want to say that i think of you
i always glad to your mails. And thank Austin, that you have written
to me some details about your life and family, I closely studied it. 
It has helped me more well to understand you and your life and you
become closer man. And daer as I already spoke you I had relations
with one man. I was completely have opened to this person, I tested to
him the big feelings. But as it has turned out, that this person 
simply played with my feelings, he deceived me. I for him was
indifferent. And I do not regret a little, that have left him. Now I
am more cautious in a choice my the partner on home life. My intention
to find good the man which will care of me to love me. The main thing 
that I shall find him and I believe in it. And in it there is no
difference where I would search for this person. But I know, that men
of your country possess all these qualities. They know as to create
good family. Therefore I to search for the man of your country. But 
also I well know the English language and it will help me in dialogue.
But I only do not understand, why in your country so it is a lot of
divorces? You can explain to me. I know about your life and culture a
little, but once I would like to study in this. And it is possible,
that I shall find such person who in it will help me also. Therefore I
have addressed to service of the help. Now I should go. I shall write
to you later. Yours Lana

should listen to me. I to not answer your question earlier as I have
no a lot of time to make it. It is difficult for me to write to you as
