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!

Steve (USA)

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.

Adriaan (South Africa)

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.

== MONEY REQUEST LETTER =============
Hello my dear Warren !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

With the big interest read your letter.
I have good news for you. I have went in Travels the Company which is
engaged in travels of people worldwide. There has informed me, that
this year it became much more difficult to get in America and to get
the visa, as the United States enter the strict control and schedule
of distribution of the documents. Embassy check and much to many
people it fails to receive such opportunity. But there is a chance to
make all documents and to issue it in the nearest terms. The urgent
registration will borrow hardly more than one weeks. But the small
extra charge in payment is required. And it needs my arrival in Moscow
for registration and signing of the appropriate orders in different
departments and American Embassy. The Travel Company incurs all
obligations on registration and registration of all necessary
documents for arrival.
My arrival to you needs the visa, the international passport and
medical insurance. After payment and registration of the documents I
can learn flight both date of a start and arrival of the plane to you.
It is necessary to send set of inquiries and confirmations. I have
learned about all information for my coming to you, my Warren! In travel
agency have said me that it will be better for us, if I will have the
visa of a tourist. This tourist visa B-2, the visitor visa will valid
during six months. On this type of visa I'll can travel till USA
without any restrictions. The price of this visa is 295 US dollars.
And the price of passport 47 of US dollars. Besides the process of the
registration of the visa and passports costs 60 US dollars. In general
it is necessary to pay 402 US dollars for registration and reception
of all necessary documents.
By the way I has taken an interest about other kinds of the visas too,
so me have said, that there is a set of kinds of the visas. For
example, visa of a bride. In travel agency have said me that this visa
costs more expensively and visa's registration costs a lot of money.
It's around 750 dollars US and the registration of the visa will it is
possible during seven months, it is very long and expensive! From it
because the tourist visa B-2 is the betterest variant than visa of
bride now for us, my Warren!
My darling, I want that we will be together and I do not want to lose
you. I even did not think, that it so is expensive. I thought how to
be. I have brought in all money, available at me, 2370 roubles in
translation on dollars it will be about 100 dollars. Of course, I
asked my parents and friends to help me with this charges on the
necessary documents for my coming, but my parents does not have such
money though they would like to help us. I will need to pass the
medical exams too. By the way in Travel Companies me informed that
will try to find the cheaper prices of the air ticket for the fling to you.
I love travel.
I did not tell about the girlfriends? At me not so that it is a lot of
them, but they in all understand me. When it is difficult for me they
support me. I can will share with them the impressions to tell him about the
secret dreams. My city is small, green, decent small town in which there are 
traditions, monuments and sculptures. But it dirty, since in it many the 
industrial enterprises,
factories. As you already know ,I the sensual, attractive, decent girl with 
sense of humour and gentle disposition. In leisure I like to go, go in 
theatres and cinema to attend exhibitions, art
galleries. From sports - I am fond of navigation. At leisure I like to read 
books which are interesting to me. I also embroider and well I am going, 
especially I like walks
on fresh air, rest far from dirty city air. The man which I would like to 
see near to myself should be with sense of

humour, tactful in dialogue with people, fairly clever and to not be trite. 
It seems to me that
except for external beauty of a body of the person, his internal beauty of 
his spiritual world is
important also. I not in perfection know English, however if you understand 
me, is capable to
dialogue. The marriage should be based on respect, mutual understanding, and 
like. I would like to learn about your interests, outlooks on life, and what 
you would like.
I wait for your answer.
Your princess Anna

Russian woman scammer

Evgenia Kornilova (Nizhni Novgorod, Russia)

I am 41 single, never married and I am self-employed white musician, no children.

Evgenia contacted me at, telling me she was a doctor earning $100 a month. It started in October, she sent me a few photos of her, including a message to me, I was certain then she was a real person. I brought up the subject of money in the first letter, she was furious and said she was not that kind of girl. When I became very interested in her, she then repeatedly asked for money for travel. Eventually she stopped and said she would save the money, but soon she wanted me to send a toy to her, and she became fixated on this toy I would send. She stopped writing for nearly two weeks, blaming me for this, she began asking for money again, this time to finance a property deal. She gave me details of where to send the money $2500, a considerable sum!!!

Here it is:---country: Russia
City: Yoshkar-Ola
Name and surname: Dinara Ahmetzyanova
postal code: 424038

She has now written again, complaining I have lied and not sent her the money.

I think she has profiles at and, under the name Evgenia Kornilova, the photos there seem similar to those she sent me. 

This is the main letter from Evgenia:-

Mariya Gorshounova (Sovetka, Russia)

This is a SCAMReport on Mariya Gorshounova from Sovetka, Russia.
I am Divorced 37 year old male. Self-employed from Columbia, South Carolina.

She originially contacted me from on October 16, 2006. She proceeded to fall in love with me over a slower two month period. After getting a notice that she could take vacation, she wanted to come to USA and meet me. After she went through a week process of paperwork and interviews she said she got her VISA and sent me a digital image of it. She then proceeded to tell me that the "fruits" of all her hard work was done and she had gotten the VISA and was working on the plane tickets. But she found out that they were more expensive than she thought. And after paying $500 for the VISA and putting down $849 for the plane tickets, she was short by $273 for the plane tickets and needed the money by December 1, 2006, or she would lose the tickets and the money she put down on them. 

Being in photography as a hobby, I had noticed several of her pictures had been "altered" using Adobe Photoshop...including the VISA. I searched for where I could go to check the authenticity of the VISA she sent me. I ended up calling the US STATE DEPT in Washington and they informed me that the "Control Number" on her VISA was an Invalid Forged number and they immediately asked if I had met this person on the Internet and if she was asking for money!!! I said yes and they said she is SCAMMING you! Before I found this info out, I had e-mailed "Mariya" and asked her about the "altered" pictures and VISA and why she had "made changes" to her photos and what was going on? Needless to say, she has not written me back and knows that I have figured out what she was doing to me... But the thing is this, I had been in a scam before where the girl did this scamming to ask for money in only a 3 week period and was very distant and not very personal to me in her e-mails. BUT THIS GIRL MARIYA!!!! She went through all the time and trouble to answer all my questions and to give me details and details about her life and our new life together and suck me in to a "fairy tale" unbelievable sincere honest and loving relationship over a 2 month period...she was GOOD!! She even had the right "flight plan" numbers that she sent me for her trip from Moscow to Columbia... with dates, times, flight numbers etc... she put in as much time and heart as a real person would!!! SHE IS VERY VERY DANGEROUS and GOOD at getting you in the HEART! She acted with such care and concern and passion like I have never seen before on Internet scams. For two months, I thought she was the REAL thing... But when that last e-mail came very apologetically and ashamedly asking for money via Western Union, my heart broke!! Then I knew it was over and a scam! I have attempted to report this scam to her domain "" but it is a Russian domain, so I don't know if they can read my English and understand what I am reporting.

Please get her name and pictures out there on the Black-List as soon as possible!!!

Mariya Gorshounova



Hi my new friend! My name is Mariya. I hope my letter will find you in good mood. I for the first time try such a way of dialogue, and I really don't know what to tell right now even though I understand that this first message have greater importance. But I have decided to write to you and maybe you will answer. I sincerely hope that you are looking for the same as I. Once upon a time, the loneliness has come into my home and since then does not want to let me off. The loneliness establishes own laws of life and life filles with sadness and disappointment. I freeze from loneliness. Every evening I look at a sundown and I try to absorb all warmth of day, up to last drop. I am looking for a partner in life to share simple pleasures and together take off from the soul the weariness and sadness given birth by loneliness. I am looking for a man to become friends first of all and to go together along the road of life, to have common joy, together enjoy autumn magnificence, together build the future. I do not know if it is really possible to find it in such a way. But I know that many people not been able to find happiness in the usual life, have found happiness in this way. I am happy where I now, and my life is a good life, but happiness has no sense if you cannot share it with person dear to you. I could not find here a man who will make me blossom like flower. That is why I took this courageous for me step. As speak, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. To tell about itself briefly is impossibly, therefore I will not try to do it now. I will wait for your letter and if you are really serious in your search, maybe we will find interest in each other. Neither of us knows to where this path will lead but I am willing to walk it and see where it takes us. I tried to put my picture in my profile, but I understand nothing in computers and probably I did something wrong. But I will send my picture through e-mail if you will answer me. 
My personal mail address: [ doc (at) smallclinic com ] 
Answer my note as soon as you can! 


Hi Darius!
First of all I want to apologize for my delay with my answer. Please do
not be angry with me. Unfortunately I had no opportunity to write to 
sooner. I hope you remember me? I have written to you the short letter 
you have answered me. I wanted to answer at once to not keep you 
for my answer, but I got access to a computer only now. Please, forgive
me. I am very glad that you have answered to my letter. Thank you that 
have found time for answer.
Probably first of all I should write the most important thing. I hope 
I think you are not very much afflicted that I live not in your country
(I think you already know about it). But I very much hope that it does 
frighten you, because I am the same lady like many other ladies living 
the different countries. I am the same person with heart and soul. I 
much am afraid that my nationality and my residence will disappoint you
and you will not write to me more, but at the same time I sincerely 
that nationality and distinction of cultures for you is not the most
important things in a lady. And if your interest is not limited by
distance or borders, I really will be very glad. My country is Russia.
Moscow is the capital of Russia. Now I live in village of Sovetka.
It's a small settlement, where live a few hundreds inhabitants. 
if you want to have the best understanding about where I live, I should
tell you that my village is located close to the big city - Taganrog.
It is a city located in Rostov Area - in a southern part of the 
Russia,near to such known cities as Novocherkassk, Rostov on Don.
In the childhood I dreamed to be a translator of the English language.
I dreamed to work with our President to know all state and 
secrets! (smile). But the destiny has disposed differently.
I think our president doesn't need my services now because I am 
and I think that our president would not allow me to examine him 
I began to get education in the comprehensive school with a medical 
After ending school I entered the Medical University.Now I work in a 
I work as an gynecologist. I already said that my name is Mariya.
Darius, I promised to share with you my picture,
I fulfils my promise with worry and with pleasure. In addition to
a picture I want to tell that color of my hair is dark-brown, though 
I like to change color of hair. I hope you are not disappointed very 
that I am a dark-brown, because I know that all men love more blondes? 
It is
a question!!! (smile). My height is 5 feet 6 inches. My weight is 115 
And of course you should know that I am 29 years old. My birthday
is 01 May 1977. I understand that all people have various tastes and
interests, but I sincerely hope that my picture and my appearance will 
pleasant for you. But if my appearance doesn't conform to your tastes 
interests, I will understand you, of course. I the optimist at heart 
it's often help me in my life. I already adult woman; and I look at the
life with a philosophical shade. But as though I did not try to inspire
myself that I absolutely happy woman, I can't do it. I have fine lady
friend, I have job and my apartment. But there are things without which
people cannot be happy. And for me it's not material things. I have
written to you the first and it means that I am ready to share with you 
thoughts. I am very glad and grateful to you for that that you have
answered me. Anyhow, I hope that you, just as I, have interest in our
dialogue, and I will wait your answer. In the end of my letter I want 
ask you the most banal questions: what music you like, what movies you
prefer. These questions are really interesting for me because I like
American movies and American music very much. I with pleasure will tell 
you about it in my next letter if you really want to learn more about 
Do you like your job, Darius? Had you ever had experience in
correspondence with a friend from other country? Maybe you are more
skilled in this than I am? If you do not want to answer these 
please do not answer. It is simply my female curiosity. I will be
very grateful to you also if you will send me your pictures. I will be
happy to have your pictures in the computer. With the best regards.


Hi Greg!
How your day? I hope you are glad to receive my letter because when 
I have received your letter I really was glad. Many thanks. At once I 
to tell to you about my opportunities to write letters to you. I write
letters on my job because I have no the personal computer. The computer 
in an accounting department. Lady who works with a computer will allow 
to use a computer in my interests sometimes. It depends not from me,
unfortunately. I work from Monday till Friday. It is Russian standard.
Therefore I will not be able to write you and to receive your letters
Saturday and on Sunday. But sometimes I work Saturday and even Sunday. 
In fact any pain hasn't schedules(smile). Therefore, maybe I will be 
to write letters in the Saturday or Sunday. I will hope to receive
your picture soon. I will be very grateful to you! I have no any
brothers or sisters. What do you want to know about my job? Do you
remember that I am gynecologist? If I will say about my job in detail,
I think you will stop to write to me (smile).
Well, I will tell you more about my interests. I like various
types of music. I like to listen to classical music. I like Dire 
But my favorite is Pink Floyd. They are not similar to anybody. It is a
great band. I like Robbie Williams, Madonna and many others. In America
there are a lot of great musicians. I like Russian musicians but likely
you do not know them. OK, movie! I like works of such Russian directors 
Konchalovsky, Mikhalkov. My favorite movies are "The Barber of Siberia"
and "Burnt by the Sun". It's masterpieces of the Russian cinema. The
American movie in Russia is considered like the greatest. I like 
movies very much. Brave Heart, the Sixth Sense, Rainman, One Flew Over 
Cuckoo's Nest, the Godfather, Groundhog Day, the Scent of a Woman,
Dragonfly. My favorite actors - Bruce Willis, Al Pacino, Kevin Costner,
Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Tom Hanks, Kevin Spacey. My hobby, if 
possible to tell so - the English language. I have loved English long 
when I studied at school. In Russia the program of training necessarily
includes foreign language, as a rule - English, German or French. I 
entered in group of the English language and I am happy that I made it. 
like your language very much. After school, I continued studying 
at the university. I like this language. I have been studying your
language for 18 years. Of course I speak English! I have been studying
English for 18 years! I only hope that you would love my Russian 
that I have without any doubts. I want to know this language perfectly.
I know that now I admit mistakes, but I hope you won't angry. But my 
predilection that will be with me during all my life is the knitting! 
mom has taught me to knit in the childhood, and now I knit sweaters,
jackets and waistcoats for myself and for my friends. I like to knit 
much, and I like woolen clothes very much. Basically all warm sweaters
that I have, I have made by my own hands. I do not know if in your 
the knitting is popular, but here it is very popular. What else to tell
about me? I have no children and I was never married, though
of course I was in relationship and even thought that it will lead me 
the happy future. But now I haven't anything except of bad and painful
memoirs. Greg, how you would describe your character? I never tried 
to describe features of my character to somebody. I live with a smile 
on my
face and with hope in my heart. I think I can consider myself an 
And maybe it has helped me to dare to write you. I saw a great deal in 
my life,
and for 29 years I have passed through a lot of vital tests. And I know 
I do not need many things to be happy. All I need is a man, friend, 
love. And my life has led me to the fact that now I seeks it in such 
And I do not think it is bad. How do you think? I live honestly, and it
brings pleasure to me. I know that happiness not requires many things. 
the main thing that does not suffice me now is love. People without 
cannot be happy. And I speak not only about love between a man and a 
but also about love to a family for example. I have no family anymore 
it really oppresses me. I always recollect my family. Greg, you meet 
family often? I very much want to return that time when I had family.
Are you looking for the soul mate or just a friend? What are you 
looking for
in a soulmate, Greg, if you are looking for? I hope to receive your
letter soon. Sincerely and with the best regards.


Hi Greg! Today definitely good day - day of dialogue with my
friend Greg! (Smile). How it is wonderful to receive something that
you really wait. And in a case with me it of course your letter! Thank 
Today was a difficult day, and dialogue with you removes my physical
weariness. The quantity of patients has considerably increased for some
last years. Here many people lives in the remote areas, impassable
districts. They lives even without an electricity in absolutely 
conditions for a life. And it certainly becomes the reason of a plenty 
diseases. The sad fact. Sometimes I want our president Putin to live 
instead of the Kremlin, simply to understand what life is. Maybe in 
case all wars would end much faster? Forgive me that I tell you about 
problems, simply I write all what in my head. If you do not like to 
about it - simply tell me. Thank you for your pictures. It is a fine
pictures. You are a strong and handsome man. I very much like this
pictures. It is wonderful, when a man combines force and charm. It
happens so seldom. Forgive me for my frank words. But I always speak
what I think. I think there is nothing bad in it. You have pleasant
appearance and it is wonderful. Pictures of your mom have amazed me!
She is a magnificent woman - a true example of eternal female beauty
and charm. She looks superb, has very beautiful sincere smile and
beautiful kind eyes. I am sure that she is the delightful woman.
You have asked about weather. Russia is very extended country and
divided onto a lot of various synoptic regions. For example the place 
I lived before located in conditions of very cold and long winter. Here
winter long but not the coldest in Russia. In the winter we have 
up to 15 degrees Celsius below zero (I think it is 5 degrees 
Summer here very warm, up to 30 degrees Celsius (85-90 Fahrenheit).
By the way, you have asked me about knitting. I make the sweater i are 
By the way Greg I have asked you about your family in my last letter
because it really interestingly for me, as all my family has passed 
My parents were military, mom was the military doctor, father was the
officer and we hadn't constant house because they very often got the
notice about new place of service, in places with the military 
Therefore my childhood was not very cheerful. We lived in temporary
habitation outside of zone of conflict, therefore sometimes I did not 
my parents some weeks, and I was at home absolutely alone, being an
eight-year girl. Therefore since the early childhood I am able to cook,
sew, knit and do any heavy physical work. Now I absolutely agree that 
correctly said that:"Thing that does not kill us makes us stronger".
Don't you agree Greg? When father got new place of service near to
Kazakhstan, I have gone to study in the good medical university in 
I lived in student's hotel on distance of 600 kilometers from my 
But we had meeting some times in the year. Later my parents got new 
of service and have left to live in the Sovetka . And I saw my
parents only once in one year. At university for the first time in my 
I have found a true friend (it is Svetlana) who is my best and reliable
friend till now. We have together passed through a hard time when have
been compelled to study and work in the evening and at night,- just to
support itself. After ending of university I was to get direction for
intern in Tomsk area, but I have received the letter from mom where she
informed that daddy has been killed in military collision. There is
nothing worse than to find out about death of the parent from the 
After that I began to live with mom because I was afraid to leave her 
at such difficult period. One and a half year ago my mom has passed 
I will not describe all pain and suffering which I had at that time.
Simply I want to tell that all ups and downs, all pleasures and
misfortunes that were in my life have led me to who I am now. The 
was not tender with me, but I am grateful to my destiny for my parents, 
am grateful to my destiny for my friend Svetlana, because it really a 
gift of
destiny. And I hope Greg you are not angry with me that I talk to you
about it? It is my life and it is a part of me. And how you would learn 
more if I would not tell you it, really? And I as well would be glad to
learn more about you. Your life is very interesting to me. Are you
grateful to destiny for anything in your life Greg? How often you
become tired on your work? Do you like the nature, rivers and lakes, 
woods and
mountains? Are you religious person Greg? I will wait for your letter
so please write me soon! Sincerely and with the best regards.
Your friend (I hope) Mariya.


Hi, Greg!
Unfortunately I had no opportunity to write to you earlier.
Please forgive me for a delay. I hope you are not offended on me.
But better later than never.
Happy birthday to you!!!
Happy birthday to you!!!
Happy birthday dear Greg!!!
Happy birthday to you!!!
In Russia usually speak the wishes for hero of the day. I want all
your dreams to come true. I wish that any troubles and misfortunes
have forgotten road to your house. I wish for you only the enjoyment,
only pleasure, only Love. Today I had so much work that I was afraid
that I wouldn't have time to get your letter. And I have to say that
it is distressed me. But now I have found free time and very glad.
Thank you for your kind letter. My last letter was sad. That's why
today I will try not to write about sad things. How there were your
day? Now I am smiling and have a good mood, because today we found out
that in two days into Taganrog will be coming big exhibition of rare
breeds of cats and dogs. It is great news because at this exhibition
there will be the best representatives of rare breeds, collected from
all of Russia. Everybody wants to visit this exhibition because it
will last only for several days. I like animals very much. Can you
imagine that I never was in a zoo? It is my dream. But the last summer
I visited an exhibition of fishes. This exhibition is in Taganrog and
there many various fishes. All fishes such beautiful. Have you ever
been in zoo? We have here several small menageries, but I dream to see
giraffes and rhinoceroses, hippopotamuses and bears. I never saw
tigers and elephants in real life. Have you ever seen a tiger or a
bear? The biggest animal I saw in my life is a horse. I like horses
very much and think that these are the most beautiful animals in the
planet. As matter of fact I have always dreamt to have some pets.
Unfortunately a horse hardly would be placed in my apartment (smile).
I dreamt to have cat or dog. But when I think that a little puppy will
wait for me home, alone, I feel pity. That's why I don't have pets.
What else to tell about myself? I always very much get tired on work. 
though my work is not heavy physical work but like any doctor, I am in
constant concentration and an internal moral strenuousness, because the
health of people depends on my attention. I am always waiting weekends
with impatience. Weekends are the only one possibility for me to get a
rest and to get new forces. Weekends I spend variously. Sometimes I 
simply to rest in my apartment. I live alone in my apartment. I have 
one-room apartment with a toilet and kitchen. I like my apartment - 
and cozy. On weekends I always clean apartment properly. I like purity.
And though I always try to keep clean my apartment, all the same, 
in the weekends I find what work to make in an apartment. But when I 
really to relax I listen to music or read books. I like to read books
especially historical novels about ancient Russia or other countries. I
like to spend time with my female friends. I have two best lady 
When we meet, the air is filling with laughter. We like to walk and to
talk; we go to cinema and walk in the park. If you want I can tell you
about my friends. I like very much to spend time in nature in the open
air. I like the sea. I live not very far away from the sea, but should
tell that I have been there very seldom. I like woods, mountains, lakes
and the rivers more. Camping in Russia is very popular. I adore to go 
the forest and to live in a tent though now I have such opportunity
seldom. I like to look at night illumination and cars headlights. I 
very much to look at the stars. In August our sky abound with stars. It 
incredible beautifully. I like to cook on the fire. There is nothing 
wonderful than when the fragrances of forest, mountain rivers and smoke
mix together in the air. I am romantic undoubtedly. I really like to 
I know that I do it well, because I started cooking from childhood. My
mother taught me many things including cooking. She said: "Lady who can
cook well doesn't have disadvantages and demerits, because tasty food 
is a
way to the man's heart (smile). May be she was right. We have In Russia
many national dishes, such as an okroshka, uha, borsch, golubtsy. I am 
sure if you know such dishes. These are Russian national dishes. Also I
like dishes of Caucasian Georgia. What dishes do you prefer Greg?
Looking back at your life would you like to change something? I have to
finish. I hope my letter was not stodgy and uninteresting. I will wait 
your letter with impatience. I wish you peace and kindness.


Hi, my dear friend Greg! I hope you not mind that I say so. 
Thank you for your letter. Day by day I feel more need in getting 
letter. My mood has become better again when I have got your letter. I
should say that when I have good mood I hear gratitude from my patients
much more often (smile). Therefore, now the health of a Russian women
depend on your letters (smile again).
Thank you for new picture. I already spoke, that you are a handsome
man. Your new picture confirms my words. You really very charming and
attractive a man and to look at you is very pleasantly. I never had a
friend from other country. It is my first experience of dialogue in a
similar way, and at present I am very happy. You are a first and only
one man with whom I have entered correspondence. You an only one man
who know my address and therefore only one man have written me - it's
you. I cannot and I do not understand how is possibly to open soul to
several people simultaneously. I can open my soul only to a man with
whom I feel conveniently to whom I trust. I have opened soul to you.
For me it not game and not a joke. I have no desire and time for
games. But I have time and desire to write to one man in your country.
It is you. You asked me about a possible meeting. I with pleasure will
answer - Of Course! I would not start such a relations if I were not
sure in it. If my heart will prompt me that I should go in your
country, I necessarily will go. Of course all is possible. And if I
will feel that time to meet have come, I will make all to organize
this meeting. To answer your serious question I want to tell that I 
think any
relations should have as the reliable foundation - friendship, sincere 
true. I am happy to have you as a good friend and if it will lead to
something more close, I will be happy. If I write to you it means that 
admit a thought that we can become close friends, and of course I admit 
thought about possible future together! From the very beginning I have
told that I write not for fun. For me it is a serious step. Now we go 
on a
way of learning each other and I think it is correct way. I feel that 
become good friends, and it can serve as a springboard for something
greater. I do not know what waits for us in the future. But anyhow, you
bring to me positive emotions and make me smile. It means that you 
have found a place in my heart. Where it will lead me I do not know.
To my regret I could not visit an exhibition. Last days was a
lot of work and I could not go to Taganrog. But it not death (smile).
By the way, when I came to work today, my mood was bad, because my 
Svetlana fell ill and now she is in the hospital. The saddest thing is 
she has birthday today. She is 30 years old today. Unfortunately she 
spend her birthday in the hospital. But I have already talked with a
doctor and I will be allowed to spend evening in her chamber. In the
evening I will bake a cake, I will buy balloons and go to the hospital. 
hope very much that she will have good mood on her birthday. She is my
best friend. By the way, she works with me in the clinic.
Svetlana the doctor the otolaryngologist in our clinic. As a matter of
fact I have only two real friends - Svetlana and Irina. Svetlana is a 
lady who
is in the hospital. Irina is our friend already for several years. 
and I are like sisters. We like to take a walk. Usually we walk in the
park. But also we like to spend time in Svetlana vegetable garden. She 
in an old wooden house. I don't know if you have seen such houses. It 
the houses which were built before the Second World War, in the 
years. These are very old houses which don't have bath and running 
So people have to take water outside in the well. In modern world such
conditions seem very terrible, but this is really so. We like to spend
time in Svetlana vegetable garden. There she grows the potato, tomatoes 
cucumbers not to buy them in the market. Every winter Svetlana, Irina 
and I
together build a big Snowman in her vegetable garden, using a big snow
spheres. We put carrot instead of nose, and potatoes instead of eyes. 
is very funny. All neighbor's children came to see it. By the way, if 
want to fool about, we put carrots not only instead of a nose but also
below..... (hint and smile) First time we made such Snowman 10 years 
Since that time we do it every year. It is a tradition for us. We 
it with water to cover with ice. So it could stand for the whole 
I like Sovetka. Almost all people in our village know each other.
We have little buildings - maximum 2 floors. Svetlana says that she 
wants to
live in a big city. I don't know where is better. Big city is a big
traffic, fast rhythm of life, garlands of fires, lightning's of shop
windows, high buildings, fountains, cinemas, parks, attractions, 
It is wonderful, of course I like it. But our village is a fresh air, a
lot of trees and birds, silent and comfortable, cozy, quiet place, no
hubris and vanity inherent for big cities. We have a lot of small and
large lakes and rivers. The places are very beautiful. If there was no
criminality, it would be paradise. But alas, the criminal in small 
as well as in the big cities is an integral part our life. 
the crime in Russia is on a very high level. But I don't want to tell
about sad things. Several times, Svetlana, Irina and I went to the 
of bard song. This is a place on the coast of the river where a lot of
people come from all country. At night the coast is covered with 
fires lights. The scene is a huge raft having the form of a guitar and
established right on water and everybody who wants to sing together 
famous bard singers, goes on this raft and starts to sing. And all
thousands people become silent and listen to this singer even if he is
absolutely unknown. It is the unique festival. I have to finish my 
I don't want but I have to do it. Today when I will come to Svetlana we 
talk about you. She likes to ask about you and I like to tell her. I
wanted to ask you what makes you happy Greg? What was the best gift
from a woman you got? Sincerely your, and with best wishes.

P.S. I have put a picture of a Snowman, but only the top part.
I think you can understand, that other part indecent. Smile. 


Hi Greg!
Thanks for your anxiety about Svetlana. She has female disease. It is
not dangerous, but demanded to place her in hospital to take small 
Now doctors have found out everything and probably tomorrow or the day
after tomorrow she will already leave hospital, but will be compelled 
spend still some days home to provide a rest.
otolaryngologist it is the doctor an ear, a throat and a nose.
At once I want to tell that Svetlana sends you her greetings. I was in
hospital and we have spent her birthday very well. I wanted to bake a
small cake, but it has turned out on the contrary. The cake was huge. 
weighed two kg. When I have brought it to hospital, we have divided 
into set of pieces; and all doctors and some patients that were in this
small branch are drank tea and ate a pie together with us and everyone 
glad and happy. I have brought a lot of balloons. She was very glad and
grateful to me. The day is wonderful today and the weather is good. The
sun is shining all the day. To add to all this I have got your letter 
my happiness doesn't have limits. So what about your weather? May be 
after work I will take a walk. I like to walk along the street and to
breathe the fresh air, especially when the weather is warm, even in the
winter. As a matter of fact I don't want to go home. At home is very
boringly and lonesomely. Sometimes I don't notice it, but sometimes 
I come home with good mood, I want to talk very much, to share thoughts 
anybody, to have fun. But my apartment is empty and I have to be in 
loneliness. And my good mood disappears. I simply sit down into the 
and look at the window. And when the silence deafens me, when I hear 
of my eyelashes, at that moment the hoop of loneliness compresses my 
I can listen to music or read a book. I can go to my friends. But in 
moment I understand that I just deceive myself. In fact I want a 
person to be near me, with whom I could spend evenings, to meet 
to talk about yesterday and to dream about tomorrow day. I want to walk
and to feel a strong man arm holds me. I don't want to cook meals only
for myself. I want somebody to appreciate it. But I think enough about 
Thank you for your fine answers to my questions. Your thoughts are very
deep and are filled with man's wisdom. I like what you have written 
the best gift from a woman. You are very sensual man. I see that you 
considered my questions seriously and your answers are very clever. 
In Russia there are very popular songs -songs of bards. I do not know
if there is in your country such concept. They are musicians who sing 
with the purpose of commercial success. They write and sing songs for
itself and for friends, but they are known in all Russia. They do not 
paid concerts. They sing about Russia, about a forest and steppes, 
the sky, about love and treachery. These songs with the special shade
which carries the pride of Russia and love to boundless elbowroom of 
beautiful land. The main thing in these songs - the text, deprived of
commonness. It is very beautiful songs. I very much like to sing their 
I can give you my address, but you should not send anything with the
exception of letters. Please do not send any parcels. Our Territory - 
center of terrorism where concentrated a lot of terrorists from 
Caucasus and Chechen Republic, and their supporters, and getting of 
from other country is unsafely for Russian people living in Rostov area 
because some supporters of terrorists can cause me physical
harm if find out about sending from America. Russian custom house 
everything, and customs officers decide what to skip and what to
confiscate or detain. If customs officer will sold or simply given 
your sending 
to any interested person, or simply would open it ostensibly for 
assignment of contents and simply would report to bad people my 
My life will undergo danger. It is unsafe for me. For this reason I 
ask you to send 
only letters. If you want to send me letter, your package should have 
the minimal 
sizes and do not draw attention of custom house. Promise?
Hi Greg, again. I began writing the letter in the morning. Now
already 5 p.m. Can you imagine? Today was heavy working day. My working
day comes to an end soon. But, one employee has brought here her small 
and she has asked me to look after him because she should leave 
for some hours. The boy knows me very well. He already some times 
with me and spent time. As our clinic works till 22.00, we can be here
up to the end of work day. His mom works in our clinic only a few 
months and
she has no friends or relatives here. That's why I already some times 
her. Her son is amusing boy. He told to me that tomorrow he with mom 
go to dentist to treat his ill tooth. I asked him: What do you dream 
He answered that he dreams to become a grownup because grownups don't 
problems with teeth. It was so funny. I often recollect childhood.
I always dreamed to become a grown up as soon as possible. As every 
I completely believed that grownups don't have problems at all. I 
in the childhood and I dream now. Of course, the world of dreams is an
illusive world. We live in a real life, so we should not sink into the
world of dreams and phantasies for a long time. When a dream becomes
obsession, it can bring only pain and disappointment. Our dreams
come true not always. It happens that you use all energy, all 
to make dream come true. But irrespective of how strenuously you try, 
everything in this life depend on us. When the dream for a long time 
not come true, dream ceases to be the star, that was for you a 
in the ocean of the life. But anyway, I think that it is impossible to 
without dreams and hopes. When there is a dream, the life is filled 
sense. Our dreams force us to think, analyze, choose and come to a
conclusion. The Faith and Hope are eternal satellites of our lifes. And
regardless of what waits you at the end, we remember joy of the 
better, than disappointment and pain of the defeats. Don't you agree?
I'm surprised that I write all this to you. I have never had a man, 
with whom
I felt conveniently in sharing my thoughts. But now I have found you, 
I am very glad. Forgive me for my frankness. If I said something
superfluous forgive me please. Can I ask some small questions? Do you 
to sleep, or get up early in the morning? Do you like to kiss? (smile)
Are you a good kisser? (smile) Do you like when your friends come to 
your home
or you prefer to go to friends. I adore when Svetlana or Irina come to 
apartment. What clothes do you like to see in a lady? I will wait for 
letter with impatience.
Mariya Gorshounova.


Hi, Greg.
I am very glad that you have written me. Thank you very much. You 
imagine how much I wait for messages from you! Your letters became a 
of my days! Now in my thoughts always only one question - "When I will 
an opportunity to read your letter and to write my?"... And when I hear 
favorite phrase: "Mariya, you can jump, you has received the letter!"
(A lady who works with a computer says exactly this phrase) I really 
joyful very much and start to smile involuntarily. Therefore thank 
Today is a good day and to clinic I have come already with good mood.
Today at night there was a little rain. In the morning I have come out
to the street to jog and I have seen that all footpaths and roads
completely are filled with water . But I like such a weather. I like 
weather. Many people do not notice beauty that surrounded them. In my 
such a weather wakens the big energy and fine mood. I like all seasons. 
I like autumn. Yellow leaves, gold trees. It is so wonderful to walk in 
park and to listen to how leaves rustle under feet; to see the clouds 
float in the sky, to see birds departing to the warm lands. And at 
the sky begins to cry. The rain knocks on windows and roofs. A 
illuminates for shares of second the empty streets. It is wonderful. 
it would be wonderful in such a weather to appear with beloved in a 
room with a warm fireplace; weak light and singing of a cricket. How 
think Greg? What can be finer than romantic evening in rainy day? I at
all do not know what season I like more. Russian winter is delightful. 
all world around is white. And falls of snow bewitches, especially in 
evening. When you see flows of light from a window, and on a background 
black sky small snowflakes are similar to stars. And if for a long time
you look at the sky, then it seems that you are flying through these
wonderful snowflakes towards something unknown. I like spring. The 
as though is born again. Air is filled with freshness. All troubles and
failures thaws together with snow. The sounds of the baby birds 
for the first time. Summer is a fine mood, the desire to learn the 
to have a rest and enjoy life. I feel that I rambling on.
Thank you for your fine words. Thanks for your sincere and gentle
words. Nobody spoke with me so gently, cautiously and sincerely
before! Your thoughts and feelings are so beautiful and romantic. And
I see me in your thoughts and it force me to feel that I especial
lady. Your letters and your thoughts bring pleasure at my day and give
calm to my soul. I think of you and I feel warmth in my heart. Thank
you for new pictures. I really want to tell you what I feel. I get a
great pleasure when you write to me. Your letters and your thoughts
bring pleasure at my day and give calm to my soul. I think of you and
I feel warmth in heart. You have such kind heart. Something inside me
prompted me that you very sincere and true a man. It so is important
for me. I always think about you and it is pleasant to me. I do not
know where I go. But I am not afraid of it. Nobody knows what waits
for us in the future, in one hour, or tomorrow, or in 20 years. I
simply go there where directs me my heart. I’m listening what my heart
says to me. When will come time to do the choice, to choose road, my
heart again will tell me what I have to do now. So was always in my
life. And now my heart is overflow with unusual feelings, and I do not
know how to describe what I feel. I do not feel that between us
thousand kilometers. I constantly think of you. I never feel such
warmth in my heart. Russian people really must get a visa. And if I
would not opportunity I would not begin to write to you. Some people
cannot get a visa at all, some people can get very quickly. - Depends
on ability of the person to prove that the purpose of visiting - not
emigration. The most approved categories are politics, doctors,
scientists and programmers. Therefore I already spoke you that if I
will feel that time to meet have come, I will do everything to
organize this meeting. My religion is Orthodox Christian. I go to
church as a rule some times in a month. It not often, but I think it
not the main thing if in the heart there is belief. My mom since the
childhood tried to impart to me the belief in God; but my belief has
come into my heart at conscious age. I cannot tell that I very pious
person. I believe and my belief comes from my heart. I think each
person believe anyway; but someone goes to church every day and reads
Bible every day while someone goes in church only when the soul really
need it. And everyone believes in God's fairness. And I think any
belief is right, if it helps the person to remove pain from soul. Not
important how often the person goes to church and reads Bible. The
main thing is what in your heart. The main thing is to live in the
consent with laws of conscience and honor alongside with Laws of God.
And has no value how the person believes. The main thing if belief
brings the peace in heart of the person. You have asked if I want
children. I very much love children. They should be loved. Children is
our future. Children are like music. They raise mood. Children are
flowers of a life. The wise man has told - the main thing that the
person during the life should make - to build the house, to put a tree
and to bring up children. If I will have children I will love them
more than life. You have asked me about work. My working day begins in
8.00. Working day in our clinic comes to an end at 22.00, but my
working day comes to an end at 17.00. I am one gynecologist on
Sovetka. Therefore I sometimes work without the days off.
By the way, I jog for many years. I really have good health because
I always try to support my figure and I jog every morning. I try to 
time in the air as much as possible. I have no car and I use transport
extremely seldom. I get contrast shower - alternation of a stream of 
and hot water. I since the childhood lived in conditions of cold winter
and damp autumn. Such climate is toughening health very well. I do not
smoke and I do not drink alcoholic drinks. I really love a healthy way
of life. And I am proud of it. I love sports very much. Though should 
that I never played golf, football and basketball, never boxed. But I
could surprise you, if I had opportunity to compete with you in beach
volleyball. By the way, when I studied at university, I visited section
of swimming and have reached good results. Some times I participated in 
competitions. Swimming - till now my favorite kind of sports.
Greg, I have to finish.With the best regards and with thoughts of you.

P.S.I want to give you a small gift and I send a pictures of me.
I hope you will like it.

P.S.S. You asked my address, I send you my address.

Hi my dear friend, Greg!!!!
I am very glad that you have written. Many thanks. You have again
raised my mood and have placed a happy smile into my face.
You have perfectly written "hello" in Russian.
I see your kindness; and all that you want in your life is so similar
to what I want. You are a most romantic man, and you are looking for
in the life the simple pleasures which will make the soul of any woman
a blossoming garden. You are a very funny man, and all your dreams are
filled with desire to love and to be loved, to wish and to be desired
to woman. I imagined many times all what you have described in your
letters. The woman who will win your heart will be the happiest woman.
You are able to make a life colorful, varied, funny and romantic. You
possess inexhaustible energy. Your heart is filled with tenderness and
kindness. You are a man each woman would dream about. I never thought
that I meet a man who is so similar to me in desires and dreams. When
I read your letters, I closed my eyes and saw all that you described.
And it brought pleasure into my heart. If you will send me a card you
should write the address as I have written to you. I understand your
request to call you from phone. I should tell that never so did not
worry about presence of phone, as now. I never thought that the
serious moments in our life can depend on presence of phone. But now I
understand that the fact that I have no phone can deprive me an
opportunity to learn a man who could become my friend. And it is
really afflicts me. But not all in this life depends on me.
Unfortunately I have no phone. Please, not be surprising. In Russia
many people have no phone. To get a phone it is necessary to write the
statement, to pay the big sum and after to wait for a long time queue.
Many people wait during several years. But I can try to call you from
the international item of communication. Can you give me your phone
number? If I can call you I will inform you. But anyhow, I understand
that for you would be easier to talk by phone. But alas, the life in
Russia is not similar to a life in America, and for the majority of
people a getting of phone is very long process. If for you phone is
the main criterion for the future relations, I of course will
understand you. But I have decided to use the Internet because it is
really accessible way for me. If nevertheless you want to continue
dialogue with me, I will be very glad. I cannot promise to you that I
will call you soon but if you will give me your number, I can promise
that I will search for a way to call you and sooner or later I will
call you. Contrast shower is when first you stand under a hot stream
of water, and then sharply switch to a very cold stream of water. It
is extremely useful procedure.
By the way Greg, today I went to job being absolutely confident that
your letter waits for me. Earlier I always went with thought that you
probably yet have not written, but today for the first time I went with
thought that your letter already waits for me. I went along the street
with the smile on my face. I could not hide my smile. People that went
past of me looked back and looked at me. Here already many employees 
that I have found such a wonderful friend, and nobody is surprised that 
friend lives in other country. Everybody only are glad. Nobody here is
surprised if the woman searches for not Russian man. I think the 
distinction is a wonderful thing. I don't understand Russian men and 
culture of dialogue with woman. They are not able to appreciate woman's
feelings, her fidelity, love. They do not appreciate sincerity and
aspiration of woman to do for a man absolutely everything. The only 
she need - the warmth and caress, which she wants to get from a man. It 
the problem of Russian men. Russian lady does everything for a man but
doesn't get anything from him. All what she needs is at least a couple 
tender words and gentle touching of his arms. Really it is so 
Really it is difficult to present for your lady a romantic evening and 
supper with candles? In Russia as a rule such gift give lady to man, 
not man to lady. You say that I am beautiful. In Russia I am not
considered like a beautiful lady. I am usual and simple woman with 
appearance. Russian men, practically all of them, usually show 
to ladies. They consider that woman only have to work, to cook, to wash
cloths and entertain a man when he wants. For Russian man to offend a
woman is a usual thing. I like to cook and to wash cloths but sometimes 
would like to receive simple caress, love and attention. I don't want 
offend all men. Of course there are good men in Russia, but there are 
of them. Men very often say dirty words (not normative lexicon) when 
talk with lady and consider that there is nothing bad in it. I want to
tell you about my ex-boyfriend. I feel that you will understand me. I 
boyfriend. We had good time together. He was kind. But he liked to 
When he got drunk he became an absolutely other person. He talked with 
by bad and dirty words. The time passed and his love to alcohol became 
habit. He became another person - rude and evil, even when did not 
He has found the big interest in beating of me. He began to beat me 
often and cruelly. He often knocked me in my face by fist and even 
me by foot when I already was on a floor. And every time when I being 
on a
floor looked in to his eyes, and with tears in my eyes asked him - WHY? 
he just responded that any man is a King and a place of any woman - 
foot of a true man. But the next day he smiled and talked with me as if
nothing had happened. In public he was very delicate, polite. All 
considered that he is a true gentleman. But when he found oneself at 
everything was on the contrary. I very much was afraid of him and I 
left him. My soul was wounded very much. After this I couldn't make 
get acquainted with another man. I don't trust Russian men. I am afraid 
give my love, but back to get roughness instead of love. I have told to
you about it because I want you to know that I open to you my soul. And 
want you to know about my ex-relationship with my ex-boyfriend. I feel
that I can tell to you about this because I feel that you have very 
heart. By the way, today Svetlana leaves hospital! And though she will

Are you able to transform quarrel into the peace, pleasure and a smile?
I hope my letter have not offended you in any way.
I have to finish. With all my kindness and tenderness.


Hi, Greg!
How is your mood? I hope that up to my letter your mood was fine, but 
my letter your mood became superfine (smile) Likely I am too
self-confident. But I am happy again because I have again received your
letter. I so waited for this minute,- when I can write to you. Our
friendship became the important part of my life, and I hope that in 
life as well. Sometimes I understand that the thread that connects me 
you now is not most strong. But I do not want this thread to be torn.
Right now I sit and I smile simply because I am glad that again I can 
share with you my thoughts. Sometimes I so want you to see my smile 
the similar moment because I think it is the most sincere smile! But
sometimes my smile leaves me because I know that now the only thing 
connects us is our thoughts, that we send to each other,- thoughts,
transformed into a letters that are not able to show all depth of
thoughts. But at the same time I understand that nobody knows what 
for us in the future. I hope my words do not offend you and maybe you 
think just as I... 
Thanks for all your words. I am very glad that you have expressed to
me your opinion. It is pleasant for me to realize that I have a friend 
- a
true man. I really do not understand how people can be very angry if 
love each other. I do not remember when at last time I became angry. I 
not like to be angry and I do not like to quarrel. I know absolutely
precisely that any disagreements can be solved with a smile on the 
face. I
try never to raise a voice. To force me to cry easier than to make me 
I like to conciliate people and when my friends in the quarrel, I 
act as conciliator. When I am upset, it can be understood on my eyes.
Elena says that when I am upset, I have such sad eyes that after
looking at me she wants to cry. Probably it is the truth because when I 
upset, everyone notices it. I become silent and imperceptible. I as 
talk with people, I smile, but all the same everyone see that something
wrong with me. To carry quarrel into the bed or to leave problem on 
tomorrow 's day is wrong. I never would do that. I never can be in a 
disagreement more than several minutes. I feel very much not 
if I am in a disagreement. Therefore I always try to reconcile at once. 
If people love each other and respect feelings and interests of each 
I am sure that serious disagreements cannot be the case. I always take
into account an opinion of other people; therefore I very seldom have 
disagreements with somebody. I respect any mind. And I am sure that 
any quarrel can be discussed simply in quiet conversation. It is enough 
to express your opinion and attentively and respectfully to listen to 
of your beloved. And the decision will come. And what can be more 
than a soft kiss after a short disagreement? Really?
Oh yes! I like to kiss! (I want to intrigue you! I could?) I think
that a kiss it in general the most romantic and sensual way of
expression of the love, tenderness and desire. People allow to each
other to learn a internal world and taste of each other; people
exchange breath. It is very sensual moment and of course it brings
pleasure to any person. Kiss it's display of feelings. By means of a
kiss is possible to tell very much. It is very important part of
relationship. Any displays of feelings, kiss or embrace are very
important. It is the basic factor of relationship. I think the more,
the better. I like to be kissed in a neck! It is my magic place! Also
shoulders, hands, a stomach and of course lips!!!!! I like to be
affectionate. It is a part of my character. I like to give tenderness
and I like to get the tenderness. Therefore I hate a rage and
roughness. I like to express feelings in all allowable ways. And I
think that it's wonderfully. I like any clothes on a man. I like a
suit, jeans, sweater, a white shirt with a tie or without. But when
the man wear a shirt without a tie, I like when the top button, or two
have been unbuttoned. But I hate when a man wear dirty shoes.
Yes, my lovely, I like when a man has hair on a chest! I think it very
beautifully and expressively! Maybe some day you will allow me to run 
hand at your chest and to enjoy softness of your hair. I think it is
delightful. I do not understand why women can dislike hair on a man's
chest. I think it very beautifully and makes a man very expressive!
Tomorrow difficult day waits for me. Probably tomorrow and
the day after tomorrow I will work outside of clinic.
We call it - "the ride working day". It is difficult day. At
this day several doctors and specialists of our clinic are going on the
special medical bus to various remote small settlements, small villages 
a thicket of the forest. These are poor villages which are located far
away from the big cities and settlements. In these villages there are 
doctors and clinics and people cannot visit clinic at any moment. In 
villages there is always a lot of people who need the doctor but cannot
reach clinic by self. Often it is a people who are not able to live
without help of other people, - basically are small children or old and
weak feeble people. We go in these villages on the bus with all 
equipment. People in these villages love us and wait more than 
But it is really the hard work if to take into account that we are 
there at 6 am, and we come back sometimes even after 10 pm! But I will 
your letter because our friendship gives force to me, and our dialogue
is a rest for my soul!
My dear friend Greg! I have to go! Sincerely and with thoughts about 
Mariya (Ma-ree-ya).


Hi my dear Greg!
Today is a fine day. Already in the morning I knew that I today
I will get an opportunity to write to you. And all the rest become
unimportant for me. Today I really haven't opportunity to write much.
Please forgive me. But I have enough time to tell to you that I
thought of you and waited when I will get opportunity to write you.
And I have time to tell the main thing. I do not know why, but today
I have woken up earlier than usually. I could not fall asleep again.
I simply sat near window and looked at the sky. Suddenly, a small 
appeared on my window. It was very beautiful birdie. This birdie looked
at me, and started to twitter. It was so unusually and beautifully. It 
a beautiful song. I looked at this small birdie and thought, that you
Greg now somewhere far away; maybe you sleep and see me in your
sleep-dream. And I so wanted you to see this small birdie and to hear 
delightful song. And I have whispered: "Fly off, my little birdie,
fly to my friend Greg, and tell to him that one girl, that is so far 
thinks of him and sends to him this song. And at this moment the birdie
has flinched and flew away as if this birdie has heard my words!
And I have thought, if today you Greg will see a small birdie
singing beautiful song, - be sure that it is my birdie I sent to you!
Forgive me, but I have to go. I want to send you my kiss if you do not 
Your Mariya.

P.S. I have for you a surprise. But I have one request to you.
I have written to you one phrase in Russian. I want what you
have tried to translate it.


Hi, my far, but dear friend Greg.
Many thanks for your letter. It was the long-awaited letter. I am 
madly glad to receive your letter. I am really glad that I have found 
I want to tell you today so much. Well, in Russian I wrote – I kiss
you gently. I have no phone at home and at work. Phone on work has
only internal connection. The line with the Internet has only an exit
in the Internet, but has no phone for conversations. This telephone
line is connected to the Taganrog center of telecommunication, but we
have no telephone lines for the international connection. To find a
way to call difficultly for me. If I would live in Moscow or Saint
Petersburg, I could find phone, but here a telephone system is
undeveloped. I will search for a way anyhow. I already wrote you that
at first I studied your language at school because in Russia the
studying of foreign language is the obligatory program. After school I
have continued studying at university, then on special rates of the
English language. It’s my hobby. I have been studying your language
for 18 years. I have not understood what you meant when you asked me
to tell that I am real? Your words really offend me. What you meant
when you say that I can be not real? Of course I am real. And why I
should deceive you? I do not understand why I can deceive you? I am
looking for serious relations. But any relations begin with
friendship. Any relations are based on trust, friendship, sincerity,
fidelity. And I do not understand, how possibly to deceive if the
purpose - relations, friendship and maybe the love. Anybody never
during all my life could not reproach me in lie. I cannot lie and I do
not see in it any purpose. And of course your words offend me. I had
in my life a lot of insults and humiliations and I have no desire and
time to play games. Here I have been surrounded with the lie often.
And I hate lie. I think that sincerity and trust - the strongest base
in any relations, especially in relationship of a man and a woman. I
do not know why you have asked me if I am for real. You offend me.
Today I wanted to say just the right things to you. I didn't want
to offend or upset you in anyway, and it really bothered me that saying
something wrong may do that. I always speak directly from my heart but
sometimes, words must be chosen carefully. I feel somewhat lost when
I have no opportunity to use a computer to read your letter. In my 
I feel contentment and joy when I think of you. I have never done this 
my life, (tried to initiate a relationship halfway across the world), 
I am more than willing to learn whatever is need to succeed, if it is 
desire as well. I also believe that couples should be the best friends,
which trust and share with each other everything that they feel.
I don't know if my word and thoughts make sense to you; and for me so 
to put them in typed words that you will feel and understand. I believe
in God, and I believe that I have been put through trials to be ready 
meeting a man with whom I will spend the rest of my life in loving, to
better value him, respect him and cherish the love that he would give 
only asking that I return the same. I hope that my words and letters 
not boring to you, but they are much more than mere words, they are my
thoughts and feelings, and I send them out to you. I wish to know you 
the more intimate level, I would like you to share your true dreams, 
hopes, your feelings of the heart with me, I truly wish to connect with
you on a level that goes way beyond simply friendship. Please don't 
that I am fool for thinking these things, I believe that to succeed in
anything, you have to be honest, and that is what I am doing with you.
Could you seriously close your eyes for just a minute, and think and 
of what a life we could share, what it would be like,- the fun of 
each other. I really believe that dreams really come true for the 
that dare to believe in dreams, because if they believe in them enough
hard, dreams could become in reality. Here, where I was raised, the 
of true love from a man is something that is more similar to a Mirage
or self-deception, rather than mutual feeling which two enamored people
can give each other. I hope that I am not rambling on with my words. 
I have so much that I wish to share with you, and each time I write to 
I feel there is never enough time to say everything that I want to say,
and I always feel that I have forgotten something important that I 
to share with you. Greg, I want to tell that you are very beautiful
for me. I mean the beauty that is within you, beauty of your internal 
It is a type of beauty that is very special and rare. Most men have 
appearances, but not have beauty inside, and this is where true beauty 
This is what for me is the most important and significant in all limits 
of my character, my soul and my consciousness. I think that you are 
handsome, in the sence of what beauty should be. I want to reduce 
of my entire letter only to one thought. I don't know if I could 
explain all my thoughts and feelings, which overflow me now, or not. I 
to tell that I feel, we become very good friends and I really enjoy
our friendship. I aspire to learn you more and I dare to hope that you
suppose a thought that our relations can develop more than it enough
for simple friendship. It's the way I feel. I'll look forward to your
reply as always with anticipation and impatience.... 
I hope that your reply will not have of a harsh nature, and I look 
of its arrival. With tenderness, Your Mariya. 


Hi Greg!
Your letter means so much for me. Thank you. I so waited your letter 
so wanted to find out what you will tell me. You remember I told to
you about the woman with the child which works in our clinic? her name 
Thanks for your words and thanks for your feelings. Your words have 
touched my heart and have penetrated into depth of my soul. Thanks for 
sincerity and tenderness. And thank you for your feelings! I never 
thought that 
in the world there is a man who can make me feel like flower only by 
of words. Thank you that you have brought spring into my heart!
Greg, today I write to you with special worry but as well with
pleasure and hope. I really hope that everything that I will tell you
today will make you happy. Last time when I wrote you my honest letter
I had the big sadness in my heart, and even though I tried to not show 
I think you have noticed it. Greg, I was sad because the boss informed
me that approximately in three weeks the accounting department will be 
for full re-equipment and repair. And when he have told me it, I 
my heart will stop, because when it will take place, I will not be able
to communicate with you during several months! And it has brought 
sadness into my heart. But after my boss informed me about close of
accounting department, the accounting department informed me that 
approximately in 
two weeks I will get my vacation! When I thought that I can lose you 
some months, inside my soul I at once have felt that I can't simply 
it. And I have felt that together with sadness in my heart has appeared 
an other feeling - feeling of confidence, desire to make new steps 
of simply waiting for something. I have understood that our relations 
important for me much more than I thought. And it so wonderfully. I had 
vacation for two years. And now I will have vacation. But a thoughts 
I will not be able to communicate with you, to receive your letters and
to write mine,- all these thoughts has brought a pain to me, pain that
I can't endure. I talked with Svetlana and she has asked me what I 
think to do.
And when she has asked me it, I have understood that inside my soul I 
know the answer to this question. And I have told that I do not want to 
such a long-awaited vacation in loneliness. I can't accept a thought 
I will not talk to you Greg during of month or two. And I have told
that I want to meet you Greg! I have told her that I want to spend 
my vacation with you Greg! I can come to you, and we can spend time
together if you want. And first I was afraid that if I will tell you
about it in the letter, you will write me that you do not want to see 
or can not meet me. And it would hurt my heart. But Svetlana have told, 
you Greg and I are such a good friends, our relations are built on 
sincerity, therefore Greg will be happy to spend time with me. And I
really think that it would be delightfully. So, what you will say, 
if I will offer you a meeting? Would you be happy to see me and to 
with me several days? I cannot imagine at all how it would be 
You would show me your life, we would learn each other in a real life.
We would look into the eyes of each other, we could hold our hands, 
each other silly stories, laugh and tease each other, watch the stars 
in the
night sky and have romantic evening, go to the movie or we could simply 
on a bench in the park, and who knows what else we could do together...
I would be happy to do all this together with you, instead of again
be lonely without you and our friendship. I simply want to meet you.
I already knew and I have been told earlier, but I have found out again
all I need to do to come to your country. I already have the passport. 
I will avoid usual procedure of visa's approval. Being the doctor, I 
ask the visa on behalf of our Ministry of Health, because if the 
have good official support from official bodies, if the applicant have
official recommendations and directions to various sorts of conference,
seminars, - it will relieve of necessity to wait for some months the
decision of the commission, and will remove all problems connected with
necessity to prove that the purpose of travel is not emigration. Being 
doctor I will have support and guarantees from Ministry of Health of
Russian Federation, and it is certainly the best guarantor. Of course
I must visit improbable quantity of the departments, to collect 
quantity of documents, to find as many as possibly of other official 
persons, institutions and people for support; to get petitions. But if
I will quickly collect all necessary documents, I will get the visa in 
or two weeks! So I have filed an application for the visa, Greg, with
happiness and with hope that you will be happy to spend some days with 
I do not ask you about anything. I will use my monetary savings and I 
make everything by self. It is my vacation and I will not be a burden.
Would you be happy to spend some days with me soon, Greg? Anyway, we
must meet. It is possible to wait eternally. But I believe that I will 
my vacation not accidentally; and I believe that the accounting 
department will be
closed at the same time not accidentally as well. It is not 
It is time to make a choice, to make the decision, to take new step. 
such opportunity will not be repeated again. I so long waited my 
and I want my vacation to be especial. What can be better than a 
meeting of
two friends? The first meeting. It is simply delightful and I thank 
that I have got such an opportunity,- an opportunity to meet my dear 
the opportunity to learn each other in real life, the opportunity to 
time which we can spend together. And I believe that it can become the
beginning of something new in our lifes and in our relations. And I am 
happy to get a vacation because it is time which I can spend in any way 
I want,
and I want to spend this vacation with you Greg! So what will you tell?
Would you like to spend time with me? Would you be glad to meet me? 
Would you be happy to have the first meeting at your airport? 
I will wait for your answer with pleasure. Your sincere Mariya.


Hi my Greg!
I waited for your letter with fear and with pleasure at the same time!
And I am very happy to receive your letter! I am ready to jump and 
laugh and sing songs! And the reason - you Greg! Thank you for your
letter and your thoughts. I have only two real friends - Svetlana and 
I see Irina much less than Svetlana because Irina works as the
conductor in a train and when she on work, we do not see her for 4 
When she comes back, she usually very much tired and has only two days 
rest, and then again 4 days in a way. Therefore I usually see her once 
a week.
I am so happy that we will meet. Now I have the ocean of emotions and I 
at all 
do not know what to say. I am worried very much. I very much hope that 
we can 
perfectly spend time together. I only am afraid, that if we will meet, 
I will asks 
so many questions and to chatter unceasingly, that you soon will escape 
from me.
I get my vacation once a year. My vacation will begin approximately
about December, 11. At this time I can arrive to you. But unfortunately 
schedule of my vacation is not flexible. Therefore I hope you will be 
to meet me at this time. If you have not enough time, I will be happy 
all the same.
I will be happy in any case. It is better to wait when you will come 
from work, 
than to sit in my apartment and to know that nobody will come!!! 
Duration of my vacation is 24 workdays. But quantity of days which I 
spent with you depends on when I will get my vacation and when I will
order the ticket. How many days you want to be with me?
I have submitted the visa application. It will take about one or two 
week I think. 
Complexity of approval of the visa will be reduced to a minimum as I 
will have
petitions and characteristics from a work place, from respected 
and legal persons; guarantee documents and a various sort of the 
information and inquiry, which will give to commissions the confidence, 
that my intentions is not emigration. I will get the petition and a 
from Ministry of Health of Russian Federation! It is a respected 
and any person working in the field of medicine is under care of the 
Except of that I will pay for preparation for interview with the 
Every day I think - what my friend Greg will tell me today, what mood
he will have today? And as soon as I get free minute, I rush to 
accounting department
to find out if you have written to me or not. And when I receive your
letter, I start to smile from ear to ear anticipating the best time of
my day - time when I read your letter and when I write to you the all 
thoughts. These are the most important minutes of my day. And these
minutes I don't hear anything and I don't see anything except of lines 
paragraphs which in my mind will be transformed into small movie, movie
about you, my dear Greg. And you cannot imagine at all how it
wonderfully! Sometimes I think, what would be if I have not found the
boldness in myself to write you? What would be if I didn't believe that 
I can find a man in such a way? I always want to think that I the 
woman, but I feel that actually it is not so. I am ready to give my 
for the sake of person who are close and dear for me, I am ready to 
my well-being for the sake of well-being of other person but when I 
of myself, I often become timid and all my boldness disperses like the
fire's smoke. I am often afraid to make something, to take some step
simply because of fear that it will be an incorrect step. I am often
afraid to ask people about anything simply because of fear to get the
negative answer. Not always, but it happens. What would happen, if you
have not answered my first letter? Nothing would happen! And grey
monotonous days again would lie on a way of my life by infinite
impenetrable veil. Do you want to know what I did today? First off, I 
should tell that I slept with a smile on my face! At least when I have
woken up and have looked at the mirror, I have noticed that I smile! 
I cleaned a teeth and I had smile! Then, I jog and I smiled as if 
I watched funny movie. Then, I have cooked a breakfast and drank a 
with a smile on my face! Then, I have come to clinic, and I could not 
my smile. I was ready to laugh and I at all had no desire to work! It 
a very bad symptom for the doctor! (Smile). Everything around have 
to me a beautiful and wonderful. And even the severe boss, when have 
that I look at him and I smile, he began to survey himself attentively
and even have come near to the mirror to see if anything wrong! He has 
that something wrong with his clothes! All the day I work with smile
on my face! Elena looks at me and smiles as well. Of course she 
the reason, and it makes her happy as well! And when time of sleep will 
I will lie in my bed with the same smile on my face! And if you till 
have not understood why I smile, I will tell you! I smile because I 
of you, Greg! And it brings joy! I am so happy that I have in my life
such a man as you! Thank you that you are in my life! I have to go. Now
I will not have a lot of time after work because after work I will have
one more working day! (Smile). You may ask what I mean? The preparation 
my trip! You cannot imagine at all how many deals I must do for our 
I even have asked the boss to reduce my working day or to allow me to 
some hours off in the middle of day to make some things, because after 
5 pm
not all departments works! Of course now I should work in the days off 
to have more of free time at week-days. But thoughts about our meeting
give me force and energy! I am sure that everything will be perfectly!
I will wait your letter! Please, write me because I need your letters
and support more than ever! 
Your Mariya!


Hi My Greg! 
Thank you for your letter. You became the most dazzling moment of my 
How I wish you saw how Svetlana is happy that we will meet! She is sure 
our meeting will make us happy. It is simply impossible to talk to her
now! (Smile). She has now only one theme for conversation - you Greg!
She constantly asks about you, asks - what I will do together with you,
she asks - what I will do at the airport, she asks - what I will cook
for you. She asks how I am going to impress you, to intrigue! She even
asks how I will tempt you! (Smile). She say that I do everything 
and I should not be afraid of anything at all. To conquer the road can
only one who goes on this road. Svetlana is very glad that I have found 
and she sends you her friendly greetings and a wishes of 
happy expectation of me! (Smile). I do not have necessity to attend
any doctors' conferences. My breakfast - coffee and a sandwich with
cheese. I like coffee, but I drink it a little. 
Greg, please, don't be angry with me if I cannot write you much now.
I hope you understand that I even after my working day in clinic must 
too much for our meeting. Today I will go to Ministry of Health. I 
this is one of the most important deals for me right now. Today I will 
them the all my medical documents and tomorrow I will probably get all
documents and forms of petitions which I must fill out as soon as 
Then I will go to Army Garrison where were working my parents. They 
collect for me all the information about my parents, about history of 
death of my father and mother. I must have data about work of my 
not only in this Army Garrison, but also in all others Garrisons where
my parents worked during all life. To make it extremely difficultly, 
if to take into account that my parents worked in Army Garrisons in 
points of our huge country. But I am sure that I will get the 
because here many officers who remember my father, and I hope they will 
glad to help me. Greg, today I feel that I start to worry more
than I even could imagine. I am very glad that I do all this. And I
think of our meeting every minute. The meeting at the airport... 
I don't think that many people on our planet have an opportunity to 
such a delightful moment - the moment of the first meeting at the 
It is so beautiful. I feel that it will be very touching moment for
each of us. I never travelled so far away. And I worry very much.
But I imagine us together and it calms me down. I see us together, I 
see us
walking in the park; I see us speaking about serious and about silly 
or playing cards or a checkers (and the one who lose will execute any 
of the winner (smile)), I see wonderful dinners at home and outside! 
I see you sitting on a sofa with a juicy peach in your hand and I see 
dancing in front of you beautiful dance, or maybe even erotic dance 
how about Belly dance? (Smile). I do it stunningly!(Smile).
I see us swimming; I see us on a roof of a house, watching the full 
I see us fighting by pillows; I see us in the evening at home, with
romantic light of candles; I see us cooking together Russian pelmenies
and American pizza (smile); I see me in your embraces. All this waits 
for us
in the near future; and I enjoy, anticipating this delightful time 
Do you feel the same, Greg? Greg, would you like to give me massage
of my back? I would like to give you massage! But I must warn you, that
if you want to give me massage, you should not touch my ribs!(Smile)
The reason - I the most ticklish woman in Russia(smile).
Greg, I madly am afraid of titillation! If someone tickles my
foot or ribs, I begin to laugh loudly, to kick and to scratch, to 
and to jump! Therefore if you will give me massage and you will tickle 
you will feel like a cowboy on a wild undomesticated mare on the rodeo! 
By the way, Greg, are you ticklish? Do you snore?
(Forgive me for this question. Do not answer, if you do not want.
Maybe one day I will find out all this all the same! (Smile)). 
Will you sing serenades for me? I would be happy if you would sing 
and songs for me! I would remunerate you by kisses! (Smile).
Greg, I should finish the letter. I must do much so that you had an 
to give me massage and to get the massage from me! (Smile).
Please, write me because now I need you and your letters very very 
because I worry so much... 
Your Mariya.

P.S. When I studied at university, I once acted at a university concert
and I danced belly dance. I hope you will enjoy these pictures.


Hi my dear Greg!
Thank you for your letter! Every morning I wake up with a pleasant 
of our meeting! And each new day reduces distance between us! Every new
day makes us closer to each other. I so hope that we will meet.
Greg, I the doctor, but I cannot think of anything except of our 
(Smile). Even my patients have noticed it! I think it is good that
I the doctor of gynecologist because if I would be for example the 
and would think only of you instead of work, my patients would run out
from my cabinet with horror in the expanded eyes! (Smile).
I read your letters and cried, because you have touched my heart and
soul. You have hit me in the heart. I cannot find the words to express 
my feelings to you. I cannot find the words to explain what I feel. I
never heard such gentle, tender, kind, beautiful, fantastic words. You
have won my heart. It was not possible to anybody. I am happy, that I 
found you. I have already found happiness. Likely if I will see you, 
I will go mad. I think, yes, I think that in my heart was born the new 
which people call … No, I will not tell it now. I will tell it when I 
meet you.
I will tell it when I will see your eyes and when you will see my eyes.
If a Russian woman wants to impress her lover she will not tell to him
what she wants to do! She will prefer to meet and to impress so, that 
man will soar in the clouds with happiness. But a clever woman will not
tell beforehand what she wants to make and how she can impress!!!!
Therefore, the only one way for you to find out what Russian woman will 
to impress her lover - to wait when I will come to you and I will do 
what I want to do already now!!! (Smile).
Greg, Svetlana say that last time she saw me such a happy many years 
- when I was the student girl! She asserts that you have changed me
absolutely! I began often to get my hairbrush and to correct my 
(Smile). I began often to sing songs aloud! (Smile). I began often to 
into the world of fantasies so, that sometimes I at all don't hear 
talks to me or asks me about something! (Smile). It is so amusingly,
pleasantly and unusually! She is very grateful to you and very glad 
that we will meet! She helps me by all possible ways. Greg, do you
remember in my very first small letter I have told that I want to find
a man who will compel my soul to blossom? I want to tell you, that my 
blossoms! You have brought a spring into my soul and now I feel like
a flower blossoming under long-awaited beams of the warm sun!
Thank you Greg! Greg, you cannot imagine what tense time I have now.
I actually haven't even one free minute. I already was in Ministry of 
and I got all petitions! It is great! In the Ministry I have been told 
I must visit all patients which I visit on a "Trip Day"- they must fill 
forms of petitions for me. Of course they will be happy to do it. These
people love me and all doctors who visits them! It will be a big 
for me. The Ministry will make the report about my work in the 
places where not each person is ready to work. I also will get the 
and the characteristic from my clinic. Tomorrow I and Svetlana will 
our own "Trip Day"! We will go together to those settlements. Probably 
will go there not only tomorrow but also the day after tomorrow because
the one day is not enough to visit all people who knows me. After that
I must legalize all documents at the notary. Svetlana will help me to 
the full report about my biography in Municipal Department. If Svetlana
will be able to agree with them, they will get for me the information
about me and my family from all Municipal Departments of those regions
where I and my parents lived during all life. By self we would never 
all this information. I get tired very much not only spiritually,
but physically as well. And when I come home, I simply fall onto a bed,
and I simply lie on a bed some time looking at a ceiling. But if we
will do everything quickly, I will have interview with the commission.
After this interview the commission will inform me if my visa is 
or not. Tomorrow I will have also consultation - preparation for 
It is very important point for me as well! Maybe I worry too much,
but I cannot calm myself! Forgive me that I write to you about my 
But I really worry. I knew that I must do much for our meeting, but
I at all could not assume that I will worry. Svetlana says that if she
would be on my place, she would become confused and simply would not 
what to do. She says that she envies my endurance and the power of 
I never told her,- but actually I often feel fear, I often feel like 
woman. I really need moral support. I since the childhood make all 
by self, and my parents taught me never to show weakness or confusion.
And I always tried to do without anybody's help or advice, even though
in my heart I often feel like very weak woman. Greg, are you the leader
in relationship with woman? Do you like to make the decision by self?

P.S. Greg, please tell me again the name and the code of the
International Airport up to which I must fly!!! I must be sure, that
I have the correct information.

Your Mariya.


Hi my Greg!
Thank you for your letter. I am so happy. Thoughts about you calm my 
You don't know how all your words are important for me. I know what 
you write me with, and your emotions caress my heart. And I know 
of words, that could help me to tell you how you are important, dear 
wonderful for me. And I so wait for that a moment when I will be able 
to tell
you these all words, at the same time looking into your eyes. I so wait
for that a moment when I will see your smile and I will read in your 
all your thoughts. And now my heart enjoys fine feeling - feelings of 
and hope that soon our meeting will come true. And sometimes it is 
impossible by means of only words to express all shades of joy. Any 
cannot replace a glance and a smile, any words are not able to replace
tenderness of touch.
Greg, I so waited for this opportunity to write you, because I wanted
very much to tell you that today has happened something bad, and this
time it is not a joke unfortunately. Maybe I shouldn't tell you, but I 
so frightened, that I cannot hold it inside. Today at night when I 
I have suddenly heard a terrible sound of a breaking glass! I at once 
woken up but I could not understand anything absolutely. And at this 
right into my room has flown a brick; and having broken the 
this brick has fallen in several centimeters from me. I so strongly was
frightened, I could understand nothing and simply instinctively I have
rushed onto a floor and have hidden under my bed. And at this moment
other stones has flown into my room, breaking windows and glasses in my
apartment. I shouted and cried. I at all did not know what to do. 
could not strike me because my bed protected me. But I have been
frightened so, that I simply has closed my ears by my hands and cried.
In absolute darkness several stones broke windows and fell near to me. 
everything has stopped. But I continued to lay and cry. I was afraid 
to look out from under a bed. We haven't here even militia and phones. 
in my life I was so frightened. After some time I nevertheless have 
from under a bed. I have looked thru the broken window but of course I 
seen there anybody. I do not understand who did it and why. I have
run to Svetlana and I have seen that her windows are broken as well. 
And not
only in her house, but in some other houses as well. We have cleaned 
apartment and than have returned to my apartment together. But I could 
fall asleep this night anymore. I do not know who did it. Svetlana say
that probably it was young addicts who simply had a fun, because if
someone would really want to cause to us physical harm, they could 
enter our apartments. But I really don't understand why someone did it.
Now I am ok, Greg! I do not want to finish my letter with bad thoughts.
And I will tell you something good! If you would see how I worry. But
I waited for this news for a long time. And I cannot imagine at all how 
will worry the following some days! Anyhow, today I finally got the 
I will have the interview with the commission! It is the most important
point for me. I prepared to this for a long time. After I will have
interview I will find out the final decision! The commission will 
me their decision, and then you and I will know if we will meet or not. 
I don't want to say "IF", but it is really a very difficult and tense
moment. And I am simply not sure if I will have confidence and 
But I have to calm down myself. My worry - our enemy. I think I am 
I feel that I can do and tell everything correctly, and we will meet!
You should be with me in your thoughts. Without you I so am afraid! I 
almost all documents which should impress the commission. I hope that
everything what I have made will help us. Please, tell me that you 
in it. Be with me in your thoughts. I hope nothing bad will happen to 
anymore. And I am happy that Svetlana and I didn't get any traumas 
today. I cannot
imagine at all what would be in this case. But I am ok, and it is most 
I will think of you, so please, think of me as well. With all my
tenderness. Your Mariya.


Hi my Greg!
Thank you for your letter! I write to you the letter and I smile. I am
so happy. I think that everything most difficult has remained behind 
I had the interview! I knew that it will be difficult conversation, but
I could not imagine at all that I must answer to so many questions. And
prior to the beginning of interview I have been so frightened, I so
worried. But as soon as they have asked the first question, I at once
became absolutely calmed down. I have ceased to worry absolutely. I 
sat, and, looking directly into eyes of the commission simply and 
answered to questions. I spoke everything what I think, in all 
as always. They asked me actually about everything! They asked me about 
life, about my childhood, about death of my parents, about terrorism,
about my work, about my last relationship. They have read all documents
which I has collected. They asked me why I work voluntary in such
a difficult places. They asked me about my belief in God. And often I 
on their faces that they expected from me not such the answers, but I 
want to speak beautiful things which pleasantly to listen to. I simply
spoke sincerely all what in my heart. They have told that such the 
are the big rarity for the applicant. Because usually applicants do not
answer so sincerely. Usually, applicants think some time and try to 
so that the answer was most convenient for the commission. And first
I thought that my answers have not satisfied them, but they have told 
to listen to my answers very pleasantly and unusually. They have told 
"bitter" sincerity always better than "sweet" flattery. Besides, they
really have been impressed with fact that I had such a great support 
many people living in different regions.
Probably I the most successful lady on our planet because I have found
a kindest and gentle man who is capable to make so that my heart have
been overflow with feelings and my soul aspires to cross space and
ocean and to rush into his life, to be united in a single whole with
his soul. Many thanks for your anxiety on me. It was really awfully.
My neighbors never will go to help or ask what's happened. People in
Russia seldom help each other. It is necessary to shout the FIRE to
interest someone. If to shout KILL, nobody will go for the help. But
if to shout a ''the fire'' then curious people can become interested
in supervision of a fire and can go out from apartments. If near was
Elena, we together would not become puzzled. She very courageous lady,
much more courageous than I. Together we would think up something. But
I was one and very much was frightened. Thanks for your answer to my
question! I knew that you will answer so! I am glad and happy to know
that you are a wise man! Most of all I like when a man asks my council
or my opinion, attentively listens, considers, "weighs all plus and
minus" and Itself makes a decision. But there is the only one place,
where your leadership could be disputable - the kitchen!!! (Smile). I
always was a leader in kitchen!!! (Smile). What do you want to know
about my job? Do you remember that I am gynecologist? If I will say
about my job in detail, I think you will stop to write to me (smile).
Unfortunately I have no pictures of me with my girlfriends, we
photograph each other. Thanks for the information of the airport. No,
I cannot print your letters.
Greg! Maybe in some hours I will find out the decision!!!!! I can't
believe. I feel that I did all correctly. Today I saw my parents in my
sleep-dream, and they smiled to me. I know that it is their approval.
I see my parents in sleep-dream very seldom! I always knew that dream
will never simply fall into hands from the sky. I always knew that if 
want the dream to come true, you must do for this purpose all what in 
forces. I know that it is necessary to believe, hope and struggle. And
I really struggled, I tried to do all what in my forces. And I hope God
will help us. After all difficulties, after all efforts I believe that
everything will be fine! I really feel that I did everything well. I 
very much, but my heart say to me that I should smile. And I smile 
I feel that I will meet you. I feel that the meeting at the airport 
be beautiful and romantic. I will tell you everything what I will feel
at that moment, and you will tell me. And then we will leave the 
and we will chatter and laugh. I will tell you how I endured the flight
in the plane and what I was thinking about. You will tell me how you
waited for me at the airport. And then we will have a wonderful time
together. We will walk, spend evenings, to watch funny and scary 
movies, -
and I will hide under your hand at the most scary moment... We will 
together the first beams of the sun and will see off a magnificent 
We will sit near a window and to drink hot tea while in the street will 
a strong rain. How I want to have a breakfast together and a supper 
candles. How I want to shout together with you at the baseball stadium;
or simply to lay on a bed, and to tell each other about a life. How I 
all this - simple things which will bring to us so many joy. If 
will be fine, I will start the most difficult process - preparation of 
suitcase! (Smile). Right now I talked with the boss, and he has told 
probably today I will find out an exact date of beginning of my 
But I have to go! My legs shiver as if I the schoolgirl! (Smile).
Wish me luck and think of me!
Your Mariya.


Hi, my Greg.
I even do not know what to tell first. I simply hope that you will be 
The most important, finest news - I did it! I got the visa! I am very 
I as well have found out that I will get vacation December, 08, 2006.
I have been to the company that reserves airway tickets. I asked
them how I can reach Columbia (CAE) and how much it costs. They 
have offered to me the roundtrip ticket that costs $1574.80 USD. I 
asked them to find 
cheapest ticket, because this price is expensive for me. They have 
that they have a cheaper ticket and the beginning of the flight 
December, 12, 2006. 
It costs $1,152.40 USD. It was the best variant for me. I asked them to 
reserve a ticket. 
But they refused, because they can't reserve the ticket without advance 
I must pay full cost. I have asked if I can pay a part of money now, 
the other part later. They have told that it is possible, but I will be
limited by term. And if I will not pay the full cost of the ticket 
of this term, I will lose already nested money. I have agreed because 
is the only chance for me, because I must give to anti-emigration
committee a data about my payment. By this moment I had only the 
sum of money which I had after all my expenses. 
I paid $ 750 USD. But it was not enough for them. In a panic, all what 
and I could do - we pawned our gold earrings and rings and I got $ 129 
That is all I could do. The number of the flight on which I will get 
the ticket is 31 Delta Airlines.
The time of departure from Moscow is 12:55 pm. The time of arrival in 
Columbia is 10:43 pm.
I will change a plan in New York (JFK), number of the flight 193 Delta 
Then I will change a plan in Atlanta, number of the flight 4786 Delta 
After this I will fly to Columbia, to you.
I know that probably I simply must tell that I can't come to you 
I haven't the remaining sum. I know that I promised to do all by self, 
I was sure that I can. I did not want to ask you. But after I did 
everything I did, 
I cannot simply tell that I will not come to you. I have passed through 
many difficulties, and I have overcome the most difficult. But all the
same I have disgusting feeling that I could not fulfill the promise. I 
always ready to do all what is possible,- to fulfill my promises, but 
the same time I understand that any person could get in such a 
To get the visa I have spent much more money than I expected. But 
were ready to help me only if I will pay them. I paid more than 500
dollars to get all documents, I paid in municipal committee, in the
ministry. Even officers in army garrison have compelled me to pay for
their help. I did not expect all this, but up to the last moment I was
sure that I still can make everything. I expected that I can get a
vacation payment. We get a vacation payment after ending of a vacation.
I asked to give me this money now because I need this money urgently. 
at the last moment I have got the answer that I can get this money 
only in case of serious illness or for example in case of death of the
relative. I feel so guilty. I was sure that nothing can prevent our 
But I must pay remaining sum. It is $ 273 USD. And I must pay money
before December, 01 evening. Otherwise I will lose my nested money 
and our jewelry will be sold out simply in vain. I know that I should 
not ask
you, and I am very ashamed to do it. And maybe I really simply had to 
you that I can't meet with you because I could not provide my travel
completely. But I cannot simply refuse our meeting because then all my
diligence, forces, nerves, means will be spent in vain. I understand 
for you it is too big sum to lend me. You are not obliged to help me. 
500 dollars which I have spent to get the visa, and 879 $ that I have
given for the ticket are huge money for me. But I want you to know that 
have given everything not for the sake of myself, but for the sake of 
for the sake of you and me. And I was happy all this time. If you want 
meet me, to help me to make our meeting, please, send money to the help
before December, 01 evening. I want you to be confident in my 
that is why I send you the view of my visa. I want you to see the 
result of my efforts.
I do not know if you want to help me or already not. But you have told 
I should let you know if there is anything you can do to help me. I 
believe you
even though I am afraid to ask. But I have no other exit. I need you.
If you can help me I will tell you what I have found out. Svetlana 
said that you 
can help me with the help of remittance system. So I have addressed to 
nearest bank. I have been told that they use the system ’’Western 
They have told that it is very convenient office for me; and this 
system works 
always and reliably. I give you necessary elements for sending money
with the help of ’’Western Union’’:
The name of bank:
TAGANROG , 347900 
for Mariya Gorshounova
In bank I have been told, that to get the money, I must tell to 
employee of bank 
your full name, your full address, exact sum which I should receive and 
confidential numbers - Money Transfer Control Number. You will get this 
in your bank if you will send your help. Only with presence of all this 
I can get your help.
I do not know what answer I will get from you. I very much am afraid 
that you 
will not help me. But I want to tell, that I really need you, and I 
simply can't endure
the thought that I did almost everything, but I will not meet you. I 
understand that
it is big money. I have given all my forces, but together we are 
stronger. I really 
ask you to help me. I will give you back all your money at the earliest 
I have written you honestly and sincerely. Are you with me?
Your Mariya.

I hope we can put a stop to "her" and catch her if at all possible... she really almost got me on this one, but worst of all she got to my heart!!

Mariya Krohmalyova (Tomsk, Russia)

This is a SCAMReport on Mariya Krohmalyova "aka"(Mary, Masha, Mar) from Tomsk, Russia.

She has been using three e-mail accounts, that I believe Yahoo had shut them all down. I think she figured out, I was reporting her and stopped sending me her new e-mail address after the third one was closed... but she still needs to be reported to get her name and these pictures on the black-list!!! (,, ) 

I am Divorced 37 year old male. Self-employed from Columbia, South Carolina.

She originially contacted me from on October 12, 2006. She proceeded to fall in love with me very fast and was so persistent on wanting to come to USA and see me and for me to send her money via WESTERN UNION. She at first said she would need $250-$290. Then she supposedly paid for her own blood test and still needed the remaining $275. And she asked for it about 4 times total before I got her e-mail addresses shut down by Yahoo.

Hi my new friend Darius.
Sorry for delay... It was very pleasant for me to receive your answer.
I hope now we can begin our dating. Some days ago I have come to 
computer just
to find some information and was looking through the sites. And
my eyes fell down on your profile. It was some dating site.
It called IwantU if I am right...
I liked your information and I have seen and decided to
write you to learn more about you.
So if it is interesting for you,
I believe I should tell you now more about myself.
My name is Mariya, shortly Masha.
But you can call me how you want, it is the same name.
I'm 28 years old soon 29. I was born on December, 22, 1977.
I was born and I live now in Russia, in city Tomsk.
It is about 3500 km to east from Moscow in the cantral part of Russia.
I have never was been outside of Russia but I have been in several
cities in my country. I have never had friends from other countries
therefore it is very intersting for me to have new friend from another
country. I'm brunette with grey eyes. Sometimes I color my hair.
My real hair color is brown.
My height 5 ' 7 ", weight about 62 kg (120 pounds). I live alone
in an apartment. My mom lives in my city also not far from me. I use 
program-translator therefore my apologies for bad English language. I
hope that you will understand me. I shall wait your following letter
and want to learn about you more in detail.
I sending a picture to you like I promised…
Not very good pic but you can just see how I looks like...
Hope you will like me, anyway I will wait for your
next letter soon.

Hi my lovely friend Greg.
I am very glad to read your letter again.
No, we do not celebrate Halloween here in Russia at all…
I never wrote to you about that I have a hobby - I collect old coins.
I have about 65 in my collection. I began to be engaged in it when
to me was about 6 years. I very much like to do it but I have no many
money to increase a collection new copies. But I do not worry about it
because I treat quietly this. I think that it is pleasant to you.
You know for these some letters I have fallen in love with you very
strongly. I for a long time did not test anything to men, and you seem
have demented me. I understand that it a little bit silly so quickly
to fall in love but it is valid so. I never thought that I shall fall
in love with persons with help Internet but I so have strongly grown
fond of you that to me now not important as we have got acquainted
with you because the main thing this that that I love you madly and it
is very healthy...
I very much want to arrive to you but unfortunately
I have no such opportunity. Yesterday I have learned all about my trip
to you, I must have registration of visa and passport, so I must pay
about 250-290 $ US for those things. This amount includes: payment for
visa and passport registration, payment for promptness
because sometimes registration borrow 4-6 months. Also this price
include Interview in embassy and medicalsurvey. (I must have blood
testing before leaving) I will have work visa so my firm
will pay for tickets so you must not worry about tickets or money for
tickets because my working firm will pay for this. But I must ask
money help from you for payment for registration of my work visa and
passport to your country, because I do not have any money right now.
So please try to find way to help me this money sooner, so I might pay
for it because as you may understand it will borrow sometime. So if
you would send money help that amount today or tomorrow I will be able
to pick up your money help faster and pay for it, so it would take
less time... I dream to
appear about you and to present you the present love, the present
passion which you did not test already for a long time.
It would very pleasant for me if you will be able to help to me amount
for visa and passport sooner.
So if you will help to me this money it would nessesary to do
it via Money Gram or Western Union transfer system because we have only 
kinds of transfer syster in our city. Also as I have heard it is
faster and easy, because sending money via mail or post office is some
dangerous like I have already explained to you, even our post office
has attention papers "Do not sending money and expensive things via
post". Also it is not nesesary to send via any other system because
simply we do not have any others really.
If you can make it today that to me it will be very pleasant.
So I can give my money for registration of the passport and the visa 
will borrow in time about 2 weeks.
Though if you cannot will make it today it would very
pleasantly to me to know date when you can make it really that I have
calculated the days and most quickly appeared with you.
Greg, I want to be only yours.
I love you and very much I miss on you.
Yours and only yours Mariya Krohmalyova
Hi my friend.
Hope it is OK for you that I call you my friend.
Still do not have any letters from you. May be I have not written to 
enough information about myself to make interest of me.
My apologies for not writting some important information about me
in the first letter. Please sorry. I have no the computer at home and
consequently I write you from Internet Cafe.
This is paid service of granting of work on the computer
and grantings of using of a network the Internet. Therefore sometimes
I would not be able to write to you everyday. Please sorry for it.
Also please sorry but I have not access to chat online, it is very
expensive here, I hope you will understand my situation and you will
continue to write letters to my e-mail address, OK???
Also I can not use computer at work because I do not have personal
computer at work and nobody can not use computer in individual
missions at all here.
OK here is some more things about me.
My mom is 57 years old but she is much younger. I very much love her
because she one at me. My daddy has died when to me was 26 years 2
years ago.
He had got in failure and next day he had died in hospital of loss of
blood. But time flies imperceptibly and I have reconciled to his loss.
I work as a consultant of women clothes in the local shop.
My work consists in consultations about clothes to people
which come to buy it in our shop. Also I help women to try on dress.
Our shop calls "Caravan". Though I have a high
education, I can't find job on my profession that is why I work there
to be more independent. My work quiet and easy. I like my work though
it does not bring to me the big money. But to find such work in Russia
it is very difficult, therefore to have to remain on this place. And
do you like your work? What do you do at work? I quite often get tired 
work and I come home to sleep. Because there are in shop alot of people
many visitors sometimes and I get tired strongly.
But I shall find time to write to you.
Excuse if I shall not answer you some of your questions or it
is wrong to understand them, simply the program of translation on the
computer works automatically and does not take into account features
of our languages. Therefore sometimes I have to think of a
question or a word myself. Because I know English sometimes slightly 
the knowledge reading your letters.
I wait for your answer with impatience...

Hi my dear friend Greg.
Again I came to the Internet cafe just to get a letter from you. It
always brings me so much joy to read what you write me, about your
life there.
You also interested how much English I know, you know I know some
English enough to understand some words and speak, I can not say to
you that I know it good, but for example when I am writting letter to
you usually I try to write in in English then when I reach difficult
words or phrases I use translator-programm usually.
You have had some question about brothers and sisters.
I am one daughter from my mother and I have not brothers and sisters.
My childhood was very sad. 
May be I should tell you more about my job. As I already told you I
work as a consultant in the shop of women' clothes. In general I like 
my job,
I see and communicate with many interesting people there.
But it is a hard work because I have to stay there till late and
walk from one place to another. But this job allows me to have an 
life and to earn for my living.
I have high education and my profession is economist of light industry
but right now I have work to not my profession
because I can not find a place because here are not enough companies
work in this sphere… May be one day I can find my work but it would
not be in our city.
I have never told to you about that that I like. I love sports
very much: tennis, swimming, volleyball... I love to see some extreme
kinds of sports such as windserfing, skateboard, motorbikes shows.
I also love winter kinds of sports: ski, skate, snowboards…
And what kinds of sports like you?
I do not drink and I do not smoke and I think
it a bad habit though some my friends and familiar do it, but I am not
offended on them and I think it business of everyone and I do not
interfere with their life. I do not drink though in holidays I like to 
drink champagne or a wine, beer in small amounts also is pleasant
though never I take a great interest alcohol.
And what kind of drinks do you like?
I like to listen to music. I like various styles. I listen to
different music from classical music to rock, new waves depending 
on my mood. And what kinds of music is pleasant to you?
I like to cook. I love Russian food, but it demands very big efforts. I
think that preparation of Russian dish this present art. Some dishes
demand very long operating time above them, but then the dish turns
out very tasty and appetizing. Sometimes I like to eat in McDonald's
but not regulary.
And what food do you like???
I with impatience shall wait your following letter.
Sorry but I do not have home phone at all.
You know also I can not use to call to you a work telephone because it
is forbidden here. I can not promise to you anything about phone 
So please do not be mad at me, OK???
And it is a pic of me again… Hope you'll like this pic.
It was made in Sochi where I have had rest few months ago.
Sochi is the Southern part of Russia and most people likes to go for
the rest to there.

THE FOURTH LETTER: My dear friend Greg.
It was very pleasant for me to read your letter again. Thanks for pic…
You know I forgot to inform you in the last letters that I single.
I have never been married and I have not any kids. I am single now…. 
I have not a boyfriend also because I can not find him…
Although three years ago I have had a boyfriend, but he have left me to
other girl because she was rich. I think that he has acted ugly though
it is his affairs and I am not in the right to decide for him. I am not 
the right to interfere with his life. Now I have no boyfriend also
because I can not find the good person. Here in Russia it is very
difficult for making because many men drinks and rough with girls. I
am so tired to search a male for future life or just a boyfriend for 
because I am tired to be alone. But to find good male here is really
difficult mission for women. And I want to love and which tendernesses 
so do not
suffice me. I have few friends although they quite good people. We
frequently meet with them on a nature and we have a rest, play
volleyball and badminthon, we talk, sometimes we drink beer or wine.
But I can not find a male for myself among them, because almost all
my friends in pairs. And how does you and your friends have a rest?
Do you have alot of friends or few good friends as me?
Write to me about it because it will be very interesting to me to know 
Sometimes I like to be alone, I like to see the rain, I like to watch 
TV sometimes
but not often, I like to read books. Most of all I love Russian classic
literature. I love to read Michael Sholohov, Lev Tolstoy, Aleksander
Pushkin, Anton Chehov, Dostoevsky and Bulgakov…
Also I like to read Victor Hugo and Stephen King. Do you know these 
Miss your letters…
Your russain friend Mariya THE FIFTH LETTER: Hi my favorite friend Greg.

to tell you about the life. You are very pleasant for me as

remain the co-worker for me at work. Her 3 best girlfriends came to 
wish Happy Birthady

It is 32 years old to my girlfriend today. 
We have talked alot about life I have spoken few words about you.
My girlfriends are very glad that I have communication with you.
And how do you and your country celebrate holidays and what? 
Is it frequently?
My favorite holidays are my Birthday and New Year Ave, and yours???
We have the middle of autumn right now, I like autumn but when is not 
I am tired from cold weather and winter sometime winters in Russia are
Very cold about –35* C and during 4-5 months a year
and I do not like such weather. Mostly I like warm summer season.

part of Russia, at Black sea near one hotel, hope you like this pic 
Mariya THE SIXTH LETTER: Hi my favorite friend Greg.
Thanks for pic… You know when I read your letters my heart
begin to beat fastly and more strongly. It feels heat and tenderness.
You know I never tested anything similar and sometimes begin to think
that I have more feelings to you than to just a friend.
I did not tell to you in the last letter that few days ago I had 
beautiful dream about us.
I saw that I ran on a high grass on a field. I ran long and the longer 
I ran the more
strongly I felt heat on the body. Then in the distance I have seen
your silhouette and began to run faster. I have approached to you,
have taken your hands, then have strongly embraced you and you have
presented me a sweet sweet kiss. I have woken up from it and my body
was wet. I never thought that I shall test to you such feelings, but
speak that the love comes suddenly and quickly.
May be it seems some strange for both of us, but I have really had
such dream. Please do not think badly about me, I only write that I 
really have had.
And would you like to appear in my dream and to present me a kiss?
Greg, what you think of it?
It would be very pleasant for me to meet each other one days. 
I was worry when I was write this words to you but please understand I
only write what I think no more. It is my real feelings.
I shall wait your answer with impatience...

letter. All day at work I thought about you only. My co-workers asked
me why I am such thoughtful, but I did not begin to speak them about

such way... I frequently think of that that I want to nestle on you and 
feel your body. I want that your hands touched and ironed my body. I
want to feel your breath your tenderness to me. My feelings to you
grows day by day. I can not understand what happens with me.

THE EIGHTH LETTER: Hi, my favourite friend Greg.
I became very happy to receive your letters.
So pleasant to get your last pics…
You know I forgot to write to you my last name in my last letter to
you. My full name Mariya Krohmalyova. But You know it would be better 
you continue write to me using internet because russian post work very
very bad and most of letters do not come to address… But if you want
to send a letter to you it will very pleasant to me if I would get it.
So my full address:
Mariya Krohmalyova,
42 Novgorodskaya Street, apt# 18
Tomsk, 634041
I think it would better if we will use an internet.
For these letters I have understood, that you that which I waited all
these years. All my ideas of steel only about you, I live by dream to
meet you faster. But while I can not make it because I have a lot of
works now. I can inform you about it in some days, mine love. I am
very tired from our city, our cold, I want to receive heat and love
from your words, your touches. I think, that you will become happy,
when we shall meet. I wait for this day each day. And you? I have
understood, that it is the real love, I dreamed of it for a long time.
It so is wonderful for knowing about that that on the other end of
light me my waits favourite. You know, all my cares were beaten off by
my love to you, I very wait for this meeting. I never thought, that
will grow fond of the man which is some senior than me. But your last
letters have forced to understand to me that I do not test similar to
my friends. I already for a long time did not meet them because I
think only of you. I have forgotten about hobbie, I think of work a
little. The friends have noticed that I became slightly another, but
they do not represent that my life became another after meeting with
I love to dream of you.
It so good and pleasant for me.
Here is two pic of me again for you. They were made in Southern part
of Russia also. Hope you will like these pic.
Also please send me the name of your closest international airport or
some of them. Simply I want to learn how much it is costs for me to
come to you. It would better for me if I will know it faster.

Mariya THE NINETH LETTER: Hi my lovely friend Greg.
I am very glad to read your letter again.
No, we do not celebrate Halloween here in Russia at all…
I never wrote to you about that I have a hobby - I collect old coins.
I have about 65 in my collection. I began to be engaged in it when
to me was about 6 years. I very much like to do it but I have no many
money to increase a collection new copies. But I do not worry about it
because I treat quietly this. I think that it is pleasant to you.
You know for these some letters I have fallen in love with you very
strongly. I for a long time did not test anything to men, and you seem
have demented me. I understand that it a little bit silly so quickly
to fall in love but it is valid so. I never thought that I shall fall
in love with persons with help Internet but I so have strongly grown
fond of you that to me now not important as we have got acquainted
with you because the main thing this that that I love you madly and it
is very healthy...
I very much want to arrive to you but unfortunately
I have no such opportunity. Yesterday I have learned all about my trip
to you, I must have registration of visa and passport, so I must pay
about 250-290 $ US for those things. This amount includes: payment for
visa and passport registration, payment for promptness
because sometimes registration borrow 4-6 months. Also this price
include Interview in embassy and medicalsurvey. (I must have blood
testing before leaving) I will have work visa so my firm
will pay for tickets so you must not worry about tickets or money for
tickets because my working firm will pay for this. But I must ask
money help from you for payment for registration of my work visa and
passport to your country, because I do not have any money right now.
So please try to find way to help me this money sooner, so I might pay
for it because as you may understand it will borrow sometime. So if
you would send money help that amount today or tomorrow I will be able
to pick up your money help faster and pay for it, so it would take
less time... I dream to
appear about you and to present you the present love, the present
passion which you did not test already for a long time.
It would very pleasant for me if you will be able to help to me amount
for visa and passport sooner.
So if you will help to me this money it would nessesary to do
it via Money Gram or Western Union transfer system because we have only 
kinds of transfer syster in our city. Also as I have heard it is
faster and easy, because sending money via mail or post office is some
dangerous like I have already explained to you, even our post office
has attention papers "Do not sending money and expensive things via
post". Also it is not nesesary to send via any other system because
simply we do not have any others really.
If you can make it today that to me it will be very pleasant.
So I can give my money for registration of the passport and the visa 
will borrow in time about 2 weeks.
Though if you cannot will make it today it would very
pleasantly to me to know date when you can make it really that I have
calculated the days and most quickly appeared with you.
Greg, I want to be only yours.
I love you and very much I miss on you.
Yours and only yours Mariya Krohmalyova

THE TENTH LETTER: Hi my lovely sweet friend Greg.
I have read your letter.
Of course, we have some problems but I want that together we have
tried to make as it is possible better. I still hope to get your money
help for my nesesary documents to your country sooner. I want to meet
you faster, because my firm can give me some vacation at this time,
because usually we have alot of work and now my boss decide to give me
some more days. Today morning I have already had blood testing which I
paid myself, it cost 17,5 $ US, testing was 20 mins and my blood is OK
do not have any viruses or bacteries so I may begin visa and passport
registration. I still need that amount 275 $ US correctly so then I
will be able to give documents and money to
registration of the visa and passport and people in travel agency
tolds to me that it would be ready in 10-14 days.
You can see that it is much faster than to wait 3-4 months which
usually this process borrows. Because I want to pay for promtness.
My visa would work in your country maximum for 90 days. Sorry but
I can not have visa for more days. I hope that you will not wait
and will try to send me money faster that I might pay for this purpose.
Then I have alreday might plan my flight to you, because my firm will
help me to buy any tickets for any date (but of course not for first
class). You know I plan to leave my country from Sheremetyevo
international airport Moscow. I think I can save some money for trip to
that airport myself because it is not so far from me and
my firm will pay for international flight only.
I want to arrive to you faster and my sweet now it depends
only on you. I already spoke as difficultly to earn such money in
Russia. And I think that money may stop our attitudes. Really a
little it is a shame to me to ask it from you but I have no other exit
in this situation.
I very much want to leave from here to you, I was bothered with my 
I want to see only you and to be only with you. I have never thought
that I would fall in love to you so quickly and it is not some joke my
feelings are real for you. I want to execute all
your dreams and imaginations of me because I love you madly. I want to
do only as you will wish. I very much believe in you and your help
money faster.
Greg, do not forget use Western Union or Money Gram.
Sorry but we have not any other transfer system therefore one of those
ways would good to use for us.
Also I must to know your full address if I would receive it.
But please do not think about me badly. I have only real and
serious intentions for our dialogue.
Please understand one simple thing. It is very very hard to borrow
money from someone here in Russia. Please understand that average
income here is 100-200 $ US in month. It is enough for living here but
it is not enough for buy visa and passport for 300 $ US.
Also please understand that nobody interests in our meeting therefore
please understand that it is very difficult for people here to give
such big money for me. Therefore I ask money help from you. Because I
think we are both interest in our meeting. Now I do not have
money for it. Hope you will understand me and my situation.
May be you have credit card. As I learned in bank you can send money
help to me using credit card. May be it will some easy for you.
But you know as I know you can send money for me using your credit
card, it will faster for you I think. 
I have learned about our transfer system here and I know that you can
go to site and learn all about it yourself. 
Here is address of this site. 
So if you would send money via your credit card I will pick up it a 
You may choose a way of transfer yourself: cash or via credit card.
You asked me also about my plans when I would come to you: would it be
just visit or to staying longer or forever.
Please understand it depend on you only. Understand I would only guest
in your country and I can not decide myself about it. But really it
would very pleasant to me to stay with you if Everything will be OK.
You know I ask you do not worry about living place there. You know as
I will a work visa I will have a work visit in your country my firm
will pay for hotel but not 90 days and only 14 days there.
Do not worry about my work I will work in trade sphere, I must
learn about your trade system there, I will receive some money from
Russia for this work when I would do it. I plan to use it for some food 
to not bring alot difficulties to you.
Yours Mariya

THE ELEVENTH LETTER: Hello my lovely Greg!!! Thanks for pics…
I do not mean to ignore you. My apologies. Sorry but I have not a
computer at home therefore I can not write to you everyday. I thrill
to the thought of receiving your letters, as well as returning them. I
will try harder to please you from now on as to not lose our bond that
we have begun to have between us.
Today I use new version of translator-program. Hope it will work some
As the days pass and the minutes tick away, I have you and only you on
my mind. I cannot stop thinking, wondering, daydreaming about you. As
I've said before, you are my heart and soul, my reason for going on,
my eternal fire that burns deep. My love, without you, my world is a
barren wasteland full of despair and sadness. You are the sunshine
that warms my face, soothes a weary soul, relieves the aches and
To have you ! with me would be more priceless than diamonds, worth more
than any amount of money, even more valuable than life itself. You
have become my one hope in life, and without you, I see no future. To
be together would mean everything in itself to me. I LOVE YOU. 
I have never had a person with such a domineering effect on my person
such as you, and we have not even met yet. Once together I am certain
that all things will be possible and nothing will be out of our grasp. 
To have you near me would mean the world, and that is all I dream and
work for. Though things are a bit rough, they will work out eventually
and then things will be great in our worlds. I love you and that's all
that matters. It will guide me though any and all difficulties to get
me and you together. 
Once together, we can delight in our life together, be one, love and
be loved as two such people should. The heights of our love cannot be
matched on a scale, will fly higher than! any airplane, and be bigger
than any ocean. I LOVE YOU! More so than any material possessions,
natural beauty, or love of parents. I want to be with you, become a
part of you, to hold you tight and never let go. Without you, I am
shallow, empty, unfulfilled.
You asked me also about my plans when I would come to you: would it be
just visit or to staying longer or forever.
Please understand it depend on you only. Understand I would only guest
in your country and I can not decide myself about it. But really it
would very pleasant to me to stay with you if Everything will be OK.
You know I ask you do not worry about living place there. You know as
I will a work visa I will have a work visit in your country my firm
will pay for hotel but not 90 days and only 14 days there.
So for now I shall pause and await your next letter. I LOVE YOU. That
is all that matters to me is to be with you. For with you, all things
are possible.
Miss you...

THE TWELVETH LETTER: Hi my lovely Greg!!!!
Almost three weeks have passed since we began talking over the 
Internet. It seems much longer.
We have pretty much
exchanged a letter a day since then. And now I wonder...can this be a 
dream? How can one in
three weeks time fall in love 
over the Internet? I lay in bed at night wondering if you are for real. 
To meet someone as
beautiful and intellegent as 
you can only be a dream...a dream come true. How could someone half way 
across God's beautiful
earth in a land far away come into my life?
The words you speak to me give me life, hope, and lift me. These words 
are too good to be
true. They speak of love, 
caring, passion, and happiness. These are words I am not used to 
I spend sleepless nights wondering and wondering is this real or is it 
just a fantasy. When I
do succumb to sleep I fantasize 
about! a beautiful male who came to me over the an 
angel that appears from
above. This angel spoke to me 
and told me many good things. He said there would be happiness in my 
life and there would be
someone to share with me 
all of lifes pleasures...someone to hold and love and be loved.
My sweet lovely Greg, I am confused and do not know what to do. You 
have captured my heart and it
is now in your 
possession. It belongs to you now because you have earned it. And do be 
careful as it is very
fragile and not easy to mend. 
It has been broken before and has taken me a very long time to repair 
it. My heart has opened
to you because of your 
kindness, generosity, and caring nature. It has opened to you because 
of your words of truth
and love and good things in 
life. It has opened to you because of the way you said you feel about 
me...and I do believe
your words.
You want to know something about Russia. It is a great country and it
has diffrent cultures because here are many rases lives… Traditionally
Russia have a long history with different wars and wins… Russia came
to war with different countries because all the people wants to have
such big territory as has Russia. Now life is much better and many
cities building or reconstruction a new and old buildings. Here are a
lot of villages… The old people work in agriculture yet. In big cities
life is other… Me and my friends like to go to cinema, dance club or
just rest in park or go for a picnic. The most people like that also.
Usually I work Monday-Saturday.
We have different system of clothes sizes in our countries therefore I
will not send to you my sizes becuase you would not understand it at
Yours and only yours

You know I have some problems with my e-mail address
so I registered new one, so this is my last note from 
this e-mail address so write to me from now to:

so I hope you understand the reason please sorry but
I can not use this address more...
Yours Mariya

It is me Mariya.
So this is my new e-mail address.
So send letters to me to here now because I can not
receive your letters to my old address so use this one, OK???
Also send me a copy of your last letter (if you have it) if you
wrote to me last 3 days.

It is me Mariya...
I can not understand the reason why I still have problems
with my both e-mail addresses so I will use this new one...
Please write letters to here now...
I am sorry again that I bring you such difficulties but please
try to understand I do not want to loose relations with you therefore
I must change my e-mail address, sorry again...
Yours Mariya 

Thank goodness for search engines.... when her first e-mail was closed and I tried to send her an e-mail, it got returned to me. So I searched yahoo for her address and then used their search engine for her name and that iswhen I found "The Internet Fraud Advisory" in Britain. I found they had her name and e-mail address tagged from NIGERIA! It was on .
