Feedback about Russian Brides Cyber Guide's Black List

Thanks for your help on this site! I had decided early on that I would be happy to correspond with her so long as there were no requests for money. When the last letter finally arrived this morning, I knew something was up. 
Thanks for assuring me that this was a scam after all.


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.


I did some more digging and found this website which made my decision a no brainer. I replied back to her with an article that I found about scammers being arrested in Russia. I haven't heard back from her since. She's good...almost got me to go "all in"... Thank you to this website and whoever started it!

Anna Strach (Divnogorsk, Russia)

I am 32 a father of four girls and divorced I got a reply from on Januauy 9. Listed below is Anna letters and pictures.


January 9
Hello, its me again!! I just wanted to tell you hi!!
I decided to send you more photos, I hope you will like it.
I love russian nature very much, so my favorite photos are with
camomile and birch. Also you could see photo with my best friend,
we studed in university together. And the last photo is near monument
of famous russian singer - Vladimir Visotskiy and his wife.
I also want to see your different photos!
I will write you long e-mail about everything later! Kisses, Anna

January 10
Eric hello! Thank's for your reply so much!!! I hope soon I will be 
able to
come to your area and we will meet each other! 
This time I will write you more about myself. I think you should know
more about my life and my hobbies so you will know if we have any
common interests.
First of all my full name is Anna Trach. I'm 25 years old, not too 
young I
think? My birthday is February 1. I'm 168 cm tall (5.6.) and 51 kg
weight. I don't know exactly my bust-waist-hips measurements, I
don't have a reason to measure it because I think it's OK and my body
is proportionate )) I take care of my body, I do aerobics three times
a week and I go to the swimming pool twice a week.
I have a younger brother he is 13 years old, he studies in Military 
I love him very much, he is very brave and kind.
We all (me, my brother and my parents) live in two-rooms flat.
As I wrote you I live in Russia. The name of my city is Divnogorsk,
it's near Krasnoyarsk city. Divnogorsk is very small and Krasnoyarsk is 
large city, the main city in our district.
I graduated from Krasnoyarsk Humanitarian University two years ago,
contemporary dance faculty. Yes we have such faculty in Humanitarian
University! So I'm a professional dancer. I don't want to have a
dancer's career because I will have not much time for my private life
and for relationship with a man. I work as a dance teacher, I teach
children from 12 to 17 years how to dance! Also I have a certificate
of aerobics instructor, this is my another hobby. So it would be
perfect if later I will find a work as instructor or teacher of
dances!!! I think it's a very good job for a woman, I'm always in a
good shape and I keep myself not that busy!
Do you know how to dance? If not I can teach you!
When I come to your city I will work as a waitress in a restaurant. I 
would like to work as a
dance teacher but I think you understand it's not possible to arrange
such work by Internet because they want to see how well I dance.
Anyway I will try to find such work when I come over there.
I'm sending few photos for you today! I hope you are not tired to look
at my photos? I like skiing very much, so you could see photos me and
my brother skiing. Also you can see a photo of me, my brother and my 
Everybody told us that I look like her. The last photo is my brother
in his military school form.
My father is 61 years old now, my mom is 49. You see my mom
is much younger then my father and they are very happy together. My
mother is a teacher of music in the school. That's why I have another
hobby - music! I finished music school.
So this is another way to have a work - I can be music teacher.
I like classic music, jazz, rock, lounge. I like all kinds of music!
A little about my father: he is in a good shape because we usually make 
together, he doesn`t work now, because he is retired already.
I love both my parents and I'm happy my parents will be not alone when 
leave them and will go to another country. Of course I will miss 
everybody but I
want to have my own happiness!
I want to try how to ride a motorcycle someday! I've never tried it!
Do you have an International Airport in your city? Please write me
it's name an code. Or write me the name of the nearest Airport to you.
I write you my emails from Internet cafe, I don't have my own computer.
If you want I can call you when I will be in Moscow, it would be nice 
talk to you. We don't have international calls here. I suppose in few 
I will fly to Moscow and start my trip! Today I will tell my parents 
about you,
I'm sure they will be happy that someone is waiting for me over there!
There is no any messenger in this Cafe so we can only keep emailing
each other. I hope you are not getting bored to read my emails?
My address here is Russia, Divnogorsk, Lenina 10 street, flat 17.
So now you have a representation of who I am....
I just can tell you that I enjoy life and I try to live to the
fullest, I like to try new things. I'm not that smart.. I was not that
good in mathematics, physics, biology and so on! I don't like to be
smart! But I'm very tender, caring, artistic, faithful, decent person.
Sometimes I can be not well organized, I think everybody had it's own
minuses and pluses.
I don't look any special qualities in a man. I just hope he will be
faithful to me and ready to create a happy family with me and I will
do everything to make him happy. I'm looking for a soulmate!

OK... it's time to finish my email. I'm sending a kiss by the wind to
you and if I sent it to the right destination you should receive it by
evening )))) I hope you will catch my kiss somehow )))



January 11
I just want to add few things... I think last time I wrote you not all
my thoughts... My mind is always in a mess when I write you because
it's hard to write everything to somebody who is so far away. I don't
remember if I wrote last time I've never been married, don't have
kids but I love them and they love me! I wrote you I teach children
how to dance and I know how to understand their wishes and worries.
I don't smoke, drink occasionally.
And I want to tell you that I always wanted to find an older man.
Why? I have two answers..
Firstly, I think older men are much more serious and they can take
care of me, they are more experienced in life and can teach me many
things. Have you heard a saying "The older the violin, the sweeter the
music"? I believe in it... I think I'm not that young already but I
don't have much experience in life and I want to have someone who has
more experience in life then me.
Secondly... maybe I'm not right about it... but I want to be honest
I've always had such worry... if I marry a man nearly my age...
and after some years I will become not that young and beautiful... I
think it's more hard for a woman to be attractive then for a man...
and he will find a younger mistress and I will become very miserable.
I don't want my man to be unfaithful. I know I can be faithful to my
man and I will never cheat on him.
But this is just my worries. This is not my goal. Please tell me if
you think you will love your woman at any age and not find a younger
one? Can you be faithful?
Also I want to tell you that I learned english in university, so I 
use any translators, and I can speak english as good as I write on it.
I hope we will have no problems in communications. I feel that 
you are very nice man I really want to meet you. If you will not like 
me or something else we can be just friends.
I hope I will get my work visa soon in Moscow and all documents and I
come to you! I don't have any area limits with this visa so I can work
where I want. I don`t know exact day of my arrival, but as soon as I 
know – I will write it to you.
And one more thing.. i'm sending a few pics of my city.
You will see a river Enisey, did you heard about it? It is very big
and beautiful. My city Divnogorsk is situated on this river.
Also I send you my photos skating with friend.
I'm just trying to be honest with you and write you all my thoughts on
different issues. Please be always honest with me also....
I will write you later, I will look if I have more nice photos to send
Have a good day!

January 12
Eric hello! It's good to write you again! I think I'm a lucky girl to 
meet such
good mas as you in Internet! I hope I will be lucky enough to meet you
in the real life!!!!!!!! Also I like your photo very much! You look 
Yesterday I told my parents about you. They said that now they don`t 
worry about me as before because now they know you are a kind man
and can help me if I will need your help. You can show me your city and
tell me about the life over there!
I think I didn't write you I like cooking. I will cook Russian
cuisine for you! Pelmeni, vareniki, blini, borsch, okroshka! You will
like it! Besides Russian cuisine I like Italian and Mexican. I love
spaghetti and pizzza!!!!! mmmmmmm ! I can't live without it! I like
Mexican food because it's very spicy, although I don't cook Mexican
dishes too often. I've been told my cooking is very tasty!
I like to cook cakes. My favorite is cheese-cake with raspberry! You
know... when I talk about food I'm getting hungry ))) I eat everything
and I'm not on any diets but usually I don't eat after 7 pm. This
helps me not to be fat!
I can cook many tasty things for you when we will meet! You know.. 
all Russian men are like bears! They are so rude, they can't be nice
and polite, they don't want to have a family. I think you are not like
I like to go to the cinema! I really like to watch a good movie with
my friends. 50 percents of movies in our cinemas are Russian and about 
American. Yesterday I've seen a great historical movie!!! It is called 
"Nomad". I
really liked it so much! It was produced by Khazakhfilm (Khazakhstan
is situated near Russia) and there you can see some good American 
actors! One of directors
of this movie is a well known Russian director Sergey Bodrov. If you
didn't see this movie find it and watch! I advice it to you!
Actually my favorite actor is Johnny Depp and I like all movies with
him. I've watched Pirates of the Carribean (part 2) some time ago! I
think the second part is not as good as the first part. Have you
seen it?
Could you recommend me any American movie so I can watch it?
What is your favorite movie and actor?
Soooooooooooooooo......... what else could I say?
I have a driver's licence but I don't have a car. My father has a
Russian car and he gives me his car sometimes.
I don`t like only cinema! I like theatre and opera too, I like ballet.
Unfortunately there is only one small theatre in my city and there is
nothing interesting. If I want to go to ballet, for example, I should
go to Krasnoyarsk, there sometimes can come famous Russian actors and
dancers but I can't go there often because it's quite expensive.
By, the way, one thing else about my trip. Agency will help me to rent 
a room
to stay near my future work. I will share this room with a few girls 
it is usual procedure and it helps to pay the rent (it will be 
cheaper).And I have a question,
is it normal if we will like each other may be it is possible to live 
together?of course if you 
or somebody doesn't mind.
As you know I will stay there for three months but If I will like there 
I will be able to prolong my trip.
I think I will be able to improve my english and you can learn Russian 
and I think 
it will help us to learn each other better,who knows.Do you have a big 
wide bed?(joke).
And now I have some good news for you! After sending this email I will 
go home, take my
packed bags and go to Krasnoyarsk! From there I will fly to Moscow! I`m 
really afraid to
fly on a plane! I hope my plane will not fall down! I'm really afraid! 
It is several hours from Krasnoyarsk to Moscow.
When I come to Moscow and settle down I will write you an email. I
hope today I will be able to write you. Please don't worry about me
if you don't hear from me today, that will mean I was not able to
find a place to stay and I will write you tomorrow. 
In Moscow I will spend a week or maybe even more, I should make all
final arrangements with my documents and after it I will come to you!
I've never been to Moscow before and I'm so nervous now... I've never
went somewhere alone and now I should go alone to such big city!
I really want to talk to you by phone, but as I don`t have a mobile
phone, I will find a public phone in moscow with international calls.
You know... I had such great desire to start my trip already.. and now
I feel myself like a newborn kitten who has even didn't open it's
eyes... I just want to hug my mommy and don't want to go anywhere...
but I know that's my dream to start a new life and I will try to turn
in to reality! Soon you will hear some news from me from
I`m sending you some photos of me on a Black sea on russian resort
Sochi. I`m sure you will like it!!!

Love and kisses!
I hope I'm the one for you!


January 13
Hello!!! I'm so excited to write you again!!!!!!!!!! I'm in Moscow! You 
imagine how happy I am because I already started my trip to you!
I still cannot believe I've done it! WoW! As I wrote you I was scared
to fly on the plane but everything was OK and I'm still alive ))))
Moscow is a really big city! I've been told the population of Moscow
is about 10 million of people! From the Airport I went by bus... it
was so long way... about 1 hour and 30 minutes. I've seen so many nice
places in Moscow while going by bus!
When I got off the plane in the Moscow Airport policeman asked me 
passport and he looked at me like I am an enemy )))
I think all people here are a little crazy because of terrorism.
Everything here is very expensive, not like in my city... and
everywhere are big crowds of people! Everywhere is so many people! I 
uncomfortable because of it but I hope I will be OK soon. 
I found a place to stay, I rent a room from an old woman. She is about
70 years old. She said her husband died 2 years ago and she 
doesn`t have money to live, so she give in rent rooms in her 
She is very nice woman. She said I have to be very careful. 
You know... she said many girls from small
cities come to big cities, they are looking for a
better future and fortune but because they are from small cities they
can`t imagine that their way to find the happiness can be not so easy 
as they
thought... and some of them can end up as prostitutes or something
like that. She said I should be careful when I will meet you!! But I 
worry about you! I feel with all my heart you are really nice man! 
Sorry I wrote you about my worries.. I have nobody to write about it.
My parents and my sisters are worried enough about me and I don't want
to make them to worry more. I think that's really good I've met you! I
can write you about everything.
I miss my parents... but I'm getting better with every hour ))
I made pic for you here, so I will send it to you next time. Now
I'm very hungry and I will go and eat something.
I`m sending for you some photos of moscow that I found in internet.
Please confirm the name of airport and be sure you wrote it right.
I am afraid to make any mistake... I hope everything will be fine.
please write me as soon as possible!See you soon! Great kiss from 


January 14
Hello!!! How are you? Today I had a wonderful dream, that we
finally meet, I feel myself like the happiest girl in the world!!!
In Moscow its very warm weather for Jan, about +1`C, but I feel myself 
so alone.
Everyone rush somewhere and I don`t know anybody here.
Today I was in a travel agency, all my documents are ready.
Now they are checking a possible flight to your airport.
I manager in travel agency asked me to make a copy of my passport ,
so I decided to send a copy for you also.
Tomorrow I will go to travel agency again and they will give me a
shedule of my flight (date and time of my arrival, terminal etc.).
Now I will continue to see moscow, like a tourist.
In Moscow there are so many different museums! I will go
to The State Tretyakov Gallery (The National Museum of Russian Fine
Art).It is not far from the Kremlin, there should be a lot of tourists 
from all
over the world. I read about this gallery before, its collection 
near 130 000 works of painting, sculpture and graphics. It should be 
amazing!!! Ok, honey, tomorrow I will receive all info about my
flight I will send you an e-mail, ok? 
Also I made yesterday a photo here in moscow and printed it today, so
I hope you will like it!!!! I kiss you many times, your Anna

January 15
Eric hello,Glad to say that I am all right. You know I am in Moscow now 
and I think I have made
almost the half of my trip. To be fair I am tired,everything is not so 
easy like I thought. It is hard
enough business because of so many barriers on this way. I want you to 
know that you can't
imagine how glad I am to know that you want to meet me,it helps me to 
be strong.
Well,about my news.
I was in travel agency today, nearest possible flight is Saturday, 
January 20, 2007.
Is this date is ok for you to meet me? I made my flight to airport, 
that you gave me.
I will receive a schedule of my flight today later or tomorrow and I 
will write you it.
It will be no straight flight to your airport from Moscow, so I will 
to change planes, so that is why they can`t give me exact schedule now.
I am so glad to see that we are almost near our goal,and our meeting 
wait for us. I think I will call
you from airport before my flight. You know I booked tickets on 
Saturday flight and I will buy them before my interview.
People from embassy must be sure that I am not going to stay illegally, 
so I need to buy roundtrip tickets 
(with returning date). The cost of roundtrip ticket is 1300 dollars.
You know, that all my documents are ready and now I just need to buy 
I wanted to ask you about electronic tickets but they tell that
I can't use because it is their business to arrange all travel details 
and they have some extra money from all the things,
you see it is just business.I think that you will be able to help me 
because I don't know anybody here and only you are 
my hope now,I think everything in your hands and I believe that you 
will not leave me here alone.please borrow some money.
I am sure I will be able to return all your money back after a few 
weeks,I will get salary and I will collect the sum I own from you.
To be fair I am not sure I know what to say because I hate to ask but 
now I have no different way, you see.
Please help me it is only money and much more important if we will 
meet in person I will do my best, you won`t be disappoined.
I see that it sounds a little crazy but I can't believe that in the 
worst case I have to return home,they all will 
laugh at me.I think it rests with you to decide and I feel that 
you will help me because you are kind.
I have about 300 US dollars yet and I think I need about 1000 US
dollars from your side with all travel needs and living here till my 
(I had 1200 dollars, but flight from Krasnoyarsk, opening visa and all 
travel needs costed about 900 dollars).
For truth I didn`t expect I will need to buy roundtrip tickets, but now 
I see that its a very strict rule.
If everything will be all right between us I can stay with you longer 
than three months,maximum I can stay about 6 months for
first time! We should change only the date of my returning flight.and 
if you won't like me I will live in rent room and won't bother you 
and money is money I will return it back in any case.I so much hope 
that you will help me .My parents gave me all they had.
Thank you in advance.maybe i look like the poor outsider but I do hope 
you understand my position because it is always there is anybody 
who needs the help.
I will call you from airport and I will wait for you there as
long as you need,I mean if you need any time to arrive in is 
not problem for me to wait because I know that it is the end of
my trip and I have time to improve my condition(some perfume)after long 
journey. I want you to see me in good shape!
Kiss you and do hope to kiss you in person so soon. We need to do it 
pretty fast,you know I ordered all my documents in advance and 
you see everything is ready so fast I need only your help because 
we have no a lot of time till my interview,
if everything will be all right I will be on this flight!
I talked with manager in travel agency and he told me that you could
make a transfer by Western Union. You know that I don`t have bank
account and travel agency accept just cash.

mardi 2 mai 2006 14:35:59
Hello, it is Yulia. Thank you for appreciating my profile. May be I should tell
you about myself to start with. I live in Kazan, Russia. I am feminine, intelligent, joyful and optimistic. I believe that friendship is very important for the relationship. I am really open minded, very sociable and cheerful person; I
appreciate sincerity, naturalness and kindness. I like very much to make my home warm and cozy, to lavish care upon my close people and friends. My parents raised me in a marvelous atmosphere of love, warmth, and kind humor. By the way, the sense of humor helped me out more than once in the most difficult moments.
Frankly speaking, I am not used to give way to despair. Nothing else but a sense of humor and optimism saves me in difficult minutes. I think that it is not the best thing to remember all troubles, it is much more useful to learn a lesson for the future. I enjoy nature in all its manifestations: fresh air in the
mornings, sweet scent of flowers or tart smell of needles, warm caressing sea
and bright sun or even rain.
I am going in for sport in order to keep myself in good physical health. I like
to see people healthy and happy. As I said before, humor ranks the particular place in my life. Generally speaking humor is the great thing! You see that with the help of felicitous joke it's possible to take the strain off the situation.
Or to cheer up when it is sorrowfully in your soul. I try always to take the life
optimistically, never to despond and to be glad of every lived day. I try to find only positive sides in everything. I consider all troubles as a lesson that life gives to us to make us wiser. My family is my Mom, dad and two brothers; one of them is already married and has children of his own. The other is not married but he lives with his girlfriend and they have a one-year-old baby. I love children
very much and my nice and nephew are really cute, I adore them. Now I work as a journalist, I specialize on ecological problems. I travel over all over the world as I have a special passion to traveling and my work gives an excellent opportunity to do it as I have a green card to most of the countries. I have Master’s degree in Journalism. I like music very much. I have a musical background, so I sing and play the piano a little. I like nature and traveling and I like to take pictures of everything beautiful. I am right on my feet, many people say that I possess a charm and fascination, a great sense of humor and an ability to forgive. 
Now I am determined to fulfill my dreams (at least the most important one -
Family). I dream to create a happy, strong and friendly family. I will be able to lavish warmth, care and love upon my home. Passing through short duration of life I have understood how important a family is for a person. How important is
when there is a person near you, who has the same feelings and shares your views on life. I miss greatly a close person who dreams that someone takes care of him, loves him and respect him.
I think I am a happy person with established personality, but I lack my only
man, my beloved one. I would very much like to meet him, I would support him in everything, give him the warmth and tenderness of my heart, and I would care about his health and appearance. We would create a strong and united family
together. The family, which based on mutual love, respect and trust. I was
married before but I divorced after three months of being married. I was only 18 when I married a man who was older than me. The reason for our divorce was his lie and treachery. He was still having relations with his ex-girlfriend. He was my big mistake but I hope I’ll be happy without him. Every person in this world
deserves to be happy.
What do you think? I hope to hear from you soon.
I have so much to tell you. That’s why I’m looking forward to your letter.

mercredi 10 mai 2006 14:22:08
Hello dear Julien, It is Yulia,
Thanks a lot for your dear letter and wonderful pictures, you are a very
handsome man. I would like to know more about you.
I'm looking for serious relations and for marriage in future. I
hope that you and I will get along great. I have a really good
feeling about you. You may be the special "one" that I have been
searching for. I hope so.
I would like to find someone to share my life and love with. I
would like to find a companion, friend, lover and life partner
in one, I'll give that person all that he needs, most importantly,
I'll give myself. I consider myself very romantic and affectionate,
I'm in search of true, lasting love.
Russian men have lost the true meaning of love and family values.
I don't want ever to divorce, I want to be happy with one person.
It's so wonderful to dine together, to watch romantic movies, I
like to travel very much and never miss a chance to do it, thanks to my job, I
have the opportunity to do it.,
I like to discuss music... It's all sounds so fantastic, Russian men never
think of such things but in my opinion it's necessary to share all your
life with the person you love, it's the main thing in love, if you do it
there won't be anything to quarrel about. I find that happiness comes from
within just as much as it does from other people. In life we have no enemies,
no friends, only teachers. IF we delight in what someone can give to us than
we have a much happier life. The age and the place of your living matter
nothing for me . The most important thing is you as a person. What I can
tell you about myself is that I find myself a good-looking girl with a good
sense of humor, romantic, affectionate, joyful and tender. I devote most of my
time to my job, I simply do not have other things to do here. My parents live in
another town, not very far from Kazan, so I'm alone here, except
my friends, of course. I live in the hostel with two girls of our newspaper, one
of them is a journalist, the other is a designer. I do different kinds of
sport, like swimming, jugging,
bicycling, I play Tennis, do aerobics and choreography to keep fit. I'm
looking for a man with a good sense of humor who will be near me in my hard

Yulia samedi 27 mai 2006 09:50:43

Hi, dear Julien,
It is Yulia again. I want to thank you for letter, I really enjoyed it and now
it seems to me that we are becoming closer to each other. I liked what you told
me but I need to know one thing. I hope you are not playing games because I will continue our correspondence only if it can lead to something.
I hope that you are looking for serious relations. I do…
What I can tell you about my dreams? Well… I want to find someone that would sit in a blanket and watch the sunset, to have snowball fights with, someone that I could call to cheer me up when I have a bad day but also someone that would call me to cheer him up, I would like to woke up next to a man I love, and gave my whole self to. I want someone that would stay with me through the good and bad, through the beautiful and ugly of our life together. Someone that I can look at him in a loving way and read poems to.
You know, I have a very artistic nature, and a lot of things attract my
attention. I also study English very hard, because I want to find a man from
another country, I'm very good at English and I write all my letters myself. I'm
sure there won't be problems with understanding when we meet in future.
Speaking about my likes and dislikes it seems to me that I don't have any
dislikes, I like everything in this world: but I don't like to communicate with
the stupid person who thinks too much of himself and most of Russian men are
just of this kind, I don't like lie and treachery. I like poetry, good music,
dancing, walking in the rain and at night, I like to learn new things, to cook
tasty meal and most of all I like to travel, to see new places to meet people
and make new friends. I like to go to the bars with my friends, to swim in the
pool, to ski and to skate, to play with children, to take care of the garden.
I hope I will be lucky and you will become a special man in my life, I hope that
will lead to something. I really hope for that. Tell me what you think about it.

vendredi 2 juin 2006 10:32:49Hello, dear Julien,
I ma sorry i couldn't write earlier, i had to go to Kazakhstan on business and
it was not a planned trip so i just couldn't let
you know that I am leaving. I came back today's morning and at once went to the Internet cafe to send you my letter. Thank you for your dear words. I
can't believe but we really have so much in common. I see that you are well
educated and that you are very tender towards me, I liked all these things, they are important for me in looking for my second half. I also spent a lot of time on my study and there were a lot of subjects I'm good at. My birthday is
April’18, 1980 Besides my work my hobby is dancing, I used to be a good dancer 5 years ago but now I'm too busy with my study. I'm
fond of cooking and sports. My favorite kind of sport is Tennis and I go to the
swimming-pool every Sunday. I also like to go to the Disco and to the Clubs and I'm fond of playing pull ( billiard ). I used to be the aerobic instructor and I did many exercises but now I don't have enough time for that. I like different
food but most of all I like the Chinese and Mexican food, and the sea food (I adore it). I'm very good at cooking myself. I like different kinds of music,
especially the classic and also the Russian music, from Western music I like
Roxette, Ricky Martin, Whitney Houston, and Shania Twain, I like her sweet love songs. My favorite song is Lionel Ritchie "Hello, is it me you're looking for".
My favorite colors are light blue and light purple, sometimes I like green and
gray. I can’t live without books. I will never fall asleep without reading before it. May be you know a famous Russian book “Master and Margarita” by Bulgakov? I adore it. This one is my favorite. I also like poetry by Akhmatova and Tsvetaeva. That seems about all about me and I would like to know the same things about you. That's all for now, it's just a short message to let you know I'm thinking about you. I'm looking forward to your answer, I'll write to you later.

lundi 5 juin 2006 12:34:20
My dear Julien,
Thank you for your sweet letter, I feel like you became very close to me. I
liked the manner you write your letter in.
I do not have a trip to France planned but I was there before twice. I can come
there any time as i do not need a Visa, as soon as I am able to afford my trip
to you, I will come for a meeting.
You know, I read the poem recently and I think we have something alike in our
relations, what do you think?

Love Story

We knew each other before,
I cannot tell:
I didn't know where or when,
but I know I loved you well.

I recognized your face
on the day we met,
for we'd shared the kind of love,
a heart could never forget

Though I knew not how
a distant memory stirred in me,
and I could clearly see
that we are meant to be.

I hope one day we will meet each other. Have you ever been to Russia? I'm sure
you will like it. As for me it's my dream to see the world and I try to travel
as often as possible. 
I want to tell you about Russia. I live in Kazan now but I was born in another
place, I was born in the Mari El republic, it is a very beautiful place!!! My
parents still live there and I try to visit them as often as possible, besides
we have a summer cottage there and we live there every summer. Mari El is only two hours away from Kazan if you go by car. This republic
it's very small and it is not marked on some maps. But you
cam find it knowing that it's right in the middle between Kirov, Kazan
and Nizhni Novgorod. Russia is divided into Republics and regions. I
live in Mari El republic. Find on the map the blue ribbon denoting
Volga river. In its central reaches, on the left-hand bank you can
find Yoshkar-Ola, the capital of Mari El republic. Mari El is situated
in the eastern part of the East Europe Plain in the basin of the
middle flow of the Volga river. Mari El borders on the Nizhnegorodsy
Region in the west, on the Kirov Region in the north, on Kazan in the
south-west and on Cheboksary in the south. Our town is with the
population of about 280 000 people. Do you like camping? I adore camping!!! May be we could do it together one day when you come there to meet my family? I used to do it every summer, I went to the special camp where we went to the forest and stayed there for several days. I'm very good at cooking on the fire so we won't be hungry:-))) My parents went on camping together when they were young, I think it's very romantic, when there are no people around you, just me and my beloved one I want to try it. We have a lot of forests around and if one day you come to visit me we could do camping, I will show you all our beautiful places.
We have a lot of berries and mushrooms to eat, I'm sure you will like fried
mushrooms and tea with berries.'We also have a lot of animals like hares,
foxes, wolfs and bears. But they are not dangerous, the dangerous ones are deep in the forest and they never come up to people. In our forests we have many
lakes with purest water where we will be able to swim, I like to play in the
water, do you? I would tackle you under the water and you would
Our nature is very beautiful, Our air is very clean and fresh all the time. I'm
sure you would like it here.
Latter I will tell you a lot of interesting things about our town and our
history. If you want to know something special about Russia I can tell you about
it, just ask me.
Please, ask me more questions, I want you to know everything about me.

mardi 13 juin 2006 14:52:47
Hello, dear Julien,
As always you made me very happy with your letter. I'm very glad you wrote to
me, I still can't believe I found you, when I get your letters I feel wonderful!
I understand such things need a lot of time and I'm patient , but I'm dreaming
of the day when we meet, I imagine it very often and I'm sure I will feel like a
I'm so happy I found you in this crazy world, it doesn't matter to me that you
live in a far away country, I feel that you are very close to me, to my heart,
to be more exact. You every day bring me happiness and hope for better days, I
cannot describe myself now, how I feel for you, there is no words that a person
can say. I thank God every day and I pray because I know that I have you in my
life. Every day I feel more and more secure, with power, strength to face my
destiny. I know for somehow that you are made for me. I'd like to have you
always in my side, I'd like to love you every day of my life, to see you in my
every morning, to tell you one day looking into your eyes and telling that you
are my only one and how much I feel for you. And if we are together I will give
you the best of me. And with all the distance a part of us I want to tell you
that I never felt before a love for a person like I feel for you. Everything is
different also my friends at work say -Are in love! I say may be! He is the most
wonderful person that I ever met. They always ask why you choose a man from
abroad that is so far way from you? I say, Well this was God that put him in the
path of my life.
Well my dear, I do not want to bother you with these thoughts of mine which you
can find foolish and too sentimental. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

jeudi 22 juin 2006 10:14:13

My dear Julien, When I got to the Internet Cafe and saw your email I felt like a
young girl talking to her first boyfriend. I have butterflies because I am
totally taken with YOU....
I must tell you that I never play games and I want you to know that I have never
been more serious in my life before. My search for true
love is a fire in my soul that I cannot quench. I will seek till I find such a
love to explore the deeps of. You seem to match my hearts longings.

When I first saw you I said, it is to good to be true and he has probably found
someone by now, because
you are perfect in my eyes and how could I be so fortunate to find such a man. I
am so happy to get your letters I sometimes have a hard time sleeping.....

I am very serious about knowing you only! I want our correspondence to lead to
the life we both long for. Full of love and happiness together. I would fly to
the ends of the earth to be with my beloved one. I know there are allot of
people out their, who do play games and are not capable of following through. I
am not one of these people.

I am very reliable and have a sound mind. I want and need someone to share our
love for life and the beauty of the deeps of love that are just waiting to be
found in both of our souls.

I am just an average nice woman who seeks an average handsome man to live
happily ever after.... I am not perfect and I
don't expect my beloved to be perfect in my mind. But we will see each others
faults and help each other to grow and work
through them because of our deep love for each other and the rewards of a
lasting love.

I know you may think "is Yulia for real". I am real and a very special woman for
you and you only if you want me. I need you
for romantic walks on the beach and cuddling in a blanket and watching the
shooting stars on a dark night.
Your happiness is my joy in life. The beauty of love is too deep to see alone.
It takes two beloved
people who want to press each other into the wonderful deeps of love. If a
person can't see this he will never experience
this type of love. I see and long for my beloved husband to experience this type
of love together till death do we part.

My dear Julien, I want our correspondence to lead to our wonderful marriage
together. This is my heart. And I am afraid if I don't tell you this, I may miss
my shooting star.

I want to tell you that you have already helped me by your letters. I have gone
through the hardest time
in my life of being alone. There is no reason why it happens, but through death
life! I will not stop dreaming of the love I want to experience I am a person
who never gives up. I see the same qualities in you.

I see our fate is to be together. I hope this does not scare you. I have never
regretted making fast decisions because
when YOU KNOW what you are looking for, in my experience you need to grab it or
you will miss the window of opportunity. So I need to tell you my heart and not
hold back. This is what you would want with your
beloved woman. Not holding back the love for you and for experiencing of the
deeps of life together.

Hope you see what I am seeing, because it’s so wonderful!

Please, write a longer letter when you can.

Can't wait for your next letter.

jeudi 29 juin 2006 10:32:40
Dear Julien,
I was so touched by your letter, it touched my heart, it was so pleasant for me
to read that you consider
me to be very special for you. I fell just the same , I know that there is a
person in this world who thinks
about me, who cares of me and who love me. When I wake up in the morning I
remember you and I smile,
thoughts about you make my days wonderful. I printed of your pictures , I will
print it and put it
in the frame on my table. I want to see your eyes and smile every moment in my
life, I want to meet your
eyes when I wake up and tell you "Good morning :-))) Have a good day! " , I
want to go to bed thinking
about you and I will be able to tell you about my day and say "Good night!"
My dear, here is one more little poem for you. By the way, do you know a ballet
"Swan Lake" by Tchaikovsky?
I have a good idea about it, I will let you know later about it. I did not tell
you before, but I'm very
fond of poetry and sometimes I write poems, when I have inspiration. here is one
devoted especially for you.

I'll love you, And I need you so much.
I 'll live to see your smile,
To hear your voice,
To feel your touch,
I'll love you more than the sun...
And the sky
I'll love you more than the earth
And the stars… Where I find happiness...
You’ll never be far.
You are a blessing,
Truly heaven sent.
You’ve made my life full,
My soul content
And every day
I’ll give my heart for you, and
it’s not hard to do…
When there is someone like you
To make my heart sing
>From a love so fine and true

I do not have any trips to Europe planned for the nearest future but when I go
there I will let you know, may be we will be able to meet.


mardi 4 juillet 2006 09:48:29
My darling Julien,
I can't keep smiling while reading your letters.
You make me so happy. I really like you and I have strong feelings
towards you. I find it hard to believe that we found each other. I
read all of your letters to me and I look at your pictures and I get a
very strong feeling that we will be so good together. Your heart comes
through in your words and it is indeed a beautiful heart - something I
have been searching for my entire life. Distance does not matter at
all when it is something so precious. I feel your closeness. I have
also been dreaming of when we meet. I know I will be nervous (very!),
but very excited at the same time. I dream of looking into your eyes,
feeling your hand holding mine, sharing every moment of every day with
you, feeling your presence, growing together as individuals and as
one. These are the things that make life worth living, the things that
bring joy, fulfillment and true happiness into my heart. These are the
most important, the most wonderful things in the world and I have
found all of these things in my dreams about you. I can't tell you how
much I long to finally meet you. Thank you very much for your support.
Since we've been writing and I have come to know you, I have been
calmer, more optimistic and so much happier with the world in general.
It has been a kind of realization - that God and fate will bring us
together for a reason and the happiness we all seek is close at hand.
It really is kind of hard to believe that two people so right for each
other can find each other across such great distances, but I'm so glad
that has happened! I talked to my boss about going to France on
business, he doesn't mind, he can give me a business certificate to
supply my Green Journalist card but he says no money are scheduled for
this trip and my job can't pay for it but if I go on my own he won't
mind it. I thought that may be you could pay for my plane tickets to
Europe, I have a discount with Aeroflot Russian airlines and tickets
for me costs 350 UU dollars and after I come back I will get
vocational money which will be around 500 dollars and i could
reimburse your expenses. will it be fine with you to do it? the w e
will be able to meet in about three weeks. I'm anxiously awaiting your
reply. Until then, you are, and always will be, in my dreams. Thank
you, my dear, for all of the wonderful changes you have made in my
life. I miss you very much, and thanks again for everything.


lundi 10 juillet 2006 15:34:38My dear Julien,
sorry i couldn't reply earlier, last week I was so busy finishing the article
and the editor-in-chief still didn't like it and i had to correct it again and
again and my boss wanted me to do it quickly so I was very tired.
I missed you a a lot and couldn't wait to go to the Internet cafe to see the
words you wrote for me.
Do you believe in love at first sight? I have heard of it happening between two
people but never never thought it could happen to me. I should probably not tell
you this but my heart says YES, tell him how you feel! So I am giving my heart
and life to you as the man of my dreams.... I really want to correspond with you
and only you to build our trust and love in a wonderful passionate romance
You can only see the beauty of this world when you with your beloved. You will
start to see this happening to you when you fall in love and it always grows the
longer you are experiencing the love of each other and the beauties of nature
together.... I want our love to never grow old but always increasing in the
enjoyment of each other. I want to enjoy you in everything we do together in
this life. This is the only thing that satisfies the soul of men and woman is

lundi 17 juillet 2006 13:09:24

My darling Julien,

Your letters this morning filled my soul with delight. I am so happy to hear
again from you and to read your lovely words to me. Wow, I cannot believe
how lucky I am that you have chosen me to correspond with and to pursue this
most wonderful of relationships with. I have been waiting for so long to
embrace this feeling of love for my special man and now finally you have
come into my life. I feel so blessed and I thank you deeply for opening
your heart to me. I love the fact that you are a hopeless romantic. So I
am!! I want so much to get to know you and what you are feeling and all sorts of
other things about you.

I do believe in love at first sight. I knew when I first received your very first email that you were special and I felt an instant attraction to you, not just because to me you are so beautiful, but because of how you described yourself to me. There was so much I liked about you straight away.

I do indeed want you as my beloved. Please know that I wish so much for our
relationship to lead to marriage and I think you feel the same. First I
think it is important that we can trust each other implicitly. Do you agree
with me? 

Second part of August is a good time for me to visit you, we can make
plans, please, tell me the name is the airport where you could meet me
and I will check the flights. When are you on line, i tries to contact
you in yahoo before but you were off line.

Okay I will stop here and send this to you. I feel so blessed that you have
chosen me and I will always cherish you for this, my Love.

Take care,

With my love, hugs and kisses,

Your baby

mardi 25 juillet 2006 13:52:19

Hello, My darling,

I am here to write you that I am leaving on a business trip to
Azerbaijan on Thursday and I will be back to Kazan on August' 10 I do
not know if I will have an access to the Internet there but if I do I
will write you. Your letters are always welcome too. I will miss you
and please, do not be offended if I can't write, you are always in my
mind. here is a poem for you.

Look into your heart and tell me what you see.
Am I still on your mind; are you thinking of me?
Do you wake in the night and let out a sigh?
Do you whisper my name and wonder why;
I can't be there with you tonight?
With you in my arms, holding you tight?
Do you believe in the miracle of Love
Do you believe in you
Do you believe in Love
Do you believe it could happen to you
Take me in your arms, don't ever leave
With you in my arms, I'll make you believe!
I believe in Love, always and forever.
I believe in us, you and I together.
I can't believe Love is pain,
You have everything to lose and nothing to gain.
Tell me you believe and look into my eyes...
Do you believe... I'm not like the other guys?
Hold on tight, for I've given you my heart;
Heart and soul from the very start.
For your Love, I'll wait forever
With all my heart, I believe we'll be together.
Tell me you believe Love is bliss,
That you can believe in the magic of our first kiss.
Answer me one question, now, before I leave...
Tell me, Do You Believe?

I love you with all my heart and want to be with you.


lundi 14 août 2006 08:58:46My darling Julien,
I am back to Kazan at last. I came here only today's morning though I
planed to be back on Thursday. The problem was that there were no
tickets for a train from Moscow to Kazan. it is vocation time and
trains are full. i stayed in Moscow till Sunday and my boss decided it
would be cheaper for him to pay for my plane ticket than for my hotel
staying in Moscow. So am back home at last. it was an ordinary trip, I
didn't like Azerbaijan much but Baku (capital) is beautiful. it is a
big international port on the Black sea. the weather was very hot and
we went swimming almost every evening as we were staying very close to
the beach. It was very cold in Moscow and today in Kazan is a bit warmer
but all looks like summer has gone. I missed you a lot, i was thinking
a lot about us and i realized how much you mean to me. i had very
special feelings to you before but after not being able to communicate
with you for so long I understood how dear you are to me and how much
I want to be with you. Do you still wish to meet me in Paris? i hope so and I
can't wait our meeting to happen in real life.
Please, write soon and tell me about your plans/

mercredi 16 août 2006 10:36:21My dear Julien,
I was very happy to get your letter. The end of September is fine for em to come
to Paris, i will check the flights. Will you be able to meet me in the airport?
I also wanted to ask you where I will stay during my trip?
Remember, I promised you something about Swan lake… ok, here it goes:

Swan Lake

Swan Lake was playing on the day
The Russian princess sat alone,
Her sad heart searching for a way
to find her love to take her home.

She looked across the frozen lake
and there she saw a frozen swan,
a perfect bird as white as snow
a lovely thing to look upon.

Yet there it was, so cold and hard
still waiting for the warmth of spring,
to find its soul, to come to life
to learn to laugh, to talk and sing.

And as she looked across the white
and felt the chill of winter's hand,
she caught a glimpse of something true,
of something new in this dark land.

He came to her across the lake,
Upon the frozen swan he rode,
He smiled and touched her icy face,
And bid her "come to my abode."

They sat upon the frozen swan,
He took her hand and stroked her hair,
The swan began to shake its wings
And wisked them up into the air.

It sang with joy and cried with tears,
It flew into the sky above,
For it had waited many years
to be set free,
the swan is love.

This is the meaning of the poem: I'm your Russian princess
sitting next to the frozen lake. You are the one who comes and takes away to
a paradise. The swan represents love, which is not liberated until we
meet. I love Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky. His music is so beautiful and
emotionally evocative. I was imagining it as I wrote this poem. Time will
tell when this comes true : ) I'm a romantic at heart, as you can probably
tell, and I think love is the most wonderful thing - the closest we will
get to heaven on this earth.
Well my dear I will let you go now,

mercredi 23 août 2006 13:05:00

Dear Julien,
Yes, the dates are fine with me, I will check the flight to paris and talk to my
boss about a business certificate to travel without Visa.
Thank you for your sweet letter again, every time I read your letters I have
tears in my eyes, but these are the tears of happiness. I want to be with you
every hour of the day, every day of the week, every week of the month, every
month of the year, for the rest of my life. That is how much I feel for you, and
I mean that when I say it. I'm so glad I met you. You filled the emptiness
inside my heart. Where would I be with out you? You make me have a very good reason to wake up in the morning. I'm never going to be able to get over you. I love you for what you do for me. You are the sunshine on a rainy day. You brighten up my day with a smile. You are just you, and that is what makes me love you with all of my heart...
I'm looking for when we meet each other and I will be able to tell you
everything what I feel looking into your eyes. I'm sorry for telling you all
these sentimental words but today I had such feelings and I wanted to tell you
about them. I'm looking forward to hearing you again.
Yuliajeudi 31 août 2006 14:23:33

Hello, my dear Julien,

I was waiting for your letter with much impatience. I talked to my
boss and he says it is fine if I take vocations in September or October so it
won't be a problem. I will also be very glad to talk to you on the
phone. I can use my friend's mobile phone to talk to you on Monday. i
will be at my friend's place from 5 till 7 pm Russian time, we are two hours
ahead of france. her number is +7 904 725 4864 If you can,
please, call me, I can't wait to hear your voice and discuss our

vendredi 15 septembre 2006 13:42:59Hello, dear Julien,

This is the number you can reach me now, my boss is out of the office and I use his cell phone +7 902 325 3240
I have a problem with coming to you, my boss doesn't mind me taking vocations
since September' 20 but I will get vocational money only after I am back to work as they didn't plan me in advance. So I am afraid I will not be able to cover the travel expenses. I will talk to my parents, may be they
can help a bit and I will let you know soon.

mardi 19 septembre 2006 16:21:10My dear Julien,
Unfortunately I do not have good news. An accountant department told me they
can't give me vocational money in advance, only after I am back to work. But
I still do not lose hope to meet you, I am going to the bank tomorrow to find
out if I can take a loan. My salary is good enough to take a loan so i hope
it will work and we will spend wonderful time together.
I was very happy to finally talk to you on the phone, it was really great,
much better than emailing each other as i discovered a lot of things about
you and I liked everything I knew. I see what an intelligent and well
educated person you are. You are also so kind so sweet and lovely. I was
smiling for the whole evening after our conversation, you made me so happy.
Thank you very much for your tender and loving words.
I enjoyed your voice and i hope when you are back we will be able to talk more.

mercredi 4 octobre 2006 11:57:25MY DEAR JULIEN,



mardi 10 octobre 2006 13:55:13

My darling Julien,

At last o Got rid of that terrible cough! I am much better now but it
t is the only good news I have for you, i went to several banks to
find out about the loan, they can give it to me, my salary is good
enough to pay it out but I should sign the paper that I will not go
abroad during this time, they are afraid of loosing their money and
that's why they have such a rule. So I was think that probably I could
borrow this money from you and when I get vocational money I will send
them t you. I suggest that you pay the rest money for my ticket to our
company travel agent directly, I asked him about it and he says
that is possible, they have a bank account and they will be
responsible for your money, in case I do not come ( but I will come
anyway) you always can get your money back. What will you say about
this suggestion? I am here not after money but I am very serious in
finding my second half, so I do not want you to send money directly to
me but if you were going to give me the money after my arrival to you,
I think it will make no difference for you as you will always be able
to get your money back. You can contact the travel agent our company
works with and he will give you all the information, his address is tell him that you are a friend of Yulia Potyomkina
and he will understand as I have already discussed it with him.

My kisses and my heart go to you!

My darling Julien,

Thank you for your letter, your love and your tenderness and also for
your desire to help me with the tickets. I appreciate so much
everything you do for me and I am so much obliged to you for it. You
have brought a lot of happiness into my life. Honey, I do believe you
will make me happy with your love. I want to make you the happiest and
the most precious and beloved man in the world too. I want to love
you, cherish you and take care of you for the rest of my life. It's
amazing how you have swept my heart and took my breath away. I am now
completely in love with you and felt that I was born to love you. You
are right! It is wonderful that we have found each other. We are each
other's gift from God and we will always be grateful to Him. We will
spend our life together and will always take care of each other, love
and cherish each other. Honey, I feel that all of a sudden I am
starting to live just for you. My thoughts are all about you and my
heart and soul long just for you at every second and every hour of the
day. I can't wait for our meeting, for us to be together. We will plan
our future together and to live every moment of our existence
I asked in western union what is needed to organize the money transfer, they
told me the information I should give you, that is:
name - Yulia Potyomkina
country - Russia
city - Yoshkar-Ola
street - Baumana

After you send the money you will be given
confirmation code (it is called MTCN) which I will need to know, I will also
need your full
name and your address and phone number which you will write when
sending the funds.

I will need to show my passport and to give them all the information
requires, seems to be easy. November'1 is fine with me, I talked to my
boss and he doesn't mind, so he will also give me a business certificate
which will allow me to travel without Visa. It is pretty soon and I am
so so happy we will meet at last. That would be great to talk on the
phone with you again. I will be at my friend's place this week on
Thursday from 5 till 8 Russian time and you are welcome to call me,
listening toy your voice makes me so happy and i can' t wait. My
friend's number is +7 904 725 4864 Well, till then now, you are
always in my dreams!

Love and kisses,
Yuliajeudi 26 octobre 2006 11:22:19Hello, my dear, Julien,

I tried to get the money yesterday but I had problems. they told me
that according to the rules of Western union my first name should be
spelled differently, that is YULIYA instead of Yulia. i showed them my
international passport where my name is spelled as Yulia but the say
it is a rule their and they can give me money only after you correct
my first name. Please, contact your western union office and ask them
to correct my name. I understand it may be very difficult for you while
you are in your trip so if you can't do it from there we will have to
wait for a bit longer till you can do it. please, let me know when you
correct the information and I will go and get the money and then book
a ticket.


vendredi 27 octobre 2006 13:29:23My dear Julien,

did you get my last letter? How is your trip? I am waiting for your
advice what we should do, our travel agent found some flights for me
and there is one very good which is close to your arrival time but I
have to wait to get the money till you ask them to change the spelling
of my first name. Have a good trip and know that you are always in my


samedi 28 octobre 2006 13:54:09I have just come back from western union office, I couldn't get the
money as i was told the money were taken back by the sender. I do not
understand. I asked them about why you had to change my name as in my
international passport my name is spelled as Yulia and in my green
journalist card it is the same but they said they have such rules in
western union that every letter should be spelled. that is because of
the difference in Russian alphabet as we have one letter that renders
the sound YU and in English two letters are necessary. So decide
yourself what we should do next, may be we should wait till you are
back to France and will be bale to settle this matter from there? I
also didn't understand why they told you about fraud, they just told
me there that they can't give me the money because my name is not
written correct and asked me to tell the sender to correct the

Well, I have to be back to work now, hope to hear from you soon.

mardi 31 octobre 2006 13:47:59My darling Julien,

I have got the money on Friday, sorry I didn't let you know at once, i
went to our travel agent to book my ticket at once. he promised to do
it as quickly as possible and i was going to write you on Friday to
give you flight details. But when I cam to his place he said there
were no tickets left to Paris till Novembr'11. he called Aeroflot
Russian Airlines and they said there were some seats reserved that
could be rejected later, that is on Tuesday and I had to wit till
today to find out if he could fine a ticket for me, but still no good
news. it was too later. We had to wait for too long with all these
problems with western union. please, tell me what another date can i
come to you. there are still tickets available for Novembr'11 and for
later dates. I will check my mail tomorrow morning and after i get
your reply I will book the ticket immediately. I know you will be in
Paris tomorrow and i do not know what your further plans are, you said
you could take some time off to spend with me but you will have to
work, so please, tell me as soon as possible for what date I should book
my ticket.


vendredi 3 novembre 2006 07:34:05My dear Julien,

I understand your concern, all I can do is just to say that I am
serious, honest and sincere, I truly want to meet you and stay with
you forever. I will talk to my boss today and appoint the vocation
and book the tickets for the closest day to arrive to Paris. I can fly
with Aeroflot Russian Airlines only as our company cooperates with
them our travel agent can book my tickets only through them, if I use
different airlines then I will have to get a Visas I won't be bale to
travel as a journalist. Aeroflot has several flights a day so it
won't be a problem to book ticket a week in advance. I will send you
flight details in my next letter.


That's it, some letters have been deleted. I called her also many times and she called me sometime.

Rimma Grigorieva (Kazan, Russia)

I have been talking a woman that I believe I met throught for a couple months now. However recently she has been acting suspicious. She asks for $1250 dollars to help pay for her plane ticket. She asked for me to send cash through western union. And if I don't send it to her within a few days her down payment for the tickets will be taken and she will lose the plane ticket. Below are her details along with 4 of the suspicious emails. 

Name of Scammer:

Rimma Grigorieva
Minskaya Street
House #32
Kazan, Russia 

First Suspicious Email

Hi my lovely Chris! I am glad to speak again with you! Weather in
Kazan too strange. Now temperature about 0C '. We have not enough 
snow. The snow drops out. In day again thaws. So it is constant.
dear, I have good news to you. Today I have met the agent
travel to learn concerning the visa. he has explained me a situation
about reception of the visa to you. Your government has made more 
strict control over entrance to the country because of terrorism
and consequently to receive to you the visa uneasy. But the agency
will make it for me. The agent has told, that they recently already
received some visas of tourists in your country. I am very glad
Chris, that we will not have with it big difficulties. I all over
again had fears, that the agency cannot it to make or for this purpose
very long time will be required. But the agent has told, that the 
visa will demand from them two or three weeks. Tomorrow I will
need to reach in office of agency, to sign there the contract and
also we shall decide question on payment of them. Now it is time to me
to go lovely to make photos for the visa and to fill in 
questionnaires for embassy. The agent has told, it should be is
prepared tomorrow when I shall come to them to office. I very pleased
Chris, that now our preparations have begun and through small time we
shall be together! Write to me lovely ideas, I wait for your messages.

Second Suspicious Email

glad, that you are ready to our meeting. It will be very pleasant to
me to visit you. You see it for me will be unforgettable Travel. It
will be very interesting to me to see your country and its sights. I 
very much would want, that you have shown me cities of your country, I

eyes it absolutely other. I as have desire to learn you as it is
possible better. I would like to speak with you on Various vital 
themes and situations. I very much would like to learn your sights on
life. I as shall tell to you. I shall share with you the dreams.
Probably we with you can do of romantic walk on a coast of ocean. You
would love to go for a walk with me at the night? Still I would like 
to get acquainted with your family. I know, that it is the very good
people and it will be pleasant to me to communicate with them. I
reached in office of agency and signed with them the contract. In
conformity with the contract, the agency will prepare me for all 
documents for travel, to buy for me the ticket and to deliver me
to the plane. From my city there are no planes to you and consequently
I all over again will need to reach to Moscow, and therefrom already
to you. My agent needs some information for a route of the plane,
inform me dear, the address and the nearest airport to you to which
I shall arrive. This information is necessary tomorrow that the
agent could develop route and to establish all cost of travel. 
Today I paid in him the first part of money, for the visa and
other documents for travel. It was in some times more, than I
thought. I planned, that the visa will cost for me about 100$, but
because of difficulties for its reception is was for me 220. dear, it
is possible, that to me you will be required the help for payment of
other part of cost of travel. I have some money still, and also took
some money at my parents, but it is possible them will not suffice 
for payment of the second part of cost, for insurance and tickets. It
will be known after the agent will develop a route. The second part
of cost I should pay under the contract, before to take away the
visa. I shall inform you Chris, if to be necessary for me the help. I 
hope, that it will not be a problem for you and I can not worry
about it. I informed you all news about promotion of our meeting and
now I go to have a rest, I am very tired today. I hope, what I can
soon embrace you Chris. I wait for your messages my favourite . My 
kisses and embraces!

Yours Azalea.

P.S. Do not overlook to inform the address and the near airport.

Third Suspicious Email

Hi lovely Chris! I am glad to read your message. Dear, I feel itself
it is a little inconvenient. Because I had to address to you for the 
help. I always counted myself the independent person, which itself can
solve all problems. But, this time, I could not all to take into
account and was mistaken that I can pay all travel itself. Earlier I
counted myself the strong and independent person, and it was pleasant 
for me to feel, that I can care of myself. And now I feel simply the
woman who requires support. But it is pleasant for me, to feel beside
strong the man which protects me from all excitements of a life!
Unfortunately agents could not find a way to the airport Lewisburg. 
But up to the airport Roanoke, the agency can find for me tickets.
Chris, I informed a place of arrival to you to the agent and he
expected the staying charges for me. It will be for me 1850$US. Here
tickets, insurance, road up to the airport and some other necessary 
charges. With me have still remained money, after payment of the first
parts of cost. It near 650$US, and now is necessary for me, in 4-5
days near 1200$US to pay in agency the second part of cost travel. I
hope dear, that this money not difficulty for you and you can help to 
pay to me, in 4-5 days, 1200$US in agency. I shall learn from the
agent as you can send them it. Lovely, I hope, that I did not make to
you difficulty by the haste. Probably it is not planned expenditure
for you. If it so, not become angry about me please! I think, that 
there can be at you 3 months because my visa will be valid during this
time. But we should meet to think of our relations further. I very
much miss on you and I wait for ours meetings. I wait for your
messages Chris! Thousand kisses. 

Yours Azalea.

few frank ideas. When we Let's meet!! That you will learn about my
desires in more detail. I I think, that it . Will be very attractive
to you!! I think, that it will be better if I shall come to you on
January, 22. Because so we can be more time together. But on January, 
22 it will be Monday. Can reserve to me the ticket for January, 21 or
on 26. these days you will be free from college. What do you think?
Inform me. Dear, I received the detailed information on moving money.

to me have told, that such offices are available in each city,
therefore for you the problem will not find it. When you will send
