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 would like to thank the creators of this site and especially one contributor to the site, namely Shane, who wrote a profile on a Miheeva, Marina aka Margo. You have saved me a lot of money and a lot of grief. The thing to remember about dating site scammers, and this one in particular, is that even though they may correspond with you for weeks - they are essentially lazy. They may respond to the general gist of your e-mails but generally do not respond to specific details, such as questions, comments or photos. They also have a tendency to re-use a lot of the same material that has worked for them in the past.


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!


Anjella first contacted me through We have been emailing for about 5 weeks now. She made no mention of money until last week. Thanks to you I was wary and di not send any money. She asked for help with tickets after the visa cost her more than expected. I found her IP address and did a google search and found your site with almost identical emails. Copy and paste with some personal questions answered at the top. Thanks for saving me some grief.

Elena aka


Hello !
You probably are very surprised to my letter, but all the same I hope that you waited for it. Me always surprised, how people get acquainted on the Internet, and that the most interesting, find there the love. But recently, my sister became one of such people: she has got acquainted with the husband on the Internet, and now they live very happily and love each other. It has learnt me to use recently the Internet and has advised to find to me the love here. 
I have seen many interesting questionnaires and have decided to stop on you, I can not explain why. Probably I was helped by my intuition, know, it never brought me. In this letter I will a little tell about myself and if suddenly you wish to continue our dialogue you learn about me more in following letters. 
Me calls Elena. To me of 27 years. I never was married, but recently I think of it much. Probably, for this reason I have decided to try the good luck on a site of acquaintances. After I have left school, I have gone to study as the teacher of initial classes. I very much love children, and I like to be engaged with them, they very amusing, isn't that so? I live together with the parents. At us small, but very lovely apartment. But, probably, you will be surprised very much with one fact … I from Russia. It is valid so, and, unfortunately, it is very far from you. It was very difficult to place the questionnaire on a site of acquaintances because it does not accept participants from my country. Therefore in the questionnaire I have chosen other country - the USA. I live in city Zelenodolsk. You should know it because you are possible will not want to continue our dialogue, as between us huge distance. But you as should know, that if we will sometime want to meet, the distance will not be for me an obstacle. If I love the person I will reach it even on the brink of the Earth. 
It is interesting, whether you have felt now insuperable desire to get acquainted with me?
You know, I love romanticism and romantic gentlemen. And still, I like to set many questions. Therefore be not surprised, that already in the first letter I set so many questions. 
At me to you the next question: as though you have arrived, if I have appeared in mountains and nearby there would be only you? You would come to me to the aid? As though you have arrived during such moment? If to you it will be not difficult, answer please my question. It is very interesting to me that you think in this occasion. You know I not so worry that we so far apart because to me it is very new and the reflexion is interesting to get acquainted with the person from another the countries, where other culture, traditions. I hope, that too it will be interesting to you to learn more about the Russian girl. Therefore I have sent you the photos and I want, that you too have sent me the. But if, on what that to the reason you do not want to correspond with me you, please, could not inform me on it that I did not hope in vain and waited from you for the answer.
I hope for your fast reply, Elena.

Thanks you , that you have sent the photos. You know, you have liked me, and your photos very interesting.
I think , that from my previous letters you have understood, that at me serious intentions to get acquainted with the good man. I do not know as you on it you will react, but you have very strongly interested me also I wish to learn as much as possible about you. I wish to learn as you live, than you are engaged, that for you in this life the main thing what the purposes at you, I wish to learn your character, what music you is loved also what by you read books … as a whole to me interestingly all about you. And it is final, I will try to tell to you all about myself. I live in a small city and at me few possibilities are interesting to spend a free time. And how you spend a free time? Write to me about it, it will be interesting to me to learn about it as much as possible. I already wrote that my trade - the teacher. I teach to children Russian and the literature. I very much am pleasant like with them, of course, sometimes it happens very difficultly, but after all it is children, they amusing. I very much like to read books as it is connected with my trade. But I do not want that you have thought, that I what that the boring woman who for days on end reads books. I as very much like to meet my friends and to spend with them time. Still I like to prepare. My mum since the childhood said to me, that the way to heart the man lays through a stomach. And what you think in this occasion? To me to like to communicate with interesting people. In men I appreciate sincerity and honesty, to me to like, when the man bears responsibility for the actions and is final, when the man is betrayed the by a beloved. Should tell at once, that fleeting novels not for me. I consider, that the woman should be devoted to the beloved, as well as the man. But, unfortunately, I yet have not met that man who could win my heart and to which I could open the soul completely. But I do not think, that at me the big requirements to men. On the contrary, I prefer, when the person is modest and simple in dialogue. The age for me is not important, as I consider, what love all age are obedient, isn't that so? Many people consider, that the most important thing for the person is its prosperity and position in a society. But for me it not the main thing. The most important thing that the person was kind and fair. And it it is enough to like the woman. In relations between the man and the woman the love, instead of money should be the most important moment. What do you think in this occasion? It seems to me, that an overall objective in a life of each woman should be creation of a strong family together with the favourite person who will always support it. And I wish to find the happiness with such person. Tell to me , for the sake of what woman you are ready to be ready to do anything to win its heart and to be always with it? What women involve you? Possibly, you are surprised to such frank questions for my part. But it is really interesting to me to learn answers to these questions.
I have shortly written to you about the thoughts. If to you it is not difficult, write to me please about the thoughts. I will wait for your answer.
Sincerely yours, Elena

Hello! I was very glad to receive again from you the letter. If it is fair, I thought that you any more will not want to write to me because in my last letter there was so much a grief and grief. Therefore I very much was delighted, having received from you the answer. Your letter for me was the present pleasure!
With each letter I learn you more, and you very much like me. I hope, that my frankness does not frighten you. I have understood, that you can be the partner which interestingly and competently is able to tell about itself. It seems to me, that you the present romanticist and the gentleman. And whether you can present, what we with you together and you feel, what the attraction between all of us is stronger also you wish to prolong this moment? It seems to me, that I can imagine it …
With this letter I send you one more photo. I hope, that you waited for it. I would like to learn a little about your family what relations at you, whether often you see with each other, there can be you celebrate together any holidays? Please, write to me about it, it is very interesting to me to learn about you more. And I will try to write to you about the family.
In my family very close and good relations. My father name Petr, to him 59 years. The name of my mother Anastasiya, it is more younger my father, to her 54 years. Mine the father works as the driver, and my mum as well as I teaches at school. Actually I have gone in the footsteps of mum, and we work at one school. My parents have very long lived together, and they are very happy with each other. I love the parents. When I look at them, I see as they love each other. Me always surprised, that they could carry by the love through such considerable quantity of years. I wish to have the same future. 
We live in convenient apartment with three rooms, one of which drawing room.. 
We have a small tradition in a family: every Friday to us visitors come. At first we lovely talk and we drink tea, and then my mum plays a piano. And we together sit and we listen to its singing. You know, my mum very beautifully sings, very much it is pleasant to all. It seems to me, it could become the singer. If you have heard its songs, I think, very much it would be pleasant to you. 
As to my private life, now there at me emptiness. I did not wish to write to you about it, but I wish to be sincere before you in all. I had relations with one man, and I thought, that I love it. It has given me many time and attention. But I completely was disappointed in it, and any more I do not wish it to recollect. And I have decided, that I will not wait any more when my love will find me. 
I have decided to address in service of acquaintances, in hope to find here the love. Who knows, there can be here I will find the person who will love, appreciate me me, to respect and understand. In a profile I have defined, that I search for the man is more senior me as I think, that more mature person to concern women with the big we understand also respect. I appreciate it. I am ready to give to such person everything that in our family was as small as possible quarrels and conflicts. I think, it is happiness. 
On it I wish to finish the letter. If to you it will not be difficult, you I can not write, what thoughts at you were after you have read my letter. I will wait for your answer.
Sincerely yours Elena

Hello! To me it is very pleasant, that you always very attentively read my letters and answer all my questions. Thanks you for it! Usually, I do not speak on such deep themes with people, but with you I would like to speak about all. I the independent woman, but am visible sometimes, even the man who can understand and support her is necessary for the independent woman. You know, in you I see such person, after all you so perfectly understand me. We have something the general, isn't that so? It very much is pleasant to me!
Thanks you that you have written to me about the family. It was very interesting to me to read this letter, and I could learn more about you, about your life. I have understood, that you are surrounded many with interesting and kind people. But it seemed to me, that near to you there is no favourite person who could support, appreciate and understand you always. Possibly, you do not have not enough such person who could care of you near to which to you it would not be boring to which you can give and receive much even more in exchange. And the more you think of it, the more you understand, what such person is necessary for you, isn't that so?, whether you as to us it can be good together as we can rejoice lives can imagine and spend together unforgettable time. And if you can imagine day from your life, say, year through two from a present situation you can look back back for two years, the past from the moment of our acquaintance and to understand: how much you then, in the past, were right, that have felt to me, that you test to me, reading these lines, and have accepted the correct decision is unique.
Probably on it, I will finish the letter. I need to run home, to us there have arrived relatives whom I did not see very long time, and I promised to them, that I will soon return.
And the last, that I wish to tell to you it that recently I have told about you to my parents. You can not worry, at me very good parents, and they perfectly have understood me. And even have told, that they will not object, if our friendship outgrows in something more. I have in turn decided to joke of the parents, and have told, that I soon will go to you on a visit to meet and better to learn each other. And how you think that they have answered me? My mum has told to me: «your life in your hands, do how you will count correct». But I consider, that to us still early to speak about a meeting. Simply, I am very glad, that my parents have managed us to understand.
I wish you good mood. Very much I wait for your following letter.
Sincerely yours, Elena

Hello my dear! I have read your letter, and it was interesting to me to learn your opinion that I wrote. With each your letter I learn you and your character more and more. And I am am pleased very much with that fact, that we understand each other. Thanks, that you have again answered my questions, I hope that they do not bother you.
I see that you are very romantic and clever. And I want you which about what to ask and learn your opinion. It is very interesting to me as you think, what such love? I do not know, whether there were at you people who loved you really and very strongly. But I dare to think, that it happened, as you very interesting and lovely. And whether you can imagine that you love someone very strongly; try to design these feelings not me. What have you felt? It was fine, isn't that so? I already tried to make as in relation to you, and very much it was pleasant to me …
Recently, when I come back from work home, or I go in shop behind products, or simply I sit on a sofa and I have a rest from the heavy working day, I very often think of, whether if on light ideal happy love? I cannot find the answer to this question … But I seem to me already have found the answer. Yes, yes, just, while I wrote to you these lines, I have suddenly understood that any love - happy and ideal on the. The unfortunate love is not present, simply some people like itself to torment, they I can not live without it, for them tortures it is necessity. You so do not think? Write me the opinion in this occasion, it is very interesting to me to learn it.
In last letters you wrote to me, that you like to spend time (with friends etc. to describe). It is very healthy, I once again see that you very interesting man. I too like to spend time with the friends. We together go on dances, to cinema, sometimes simply we visit to each other. But if to be sincere, recently our entertainments do not bring to me pleasure. I often dream of romantic evening with the favourite person. It can be a romantic supper or simply walk. It seems to me it is very lovely.
excuse me for not a modest question: whether if at you the woman? I think, that you very good person and can like many women. And whether such woman as I can, to like you? I understand, that it is your private life and if my questions are suddenly unpleasant to you, you can not answer them.. Probably, you have any frank questions to me: You can set to me them, and I will try, to answer them in the following letter. Write to me in more details about feelings and desires which you test. I am ready to read about it. With impatience I wait for your letter. Sincerely yours, Elena.

With this letter I send you the photos. Possibly, those photos which at you are have bothered also you to them has got used a little. I hope, that these photos will present to you new emotions.
Most likely this time I cannot write you the long letter, because tomorrow at my father birthday. 
Therefore today we with mum will prepare for a holiday: to prepare salads, to pack a gift and so on. And you love holidays?
What your favourite holiday? Probably it is New Year or Christmas, whether not so? It seems to me, all love new Year! Tell to me as you celebrate this day.
It will be very interesting to me to learn about it. 
On it I perhaps will finish the letter because I need to go. All good to you road,
Pleasant day to you!

I told about you to the parents much, you spoke whence, than you are engaged what remarkable person and as it is fine we each other we understand. They very much were delighted when have learnt, that I have found the person who understands and respects me. My father was very happy, when has learnt about you. Now he asks, when I will acquaint him with you. I answer it what for the present early to speak about a meeting because it is very serious step because we are far apart. And to meet it is necessary to trust first of all each other. You know, and I trust you! Not looking that we never saw each other, I can safely tell that I trust you! Because it seems to me, that I know you all life! At us with you so fine dialogue and mutual understanding! I could not even present, that such happens! I very much would like to learn, what you think in this occasion? Whether you have any plans concerning our relations? I think, that for us it will be very good to spend together some days. Allow me to ask you: how much for you it was surprising, if you have suddenly understood, what wish to spend with me of a few time? You can present us together as we talk to you and as together well … To me it seems to us if you think of it it only will strengthen ours with you relations! Possibly, next month we can meet, for example, in Europe. You likely are surprised, why I do not invite you to myself, to Russia. I will answer at once. It seems to me, that if you will arrive to me, we will be stirred by my parents, friends and relatives. And then we cannot learn each other so close as we would like it. It seems to me, that our first meeting should occur in a neutral territory that nobody prevented to learn better to us each other and to take pleasure in fine instants which we could spend together! I very much would wish to see your eyes, to communicate with you on email, and alone that were only you and I! Dear, thus, we could have full idea about each other. I think we should discuss it.

Recently I am in very uneasy condition, in an anticipation of our meeting! I imagine as it can occur, as it will be fine for us! I am am overflowed with fine feelings! You have brought the sea of emotions during my life! A little bit it is difficult to me to describe these feelings, but I with confidence can tell that it has given a new push in my life and it is very pleasant for me! I hope, that you understand me and feel the same feelings.
I think, dear, it is necessary to arrange for us a meeting so that there were no difficulties and inconveniences in our affairs that we could enjoy freely the friend the friend. I can agree on the work concerning several free days. Whether you can make the same on the work? Possibly at you Very much a busy schedule on work. It seems to me, in that case, that our meeting was as much as possible convenient for you, I could arrive to you.. Because on my work, for me it is possible to make holiday by longer. My chief, I think, to me will not give up, as I did not use for a long time the holiday.
If such way is more convenient for you and my arrival then allow to choose it. I think in this case will be less inconveniences for you. And for me it even is better, because I can see as you live, to a smog to get acquainted with your friends (if certainly you not against), you can show me a city, the favourite places in it. And if suddenly it will be necessary for you to visit not for a long time the work, you can always make it as you will be a number. On my work can consult without me, therefore I do not worry about affairs.

This news has very much pleased me, as at me There were some fears concerning that the agency cannot it
To make or it will last very long. But me have calmed also I in Anticipation of our meeting! Every day I think more and more About it! The agent has told, that on visa manufacturing it is required two or Three weeks. Tomorrow I again should go to agency and sign with Them the contract and also to solve a question on payment.

This The information is necessary for me by tomorrow that my agent could To make for me a route and to establish all cost of the ticket.

At me the contract with travel agency on which they give me all necessary documents and tickets. They completely provide my trip. Therefore I cannot buy the ticket separately.

hello dear,
Why you did not say to me earlier, what I should warn you to a call? You wanted, that I spent time and is simple so worried about it?
I read your letters, and simply I descend already from mind! What you with me do? 
You arrive with me not fairly!
References which you have sent me have no what relation to me. I scam, I the fair woman. Why you so about me think? Or you think, what the love is love but to check all it is necessary? Why you have not sent a copy of yours ID, how a guarantee of your kind intentions?
To me it is not important, that your friends speak. If want I will go to the girlfriends and they will think up 100 tests to check up you. You want it?
I have sent you copies of my documents! It means, that I go to you! 
What you still want?

I will call to you tomorrow exactly at 22:00 Moscow time.

So, we with you agreed about telephone conversation. You have ruined this conversation. 
You wished to see real my real desire to meet you. You have seen it. 
Now the travel agency wants money after tomorrow. 
They have told, that the best way it westernunion.
For this purpose you need to go to office westerunion and to make transfer into my name.
Here data for this transfer: name Anastasiya, surname Karpova, country Russia, republic Tatarstan, city Zelenodolsk, Pervomayskaya 20.
That I have received money, you need to tell to me data about remittance: your full name, the address, the exact sum of transfer. Control number MTCN. 
As soon as I will receive money, I will go at once to travel agency and I will finish the transaction. And after a while we will be together. 
Now we have all necessary for our meeting. 
If you try to speak that I should be patient, and that you should be convinced in something. Do not spend our time. I long waited for you, every day to you called, have sent you copies of my documents. You meanwhile yet have not made anything for our meeting.
Besides the travel agency will not wait any more. Only two days. 
I hope for success of our meeting. 
Yours Elena

Elena Shabunina

My name is Ken, I am registered on a dating site called here in the US and was contacted by someone claiming to be a Russian women using the above name. I didn't believe the contact was legit from the very first letter below nor did I trust any of the information (name, Address, or even photo's). I have played along and we have gotten to the actual request for cash as seen in letter 8 below. There is no final to this story because I am currently scamming the scammer. Just thought I would update your site with this new information. This scammer is listed on this site already at page 254 as Yana Tsygantsova. As shown on that testimonial, this is a very mobile scammer with many names and e-mail addresses. I did not attach the same photo's as the other testimonial on this site. I was sent photo 2,3&4 top row and 1st photo bottom row of Ed's testimonial along with the 3 I have attached here. I have more photo's including an inappropriate photo for posting to this site. This is the same woman with her favorite stuffed animal. Well, gotta go, I just got another e-mail from my beloved Elena......

Scammers new e-mail address is, I will report to Yahoo after I'm done with this scammer.


First Letter
Hi! Thank's a lot for your answer!
I could not answer you earlier. I did not see your letter. It has been placed in spam folder. 
I do not know why it happens. Probably it is a mistake of a server. I will disconnect spam filter. 
I'm not sure what could I write for the first time, I'm sending my photos...
I have many photos, sorry I don't have any professional one, just usual photos. Let me know and I can send more pics!
I'm looking forward to visiting your beautiful country and I would like to find a man over there who will be interested in meeting me!
I've never been abroad before and I would like to visit it so much!
I'm looking for a friend, lover or maybe even something serious...
I'm a free bird now, I don't have a boyfriend and I'm open to anything!!! Pls send me your photos and write me about yourself!!!!
I would like to have a serious relationship although I don't know if that's possible in internet so I'm looking just for a good man who can show me over there and....... we will see!!!!!!!! I hope you like my pics!
I`m 27 years old, I hope my age is ok for you?? My height is 5.6
May I hope that you will write me back? I hope so much!
Also I hope I'm your type of girl, I'm not sure you like Slavic appearance!!

OK, I will wait for your answer. When I hear back from you I will write more things about myself and send more pics!
Elena (this is my real name)

I've got all the information and I'm resending it for you!! You see after my visit to the consulate and to the agency I am so happy to say we will meet in few days!!!! I am really lucky girl to meet you. Honey the thing is that I booked the nearest possible flight. I need some of your help. there is one small problem but I am sure we will be able to solve it. I wanted to ask you to help me to pay for my tickets directly but they tell I can't use your help or ask you about sending me tickets because I have a permission to use the help of the travel agency only because they do all travel things and it is their business to arrange all travel things for my trip, such is the law. It is not possible to get a work visa without the help of the agency, they have too strict rules of getting visas.
I was sure my mom will help me because she promised but now she sent a letter explaining it is possible only in few months or so because of our family problems. She can't send a transfer now. I was in the bank to try to ask them a loan but they said I need to have a registration in Moscow to get a loan from their bank and I don't have it! I think it is not great problem for you to help me. I even hope maybe it will be pleasure to help me because you are my knight, right? after all payments here and my flight from Chelyabinsk I have about 900 dollars of my own money and I need about 950 US dollars from your side because I have to pay for my tickets and few more things, and I have to pay in advance about 1790 dollars. The tickets are roundtrip and this price includes all arrangements of documents and everything. 
I have to be sure that I will be able to book my tickets or I will lose all the money I gave them in advance. I'm not going to ask one more time for your help, you see I am in such situation... I will be waiting for your answer. I know it sounds like I am a poor outsider but you see I don't have enough time to find the money I need and find somebody to help me, you know my mom gave me all she could collect for my travel. I hate to ask but now I don't have any other choice. I need some help from you, please help me to leave Moscow and it is all I ask now and you know I am full of the love to share with you. Kiss you, counting days and minutes before our meeting. You know it is only money, and I think it is not too hard for you to help me, you see I have such chance only once in my life. I know you are a kind man and I hope you will be able to help me. I promise I will return all the money and I will earn money because I am ready to work as hard as I can! You know my rent address here is Russia, Moscow, Dmitrovskoe Shosse 48, flat - 20. Remember my full name is Elena - (first name) Shabunina -(last name). It is right writing in English, and you should put it on Money Gram or western union list and you can choose any bank in Moscow, they tell it is international service and I can pick up the money at any bank of Moscow. They said I can get only Money Gram or western union transfer because I have not any bank accounts in Moscow and I have only passport and it is enough to get it!
If you need the address of Money Gram or Western Union in Moscow is
Moscow, 127434

Actually I've been told you can send it to any of their offices. I can call you as soon as I receive the transfer to let you know about it. And please after you complete a transfer write me the number of your transfer, I'm not sure how it's call but they will give you a number of your transfer.

Million of Kisses,
Your Elena

P.S. I am not sure I should tell this but I want to let you know if you don't like me when I come I will not bother you and it is only your choice to spend time with me or not. I know you may be too busy, and in any case I will return the money back. I can have a room for rent if I want, a job and I want to say please don't worry I don't want to use you just to reach my goal. I am sure when we meet we will have no regrets about it, I promise. Please, don't leave me alone I've done so much to start this trip and I don't want to give up. And I can stay more than six months, I can stay longer and I can prolong my visa. I want to get to know you better..... to learn more things about you, to touch your hand.. look in your eyes...

Lidiya Schkrjabina

Manager: Daria

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 Sunday, 1 flight and I will buy them before my intervew. People from embassy must be sure that I am not going to stay illegally, so I need to buy roundtrip tickets (with returning date). 
I wanted to ask you about electronic tickets but they tell that I can't use because it is their businees 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 980 US dollars from your side with all travel needs and living here till my flight! (I had 1180 dollars, but flight from Tomsk, opening visa, medical insurance and all travel needs costed about 800 dollars). 
For truth I didn`t expect I will need to buy roundtrip tickets, but now I see that its a very strict rule.

Please send it today by Western Union or Money Gram
I will write you details:

>> !!! <<

Send it to Russia, Lidiya Schkrjabina !!!!This is my full name!

Also I've got an advice to send you a scan copy of my passport in case you need to confirm my details.

This is my full name used in all official documents. They said this is all info you need.
But please for any case write down more info. The address where I'm staying:
kutuzovskiy prospekt street 10 - 17, post code (zip) 121248. 
I rent a small room In an apartment of an old policeman here, it's
cheaper then hotel.The address of the closest Western Union (or MoneyGram) here is:

"MOSCOWBANK" 121248, moscow, kutuzovskiy pr-t 5/3

I have some money but it's not enough to complete my trip.
Please send me 980 US dollars and I will complete my trip!
After it please write me all details about the transfer -

your FULL NAME and Money Transfer Control Number!!
I will call you as soon as I receive it.
When I receive the money I will pay for my trip and only then the embassy will put all final stamps on my documents.

You are already very special to me! 
Please when I come to you tell me more about you and your country!
