Pictures of some pretty woman (sigh): This scam rang a few bells in my mind. #1 It progressed at a rapid pace in the letters. #2 There are hardship spots in the letters that are begging for you to ask the question, What can I do to help? #3 The reply letters did not address my responses, except for a tiny bit of p.s. at the bottom, so I was more suspicious. #4 Finally the last letter seems very strong and the first hint of money is mentioned $280 for tourist visa. #5 These are the exact letters from previous scammers listed here, final nail in the coffin. #6 I was very paranoid from the "get go" I am glad I am not out anything besides some "hope" and a little less "trust" for the next time. If it was not for this site and the "Black List" I might have been taken for far longer, or even have sent some money.One thing is strange about the girl in the photo. In my last email, I specifically asked to see a picture of her with her parents. The last email I received before finding out it was a fraud contained her picture with two elderly people. This picture nearly convinced me she was real. I am very glad for your website, I plan on working through your website in hopes of finding a Russian woman who will like me. Thank you very much for having such a wonderful and informative website.Chris

I think that you understand that main purpose in my life is to find that unique, my heart with which I can go through all of life together to meet pleasure, occurrence of children, to grow them to surround with care to present them happy childhood, so, I dream of it!!! I think that you understand me and your vital purposes are similar to mine and I in shower hope that sometimes our hearts are meet. I want to inform you a little about my life. As you know I work by the seller-consultant in a tradehouse. I wake up at 7 o clock a.m. prepare myself breakfast. At every morning I eat a sandwich and I drink coffee. Then I meal on job. I meal by the bus. Sometimes there are very many people on a stop and I can not get in the bus and I have to go on foot. Generally I like of walk, but I like of slow walk when it is not necessary where to hurry up, to pass on familiar to streets to go to the girlfriends in the visitors to sit and drink tea to talk. I like to be in company of the good friends. With them it is possible to decide any problems, to ivide(share) pleasures. Always its pleasant to surprise the friends, to see at their reaction. How Ill live without the friends? I work from 8 oclock morning and till 6 evening. My job on the one hand interesting, but difficult. At us the very bad chief, he constantly swears. It is very unpleasant. But I always like to work and irrespective of my mood I should on 100 be given back to job. The job made with love brings pleasure to the people. I am always pleasant to see the smile on a persons of our visitors. In the evening I go in the Internet-cafe to look the mail, but it sometimes not works, therefore if Ill write to you in current of one - two days dont worry necessarily Ill write to you as there will be an opportunity. A day off at me Saturday and Sunday. In target I like to read the books, to go for a walk along my city, to visit a cinema. Except for that in days off a lot of time I spend on home jobs. I like to prepare houses, I like to please close preparing them any tasty things. In the afternoon in target I am cleaned at home, I like when the order of a house. I do not like when are scattered thing, lays on shelfs dust, the dirty linen in to basket,in a bowl not we utensils, you agree with me lays? We owe to trust one another, because without trust it is impossible to live. I earlier too have trusted in the person and he has deceived me. I want to tell to you about it I was madly in love with the person, and he pretended that he likes me. Actually he scoffed at my feelings. There was such, that he nominated to me meetings, promised to come to me, I waited for him, and he did not occur. Sometimes I cried, because he did not come in the evening, at us in city in the evening I am not so quiet also worried for him. And he, came in day or through two and spoke, that he has businesses and that he likes me. And then I have found out through his friends, that at this time he had a good time with what that by the maidens. He did not like to work, he often borrowed(occupied) from me money, promised to give back, but never returned the debts. And I forgave him, because liked. I even hid it from the mom. Some time has passed and I have seen him in the street with other woman. They were kissed. I did not remember as has come home. I cried all night. I had depression very much long. I began much to work and began to overlook(forget) this villain. After that case I have decided, that Ill never deceive the in love people, I shall never scoff and to play by feelings other people. Further I have decided that I shall search for the kind person to have family and children. This person should be more senior than me, that he could learn me and my future children. Ill ask to tell you about that as you spend the day, than you are engaged, what is your hobby??Tell to me about the friends, about native. I with impatience wait for yours next letter, your letters for me as a beam of the sun among day. Your letters heat to me to shower. Today since morning bad weather, blows strong cold wind, mood bad and only idea about volume that Ill see your letter warms me this day. I want to tell you about childhood. I was born on June 1, 1974. The mother and father very much liked me and brought up me rather strictly. But I am grateful to them for it. I had many friends and we with them played in a court yard ours at home. It were the carefree years, we lived and we did not have those problems which have appeared when I has grown. I studied at school on good and perfectly. I always remember my first teacher, she has opened for us a door in knowledge and due to her I can freely communicate with the people. I am indefinite Is grateful to her for that feeling of human kindness that she to all of us has imparted. As I grew at me the outlook I varied opened for itself very much. There were also tragical the moments in my childhood. Once we with the parents were on a beach and I saw as the boy has sunk. He athed at the large waves, the large wave on him and he could not come up, has choked and has gone. My father has rushed in the sea behind him, has pulled out him, but already than it was impossible to help, he was already dead. It was made on me by(with) such impression and I some days cried. It was very a pity. Even now, after there are years, he to dream a lot of me and at me from eyes flow tears. Ours boys were cheerful, they sometimes offended us, but made it nor for evil and we with girlfriends on them not hardly took offence. But in due course our boys, as well as all the mans population of Russia, have begun to drink, to smoke, many have begun to steal and then have got in prison. But I do not condemn them because the realities of our Russian life are those. And with girlfriends we up to this time we are friends and sometimes we meet we talk, we listen to music. I like various music. Sometimes, when I have a good mood I listen dancing music, and when I am sad I like to listen to slow music. I think that with each letter between us there is something greater than friendship. We begin more to trust one another, we become more frank, you agree with me? I think that our showers approach. On it all I should go home. Yours close friend....Maria. p.s. I know as to play a guitar. But I play as beginning. I like serious music. I listen Led Zeppelin sometimes. My favorite is "Baby Im gonna leave you".
Hi my liked friend!!! I am very glad to receive your letter. I hope that you can understand my letters. Today at us solar weather and it is very wonderful.Today I worked and had The conflict to my boss. He has shouted at me and I was upset, I all day went with bad mood. But it that at me is pleasure in life it is yours letters. Yesterday with me there was a unpleasant case. I went for a walk in the evening with my dog and any unfamiliar people stuck to me. I have cried, but nobody has come to the aid. Only mine correct Poborol was threw over them. They were frightened and have escaped. I have gone home and has told to all parents, they have begun to calm me but I all night could not fall asleep, I was in a shock. Today I went in church and only there to me became quiet. I Ortodox christian and always I go in church. Our churches very beautiful, walls and ceilings are ornamented by icons, candles everywhere cost(stand). In church so quietly and there I always I find a peace of mind. To me to like to listen as sing songs, as the church employees read Prays. I like your letters, when I read them I feel as we approach. We are far apart. But it does not prevent our dialogue. Though I already thought, that it is absolutely enough of dialogue through the Internet not to understand each other more strongly. What you think of it? I would like to see you not only on a photo. But I not I know as it probably, because we very much far apart. I liked you and I think that our attitudes(relations) can be deeper. I do not know as to explain it by words. I simply feel it. Your letters do(make) my mood high. It becomes joyful on soul to me. I want to ask you to write to me your address, I am possible I shall write to you the letter. I do not remember you wrote whether or not, I can not save your letters, because them can to read somebody another. My address Russia Kaliningrad, 236001 Yaltinskaya steet, 34-15But I think that it is not necessary to write to me because can steal the letter, and would not be desirable for me that someone knew about that about what we with you we think. I hope you understand me. I shall wait your letters and I hope that you will write to me soon. I think that sometime we shall meet. I would like to arrive to America, to meet with you to see as you live. I want it because I begin to understand that between us there is something greater than the friendship seems to me what is it feeling trust to each other, it seems what is it love, you seem that to me too feel it. I wait for your answer, it is very important to me to know that you think of that that I have written. Take Care & God Bless. Maria. p.s. Yes I can see your foto. You are VERY athletic.
