Ludmila Borisenko (Kiev, Ukraine) ([email protected]) Spasiba for allowing a forum to expose scammers! I wish I would have known about these tow before hand but hopefully someone else will benefit by reading your list.Ludmila wrote to me first from an advertisement I placed on in a USA based dating service. She was my first introduction to writing to women from another country. I liked her very much but after about a month she wrote the following....Letter
XXXX, my dear! I am awfully sorry I did not write you back right away as I have got your letter only today. I have troubles at work and I am very upset. I have never known all the aspects of the business of my company. I was just a secretary. But for the last time I have felt that something wrong was happening. As it was now clarified my firm had very unsuccessful one commercial operation and it had great losses. And as the result the firm became unable to pay back the bank credit and even to give the salary to its workers. I can not believe that it has happened with me. In one moment I became without a job. But it is not the worst thing. I cant find any other job anywhere. For several days I went to many organizations and I have understood that nobody needs me. Speaking about the labor social organization they pay the unemployment help in the amount of 3$ per month . But to have a normal everyday in our country I need 200$ USA per month. Where did that amount of 3$ come from? It is beyond my understanding. I am writing to you and the tears are running and running from my eyes. Where do all these tears come from? I have many familiar people whom I have considered being my friends. But nobody of them do not even try to help me in my difficult time. All of them only give the polite words and tell that they are very sorry . Im sitting alone in the empty flat and around me is the world of people totally strangers for me. How terrible is suddenly to realize that! It would be better to be laid off for ten times than get to know that my friends are selfish and impartial people. I did not treat them that way! I sincerely loved them and was ready to give everything to help them in their needs. Perhaps I have done something wrong. What have I done? I can not understand. This is not what I want to write to you. I wish to be with you as soon as possible. Im only hoping that this period will go soon. Dont forget that in spite of all the problems I love you. Your Ludmila.Next Letter
Thank you, my dear XXXXX, that you understand me. I feel warmth of your words in my soul and I want to bend my head on your chest and forget about everything. I have never seen such situations and it is very difficult for me to handle with it now. It looks like all the world is against me and I have to protect myself. I always thought that I am very strong, but I am not, only in this situation you can check what you cost. But I would better never see these problems. During last two days I did a lot of tings. I had 4 interviews and have one more today. But they dont say anything exact, only to come in a month. I try not to loose hope and belief in myself, or that all would be in vain. I cant imagine how you can help me now. I feel some shame to realize that I am not able to provide myself with the necessary things but I can understand it is not because of me. The only thing I need right now is some money to live on till I find a job. And I even dont know, if there is a way, you could send me money from the USA. Mother of my girlfriend works and lives in Great Britain and she told me that her mother sends money to her through Western Union. But I dont know, if there is such system in the USA. May be you will try to know something by yourself. I wish you happy Thanksgiving. I hope you to spend it well. It is always pleasant to have several days off more to spend them with people you love and care. Its so wonderful to celebrate the holiday at home. I know that GOD is very merciful and always gives us everything the best to our hearts and minds. And certainly we should thank the GOD for everything bad and good that had happened with us this year. We have no special holiday but I think that we must thank Him every day of our life but not only in some definite day of the year. Its very good that you have such a day and Id like to be with you this day ,to bestow smiles on and all my heart Lately I fell so much love inside myself .Im waiting for my best time and I believe that there will be the holiday at my home. Thank you for poem of Hope you sent to me! This poem is like water of life, as it is true now. I hope I can be happy! You are all I think about I don`t know what to do than just waite and pray. It is wonderful to hear that youll be able to come in December. At last Ill be able to speak to you and see you in reality. Write, please, what you have known about it. I will wait for reply. With love, kisses and hug Ludmila.What could I do, I really did like her so I sent the money....Letter
My dearest XXXXX! I am very thankful to you for your help. Today I went to the bank and received the money with no problem. It is very pleasant to feel your care to me. I forgot about the problems for a while and I thought only about you. When I came back home, I bought flowers for me from you and imagined as they are presented by you. I wonder, how flower make the mood better. Thank you that you exist in this world and thanks to God that I met you. I also bought a big cake for 1,5 kg and a bottle of Sprite and half of these tasty thing has disappeared in a half of an hour. I made a holiday for me, but unfortunately alone. Lonely holiday it is a little bit sad, but it is such a happiness to think of you and to know that you take care after me. Thank you for not leaving me in my hard time. Frankly speaking I dont know what I would do without your help. I also called to parents today and said that they shouldnt worry about me and I have money right now. My mum asked to thank you from her, she is happy that I have someone who takes care about me. Though I feel not very comfortable in this situation, I would like to take care of me by myself. As I always did it. But I love you and I cant refuse your care and I am not in that situation now to be independent. Actually all women are weak and want they were loved and spoiled. I must be also only a weak women. What would I do without you! I cant even imagine. I am glad that youve found the song of Anni Lorak, I even didnt doubt that youd like it. I promise you to sing this song by myself when you come. Do you want it? I hope yes! You wonder how my friends call me?! Frankly speaking, differently: Ludanka, Lusinda, Lusya, Lusia, Lusi. My mother always calls me Ludochka and my father - simply Luda. You may call me whatever you like. I let you do it. Of course, Ill be glad to see you at the end of December myself but a month ago I promised my parents to come to see them on New Years Day and Christmas. So it would be better if you came at the end of January. And it would be better if you stayed at my place, not in a hotel. In such a way well spend more time together. After the weekend Ill go to the embassy to learn what invitation letter I should write to you and then inform you. I wish you good luck in studying of the Russian language and if anything is not clear just ask me, Ill be glad to explain everything to you. In general I like that you are doing it, it proves once more that you love me. I believe as you do my love. That we will meet and be very happy together. Well be in love from the moment we meet. A love that will be so real so pure and ever lasting. It will be strong when we meet and will be inseparable once we do. My heart has grown from meeting you and getting to know you. My mind wants to be one with you as does my body and soul. My best and warmest regards and thanks you. Always your, Ludmila. P.S. I scanned a photo for you and I am sending it in this letter. Its the best photo I found and hope youll like it.Ludmila did write further and did not ask for money but then she made a mistake. She sent the same letter to me as she did to some guy named Brian
My dearest Brian!Thank you very much for your letters. I wish that you could be here with me instead of my having to write you. I havent seen your CD yet. Here in the cafe they said that it is not allowed to put other discs because it is possible to catch a virus. I thought it is possible to listen to them on a simple CD player but if they are computer ones I dont know where Ill find the computer to watch them. But it is interesting for me what you made on the disc for me.The weather here is turning colder now and they are calling for snow and I think of how much fun we could have making snow angles outside and then coming in to cuddle with each other to warm up. I wish you all the joy in the world for the coming holiday season but I do wish that we could spend it together maybe next year. It is my pain now as I see for myself the only happy way of meeting his, to meet his with YOU. Dear, how many times how many years I meet New Year without YOU. Those were merry celebratings and not much, with parents, with friends, with classmates and students with whom I studied at the Institute and how much now I want nobody but YOU by my side in this great holiday as the New Year will open for me another page of my life, my life with YOU. I hope you spend this great holiday in the warm surrounding of your friends among joyful and friendly smiles. I wish you special celebration for the special Year! I will miss your warm and tender words. How I wish we were together these holidays! I am keeping you in my mind every moment. For the new year I want to give you a toast - To us and our love, may it last forever. With love , Your LudmilaHeres what she wrote me 1 minute after Brian.
MY LOVING XXXX!Thank you very much for your letter. I wish that you could be here with me instead of my having to write you. You wrote correctly how Christmas sounds in Russian. The only thing is that I cant hear if you pronounce it all right. Concerning our traditions there is nothing special about Christmas. We only prepare special dishes. There must be twelve of them. And as I have told you earlier they sing chorales. But mostly children do it. They are given sweets or money. Adults never sing chorales. Though in the old times the youth also sang chorales in the villages.It would be wonderful if you liked our cuisine. The most famous dish here is borsch but I am not sure if youll appreciate it. One has to get accustomed to it from childhood. Besides it is not easy to cook it. I should tell you that marriages in our country are not always successful also. In general people marry and then part in a year. I dont want such a family. If I decide to marry it will be forever. I am adult enough to let make mistakes. The weather here is turning colder now and they are calling for snow and I think of how much fun we could have making snow angles outside and then coming in to cuddle with each other to warm up. I wish you all the joy in the world for the coming holiday season but I do wish that we could spend it together maybe next year. It is my pain now as I see for myself the only happy way of meeting his, to meet his with YOU. Dear, how many times how many years I meet New Year without YOU. Those were merry celebratings and not much, with parents, with friends, with classmates and students with whom I studied at the Institute and how much now I want nobody but YOU by my side in this great holiday as the New Year will open for me another page of my life, my life with YOU. I hope you spend this great holiday in the warm surrounding of your friends among joyful and friendly smiles. I wish you special celebration for the special Year! I will miss your warm and tender words. How I wish we were together these holidays! I am keeping you in my mind every moment. For the new year I want to give you a toast - To us and our love, may it last forever. With love , Your LudmilaI found another woman that seemed to be nice on a Russian based dating agency. After a short correspondance...Yulya Borisovna (Kremenchug, Ukraine)Letter
Dear XXXXX! I liked Ur thoughts as for mutual understanding. We should know each other better, to understand each other further. And to support in everything. I hope well be a nice couple.! I also liked U appearance. U know even the girl, siting by the computer, who saw Ur pic. by chance, couldnt look at U without attention! She also smiled that I was looking at U so attentively. I am glad that U are so impatient in learning Russian! I do not excuse you for so short letter, as we should keep correspondence, its the only way to find out each others sensations, ambitions. I do not want to have a fun, just to be satisfied with some lines. I want to feel you, your inner world, to read between lines of your advantages, and disadvantages. Its hard for me to express my feelings now as I have so much to ask you and do not know your details of childhood, mature years. Do you think that you are in mature age, or just feel the childish behavior, which is still sitting inside you? Sometimes I can behave like a child, sometimes like a mature woman, when life demands urgent serious decisions, but on the whole I adore to have a fun with my close people. I am looking at your picture and do not believe that you are on this Earth. I thought men arent concerned with females problems. But you showed that you are seriously interested in me and even intend to help me in it. Your action shows your attitude to me. I cant believe. Are you really serious? Write me it for me to trust, I cant help believing somebody, but among my surrounding theres nobody to rely on. I wait eagerly for your pictures more. MAy you send me some from your childhood? If I choose a man, it means he should be trustworthy as hell be the head of my family, my Dad is the real classic for me in it and Ill have the same husband. I dont mean that my match should be the same as my Dad, but he should obtain the some family values - to be family-oriented, Robert, to live children and always to take care of them, to love wife and respect her , to come after work and spend funny gay evenings in romantic surrounding. What you think of it? Are you that one? Do be frank with me! You know yesterday my FAther came in the evening in bad mood, but we didnt harden the condition and atmosphere, I and Mom just tried to help him tell us what was wrong and to proposed to relax with us in living room, watching TV. At first he didnt have any mood, then started to calm down and ten we altogether were laughing at some joke some hour later. Thats what I want to say of - theres the example of ordinary family, thats what Im looking for! You understand now? I am aften thinking of my own life, Ill stay alone and will not be happy anymore, I need the person to live with me, to follow me, to be followed . So if I decide to move to you, itll be definite, and Ill do it, as from your letters I want to hope that you are the man, I need. My parents give their regards also. Today I helped them about hose, and came to Internet-cafe, I have only an hour to write a letter, as have to go to work and then translator print it , and in the evening sends. You get it only in the evening. So check your box at about... what is time difference, XXXXX? So you see how many hampers between people, lets not think of them and then everything will be OK. YoursLetter
Dear XXXXX! I am touched with Ur words at the beginning! And U are very romantic in the middle of the letter! If only you knew how glad I am to get your letter. Its so pleasant to hear that you are interested to continue our correspondence. You know, in my heart the spark of hope has lit and I didnt believe that the men are interested in mutual understanding and spiritual communication. Our men look for the satisfaction of their needs and desires only and drugs and other affairs. But in you I felt some special male charm. It keeps me warm. Beauty , outlooks doesnt mean much for me. I value soul traits, I like kind ,loving hearts. And what do you value the person and female? I do not know what about you, but Im tired of loneliness. I want to obtain the Love, where will never be end and will only be love, care, tenderness and kindness. Ive never had any sisters and brothers. I sometimes missed somewone beside me. Ill try to write you what I am thinking of our future. Its very enchanting to think of it and imaginative, though everything is in reality. I see it very marvelous, and you? Do you think that itll be extraordinary? I always see us young, full of energy. There are no sorrows and no troubles As for the man of my dream, strong body is my weak point. Its great I think a man should be fit and keep his shape all the time, though its not very important for me, if I love a person. In future all men are not as nice as they were in their youth, but even if you will be ugly for all people, which is very doubtful for me, itll be of no matter for me, as Ull be the best for me. My parents already know about you. They will welcome my actions, whatever they be, and your close people? What they say? My Mom was especially interested in you and she asked me many questions of you. Dear XXXX! I do not have anybody to tell my thoughts to. I liked Ur thoughts as for mutual understanding. We should know each other better, to understand each other further. And to support in everything. I hope well be a nice couple. Dear! I want to tell you of my life. Im 23, work as a nurse in hospital. I live with my parents, now they help me financially and morally. Frankly speaking on the whole I like compliments as everybody, but I should know that you say them very sincerely. That you are not writing the same words to many women at once. Dear! We need to write each other more and more to know better. But the Internet-Club I go to, charges 100 USD per month. Thats all I have to pay, it includes all services, all I have to do is to come and write you a letter. You know, as for the regular mail, its impossible. I thought it over, but our delivery works very slowly. If I send you the letter , youll get it in 3 weeks or later. In addition the translation services in our town and country are high, so itll be much cheaper to use Internet-Club. They charge less in total sum. I accounted everything. You see, I need your help in continuing our correspondence. Will you be so kind to pay for it? I cant afford it to me. My parents are old and in addition they help me with money from their pension, they are retired. I do not have any other source. I DO NOT HAVE ANYBODY TO HELP ME EXCEPT YOU. You are my only hope. Dear! I wonder if U are able to help us in our correspondence, XXXXX. Ill be waiting for your reply with great impatience. Yours JulyaLetter

Ur letters a re so tender and wonderful that U make my soul warm and give me the hope to have a better life ahead. XXXXX!

Dear! U asked me if I do believe in a fate, yes, I belive in fate, and despite the fact that thousands of kilometers separate us, I want to dream of U and want my dream to come true. My favorite sport is a figure-skating. I also like pets, and especially dogs, I always wanted to have a dog, but as our flat ids very small, my parents didnt let me take it. XXXXX! I am very thankful to U fro Ur financial support in our correspondence. Now I know that you are serious to me and I can feel safe with you. I had a dream to have a prince on the white horse, who would love me and would make everything possible to protect, support me, create a strong family and clear all dark clouds from skyline off to prevent anything,XXXXXX, which may hamper our love and relationships. You know last years I didnt believe that I might meet such an avatar of my dream. But this time I even was surprised to see that there is a man which doesnt stop against any difficulties in love. I didnt believe in real love earlier. Now I cant believe in your existence as Ive never faced such an attention, treatment. I like that you want to continue our correspondence. Dear! I want to find my Love, my only man so much ! I dream to create a real strong family where Love, mutual understanding and tender warmth will always cherish.So you may send the money through Western Union on my full name - I give
