Lubov Bazhenova (Tumen City, Russia)My name is Joe and I am a widowed white American, 41 years old in South Carolina, and I work for the telephone company. I was contacted by "Luba" on matchmaker.com. She left a msg. with her email address for me to reply to which was [email protected] I replied, although I was skeptical. Within a few days of surfing the net, I came across this site and I found a Russian womans picture who had contacted me about 6 months ago and as the typical story goes, declared her undying love for me after 5-6 letters, and then wanted money immediately to come to me. I then was suspicious and refused to send money and she stopped contact. Well, after seeing this, I was definitely suspicious about this "Luba". So I asked her for a full name, address, and phone number. She replied with Lubov Bazhenova, 59, Lunacharskogo, 2, Tumen City, Russia, 625001 but of course she didnt have a phone, but wanted my phone number to call me. To make a long story short, when I got her full name, I came back to this site and I found this name along with several variations of it, and several different addresses, as well as totally different pictures of this person. Her story to me was exactly of the others on here, but some of the names of her family and friends were different. Of course there was this evil teacher at her university that was also stated in other letters I found on here. I also found her listed with six different "screen-names" on matchdoctor.com, and contacted them and she is now deleted. I also contacted fromru.com and they stated they had removed her name. I dont believe they did because I tried it again just to see, and it did go through. I found it funny that a lot of her letters to me were word for word identical to some posted on here. Sincerely, Joe C [email protected] letter after initial contact:

I know that our hearts will together always, because our love is eternal, this great feeling connects the another people and us through a continents. My dear, my love Joe, as it seems, this feeling which includes a three basic feelings. These feelings are a trust, careful attitude to each other, and complete understanding to each other, sometimes even understanding without words,do you agree with me my darling? But not looking on that love is very strong great feeling, it also is very fragile, realy my dear, because only one word or an not right action can destroy it and already anybody willnt can to restore this great feeling. Probably, you will think that a purpose of all my correspondence with you it is only desire to leave for America. Believe me my darling, it is not so my love, the fact in that when I began to write to you, I couldnt to believe what it is possible to fall in love through the Internet. I thank Internet that we found each other my darling. Only I have decided to try to do it and that from this it has turned out. We with you love each other very much and we should be together, because we cant withoiut each other my darling. I have learned much in the searches as we want to meet each other very much. My dear, I have a good news for us my darling Joe!!! My girlfriend Natasha have connected with her aunt Irina to Moscow at last.

Irina have called in embassy and there have said to her that it will be better for us with you, Joe, if I will have the visa of a tourist too. This visa will valid during six months. With this visa I can travel till USA without any restrictions. The price of the visa, as Irina was informed in embassy, is 155 US dollars. Besides the process of registration of the visa costs 60 US dollars. By the way Natashas aunt Irina as has taken an interest about other kinds of the visas too, as to her have said, that there is a set of kinds of the visas. For example, visa of a bride. Irina has thought that this visa of bride approaches to us, but her in embassy have said that this visa costs more expensively and its registration costs a lot of money. It is 490 dollars US and the registration of the visa will during 4 months, it is very long. From it because the tourist visa is better variant than visa of bride now for us my love Joe. My Joe, I want to ask you my dear, that you will help me with the money recourses on the documents. As probably you know an economic situation in our country, simply it is awful, and at our college dont give the salary to work personal during a long time. Our government explains it to those that they simply dont have money and they havnt a recourses on the salary for the teachers in total. By the way I ask you my dear send to me 305 dollars. It is certainly large money, you probably have thought what is it more than the cost of the visa. But I must have a recourses on the air plane ticket from Tyumen City to Moscow too the cost of which is 2720.50 russian rubles or it is 90 US dollars. By the way Natashas aunt Irina will find the prices of the air ticket for the fling to you too.
