It was then that I realized that I had been taken for a ride. I found your site, and there she is, large as life. I have most of the photos that you have, as well as some others. But there is no doubt that it is her, and that I have been scammed. Currently I am in the process of trying to recover the money, but I am not at all hopeful. Ill keep you posted. Anyone who has any tips on what I should do, other than give myself a good kick in the pants, please let me know. I am in the process of contacting the Russian authorities at the moment, but I am skeptical that I will see the money again. How many people are getting burned like me? I wonder....

Hi, my name is Katya. I live in Russia. I work as a tutor in a childrens day nursery. I love children and animals very much. I am 26 years old. I want to get acquainted with the man, who will be a support in my life. I agree to get acquainted with a man from 30 and older. For me age is not the main thing. The main thing is that there is love and mutual understanding! I do not notice a difference in ages. I hope only for my true love, and I hope very much that all with us will be good! I agree to answer all questions that interest you. I am anxious for your letters! PS: Please write me letters only to email@example.com
Hi, Michael. Im so pleased that you can understand my not so good English language, that I has learned in school and in College. Im 171 centimeters tall, my weight is 59 kg, I have medical education, Im a child nurse. I work in childrens hospital and I look after children. I live in the city Yoshkar-Ola. It is approximately in 850 kilometers from the Moscow city. I want to say you, that I love children very much. I have an experience of dialogue directly with Russian people, but they are not adapted, it is serious also. And they drink alcohol very frequently and it not so is pleasant to me. I think, that such habit is not a gift. I want to inform, that I do not smoke, and I do not drink strong drinks. But sometimes I like to drink in the good company a small glass of grape vine, though it happens very seldom. I want to say, that I am able well to play a piano, I have finished musical school, Ive studied for 6 years. I Want to inform, that I live with my mum. I have the father. My grandfather unfortunately has died, 7 years ago. I want to say, that I like various music, but mostly classical. I want to be serious. My relations with you are to find love and to create happy family. I will be pleased, if you want the same. I want to say, that I write to you from an office computer. Unfortunately I have no the computer at home. I hope, that it will not be a problem. I hope youll answer me soon. Yours, Katya.
...If things were to develop between us to the point that we wanted to make some sort of commitment, it would almost certainly mean that you would have to move to Australia to live. Have you thought about that. Its a long way from your family, and the way of life that you know. It would be hard for you to adjust I think. The question you need to ask yourself is "could I do that, "would I do that". I realize I am asking some very heavy questions of you, but I think it is best to consider these issues before trying to get any further in making a relationship with each other. You could come out and visit if you wanted. My house has spare rooms and the like that you could use if you wanted to make the trip. I even would have no problem if you wanted to bring a friend so that you felt safer. It might even be possible for me to help with the cost for you in getting out here, though I cant say right now the exact extent of that help...

Hello, Michael. My name is Lena. Im Kate close girlfriend. At me for you very bad news. I regret that to me to have to write about it, but with Katya there was a misfortune. The day before yesterday she went to make out the passport and visa in travelling company and on a return way has got in terrible failure. Now she to be in hospital. Last time she frequently spoke to me about you, therefore I shall forgive at you of the help. Katya very strongly has suffered, and now doctors are afraid for her life. She is in a heavy condition in reanimation, at her multiple crises, concussion of a brain..... She now in a unconscious condition. I shall tell directly - her the serious operation in Moscow is necessary which very dearly costs (it is necessary about 1100 USD). For us it is the very large money, and neither I, nor her relatives can not collect such sum for short terms. Excuse me, that I am addressed to you behind the help, but it is a unique chance to rescue her. Michael, with deepest excitement I wait for your answer. Lena
