Today I got this letter from Maria who supposedly lives near Omsk in Russia. It is a form letter as well, I can tell that much already, and I also post the photos.
She sent me an email from an account at, but by the time I got to read her email, her account was already closed. However, she had left me a yahoo email address ( which I briefly answered.

I received the following (form letter) answer, with 3 pictures - one of which you see here to the left, the other 2 are at the end of this posting:

How are you doing? I have to appologize in advance that
I cannot write you back at once because I don't have
a computer at home and I have to use an Internet cafe to write you. It i slocated not so far from my home.
First of all I'd like to thank you for responding me back
and I should be honest with you, I live in Russia.
I hope that doesn't scare you off. At least you can read my lettter up to the end and see if you want to
correspond with me or not. If you ask me why I put my profile not as Russian one, I will tell you. was adviced to me by a friend, but I will tell you about it later. Unfortunately when I started with
my profile, there was no country listed as Russia, so I wrote that I am not in Russia.
I didn't want to lie or something about the country I live in, I hope you understand.
Ok, I guess I have to tell you about myself. I live in a village named Beregovoy.
If you want to see my city on the map it located not far from big city Omsk.
I have never been to your country but still I like this country traditions, customs... You I see graduated the faculty of Foreign
Languages in a College for three years and I write you without translator.
Once when I was studying at the College I had a chance to talk with an English man, but this was the only person
I talked in English face to face.
If you are still intersted here is some more information about me:
Despite of the Autumn it is still pretty warm here ( about zero centigrades) though usually it is colder.
And what about you? Is it warm there or cold?
You know I feel very lonely here in Russia because I couldn't find the right man for myself.
I know that there is no ideal people and I don't rush into it but still I believe that there is a man that will love me
just for who I am, with all my advatages and disadvantages. I want to settle down and have a family of my own.
A friend of mine who adviced me also put her profile there and she found her real love there.
Now she lives with her husband and two kids are living in Germany, in province not far from Berlin.
Everybody wants to be happy and me too. I am not after money or sugar daddies or better life. Age difference is
also not important.
I am just an ordinary woman who wants to be happy. Maybe if I had family here in Russia I wouldn't even think to
write an American man, but I am an orphan and nothing keeps me to try to find love somewehere far from Russia.
My friends know about my idea and they support me and wish me oly happiness.

I guess you are interested in my likes and dislikes and etc:
- I am an orphan
- I work as a surgeon in a city hospital ( I graduated school, then I graduated College and
after that I got a diploma of a surgeon in Medical Academy) and you know I like my job, I like helping people and sometimes
safe their lives.
-I like almost all kinds of music but most of all I prefer Classical music and I hate rap.
-My favourite color os blue
-My favourite flowers are white lilies
-I love pets and anymals but unfortunately I spend too much time at work and that is why I have no possibility
to have a cat or a dog
- I am Christian and go to Church 2-4 times per month
- I have never been married and I have no kids
- I adore cooking and my fafourite food is Russian and Italian. My favourite dish is lasagna.
- I have a driving license but I have no car
- I like to go to cinemas and theatres but I don't like disco because it is very noisy there and it is always overcrowded.
- I don't smoke and I drink socially ( for example a glass of red wine)
- I don't have tattoos or piercings exept for my ears.
- I don't like winter but winters are usually cold in Russia

What else? I guess that is all for today. If you are really interested, please write me as soon as you can
I will reply to you. I hope you didn't get tired of my long e-mail, I just wanted you to have a better idea
of me. And you please write me more about yourself, your likes and dislikes, about the place you live in.
A couple of pictures of you would be very much appreciated.
Please write me back today or tomorrow.
Keep smiling!

Your new friend from Russia, Maria

look this letter thst I've received from this scammer on This website is full of scammers.. This is first ( and last ) email that she has written me. She uses this email address:

Hello Gino,

Thank you for writing to me.
i am sorry, i can't write to you every day, but I will try. I do not
have a computer at home and I go to the i-net cafe to write, but
sometimes I can come and it is all busy there and I have no time to
wait. I hope you will understand mwe, and won't be offended if not
receive my letter at once, but I will try.
But let me introduce myself as well.
I am Irina Baburina living in the Eastern part of Ukraine, Lugansk
I am here with serious intentions, and ask you to be always honest
with me and tell the truth and do not disappear unexpectedly. if you
do not like something tell me at once and we will talk about this.
I am not a woman looking for the bag wiht money. I am looking for love
with a serious man who can love and respect.
I was once hurt here and I am not going to experience that again. I
hope we will find a common language with each other.
I work as a teacher in the school, i finished it myself and now work
there, too. As you see we are collegues, but here the teachers earn
very little, as for me I earn 85 dollars per month.I have a master's degree
in the English language and literature, I can be a teacher in the
university but for this you need
much money, you need to pay for the place there, as my parents are
poor and live in the village, they couldn't pay for me and that is why
I teach at school for the miserable salary.
Here it is very hard to find a good job even if you are clever and can
do many things, you always need to pay for the place.

My parents live far from me, i see them very rare and that makes my
life even sadder.
I am a good cooker as I cook for myself and cooked for friends in the
uni and for my parents always.
Tell me more about you and intentions here in the I-net.Are you really
serious here?

She went by Natalia. Weird thing is, she just stopped writing. Said she was going to go her paper work, and get all her travel info, and I never heard from her again (*sniff* heh heh heh). I guess she must of just assumed I had no money when I told her I was a student, LOL!!!
Sure was ashame though, I was looking forward to tagging her.
Here's the photo's she sent me...

I was looking for Ukrainian consulate in New York City and the search engine showed me postings for scammers. I was amused to see that the girl on these pictures looks familiar to me. You know why?
Since I am from former Soviet Union myself (a female) I like to watch Russian movies. And I can bet this girl is a main character in Russian movie series 'Brigada' ('the brigade') that I watched only few months earlier. Exact copy!
Definitely a scam. They didn't expect Americans to know Russian actors.
