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

Hi guys,

I have read many of the letters in this site. I was exchanging e-mail with Anna Deryabina and is a 'head doctor' since December 2005. I to was suspicious of her after a month when I discovered a picture of her with blonde hair. I kept writing to her into the last of April or first part of May when I found her pictures (same as I received as some above). At first I asked her if she ever had blonde hair. she replied 'no the black hair is her natural color'. The pictures are the same as her with the red roses in her office, a couple from the same beach shoot with her friends, the two in the flower field, etc. She never directly asked for any money yet. I think it was the last of April I wrote a very disapointed and sad letter asking who she really was as I had discovered her letters and pictures with I think 10 different names. I had one e-mail after that which said she was telling me only the truth and that her pictures must have been stollen. Her e-mail was maybe it still is?? Ha Ha. Also I received the passport picture and the picture with the two guys are her brothers. I was so upset that I have now deleted her pictures from my comuter. In addition to the black hair, some of the blonde above could also be my Anna who always sent a poem at the end of her letters. Also, she liked to capitalize most of the words in her e-mails.

Yes, I'm serious. After the 12th round of the Prom draft many years ago, I went undrafted. I even went undrafted by the Asian and European ball clubs. So when I got an email from Oksana, I felt like a non-miser for a while. Back to being to Earth tones.

great site. I was suspicious but now totally confirmed the scam. I recieved an almost identical letter as follows:

you ask, where I live - to To regret
it is far from you. Otherwise it was not necessary for us much e-mail,
To learn each other. I for the first time have acquaintance through
the Internet. It was very difficult to me to place my structure in a
service of acquaintances, because I am in Russia, the service of
acquaintances does not accept the members from this country. I had to
specify in a structure, that I am in USA. In this letter I shall
inform you a little information myself and if the dialogue with me
will be interesting to you, I shall tell about myself in more detail
in the following letters. I live in an average part of Russia, in city
Omsk. But if we shall decide to meet, I hope, that it not Will be a
problem for us because I have made a little Travel to other countries.
I was in the several countries of Europe; For example Turkey, Italy,
Germany. I made these travel as The tourist. Therefore, you
should not have excitement be relative That we not beside. I such
woman, that if I shall like The person for a meeting I shall reach
even on the moon. Besides in Our days is not a problem to make such
travel. I not I worry about it and I have necessary feelings to get
acquainted and it is possible To have relations with the person of
other state. It is very interesting - Other culture, thinking,
traditions. For me this new- Probably and you Robert Can learn , that
such the Russian woman. I wait for yours e-mail, my American friend.

Yours Lena .
