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

wildflower5550 is really a guy named Yuri. He has been scamming photos from the Russian dating site and using some of the models from, a Russian Mafia porn internet service. Let's say we find Yuri and castrate him. Maybe the he will know how it feels to have your emotions f****d with. I'd like to find the REAL girl in the pics he sent me. I'll bet she doesn't have a clue. How does it feel to know that a guy named Yuri was pulling your heart strings guys? As for me, I'd say it really sucks!

I'm sympathetic for those guys that were taken, what they must think of themselves when they 'get it' is worse than what the girl ever did. What makes a guy think that a twentysomething porn look-a-like chick is out there all alone and needs them, and their money? It really is a spell that they put on themselves. It's optomistic that there still some big hearts out there, and shitty that some hooker will put her cigarette out in it for a few bucks. The women, legit one's, that you will meet on the net have 6 tits, 3 teeth, 4 kids, smoke a carton a day, and are alone for a good reason not shown. Just look around Wallmart, Mc Donalds, and Taco bell. Good luck in future.

Almost fell for it but because I am so cheap when money was asked for I immediately investigated. My advice is to all men out there is to go to a ligitimate site if you want to hook up with a foreign girl.

This is the message I recieved by the way and I have seen it on the web with minor modifications. i.e. Natalia was once Natasha

Hello my friend Dave
I am so happy to see that you have decided to reply to my short email.
I hope all is fine and you're not too much surprised to see my letter.
I want you to know that I have only good intentions and I have no secrets.
The thing is that I will work in your country for three months or so
and I would like to meet a nice man to fall in love or just be closest friends.
I don't want to live in Russia because I have not any chances here,it is hardly
possible to explain from first time but
I want you to know my plans.I will work in some clinic as a dentist or as an
assistant (for the first time)
the agency that i am going through will suggest me some locations. It will be my
choice in the end as to what option to go for.
This way I will be able to earn some money and pay for all my expenses. I can
choose any city or town.
The agency will just help me to get visa and all the documents required for
travelling and will suggest some places
I can work in as I told you before.
My best friend last year met the man from
the USA when she worked
there for three months, too. She had two jobs. From morning till 4 pm she
worked in amusement park and after
it she worked as a waitress in some bar till midnight. She was very tired of
course but made very good money there.
It is special programm for young people who wants to work abroad and I think it
is the right way for me ,I am lost here,and I think that I am losing the best
time in my life. I am wasting it. I am not saying that Russia is bad, I just
that I will be better in a different country and It will be easier for me to get
a better job in a different country,
it will be easier to find the right man for me, my love! I would like to work in
the USA, Europe or some other good
country. I have many aims and I want to make my dreams a reality. I would like
to share my life with a right person
with the same aims as mine which are the love and care for the right person.
I think that I don't have the looks of Julia Roberts or Angelina Jolie but I
really hope to meet my prince and I am
sure that he will not be dissapointed when we meet in real life. These are my
plans for the future.
I think I am better to close this sort letter to you but I hope to receive an
answer from you.
Ah, I forgot to tell you that I am leaving Russia in about 2 weeks (I can't tell
you the exact information right
now) and I want to make sure that I found a man who waits for me there. I will
be working the whole day and I want
to find a man who will be spending his and mine leasure/free time together, so
we can know each other better this way.
If you're interested in meeting me then please email me back and let me know a
little more about you and send me your
photo. I will write more info about me in my next letter. I am writing to you
from my personal email box.( Please write
me back here. I will be checking it frequently to see if you replied or not. I
will be expecting your reply soon.

Kisses Natalia (this is my name by the way)

Well I am so happy to notice that someone has setup a blog on this smooth scammer. Her name from Maria in Omsk is nowadays Natalia Tchurbakowa from Yakutsk in Rusiia an industrial city. She is still a dentist and will ask you to fork out $700 for her airtickets as someone robbed her ticket money on the train while going to the travel agency, and later will ask you to give $2000 just to show the embassy officials that she has money for living expenses which she promises to return to you once the visa is approved.
