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

I had a feeling this was a scam, so I led these people on for a lirttle while. Then, I dropped the idea that I was interesting in working for the FBI, after I finish college. The e-mails stopped overnight, I guess they got freaked out, and figured somebody was actually on to them. It's a good way to screw with these damn people, make them feel paranoid. It really sucks people are out there doing this crap.

Damn.. I feel stupid. She is going by Liubow Bylinkina now. 28 y/o from Sajanska Russia. Told me her birthday was 5/29. I knew in my gut that something was wrong with this. I'm just glad I kept my e-mails as vague as possible. She never asked for money, but I think I found this site before she could. Thanks for starting this. I'll add another picture to the list.

Hi Guys, geez this sounds really depressing. I found a really sweet russian girl. orphan, teacher, loves to dream and she always thinks of me. I feel really bad posting it here cos I want to believe she is real. I'm waiting for a phone number but no reply yet. Anyone knows of any girl in Cheboskary, ancient city of Chuvasia, Russia. internet cafe is too far from home? She can cook well and friends make her happy? She rents an apartment alone? Lives on 8000 rubles? Give me some of the names your'll came across that may have been hoax. Im about 6 e-mails in but no money asked yet.

Anon US,No need to post more pic's.The girl in the one you posted is a Russian actress by the name of Ekaterina Guseva.If you want to check google the name and go to her web-site.There's also a couple of threads here with link's to it.More important to add is 'her'full name,e-maol addy and home add if you have it or at least the city 'she'claims to be from.Also a full header from one of the letter's so the IP addy can be read.And don't feel stupid! You're not alone in this as you can see.

Anon SA,Can you post more info? Many say they are from Cheboksary so that isn't really much help.If you don't want to post any name or e-mail addy yet,just post a full header from a letter and edit all of that out.The IP addy and if there's an X-mailer will indicate to those who know what to look for on the probabilitie of her being a scammer.
You ARE HERE though so what brought you here?
