Dating scam from Kazan, Russia - Part 1

I would like to warn fellow males from a scam artist, located in Russia.

Click to see more..
I had a profile posted on an American dating web site and a female from my area answered me. Her letter was a few lines long, in good English and she seemed honest and cute, so I replied.

The letter said she had a read-only trial account and would not be able to receive messages, so she included a yahoo email address. She asked me to write to this yahoo email address. I did this and a few days later her trial account was gone, she explained that she deleted it because she found me. (that is what she answered, when I asked her about it)

This girl claimed to live in Kazan, Tartastan, 26 years old and called herself Barbi.
There was something suspicious about her letters, in particular I always had the
impression that she did not really read mine every time. Sometimes she wrote
personal, matching replies, then sometimes not. her photos of which she sent
about 25 so far, had number like 5.jpg, 6.jpg, 35.jpg etc.

Yesterday I did a query for some phrases of some of her emails and found them
posted on 2 other web sites. Apparently she wrote identical letters to other guys
using different names and different pictures. She or he asked those guys for money,
supposedly for tickets or visa paperwork. I guess I am lucky that she never asked
me for any money. However, I felt fooled when I saw "my" emails had also been
sent in parts to other guys.

For that reason I will post her here letters. I know that parts of these letters
have been posted on 2 other sites, but not all.
I include the full headers in the first email. The sender comes from a russian
dial-up but in another email I sent her a URL to one of my web sites and apparantly
"she" uses some sort of satellite DSL for the downstream, the IP number was
84.xx (to be filled in later).

Sorry about that, she told me her name was Elmira, I was just using the name he was using. Eventually she will know I know. I have been sending her pictures saying that I like this one and that one when she has not sent them to me yet. On her behalf though I do have to say that she is awefully polite. I am running out of ways to try to explain to her that I know without actually telling her. I am thinking of accidentally pasting one of the web sites in an E-mail. I have called her by the other names she uses. Signed the names of other people she has scammed or tried to scam. She said she will not be able to access a computer this week so I am thinking of asking her where she went on vacation with the money she/he got from scamming people.

Thank you, that you have answered to me. I was very glad to receive your letter.
And if to speak that is fairly I very much waited for it, Haaland. Now I wish to inform a
little on myself directly that I have not written in the personnel. As you already know my name is
Natalya (my friends and parents often name me Natasha or Nata is in abbreviated form
and it is funny). I am from Russia. My city is named Naberezhnye Chelny. It is not so far
from Moscow - capitals of Russia, as is in the European part of the country.
My growth of 168 sm, weight of 55 kg. I send you my photo that you could consider
Me. I am 25 years and I recently have finished the economic education. Now I work in
small shop also I conduct its accounts department. My work is similar to me because I love
clearness and confidence of all. Yes it can and is too dry for the young girl, but it is better
that there was a confidence of next day and the most important confidence of.
I love the work, but it is not for me meaning of the life. Career for me not the main thing.
My dream to create family and to have children. You ask why I do not search for the happiness
in the country? The answer is simple. I respect with foreign men and I consider that they more
appreciate the woman and family. Them vital needs are much more extensive.
I have no brothers and sisters, but I have cousines and cousins. I live separately from the parents.
At my place there is no computer and therefore I use the Internet-cafe. But it not problem for
That to write to you letters. I listen to classical music and I love theatre. It does not limit
my interests and consequently I with satisfaction can have a good time on a party with girlfriends.
I do not have idols, but I trust in the God (I am Christian Ortodox). I visit chirch on a regular basis,
but I like to sing together with chorus on Sundays. My life not full of events and
at the same time not boring. My favorite in sports is aerobics and figure skating.
It is possible for you to ask some questions? I very much would like to learn about you more and consequently
I am sorry for persistence. What your hobbies also what involves you in a life? That
for you the main thing in attitudes between people? You love sports? I Hope that you will not be limited
these questions also will write to me more about itself, satisfying thirst of my interest.
Now I must finish the letter. I hope to receive your answer soon.

Your new friend Natalya.

PS: Age is not wall between us. Age - is expirience!

Hey guys, this is a great, helpful forum. I have been getting letters from to different gals,
One first name Irina and one Lana. I see alot of similarities and I read their emails carefully.
Some appear form letters, some are written to me with my name sprinkled in between.
So far, they have not asked for money and have sent pictures. They both say the men in Russia are drunks and do not take care of their wives or children when I ask them why they are on the internet.

I keep stringing them along too and if they pull the trigger on asking for money. I will stop communicating with them.

I would have to say Alla is a scam. If it seems to good to be true, mostlikely it is. The one thing that you should notice is that she is posing as if it were for a magazine.
