John to Irina

Hi, Irina,
I’m now having correspondence with a Russian woman. Can you please check her. Here is the text of the initial letters; the photos are attached.

Irina to John

Hello John,

I have received only pictures that I can't open. I forward them to you, please try to open there (save the pictures to your computer from her letters and then attach again)
Please, send her letters also. Just copy and paste, I think, that letters will be enough for checking.

Best regards,
Irina

John to Irina

Hi, I have forwarded her emails too, with pictures. They came up OK in my "Sent" box.
Thanks!

Letter 1:
Hi! I'm so happy to receive your reply! It was good to meet you on
dating site! You made my day! Why I chose you?
I found you at the site by chance. Telling from the beginning of the
story I know a woman who is on a dating site.
That profile wasn't mine, it was a profile of that woman, but she let me find
someone from the dating site from her profile.
I don't know how to use the site, so I found you by chance and wrote you.
I didn't know what will happen, I didn't know if you write me or not.
But I am glad that we met each other. I've never tried to find someone in Internet but
soon I will come to your country to work there, so I will have a work
visa and a permission to work. My friend worked in the USA somewhere near
Fort Lauderdale two years ago. She worked in amusement park from 11 am till
6 pm and from 7 pm till 3 am she worked in a bar. Of course she was always
tired but she made very good money! I think I can do it too! Now she is in
Europe, working for 3 months. She wrote me she liked to work in the USA better!
I want to find a man who can tell me about the life over there and
maybe of course something more then just a friend!!! I don't have a
boyfriend so I'm open and ready for new adventures!!!
I'm in Russia now, but soon I will leave Russia to make my trip so you
can forget about our distance.
I've never been abroad, only in the South of Russia, the Black Sea,
Sochi (where probably will be Olympic Games). I like warm climate ))
According to my visa I can work in your country for 3 months, I can
prolong it to 6 months if I want. After 6 months staying over there I
can go home or try to get a green card.
I think my level of English is not so bad, but still it is very
simple. I can't read philosophy books in English or business books)))
Anyway I want to improve my English while staying over there. I write
and speak English by myself. We have
Discovery channel here in English (my friend has cable TV, so I come
to watch it!). I like this channel so much! Very interesting!
I'm sending two pics, I hope you will like them. I will send more next
time. I live in small town here in Russia, and I decided to find someone by
Internet not to be alone when I make my trip. The life is different in
every country and I think it's hard to live there when you don't know
anybody. I can do some simple job as a waitress, or to work in some shop. And
later when I improve my English I want to find a better job!
I will start my trip from Moscow, I will go there to pass English
tests and have an interview. I think everything will be OK!
Working program helps me to get the visa, permission for work and
all travel documents and they will help me to get job. It's a special
program for young people who is not lazy and make some money.
Also they can settle me with another girls from Russia and Brazil who
came to work there too, it's very cheap.
Here I can earn only about 100-150$ a month to work from mornig till
late evening (my city is really small).
I think I can change my life and see many wonderful things and just
different life. I am full of plans and different dreams.
I am sure you will be not disappointed to meet me in real life!!!
I don't have a special plan or something like that for a new
relationship, I'm open to everything! I don't want to be an abuse for
you, if you don't want me as your woman, we can be just friends!
But I hope you'll like me and my photos!
I had a boyfriend, but it was nothing serious and we broke up one year
ago because he moved to Vladivostok.
OK, I will finish this email... I don't know what else I could write
you in my first email. Please reply to me
even if you don't like me, because you are the only man I am
responding to. If you don't like me I will continue my search. I hope
so much to receive your answer!!!
I hope we can have a nice communication by emails so I will know
somebody is waiting for me over there! Not so long time to wait for me,
really!!!
I hope you are my soulmate and we can match each other!
Tell me about yourself and the place where you live! And send me
photos! Sorry for being too talkative!!!
Please write me back here, I write you from my private email address
now.
Elena
Letter 2:
John, hello!!! Thanks for your reply so much!!! I hope soon I will be able to
come to your area by my birthday and we will meet each other!
This time I will write you more about myself. I think you should know
more about my life and my hobbies so you will know if we have any
common interests.
So you already know my first name Elena. My last name is Shvaleva.
I'm 27 years old, not that young I
suppose? My birthday is on 20 April. I'm 168 cm tall (5.6.) and 51 kg
weight (about 120 pounds, I'm not sure how much it is in pound but I'm
not fat which you can see from my photos!).
I don't know exactly my bust-waist-hips measurements, I
don't have a reason to measure it because I think it's OK and my body
is proportionate )) I take care of my body, I do aerobics three times
a week and two times a week I go to a swimming pool.
I have an older sister, you can see her with me on photos. She is 31
years old now.
She recently divorced and she had 4 years old daughter. Her husband
cheated on her.
We live with our parents in 3 room apartment.
The name of my city is Bratsk, it's near Irkutsk city. Bratsk is
quite small city unlike Irkutsk which is a large city, the main city in our
district.
Have you ever heard about the lake Baykal? It's near Irkutsk! It's the
deepest and cleanest lake
in the whole world. It's very beautiful!
I graduated from Irkutsk Humanitarian University two years ago,
the dance faculty. Yes, we have such faculty in Humanitarian
University! So I'm a professional dancer. I don't want to have a
dancer's career because I will have not much time for my private life
and for relationship with a man. I work as a dance teacher, I teach
children from 12 to 17 years how to dance! Also I have a certificate
of fitness instructor, this is my another hobby. So it would be
perfect if later I can find a work as a fitness instructor or teacher of
dances!!! I think it's a very good job for a woman, I'm always in a
good shape and I keep myself not that busy!
Do you know how to dance? If not I can teach you!
I can dance many different styles.
When I come to your city I will work as a waitress in a restaurant. I
would like to work as a
dance teacher but I think you understand it's not possible to arrange
such work by Internet because they want to see the level of my dancing.
Anyway I will try to find this kind of work when I come over there. Or maybe
not a dancer but aerobic( fitness) instructor, I think it's also very good job.
I'm sending few photos for you today! I hope you are not tired to look
at my photos?
First two pics were taken in Sochi (the Black Sea) last summer. The
next two pics were taken during New Year's holidays while we were
shopping for presents with my sister.
In winter I like skiing, although we have cold winters... our summers
are warm usually.
Mom is much younger then my father and they are very happy together. My
mother is a teacher of music in the school. I can play piano also, she
tought me to play piano. I finished music school and I still play
piano about once a week. My father is retired engineer.
I cannot say I enjoy one particular type of music. It might sound strange for you but
I can listen to almost everything. The list is endless actually. But anyway,
there are a couple of things I have always enjoyed to listen to.
They are Enigma and Deep Forest. I adore their music. It is so sensual and
helps relax a lot. I also like classic music, jazz, rock, lounge.
I want to try how to ride a motorcycle someday! I've never tried it!
By the way, do you have an International Airport in your city?
Please write me the name and the code of it.
Or write me the name of the nearest airport to you.
I write you my emails from Internet cafe, I don't have my own computer.
I suppose in few days I will leave for Moscow and start my trip!
There is no any messenger in this Cafe so we can only keep emailing
each other. I hope you are not getting bored to read my emails?
My address here is Russia, Bratsk, Gagarina 54 street, flat 6.
So now you know who I am....
I just can tell you that I enjoy life and I try to live to the
fullest, I like to try new things. I'm not that smart.. I was not that
good in mathematics, physics, biology and so on! But I'm very tender,
caring,
artistic, faithful, decent person.
Sometimes I can be not well organized, I think everybody had it's own
minuses and pluses.
I don't look for any special qualities in a man. I just hope he will be
faithful to me and ready to create a happy family with me and I will
do everything to make him happy. I'm looking for a soulmate!
OK... it's time to finish my email. I'm sending a kiss by the wind to
you and if I sent it to the right destination you should receive it by
evening )))) I hope you will catch my kiss somehow )))
By for now!!!
Yours,
Elena

Irina to John

Hello John,

She is a scammer.
All these letters are hips of lies!
1. There is no such a high school as Irkutsk Humanitarian University
2. There are faculties of modern dances but in some other places.
3. I can't imagine how an unmarried young girl from Russia could be given a visa to USA with working permission, and possibility later to take green card. Lie
4. There are no such salaries in Russia even if it is a small city- 100 -150 usd, especially for fitness instructor or a dance teacher. Nonsense.

I am sure that it is a scammer from Moscow. She will soon “arrive to Moscow, understand that the ticket to Moscow was really expensive and she has no money to continue her trip. She is waiting at the airport now and waiting for you to send her money. She will of course return money to you, she will work hard, day and night, but the money will be returned. Just send her now 1000-2000 usd.”
Best regards,
Irina

John to Irina

Irina,

Thanks for the confirmation of my suspicions. You are doing a real service to expose these fraudulent operators. They are very good at what they do!
