Claimed to find victims' post/profile on craig'slist but cant produce it.
Claims to not have access to phone or IM of any kind.
Therefore all communication is doen through email.
Very convincing but was never quite sure if she was real or scammer since early on she claimed to be financially comfortable and independent. Was going to have a vacation and due to her position as a doctor, was able to get visa to the US. Ran into a problem with funds for the plane fare.
I strung her along from 9/4/10 to 10/19, when she revealed her true agenda.
Other posts have the same beginning letters, here is one a little more advanced...
Hi, my far, but dear friend XXXXX.
Many thanks for your letter. It was the long-awaited letter.
I am really madly glad to receive your letter. I am really glad that
I have found you. I want to tell you today so much.
Today I wanted to say just the right things to you. I didn't want to
offend or upset you in anyway, and it really bothered me that saying
something wrong may do that. I always speak directly from my heart but
sometimes, words must be chosen carefully. I feel somewhat lost when
I have no opportunity to use a computer to read your letter. In my soul,
I feel contentment and joy when I think of you. I have never done this in
my life, (tried to initiate a relationship halfway across the world), but
I am more than willing to learn whatever is need to succeed, if it is your
desire as well. I also believe that couples should be the best friends,
which trust and share with each other everything that they feel.
I don't know if my word and thoughts make sense to you; and for me so hard
to put them in typed words that you will feel and understand. I believe
in God, and I believe that I have been put through trials to be ready for
meeting a man with whom I will spend the rest of my life in loving, to
better value him, respect him and cherish the love that he would give me;
only asking that I return the same. I hope that my words and letters are
not boring to you, but they are much more than mere words, they are my
thoughts and feelings, and I send them out to you. I wish to know you on
the more intimate level, I would like you to share your true dreams, your
hopes, your feelings of the heart with me, I truly wish to connect with
you on a level that goes way beyond simply friendship. Please don't think
that I am fool for thinking these things, I believe that to succeed in
anything, you have to be honest, and that is what I am doing with you.
Could you seriously close your eyes for just a minute, and think and dream
of what a life we could share, what it would be like,- the fun of learning
each other. I really believe that dreams really come true for the people
that dare to believe in dreams, because if they believe in them enough
hard, dreams could become in reality. Here, where I was raised, the gift
of true love from a man is something that is more similar to a Mirage
or self-deception, rather than mutual feeling which two enamored people
can give each other. I hope that I am not rambling on with my words.
I have so much that I wish to share with you, and each time I write to you,
I feel there is never enough time to say everything that I want to say,
and I always feel that I have forgotten something important that I wanted
to share with you. XXXX, I want to tell that you are very beautiful
for me. I mean the beauty that is within you, beauty of your internal world.
It is a type of beauty that is very special and rare. Most men have only
appearances, but not have beauty inside, and this is where true beauty is.
This is what for me is the most important and significant in all limits
of my character, my soul and my consciousness. I think that you are truly
handsome, in the sence of what beauty should be. I want to reduce essence
of my entire letter only to one thought. I don't know if I could clearly
explain all my thoughts and feelings, which overflow me now, or not. I want
to tell that I feel, we become very good friends and I really enjoy
our friendship. I aspire to learn you more and I dare to hope that you
suppose a thought that our relations can develop more than it enough
for simple friendship. It's the way I feel. I'll look forward to your
reply as always with anticipation and impatience....
I hope that your reply will not have of a harsh nature, and I look
forward of its arrival. With tenderness, Your Darja.
Your letter means so much for me. Thank you. I so waited your letter
and so wanted to find out what you will tell me.
I have feelings and I had no such a feelings too long. You are now a part
of my life! You have changed my life! I think of you and I think of us. I see us
together and it makes me happy. I enjoy thoughts on you and I miss you every
minute of my day and night. Don't you see my feelings towards you in my
letters? I have shared with you all my feelings from depth of my soul. My answers
are embodied into my emotions which I send to you. Don't you see all this?
XXXXX, today I write to you with special worry but as well with
pleasure and hope. I really hope that everything that I will tell you
today will make you happy. Last time when I wrote you my honest letter
I had the big sadness in my heart, and even though I tried to not show it,
I think you have noticed it. XXXXX, I was sad because the boss informed
me that approximately in three weeks the accounting department will be closed
for full re-equipment and repair. And when he have told me it, I thought
my heart will stop, because when it will take place, I will not be able
to communicate with you during several months! And it has brought infinite
sadness into my heart. But after my boss informed me about close of accounting
department, the accounting department informed me that approximately in
three weeks I will get my vacation! When I thought that I can lose you for
some months, inside my soul I at once have felt that I can't simply accept
it. And I have felt that together with sadness in my heart has appeared
an other feeling - feeling of confidence, desire to make new steps instead
of simply waiting for something. I have understood that our relations are
important for me much more than I thought. And it so wonderfully. I had no
vacation for two years. And now I will have vacation. But a thoughts that
I will not be able to communicate with you, to receive your letters and
to write mine,- all these thoughts has brought a pain to me, pain that
I can't endure. I talked with Elena and she has asked me what I think to do.
And when she has asked me it, I have understood that inside my soul I already
know the answer to this question. And I have told that I do not want to spend
such a long-awaited vacation in loneliness. I can't accept a thought that
I will not talk to you XXXXX during of month or two. And I have told
that I want to meet you XXXXX! I have told her that I want to spend
my vacation with you XXXXX! I can come to you, and we can spend time
together if you want. And first I was afraid that if I will tell you
about it in the letter, you will write me that you do not want to see me
or can not meet me. And it would hurt my heart. But Elena have told, that
you XXXXX and I are such a good friends, our relations are built on
sincerity, therefore XXXXX will be happy to spend time with me. And I
really think that it would be delightfully. So, what you will say, XXXXX,
if I will offer you a meeting? Would you be happy to see me and to spend
with me several days? I cannot imagine at all how it would be wonderful.
You would show me your life, we would learn each other in a real life.
We would look into the eyes of each other, we could hold our hands, tell
each other silly stories, laugh and tease each other, watch the stars in the
night sky and have romantic evening, go to the movie or we could simply sit
on a bench in the park, and who knows what else we could do together...
I would be happy to do all this together with you, instead of again
be lonely without you and our friendship. I simply want to meet you.
I already knew and I have been told earlier, but I have found out again
all I need to do to come to your country. I already have the passport. And
I will avoid usual procedure of visa's approval. Being the doctor, I can
ask the visa on behalf of our Ministry of Health, because if the applicant
have good official support from official bodies, if the applicant have
official recommendations and directions to various sorts of conference,
seminars, - it will relieve of necessity to wait for some months the
decision of the commission, and will remove all problems connected with
necessity to prove that the purpose of travel is not emigration. Being the
doctor I will have support and guarantees from Ministry of Health of
Russian Federation, and it is certainly the best guarantor. Of course
I must visit improbable quantity of the departments, to collect improbable
quantity of documents, to find as many as possibly of other official legal
persons, institutions and people for support; to get petitions. But if
I will quickly collect all necessary documents, I will get the visa in one
or two weeks! So I have filed an application for the visa, XXXXX, with
happiness and with hope that you will be happy to spend some days with me!
I do not ask you about anything. I will use my monetary savings and I will
make everything by self. It is my vacation and I will not be a burden.
Would you be happy to spend some days with me soon, XXXXX? Anyway, we
must meet. It is possible to wait eternally. But I believe that I will get
my vacation not accidentally; and I believe that the accounting department will be
closed at the same time not accidentally as well. It is not coincidence!
It is time to make a choice, to make the decision, to take new step. Maybe
such opportunity will not be repeated again. I so long waited my vacation
and I want my vacation to be especial. What can be better than a meeting of
two friends? The first meeting. It is simply delightful and I thank destiny
that I have got such an opportunity,- an opportunity to meet my dear friend,
the opportunity to learn each other in real life, the opportunity to enjoy
time which we can spend together. And I believe that it can become the
beginning of something new in our lifes and in our relations. And I am really
happy to get a vacation because it is time which I can spend in any way I want,
and I want to spend this vacation with you XXXXX! So what will you tell?
Would you like to spend time with me? Would you be glad to meet me?
Would you be happy to have the first meeting at your airport?
I will wait for your answer with pleasure. Oh, I want to tempt you
with the pictures, I managed?(smile). Your sincere Darja.
