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 match.com, but by the time I got to read her email, her match.com account was already closed. However, she had left me a yahoo email address (email@example.com) 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.
Match.com 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 match.com 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.
Even you can not imagine even yesterday the whole day i didn't take anything because of not having funds on me.

Hello, my new friend. Thank you for what you have not overlooked the
my letter. Frankly, I'm a bit 'worried and I thought you you did not
answer. But now I see your answer and a smile on my face. I am pleased
that we can know each other more closely. The city where I live is
called Salsk. Our city recently opened Internet cafe. Previously, I
never had any familiarity with the Internet. Therefore, our knowledge
for me - this is the first Internet communication. I hope that the
experience will have success. In order to continue our relationship, I
would tell you more about my story. I hope you will answer me in
return, and tell me about yourself. As already know, my name is
Oksana. I was born on 3/11/1981. Now I have 30 years. My height of
1.73 cm, my weight - 57 kg. I live with my dad and mother. I have no
brothers and sisters. I was born in one of the most interesting in the
world under the name of Russia. Russia - a country with great story,
with its own traditions and customs, which were created over the
centuries and still are today. Russia and a country of sun, beautiful
mountains and lakes. I believe that the component Russia's largest are
the people who live here. The tract distinguishing the main - the
ability to appreciate the traditions and rules. The honesty and
ability to comply - and what each citizen knows my country. Lies and
betrayals are always very punished. Even if the lie is found on every
corner. Perhaps this better not to talk. Why all just lie and say that
bad. It as he is. Worldwide, the constant lies. But I I was born into
a family honest. Where are all used to working and live honestly. Even
if you live honestly and work hard in Russia. But do not lose heart.
From early childhood I have taught to be proud. So, I had a very good
training and, above all, I understand - you must always be honest with
people and then succeed in life, then life will seem easier and you
will be able to live more happily. People never leave one another in
trouble, always ready to help in times difficult. Russian people are
very close. While the whole world is trying to fix the stone of
discord among the peoples live here. Let me tell you a little 'my
parents. My father, the Oleg and his name, driving a truck. Pope
brings food to the shops of our city. Most ice cream. My father loves
work they do. Previously, when I was little, I often turned Pope's car
work. I really liked the look and the car window. By the way, my
father and now 54 years old. Of course, I can not tell my mother
preferred. My mother, Nina's sister works in unity medical surgical.
The work of my Mom and very demanding and difficult, for reasons of
health of my mother depends largely on the people. I love and respect
my parents. As a child, I, like all children attend school. I really
liked the school because I could learn something new. A lots of
friends. But after school, socialize with many stops. Me graduated 11
classes. After school, I went to the University of a specialty
'lawyer'. The University and a very exciting time in everyone's life.
In college I learned a lot of friends, has learned the skills of my
work. I tried very hard to learn, because their parents raised me, and
I could not disappoint them. After graduation, I was faced with
finding work. One find that very hard to find jobs for young people in
our the country. Especially with no work experience. I wanted to go
work for the state, but it was very difficult. There was a strong
selection. Unfortunately I do not have a job. A hired someone who has
good friends. So I gave up and did not hang up. Realizing it was
necessary to go to medical education. Good doctors do not always
sufficient. I worked as a clerk in a grocery store. I took a crash
course. At the moment I'm working with my mother in hospital. Also
helping with the various legal issues. Helping surgeons. In general.
Something like sisters honey. But a range more extensive action. I
like my job. I try to give all better to the maximum. Here in the
hospital can be very funny. When you see that sick people become
healthy and happy. My friend, you to think, because I am addressing
you because I have all of good in life? In my life there is happiness,
what's most important - I did not love! I'm looking for the man who
could really love and respect me. I want to find a man to whom I can
trust in all things. I want to find the person with whom I can share
joy and pain. I want to find my soul mate, the piece, which I so much
is not enough! A friend of mine, maybe it was you? After all, people
are searching for your destination. I think I have time to find a man
and a family. Please tell me a story about you. I am very interested
to know of you. Are very interested in Internet communication, and as
for me first time. I look forward to your email back to me. Your new
friend from Russia.

Hello, my dear and beloved Mohamad!
Thank you very much for your kind words to me. I am ready to give all
my life! You have no idea how happy I am that our hearts were found.
My thoughts are with you and our future life together. I'll give you
all my heart. I want to be with you. I love you! My dear, you know,
today I decided to visit an agency of travel, to learn all about our
meeting. I went to travel agency great respect, many people in our
city. I asked the manager of the company and described the situation.
I have learned, what documents do, I was able to officially fly to
you. Manager reported that the flight you'll need a passport, tourist
visa, insurance and medical exam fees. The most important thing for me
at this stage to make a passport and visa. I'll buy the tickets only
after completing these documents. Tickets will elaborate for me also
company in which I am about to order a passport and visa. Preparation
of a passport takes about 1.5 to 2 weeks. The cost of a passport and
150 euro. But with a little 'more complicated visa. Is seen released
approximately the same as a passport - 1.5 to 2 weeks. This is the
most important document without which it can not fly to you. The cost
of visas, as indicated in euro. Its cost and 230 euro and also a
medical examination costs 75 euro. It compulsory insurance against
accidents 65 euro. Even in cost of passports and visas include a
variety of medical reports, photographs, government taxes, the cost of
forms. When I heard I need 520 euro, I wanted to cry. All my dreams on
Our meeting immediately collapsed. After all, I do not have many
money, my love Mohamad. I do not know what to do. Since my salary and
from 100 to 120 euro per month. As soon as we started to chat with
you, I started to save money for our meeting and now I have 110 euro.
How do you know what I miss the 410 euro, to start the registration
process of my documents. I'm really want to be with you! Are the
people most care and love me! You are all my life. You are the air we
breathe every day. I was walking the road and I thought only of you. I
wanted to write a letter to more soon. Now I sit and get out my eyes
with tears. Tears sadness and pain. I do not want to live without you.
After all, without your presence in my life right now does not make
sense! I still only a hope, that your Mohamad help my love. I think
money and entirely non-main in our lives. What is most important that
we found each other and we are happy. We love each other and there is
nothing more important in this life! But now, to meet, we need this
amount of money. Mohamad My love, you are willing to help in this
meeting, this amount of money? This will determine our future. I have
full confidence in you. So to help you in every situation. I do not
like leave! You are my guardian angel that God sent me. You are my
life. Without you there and no reason to live! I feel the warmth of
your lips, hug you and feel your hands strong. I know that you are the
kind and honest man. I can see how you are living, I can see how you
really want to be with me and it is very important to me.
I found my real love in you, Mohamad. Now, to me, one day without you
and hell. And your letters to me and me alone pursued every day.
Mohamad I am madly in love with my dear! I am grateful for the fact
that has allowed us to meet.

I would love to have a correspondence with you and get to know you a little better. Have a good mood. Your Maria This image was also posted here: Dating scammer Maria
You are so mad because of jealousy. You never will get so beautiful women in US. I wonder why your women so fat and ugly. I use internet for 3 years and I saw all blogs on yahoo just because of interest and I found out that all your women very ugly and fat. By the way do not take me as russian vodka drinker, I just learn english. Why you even aswer to strangers by e-mails and after that got crazy? You americans think you are gods, how you are wrong. I don't care about those poor girls and about you. If you find each others you are worthy it. I found this site because of one celebrity. And how you get this shit? You are so 'equitable' that i would not be surprised if you post any real girl here just because she will say about her small paying at work.
What can I say? Try and get a real woman. Or they will see your bald head and beer belly? And you can not be 'god' for them? Even for your ugly tomboy fat hometown bitches? No any chances? Oh poor american...Don't be upset. Fuck your daugters then.

You can keep her , and good luck in finding which crack is her joy buzzer. She
looks like your type of woman.

You are just a fucking stupid Russian Internet scammer with no knowledge whats going on outside your computer screen...so your business running slow now ?no money for Vodka or? Go home and eat you kartorshka and go look in the mirror and figure out how look like your self...
Karl Lagerfeld, who is no stranger to controversial remarks, did not mince his words.
Russian women. “If I was a woman in Russia I would be a lesbian, as the men are very ugly. There are a few handsome ones, like Naomi Campbell's boyfriend, but there you see the most beautiful women and the most horrible men.'
