If you get sick of them here's a hint
First check if they have THE BAT, usually means a scam and here's a good answer

I'm a member of the ???? Federal Police. By opening this email you have now installed an undetectable stealth spybot service on your computer, you can try and find it but you never will. It was developed by the CIA and now they, InterPol, your local law enforcement and your government are aware of all computer activity by this machine and any networked to it.

I have been sent same letter format with slightly different personalized details. She has different pictures but all the same letters as Mike, again with minor variations likely to avoid googling. She calls herself Nadezhda Vinogradova (Nadya), from Samara. Email is I wonder if these girls all use a stock format letter lol. I notice Nadya starts with a small paragraph to answer a few questions I asked early in letter, or small responses. After that stock format.

'I to you wanted to tell about that as I live right now. It I think very important for us to know about each other as much as possible. I from enough big family. I have the younger sister and the senior brother. My brother is already married. A name of my brother Oleg. My sister is more younger than me and her name Svetlana. She for the present to study at university. I live in a separate apartment. My brother also lives now with the family in a separate apartment. However he lives in the city of Nizhni Novgorod. We are lucky enough to meet only a few once a year. he comes to us. My parents now live near to me. They live four together: the daddy, mum, the sister and the grandmother. Mine the daddy Peter, a name of mum Alain. A name of grandmother Tatyana. The daddy and mum now work. Mine the daddy the engineer. he works in the building company. My mum works in hospital. She the doctor. I frequently invite my parents to me on a visit and also I go on a visit to parents! The daddy and mum live together 31 year!'

'fairly to tell, I knew that you will write to me! I felt it! It really brings to me pleasure, that I have received the answer to my letter!I want to tell at once, that I also have written to two more other men. However they yet have not written back. Probably later they will write to me. I hope, that you not against I wrote not only to you. I could not speak about it. You have written to me to the first and consequently I shall concern to your letter especially closely!'

'Today I had a lot of work. We shall soon have meeting and I should prepare the report. By the way! I have told nothing to you about my work. I work in insurance company ' GUTO - insurance '. Our company is engaged in insurance of cars. I work as the senior head of a sales department. I on this post 2 years! My work pays to me good money. I have worthy residing. I work, I to get tired on work. I receive fair money for the work.'

'I the strong woman and I also have money for this purpose. I should tell also, that I could save approximately 1000 $ for this purpose. I would have more, but I have paid taxes and also I helped to pay to parents training of my sister. I approximately counted my expenses. I should go to Moscow by train and back. I should pay also for the visa, for the passport, for many other documents. Also I should live in Moscow in hotel some time and pay for residing and for transport. I think, that I 1000 $ will be spent for this purpose only. I read on the Internet, that it will be necessary for me to show the ticket back to Russia. Without it to me will not allow the visa.'

Watch out for the letter format. Met her on lavalife. Her profile was gone within a week.

Another picture of Nadya. She even called me by telephone once. I took message only. So beware she can be convincing. She also sent song with one email. Quite a well thought out effort.

One last look of Nadya. She sent many pictures, but some have different looks. Not even convinced they are all the same girl.

thanks for posting!!

Although it may seem to you that you're being scammed by a girl, the vast majority of Russian dating scammers are actually GUYS.. mostly students, working in organized cells known as 'offices' - in or around Yoshkar Ola, the capital of Mari El republic, sometimes in Chuvashia....and occasionally further afield.

Most of them are VERY lazy and only looking for quick cash money. They use email extractor programs to get your mail addresses (if you don't have a profile on a dating site, that is)...e.g:

...and multiple identities with copied form mails and spam programs on automatic reply, very often the BAT!, with which they can personalize small parts of each letter if necessary.

They mostly won't read your mails at all until after the pay-off -- known as the 'money letter' -- especially if they're in English -- because they just don't have time, ie because they're spamming, and trying to scam, as many guys as they can (economies of scale).....and also because they're semi-literate low-lifes who can't speak much English anyway. They call this initial phase 'zakidka' -- which means 'fill 'em up' in scammer slang. IN OTHER WORDS, you can write almost anything in your replies and they won't notice, the scammers only get interested when they're curious to see if you've taken the bait.

Furthermore, it's virtually guaranteed that the girls in these scam pics aren't directly involved in the scamming because the scammers generally steal their pics from websites, blogs and dating profiles or pay unsuspecting girl friends for them, or buy and exchange them on scammer websites. Mostly they steal them! (Once an experienced Russian scammer actually admitted to me that he stole all his pics from and Occasionally they'll use a local girl for a pic set, usually a scammer groupie.

If you received a phone call, it's because real female accomplices are occasionally involved either to phone a guy up, nearly always a one-off for the sake of credibility, or to pick up the loot at Western Union.

And more recently, the majority of Russian scammers have started using proxy servers or IP spoofing to hide their real locations so ALL YOU REALLY NEED TO DO IS TRACE THEIR IP ADDRESS to confirm the scam! (if you haven't worked it out already, of course). Untraceable IP address = scam.

Well, i got me one. I have been carrying on with him/her/it for about 3-4 days. I will keep it going. I have asked for new photos and proof and have never gotten an answer on the topic. I have however been getting all the same letters on this page. the email is

It claims its name is Ekaterina. They picked a very nice looking girl, I will give em that. Here is the site the scammer got the pics from.

The scam started from yahoo personals. I am going to keep it up. Maybe if I waste their time on me, they won't fool that one poor sap who fell for it.
