Greetings my new friend XXXXXXX!
I am very pleased to receive the letter from you.
I am pleased with that that In this world there is a person which wishes to acquaintance to me.
Now I understand, that people in your country really responsible!
I am timid, therefore I am not capable to begin acquaintance.
But I hope, that we can learn each other better.
But if I start, write to you, I shall write in this letter a little about me.
I also shall send one of my photos.
My natural color of hair darkly fair-haired and brown eyes.
My birthday On November, 24th, 1973, on a horoscope I Sagittarius.
Till 1998 I lived with the parents in city Grozny, but in 1998 my parents were lost.
There can be you heard about this city, it is in the Chechen Republic, at us name it ' a hot point '.
I do not want to recollect this horror, my parents were shot by gangsters.
I managed to be rescued, now I has remained one.
After destruction of my parents,
the government of our country has allocated to me an apartment in the city of Penza,
on farther from those places.
Now I live in a two-room apartment in the city of Penza one.
I have no brothers sisters, I the only child in family.
I want to have own family. Now I shall write little bit more in detail about myself.
From 7 years I studied in high school of city Grozny. I studied very well.
After leaving school I have acted in the Penza Pedagogical Institute on faculty of foreign language.
In 1991 I have finished institute.
Since that year I work the teacher the English language at school.
Certainly it is a tough job both in physical and in the psychological attitude, but I love the work.
My work with children is more difficult than work with adults.
My work is pleasant for me, and it is pleasant to me that I can make that that useful to children.
I the lonely woman, I was never married also I have no children.
Probably it will seem to you strange, but in Russia sex is necessary for men only,
they use the girl, and then throw out her as a unnecessary thing, I do not want it!
My girlfriend has suggested me to find acquaintance through the Internet.
And now I write to you about the Internet of cafe as I have no own computer.

With the best regards.

The letter from page one and all the additional photos are exactly the same ones Tamara/Elena Zuyewa sent me starting two weeks ago(5/15/09 to 5/26/09). She sent me an unsolicited email through yahoo personals. Afterwards she gave me her personal email address to contact her. She starts out writing friendly letters. By the fifth one, she declares her love for me. By number six, she proceeds to ask for money for a passport to come to the US to marry me. I finally called her out. I told her she was a scammer. She pretended to be offended not because I called her a scammer, but she thought I was seeing another woman with same first name but different surname. She claimed to be hurt and told me that I had confused her with another Elena. I have not heard from her since. Her yahoo personal site is listed as Helena/ lovely and lonely. She never answers direct quetions. She skirts around them by switching to another subject. She's good. I confronted her about the computer she was using and told her to get a loan for passport funds because she could afford it being a'teacher'. Each time, she had an excuse.

Just wanted to add my comments, and let you all know that I received the same crap from this chick. I did the same thing.....wondered what the 'real deal' was. I knew something wasn't right from the beginning.
I received the same letters that are posted earlier in this article, word for word. Same scam, same pictures. By the 5th letter from her, she was madly in love with me. I strung her along for about a week, then I Googled her name, and found this article. The main thing I'd like to tell anyone who receives an e-mail from her is, WARNING: In the 2nd letter, she'll start asking you, and bugging you persistently for your home address, so she can 'write directly to you'. DO NOT GIVE HER YOUR HOME ADDRESS!!!! I didn't, as I was leary of doing that with someone in a foreign country. Who knows who could show up at your door!
I just wrote to her, and told her that I found this article by Google-ing her name, sent her the link to this article, and told her I wanted no further contact with her.
So, don't waste your time thinking that you've 'gotten lucky' by having this chick contact you.
You are now warned!

you were right in not giving out your home street address.
but you were not so by giving her a link to this article.
that helps educating the scammers to avoid being spotted, gives them material to copy/paste and gives them pics to steal.
Never tell a scammer where you found the info about him. tell them to fuck off, and booomm stop any comunication when you are done with the little game.
