Dating scam from Kazan, Russia - Part 1

I would like to warn fellow males from a scam artist, located in Russia.

Click to see more..
I had a profile posted on an American dating web site and a female from my area answered me. Her letter was a few lines long, in good English and she seemed honest and cute, so I replied.

The letter said she had a read-only trial account and would not be able to receive messages, so she included a yahoo email address. She asked me to write to this yahoo email address. I did this and a few days later her trial account was gone, she explained that she deleted it because she found me. (that is what she answered, when I asked her about it)

This girl claimed to live in Kazan, Tartastan, 26 years old and called herself Barbi.
There was something suspicious about her letters, in particular I always had the
impression that she did not really read mine every time. Sometimes she wrote
personal, matching replies, then sometimes not. her photos of which she sent
about 25 so far, had number like 5.jpg, 6.jpg, 35.jpg etc.

Yesterday I did a query for some phrases of some of her emails and found them
posted on 2 other web sites. Apparently she wrote identical letters to other guys
using different names and different pictures. She or he asked those guys for money,
supposedly for tickets or visa paperwork. I guess I am lucky that she never asked
me for any money. However, I felt fooled when I saw "my" emails had also been
sent in parts to other guys.

For that reason I will post her here letters. I know that parts of these letters
have been posted on 2 other sites, but not all.
I include the full headers in the first email. The sender comes from a russian
dial-up but in another email I sent her a URL to one of my web sites and apparantly
"she" uses some sort of satellite DSL for the downstream, the IP number was
84.xx (to be filled in later).

as far as language/phrases repeating , i think that a googletype translator
is often used, legit or otherwise purposes, that translates the typed russian
page into english(with some words not translated).
do you, anyone, know if the ip route source is an internet cafe where many
people could be independantly using the same service??

Scotty from United States  
I been talking with 'helga' here is the frist letter:

Hello Scotty. How are you? I'm fine. Thanks that you answered on my message. In an Internet matching service I found some profiles of people who seem to fit mine. I liked your profile and decided to send you a message because you seem interesting. I hope that you can take some time to start interacting with me so we can find out more about each other. let me tell you a little about myself: I am young woman, 27 years old. I am single and I live in an apartment with my parents. After finishing high school, I working as a dance teacher. I very much like to dance! It is fine work. I teach people to dance various dances. Adult people, elderly and children - I teach all people. Dance - language of love. I like to travel to different places, but I does not do it often. I have many friends with whom I sometimes spend time, play volleyball and tennis, and enjoy other entertainment. I attached two pictures so you can see how I'm looking. And of course, I would love to see some pics of yours. Please ask me things interesting to you about me and inform me some information about you: What do you love an entertainment? What do your character? What qualities do you love in women? Do you ever had a wife? I shall answer on your questions and inform you more about myself in following E-mails! Write to me on this E-mail address: By the way my name is Helga. This name is more pleasant to me. I very much would
want that you named me so. O.K.? I shall be wait for your messages.

HI Scotty! I was pleased to receive your reciprocal message. Thank for
your picture, it was very much pleasant for me. I shall be save it.
Scotty You e-mail means for me, that I was interesting to you too.
Scotty, do You really, think picture of me nice? - OK, in the
following messages I shall send you other pictures of me. Scotty, I
have a lot of questions to you and I would like to ask them in the
messages, I hope you will allow answer to me - OK? You for me nice
person, and it is important for me to know on this questions your
opinion on some things. I think, that you read my structure and could
see there, that I haves serious intentions to get acquainted with good
person for relations. I shall try to tell you a little about my
character. I don't know how start it, I think, that I am very romantic
person. I like communicating with people, it is pleasant for me good
humour. I always try to be a little mysterious for men. Woman always
should be some riddle, as in a detective story. The solution will be
at the end of the book. I want that man read my book all our life. And
it should be interesting. I very much appreciate such qualities in
people, as fidelity and honesty. I believe in love, and I think it
very valuable thing which needs to be protected. I am jealous person,
very much. I adore, when pay compliments to me and I'm ready to listen them constantly. For me it is necessary, that around of me there was a cleanliness and order, I am frequently engaged cleaning. I also like cooking. I'm prepare meal and various tasty things. It is pleasant to me romantic relations between Man and Woman, but probably all women dream to get acquainted with good person, to have with him beautiful romantic relations. But frequently such things come to end very quickly. I have no intention to spend myself on such acquaintances.While I have not met in my life such person, to which I would decide to give myself and my life. But I would be desirable to find such person. I think, that for the woman the main thing, which she want to have in her life not a career or other success. No! I think, it is - a strong family and favourite person to which I am ready to give all my care of him. Tell me please, what woman do you dream to meet in your life? Excuse Scotty, that I ask you to discuss such frank thing with person whom you know couple of days. But it is interesting to me to know this thing about you. I have shortly written to you my outlooks about my life, if it will be interesting to you, then we can discuss these themes in more detail. I shall wait for yours e-mail.

Hi Scotty. I am glad to receive again your message. Every day we start
to learn each other much better and it is interesting thing for me
your e-mail. Last time in my soul was boredom, any joyful things
wasn't occurs in my life and your message for me now as a solar beam. Scotty, I send you other picture of me. I hope, that you will like it. Tell me more in detail about your family. How many relatives do you have? What relation do you have with them? How often do you meet them? In my family relations are very much close. I already Informed you, that I live with mum and daddy. We live in a cosy apartment, there are three inhabited rooms, kitchen, balcony and a bathroom. I have my own room. I am a only child in our family. Name of my father is Michael, he is 51 years old and he works as a master on factory. My mother's name is Kristina, she is 48 years old. She does not work now, already some years and she engaged in housekeeping. We like each other, sometimes we are going out somewhere. In summer we go on a beach and on fishing. During winter period of time we are going for a skating and a skiing. It is a good time for me! In private life I have emptiness. My last relations were ended in October last year. I had met some good boyfriends (two). But now it is in the past. In first time we were together not for a long time. We were young. Correctly, he still was young for me, though he was more senior than me. He a little understood in this life. He had other purposes rather than I. We have left... In last time all was good. We loved each other. But...Always is BUT! He was very, very much jealous man. He was jealous me
of each his and my friends... Even to unfamiliar people. As I speak
earlier to you, I'm too jealous. But for all there are limits. In one
fine day I have seen him in our bed with other woman (fellow worker).
After that I began more legible in mutual relations with men. And till
now I cant find the considerable person. Among my associates of people I cannot allocate anybody for serious relations. Good men become is ever less and feel annoyingly disappointment when you think that has met suitable person in next time. And also therefore I have addressed in service acquaintances. Probably here I can find person who will be love me, appreciate and understand. It is not important for me his financial situation and work which he makes. I have specified in a structure that I search more older man because I think, that person who has lived enough years, already has experience and has knows many things about our life and can appreciate women and address with them. I shall be ready to give all myself without rest to such person and I think, that the main advantage of the woman is fidelity and skill to make family happy, without quarrels and conflicts. On it I finish my letter. Scotty, write to me your ideas that I has told to you. I wait for your messages.

Yours Helga .

Hi Scotty. It is pleasant, that you studied my some ideas in the last
message. Scotty, I usually do not tell anybody about my deep ideas and opinions, but I has written it to you , because I has felt desire to
open it to you. I want to tell you something... People meet once. They
get acquainted. They begin to meet. Any force of them draws. They want to be together to learn each other better to like each other. Some people when learned other person, they have enough of it, and anything does not occur any more... 'The Book became read'... 'Book' put on a shelf in a case. Either for him or her it is necessary other 'book'...Some people all life loving, they reading this 'book' all life. Other people when will read this 'book', do not put it on a shelf in a case, and writes itself continuation of this book. Each person is the writer of his or her life if he or she wants... I am 'writer'. I am more independent woman, but probably sometimes I need a man, which I can open myself and trust - sometimes it happens, hardly reflect on all these things. I am glad, that has found you, and you understanding me, you see it happens not often. Thank Scotty , that you have written to me some details about your life and family, I closely studied it. It has helped me more well understand you and your life and you become closer man to me. Scotty now I must go to do some businesses and it is necessary meet my friends. By the way I told by him, that I got acquainted with you, and to my parents too. Have good day. I wait for your letters.

Yours Helga.
Dear Scotty! Thanks for this e-mail from you. Your letters are very
pleasant for me. This week there is a new theme for considerings, and
these new ideas excite me. I do not know how are you Scotty, but for
me our exchange e-mail becomes more important. It is a new emotions in my quiet heart. For me it is unusual, to get acquainted with the man on e-mail, who lives faraway from me, us divides thousand miles and it is possible to have relations. Scotty you will may be very much surprised to learn that I live to regret is far from you. Otherwise it was not necessary for us wrote e-mail, to learn each other. I have read in the newspaper (it was already probably for a long time) that in other advanced countries (Europe and Northern America) meets situation, that women are more thoughtless than men. It is the truth? I very much would like to learn your opinion, also why do you search for the woman on the Internet. I did not inform you earlier Scotty my address because it is not enough knew you. I live in average area of Russia, in the city Kazan. I am regretting, it is far from you, therefore it was necessary for us much e-mail, to find out each other. We could meet, talk, to spend some time together and it is quite good to find out each other. But for us it will be not a fast way. You will begin doubt probably in me. I shall understand you if you will not want to write me any more... But Scotty do not make fast conclusions of that I live in Russia. Russia very big and multinational country.Here as well as in your country many various people. All people different... It would be impossible to find any person which it is similar to another. I don't want miss any opportunity.... It is necessary to fight always. I try to be such. But I hope, that it will not be problem for us if we shall decide to make it in the future. I already made some travel to other countries. I travelled, as a tourist, to Europe (Turkey, France and England). Therefore Scotty , you should not have excitements that we have distance between us. I such woman, if I shall like the person for a meeting with him, I shall reach even on the moon. In our days is not a problem to make such travel. I not I worry about it and even I have devoted feelings, having got acquainted with person on the other hand. For me it is very interesting feelings - to find out the person with other culture, thinking, traditions. It is one of things - which draws me to you. It is not the main thing, but it's a new and interesting. Probably if our relations will be strong and you Scotty, you can find out the mysterious Russian woman. I hope, that for you it is interesting to find out and feel love of such woman? I think, dear Scotty that you cannot resist for a long time to my female magic, if happen so, that we shall be person to person. On it I finish my message to you Scotty. I wait for your messages.

Yours Helga.

Hi mine lovely! I hope, that at you all OK! It was pleasant for me to
read your message and thank for your words. I send you other picture, probably to those pictures which you already saw, you got used. I hope, that This picture will give again to you good emotions. Today my work is finished earlier and I, having written to you this letter, I shall prepare for a dinner for my family. Mine to mum is sick a little and today to me to prepare for it. By the way, dear, what foodstuffs is loved for you? That you prefer; sweets, meat, a fish? Inform me it Scotty. I am able to consult not bad on to kitchen, my mum cared of it many years back. You can be convinced of it, in due time. I easily make various salads, soups, and also game and a fish. In the greater degree I prefer a fish, and also to me very much to like fruit; kivi, bananas, pineapples and a melon. Today houses I shall prepare for the chinese hen and vegetable salad. Probably you Scotty, love the tasty foodstuffs. We have proverb; ' the way to heart of the man - passes through his stomach! ' I was many times convinced of it when observed of my father. Therefore Scotty, I shall reach to your heart with the help of my culinary abilities. It is a joke!!! Now I go on kitchen . I hope, that mine the daddy will be pleased. I wait for your messages! My kisses.

this is the last one which was 12-18-05

Hi mine dear Scotty! Have good day! I am glad, that my messages pleasant for you. How you feel yourself , dear? I - ok. I a little excited, and yesterday I hardly fell asleep. I was grasped with an idea about to our meeting. For me and I have this joyful event from it much emotions. Such as excitement both the big impatience and expectation of this day . You have brought the whole sea of emotions in my life Scotty, and it is difficult for me with it to consult, but I can tell, that it pleasantly and gave me new push and the purpose for life. I think, lovely, that it is necessary for us to arrange our meeting so that there were no difficulties and inconveniences in our affairs. I can arrange on my work, that to have some days free for me. Scotty, and your work will be to allow you to make it? Probably you have the intense schedule with the work also you should be absent. Then we can meet more close from you or even I could arrive to you on some days. For me there is no problem to make longer travel. If such way more convenient for you and my arrival to not create inconvenience for you Scotty, let's choose this plan. It for me even it is more good, because I can see as you live , your friends, you can show me the city and various, , that you can loved for you, a place. And if for you it is necessary to visit the work. My work not so important also can manage without me, therefore I do not worry about the affairs. Inform me dear, the opinions! If it is a good way for you too I shall make preparations for travel. My kisses and embraces.

I've ask here what she does for work, to which i have yet to get a re-ply (asked 3 times) i get two picture with each email, nice young Girl. I kinda figured something wasn't right, so I'm going with this to see how far i can take it, thank you for your time....

Hey Fellows, even i was cheated by her(Barbi). But at me she introduced as Anastasiya Selivaeva, living in Ulyanovsk. I even received some newer Pictures and probably a fake of her Passport from her.
But the highlight might be, that with the help of this page i wrote a quite good eMail to this scam, and got the following answer:

Well, you have opened me. Yes, I understand, that I do bad things. It
is very unpleasant to me to be engaged in it. It is very a shame with
it. But it is easy to you to reason, when you live in the rich and
strong country. You always have good meal, carry good clothes and have
various entertainments. In our country we have no anything. The state
pays to the students 30 dollars per one month. You tell to me can live
on this money? And me to have to pay for study, apartment and meal. I
tried to find good, honour work. But the students do not accept on
good, paid work. That I need to do. I do not want to trade in the
body. I know, you the rich people. You can to yourselves allow to
spend some money to such entertainments. I understand what to earn on
bread in such a way very bad. Forgive me for my deceit. Anastas.
At least he /she didn´t make a secret of her business. Guess these guys/girls are really confused. But at least scamming others won´t lead them to success. That´s what i told them.
So guys, don´t let yourself be blinded by the words you might want to hear from a woman. Regards F.

Its very easy not to be hooked up...
1-Do not open any pictures..Cause pictures are the gates for them..
2-They are not even woman, they are hackers..
3-When you received a letter from any of them; what you have to do is;
a-Copy a long sentences from the letter and paste it through the google or yahoo..
b-you will see the results as the same letters has been sent many times..
4-So all above will make you sure that its a trick and a hook to get you..

About a week ago, I was contacted by the '28 year-old english teacher','Ekaterina Ishkova' from KAZAN, through MATCH.COM. EKATERINALEDY2321@RAMBLER.RU.

I emailed 'her' back. Through MATCH.COM, I wrote... 'I won't use your .RU address until I get to know you better'. 'She' never wrote back after that first 'contact'.

Not to brag, but... I'm a bit 'street saavy'. I've dealt with 'street-scum' before in the 'Big Apple'. I was suspicious, so I decided to do a little research.

I found 'this' web site and BANG... their 'she' was. Never heard of 'Russian women on-line scams' before. Using common sense, and NEVER Russian, excuse me, rushing into anything, I spotted a crook.

Keep up the good work fellas, and NEVER get caught with your pants down and around your ankles.

Thanks a bunch for posting this. I have exactly the same thing happening to me. The first letters were identical to the ones posted above but the pictures were of a different woman. I was not looking for a mail order bride when she contacted me but turns out, guess what, she would go to the moon to find the love of her life.

Was not sure it was a scam but her pictures were too good to be true, and little things keep nagging at me. I will continue to write her, maybe she will give me some good pictures to post on black list site.

I am very dissapointed that I seem that deserate to have this scumbag think I would fall for it. Oh well.

Your all wrong! It's not a scam!
She choose me over all you other guys! 25 years her senior and she still choose me!
I sent her $40,000 and she will be here any day now. After I finish the mortgage on the house and send another $20,000 to bribe the guards at the airport. She is having trouble with the passport.
She said we will have sex 3 times a day and she will do what ever I ask and marry me.
Her curent address is and she has changed her name to Nadia.
She is mine, all mine!!!

HA, HA... VERY FUNNY!!! A comedian.

I know there is an e-x-t-r-e-m-e-l-y slim chance you're sending thousands of dollars to a FICTICIOUS character. If you are... you're 'hard-up', and VERY STUPID!!!

Have a nice day...

OK, I'm a commedian. Sorry, I could not resist. Actually I have not sent her/him/it any money yet. Good thing I checked this web site first.

Although I did send a couple pictures and my phone # before that little voice in the back of my head got my attention. I just hope my picture and # don't show up on the gay version of this scam.
