OK, I cannot seem to figure out how to start a new thread with her name in it. I have spent 3 days looking at scam sights for this girl, finally found a couple! Kind of a bummer, she is a hottie, but not unexpected. Goes by the name of Alena Pikusova and she says she if from Kostroma, Russia. I have been talking to her for about 2 weeks, says she works for an advertising agency. Initial contact was from her on and her profile (was gone before I could look at it, responded to her at her 'prefered' address out of match, and it went from there. Oh, and all of her emails to me from the .ru address were replies and she would toss a new heading after the Re: . Seems she is a newer one, I have not seen her on the other sites yet, she will be though! Ill toss in a few of her emails, usual stuff really, lots of fluff about me being what she wants, yadda yadda yadda. I was tired last night when I last wrote her, she was about to set the hook and was 'going to moscow to work on getting visa' I may have tipped my hat that I was on to her. I should know by Monday if she will write again.

Intro letter from
I would like to get acquainted with you; you have seemed to me very interesting by the man, and I hope, that you want to learn me too. First of all, let me to be represented. My name - Alena. You will be, probably, are surprised to receive this letter.
I want to tell to you about the purposes of my life and a little about myself. I - the educated and cheerful woman. It will be very good, if you look at my picture. It will be the best way to judge my appearance. I have some photos, and I shall be, is pleased to send you some from photos so that you could see me better. My e-mail is, I always dreamed to find my love. I search for my soul mate! My second half in my life!!! I want to tell to you, that I do not search for an easy life. I search for my happiness in a life. You understand? I like to work; I like to have a fair life. I dream to create family and to care about my loved. I want the person who loves me and also to care of me. I love tenderness and kindness in the person. Also I want to find the decent and fair person. I am young, and I want to think of my family. I want to create healthy and strong family in a plenty of good statuses for a life! I shall wait, and I hope, that you will not ignore my letter. Thanks! Sincerely yours, Alena.
P. S. I have search to you which you have written to me on this address of e-mail: And it would be more convenient for me because I cannot pay completely my membership in the given site. I shall look forward to hearing from you impatiently!!!

Second Letter, first one from the address, headers added for those that know how to decipher them, I could not make heads or tails of it. I thought I heard that a 'reply' somehow messes up a DNS or whois search somehow so thought the info was bogus anyway. I also know that the use of the bat! mailer program is a bad sign. I googled her last name and I got alot of hits for Slovakian (.sk) websites, came up empty adding her first name to it though. Tried to find a white pages for Kostroma, Russia after I stumbled across a yellow pages directory with no luck. I also sent her a photo from google earth of the city and asked her to point out about where she lives but she said she could not. 2 rivers join in the middle of the city, how hard could it be to reference of those and the bridges across them to figure out about where you live?

Hello Dave,
I am glad to receive today your letter. Thank you very much that you
found time to write a letter to me. I waited for it from you very much.
You have made today my day especially happy, you have decorated it with
this letter. I want to say, that I am a cheerful girl. Usually I
dont hesitate by dialogue with people, but now I am excited. I hardly
can get hands on keys of the keyboard. My heart is beaten more rapidly!
First of all, I I worry that you will have a problem in understanding
of my English language. I studied the English language at school, and
then at university. Probably my English, differs from yours colloquial
one. Can you understand what I speak you? If something will be not
clear for you, do not hesitate to ask about it. I do not want, that
there will be the essential barrier of language between us.
I really live in Russia, I live in city Kostroma. Many kilometers
divide us, but I hope, that it will not be a problem for our communication.
I want to tell to you, that I dont like the Russian men and there is
for a reason for it if for you it is interesting, I can tell to you in
the following letter. I have solved to look for the love outside
Russia, I do not know why, but I like United Kingdom. I have addressed to
agency of
acquaintances, which is to be in our city. I filled in various
questionnaires, answered some questions, and they sad me that in the first day
will be uneasy to find men who fully match me. They advised me to come
to agency in some days. Yesterday I come to the agency of acquaintances
and some profiles of men who mostly match me were presented to me. Also
I was informed that, that match rate in some cases reached 95 percent.
It is a pity, that on my profile it was not possible to place a photo
on my profile, agency informed, that it will be difficult. I shall send
the photo to you today. Dave, I hope you like my photo. Please, send to
me your photos too!
Now, probably I should tell you about myself. I am 29 old year, my
Birthday is on July, 10, 1977. I am 173, my weight is 55kg, I try now to
transfer them into your metric system. My growth 5 ' 8, my weight of
121 feet. You better judge my appearance on my photo. I care about my
appearance very much, I attend courses of aerobics and fitness, it
helps me to keep my body and elegance top-level. It is very important for
me because I am a girl and I must be beautiful. Probably it will be
interesting for you to know about my work. I work as a advertisment agent.
I am engaged in designing of advertising famous trade marks in Russia.
Various orders come to us. I have higher education on the speciality
' Marketing and Advertising Business '. I like my work very much. I
like it because it helps me to communicate with different people and we
have a rallied group of workers. In our group the success of one
employee depends on the previous success of other employees. Our friendship
and unity are connected just with it. Work allows me to express myself
and my individuality.
My work helps me to be well-being. I live to work and I work to live. I
live an independent life, and I liked, I do not like to need something.
I live with my sister in two room apartment. The majority of the
population in Russia lives in apartments.
My parents live separately from us in a country house, they like
silence and fresh air.
Our family lives friendly. I love and respect my parents, because they
have presented me the most valuable thing that I have - my life. Also,
parents raised me, brought me up very well, and give me good education.
I am grateful to my parents for everything, that they have made for me.
Dave, please tell me about your family.
Dave, I also want to tell you, that my purposes are very serious. I
want to find the man of my love. I want to have serious relationship
and have a good family in which relations will be formed upon love,
mutual understanding, respect, friendship and trust. These traits are very
important for me. I want to find the man, who will be happy together
with me and will support me in despair. Please, tell me about yours
in your live. It is interesting to me to know about it.
I am really interested in communicating with you. I had never had
communicated with a man from in another country. I shall be glad to hear
about you, about your family, your life. It is also interesting for me
where you work.
Dave, please tell me, does the city where you live have places which
are worth to see - theatres, exhibitions, museums? I like to visit
such a kind of establishments in our city. In last weekend I have
visited a planetarium with my friends. It was great, we had possibility to
observe the star sky, also we observed planets. I liked it very much.
Ok, Dave, I have to finish my the letter. I hope, you take my letter
seriously. I want you take my letter with gravity and responsibility.
I hope, it was interesting for you to know about me, and I hope it
takes not much time for you to read my letter.
Please, write to me. I wait with impatience for your letter. Have a
nice day! Sincerely, Alena

Good day, Dave!
How is your day today? How is the weather in your region?
I am glad to receive today your letter. It is very unusual to receive
letters from you, in fact you are a man from other country.
Yes, I am excited, when I read your letter. Your letter is very
interesting for me. I never thought, that I shall have acquaintance
and correspondence with a man from other country. It is very
interesting for me. Also, I am glad to that you liked my photos. I hope,
you are truthful and sincere in your letters. Just at the beginning of
our dialogue I want to ask you to be sincere with me.
As I appriciate revelation and sincerity.
Yes, I know, that you live in the USA, but I have really told that is
pleasant to me United Kingdom. I regret, that I have confused you.
I am glad to receive set of your photos today. You beautiful the man. I
like your smile, your kind eyes. Also I can see, that you the
big fan of fishing.
It is probably interesting for you, why I have decided to look for a
man outside Russia. I had an unsuccessful experience of attitudes
with a man in Russia. It is not pleasant for me to remember it and
consequently I shall be brief in the story. I had good relations
with one man, those relations lasted within one year, but then we
parted. To all fault became that he deceived me. he did not
appriciate my feelings. You know, Dave, just from the first day of our
with him acquaintance he told me about love, he said me
many compliments, and I trusted him, as a naive girl. I trusted his
every word. His name was Andrey, he was older than me, he was 28 ,
and I was 23. We had good relations with him, had very good and strong
friendship, I began to feel, that I love him. But one day when
I walked together with my girlfriends in a park. I saw Andrey, he went
in the company of a young woman and a child. He passed by and
as though he did not noticed me, but I knew, that he saw me. I was in
anger, my eyes filled by tears, and I hardly kept not crying.
My girlfriends supported me, I forced myself to stop dialogue with him.
I have made it! In three days, he called me and I said that
everything had ended between us, he said he had never loved me,he
treated all we had as a game.
Dave, probably, you do not imagine at all how it was painful for me to
hear such words from him. The girl, with whom he walked
in the park, was his wife, moreover they had a child. I could do
nothing, I did not want to destroy family and to cause sufferings
to his wife and the child.
I am sure that his wife knew nothing about his friendship with me.
Such a relation took place in my past life. I have been severely
injured, and consequently, I do not want to have any attitudes
with men in Russia. Certainly, I understand, that it is impossible to
judge all men on the example of one person , but I cannot do
it. Now I am afraid of having relations with a Russian man that is why
I have decided to look for friends from other country.
Dave, I hope you understood me and my last experience? It was hard to
remember it, but now this situation is in the past.
Sometimes I remember it, but anyway I have another life now.
Today I have a usual working day. Dave, I want also to tell you, that I
write the letters for you from my work. I have a computer
at home, but I have no service of the Internet.
I and my sister have recently begun to live in a new apartment and now
she has no telephone and Internet service. But soon they will
be installed.
But it is not difficult for me to write a letter from my work, it
brings me a big interest to correspondent with you . It seems
to me, that you are a good man, though it is difficult to judge the
person according several letters. Dave, I want to tell you,
that I do not want to hurry up, I want to study more about you, and
about your life. I have been deceived in the past, and I do not
want to repeat this bitter experience. The Internet a featureless
thing, here can be a lot of deceit, that is why I ask you to be
sincere with me. I am sincere and frank with you.
My parents always learned me to speak only the truth, and never to
deceive other people.
I am grateful to them for good, worthy training and education.
Dave, to you, probably, it will be interesting to learn about my
family. My mother's name is Maria, my mum works, as a chief
accountant at an enterprise. My father's name is Oleg, he works as a
engineer in firm of refrigerators manufacture. Also I have
a sister who is younger than me. My sister's name is Kristina, she
studies in a college, she is 18, my sister left school last
year and entered in college. She studies at the Faculty of law, on a
speciality 'Jurisprudence'. I appriciate a choice of a
profession of my sister!
I shall apply today to the letter of a photo which have been made on my
workplace. So I look, when I write to you the letter.
I has helped me to make these photos the colleague on work. I hope,
that they will like you!
Tell me about your family. It will be very interesting for me.
With it I shall finish the letter to you. It is necessary for me to
continue the work.
I wait with impatience for your answer tomorrow, also I want to look at
your photos, it would be very pleasant for me.
Your friend Alena. Bye-Bye

She says these are her parents, maybe someone should tell them that their daughter is trying to scam money from men!

Thats all of her I have, If anyone has already gotten to the fake passport pic or any others, I would love to get them from you so I could maybe beat her to the punch! Oh look, the embassy sent me a copy of your passport!! You told them all about me didnt you!! or I got into your hard drive and borrowed these, is that all right?? :) It's a pity these girls are doing this crap. <sigh> Hope the word gets out about this stuff. Is now more of a game for me. My first scam I rebuffed without even knowing these scam sites existed, told her I would give her the money AFTER she got off the plane here!
Email to above address if you have any pics of this cutey or her passport.

Hey Anonymous,

I doubt she have arrive to you after you sent her money and now you have the wonderful daughter. You cannot have the wonderful daugher a week after I post this letter. I think it takes more like nine months to get the wonderful daughter. As I wrote this report I was in contact with her, at this very moment of my post, she is 'SUPPOSEDLY' in Moscow trying to get pappers to come see me. I ask you, Mr. Lucky to post a photo of the happy couple TOGETHER in the same photo. I was not the fool for thrown the beatiful girl, she never got the chance to scame me is all.
