Yeah I got these random emails too. First one was from someone called Heidi, saying she'd just arrived in the US and was looking for friends. I was bored at work, so replied, even though I live in the UK. Thought nothing of it until a few weeks later and this email from an Elizaveta arrives through. She includes some tasty snaps, so I write back to see what the deal is. I admit to having curiousity problems as far as this kind of stuff is concerned. Anyway got an email back the next day, exactly the same as all the others that have appeared on this very useful website. I copy it below:
Hi my friend, new friendI' am so glad to see that you have decided to reply, I see it is very short letter.It' s all right because you are astonished to get my letter. I want you to know that I have only good intentions and I have not any secrets.The thing is that I will work in your country for six months or so andI would like to meet a nice man to fall in love or just be closest friends. I dont want to live in Russia because I have not any chances here, it' s hardly possible to explainfrom first time but I want you to know my plans.I will work in any shop, bar or restaurant the agencythat i am going through will suggest me some locations.It will be my choice in the end as to what option to go for.So I will have a simple work till I improve my English.And I can choose any town of your area, agency will only help me to get a visa andall travel documents + some suggested placed to work in. My best friend last year met t he man from the USA when she worked there for three months, too.She had two jobs. From morning till 4 pm she workedin amusement park and after it she worked as a waitress in some bar till midnight. She was very tired of course but made very good money there.It 's special programm for young people who wants to work abroad and I think it is the right way for me , I am lost here, and I think that I look pretty enough to find a better place .I want to repeat the same way,it isonly my chance to meet a nice man. I want to work in USA or in Europe or any nice country.I 'm full of plans and different dreams and I want to share mylife with good man because I'm also full of love and tenderness,I know that I am not so beautiful like Hollywood Princess but I do hope to meet my Prince andI am sure he will be not be disappoined to meet me in the real life!This is why I am going to go through the same way.Well, I will close this letter and I do hope to get your reply.I will leave russia in two weeks or so ( I can't tell you everything exactly right now ) and I would like tobe sure that I have the man who waits for me there.I will work all day and I want to find a man to spend all free timetogether to get to know each other better.if you have any interest to meet meI will be more than happy to meet you too. I will tell you all details about me and my life if you like my pictures andwant to meet me ! please send picture of you too!!!Please don't write to me more on an mailbox email@example.com, it is a mailbox of my friendI has created new personal mailbox firstname.lastname@example.org, please write letters now only on this mailbox .I will wait your next letter. Kissssssss you , Elizaveta (it's my real name )
I think the 'it's my real name' thing is the hook. It implies she's let you into her confidence and this thing is for real.
Ooops, I have forgot to send you my picturesI hope you you will answer a.s.a.p. Elizaveta
As I said before, I have curiousity problems so of course, I wrote back:
Thanks for your email, I enjoyed reading about you and your hopes.
Also, thanks very much for sending me the pictures of yourself, you are certainly a very beautiful woman.
I admit, I was a little shocked to get your email and that's why I didn't write much in my first mail.
However, it was interesting to read your reply, so I have decided to send you an email that is a little longer back.
So how did you come across my email address?
Where are you from in Russia?
What are your favourite things?
I hope to hear back from you soon
To me this was a bit of fun, I've very happily married but as I've said too many times already, I have curiousity problems. I wanted to know what this was all about, who she was and what she was after.
Anyway, she wrote me back:
Hello my dear (what is your name?), thank you for your answer!At first I think I have to say that I am new in internet and I have only good intentions. you should know that I am not very good writer in english, please be patient to read my messages and see many mistakes. to be fair I don't know what you want to know about me,in principle I am usual girl.I think I should tell you about me,my interests,tastes and hobbies.I think I will tell youabout things I want to know about you and you will know my future questions. I am 25 years old,my birthday is December, 20, 1982. I so much don't want to get older ,when I can see old women I amgetting crazy to think that it is my future .I do all the best to keep my youth and I keep my body well.In spite of alldifficultes here I am trying to be in good condition and I do a lot of exercises to be in good shape! I am about 170 cm tall (5.5) and my weight is about 56 kg. I've been told I look well enough ,and I think that all women have own beaty. I have never been married and I don`t have children. I have one youngest sisters and it is great problem for us because we have only two rooms flat.you can't imagine what does it mean to be bornin small town in Russia,there are not any chances to l ive well,to get a good job.All young people leave towns to searchgreat luck in big cities but nobody waits for them there. I want to leave Russia,I know it sounds ugly but I know that I will be lost here like many young girls before me. It is not place to grow children and have stable future.I want to meet my right man .I think in future I can work as fitness trainer I have a certificate. My mother is my great problem too,she has a great dream to see me married and she wants to make me happy but I think it is only my business I am not a little child. She tells me every day that I should get married very soon... To be fair I am not sure I am able to explain all in first message I want to say so much! I just want you to know that I am not afraid to work,I am fairly goaloriented and I am sure you will be not disappoined to meet me in real life.I am going to spend three monthsabroad to work in any good place,agency promises to help me because it is only the way I can leave Russia.I will have all documents to travel in a few days and i will travel to moscow then,from moscow I will travel to you and they ask me about name of the city i am going to work,if you don't mind to meet me please tell me the name of your city and nearest international airport! I will book my flight from moscow!I think it would be so great to meet my love and stay there forever.I know that it is not so easy like I think but I think it is possible that I meat my real love.I want to love and to be loved I want to build our own happiness,only me and my man there. I don't smoke,I tried to smoke when I was younger.I may have a glass of red dry vine,sometimes it helps to relax. I try to take care of my body and face. I know it is all I have.My soul may have any itnterst for you later, I thinkso.I am not a little girl and I know that at first almost all men look at body ,legs and face. God created males such persons. Well,I think I am lost in my letter,I am not sure youunderstand my goals,please feel free to ask. I live in Russia, small town Pivovariha, Onezhskaya street 19, flat 7 ,it is near big city Irkutsk.My town is rather far from Moscow. Moscow is a capital of my country. I want you to reply if you understand my mind,my intentions,my soul,if not please reply too, I will continue my searching. Well, I will close this letter,I think you are tired to read it. and If you think that I should write shorter letters please tell me. I write from internet cafe inIrkutsk because there are not cafes and possibility to use internet in my small town,we have 4 digital phone number and we can't call abroad.Even to call in any big town here in Russia I have to order the call in advance.and I would like to say please don't worry if I keep silence sometimes I have no time to travel ,it is about 25 minutes by bus from my town till IrkutskPlease tell me more about you,your tastes,likes and dislikes .also I have a few impotant questions do youlike strong drinks too much?can you be very drunk?very ofthen?can you be rude with women?Well,I have to stop or I will write without ending.Kiss you !see you later. In my next e-mail I will write you more things about myself and more details about my trip and work. I will miss you, your Elizaveta
Then a little extra:
Hello again !!! I already wrote to you today, I today had problems with sending the first letter today,I am not assured that the letter has reached you, I have decided to send you this letter once againLook the attached file - my first letter today.txt Elizaveta P.S. do not forget to write to me your nearest airport
By now, I've been doing a bit of reaearch and found this very useful site, complete with the same photos and the same letters. I really cannot believe people have sent this woman money and sometimes thousands of dollars. She wouldn't do it if it wasn't lucrative, so people really need to wise up to this sh!t. These websites are very important but a little common sense has got to come into play surely.
Anyway, I wrote this back to her and, surprisingly, haven't heard from her since:
Nice to hear from frank again. You certainly have one platoon ass on a wibbly!
I want to bazooka your bosoms with shiny cars.
One day perhaps in hedgerows we can love, I think I snow and rain already!
You are very hot for my oven.
I live outside England in a chair room, it makes for thigh muscles and winston.
I have lots of money and I like to give it away to girls.
They make france almost pencil sharpen if waves break.
If you like I can give you all my money and you won't have to work.
I am a very rich man.
You can join the other girls I keep on my ceiling for roof activities.
Send me some more pictures and I'll consider you for the job.
It brings drink, while water frost in umbrellas doesn't.
Look forward to hearing from you, I'm falling out live already
I think my gobble-de-gook worked.
MEN -- DON'T BE SUCKED IN BY HOT GIRLS!!!!!
For me, this all began with an email from her showing up out of the blue. So, I opened it, read it and replied for the hell of it. After about a day or two I received a reply. After talking to her for a few weeks it seemed like something legitimate then came the request for the money, $990 US dollars to be exact.
She also sent me several photos and I have to say that the few photos already posted on this site are some of the photos I have also received.
Sadly, something too good to be true.

Yeh this sneaky little russian tart tryed to make a pass on me aswell....scary that they can gain my info like that from the net.
anonymous from Portugal
Yeah I got this one too. All the photos linked with links bellow. Never touch those links, if you have, please run an anti-virus anti-trojan anti-whatever, or in best case, just reformat your PC. I suspect you can get keyloggers or something worse from those links.
Those awarenesses apart, she's pretty good looking. :p
