Russian Bride Scam: Ekaterina from Cheboksary
Here we have images of a person from Cheboksary representing herself as Ekaterina Bulatova, twenty nine years old. Although she claims to be a psychologist, she demonstrates little or no knowledge in that field.
This is the address she gave: Russian Federation. ZIP 424003, Zarubino ST. 20A-9. Ekaterina.
She contacted me on Heart 2 Heart (a free dating site) on January 18, 2003. Although I warned her I would never send her money, she continued to write. This piqued my interest. Her letters seemed so obviously contrived,. I wondered how long it would take to get to the "money shot". Within about ten days she was madly in love. Could anyone be so brazen after I specifically said no money, not one ruble, ever?
OK, so I amused myself a little. I began to go on and on about being one year younger than her mother, wouldn't that be odd. Apparently not. However when I talked about being poor, suddenly the daily letters stopped. I felt a little cheated out of my "smoking gun", so I wrote after a gap that I suddenly had an affluent job. I instantly got a letter begging forgiveness for the hiatus and explaining that she was out of town because her grandmother was sick.
Although this was no money shot, she had penned some lines which I shall always cherish, such as: " I had sad experience with the man from my city. It(he)was a little bit more senior than me. We have got acquainted with it (him) at the bottom birthes of my girlfriend and have liked each other. We met it( him) some time. It (he) was the very beautiful man and made pleasant on me. But then I have learned ( found out), that he(it) has other girl and that it(he) deceived all this time me...To me was very sick to transfer his ( its) deceit. Now I feel myself perfectly." Well I guess we've all been there.
Finally on February 16 I received the "money shot", pure effrontery for someone already warned:
Hello my love Ricardo.
For me the large happiness to receive your letter.
I do not know, how you will treat this letter.
In the summer for me it will be very difficult to receive a vacation.
As I have a vacation once a year.
Is not present, now I do not correspond with Marina, as now they on travel on Europe.
In clinic I spend(see off) advices from the people, which require my help.
Now spring mental frustration also will become aggravated. I will have a lot of work.
I buy products in the market or in shop.
Now in Russia all is accessible if only there was money.
I very well am able to prepare. I like to prepare Russian pel'meni and fried
Potatoes with курицой.
If we have free time, I with the girlfriends visit(attend) discos and cinema.
As we very much like to be engaged in sports.
Yes, my family has dinner. I very much frequently visit(attend) the mum the daddy.
My parents now work, and the brother studies in institute.
I hope, that you closely (attentively) will listen and will understand me.
To me is very sad, that I have an opportunity to write to you the letters once per day.I want to do (make) it two, three or even five times per day.
Me very much pleases, that you as want our meeting.
Yesterday I went in a travel company and learned (found out) full details concerning our meeting.
I have learned (found out), that the travel company for registration of the visa takes 357 $. We with the mum tried to find this money
But it is very difficult for us. It is the very large money for our family. I have asked the mum to sell our garden, but
She (it) does not want it to do (make). Now I do not know, that to me to do (make).
You can help me with payment of registration of my documents and visa?
It is the very large sum and I can not find her (it) soon.
My holiday is already absolutely close and if now we do not organize our meeting, it is possible we shall not meet soon. And I very much want to arrive to you and to carry out (spend) with you a lot of time. We shall go for a walk together, to talk about life, to have entertainments. I dream of joint supper at candles, and then slow dance
In your gentle embraces. I think, that you too dream of it my love.
I want to tell you, that at me such feeling, that I know you very long and for a long time.
There can be I shall be shown to you ridiculous, but with each your letter I feel, that I love you!!!!
Sometimes I can not to sleep on night and I have no appetite, I lay and I think of us much.
My mum speaks, that I am in love.
I want to tell, that I want to make your photo on the printer and to put at myself in a room.
I very much would like to see you, when I lie down to sleep and I rise in the morning.
But most of all I want to meet you my love. I live by this dream.
I want to live with you beside, to help you to do (make) harvest (cleaning) in your house, to prepare to you to eat.
Favourite I very much miss without you.
Now I shall go home also shall think of you my prince.
And tomorrow I shall search for your answer.
Kiss and love.
Amazing chutzpah, no? Similarly, although she pretends to be a psychologist, she can demonstrate no knowledge of this field.
Well I wrote back that she shouldn't bother, I'll just drop by this summer. Silence. I figure this is her little "business", writing maybe twenty letters a day in a thirty day cycle leading to the plea for money. All she needs is one victim every few months to make more than most Russian women. There is really no excuse to live like this. Hence in an effort to improve her life, I am sending this to as Many Russian Bride Scam web sites as I can find as well as US Canadian and British Immigration. Why? Because this is wrong and I do not want to see people hurt.
